8:30 doors / 9:00 show
Boston favorites via Western Mass - Rusty Belle - return to the familiar digs of the Lizard Lounge for a month of Tuesdays featuring the bands junkyard folk and a special guest each week.
Rusty Belle has a curious habit of coaxing very different, even huge sounds out of a relatively small stable of acoustic instruments. Some tunes offer harmonies reminiscent of '60s folk, others country blues, and still others a plaintive, swinging melancholy.
Matt Lorenz, Kate Lorenz and Zak Trojano harmonize with intuitive strength while laying down a percussive layer of junk drums, classical and electric guitars and an odd array of melodic instruments. Expect to hear anything from a whiskey lullaby or a tiny tango to a rock anthem or a smoky blues.
Poignant, honest lyrics with a rustic, dusty feel. Rusty Belle is unpredictable, original and raw. It is a convergence of styles. Not a knew genre, but a fresh approach.
"This band can give you attitude, or be a ray of sunshine to your ears needs...songs include a magnificent fusion of genres from country to rock and blues, to 80's pop, creating a smoothie of liquid gold." (Culture Fly UK)
"I can't stop listening to it. Each time through I say, okay, that's my favorite song ... and then next time I say it for a completely different-sounding song ... and the next time for yet another. Etc. This is a very strong recording." (VinScelsa, WFUV and Sirius FM)
Named "Residency King of the Hub" and said to be "just too talented to remain a local hero," by The Boston Globe; Tim Gearan, the Boston based singer-songwriter was awarded Boston Music Award's Best Ongoing Residency in 2012, as well as the first Gibson Guitar sponsored Unsung Hero Award at the BMA's in 2004.
Known for his guttural voice, powerful song writing and masterful guitar playing, Tim Gearan was raised in New York, yet is lovingly claimed by the legendary Boston music community, where he has been playing music for over 20 years.
Gearan performed on Grammy nominated, American Blues artist, Susan Tedeschi's 1998 debut album, "Just Won't Burn," and has been regularly sought after by countless musicians for his uninhibited, soulful guitar playing, vocal harmonies and creative soaring abilities.
