High Fiction’s “The Young Men,” feat. The National’s Matt Berninger
Gary Grundei and Amy Shelley, known collectively as High Fiction, have played with tons of random musicians and non-musicians. They host a "variety-style event" at the Arvada Tavern where, as the house band, they play behind magicians, burlesque dancers, slam poets, audience members singing live karaoke, guest musicians, and "other wackiness." The show works because the two professional musicians have experience playing a variety and roles, from accompanist to teacher.
