Finestkind Country Band
September 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12 – $15
(9/11 – Country/Blues/Honky-tonk) Finestkind Country Band is made up of fine musicians dedicated to enhancing your experience of traditional country music and its kissin’ cousins, blues and honky-tonk.
Jeff Merrow is a Nashville alum, having sought his fortune there before returning to Maine. He is a true natural, has played in several rock and blues bands and has a dynamic solo act. We put out the country bait, he bit, and we reeled him in. He is a creative, tasteful, addition to Finestkind.
Mark Gunter (keyboards) is a local, much sought-after player who is dedicated to music of many genres. He graces the stage with other bands but to us he is made for country. His licks, riffs, runs, and fills are original and will have you believing you’re in the Lone Star state.
Ron Breton (drums) will make you smile. Ron is an experienced drummer and does not overpower the subtle sound that country music can call for. Upbeat, country blues seem to be his specialty as he anchors the Finestkind Band.
Christopher Bailey (bass) is an experienced player for several area bands, filling out the sound with the full undercurrent that defines the bass role.
Janet Wentworth (vocals) has been singing country songs since she was a young girl. She has won several singing awards from many of the country music associations throughout New England. Janet has her own unique sound but has been influenced by Connie Smith, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Patsy Cline. Her love of traditional country songs drives the repertoire of Finestkind.
Tickets are $12.00 in advance (at brownpapertickets) and $15.00 at the door.
