Zac Brown Band

ZAC BROWN BAND will be bringing their JEKYLL + HYDE TOUR” to the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME on Sunday, June 7th as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series to support their forthcoming album ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ which will be out April 28, 2015, on Southern Ground/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records. The band will premiere new music from the album this weekend during their first performance on Saturday Night Live.
Describing the album’s direction, Zac told Rolling Stone earlier this year that it will have “things that people will expect and things that they won’t.” Digital pre-orders will include immediate downloads of “Homegrown”, “Dress Blues” and “Heavy Is the Head (feat. Chris Cornell)” at select partners. “Homegrown” — the band’s highest chart debut, which is bulleted at #10 on country radio this week — has earned massive fan support and early praise for its “rock feel” (Country Weekly) and “intricately arranged vocal harmonies” (Billboard); “Dress Blues”, written by Jason Isbell, is a somber and stirring tribute to members of the military who have been killed in service; and “Heavy Is the Head”, which features Chris Cornell, the multi GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter and legendary frontman for pioneering rock bands Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog, makes its world premiere this Friday, March 6th, on iHeartRadio’s Mainstream and Active Rock station. The album also features a collaboration with Sara Bareilles.
‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ physical copies are available for pre-order now at:
‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ follows Zac Brown Band’s three platinum-selling albums, ‘Uncaged’, ‘You Get What You Give’, and ‘The Foundation’, and their 2013 project ‘The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1′, which have together sold over seven million copies, produced a historic series of eleven #1 hit singles and earned three GRAMMYs.
During release week, the band kicks off their North American stadium tour in Nashville, and throughout the summer returns for headlining shows at Fenway Park, Wrigley Field and Citi Field, in addition to several new baseball stadiums, and festivals including Hangout Music Festival and Summerfest.

TURN UP THAT DIAL… From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, comes a hot new Broadway musical that bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, MEMPHIS is about a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break. Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves — filled with laughter, soaring emotion and roof-raising rock ‘n’ roll.
Winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical, MEMPHIS played pre-Broadway at the La Jolla Playhouse and Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre, and features a Tony-winning book by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) and a Tony-winning original score with music by Bon Jovi’s founding member David Bryan. MEMPHIS is directed by Tony nominee Christopher Ashley (Xanadu), and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming Ukulele players, using instruments bought with loose change, which believes that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the Ukulele.
A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock-n-roll and melodious light entertainment featuring only the “bonsai guitar” and a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies. There are no drums, pianos, backing tracks or banjos, no pitch shifters or electronic trickery. Only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette of orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling). Audiences have a good time with the Ukulele Orchestra. Going from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks, the Orchestra takes us on “a world tour with only hand luggage” and gives the listener “One Plucking Thing After Another”.
Using instruments small and large, in high and low registers, whether playing intricate melodies, simple tunes, or complex chords, and sitting in chamber group format dressed in formal evening wear, the Orchestra uses the limitations of the instrument to create a musical freedom as it reveals unsuspected musical insights. Both the beauty and vacuity of popular and highbrow music are highlighted, the pompous and the trivial, the moving and the amusing. Sometimes a foolish song can touch an audience more than high art; sometimes music which takes itself too seriously is revealed to be hilarious. You may never think about music in the same way once you’ve been exposed to the Ukes’ depraved musicology.

Grammy winner and 7 time Grammy nominee Paula Cole has released six solo albums spanning an eighteen year career. She has sold approximately three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton (and many more.) Cole’s emotionally deep and thrilling performances are a trademark. Poetic and fiercely touching, intelligent writing makes Cole stand apart. Her compositions have been covered by Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, Katherine McPhee to name a few. Learn more about Paula at
