Mystery Meat Videos


Formed in the fall of 2016 Mystery Meat is a collaboration of musicisans who's other projects include: Dutch Oven, Runaround, Exit 11, and Thrill Ride. It all started when Bruce Figurido and Jim Frontiero ran into each other at a bar. Bruce said we should start a new band, Jim agreed and said, the first thing we need is a rock solid drummer, "do you know Steve Russo" asked Bruce? and Jim said "oh my god that's exactly who I was thinking of" the rest is history. Bruce brought in Marc Bona on bass and the four started rehearsing and compiling a set list. From the inception we knew we wanted to create a different type of cover band, a sound and more importantly a felling that in our opinion was missing from the local club scene. All the stuff you hear on the radio today with old school 90's hip hop and rap sprinkled in and delivered with an in your face rock show feel.

We knew if we were going to go down this road we would definitely need to add a female vocalist, enter Jessica Marie Marques. Steve and Jess worked together in Thrill Ride and this pint size power house completed the Mystery Meat sound.

The first few shows we're well attended and quickly helped establish a loyal following of fans we fondly refer to as MEATHEADS.

"We want our music to make you dance, sing out loud, stomp your feet and bang your head!"

Mystery Meat is: Marc Bona - Bass
Bruce Figurido - Vocals
Jim Frontiero - Guitar
Jessica Marie Marques - Vocals
Steve Russo - Drums

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.
