Jekyll and Hyde Silent film with Musical Performance by The Invincible Czars
Audiences all over the US have eagerly gathered in art house cinemas to experience The Invincible Czars intricately crafted and precisely performed silent film soundtracks. The band aims to give modern day movie-goers a musical context through which they can better appreciate the importance and artistry of silent era films. Their catalog includes horror, fantasy and westerns movies. They are currently touring the US and Canada with Jekyll and Hyde.
The Invincible Czars make quirky, bold music for lovers of everything in the other category. Inspired by comics, sci-fi, fantasy & horror stories, cartoons, comedians, and classical composers, theyre eclectic, dynamic and always have a cinematic flair.
In 1998, guitarist Josh Robins started recording musical themes into his four-track recorder that sounded more like bits of movie scores than indie rock songs. He needed more than the usual guitar, bass, and drums to realize these budding rock symphonies; he taught himself to read music, began writing pieces for instruments he couldnt play, and eventually assembled the first line-up of The Invincible Czars.
Since those early days, the Invincible Czars have evolved from a novel act in Austins Red River scene to a reverse classical-crossover powerhouse playing all over the US, blending influences as disparate as Tchaikovsky and Van Halen.
Whether theyre playing a rock show in a club, a live silent film soundtrack in a theater, or a holiday event in a park, The Invincible Czars are always entertaining and out of the ordinary. Their musicianship is complemented with humor, magic tricks, fun and wacky wardrobe, and occasional minor acrobatics.
