By WMRC's Ray Auger - So much great talent in one local music scene! On any given Friday or Saturday night (and even Thursdays) you can catch 3 or 4 great shows if you time it correctly and hit the right venues at the right time. Here's a Live and Local Music Hop suggestion if you feel like getting a designated driver and making the musical best of you night.
It's a rather quiet night for a Friday in our local music scene but that means that you can hit the road and check out everything we have to offer! There's a lot of talent making noise out there most all are 2015 WMRC Local Music Award Nominees! I have added an LMA next to this year's nominees. Here we go...
Let's start at Jasper Hill at 7:30 for a treat and a cocktail. At 8pm local blues legend Bruce Marshall and his band make a rare appearance for a night of originals and covers.
8:30pm - Jump on 16 and head towards Miford. Jennifer Tefft (LMA) is doing her Jenn Under Cover show at Pepperoncini's, lending her unique style to some of your favorite songs as well as some of her incredible originals. Stop in to see why she has been nominated in multiple 2015 WMRC Local Music Awards categories and the winner of past awards.
9:15pm - Stop in at Central Tavern in Milford on your way through town for The Shakers... high energy rock, soul, funk and blues. This band features a keytar... a frickin' keytar! There you go! That's a gift I just gave you... you're welcome.
10:00pm - Off to Bellingham to catch the end of Chris Ross (LMA) Band at Twelve on Route 140. This is a special treat as the Medway Hockey Coach and talented original artist has assembles his gang that includes electric violinist Kate Russo (LMA), drummer Alec Antobenedetto (LMA), bassist Rick Calcagni, and keyboardist Jim Sullivan (LMA) for a special appearance at Twelve. Chris won Best Local Original Act at last year's LMAs. He is also nominated in several categories at this years LMAs including Sexiest Local Musician. So there you go ladies! You're welcome again.
11:00pm - I left you enough time to swing by The BBC in Franklin, right up the road, to dance the rest of the night away with The Getaway. High energy rock n roll covering rock and pop from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Have a safe night everyone and rest up! Tommorow night is going to be a busy one!
Don't forget to vote for your favorite local musicians and local music supporters!
