TIX AT https://www.eventbrite.com/e/chris-ross-the-north-wsgs-the-wolff-sisters-the-last-cavalry-tickets-48838379909 $5ADV $8DOOR

Chris Ross (2014 Portland Phoenix "Best Songwriter") spent the better part of a decade tucked away on the coast of Maine developing his voice as a writer. Inside the arsenal of tracks he’s penned, one finds dangerous, hard-hitting reflections; stories of love, life and longing, appealing because they’re so real. Tinted with an appetite for self-destruction, his writing style is smooth and eloquent while remaining sincere to genuine grit of experience.  The musicians forming his band, The North, provide a masterful blend of country + rock & roll swagger, a winning combination with Ross’s candid storytelling. Anchored by Ryan Curless (drums) and Caleb Sweet (bass), the rhythm section hits where you want it to, and hard – a fine tuned compatibility of artistic bonds reaching back to early childhood perceptible to the naked ear. Rounding out The North is guitarist Zachary Bence, a virtuoso with the ability to transition between ear-scorching guitar solos and beautiful sonic swells on the drop of a dime, his grace as a musician as boundless as his contribution to the band’s steady concord.
Join us as we welcome Chris Ross & The North for their Bayside Bowl debut.  Joining them on the night is the gritty and raw folk-rock outfit The Wolff Sisters & The Last Cavalry, who first broke into the Boston music scene as an acoustic trio. With haunting harmonies and songs reminiscent of washed up wanderers on New England’s salty coasts, Rebecca, Rachael, and Kat stole Boston’s heart as The Wolff Sisters (yes, they’re really sisters).  In 2015, the trio amplified their performance with the addition of The Last Cavalry. With Joe Soldati on bass and Will Rodriguez on drums, the band seeks to bring that loose blues, roots, and rock n’ roll sound back into the forefront of the music scene.  Don't miss this monster line up of outlaw country, roots and Americana.  The Show is ALL-AGES and tickets are $5adv, $8 at the door. Tickets are available at:

An Overnight Low w/Dead Gowns & Andrew Pelczar (Halloween Show!)

An Overnight Low w/Dead Gowns & Andrew Pelczar (Halloween Show!)

Bayside Bowl is proud to welcome back An Overnight Low to the Bayside stage.  Since their last show at the club, the band won the coveted "Best Rock Act," Portland Phoenix Music Award (2017).  The music of An Overnight Low is based on a journey that inspired a trilogy of travel albums. Delayed at Heathrow airport for nine hours and facing another six on my flight home for Christmas, Chad Walls pulled out the pictures, videos and interviews he collected over the past year while studying at The University of Manchester in England.  Over several cups of Costa coffee, he organized these scattered items in folders on his laptop while waiting for his flight.  The year of distance provided an objectivity allowing him to stitch together unrelated moments into common themes.  The collected events spoke with a new voice creating new stories.  On his return to the university after the holidays, he continued using spare time to travel around the UK.  En route, he continued to rearrange his travel artifacts.  On one particular trip he used a typical song format as a template.  He used journal notes and pictures he had taken at The Queen of Hearts pub on the corner of Oxford St. and Wilbraham Rd. in Manchester to create the song Sleeper.  The videos he made at The Castle Arms in Edinburgh yielded Trainspotting Extras.  The picture he took of sunlight glowing through a glass of beer at Teuchter’s pub in Leith inspired Smile.  He divided these songs into three albums named after the train stations he frequented most: Euston (2014), Piccadilly (2015), and Waverley (2016) and formed a band, An Overnight Low (Mac Coldwell, Chris Mayo, Sam Anderson, Mike Murphy) to help him record and perform them live. Rick Johnson of the Portland Press Herald says, “the resulting song cycle that makes up the album plays like a great road movie, and hits all the essential road movie bullet points along the way, including lost loves, fading friendships, loneliness tinged with excitement, travel in general and the characters one meets along the way on any journey.” Joining An Overnight Low on the night is Dead Gowns and Andrew Pelczar.

TIX ON SALE FRIDAY AUGUST 24TH!!!!

Billboard and radio chart topping, award-winning, international reggae-rock sensation Roots of Creation, are a touring powerhouse.  Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam and reggae-rock favorites like Camp Bisco, Gathering of The Vibes, California Roots, Jungle Jam and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offers up a high-energy, infectious live music experience. Their mix of reggae riddims, conscious lyrics, spirited horn lines, and electronic beats makes crowds move and has their loyal underground fan base (RoC Family) and street team (Universal Soldiers) travelling the distance to pack venues from coast-to-coast. Roots of Creation’s most recent release, Livin Free (2016), debuted No. 1 on both the Billboard Reggae and the Relix/Jambands.com Radio charts. Livin Free is a triple record that includes three versions of each song--studio, dub, and acoustic that features guest performances by Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman (Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars), the Rubblebucket horn section, Billy Kottage (Reel Big Fish), Grammy-nominated Pato Banton (Sting, UB40), and others. Additionally, the album welcomes guest production by Yeti Beats (Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid).

