King Arthur Junior
Nov 14 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

King Arthur Junior was born and raised in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. A talented athlete growing up, hockey was his main sport. He was recruited to play Division III college hockey at Castleton University. This led him to meet a friend who made him listen to The Allman Brothers Band “Live At The FIllmore East.” King Arthur Junior’s life would be forever changed. Up to that point, he had only played acoustic guitar. His primary influence was Dave Matthews, but, once those electric blues lines were ingrained, an electric guitar was a must. With his first Telecaster at the age of 21, King Arthur Junior has set out to figure out how to play those lines just like the greats: Hendrix, Clapton, Allman, and all of the Kings.

King Arthur Junior resides in Rutland, Vermont with his young children and his Wife, Melissa. He now has the ability to play in front of crowds. King Arthur Junior is on a mission to spread peace and love across the land, playing out everywhere he can. The King was recently selected for the Massachusetts Solo Artist Awards and looks forward to using this opportunity to expand.

Taking his playing to the next level, he has decided it is time to share his knowledge and will be giving guitar lessons locally.

Be on the look out for a three track EP coming this fall.

Open Mic ~ Wednesday Friends Day
Nov 15 @ 10:00 pm – Nov 16 @ 1:30 am

EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT Any style music, original or cover songs welcome. No matter what instrument you play, come on down and jam. A house band is there for back up. If you’re in a band, are part of a band, or a soloist, come on down for a great night! | 10pm-1.30am

You can play any of our instruments as a participant. We provide the entire music equipment setup (we encourage people to bring their own drum sticks, guitars & bass, but it is not required). Anyone can sign up and then play away, no purchase required!

Our Open Mic is run a little differently than most other Open Mics. Each participant is able to sign up for his/her desired slot and then choose which of the house band musicians that they want backing their set. (ex: Joe signs up for 11pm-11.20pm. Joe plays acoustic guitar. Joe chooses to have the entire house band backing him on his entire set so he lets us know and we make it happen.) When we have that information it makes it easier to call everyone from the audience to get them up on the stage as quickly as possible so we keep the excitement in the air.

As a musician, this night of music is worth checking out and taking part in. Any and all musicians are welcome!

The Medicinal Purpose
Nov 17 @ 9:30 pm – Nov 18 @ 1:00 am

Rock is alive, but it’s not well…and in desperate need of some healing.

The Medicinal Purpose brings together three of New Jersey’s favorite sons on a mission to cure the masses with their raw style of Rhythm & Blues music. Out front, a voice and lyrics emerge, both shaped by years of hardship and heartbreak. Brother Sal’s soul flows through both like a morphine drip, but it does even more so in his guitar playing. Picking up where Mick Taylor and Sun Ra left off, he and his Telecaster have been known to bend everyone into a state of electroshock euphoria. The relentless pulse of the rhythm section is the product of a longtime friendship between bassist Chris Ball and drummer Andrei Koribanics, who, even at the band’s softest moments, keep everyone moving with an adrenaline-fueled groove.

After years of playing different music with different people in different bands, this line-up has come together for the common good. This is more than rock. This is sonic love that transcends time and genre. It is a product of unfettered musical trust. It is rooted in the blues, and just like all music with a purpose, it is purely medicinal.

Side effects may include shaking of the hips, bobbing of the head, mind explosions, and complex emotions.

Amanda McCarthy
Nov 28 @ 9:30 pm – Nov 29 @ 12:30 am

Amanda McCarthy is an award winning, multi-genre singer/songwriter from the greater Boston area. She is also available for hire to play cover based gigs. She recently released her long awaited debut EP, The Good, The Bad & The Awkward, and you can be on the lookout for her new EP to be released in Fall 2015.

You’ll usually find Amanda playing a solo acoustic set, or as an acoustic duo with brother/lead guitarist Mark McCarthy, but once in a while you may catch Amanda playing with a full band, or playing another instrument. (Piano, ukulele, or select percussion)

Although she will always sing the songs her fans have known since she was a teenager, Amanda’s also been shining light of a lot of newer original music moving in a new direction. Her sound and style centers around the pop genre, but each individual song combines elements from other genres including rock, alternative, country, indie and blues.

