LPfunK & the Cheerful Colony, a band of actor/musicians, perform their multi-media infused rock opera, "ITHACA: a Perpetual Shredfest!", the sonic interpretation of a journey through New York City in the first decade of the new milennium during the final phases of the analog/digital conversion.

Biography

LPfunK & the Cheerful Colony are a rock'n'roll/theatre collective, whose vision is to create conceptual pieces of live theatre through dynamic instrumental movements, catchy rock songs, and monologues, all performed by a live band. the band is rooted in, but not limited to, a five-piece ensemble featuring guitar, bass, drums, cello, and violin. ITHACA is our inaugural project. Influences include the Decemberists, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, The Who, Hendrix, Passing Strange, Hedwig, and Phish.
LPfunK formed the Cheerful Colony after years of working as an actor/composer/guitarist in the New York theatre scene, in an attempt to push the envelope and further the way rock music is used to tell stories in a theatrical setting.
