DEATHHAND (BRYAN MURPHY of the Shills)
Is the frontman of the The Shills, a genre-bending rock outfit that have made a name for themselves by taking complex musical ideas, and making them feel effortlessly infectious. With a sound that can go from driving rock rhythms to lush, lofty sonic soundscapes, versatility is the band's true stock-in-trade. From Queen to Queens of the Stone Age, Yes to Radiohead, Motown to metal, punk to jazz, the band's influences are virtually innumerable. As any of their fans will tell you, the only way to get any sort of handle on what The Shills' music is all about, is to simply check it out yourself.
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.
