If you wanted to submit and just ran out of time this weekend, please submit now!

You can submit by emailing images of the artwork (preferably in PDF or JPG format) to exhibits@artsatthearmory.org.  (Original format will be requested subsequently for all pieces selected

Dylan Jack Quartet (Fri eve) / David Champagne & Mark Chenevert Song Salon (Sun aft) ~ This weekend at Third Life Studio!

Dylan Jack Quartet

       Friday July 14, 8pm
       $10 at the door (cash only)
       FB Event


​​
Todd Brunel - Woodwinds
Eric Hofbauer - Guitar
Anthony Leva- Bass
Dylan Jack - Drums/Compositions

Although there are four musicians in the ensemble, The Dylan Jack Quartet has been described as one instrument with the musicality and connection between each member being eerily exciting to watch and listen to. Focusing on original compositions, DJQ blends the freedom of improvisation with the precision of composition creating a sense of unpredictability with their disjunct song forms, melodies, and rhythms. Founded in 2016, DJQ has been consistently performing in and around Boston and recently recorded their first record “Diagrams” to be released this summer.

David Champagne, guitar, vocals, songs
Mark Chenevert, clarinet

David Champagne (Antidote, Agnostic Gospel, Treat Her Right, Shane Champagne Band) and Mark Chenevert (Willie Alexander, Hypnotic Clambake, Limbo Race), both active in Boston’s music scene since the 1970s, will perform together.

Prolific in multiple genres--rock, roots, country, “agnostic gospel”--Champagne’s songs are described variously as “nitty-gritty but not always pretty” and “beautiful.” The stories they tell will be further burnished by Chenevert’s melodies.
