The Dennis Brennan Band returns to the carpets of the Lizard Lounge tonight bringing what they bring every week; a boatload of terrific songs and a mountain of musical muscle. Be sure to catch special guest Ali McGuirk in the middle!

Tonight continues the Spring season of Wednesday nights at The Lizard Lounge with the Dennis Brennan Band and the usual cast of incredible musicians.  Look for frequent themes woven into their sets such as cities; Memphis, New Orleans, Los Angeles... or a style, Country, Knucklehead Rock, Garage...or a particular songwriter/s, Dan Penn, Goffin/King, Arthur Alexander, Ray Davies, Doug Sahm. In addition the band will mine much of the back catalog mixed in with the new material from the upcoming album later in 2016. As the band did last season, special guests open the second set each week with a short set.

Tonights guest: ALI McGUIRK
"A vocal powerhouse and smart songwriter... also has some Motown and island rhythms to her sound. But her stuff digs down under Top 40 to find ragged rock grooves and jazz dub beats."
- Jed Gottlieb, The Boston Herald

"Ali brings to the stage a refreshing comfort and grace uncommon in Boston. Its as though she and the stage are old friends who share intimate jokes."
- K. Winslow Smith, Grouptones

"One of the rising stars on the local scene... performing a set of tunes that are uniquely hers - soul drenched, jazz inspired, and freely delivered with an ease that belies her young age."
- Billy Beard, Session Americana & The Dennis Brennan Band




MORE ON DENNIS BRENNAN.... To the uninitiated, Brennan could be considered Boston's own Leonard Cohen or Elvis Costello. His songwriting is respected by critics and musicians alike. Not only adept with the pen, Dennis Brennan is a highly accomplished performer and is known for his ability to span musical genres, styles, and era's with ease. His emotive and passionate voice is comfortable tackling classic country and R& B as well classic jazz, rock and blues. But it's really Brennan's originals that have set him apart. The Chicago Sun Times described him as "A rootsy, hard-edged rocker with the barroom soul of the pre-Woodstock Graham Parker and the unsparing insight of a working class poet." It's a fitting description if ever there was one. To the initiated faithful who attend every show, Dennis and his band (which includes guitarists Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, Lyle Brewer, and Ian Kennedy on any given night along with the rhythm section of Billy Beard and Richard Gates) have etched so many indelible magical moments on the local collective conscious that they return each week to see what will happen next. . Do not miss your chance to see him... every Wednesday night right in your own back yard. The Dennis Brennan Band performs two sets every Wednesday night starting at 9:15 (8:30 doors). Ticket price may vary from week to week.
