Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven recently held a show at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio as part of the new ensemble’s inaugural Rebirth Tour. The band has shared a remastered soundboard audio highlight of a portion of the opening sequence from the concert.
Bassist Reed Mathis, drummer Jay Lane, keyboardist Todd Stoops and guitarist Clay Welch opened the show with their “classical dance music” arrangement of “Finale” from Ludwig von Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3. While the first 10 minutes of the opening tune weren’t captured by the soundboard, the resulting 17 minutes were remastered and shared by Mathis.
Listen to an extended portion of “Finale” here:
Last Friday Electric Beethoven released their debut album Beethoven on Royal Potato Family. A limited edition vinyl pressing of the album is now available via RPF and at the band’s merch table while on tour.
