Wow! What a cool show tonight. The Dennis Brennan Band returns to The Lizard Lounge performing two sets of classic Brennan featuring songs from their latest recording Into This World and well curated covers. Joining them tonight will be bassist, songwriter, arranger and producer Zachariah Hickman (Josh Ritter) and multi instrumentalist, singer songwriter Charlie Rose (Elephant Revival). Both men are wildly creative so it's anyone's guess as to what they have in store!
Zachariah Hickman is a double bassist, multi-instrumentalist and producer based out of Boston, MA. Originally from Lynchburg, VA, he received his formal training in jazz performance and composition from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. For most of his adult life he has toured with singer-songwriter Josh Ritter, traveling all over the world and recording 7 full-length albums.
Emerging as a songwriter and solo artist with his debut album, Stowaways, Charlie Rose already has a long list of credits as a multi-instrumentalist and studio musician. He has worked with many well known artists, including his current band Elephant Revival plus Aoife ODonovan, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Johnny Irion, Jonathan Edwards, Jocie Adams, Josh Ritter, and Rose Cousins.
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 9:30 (8:30 doors). Ticket price may vary from week to week.
