Last Days of August

Erik Vanderwall is returning to Mock Crest on Thursday, August 30th, at 7 p.m. with his classical blues sound. His truly soothing sound melts away the stress of the work week. Enjoy a Jolly Green Giant, and the summer weather before we move into September.

David Brothers

David Brothers and his band bring the Americana Blues to the tavern Friday, August 31st at 9 p.m. Here’s a few quotes that will speak for themselves. “Guitar Playing is Masterful and Precise, song writing is brilliant.”… Blues Notes Magazine

…”An Americana testament that would bring a smile to folk/bluegrass legend Doc Watson”… New Haven Advocate

Visit here to listen to a few tunes before Friday evening.

Sidestreet Reny performs September 1st, at 9 p.m. The band consists of two members, Reny and Bell, who have played together for 14 years. Their sound brings a blend of bluesy funk  pre-war blues, roots and folk music birthing their own sound. They’re sure to pack the house with their unique sound, mixing a touch of reggae when you’re least expecting it. Reny’s raspy voice is strongly complimented with Bell’s smooth and melodic sound. “Money Blues” became a fast fave of mine, and “Fade” a close second.
