We recently saw Ellis Paul and were thrilled with the 2 talented guys he was playing with. Wish we didn't have to sit thru an opening act. We travel too far to be seeing the main event start at 9:15. We will be seeing the Nields at the end of the month and once again wish we didn't have to listen to an opening act.

I just saw Jason Shain for the third time and think Tupelo would be a perfect venue for him. He's a young singer-songwriter (DUH?!) from NY and has that Dylan/Springsteen thing going on. Check out his website www.jasonshain.com and listen for yourself!

I write award-winning rhymes, and my free “fictional rhyming dictionary” can help songwriters.

If you just want a rhyme, go to a conventional rhyming dictionary. It has thousands and thousands of words. My dictionary only has only about fifteen hundred.

But if you want to master rhyming – to have rhymes at your command while composing, then, from time to time, you might try skimming over my “fictional rhyming dictionary.” It arranges rhymes to tell (or suggest) stories. In other words, it uses word association to implant rhymes (consciously or otherwise) in the mind.

Don’t expect poetry or marvels of narrative from the dictionary. The string of rhymes is always a ridiculous pretext for sticking sounds together. But the ridiculous can be easier to remember than the sensible.

To get there, click www.benandverse.com, then “Phony Pearls of Fictitious Wisdom,” and the “Fictional Rhyming Dictionary.”

With best wishes to those rhyming in song,

John McCall

PS I have nothing to sell on my website or otherwise. I just like to pass ideas along. I hope you will pass this letter on to others. (It’s OK for children.)

The Gin Blossoms would be GREAT! Why the hard time making the decision?

I have an opportunity to book the GIN BLOSSOMS. Is this of interest to anyone? Please respond if it is. I am having a hard time deciding whether to do the show or not.

Deanna - The reason I'm having a hard time deciding on the Gin Blossoms show is that the date is on a Monday ( July 3rd). Most people are away during this time, and it's not an inexpensive booking.

How about the Bottle Rockets?
They are touring small places now in support of their new album Zoysia, I saw them at the Capitol Center for the Arts a few years back opening for Lucinda Williams. These guys are great!
Or maybe you can get Steve Earle and the Dukes?

We always say the same thing when we leave a Tupelo Hall Show: "Can you believe that something this great exists so close to us in NH???" Well, last night Scott really outdid himself by booking Thomas Dolby. There could be no cooler show. We're still shaking our heads in amazement. Both the virtuosity he demonstrated and the passion with which Thomas shared the process of his music with the crowd was unsurpassed. Truly a class act and a phenomenal entertainer.

Sure would love to see Delbert McClinton also The Malford Milligan Band. Malfords from Austin Texas founded the band "Storyville" which had SRVs "Double Trouble" in it. He's played with James Cotton....Dr. John and many more!!!

Just performed at Tupelo Music Hall for the first time last week and, I must say, that this has quickly become one of my favorite listening rooms in the region.
It's got a warm, comfortable feeling, the sound is excellent, and the staff make performer and audience alike feel right at home.
As far as having a memorable, intimate musical experience, whether you're an artist or a listener, this is a high quality place.
I'd highly recommend it.

Congrats to all who've made it so - twas a pleasure.

Would absolutely love to have John Stewart and Buffy come to the Tupelo....they sometimes come to the Boston area and are just the greatest in the field of folk music. Think on it real hard...please.

Well Hi:
I am Dana Tremblay who lives up on High Range Road just up a piece from we knew then as the Grey Goose, The Muse. Back several decades ago I recall that area as being pretty much open land around the Old Homestead. Well times is changed now I suspect and now it's becoming cheap strip malls. Oh Well, no matter anyways. But it was indeed a pleasure to shake the hand old of John Mayall, Leon Redbone and Roger McGuinn in person if I do say so. Just in my own back yard

We saw Alternate Routes, Virginia Coalition and Rex Moreau(sp?)all together in one night (last night) and were blown away by all. The music and musicians were magical. The energy, the connection and the love flowed through the room! Thanks to all musicians for the fine music and song and thanks, Scott for another great evening at Tupelo! -Sue and Dusty Smith

Really just had to take a minute to thank you all for Open Mike Night. We came to our first Open Mike July 3rd '08. It was actually our first date. It was such a great night. The Artists were incredible and soulful, the crowd was so respectful and appreciative,
the atmosphere of Tupelo's was, (and is), intimate and comfortable.
We haven't missed a single Open Mike since. Nor do we plan on missing any in the future. We look foward to it each month. And everytime we go its as magical as that first night.

