CELEBRATING 20+ YEARS OF SCARY GOOD MUSIC WITH A MISSION
Looking to play here? Two things; use email (no calls, I’m trying to get work done at the day job) and read the page linked to in the next sentence. We like to hear from musicians we don’t know about but… if you want to see if you’ll fit, look at this page here.
All shows are at the North Madison Congregational Church, 1271 Durham Rd, Madison. See you here soon!!
You can read this first, or scroll down to the shows:
Ticket Sales or Reservations:
1A: Reservations almost always necessary. It’s possible there may be walk-in space available, but it’s not guaranteed. We will post if there’s walk-in room available under each show’s individual heading. Check the status the afternoon of the show, before you drive over!! Shows can fill up fast with this level of talent!
1B:To reserve seats or for more information for these shows please send us an email. All seats are assigned and reserved in the order in which they come in, so if you reserve early, you get good seats. If the link isn’t working for you, the email is: workdog(at)mindspring.com, or call Charlie at 203-668-3735. Leave a message if he can’t hear the phone due to tools powering away.
1C: Pay at the door, always. Cash or check is fine. We don’t do the pre-pay thing because we’re too lazy to figure it out. Plus, if you’re sick or something, you’re already miserable, and losing the price of a ticket makes it worse.
We are the only concert venue with a mission.We want to educate, inspire, and yes, entertain. Not to waste space here, please look at the “workshops: the mission” page to see what we mean. Virtually EVERY concert is a fundraiser for a local non-profit.
And of course, visit our Facebook Page for links to really cool music. Some we book, some we don’t due to whatever, but it’s all great stuff.

SAM REIDER AND JORGE GLEM: THE BAND
it’a also:The annual thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers pizza party concert!
Sensational Sam Reider brings his ever-changing band to the series to end the indoor part of the season with a bang. Here, he partners with Jorge Glem, who is basically the Jimi Hendrix of the Cuatro. Sure, that’s an overused phrase, but not here. Fireworks abound. Add in the great Eddie barbs on sax, plus a special mystery guest, and it’ll be a season-ending party of a night. It’s always a high-octane mix of soul and sweetness and searing sound. (overdoing the alliteration, there) But what they do is fit in perfectly with our love of music that’s never predictable. The level of musicianship is always off the charts, but trying to describe it? Forget it. But don’t worry, sitting still in your seats won’t be possible. Adults the usual $25, kids high school and under, $5.

And we can now announce the musical offering for this, and it’s…
Yup, Doc Dave Wallace turned us onto this up-and-coming tornado of great sounds coming out of Berklee. Food and all the other details to follow, but for now, check these kids out on their site and listen to a few samples. I think you’ll be as impressed as I am. Pretty Saro
And next Fall, as in September, 2019…
September 2o (FRIDAY) , 7:30 PM
the one and only, rarely seen…
We have so many living legends, it’s hard to keep calling everyone we get a “living legend.” But Väsen certainly qualifies as that. It’s a very rare East Coast tour. Please note the day, it’s a Friday. We’ve switched so they can also get a slot up at Freshgrass that weekend, which means we’re not only the home of the best music around, we’re almost tolerably nice guys.. No need to go into detail, any music geek knows what’s up here. And they’ll reserve well before you, unless you hurry. Once in a lifetime opportunity? Maybe not, but then, maybe.. Adults $30, kids high school and under, the usual $5.
