Merchants of Cool (Foreigner Tribute)

Merchants of Cool (Foreigner Tribute)

Saturday, March 17, 9:00pm

“Merchants of Cool” was an idea that came about in the spring of 2011 to guitarist Mike Silva. He was looking for another project that would entertain people, make them dance and give them a lot of good memories. With Foreigner’s vast array of hit songs, like “I Want to Know What Love Is,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Hot Blooded,” “Cold As Ice” and more, it seemed like a great choice.
The band hits the nail on the head with every song!

Chicago Total Access - "A Tribute to Chicago"

Saturday, March 31, 9:00pm

New England’s premier tribute to the band, Chicago.
This is a hi-energy, explosive show band dedicated to covering the band’s catalog that spans over 45 years. The audience will have “total access” to the music of Chicago. Chicago Total Access is a music group made up of 10 talented musicians which all grew up listening to American and British pop/rock, jazz, blues, rhythm and blues, Motown, acid rock and music from the 40’s, 50’s,60’s and 70’s as well as classical music from the ages. Our music is dedicated to the music of the American rock band “Chicago”. There is no other American rock n roll band with horns that has influenced more musicians, is loved by millions of people worldwide, and has become such a deep part of Americana as the band Chicago. Since 1967, 46 years of sold out concerts, millions of record sales and legions of cheering fans worldwide Chicago is still going strong in 2013. The members of Chicago Total Access have attempted to recreate a slice of the timeless musical catalog of Chicago as well as stay true to the spirit of the original recordings. We hope you enjoy our efforts! The liner notes of their first recording titled “The Chicago Transit Authority” still inspire us and I hope you as well. “The printed word can never aspire to document a truly musical experience, so if you must call them something, speak of the city where all save one were born; where all of them were schooled and bred, and where all of this incredible music went down barely noticed; call them CHICAGO.”

Saturday, April 7, 9:00pm

ACE ACETO’S ROYAL FLUSH COMEDY SHOW

Ace Aceto’s Royal Flush Comedy Show is a fast moving, talent-packed show that brings tons of laughs a minute!  This very special show brings together 2 of New England’s favorite headlining comics, joined by one of New England’s favorite featured acts, and a new fresh face of comedy, all hosted by the charismatic, audience engaging, R.I. Comedy Hall of Famer, Ace Aceto!  You’re guaranteed to be dealt a winning hand every time!

The Ace – Ace Aceto

Growing up in an Italian/Catholic household and going to Catholic school as a kid has made Ace Aceto what he is today…inquisitive and irreverent!

Ace burst onto the comedy scene during the latter part of the stand-up comedy boom in 1989.  His first time on stage he immediately caught attention by placing second in a local comedy contest.  By 1990, Ace was chosen along with 9 other finalists to be filmed for Stand-Up Stand-Up and Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central (then known as The Comedy Channel).

A Rhode Island native, Ace worked clubs, colleges, and corporate dates up and down the east coast, before working on stage as Demetrius in Shakespeare’s “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream”.  In 1998 he completed his first starring film role, in the independent feature film “BoxedMan”, capturing attention from casting agents from Disney-Touchstone as well as 20th Century Fox.

With his instantly likable stage presence, and ability to walk the line between innocent boy-next-door and biting edge comic, Ace takes his audiences on a hysterical ride, performing dead on impressions of Casey Kasem, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Peter & Stewie Griffin.  Throughout his shows, you never know what will come out of his mouth next, as he plows through hot topics like religion & dating, saying what most folks think, but are afraid to say.

Ace has worked with such comic luminaries as Jeff Dunham, Jim Breuer, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, Kevin Meany, Jon Stewart, Dom Irerra, and Lewis Black (just to name a few).  Ace has also opened for such acts as Huey Lewis & The News, Luther Vandross, and David Cassidy.

Ace continues to be an audience favorite, headlining such clubs as Catch a Rising Star, The Comedy Factory, Joker’s Wild, and Newport Grand Casino.  In 2016, Ace was inducted into the Rhode Island Comedy Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Charlie Hall, Frank O’Donnell, and Tom Cotter.

 

The Joker – EJ Edmunds

One of the RI Comedy scenes rising stars.  Edmunds is a paradox.  With a rigid military background, Edmunds is anything but.  He is the most laid-back military man you’ll ever see!

 

The Jack – Brad Pierce

Brad Pierce is quickly becoming known as a comic with a sharp wit, and a sharper tongue.  Only Brad could take the misfortune of having both Jim Gaffigan AND Jerry Seinfeld stop in and do a set before him at the legendary Gotham Comedy Club, and absolutely follow them by crushing with a rant of self-deprecating humor.

 

The Queen – Jody Sloane

Sloane cut her entertainment teeth doing her sit-down shtick as a cheeky “conducktor” named Penny Wise on the Boston Duck Tours. Her duck tour experience — 4,000 times — was the perfect tee-up to becoming a stand-up comic.

