The People’s Party, a band hailing from Boston, MA, is an eclectic mix of rock, funk, hip hop, jazz, and everything in between, dedicated to spreading love and unity in the celebration of life. The original sound borrows from a wide variety of genres. With rich vocal harmonies reminiscent of Motown and The Beatles, a thick, groove-filled rhythm section that can move from hip hop to acid jazz to rock with ease, infectious songwriting and lyricism, which varies from Paul Simon-esque to a Tribe Called Quest and beyond, a horn section along the order of Tower of Power and The Meters, and jams similar to Phish and The Grateful Dead, the music takes the audience on a wild musical ride.

Current lineup includes Aaron Belyea (vocals, guitar), Scott Farrell (guitar, bass, vocals), Andy Kearney (keyboards, vocals), Kurt Overberg (drums) and Neil Overberg (guitar, bass). Most of which are recovering musicians who got tired of living in vans.

Due earlier arrangement, The Odells will be playing 2 - 4pm. We'll apologize by having homemade lemonade available.
