The Chieftains...that would be amazing
I'd love to see Neil Young here or Don Mclean. That would bring back a flood of high-school memories. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young would be kewl too.
Nanci Griffith would be excellent. I saw her perform at Hampton Beach Casino, with John Prine, and she was amazing!
The "Waifs"...!! Couldn't help but think of this Australian band when I recently saw "Fruit"...And what about "Entrain"?? I see they are playing at "Whippersnappers" this month...Right band, wrong spot for those of us who adore the scene at Tupelo!Thanks much for last night's "Roomful of Blues"! Tupelo rocks! :-)Diane
We agree with Alyssa...the Chieftains WOULD be amazing!Also, a couple of thoughts "outside the box"... wondering if you ever thought of doing a kid's music concert maybe with Tom Chapin, Steve Blunt, or Norman Foote? Maybe on a Sunday afternoon?Another thought... a kid's show with professional storytellers. There are several in the local area including Jennifer Armstrong (http://www.jenniferarmstrong.com/) Papa Joe, and Storyteller Shawn.Feel free to laugh if these are too "out there"!Love the site!
Nanci just played Club Passim...135 seats @ $100 ticket. Sold out immediately. Entrain is a band that I have been thinking about. That would be a great night! I didn't know that they were playing at Whippersnappers...HMMM
Hey Scott, how about Tracy Grammer? She's at Passim's in October.....maybe you can bring her to Londonderry on that Friday.....
I like Tracy Grammer a lot. Our schedule is booked solid in October but we will get her in the room eventually. Probably on a split bill.
Any chance in getting Susan Tedesci? She's a local...well, Boston. (close enough). She'd be awesome. Keep up the great work Tupelo, you're our favorite hot spot!
A hot up-and-coming, local band...Westbound Train. Keep them in mind for an fresh, interesting sound. www.westboundsound.com They are picking up a following around the country and they'll be off on tour in Europe this fall. Might be worth considering soon!

ANI DIFRANCO!!!! That would be so cool... and Alana Davis. Those would be two great ones for me!But I will keep saying ANI DIFRANCO! :)
Ani is HUGE in this area. In another part of the country it could happen. Alana Davis is someone that I have been considering. She is really good and getting a fair amount of airplay these days.
Someone told me the other night that Mountain Heart would be great to have. They're a pretty awesome bluegrass band. The websites www.mountainheart.com. and bluegrass fans travel! I also heard the band Carbon leaf in Copley plaza last night. They were pretty cool, about the same size as Stephen Kellogg.
It would be amazing to see Mountain Heart at Tupelo. Lots of people would travel from all over the country to see them. www.mountainheart.com for band information.
Does anyone know if John Lincoln Wright is still around? George just pulled out and dusted off some of his stuff and we were just wondering...couldn't find anything online, so I am thinking not.
Just was listening to Leo Kottke, a 12 string master. I think he'd be great for the Hall. Just so happens he's in New England in October from the 26th through the end of the month and has an open date on the 27th. That's an Open Mic Night, but.... well, it's just a thought.
Dave Matthews solo would be awesome...but i don't know if he ever does any shows solo anymore...he used to.
Trachy Chapman...local (Boston) and pretty popular. Probably for Pinkerton.
How about brining Keith Lewis back as an opening act for someone. He was awesome at the open mic night last week - an amazing voice and terrific guitar playing.
I'd love to see a couple of fairly new guys that I've been hearing on The River - Kyle Riabko and/or Amos Lee. Also, Eliza Gilkyson is playing w/Richard Thompson in Somerville in October - she's great!
Kyle Riabko and Amos Lee are two artists that we are currently trying to get into the room. They are both great.
John Wesley Harding. He recently played Passim but maybe his next swing through the area.
Saw this in the Boston Globe today...she is a New Hampshire native. Haven't heard her but might be interesting to check out."Introducing Britt Kirk. She grew up in New Hampshire and played every instrument in her school's music department, anything she could get her hands on. From trumpets, to baritone horns, to saxophones, and drums...Kirk's love of music continued to grow. She moved to the Boston-area a little over two years ago and started playing the guitar and singing at open mics, coffee shops, bars, and even busking in the subway. She has found a cozy home in the rich Boston music scene.
Hi Scott,There is SO MUCH great Canadian music that never makes it south of the border. I would absolutely LOVE to see Blue Rodeo at Tupelo (they're touring this late Sept/Oct in the states). Kathleen Edwards is a GREAT show. Cash Brothers/Skydiggers. Shannon Lyon. Oh Susanna. The Swallows. Bob Egan. I've sent Blue Rodeo your website as well :)
I recently heard music from a band from Virginia called The Marzaks... their style is folk with a punk influence, and it makes for a very fun sound. I recommend them.
