Band Contact: Chris Chitouras
Saturday, May 17 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This roots based band from Boston, MA combines 3-part harmonies layered over rock and world beat grooves and has developed a unique sound that moves smoothly from original reggae and rock to West African and Cuban to funk and psychedelia. The band is made up of Conor O'Brien on guitar, electric mandolin and lead vocals, Chris Chitouras on acoustic and electric guitar and vocals, Keith Kirkpatrick on electric bass and vocals and our new addition to the band, Frank Laurino on percussion. Some influences include Paul Simon, Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Peter Gabriel, Buena Vista Social Club, the Beatles, Baaba Maal, Grateful Dead and Zani Diabate.
