New Bookings and Shows in Londonderry!

Mar 28, 2012 No Comments by

Hi Everyone,

What an awesome weekend of music we had this past week! I know I’ve said this s few times before, but once in a while an artist leaves a little magic in the venue. This was certainly the scenario with Karla Bonoff on Saturday and always seems to be the case when Willy Porter plays the venue.

I would like to make a VERY strong music recommendation to you—go to the JAMES HUNTER SHOW!!! There are very few performers working in the soul style that James has mastered. I guarantee you this show will blow you away!

I am PSYCHED about our new show with The BoDeans. I’ve been working on getting this band for a long time. I guarantee you this show will sell out really quick. Get tickets for this one right away if you want to attend.

It’s time to vote for the BEST OF NEW HAMPSHIRE awards again this year! In past years, we have held a free concert if we won the “Best Concert Venue” category, which we have won for seven years in a row. I’m offering the same deal this year, too. Please go to the NH Magazine website and vote for us. If we win, I will surprise you with a free show. We have had some great shows in the past to celebrate winning.

We booked FIVE new shows this week!

This Week
March 30 JAMES HUNTER
James Hunter is one of the best (and one of the few) British blue-eyed soul singers to emerge in the late 20th century. Hunter began his roots music career in the 1980s under the name Howlin’ Wilf. His solo recordings feature rhythm & blues in the style of the 1950s, pitched between R&B, early rock & roll, and early soul. His 1994 solo debut, —Believe What I Say, had guest appearances by Doris Troy and Van Morrison, and Hunter appeared on a couple of Morrison’s mid-’90s albums, as well as performing as part of Morrison’s Rhythm & Blues Revue. Hunter, also a skilled guitarist, wrote most of the material on his 2001 release Kick It Around. Go Records/Rounder picked him up a few years later, and he released his third full-length album, People Gonna Talk, in 2006. The album went on to be nominated for a 2006 Grammy Award.

New Bookings
May 16 PAUL CAPORINO of MOTO
Starting in the late 80s, Paul Caporino and his band, Masters of the Obvious, have been playing all over the United States and beyond, their hook-laden brand of smartass rock earning them a worldwide cult following.
Over the past 30 years the band has undergone numerous lineup changes, but it has always functioned primarily as a platform for Paul Caporino’s songwriting. This repertoire includes hundreds of songs in a variety of genres such as pop, punk rock, metal, soul, noise music, garage punk and new wave, showcasing Caporino’s offbeat and often vulgar sense of humor along with his extensive knowledge of the popular music of the previous thirty years. To reward the astute listener, the music contains winking references to the Beatles, the Kinks, Bob Dylan, Donovan, Led Zeppelin, The Jam, Black Flag, Hüsker Dü, Judas Priest and many other artists.

June 2 LEON REDBONE
While his gravelly baritone and omnipresent fedora, dark glasses and Groucho Marx moustache made him one of the more distinct and recognizable characters in popular music, little is known about the neo-vaudeville crooner Leon Redbone. Throughout his career, he steadfastly refused to divulge any information about his background or personal life—
Because Redbone first emerged as a performer in Toronto during the 1970s, he was believed to be Canadian; his work, a revival of pre-World War II ragtime, jazz and blues sounds, recalled the work of performers ranging from Jelly Roll Morton and Bing Crosby to blackface star Emmett Miller—

June 9 GEORGIA SATELLITES
From their bar band roots to their chart-crashing megahits to their current tour of sold-out shows, The Georgia Satellites have kept the world moving to sweet, gritty, three-chord rock n roll. Founded in 1985 by Rick Richards, Rick Price, singer Dan Baird and drummer Mauro Magellan, the Satellites quickly launched into stardom on the back of rockers like Keep Your Hands to Yourself, Battleship Chains, Hippy Hippy Shake and others. Critically acclaimed albums and mind-bending performances earned the boys a permanent spot in music history. Listen

June 30 THE BRUCE MARSHALL GROUP
The Bruce Marshall Group formed in 1991 and has been performing and recording steadily throughout the US since their inception, delighting crowds and garnering rave reviews at every stop. The Bruce Marshall Group live show treats their fans to a soaring ride as they rip through a catalogue of original material that truly sets this band apart. They love to mix it up, whether it’s pulling off exciting jams that build with dynamics and layering, or playing the concise arrangements of their songs with discipline and taste. The sound defies categorization, slipping seamlessly around touches of Blues, R&B, Country Blues and Southern Boogie. The songs are mostly upbeat, but even those dealing with love lost and missed opportunities, carry an underlying sense of hope and optimism. The band continues to work tirelessly, has started working on their next CD and must be experienced live to be fully appreciated.

October 4 THE BODEANS
Twenty five years after their T-Bone Burnett produced debut Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams led them to win a Rolling Stone reader’s poll as “Best New American Band,” The BoDeans are still rocking and harmonizing gracefully, touring the U.S. regularly and exposing the kids of their longtime steadfast fans to real, heartfelt and trend-free music. Best known for their mid-90’s Billboard Top 20 hit anthem “Closer To Free,” which became the theme song for Fox’s “Party Of Five,” Kurt Neumann (vocals and electric guitar) is still focused on, “writing songs that bring good things to the world.” The new album, Indigo Dreams, is a salute to the working man – his dreams, his desires, his love, his responsibilities, his ethos.
For the BoDeans, the fact that their music was never easily pigeonholed into a specific genre or style was more a strength than a problem as their career developed. They followed their debut with Outside Looking In (1987), Home (1989), Black and White (1991), and Go Slow Down (1993), which featured “Closer To Free” which became a massive pop and adult contemporary hit when the world heard it every week via “Party of Five.” They released the 2 CD live set Joe Dirt Car (1995) and Blend (1996).
