Just Announced- On Sale Now!

Jace Everett

Thursday, March 10th • 8:00 PM
The first thing many people think when the name Jace Everett gets mentioned is “Bad Things,” (theme of HBO’s hit series, TRUE BLOOD)…but listen to his album and hear him perform live and it won’t be the last! Everett’s music evokes the complex, vividly emotional and often over‐heated works of Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Jim Morrison and Marvin Gaye, among others, precisely because it so plainly springs from the same sources of inspiration, contradiction and risk. RED REVELATIONS, the new album , is a work of rare accomplishment and abandon, brimming with barely‐contained emotions and urges. The primal, penetrating power of Everett’s roots‐music fusion, revving up from insinuation to howling gale‐force rock in a second, has already started listeners wondering: So, where’ve you been, man? The answer is: Everywhere, and right in front of your nose.

David Mallett


Sunday, March 27th • 7:30 PM
Life in an out-of-the-way place carries universal import, and people everywhere seem to understand what David Mallett’s songs are about. Although they are rooted in place, they speak to the essential things that move us all. If you grow up in a small rural town, as Mallett did, you can’t help but learn its stories. He knows about the people who shouldn’t have stayed, but did, and those who shouldn’t have left, but did. He knows the factory work, the field work, the memories of summer dances, the loves and losses, and the stunning incidents of courage and despair.

Roomful of Blues

Friday, April 29th • 8:00 PM
Roomful of Blues, according to DownBeat magazine, “are in a class by themselves.” With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy, hard-edged blues and R&B, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them “the hottest blues band I’ve ever heard.” Since 1967, the group’s deeply rooted blend of swing, rock ‘n’ roll, jump, blues and soul has earned it five Grammy Award nominations and a slew of other accolades, including seven Blues Music Awards (one for Blues Band Of The Year in 2005). The band has been led since 1996 by guitarist Chris Vachon. Guitar Player says, “Vachon burns with explosive solos and a delightfully greasy sense of rhythm.” Roomful of Blues has always maintained its signature sound by boasting great musicianship and a stellar horn section—featuring tenor and alto saxophonist Rich Lataille, who first joined the band in 1970. Lataille’s masterful playing can evoke either the fat-toned honking sax of the glory days of early rock or the cool elegance of big band swing jazz.

Buffy Sainte-Marie


Friday, May 13th • 8:00 PM
Academy Award-winner Buffy Sainte-Marie was a graduating college senior in 1962 and hit the ground running in the early Sixties, after the beatniks and before the hippies. All alone, she toured North America’s colleges, reservations and concert halls, meeting both significant acclaim and huge misperception from audiences and record companies who expected Pocahontas in fringes, and instead were both entertained and educated with their initial dose of Native American reality in the first person.

Pousette-Dart Band

Friday, March 18th • 8:00 PM
Growing up in a household of artists, including his father, grandfather, and sister, Jon Pousette-Dart separated himself by picking up a guitar at the age of 10, and mapping out a life in music before he ever attended a little league game. He and best friend Jonathan Meredith (son of actor Burgess Meredith) proceeded to spend their teens learning every song they heard on the radio, and soon joined Soupy Sales’ two sons, Hunt and Tony, to become part of the teen sensation “Tony and the Tigers”. In 1973, Jon formed the Pousette- Dart Band with John Troy, his college mate from the University of Pacific, and new recruit John Curtis from Boston. The band became a mainstay on the Northeastern College circuit, as well as playing many concerts in the Boston area with the top acts of the era. In 1975 legendary promotion man Al Coury signed the group to Capitol.

Kaki King

Sunday, April 3rd • 7:30 PM

Espionage, particularly the idea of living a double life, was the basis for Kaki King’s brand-new, stunning album Junior. And like a tantalizing spy novel that’s full of surprises, Junior delivers twists-and-turns: lyrically from exuberance and anger to heartbreaking melancholy; and sonically from experimental pieces to accessible pop. While there is some of the dazzling musicianship King has been renowned for, Junior showcases her further maturation as a well-rounded artist that defies categorization and expectations.

Thursday, February 24th • 8:00 PM
Pat McGee, after nearly fourteen years of touring, feels the need to mix things up a bit. The namesake and leader of the Pat McGee Band may only be going by his own name when he performs these days, but it doesn’t mean the band itself is finished. “We recently decided to change how we do things,” says McGee. “I have been doing some solo, duo, and trio touring, in addition to full band dates. It keeps things interesting.” This shift and Pat’s revolving live lineups will give fans some variations in the live setting that are sure to please.

Yankee Blues, courtesy of the Matt Zeiner Band

Infinity Music Hall Guest Post by:
Bridgette L. Rallo
The Greenwoods Studio
http://www.greenwoodsstudio.com/

What do “The Blues” and “Connecticut” have in common? Just Matt Zeiner and his band of soulful musicians, that’s all. I mean, the man has played with some of the best; they sought him out, for crying out loud. Dickie Betts of Allman Brothers fame, Matt “Guitar” Murphy – remember The Blues Brothers?

I know, I know. Connecticut isn’t the kind of place famous for its contributions to the Mississippi Delta Hall of Fame. But Matt Zeiner is all our own and his band is smokin’ hot. Just ask anyone who has traveled the state to see them perform at venues from Hartford to New London and back again.

In the years since Zeiner stopped touring with Dickie Betts, he’s gathered some of the hippest musicians from the R&B and rock circuits, including the hugely talented Dennis Fancher, of The James Montgomery Project, and soul-meister Ramon Morant, of (what else?) Soul Syndicate. The jazz/rock/blues fusion these guys produce is, first and foremost, a feast for fans of musicianship.

Oh yeah, Zeiner plays guitar. The rest of them play, too. Then there’s the fusion aspect of things. American popular music is the continuing story of fusion and The Matt Zeiner Band fuses with the greats. Jazz fans will swing, blues fans will moan and rock fans will do what they always do: party on. So, if you’re in the mood for some good old American SOUND, check out Matt Zeiner and his band on Friday night, December 17, at 8 pm. You won’t go hungry.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band


Friday, April 15th • 8:00 PM


The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band formed in Southern California during the spring of 1966 as a scruffy, young jug-band. Forty-four years later, the quartet (Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen) is still going strong. Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s self-titled debut album, released in 1967, included the pop hit “Buy For Me The Rain.” But it was their 5th record, 1970’s Uncle Charlie and His Dog Teddy, that would become the band’s breakthrough project, yielding 3 pop hits including their version of Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Mr. Bojangles.” A veritable summit of talent, which included NGDB’s heroes: Scruggs, Doc Watson, Merel Travis, Roy Acuff and Mother Maybelle Carter, would become part of the Will the Circle be Unbroken album. This three-LP set, recorded live in the studio in Nashville over six days in 1971, became a landmark event and a multi-platinum success. Circle remains such a significant effort that 30 years later it was one of 50 recordings to be honored and preserved by the Library of Congress.
