Charm City Exiles at Widow Browns 08-30-2014

Charm City Exiles at Widow Brown's

Charm City Exiles at Widow Brown’s

What’s better than rockin’ tunes?  How about adding good food and drink! Now that’s really rockin’!

Mark the date Saturday, August 30th, 2014, and bring yourself and a few pals to everyone’s favorite restaurant and bar, Widow Brown’s Cafe in Danbury. (It’s just over the Brookfield-Danbury border!)

Charm City Exiles will be performing their straight-up rock with a twist of Americana.  It’s some country here, some punk there, something plaid over there – and a few surf tunes just to have a little retro-cool going.

Lisa plays a custom 12 string guitar built especially for her. It was made by guitar elves 3,000 miles away, and it sounds like nothing else. Sean alternates between his fave Fender American Jazz and his home built double-neck guitar-bass.  He gave the double-neck racing stripes.  It rocks.

Music starts at 10pm and goes until 1am.

You can follow the band on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/CharmCityExiles.

Mad Hackers Conference 6-7-2014

The Charm City Exiles are doing it again at 1pm on June 7th at the band shell on the Danbury Green.  They’ll be making the makers rock out at this 2nd annual Mad Hackers Conference.  It’ll be a day of innovation, technology, social media … and ROCK!

Sean will have his double-neck bass-and-guitar thing-a-majig, and hang around the hackerspace booths to answer questions about it.  He built it in part at the Connecticut HackerspaceLisa will have her custom built 12-string.  She might even pull out her Gretch on a tune or two – you know, just to get that surf guitar vibe going.

The band goes on at 1PM and there will be other music before and after.  This is a family event, so bring the kids.  The band promises to keep it clean.

The conference and exhibits require tickets.  See http://www.madhackers.com for event details.  This is a great event and last year was a big success.  The conference last year was a dual event with the 2013 Danbury Mini Maker Faire.  This event is put on by the rockin’ folks at City Center Danbury and the Danbury Hackerspace.

Mantik’s main lineup included Scralet LeMay on vocals, Jimi K. Bones (KIX, Skin and Bones) on guitar, Yves Gerard (Patti Rothberg, Larry Mitchel) on drums.

Besides performing some of LeMay’s original songs they covered songs by Alice Cooper and Skeeter Davis.

Sean met LeMay through art and music events orchestrated by Aristedes DuVal.  Later, drummer Gerard would perform with Sean on a couple dates for Sean’s band, Sean and the Time Travelers, including the show at Arlene Grocery in Manhattan.
