ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Furies are a modern rock band performing original music that combines alternative/indie influences and a range of other stylistic themes, including folk, funky, world music and classic rock sounds. This diversity gives their music a catching, moving undercurrent laced at times with melodic, ballad-like qualities, at times with international overlays, at times with a funky groove, and at times pushed to a driving, biting edge. Currently, their working repertoire includes more than 70 originals (plus a range of covers when needed).

Each musician in the band adds creative input to the all-original sound. Long-time bass player Maurice Capone laid the groundwork with his moving, melodic bass lines. Current bassist Geordie Keitt brings his own tasteful and funky style to the mix. Duke Hipp on drums and Toni Dahan on congas provide the rhythmic focus with syncopated, unique drumming styles. Mark Edberg, the band's founder, establishes the sound center with guitar chord work and leads (as well as keyboards and, on occasion, sax). Filling out the center are keyboards and backup guitar from new addition Dave Weinraub. Mark’s “grainy” vocals are combined with those of Elizabeth Andrade and Renaisa “Dr. Re”Anthony to create a compelling and varied blend.

The Furies have been performing at clubs and events since the mid 1990s. Current and past clubs include:
• CBGB's, The Lone Star, the Cooler, and Brownie's in New York City;
• Zack’s Greek Taverna, Solly’s U Street Tavern, The Black Cat, the Bayou, Club Asylum, DC Arts Center, Polly’s, 15 Minutes, Julio's Capitol Hill, Club Heaven, Grog & Tankard, Dylan's, Milo's, and other venues in Washington, DC;
• The Luna Park Grill, Rhodeside Grill, Crossroads (Charlottesville), Pete's (Charlottesville), T.T. Reynolds, Fat Tuesday's, Zaxx, Finicky's, Laughing Lizard, Cousin's, Zig’s, and Planet Nova in Northern Virginia;
• Austin Grill, Flanagan’s, Rodeo, Uncle Jed’s Roadhouse, The Edge, the 8 x 10 Club, the Paragon, Max's on Broadway, Manny's, Planet X Cafe, The Rabbit's Foot, Taliano's, Durty Nelly's, Dunmor's Tavern, and Carey's Pub in Maryland.

The Furies also performed at the H Street Festival (Fall 2006), past presidential receptions (a Clinton inaugural reception at the Warner Theater), the Takoma Park (MD) Street Festival, the Goucher College (Baltimore) Oktoberfest, and the "Art Attack" festival at the University of Maryland.

Their newest CD, “Real Time,” was recently released, adding to their first CD, “Scratch.” Previously, Furies singles singles "Nevermore," "Carol," and "The Candle" received airplay on Washington, DC metro area radio stations and on local college radio. In addition, "The Candle" appeared on the soundtrack for "Handgun," a film starring Treat Williams (Prince of the City) and Seymour Cassell, directed by Whitney Ransick. It was released on video nationwide and has been shown on Showtime and Cinemax cable networks.

The Furies are also committed to playing benefit performances, and have participated in benefit shows for: Habitat for Humanity; Easter Seals; Pennies for People (at American University); Whitman-Walker AIDS Clinic; humanitarian aid to El Salvador; the "Save Our Cities" rally (on the mall in Washington, DC); an Earth Day festival (at George Washington University); and past Washington Area Music Association's Annual Crosstown Jams. The band's interests in this respect coalesce well with the social and political concerns reflected in many of their songs. [Furies lead singer/guitarist Mark Edberg formed an organization called Musicians Advocating Shared Solutions (MASS) as a vehicle to conduct benefit shows. The first of these shows was a "Stop the Violence" concert in the mid-1990s featuring four well-known local/regional bands. A second "Stop the Violence" show was held in Baltimore, also featuring area bands.]
