Three talented bands. Beautiful venue. Awesome charity.
On Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 7 – 11pm, Support Sails Up 4 Cancer and enjoy three amazingly talented local bands at Olde Mistick Village’s Luxury Cinemas (Coogan Blvd.). Newly renovated, the cinema offers the best seating, sound and now offers beer and wine. Tickets are $10 at the door or in advance at www.su4c.org.
Wooly Mammoth kicks off the evening. Wooly Mammoth is: Gray Hallberg on Lead Guitar & Vocals, Erik Laisi on Drums, Toby Halsey on Rhythm Guitar and back up vocals and, Mike LaChance on Bass – they have played Mystic Blues Festival, Mystic Eats, the Air & Sea Celebration and play often at The Daniel Packer Inne.
The second band is The Hoolios; they are a diverse group morphing from solo singer-songwriter Jim Carpenter to an acoustic quartet and six-piece rock/dance band depending upon the venue. The Hoolios have garnered an excellent reputation for their Americana/Rock/Latin and Zydeco grooves, featuring three lead vocalists, accordion, mandolin, washboard and organ.
Green Tea closes out the evening. Green Tea is Toby Kniffin on Guitar and Vocals, Jamie Conroy on Guitar, Amie Coffey on Vocals, Michael Chicoria on Keys, Jay Hartley on Drums, Marty Moroney on Bass and Gino Maiorano on Percussion. Green Tea was formed in 2001 when members of Third Stone & Beggars Bash got together to make some music, jam and share ideas. Over 15 years later, Green Tea is going strong with a wealth of original material, four CDs and contagious momentum. Music influencing the sound of Green Tea ranges from the melody and magic of Garcia/Hunter, to the driving rock n roll and melody work of the Allman Brothers. Mix that with a Dylanesque writing approach that focuses on the lost art of “the song” and you get Green Tea.
