JOHN BUTCHER WITH SPECIAL GUEST ALLEN ESTES
Please help us welcome 2-time Grammy nominee and iconic Boston music legend JON BUTCHER (of The Jon Butcher Axis and Jon Butcher 360°) along with his very special guest ALLEN ESTES as they make their Jasper Hill debut on Saturday night, August 17th! Jon and Allen will play 2 sets starting just after 8PM, and local singer/songwriter JIM WEEKS and MIKE KELLY of The Jim Weeks Band will also make their Jasper Hill debut to close the evening’s program.
Grammy-nominated guitarist Jon Butcher (and founder of THE JON BUTCHER AXIS) is one of a select handful of influential recording artists who emerged from the legendary ’80s Boston music scene. MTV videos, hit songs, and incendiary live performances comprise the underpinnings of a rich music career that continues today. Jon Butchers’ signature sound features his powerful soul-infused vocals; and his guitar work reflects a skillful mix of Rock and R&B, Funk and Soul, Jazz and Americana, all of it focused through a prism built from the Blues. Jon’s media company ELECTRIC FACTORY X continues to provide film score, soundtrack and music licensing for television and film including SHAMELESS (Showtime Network) The Simpsons (FOX), Six Feet Under (HBO), The Sopranos (HBO), Deadwood (HBO), United States of Tara (Showtime), Ugly Betty (ABC), My Name Is Earl (NBC), The Life and Times of Buffalo Bill (A+E) and many more.
