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. Tonight features singer songwriter David Johnston who Radio Bostons Anthony Brooks has noted,
"More than one music writer around town have referred to Johnston as one of Bostons best kept secrets of the local music scene..."    

Tonight continues the fall / winter 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:  DAVID JOHNSTON
... is a songwriter, bandleader, and street musician based in Cambridge, MA. As veteran Boston Globe reviewer Steve Morse has noted, Johnston's long-running residency (2003-2007) at Union Square's former Tir Na Nogthe current Bull McCabes (where Johnston also played from 2008-2012)would draw the best local musicians to play his gigs luring such Boston all-stars as [Duke] Levine and bassist Marty Ballou (who are both in [J. Geils' frontman Peter] Wolfs touring band), guitarists Chris Rival Tim Gearan, Steve Sadler, and Steve Mayone, drummer John Sands (who tours with Aimee Mann) and bassist Richard Gates, who has played with Suzanne Vega. In Morses words, these heavy hitters mesh with Johnstons loose but highly unique mix of swampy delta blues, subtle jazz, Dylan-steeped folk, and far-out psychedelia.

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.
