LeFevre Quartet (not) on the NQC mainstage: whine and cheese
Via Daniel Mount, David Staton of the LeFevre Quartet tries to take a page from the Sherri Easter playbook and drum up some populist outrage over an NQC mainstage decision, in this case the board’s choice not to put TLQ on the mainstage in 2007. I don’t really have an opinion one way or another (they were underwhelming enough at their NQC 2006 showcase to justify the board’s decision in my opinion, no matter what the fan awards say), but has anyone else noticed that Mike LeFevre’s role in this quartet seems bascially to be the titular namesake and baritone of the group while Staton does all the public talking? This is a curious arrangement, especially given that Staton seems to be a bit, erhm, rhetorically intemperate at times (I mean, antagonizing an autocratic and authoritarian outfit like the NQC board doesn’t seem like the best way to get what Staton wants in this case; see here for Staton’s earlier 15 seconds of infamy) Anyway, my money’s still on Sherri Easter. Kill ‘em with ruthless kindness.
Update: Looks like they’ve finally gotten their way. At least they appear on the Thursday night NQC line up now.Email this Post
