The Trouble Notes

Michael Perry

Gypsy fusion trio, The Trouble Notes, have been performing on the streets and stages of Europe and the United States since late 2012. The group consists of violinist, Bennet Cerven; guitarist, B-zy Brain; and percussionist, Oliver Maguire. Having been raised in different countries (France, UK, and USA), each individual brings a unique perspective and flavor to the group’s core. What they share is a common sacrifice – the comfort and stability of career and home – to travel and share their musical talents with every culture of the world while further growing as musicians and beings. Their music is described as a fusion of genre across the entirety of the musical spectrum, creating a sound that is truly unique to its own.


Big Top Chautauqua’s house band consisting of band leader Ed Willett, vocalist Phillip Anich and Jack Gunderson, Jane Aleckson on bass, Tom Mitchell on vocals and drums,  and special guests Stevie Matier on bodhran, percussion and vocals, Tom Draughn on guitar and vocals and Nori Perrine on fiddle.
