My Favorite Song Weekend - ELO

The Electric Light Orchestra were formed to accommodate a desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. Originally from Birmingham, United Kingdom they became a hit in the USA in the 1970's. ELO had an idea to give their music a classical sound by combining cellos, violins, horns and woodwinds. They became pinned as "The English guys with the big fiddles". From 1971-1986 they traveled in concert. ELO's last performance of the century occurred on 13 July 1986 in Stuttgart, Germany. After that performance the band officially disbanded. In 2000 the band came back together for a brief time. George Harrison died in 2001 so the band once again disbanded. Although they are no longer together their songs still live on. On September the 2 of 2008 an eco-friendly repackage of The Essential Electric Light Orchestra called "Playlist: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra " was released.
My daughter plays Cello, you thought only classical was her future....think again.
