Saturday Night Concert
Rasputina is a cello-driven band based in New York that is renowned for their unconventional and quirky music style as well as their fascination with historical allegories and fashion, especially those pertaining to the Victorian era.
The group is fronted by cellist/vocalist Melora Creager, who also writes all of the lyrics and creates art for the band’s albums, singles, and website. Daniel DeJesus, cellist and vocalist extraordinaire and Dawn Miceli, celebrity podcaster in her own right, percussion/singer complete the ensemble.
Nathaniel Johnstone Band
