Wednesday night’s gig…

We played our monthly gig at starlite Wednesday night and raised our usual roof with outstanding performances from all in front of a small and enthusiastic audience.

Which doesn’t tell you much beyond we had a good time and the folks who came did too.

We’ll be back on March 28 for more of the same.  Stay tuned!


Starlite, 1/31

We kicked off our 2018 season at starlite in Southbridge with three potent sets following the monthly BeSpoken poetry night, which is also worth any poetry lovers’ time.  It is always on the last Wednesday of the month, and through May of 2018, we’ll be there afterward as well.

The band stayed mostly with our more high energy stuff on Wednesday, which seemed to go over well with the crowd.  Included was our latest piece — a medley of new poem “In A Shithole Country” sliding on in to our piece “Punk.”

Need to give a shout out to drummer Chris O’Donnell, who celebrated a birth day on Thursday the 1st and played some particularly great riffs and solos on Wednesday night…

We’ll be back at starlite on February 28 –hope to see you there!

Fun show last night at Nick’s

Still recovering from last night’s show at Nick’s…a little stiff, a little sore, a lot happy.  The band did two excellent sets of the usual fun stuff, including an improvised piece based on a new poem that investigates the quaint notion of “shithole” countries….hmmmm.

After the second set, Chris, Chris, and Faro launched into some improvising on stage, with Faro breaking out the electric violin on some Irish-flavored music, provided by Mr. Lawton on guitar and the usual drum magic from O-D on his new Gretsch kit.

We’ll be back on stage in just a wee bit when we start our last-Wednesday-of-the-month residency at starlite on January 31.  We’ll take the stage around 9, after the monthly BeSpoken poetry reading.  Hope to see you there!

2018 just got busy…REAL BUSY.

Hi all —

First off, Happy New Year!  Hope 2018 proves less…well, you know.

Second:  we have been busy getting ourselves some GIGS for the new year.

We’ll be back at Nick’s, 124 Millbury Street in Worcester MA, on Saturday January 13th.  Figure on us going on around 8:30 or 9.

After that, we’ll be kicking off a special run of shows at starlite, 39n Hamilton Street in Southbridge, MA on January 31, when we’ll be performing our usual evening of high energy jazz and suchlike with poetry following the monthly BeSpoken reading on the last Wednesday of every month — we’ll be there January 31, February 28th, March 28th, April 25th, and May 30th.  The reading’s at 7 and we’ll be going on around 9.

Faro and Tony will also be doing a TV taping in Easton on February 13th, but more details on that later.

Exciting times…here’s to a good year ahead!
