Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~ Open Jam with Dan King and friends
I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. I
have to say that I loved hearing The Bandit Kings and Chelsea Berry
over the past few months. They took the place of the jam and gave us
some extraordinary music.
During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there
to let loose with no planned agenda. Thank you to Dan King for hosting
this and to Fred Shrigley
for making it possible.

Thursday -8:00 – close ~ Samantha Farrell:
Samantha Farrell is a sparkling young singer-songwriter based out of Boston, who has been wowing critics and audiences alike, across the country with her unique mixture of jazz and folk-rock influenced  pop.  Described by national music magazine Relix as possessing “prodigious and undulating vocals that are delivered with rare, swinging passion,” and as a “soulful mix of Van Morrison’s country hospitality, Ella Fitzgerald’s jazzy range and Fiona Apple’s modern honesty,” Farrell has been touring the North east in support of her latest two efforts; Her full length album “Luminous” was produced by the late LeRoi Moore, a founding member and saxophone player for the Dave Matthews Band. “Luminous,” a completely independent release, sky rocketed to #7 on the national pop iTunes charts from it’s formidable grass roots support. Her music has been heard on major network television shows such as “Shark” (NBC), Privileged and One Tree Hill (CW).

Friday June 25
Jamie Kent:
Neoteny is Jamie Kent’s debut album and is a true reflection of his personality, song writing, talent, and aspirations. The album takes listeners on a journey through the depths of Kent’s mind, touching on experiences in his life that we all can relate to and introducing us to characters that have emerged through Kent’s playful nature and heartfelt imagination.
“Kent possesses a great voice and a fearlessness to be admired as he drifts through glimpses of blues, jazz, and rock notes that suggest Steely Dan influences without being derivative. This one has true promise.”
Donnie Moorhouse, The Springfield Republican
“A fresh, young 23-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fan base, local artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Jack Johnson and Jamie Cullum, as well as paying tribute to classic greats Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good.”

    …i am amazed at the arts which are alive and well in the city of gloucester…the music scene is alive with a lot of talented musicians…the owners providing the venues are to be applauded for their interest and intent to focus their spotlight on the many local artists…i would like to single one young man out who has not been mentioned on the above headlines but is so deserving of attention as he is creative but sort of new and has to pay his dues…i cheer him because i know him and how devoted he is to the craft of music…he works well with others too…so when you see him out and about or read his blog give Patrick Fitzpatrick a shout out for me…tell him to…just be…stay the path…and so it is…
