IRA’S GRATEFUL HARP REVIVAL

 

Formed on a Friday night when Ira’s band cancelled last minute and a number of groovy killer musicians answered the bell to perform at Electric Haze in Worcester. The dudes brainstormed songs they knew before sound check and then went out to play with the following instructions...TAKE IT ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE! NO FEAR! The music was smokin, the jams were exploratory and ferocious, the fun was off the charts and everybody was dancin! And so it goes...

 

Think Grateful Dead mixed with Blues Traveler with a bit of Butterfield Blues Band and a tad of Janis Joplin thrown in with a smidge of the Staples Family and a dollop of Joe Cocker...mix that all together and voila! THE REVIVAL!  Ira’s Grateful Harp Revival seeks to do more than put on a show. It seeks to put on a downhome Grateful Dead Revival meeting with a festival atmosphere and they want it to be an event every time they play! They want you dancing, smiling, hugging and loving eachother and having a soul-filling, heart-brimming, feet-can’t-stop-moving experience!

 

The Revival performs at clubs far and near, here and there. The band offers the opportunity for other musicians to get up and jam with them during the first set and then a fire-filled second set of Pigpen-era Grateful Dead with long and, at times, soulful or firey jams with no set list...no net...taking the music as far as they can take it and then taking it one step further! Sharing in the joy of their family dancing and flowing the energy everywhere and to everyone in attendance.

MOTHERLESS CHILDREN - A Tribute to Eric Clapton

Sometime around 1977, Rolfe Anderson was bassman in Human Sexual Response (and earlier for Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers) which had a talent for getting press (no such thing as BAD press when you're trying to make a name) and opened at Boston’s Symphony Hall for Jimmy Cliff to a REALLY polarized audience. At the same time, John Hovorka (later of Turbines fame) was putting together a band called the 2X4S with an 'industrial rock' slant different from the common concept. John needed someone with recording experience to produce the sessions and Rolfe did the job meeting their drummer, Steve Donnally.

Hovorka went on to form the Turbines which made waves, and from time to time Anderson would run into Donnelly at musical events, eventually asking to jam sometime. Bullheadedly persistent, the jam question came up and Donnelly finally relented sometime around 1985 resulting in the Deck O' Squares band which played lots of local watering holes and produced the 'Odd Pop' CD.

Mike Rosati (guitar) and Bob Shea (keyboards) were working as engineers at a Boston area tech firm and in gabbing, discovered their mutual musical interests. Bob had played in numerous Metrowest bands and Mike in Connecticut combos. They joined the Blue Billy Elvis show band performing both country AND western!

Sometime around 2005 Anderson got a call from Donnelly who'd met up with Rosati and Shea interested in forming a blues rock unit and things clicked; Back Bay Blues was formed playing the Boston Metrowest area. The band concluded sometime in 2009.

A chance meeting between Donnelly and Shea in 2012 culminated in the reforming of the original band, but this time the plan was to cover Eric Clapton songs which is Motherless Children's mission.
