A reinterpretive, neo-classical approach to the music of The Beatles.
Cellophane Flowers take popular classical music excerpts and intertwine them with Beatlesongs to create a unique, musical experience. With universal themes of love, and a set list that includes songs like LET IT BE, IMAGINE, HERE COMES THE SUN, WONDERFUL CHRISTMASTIME, HAPPY XMAS, & ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE, the show is ideal for the holiday season or any time of year!
The core of the group is the Cellophane Flower Power Trio -- cello, violin, + Jeff Lake on guitar & vocals.
Add on musicians include the following:
CHRIS CLARK - piano & synth
(BRAND X, WICKED, MAMA MIA)
SCOUT FORD - vocals & narrations.
(TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA)
NICHELLE LEWIS - vocals
(Recently graduated from Molloy Music College)
The group can also expand to a full string quartet for larger events.
The casual & conversational vibe of a Cellophane Flowers show can be attributed to Jeff’s lifelong journey as a singer/songwriter & band-leader.
He was the Musical Director for American Idol spinoff show "The Nueva Estrella Awards" (CBS), a show for which he also wrote the theme song "Shine". Jeff also wrote & co-produced music for multi-platinum recording artist Michalis Hatzigiannis - UNIVERSAL GREECE.
As the lead singer of hard rock band, BIG BANG, he toured with multi-platinum artists EXTREME, WINGER, WHITE LION & ZEBRA.
