92.5 The River, Boston’s independent and solar-powered radio station is gearing up for a free lunch time concert in honor of Earth Day from noon-3pm. The concert will take place on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, a new model of dynamic outdoor space that brings Bostonians together to enjoy everything that’s great about the city. The Greenway will be transformed into a fun outdoor atmosphere that includes free music, arts and crafts and other activities.
About the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway:
The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, a vibrant, mile-long ribbon of open space, was created when Boston’s elevated six-lane highway was demolished and the Central Artery Project completed. Now, four of Boston’s most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods – formerly divided by a massive structure of steel and asphalt – are linked by beautifully landscaped parks, gardens, and plazas, and those who live, work, and visit Boston can enjoy a renewed connection to Boston’s dynamic Harbor.
About the Performers:
Twenty three years after their T-Bone Burnett produced debut Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams led them to win a Rolling Stone reader’s poll as “Best New American Band,” The BoDeans are still rocking and harmonizing gracefully, touring the U.S. regularly and exposing the kids of their longtime steadfast fans to real, heartfelt and trend-free music. Best known for their mid-90’s Billboard Top 20 hit anthem “Closer To Free,” which became the theme song for Fox’s “Party Of Five,” the dynamic musical duo—Kurt Neumann (vocals and electric guitar) and Sam Llanas (vocals and acoustic guitar)—is still focused on, as Neumann says, “writing songs that bring good things to the world.
While Colin Hay’s voice and visage are familiar to millions as front-man, song-writer, and vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (“Down Under,” Overkill,” “Who Can it Be Now?”), the past ten years have found him re-introducing himself to a new generation of fans. The frequent use of his music in TV and film-including hit shows such as Scrubs (on which he has made several cameo appearances) and Army Wives, the hit sound track to the film Garden State and the recently released Morning Glory-has proven the timeless appeal of his songs: quizzical, curious, cynical yet open-hearted.
This jam band from Martha's Vineyard was formed by drummer Tom Major in 1993. Other personnel include guitarist/lead vocalist Brian Alex; conga, djembe, and trombone player Sam Holmstock; bassist Ned "Towering Inferno" Nugent; conga player Hilary Noble; and Klem Klimek on the saxophone. This multifaceted ensemble unites to produce music that melds a number of styles, from funk to klezmer, creating a kind of ethnic and musicological soup onstage. Entrain reaches across more genres than most jam bands, but still manage to have an improvisational quality to their music. Their live show is what really shines, but they have released several albums, including Can U Get It, No Matter What, and 2000's All On.
