The Old Ceremony
The most ‘pop-noir’ band from Chapel Hill, NC – ever. Figureheaded by songwriter/raconteur Django Haskins. The Old Ceremony makes music so potent that you may go blind listening to it.
After four highly acclaimed albums and eight years of touring the US, Canada, and, most recently, Europe, the Chapel Hill, NC band has built a large and loyal following. TOC has performed with CAKE, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Chuck Berry, Polyphonic Spree, Mountain Goats, and Avett Brothers, and was included in PASTE Magazine’s “Top 100 Albums of 2006.”
TOC is figureheaded by songwriter Django Haskins, and includes bassist Jeff Crawford, drummer Dan Hall, vibes/organist Mark Simonsen, and violinist/keyboardist Gabriele Pelli.
“This looks happy, but the music hits much deeper. Stephanie Morgan’s vocals [move] delicately between The Sugarcubes and The Sundays, but always with a childlike wink and skip…. Sometimes the band evinces a sadness that lives in the world, but there is always an answer of music and joy to bring light out of every possible shadow.”
