Celebrating Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees The Cars and Members The Pretenders!
Why you should see this show…

Moving in Stereo incorporates all of the sleek, innovative, new wave sound that put The Cars on the map, and you do not want to miss it as they bring this show to the Music Box.

The Pretender’s debut album remains to this day, one of the most audacious and fascinating debuts in rock music history. That album established Chrissie Hynde as a staggeringly artful tunesmith with a remarkable gift for pulling indelible choruses seemingly out of thin air. Pretenders fans will be amazed how Hyndesight can match the sound, look and vibe of the Pretenders at the top of their game, 1980 – 1995, and beyond.

 

Moving In Stereo Bio
The Cars were the most successful American new wave band to emerge in the late ’70s. With their sleek, mechanical pop/rock, the band racked up a string of platinum albums and Top 40 singles that made it one of the most popular American rock & roll bands of the late ’70s and early ’80s. MOVING IN STEREO: a tribute to THE CARS recreates the sights and sounds of The Cars at the height of their powers! With a song list that spans the bands entire recording career, you’re guaranteed to hear all of your favorite CARS hits! It’ll move you…IN STEREO!

Hyndesight Bio
Hyndesight was formed in late 2015. Nashville drummer, Paul Presson had played classic rock and traditional rhythm & blues around Nashville for the past 10 years, but wanted to form his own group that he could put his passion into. He tapped Bryan Walsh for bass, and Steve Cirkvencic on lead guitar, both exceptionally seasoned live performers. The key to it all was found when Bryan asked Ainsley, a child-prodigy/singer-songwriter if she would be interested in Paul’s tribute act. Not only had Ainsley been compared to Ms. Hynde countless times, but the Pretenders were idols and a huge influence on her. Just the simpatico Paul had hoped for.
Pretenders I remains to this day one of the most audacious and fascinating debuts in rock music history. That album established Chrissie Hynde as a staggeringly artful tunesmith with a remarkable gift for pulling indelible choruses seemingly out of thin air. Pretenders fans will be amazed how Hyndesight can match the sound, look and vibe of the Pretenders at the top of their game, 1980 – 1995, and beyond.

The players
Born in San Francisco, CA, lead-singer, Ainsley is very culturally diverse, even more so by spending formative years in the US, New Zealand, Chile and Australia. At the early age of sixteen she graduated high school, then studied voice, dance & acting at WB Academy of Performing Arts. Ainsley has toured many countries performing original material, and was featured in ‘ R2 (Rock N Reel)’ magazine. Ainsley has also frequently toured South America where she has a great following. Her music is constantly played on commercial and independent radio throughout Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Performing with Hyndesight is a chance to honor one of her biggest influences, Chrissie Hynde, playing the rock & roll tough-chick.

Lead guitarist, Steve Cirkvencic, has worked as a sideman for people like VanZant (Johnny and Donny from Skynyrd and 38 Special). Steve is a big fan, and admires Pretender’s original guitarist, James Honeyman-Scott. Steve really brings an
adventurous spirit to recreating his solos.

Bryan Walsh plays bass and sings background vocals. Bryan attended Seminole State College, where he played bass & keyboards. Bryan & drummer, Paul met in 2013 in a classic –rock trio. Bryan also plays in Ainsley’s original music group. Like Pretender’s original bassist, Pete Farndon, Bryan is a life-long motorcycle
devotee.

The band’s founder and business manager, Paul Presson provides drums & background vocals. He is a huge fan of the great bands of the 80’s; Pretenders, The Clash, The Jam & Psychedelic Furs. Paul is a graduate of Berklee College and was part of the 90’s LA pop scene, performing and recording with local heroes, Wonderboy (Robbie Rist) and Cockeyed Ghost (Adam Marsland).
