Zonder Kennedy & the Scoville Junkies @ The Orphic Gallery
Sep 20 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

logothumbYou are cordially invited to a live musical performance by Zonder Kennedy and the Scoville Junkies on Saturday, September 20th at 4 pm at Roxbury’s Orphic Gallery – where art and music collide. The band’s scorching blues/punk is very familiar to patrons of the Orphic Gallery having performed on the deck at the gallery’s grand opening in 2012 and two other notable appearances since then.

Zonder Kennedy and The Scoville Junkies have established a new bar for incendiary modern blues – music that echoes the genre’s deep past, but reverberates into the future with daring arrangement, high energy and a keen, lean ‘n’ dirty sound. The band is made up of Zonder Kennedy on guitar, Ari Huff on bass, and Bruce Martin of the Tom Tom Club on drums. On Saturday evening Zonder and bandmates will serve up a sizzling selection of original works and choice covers from artists such as Bob Dylan, Depeche Mode & Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and others.

Zonder has led an adventurous life ricocheting around the world playing guitar with the likes of John Campbell and Doyle Bramhill, Sr. But in his solo career Zonder has truly developed a singular, distinctive style combining locally sourced blues with artisanal rock in a scorching musical potage. Bruce Martin is a highly accomplished percussionist and multi-instrumentalist who has performed for the past twenty years with The Tom Tom Club and a host of other musical acts including Carly Simon, Dr. John, Cindy Lauper, Andy Summers, Cassandra Wilson, Christopher Walken, Pine Top Perkins, and Bull Moose Jackson.

On Saturday, September 20th, Zonder Kennedy and The Scoville Junkies will bring their edgy, hard-chiseled six-string attack back to The Orphic Gallery where they will begin at 4 pm and play until 8 pm. The performance is open to the public, all ages, dogs on leash.
