With a peak at 29,000 feet above sea level, Mount Everest in Nepal is one of the world’s tallest mountains. The musicians who comprise the Nevada City rock band Mount Whateverest have been to similar heights. Singer and guitarist Chris Streng (ex-Stratford 4) plays the role of Edmund Hilary, the first Westerner to scale such heights while the rhythm section of bassist Steve Melendez and drummer Jonah Wells (ex-Jeepster) combine to embody Tenzing Norgay, the patient Sherpa who led the way while Hilary reaped the glory. Aided by Cynthia Harrell and Sasha Soukup (ex- Sasha and the Shamrocks) on vocals and keetar, they form a musical unit capable of reaching staggering heights. Their music is a noisy collision of sugar-coated pop, space-jazz interludes and giant, classic rock riffs. Chanted school yard choruses combine with thumping glam rhythms to create the kind of day-glow rock and roll not heard since T. Rex roamed the Earth. Armed with distortion boxes, lasers and lots of extra oxygen, Mount Whateverest are so high, they’re breaking through into the bottom of something else entirely.
