Pitmans Hosting Bruce Marshall Group Friday Night

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in downtown Laconia is pleased to announce that the Bruce Marshall Group will be performing Friday, May 9 at 8 p.m.

The Bruce Marshall Group live show treats their fans to a soaring ride as they rip through a catalog of original material that truly sets this band apart. They love to mix it up, whether it's pulling off exciting jams that build with dynamics and layering, or playing the concise arrangements of their songs with discipline and taste. The sound defies categorization, slipping seamlessly around touches of Blues, R&B, Rock and Southern Boogie.

The interplay between Bruce and longtime guitarist Dave Cournoyer is the heart and soul of their performances. The songs are mostly upbeat, but even those dealing with love lost and missed opportunities, carry an underlying sense of hope and optimism. The band features original music by Bruce plus a high energy mix of Allman Brothers Southern Rock, Blues, Soul and Funk. Bruce is a member of The Toy Caldwell Band (Marshall Tucker) and has performed with Dire Straits, BB King, James Montgomery, Kate Taylor, Susan Tedeschi and more. Bruce Marshall on lead guitar and vocals, Dave Cournoyer on guitar and vocals, Pete Premo on drums and Andrew Renault on bass.

Admission $12, doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a catered dinner buffet ($10). Call 527-0043 or 494-3334 for dinner details and reservations. Pitman's is a BYOB venue. www.pitmansfreightroom.com
