Last week we featured an article about local music promoter, musician, and all around nice guy, Lucas Gallo. This week we take aim at ‘Go Local Music’ founder, president, and CEO... Mark Trottier. If you are a part of the local music scene in New Hampshire, you have seen Mark at shows, putting on shows, playing shows, hitting on farm animals and setting up sound for shows. His organization, Go Local Music, puts on a few local festivals a year. These festivals feature some of the best local bands from around Concord. This past year they most famously held Camp and Jam Four and Camp Captain Crunchy. Each event had tons of bands, camping and beer. This year Go Local Music is putting on Camp and Jam V!!!(The V stands for awesome in case you fail Roman numerals). This year’s Camp and Jam features twice the bands, three times the days and I would assume lots more beer.

If you are involved in the music scene in Concord NH, you know Lucas Gallo. You have seen him walking around in his little fancy hat, smoking a smoke, drinking a drink and skipping a skip. He books music shows at a few local venues; Penuche’s and True Brew. He also co hosts a radio show every other week on WNHN-LP 94.7 FM promoting local music in and around Concord NH. On top of all of that he runs Concord Music Scene on Facebook, a page that lists all the local gigs around town. If that wasn’t enough he also use to play in the band The Jamantics and still plays out on solo guitar. Geesh. Know what else? He owns a pig farm where each pig is taught to play guitar by 6 weeks of age (ok that is a lie). OK, well.. you might be wondering “what is the point of this article!” Are we just listing a bunch of stuff that Lucas does? NOOOOOO.. We are listing 5 things that you can DO TO LUCAS.

Whatever happened to the beloved bass chord? You will not find bass chords in the music coming out today. Well, not entirely true, you have to search for it. There are still select few bands that have a bass player good enough to throw one in there but it also depends on the song. Most of these bands however you will only find on Sirius/XM’s Jam band station. The modern band (you’ve heard them: Hollywood produced, over use of effects, very polished, use of auto tune) of today are lucky if the bass player even has a major role in the song let alone throwing in some killer bass lines and a chord on occasion.
