Juan Prophet Organization
Ripped from the rich soil of Louisiana, these minstrels have found shelter in Murfreesboro,TN where they have established themselves as the most sought after vaudeville rock band in the region. The instrumentation consists of but is not limited to guitar, bass, drums, violin, viola, piano, vocals, accordian, banjo, trumpet, cornet, clarinet, glockenspiel, percussion and other noises. They will be touring throughout 2006 and spring of 2007. They are frothing at the mouths to get back on that long, lonely road, where you can end up with nothing and understand what it means to smile
"Juan Prophet Organization is often described as a Vaudevillian art-rock band, due to the diversity of musical influences they incorporate into their own music---influences ranging from Phillip Glass and the Rachels to Mother Goose and Danny Elfman. JPO's penchant for perfoming in costume also might have something to do with it." Natalie Kilgore, The Rage.
"Murfreesboro's bizarro-pop stalwarts Juan Prophet Organization play-act morbid lullabies with stunning Tom Waits abstraction, combing the hyperbolic minefields of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy with an avant-garde relish. It's a kaleidoscopic grab bag of Dixieland jazz, chamber pop, vaudeville and an anything goes dictum pureed to perfection."
Joey Hood, Nashville Scene.
