Anthony Geraci and the Boston Blues All-Stars

Pianist/Hammond Organist Anthony Geraci has a long History in the American Blues Community. He is an original member of Sugar Ray and the Bluetones, and Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters-he has recorded with both Artists extensively. Anthony has been nominated for the Prestigious Pinetop Perkins Piano Award for the last three years-2016/2017/2018, and his recording Fifty Shades Of Blues (Delta Groove) was nominated in 2016 for Album, Traditional Album, and Song of the Year for the title track by the Blues Foundation/Blues Music Awards in Memphis, TN. 2018 has Anthony receiving nominations from both Living Blues Magazine: Outstanding Musician-Keyboard, and Downbeat Magazine Readers Poll: Blues Artist or Group.

Touring with Anthony in support of his latest recording Why Did You Have To Go (Shining Stone) will be the Boston Blues All-Stars: Dennis Brennan-vocals/harmonica/guitar, Troy Gonyea-guitar/vocals, Michael Mudcat Ward-bass/vocals and Jeff Armstrong-drums/vocals.

Anthony has been featured on over 50 recordings with some of the biggest names in Blues Music. He has recorded with Blues Pioneers Big Walter Horton, Carey Bell, Odetta, Big Jack Johnson, Charlie Musselwhite, Lazy Lester, Snooky Pryor and John Brim. As well as contemporary Artists Kenny Neal, Sugaray Rayford, Debbie Davies, Otis Grand, Welch/Ledbetter, Zora Young and Duke Robillard.

DENNIS BRENNAN

Boston's own Dennis Brennan has a musical legacy that needs no introduction. Think of the J. Geils Band, Morphine, and Willie Alexander for starters. At the heart of the scene, though, is an artist like Dennis Brennan. He's a cagey veteran who hasn't won similar fame but can electrify audiences with his ability to cross brilliantly from rock to soul, blues, country, and jazz, while breathing fresh life into each. On several nights a week, Brennan bops around New England clubs with a passion that is all too rare in today's homogenized music climate.Longtime friend Peter Wolf of the J. Geils Band, offers this praise of his comrade: "The biggest challenge for any artist is to sustain and keep growing. Many musicians who stick with it can fall into a trap of becoming parodies of themselves. Dennis has always kept maturing, which is one of the hardest challenges, and that's why I always enjoy checking him out."

MICHAEL MUDCAT WARD

2018 Blues Music Award Winner Michael "Mudcat" Ward has been a key player in the New England blues scene for nearly forty years. His signature traditionally-grounded approach and tone, both on the acoustic upright bass and on Fender bass, have gracefully supported many a roots artist over the years, whether in the recording studio, in clubs, theaters, outdoor venues, or on television broadcasts or film.

Ward was an integral component of the debut LP of Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters (entitled Smokin'-along with Geraci) and of Earl's subsequent six recordings. Among Ward's many recordings, his bass lines can be heard backing such blues musical giants as Big Walter Horton (on Little Boy Blue and Live At the Bocce Club-with Geraci); Jimmy Rogers (with Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters Live in Germany); Kim Wilson and guitarists Jimmy Vaughan, Wayne Bennett and Ronnie Earl on pianist/vocalist Ron Levy's initial Wild Kingdom; Robert "Junior" Lockwood on Earl's Surrounded By Love CD; the 2001 Grammy-nominated CD Superharps I featuring James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Billy Branch and Sugar Ray Norcia; the 2002 follow-up Superharps II, with blues harmonica greats Lazy Lester, Snooky Pryor, Carey Bell and Raful Neal-with Geraci; and the late pianist Pinetop Perkins (On Top and Back On Top.)

About 25 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 free parking (see map).

In April 2017, after 4 years of presenting over a hundred award-winning concerts at Beverly's Larcom Theatre, we transformed 9 Wallis into 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, 9 Wallis owners, Peter and Vickie Van Ness, were presented with the Boston Blues Society's Keeping the Blues Alive Award for their work at 9 Wallis.

This beautifully restored, tremendously flexible space is also available for fundraisers, private parties and corporate events. Local charities have raised thousands of dollars at 9 Wallis.
