Local Bands You Should Check Out

Sometimes it is hard to find new local bands to check out. Who are you gonna trust on if a band sucks or not before you pay your hard earned money on a cover charge.

• Michael Crane- Drums captain chet/another sunny day--

Pat and the Hats are bringing back rocking well constructed SONGS. Can't wait to see what they have in store. https://www.facebook.com/patrikgochezofficial

• Drew Hines- Percussionist and international man of mystery from the band Tyler Road--

I recommend checking out Donkilo Afro Funk Orkestra. They are all seasoned musicians which blend many unique styles and genres of music to create something truly unique. https://www.facebook.com/donkiloafrofunk

• Glenn Moir- bassist for Acoustisaurus.--

"You should check out The 123's because they get inside your head" https://www.facebook.com/the123s

• Scott Solsky -- Executive Director, Granite State Music Festival--

Check out Pat and the Hats because they are fabulous musicians and the songwriting is first class. They are also energetic and are great to see live. https://www.facebook.com/patrikgochezofficial

• Mark Trottier- Drums with Ghost Dinner, Founder Go Local Music, Bassist Captiain Chet--

we recently played a show with The Youngest Sun from Peterborough, NH. Super tight funk jams that will keep your ass shaking. Very entertaining.

• Ron Noyes of the Ron Noyes Band --

I am really into Josh Craggy's new band, "Laid to Dust." Roots based, dirty, great melodies and songs. They opened up at a Penuche's show and I dug it a ton. Check 'em... https://www.facebook.com/laidtodust

• Brian Coombes - Rocking Horse Studio--

You should check out Will Kindler because he is a gifted songwriter with one of the most amazing voices you will ever hear.

• Steve McBrian - Bass/Vocals/Most Famous/Coolest/Not Oldest guy: for The Crunchy Western Boys --

Well...they're not exactly local, but I like the Van Burens! They let me participate in their crazy Van Buren games, and they continue to talk to me long after my facial recognition software fails due to the Y2K virus. Or, more accurately, over medication and/or too damn many sips off the mother vodka teat... I mean, C'mon! What's not to like? They put on a pretty fun show too! See them, along with us, at Jerry Jam this weekend!! Bath, NH! https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Van-Burens/199515886749215

• Paige Califano, songstress of The Dwells--

we love We Avalanche. With vocals, guitar, cello, and a mix Mando and viola, the three piece band blends scapes of Eliot Smith and symphonic sounds. https://www.facebook.com/weavalanche

• Jeoff Jarnot - bassist for the Joint Chiefs --

Dusty Grays voice alone carries the volume of a full orchestra. Add his band members and they're like a freight train running down the tracks. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dusty-Gray/225834534110431

• Bobby Rice - Drummer and backup vocalist for Pat and the Hats -

They've been around, but I still stick by the Amorphous Band. Forget they are an extremely talented band for a second; George Laliotis is a sight to behold. His mastery of the drum kit is thundering. And to boot, he sings James Brown and Michael Jackson to the t!

• Matthew Ghelli- Otolaryngologist for Boogie On Alice:

I urge you to check out Ghost Dinner Band. They are equal parts exciting, entertaining & frightening. https://www.facebook.com/GDB123

• Mari Winings--

Will Kindler - He will be playing at the Capital Center for the Arts in August. He played pedal steal/sang on my E.P., is a fantastic song writer and musician, and his new Album "Marrow" is phenomenal! https://www.facebook.com//pages/Will-Kindler/151943031507220

• Elissa Williamson-promotions coordinator for Whiskey Kill -

I think people should check out Laid to Dust. They opened last Friday for Lenny Lashley at Sony's Tavern, and I was impressed with how these young guys blended different roots instruments so that the music had the eclectic rebel folk sound but it also had a catchy melody and stellar vocals. https://www.facebook.com/laidtodust
