Secondhand Serenade Brings a Little Acoustic Love to the Culture Room

Secondhand Serenade brings to mind wearing a recycled engagement ring or dating someone who has past lovers' names tattooed on them. It can be an awkward and potentially dangerous thing. In the case of this California group's soft, acoustic repackaging of alternative emo rock, it comes completely naturally.

Singer/guitarist John Vesely's pedigree in music allows him to add credence and depth to the emotion-ridden songscapes about the ups and downs of his romantic life. The son of a jazz musician who stinted in numerous bands and genres before finding his, ahem, "calling," Vesely does it well and with gusto. A romantic, I guess, in the classical sense.
