Rumblefish Unplugged

February 11, 2017, 7:30pm


Rumblefish is a minimalist trio based out of New Hampshire with a big sound breathing new life into familiar songs with imagination, innovation, and epic jams. Simple Gifts presents them unplugged for the incredible experience of really hearing the band without distraction. This concert is presented as a benefit for the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter - all ticket proceeds will go to this special organization.

Every song is a portrait of the people that create it. Experience 3 life-long songsmiths bound together by the passion for musical exploration. They blend innovative instrumentation and a dynamically diverse palette to create rich sonic textures and engaging soundscapes that celebrate and re-envision the classics. Rhythm & Blues, Reggae, Funk and good ol' rock & roll. We make good music. We're nothing like today's music. Gary Lopez: Guitar, vocals; Rick Carr: Percussion, vocals; Neal Demazure: Bass, vocals & moves.

Rumblefish was founded in 2013 by Gary Lopez, former vocalist/guitarist for the Baker Street Band. Gary has been performing professionally since he was 16 years old. GLo has shared the stage with such music icons as Greg Allman of the Allman Brothers, Johnny A, and The English Beat. Gary's styling of music we all know and love is top notch - covering songs from The Who, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Radiohead, J. J. Cale, and many more. This is a rare opportunity to hear this band 'do its thing'.

In true altruistic fashion Rumblefish will donate all ticket proceeds to the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter. Each ticket allows for a range of donations from $10 - 25.

You can also donate directly to the Soup Kitchen.
