This is a very self indulgent episode - Ronnie and I have talked about our band The Butler Frogs and the fact that we have an album coming out Spring 2017.
We thought this would be a great time for us to become guests and have our occasional host Mr. Jonathan Beakley talk to the entire band before the release.
Joining the conversation is lead guitarist David Moore who you have met before in episode 011, bassist Tim Fiehler who is an institution around these parts and drummer Greg Mara who also plays with the band Boatyard Resin.
Drummer Jerome Deupree played in The Humans which toured with Squeeze and opened for legends like Patti Smith and Iggy Pop. He was also with Bourbon Princess, Joe Morris, The Coots and the then jazz group Either Orchestra.
In the late 1980’s he joined Mark Sandman and Dana Colley to form the great low rock band Morphine and he currently plays once again with Dana Colley and Jeremy Lyons with the band Vapors of Morphine.
For over 20 years guitarist, drummer and singer-songwriter Chad Hollister has headlined all over New England and has also opened for Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty and has shared the stage with Phish, Warren Haynes and Blues Traveler to name a few.
An in-demand bass player, composer and teacher, Greg fronts his own indie band Lowman and jazz trio Sinistral as well as being a member of the phenomenal 'Gypsy Jazz' group Rhythm Future Quartet, Roving Soul and ManOnLand and performs with many others including John Funkhouser, Britt Conners and Bourbon Renewal and The Sonic Explorers.
Musician, teacher and the founder of Consenses, the artistic game of telephone that aims to form what she terms 'interpretive chains' that links all 5 senses. Music has been a chain in Sally’s own life, spending several years on the road with hundreds of shows highlighting her strong and thoughtful writing style and voice.
Boston based MB Padfield has the presence of a rocker and the grace of a singer-songwriter with an honest story to tell. She is a road warrior and not just because of her bedazzled Harley. We expect big things from her in the coming years.