“With clever yet introspective songwriting delivered through a powerful voice and equally powerful guitar, Amanda has proven that she has the talent and wisdom to get onstage with the heavyweights and stay there.”
-Daniel Kilgour, Our City Radio Portsmouth

Alex2e
Dec 5 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

My name is Alex Tuohey (or Alex2e) and I’m here to explain what I’m about. To be honest, I was never a music kid growing up. I played sports my whole life and never took to music like some others did. At my high school it was seen as “uncool” and although I never thought that, I wanted to be on the jock side of the house.

Later on in life at the age of 23, a major surgery laid me up on the couch for 2 months and I hit a pretty low place in my personal life. I’m not much of a TV guy and always had a “bucket list” type thought that I’d like to learn to play guitar. So that’s what I did. Through watching countless YouTube videos and online lessons I begin to teach myself guitar and drive my parents and later roommates insane in the process. The hours turned into months that turned into years. At 24 I begin to try and sing. I worked my ass off at both and finally played my first live show at 25, accompanying a local recording artist as part of a duo. Now at 28, I play roughly 10-12 shows a month, in cities like Hartford, Boston, Burlington, NYC and Chicago. Eventually I would like to play across the country. Impossible? That’s for you to decide. As cliché as it sounds, I don’t believe anything is impossible. I plan to keep grinding, outworking and taking any opportunity to let my music be heard. Whether it’s in front of 100s of people or it’s just in “My Mother’s Bathroom”, I will ride this dream until I can’t anymore.

My new EP is named “My Mother’s Bathroom” because for awhile it was the only place that would let me play. The Talkboy you see me using (giving “Home Alone” nostalgia) is a logo I use because as a kid I would hold it up to the TV and radio to try and catch my favorite songs on a cassette tape. It’s an honor that you even took the time to read this far to get to know me a little better. Eventually, I’ll have much cooler stuff to put in here but for now I think this is a good starting point. I hope to meet you soon.

Seth Rosenbloom
Dec 29 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Hailed as ‘the future of guitar playing’, and commanding the highest respect and praise from his colleagues and audiences alike, Seth Rosenbloom brings a highly personal, inspired and expressive approach to his music. Seth’s dazzling lines and singing vibrato on the guitar along with his distinctively sultry vocals result in his own interpretation of the blues.

Seth was born into a musical family in Waltham, Massachusetts. After playing violin in his earliest years and raised on a backdrop of Mozart and Beethoven, Seth took up guitar at age eleven, originally influenced by Elvis Presley and The Beatles. He soon began performing whenever he could at blues jams and solo concerts at local venues where he was able to distill and forge his own musical style and personality.

At the young age of sixteen, Seth won acceptance with a performance merit scholarship, to the prestigious Berklee College of Music. At his entrance audition, upon playing ‘Glasgow Kiss’ by John Petrucci, one judge declared that he had never heard such a technically clean performance of the piece. A dean’s list student at Berklee, Seth developed his compositional and technical skills in both jazz and improvisational music, extensively expanding his musical vocabulary.

Seth also had some of his most inspiring and memorable formative experiences as a student during summer sessions at the Raleigh Music Academy. Coming full circle in recent years, Seth has felt highly honored to be a featured artist at that very event, teaching and performing alongside Andy Timmons, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses) and Andy Wood (Rascal Flatts, LoCash). Seth has also been a regular at the International Musicians Summit (formerly International Guitar Summit) held annually in Durham, NC. He has been very active as a featured artist at many other performances, clinics and musical conventions throughout the country.

With a sound rooted in the blues, Seth draws inspiration from classic influences including Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as more contemporary guitarists such as Eric Gales, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Trucks. What makes Seth’s performances so special is his deeply committed intensity. Combined with his engaging and sincere personality, Seth never fails to delight audiences.

2017 is an especially exciting time, with an expanded East Coast touring schedule, performances at festivals, and especially the recording of Seth’s debut album.

Arno & The Low Down have all been playing in bands for years, out of the same old cliche’ songbooks, wondering, “What happened to all of these great rock tunes that no one covers?” Well, a great song is a great song, no matter where or when it came from! So we’ve put our sound on, modernized, and revived the “Old School” rock style that we grew up with, mix in some of our own, and apply that passion to some current music too,
So come on out and strap in for a great time!

