Their music conveys both their desire to escape the suburban complacency they see all around them and their belief that everyone should be able to proclaim themselves as the type of person that they believe themselves to be. The members of SPR are your teacher, your banker, your coach, your ice-cream-maker, and your (whatever the hell James does), but they have proclaimed themselves ‘rockstars’ because they are at their happiest when they are playing energetic rock and roll for awesome people.</p> </div></div></div> Wed, 09 May 2012 02:04:22 +0000 TheSelfProclaimedRockstars 46393 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org Miller's English http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46396 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">www.millersenglish.com</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Miller’s English delivers, cranked up or pared down, bending genre norms and finding receptive ears everywhere with their engaging musical repertoire. This Boston band creates music that hits the listener regardless of volume and reflects the group’s history, speaking to the members’ musicianship and superb songwriting abilities.</p> <p>Miller’s English’s late 2010 formation fused many different sounds and musical styles. Guitarist Rob Meunier had an arsenal of lively acoustic jams from years of writing that found new meaning with the addition of vocalist Leigh Meunier’s lyrics. With a set of rousing, performance-ready acoustic melodies, the brother-sister duo began its search for a rhythm section. Bassist Tyler Wooley-Brown and drummer Greg Goodwin rounded out the sound with brooding low end and dynamic grooves, adding new depth and dimension to a repertoire that constantly evolves with the band members themselves.</p> <p>Having an extensive set of musical influences, Miller’s English produces and performs songs that span several genres, including blues rock, folk, reggae, and funk. They intertwine improvised jams and impressive melodies with a confidence that ultimately influences their performances and gains them praise from audiences.</p> <p>Always providing energetic live shows, Miller’s English frequents Boston area venues and has plans to add some out-of-town shows and festivals to the spring and summer schedule. Miller’s English’s anticipated debut EP is set for release this spring and will feature five crowd favorites.</p> </div></div></div> Fri, 04 May 2012 19:41:58 +0000 Miller's English 46396 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org The Elmo Kickers http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46397 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>A band created for the purposes of Somerville Porchfest.</p> </div></div></div> Tue, 01 May 2012 21:25:42 +0000 jamescressey 46397 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org I Thought They Were Models? http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46382 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Formerly known as "These Guys Are Models?" and before that known as "These Guys Are Definitely Models!" (consisting of a completely different line-up of members who were actually good looking), the current incarnation known as "I Thought They Were Models?" blends rock music with foolish humor, and a pinch of pop culture sprinkled on top. At any point point during the show you may hear anything from the ITTWM self-titled anthem, to a Muppet's rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," and if you're lucky enough you may even see a man who has no business tap-dancing...tap-dancing. The band's mission is to create a fun environment for everyone at the show, and hopefully you'll have a good time, too. If you happen to make it to the show, don't be afraid to challenge any member of the band to a dance-off, push up contest, arm-wrestling contest, or rocks-papers-scissors at any point during the performance, because, you will win.</p> </div></div></div> Fri, 27 Apr 2012 02:44:29 +0000 jmcarroll1 46382 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org OFM http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46376 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>For porchfest: A limited selection of mostly old jazz standards on tenor sax with piano.</p> </div></div></div> Tue, 17 Apr 2012 15:13:21 +0000 bill_allen 46376 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org Comanchero http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46363 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">http://www.comancheromusic.com</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Since 2003, Comanchero has crafted an Americana sound that combines old traditions with new, Country with Rock, Bluegrass with Blues, Honky Tonk with Funk, and Roots with Rockabilly. While unique in their own sound, there is something strikingly familiar in Comanchero’s songs that weave influences ranging from Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, Little Feat, to today’s contemporaries such as CAKE, Wilco, and Mumford &amp; Sons.</p> <p>Soulful and edgy, heartbreaking and heart making, Comanchero’s third release, “The Undeserved” will stay in your ears for a long time to come. Boston’s Americana Jam Band takes us through our human landscape of hope and despair, the good times and our lost ways.</p> <p>This band has deservedly found its way. Comanchero sings us to where we’ve been and where we need to go. Listen to the driving drums and true voice of Greg Moon. Hear the unique licks of his brother, lead guitarist, Bob. And be taken by the sound and voice of rhythm guitar front man, Sam Margolis, all strongly supported by bassist Andrew Kramer and percussionist Jim Levin.</p> <p>You’ll hear how they know there’s something in our heartache, when we lose faith in our national leaders, and when personal love breaks down. When Comanchero sings, “Oh, you can’t go home again”, it’s the home in their music you’ll find, their house you’ll want to find yourself in, room by room, track by track.</p> <p>Having played hundreds of shows together, Comanchero travels far and wide from Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach, FL to the Great Falls Hot Air Balloon Festival in Auburn, ME. From clubs, to theaters, to pavilions, to colleges &amp; universities, the band continues to push the boundaries of their live performances and consistently shares the stage with nationally touring artists such as ZZ Top, Southern Culture on the Skids, Cowboy Mouth, Passion Pit, The Mother Truckers, The Code Talkers, The David Wax Museum, and Girls, Guns, and Glory.</p> <p>The stage energy, combined with carefully crafted songs and precise execution distinguish Comanchero as one of the rising Americana &amp; jam-influenced bands on the East Coast. The band’s sound is edgy, tangible, eclectic, and totally danceable. As Jane Lindholm, Director and Associate Producer at National Public Radio observed: "Alt-Country Folk Rock melodies combine with great hooks and catchy lyrics to create a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience."</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-upload field-type-file field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><table class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><span class="file"><img class="file-icon" alt="Audio icon" title="audio/mpeg" src="/modules/file/icons/audio-x-generic.png" /> <a href="http://somervilleartscouncil.org/sacfiles/03%20One%20Foot%20In%20The%20Grave.mp3" type="audio/mpeg; length=6688513" title="03 One Foot In The Grave.mp3">One Foot In The Grave.mp3</a></span></td><td>6.38 MB</td> </tr> <tr class="even"><td><span class="file"><img class="file-icon" alt="Audio icon" title="audio/mpeg" src="/modules/file/icons/audio-x-generic.png" /> <a href="http://somervilleartscouncil.org/sacfiles/08%20Cold%20%26%20Lonely%20Night.mp3" type="audio/mpeg; length=6593426" title="08 Cold &amp;amp; Lonely Night.mp3">Cold &amp; Lonely Night.mp3</a></span></td><td>6.29 MB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div></div></div> Thu, 22 Mar 2012 17:20:09 +0000 Comanchero 46363 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org
