NYE Bash featuring Entrain!
Presented by Blue Ocean Music Hall
December 31, 2012 - January 1, 2013
Epic in sound and kaleidoscopic in vision, the eclectic Martha's Vineyard-based six piece Entrain, formed by drummer Tom Major in 1993, includes conga/djembe/trombonist Sam Holmstock, lead singer/guitarist wiz Brian Alex, bassist M'Talewa, saxophonist/percussionist Phillip Young and keyboardist Tony Falcetti. 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 Sweet and Tears. They have also taken the stage with James Taylor and former President Bill Clinton.
Entrain has recorded eight albums, with musical selections ranging from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk - often within the same song. The whole Entrain concept is based around the drums and infectious rhythms. “The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums,” says Major. Their song "Dancin' in The Light" has been featured in a national TV and radio commercial for The Sylvania Light Company. Several tracks from their fourth CD "All One" are also featured in the Artisan film Cutaway.
