OUR NEXT NEW HAMPSHIRE SHOWS
October 1 BODEANS
Long known as one of the best live acts in the business, BoDeans continue to tour year round and deliver amazing, high energy, performances. “I realized some time ago that the key to the BoDeans identity is the fans’ connection to our music — nowhere is that more evident or rewarding as when we come together live. We love to connect with fans who have supported us for so long and brought us so much inspiration.” said Kurt Neumann, the band’s founder and frontman,” We will continue to play as long as they continue to come out and sing along.”
Chart topping songs like “Fadeaway”, “Only Love,” and “Dreams” won them Rolling Stone’s readers’ poll for Best New American Band in 1987. They were part of a small contingent of bands that inspired a new radio format known as Adult Alternative, Album Rock-Triple A. Their reputation for delivering a dynamic live show garnered support slots with U2, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, George Thorogood, The Pretenders, David Bowie, and appearances at Farm Aid, Summerfest, and ACL, among others.

This is s special DVD recording show with comedian Paul D’Angelo. Always a great night of laughs, Paul’s ability to connect with the audience and make them laugh is infectious.
October 5 STRYPER
Stryper remain one of rock’s best kept secrets. The iconic band, featuring Michael Sweet (vocals, guitar), Robert Sweet (drums), Oz Fox (guitar), and Tim Gaines (bass), built a formidable catalog since first forming in 1983. They’ve sold over 10 million albums worldwide, garnered Grammy Award nominations, scored DOVE Awards, sold out arenas everywhere, and inspired one of the most diehard fan bases in history. They are responsible for such ‘80s classic albums as “Soldiers Under Command,” “To Hell with the Devil,” “In God We Trust,” and such MTV hit singles/videos as “Calling on You,” “Free,” and “Honestly.” (Listen)
January 8 CHERRY POPPIN’ DADDIES
After experimenting with narrative storytelling through shifting genres on Susquehanna in 2007 (Latin Pop, Swing, Ska, Glitter Rock), the band felt the need to put out something straight forward and fun, taking a cue from their 1998 compilation CD. “Just as our swing fans did before Zoot Suit Riot, fans of our Ska songs have been suggesting that we release all of them together”, lead singer Steve Perry explained, “so they wouldn’t have to press the skip button over a western swing song with a lap steel, or a Flamenco track. Now they can just throw a Cherry Poppin Daddies record on without having to explain, and possibly apologize for our eclecticism”. With Skaboy the Daddies plan to reconnect with a Ska audience that is largely aware of the band as merely a swing band. “We toured with many of the iconic ska bands when we were coming up,” Perry said, “the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Fishbone, Reel Big Fish, The Specials, No Doubt, Madness but at that time we were really touring behind Zoot Suit Riot, so we didn’t play a ton of Ska in our sets, now we will.” (Listen)
March 4 and 5 LOS LONELY BOYS
Los Lonely Boys, made up of brothers Ringo Jr., Henry, and Jojo Garza, released their self-titles debut album in 2003. Although originally released on small Or Music label, Epic Records picked up Los Lonely Boys for major-label distribution in early 2004. The album quickly won the band a large national audience. Its lead single “Heaven” became a Top 20 pop hit, reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, and eventually won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
Los Lonely Boys solidified their success with 2006’s Sacred, which brought two more Grammy nominations, and 2008’s Forgiven, as well as the holiday-themed Christmas Spirit. Meanwhile, the band continued to build its reputation as a singularly powerful live act. (Listen)
March 13 GRAND SLAMBOVIANS
The Grand Slambovians have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd,” which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, and maybe even some Frank Zappa as well. Upon returning recently from the U.K. this fall where they spread their contagious brand of quirky Americana from Glasgow to Penzance, the band completed work on their fourth studio album, “The Grand Slambovians”. The advent of “The Grand Slambovians” is both the band’s latest reincarnation and the title of their new soul stirring CD. (Listen)
