M.E.Productions Presents

DAVID BROMBERG QUINTET at the Shalin Liu Performance Center Rockport MA

Friday 8 PM

Shalin Liu-Center
37 Main St, Rockport, Massachusetts 01966

Tickets Available

If “Americana” has come to mean music that resides in the interstices between country, folk, blues, and other genres without belonging to any of them, then Bromberg was Americana eons before the term came into vogue, and no more so than when he was playing with his quintet.

Bromberg is one of the most engaging, indeed mesmerizing, of performers. It’ll be a treat to hear him and his quintet perform their mix of bluegrass, country, R&B, and blues that’s united by Bromberg’s soulful picking and gravelly vocals.

Alchemy~http://www.alchemygloucester.com/Alchemy Gloucester

Permanently Closed

First and foremost, we want to say thank you to each and every person who has stepped foot in Alchemy over the past 12 years. It’s been an awesome, crazy run and you helped make it all possible.

We’re closing on Saturday. For real this time wink emoticon

The way people dine is evolving, and while we have lots of wonderful, loyal guests, Alchemy just isn’t a place most people can eat at multiple times a week, and that’s not our goal.

We want a space where families can dine out regularly with great food, drinks and a fun, casual vibe. So, we’re going to make that. We don’t know exactly how it will look or what the food will be, but we’re going to figure it out; and when we do, we’ll let you know.

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? Saturday, Jan 30, Doors at 7 PM, Concert at 7:30PM

Tickets: $15 non-members/ $10 RNAC members, purchase below!

Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? can time-travel from the woods of Medieval France to a 1930s New Orleans jukejoint. Led by the gender-defying voice of 3rian King, the ensemble delivers their own brand smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse performing in a French cafe.

The soul of the band is rooted in its songs – poetic, inventive, emotionally naked meditations on love, religion, sexuality, and identity in the tradition of songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, and Laura Nyro. The band also loves to reimagine classics from Johnny Cash, Prince, and Joni Mitchell to Irish folk tunes and Appalachian murder ballads.

With Nathan Cohen’s cinematic violin & haunting trumpet, Joe Cardoza’s upright bass, Dennis Monagle’s artful drums, Renee Dupuis warm keys and stellar voice, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? sells out legendary clubs from Club Passim & Oberon in Cambridge, MA to The Duplex in NYC, recently earning the Critic’s Pick in Time Out New York.

Their original song “Cold Rain” was recently covered by New Orleans Soul Queen, Irma Thomas, on her Grammy-nominated CD “Simply Grand,” with the track earning high praise in Rolling Stone, USA Today & The VIllage Voice.

The latest album by What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, “Little Bit Of Blue” was recently launched with two sold-out CD-release parties in Boston & NYC, with the songs accompanied by circus performers, dancers, and animation by award-winning filmmaker, Ruth Lingford.

ABOUT SHIR DAVID:
Shir David plays powerful, soulful music rooted in Jewish tradition infused with rhythms of Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.

With the spiritual power of ancient prayer, singer/guitar player David Wesson adds a modern edge to traditional songs and delivers a dynamic set of sophisticated and moving original pieces.

Gloucester resident and classically trained violinist, Joe Kessler, of the renowned Klezmer group Klezwoods, adds the fervor and flavor of many cultures with his signature blue violin.

Jake Pardee of Rockport will be on bass holding down exquisite grooves, solid, deep, and in the pocket.

On percussion is Beverly resident, Shira Moss, bringing the rich and varied resonant tones of the congas to the mix.

CHELSEA BERRY

chelsea-berry-410

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore. A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s commanding stage presence and energetic rock/folk/pop sound has begun bringing her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Along with her solo shows, Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Jonathan Edwards, Jon Butcher, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, Marshall Crenshaw, Patty Larkin, and many others. Over her career, Berry has released four full length records (and one EP), including her most recent–2014’s acclaimed Remedy.

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” –Livingston Taylor
