Live, the ensemble provides the excitement one would expect from people who have played music all their lives. Bob Nyswonger (Adrian Belew, psychodots) on bass brings a powerful melodic sensibility to the rhythm section. Roger Klug, the legendary guitarist, adds angular polish. Greg Tudor and Mike Landis bring live firepower. The former working behind the mixing desk as well to bring the albums to life. New addition Lauren Bray plays synthesizers for the live shows and lends a new vocal color, bringing some levity to the group.
