Return of Captain Bringdown
Orchestra 8 is a duo of two talented musicians, Brad Newell and Paul Hunneman. Brad's bands have opened for such quality acts as Susan Vega, Duran Duran, The Psychedelic Furs and Ben Folds. The singer/songwriter has merged his talents with Paul to create a unique modern folk sound. This is an innovative approach to songwriting, featuring perceptive and dreamy lyrics, with violin, mandolin and keyboards to get a huge sound. Locally, Brad is a much sought after musician, more than capable of playing tasteful guitar, mandolin, violin and bass parts that add to the recordings he plays on.
