Talk Of Teronus airs its newest episode featuring Annalise Stalls


Take two quirky Meldavians a.k.a. Wezo & Drave, posing as would be musicians and otherwise professional humans, put them together in a room with their various guests and other musicians and watch what happens. "The Talk Of Teronus" does just that, providing lively chat with interesting and talented guests like jazz saxophonist and composer Annalise Stalls, featured in the newest episode, who is promoting her new CD "Music For Mounds". The talk may be fun and you may get a dose of culture from the "dramatic readings" portion of the show, but the real deal is when it gets down to the music. Wezo & Drave, along with Chuck Cotton on drums (or Chip Click who sits in for Chuck on this episode), and Roger Kohrs on bass, make up "The Talk Of Teronus Rimshot Band" to back up their guests as they collaborate on a live performance. This time it's..."Sunny Moon For Two" showing off Annalise's skills on the soprano saxophone.

Talk Of Teronus with Wezo & Drave featuring Benjy Johnson now showing


The boys from Meldavia (Wezo & Drave) have talked and jammed with yet another notable Piedmont North Carolina area musician, Benjy Johnson. We were there to capture the chats and the music and are now pleased to share it with you.

Working should be this much fun for everyone! While the day of filming can get long and repetitious in some ways, the camaraderie, banter, informative chat and awesome live jams make it all worthwhile and very rewarding. It is an honor to be among so many truly talented and delightful creative folk.

Check out this month's episode with singer, song writer and Earthtones Recording Studio owner and technician, Benjy Johnson as he talks with the guys and they collaborate on one of Benjy's tunes "Devil In The Vinyl". Check out all the previous episodes here, if you missed any of them. Don't forget to subscribe to The Collabative's YouTube channel and see each new episode as they are released!

Videos from October's Hanz Araki performance in Greensboro, in anticipation of Thursday night


As Thursday's event gets closer, we get more excited that we get to hear The Hanz Araki Band again, right here in Greensboro!

In anticipation of the event, May 14, 7:30 at Mack and Mack, we thought you'd enjoy seeing a couple of pieces from their October show at The Creative Center. It's a total coincidence that both the tracks selected have stories featuring women and ships. Enjoy!

The Hanz Araki Band featuring Colleen Raney & Owen Marshall Return to Greensboro May 14


They were such a hit the last time we hosted them, we decided to have The Hanz Araki Band back once again. For one night only, at Mack and Mack Clothing in downtown Greensboro, you can see this popular Portland, OR-based trio perform their award-winning Celtic music. Learn more about the band here,after reading a few more details about the show and our hosts, below.

The event begins at 7:30pm on May 14, 2015. Advance tickets are available here for $12 and $15 at the door. Doors open at 7pm. The event is BYOB so feel free to bring your favorite beverage to enjoy during the performance.

Our friends will remember that Mack and Mack hosted The Collabative's very first show ever. When they expressed interest in hosting this event, after owners John and Robin Davis were disappointed to have had to miss The Hanz Araki band in October, we were thrilled to plan another event with them.

The intimate venue has become well-known, through hosting the impressive performances produced by Triad Acoustic Stage and we are honored to showcase our next event here, as well.


“Araki’s distinctive voice, while definitely in the folk tradition, carries a lot of emotion; Throughout, the instrumental work is exceptional.”

“…splendid, absolutely fabulous”