The Juke Joint 5
Jan 6 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

If you’re looking for down home, old school, no-nonsense, house-rocking rhythm & blues, you’ve come to the right place! The Juke Joint 5 focuses on the sounds you might have heard emerging in the early 1950s from some distant, static-crackling, late night radio station: jumped-up urban rhythm and blues; the raw Delta country sound just recently getting electrified in Chicago; Memphis rockabilly; and the primitive beginnings of rock and roll.

The Juke Joint 5, formed several years ago, is a tight-knit and busy Boston-based group that continually awes audiences with their high energy stage presence and dedication to down home, old school, no-nonsense, house-rocking rhythm & blues. The group’s powerful vocals are provided by Gretchen Bostrom, performing the JJ5’s wide range of material from the group’s originals to songs by Ruth Brown, Louis Jordan, LaVern Baker, Don Covay, Big Mama Thornton, Little Richard, Slim Harpo, and other such classic blues/r&b performers. Joining Gretchen in the front line are two old pro blues players: Silvertone Steve is a slide guitar master and veteran of J.B. Hutto’s band; gritty saxman Dick “the Poet” Lourie performed frequently with the late Big Jack Johnson. John Bunszell on bass and drummer Richard Malcolm make up the band’s solid rhythm section. Both Richard and John have played with some of the area’s finest musicians: John has performed with Matt Stubbs, Racky Thomas and more; Richard has toured with Luther “Guitar” Johnson and has performed with a variety of Boston-based groups.

Band members work together on other projects that have grown out of the deeply shared commitment to their style of blues, including regular visits to Clarksdale, Mississippi, in the heart of the Delta, where Gretchen and Dick perform with local blues musicians.

Alex2e
Jan 9 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

My name is Alex Tuohey (or Alex2e) and I’m here to explain what I’m about. To be honest, I was never a music kid growing up. I played sports my whole life and never took to music like some others did. At my high school it was seen as “uncool” and although I never thought that, I wanted to be on the jock side of the house.

Later on in life at the age of 23, a major surgery laid me up on the couch for 2 months and I hit a pretty low place in my personal life. I’m not much of a TV guy and always had a “bucket list” type thought that I’d like to learn to play guitar. So that’s what I did. Through watching countless YouTube videos and online lessons I begin to teach myself guitar and drive my parents and later roommates insane in the process. The hours turned into months that turned into years. At 24 I begin to try and sing. I worked my ass off at both and finally played my first live show at 25, accompanying a local recording artist as part of a duo. Now at 28, I play roughly 10-12 shows a month, in cities like Hartford, Boston, Burlington, NYC and Chicago. Eventually I would like to play across the country. Impossible? That’s for you to decide. As cliché as it sounds, I don’t believe anything is impossible. I plan to keep grinding, outworking and taking any opportunity to let my music be heard. Whether it’s in front of 100s of people or it’s just in “My Mother’s Bathroom”, I will ride this dream until I can’t anymore.
 
My new EP is named “My Mother’s Bathroom” because for awhile it was the only place that would let me play. The Talkboy you see me using (giving “Home Alone” nostalgia) is a logo I use because as a kid I would hold it up to the TV and radio to try and catch my favorite songs on a cassette tape. It’s an honor that you even took the time to read this far to get to know me a little better. Eventually, I’ll have much cooler stuff to put in here but for now I think this is a good starting point. I hope to meet you soon.

Open Mic ~ Wednesday Friends Day
Jan 10 @ 10:00 pm – Jan 11 @ 1:30 am

EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT Any style music, original or cover songs welcome. No matter what instrument you play, come on down and jam. A house band is there for back up. If you’re in a band, are part of a band, or a soloist, come on down for a great night! | 10pm-1.30am

You can play any of our instruments as a participant. We provide the entire music equipment setup (we encourage people to bring their own drum sticks, guitars & bass, but it is not required). Anyone can sign up and then play away, no purchase required!

Our Open Mic is run a little differently than most other Open Mics. Each participant is able to sign up for his/her desired slot and then choose which of the house band musicians that they want backing their set. (ex: Joe signs up for 11pm-11.20pm. Joe plays acoustic guitar. Joe chooses to have the entire house band backing him on his entire set so he lets us know and we make it happen.) When we have that information it makes it easier to call everyone from the audience to get them up on the stage as quickly as possible so we keep the excitement in the air.

As a musician, this night of music is worth checking out and taking part in. Any and all musicians are welcome!

