The Fringe

The Fringe are one of the genuine living treasures of the Boston jazz scene. Originally formed back in 1971 by tenor-saxophonist George Garzone, bassist Richard Appleman, and drummer Bob Gullotti as an outlet for their free jazz improvisations, The Fringe have entertained and enlightened Boston area jazz audiences for over 30 years. Bassist Appleman left the band in 1985 to become Chairman of the Bass Department at Berklee College and was replaced by veteran bassist John Lockwood.

The No Reply Band - A Celebration of Beatles Music

The incredible Beatles cover act "No Reply" returns to the Bull Run after raising the roof in a sold out performance last spring. "No Reply" goes beyond the average cover band by pushing the attention to musical and vocal detail to new limits. While not a look-a-like costume band, the goal of this act is to play Beatles songs from all eras precisely, but with a live energy and sound that perhaps the Beatles could have provided had they been able to perform with today's modern amplification (and not all those screaming young girls drowning them out!).

Graham Parker & The Figgs

Stereotyped early in his career as the quintessential angry young man, Graham Parker was one of the most successful singer/songwriters to emerge from England's pub rock scene of the early 70's. Drawing from Van Morrison and The Rolling Stones, Parker developed a sinewy fusion of driving rock & roll and confessional folk-rock, highlighted by his indignant passion, biting sarcasm, and bristling anger. At the outset of his career, his albums crackled with pub rock energy, snide witticisms, and gentle insights, earning him a devoted following of fans and critics.
