The UnCommon Jam (Aug 27)
Sunday, August 27
2 PM – 7 PM
Enjoy an afternoon of great music with Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band, Dwight & Nicole and the Joe Moore Band on the beautiful Newbury Vermont Common. Fesast on culinary delights from the region, sample craft brews and have fun with lawn games!
Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over.
Dwight & Nicole is a three piece original blues-soul-rock band fronted by Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson. Ritcher and Nelson are both well known on the East Coast for their powerful voices and songwriting. Together, they have toured up and down the Northeast, growing a fiercely loyal fan base, and self releasing two award winning albums through crowd funding. The Boston Globe calls them “A tour de force that demands much wider success” and describes their sound as “poignant, hard-driving and heavenly.”
Joe Moore and The Joe Moore Band perform a wide variety of American rhythm & blues, funk, and jazz, based in Joe’s life-long experience as a powerhouse saxophone player and vocalist. Performances are rooted Moore’s life of playing alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, often working and touring with original composers. His powerful saxophone has developed a reputation for intense, high energy performances, stunning technique and musical prowess.
