Concord Ballet Orchestra Players
Concord Ballet Orchestra Players originally convened to perform a one-time live tribute to the 1970s "krautrock" group Faust -- but then enjoyed playing together so much that they decided to carry on together with original trout-stream-of-consciousness performances.Read More
Hailing from Somerville, Massachusetts, the group has evolved into a large (7-9 piece) improvising experimental rock band. The members met while playing in other bands who shared the same rehearsal space -- a space that was once occupied by a "Concord School of Ballet". A cracked, hand-painted sign for the school still hangs on the wall there.
They are sometimes informally referred to as "CBOP" (pronounced SEE-bop).
