Jeremy Wallace Blues Trio at Pitman’s on Friday

LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in downtown Laconia is pleased to announce that the the Jeremy Wallace Blues Trio perform Friday October 3 at 8 p.m.

Admission $15 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.

Jeremy Wallace is a blues/rock singer/songwriter from New Jersey. He has performed at various venues on the East Coast, and has opened for artists such as Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond, and Freddy Johnston. Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song "Samson and Delilah" on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey.
Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he's been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon
song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes (Tom Costagliola) and stand-up bass (Matt Gruenberg).

Catered dinner available before the show. Call 527-0043 for details and reservations.
