Upcoming Shows


News flash! See our guitar player in his incarnation as a Boston Jazz Voices baritone, appear on two episodes of the 4th season of the PBS TV program "Sing That Thing" (Premiere - we're at 10m15s and Episode 7 )!

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018; 1:30 to 2:15 PM
Salem Arts Festival
Derby Square, Downtown Salem, MA
We're playing for the Salem Arts Festival, held in historic downtown Salem. Come down and see the paintings, hear the music, taste the food and celebrate late Spring outdoors at Derby Square. Experience the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd! Huzzah!

Our next gig is:
Sunday, June 24th, 2018; 2 to 3 PM
Newton Free Library
330 Homer St, Newton, MA
We're delighted to be playing at the Newton Free Library, home to many of our friends (Newton, that is, not the library per se). This being Newton, we can expect a highly erudite and educated audience - writers, recently ordained rabbis, not so recently ordained rabbis, experts on early New Orleans cornet players, doctors, lawyers, former gubernatorial candidates, that sort of thing.

And what will all these movers and shakers be doing at 2 PM, Sunday, June 24th? Moving and shaking to the infectious groove of Boston's favorite jug band! Come down for an entertaining and edifying afternoon!

Saturday, July 7th, 2018; Our set 12-2PM (Porchfest til 6)
Jamaica Plain Porchfest 2018
Aldworth St, Jamaica Plain, MA
Our friend Tom has graciously invited us to perform on his porch on folkloric Aldworth St, located near the monument at the south end of Centre St. In years past there have been chairs and livingroom furniture out on the sidewalk under the trees for the comfort of the listening audience.

JP Porchfest, now going into its 5th year, is a vibrant music and arts festival that takes place on porches (and patios, stoops, driveways, church/community center yards…) all over the neighborhood. A huge audience roams all corners of the neighborhood, taking in the wonderful diversity of performances.

Saturday, July 14th, 2018; 7:30 to 8:30 PM
Thoreau Society Annual Gathering
First Parish In Concord
20 Lexington Rd, Concord, MA
Speaking of erudition, it will be on display in all its finery at the Annual Gathering of the Thoreau Society. While we can't promise to rise to the exalted intellectual level of the rest of the proceedings, we shall endeavor to shed light on a hitherto little-known corner of Thoreau scholarship; to wit, the relationship between Henry David Thoreau, Chuck Barry, and the transcendentalist school of rock and roll guitar. 1 It promises to be a revelatory performance!
1. We are preparing a small monograph on the subject.
