Ruby Rose Fox Is A Must-See Up-and-Coming Artist

There is a Boston-based singer-songwriter named Ruby Rose Fox. Do not forget her name because she (along with her backing vocalists, the Gloria Steinems) will be a big star in the not-too-distant future.

Described as a vocal powerhouse of soul-driven edgy rock ‘n roll, Ruby stuns a crowd when the first notes pour from her mouth. The first time I saw her, without having heard any of her music, my jaw dropped and I was hooked.

It Was An Evilicious Night, Indeed!

I am biased when it comes to Michelle ‘Evil Gal’ Willson; she is a friend, a cousin of a life-long friend, and a great singer. Still, I say without reservation that she is a consummate entertainer who is worth your time to see. She performed her brand of jazz/blues/soul music recently at The Extended Play Sessions at the Fallout Shelter.

Classic Rockers At Their Finest!

It can be risky to see aging rock stars perform; they might be playing guitar with arthritic hands, or their voices (which naturally change as they age) cannot hit the notes they still try to hit. Neither could be further from the truth for Peter Frampton, who appeared at the Lowell Summer Music Series last weekend.

An Evening In Singer-Songwriter Heaven

I had never seen Mary Chapin Carpenter perform despite wanting to see her, so I was thrilled when her show was announced for the Lowell Summer Music Series this year. I grew even more excited about the show when I read that Rose Cousins would open the show.

Even though a brief unexpected shower occurred a few minutes before MCC was to take the stage, the audience’s spirits were not dampened by the ten-minute delay waiting for the rain to end.

This Was A Terrific Rock Show Under Starry Skies!

The Lowell Summer Music Series is an outdoor – weather permitting – venue, and local favorites Guster wanted this show to be outdoors. Their wish was granted due to wise weather-watching by the people who run the Series. What started off as a terrible afternoon ended up as a perfect evening under the stars.

This was my first time seeing Guster, despite the band’s numerous shows in the Boston area over the years they have been together.

A Magical Evening of Amazing Harmonicas and Guitar

I first saw Shun Ng perform early last year at a show that was called An Afternoon of Extraordinary Guitars. That moniker did not overstate the talent on stage that day, so I eagerly anticipated seeing him at The Extended Play Sessions with Magic Dick, the harmonica player with the J. Geils Band.
