FREE COPIES OF LIVE SCISSORMEN SWISS FEST CD w/ VIP TICKETS TO REGENT THEATRE EVENT
On Thursday, November 17 at 7pm, the debut “Regent Roots ‘n’ Blues Revue” will be presented by the Powerhouse Breakout Artist Series and the historic Regent Theatre—“Arlington’s Show Place of Entertainment”—currently celebrating its 95th anniversary. The evening will kick-off with Ten Foot Polecats. Then, after a set by Peter Parcek 3, Nashville, Tennessee’s Scissormen will close-out the bill at this exclusive concert event. Expect and all-star jam finale and other extras!
This internationally touring duo of former Bostonians Ted Drozdowski (guitar) and Matt Snow (drums) brings the sounds of the Mississippi Delta and hill country’s juke joints to modern life. With four albums and a concert resume that includes Bonnaroo, Memphis in May, and France’s
Cognac Blues Passions, they are gaining a worldwide reputation for high-wire shows. The band also stars in award-winning roots filmmaker Robert Mugge’s latest feature-length documentary BIG SHOES: Walking and Talking the Blues.
World-class singer-instrumentalist Peter Parcek calls his approach “soul guitar,” an appellation that alludes to his playing’s depth of feeling and character, as well as its deepest roots in classic American music. But Peter’s sensibilities are equally attuned to the future, as his latest album The Mathematics of Love, which garnered a Best Debut Album nomination in the 2011 Blues Music Awards, attests. No less an authority than blues legend Buddy Guy has proclaimed Peter “as bad as Eric Clapton.”
TEN FOOT POLECATS
This trio from the Boston/Worcester area is rapidly ascending to the top of the dirty roots music scene currently rising out of the American underground. The latest album I Get Blamed For Everything I Do showcases a sound plucked from the juke joints of the Mississippi hills that transcends genre with its energy, imagination and peerless hot-rod execution. The sheer muscle, blood and heart of their live performances are captivating audiences from coast-to-coast.
