Crooked Coast was formed in the summer of 2012 by Cape Cod natives Luke Vose, John McNamara, Ben Elder and Charles Walton. They distilled their hometown’s celebratory summers and harsh winters into the album “Thanks for the Memories” with infectious hooks, sweaty dance floor rhythms, big guitars and word play both gut wrenching and wry.
After a decade-long run on the Northeast music scene during which they became recognized as one of the best and most popular unsigned acts in the country, John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown finally broke through nationally with leader John Cafferty’s score to the motion picture, “Eddie & The Cruisers”. The soundtrack was awarded a triple platinum certification by the RIAA and led to their own recording contract with Columbia Records. Their second album, “Tough All Over”, was a best seller and gained them an international audience. After forty years, John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band is an on-going and in-demand attraction and is unquestionably one of the greatest and most successful acts in Rhode Island music history.
Formed in 1991, the band has evolved through many incarnations, three Tone Cool and two self-produced CDs, trips around the world as far as South Africa and mostly the joys of playing a lot of music on Martha's Vineyard where most of them live. The band started out as a four-piece with no piano, became a five-piece for several years, and then returned to a four-piece configuration, this time with no bass, and it's been that way for over 10 years.
