Flashback to the ’60s: Mellow Yellow and Heavy Light play THT
Vermont-based sixties tribute band Mellow Yellow is marking their 10th anniversary with a new stage show called “Sixties Flashback” at the Town Hall Theater on Friday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m. The show will feature songs from the heyday of the late 1960s rock and pop music. This will be the first of several shows in collaboration with Heavy Light, a team that creates live projection psychedelic light shows.
The band has produced theatrical shows over the past several years, relying on digital technology to get that “sixties sound.”
“We feel that this is a natural extension of the work we have done before, but with the additional coolness of a hand crafted, live projection analog light show provided by Heavy Light, using technology that has not changed since 1967,” said Mellow Yellow founding member Brad Daddyo (David Cooper).
Who’s behind the projector? Two friends: Graeme Walford and Doug Kopacz, both of Vermont.
“I’ve always had an interest in music, and the psychedelic sounds and ideas have always held a place in my heart,” said Walford. “I decided to see just how those amazing light shows were done in the old Fillmore East,”
It didn’t take the duo long to figure it all out and resurrect an almost lost art form.
Tickets to Friday’s show are $15 and may be purchased at townhalltheater.org, by calling (802) 382-9222, at the THT box office (Monday-Saturday 12-5 p.m.), or at the door an hour before show time.
