The Dennis Brennan Band featuring Duke Levine, Richard Gates and Billy Beard return to the carpets of the Lizard Lounge for another Wednesday night mining the fantastic songs of Dennis Brennan and some choice covers. The interval tonight features the incredible singer songwriter (x-The Story) Jennifer Kimball accompanied by Duke Levine
We live in an era of pop sensations jump-started on YouTube with marriages played out on Twitter. The notion of a straight-up commitment to songs is quaint, the idea of poetic lyrics is overly hopeful, and the strategy of ignoring commercial appeal is foolish. Its an era when deciding to major in English instead of business is the act of a dreamer.
Love live the dreamers, we say. Folks like singer-songwriter (and long-ago English major) Jennifer Kimball.
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.
