If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius.
The musicians in this seven-piece band recreate the music and the magic of the Talking Heads’ entire career, and they do it flawlessly. Together they bring the Heads’ blockbuster live show to the stage once again, with frontman Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, along with the same throbbing beat and musicality of the original.
“To all you listeners, this is an appropriate title – Start Making Sense. This band makes plenty of sense to me and is a great representation of Talking Heads’ music. So listen up and go check them out!” said Bernie Worrell, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member and keyboardist for the Talking Heads.
Prepare yourself for a rockin’, funkin’ dance celebration of the New Wave art-punk you loved from the ’80s!
