21st Century transcontinental musings by Bob Familiar and James McElroy. For fans of modern rock, traditional noise, and a few things in between. Come and hear us play our organs.
Band/artist history
Bob and James met in the hallway of a New Jersey grade school many moons ago, and later worked together in several bands prior to forming AHPO. So, in a way, this is a reunion of sorts. They got together again for a recording session for one of Bob's solo projects and then THIS happened...
Have you performed in front of an audience?
At the present time, we live over 3000 miles apart (Bob in the Boston area, James in Los Angeles), so no. We do perform separately with other artists from time to time. Also, we are currently seeking musicians in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas to form a live version of All Human Parts Orchestra in the near future. If you are a Los Angeles area musician, feel free contact us.
