Tall Granite
If it can swing, the Tall Granite Big Band will play it! From the classics by Miller, Goodman, Basie, and Ellington to The Beatles and Donovan, the Tall Granite Big Band brings it on in Swing-time! Organized in Concord last year, this happenin’ 18-member band has its roots in Texas with a unique collection of charts assembled and commissioned over many decades by Houston bandleader Johnny Dyson. Wanting his Swing legacy to live on, the 92-year-old Dyson was delighted to see his dance-oriented music travel north to New Hampshire last year, where a bunch of New Hampshire musicians have recognized its significance and are proud to keep it alive. So, whether you’re a dancer or a Swing fan, we hope you’ll join us again at Pitman’s Freight Room for another great evening of music and fun!

So if you're done with dueling banjos, screaming guitars, or amorphous sonic navel-gazing, grab your two-tone shoes, slick back that hair, turn back the clock and swing and stomp or just relax to the Tall Granite Jazz Band's smokey horns and good-time jazz

Brandon Marcini
Pitman’s Freight Room and House Rockin’ Productions present the Brandon Santini Band.  Memphis vocalist and harmonica player Brandon Santini combines his love and respect for traditional blues with a present, colorful style of playing that is often compared to James Cotton or Paul Butterfield. Raised in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, Brandon purchased his first harmonica in 1997 at the age of fifteen when his mother took him to the local music store upon his request. In Memphis he absorbed the sounds and culture of the Delta and North Mississippi Hill Country, honing his craft night after night, sweating it out in local Beale Street clubs just like Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and B.B. King did decades before him. This Time Another Year is Brandon’s second album, recorded at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis and features twelve dynamic performances from his former live bands.  The album debuted at #12 on the Living Blues Radio chart spending three months in the Top 20 as well as picking up a prestigious nomination for “Contemporary Blues Album” in the 2014 Blues Music Awards . Brandon was also nominated for a 2014 Blues Music Award in the category of, “Instrumentalist- Harmonica” and a Blues Blast Music Award in the category of, “Sean Costello Rising Star!”.

Jeremy Wallace Trio

Friday, June 26, 2015: 8:00 PM
$15.00 Admission: BYOB: Air Conditioned
Jeremy Wallace Trio
Jeremy Wallace is a blues/rock singer-songwriter from New Jersey. He has performed at various venues on the East coast, and has opened for artists such as Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond and  Freedy Johnston. Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song "Samson and Delilah" on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey

Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he’s been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. Jeremy charms his audience with his real-life, love-gone-bad ballads.  A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes (Tom Costagliola) and stand-up bass (Matt Gruenberg).
