Description: Unbande is 2 violas, cello, and guitar playing crossover, pop, jazz, blues, and other eclectic arrangements and originals. UnBande is based in Chicago, Il.

Bio: The UnBande is a fresh collaboration whose unlikely instrumentation and unexpected stylistic forays make it undeniably unique in the alternative string music universe. Created in 2008 by Hollywood studio musician Danny Seidenberg (also known for his 11 years in the Turtle Island String quartet), it featured two violas and the incredible Chapman Stick…un-violins and the un-guitar. The goal was to celebrate the less familiar and special voice of the viola, and it can be heard on the 2009 release ‘Alto Logic’, featuring Danny, Novi Novog on viola and Larry Tuttle wielding the Stick.

Now Chicago-based, UnBande has evolved and expanded into a sophisticated chamber-jazz quartet, featuring two violas, cello, and guitar. Crazy classical crossover, rockin’ pop, swingin’ jazz, original compositions, world music, and wild improvisation. But also a rich and sonorous concoction with a true chamber music voice, undeniably a celebration of the low strings.

Playing alongside Danny Seidenberg is long time pop and folk violist Daryl Silberman, legendary Chicago cellist Matthew Agnew, and young guitar phenom Matt Karnatz.
