This time around we have a guitar lovers night in store for you. Dave Schramm, James Mastro and The Kennedys. Come in and have a listen. It starts at 8pm and is only $10. Dave Schramm and I met while playing guitars for Syd Straw years ago. He has his own band called The Schramms who apparently finished mixing their latest album recently. Dave also did some time in Yo La Tengo as a guitarist. He has a bunch of great songs that we will get to hear in this stripped down setting. He can be heard more commonly as the band leader of Radio Free Song Club which you can find the shows posted on the interweb. You can find out more about Dave's musical world here : http://www.theschramms.com/ James Mastro, the rock and roll mayor of Hoboken will make a rare appearance as himself. James and I have been playing guitar together with Edward Rogers for a few years now. He plays guitar with a slew of artists including Ian Hunter, John Cale and Freedy Johnston. James was an early member of The Bongos and led The Health and Happiness Show. He also owns The Guitar Bar with two locations in Hoboken. Http://www.guitarbar.com/ The Kennedys are Pete and Maura Kennedy. An amazing pop folk duo that have toured the US and Europe many times as themselves or as part of Nanci Griffiths band. Pete Kennedy is a tour de force on the guitar and Maura has an amazing way with melody and hooks. I'm really psyched to have them join us.

"Rave On!" A Tribute to the Songs of Buddy Holly, with Pete and Maura Kennedy Friday, September 12, 2014, 8pm http://www.auburnpublictheater.org/events.php?eventID=549 Tickets: $20 Sponsored by: *The Citzien * NYSCA TICKETS GO ON SALE JULY 1ST “Byrdsy jangle, boy-girl harmonies…irresistible” -Rolling Stone “Unabashed, hook-laden pop” -Village Voice “More hooks than Marilyn Monroe’s closet” -Chicago Sun-Times In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know," the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today’s burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable.