Indigo Girls would be great in such an intimate setting as well.
I love John Wesley Harding! I'd also love to see Antje Duvekot (not sure of the spelling?) and Beth Orton.
Entrain is a great suggestion! Another local musician could be Sleep LaBeef. He's a wonderful entertainer:)
Anna Nalick. Beautiful voice and she has not caught on really hugely, so she probably would not be impossible.
It would be nice to see Cherish the Ladies....AlsoCathy Ryan. She used to sing with Cherish the Ladies and is on her own now and is amazing.
Hi Scott,I noticed you mentioned English Beat - was there any interest? I was a huge fan, would love to see them. Also saw Anna Nalick and Amos Lee mentioned, they'd be great too. How about Jackie Green? (Another River artist - song samples on his website.) Can't wait to see John Eddie again!
I recently saw a couple of great opening acts - Frank Morey opened for Keb Mo at the Lowell Summer Music Series - a very talented blues artist and Girlyman opened for Dar Williams at Sanders Theater - the harmony is absolutley amazing!
I would like to see Lucinda Willaims or Kathleen Edwards
Looking back, I was very pleased to see Ollabelle and Fruit.Your support for Kate Klim has been nothing less than stellar. When she breaks into the big time, Tupelo can claim to be her launching pad.Looking forward (big names): Richard Thompson, Dar Williams, John Renbourn & Jacqui McShee, Brooks Williams, Chris Smither, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Jeramy Irion, Geoff Bartley, David Grissman, Les Visible, Christopher Williams.Local (generally Massachusetts based) musicians to watch: Lloyd Thayer, The Resophonics, Session Americana, Brian Webb (RI), Ailstair Moock, Steve Mayone, Joel Cage (NH), Josh Cole, Raymond Gonzalez, Danielle Miraglia, Robin O'Herin, Katrin Roush, Dennis Brennan, Jim's Big Ego.Worthy of a special invitation to an open mic: Chip Quinn, Jess Yoakum, John Gerrard, Liz Kelly (NYC), Abby Lappen (NY), Evan Greer.
Would love to see The Old Crow Medicine Show- Great taditional old time music plus "newer" songs along the lines of Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan, Doc Watson, Doc Boggs, Sam McGee & Woody Guthrie.
Hot Tuna or The Acoustic Strawbs would be a great addition to your lineup.
How about Greg Brown?
Lynn Miles from Canada...very talented singer songwriter, Darden Smith another great singer songwriter would be a good one.
Martyn Jospeh. Just drove 4 hours to see him play. He was unbelievable...and worth every second of traffic.
How about Greg Brown? Also Roy Book Binder??
Hey Scott, Here are a few names I would like to see; David Bromberg, David Francy, Kelly Joe Phelps, Danny Schmidt, Jeffery Foucault, Tish Hinojosa, Malcomb Holcomb, Leo Kottke, and Greg Brown. Keep up the good work!
I would also like to see the Acoustic Strawbs.
We'd love to see Christopher Williams play Tupelo. And Antje Duvekot would be pretty cool, too.
Jen Chapin would be great.
Loudon Wainwright III Would be a real hoot, very talented and funny.
It looks like Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco) will be touring this year. It would be great if he made a stop at Tupelos.
How about Keren Ann?
Just received an email about Sarah Harmer's US tour schedule. She's great - I'd love to see her at Tupelo.
How about Kevin Briody?
Amy Ray, Cordero (terrific latin base with folk/rock overtones), The Great Unknowns (amazing... formerly all of Boston, folk rock with country overtones) Athens Boys Choir (as an opener - make-you-think spoken-word performance)Yes, it's true, I'm very well-enamored with the bands of Daemon Records.Also, Cosy Sheridan (grew up in Concord, NH), The Mammals (opened for Arlo's previous tour), Night Heron Consort.If you really wanted to rock the house, there's a band named Three 5 Human that's been opening for the Indigo Girls, and I'd love to see them do their own show, gather some fans in the northeast, etc., etc., etc.As mentioned by others... Anna Nalick, Leo Kottke, Girlyman.
I would love to see Les Visible perform. He is the finest songwriter going today and that Wille Nelson/Johnny Cash hybrid voice is out of this world.
