    "Based out of Boston, Grits and Groceries Orchestra and their performance is tour de force. "These guys are TIGHT"! John Anthony plays one hell of a melodic bass also lending some nice vocals. Robert Lyons delivers some insanely great tenor saxophone, whose sound pierces the atmosphere with mind boggling ease. Rare to hear sax of this quality. Charlie O’Neal on guitar, plays as if everything he did so well in his performance, was simply an epic warm up to what he proceeds to do now. Kemp Dunn on drums, easily equals the flawless talent of the rest of the band." -(R.J. Ouellette) The Noise / Music New England

    Named “Residency King of the Hub" and said to be “just too talented to remain a local hero,” by The Boston Globe; Tim Gearan, the Boston based singer-songwriter was awarded Boston Music Award's Best Ongoing Residency in 2012, as well as the first Gibson Guitar sponsored Unsung Hero Award at the BMA's in 2004.

    Known for his guttural voice, powerful song writing and masterful guitar playing, Tim Gearan was raised in New York, yet is lovingly claimed by the legendary Boston music community, where he has been playing music for over 20 years.

    Gearan performed on Grammy nominated, American Blues artist, Susan Tedeschi’s 1998 debut album, “Just Won’t Burn,” and has been regularly sought after by countless musicians for his uninhibited, soulful guitar playing, vocal harmonies and creative soaring abilities.

    Los Sugar Kings St. Patricks Day Bash

    9-midnight

     

    St-Paddys-Chianti-LSK-prThink globally and celebrate St. Patrick's Day at Chianti!
    Tonight, our Tuscan restaurant will feature  Irish musician, Benny Benson, who will bring his Latin-themed band, Los Sugar Kings. We will serve one of his favorite dishes, Chianti's grilled Mexican pizza, and you can take it all in with a Guinness!

    Los Sugar Kings is a Boston-based quartet known for their dynamic live performances, rich harmonies, intense musicianship and ability to transcend genres with an authenticity rarely heard. In their world, respect is paid to the forefathers and traditions of Afro-Cuban Son, Salsa and Rumba-Flamenca but Los Sugar Kings (named after a Cuban baseball team) also actively draw on influences from nearly every continent in their unique roots-rock-reggae fusion repertoire. All are highly accomplished on their instruments, however the true magic of Los Sugar Kings is how these four individuals come together to put on a performance worthy of any festival, party, club or concert hall.

    Racky Thomas

    9-Midnight

    Harp_at_HeatherfestRacky Thomas got his introduction to the blues while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Ma. when he saw Stevie Ray Vaughan perform at Northeastern's Matthews Arena circa 1987. At that time, Thomas was a guitar major without any clear direction or focus. Vaughan's performance that evening changed that; cementing what was to become an ongoing study of the music, and desire to carry on its great tradition.

    Thomas formed a psuedo-blues band with some friends intent on finding work. The band enjoyed landing a few spot gigs at some local venues; and hosting a memorable 'house party' that was ultimately broken up by the local constabulary. Discouraged after auditioning for a local club owner who flatly stated "You'se ain't blues", the band fizzled.

    Upon graduating from Berklee in 1991 Thomas found himself disillusioned; without a band or any prospects. While driving a cab, Mai Cramer's 'Blues After Hours' every Friday and Saturday night on Boston's public radio station WGBH was Thomas' oasis for the blues. Thomas caught on with a band calling themselves the 'Mean Red Spiders' and played around Boston at venues like the Rathskellar in Kenmore Square and Midway Cafe' in Jamaica Plain.
