When future music historians look back at the strong currents circulating between the Americas in the 21st century, they will find Los Lobos, Calexico, and a charismatic, lanky Missourian singing tight harmony with a Southern belle rattling the jawbone of a donkey. David Wax and Suz Slezak form the artistic core of the David Wax Museum, and together with multi-instrumentalist Greg Glassman, fuse traditional Mexican folk with American roots and indie rock to create a Mexo-Americana aesthetic. Combining Latin rhythms, infectious melodies, and call-and-response hollering, DWM was hailed by TIME for its “virtuosic musical skill and virtuous harmonies” and has built a reputation among concertgoers all over the U.S, Canada, Europe and China for “kicking up a cloud of excitement with their high-energy border-crossing sensibility” (The New Yorker). The bonfire of success David Wax Museum has kindled with its innovative, grass-roots approach is currently roaring. After years busking at house concerts and touring with The Avett Brothers, the Carolina Chocolate Drops and the Old 97s, DWM picked up the 2010 Boston Music Awards Americana Artist of the Year.
Built in 1914 and opened the following year, the historic The Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH is reputedly the oldest continuously operating movie theatre in the country. Given new life in 2001 as a non-profit community cultural center presenting independent cinema, world class music and high quality family entertainment, the 300 seat The Colonial Theatre offers an intimate and authentic entertainment experience. Beer and wine are served at most age appropriate events and intermission with a cold beverage on our 1,400 square foot covered patio is what summer is all about. Come join us and be part of it!