Again I must mention Loudon Wainwright III, you would not be disappointed, consider it, is all I ask
Richard Shindell again would be great
Thanks Jim - Richard Shindell plays Tupelo every year. Check for new bookings in the weekly emails I send out (which are also posted each week on the Tupelo BLOG).
Lets see so many but some favorites that I would love to see: Savage Garden, Seal, Annie Lennox, Duncan Shiek, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Rusted Roots, Human League, Christopher Cross, Jars Of Clay, Fiona Apple, Clannad, Natalie Merchant, Jimmy Scott, Maxwell, Level 42, Dave Matthews....Is that enough?!#@ lol
World Party- absolutely....Also:Dar WilliamsLuka BloomBilly Bragg
You really MUST book Kym Tuvim. She's absolutely amazing! And of course, the more shows you book with Jonatha Brooke, the happier I'll be!
Hi Andrea. I let Scott know about your posting. We love Jonatha as well. FYI, here's the article I did for 'The Hippo' after her first performance at Tupelo - http://www.hippopress.com/boomers/jonathabrooke050428.htmlBruce
Would love to see DeVotchKa. (For those not knowing what they sound like, go to http://www.devotchka.net/)
There is a lot of good local electronic music around. Check out the Boston Society of Mechanics for a taste: http://www.bsm.us/index-6.htmlA little bit a diversity would go a long way.
I'd like to see Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. I, unfortunately, didn't get to see them, but they were just at the Lowell Summer Music Series and I heard they were great!
There is a lot good local electronic music around. check out the Boston Society of Mechanics: http://www.bsm.us/index-6.htmlA little bit of diversity would help. Also some ska would be great.
Any rhythum, blues or soul music,especially Donna Summer, Souled Out (not the one from this region), The Temtations.
I would love to see High Range and Late Bloomers!
Acts I'd like to see;Peter CaseBig Sandy and the Flyrite BoysWayne "The Train" HancockSlaid ClevesJon NolanFairport ConventionAnd what about some of these"Weird folk" preformers I'vebeen reading about lately?The Espers for example
I just thought of a few more.Dan Zanes, Hip kid's musicand he is from N.H.I'd vote for John Wesley Harding,there are a bunch of us from Concord who try to catch him everytime he comes around.and just about everyone whoplays at Johnny D's in Sommervillewould be a good fit.
I would be interested in seeing Tony Bird and Pierce Pettis.
Tupelo would be perfect for GrooveLily!
Couple ideas:The Bad PlusJohn ScofieldJazz Mandolin ProjectAssembly of DustVorcza Trio (I missed that show)
Forgot to mention:Ben TaylorSonya KitchellSoulive
The State Theater in the Wash DC metro area area reminds me a lot of Tupelo - small, relaxed and with many good acts. I saw John Eddie at Tupelo and would go see him a couple times a year. Dave Mason is still incredible and I'm a big Merle Haggard fan. Brian Auger's Oblivion Express would be very cool. Thanks
I'd love to see Henry Gross. He'd be perfect for this venue
I have been to Tupelos to see Lori Mckenna, what a fantastic venue! I would love to see either Tracy Chapman, or Joan Armatrading, or Lucinda Williams. Just to name a few!
You should try to get the Adam Ezra Group. http://www.adamezra.com/Also State Radio would be great as well.http://www.stateradio.com/
http://www.henrygross.com/I can hear him playing "Shannonnow...sweet.
Rodney Crowell and Jim Lauderdale
Rodney Crowell, Jim Lauderdale, and Mary Gauthier.
Rodney Crowell, Jim Lauderdale, Mary Gauthier.
Alejandro EscovedoRod Picott - He used to live inDover,moved to Nashville andhas toured Europe and AustraliaAsylum Street SpankersSouthern Culture on The Skids
I'd love to see James Krueger. He's big in the Catskill Mountains in New York; has played in Sunapee,New Londonand Warner in N.H. His website is:jameskrueger.com.Check it out!
Jackopierce would rock the house! Also would second the suggestion of Kyle Riabko - we actually saw him open for Jackopierce at Club Passim and they were both fabulous.Thanks for all you do!
I have been told that Ray LaMontagne is from the New England area and it would be great to see him at the Tupelo if he would play. Also some other favorites: Jamie Cullum, Ambrosia, Boz Scaggs, K.D. Lang, George Michael (Boy George from Culture Club), Tracey Chapman are all artist that I know would draw in a good group of people like always at the Tupelo! Thanks
Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Donna The Buffalo, Railroad Earth
I'd love to see Shadowfax (not sure if they still tour), Tracy Chapman and how about Kate Bush??? That would be incredible!!!
