Jeff Greeneberg and Edwin Pierce are songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, and next door neighbors, also known as 100 Year Picnic.
The guys are based out of Bloomington, Illinois, a place of wide-open spaces, short commutes to work, close families, and four colorful seasons. With five kids between the two families, a couple of home studios, and year-round BBQs, it''s a home-grown musical family affair with a love for all things music: Songwriting, listening, experimenting, creating, performing, producing, recording, mixing, and on and on.
Jeff & Edwin play many of the instruments, but also invite a bunch of their talented friends to bring their unique sounds and ideas to the project. You will hear rich string and horn arrangements, vintage synths, upright bass, elaborate electric guitars, simple acoustic guitars, upright piano, Hammond organ, accordion, layered pop vocals, quiet and intimate vocals, soul singers, and of course live drums and rhythm guitar.
The resulting music is a surprisingly catchy and eclectic mix of indie pop songs about everyday life.
This latest 100 Year Picnic record, Tales Of A Modern Splash (2008), is the group''s best and most personal piece of work, with eleven vignettes on modern life, relationships, and basically working it out. Musically, you will hear a couple of artists having a great deal of fun, but also maturing in their craft and perspective.
