Last night , my very special house guests Two Ton Boa gave a concert. Sherry Fraser is the brainchild behind this endeavor. If I had to describe her powerful multi-range, multi-characters blues based rock tonality voice to the uninitiated, I would say imagine Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick era : “White Rabbit” meets PJ Harvey. A very expressive and passionate voice. Right up my alley so to speak and I have to come right out and say that I love it. This line-up features strong musicianship and make note of Chris and his insane playing! Two Ton Boa are on tour right now promoting the new c.d. ” Parasiticide.” Sherry is a star, folks. Consider yourself lucky if you catch her on this tour. www.twotonboa.com

Envie, with their Baroque version of what to my ears is European pop music as in a modern French film, opened the show last night with a full 4 piece band including Renee Nelson on vocals, harp, and keys and world-class Chandler Rentz (on loan from his band Snowden) on drums. Envie’s first entrancing c.d. can be yours from : www.enviemusic.com
