Acoustic Roadshow plays acoustic versions of the harmony-rich songs many of us grew up with (The Beatles, CSNY, Steely Dan, The Beach Boys). This quartet of seasoned performers showcases both the vocal and instrumental talents of each of its members.
With a musical career spanning decades, Mike is a well-respected member of the Boston musical community. His bass playing and strong vocal ability are always in demand. Acoustic Roadshow is the latest chapter in his musical story. In addition to his years of live performance experience, Michael has sung on numerous radio and TV ads in the Boston market. (Does “1-800-54-GIANT” or “We’re the One for You New England, New England Telephone” bring back any memories?)
An accomplished guitar and mandolin player, Chris is known for his voice, notably singing harmonies. For more than 20 years, he was a core member of a popular cover band, The Swinging Johnsons, playing clubs and private functions around New England. He has also been featured on recordings and performances with local songwriters Kat Chapman and Digney Fignus.
If you have any experience with the Greater Boston music scene, you know who Alex is, and you know why he’s so busy. A gifted drummer, he always plays exactly what you want to hear, what’s right for the song. And his vocals — many know him for the “Sinatra Sundays” he was a part of at Lucky’s Lounge in Southie. But he’s no one trick pony. He can pretty much sing anything he wants to and just nail it. We’re psyched to have him bring “that thing he does” to the bandstand at Sanctuary.
Boston-based jazz blues guitarist Mike DiBari is inspired by B.B. King and Freddie King, among others. He began his studies at the Manhattan School of Music in New York, and in 1994, he earned a bachelor's degree from Berklee, studying with Jon Damian, Jim Kelly, and Jon Finn. After forming the Mike DiBari Swingtet, he formed the Palomino Records label and released his debut album, Jumpin' the Blues (1997). His next two albums, Rotary Ahead! (2003) and Music of the Spheres (2007), featured the Mike DiBari. Mike continues to perform live with many local and national blues and R&B artists including Mud Morganfield (Son of Muddy Waters) and Boston's own Toni Lynn Washington.
