Narrows Center in Fall River releases February Schedule



FALL RIVER— The Narrows Center has released their schedule of events during the month of February.

Doors open at 7pm and shows start at 8pm, unless otherwise noted.

Fri, Feb 1. Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish | Professor Louie & The Crowmatix. A classic doubleheader! Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish formed in 1991 and has evolved through many incarnations. The band started out as a four-piece with no piano, became a five-piece for several years, and then returned to a four-piece configuration, this time with no bass, and it’s been that way for over 10 years. Professor Louie & The Crowmatix began as the studio backing band for Aaron “Professor Louie’s” musical productions for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, The Band. This Grammy-Nominated Woodstock, NY group plays 150 shows a year in the US and worldwide. $25 Advance. $27 Day of Show.

Thurs, Feb 7. Zoink Zulag and The Galactic Shag. The Galactic Shag are a rogue band of troubadour aliens from universes outside of our own who have attempted to assimilate with Earth culture by combining their unfamiliar alien themes with our familiar, Earthly music stylings. When Earthlings have been asked what they think The Galactic Shag sounds like they always reply, “It’s as if David Bowie and Frank Zappa had an alien love child, but Bruno Mars had to raise it coincidentally off of the music of The Talking Heads and various 80’s hair metal.” $17 Advance. $19 Day of Show

Fri, Feb 8. Neal & The Vipers. This Rhode Island-based band has been playing American Roots music encompassed by blues, rock & roll, rockabilly, and surf, entertaining their fans for over 30 years! You can feel the chemistry between all of them as they play original hit songs from their multiple CD’s as well as covering classic songs. The Vipers add their unique arrangement on these classic songs, always making them their own. $27 Advance. $30 Day of Show.

Sat, Feb 9. Ryan Montbleau (Solo). In 2005, Ryan Montbleau and his band headed into Applehead Recording in Saugerties, NY, to cut their debut album. With nothing more than ambition and a relentless work ethic to their names, they bootstrapped the whole thing, maxing out credit cards to fund it themselves and launch their careers from the ground up. $29 Advance. $32 Day of Show.

Sat, Feb 16. Bill Frisell Trio ft. Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen. Aztec Two-Step 2.0! Since Neal’s retirement earlier this year, Rex Fowler continues the Aztec Two-Step legacy by welcoming two talented veteran musicians into the band. Dodie Pettit is featured on acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards and vocals. On upright bass, blues harp, and vocals is Steven “Muddy” Roues Rex’s band banter and stage patter is still as warm, fun, and engaging as ever, with “Rex & Friends” performing Aztec Two-Step fan favorites and forgotten gems. $30 Advance. $35 Day of Show.

Wed, Feb 27. James McMurtry (Solo). James McMurtry spins stories with a poet’s pen and a painter’s precision. Proof: The acclaimed songwriter’s new Complicated Game. McMurtry’s first collection in six years spotlights a craftsman in absolute peak form as he turns from political toward personal. “The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships,” McMurtry says. “It’s also a little about the big old world versus the poor little farmer or fisherman. I never make a conscious decision about what to write about.” $27 Advance. $30 Day of Show.

Thurs, Feb 28. Bonerama. Hailed as “unlike anything you’ve ever heard before”. It’s the best way to describe this 20-year-old powerhouse touring band from New Orleans, LA. In addition to changing the way people think about the trombone, the sound of Bonerama has become an influence and contribution to the sound of New Orleans music today. This band has performed and recorded with countless national artists such as R.E.M., OK Go, Tom Morello, Wayne Kramer (MC5), Jill Sobule, and so many more. $27 Advance. $30 Day of Show.
