It’s the return of Return of Simple! The piano, pop rock band is making their comeback performance at the Grog Shop on Friday, March 30. Comprised of Rob Kovacs, Alfredo Guerrieri and Stephen Klunk, this will be the trio’s first show in seven years since their April 2011 show in Brooklyn, New York. Kovacs is the only original founding member still in the group and has welcomed Guerrieri and Klunk to add their unique musical styles to the band. Since the band’s establishment in 2003, Return of Simple creates music that any listener can appreciate. This guitar-less trio of classically-trained musicians bring backs a quality of composition that should be expected from a group named after a Langston Hughes novel. Their first nine-track EP Saffron was released in 2006 and saw a lot of plays from Cleveland’s radio stations and Volkswagen’s auto shows across the United States. In 2010, the trio also released 2010 Vision Mix, a collection of unreleased recordings and highlights from Saffron. With the new lineup, the band has been heavily rehearsing and plans to release a long-awaited second record later this year. “Rehearsals are going well! It’s been a while since I’ve played some of this material with a band and it’s sounding great. We’re gonna melt some faces,” Rob Kovacs, the band’s founder said. The debut show will highlight some of Ohio’s classic indie groups including Extra Medium Pony, Kitschy and singer-songwriter Hannah Stak. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and Hannah Stak will kick off the night at 8:30 p.m. Advanced tickets can be purchased for $10 at https://www.grogshop.gs or $12 at the door.
