Jeremy Wallace Trio

$20.00 Admission: BYOB:
Wallace
Jeremy Wallace is a blues, rock, singer/songwriter from New Jersey. He has performed at various venues on the East Coast, and has opened for artists such as Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond, and Freedy Johnston. Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song "Samson and Delilah" on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey.  Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he’s been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes (Tom Costagliola) and stand-up bass (Matt Gruenberg).   The best art is often dangerous, and Wallace’s art is dangerous in the same way Lou Reed is dangerous. He writes so well, he almost makes you believe his self-destructive lifestyle is a romantic deal.” -DON WILCOX

Swing Dance with the Tall Granite Big Band
Saturday, November 11, 2017: 8:00 PM
$20.00 Admission BYOB:
Tal Granite
From the syncopated heart of New Hampshire, the Tall Granite Big Band carries on its Swing tradition Texas style! Organized in Concord last year, the 18-member band has its roots in Texas with music collected over seven decades by the late Houston bandleader Johnny Dyson. The Dyson band’s early repertoire included classics from Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Perez Prado, Duke Ellington, Harry James, and other greats. But Dyson also worked closely with Texas arrang­ers including Don Elam and Fred Baetge, and over time his bands acquired unique material reflecting the vital “Third Coast” culture and its Blues and Latin influences, which help distinguish Tall Granite today. Today, our members are drawn from around the Granite State and our focus – as it was in Dyson’s day -- remains on dancing! Our Pitman’s Dance Nights typically are prefaced with a complimentary Swing dance lesson from area instructors to help everyone acquire or brush up their moves! So if you're done with dueling banjos or screaming guitars, grab your two-tone shoes, slick back that hair, join us at the excellent Pitman’s Freight Room and swing and sway or just relax to the Tall Granite Big Band's smokey horns and unique sound.

Free Swing Dance Lesson before the show from 7 – 8pm

A fundraiser for the American Red Cross
Story Slam
Story Slam
“Real Stories North Of Concord” presents a “StorySlam” as a fundraiser for the American Red Cross to help with their ongoing relief efforts for Hurricane victims. A “StorySlam” is where those interested in sharing a real-life, personal story based on the theme for the evening can register. Twelve storytellers will be selected at random and have up to six minutes to tell their story. (Not all who have a story will be picked if more than 12 names are entered). Stories can be funny, sad, inspirational or all three.

The theme for this Story Slam is: “Acts Of Kindness” and judging will be based on how close the story is to the theme, whether or not the storyteller stayed within the allotted time and other categories. There will be four judges, some of who will be selected at random from those in attendance. There will also be an audience favorite. Prizes will be awarded and a good time will be had by all.

“Storyslams” are hugely popular events across the country, but very few, if any, have been held North of Concord. The hope is to bring more of these extremely entertaining events to the Lakes Region and north.

Tickets are $20 and all net proceeds will go to benefit the American Red Cross. Those who are interested in telling a story can register in advance by sending their name to realstoriesnoc@gmail.com. (Registering does not guarantee that you will be picked.) Everyone must have paid admission to be participate. Seating is limited so call Pitman’s at 527-0043 for tickets.

More information on the StorySlam can be found on “Real Stories North Of Concord” Facebook page. More information on Camp Resilience can be found at prli.us.

Come and tell your story, or just sit back and be entertained by those who tell theirs.
