Upcoming Calendar

October 21, Steve Z


Steve Z

We asked Steve Z to provide us with short blurb and this is what he sent us:

On Saturday Night, October 21, The Living Room Coffee House is pleased required to announce our Featured Performer will be Steve Z. For 30 years Mr. Z has been irritating Southern New Hampshire audiences with his interminable litany of sad songs. Blessed with a powerful voice that spans four octaves, of which he sings adequately in approximately one, Steve will blubber incoherently about one emotional calamity or another until clearer heads prevail and we chase him from the stage. So abandon all hope and join us for what is sure to be a memorable evening, (if you’re the kind of person who remembers root canals and tax audits.)

November 18th, Fran LaMalva

fran-lamalva-e1501030964225.jpgFran LaMalva has been around for a while in these parts and has delighted every single crowd he’s performed for. His polished and intricate guitar styles and arresting vocals capture each song exquisitely, whether it’s one of his own compositions or a compelling cover.  A very heartwarming experience!  Not only does Fran play at the top-shelf level, but he builds his own guitars.  His luthier business is located at http://lizardeye.com/ and he hails from Hollis, NH.

December 9th,  2nd week in December!!!

Thchaz-and-erik-1e Wicked Good Old Boys
Chaz Beauleiu on Flute and percussion, and Eric Blackmer on Guitar and Voice are a duo that call them selves “The Wicked Good Old Boys”. If you were at the November 20th Coffee house you were treated to a sample of the sweat melodies these two fine musicians conjure up. The Boys dusted off some great old tunes from the 14th century. Classical is always new when laid down with soul and talent. Their musical well is deep, so there will be a variety of tunes.

February 17th, Jon Pond

Jon is one of the members of the Milford area band, Spare Souls.
I’m sure he will tell us more about his project.
Jon Pond black and wtWith his firm and strong vocals and a range that emphasizes the breadth of his emotion packed compositions the listener is drawn into the sharing of the story that is unfolding on the stage. Listen and you will drink in the genuine heart felt tales woven before your eyes. I’m not exaggerating when he performed at our coffee house last season We were amazed and blown away by his stage presents.  It is part of our mission and our enjoyment to invite young, singer songwriters to pour it out on our stage. Jon is among the best.

 April 21st, Tom Smith
Tom Smith blk
Tom Smith’s songs are in turns humorous, touching, thought provoking, and inspiring. Deeply rooted in the old-school folk tradition, his timeless stories are told with a voice that is honest and sincere with melodies that you will remember forever. In the words of noted singer/songwriter Barbara Kessler, “Tom Smith will make you laugh and cry (maybe even in the same song) – a very captivating songwriter and performer.” Tom grew up in rural Pennsylvania in a family where music was part of the fabric of everyday life. As a young man living at the epicenter of the folk-quake that was Cambridge, MA in the 1960’s, Tom solidified what has become a life-long love of self-made music. Now a folk veteran of over thirty-five years, Tom performs at festivals, coffeehouses, schools, and concerts throughout the Northeastern United States to audiences large and small, young and old. Tom’s monthly folk music blog, “The Kitchen Musician” can be viewed at TomSmithMusic.com.
