Worcester’s Auntie Trainwreck: Enjoyable For Any Fan of Music
Monday, July 29, 2013
The member's of Worcester's Auntie Trainwreck make it clear you won't hear anyone like them anywhere else. They aim to and succeed at pleasing music fans of all ages with an admirably fun and eclectic mix of tunes. Wherever you find them performing, you'll be sure to have a good time , all your troubles slipping away for a few hours, if you choose to stop in for a bit. It's not much of an exaggeration to say they will truly play a bit of everything.
"We try to play a little something for everyone, whether it's classic rock like the Allman Brothers and Janis Joplin, blues like Bill Withers and BB King, alternative like Bush and Alice in Chains, a revamped disco tune like I Will Survive, or just a great party song like Blister in The Sun," says Danielle DeLucia, lead vocalist for the band.
"What I think we get out of playing is fun and the enjoyment of simply making music. We're not looking to reinvent the wheel. We just want to play songs that get people to have fun- as a band it's a great feeling knowing that people are enjoying what you are doing, and we feed off that energy on stage."
Members of the band are Chris Tello on rhythm guitar and vocals, Al B. on Bass, Carl "Six Fingers" Johnson on lead guitar, Jennifer Derry Trites on Drums and the aforementioned Danielle DeLucia on lead vocals. The band began around nine years ago, gradually evolving into its current form.
"For me music has always been a major influence in my life. I remember very clearly getting my first album and 45, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, my first concert, Cyndi Lauper when I was 10, and listening to Casey Kasem every week to see what the number one song would be," says Danielle.
"Even before I started singing I knew the lyrics to just about every song I had ever heard. I just always wanted to be a part of making music-- the way it moves people and gives life to their feelings and memories. It's a beautiful way to express yourself when simple words fail."
An Admirable Goal for their Music
The band centers on one important goal: making sure the music has the same affect on others as its had on them
"We work very hard to make sure that everyone goes home having heard at least a few songs that they really love each night. And mostly we play upbeat stuff. A great slow song is fine once in a while, but we're trying to get people to dance, not cry in their beer," she jokes.
They will be having this affect on a listeners for a long time to come, they promise.
"We play as much as we want to and have fun doing it and there's nothing wrong with that," says Danielle.
You can see them in upcoming performances at KasBar on August 3rd, the Mill Town Tavern in Millbury on August 17th, and the Simple Man Saloon in Clinton on August 24th. In September, they will be at the Cellar Pub in Webster and the Wong Dynasty in Holden.
As far as recorded music goes, they have a five song CD that they give away at shows as well as a Live DVD from a show that they recorded in November 2012 at Tammany Hall that they give away on occasion as well. And to add to the fun of their shows, you can also buy one of their famous crazy t-shirts.
