The Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA is built in 1916; the historic Regent Theatre remains true to its roots as a vibrant vaudeville house. The Regent is an intimate 500-seat performing arts center with superior acoustics and comfortable seating.

Coalition for Courage
Coalition for Courage (C4C) is a small nonprofit organization based in Jamaica Plain. The mission is to help needy children, especially those affected by HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, by providing health, education and welfare services.
In the past 10 years, C4C helped feed over 1,000 orphans in Zimbabwe and have provided educational support to between 30-100 children each year They sent 18 to university or technical skills programs, and of these 18, 15 are gainfully employed (this is a very big deal in a country where the unemployment rate is upwards of 80%). C4C also sponsors income-generating projects to help children find a legal and safe means of being independent. Wire crafts made by children will be for sale at the event. Because the co-founders volunteer all their time, there is very little overhead. Almost every dollar goes directly to children.
His sound has been described as having a rich vintage vibe while having a firm appreciation of AM rock, pop and big hooks. He is notable as being the winner of the 2006 Boston Music Awards for Best Male Singer-Songwriter, an award he received again in 2009. Legendary Boston musician Will Dailey will headline the event. With uncontainable charisma and energy, he’s won over audiences supporting Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews Band at their historic Farm Aid benefit concerts. In addition, Dailey will soon be heard collaborating with Stephen King and Mellencamp on a highly anticipated project produced by T BoneBurnett.
Autumn Hollow is a Boston based roots rock four-piece formed in the fall of ’07. Autumn Hollow has played over one hundred shows in some of the best venues in New England including: The Paradise Rock Club and Higher Ground. In addition to the continued support of their fans Autumn Hollow Band continues to receive critical praise, musikkbloggen writes, “Like a little cross between Whiskey Town and Uncle Tupelo as these guys caught me right away from the opening track “Focus On Rent”.
A mix of power pop and alternative, dripping with hooks & harmonies and layers of sound. That’s the best way to sum up the music of the Rationales.
