Pumpkin Head Ted

Pumpkin Head Ted is a mostly acoustic 5-piece ensemble that defies category. Pumpkin Head Ted brings together an eclectic mix of textures and rhythms that draws on blues, jazz, country, rock, Afro-Latin, among others, without being bound by any these traditions. Pumpkin Head Ted has frequented many haunts and dives along the south coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island for many years. With the release of their 2nd CD, The New Bedford Knockabout, Pumpkin Head Ted hopes to bring their music to a wider audience. Pumpkin Head Ted uses flutes, saxophones, acoustic and electric guitars, bass, hand percussion, drum kit, and killer vocal harmonies to weave a musical tapestry all their own. Several band members are multi-instrumentalists thus Pumpkin Head Ted often can have the feel of 2 or 3 different bands in one without losing their own unique signature sound. This unique sound has developed over a decade and a half of jamming together. Growing in a very organic fashion, the band mates have become one mind during their performances with the ability to take a tune in new directions; exploring, yet keeping the music tight.

Pumpkin Head Ted has performed with many great artists over the years. Most exciting and memorable was performances with Celtic music fiddler extraordinaire Johnny Cunningham. Mr. Cunningham, who has performed with a myriad of great musicians: from the Pogues to Phillip Glass, and has been a guest several times on Prairie Home Companion, stated in an interview that his performances with Pumpkin Head Ted were among his very favorite! Pumpkin Head Ted has also backed up the great singer-song writer J.P. Jones and also has played with local jazz greats Jim Robitaille, Dan Schwartz, Herbie King, and Rick Britto.

Rat Ruckus

Once upon a time there were five musicians who refused to be confined by genres or expectations of their instruments. They began to jam and a mellifluous sound rose and rang through out the land: the ruckus of the rats.

Rat Ruckus has been melting faces with Americana since 2012. Over these past few years, they have grown from four open mic friends and now are seven band members playing across the Northeast.

Band Members:
AJ Salvatore  Violin
Ben Boisclair  Guitar & Vocals
Chris Montecalvo  Drums
Domenic Ruggeri  Keyboard & Vocals
Sequoyah Kennedy  Mandolin, Saxophone, & Vocals
Kevin O'Keefe  Bass
Matt Kennelly  Lead Vocals, Banjo, & Guitar
