Alek Razdan and the A-Train Orchestra

Alek Razdan and the A-Train Orchestra is composed of 20-year-old Alek Razdan on vocals and saxes, his father Rikki Razdan on saxes, Ken Demaine on bass, Dave “Doc” Vincent on drums, and Dan Whalen on guitar. The group is based out of Rockport and Gloucester, MA, and was formed in the summer of 2010.
Alek Razdan and the A-Train Orchestra appear regularly around Cape Ann and the Boston area. They have performed at festivals, night-clubs, and private parties. Playing a unique blend of blues, jump-blues, and swing covers and originals, the group puts on an energetic and extremely danceable show.
The band’s new album, “Alek Razdan and the A-Train Orchestra: Two-Timin’”, was released in January of 2012. The title track, “Two-Timin’”, was the Grammy U award winner of the Indaba Music Master Critique competition,  held in New York City, New York.

Rhumb Line Thursday Night Blues Party

Well, it’s that time, again; good ol’ Fiesta is almost here, and I’m almost there. So, in keeping with tradition(?) Have I got a guy for you. Mr. Brad Foucher, glitarist of the axis mundi, will be appearing and disappearing all night long this Thursday nite wailing and speaking in tongues, trying to get it right. This guy is to traditional blues as Birdseye is to frozen fish.A good place to be as an alternative to greasy sausage and cotton candy.
