When I first heard about the Boston Typewriter Orchestra, I couldn't believe it. I dropped everything to see them last week.
I'm so glad I did.
The "orchestra" uses old typewriters to create rhythmic songs using keystrokes and percussion. Add to the mix playful skits and comedy, and you have a unique combination unlike anything you've ever seen.
- Sit Close. To get the best view and sound, try to sit as closely to the performers as possible.
- Like Rhythm? If you enjoy performances like Stomp or the Blue Man Group, you will definitely enjoy the orchestra.
- The orchestra has limited engagements. Please check their Facebook page for performance schedules and announcements.
- If you'd like a peek at their performance, take a look at the video below. Enjoy!
Special thanks to Eric Andersen and Dan McCune for joining me!
