Phil Vassar w/ DBB

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Phil Vassar w/ DBB
Event on 2014-10-03 20:00:00

Schmitt's Saloon and Davisson Brothers Music Hall Present:

Phil Vassar (full band) with special guest Davisson Brothers Band opening the show.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DOORS DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 8PM! We have a private party from 6-8pm.  The show will begin at 9pm.

Phil Vassar is as driven today as he was when he first left his Lynchburg, Virginia home to pursue – and realize – his dream of making his mark in Country music. The notion of starting his own label made sense as his next most logical move in a career that has seen the release of six albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, countless hits as a singer and songwriter and a mantle full of awards. Excited at the limitless possibilities of starting fresh, he launched the Rodeowave label in 2011 to continue the work he started so many years ago. 

Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, Phil was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career. “Little Red Rodeo,” (Collin Raye) “My Next Thirty Years,” “For A Little While,”(both by Tim McGraw) “She’s Right On The Money,” (Alan Jackson) and “I‘m Alright” (Jo Dee Messina) are just a few of the songs he’s penned that other artists have recorded and taken to the top of the charts. Vassar continues to churn out incisive, soulful lyrics and infectious melodies that capture the heart and soul in the unique and special way that only he can. 

In this latest chapter of his career, Vassar is not only debuting some freshly penned songs but he’s dusting off some vintage tunes from the vault as well and the wide range of material on this new project is a reminder of just how diverse and multi-talented an artist he really is. Known for up-tempo piano numbers that instantly get your foot tapping like “Carlene,” and “Six-Pack Summer,” and heartstring-tugging devotionals like “That’s When I Love You,” and “Just Another Day In Paradise,” Phil can also dig deep into heartbreak territory, as evidenced by the wrenchingly honest ballad, “April Fools” a song he wrote years ago that’s making its first appearance under the Rodeowave banner. 

His latest single, “Don’t Miss Your Life,” was written on an airplane, and his inspiration was a retired businessman flying to see his family. “He told me about all of the things he had missed while building a business and supporting his family. I realized all of the things I had missed in my kids’ lives. I was looking at pictures of ‘moments’ in the lives of my daughters on my iPad and realized I wasn’t in any of them!”

Herman’s Hermits Starring Peter Noone and The Buckinghams

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Herman’s Hermits Starring Peter Noone and The Buckinghams
Event on 2014-11-20 20:00:00

A double bill of classic 60s pop! Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone scored over 20 top 40 hits, such as “There’s a Kind of Hush,” “I’m Into Something Good,” and “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter.” The Buckinghams are known for such pop classics as “Kind of a Drag,” “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” and “Don’t You Care.”

  • Peter Blair Denis Bernard Noone is a multi-talented entertainer, who has been delighting audiences nearly all his life. He was born in Manchester, England, where he studied voice and acting at St. Bede’s College and the Manchester School of Music and Drama. As a child, he played “Stanley Fairclough” in the long-running British soap opera Coronation Street. He was also featured in the television series Knight Errant, Family Solicitor and Monro’s Saki Stories.

    At the age of fifteen, Peter achieved international fame as “Herman”, lead singer of the legendary pop band Herman’s Hermits. His classic hits include: “I’m Into Something Good”, “Mrs. Brown, you’ve Got A Lovely Daughter”, “I’m Henry VIII, I Am”, “Silhouettes”, “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat”, “Wonderful World”, “Just A Little Bit Better”, “There’s A Kind of Hush”, “A Must To Avoid”, “Listen People”, “No Milk Today” “The End of the World” “Leaning On A Lamp Post”, and “Dandy”. Ultimately, Herman’s Hermits sold over fifty-two million recordings. In all, fourteen singles and seven albums went gold.

    As “Herman”, the photogenic Noone graced the cover of nearly every international publication including Time Magazine. He performed on hundreds of television shows and appeared with such luminaries as Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Dean Martin and Danny Kaye. He was cast as the engaging “Duke of Cheshire” in ABC’s musical version of The Canterville Ghost. Soon thereafter, he portrayed the title role in Hallmark Hall of Fame’s Pinocchio. He also starred in three highly successful feature films for M-G-M: Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Hold On! and When The Boys Meet The Girls.

