A 10-member unit sounding as if Frank Zappa took over Oingo-Boingo. The sax player was in a flight suit. The trombonist used a mannequin head as a mute. There were 2 sets of percussion, keyboard, bass guitar, trumpeteer, violins and congas… because… why not! Replace Electric with Everett and you have Everett Light Orchestra (ELO). It’s like a funky big band jazz wearing tie-dye.
