Club Foot Orchestra was founded in 1983 by composer/musician Richard Marriott. Named after San Francisco's Club Foot nightclub in the Bayview district where they were the house band, the Orchestra became a pioneer in creating modern music for silent film. Their accompaniment is thoughtful and expressive, showing respect and engagement in the images they compose for. The New Yorker writes, "This is music that bubbles up from the intersection of aesthetics and the id." Members of the Club Foot Orchestra include (in alphabetical order): Will Bernard (guitar), Sheldon Brown (woodwinds), Beth Custer (clarinets), Kymry Esainko (piano), Chris Grady (trumpet), Sascha Jacobsen (contrabass), Richard Marriott (trombone, winds), Deidre McClure (conductor), Gino Robair (percussion, marimba), and Alicia Rose (violin).
