CEG Presents/ Calliope Musicals Residency
Calliope Musicals with The Georgia Flood and Mobile Steam Unit, Kris Lager Band
Calliope Musicals is a cheerful psychedelic party folk band from Austin TX. Their high-energy live performance focuses on involving the crowd. A psychedelic squad of musicians fill in their folksy roots with a mix of vibraphone, tribal drums, bass, lead guitar and explosive vocals. The band exudes feel-good vibes that aim to swallow listeners and spit them out as happier versions of their former selves.
Calliope Musicals is a group in every sense of the word. Loyal to their members and actively involved in a local artists’ collective they helped start, Circus on the Moon, they are truly entranced by the possibility of genuine freedom that the prospect of making music promises.
They aspire to be the greatest show on earth that comes to town to delight and wow. Lock up your children or join them in running away with the circus. You know you want to…
Formed in 2014, the Unit was assembled by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to investigate possible alternatives to dredging as a method of remediating the tremendous pollution factors ailing Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal. After months of research and experimentation, we invented a technology which could heat the toxic canal water to the point of purification by performing a specific sequence of sonic actions that could vaporize liquid—in short a sort of “steam cleaning.”
Unfortunately, marred by narrow-mindedness and corrupt bureaucratic dealings, the EPA rejected our proposed revolutionary technology. After taking some time to lick our wounds, we hit the road in 2016 to showcase our beloved prototype at a series of small expos, bars, and restaurants throughout the New York tri-state area and New England. In 2017, heartened by this experience, we incorporated.
We are now in the office full time, seeking myriad patents and international recognition.
