This genre busting event will feature a mash up of styles, sounds and ideas. There will be music, spoken word, activist groups, art and a whole lot of fun.
Ward Hayden & The Outliers – Modern-day Buddy Holly plus Dwight Yoakam divided by The Mavericks. Think soulful lyrics with a beat you can dance to. They will be celebrating the release of their hot new record “You Judge a Book.”
The Proletariat – Punk pioneers, sparse, edgy, but always hyper-aggressive melodic punk rock with leftist political lyrics. They just released a great new record “Move.”
Errol Strength and the Conscious Band – one of the original reggae bands from Boston during the 1970’s. From Kingston, Jamaica, Errol brings soulful vocals and a heavy groove. They were recently featured on the fantastic Boston reggae compilation “Take Me Home.”
Ken Clark Organ Trio – have been performing around New England and the eastern U.S. forthe past 15 years. “Organist Ken Clark, guitarist Mike Mele, and drummer Steve Chaggaris lean on the beat, (high stepping funk, shuffle boogaloo back beat ballad), build dynamic climaxes sprinkle in jazz solos and deliver the goods.
Julie Rhodes – is a powerhouse vocalist with authentic soul, grounded both in the songwriting traditions of yesterday’s Americana and today’s very present social and political issues.
La Neve – is part dance party, part drag performance, part punk show. Created by members of Downtown Boys, La Neve maintains that band’s social concerns but transfers it through a sexy, digital prism.
Christopher Johnson – is a poet-warrior and provocateur, he is a wordsmith, a tinker-thinker and a friend…
Wire Lines – is punk rock from New Bedford, MA. Jeremy and Ryan have played in bands together before; musically, this sounds like some of them. Kevin has also been in bands before; vocally, this is very similar. Ted hasn’t played drums in a while; but apparently it’s like riding a bike.
