Brian Alex on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes
You know that Gloucester’s music scene is going places when we can attract a star like Entrain’s Brian Alex three times in the same week!
Tonight (WED) he’ll be the featured guest on the Cape Ann TV show “Local Music Seen with Allen Estes” airing at 6:30pm. And if you miss it, you can watch the whole show on-line here.
Tomorrow, you can see him live at The Rhumb Line 8:30pm with Dave Sag, John Keegan, John Hyde, Mark Earley and Ephraim Lowell.
Then on Saturday, he’ll be fronting the ENTRAIN benefit for Gloucester’s UU Church Meetinghouse at 8pm (save $7.25 if you get tickets here). It’s a good week to get a taste of Brian’s extraordinary and versatile talent!
Thanks, to everyone who came out to support Gloucester’s UU Church Meetinghouse Restoration last Saturday — and especially to 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis, Joe Cardoza, Brendan Burns, Meff & Dennis Monagle, who delivered a stellar performance that had the crowd swaying and singing to “All You Need Is Love!”
Next Saturday we change it up a bit and ROCK THE MEETINGHOUSE with Martha’s Vineyard-based, six-piece ENTRAIN, featuring founder/drummer Tom Major and lead singer/guitar wiz Brian Alex, for their only North Shore concert this spring. As Entrain’s conga/djembe/trombonist Sam Holmstock says, “The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums!” Nothing more to say, really. Just watch the video (get tickets here)
Here’s your last chance in 2013 to be in the studio audience when we tape two new shows for Local Music Seen with Allen Estes. We start taping about 2pm with guest Ken Bonfield, who is featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine this month. Then we welcome Brian Alex of Entrain for our second show.
Both tremendously talented musicians promise to make for excellent shows. You can join the studio audience at Cape Ann TV, 38 Blackburn Center (get directions). As usual we ask that you get there by 2pm, but don’t expect us to start on time — it’s TV, something always happens.
Here are a couple of videos to give you an idea of the very high level of musicianship you can expect to enjoy.
