This is a simple one. Musicians that play the kind of music we play usually are playing music for a living. They work 3 to 5 nights a week and go where the money is. We are limited in our gigs because we all have day jobs and family's. The next issue is cost, if we added a band our cost would be at a price that we could only do large venues. Using electronic tracks (not mp3's or studio tracks) we can control each instrument. Most all groups use some kind of sequence or have more than 8 people in the band and that brings us back to cost. Our music is played on Roland MIDI sequencers and we have 2 on at all times. The more people you have in a band the more opinions you have to deal with which at times creates more trouble than it's worth. The last reason is that for all the years we have each been playing, we have connected with so many people that they enjoy the songs we do. We are always learning new songs from yesterday to today and getting new fans every night. We also do sound from the stage and have 10 mixes going plus 2 main mixes. We are happy making a fair amount of money and still able to play local venues.
Thank you to everyone who supports The Symphonics. We plan to give you our best each and every night and remember we are a vocal group with tracks.
Until next time,
Welcome to The Symphonics Website
All our tracks are Live Recordings, this is what we sound like, LIVE.
The Symphonics have lost a dear friend and mentor. Bobby Wells left an indelible mark on our hearts with his passing. He was such a large part of our musical history. From Sidewalk Symphony to the Duprees and finally the Infernos we were blessed to have worked with him. The most treasured part of our relationship with him was his long lasting friendship. We learned a great deal from Bobby but the most valuable lesson he taught us was his loyalty to his friends. We can't imagine not seeing him on stage but what hurts us so deeply is the fact that we won't be able to see him and laugh about the old times. If there's a Rock and Roll Heaven ,Bobby will be leading the band. R.I.P. our brother and know that we will always raise our microphones to you!
