Upcoming Music Highlights
Silence Presents: Joe Bass wsg Anthony Damiao
December 14, 7:30 PM – 11:00 PM
Modern folk tales, rootsy genre-bending anthems, and just a dash of small-town nostalgia, Joe Bass offers an adventurous spin on alternative-folk music. Based out of Toronto and Waterloo, the trio combines mandolin, guitar, bass banjo, and a lonesome kick-drum with thoughtfully arranged harmonies, forging a sound that’s surprisingly rich for an instrumentation that’s stripped-down. Their lighthearted stage show and tight-knitted musicianship make their performances equal parts unhinged dance party, camaraderie-inducing group hug, and elaborate listening experience. Fresh off of their first tour to Canada’s east-coast, the 3-piece is currently getting set to release its sophomore EP.
Joe Bass is:
Eric Marcotte – Mandolin, vocals
Garrett Stratford – Acoustic guitar, lead vocals
Sandy James – Bass Banjo, Kickdrum/tambourine, vocals
Unfortunately, Doris Folkens has had to cancel her appearance. Instead, Anthony Damiao will be opening for Joe Bass.