Dave Mallet--he is awesome and a local boy (Maine)
Anyone heard of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals? Saw her at the Lowell Summer Music Series, and she blew the crowd away! She seems to have a loyal following (from Vt)...but it's easy to sense that she's on the cusp of something BIG! I have heard her on WXRV ("Brunch by the River")...Debbie Davies is another name. She is a blues artist...and has played locally (Boogie n Blues, the old Rynborn...)
How about more international artists like Vusi Mahlasela?
Toby Lightman!I would love to see her play at Tupelo.Also Paul Doucette, Mindy Smith or Antigone Rising any or all of the above would be amazing.
Hmm, where do I begin. Vusi Mahlasela would be amazing at Tupelo. Incredible voice, amazing performer, and a new album due out next year! Ive seen him several times the past few years, and he's easily the most riveting performer Ive ever seen.And how about Abigail Washburn (beautiful singer & banjo player). How about M Ward? his last two albums are amazing.And I concur with other posters about Susan Tedesci, Grace Potter, Sarah Harmer and of course Lucinda Williams would be a dream show.
I would love to see Michael Franti solo,and Utah Phillips who will be in cambridge in March.Regina Spektor also.Thanks.
David Lindley is coming to the area in April. That would be cool.
Strawbs - acoustic or electric set would be great. I recently saw them in Cambridge and The Tupelo would be a great place for them. They will be on tour again next fall. Still time to book them??
Would LOVE to see Brandi Carlile, Amos Lee or Paolo Nutini. Keep up the great work, I love it there!
This might already happen without the suggestion since Chris Trapper already plays there fairly often, but I'd love to see The Push Stars play at Tupelo when they tour this Fall.I've also got to second the Antigone Rising suggestion. Those ladies are amazing.If Vertical Horizon ever get back to the point where they're touring again then I'd love to see them back in a smaller venue again.If Barenaked Ladies side projects Kevin Hearn and Thinbuckle, The Brothers Creeggan or The Cousins do a tour in the area then I'd love to see them as well.Don't know if Ben Folds or Guster would be possible, but I'd love to see them play Tupelo as well.
I'd love to see Taj Mahal. He puts on the most amazing show! He works hard for his audience and every show is a powerhouse.
I agree that Taj Mahal would be great in a small room like this. Even better, though, would be David Bromberg. I know he didn't do much live performing for quite a while, but he's back on the road a lot more now. The Music Hall is perfect for him, and vice versa.
Sara Bareilles would be great...(http://www.sarabmusic.com/)
How about Andy Pratt. Big hit was "Avenging Annie". He's alive and well and living in Amesbury,MA. http://www.andy-pratt.com
Has Peter Mulvey played at Tupelo? I saw him last night at the Peterborough Players Theater - his music was great and he was a riot!
Bonnie Raitt! She would rock the house. Lucinda Williams is another good one. Thanks for all you do.
I'd love to see Josh Stone or KT Tunsall.
Has anyone suggested Paolo Nutini? I've been listening to him on The River.
I'd like to see local hero Charlie Farren at Tupelo. He is a perfect match for such a cool and intimate setting, and he would sell out for sure!
Charlie Farren actually just did play Tupelo on May 19. The show was great!
Two bands from the same roots. The Yonrico Scott Band (YSB), everything that you like about the Derek Trucks Band (DTB) without Derek. I am a HUGE Derek Trucks fan, but the rest of the band can more than hold their own with soul, blues and jazz. YSB will be in the area in Aug / Sept. Then the DTB singer, Mike Mattison plays in a rough bluesey accoustic duet called Scrapomatic. Absolutely brilliant!! Both groups tour while Derek is out with the Allman Bros. Both have websites.
One of my favorite bands, The Lost Dogs, is currently touring. They don't often make it to this part of the country (mostly playing in the midwest and the south) but it would be great to see them make a trip up this way. I think they would be a great fit for Tupelo'shttp://www.thelostdogs.com/main.html
Hi Scott - This is a clip from a band called Mingo Fishtrap that I just became aware of. I know nothing about them other than they come from Austin, have three CD's and they would be a good fit for Tupelo. Check out this clip from You Tube...http://youtube.com/watch?v=_y8r5cX9fCw&mode=related&search Thanks - Steve Cabral
Hi Scott, these artists would go over great at TupeloThe Tubes - http://www.thetubes.com/Terrell -http://www.hopefulsinner.com/Los Lobos - http://www.loslobos.org/site/Rock On
I'ld love to see the BoDeans. Don't think they're in the area often. Another Artist is Scott Kirby. He just released a live cd and is local, well here and Key West. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes would be great. I never miss a John Eddie show either. Thanks for a great place to see Great shows.Bill
I'd like to see Stephanie Corby and Tracy Grammer. I'd also like to see Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell return soon.
