Darlingside [Saturday, November 23, 2013]
All we can say at the moment is that this band is impressive and HIGHLY recommended by other musicians. We are proud to have them grace our place and bring their gorgeous sound to our listening community. This is a non-percussion, strings and vocal incident to raise your vibration.
Mike and I were able to check them our recently and have come to the conclusion that the UNIVERSE LOVES US! How else to describe how these amazing acts keep coming to our house...?
Darlingside has a brand new CD - so bring some cash and let it flow~

Rusty Belle [Saturday October 26, 2013]
That's what we're talkin' about! There is no one way to define the music coming out of the hearts and minds of today's artists - and Rusty Belle may be one of the MOST unique bands around today. At least those who would come and play in our Big Room.
Please stop in and enjoy the company of good folks, good food and the humble brilliance of this trio.
This is a CD-release show, so bring some extra dough! read more ...

Heather Maloney [Saturday, April 20, 2013]
Signed by Signature Sounds record label, Heather has launched her 3rd CD.
Another hardworking, incredibly talented singer-songwriter that issues lyrics with a life all their own, that dive right through your heart and soul, lovingly sprinkled with poppish/jazzy/cafe-style acoustic music. She'll lift your spirits, make you laugh and leave you in awe of the wonderment of our human condition and the heights to which we can soar.
This is a CD-release house party that you're sure to love. read more ...
Sarah Blacker [Saturday, March 30, 2013]
We love having Sarah and Sheeeeesh play The Big Room.
Sarah is opening for Rusted Root on March 14 and in January, Sarah opened for Paula Cole at the famous Bull Run in Shirley MA. “One of the reasons that Blacker was a nominee for a Boston Music Award this year is for songs like “Pluggin’ Away;” a new track that should be released on CD in 2013 and is bound to quickly become another in the growing number of fan favorites” - Manchester Examiner read more ...
Black Marmot [Saturday January 26, 2013]
Back (finally) is Black Marmot as a full acoustic band and ripping vocals by Linde Clark.
Black Marmot released its debut album “Run Home” in January of 2010 and played The Big Room in April of 2011. Since then the band has been delivering infectious folk rock tunes to crowds throughout New England. 2012 welcomes Black Marmot’s latest album, “The Everyday Seeker” EP. The record finds the band experimenting with ukulele, complicated harmonies, and even the addition of the rare bass VI.
Here to promote their latest EP release, Black Marmot can only be truly experienced live - so drop in and stay for a while. These guys continue to be one of our personal favorites. read more ...
Zak Trojano [Saturday November 24, 2012]
We're not sure how we stumbled upon Zak Trojano. I think we were looking for complementary musicians for Tom Schena's band. It doesn't matter, though, because his solo album is beautifully crafted from the heart and soul.
Zak had shared the stage with the brilliance of Chris Smither, and if you've ever heard Rusty Belle (an eclectic quartet Zak is a part of), then you know the talent must be overflowing. Please welcome Zak, bared and pared down.

Martin England [Saturday October 27, 2012]
Martin hails from North Berwick and delivers every time we see him.
Fomerly of Pondering Judd, a prolific New England favorite for over 15 years, Martin served as one of four elements of a whole. Now, doing what is essentially solo work with his album Razed and Reconstructed
, Martin ebbs and flows with a tide of amazingly talented local musicians and singer/songwriters (The Reconstructed) - whoever may be up for playing a gig. See what's on tap for this night - sure, you can see him in a bar with yackity-yacks talking about blah blah blah, OR you can sit quietly and feel every word and phrase as it was meant to be heard. Your choice. No judgment. read more ...
Will Dailey [Saturday, September 29, 2012]
The Big Room presents an unrivaled Boston-area talent (his band is The Rivals, but they're not playing) Please drum, Dave Brophy. Will doesn't play a whole lot of house concerts, so don't miss this very cool show!
Will is a 2-time winner of the Boston Music Awards for Best Male Singer-Songwriter and has been praised by Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Boston Globe, etc. His music was featured on more than 50 different television shows such as MTV's The Hills, NCIS, 90210, CSI: Miami, Eli Stone, CSI: New York, and they keep coming. read more ...

Sarah Blacker w/Eran Shaysh [Saturday March 3, 2012]
Sarah Blacker is described by her peers as one of the hardest working musicians in New England. And they're not kidding!
She is playing everywhere and anywhere she can, spreading the good word of brilliant music with inspiring lyrics and engaging the audience with personal stories about her songs. Guaranteed to be one of our best shows thus far. read more ...
Tom Schena [Saturday December 10, 2011]
Tom is a local singer/songwriter with earthy vocals and lyrics that bring you back to another lifetime. He's an up-and-coming talent - when he's famous, you can say you saw him live, here at The Big Room!
Opening for Tom this time is Katie Daggett from the north-of-Portland, ME area where she is a popular draw at the local venues. We appreciate having a Mainer on the ticket! read more ...
John Elliott and Jack Wilson [Saturday October 9, 2011]
John Elliott returns for the second October in a row to perform songs as they come to him. With piano and guitar, he sings in hushed whispers to himself to elevated, soul-crushing cries to the heavens.
Jack is from Austin, TX and has the depth and singing style to play alongside John as they travel together for this tour. The two together should prove to be a unique show. read more ...
Black Marmot [Saturday, April 23, 2011]
Found these guys while trolling another house concert in Rye, NH. What an amazing treat! Linde left us wanting more, so we began the journey to check them out live as a full band.
Even though Callahan won't be joining Tim, Linde and Mike Z, our new friend, Jeff Conley will play a few of his own songs and accompany them as well.
This show is in support of their masterfully done full-length debut album Run Home