Now RoC has taken on a unique new project: Grateful Dub. Combining their longtime love for reggae-dub style music and the Grateful Dead, RoC reworked some of the world’s favorite Dead tunes into a new studio album. RoC had the pleasure of working in the studio with the legendary 5-time Grammy winner Errol Brown who was Bob Marley’s engineer and now Rebelution’s live sound engineer for this project. Grateful Dub is also being performed live in its entirety at festivals, theatres, and clubs around the country, and features rotating special guests including Melvin Seals (JGB), Scott Guberman (Phil Lesh) full horn sections, and others. Grateful Dub captures the spirit and magic of the Grateful Dead, while laying it down reggae-dub style.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/erin-harpe-the-delta-swingers-at-bayside-bowl-tickets-49389084080

Erin Harpe has been called “one of the most dynamic, talented and exciting roots rocking blues women on the scene” by Living Blues Magazine. Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers, her Boston Music Award-winning band, just released their second full-length album entitled BIG ROAD – out on VizzTone! The self-produced album highlights Erin’s diverse influences, from her roots in acoustic delta and piedmont blues, to her electric side – slide guitar, boogie blues, funk, and soul.

In the time since the band’s debut album Love Whip Blues (produced by Dave Gross) Erin and the band have been touring the country nonstop – honing their craft, and making plenty of new fans. They’ve driven countless miles (Erin behind the wheel) and had numerous adventures, and also (as you can imagine) trials, along the way. Subsequently, Erin has emerged into the limelight, taking on a more direct role as producer and playing lead guitar. Big Road is an apt name for her new, self-produced album. It describes where she and the band have been, traveling the highways and back roads, bringing people joy through their music. It’s also the name of Erin’s favorite Tommy Johnson song, “Big Road Blues”, the one that Billy Gibbons said he liked her arrangement of when she opened for ZZ Top!

“It’s the album I’ve always wanted to make,” explains Erin, “an authentic live-sounding set of songs, centered around my guitar playing, which is at the root of my music – from acoustic finger-picking, to electric slide guitar, to wah-wah fueled funk, with a few guitar solos thrown in.” The album was recorded (and mixed) in just 6 days by Pete Weiss at Verdant Studio, during a snowstorm in southern Vermont, and features Jim Countryman on bass guitar and ukulele bass, Matt “Charles” Prozialeck on harmonica, and Kendall Divoll on drums and percussion, with a little organ and accordion added by their friend Michael Casavant.

  • International Blues Challenge Semi-finalists (2017, 2013, 2011)
  • Boston Music Award Winners “Blues Act of the Year” (2012)
  • Boston Blues Challenge Competition Winners (2015, 2014, 2012, 2010)
  • Boston Music Award nominees (2012, 2011, 2010)
  • Recognized along with Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, Shemekia Copeland, Rory Block, and Ana Popovic in Alternate Route Magazine's “30 Woman Burning Up the Blues”

“As a young girl, Annapolis, Maryland–native Erin Harpe learned the blues literally at the feet of the African American blues players of the Washington, D.C. acoustic scene. Her father, visual artist and guitarist Neil Harpe, was a mainstay at the famed Archie’s Barbershop where he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Archie Edwards, John Cephas, Phil Wiggins and John Jackson. Erin grew up as a friend to all, picking up the true blues from early on. Her father, Neil, is internationally renowned among guitarists as a Stella expert and “purveyor of fine old time guitars.” –Frank Matheis, Living Blues Magazine

Xander Nelson & Leaders Of The Shift

Xander Nelson has quickly become one of the most sought after artists in the New England area.  He has garnered quite the buzz after releasing his debut EP "A Dull Roar" in 2017.  His brand of blues infused indie-pop rock has helped him build a solid following as well as some serious fan loyalty.  Joining him on this heavy hitting double bill is New York City's Leaders Of The Shift.  Individually the members of Leaders of the Shift are highly sought-after musicians who’ve recorded and toured the world with a variety of music icons. Together John Shannon (vocals/guitar), MJ Lambert (drums) and Ben Geis (bass) craft earth-shattering anthemic rock with vibrant depth and a forceful punch. The powerhouse trio’s defiant yet atmospheric sound is perfectly captured on its debut 7th Direction where “Kobra” the first single received it’s world premiere on Loudwire. “Dreams” the second single off of 7th Direction was named Number 5 Song Of The Year on Lima Peru’s top rock radio station Radio Doble Nueve out of a list of 150 international mainstream acts. The Huffington Post premiered the video for the third single “Consecrate” and reported, “Together, the music and the video provide a spiritual aura that is subtle, unpredictable and claims no specific religious color. But still, it’s there, like a curious field of suppressed energy. It’s almost shamanistic.” The album was recorded at Brooklyn’s Mission Sound and Manhattan’s JRock Studios produced by Jamie Siegel (Taking Back Sunday, Santana).  Don't miss this fantastic evening of guitar driven original indie rock!

Muddy Ruckus On The Roof!

