Throughout Berlin's long and revered career he has taken bands under wing, pushed the spotlight away from himself and crusaded to be Boston's number one rock'n'roll supporter and innovator. Tonight is just another page in that saga. 4 bands all putting their own spin on rock that is passion driven and smart - just like Berlin himself
The Nickel & Dime Band is as Jamaica Plain, MA a band as you can be (sort of - 6 of them live and work here. Jane lives in the Poconos). 7 years ago Berlin bumped into McLean at the Brendan Behan Pub (one short step from where they rehearse). 3 months later they co-opted the name after their (at-the-time) ferocious live karaoke band (Berlin figured: If they could play 300+ cover songs, they could easily learn some of his.) A kickass, killer, funny, danceable, deep (lyrically) and total pro buncha rock n roll idiots. Seven in all. 2 guitars, bass, keys, kit, trombone, 4 vox. Jane Mangini (principle keybordist with the Trans-Siberean Orchestra when not with us), Ricky McLean, Rob Manachio, Chris Antonowtch, Sam Dudley (Berlin's nephew) and Dave Goodchild. The band is releasing their brand new, 4th record, 10 songs and titled THE COURAGE OF THE LONELY.
Harry and The Hot Flashes is a good ol' rock'n'roill band. Period.
Field Day "Hints at some lost collaboration between
Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando. Maybe this is a roundabout way of saying
Field Day has a gift for modern rock melodies." - Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald
Seriously raucous barroom rock that stings with lean power chords and open-hearted lyrics. - James Reed, The Boston Globe
A band to watch in 2015. - Steve Morse
The Motivated Sequence wants to be the lightning in your heart & the thunder in your bones. TMS, a six piece Indie-Pop group based primarily out of Boston, connect with their listeners lyrically and sonically with arrangements that include lush strings, sparkling guitars, and powerful drums.
