Twenty years ago, Ohio University students Chris Forbes, Keith Hanlon and Dave Pascoe began performing as Orchestraville. Fourteen years later, having long since relocated to Columbus, they laid the project to rest before final album "Poison Berries" saw release.

With Old 3C Records finally issuing “Poison Berries,” Orchestraville is reuniting for a pair of shows to celebrate. They’ll play Rumba on Saturday with guitarist Matt Duckworth and keyboardist Parker Paul in tow.

“Poison Berries” shows a band not in decline but certainly in recline. It’s soft and comfortable pop music, smart but never showy. Consider it a Midwestern answer to likeminded Brits from The Kinks to The Clientele.
