Frank Fotusky – Acoustic Blues, Guitar Rags & Originals $10-15 @ Cadenza
Mar 6 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Contact
VenueCadenza
Address5 Depot Street, Freeport, ME 04032
NotesFrank Fotusky plays Acoustic Blues in the style reminiscent of the great East Coast "Piedmont" players such as Rev. Gary Davis, Blind Boy Fuller, John Jackson, Blind Willie McTell to name a few. A majority of his material is culled from the '20's, '30's and '40's and Acoustic Blues and Guitar Rags are the foundation of his music. Along with this repertoire, his original compositions are rooted in this era and still carry a contemporary feel. East coast or "Piedmont Blues," as it is so often called, consists of sophisticated syncopation with fingerpicked guitar. The result is a sound that resembles that of the ragtime piano. Frank has performed with Virginia Bluesman John Jackson, Paul Geremia, Roy Book Binder, Hubert Sumlin and has been festival headliner in his own right. BLUES ACCESS has said, "(Frank) offers a sparkling guitar sound on fine Piedmont-style blues and rags....Fotusky's clean fingering draws you in and projects the music, which would be somber in other hands, out." In the fall of 1999, Frank released his first CD "TEASIN' THE FRETS" to widespread critical acclaim.BLUES REVUE stated, "Thirteen heartfelt cuts...played and sung with care and emotion." Tom Olson from the Blues Connection said, "Frank understands and plays the music authentically," and BIG CITY BLUES offered, "This is a player that would be welcomed on any porch, front or back!" Tickets are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door. If you have questions or comments about Cadenza, please feel free to contact Matt Fogg at foggmatthew@gmail.com or Alan Mooney at halanmooney@gmail.com.

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."

NotesIt all started back in the 20th century. It was the 1980s and hair metal bands ruled. The radio was jam packed with synthesized pop. Emerging hip-hop was all the rage. Thats when three teenage buddies decided it was a good time to start an American, roots-rock, blues band. They loved Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Muddy Waters and B.B. King. Their classmates didnt know what to make of them but they boogied anyway. Calling themselves Unfinished Business, Rob Babson, Dean Clegg and Troy R. Bennett started rocking high school dances, barbecues, band battles and all-night parties around their high school in Maine. After graduation they kept on playing but not together. Fate had other plans for them. For the next 30 years, each followed different paths through parallel lives of professional music-making.Now, after a three-decade hiatus, they're back together as the Unfinished Blues Band because theyre not done yet. They're still all about the basics: Swinging Drums, grooving bass lines and soulful guitar. Its all they need to make you dance, stomp and sing along. Babson's hands fly like lightning over his shining guitar strings. He wrings pathos and fury from its electrified, wooden body. Clegg, is the beating heart of the band. He hammers out tight rhythms on the drums with his brain and all four limbs. Bennett's fingers bring the bottom all the way to the top. His rumble-tumble bass lines never stop trucking. They all sing and you will, too. You wont be able to help yourself. Together, they've got nearly a hundred years of combined performing experience. As old friends, they're finding renewed energy in the music they make together. The spark is still alive and burning brighter than ever. Tickets are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door. www.unfinishedbluesband.com If you have questions or comments about Cadenza, please feel free to contact Matt Fogg at foggmatthew@gmail.com or Alan Mooney at halanmooney@gmail.com.
