Brother Sal & Tanner Ogle at Open Mic! @ Bishop's Lounge
Apr 24 @ 7:30 pm – Apr 25 @ 1:30 am

“Take-Two Tuesdays” has a nice ring to it doesn’t it?

Once again we are thrilled to bring not one but TWO powerhouse acts to be featured on the open mic stage!

Sal Maffettone brings a unique and powerful energy to every project he dips his toes into. He is the drummer with The Mary Jane Jones, guitarist and vocalist with The Medicinal Purpose and The Brother Sal Trio, and is a frequently sought after addition to some of the Valley’s best bands. If you’re feelin’ low, Sal’s groove-laden, soulful blues and beyond is sure to cure what ails.

Tanner Ogle is an incredibly talented, up-and-coming guitarist, singer and songwriter, known by many as the lead singer of Entandem, a progressive post-rock group based out of Northampton. In his solo career, he often blesses the open mic stage with his incredible vocal control and range. Playing original tunes with carefully crafted and intricate guitar parts, his beautiful and earnest voice weaves in and out, providing his listeners with a truly engaging and hypnotic sound.

The Tuesday night scene has become quite the special hang, and we can’t wait to bring the masses together for this majestic night of quality music, Max Rudolph’s Coloring Club, and of course… the porch. Come sign up early if you wanna play a slot. The jam is back this week, open to all, and goes late! Bring your gear! See ya there… ❤

Mandolin for Beginners
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The MFB class meets Wednesdays from 7-9pm at the Sweet Music Studio in Holyoke, MA. The MFB class is a group of adults who have just started on the mandolin, or have been playing it for less than 1 year. The group is learning how to play the mandolin, how to read music, and how to accompany others using chords and improvisation. We are also studying relevant songs, learning chords, melodies and how to sing. The group is a lot of fun and there are always openings. If you would like to join the Mandolin For Beginners Group, please contact us through the form on the side bar.

In addition to the Holyoke, MFB class, we are now offering the same class at the Keene Community Music Center in Keene, NH. When contacting us, please not your preference in the comments box!

Open Mic ~ Wednesday Friends Day
Apr 25 @ 10:00 pm – Apr 26 @ 1:30 am
Open Mic ~ Wednesday Friends Day

EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT Any style music, original or cover songs welcome. No matter what instrument you play, come on down and jam. A house band is there for back up. If you’re in a band, are part of a band, or a soloist, come on down for a great night! | 10pm-1.30am

You can play any of our instruments as a participant. We provide the entire music equipment setup (we encourage people to bring their own drum sticks, guitars & bass, but it is not required). Anyone can sign up and then play away, no purchase required!

Our Open Mic is run a little differently than most other Open Mics. Each participant is able to sign up for his/her desired slot and then choose which of the house band musicians that they want backing their set. (ex: Joe signs up for 11pm-11.20pm. Joe plays acoustic guitar. Joe chooses to have the entire house band backing him on his entire set so he lets us know and we make it happen.) When we have that information it makes it easier to call everyone from the audience to get them up on the stage as quickly as possible so we keep the excitement in the air.

As a musician, this night of music is worth checking out and taking part in. Any and all musicians are welcome!

Wet Tuna / Footings / Tongue Oven @ The Root Cellar
Apr 26 @ 7:00 pm – 11:59 pm

Wet Tuna
WET TUNA was formed for all beings. legendary WFMU DJ/HEAD the avant ghetto says “revel in the earth/space magic”!
Utterly boo-licious debut slab by this new duo, made up of Matt ‘MV’ Valentine and Pat ‘P.G. Six’ Gubler, who have been in cahoots since the near-forgotten days of Memphis Luxure. The pair (mostly known for guitar-aktion) create a full band’s worth of jams using percussion and keys and all-else. The results make for one of the more mind-melting platters to’ve hit the Valley in a good while. Like many of the best sides this pair has been associated with, the music on Livin’ The Die is an elegant balance of ramble and spear. The songs’ formats are as loose as Earl Butz’s shoes but each of them is lanced with guitar sounds as tight as his legendary fist. Around these spumes of electric menace you’ll find rings of crazy space burble, vocals so deeply layered they sound like something happening in the back of Daevid Allen’s brain. But large swathes of the album are rurally expansive, as befits the mountainside on which it was recorded. Pods of guitar-pedal-whomp slowly surface in the middle of whirling sea of harmonica slurps, juice harp bwongs and vocals as dreamy as they are lost. Roll a bone or be one. The choice, as always, is yours.” –Byron Coley

Engines engage ~ underground early NY dance club vibes ~ Laid back ZZ top thing happening~ swampy grooves ~ dancey! Chilled vocals in a swirly jelly mix~ Stonesy feel here~ Cool lyrics def. Simmering stew of sonic textures including jawharp! ~ spooky themes surging in the undermix ~ kind of sci-fi cartoon P-Funky thing ~ mellow jam ~ Yeah man EscapefromNY synthy washes Danger in the Alphabet City space station ~ motorik across the plains to the next Wet Tuna gig…
Lovely lovely spectrasound production all around~ wow what a trip this album is~ total trip
