Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan is back at The Acoustic for another evening of high octane boogaloo FUNK! Jesus on the Mainline will be starting the night off right as well! See you there!
If the fabled Dr. Funkenstein set out to make a two-headed, ivory tickling, guitar ripping, gut busting, crowd slaying monster and a catastrophic disaster in the lab went perfectly wrong, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan would be the byproduct. Beau has assembled dueling guitarists, Danny Mayer (Alan Evans’ Playonbrother, On The Spot Trio) and Justin Henricks (Groovestick), Bill Carbone on drums (Max Creek, Z3), as well as the lovely vocalist, Mary Corso, to craft a perfect brew of organ driven, hard-hittin’, boogaloo rooted power funk with a rock ’n’ roll spirit. This Northampton, MA based 5-piece funk machine is a happy accident that has come out of the lab with a mission and won’t be stopped anytime soon.
A fifteen piece rag-tag group of New York’s finest young musicians, Jesus On The Mainline has played to capacity crowds since their inception in late 2012. Led by GRAMMY-nominated musician Andrew Neesley, their music is reminiscent of The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, The Black Crowes, with a dash of Joe Cocker and Janis Joplin for good measure. Listen for their epic soul cover of Nirvana’s “Lithium” and the striking original songs of Andrew Neesley and Tim Emmerick.
