Upcoming Events

The Roots

Rap/Hip Hop
Philadelphia-based group The Roots showed the way for live rap, building on Stetsasonic's "hip-hop band" philosophy of the mid-'80s, by focusing on live instrumentation at their concerts and in the studio. The band is featured nightly on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." The show increased their fame and soon Grammy awards, movie gigs and book deals were offered to many members of the band.

Psychedelic Furs

Rock, Alternative
The Psychedelic Furs, whose name belies their punk-influenced music, were formed in England in 1977 by brothers Richard and Tim Butler, along with saxophone player Duncan Kilburn and guitarist Roger Morris. By the time they released their self-titled debut album in 1980, the group had become a sextet, adding guitarist John Ashton and drummer Vince Ely. That album reached the Top 20 in England. "Talk Talk Talk" of 1981 reached the U.S. Top 100. "Forever Now" (1982) saw the band reduced to a quartet with the departure of Kilburn and Morris. The rest moved to the U.S., turned to producer Todd Rundgren, and scored a U.S. Top 50 hit with "Love My Way." Ely then left, and the remaining trio of the two Butlers and Ashton made "Mirror Moves" (1984), the biggest Psychedelic Furs hit yet. They reunited in 2000.

Amos Lee

R&B/Soul, Folk, Blues
Taking inspiration from soul greats, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, and folk legends, John Prine and Dave Van Ronk, Amos Lee directs his music with a spirit and presence rooted in American tradition. Amos delivers a unique brand of folk-soul music that aims to unite, uplift, and inspire. The "folk" side is reflected in his nimble acoustic guitar playing and the intimacy of his live performances. The "soul" strain comes through in the engaging song-poetry of his lyrics and in what the Philadelphia Inquirer described as his "easygoing voice" and "raw, unedited emotion."

Dispatch
With Nahko & Medicine for the People
Rock
Known as a band that attained superstar live status completely on its own terms, the members of Dispatch – Brad Corrigan, Pete Heimbold and Chad Stokes – released album after album on their own Bomber Records label, steering clear of the major label system and selling more than 600,000 albums. In the process the trio became true indie pioneers, building an enormous, passionate fan base through the embrace of internet file sharing, word-of-mouth and constant touring.

Pink Martini

Jazz, Swing, Pop, Latin/Salsa, World
Pink Martini was formed in 1994 by aspiring Portland politician Thomas Lauderdale, who got the idea to provide more entertaining, uplifting music at political functions for causes such as civil rights, education, public broadcasting and more. A year later, Lauderdale called on former Harvard classmate China Forbes to join the band, and together they began writing songs together for the "little orchestra." Since then, the group has been known for drawing its inspiration from a myriad of sources, including romantic Hollywood musicals of the '40s and '50s, and a multilingual repertoire of diverse genres like jazz, Latin, lounge and classical, all shaken and stirred with cinematic influences, driving rhythms and exotic vocals. A typical Pink Martini concert spans the globe, from Cuban rumba and Parisian cafe tunes to Carnival disco.
