Jambase & Neighbor present: Into the Sun
JamBase and Neighbor are proud to present "Into The Sun", a three-day music event from September 9th through September 11th at Soundcheck Studios in Pembroke, MA.
Each night will feature three acts, with an extended running time of 7pm to Midnight.
Capacity is limited so don't hesitate to grab your tickets before it’s too late.
Please note this is a 21+ event, valid ID required.
Appearing all three nights will be Boston's own Neighbor featuring Richard James (vocals, keys), Lyle Brewer (guitar), Dan Kelly (bass), and Dean Johnston (drums).
Neighbor will perform in three unique configurations with special guests including a performance by the nine-piece Neighbor 9 on Friday 9/9.
Also appearing all three nights is Jennifer Hartswick with her full band Friday, her duo w/ Nick Cassarino on Saturday, and as artist-at-large on Sunday.
And we're also excited to present sets from The Nth Power, Club d'Elf, Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini Duo, and Duochrome over the weekend.
With a diverse catalog of hundreds of songs, the musical juggernaut Neighbor has become one of the most exciting and unpredictable live bands on the music scene today. Grown in large part by the passion and devotion of the fans called Neighbors, their symbiotic relationship inspires and touches every performance. The creation of childhood neighbors Richard James (vocals, keys) and Lyle Brewer (guitar), Neighbor combines ambitious composition, soulful balladry, and a fearless approach to their lengthy improvisations. The quartet is rounded out by Dan Kelly (bass) and Dean Johnston (drums) who fuel the groove and lay a solid foundation for Neighbor's "down home" sound. Come see what's good in the neighborhood.
Trumpeter and vocalist, Jennifer Hartswick is one of the most exciting performers in music today. She exudes confidence and joy and brings her own refreshing spirit to the stage every time she performs. Jennifer’s music is honest, soulful and comes with a maturity far beyond her years.
Hartswick is an original member of the Trey Anastasio Band and has recorded/shared the stage with Herbie Hancock, Phish, Christian McBride, Tom Petty, Aaron Neville, Carlos Santana, The Rolling Stones, Big Gigantic, Dave Matthews and countless others.
The Nth Power
The Nth Power believes in the healing power of music. This all-pro alignment of sharp and seasoned musical vets delivers a transcendent blend of soul, funk, rock and rhythm and blues with multi-part vocal harmonies and songs that inspire audiences to dance, groove, make love or just stand there with goose bumps.
The band's electric live performances have been flooring audiences ever since the group formed in New Orleans during an impromptu jam during Jazzfest nearly a decade ago. After an EP, studio album and two live albums, the band returned in 2021 in support of their second full-length studio release, Reverence, which was featured on the first-round nominations ballot for the 2022 Grammy Awards.
To the naked eye, Club d’Elf looks exactly like a world-class instrumental band: five or six fierce players laying down heavy grooves and exploratory solos on distinctive original material, as audience members dance or listen in rapt attention. To its fans, however, and its large and colorful cast of musicians, d’Elf is all that and much, much more.
Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini Duo
Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and Brazilian composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini have created a uniquely intimate duo collaboration, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition. The duo’s global take on music is largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of Faquini, with occasional lyrics penned by Cressman. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman & Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble.
Duochrome is a new project featuring compositions by longtime horn section partners saxophonist Jared Sims and trombonist Brian Thomas. The horn duo enlisted the services of their friends Amy Bellamy on keyboards, Nate Edgar on bass, Peter MacLean on drums and Steve Fell on guitar to form a super group to spend a day with Alan Evans at Iron Wax Studios in beautiful Western Massachusetts.
The session manifested six soulful funky tracks that draw comparisons to soul jazz originators like The Crusaders and the JB's as well as contemporaries like The Greyboy Allstars and John Scofield. Duochrome has partnered with Vintage League Music to release two singles, 'Good Time' and 'Duochrome' off their debut album "Sky View '' set to be released in September 2022.
