concerts in July this year:
July 5 The Shane Wood Jazz Trio, featuring Shane Wood on piano/vocals, Bruce Owens on drums and Neil Kruszkowski on saxophone/vocals, will bring a smooth jazz sound to Center Stage. Their unique blend of smooth vocals, saxophone, piano and drums showcases several different styles including blues, funk, ballads, and traditional jazz standards with some Cole Porter in addition to the contemporary jazz arrangement sounds of Stevie Wonder and The Beatles.
July 19 Tom Kennedy and Joe Zajac are the Shananigans who hail from the greater New Bedford area have been playing music together for 30 years. Their music encompasses a number of different musical styles including Irish and American folk, bluegrass, country, and old time rock and roll. Those various musical influences are reflected in the instruments they play: guitar, banjo, mandolin, pennywhistle, and harmonica. Their excellent musicianship, great vocals, and a healthy dose of irreverent humor – all make for a performance that’s musically rewarding and a lot of fun.
July 26 The Accidental Band with Butch McCarthy on Guitar & Vocals,Bob Calderara on Mandolin & Vocals, Steve Mazza on Bass and JB Borges on Drums will offer a blend of pop music and Americana in the folk-rock tradition. Formed several years ago in the New Bedford area, the band has gone through many metamorphoses through the years. The recent addition of Bob Calderara from Plymouth has solidified the group.
