NotesA dynamic band spanning styles from roots to contemporary blues, this driving 4-piece band is sure to scratch your blues itch. The band is fronted by the combo of musical power houses guitarist and vocalist Dave 'Fish' Bottom, and Chris Velletri on tenor sax and vocals. This powerful duo is backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections around consisting of Steve Kaulback on drums and vocals and bassist Marty Lynch. Dave Bottom – Guitar and Vocals Dave picked up his first guitar from a dime store and started teaching himself to play. After flirting with pop music Dave was introduced to blues via the famed British Invasion. That influence underlies the bluesy soloing that Dave brings to his playing; feisty blues steeped in traditional idioms with modern aggression. Dave has performed with LA East, St Amand, Blue Sky Project, Blues Tonight, Maxwell Street and the Voodoo Clowns. Dave is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Marty Lynch – Bass and Vocals Marty has been playing bass since the late 80's when he was in an original Americana band, currently called Comanchero, out of Boston. In 2003 he moved to Maine and began playing with Bonnie Edwards and the Practical Cats. He continues to frequent blues jams in the area and current plays with the Blues Mafia, Bluzology, the Voodoo Clowns., Matt and the Barnburners, Luther James and the River Kings and Bonnie Edwards. He plays a combination of upright electric and regular electric bass. Marty is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Chris Velletri – Sax and Vocals A New York native, Chris started playing the sax in the third grade. His earliest musical influences include: Benny Carter, Illinois Jacquet, Thelonious Monk, Art Pepper, and Zoot Sims. After college, he relegated his horn to the back of his closet. After a thirty-five-year layoff, Chris got sax out in 2017, and hasn’t looked back. Bitten hard by the blues bug, he bought himself a tenor saxophone and joined the Voodoo Clowns. Steve Kaulback – Drums and Vocals The son of a Navy Commander, Steve started his musical journey in Texas in 1963 singing and drumming. After hearing Albert King’ Live Wire/Blues Power album he knew he was hooked for life. His bands have included: Cottonmouth Blues Band, Arlo West and the LA Bluesmen, The Pinecasters, Juke Joint Devils, Continental Shakedown, Mike Hayward and the Blue Lions, Dave Mello Trio, and the Voodoo Clowns. Steve is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame and is recognized by the Maine Blues Heritage Foundation Museum.

Notes"Bad Friday" Dance party! El Malo is a musical collective specializing in the sounds of Latin dance music blended with jazz, hiphop, funk, soul, and progressive rock influences. With fresh sounding tributes to classic Latin artists and energetic original material courtesy of a lineup featuring drum kit/Latin percussion, electric guitar, bass, vocals and horns, we bring the party to any event. On El Malo's first (self titled) release, a low-fi Latin Jazz session recorded live in Brunswick, Maine; the Portland Phoenix published a complementary review, calling the release, in part: "gritty and nasty in some interesting ways" and "As a whole, this album is a piece of genuinely different music-making with Latin and gypsy flavors you won't find often in Portland."

NotesENCORE Posted December 31, 2019INCREASE FONT SIZEResize Font Tricky Britches to play in Concerts for a Cause series BRUNSWICK — Tricky Britches will bring their high-energy string band to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise money for two local charities. From their roots of playing foot-stomping old-time fiddle tunes, Tricky Britches has progressed into a fusion of original material, classic bluegrass, country and folk rock. Band members include Tyler Lienhardt on fiddle, Seth Doyle on mandolin, Jed Bresette on bass and Richard Bicknell on banjo. The story of the band begins in the spring of 2009 when three longtime friends from Gorham decided to take the songs from their back-porch jam sessions and Portland street corner busking to the next step. They produced a CD of old-time tunes and started playing for weddings, parties and contra dances. After adding a banjo to the group, Tricky Britches produced two more CDs featuring their original material. Their influences include John Hartford, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, the Grateful Dead, the Everly Brothers and American traditional folk music. Before the boys knew it, they were playing concerts and the big music festivals. Tricky Britches has played on stages big and small across the U.S. and Europe, but at the end of the day, their favorite show is still on a crowded street corner at midnight. Proceeds from the concert will benefit Tedford Housing (providing housing and services for the homeless) and Oasis Free Clinics (providing free medical and dental services for those who are uninsured and can’t afford insurance). Tickets are $15 in advance; $18 at the door; students/children, $5. They are available at the church office, Gulf of Maine Books or online at https://britches.brownpapertickets.com/.

Time NotesBlues Jam Every Sunday 4-8PM
NotesA dynamic band spanning styles from roots to contemporary blues, this driving 4-piece band is sure to scratch your blues itch. The band is fronted by the combo of musical power houses guitarist and vocalist Dave 'Fish' Bottom, and Chris Velletri on tenor sax and vocals. This powerful duo is backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections around consisting of Steve Kaulback on drums and vocals and bassist Marty Lynch. Dave Bottom – Guitar and Vocals Dave picked up his first guitar from a dime store and started teaching himself to play. After flirting with pop music Dave was introduced to blues via the famed British Invasion. That influence underlies the bluesy soloing that Dave brings to his playing; feisty blues steeped in traditional idioms with modern aggression. Dave has performed with LA East, St Amand, Blue Sky Project, Blues Tonight, Maxwell Street and the Voodoo Clowns. Dave is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Marty Lynch – Bass and Vocals Marty has been playing bass since the late 80's when he was in an original Americana band, currently called Comanchero, out of Boston. In 2003 he moved to Maine and began playing with Bonnie Edwards and the Practical Cats. He continues to frequent blues jams in the area and current plays with the Blues Mafia, Bluzology, the Voodoo Clowns., Matt and the Barnburners, Luther James and the River Kings and Bonnie Edwards. He plays a combination of upright electric and regular electric bass. Marty is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Chris Velletri – Sax and Vocals A New York native, Chris started playing the sax in the third grade. His earliest musical influences include: Benny Carter, Illinois Jacquet, Thelonious Monk, Art Pepper, and Zoot Sims. After college, he relegated his horn to the back of his closet. After a thirty-five-year layoff, Chris got sax out in 2017, and hasn’t looked back. Bitten hard by the blues bug, he bought himself a tenor saxophone and joined the Voodoo Clowns. Steve Kaulback – Drums and Vocals The son of a Navy Commander, Steve started his musical journey in Texas in 1963 singing and drumming. After hearing Albert King’ Live Wire/Blues Power album he knew he was hooked for life. His bands have included: Cottonmouth Blues Band, Arlo West and the LA Bluesmen, The Pinecasters, Juke Joint Devils, Continental Shakedown, Mike Hayward and the Blue Lions, Dave Mello Trio, and the Voodoo Clowns. Steve is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame and is recognized by the Maine Blues Heritage Foundation Museum. Steve is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame and is recognized by the Maine Blues Heritage Foundation Museum.
