Pete Francis (Dispatch) w/s/g Black Rock Social

Tix here! ----->

The Acoustic welcomes back Pete Francis of Dispatch w/ special guests Black Rock Social. Last time these two bands were here for Pete's CD Release Party, they brought the house down. What will happen this time? Only one way to find out!

As co-founder of Dispatch- a trio widely recognized as one of the biggest independent acts in rock history-singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Pete Francis proved himself to be an artist of boundless creativity and joyful versatility. Nearly two decades after the band first broke onto the New England scene, Francis continues to create boldly innovative music through his work as a solo musician, record producer, and member of the still majorly crowd-drawing Dispatch.

A roots reggae band with a twist, Black Rock Social comes hard with powerful originals, tasteful arrangements of reggae classics, and covers you'd never expect, all setting the stage for genre bending jams. Though only a band for a short time, they have already attracted sit-ins from the likes of Mighty Mystic, Pete Francis of Dispatch,Chris Simmons of Leon Russell Band and Josh Barrett of The Wailers.
