★ ★ ★ BARRENCE WHITFIELD & THE SAVAGES ★ ★ ★
Firstly, how good was the man on the band's show for us last year!??? If you weren't there read on. Those that were will just know they need to grab a ticket for this one!
Barrence Whitfield is a full-throttle soul screamer in the spirit of Little Richard, Wilson Pickett and Solomon Burke. He has been described as the owner of one incredible pair of lungs, with limitless energy and unmatched enthusiasm for his music and his audience. Barrence is a rarity in this business–one of a few black, rock n roll singer/entertainers who Spin Magazine says maintains a frenzied performance.
Whitfield is a performer so consumed with satisfying his audiences that he has been called ‘crazed, frenetic and completely unhinged.’ Barrence, the singer made up of equal parts Arthur Alexander, Nolan Porter and James Carr this mofo burns.’
After college, Barrence, like many organic music lovers, found himself working in a Kenmore Square record shop called Nuggets. There, he was discovered by guitarist Peter Greenberg, of the legendary Boston bands DMZ and The Lyres. Through this introduction, Barrence got his first taste of the rock ‘n roll life and Boston’s music scene. Boston reciprocated in kind with 7 Boston Music Awards.

★ ★ ★ KING SALAMI & THE CUMBERLAND THREE ★ ★ ★
London's town's, and arguably the world's, greatest Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues Beat sensation return with their 50s & 60s influenced wild and crazy sounds! The King howls and growls like Screamin' Jay greased up with Andre Williams' 'Bacon Fat'. He never stops twistin' and a movin' while his wurst men bash out vintage rock n roll with a lil bit o soul to boot.
These crazies last played for us at the start of the year and we simply couldn't wait to get them back!! If you haven't seen this band then what the hell have you been doing all this time!? Be sure too check out their latest album, 'Cooking Up a Party!' on Dirty Water Records too!
