09/23/16 – SOMEWHERE BETWEEN: NOT AN ORDINARY LIFE is an autobiographical solo show written and performed by two-time Grammy nominee Cidny Bullens.
The story begins with Cindy’s arrival in Los Angeles in the mid-1970’s, taking us through her fateful meetings with songwriter/producer Bob Crewe and Sir Elton John - brushing ever so close to stardom - and covers her unlikely journey as a wife and mother, then as a bereaved parent, and finally as a grandparent. We learn throughout about Cindy’s private struggle with gender identity and how, finally, she decides to jump headlong into the fire of gender transition - to become Cidny, the person he always felt he was.
Cidny Bullens’ SOMEWHERE BETWEEN is a personal, poignant and powerful story of perseverance, tragedy, triumph - and ultimately unconditional love. With a unique perspective on life, Cidny tells his story in an intimate setting with a guitar, images and a healthy sense of humor.

11/06/16 – Join us on Sunday, Nov. 6th for a 7PM show for a performance featuring Lucy Wainwright Roche and fellow touring musician Matt The Electrician! Tickets $18 Advance/$22 Door
Lucy Wainwright Roche was born in NYC into two influential musical families (daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche). A full time touring musician, with an ever-expanding solo career, Lucy is known for her crystal clear voice, straightforward, humorous stage presence, and insightful, melodic songwriting. Her recordings include: 8 Songs, 8 More, Lucy and her brand new 2013 release CD called There’s a Last Time For Everything. Fairytale and Myth is the first collaboration between Lucy and her mother, Suzzy Roche and has been nominated for Best Singer/Songwriter Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards.
Matt The Electrician despite the name, is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and literally thousands of shows. It’s folk music for a modern age, rooted in lyrics that focus on the realities and challenges of the 21st century as opposed to, say, the old-school thrill of hopping trains. Throughout 2015 and 2016, he’s focusing on a string of 7-inch vinyl singles. Every new release will focus on collaborations with different artists who’ve crossed Matt’s path over the years, including the bluegrass band Wood & Wire (who appear on the very first installment of the vinyl series), experimental solo musician Little Brave, and others.
11/13/16 – Jenna Lotti is a pop soul singer-songwriter from Boston, MA. Originally writing poetry for self-medication, Lotti began penning open book lyrics at the age of 15. Singing only to herself and close friends eventually she was convinced to attend a local open mic in Boston. After nervously singing an original song to an iPod recording, she was met with very positive response from the small crowd which led to further musical experimentation. Over the next few years she incessantly wrote tunes, learned to play the guitar and started recording YouTube videos (in her bathroom). Drawing from her childhood musical influences in pop, blues, soul and big band Lotti’s music is a soulful distillation that flirts with both her stirring and sweet sides. After countless open mic’s and years on YouTube she started booking small shows around Boston.
As her shows grew larger, so did her band and her collection of original songs. In 2013 she created a successful kick-starter campaign which led to the creation of her debut album “Tunnel Vision”. The 9 song LP propelled her career into the next stage showcasing her songwriting and musical capabilities. Tunes such as “Red Line Love” (w/ accompanying music video), “Strangers” and “Medicine” drew wide acclaim by fans and local media.
“From the opening riff to the closing stab, the new EP "Bad Habits" from Jenna Lotti delivers. The Boston singer/songwriter showcases an evolving maturity in both songwriting and vocals on her second release, and the production is tight throughout. From fun, blues-tinged sass to serious harmonies – reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles – these 5 songs, laced with memorable hooks, serve as a marker Jenna is throwing down to the world: "I am here. You must listen." And those who do, are in for a treat.” -Matt Reid MIX 104.1
“It’s exciting when a young and gifted singer chooses to record a single that pays tribute to our blues and jazz heritage, yet could still sound at home on a pop radio playlist. Lotti unloosens her soul in “Bad Habits” rather than relying on the studio gimmicks that numb so much of today’s chart-topping music.” - Carter Alan WZLX
Jenna received the nod for Limelight Magazine’s 2015 ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ and was nominated for "Female Performer of the Year" in 2016 by The New England Music Awards.This recognition was punctuated by invitations to open for national acts such as Hunter Hayes and Buddy Guy. Lotti is getting ready to release her sophomore EP this summer.
