It's our debut gig at The Plough and Stars in Cambridge. Given the time of the year, we've been working hard on a bunch of very special holiday songs for this gig - you know, the good ones, like "Daddy's Drinking Up Our Christmas". In addition, we can all help Ray celebrate a certain milestone birthday that night (hint: it begins with "5" and ends in "0"). The music kicks off around 9:30 and we'll be playing all night long. It's gonna be fun - hope to see you there!
We return to the Paradise Cafe on Saturday Nov. 8th. Come for the food and stay for the music. Music starts about 8pm. 2 sets, no cover charge. We're very excited to be playing a full night of music for you on November 8th at the Paradise Cafe in Dehdam, MA. We'll be dusting off some B-sides, debuting new songs we have in the works and sprinkling in a choice cover or two. All the fun get's started around 8:00 PM but come down early for tasty eats, refreshing drinks and a chance at making some new friends. Hope to see you all there!

“There is little of the bothersome apathy displayed by so many bands today in the music of Rotary Prophets, a jangling alt-country group from Somerville, MA. This is music full of energy and passion, built around a solid understanding of classic Americana and country musical structures. It’s not hokey or twangy, mind you, but Faith – Lost – Love is well suited to spirited dancing across a straw-covered barn floor. The use of groovy, organ-y keyboards on many of their tracks, “Better Days” being a particularly strong selection, is especially infectious, at once recalling exultant gospel choirs and The Doors. This is a band that’s perfectly lovely to listen to on their band camp page, but also begs to be seen live.”
