Please come show your support for Dave and MorganEve by attending this great bill of Roots Rockers who are donating their time to help out a friend and fellow musician.
Joe Fletcher And The Wrong Reasons
Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons is an Americana band that began in Providence, RI in 2005. In the center of this revolving cast of musicians, songwriter Joe Fletcher remains at the helm of this country blues-based outfit while still playing many solo acoustic shows throughout the land every year.
Sometime in 2007, the band recorded their debut album BURY YOUR PROBLEMS at the rather mysterious Golden Monkey Studio in the heart of Providence's Smith Hill neighborhood. Details of this event remain murky though it has been corroborated that sound experts Jay Berndt and Matt Oliva oversaw a assortment of musicians which included legends Jack Hanlon, Greg "J.D." Burgess, Dennis Kelly, and Dale Cunningham. We do know that the record received overwhelmingly positive reviews and Fletcher's story-driven songwriting began catching national attention earning comparisons to Cash, Cave, Cohen, and Dylan.
"The Proud Flesh’s music is so organic it's almost tangible, just waiting to be plucked from the night air and placed in your hand" - NHMusic.org
Elison Jackson is a garage–folk/ psychedelic rock band from Philadelphia, PA & New Haven, CT. The band has put out three records and several bedroom-demo mix-tapes since 2011. Their third LP, “Do Not Fear To Kill A Dead Man”, was released in the fall of 2013 to critical acclaim. Featuring basement organs, haunted lyrics and Neil Young-esque guitar jams, their sound has expanded significantly from its folk roots, moving forward with a strong foundation into blues, 80's analog synth, and prog-rock. Their newest record, a 5-song collection titled "Silver Sounds: Hallucinations", takes a step further in the band's sonic progression. Heavier drums, driving synth, and atmospheric bowed upright bass fill out the songs in a way the band has never achieved before.
Staying busy since their beginnings in 2010, Elison Jackson has emerged as one of the most consistent and unique bands in CT. Sharing the stage with Elvis Perkins, Akron/Family, Mystic Braves, Simone Felice and other like-minded contemporaries, the band has built a loyal following in CT and beyond. Primary songwriter and singer Sam Perduta currently resides in Philadelphia, PA, after living and basing the band out of New Haven from 2012-2015. The band plans on touring extensively in the Spring and Summer, and will be releasing "Silver Sounds: Hallucinations" on 12" record at the end of 2016. They are currently in the studio recording a follow up at the infamous "Blazone" in New Haven, CT.
"..evokes sepia tacked imaginary, the drawers of memory materialize in present as a mysterious revenant....as if "Time Out Of Mind" was recorded by a band of twenty-somethings in a garage: lucid madness"- Gabriele Benzing, OndaRock Italy
“With two solid full-length albums and a handful of EPs and singles now to their credit, Elison Jackson has established itself as one of Connecticut’s most consistently interesting young bands. Their most recent LP, last fall’s “Do Not Fear to Kill a Dead Man” (Telegraph Recording Company), is an assured nine-song collection of rootsy rock songs...”- Rolling Stone contributor Eric Danton, Listen Dammit
"Elison Jackson comes across as being possessed with an inherent wisdom bound by some ancient knowledge capable of evoking eerie comfort from shaking hands with the vague and wistful memories of lives past." - Drop Zone LA
