Entrain and the Gathering
November 16, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$25
The River Club Music Hall 78 Border St.,Scituate,Ma. is proud to bring to its stage Entrain along with The Gathering on Friday Nov.16 at 8 pm.
Epic in sound and kaleidoscopic in vision, the eclectic Martha’s Vineyard-based six piece Entrain has been thrilling critics and fans alike since its inception.
Formed by drummer Tom Major in 1993, Entrain is also lead singer/guitar wiz Brian Alex. Joining them is bassist M’Talewa, saxophonist/keys/percussionist Rob Loyot, saxophonist/percussionist Hilary Noble and Trombone/keys Lennie Peterson Veterans all, their collective resume includes stints with such diverse players as Bo Diddley, Carly Simon, Chuck Berry, Southside Johnny, James Mongomery, Flor De Cana, and Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
Entrain has recorded eight albums, available on Dolphin Safe Records, all of which have been praised for their ability to shift effortlessly between musical styles – from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk – often within the same song.
“The whole Entrain concept is based around the drums and infectious rhythms. Once we’ve got that…. anything goes, everything goes,” explains Major.
“The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums!”
Since its inception, Entrain has jammed with the likes of singer/songwriter James Taylor, Grateful Dead alum Bob Weir and rock legend Bo Diddley, and amateur saxophonist and professional leader of the Free World Bill Clinton. Entrain continues to perform as a hugely popular live act throughout the northeast and mid-Atlantic, and in 1995 the band garnered a Boston Music Award for Best Live Show. Before their appearance on the “Cutaway” soundtrack, Entrain’s music was used as the theme song for MTV’s Real World Hawaii. Their t-shirts, bumper stickers and posters have been featured on the popular WB series “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.” Entrain has also starred in and performed a memorable TV commercial for one of the nations leading furniture retailers, which aired during the 1999 Super Bowl.
Entrain’s goal is not just to be the biggest and the best, says Major. “We want to create music that makes people feel good. When we look out from the stage, all we see is smiling faces of all ages and bodies moving. You can’t beat that feeling. At the same time if we can help to promote positive values and lifestyles… great! There’s enough negativity in the world, let’s spread a little joy around and watch how infectious it can be.”
The Gathering is an 8 piece dance band featuring the River Club Music Hall’s own Steve Chase, his wife Mamasteph,two sons Matt & Sam Chase and a heavy duty line up of pro players including Lennie Peterson, Lance Vanlenten, Bobby Gallegoes and Tim Paul Weiner.
