Ocean Mist- SOLD OUT!
May 1, 2023
Dr. Westchesterson and The Headband capped off a month of April shows with a sold out show at The Ocean Mist in Matunuck, RI. Despite foul weather and an angry sea adding to the drama of the evening, Headbandbandheads old and new braved the elements to witness the final show of the run. And what a run.
After strong shows in Burlington VT, Western Massachusetts and New Haven the band capitalized on the O-Mist crowd's energy; receiving, amplifying and returning it tenfold. The April run of shows mark the first appearance of Cool Cool Cool lead vocalist Sammi Garett who features heavily on Better Days Ahead. The album features drummer Tommy Diehl and guitarist Rob Davis as well so the albums tracks performed checked boxes in terms of their faithfulness to the studio recordings. Along with Marty Moroney on Bass, Sir Ian Kelly on rhythm guitar and Dave Lefkin on B3 and synthesizer The Headband blew through an almost two hour-long set of album tracks and Yacht Rock classics. After a short intermission...
Dr. Westchesterson returned to the stage and unleashed new material off of his upcoming EP, "Don't Look Back" which drops on all major streaming platforms on Friday May 26th. The EP once again features Sammi Garett providing her exceptional vocal skills. The Dr.'s new hybrid "Yacht Rock-Hip Hop" sound recalls 90's era hip hop a la Jay-Z/Biggie as opposed to his earlier Beastie Boys-edged 80's style tracks. Asses shook, bros fist-bumped and the first sell out of Dr. Westchesterson & The Headband's career was in the books.
Dr. Westchesterson & The Headband's next performance will be Fri/Sat July 14-15 at Captain Nick's on Block Island. More shows are being planned for Oct/Nov/Dec 23'.
