Before The Beatles became a band they were individual musicians all with people they looked up to and all with musicians they wanted to take certain traits form. Having four members of the band created a wide variety of influences on the band as a whole by combining the individual members pervious musical repertoire. Starting with George Harrison, his guitar work was influenced by American rockabilly music by Eddie Cochran and Carl Perkins that influenced the band’s songs throughout the years. He also incorporated the melodic lines and slight fills that both Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton created. John Lennon was a huge fan of Elvis, his opinion implied that the there was no true music before Elvis’s time.
When I first saw the nord as an instrument on the program, I was confused about what this was and was surprised to see it was just a type of keyboard. One of my favorite things about this band was that it included both a tenor and an alto saxophone. Although I never played the tenor, it was neat to hear these instruments played together and to identify which sound was coming from which saxophone. Again, with this performance I enjoyed the different solos from each of the five individuals. Halfway through this performance, I started to notice the repetition of both jazz bands, and how all of the songs sounded very similar to me.

Me and one of my really good mates fell out, and it was because of something really stupid I did.” The beautifully produced song achieved 6x platinum by 2013 and is nothing short of impressive. From the start it is obvious that the man has incredible vocal talent. With the writing capabilities Matt Corby has, the listener is never driven to boredom and is kept wondering what will come next. It is beyond question that Matt Corby’s “”Brother” is full of raw talent and emotion. Matt Corby 's “Brother” is a musical journey.
The band played an assortment of blues and jazz songs, from classic to modern. While not all songs were identified, a handful were recognizable. The band covered “You Are So Beautiful,” original recorded in 1974 and written by Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher, and Dennis Wilson, as well as a cover of “Ain’t Nobody,” a 1983 song recorded by the band “Rufus” and Chaka Khan. Overall, this performance was extremely enjoyable. Each member was able to masterfully play their instrument and as a band they worked well together.

Cash was born in Kingsland, Arkansas, USA, and after finishing his term with the air force, Cash moved to Memphis, Tennessee (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame).
