This event is all ages
Hailing from the Hallowed grounds of the garage at 123 Centre Street (former home of the "Dropkick Murphy's" and "Everybody Out") comes Rick Barton's latest and greatest incarnation "Continental." Continental will never be defined by a particular genre. They blend a unique style of rock, folk,country and blues to as closely follow Gram Parsons mission of "Cosmic American Music." Some of the initial comparisons have been to Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and The Velvet Underground. Continental will be a touring, starving, and hard working band coming to your town. Will have sleeping bags, will need floor space. The end of an era with the destruction of the legendary garage space at 127 Centre St. Quincy MA. This is the room I've toiled many hours in and often spent lonely nights trying to sleep amongst the wild cats and raccoons! We all need certain fixtures in our lives and that crappy old garage was mine. Unfortunately our family was broke and we had to sell the property. Life is constantly evolving and so is music. The memories will always remain. The future will always hold endless possibilities. So we move on now, still a garage band in spirit. Still carrying that Torch! - Rick
The Red Handed Bandits
When most bands have been at it for this long after enough hardship, they hang up their guitars and buy minivans. The Red Handed Bandits did another round of shots and got back onstage, and we aren't stopping anytime soon. After a few lineup changes and a hiatus we are out to make some noise in this town and wherever the road takes us. Those 5 kids that came out of a rural Illinois cornfield are still at it, and its only grown into a booze-fueled foulmouthed monster.
