About Natick
map
Natick Massachusetts was established in 1650 and is a suburban industrial town located on the upper basin of the Charles and Concord Rivers. It is nestled beside the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 9 making it very convenient.

Form its earliest colonial days Natick was a prime target for development because it had good agricultural land as well as fish runs and water power. Natick also supported itself with some lumbering and grist and sawmills were established. Local lore claims that several loads of men from Natick journeyed out to the California gold rush in 1849 and returned with enough capital to start their independent businesses. With the first shoe sole maker in 1827 the shoe industry dominated the community by the early 19th century and shoes were shipped to the western and southern markets by 1830. By the 1880’s Natick was the third largest manufacturer of shoes in the country.

Today Natick has become an industrial Boston-oriented suburban community that includes intense strip mall development on Route 9.

Redbird featuring Kris Delmhorst, Jeffrey Foucault, Peter Mulvey

"A record made by people who sound like they genuinely enjoy playing together (which can't be said for many groups), and who've found strong common ground." – Minor 7th

The brainchild of folk singers Kris Delmhorst, Jeffrey Foucault, and Peter Mulvey, Redbird is a real-time, unstaged love letter to the body of American song.

Charlie Farren and Sarah Blacker

Charlie Farren has long been known for great songs, great singing, and for outstanding live solo acoustic performances. Alone onstage with acoustic guitar in hand, Charlie captures an audience with his unique delivery, insightful lyrics, memorable songs, soaring vocal, and subtle yet innovative guitar style. It wasn't always quite so subtle, as Charlie formed this original self-taught style with a history of successful, hard-crunching rock bands throughout the 1980s, including fronting the Joe Perry Project.

“Female Performer of the Year” in the New England Music Awards, Boston-based 2012 Boston Music Award nominee for Singer/Songwriter of the year, Sarah Blacker is also a current nominee for Songwriter of the Year, and Song of the Year for 2013's single, “Shiver,”  in the New England Music Awards.  Sarah was recently called “one of the brighter artists to grab our attention recently,” by No Depression magazine.  The Boston Herald called her, “Boston’s delightful folk nymph,” yet he also said of her, “Sarah Blacker makes some of the most interesting folk music in Boston — mostly by making folk the starting point and reaching out toward rock, Americana and prog.” She is a prolific singer/songwriter currently touring behind her 3rd album in just three years.

Violet Jam Presents: The Outlaws

 

For The Outlaws, it was always about the music. For 40 years, the Southern Rock legends celebrated triumphs, endured tragedies and survived legal nightmares to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Now The Outlaws return with new music, new focus and an uncompromising new mission: It’s about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony and the road. It’s about a group that respects its own legacy while refusing to be defined by its past. But most of all, it’s about pride.

 It’s About Pride is the new album from The Outlaws, a record 4 years in the making and perhaps 20 or more in the waiting.  Formed in Tampa in 1972, The Outlaws – known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies – became one of the first acts signed by Clive Davis (at the urging of Ronnie Van Zant) to his then-fledgling Arista Records. The band’s first three albums The Outlaws, Lady In Waiting and Hurry Sundown – featuring such rock radio favorites as “There Goes Another Love Song”, “Green Grass & High Tides”, “Knoxville Girl” and “Freeborn Man” – would become worldwide gold and platinum landmarks of the Southern Rock era. Known as ‘The Florida Guitar Army’ by their fans, The Outlaws earned a formidable reputation as an incendiary live act touring with friends The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Charlie Daniels Band as well as The Doobie Brothers, The Who, Eagles and The Rolling Stones. 

Doors and DJ 7p. Band 9p. Show is 21+. Show is mostly Standing Room Only. 

Dine at our restaurant, Pantry, and have drinks in our bar, Violet Thorn, before and after the show!

Tickets are $20.00 in advance and $25.00 at the door.

Wishbone Ash

"The most interesting two-guitar team since the days when Beck and Page graced The Yardbirds." - Melody Maker. Wishbone Ash is considered to be one of the major innovators of the harmony twin lead guitar format. This distinction was validated by Traffic Magazine quoting the group as having "Two of the Ten Most Important Guitarists in Rock History" and Rolling Stone’s award as "Top 20 Guitarists of All Time."

Wishbone Ash embarked on the nascent Progressive Rock scene in 1969, taking full advantage of a fertile musical environment where they produced a distinctive brand of melodic rock. Inspired equally by British folk traditions and American jazz and R&B, the group played to public and critical acclaim.

More than 40 years later, having pioneered the use of twin lead guitars, Wishbone Ash has gained worldwide recognition, based firmly on a regime of relentless touring. Their latest studio release, Blue Horizon, continues to solidify their reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with.

The band includes founding member Andy Powell, who handles lead vocals and trades licks with Finland’s guitar wizard Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, a 17-year veteran of the band and in-demand studio musician, keeps the bottom rocking with Joe Crabtree, one of th best of Britain’s new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson.

Career Direction Workshop For Teens

As A Teenager It Is Never Too Soon To Be Considering Your Career Direction

 

This does not mean that you need to have “all figured out” by the time you finish high school - hey a lot of adults don’t have this! However, you will be well ahead of the curve when you learn how powerful it can be to have absolute clarity about your "Career Direction”.

 

Who do you listen to for advice? 

 

Your parents? Maybe they can help you, but are they really up to date with the latest career and college trends? And even if they are, can they really offer clear and objective advice that you can trust and follow? 

 

Your friends? Well they may have some strong opinions, but they have very little life experience. Your teachers? The truth is most teachers have very little "real world" experience. 

 

Guidance Counselors? They are probably the ones with the most up to date knowledge, but can they provide you with the essential individualized feedback that will make all of the difference? Probably not.

 

A full 56% of college graduates are unable to find full time employment that requires a degree. If you are a teenager today, this is a sobering thought. A generation ago, all you needed was a college degree and you had your pick of jobs upon graduation. How things have changed in the last 20 years. Today, you need to really stand out to stand a chance…..
