The Pistol River Concert Association presents Marty O’Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Pistol River Friendship Hall ata 24252 Carpenterville Road.
Like many bands that come to Pistol River, Marty O’Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra is tough to pin to a particular genre, according to Mark Lanier of the concert association. With musical influences that included John Lee Hooker, Tom Waits and Radiohead, the band melds snippets of gypsy jazz, blues, classical violin, and a hint of psychedelic rock.
Front-man Marty O’Reilly plays an electric resonator guitar and is the band’s vocalist.
Chris Lynch is the groups violinist. He calls his playing experimental, stating “I really don’t stick to fiddle traditions, but instead like to find my own textures and voice.”
Bassist Ben Berry and percussionist Matt Goff round out the foursome.
Tickets are $20 and available at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies in Brookings and at Gold Beach Books in Gold Beach. Tickets may also be reserved by calling 541-247-2848 or online at www.pistolriver.com.
