'Crossing Borders' live radio broadcast will present The Moles from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 4, at the Carriage House Café at 305 Stewart Avenue. The simultaneous radio broadcast airs on WVBR 93.5 FM and is available online at www.wvbr.com.
The Moles are a six piece group hailing from Ithaca New York featuring brothers Ted and Rick Hansen, Sarah Fiorello, Chad Crumm, Walt Lorenzut, and Ryan Cady.
The Ithaca Times calls their music “a dark mélange that is both creepy and charming at once. A fairy tale sound.” With characters who watch the changing traffic lights in one verse and fly over valleys in the next, their lyrics balance the everyday with the surreal.
Hansen brothers Ted and Rick sought to form a band whose instrumentation would offer an alternative to the standard rock lineup. With Rick Hansen already on accordion they sought out Sarah Fiorello to add the French horn and called on Mr. Chad Crumm to bring his unique style of violin to the melodic section. Longtime friends and colleagues in the local music scene, Walt Lorenzut (bass) and Ryan Cady (drums) from Hubcap, form the rhythm section with lead vocalist Ted Hansen on guitar.
