A quick CaMp CoMbO story. Oddball cover songs, fun original tunes and exuberant playing form a wacky hybrid of pop/swing/jazz and polka. Vintage music for the future! CaMp CoMbO joins a list of bands who inject some entertaining, arty fun into popular music. This includes 1940-50’s nutbar Spike Jones, Mexican Esquivel’s crazy 1950’s arrangements, Toronto’s zany Shuffle Demons and USA’s quirky Squirrel Nut Zippers. Toronto live-music visionary and blogger Lonely Vagabond called us “Hipster vaudeville!”
A classically trained musician with a penchant for the punk music. Sev has played in numerous bands, on keyboards, drums and voice. Tulpa, with John Bottomley, holds a special place and so do the rock punkers, Throbbin’ Hoods. Sneaking up on 40 years of experience in a variety of mediums, Sev Micron engineers Muzicare Productions and has produced a good number of indie artists. Songwriting is another of Sev’s many and considerable talents.
And it wouldn’t be right to not mention that Sev loves animals, dogs especially (hi Bela), and that cooking is a forte! Peace and love are big fans, too.
“Recognise excellence. Celebrate weirdness and innovation. Oddballs should be cherished, if they can do something other people can’t do.”