The Chris Duarte Group would rock! I'd give my eye-teeth to see him in a place with as nice a sound system as you guys have put together.Also, Victor Wooten would be way cool. See y'all at the Fools.
Hey Scott! How about Xavier Rudd?! Wicked good stuff. Thanks.
BRANDI CARLILE! 'nough said. :)
Would love to see John Sebastian perform at Tupelo. And Ray Chesna would be a great opener for this concert!
Antigone Rising gets my vote, Jewel, Toby Lightman, Kate Klim, Kate Voegele, Lori McKenna, would also be great. I think Kate Klim is coming soon right?
Gillian Welch & David Rawlings (or the Dave Rawlings Machine) would be glorious at Tupelo. Jimmy Lafave would also be a great Tupelo show.
In no particular order, here are artists I'd love to see at Tupelo:Levon Helm, Brandi Carlile, Jeffrey Foucault, Ari Hest, Harry Connick Jr, India.Arie, Jamie Cullum, John Butler Trio, Marc Broussard, Mavis Staples, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Martin Sexton, Vusi Mahlasela, and maybe some more jazz, reggae, world music.
STEVE FORBERT, LITTLE FEAT, LEO KOTTKE, MORE JAZZ (I DONT MEAN GEORGE WINSTON)... WAYNE SHORTER, CHICK COREA, KEITH JARRET, JOHN MCLAUGHLINI SAW JOAN OSBORNE LAST NIGHT.AMAZING SHOW
Scott Subdudes please
How about Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles? I'm told they played there before, but I missed them.Gillian Welch and Grace Potter were good suggestions. Other than that, I'd like to see more indie rock, blues or reggae.How about some of the reunited Boston bands, like Buffalo Tom, Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr or Mission of Burma?
Hey Scott,Ray Bonneville has a new album coming out. He's an unbelieveable performer and I've heard you play his music at your venue. Any chance for a future show?
Willie Nile puts out great CDs like 'Streets of New York' - but he is even better live.
There are some great bands that are really big in other parts of the country, but have a limited following in New England. All of these folks have web sites, if you want to check out some tunes.www.donnathebuffalo.comwww.simredmondband.comwww.themenage.comwww.johnnydowd.comOr if you want to stick to local folks, I would highly recommend...www.julianahatfield.comwww.thefiggs.comwww.buffalotom.com
Loudon Wainwright III, would be a great show
Loudon Wainwright III
Scott,Is there a chance you could get Keb Mo to come to Tupelo? He'll be at the Lowell Summer Music Festival on August 29, 2008. Maybe he would come the day before or the day after if he could be in the area a couple of days. He has nothing else on the schedule on his website for August yet.
I second that Keb' Mo' nomination. He's be absolutely PERFECT for the Tupelo venue.
Hey scott.......great show again by the Hothouse flowers......coming out to see Leon Russell and Bruce Cockburn....how about these suggestionsRobert Gordon, James McMurtry, Shelby Lynne, ALLISON MOORER (what a voice), Rodney Crowell,Brandi Carlilse....keep up the good work...p.s. love the wine cellar...Bob
Scott: Update on my message 3/25/08 about Keb Mo's schedule for 2008. Keb Mo's schedule is filling up fast for August. Following the Lowell Summer Series on August 29 he's now at the Rhythm & Roots Festival in Charlestown RI and on August 30 and LL Bean Summer Concert Series on August 31 in Freeport ME. If you could get him while he's in the area now it would probably have to be for Thursday August 28, 2008 We've seen him at the Capitol Center for the Performing Arts in Concord NH in the past and he's GREAT!
First off I want to thank you for booking Graham Parker. I saw him last year in Shirly, MA and it was a GREAT show. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great show to see.I just bought a CD by a young artist named Melody Gardot. She's currently in Europe but she would be great at Tupelo.I see people talking about Keb Mo'. I saw him at Berklee in Boston last year. Best show I've ever seen, other than Stevie Ray Vaughn in Lowell back in the 80's.