 

She’s now a regular at esteemed comedy venues, including Headliners Comedy Clubs throughout New England, Gotham Comedy Club in New York City, Comix Comedy Club at Mohegan, Nick’s Comedy Stop, plus roadhouses, Elks Clubs and dives from Portland to New York.  Wherever people need to laugh, Jody answers the call and is a favorite for booking agents and clubs across the Northeast. Among her favorite gigs are the Boston Comedy Festival, the Asheville (N.C.) Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, and Tupelo Music Hall.

 

Impishly perverse, her style is thoughtful, yet edgy; touching on age, divorce, and being raised by wolves.  She’ll have you convinced that in the darkest corners of truth is comedy.

 

The King – John Poveromo

A Brooklyn born Jersey raised Stand Up with the perfect blend of self deprecation and optimism makes John a dynamic and unpredictable performer that’s both engaging and fun to watch as he struggles to make sense of himself and the world around him. Always open and honest, John’s charm and vulnerability on stage gives him the ability to connect with every audience allowing each show to be original, refreshing and funny as hell.

John has been featured in the New York Times and the Asbury Park Press. He can be heard on Sirius XM Radio, has been featured at the Jersey City Comedy Festival, The New York Underground Comedy Festival and appeared on Comcast On Demand’s “Young Comedians Showcase.”

John has lent his writing talents to a variety of shows, including ESPN’s Sports Nation, Current TV’s Viewpoint with John Fugelsang, Joy Behar’s ‘Say Anything’ on HLN, The Independents, CNN’s Newsroom as well as Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld, Hannity and VH1’s “Best Of” series.

Draw the Line - "A Tribute to Aerosmith"

Saturday, April 21, 9:00pm

DRAW THE LINE! Authentically raised in Boston, MA, this organic show has been cultivated from the very roots that inspired & drive Aerosmith to this day. A powerful transformation of character far beyond just a tribute group, this remarkable show will give you goose bumps with the memories of the 70’s, bringing you the feel of the 80’s and with all the exuberance of the 90’s. Adding in its great audience interaction, it is a definitive crowd pleaser for all age groups. The true distinction in the show is the Steven Tyler doppelganger Neill Byrnes. Not only does he naturally look like the infamous Rock Icon, but his voice naturally sounds like Tyler! He has the tone, the mannerisms and the attitude of America’s favorite rocker! Byrnes has himself been born & raised in the Boston area and has been a musician since the age of 9. Starting with the trombone, then drums, then bass and eventually graduating from the New England Conservatory of Music. Only two months into Draw the Line, he met Tyler at a lookalike contest and Tyler was so impressed by his raw talent that he referred Neill to his personal vocal coach. Byrnes spent ten years in vocal training with Tyler’s own vocal coach Mark Baxter during his college tenure at Northeastern University and beyond. Having received his degree cum laude in Psychology, Byrnes nevertheless decided to pursue his musical interest through Draw the Line. He continues to hone his craft by pursuing other acting paths as well as keeping up with Tyler’s wardrobe & stage antics.

Big Eyed Phish- "A tribute to Dave Matthews"

Saturday, May 19, 9:00pm

Big Eyed Phish is the only regionally touring full 7-piece Dave Matthews Tribute in the country and are based out of Rochester, NY.  In the 8 years they have been performing together, they have grown to become a highly sought-after headlining act for festivals, resorts, casinos, and live music venues.  The band is lead by frontman Brandon Depaul, the founder of the former DMB Tribute: Tripping Billies.  He is backed up by a great band of truly professional musicians and is the only DMB Tribute that can claim to have a full time lead guitar and keyboard player.  This allows them to be the only accurate DMB Tribute in the country able to cover the full spectrum of the DMB catalog throughout the lineup changes seen in the Dave Matthews Band.  

Members include:
Brandon DePaul (“Dave”) – Lead Vocals, Guitar
Jimmy Grillo (“Carter”) – Drums
Dan Merkey (“Jeff/LeRoi”) – Sax, Backup Vocals, Cowbell
Shawn Rotolo (“Stefan”) – Bass

Jon Sheffer (“Tim”) – Lead Guitar
(Kire Najdovski and Collin Jones sub on lead guitar at times)

Big Eyed Phish has continued to be one of the most sought-after DMB tribute acts in the country.  Each show is unique with a blend of mega-hits to dance to as well as some deep tracks for the more dedicated DMB fanbase.  There are over 75 songs in their catalog combining Dave Matthews Band’s original tunes as well as some songs that DMB is known to cover.  The live show is a high-energy driven audio and visual experience intending to immerse the audience in a feeling of seeing and hearing the real band, while enjoying the more intimate nature of tribute band performances.  The band is often hired for headline slots and given top billing as a nationally touring act.
Dave Matthews Band’s music is enjoyed by a wide range of ages and musical tastes, crossing over into many different genres including rock, blues, country, soul, jazz, and more.  This band gives much more than just a recreation of the songs from an album, and focuses their efforts to truly put on a show that mirrors the Dave Matthews Band live experience.  From the incredible musicianship, the soulful lyrics, the rocking solos and jams, and even the witty stage banter Dave Matthews is known for – Big Eyed Phish delivers on all aspects.

