The Dennis Brennan Band featuring Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, 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. Tonight features the award winning singer songwriter with a rock'n'roll swagger who absolutely floored everyone here the last time she played Abbie Barrett!
The Dennis Brennan Band was nominated for Best Ongoing Residency at the Lizard at last years Boston Music Awards and it's easy to see why. 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 brand new CD INTO THIS WORLD released earlier this month. As the band did last season, special guests open the second set each week with a short set.
TONIGHT'S GUEST: ABBIE BARRETT
2015 BOSTON MUSIC AWARD WINNER FOR BEST SONGWRITER
BY PAUL ROBICHEAU ON AUGUST 01, 2016
That Shame showcases her in full rock mode, sometimes evoking the tone and phrasing of the Pretenders Chrissie Hynde...[Her] craftsmanship extends from the gorgeous vocals of As I Wanted You and the soaring crescendos of Falling to the catchy 80s-flavored punch of Take It in Stride.
THE BOSTON HERALD
BY JED GOTTLIEB ON DECEMBER 02, 2016
Nominated for female vocalist and singer-songwriter of the year: Yes, Barrett is a woman who sings and writes songs. But she could just as easily have nabbed nominations for album of the year for That Shame, or song of the year for the tough, tight rock tune Take It In Stride. She also should be a contender for best live act.
