Concert: Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, Airport, and Eric Salt & The Electric City

Join us at Sanctuary with these extraordinary artists: Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, Airport, and Eric Salt & The Electric City!

Experience an evening filled with exceptional music from three extraordinary artists: Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, Airport, and Eric Salt & The Electric City!

Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, a soulful indie pop group from Boston. Led by singer-songwriter Magen Tracy’s powerhouse vocals, this band combines lush harmonies, introspective lyrics, and infectious melodies to create a sound that is both deeply personal and universally relatable. Being a veteran of the New England singer-songwriter circuit and a busy side-player in the Boston rock scene (Juliana Hatfield, Band of Their Own, Nate Leavitt Band, St. Helena), Tracy first brought her bittersweet ballads and audacious anthems center stage in 2015 with a solo EP, Fiercely, produced by Nate Leavitt. Since then the band has become a staple of the Boston music scene, featuring such in-demand Boston players as Stud Green (Humble Tripe), Tamora Gooding (Gene Dante & the Future Starlets, Axemunkee), Mike Oram (Abbie Barrett Band, Eric Salt & Electric City, Cujo, Andrea Gillis Band), and Sam Spencer (Sera Del Fuego, Milling Gowns). In 2019, they released their first full-length album, Long Fuse Burning, and received a nomination for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at the Boston Music Awards.

Formed in 2010, Airport features the dynamic and soulful vocals of singer-songwriter, Craig Small, accompanied by a talented group of musicians. Airport has become a beloved staple of the Boston music scene, known for their catchy hooks, driving rhythms, and captivating live performances. Comprised of five talented musicians with roots in the local music scene, including acts like Waltham, Will Dailey, and Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents, Airport brings a fresh sound that draws inspiration from classic 70s rock, K-tel compilations, and more. Their music is characterized by sweet harmonies, jangly guitars, and hooky rhythms, delivering a dynamic live performance that showcases their unique sound.

Eric Salt & The Electric City is a band led by the Boston-based songwriter, Eric Salt, who is recognized for his eclectic, jangly rock sound and well-crafted tunes. His career in the Boston rock scene dates back to the formation of the legendary Abbey Lounge music scene in 1997. Eric Salt & The Electric City has released three records, produced by the award-winning producer, Ed Valauskas, at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA. Eric’s debut LP, “The Hail Mary,” was met with high praise, and his sophomore album, “Please Say Yes,” earned him a place in the acclaimed 2016 Boston Rock & Roll Rumble, in which he was a semi-finalist. Eric Salt’s latest album, “In Leisure Car,” is a tribute to long road trips in your favorite car, featuring incredible rhythms by drummer/producer Dave Brophy. Eric is a member of Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents and has performed with many notable artists such as Ronnie Spector, Glen Hansard, and John Wesley Harding in venues both large and small, including Boston’s Symphony Hall and Fenway Park.

Concert: Soggy Po’ Boys

Soggy Po’ Boys

The Soggy Po Boys, native to New England, have quickly become an institution. They are spreading the good news of New Orleans music across the northeast and beyond, playing at concert halls and street corners; music festivals and burlesque festivals; bars and libraries; wherever the party requires. Part of the beauty of New Orleans music is that it’s celebrated and appreciated wherever it goes, from the street to the theater.

The Po Boys formed in 2012 to shake the walls of a local club on a Fat Tuesday but have honed their sound and become more than a Mardi Gras centerpiece. Exploring the vast musical traditions of New Orleans and expanding their repertoire to look beyond NOLA jazz, the band includes traditional Caribbean tunes (it’s been said that New Orleans is the northernmost city in the Caribbean), as well as Meters funk, soul, and brass band / street beat music.

          “…These guys have done their homework, worked it out on the bandstand and put in the hours in the studio. It all adds up to a party you can bring with you when you want to treat your friends to a real good time.” -Ben Schenck of New Orleans’ Panorama Jazz Band”.

There are a myriad of traditions that flow into New Orleans culture just as there are tributaries that feed the Mississippi, and the Po Boys are eager to explore what makes the music of New Orleans so damn special. You’ll hear the heavy influence of the New Orleans sound across the band and in the stories told by their original tunes. Despite the scope of its sound, the outfit is only seven people, and thrives on the interplay and group dynamics that bring this music to life.

The Soggy Po Boys are:

     Stuart Dias (vocals, guitar)

Eric Klaxton (clarinet/soprano saxophone)

Nick Mainella (tenor saxophone)

Josh Gagnon (trombone)

Mike Effenberger (piano)

Scott Kiefner (upright bass)

Brian Waterhouse (drums/percussion)

Tickets: $15 (Advance)  $20 (Door)

Doors open:  7 PM  Event: 8 PM

Concert: Bug Hunter and The Narcissist Cookbook

Bug Hunter is a critically acclaimed, nationally touring indie band with a deeply loyal cult following across the world. 3 albums, 2 successful kickstarters and 20 million streams on Spotify show just how far this band has come since Bug began playing open mics in the Seattle area in 2014.

Performing as both a solo act with a simple acoustic guitar or as a three-piece rock band, Bug Hunter has played in cities across the country – performing sold out shows from Seattle to Chicago and Nashville to Boston. Fans are struck by the lyrics, which oftentimes invoke deeply personal and emotional reactions — while still maintaining a vital sense of humor. One moment the crowd is belting the chorus, and the next they are silent and transfixed as the story hits home.

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Music from 7:00 pm until 9:30 pm. Meet-n-Greet until 10:30.

She has performed with both small and large bands in venues in Greater Boston including the Chick Singer Night at Johnny D’s and the Burren in Somerville, and The Mad Monkfish in Cambridge.

He has taken inspiration from guitarists such as John Schofield, Joe Pass, Brian May, and Larry Carlton. Paul is currently collaborating with a variety of talented musicians performing throughout Massachusetts.

Jon Golden
Jon had five years of piano and two of clarinet under his belt when, at age 13, he saw a rock drummer performing “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.” He bought a pair of drum sticks and never looked back. Progressive rock, jazz, world music — and especially originals — are what keeps his heart, and hands, keeping the beat.

Jim Medvedeff
Jim (aka Santiago) plays keyboard and provides lead and backup vocals. He also serves as the
 band’s musical director. Classically trained on piano and organ from childhood through college, his later
 influences include Latin music, Gulf Coast R&B, funk, rock, and jazz. Discography includes “Afinen” and
 other singles by Grupo Maria (DECA records, 1974–75) and “Gangsters” by the Chicago Gangsters (HEAT
records, 1979)

Al Garay
