Screwtape
Screwtape, a senior devil from hell, has delegated some authority to a junior fiend, Wormwood, whose assignment is to seize the soul of a very human and lovable young man. What ensues is a devilish dramatic contest with high-level meaning thrashed out in terms of brilliant low-level comedy. The rather charming Wormwood is being critically supervised in this, his first case, by that extraordinary devil, Screwtape. Advice from this old hand from hell is devastatingly perceptive of human foibles and, despite the love of a wonderful young girl, our young man is in terrible danger. It's really a close decision and, in a dazzling resolution, we all learn something important about hell, heaven, religion and humanity

The Fab Faux Perform The Beatles Live on U.S. TV ...plus a set of mixed favorites!
Go back in time and witness the most iconic Beatles television performances, LIVE. The Fab Faux brings together the talents of five of New York's most respected musicians: Will Lee of Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Vivino, band leader of theConan Show, Rich Pagano, who has performed with Rosanne Cash and Roger Waters, Jack Petruzzelli, who currently records and tours with Patti Smith and Frank Agnello, whose musical credits include Marshall Crenshaw and Joey Molland of Badfinger. Best-selling Rock Critic and Sirius Radio Host Dave Marsh, said: The Fab Faux have the hardest job in the history of R & R and they pull it off damn well. All rock bands want to be like the Beatles; these guys have the nerve to BE the Beatles. Amazingly, they're so good at it you learn new things about the originals. ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE named the band as #18 on a list of the 40 reasons to get excited about music. Rolling Stone also praised: sometimes a tribute band sounds better than the original. In a live concert review, THE WASHINGTON POSTs John Kelly blogged that the band had tackled the task of reverse engineering the Beatles' late catalogue, obsessively learning every guitar figure, every drum fill, every lush harmony, every tap of the cowbell and shake of the tambourine, until the songs could be played in concert. THE HUFFINGTON POST raved: They do the one thing, no amount of officially sanctioned Beatles merchandise can do bring The Beatles music back to life.

The Mavericks
Raul Malo, GRAMMY winner and the son of Cuban immigrants, and his musical comrades believe in bringing people together often in the name of good times and great music which is the most universal language of all. From their earliest shows as a garage band playing the punk clubs on Miami Beach, The Mavericks have had a skill for getting people to groove. Drawing on a mix of classic country, cow-punk and standards, Malo and company left South Florida, bringing their rhythmic fervor and Latin machismo, along with Malos lush baritone, to the world. In 2013, after numerous years as a band, multiple Gold and Platinum albums, world tours, breakups and reformations, The Mavericks recorded their critically-acclaimed album IN TIME and re-introduced music lovers to the bands genre-defying melting pot of pop music. In 2015, it was followed by MONO which hit #5 on U.S. Country charts and contributed to their win as Best Duo or Group of the Year in 2015s Americana Music Association Honors & Awards.

Grand Funk Railroad at Indian Ranch!
Celebrating 70 years, Indian Ranch in Webster, MA announced that Grand Funk Railroad will be performing live in concert on Sunday, August 7th at 2:00 P.M. Tickets are on-sale now! Known as The American Band," the high-energy five-piece group will play forty shows all over the USA this year. Grand Funk Railroad includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals and drums, writer and singer of the multi-million selling hit, Were An American Band) and bassist Mel Schacher, The God Of Thunder." Grand Funk laid the groundwork for such bands as Foreigner, Journey, Van Halen and Bon Jovi with its signature hard driving sound, soulful vocals, muscular instrumentation and forceful pop melodies. The fact that Grand Funks legacy still reigns over the Classic Rock landscape over 45 years after its 1969 birth in Flint, Michigan is a testament to the groups influence and staying power. Mega-hits Were An American Band, Im Your Captain/Closer To Home, Locomotion, and Some Kind Of Wonderful still receive continuous airplay on Classic Rock radio. Joining Don and Mel are true All Stars." Singer Max Carl is a rock veteran from 38 Special.
