Mike Rau and Dennis Fancher are long time stalwarts on the CT music scene.

He is a literal human jukebox of material and along with Dennis' embellishments on lead guitar, makes for a fun and exciting show. You never know what they might play!

Atlas Gray Friday, June 9, 2017 9 PM $10

Rumor has it that Sir Tembo (headmaster of a school for wayward boys) took four of his
most troubled enrollees on a safari to the Serengeti….a well meaning attempt to further
their worldly awareness.
Soon after their arrival, and in the depths of late night darkness, the boys deceptively
abandoned the tutorial voyage and scurried out of camp in pursuit of their own cultural
expedition. Haplessly, a few hours into the next morning’s light they were tragically
abducted by native tribesman, caged in the center of a remote village and left with little
to ponder less their eventual fate.
In no more than a week’s time, our captives frightfully witnessed a merciless midnight
raid on the village by a band of rogue elephants. Dubbed by the tribe’s elders as “The
Grays” and their leader as “Atlas” (a bull beyond massive proportions) the pachydermic
gang raged havoc and destruction beyond imaginable description. The boys
additionally discovered the attack was somewhat common and the tribe, obviously, had
yet to devise the means to avert their repetitive tormentors.
Quick minded, the boys drew from the age old adage that “music calms the most
savage of beasts” and devised an ingenious scheme that would hopefully provide a
mutually beneficial resolve. Incorporating hollowed logs and materials stripped from
their penal stockade, they hastily fashioned crude percussive and string instruments,
composed a repertoire of mesmerizing melodies with intertwined pulsating rhythms……
and then sat in wait.
Upon the next assault, the boys immediately began to perform with unbridled passion
and conviction. Low and behold, the ingenious plan proved to be astonishingly
effective….the bull became joyously hypnotized and the herd followed suit. The plunder
became a party and sublime harmony prevailed.
Above the most imaginable expectation, the elders were so gratefully impressed they
not only released their captives, but also pulled bartered resources to provide the lads’
safe passage back to the US.
Well, you can easily imagine where the continuation of this fable leads us. Being
wayward, devilish and in lieu of desiring conservative careers, the boys (Alex, Adam,
Andy and Stoltz) were surrealistically convinced. Music was undeniably their salvation
and taking this magical band to the street was nothing short of inevitable destiny.
So what to call the new adventure?
The unanimous decision….ATLAS GRAY.

About Artist
Kerri Powers Tuesday, June 13, 2017 7 PM FREE SHOW

“Powers is something of an anomaly.  She’s like the music scene’s version of the protagonist in the film, “The Natural,” having spent the “prime of her career” out of the spotlight -- in her case, tending to her family -- only to return from absolutely nowhere to wow and amaze.  Where Robert Redford made all the fans sit up and cheer with mammoth home runs, Kerri Powers is going to make people listening to this album do the exact same thing with exceptional song writing and equally exceptional delivery.” -- Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise

 

Kerri Powers was destined to be a musician from the start. While most kids her age spent their childhoods following frivolous pursuits, she spent hers reading, painting, writing stories, learning guitar and composing her first songs at the tender age of nine. By her own admission, she was a shy child, but her creative pursuits gave her an appreciation of the larger world around her. Those instincts seemed to have been bred naturally, given that there was undeniable talent embedded in her genes. Bing Crosby was a distant relative on her father’s side, while her mother’s relatives were said to be descended from author Herman Melville. Notably too, Powers’ paternal grandmother made her living by playing piano and providing musical accompaniment for silent films, making her a show business standby back in the day.

 

Not surprisingly then, Powers was encouraged to pursue her own creative ambitions while still in adolescence. Her mother, a talented visual artist in her own right, owned an extensive record collection, which gave Kerri her initial exposure to irrefutable icons like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and John Prine. “I would sit in a wicker rocking chair by the record player and sing along to the songs,” she recalls. “I remember hearing John Prine’s “Hello in There” for the first time and feeling that something magical was happening. It was a momentary yet memorable trip to a sad but hopeful place of lonely old faces.”

 

Powers started playing professionally in local coffeehouses throughout her native New England, and went on to release several well-received albums in the new millennium, culminating in Faith in the Shadows in 2009. Two of her songs were later featured on the Fox series “Rescue Me” starring Denis Leary. After taking time off to get married and raise her young son she returned to performing, counting among her credits the Boston Folk Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival, among other prestigious gatherings. She’s also toured Europe while opening for Canadian singer/songwriter Fred Eaglesmith in The Netherlands, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.

An Evening with Jake Manzi Saturday, June 17, 2017 9 PM FREE SHOW

It's not time to make a change / Just sit down, take it slowly
You're still young, that's your fault / There's so much you have to go through

 

 

Sound advice…but this isn’t really something that can wait.

 

Jake Manzi has stories to tell. They are well-crafted realizations of his current place in the world, where he wants to go, who he wants to take with him.

 

The stories are wrapped up in a sound that remembers Jackson Browne’s “Late for the Sky” as much as it references the modern sound of Bahamas’ “Bahamas is Afie.”

 

Manzi’s guitar, his voice, and his need to tell these stories, are his birthright.

 

His father was on MTV once, playing in a band. His cousin Angelo plays the ukulele. His brothers can sing and play, just like his aunts and uncles did before them. They all play still, the whole lot of them, at informal (but mandatory) Sunday dinners where they break out new songs, old songs, and songs from the Old World.

 

It is from this setting that Manzi has emerged with his guitar and a passion for delving below the surface of things, where the real stories are told.

 

Manzi’s debut is called “Singing to the Wall.”

 

These are his stories.

 

“At least some of them,” says Manzi. “This is a blueprint, a sample of where I want to go with my music.”

 

The recording features guitarist Caleb Rosazza, bassist Jacob Rosazza, and drummer Jake Edwards. Just below the surface you will hear his cousin’s ukulele, his father’s voice, and the breadth and depth of his heritage.

 

 

- Donnie Moorhouse, The Republican

Primate Fiasco Saturday, June 24, 2017 10 PM $8

The Primate Fiasco uses instruments that are loud without electricity, giving them the opportunity to attack at any moment, in any location, with or without permission. No one is safe, not even an elevator or city bus. If The Primate Fiasco sees a dull moment somewhere, they will pop out of the nearest sewer drain or trash can to lead an irresistible dance party.

On stage, the sound is different. This band has pioneered what is possible with mind­bending harmonies of Accordion and sax, funky pockets of a hyperactive Sousaphone player and banjo that thinks it’s a Fender Strat. Add lyrics that grab hold of even the most inattentive audience and beats that channel surf like a remote that’s been sat on. The music is always high energy and extremely imaginative. Most importantly, this is fun. People smile from the first beat to the last smoldering ash of what was previously a dance floor.

Primate Fiasco

10 PM

To a deaf person, they look like a New Orleans dixieland street band. To a blind person, they sound like a rave DJ mashing-up house beats with 60?s folk lyrics. To the police, it’s a busy day on the sidewalk