Glad to see there are others out there who love Keb'Mo'. Come on Scott, succumb to our peer pressure! :O)
Shawn Smith is a very talented musician. He sings with Brad, Satchel, and Pigeonhead but has his own solo career. Would LOVE to have him come to Tupelo, he is unbelieveable. Here are a few youtube links:SUFFERINGhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=db_DrsQJ6x4&feature=relatedThe Day Brings- Brad feat Shawn Smithhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=3g3raY1tYm420th Century- Brad feat Shawn Smithhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=nWdUukhHwug&feature=relatedThanks, James
Missed Shawn Smith's main website:http://www.shawnsmith.co.uk/BRAD:http://www.bradcorporation.com/
Indigo Girls are going to be in NH in July. It would be great to see them play at Tupelo.
I agree the Ingigo Girls would sound great at Tupelo. Normally their NH shows run about $30 a ticket, but I would definitely pay more to see them in such a small venue.
Please bring back The Alternate Routes! They're playing the Paradise in July, I'd LOVE to see them head a little further north to the best venue ever!
Andy Childs (of Sixwire fame) - he's playing @ UNH on 5/18 JJ Appleton - his site shows he'll be at Tupelo, but don't see it on your scheduleCowboy MouthMark Bryan (of Hootie & the Blowfish fame)
there are some misconceptions about reggae audiences out there.If you bring an act like Burning Spear or a veteran act like Freddie McGregor, that would be very cool
I think Tupelo would be the ideal venue for Justin Currie (ex Del Amitri) who is such an amazing songwriter that he would pack the house.
Burning SpearEek A MouseIsrael VibrationRavi ColtraneDave HollandChris PotterAimee Mann
Would love to see Jackie Green or Guy Clark. Tupelo is great, keep up the good work!!!!
Either of these would absolutely slay me... Tom Tom Club Mark Knopfler
I would love to see Welcome to Florida there. I saw them open for Rustic Overtones in Boston and they blew me away. I have been listening to their album non stop ever since. I have also pimped them out to many friends and everyone loves the music. They are still small so now would be the time to act.
Any chance of getting Squeeze back again for another show at Tupelo?
It's been awhile since there's been any string bands at the Tupelo - I think the last one was Old School Freight Train and that was a couple years ago - is there just no interest? I did enjoy Hot Day at the Zoo when they were featured at open mic night awhile back. They played a triple bill at Milly's in Manchester (in February, I think) with The Verbs and a band from Virginia, Special Ed and the Short Bus. Something along those lines would be fantastic! Two other possiibilities that come to mind are Hot Buttered Rum String Band, and the Mammals. Whaddya say? Doable?
Way back when the Tupelo was the Muse - the Grey Eye Glances played on several occassions- LOVED them and would LOVE to see them again!!!
Scott....just left the Shelby Lynne show....unbelievable....great stage presence (but petite), voice to die for and a wonderful band...how do you do it???...now try to get her sister Allison Moorer to come to New Hampshire....I will bring ten guest myself.......keep up the great work.....thanks....Bob
Oh yeah........Please bring Shelby Lynne back at some point.I had never been to the Tupelo yet....... and she got me out there.I love your venue. It is absolutely perfect. It allowed me the privilege of such an intimate performance.Great spot..... spotlessly clean....friendly folks....and so close to home........How lucky is that.I have every confidence that your new location will deliver plus!Kim/NHDo you ever record performances??If so, are they for firstname.lastname@example.org
Please consider Todd Rundgren at the Tupelo. I have seen him in both larger and smaller settings, and he is always an amazing performer. He is currently booking dates in October and December for his current tour. Please keep him in mind!And a BIG thank you for the James Montgomery Band Show. SPECTACULAR!
KAL DAVID would be an excellent choice and show stopper. His blues-style guitar phrasing, tone and attack succeeds in stopping the guitarist in you cold! His singing voice is rich, articulate and soulful.He'll be in Hartford, CT on Nov. 29, 2008 so maybe you could book him around that time for he will be in the "general" area! Just a wishful thought.Thank you for having Coco Montoya on the 10th! It was a great show and a fantastic place to showcase such talent!!!
Scott...how about Rodney Crowell....James McMurtry??? keep up the great work....Bob
I would love to see Leon Redbone come to Tupelo! He is an amazing singer, and he is in the area December 6. Or maybe Tom Waits.
There is a great band out of mass called The Installers, I saw them a couple of saturdays ago the really know how to give a high energy show.Blues, Rock They even made an album with J Geils There wasomewww.theinstallers.netis there website
Toad The Wet Sprocket is playing at Showcase in Foxboro in Feb 2009. The same venue that Squirrel Nut Zippers are playing. Any chance of getting them?
