Dan Montgomery with special guest Gus Cordovox

December 28, 2017, 8:00pm - December 28, 2017, 10:00pm

Way back when I put out my first album (Man From Out of Stae) Gus Cordovox played accordion and percussion and we did a lot of shows together considering we lived a thousand miles apart. They were always fun no matter how dour the material back thern. Thurs Dec 28th,I'll be playing at Rustic Music in Philly for their first ever show. I'll do a solo set and hope to premire a batch of new songs and pretty much anything anybody wants to hear. It seems a golden opportunity to play my holiday "Classic" I Hate New Years Eve ! A second set will feature me and Gus on a handfull of songs and stories. It's been over a decade since we've done this, so don't miss it !!

An Evening With The Ben Vaughn Quintet (Record Release) at B&S

December 30, 2017, 7:30pm - December 30, 2017, 10:00pm

Analog Record Release Party THE BEN VAUGHN QUINTET Ben Vaughn grew up in the Philadelphia area on the New Jersey side of the river. At age 6 his uncle gave him a Duane Eddy record and forever changed his life. In 1983 he formed the Ben Vaughn Combo. The band was together five years, releasing two albums and touring the US several times. They received rave reviews in Rolling Stone and People magazine and video airplay on MTV. The attention inspired Marshall Crenshaw to record Ben's "I'm Sorry (But So Is Brenda Lee)" for his "Downtown" album. Ben embarked on a solo career from '88-'94 recording four critically acclaimed albums, touring extensively in Europe and US and receiving more MTV exposure. During that period he produced three records for the Elektra Records American Explorer series (Memphis rockabilly legend Charlie Feathers, Fort Worth gospel saxophonist Vernard Johnson, Muscle Shoals country soul singer Arthur Alexander) and recorded "Cubist Blues", a collaboration with Alan Vega (Suicide) and Alex Chilton (Big Star). He also scored two films ("Favorite Mopar" and "Wild Girl's Go-Go Rama") as well as producing segments for nationally syndicated radio show "World Cafe." In 1995, Ben moved to L.A. and released "Instrumental Stylings", an album of instrumentals in a variety of styles. A guest appearance on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic" led directly to being hired as composer for the award-winning TV sitcom "3rd Rock From The Sun." "That 70s Show" soon followed and for the next ten years Ben would provide award-winning music for a dozen other TV shows and pilots ("Men Behaving Badly", "Normal, Ohio", "Grounded For Life"). He also provided scores for several films ("Psycho Beach Party", "The Independent", "Scorpion Spring") and continued producing records (Ween, Los Straitjackets, "Swingers" soundtrack CD). Somehow, Ben found time to create the legendary "Rambler '65". Recorded entirely in his car, this much-publicized album (and subsequent short film) is still considered by many to be a classic document of a man and his dream. Ben's latest endeavor came about in a very organic fashion. Despite the lure of Hollywood, each weekend Ben would leave the studio lot behind and travel to his Mojave Desert home. Driving late at night, he would tune in Palm Springs easy listening radio station KWXY and let the music run through him. Soon the arrangements of Percy Faith, Paul Mauriat and Henry Mancini became a natural part of his blood stream. Over time it became obvious to him what his next recording project had to be: a modern instrumental album combining the magic of those late night broadcasts with everything he had learned through the years as a TV composer, record producer and recording artist. Thus, "Designs In Music" was born. The album, a vibrant snapshot of instrumental music's past, present and future, was completed in December 2005 and was released on May 16th on Soundstage 15 Records. . VENUE INFORMATION: Boot & Saddle 1131 S. Broad Street Philadelphia, PA, 19147 www.bootandsaddlephilly.com