If you have never been to an Open Mike, you don't know what you're missing!

Thank You All Again,
Joey and Rox

Kelly Sweet. I just posted on 'Artist I would like to see'. I just heard 'Raincoat' with Dave Koz, and it was awesome. This young jazz influenced vocalist (from Cape Cod originally, father is jazz pianist)is incredible! Similar voice to Norah Jones and Sarah MacLachlen (sp?). No doubt in my mind that she will very soon be impossible to get into a small venue. 'Book her, Danno' while you can (if you can!). I'm heading out right now to get her 2007 release 'We Are One' at Barnes and Noble. I don't remember the last time I have ever acted so impetuously. What a voice! --Steve--

Is there any chance you could get Jeff Beck? Jeff Beck's website has his USA tour posted for the month of April. His tour starts with his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He doesn't have many slots open. He will be at Foxwoods on April 11 and House of Blues in Boston on April 13 that only leaves Easter Sunday on April 12 that he will be in the area and then he's on to Cleveland.

Hey Scott,
There are a large number of (we call ourselves) Poconuts, covering the great Northeast (Maine to Virginia), who'd love to see and hear Poco at The Tupelo Music Hall. Why not contact their management (Rick Alter) to work out a deal, you will not be disappointed. Poco have original members, incredible musicianship, spot on vocals and an awesome catalog, that they bring to the table 'night after night'. Thanks! MsUp

Scott -

Thanks for getting all the great acts! LOVED the Joan Osbourne show. Can't wait for the Bromberg Quintet in August. I would love to see Richard Thompson play the Tupelo...

Also, have a schedule conflict and can't make it to the Earl Klugh show. I have 2 tix in the 2nd row if anyone wants them.

Many thanks! Keep the music coming!

I think you should bring Dave Carroll and his band Sons of Maxwell. He's the guy who wrote the song "United Breaks Guitars" and made a zillion hits on YouTube. I love political music! I saw Tom Paxton right after 9/11 and heard his songs about the tragedy, and Liv Taylor's songs about the elections, and now we need some Dave Carroll.

Is there any chance of getting the legendary guitarist Robben Ford. He is playing with his new band in November. He would be a great addition to the Tupelo. He is playing in Connecticut in November. Check out his website www.robbenford.com and see if you can persuade him to come to NH. He will not disappoint!!

Thanks and keep up the great work. Going to see Pete Wolf on the 25th!! Looking forward to it....and there's no place better to see him.

Hi, the Blog is great! One suggestion would be to reverse the order of the postings so the newest ones are on top. Just a thought : )
By the way I was in Londonderry for Don McLean on Saturday (1st show), had a great time and we really like the room improvements! Hope to see Don McLean return sometime too.
Thanks, Mike

If you missed the Yardbirds you missed the ultimate Tupelo Telecaster. This post is going to be mainly for guitar players I would think. Ben King, lead guitarist for the Yardbirds used a vintage Tele with almost no pedals-I went up and checked out his rigg after the concert. I love my Les Paul and I use a Strat too but have come to think of a Telecaster as a country western git. Man was I wrong. Ben's tone was right on, gritty,bluesy,basically wonderful. then I remembered seeing the Yardbirds in 68 and Page was useing a Tele at that time with a Duel Showman. Ben's amps were a Black face Princeton and Vox AC30 and a half stack Marshall(couldn't tell the exact model). Anybody want to buy a nice Strat.

Just saw Martin Sexton, an incredible performer, singer/songwriter. What a great venue to hear live music. What is up w/ the 10 y.o. kid, Nico, who sang last night after Martin received a UTube of the boy singing and playing his song?? That kid is amazing! How can I see the UTube?
Can't find it... that kid's going to be famous someday. How generous of Marty to invite him up on stage, wowee!!!