Dave Edmonds or maybe Marty StuartClark Davidson
Ok, here is my wish list-Martin Sexton- saw him last year he was amazing.Soulive- saw them- very worth whileMatt Nathanson http://www.mattnathanson.com/He's got some serious soul-Bob Reynoldshttp://www.bobreynoldsmusic.com/One of the best Sax players I've ever heardDavid Ryan Harris- Vocals and Guitarhttp://www.myspace.com/davidryanharrisBrett Dennen- Folk Rock/PopVery unique sound-Ray Lamontagne James TaylorI'll stop here for now :) Keep up the great work, can't wait to see George Winston
Kelly Sweet. I don't listen to pop vocalists as a rule (I love Jazz vocalists), but I heard this one by accident ('Raincoat') and couldn't wait to check out Amazon to find out more. Very 'Norah Jones' and 'Sarah MacLachlin'. I believe she would sell out in minutes! Surprising myself, I would be there! --Steve--
We'd love to see Jerry Jeff Walker or Sleepy LaBeef.
Scott...my latest find...Nicole Atkins...unreal...check out her video from the Letterman show (You tube)Saw her in Austin Texas....she will lift the roof off Tupelo....just played TT the Bears in Boston....get her.....Bob
esay to see why you're the best venue to see a show-definitely hooked! love to see you get-and for serious blues lovers SEE-tommy castro or michael burks, who are both spectacular! the ultimate small venue performer-and probably the most elusive-would be tom waits...name your price on that one!! can't wait to see johnny winter tonight, snowstorm or not!...
Dana Fuchs would be a great Concert at the Hall.
I wonder how Albanach, the Scottish pipe and drummers would sound at Tupelo.I have heard them play at the Highland games and they are usually quite entertaining and powerful.
now that I've become a regular-and i wish i knew about your place sooner-i've brought many of my friends and we've left almost stunned after some of the performances...al dimeola? mind-blowing! sonny landreth? jaw-dropping, to say the least...still want to re-inforce my thoughts for the possibilities of getting michael burks or tommy castro, either of which will tear the roof off the place! was it just a tease about stanley clarke coming? THAT would be crazy! best place to see a band ANYWHERE in NH or MA(or VT ot MINN or TEXAS...)
I want to see Shoe Suede Blues again!
I saw a band around thanksgiving called the installers. they were incredible. They played at the bull run in shirley,ma. It was completely packed,standing room only. There new album has j.geils on it too. Maybe you people should book them. I guarantee they would probably sell out.
Hi Folks: I'm right up the road in Manchester and would love to have you book singer-songwriterCraig Bickhardt. He's told me that he has tried to get booked there but no response. He lives outside of Philadelphia but has gotten singer songwriter awards in Nashville. He has played at the Bluebird many times there. I know he's coming up to Vermont in September. Can you try to book him around that time? His website is http://www.craigbickhardt.com/Craigs email contact is email@example.comGarry Haworth1972-1976 Music Director WUNH
Scott...love the music. Looking forward to Cohn again. From a comedy point of view, try Bob Marley. A 'Mainer' that is hilarious.
Please have Robbie Fulks and his band rock Tupelo. This guy is crazy good. Robbie's about to release a 50 song collection of recent work (www.robbiefulks.com) and his band totally kicks, well, you know. I just moved here from CA, have seen him a bunch of times, and now he's East Coast too. Versatile, funny, wide-ranging, dance till you drop band. Love 'em.
still hoping for michael burks and tommy castro-serious bluesmen with crazy good bands...how about leslie west?...spectacular elctric guitarist, but if you've never heard him play acoustic-whoa! peter green, original fleetwood mac axeman and a friggin'legend! hope about savoy brown? can't wait for kim wilson and charlie musselwhite! thanks for all the great shows, definitely hooked!!!!
Although I've been attending shows at Tupelo from its transition days, until now I have been unaware of this blog. Reading the older posts, came across:"The McLaughlins (#1 Fans of the Tupelo) said... Does anyone know if John Lincoln Wright is still around? George just pulled out and dusted off some of his stuff and we were just wondering...couldn't find anything online, so I am thinking not."John is indeed alive and well, living in Cambridge. Come by the Cantab some Monday or Tuesday night, ask Geoff or PJ or one of the regulars where he can be found.
