Asher Shout Outs!

Asher Electro Hawaiian® lap steel player Chris Combs and his band Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey (JFJO) will be performing their unique reinterpretations of Beethoven's 3rd and 6th Symphonies in a project titled "Ludwig.”

The 4 members of JFJO will be performing along side a 44-piece orchestra and will be filmed entirely in HD for a documentary feature to be released later this year.

“This will definitely be the first time a lap steel has been featured as a centerpiece of an orchestra and I'm very proud to be center-stage with my Electro Hawaiian®,” says Combs.

Orchestrated by Noan Faingold and arranged by Noam Faingold, and JFJO, these epic works have been reconstituted in a modern light. JFJO brings Beethoven to life in a new and exciting manner. Channeling the spirits of not only Beethoven & Karajan but Led Zeppelin & Radiohead as well, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey are turning Beethoven's 3rd & 6th symphonies into modern music for today's audiences.

Adam Ollendorff and his Electro Hawaiian® Model I lap steel will be joining Will Hoges band in a taping of a show that will air nationally on PBS. The acclaimed radio-concert series “Bluegrass Underground” is partnering with PBS to bring the unique “musical adventure” series to national audiences. Many of the episodes will be videotaped 333-feet below the ground in the acoustically pure Volcano Room, deep inside the Cumberland Caverns in Tennessee.
