Please join us Saturday, Sept. 22 for the official CD release party for "Rave On: A Tribute to the Reducers Vol. 1", a brand new 24-track tribute to America's best unsigned band, The Reducers. The show will take place at the first venue the Reducers played together as a band, the Rose Barn at the Eugene O'Neill Theater in Waterford, CT. Live performances from Reducers peers and friends Heap, the Dogmatics, the Manchurians, Paul Brockett Roadshow, the Rivergods (w/Dave Rave & Lauren Agnelli), the Clothespi ns, Jes Farnsworth (of the Backstabbers), Matt Gouette (with band), Blonde Furniture and Missy Roback will focus on Reducer's (and Reducers-related) music. Bring your dance shoes! Doors open at 6:30pm. There is a suggested donation of $10, and the new CD will be available for purchase. All profits from the event and CD sales will benefit the family of Steve Kaika, the Reducers' bassman who died earlier this year after a courageous battle with cancer. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, and as always at the O'Neill, there will be free pretzels. Stay tuned for more release details on "Rave On: A Tribute to the Reducers Vol. 1" out Sept. 22 on Good Sponge Records.

“Gouette wants to make it in the music industry, but he’s one of the few who could make it on sheer talent alone — think Todd Rundgren, Nick Lowe, David Bowie. Gouette, 26, of New London, is a maverick, a singular figure who writes, records and produces his music; like the men above and the Stevie Wonders and Paul McCartneys of the world, he’s a one-man band. ”
