Fuel

Fuel formed in 1993 while playing the club circuit in and around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The band signed to Sony Records and in 1998 released their critically lauded, debut album Sunburn with the massive hit single "Shimmer". Their second album Something Like Human took the band to a new level of stardom, hitting multi-platinum status driven by the singles "Innocent" and "Hemorrhage", which remained at #1 for ten weeks. In 2003 Fuel released their third record Natural Selection, and found success at radio again with the hit song "Falls On Me". At that point the band had sold over 3.5 million records in the U.S alone, and had scored a trio of releases with top five singles. The band had headlined its own sold out tours, as well as supporting the likes of Aerosmith and Kid Rock. But even what seems like the best of circumstances can prove to be difficult and unhappy with the direction and lack of unity inside the band, Brett Scallions amicably parted ways with Fuel in 2004. During his time away from Fuel, Brett continued to write music and toured with Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger of the Doors. "When I left Fuel I was miserable, it did not feel like a band anymore," says Brett, continuing: "Unity was non-existent. Performing those amazing Doors songs with two legends, who are two of the architects of that sound was eye opening, life changing, and opened a whole new perspective on music and life. I realized much music is about freedom, and not being confined to formats." The new decade, some life lessons, and 8 years away from the band he helped create and always loved, gave Brett a new desire to re-launch Fuel. Armed with guitarist Andy Andersson, drummer Shannon Boone, and Shinedown bassist Brad Stewart, the new lineup took to the road to reignite "Fuelies", as their loyal fans are known. Fuel played to packed halls, sweaty rock clubs, and on festivals bills throughout the United States. The "Fuelies" wanted more, and they got it! In 2014 Fuel released Puppet Strings, on MRI/Red. Catapulted by the first single, the driving, hypnotic "Soul To Preach To", the album entered the Billboard rock charts at #1. The fans spoke loud and clear to the band and "Cold Summer" became the second single. The Fuelies were right, as "Cold Summer" became a staple on rock radio cracking the top 20 at rock radio throughout the summer, with a video that is a classic throw back to when rock videos were fun. "Rock n Roll is very much alive on this record," says Scallions, "Fuel is fully reignited, and it feels like we are just getting started."

MACEO PARKER + BROTHERS MCCANN
PRESENTED BY M.E. PRODUCTIONS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CABOT

MACEO PARKER


While most sax players have followed in the footsteps of jazz legends like Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, Maceo Parker has consistently marched to a different tune. Since his earliest days, he has gravitated to the more rhythmic and soulful end of the spectrum, following figures like Louis Jordan, Ray Charles and James Brown all of whom were innovators, each pushing their respective sound and style to the point of becoming something entirely new. It was Parkers recurring stints in Browns band, in fact, that not only produced some of the most enduring entries in the vast canon of American soul music, but also sowed the seeds of the funk revolution of the 1970s. In hindsight, Maceo Parker has been as innovative as the people whom he cites as his own influences.

BROTHERS MCCANN

Brothers McCann creates dynamic palettes of sound, weaving sweeping three-part harmonies over rustic reinventions of folk-rock. Mike, Pat and Erik nurture the heart of their New England musical upbringing with three unique songwriting styles on rotating display. The raw simplicity of acoustic guitars, keyboard and vocals welcomes the eager, patient listener to invest in their melodies and experience an honest, live performance. The band has become Boston's 'Americana' darlings and they are just as adept at 3 part folk harmonies as rockin' jam funk. In front of Maceo, fans can expect them to funk up a high energy set that will heat up your summer evening.

Michael Daves with Noam Pikelny and Brittany Haas

Grammy-nominated guitarist and singer Michael Daves tours three Northeast cities June 9-11 in support of his recently released two-disc set, Orchids and Violence (Nonesuch Records). Joining him for these performances are banjoist Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers) and fiddler Brittany Haas (Crooked Still, Haas Kowert Tice). Pikelny and Haas recorded with Daves on disc one of Orchids and Violence, along with Sarah Jarosz, Mike Bub, and special guests including Tony Trischka. On disc two, Daves recorded the identical track list of twelve, mostly-traditional bluegrass songs but in a raw, electric reinterpretation, and playing most of the instruments himself. Its "a roots-music master class, a brilliant example of old modes reinhabited with flair," says the New York Times. "To his credit, it can be hard to pick which version of a tune is best."Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as the pros top banjo picker, Pikelny was recently awarded IBMAs Banjo Player of the Year and Album of the Year awards. Haas recently toured and recorded with the Dave Rawlings Machine and is regarded as one of the most influential fiddlers of her generation.On May 6, Nonesuch released Violence and Orchids, the vinyl edition of Orchids and Violence. This one-disc mashup interleaves the bluegrass and electric versions of five songs from the double album, presenting side-by-side comparisons of the two versions of each song.

Raised in Revere, Danielle was raised on a variety of popular music, from her parent's Motown records to the classic rock influences like The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. On her latest album "Glory Junkies" she's joined by a killer cast of musicians blending the classic rock vibe of The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin with Danielle's signature lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst.

New Black Eagle Jazz Band

The Black Eagles, as we are often known to our fans, have been a fixture on the international jazz scene since 1971, bringing the sounds of traditional New Orleans Jazz to audiences all over the world, for more than 40 years! Many observers regard us as the premier band playing in the traditional jazz style; we do regard ourselves as the "Keepers of the Flame".

If you like the uplifting and soulful music of New Orleans you'll love the sound of the New Black Eagle Jazz Band. The band has delighted audiences all over the world with their huge and eclectic repertoire of jazz from the 1920's and 30's. The group has a mature mastery of this great American music- from Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton to early Duke Ellington to Cole Porter; from blues to rags to popular songs of the era.

The band has performed extensively all across North America, and has toured throughout Europe countless times. They have performed in New Orleans, London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Toronto to name a few. In 2011 they opened the Newport Jazz Festival to a packed house. They have been featured in concert with many jazz legends including Doc Cheatham, "Kid" Thomas, Benny Waters, Odetta and Milt Hinton, and with symphony orchestras - the Boston Pops, the Scottish National Orchestra , the Baltimore Symphony to name a few.

The band has released over 40 recordings (including the Grammy-nominated "On the River") and videos. Their music has been featured in Ken Burns' documentaries and on NPR Radio. The band has also been a guest on The Prairie Home Companion show.
