“As usual, Prabir's show was great musical fun, ending with a robust sing-along version of Bohemian Rhapsody. I couldn't believe how many in the audience knew every single word.”
"It's more fun than anything else," Mehta said. "There are times when I feel like I've never stopped playing in a rock band and there are other times when I'm astounded by what these two are doing."
“Quirky pop songsmith Prabir Mehta of Prabir and the Substitutes fame has joined forces with two classically trained musicians, Matthew (double bass) and Treesa Gold (violin) of the Richmond Symphony, to create a set of quirky pop and symphonic inspired songs.”
“They call themselves the best band you never heard of, but DC ROCKS readers have heard them more than once being smarter than the average bear type rockers. ”
“Prabir and The Goldrush will be playing Six Burner on Nov 27, 2009. The project started when Prabir Mehta (of Prabir and the Substitutes) joined forces with two classicaly trained musicians (Matthew and Treesa Gold) to bring together their mutual love for Beethoven and The Beatles. ”