The Matthew Stubbs Band
Jan 12 @ 9:30 pm – Jan 13 @ 12:00 am

Currently, Matthew Stubbs is performing with the legendary Charlie Musselwhite Band, as well as his own band, The Matthew Stubbs Band. He recently was named the 2009 Outstanding Guitarist from Blues Audience Magazine and was a 2009 Boston Music Award Nominee for Blues Act of the Year.

As a bandleader and composer, Stubbs has earned himself a reputation for penning soul-drenched Roots & Blues guitar instrumentals. His well-crafted songs are melodic and original; echoing the sounds of historic greats such as Booker T and the MGs, Earl Hooker, Lonnie Mack, and Freddie King. Blues guitarist Rick Holmstrom sums it up best: “The thing I like best about Matt Stubbs playing is that he leaves space. There are plenty of young blues guitarists who can play a whole lot of guitar, and Matt can hang with ’em all, but there are very few who understand that it’s important to let it breathe. I dig the economy and simplicity of Matt’s playing. He’s got an old soul.”

Matthew Stubbs released his first solo record “Soul Bender” on the VizzTone label group in August 2008, which received much critical acclaim. He will be following this with a new release in March 2010 entitled “Medford & Main” on Chicago based label Blue Bella Records.

In addition to playing with The Charlie Musselwhite band, Stubbs has also toured and recorded with many top Blues and Soul acts such as Junior Watson, John Nemeth, Janiva Magness, Lynwood Slim, Brian Templeton and Sax Gordon. Stubbs continues to maintain a full touring schedule, both as a bandleader and sideman. With the release of Medford & Main and many upcoming tours, 2010 looks to be one of his busiest years yet.

Arthur James solo
Jan 16 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

The southern New Hampshire guitarist Arthur James applies his craft to meaningful original blues guitar and vocals. His voice is so hefty you’d think he was seven feet tall. His guitar sounds larger than life too, due to the volumes of emotive release he offers throughout his music.

His songs are, vocally, melodically, and rhythmically, beautiful expressions of what has been going on inside him for quite some time. This singer-songwriter has the blues down pat. It’s a form of music that can expressed the highest highs and lowest lows of the human experience.

Living Blues Magazine wrote: “Wildcat emerges as one of the most entertaining songwriters in contemporary blues…and his band doesn’t know the meaning of dull!”
The band has opened for just about every major blues artist to visit Massachusetts, from Greg Allman to John Lee Hooker to The Stray Cats, and has been backup band for Bo Diddley and James Cotton. Recently, they opened for Coco Montoya and later Duke Robillard at Northampton’s Iron Horse Music Hall.

B Movie Blues
Jan 27 @ 9:00 pm – 11:30 pm

At its core the B-Movie Blues Brothers are Fritz King and Bismo “Traveling” Beerbelly… our “Jake & Elwood”! Fritz & Bismo have been friends and “Brothers from another mother” for over 35 years now. We first donned the Blues Brothers Suits for fun in 1981, and were singing and dancing (and even harping a little) by the time we took our first trip to Chicago in the summer of 1982… driving our first Bluesmobile replica.

Fritz took a brief sabbatical from the blues when he joined the Marine Corps in 1987, but we got back to the music soon enough after he retired… 20 years later! We’re damned proud of our Gunny Sergeant. Bismo stayed an active fan of the blues, and finally got back to blowing the harp again in the late ‘aughts. He also got back to building a couple of new Bluesmobile replicas (one from each Blues Brothers film)… a ‘90 Crown Vic, and finally another ‘74 Dodge Monaco.

For several years now we’ve packed up our ’74 Dodge, thrown on our Suits and driven down to our home-away-from-home, our inspiration… Clarksdale MS, where we’ve been blessed to be “adopted” as Clarksdale’s own Blues Brothers as well! We’ve put together “B-Movie Blues South”, an amazing line-up of Delta musicians, and perform as part of the annual Juke Joint Festival there in April.
In concert we open with a full Blues Brothers tribute set. We’ll drive up in one of our two Bluesmobiles, which can be parked right in front of your venue for photo ops if that works for you. Our Blues Brothers set (usually about 75 minutes) features songs familiar to all Blues Brothers fans… high energy uptempo blues and some bluesy rock, mixed with some slow burning blues and a few fun surprises. Then for later sets we’ll “dress down” a bit and play more traditional blues (Chicago and Delta sounds), rock, and even some oldies for fun. We may on occasion have guests to sit in with us on later sets as well to add to the mix.

