Bar & Restaurant: 5:00pm
21+ $5 ADV // $5 DOS
Forged in the dimly-lit, beer-soaked bowels of Burlington, VT’s basement scene, Doctor Rick was put here for one reason: to help you get your fix. Brennan Kensey (Bass, Vocals) and Zach Santarsiero (Drums, Vocals) consistently hold down an infectiously groovy rhythm section, casually sprinkling in improvised solos while constantly pushing the energy higher. Patrick Callahan (Rhythm Guitar, Lead Vocals) keeps listeners on track with catchy, super-relatable lyrics that will be stuck in your head days after a show, all while trading licks with the Big Bad Booty Daddy himself, (E)Rick Soszynski (Lead Guitar), who shreds through solos and melodies with effortless levity.
Starting out as UVM students in 2015, Doctor Rick has been honing their craft up in VT for 2 years now, playing frequently at places like Nectar’s and Higher Ground. These guys work hard to combine everyone’s favorite aspects of blues rock, funk, and bluegrass into a cocktail delivered with surgical precision, straight to the brain. Now operating on a stage near you, dishing out blistering dueling guitar riffs backed by bombastic drum fills and tone-perfect bass bombs, the Doctor has a fix for whatever ails you. Need your face melted? Come on down. Wanna dance yourself outta your shoes? Stop by. These guys are just what the Doctor ordered. No appointment necessary.
One Time Weekend
Once upon a time, in a mystical town on the Farmington River, four strapping young men plugged in, picked up their sticks, and ripped a jam so earth-shaking and tasty, the locals still talk about it to this day. All they needed was a name. One Time Weekend is an up-and-coming band from Connecticut. After forming their groove in Collinsville, CT, members Ben Sullivan, Ian D’Arcangelo, Adam Eytan, and Zac Mulcahy combined their talent to create a fresh youthful vibe influenced by artists both past and present. The group has written many original songs that feature their funky, jazzy, rock, soul, rap, and reggae tastes while adding complexity to the mix, creating their own unique sound, and breaking the mold of modern contemporary music. When their music starts to tickle your ears it’ll make you wanna boogie down and shake ya tail-feathers to the groove!
We are a five piece band playing mostly our own music. Our sound is a blend between rock and roll, bluegrass, funk and jam music. We love to have spacey sounds too. The Schroons give you the perfect blend of rock music mixed with chilled out psychedelia and fat grooves.
