LOMA Open Mike featuring Beantown Buckaroos Trio
The Beantown Buckaroos Trio is the feature (beantownbuckaroos.com). This subset of the full band includes three singers: Art Schatz on fiddle, Kevin Lynch on guitar and Neil Helme on bass. They’ll cook up classic western swing and country music with a dash of gumbo. The Buckaroos are an exciting, fun-loving local band. They’ve delighted audiences at venues like SallyO’s and the Burren, summer concert events, and big festivals like Joe Val Bluegrass. Their sound captures the verve of Bob Wills, Merle Travis and Hot Club of Cowtown. The Buckaroos combine well-honed harmony singing with high-level instrumental play. For a nice sample of them in action, watch their cover of the Shelton Brothers’ classic, Just Because. This song is also a track on the Buckaroos’ 2020 CD Live from the Bunkhouse. Take this opportunity to hear The Beantown Buckaroos Trio at our small, informal venue!
LOMA is a monthly event. For a slot, performers should email Rich Eilbert at [email protected] (before noon of the open-mike day), or (space permitting) sign up at the event. Names of those who are signed up by 7:00 will be drawn at random. We have a sound system with mikes and instrumental pickups suitable for individuals or small groups playing acoustic style. Brad Meyer ably handles the sound. You are encouraged to sign up well in advance. We expect everyone will have a chance to perform, but in case of overflow, the first 20 performers to sign up will be given priority.
