the pioneers

sunday nights

The Pioneers got their start at Terra Blues as the legendary backup group that supported Moe Holmes, former alto and tenor voice of the Holmes Brothers. Created in the early 1990's, the band is comprised of rotating talented musicians. After Moe's death in 2008 the current group of Jr Mack, Barry Harrison, Brian Killen & Pat Firch carry on in his footsteps.


misty blues trio

october 3, 2014 - 7 pm

Gina Coleman, lead singer and founder of the band Misty Blues began her blues career as a gospel and folk rock singer. After landing a role in the 1999 Williamstown Theatre Festival production of A Raisin In The Sun, she received overwhelmingly positive criticism for her voice and was thus inspired to sing classical blues. Coleman recruited her former bandmates guitarist Jason Webster and bassist Bill Patriquin of the band Cole-Connection, as well as musicians Jeff Dudziak, Benny Kohn, and Kali Baba McConnell to form Misty Blues. Together, the band pays homage to blues music of the 20's, 30's, and 40's while maintaining their roots in gospel and folk rock, creating a unique blues-fusion sound.

mary alouette & the djams

october 8th, 2014  - 7 pm

By far the most intriguing show amidst the recent swell of gypsy-jazz ensembles, the operatically trained vocalist has molded that hot house sound into an entirely new form. Haunting melodies, genre bending, & irrepressible gypsy rhythms make Mary Alouette & the Djams a trend worth following.

hazmat modine

october 11TH cancelled due to illness

october 25, 2014 - 7 PM

With dueling harmonicas, a scintillating sousaphone, and the mysterious sheng (the ancient Chinese mouth organ), the band runs the gamut of genres and instrumentation. Most of what they play are originals, but keep an ear out for cover versions of "Slim Gaillard, Jimmy Rogers, Jaybird Coleman, and Irving Berlin." Lead Wade Schuman will send the audience home humming & stomping after the romping, dynamic and passionately unique experience that is Hazmat Modine.

bobby radcliff & steve guyger

Growing up in Maryland, Bobby Radcliff began his guitar education with classical guitar lessons at the age of 12. Following his initiation into the music world, Radcliff moved to New York City in 1977 where Black Top records took a liking to his “strengths as a soloist, as well as a funky rhythm guitarist”. (WFLR-FM) Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe more than a dozen times Radcliff always leaves audiences stunned with “his jaw-dropping skills as a guitarist.” (Blues Review)

www.bobbyradcliff.com

Claiming the harmonica ads his instrument of choice, Steve Guyger has been studying the blues since his teens. Mastering the intense grittiness of Chicago-style harp playing landed Guyger one of his best gigs in 1980; a call from Jimmy Rogers. Blues Access magazine claims, "All the years...of touring with the legendary Jimmy Rogers has made Steve Guyger one of the greatest blues harp men in the world." Guyger's performances are enhanced by his fine clear voice and his preservation of the harp tradition with a unique and refreshing twist!
