Aug 3- J.P. HARRIS - with the Quahogs

In short, J.P. Harris plays Country Music. Not “Americana,” not “Roots,” “Folk,” or any other number of monikers used to describe a slew of spin-off genres; he plays from the foundation of these styles, the music that has influenced four generations of songwriters. In a world where prefixes have been added to the term “Country,” JP simply sticks to the old-fashioned sounds that have called to him. Referencing influences would be like describing each stitch in a quilt; every scrap of fabric tells a story of how the weathered and comfortable blanket came to be…
THE QUAHOGS... it’s difficult to define a band like The Quahogs by a genre. Equal parts tender and heavy rock, singer/songwriter Steve DelMonico’s lyrics are witty, wise, and delivered with a mentholated authority. Steve Donovan’s lead guitar meanders from gently weeping to chainsaw shredding, oftentimes in the same song. Amato and Nick on bass and drums round out the sound by hanging in the back pocket like a full wallet.

July 27 - the SILKS!!!! Hometown Throwdown

The Silks are a true grit rock and roll band out of Providence, Rhode Island. . With two consecutive Boston Music Awards for “Blues Artist of the Year” 2016 and 2017 The Silks are well on their way to achieving a rightful place in rock n roll history, or at least folklore.

The Silks deliver honest sounds of the blues-based rock n roll variety. You’ve got guitar pyrotechnics galore from frontman Tyler-James Kelly. Chicken-pickin’ or taking a soaring lead break, it’s quickly apparent Kelly is on a whole’nother level. It makes you wonder just when did he get his first real six-string? Then there’s the voice!

The Silks nail down the groove with its rhythm section of Uncle Sam Jodrey on drums, Jonas Parmelee on bass and Johnny Trama on rhythm and lead guitar. Fast songs, slow songs, it doesn’t matter. For this humble group of seasoned players, it’s all about the dance floor, and with the right chemistry, the dance floor reciprocates.

A lil Blues, a lil Country, a lil Rock!!!! You won’t be disappointed!!!!

July 18th - LEE DeWYZE from American Idol

Lee grew up in Mount Prospect, Illinois, and, at a very young age, would obsess over folk-
pop artists such as Simon & Garfunkel and Cat Stevens. Some of his earliest memories are

staring out the window, imagining he was inside the world of his favorite songs. Lee knew
he was destined to be a songwriter, and, by the age of 17, he was a professional musician,
touring, recording, and earning regional radio spins.
His career took a massive turn in 2010 when he won the ninth season of American
Idol. The honor offered a boost in exposure to an artist already two-albums deep in a
promising career. Post-Idol, Lee’s profile has skyrocketed as his songwriting has earned
impressive sync placements. His breakout moment was penning “Blackbird Song” for the
hit horror AMC series The Walking Dead. Since that track’s release in 2014, it has accrued
over 12 million YouTube views, over 6 million streams on Spotify, and has sold over
100,000 copies, putting it in the Top 10 of 2014’s most influential music syncs.

Jul 16 - Funk Night with the Autocrats

The Autocrats (formerly The Funky Autocrats) was founded by trumpeter Eric Bloom (Lettuce) to bring Funk and R&B to the people in the New England area and abroad. The group features a number of talented musicians who have played and toured with some of the music industry's best talent.

Much like RI's Autocrat Premium Coffee Syrup, The Autocrats insist on manufacturing funk of the highest quality. The group's unique brand of horn-driven funk and deep pockets are a favorite of the young and grown alike.

In 2007, Greg competed live on national television as part of Michael Bolton’s New Haven Choir on NBC's "Clash of The Choirs." "Clash of The Choirs" was a special reality competition show where five recording artists hand-selected twenty singers from their hometown communities and turned them into choirs. This experience allowed Greg the opportunity to share the stage with Michael Bolton, Patti LaBelle, Nick Lachey, Blake Shelton, and Kelly Rowland. While working on "Clash of The Choirs," Greg sang back-up for Michael Bolton's performance of "When a Man Loves a Woman" and was part of a sight-reading and fast-study group hand-picked from each choir for a live performance on NBC's "The Today Show" featuring Gloria Estefan. 
Greg has performed at The Fairfield Theater Co in Fairfield, Connecticut as part of the Band Together Charity Concert series. Greg has been the featured singer in the popular wedding/function band, Mass Conn Fusion, as well as a regular performer at both The Mohegan Sun Casino and Foxwoods Resort Casino.
