About this Event

Don Telling’s Island Mysteries is the exotica/instrumental/soundtrack music experiment dauntlessly masterminded by reclusive ex-organic sea cucumber farmer, Don Telling. Currently based in Charlotte, NC, each member of the quintet was personally selected by Mr. Telling after passing a series of blindfolded, rapid-fire music quizzes comprised of questions such as “Who made the bird noises in Martin Denny’s band?” (Augie Colón) and “How many James Bond scores were composed by John Barry?” (just the good ones).

Last Summer, their self-titled, debut LP was released directly into thrift store record bins from Maine to Malibu. Thrift Store Album Connoisseur Magazine praised it as “the album you’ve always hoped to find amid all that other crap”. The LP features authentically exotic reexaminations of the classic songs “Quiet Village”, “Miserlou”, “Love is Blue”, and more. Their live show might feature the theme from an old British sci-fi marionette television show, a rollicking Broadway favorite, a Motown classic, or a traditional Amish mourning yodel - but never those 4 in that exact order.

This will be Don Telling’s Island Mysteries first appearance in Raleigh, NC. Cell phone photography/videography is welcome. Hawaiian shirts and pocket-sized bird calls suggested. No overly aromatic perfumes or body sprays please!
