Balkun Brothers w/s/g Xander Nelson

Balkun Brothers w/s/g Xander Nelson

Internationally touring rock n’ roll band, Balkun Brothers, is made up of older brother, Steve, on guitar, vocals and thumb-bone bass, alongside younger brother, Nick ‘The Hammer’ on drums. The band, formed just under a decade ago in 2010, is reinventing the term “power duo” with their heavy hitting, new-age brand of psychedelic rock, blues and jam-funk.  Known for their explosive live shows that go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye, the brothers from Hartford grew up studying the likes of Son House, Johnny Winter, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters, then smashing those together with Motorhead, Primus, Rage Against the Machine, The Doors, Motley Crue and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In a day and age where the world is in dire need of true rock n’ roll, the Balkun Brothers are bringing the people what they want: hard-nosed, dirty, mammoth sounds that have been invading the ear-holes of fans from coast to coast across the globe and changing lives one head bang at a time. Following in the footsteps of their delta-blues, rock and metal forefathers, Steve and Nick are crushing stages of upwards of 250 shows per year. Known for marathon concerts that can last up to 5 hours, the two brothers have been developing a sound that few can compare to or even attempt to comprehend.Steve’s self-built, custom baritone and resonator guitars are on full throttle from the first note he plays each night on stage through BOTH his guitar and bass amps simultaneously, while Nick’s thunderous drum beats meet his brother at center stage for one colossal monster truck of a band. Their shattering low end has been catching the eyes of many who can’t seem to understand how a duo can make so much noise.  Balkun Brothers take the White Stripes and the Black Keys and flips them upside down with a musical range that spans into hip hop and funk fusion without missing a beat. Audiences are left speechless at live shows that serve up smashed guitars, dinosaur-like power and lyrical content that is more relevant in today’s society than ever before. Joining them on the night is Portland's indie blues rock sensation, Xander Nelson.  FOR MORE INFO PLEASE VISIT:

WIth a tendency towards moody electro-triphop grooves and classic pop sensibility, the style of Sea Level is irrelevant; a bi-product of a specific, yet unlimited intention. Combining both live and sample based looping as well as a unique assortment of live instrumentation, sounds are creatively mixed together using an elaborate collection of gear with no need for a laptop.  For more info please visit:

LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike is the project and performance moniker of Rhode Island-based songwriter William Orchard.  By the time LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike had gained a reputation of prolific lunacy and a non-traditional, whimsical approach to folk music, he had become part a larger circle of artists (including The Brazen Youth) in New England known as the Ashlawn Creative Collective – located at the 300 year old Ashlawn Farm in the small town of Lyme, CT, where he recorded his first album. Following years of extensive touring of the U.S. in band and solo settings, LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike’s discography consists of 99 EP’s and Albums, totaling nearly 500 songs. Orchard’s 100th record, Big Blue Butterflies is a story of the painful transformation from child to adult, fantasy to reality, and the limbo in the middle – all within the context of chaotic America in 2018. We are more than thrilled to welcome this unique songwriter to the Roof!  Joining him on the bill is Miles Hewitt, best known as a member of the Boston indie rock sensations the Solars.  Don't miss this heavyweight acoustic evening of music performed by prolific songwriters!  For more info please visit:

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra w/ QUAD
Jul

8:00 PM20:00

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra w/ QUAD

Multi-instrumentalist and composer Jonathan Scales is likely the most innovative steel drummer on the planet. His stunning, virtuosic technique is obvious and apparent to any who have seen him perform, but it is his mesmerizing compositions and tasteful, avant-garde improvisation that set him apart from the pack. Scales’ unmistakably unique approach to an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropicalia establishes him as something of an outlier. Whereas his talent and creativity could have been focused on other instruments he plays, such as saxophone, he fell in love with the sound of the steel pans. He may also have unconsciously seen it as a challenge… to transform the instrument in much the same way that his musical inspiration Bela Fleck did with the banjo. In fact, Driftwood Magazine made a similar observation, when it wrote that “Scales is to steel pans what Béla Fleck is to the banjo—an über innovator.” Jonathan Scales Fourchestra has a fluid line-up, allowing Jonathan to work with a wide range of artists, and in the past few years he has earned the respect of some of the most impressive players across multiple genres. The Fourchestra’s November 2016 tour of the Southeast is a prime example of this, showcasing bass wizardMonoNeon (Prince), drummer Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy) and percussionist Weedie Braimah (The Nth Power). As with the tours, Scales’ recordings have also featured special guest performances from the likes of Victor WootenHoward LevyJeff Coffin and Kofi Burbridge.  With an ear for myriad global sounds, it only makes sense for Jonathan Scales Fourchestra to expand beyond North America. They toured Central America, the Caribbean, Japan and Europe in the Fall of 2015, and a performance in The Netherlands landed them a spot on the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival in the Summer of 2016, which anchored another tour of Europe.   Jonathan Scales Fourchestra makes their Portland, ME debut at Bayside Bowl on JULY 20.  Joining them on the night is the eclectic cello/drum duo, QUAD.

