John Gorka was amazing! We have been listening to him for years, but have never seen him live. We had no idea he was so funny! What a pleasure! Thanks, Scott ~ another great show!

Fruit was the most original surprising and entertaining group that I have seen and I have seen and heard a lot. The icing was that it was free!

I too thought that Fruit were excellent.....bought their CD and have enjoyed listening to all the songs on it. BTW, pictures I took of the Fruit Concert can be found on this page - www.tupelohall.com/YSHBTFRUIT.htm

Kate Klim Headlines on Friday, September 16!

Never heard of Kate? She opened for Ollabelle and sold all of the cd's she had that night. People come from Boston to the open mic nights and stay all night just to hear her play two songs. If you haven't heard Kate, you really don't want to miss this show.

Need another reason to go? Tupelo is donating the entire proceeds from the night to Kate so that she can start production of her new album. The show cost is $12.50. The entire $12.50 goes to Kate. This is how much we believe in her.

Who saw Norah Jones, Tori Amos, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and others when they started out at venues like Tupelo? Come see a great show on September 16 and support a true rising star!

WOW!! Just came from seeing Mark Erelli, Lori McKenna, and Jake Armerding ~ what a wonderful, fantastic, unexpected surprise! We decided last minute to attend and we could have stayed and listened all night. Another great show; thanks, Scott!

Hi Scott -David and I attended our first open mic night last night (August 25th). I was pleasantly surprise at the talent that was present. The night was nothing like I expected. I enjoyed the show a great deal hearing a variety of music types. One performer in particular I wanted to sing the praises of was the last one of the night. He blew me away. The words amazing do not cut it. Although I can't remember his name I do remember that he was from Michigan and now living in Haverhill MA. In my opinion if you were ever looking for an opening act for anyone he would be an A+++++ choice. I would even enjoy hearing a full night of his singing, he was that good. I look forward to attending more open mic nights in the future. thank you for the great place you have created and keep up the good work.

For anyone who missed Vance Gilbert last night, you may have missed one of the best shows this year! It should have been standing room only. Luckily he will be back on New Year's Eve; so it's not too late to see him!! Another great one Scott! : )

Well Scott, thanks for a FANTASTIC Labor Day weekend!! We attended all three shows and they were all WONDERFUL!! We already spoke about Vance. On Saturday John Eddie rocked the place for hours!!! He was awesome as usual! And Leon Redbone was just as unique and talented as we expected. I don't know how you are going to beat the past three days, but you can sure try! Keep up the good work and we'll keep bringing new people to the best music venue in NH!

The McLaughlins commented on a MIchigan-based, last-of-the-night performer who, I agree was quite remarkable. I believe we're talking about Keith Lewis who will be the feature on the October 27th Open Mic
Hope to see you there!

Hey Scott, We saw Mike Morris Saturday night at the Pasta Loft in E. Hampsted. He was accompanied by a woman on the fiddle by the name of Heather Michaels. They were awesome.You should consider them for headliners for their own show. An interesting observation made us appreciate the Tupelo so much more as we had to put up with all the "bar noise". It sure took away from the music.

Having Mike Morris headline, with Heather, is an excellent thought!

I've been to the open-mic quite a few times now(as both listener and player),and find the host to be generally excellent and witty; why on earth did he allow the upcoming 'act' for next Tuesday to pretty much take over the place last night for over 2 hours? Is Tupelo that hard up for attendance to its scheduled concerts that it must hold unsuspecting listeners hostage while the ar-TISTS do what amounts to an unabashed pre-performance sound check and self-promotion? There were a lot of people still waiting to go on during and after this fiasco, and although I was only there to listen with friends, it was painful to see the minutes and then hours ticking by as the night went later and later...no doubt, these kids are talented, but it wasn't right to let them run most of the show. Is this what we can expect from now prior to a 'big' out of town act?

First of all the Tupe is a business, it is not a charity organization designed to promote unsigned musical artist...if it does not make money then it does not stay in business and if it is not in business then there is no open Mic night period. I personally thought that Cinamatic was great....very talented...Tuesdays show should be great. They had every right to participate in the last nights open mic, thats what an open mic is all about - OPEN...how many feature acts do you think would do that? They were very respectful of all the other acts that played and I enjoyed having them there. I personally do not really like the pick your order out of a hat format, my feeling is that a first come first serve would be fairer to all buit that's just me...it's such a small price to pay for playing such a Great Room! Keep it up.

