BOSTON, MA, July 28th 2015- The Hard Rock Cafe Boston's Cavern Club was packed with smiling faces and nervous giggles this past Sunday.
The featured ARTiST LIVE band “Trash Boat” composed of vocalist Juliann Khirallah, guitarist Michael Britt, bass player Emily Chronopoulos, drummer Wyatt Fromm, keyboardist Nicolas Fromm, and keyboardist/song writer Natalie Derderian set the show off with their debut performance. “Being at the Hard Rock Cafe with a band was nerve-racking but so exciting!” says the band members interjecting with excitement.
The performance of their EP consisted of four original songs which were composed and recorded during their two week summer music program at Needham Music and Dance. “The thing I liked the most about the two weeks was that we were able to break up into groups and do songwriting” explains lead vocalist Juliann Khirallah. The new program was led by Berklee graduate and multi instrumentalist Evan Langley.
Supporting acts included the very talented acts of When Pigs Fly, Lost & Found and Samme Blackman. Needham Music also teamed up with Laura Lemere of Pavoh.org to feature Pavoh artist Killian Pierce of Maine as the show's closer.
“I think the best part of the whole experience was being there at the Hard Rock Cafe and the feeling of everyone watching us” concludes Wyatt Fromm. Overall the first debut of ARTiST LIVE's event was a huge success and the crowd participation was amazing.

Under 21 Open Mic Added to Music Line-Up at Hearth Pizzeria in Needham
Hearth Pizzeria recently added a new series to their Thursday live music line-up of local band showcases and adult open mikes. The new addition, Boston Youth Music Series, provides an outlet for young musicians under the age of twenty-one to perform. BYMS is hosted by Jass Bianchi of Color in Sound and sponsored by local businesses such as Needham Music and Dance, and Plugged In.
When asked about the reason for the creation of the series, Bianchi stated “I look back on when I was a kid and I remember there being a severe shortage of creative outlets in the
town I grew up in. This series creates a fun and safe environment where kids can feel free to express themselves.”
Owner Ivan Pullecio of Hearth Pizzeria is very excited about the new series, which is one of multiple music events that will be featured at his restaurant this year. “I am honored to provide these young musicians with a place where they can be themselves and show off their talent. We love being a part of our music community!” says Ivan Pullecio, owner of Hearth Pizzeria.
Musicians hailing from all levels, all genres and all styles of music are encouraged to sign up by visiting
Boston Men’s Chorus Sings in London and They Want You!
September 15, 2017
London, UK October 15th 2016- Just after celebrating their 25th year as a performing chorus, BSMC is gearing up to perform in the London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs, and they want you to sing with them!
The celebration is held at the legendary Royal Albert Hall. During this festival, over seven hun- dred male choristers from all over the world join together in song and celebration. For BSMC founding member Steven Foote, this was one of the most memorable experiences of his life. “The hall itself is a unique facility. Imagine a big cylinder with a half of a ball on top of it. The fa- cility is so high that the Royal Air Force parachute team had two people jump from the top and land at the bottom of the floor” says Foote.
BSMC is one of the largest, most accomplished and well-traveled men’s choruses in the Greater Boston area. The chorus has performed in many world renowned venues including Carnegie Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, as well as Faneuil Hall and Fenway Park. The chorus has also performed with men’s choruses from Canada, Australia, Ireland, Hong Kong, South America, UK, and other international locales. BSMC has shared the stage locally with the City Singers, Harvard Glee Club, Cornell Glee Club, the Yale Whiffenpoofs, the University of Virginia Glee Club, the Boston City Singers, and many others.
“At the end of the day, we’re just a bunch of good-hearted guys who love to sing with a capital L” says Jeff Garland.
Currently the chorus is recruiting new members for their London performance. Male voice singers are encouraged to inquire or drop in for a rehearsal. The group meets most Monday nights from 7:00 to 9:30pm at the First Parish Church in Weston, Massachusetts.