    With characteristic zeal, Peter took on leading roles in full-scale theatrical productions of Dick Wittington, Aladdin and Sinbad The Sailor. These live stage spectaculars were mounted at major theatres throughout Great Britain and Noone received critical acclaim for his outstanding work. In the eighties, Peter starred on Broadway in the New York Shakespeare Festival’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. He won rave reviews for his superb portrayal of the dashing, young hero, “Frederic”. His performance was so well received, that he went on to reprise the role at the world-famous Drury Lane Theatre in London. Noone charmed audiences worldwide as he continued to play “Frederic” with both the U.S. National Touring Company and the International Touring Company of “Pirates”.

    Peter’s acting career flourished with guest-starring roles in prime-time television series such as: Married With Children, My Two Dads, Dave’s World, Easy Street, Too Close For Comfort, and Laverne and Shirley. In a memorable episode of Quantum Leap, he shed his “nice guy” image to portray “Dwayne”, a scheming promoter with murderous intentions. He starred as “Apoo”, a frustrated African relief worker, in the Los Angeles stage premiere of Topokana Martyr’s Day and as Alfred Von Wilmers in the U.S. National Tour of the smash Broadway hit Romance, Romance.

    The nineties found Peter embarking on a four-year stint as the winsome host of VH1’s My Generation, the highest-ever-rated half hour retrospective of pop/rock music. More recently, he was featured in the recurring role of “Paddington” on the CBS daytime drama, As The World Turns. His legion of fans eagerly awaited each episode and Peter quickly became a favorite of the soap opera magazines and online message boards. He began the millennium with his successful entry into cyberspace and the New York Daily News dubbed him “The King of the Sixties on the Internet” due to the overwhelming popularityof his websites: peternoone.com and hermanshermits.com. Accompanied by his band, Herman’s Hermits, Noone currently performs over 200 concerts a year. 

    He consistently plays to sold-out venues and his admirers span the generations. Today’s teen girls scream just as passionately as their mothers did back in 1965, prompting VH1 to select Noone as their viewer’s choice for the “Sexiest Artist of the Year”. There is no doubt that Peter Noone’s extraordinary talent, disarming wit, handsome features and compelling stage presence will continue to delight fans of all ages, for a long, long time to come.

    The Buckinghams: One of the most beloved and respected Chicago bands ever to explode onto the national scene, The Buckinghams’ live concerts pack power into 60s pop rock. Bringing back great memories
    with chart-topping 60s hits, The Buckinghams also perform popular 70s favorites in their sets, electrifying audiences with high-energy fun. Original Buckinghams Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna and their band continue to deliver fast-paced, solid shows that get crowds on their feet.

    Their #1 song, “Kind of a Drag” is a standout favorite that first made them famous. Next came 7 national chart hits, 15 singles, and 8 acclaimed albums. When Billboard Magazine named them “The Most Listened to Band in America,” The Buckinghams became national favorites on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Smothers Brothers’ Comedy Hour, American Bandstand, and more. Thousands of loyal fans remain devoted today, as their hits continue to be heard on oldies radio, classic rock stations, Sirius/XM satellite and Internet channels. Ever as enthusiastic and effervescent as when their records began their ascents up national charts, The Buckinghams’ Giammarese and Fortuna deliver nonstop, high-energy performances that audiences appreciate and request in shows filled with longtime fans, as well as new friends—teens and young adults.
    Today’s stage act is a crowd-pleasing favorite as they deliver a show packed with tremendous music and good humor. Audiences love The Buckinghams today as much as they first did in the 60s. Families book vacations around their regular appearances. With 3 songs on the Top 10 simultaneously, The Buckinghams enjoyed phenomenal success with hit singles including the powerful “Don’t You Care”, the soulful “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy”, and the national anthem of teenage love, “Hey Baby, They’re Playing Our Song”, on the national charts simultaneously. In 1968, the Buckinghams debuted “Susan” on The Ed Sullivan Show. In concerts today, crowds still sing along, “I love you, yes I do”, as audiences love knowing the words to all their songs.