Rooftop Concert Series: Joel Thetford & Friends

Raised in the shadow of Billy Bob's, one of Texas's legendary honky tonks, Joel Thetford grew up listening to the sounds of classic country radio and the wide variety of rock and roll, blues, and folk music that the Texas scene provided. His career as a bull-rider landed him eventually in Stephenville, where the Texas Country scene was booming. With acts like Gary Stewart, Jerry Jeff Walker,  The Great Divide, Jerry Lee Lewis, Robert Earl Keen, making regular stops in town, those were Joel's earliest and strongest influences as he began writing songs.  Joel has become a fixture in the songwriting community, and has shared the stage with such acts as The Alternate Roots, Chris Ross and the North, The Mallett Brothers Band, North of Nashville, The Ghosts of Johnson City, Dark Hollow Bottling Company, Jake Hill & Deep Creek, and many more.  Joel's debut EP  "Here I Go" was released in the summer of 2015.  Joel's new EP "The Outer Bank" was recorded in December of 2016 by Jonathan Wyman at The Halo, and mastered by Grammy award winning Dave Collins in Los Angeles.  Recently, Thetford released a new album, entitled Broken Things, which has been released to wide critical acclaim.  Join us for this very special acoustic performance.

Jamaican legends! THE SKATALITES w/s/gs Zeme Libre

FOR ADVANCE TIX: Please go to:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/skatalites-with-special-guests-zeme-libre-tickets-45003516730

ALL AGES - 8PM - $20

The Skatalites began performing in Jamaica in May 1964. The group was so hot that their first rehearsal became a show. So many people had lined up outside the venue, they decided to just charge admission and let everybody in! They were the top musicians on the island at the time, having come together after playing in different bands and on various recording sessions. These records were made to be played at the many competing sound systems around the island. The band became legendary, backing all the developing artists of the day, such as Toots and The Maytals, Prince Buster and “The Wailing Wailers” featuring Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. These groups were all recording on the new beat called ska, which had an infectious rhythm that was catching on like wildfire. Eventually, the beat slowed down into rocksteady, and then reggae. This wildfire spread unstoppably around the world, developing into a huge musical tree with many stylistic branches, including lovers rock, dub, dancehall/ ragga, ska-punk,, and others. Hugely popular groups, like The Police, The Clash, The Specials, The English Beat, Sublime and No Doubt, all have their roots firmly planted in the music of The Skatalites.  Since reforming after an almost 20 year hiatus in 1983, and beginning regular touring as a unit in 1989, they have not stopped thrilling audiences in every corner of the globe. Even after more than 50 years, and various lineup changes as members leave one stage for another, the band continues to perform and record new music in the inimitable Jamaican style, like only they can. The road has been long and hard, and sadly, seen most of the original members pass on. Often asked “when will you stop?” and “how do you keep doing it after all these years?”, the answer is simple: never – It’s the love of the music and the way our fans respond that keep us going Forward!  Featuring original vocalist Doreen Shaffer, along with the current lineup of outstanding musicians they have chosen to accompany them, the band proudly presents live the music of Jamaican Ska. Forever indebted to the inspiration and talent of: Roland Alphonso, Lloyd Brevett, Don Drummond, Jerome “Jah Jerry” Haynes, Lloyd Knibb, Tommy McCook, Donat “Jackie” Mittoo, John “Dizzy Johnny”Moore, and Lester Sterling, collectively known as The Skatalites.  Joining them on the night are Portland's favorite afro-fusion reggae funk act, Zeme Libre.

Truth Virus Records Presents...Revibe & Sassquatch

Truth Virus Records Presents...Revibe & Sassquatch

Revibe:
Revibe is comprised of four people who share a passion for music and happened to be in the right place at the right time (in the form of a chicken wing delivery service). They are often described as a “jam band,” which is accurate given the tendency for exploratory improvisation. To make the assumption that they can be easily compared to any number of prominent groups dubbed with this title, however, is quite misleading. Their genre and style is hard to pin down as it changes show to show and song to song as the band members’ diverse musical tastes and backgrounds, drawn from experiences in both listening and playing, shine through. In addition to their unique approach to musical exploration, they take great care in their composition and carefully craft their material to provide familiar islands in a sea of improvisation. Whether previously sculpted or created in the moment, expect to hear everything from jazz to trance, funk to rock or any fusion of their varied collection of genres. One thing is sure, you’ll always end up dancing.

Dedication to keeping their setlists fresh and always writing new material makes them worth catching when the opportunity arises. Emerging as an upcoming force in the Northeast live music scene, Revibe strives to define the sum of hard work, dedication, and passion for the sonic arts. Still fresh off the release of their debut studio album Stitched In Fiction, the band continues to expand their touring territory to provide their growing fanbase with new material, and will do so as long as inspiration guides the way. The band always celebrates returning to their home base of Burlington, Vermont, where a dedicated and ever-expanding following gathers regularly to help battle the Cratch and celebrate the vibe. But what is the Cratch, you ask? Come to a performance and find out for yourself…

Sassquatch is the missing link between funk, fusion, jazz, soul, rock and pop. With dynamic vocal work, technical guitar proficiency, and rhythmic precision, Sassquatch works diligently to make believers out of their audience. Have you seen Sassquatch?

Formed in 2015, Sassquatch has been performing and writing consistently. With the release of their first EP titled “Sassquatch”, they saw success throughout Maine and found a home at Blue in Portland for their monthly residency. Since the release of their first full-length album “Cryptomusicology”, they have toured New England encouraging people in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York City to “get sassy”! Much like the cryptids that inspire them, they’re music is an amalgam of genres, styles, and new sonic exploration routed in a love for the groove. Sassquatch is dedicated to bringing an energized show of music that not only makes you think, but makes you dance! Tell all your friends that you saw Sassquatch.

“They have achieved that rare perfect balance of danceable grooves, sophisticated musicality, and compelling stage presence." - Richard Nelson, Professor of Music, Jazz and Contemporary Music Program, University of Maine at Augusta

“Having worked with Sassquatch in both live and academic settings, it is apparent that this group is highly prolific and constantly interested in testing out new sounds and material." - Sean Morin, Producer/Lecturer in Music
