PALO!

PALO! was nominated for a 2015 Grammy and a 2014 Latin Grammy for their album “PALO! Live”. They perform their own brand of music they call “Afro-Cuban Funk”. Just think “funky, jazzed-up salsa”, or better yet, listen to some of their music. The group’s unique, danceable sound blends the allure of Cuban music with funky beats and jazzy improvisation.

Jonny Lang Concert in Derry, NH

At The Stockbridge Theatre, 5 Pinkerton St, Derry, NH

Sixteen years ago, at the age of 16, guitarist and vocalist Jonny Lang found incredible success with the release of his major label debut Lie To Me. Fame hasn’t gone to his head. Lang is still the same country farm boy from Fargo, North Dakota who got his start in local Minneapolis clubs. He survived the passage of youth to adulthood, fell in love, began a family, and in the process he has also survived the life lessons we all endure.
