Meet bassist Caleb Evans, a busy musician who started off quickly in his music career and never looked back,
"I’ve been playing bass guitar for over 9 years, starting off rocking with some friends when we decided to start a band. Originally the drummer, I decided to switch over to bass, but our band only performed one gig and only lasted a few short months."
"After a few years playing electric, I challenged myself and decided to learn Double Bass over one summer and try out for Orchestra in the fall. Hard work and persistence pays off: just over a year later, I won the first of two consecutive regional orchestra chairs- while gigging with various rock bands. One week I would be playing Red Hot Chili Peppers & Led Zeppelin, the next Gershwin's American in Paris. It's crazy but I love it! "
Now days, Caleb splits his time between the alternative rock band Mojo Haiku and playing in his school's Orchestra which is one of the top three schools in the US to have been chosen to receive a GRAMMY (Signature Schools Gold) AWARD in 2013 for music education.
"Mojo Haiku has a very fun and energetic vibe and the band has improved immensely since our beginning in the summer of 2013. After nearly a year, we now gig regularly ( Hard Rock Cafe, House of Blues, Lakewood Theater, etc.) and are working on several originals. The Mojo Haiku style is still developing - we've received a lot of support from fans and other musicians. Our fan base is growing steadily and the level of fan energy has increased during our shows."
"And I love playing in the Orchestra. Classical music teaches a musician the discipline and the foundation on which all music is made. I would love for the band to explore the classically-driven rock genre. The Double Bass is a very expressive instrument and there's territory that has yet to be explored when brought into an alternative rock context. I'm looking forward to folding this onto our acoustic set."
