Another Boston music weekend! We've got rock, pop, country and a live concert CD recording with singer songwriter Joe Silva and Ayla Brown, daughter of former United States Senator Scott Brown and wife Gail Huff.
On Friday, The Diezelband is back at the Boathouse, 294 Tyngsboro, Dracut (978) 957-7251. Diezel was formed in 2007 with Gary Massucco, John Mauriello, and Richie Laquidara from the band Busted Nutzz joining Rob Wesinger and Steve Lakos from the Maxwells. This line up remained until January 2010 when Rob had to leave and new singer Sergio Lepore joined the group. This five piece became a four piece in 2011 with the departure of Steve. Recently they are back to being a five piece with the addition of keyboard player Curtis Spargo!
Diezel is one of the hardest working bands in the area, covering a wide variety of songs from heavy to poppy, rock to rap, edgy to mellow and the list goes on.
Rock and roll blues is The Throwdown Band who will be at Celley's Pub, 742 Western Ave., Lynn, (781)595-9260 on Friday night. The ThrowDown Band came in to the Boston music scene in late 2009, and in a short time attained the reputation of a band to be reckoned with in the New Blues Era. Their first release, “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie”, was selected as the ‘Best Self-produced CD’ by the Boston Blues Society, and was submitted to the IBC for inclusion in the 2012 International Blues Competition, in Memphis. http://www.reverbnation.com/throwdown
