Deep Set Quartet, Holiday Parking 

When: Sun., Aug. 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $7

Dex Romweber's legacy so far is unshakably rooted in neo-rockabilly, despite his best efforts to move beyond the limitations of that tag. He's named influential composers in interviews, interpreted Chopin's "Golden Strings" with the Flat Duo Jets (which, to be fair, Link Wray also played), and even released a 2006 album of classical piano solos.

With the new ensemble, Deep Set Quartet, Romweber has what might be his boldest new direction. The quartet comprises singer/guitarist Dexter Romweber, drummer Sara Romweber, violinist Jennifer Curtis and singer Carrie Bobis playing what Curtis describes as "a soundscape outlined by drum set, chordal guitar playing, woven with harmonic intricacies on the violin, fueled by Dexter's lyrics and supported by Carrie's vocal harmonies."

The group's formation was an outgrowth of long-standing collaborations. As children, Sara Romweber taught Curtis to play drums and ride a skateboard; in their teens, they played together in various Afro-Latin ensembles. Bobis had sung in Dexter Romweber & The New Romans, while Curtis and Dex had collaborated casually on an intersection of his rock 'n' roll and Curtis' classical, including a revisit to "Golden Strings." In Deep Set, all four contribute to new arrangements of standards and prime cuts from Romweber's catalog, plus new numbers, too. —Bryan C. Reed
