Johnny A.

Although an instrumentalist, Johnny thinks like a singer as he plays, composes and improvises on guitar. "I'm always interested in dynamics and tone far more than the amount of notes played," Johnny explains. "What's most important is that every song has a strong, clear melody; not how fast or flashy the solo is going to be.

Leon Kolankiewicz

Sunday, December 29, 2013 - 10:30pm

Tracy Grammer, Clarence Bucaro opens

TRACY GRAMMER rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez's band members. Called “the new voice of modern folk music,” the duo was clearly in its ascendancy when in July 2002, Carter suffered a fatal heart attack while the duo was on tour in Massachusetts.

BroadBand is the brainchild of four college pals nostalgic for their a cappella glory days who decided to dig up some old arrangements and play. Three founders are still with us: Jana, Evangeline and Mary-Elise (M-E). Like power shoppers at a Macy's sale, they picked up a few extras -- Mary-Elise called on her high school buddy, Mimi (alumna), who knew Carla from their kids' preschool, who went to college with Tina, who told her neighbor Rebecca, who brought in her friend, Polly (alumna). Polly knew Hope and Erika. Evangeline knew Karen from the tennis courts.
