Unique spin on the cello in South Lake

“Cello like you’ve never heard before,” is how a Bay Area act coming to the South Shore this weekend bills itself.

“Led by Rebecca Roudman, one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most exciting crossover cellists, Dirty Cello presents a high energy mix of soulful blues, swingin’ gypsy jazz and wild Euro-gypsy dance music,” according to the act’s website.

“Either as a classy duo, (cello and guitar) or as a hard rockin’ band with a full rhythm section, violin and singer, Dirty Cello presents a clap along, danceable mix of music that puts a unique spin on common genres. Whether wailing out the blues with virtuosic skill, getting toes tapping with some gypsy jazz or flying through wild Euro-gypsy music, the Dirty Cello band presents a show that fans and critics have described as, ‘Amazing!’ and ‘Inspiring.’”

Dirty Cello plays the 986 Park Hotel at the South Shore Saturday. The act is also scheduled to perform at the Cottonwood Restaurant & Bar in Truckee May 23, according to the band’s website.

“As classically trained musicians who also love to rock out, the Dirty Cello band puts on a unique performance that shows a whole new side to the cello,” according to the site. “Think B.B. King meets Yo-Yo Ma.”
