For over 40 years Boston has had a love affair with Joe Jackson and Elvis Costello. Maybe it’s the combination of smart and ironic lyrics with impeccable musicianship, or the willingness to explore multiple genres, but their music has always resonated with fans in this town. And it’s more than a long string of memorable concerts: the two English songwriters have had a profound influence on the development of many Boston artists.

This is what makes this show a little different from a traditional tribute show: this is an opportunity for some of the city’s best and most beloved musicians to pay tribute to two artists who have shaped and influenced their music. This relationship is also reflected in the song selection. You will hear a lot of the hits, but you will also hear some choice deep cuts from the extensive catalogs of these great artists.


Dee Zaster and The Designated Drivers with Special Guest Tommy Dempsey

Dee Zaster and The Designated Drivers will play the music of Elvis Costello.  Dee Zaster will play guitar. The Designated Drivers for the evening will be: Tony Savarino (The Savtones, Ruby Rose Fox) on guitar, Sean McLaughlin (Jenee Halstead, Savtones, Mark Lipman) on bass, Mike Levesque (David Bowie, Seven Mary Three) on drums and Peter Moore (Tanya Donnelly, John Powhida International Airport, and more) on keyboards and vocals.

Special guest Tommy Dempsey is a singer, songwriter and a veteran of the Boston music scene. As front man for international rock bands SuperZero and In The Pink, he released three records in Europe and Japan, touring Japan with SuperZero, and scoring a major regional radio hit with In The Pink’s song “Under Summer Skies”. His latest solo album, Eleven-Eleven is available on all streaming platforms, and he is now at work on a new solo project.


John Powhida and Friends

John Powhida and Friends will play the music of Joe Jackson. John Powhida has won the 2011 Boston Rock’n’Roll Rumble with his band John Powhida International Airport, and was also known as the lead singer in the Rudds. A sought after vocalist, after opening for his musical hero Todd Rundgren in the 1990s, he recently has been a featured vocalist for Todd Rundgren’s Utopia. He has also backed Graham Parker and played on his latest single.

The hardest working man of the night will be Peter Moore on keyboards and vocals. Peter leads Boston band Count Zero and was also at the helm of the legendary Boston Music award winning Think Tree . Peter toured as a performer internationally as a member of Blue Man Group’s touring band. Bassist Jim Haggerty has performed onstage with peter Wolf and performs regularly with many of Boston’s top songwriters including Dennis Brennan and Kimon Kirk. Charles Hansen should be familiar to concert goers as the leader of his own original band Gymnasium and as a member of the very popular Handymen and Rock Bottom. Drummer Andy Plaisted can be found nearly every night of the week in a Boston club, providing his ace drumming to the likes of Tim Gearan, the Giant Kings, the White Owls and Amy Correia.