    In 2001, The Buckinghams were part of the successful “Solid Gold 60s” tour, which featured Tommy James & The Shondells, The Turtles, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, and The Grass Roots. PBS featured The Buckinghams on “The Sixties Pop Rock Reunion” in 2004. The Buckinghams headline festivals, play arenas, theatres, and casinos, wherever fans want to hear them. Playing the 2005 Presidential Inaugural Ball was a great honor for The Buckinghams. They were again invited to perform at the Bipartisan Agricultural Ball at the Presidential Inaugural festivities at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Washington, DC, on January 20, 2009.
    From 2008–2009, The Buckinghams released 3 new CDs—“Reaching Back”, “Standing Room Only”, and “The Joy of Christmas”, including favorite holiday standards, plus new tunes from their popular annual Christmas shows. In 2009, The Buckinghams were inducted into the prestigious Hit Parade Hall of Fame. Their 2010 DVD/CD, “Up Close”, features The Buckinghams live in concert at the Star Plaza Theatre. American Entertainment Magazine recently highlighted The Buckinghams as one of their Top 10 bands.

    After highly acclaimed 25th and 26th Anniversary reunion tours, Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna will return for the 2012 Happy Together Tour, as The Buckinghams join The Turtles, Micky Dolenz, The Grass Roots, and Gary Puckett for this national tour. Later this year, Giammarese will release his biography, “Reinventing The Buckinghams: My Journey,” about 45+ years in the dynamic world of music entertainment. He’ll also share a companion CD “Journey: The Music of The Buckinghams and Beyond”, with acoustic arrangements of chart hits and songs from Carl’s career as solo singer, duo member, and as lead vocalist since 1982.

2014 Breathe Deep for Cystic Fibrosis
Event on 2014-10-16 18:00:00

NEW FOR 2014 – Buy your tickets by 8/1/14 and you will be entered to win a 5-night stay all-inclusive stay for two in the Dominican Republic!  Visit this page for more details: http://www.cflf.org/news/breathe-deep-boston

Please note: Tickets will NOT be available at the door.

We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Breathe Deep for CF event in Boston!

Take a Deep Breath and Appreciate Your Lungs. Then  …

Come down to the Harpoon Beer Hall in the Boston Seaport District on October 16th for drinks, socializing, and supporting a great cause: helping the Cystic Fibrosis Lifestyle Foundation help those living with Cystic Fibrosis to live longer, stronger lives.  

CF is one of the most common life-shortening hereditary diseases. It is a progressive, degenerative disease with no known cure. Most individuals with CF die young, many in their 20’s and 30’s from lung failure.  Recent advances are enabling a whole new population of adults with CF, who must become responsible for their own survival.  Maintaining an active lifestyle is one of the best known ways for someone living with CF to not only maintain, but actually improve their health.  While healthy individuals often participate in physical recreation “just for fun”, for these individuals, it can be the difference between life and death, but the cost of activities can be the barrier to entry. 

Support and inspire CF individuals to fight the odds by helping us raise money for CFLF Recreation Grants. These grants will fund gym memberships, skiing/snowboarding lessons, horseback riding, gymnastics, and tons of other activities for people living with CF, offering them fun and free ways to improve their health and self-confidence through physical activity.

In joining us on October 16th, will not only provide you with delicious beer and appetizers, but also the knowledge that you’re helping these individuals live longer, stronger, more enjoyable lives.  There will also be door prizes and a silent auction for you to help this cause.  It's guaranteed to be a fun and unforgettable evening for everyone! 




Brian Callanan, the Founder and Director of CFLF, was diagnosed at birth with CF and was expected to live only to age 8. Having turned 38 this year, and surpassing the median life expecancy, Brian is healthier than ever! Instead of surrendering to the illness, he embraced it—hiking, biking, and swimming his way to amazing lung scores and an impressive, ever-improving projected lifespan. Help him to help others achieve the same.

To date, nearly 500 people with CF have been helped with Recreation Grants totaling over 0,000 in direct assistance. Let’s see if we can raise the funds to help hundreds more!

See you there!