Our backing band may vary from time to time but our primary band is the fantastic Cold Shot from western Massachusetts: Vinnie Pagano, Jeff Fortier and Zach Pine! These gentlemen keep the house rocking from start to finish, and make us sound Good! On other occasions as scheduling demands we’ll also play with The Rick Harrington Band from Connecticut: Rick Harrington, Scott Hopkins and Ned Peabody, and these master bluesmen humble us for sure! We’ve also been blessed with some other amazing talent on many occasions, such as the funkmaster Bobby Roy on guitar, our dear friend LaLa Craig on keys all the way from Darling, Mississippi, Ephraim Lowell on the skins, and then there was that time with the oh-so-semi-anonymous “Doctor Hepcat”… you never know who else may join us!

Gerry Moss
Jan 30 @ 9:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Gerry Moss was born in Massachusetts in 1950 to an Air Force father. He was the oldest of 8 children.

As a musician, Gerry has lived and worked in Europe, New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston, and Hardy, Arkansas.

He started to play guitar wile in England at the age of six. He watched an entertainer playing a guitar and he was hooked. He instantly knew he wanted a guitar.

Gerry attended a private high school where he began to write music. He wrote some rock tunes for a high school show that were well accepted. He began to perform in talent shows and began to attract attention as a performer.

In addition to guitar, Gerry is accomplished on Banjo, mandolin, bass Guitar, dobro Guitar and keyboards.

He is also a capable producer and engineer. As an example, a CD he produced and engineered called “Maiden Voyage” for The Michael Gray Band can be listened to in the “Music” page of this site.

Gerry has enjoyed teaching music and how to perform to young people with a patience and enthusiasm that has inspired them to meet their full potential.

Gerry can perform and headline either as a solo artist accompanying himself on guitar or with his band, MOSSMAN.

MOSSMAN performs as a 3 or 4 piece group. Each member of MOSSMAN contributes enormous skill and experience. Drummer John Ware was a member of the bands for Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and Michael Nesmith. MOSSMAN performs with abandon, yet is tight. Their performances are liberated but not reckless. You may view the MOSSMAN videos on this site (“Red Rooster” & “You Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover”). These videos will say more about MOSSMAN than words can tell.

Gerry also performs with bands named Red Barn Ramblers and Reckless Red.

Gerry’s first love is the blues. Much of his music reflects this. However, on the “Music” page of this site you can listen to Gerry performing other genre’s also as he performs solo on acoustic guitar. (See Nickels ‘n Dimes).

One of Gerry’s previous bands, “the Famous Unknowns,” was the house band at B.B. King’s Blues Club in Memphis, TN for over 2 years. A subsequent band, “Gerry Moss And The Drive” was also a regular at B.B. King’s.

At one time, due to his popularity and demand, Gerry performed up and down Beale Street headlining as a single or with a bad so often and at so many venues and events, he was referred to as “The Iron Man Of Beale Street.”

As a solo artist, Gerry has been the opening act for Leon Russell (3 times), Richie Havens (twice), Mose Allison, and Robby Krieger (guitarist for the Doors). Terry has been the band leader for David Lynn Jones’ band. He was also the bass guitar player for Lloyd Price (Personality, stagger Lee, Lawdy Miss Claudy).

Gerry has performed in shows with R&B and blues artists such as Bobby “Blue” Bland, Albert Collins, Rufus Thomas, Edgar Winter, Joe Walsh, Steve Winwood, Johnny Rivers, Mose Allison, Albert King, and Buddy Guy.

Gerry has also performed with C&W artists such as Merle Haggard, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Charlie Pride, Hank Williams, JR., and Clint Black’s band.

*******************************

Gerry Moss performed at Ronald Reagan’s second inauguration as a member of the Johnny Lee and the Urban Cowboy Band. Jerry Lee Lewis and Kool And The Gang were also on the bill. This is a photo of him at the inauguration with a friend. Nice threads, Gerry. Baby blue tux, white shoes. Crazy!

Celebrating milestones is satisfying, but the constant change that brings new experiences is what keeps things passionate. His band’s roster, his tone, even his songwriting style has matured since his debut double record in 2010. This is evidenced by his second LP, Old City Blues.
