Gerry Beaudoin Trio with Harry Allen

$20.00 Admission BYOB:
Gerry Bedoin et al
Collaborations are nothing new in the history of jazz.  Ellington and Strayhorn, Bill Evans and Jim Hall, Stanley Turrentine and Kenny Burrell are examples of artists who pooled their talent and ideas to create memorable and moving music. The Gerry Beaudoin Trio with Harry Allen is another memorable musical experience in this jazz tradition.  Meeting at a concert together in 2009 they found an instant musical camaraderie and respect for each other’s music. That turned into a recording session months later and that recording “The Gerry Beaudoin Trio: The Return with Harry Allen “is the result of a that chance meeting in 2009. The Return features trio and quartet tracks and eight Beaudoin Compositions as well as two standards. “Harry was the perfect foil for me and my music, and I knew that first night we played together. “  Harry comments,” Some recordings are fun to make from start to finish.  This was one of them. Great guys, great musicians and great tunes. We swung the whole afternoon away.”  Selected songs from the Return were placed on the Grammy Awards ballot in three categories.  After the success of this recording they returned to the studio in 2017 for their forthcoming fall release, “..And Then There Were Four”.  The current Gerry Beaudoin Trio features his longtime musical collaborator Bob Nieske on acoustic bass and his son Gerard Beaudoin on vibes.

Paul D'Angelo
Joe Espie
Paul Murphy spent almost eleven years as an Assistant District Attorney, supervising several of Massachusetts’s busiest courthouses, before building a reputation as a noted criminal-defense trial attorney. The unexpected twist to this story is that, for nine of those years, under the pseudonym of Paul D’Angelo, Paul was simultaneously becoming one of the nation’s top standup comedians

Combining an energetic, charismatic stage presence and spontaneous improvisational talent with an endless array of intelligent humor delivered in an animated style that grabs and holds the attention of crowds everywhere he performs, Paul’s constantly evolving and diverse selection of original material “takes normal everyday experiences and makes them sound absolutely hilarious.” Critics further write that “(Paul D’Angelo) is an energetic performer who gives a peak performance at every show.” “His quick comedic mind,” “unique observations” and “down to earth, stop-and-think humor” “keeps the crowd in hysterics.”

Joining Paul is comedian Joe Espie who started on the Boston comedy scene in 2006. His self -deprecating style along with his heavy sarcasm has made him a local favorite. Audiences enjoy how he jabs at his childhood, dysfunctional family, and disastrous dates. People seem to relate to his blue collar humor and his ability to be the punch-line of a joke.

Studebaker John
Studebaker John was born in Chicago in 1952, and has lived his whole life there. An avid music fan as a youngster, he learned to play several instruments, including first the harmonica, then the drums, and in his late teens, the guitar. He came of age in the ‘60s, so was part of the rock ‘n’ roll/rock generation. John liked a lot of different music, but as a young teenager was particularly drawn to the Blues. He was influenced by the music of Jimmy Reed, Freddy King, Slim Harpo, and things like that, all mixed in with other music I listened to.” He has performed covers of his Blues heroes, but chose to develop his own voice as a songwriter.

He has returned to the music of his youth; growing up on Maxwell Street, he plays this old style of blues with authenticity and what appears to be a magnificent sense of what it is all about. Old School Rockin’ is for all the people, from the rocking blues crowd to the purists, and from the young folks just getting into it to those who’ve been listening all along.”

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!
