To understand Bella’s Bartok, imagine what you would get if Salvador Dali and Toulouse Lautrec were fronting the Moulin Rouge’s house band, and you have the exuberant spectacle that is Bella’s Bartok. Described as “about as much fun as you can have with your pants on” (Dan Wolovick, Two Way Monologues), this 7-piece powerhouse melds Bohemian Klezmer Punk with pop sensibilities into an eminently danceable party. The diversity of musicians that make up Bella’s Bartok, combined with their boundless energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or three, but who’s counting?). Their sound moves way beyond labels, pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern European music, referencing vaudeville and 20th century eclecticism.

The Bella’s Bartok line-up includes: Asher Putnam (Vocals and all-around entertainer), Chris “Fancy” Kerrigan (Guitar, Clarinet, Vocals and physicist!?!), Dan Niederhauser (Bass and Vocals), Amory Drennan (Trombone/Banjo and Vocals), Crisco (Drums/Percussion and Trumpet) and Gershon Rosen (trumpet). The band has shared the stage with musicians and acts such as Rubblebucket, Red Baraat, The Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, Kanye, Rough Francis, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan, West End Blend, Adam Ezra Group, Meat Puppets, World Inferno/Friendship Society, Rupa & the April Fishes, Arc Iris, and many more.

With multiple awards under their belts, including The Valley Advocate’s Best Band in the Valley 2014 and The Deli Magazine’s Best of New England (twice!), this eclectic group of guys have carefully crafted a sound that is part strange and creepy, part pop gold. With an aura of theatricality, Bella’s Bartok shows not only entertain, but they invite you to partake in the wild party they are having on stage, to involve yourself in the spectacle. Quite simply put- this is the band you should never miss, ever.

SINCE THEIR CONCEPTION, CT-BASED FUNK/SOUL BAND WEST END BLEND HAS BEEN PLAYING THEIR VERSION OF FUNK AND SOUL IN VENUES ALL OVER THE NORTHEAST. FRONTED BY VOCALIST ERICA T. BRYAN, THE BAND PAYS HOMAGE TO CLASSIC THROWBACK SOUNDS WHILE ADDING THEIR OWN DISTINCT VIBE AND FLAIR. BEHIND HER, THE BLEND PACKS TWO GUITARS, A TWO-PIECE HORN SECTION, BASS, KEYBOARDS AND DRUMS ONTO STAGES EVERY NIGHT. FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS IN AN EPIC SWEATY FUNKY  BASEMENT DANCE PARTY, THE BLEND’S GOAL HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO BRING THAT SAME ATMOSPHERE TO EVERY SHOW EVER SINCE.  

THE BLEND RELEASED THEIR DEBUT FULL LENGTH RECORD, “REWIND”, IN THE FALL OF 2015. THE ALBUM WAS RECORDED AT TELEFUNKEN STUDIOS WITH GRAMMY AWARD WINNING ENGINEER, BRENDAN MORAWSKI. ALONGSIDE THEIR ALBUM RELEASE, WEST END BLEND SHARED THE STAGE WITH CHARLES BRADLEY, TURKUAZ, MEMBERS OF SNARKY PUPPY AND LETTUCE, BREAK SCIENCE, KUNG FU, TWIDDLE, SISTER SPARROW & THE DIRTY BIRDS, THE NTH POWER, THE MOTET AND COUNTLESS OTHERS JAM/FUNK STAPLES. ON SEPTEMBER 28TH, 2016 THE BLEND RELEASED THEIR LATEST EP “SAY HEY!” AS THEY EMBARKED ON THEIR FALL TOUR ACROSS THE NORTHEAST.  THROUGHOUT THEIR FALL TOUR THEY SHARED THE STAGE WITH DOPAPOD, THE NTH POWER, TURKUAZ, HAYLEY JANE & THE PRIMATES, DEEP BANANA BLACKOUT AND MORE. AFTER RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR ALONGSIDE TURKUAZ AND KUNG FU IS PROVIDENCE, RI, THE BLEND TOOK OFF ON THEIR 2017 WINTER TOUR, WHICH SPANNED FROM VERMONT DOWN TO DC AND FROM MASSACHUSETTS OUT TO OHIO, AS THE BAND BEGAN TO EMERGE OUT OF THE NORTHEAST. THROUGHOUT 2017, THE BAND HAS CONTINUED TO PUSH BEYOND THE NORTHEAST
