Josh Maiocco and Ezra Veitch at Stage 33 Live in Bellows Falls
BELLOWS FALLS — Josh Maiocco will play the Stage 33 Live listening room at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont, on Sunday, July 17 at 7:00 PM. Ezra Veitch will open and side. Limited seating. The event will be recorded and filmed.
In 2018, Josh Maiocco showed up at a Stage 33 Live open mic and stunned everyone there with outstanding songs performed brilliantly. Since then he’s played the room as an opener and a side-person; this is his first headline on the 33 Bridge Street stage.
Josh is as talented of a writer and player as he is under-recognized. It’s possible he likes it that way — below the radar and enigmatic. It’s known that in younger days he played quite a bit in New Jersey and New York City. He has a lingering MySpace page that was clearly forgotten about long ago. He’s not from around here originally, but since arriving about two decades ago he’s played in highly regarded and stylistically diverse bands like Ingrid’s Ruse, Ninja Monkey, 84 Sheepdog, and the Ben Carr Music Project, in addition to occasional solo shows.
Josh has enlisted his friend and frequent co-conspirator, Ezra Veitch, to open and side for him. Ezra is well known for his music and his tireless support of the local music scene, as well as his graphic art.
This performance will be on Sunday, July 17, 7:00 PM, at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Seating is limited to 40. $5 suggested donation; advance donations though stage33live.com double as chair reservations. The event will be recorded and filmed.
According to the performer’s preference, the COVID-19 protocol will be the guidelines in effect in the community on show day. Currently the guidance is that masks are optional, although that may change without notice. Respect those who choose to mask, and give them six feet of social distance. Seating will be a minimum of eight feet from the stage and set up in pods of two. If you wish to make a custom pod for your party, arrive early to do so. People who have already arrived and have arranged their seating will not be expected to move, and their perimeter should be honored.
Stage 33 Live is a casual and intimate industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performances and presentations of original material. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; coffee / soda / juice / water and weird snacks available by donation.

Stage 33 Live gratefully acknowledges the help of so many individuals without whom none of this would be happening, and institutional support this season from The Island Corporation, the Vermont Arts Council, Ben & Jerry’s Foundation, Covered Bridge Cookies, the Bellows Falls Opera House, and the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project that helped fund improvements and maintenance, and generally smooth out a lot of the rough edges. Stage 33 Live is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are deductible to the fullest extent. Volunteers run the thing from stem to stern.
