The Trouble Notes story begins when Bennet moved from Indiana to New York City and finally began taking ownership of his prodigious musical gifts. At the age of four, he began playing violin, and by 15 he was classically trained performing with orchestras and wowing audiences in competitions. The problem was that classical music bored him. Instead of drilling musical exercises, he began to devote his practice time to playing along to the television and the radio. Applying schooled technique with imagination in a contemporary music or cultural setting would wonderfully prefigure the spirit imbuing The Trouble Notes. In New York, he found himself longing for a creative outlet to medicate his soul while it felt numbed by Wall Street. He found himself often alone on the band of the East River, filling his spirit, improvising from his heart. He also found solace in the demand for violin in the bustling and diverse music scene. Stripping away the flash and distraction of a career in finance, Bennet began to heed an inner call to pursue a form of international diplomacy. He began to realize that call was coming from his violin—his music was meant to spread healing and joy worldwide.
This is a live clip of the song “Christoph” by The Trouble Notes performed during the final day of STRAMU Wuerzburg 2017. A special thank you to all of the beautiful people in the audience the entire weekend who helped give us enough energy to perform 14 sets in three days. As you can see, we put out quite a bit of energy with each song!
The Trouble Notes music does not need words to convey stories or foster connections. The group’s name is irreverently playful, just like their music can be. It conjures the concept of learned musicianship – when thought as a twist on “treble notes” – and it conjures their virtuosity, as in they are playing the “trouble notes.” But most appropriately the handle evokes daring creativity, music that stirs up something within the listener.
Having played over 400 shows in 15 different countries The Trouble Notes have managed to build a loyal fanbase with their unique and energetic performances all around the world. Fascinated by the manifold encounters, the band serenades from one magical place to the next. In their packed van, they drive through Europe. A never-ending adventure living their theme…
