Niagara-On-The-Lake Rhythm Project
A collection of instrumental tunes of varied styles. The music is mostly acoustic and is sort of world-beat, Celtic, folky, meditational, Latin kind of thing, with shades of Bruce Cockburn meets Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley goes Klezmir or Eric Clapton meets Charlie Brown. You figure it out. This is a project that began in 2000. We started out planning an 'all acoustic world music type of thing' and it evolved over time into this showcase featuring the composing talents and musicianship of my pals here in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The BONUS TRACK, 'The Shaw Shuffle' was an impromptu jam that emerged at the end of a grueling session and illustrates the fun we can have when we let loose. All songs were recorded and mixed 'on the fly', the old-fashioned way, without the use of computer-aided editing or automation. Since the early 70's Steve Goldberger has been a band leader and a freelance bass player/vocalist. Today, he keeps very busy with his own band, The Fringe Locals, as well as with a diverse list of folk, jazz, blues, country and roots artists, splitting his time between Toronto and Niagara-on-the-Lake After surviving open heart surgery Steve released his first indie CD, 'Come From the Heart' which was recorded live over three nights at the Olde Angel Inn in Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Feathers Pub in Toronto, where they appear on a regular basis. In 2002 Steve is releasing two new albums. The first, 'The Niagara-on-the-Lake Rhythm Project' is a collection of original instrumental tunes. This is a project that began in 2000. What started out as an 'all acoustic world music type of thing' evolved over time into this showcase featuring the composing talents and musicianship of Steve and his pals in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
