Jef Charland and the Bored of Health
Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 3pm | Tickets $20
Led by local veteran singer-songwriter Marc Pinansky, The Bored of Health create an intimate sound that often conjures memories of AM radio and gate-fold vinyl LP’s. This trio (Jef Charland on Upright Bass, harmonies, Mike Castellana on electric guitar) applies subtle, tastefully skilled musicianship to a range of original songs that often feel familiar, yet offer something new. While playfully described as ‘Country-folk for city folk’, their sound actually covers a wide range of styles, touching on rock, jazz, and Latin. Lyrically turning from sentimental personal journeys to freer, dreamier images and associations, The Bored of Health simultaneously soothe and stimulate the mind, which is the perfect recipe for good health.
