Lenny Clarke
Lenny Clarke is an American comedian and actor, famous for his thick Boston accent and role as Uncle Teddy on the series Rescue Me. Clarke was born in Cambridge, Ma. He was the most famous "saloon comic" in Boston during the 1980s, the heyday of the Boston comedy scene. The DVD release When Standup Stood Out details Clarke's early career and affiliations with other famous Boston comics, such as Steven Wright and Denis Leary, his good friends. In 1980, Clarke wrote and starred in a local television show Lenny Clarke's Late Show featuring Wright and Leary, in collaboration with Boston comedy writer Martin Olson. Clarke and Olson were roommates, and their apartment, known by comedians as "The Barracks", was a notorious "crash pad" for comics visiting Boston, and the subject of a documentary film as Clarke and Leary explain in When Standup Stood Out.

Ring in the New Year with a dance and delightful hors d’oeuvres buffet at Pitman’s Freight Room.

The Racky Thomas Blues Band has been a torchbearer for the blues since its formation in 1995, when Racky Thomas collaborated with bassist Todd Carson, guitarist Nick Adams, and drummer Ted Larkin to make a demo cd, and do some gigs around the Boston area.  Thomas has a vast repertoire of tunes – blues from world-class bluesmen, plantation gospel (the original blues), rocking electric blues, classic and obscure blues, and Racky Thomas blues!   including “Matchbox Blues”, “Biscuit-Bakin’ Woman”, “Mona”, “Sugar-coated Love”, “Big Road Blues”, “Hoochie-Coochie Man”, and “Mojo Workin’” (to name a few).

Gutsy vocals, down and dirty harmonica, smoking guitar, a killer rhythm section delivering pure unadulterated blues, and you've got the Racky Thomas Band.   Twice nominated for Boston Music Awards, and winners of the 1997 Battle of the Blues bands you've only got to experience them once to become a believer.

Heather Pierson Charlie Brown Christmas
Christmas Bows
The Heather Pierson Quartet (Heather Pierson, piano/vocals; Joe Aliperti, alto & tenor sax; Shawn Nadeau, bass; Craig Bryan, drums) and Davey Sturtevant on guitar, will present the musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas. Originally telecast in December 1965, the program was an instant hit with audiences who connected with Peanuts creator Charles M. Schultz’s cast of characters – especially with its rounded-headed hero Charlie Brown, his woefully scrawny Christmas tree, and his typewriter-wielding dog Snoopy.

This beloved holiday classic resonates with both children and adults of every generation. The musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas, composed by the late Vince Guaraldi, is just as poignant and touching as the story and includes the hugely popular hit “Linus and Lucy”. Don't miss this very special evening which will also include other jazzy holiday favorites!
