'Pearl Street' has existed for one essential reason: Its members have always been dedicated to using their God-given musical talents & abilities to bring joy to the One who is the Ultimate Creative Artist. "Sola Deo Gloria".
Although minimalistic by design, Pearl Street delivers a huge sound. Rick's guitar rhythms and soulful leads blend seamlessly with Debbie's keyboard accompaniments and counterpoints. When Debbie switches to flute, her haunting leads add another dimension to compositions already rich with texture and depth. Adding Steve's polyrhythmic percussion techniques into the mix is the musical equivalent to putting a whipped cream icing on a multi-layered, multi-tiered cake. Jon adds his full and rich tenor sax tones to fill out the sound. All of these sounds are blended to perfection by sound engineer Lisa Burch giving listeners exactly what they want to hear: great original music at a comfortable volume level
In conclusion, Pearl Street is a definite "must-see" group. If you are in the mood for a mix of soulful sounds and lively, toe-tapping music, it will be worth your time and effort to see this group in action. You will not be disappointed.