We would love to see Lydia Warren at Tupelo. We heard an interview with her yesterday on the University of Lowell blues show on WUML and she was talking about sitting in with Buddy Guy. She is a local person but seems to be getting some good recognition.
Saw Lydia Warren a few years ago...she was very good......Bob
Marcia BallDeanna Bogart
My wish list:Lucinda WilliamsTom RussellDavid BrombergEric BurdonJessy Colin YoungRichard ThompsonTab BenoitI can't believe Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown are playing there and I won't be able to make it.
Brandi Carlile...just saw her last nite in small venue...would sound unbelievable at Tupelo's!
agreed....great voice and presence...hey, check out Nicole Atkins....WOW.....
Hey Scott,One other artist I was thinking about was Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. .She is a local artist from Vermont. Her style is similar to Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow. I saw her last summer as the warm-up band for the Black Crowes at the Hampton Casino Ballroom. She was fantastic! She had the place rocking and would be a great addition your shows!
Hi Scott,I haven't been to the Tupelo yet but I'm looking forward to a show soon. I may check out Charlie Musslewhite or Ronnie Earl. I'm bummed I missed Kim Wilson last night!!One guy I think you should definitely check out is Robben Ford, a great blues guitarist/singer from Cal. who has worked with some of the best performers around. He'll be doing a show in NY in August and it would be great if you could get him to come to Londonderry. Check out his website @ http://RobbenFord.com
Ed Kowalczyk, the singer for Live is touring solo.He's playing at Great Scott in Allston April 23. Henry Rollins will be in the area mid May, might be a little pricey but he is so worth it.Mark
Bonerama would be explosive in the hall; 4 saxes and a sousaphone laying down some great rock and funk.They're in the area (Mass and NY) at the end of June. Sure would be a great sound.Chas
Would it be a stretch for Susan Tedeschi to play Tupelo? I think she would be awesome. Patti Griffin?
I just saw Sara Watkins (of Nickel Creek) at Cafe 939 (Berklee) last night. She is touring to promote her new CD produced by John Paul Jones. What an AWESOME show. She'd sound great in Tupelo.
I just read that Satan and Adam are playing The Press Room on June 20. I saw them there in '93 or so and it is still one of the most memorable shows I've seen. There's a documentary about them coming out soon. If you're not familiar with them, read the story here. You can check out the trailer for the film there, also.
Jimmy Herring has a great new band touring this spring/summer.Would love see them at Tupelo'shttp://www.jimmyherring.net/
Amos Lee. (what a voice!)He's promoting a CD and is touring. Would LOVE to see him in person!http://www.amoslee.com/
Could you bring back Cowboy Junkies. They are touring on the east coast in June (6/17 to 6/21 they are in PA, VA and NY) and will be in Northampton MA on 6/23/09. Maybe you could get them sometime after 6/23 before they leave the area again.
I read the suggestion from someone on 4/14 to bring Susan Tedeschi to Tupelo.Name your price if you could get her, especially if you could bring her husband at the same time!
The Adam Ezra Group is starting to make a big splash in Boston - I remember Adam did an opening slot a while back for someone, and was good enough to get me to buy one of his CDs - but I saw the full band opening at the Paradise for Gaelic Storm last fall, and that blew me away! They're getting airplay on 92.5 the River, so I think you'd be able to get a good turnout for them.
I would love to see Jesse Winchester. He would be a perfect fit for Tupelo.Norma
I'll second Jesse Winchester! Howsabout The Tarbox Ramblers and Leon Redbone and Leo Kottke?
Dixieland Crackerjacks, a great small venue Dixie land band....Bass sax, banjo, drums, trombone and trumpet.
My wish list;Cormac McCarthy (the singer/songwriter not the author)Pat Metheny Seconds on;Jen ChapinTab BenoitReruns;Poco! Bruce CockburnPoco was a real treat! Thanks for having them in.Steve
I'd be impressed if Van Morrison, J.J. Cale or Jack Johnson booked gigs at The Tupelo, but then again tickets would be impossible to get!
I'd love to see you bring The Sweet Remains. Check them out! http://www.myspace.com/thesweetremains
How about Living Colour?Just kidding - saw that they are booked. Should be AWESOME!!
Robin Trower, The Jayhawks, Roseanne Cash, Kim Richey, The Outlaws, Little FeatBring back Graham Parker, The Radiators, Edgar Winter, Poco, Dave Mason and Aimee Mann
Amos Lee is amazing. And he's playing the CT Folk Festival in New Haven on Sept. 12th. Looks like you don't have a show booked for Sept. 13th.... HMMMM!
