November Sound was established in 2014 and has been performing throughout CT, MA and RI ever since. From Columbia, CT, USA, their original music has been featured on several worldwide podcasts, received honors in world songwriting contests, gone viral on YouTube, and their most recent release was the featured music on a syndicated radio show playing all over the UK. Local audiences describe November Sound as “a whole different level of live music” and you can see and hear them anywhere the finest music is served.
We first heard November Sound playing outdoors at Heartstone winery in Columbia and were impressed with their music selection and vocals. We hired them for an outdoor party, and they were perfect for the occasion. They were able to set up outdoors on our patio and still leave plenty of space for guests. Their play list included several pieces that they composed. Their music created great ambience for the gathering, without being too loud for conversation. Plus, they were fun to watch. The keyboard was set up so the melody was played with right hand, and the bass line (actually sounded like an acoustic base) with the left hand.
On Thursday, September 20, 2018 Hockanum Valley Community Council held their event, "The Best of Both, a Food and Drink Experience". It was a magical evening under the stars at CNC Software in Tolland, CT and a highlight was the beautiful music supplied to us by Melissa Rood's November Love group. Their music is amazing! Each song was better than the one before it. We look forward to having them perform next year on Friday, September 13, 2019. Come and see a great performance!
