The Choir


Artifact Encore Performance

A Very Rare and Intimate Small Hall Show


Why you should see this show…

The Choir will be performing songs from their 2018 release Artifact: The Unreleased Album

This release documents the sessions the band recorded in February 1969 at The Legendary Cleveland Recording Company. Artifact: The Unreleased Album was engineered by the legendary Ken Hamann, who would buy the studio the following year. Ken also engineered and produced many nationally charting hits including The Outsiders’ “Time Won’t Let Me,” The Human Beinz’ “Nobody But Me,” The Lemon Pipers’ “Green Tambourine,” The James Gang album Thirds and seven albums featuring many hits by multi-platinum selling artist Grand Funk Railroad.

The original masters of these recordings were largely lost for almost 50 years, and then found intact in the care of Ken Hamann’s son Paul, who carefully stored the tapes at his Suma Recording studio. These tapes became the 2018 critically acclaimed Omnivore Recordings release Artifact: The Unreleased Album.

The circa 1969 version of The Choir who recorded this album and who will be performing this show includes:
Jim Bonfanti: drums, vocals
Ken Margolis: piano, vocals
Phil Giallombardo: organ, vocals
Denny Carleton, bass, vocals
Randy Klawon: guitar, vocals
