LACONIA — The eclectic Martha's Vineyard-based six-piece Entrain will perform at Pitman's Freight Room on Friday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m.
Formed by drummer Tom Major in 1993, Entrain also includes lead singer/guitarist Brian Alex, bassist M'Talewa, saxophonist/keyboardist/percussionist Rob Loyot, saxophonist/percussionist Hilary Noble and Trombone/keyboardist Lennie Peterson. Veterans all, their collective resume includes stints with such diverse players as Bo Diddley, Carly Simon, Chuck Berry, Southside Johnny, James Mongomery, Flor De Cana, and Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
Entrain has been praised for their ability to shift effortlessly between musical styles — from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk — often within the same song.
Admission is $20 in advance and $25 at the door. The doors open at 7 p.m. Pitman's is a BYO venue at 94 New Salem St. in Laconia. For reservations, call 603-527-0043.
