Paul and Storm at Jammin’ Java

Saturday November 26 $10 7PM musical comedy

A Lennon/McCartney comedy songwriting team, Paul Sabourin and Greg “Storm” DiCostanzo have been writing and performing original music together for more than a decade. Millions are familiar with Paul and Storm and their material from the years they spent as one-half of the widely acclaimed a cappella band Da Vinci’s Notebook.

Bravely picking up instruments in 2004, Paul and Storm continue to write the kind of material that helped make their former band a hit at clubs and major festivals across the country. No subject is sacred to this energetic pair as they keep audiences laughing with their humorous and satirical original songs. Be it Corporate America (“Rejected Commercial Jingles”), opening bands (“Opening Band”), or over-earnest folk singers (“The Ballad of Eddie Praeger”), Paul and Storm leave no cultural stone unturned.

Paul and StormÔø?s songs are as catchy and musically interesting as they are funny. On their latest CD, “Opening Band”, they move smoothly from one musical genre to another, generating laughs along the way. Be it Elvis Presley (“Shake Machine”), Jimmy Buffett (“Buffett Night”) or Schoolhouse Rock (“Epithets”), their original compositions sound as if the artists being parodied could have written them. In live performance, their harmonies draw comparisons to the Everly Brothers, and their stage presence evokes the Barenaked Ladies.

Paul and Storm’s music is frequently heard on the popular, nationally-syndicated “Bob and Tom” morning radio show, where they also make regular live appearances. They are also a fixture in the “Funny 5” of XM Satellite Radio’s “Dr. Demento” show, and their original songs have been featured on “The Drew Carey Show”, Comedy Central, and on the popular web cartoon site Homestarrunner.com.

Paul SabourinÔø?s keyboard sponsorship is open to the highest bidder.

Greg Ôø?StormÔø? DiCostanzo only uses guitar strings that are on sale.
