Sasha began singing and writing at the tender age of 9 while living in South Boston, MA. Her keen sensitivity to the world around her comes through in beautiful melodies and lyrics that touch those who have the pleasure of hearing her perform. By the time Sasha was 12 years old she had already accumulated a vast amount of original material and was introduced to producer, Ken Hickey, from the Boston band O Positive. Over the following year, she recorded six original tunes on her debut EP, Wednesday Night Sessions, (released in January, 2009). In 2010 Sasha began collaborating with producer Jorge Corante of Los Angeles based Urban Authentic. With Jorge's production and guidance, Sasha earned her first movie song credit in the independent film Adultolescence with her song "Far Away". Sasha has a soulful sound with a witty pop flair. She can be found performing in local Boston area open mics, music festivals and quite frequently the streets of Boston.
Steve Sweeney is a well rounded performer, not only entertaining us on stage but also had a morning radio show The Steve Sweeney Morning Show on 100.7 FM WZLX, in movies like There's Something About Mary, and Me, Myself, and Irene, and on television with David Letterman, Comedy Central, and HBO. His stand up act gives comedic relief to life in New England and its political scene. Performing weekly to sold-out crowds, Steve Sweeney is New England's top comic.
Greg Boggis - A former class clown at the Milford Area High School, Boggis has been a staple of the NH comedy scene since the early 1990s. He's performed thousands of shows through New England and has appeared in numerous commercials, print, Internet ads and films.
I had a gig in far eastern Maine back in the stone age days before cellphones and GPS, when finding a gig meant getting written directions and stopping to use phone booths when lost. An hour into the trip and a blizzard erupted and the conditions turned the trip into a white-knuckle death ride. I stopped and asked a Mainer at a store how far to Calais. She snorted out her cigarette smoke and said, "You ever driven to Calais in a snowstorm? Good luck!" The tiny road turned into a luge run and every half an hour we'd almost get run off the road by a tractor trailer. We pulled into the motor inn two hours late, snow so high that I drove over a curb without seeing it. We ran into the packed room and the manager said "Get on stage now, the crowd is turning." They stood and applauded wildly. I asked them why they were so happy being that we were late and one guy in the back stood up and said: "We wanted to see if you would live to make it to the show."
Carolyn Plummer - She pulls material from the hum-drum, day-to-day monotony of the life of everyman. And she does it well. She leaves audiences shaking heads in agreement with her assessment that the world is indeed a very funny place.
In the early years I did a lot of gigs at various dead animal lodges named after moose, elk, bears, eagles, Italian Americans, French and loyal order of the squirrel. They are usually conveniently located just shy of Canada on a back road that you wouldn't go down in bright sunlight let alone a dark, moonless winter night. But here I was at a lodge to tell my jokes and hone my craft. The best ones are locked from the outside and require a secret knock or a phone call to the inside to get in; smoking is not only allowed but encouraged. After a particularly good show I was by the bar when a gentleman in plaid flannel, suspenders and a John Deere hat sidled up to me and tapped me on the shoulder and said, "You know what? You're one real funny bitch!" I thanked him. I figured it was the right thing to do but I'm still not sure if he meant it as a compliment. I will never forget him or the fact that some of the best gigs are in the least likely of places.
James Creelman is a relatively new addition to the comedy scene, but he is already amassing recognition in New England comedy, becoming a favorite with the most jaded professionals and newest club-goers alike. James'act has been described as being unique and refreshing. His comedy is a mixture of the absurd, the innocent; delivered with a melodic bite. He's truly different from any other comicexcept in his ability to make audiences laugh.
