41 Bridge Street welcomes back Wise Old Moon on Saturday, May 27th at 8 pm! SixFoxWhiskey to open.
Before recording two full-length albums under the name Wise Old Moon, songwriter Connor Zane Millican left home at a young age to travel the plains, deserts, oceans and mountains of the expansive American West. Upon his arrival to New England, Millican set out to form a band that would pay homage to the long-standing tradition of folk and Americana music while breathing new life into the genre with a high-octane live energy and a unique brand of songwriting inspired by his experiences on the road. Three years and hundreds of performances later, Wise Old Moon is comprised of a cast of musicians from around the Northeast including Ian Meadows (The Meadows Brothers) on electric guitar, who offers up a gritty twang that has become a staple of the Wise Old Moon sound. Drummer and percussionist Stephen Cusano (Broca’s Area) brings with him his own influences, including modern hip-hop and soul, conveying colorful rhythms while contributing a huge sound and energy for their live performances. The band also takes advantage of its proximity to the Hartt School of Music in their hometown of Hartford, working with musicians like Greg Lake, who is currently Wise Old Moon‘s touring bass player. Wise Old Moon has been featured on WPNR’s Where We Live with John Dankosky and has been nominated for numerous CT Music Awards as well as a New England Music Award for Roots Act of the Year in 2016. The band has self-released two full length studio albums and has performed at some of the most well-known venues in and clubs in the Northeast.
Opening the show is SixFoxWhiskey, an up and coming rock band out of Boston, MA. With a unique blend of folk and jam rock, they put on an energetic, improvisational show layered with catchy melodies. The band released their debut EP, “For Those Who Need Little,” on all major outlets in November of 2016.
