It's tradition for the Baker Thomas Band and Ryan Fitzsimmons to celebrate the spookiest of holidays at the Lizard annually. This year Danielle Miraglia and her band the Glory Junkies joins will join us - wear a costume and get your Halloween on!
Beginning on stage at TOAD in Cambridge, MA during a weekly residency in March of 2009, Baker Thomas Band has always been an eclectic collection of musicians and good friends getting together to make great music and have a blast. With anywhere from 7 to 10 and even more musicians on stage, the BTB is a wrecking ball of good times and great tunes.
Vocal hooks and rock and roll lyrics are backed by one of the sickest bands you'll hear. Horns, violin, and mandolin soar over the top, dueling guitars fill up the middle and the bottom is held down by rock solid bass and a thunderous kick drum. The clever and catchy hit songs cover the spectrum of classic rock, funk and groove, with hints of bluegrass and jam band.... so many influences... one big sound.
When you think of us, think of "The Band" We don't sound like The Band, but we are a rolling party. We're loose enough to be spontaneous and fun but we're pros, seasoned musicians and peers who have been crossing paths and sharing stages in the cities of Boston, Cambridge and Somerville for quite sometime.
Baker Thomas Band is dangerous and deadly fun. We have The Secret Weapon, The Legend, The Professor, The Ambassador, The Dancer, The Gator, Big Papa, The Ship's Captain and often more! We are a band of characters for sure!
The BTB has our core players, but sit-in performers is the norm on any given night, for we have one of the best bands in town, lightning quick on the uptake and the confidence to ride the line.
Ryan Fitzsimmons has steadily built a reputation as one of the Northeast's most compelling songwriters.
Over the past 10 years Ryan has woven his way throughout New England, creating a strong presence in a number of the local music scenes. While living in Providence RI, the Providence Phoenix awarded him the title of Best Male Vocalist. Ryan was also the founder of the AS220 Sunday Songwriters Series which continues to this day. Upon relocating to the Boston area Ryan has become a fixture in the Americana scene with regular appearances at venerable Cambridge venues such as Club Passim, the Lizard Lounge and Toad.
