Cold Chocolate at the New Revival Coffeehouse in Stow, MANew Revival Coffeehouse 353 Great Road, Stow, MA
Cold Chocolate is creating an exciting and unique new sound in the world of Americana. With original tunes and technical prowess, this four-piece band from Boston is rocking audiences with guitar, banjo, upright bass, percussion, and four-part harmony. "The band's approach is decidedly modern, with as much an influence from folk and swing as from hard driving bluegrass. Song topics also more reflect the urban environment in which they live than the country or rural themes that dominate so much bluegrass from southeastern artists." John Lawless, BluegrassToday.com. "There is little more I love in life than bluegrass music (Ok, maybe my wife, my cats, and my family and friends). Cold Chocolate plays a style of bluegrass that is so ridiculously good, that I guess I really love Cold Chocolate too. Singer and guitarist, Ethan Robbins has a depth and soul to his voice that blends certain aspects of soul and blues music into their traditionally instrumented sound, creating a unique quality that makes their music far more than a couple pickers playing Bill Monroe tunes. This is something special. High energy, excellent harmonies, and, of course, killer picking from the group makes Cold Chocolate an experience that you won't want to miss out on." Brian Carroll, Red Line Roots. Tickets $18 at the door, $15 in advance at BrownPaperTickets.com. Doors open at 7 p.m.
