Presented by M.E. Productions

Jon Pousette-Dart has toured with some of the biggest drawing acts ever including Yes, Peter Frampton, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, James Taylor, The Byrds and many others. After seeing success in the ’70s, opting out of the ’80s, nudging his way back in the ’90s and finding his niche in the new millennium, he still makes music that’s touching, timeless, and imbued with universal appeal, while continuing his solo and band performances around the country. In addition to performing, he continues working hard on the Estate of Richard Pousette-Dart, which promotes the works of his late father, the eminent abstract expressionist.

“The John Mayall of New England,’ says Peter Wolf of James Montgomery. While growing up in Detroit he learned first-hand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years, he’s carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene. The James Montgomery Band has toured with among others: The Allman Brothers, Steve Miller, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, BB King, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker, and The Blues Brothers.

Special Guest: Bruce Marshall
Bruce is an amazing singer/songwriter and blues guitarist known as a powerful and expressive vocalist who sings with emotion and conviction, whether it’s an all out rave up or a sensitive ballad. He favors a melodic style of lead guitar rarely heard today and favors featuring on slide with his trademark steel body dobro, which has become a crowd favorite.

Tickets: $29, $39, $49
