The Half Steps are performing “Pet Sounds” with Collective Unconscious
Collective Unconscious scales to new heights as they perform the Beach Boys’ 1966 classic, Pet Sounds. On stage will be an army of musicians: a 24-member orchestra including a string quartet, vocal quartet, horn section, vibes, timpani, bass harmonica and a Theremin to name a few! With this ensemble, the Collective Unconscious will recapture the beautiful and spiritual music that is Pet Sounds. Joining Collective Unconscious on stage will be jazz pianist George Maurer, vocal quartet The Half Steps and Jeff & Tommy Vee (sons of music legend Bobby Vee).
Pet Sounds was originally released in 1966 and included the hits “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Sloop John B.” and “God Only Knows.” Featuring the more mature and creative compositions of Brian Wilson, the album went on to influence a whole range of other artists and bands, not the least of which was The Beatles who recorded Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in response. It has consistently remained at the top of critic’s lists of the best albums of all time. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it #2 behind Sgt. Pepper’s, MOJO Magazine (UK) ranked it #1.
