The Four Legged Faithful Playing Nov 23 at Cape Ann Brewery

photo171

The Four Legged Faithful are a band made up of 4 ordinary men who all thrive on playing music together. Their aim is not to play traditional folk or bluegrass music, but instead to create beautiful, heart-felt, and genuine music using traditional folk/bluegrass instruments. They create a sound that is honest and reflects the band’s many musical influences from nearly all genres. All members sing; creating multiple combinations of 2, 3, and 4-part harmonies. All members write and sing songs about their thoughts, families, and the natural world that surrounds them. For a band without a drummer, The Four Legged Faithful achieve an incredible level of intensity using foot percussion and layered rhythms throughout every measure.  Check out this video and go see them on Saturday November 23rd.

The Broadcast at Minglewood on Friday November 8th

The Broadcast is hard-edged, soulful rock music bursting-at-the-seams. Drawing much of their ambience from 70’s classic rock, they’re a band with an explosive female lead singer, riffing guitar, mood-altering keys and a rock-solid rhythm section. A dynamic ensemble known for their powerful live performances, The Broadcast continues to break new ground across the country with vocal powerhouse Caitlin Krisko leading every step of the way. Described by audiences as a modern day “Grace Slick meets Led Zeppelin”, The Broadcast’s infectious energy and authentic approach to rock & roll music has propelled them into the live music community spotlight. The band is currently on tour supporting their new studio album “Dodge the Arrow” released September 2013.

The Holmes Brothers at Shalin Liu TONIGHT – still some seats left

THE HOLMES BROTHERS
Friday, October 25, 8 PM
At Shalin Liu Performance Center
Rockport, MA
978-546-7391

Over the course of their 30-plus year career, The Holmes Brothers– bassist/vocalist Sherman Holmes, guitarist/pianist/vocalist Wendell Holmes, drummer/vocalist, and brother-in-spirit Popsy Dixon–have been feeding the souls of their devoted and ever-growing fan base with a joyous and moving blend of blues, gospel, soul, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, and country. Their amazing three-part harmony singing, mixing Wendell’s gruff and gravelly vocals with Popsy’s soaring falsetto and Sherman’s rich baritone brings the soul and spirit of gospel music into everything they perform. Equally gripping is the rhythmic foundation laid down by Sherman’s bass playing and Popsy’s drumming, complimenting Wendell’s blues-soaked guitar solos and church-inspired piano playing. 

From winning multiple Blues Music Awards to sharing stages and recordings with legends like Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Merle Haggard, Keith Richards, Al Green, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, and Rosanne Cash, the band easily blends Saturday night’s roadhouse rock with the gospel fervor and harmonies of Sunday morning’s church service. Their most recent album Feed My Soul, produced by longtime friend and collaborator Joan Osborne, is an album of friendship, loyalty, and family.

“Glorious, rootsy R&B, gospel, blues and country. Full
of soul and surprises.”
USA TODAY

“A breathtaking and heartfelt journey through gospel-drenched
soul, blues, funk, and country.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“Timeless, deeply soulful and uplifting gospel-drenched blues,
street corner doo-wop, ballads, R&B, country and funk. “
The New York Times

Local rising star, Michael Thomas Doyle opens for The Slide Brothers Nov 2 in Beverly

Local singer/songwriter Michael Thomas Doyle will open for legendary pedal steel masters, The Slide Brothers on Saturday, November 2 at Beverly’s fully restored, historic Larcom Theatre.

Mike Doyle has been compared to John Mayer, with the Noise Magazine proclaiming his “talent by the boatload,” and likening his live guitar skills to those of Keith Richards.  Mike is one of those young musicians you want to watch over the next few years.  See a short bio of Michael Thomas Doyle here and  get tickets here.  It won’t be long before you’ll have to pay over a hundred bucks for a crappy seat in a huge venue far away with expensive parking if you want to see him.  Check out the video to see what we mean:

Joan Osborne at Shalin Liu on Friday October 11- Only a Few Seats Left

JOAN OSBORNE
Get Tickets

Armed with her strong, sultry voice, Joan Osborne’s genre-crossing prowess has garnered accolades as a singer-songwriter, pop hitmaker, and rootsy, bluesy soul singer for almost two decades. Since the
release of her 1995 breakout album Relish and her hit song “One of Us” that catapulted her into super stardom status with seven Grammy nominations, Osborne has waded deeper into the world of blues and R&B, from which her love of singing began. In 2002 she cemented her reputation as a top tier soul singer with the acclaimed documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown and a tour with legendary Motown band The Funk Brothers. Earning a 2013 Grammy nomination, her latest album Bring It on Home is her first album composed entirely of covers in that genre, featuring songs by Muddy Waters, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Otis Redding, and more ranging from Slim Harpo’s “Shake Your Hips” to the Bill Withers deep cut “Same Love That Made Me Laugh.”

Check out this video of Joan:

Breaking News: Beer & Wine available at Saturday’s Larcom Theatre Concert

Yesterday Rich Marino, owner of Chianti’s Tuscan Restaurant and Jazz Lounge in Beverly, was granted a one-day license to serve beer and wine at our concert featuring the Allen Estes Band at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly.

In case you don’t know Chianti’s, it’s one of those restaurants worth going over the bridge for.  The food is excellent with professional — but not stuffy — service.  Best of all, Chianti’s is listed as one of the “Top 150 Jazz Rooms in the World” by Downbeat magazine.  An accomplished musician himself, Rich knows how to treat his music-loving customers.

Chianti’s will be offering the perfect beers and wines to complement Saturday’s music — and you can even take the drinks back to your seat, so you don’t miss a beat of this extraordinary show.

You can still get good seats by clicking here.  The Box Office at Larcom Theatre will open on Saturday around 2pm.  We hope to see you at the show!
