Welcome Paul Cataldo to Mock Crest Tavern

Paul CJoin Mock Crest Tavern Tuesday, August 12, and welcome Paul Cataldo! Paul is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and is currently touring across the country. You will enjoy his combination of Americana, Roots, Country and Appalachian music. The music begins at 8:00 p.m.

Paul has played since the age of fourteen when he heard Neil Young. His music became his sanctuary while growing up and he utilized musicians including John Fogerty, Lindsay Buckingham and David Gilmour as music teachers. After years of practice he found himself playing lead with “ShortBus” a Boston based cover band.

It didn’t take long before he grew tired of playing other people’s music and relocated to New York and began writing his own music.

Paul sings songs that tell stories about a little of everything including alcoholism, war, poverty and jealousy as well as peace and love.  His first full length LP “Rivers, Roads & Mountains” was released in 2009 and has received steady airplay on college stations. Paul recorded the LP at Quad Studios in Nashville in the same room Young recorded his breakthrough record “Harvest”.  Some of Nashville’s best known session players appear throughout the album as well as long time music companions Tony Montalbano and Eben Pariser of Roosevelt Dime.

Hope you are enjoying the full service seating out back. Portland has been full of sunny, clear and hot days, but no matter what the weather is outside, Mock Crest Tavern always has what you need. August continues to heat up with new music all month-long. Before we know it Labor Day will arrive and school will begin again. So enjoy it while you can!

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
