Barrage!

Friday, May 7th, was a special night in St. Joseph. It was the night that Barrage came to town. D and I were fortunate enough to get tickets to the performance at St Joseph High School. Oh what a treat it was!

If you're not familiar with Barrage I'll give you the synopsis and refer you to their web site. In short, it is an 8-member musical group consisting of 5 violinists, 2 guitarists, and a drummer. But they are so much more than that! They sing and dance while playing amazing music... it's a very theatrical performance!


I'd like to tell you more about it but it's one of those things that you just have to experience in person to truly appreciate. I understand this was the third time this group has played in St. Joseph and if they should make a return visit I'd strongly encourage you to see them. They play a wide variety of music including, country, rock, Russian folk tunes, jazz, and classics... and some music that just can't be classified ;-)

Here's a picture of them on stage playing with members of St Joseph HS's string orchestra.


They put on a high energy performance so there's no danger of you falling asleep, LOL!

One of the truly nice things about St Joseph is the cultural entertainment you find here. Barrage is just one example, and it was a terrific one!

  1. I also saw the Barrage show... wow, you are right. This was a great show. Ironically I was listening to their CD when I saw your posting. Nice article, as always.

  2. Thanks KentV! I bought both of the CDs that they had for sale at the show and I was listening to one when I wrote the article. I guess we were both on the same wave length. :-)

    Great sounds!
