Stage 33 Live is pleased to have Decatur Creek in the house on Sunday, May 12 with an opening set from Nick Badaracco. It’s Mother’s Day, bring your mom!
The band started in 2012 when Steve Dionne, Doug Farrell, and Jack Henry — each of them individually accomplished musicians — got together and heard something special happening. The 2016 addition of Beth Eldridge (of The Bradford Bog People and The Hardtacks) took things to yet another level.
With influences ranging from traditional roots and Americana to straight-up country, folk, and blues, their diverse but complementary styles, backgrounds, and skills fuel the group’s evolving original acoustic sound — always with a strong focus on songwriting and vocals.
Their 2015 self-titled full-length debut featured original tunes from across the band, and was well received. They raised the bar even higher for their second release, aptly named “Rising”, which just came out at the end of 2018. Heartfelt and incisive songs served up with warm vocals and tight harmonies over unique arrangements and crisp musicianship, smothered in soul, energy, and wit.
We’ll open the doors at 5:00 and the music will start at 6:00. All entry donations go to the band, we suggest a minimum of $5 — more if you can. And buy your mom a CD!
Stage 33 Live invites the public to listening events that are recorded and filmed for radio, TV, and the internet. It’s a volunteer run nonprofit on a mission to help local and regional talented and knowledgeable people reach wider audiences on multiple platforms. The stage is also open to established performers and presenters, because their participation helps bring attention to others still getting their foot in the door. We aren’t a bar, club, restaurant, or venue with regular hours. We’re also not a plush theater or a state-of-the-art facility. We’re just good folks doing this fine thing — the homegrown love child of Tiny Desk Concerts, Ted Talks, Science Friday, Midnight Special, and The Little Rascals. Stage 33 Live allows only original material.
33 Bridge Street is a couple blocks toward the river from the intersection of Flat Iron Exchange coffeehouse and Popolo restaurant, which is the only intersection in downtown Bellows Falls. And it’s a T so there’s no way to take a wrong turn. We’re in a brick building on the right on a small rise after the post office and over the little bridge. The most reliable parking is in the free lot on the left — across the street from us, next to the canal.
