Has it been close to two months…

…since we last posted here?  Damn…sorry about that.

Then again, there hasn’t been a lot to report.  We’ve continued our every-other-Sunday residency at Nick’s in Worcester, MA, delighting our small fan base there with the usual repertoire and occasional mad improvisational bits.

This Saturday, May 18th, we’ll be playing as part of a two day festival up in Fitchburg, MA with TONS of bands and solo performers.  We’ll be outdoors on top of a parking garage at 1:30 for one set, right near host venue Strong Style Coffee (which will also be hosting indoor acts) on 13 Cushing Street in the heart of downtown Fitchburg.  Great acts both Friday and Saturday.  Check out the full schedule here on Facebook.

And in August we will be returning for some dates back at our old home away from home in Southbridge, MA, the wonderful starlite.  More on that as the date approaches.

Hope to see you at a gig soon!

Of course, if you can’t get to see us, check us out on Spotify or Apple Music or Amazon Music where our newest single “Crumbs” and the live album “Live at AS220” continue to do well, and on all the various purchasing sites to get copies of our work.  We’ve added a couple of links below, but honestly we’re on everything from Tidal to Deezer, and you can hear us anywhere by checking for our name at your service of choice:

The Duende Project on Spotify
The Duende Project on iTunes

If you’re interested in any of our older albums, there’s always the ol’ reliable Bandcamp site. 

Thanks for your support, folks.

St. Patrick’s Day report…

Good times at the gig at Nick’s this past Sunday…we added a couple of standards from the Irish repertoire to the set — Tony broke out the acoustic for the evening, Faro did it up with the electric fiddle, and Lawton held down the mandolin seat on “Dirty Old Town” and “Whiskey In The Jar.”

We’ll be back in action at Nick’s on the 31st.

More dates to come!

Has it been a month??

So sorry for the long break — weather and various other things got in the way and we don’t have a lot of news to report.  Want to encourage everyone to get out and hit Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal and the rest of those digital spaces and look us up, add us to your playlists, download some tracks, and get your dose of Duende Project.

Also, don’t forget that our first five albums are still available on Bandcamp.

Every other Sunday continues to be the home of live Duende Project shows down at Nick’s, 124 Millbury Street in Worcester, MA.  Come see us after the Listen Poetry reading and we’ll play for you from 9ish to 11:30ish.

Thanks for hanging in!


New gigs, new music…

Happy new year from us…

February 8th, the band breaks new ground as the first headliner for New Music Night at Tavern On The Hill, 336 Old Colony Road, Norton MA.  8-11:30.  Come support us and the venue.

We return to our alternating Sunday nights at Nick’s in Worcester starting February 17th.  We’ll be on after the Listen poetry reading, which you should come to if you’re nearby and want a double dose of poetry.

Speaking of which, Tony will be doing a solo set of his work as the feature for the following week at Listen.  February 24th, 7-8:30 or so.

And most important, we’ve got a NEW SINGLE out!  “Crumbs” is now available for streaming and purchase on all the big sites from Spotify to iTunes.  Check it out, add it to your playlists, and maybe even buy yerself a copy.

About the last show of 2018…

Which was last night at Nick’s, and which featured a decent crowd, and included a rare poetic cover of Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s “Christ Came Down” backed with bop stylings by O-D and Faro; Faro and Chris doing up “Carol Of the Bells” on bass (all the parts, all the time!); Capri Lanning-Cafaro jumping in on vocals for covers of “Stairway to Heaven” and “Immigrant Song” by audience request (for indeed, we contain multitudes); and Tony doing the usual mix of mayhem and improvised poetry that passes for high art.

Apologies to the couple who wanted us to do “either .38 Special or the Cars.”  We’re working on it. Not really, but hey…it’s the thought that counts.

2018 was a good year for the band — a live album out (have you bought or streamed it yet?) and 20+ gigs out there in the books.  Here’s to more and more of you seeing them.

Happy holidays to all, and to all a good time…
