An odd collection of people and instruments scatter the stage. They don’t look like they would be friends, let alone band mates. But when Adventure the Great begins to play, it all makes sense.
“It’s an inside joke that we don’t look like we belong in the same band because we’re all totally and completely different,” said Capi Jenkins, 22, violinist and vocalist. “But somehow as a band we have really good chemistry.”
That chemistry produces a sound that is unique to Auburn. Jenkins described it as “baroque pop.”
“A lot of the strings are classically trained, so many of the melodies are classical,” Jenkins said. “But the guitar parts are inspired by grunge and folk.”