8:00 PM20:00

Muddy Ruckus On The Roof!

Muddy Ruckus is a punk blues rock duo from Portland, Maine. The stripped down power duo features guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl. The band blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit and is known for a full rock band sound, despite that they're a duo. They season their music with the salt of the eastern old ports, backroad electric grooves, and the mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up. The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus "Darkly Inventive Americana". In April 2016, Muddy Ruckus was awarded "Best in State of Maine" by the New England Music Awards. 
Muddy Ruckus' sophomore album "Pretty Bones" released in June 2016 and was named "Album of the Year" from Red Line Root's. Erika and Ryan worked on this album for 8 months in 2015 with limited rehearsal space, developing most of the album on the road, at shows and in the studio. The duo is now officially born, and the hints of rock layered over folk and old timey music on 'Pretty Bones' are only soft reflections of what's to come from Muddy Ruckus. The lyrics call for your attention and the soul-fullness of both Erika and Ryan's vocals draw in the salt and shadow of the bands murky beginnings and luminous future.  Muddy Ruckus released their third album 'Bellows To Mend' on June 1st, 2018. The album was recorded at The Bulkhead in Scarborough, Me and mastered at Gateway Mastering in Portland, ME and was received with wide critical acclaim.  Join us as we welcome one of Maine's hottest musical exports to the Bayside Bowl roof for the first time!

Phantom Vanity (NYC) w/s/g JanaeSound

PHANTOM VANITY is an electrifying band creating waves in the NYC music scene. Inspired by funk, folk, and soul, this brand new sound is about bringing truth, love, and inspiration through music. The group’s debut EP Vintage Slacker was released last year and is composed of 7 tracks that speak to the trials and growth that humans endure on this small planet.  "I am singing about how we travel through all these self-inflicted barriers that make us afraid, lonely, and spiteful. How we mature and become comfortable and fair to ourselves, how we learn to love ourselves and love others," says venerable frontwoman BOYD. "I hope to sing songs that are empowering.”  Based out of Brooklyn PHANTOM VANITY is the musical vision of Boyd (Big Daddy Kane, The Nth Power), Walt Williams (Joe Thomas, FloRida, Daley), Rodney Flood (Todd Carey, Matt Simons), Henry Ramon (Chris Turner & Human Resource, Gin Wigmore), and Kyle Miles (Nick Hakim, Marcus Strickland). They met through various musical circles over the years in NY and slowly gravitated toward each other before making the golden decision to become a band. Since then they have been performing throughout the NorthEast and establishing roots in the city that never sleeps.  The Vintage Slacker EP brought together a mighty collection of tremendous talents. It is a celebration of friendships,  some of which span over 18 years. Featuring: Dmitry Gorodetsky (Charlie Puth), Nigel Hall (Lettuce), Elenna Canlas (Sinkane, Big Everything), Rodney Flood, Joel Fuentes (RYNO), Steven Padin and Joey Secchiaroli (Kindo), Rob Lewis (Christina Aguilera), Weedie Braimah (Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah), Bryan Morton (John Lindahl), Louis Cato (Lucius, Bobby Mcferrin), Corey Bernhard (Killiam Shakespeare, Snarky Puppy), Reuben Cainer (Big Yuki, Animus Rexx),  Henry RamonJames Casey (Meghan Trainor, Trey Anastasio Band, Animus Rexx), Matt Owens (Mean Girls Original Broadway Cast) and Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power, Jennifer Hartswick) who is also serves as a co-writer on most of the EP. Currently they are in the studio preparing for their next release which will feature all  five band members with some surprise guests to create something magical. 

Joining Phantom Vanity on the night is JanaeSound.  JanaeSound harnesses an unforgettable voice that is known to stir the soul. The powerhouse rock singer hails from St. Louis where she began cultivating her love for music at the tender age of 9 through the Opera Theatre of St. Louis. Known for her laser focus and unshakeable drive, JanaeSound was unsurprisingly tapped to open for FloRida alongside hometown hero Allen Gates this past summer at the St. Charles Family Arena. Locally, JanaeSound has clocked over 30 shows since her debut performance in Portland at the 2nd Annual Soul Revue at Portland House of Music and Events (July 2017). You’ve seen her at Empire, One Longfellow Square, Port City Music Hall, Heart Soul & Substance Festival, Blue for “Ladies in Blue” (a shared residency with Renée Coolbrith, 2nd Mondays at 6P), and Sunaana Winter Music Festival. Featured in Down East Magazine and seen in MaineToday, JanaeSound has zero plans of slowing down anytime soon.  Join us for this very special evening as we welcome two power house divas to the stage for one awesome night of music!  The show is ALL AGES, FREE, and starts at 8pm.

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:

Rooftop + Beats: Sea Level (aka Dan Capaldi) & The Memorial Skylight

Sea Level & The Memorial Skylight remains an ever changing, polymorphous presentation of obsessively arranged sample based music from the heart and soul of Maine based music producer Dan Capaldi. 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:
