Captain Carlo’s this Week!

Thursday: Greenhead

Come and see Greenhead in their Captain Carlo’s debut. “Greenhead” is two guys (Mike and Chuck) who play acoustic guitar, sing harmonies and do a range of music from upbeat rock and roll to mellow brunch and dinner music. Greenhead’s song-list includes Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Cash, John Mayer, The Beatles, Weezer, Ryan Adams, Snow Patrol, James Taylor, Plain White Ts, Jack Johnson, Elvis Costello, Lyle Lovett, and more.


As The Nation’s premier tribute to U2, The Joshua Tree pride themselves with their ability to generate a unique musical experience that does not lend itself to impersonations.

Without compromising artistic integrity, the band has gone to great lengths to reproduce the distinct sound of one of the world’s most popular rock bands. Unique to The Joshua Tree is their dedication to the entire U2 songbook, including early fan favorites from the 1980-1987 period (Boy, October, War, The Unforgettable Fire, and The Joshua Tree).

Playing each song with the same intensity and emotion, the band covers all phases of U2’s career from their first album Boy to the most recent, No Line on the Horizon.

Now Joshua Tree comes to Captain Carlo’s this Friday July 24th out on the deck and under the stars. Tell all your friends about this one it’s going to be a great night of music.

Saturday: The Herland Brothers Band

Boston based THE HERLAND BROTHERS BAND is a top-notch cover/original band, meticulously performing the greatest Rock/Dance hits of yesteryear and today. Since 1994 HB’s high energy cover performances continue to wow and electrify audiences from Maine to New York, with their unique ability to cover all genres vocally and musically, matching the original artist renditions. The band’s original music continues to also excite, leading the Boston Globe to write “A band on the rise with a bright future”. The HB band has performed as either the headliner and/or as an opener for national acts all over the Northeast, including shows at the legendary CBGB’s in New York City.