When looking for the DMB Tribute that is able to offer the full catalog of the Dave Matthews Band sound throughout the years – Big Eyed Phish is the best there is.  From private parties, to weddings, to festivals, concert series, casinos, resorts, and large live music venues – this band will leave people saying “I feel like I just left a live Dave Matthews show”.

Ace burst onto the comedy scene during the latter part of the stand-up comedy boom in 1989.  His first time on stage he immediately caught attention by placing second in a local comedy contest.  By 1990, Ace was chosen along with 9 other finalists to be filmed for Stand-Up Stand-Up and Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central (then known as The Comedy Channel).

A Rhode Island native, Ace worked clubs, colleges, and corporate dates up and down the east coast, before working on stage as Demetrius in Shakespeare’s “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream”.  In 1998 he completed his first starring film role, in the independent feature film “BoxedMan”, capturing attention from casting agents from Disney-Touchstone as well as 20th Century Fox.

With his instantly likable stage presence, and ability to walk the line between innocent boy-next-door and biting edge comic, Ace takes his audiences on a hysterical ride, performing dead on impressions of Casey Kasem, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Peter & Stewie Griffin.  Throughout his shows, you never know what will come out of his mouth next, as he plows through hot topics like religion & dating, saying what most folks think, but are afraid to say.

Ace has worked with such comic luminaries as Jeff Dunham, Jim Breuer, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, Kevin Meany, Jon Stewart, Dom Irerra, and Lewis Black (just to name a few).  Ace has also opened for such acts as Huey Lewis & The News, Luther Vandross, and David Cassidy.

Ace continues to be an audience favorite, headlining such clubs as Catch a Rising Star, The Comedy Factory, Joker’s Wild, and Newport Grand Casino.  In 2016, Ace was inducted into the Rhode Island Comedy Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Charlie Hall, Frank O’Donnell, and Tom Cotter.

 

The Joker – Rick Roberts

Rick is a lawyer by day and comedian by night. Originally from New York City, he now lives and works in Cheshire, CT. Rick has wanted to do stand-up comedy for most of his life, and finally tried it a few years ago. He hasn’t been able to stop since then, and has performed in over 300 shows throughout the Northeast. He’s a graduate of the Manhattan School of Comedy through Caroline’s. Rick performs regularly at comedy clubs in New York City, including Stand-Up New York, The Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline’s and The Brokerage. He also performs in fundraisers, corporate functions and private parties. Rick has performed twice at the Palace Theater in Waterbury to audiences over 1000.

Rick’s unique and jaded perspective on the frustrations of middle-aged life and modern technology are central themes of his comedy.

The Jack – Dean Abbott

Hailing from Worcester MA, Abbott is a favorite throughout New England clubs and colleges.

The Queen – Amy Tee

Amy Tee has returned to the stage awakened by sobriety and a recent bipolar diagnosis and delivers the best material of her career. “I feel alive. I’m candid and exposed yet still fully clothed. This is me. I got reacquainted with me and discovered a kinder, gentler Amy Tee. I like her. She’s hilarious!”

 

Identified as a rising star by the Boston Globe, Amy Tee is one of the busiest comedians on the New England comedy circuit today! Charming and playful this “winning” combination provides a twisted dance between stereotypes and reality.

Whether she is performing in world famous comedy clubs, theaters, colleges, or at charity events, her edgy but subtle approach turns her personal tribulations into non-stop hilarity with mainstream and alternative audiences from Los Angeles to New York City alike. As an official IOOV (In Our Own Voice) Presenter for National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI),  Amy Tee proudly uses her comedy act to serve as a mental wellness advocate.

 

Mentioned in Curve magazine as one of the “funniest lesbians in America”, Amy Tee is a regular performer at the Boston Comedy Festival, and also featured on Sirius XM Satellite Radio & LOGO television network.

The King – Mike Murray

Some people are just born funny. Some people are just born deaf. Mike Murray beat all the odds and was born both funny and deaf.

Murray had a double cochlear implant when he was 40 years old, allowing him to hear for the first time. As he took to the hearing world, he was able to experience things he could never even have dreamed of.

In 2008, Murray decided to try his hand at comedy, enrolling in a comedy boot camp. Right away, he knew he was comfortable on the stage, and that comedy would take over his life.

In a short time span, Murray, now known as “The Deaf Comic” quickly made a name for himself by placing in two major Rhode Island contests: the “Rhode Island Comedy Festival” with over 100 competing comics (taking 2nd place); and “Catch a ‘New’ Rising Star” with over 120 comedic contestants (taking 3rd place) – all within his first 4-months of stand-up.

JAMMIN’ : A Tribute to Bob Marley  has been performing steadily since their inception in 2001. They are a 9-10 piece band that pays tribute to the enduring legacy of Bob Marley’s greatest songs.
