A Troop of Echoes

Muscular bass. Agile saxophone. Propulsive drums. Lithe guitar. In a music scene where many bands claim almost-divine levels of inspiration and originality (while still all sounding curiously alike), A Troop of Echoes shelves the self- important melodrama and delivers finely-crafted rock songs with addictive melodies, informed by exploratory harmony and the noisy experimentalism of Providence, RI. The brutal meets the beautiful.

Gear

Yamaha drums and saxophones. Fender guitar and bass guitar. Traynor and Ampeg amplifiers. Sabian and Paiste cymbals. Realistic synthesizer.

“…(a) hybrid of post-rock/free jazz/and sundry avant-garde… (A Troop of Echoes) enjoys melting minds with squalls of noise set against lush textures and skronking improv.” -Bob Gulla Providence Phoenix

“As the head of local avant-electro/punk/jazz quartet A Troop of Echoes, Peter Gilli wields his saxophone onstage like a musical bludgeon: fierce, aggressive, precise, and uncompromising. “ -Christopher Curley Interrobang Magazine

“…(a) proggy blend of modern indie rock and jazzy elements like A Love Supreme-style sax and skittering drums… Your mind will simultaneously be blown and sucked through some magic neon paper towel roll/funnel/jazz-tube, thing.” -Eric Smith Providence Daily Dose

“...the band experiments...to create tension between Gilli’s agile saxophone melodies and Moriarty’s disciplined drumming

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
