What do you get when you throw together classical string players, a vocalist/spoken word/human beat box artist, a jazz trombonist, and hip sensibility? Well, the obvious answer is you get the Cosa Nostra Strings. This outfit, playing two shows Spoonbar, is the latest brainchild of Adam Theis – the aforementioned jazz trombonist – who is the instigator of the Jazz Mafia. The Cosa Nostra Strings consist of three conservatory trained string players; Shaina Evoniuk on violin, Keith Lawrence on viola, Lewis Patzner on cello; an eclectic percussionist, Aaron Kierbel; and Emcee Infinite (a.k.a. Carlos Aguirre), a singer and spoken word artist and human beat box who can vocalize the sounds of an entire band.
