Our RMG members perform regularly throughout the Triangle area. Theses acts have the occasional need to fill a vacant spot or compliment their current ensemble with a guest instrument, vocalist, dancer or other performance-based service. The Substitute Musicians Registry is presented in eight categories below for easy reference and retrieval.

How do I get listed in the Registry?

Name/Business Name: F. Cherry / Maraschino Music
Phone: (336) 395-8021
Email:
vcherry@gmail.com
Skill Level: Professional
Styles Played: Standards/Classical/Jazz/Swing/Lounge/Rock/Waltz/R&B/Blues/Latin/Dance
Notes: "Vattel Cherry is one of the few acoustic string bassists with the pure ability to sustain a listening experience over a complete album without ever retracing his steps. He boasts a rich, full sound, and a good, if not spectacular, technique that is well suited to the sort of free-style improvisation that he has embraced."
Steve Loewy (All-Music Guide to Jazz)
"Cherry is a funky player, enjoying the snap and pop of the strings against the fingerboard as much as the more conventional lines and walks of this music. His playing always seems to have a strutting, almost swaggering gait about it, cocky but warm too, perfect for a gospel-y, sometimes raucous but above all blues-based jazz style. He can play the bass with a thumping verve and energy which few players have any more."
Richard Cochrane (Musings)
