Cheryl Wheeler and More this Week in Londonderry!

Feb 15, 2012 No Comments by

Hi Everyone,

Good morning. Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your sweetie took good care of you yesterday. Nothing wrong with a little pampering once in a while, that’s for sure.

We have three GREAT shows this week beginning Thursday with SUZANNE VEGA. Suzanne was one of my favorite musicians when I was in college. Follow that up with JOHN WAITE on Friday and Cheryl Wheeler on Saturday and that’s one great weekend of music! We still have some tickets available for Suzanne Vega and John Waite. Cheryl’s show is sold out.

I am very excited about our new bookings this week for a few reasons. I have been trying to get a show with HOWIE DAY for a long time. He is one of my favorite independent artists and his song “Collide” is on my iPod workout playlist that I listen to every day. CARL VERHEYEN is a guitar god and has been with SUPERTRAMP for nearly 30 years. The MYSTIX just came out with an excellent new album and their live shows are insanely good. It’s been too long since MELISSA FERRICK has played a show at Tupelo. Yup, if you can’t tell, I’m a little excited about these new shows!

The Psychedelic Furs show that we announced last week is already SOLD OUT.

We booked FOUR new shows this week!

This Week
February 16 SUZANNE VEGA
When her “Luka” hit #3 pop in 1987, earning her three Grammy nominations, including for Record of the Year, Vega ushered in a female, acoustic, folk-pop singer-songwriter movement that would include the likes of Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin, and Indigo Girls as well as the Lilith Fair phenomenon.

February 17 JOHN WAITE
In 1984 John found himself at number one on the hit parade with “Missing You.” The song topped the international charts. Twenty years on, this classic remains a radio staple around the globe. In the late 1980s, Waite released more solo albums before returning to the top of the charts during a two-album tenure as front man for the pop/rock super group Bad English.

February 18 CHERYL WHEELER
This show is SOLD OUT

New Bookings
March 20 CARL VERHEYEN BAND
In his 40-plus years of playing the instrument, Grammy-nominated guitar virtuoso, Carl Verheyen, has created a wildly successful, multi-faceted career. He has released eleven CVB and solo albums, two live DVDs, two instructional DVDs and two books to date. Carl has graced the pages of countless industry publications and been the subject of numerous
articles chronicling his rise to the forefront of the modern day guitar scene. He has won numerous polls and musical honors in the US, Germany, France, Italy and the UK. A member of the smash hit British rock group Supertramp since 1985, Carl has played to millions of enthusiastic fans in sold out arenas worldwide. As the creative force behind the Carl Verheyen Band, he has released an impressive and eclectic discography that showcases his endless talents across a wide array of musical genres. His monthly columns and blog posts for Guitar Player magazine are immensely popular as are his online guitar tips and gear discussions which garner thousands of views. He is debated and quoted daily as the guitar communities’ #1 “how-to” expert.

April 21 HOWIE DAY
Beginning his career as a solo artist in the late 1990s, Day became known for his extensive touring and in-concert use of samplers and effects pedals in order to accompany himself. He self-financed and self-released his first album, Australia, in 2000.
Day eventually signed a recording contract with major label Epic Records- in 2002 and has since re-released his debut as well as producing a follow up, Stop All The World Now. Despite initially sluggish sales, Stop All The World Now was certified gold in early 2005 and has produced a number of singles, including the hits “She Says” and “Collide”, Day’s most successful to date. The track became Epic Records’ first platinum single, eventually selling 1.5 million downloads.

May 5 MELISSA FERRICK
Singer/songwriter Melissa Ferrick emerged in 1994 as part of a group of new female alternative singer/songwriters, much in the vein of Liz Phair. Ferrick began singing in coffeehouses after dropping out of college, eventually winding up in Boston. Her major breakthrough arrived one night when she replaced Morrissey’s opening act less than an hour before showtime. Ferrick’s performance impressed Morrissey and he invited her to open for him during the rest of the tour. The tour earned her a small cult following as well as a contract with Atlantic Records.

June 8 THE MYSTIX
An all-star band representing the very best journeymen of the Boston/New York music scenes, with roots in R&B, Rock and Roll and country. The Mystix are rapidly gaining recognition for their unique sound, featuring inspired original material and superbly crafted arrangements. This show follows a brand new CD that the Mystix have just produced!