For those who missed it, the Gordon Lightfoot tribute was a brilliant show! Aengus Finnan, Jory Nash, and Terry Tufts formed a Canadian Folk Supergroup. All incredibly talented, diverse, and very engaging. They each sang their own original to go along with many Lightfoot classics. It's not every show you see the performers getting hugs from complete strangers...it was just that good.

Ed Carrey? Ed Carey??? I'm seeing upcoming shows for this person (open mic night and as an opener) with their name spelled 2 different ways, and I'm wondering if you actually mean "Edie Carey"?

I heard Morwenna Lasko & Jay Pun are coming to Tupelo, I found their CD on Cdbaby.com and was blown away... I was wondering why they're only doing an open mic night?... is that the only you guys could get them?... how long will they play for?

Well, I wouldn't say that they were "only" playing an open mic. Our open mic features artists that we believe in and, with any luck and a good tailwind, may "make it" in this really difficult industry filled with wonderful talent. The competition is fierce, to say the least. Open Mic features and Openers for headliners are taken very seriously at Tupelo. Robert Haigh, who does a tremendous job running the open mic series and booking openers puts much time and effort into each of these slots.

I am glad you liked their CD. Please come support them at the open mic.

Hi There,

I just wanted to drop a note and say a huge Thank You for bringing the English Beat in. My friends and I had the best time last night, it was our first time to your venue and we could not have enjoyed it more. Big thanks to the band for putting on such a great show and to you, we haven't been a place where you can dance on the chairs in a long time! It was well worth the drive up from Boston. Keep them on your future booking list.

I'd like to see Mike Rivera. I saw him open up for the Bacon Brothers and he was great...is he local? I know he was solo acoustic that night but does he play with a full band at all?

It's rare to see an artist who instantly arrests your attention and grabs the moment for pure passion in music as...Grace Potter!! Her and her band The Nocturnals are up and coming, but you can listen to her CD ("Nothing But the Water") on-line...(http://www.indie911.com/grace-potter)
She blew away the Lowell Summer Music Series audience in August! Gospel, bluesy, and very talented!

Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams caught my ear when listening to public radio, so when they played a festival in my area I had to check them out. I was mesmerized and instantly hooked by the passionate songwriting, musicianship and genuine kindness of this band. Their current double disc (which I purchased that show) – Flapjacks From the Sky – is just one fantastic tune after another, not one to skip! I’ve been spinning it since June and it just doesn’t get old. They are a very hard working band that constantly travels the country (in Utah and Co. this weekend) spreading lots of joy. Their musical style can not be fit into any keyhole, rock/folk/dreamy/funky/fun/etc…., but strangely familiar. Acknowledged by the band that their music has a lot of influences from the great music of their generation, and stolen bits and pieces that are positively identifiable, yet like nothing you’ve heard before. www.slambovia.com can introduce you, but live is best, in my opinion. Go and enjoy! They also love to talk to anyone that wants to!

Went to the Johnny Winter show last night and had a great time. My only complaint is and I have been to a number of shows at Tupelo is that you need to invest in AC that can keep that room cool when filled with 200 people. I know you are investing in a new sound system and acoustics but the room is worse than a sauna. This is not good for the artist as well as the audience. I heard multiple complaints saying that it was WAY TO HOT!!! You need to at least cycle the air by turning on your ceiling fans. If you don't find a way of cooling off that room during the summer I am afraid you will loose customers as well as artists coming back. Other than the AC complaint Tupelo's is AWESOME!!!!!

The Mayall show was wonderful. Being front row did not hurt either. John & his band were so down to earth it was amazing. Yulele (the drummer) even picked up on my wife talking about the bass player and his appearance of being asleep, while playing a very good bass!

What was the name of the "kid" playing guitar on the stage with Whittington? This kis has huge potential.

Thanks to Scott and his staff for the Jeffrey Gaines show. Last night's concert was incredible! Incredible talent, brilliant individual performer. The fact that you could purchase a CD of the show made it that much better. Please have him back sometime in the future. Those who weren't there missed out big time.

Just saw Luka Bloom at Tupelo on their 4th year aniversary. What a show! It was the perfect place to see feel and hear Luka Bloom's special charm and emotional music. His songs will reach deep into you if you let them. His guitar playing is fantastic. It is hard to believe he makes such music by himself on one guitar. I also caught him at the ICONS Festival Sunday afternoon and he was fantastic, but the intimate setting of Tupelo was missing. I cant wait for Sept 24th and the Gaelic Storm!
