This Saturday I went to Cataldo’s show at the Columbia City Theater, in Seattle- superb show [Skip to next paragraph if solely seeking band description…Those looking to kill some time with a good old yogurt metaphor-read on]. So you know how Greek yogurt with live active cultures is kinda a big deal now? The trending, super-fuel, probiotic body energizer? Well, that is how I want to feel about the music I am listening to. I want the songs to make me feel alive and energized-and this is EXACTLY what Cataldo does- and is doing! Cataldo is that small, local, organic farm with pasture raised and grass-fed cows producing ze best greek yogurt ever- that you feel awesome about while consuming- and you are hooked on after. That metaphor hit home with anyone?
Yes? No? Maybe-so?
About the band:
Eric Anderson, the lead singer, is charming, eloquent, has beautiful vocal resonation, and keeps the band together like a conductor-even when there is no rhythmic reason to the piece. Did I mention, the three person horn section?! Eargasm- then add intensifying bass, guitars, keyboard, highly focused drums, harmonizing vocals and voila! The quality of sound being produced is truly magical. Plus, the way their set (of songs) was organized was very mindful and fluid which made their performance even more enjoyable for the audience.
