Merchants of Cool (Foreigner Tribute)

Merchants of Cool (Foreigner Tribute)

Saturday, September 2, 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!

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, October 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 deafclt 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 – Chris D

Chris Dimitrakopoulos (Chris D) entertains audiences with his blend of jokes about his quirky, Greek father and his unique perspective on the world around him. Chris D is a rising star in the Boston stand-up comedy scene who was recently voted as Boston’s second best young comedian by the Boston Comedy Scene Examiner.

The Jack – Adrian Morse

Adrian Morse: A comic guaranteed to make you laugh because he is too stubborn to take no for an answer! As soon as you think you have him figured out, you will notice there is an undertone of mystery about him which will have you engaged and leave you wanting more. If Adrian lost his ability to make people laugh, there is no doubt he would be hospitalized with his trauma from past relationships and crippling depression. But even in the hospital, he would be sure to piss off the staff and keep the other patients entertained with his witty and sarcastic humor. Adrian’s biggest inspiration is no one other than himself because he is that self-centered, but is nice enough to share himself with others and his audience in which he loves. Oh, and George Carlin, obviously!

Because Adrian repeats the same mistakes over and over, especially with women, he brings a new meaning to the saying “nice guys finish last”. Now in his 30s, Adrian is figuring out who he is and isn’t afraid to overanalyze every aspect of it. Adrian has performed in comedy clubs and bars, despite whether or not it’s comedy night, all across New England and New York. His view on relatable dating experiences and everyday life will have you in tears…but good tears… from laughing…because he’s that hilarious…and awesome. He is also awkward, just like the end of this bio.

 

The Queen – Jessica Casciano

With her petitte stature Jessica is sure to take audiences to all new comic heights. When it comes to making people laugh – Jessica measures up! Don’t be fooled by her petite stature this gal delivers BIG laughs! Her energy and strong prescence are sure to lift audiences to all new comic heights. Jessica was a semifinalist in the Boston Comedy Festival, Sam Adams Light Contest, and was chosen to be showcased by Marshall ‘s “Women In Comedy”. She was also show cased as one of Mix 98.5’s Funniest People in New England and won WFNX’s Yuks 4 Buks Contest – this win landed her a position as Resident Funny Lady on WFNX and you can hear weekly. If you’re looking for an evening of fun you MUST see Jessica! Leave your worries at the door and the laughs to her!!!

The King – Mark Riley

Mark Riley is one of the top headlining acts in the Boston comedy scene. His unique perspective on everyday situations combined with his sharp observational humor keeps audiences in stitches. His ability to improve is second to none and is fearless when it comes to hecklers or anyone who thinks they can be funnier than the comedian. Mark can perform anywhere and for any audience and deliver a great show.

Mark is able to connect with audiences in a unique way. Many people have said they felt like they were sitting in their living room hanging out with one of their friends when they see him perform. People love the way he can incorporate them into his show with ease and can adapt to any situation that may arise. Mark’s diverse background of experiences and employment allow him to relate to anyone, no matter what they do for a living or where they are from. He has three kids, all teenagers, so he relates to parents really well. One interesting fact is that Mark has been to 45 of the 50 states.

Mark developed many of his comedic and acting talents in various coliseums and “ice barns” throughout the country while he traveled as a professional ice hockey referee. Mark was an employee of the NHL for one whole week. Yeah, he was hired then fired one week later. It was at that moment Mark realized he belonged on stage rather than the ice. Mark still referees on occasion, but he now focuses his attention to coaching both boys and girls hockey where he gets plenty of material for his shows. He also ran a Gymboree Play and Music franchise for four years, along with cleaning houses, pallbearing at funerals, and a bunch of other jobs. Mark currently is a teacher. Yes a school teacher, but he’ll tell you about that in his act.

Mark has co-authored a movie script called Penalty Box, based on his life as a hockey referee. He is also in the process of publishing his first book, Not Every Kid Should Get A Trophy.

Draw the Line - "A Tribute to Aerosmith"

Saturday, October 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.
