Cold Engines' long awaited and most ambitious CD Release to date sets the bar even higher for this award-winning Boston band. Brought together by David Drouin and Aaron Zaroulis of The Brew, this all star cast of artists brings together a mix of soul, new wave, rock, and dance all across the country.
After exploding on the Northeast scene and releasing 4 records inside of 3 years, the band has been seen sharing stages with their heroes and honing their instantly identifiable sound.
Honey Talk is southern rock from the north, 70s rock from today, and 90s alternative sensibilities for the millennial mainstream. They are Boston's fresh, innovative, and comfortable Roots-Rock quartet that loves to Rock while honoring their Roots. Their sound relies heavily on vocal harmony, rhythmic persistence, improvisation, and compositional dedication.
The band released an EP entitled "'Real Original' Songs, Vol. 1" in the fall of 2018. They have been performing throughout the Northeast at venues such as Infinity Hall (Norfolk CT), Empire Music Hall (Portland ME), and Atwood's Tavern, and TOAD (Cambridge MA) and have been featured on radio stations such as 90.9 WUMB (Boston) and WEMF (Internet radio).
About 17 miles north of Boston, award-winning 9 Wallis is a gorgeous, fully restored, historic location conveniently situated in the heart of Downtown Beverly's Arts District at 9 Wallis Street, right next to the Larcom Theatre -- less than half a mile from the Beverly Depot rail station and 3 miles from Route 128, with plenty of nearby parking (see map).
In April 2017, after 4 years of presenting over a hundred shows at Beverly's Larcom Theatre (featuring Grammy-winners, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers and platinum recording artist), gimmeLIVE's owners Peter and Vickie Van Ness, transformed 9 Wallis into the most intimate, elegant, fully air conditioned listening room north of Boston with comfortable seating at tables, plus food & beverage service offering fine wines, local craft beers, specialty cocktails (featuring local distilleries and all-natural juices) and top-shelf spirits.
In August 2018, Peter and Vickie were presented with the Boston Blues Society's Keeping the Blues Alive Award for their work at 9 Wallis.
Because of its beautifully restored, tremendously flexible space with the best dance floor on Boston's North Shore, 9 Wallis has become a favorite venue for fundraisers, private parties and corporate events. Local charities have raised thousands of dollars at 9 Wallis (see examples). With world-class entertainment, an event can begin as a cocktail party or fully seated dinner...then transform into a nightclub-style dance party with concert quality sound and stage lighting.
There is plenty of nearby parking at 7 lots from 150 feet away to 3 blocks away. Lots are 25 Cents/Hour (see map). Street parking is more. All parking is FREE after 8pm and on Sundays.
