Marina Orchestra
What Marina Orchestra has aimed to accomplish isn't any secret. In fact, they've been boasting about it since their beginnings in 2010. It's the simple idea of bringing people together through music and dance. And without any underlying notion of irony or cynicism, you can feel good about what you're letting loose to, so stop trying to fight it!
Marina Orchestra is Inspired by music from all over the world, and there is an inherent jubilance that the sun-soaked eleven piece group radiates. It's exotic, yet familiar. It's a love of global music filtered through the ears of "indie rock" kids. It's ripe with homages and a well rounded respect for the whole history of music. But mostly it's a party.
Conception of the project came when Justin Powers of Knoxville, Tennessee was completely done with listening to navel gazers and decided to shake things up. There was an entire world of blaring brass instruments, dancing back up singers and wild handed percussionists that he longed to see on stage every night. Soon enough the ever expanding Marina Orchestra was quickly finding a way into everyone's schedule. "The only reason I do this, is to look up and see the whole room dancing," says Powers, "That's all that I need."
