| October 21, 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, LaFran Malva
Fran 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.

The 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.
