The Kenny Brothers open
DAN & THE WILDFIRE
Dan & the Wildfire began in 2011 as an indie/folk trio. Since then, the Boston-based outfit has evolved into a “soulful rock n’ roll” quintet. Though their sound is ever-changing, the core of the band hinges upon carefully crafted lyrics, saturating vocal harmonies, and high-level musicianship.
In early 2018, the group began to record and release “The River’s Gonna Rise,”: a multivolume project that saw its first installment delivered to listeners this winter. With two studio albums in tow, Dan & the Wildfire’s most recent offering is proving to be their most impactful, personal, and genuine yet. When listening to The River’s Gonna Rise, expect an emotional and sonic roller coaster, complete with soaring solos, bluesy guitar riffs, and honest poetry.
Whether on a large stage, like Foxwoods Resort Casino’s Grand Pequot Theater or a smaller stage like Harvard Square’s famous Club Passim, Dan & the Wildfire brings the same passion and intensity to every performance. Armed with new music, the @DATWILDFIRE crew, as you’ll find them on social media, is ready to show you why they’re soon to be your new favorite band.
THE KENNY BROTHERS
The Kenny Brothers Band is an improvisational Mountain-Rock Band from the backwoods of Stratham, New Hampshire. Made up of three brothers, they perform original songs with roots in alternative-folk music, accompanied by warm-hearted lyrics and earth-derived grooves. The band was found in 2014 when all three of them realized they shared a true passion for music. It was time to move out of their parent's basement and be heard by music fanatics alike.
Their debut album, Walk in the Woods, was selected to be in the best Seacoast music in 2016 according to the Seacoast Scene. “[Walk in the Woods’} weaves between trees, circles past the no trespassing sign onto the path less traveled and eventually doubles back home to sing about the adventure,” says Siri Undlin from Ear to the Ground Music.
Being brothers, Billy 28, Taylor 27, and Joey 22, they all grew up listening to their parent's records while spending quality time in the outdoors. This as well as Joey’s adventures in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas inspired the creation of their debut record. Walk in the Woods examines how nature is an escaoe from technology and modern pressures of society. Through stories about traveling, girls, self-doubt, and independence, The Kenny Brothers illustrate a way of life that has a greater emphasis on passion instead of the career. “One of the band’s greatest assets is their brotherhood. Growing up listening to the same music, along with their shared love of the outdoors, has made for a successful partnership,” says Charlie Weinmann from The Sound.
