Oct 17 - Little Days featuring Jorgen Carlsson (Gov't Mule) & Mease

Hailing from Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, there’s a spirit of place and purpose on their new album “Pop & Tacos”, their third release, displaying a palpable sense of growth and maturity in their writing. The 11-song effort is boosted by confident performances and lush arrangements tethered by Diaz’ compelling vocal style to the unique grain of these original songs.

Mease puts its own spin on the jam, with a fusion of roots music and pure psychedelia taking you on a cosmic American journey.

Early show at Askew! All ages welcome, $8 cover

Will Orchard - A native of Rhode Island, Will Orchard began quietly releasing music in 2015 under the name LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike. Through a cathartic and carefree process, he steadily churned out hundreds of home recorded songs compiled into literally one-hundred releases on bandcamp, often drawing from whimsy and childlike tales in his lyricism. During this time, he began to take his songs around the US in a do-it-yourself fashion, gradually accumulating a small, passionate following. More info here

Dirty Bird - With roots going back to New York’s famous LaGuardia High School, Dirty Bird began in 2016 as the indisputable forces of music compelled long time artists and friends to reconnect. Since then, the band has presented powerful performances to a variety of venues around the Northeast, including Rockwood Music Hall, Muchmore’s and Radio Bean. Dirty Bird brings both new and established audiences honest, perceptive lyrics interlaced with effervescent melodious arrangements. Soulful, harmonious and ever-evolving, Dirty Bird offers a unique sound that redefines what it means to be a folk band. More info here

Sep 26 - Jesse & the Hogg Brothers

This Thursday is a night of Comedy & Music…. Come down early & catch the Backdrop Comedy Showcase from 8-10pm, then stick around for the wildly hysterical Texas band: Jesse & the Hogg Brothers!

If this was just a band making white trash jokes and wearing Billy Bob teeth and using fake twangs this might suck. But the beauty of the Hoggs ( who are not above white trash jokes, Billy Bob teeth and fake twangs) is that they are also making super earnest country music, old time stuff, including CB trucking songs, odes to America, and Christmas songs on both albums. If you can't get enough of the crude Southerner comedy (and a zillion Larry The Cable Guy fans can't be wrong) meets 1968 Opry music then get both CD's.

“This is a tight group of musicians, attacking bluegrass & Southern rock sounds with both a ferocious irreverence & a deep respect for musicality. The combination is both oddly charming and outrageously funny.” -Victor D. Infante, Telegram & Gazette

Backdrop Comedy returns to Askew Providence with an all new lineup for it's September show! Hosted by Derek K. Moore, the night will be headlined by the hilarity of Derek Furtado and features Sarah Martin w/ special guest Liani Perez.

Derek Furtado's ability to make people laugh helped him adapt to the life of a military brat and later settling in Massachusetts where he began an official career in stand-up comedy. From the very first joke to the end of his set, there aren't any crowds Derek can't win over. Sporting a movie star smile and devilish charm, Derek captivates the audience with not only his comedy, but his interaction with the crowd. With his material ranging from his sexual escapades to being assaulted by a senior citizen outside of a bingo parking lot, Derek has a way of appealing to all audiences.

Sarah Martin is one of the leading ladies of comedy out of Boston, MA. A woman, but certainly not a lady. Sarah gives her sardonic perspective on life with some extra sass. Using her vitality and dry wit she has been building a name for herself in the comedy world by being real and a riot!

With special guest Liani Perez!

After the Showcase, stick around for the hysterical Texas band: Jesse & the Hogg Brothers!!!

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.
