J. Geils needs no introduction around these parts. Producer, writer, and sports car restoration expert J. Geils is a rockin' master of the blues. Known for several huge classic hits and a soulful approach to the blues, J has now been nominated for the Rock Hall of Fame. Team him up with Jeff Pitchell & Texas Flood and you have a show not to be missed!
Jeff has been blistering the paint off the walls of most clubs in the New England area for some years now and he is one of the hottest guitar slingers on the circuit, drawing comparisons to Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughn. His CD, Heavy Hitter, reached #7 on the Billboard Charts. Along with Texas Flood they tear up a rich mix of R & B, Rock, Soul and funky Texas Blues. Jeff Pitchell & Texas Flood have just won the Connecticut Musician/Band of the year (2011)!
Also on the bill is very special guest Gerry Beaudoin, who will add his own sassy guitar to the mix for a rare night of dance and frenzy. Together they will be playing some of the J. Geils Band hits as well as some of Jeff's songs, that have won international awards... and, will also be heard on their new CD to be released 3Q/2011!! Of course its blues, blues, blues..and rock, rock, rock!!!

Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, the music of Luísa Maita embodies the modern spirit of Brazil. She has been called the "New Voice of Brazil" by NPR and recently was recognized as Brazil's "Best New Artist" by the Brazilian Music Awards, the equivalent of a GRAMMY. Inspired by the bustling urban life found in her native city of São Paulo, her music has a contemporary vibe with influences from alternative pop and downtempo electronic music melded with an acoustic foundation deeply rooted in samba, bossa nova and MPB. Hailing from a country overflowing with musical talent, Luísa Maita rises above the fray as one of the most promising young singers of her generation.
