The Mike Aiken Band
WHEN: Saturday, September 28, at 7PM
WHERE: RVCC, 118 Lamington Rd., Branchburg
Well-traveled Virginia songwriter and sea captain, Mike Aiken, may have been born in the wrong century. An inner sense of chivalry oozes from every story he tells and every song he sings. Aiken has drawn tales—and hope—from "trail riders, aging rodeo champs, sea captains, Rastafarians and outlaws" to craft a treasure chest of tunes that draws the threads of these independent spirits together. Always having fun on stage, you can expect to hear upbeat, rootsy grooves, from slide guitar to honky-tonk piano, percussion and sweet harmony vocals that take you to the heart of a summer jump-up.
On stage with Mike Aiken will be his trusted band of wayward troubadours - Amy Aiken (vocals, percussion), Jordan Ponzi (vocals, upright bass), Ron Fetner (vocals, guitars), and Cara Lauzon (vocals, fiddle).
Open mic winners will open the show!
Kim Parent (L) and Carolyn Messina (R) were our winners and will be joining us to open for the Mike Aiken Band, at Tall Tales & Troubadours, Saturday, September 28 at 7PM. Congratulations Kim and Carolyn!
