East of Shirley

This is being posted late as July 7th has come and gone. The remainder of the schedule and information is good! Go to the East Of Shirley (EOS) myspace page and give them a listen. They are quite good. I need to arrange to catch one of their shows!

(text below reprinted from the group's email alert for their summer gigs)

Just a quick update on EoS's upcoming gigs.

Tonight "East of Shirley" will be performing in a special "unplugged" edition at Groton's Stagecoach Inn. Many of our band mates are off vacationing this week, so tonight what's "Left of Shirley" will be playing: Michael Clark on acoustic guitar, National Steel, and andolin,
with Ed Conley on congas, drums, rainstick, and African thumb piano! We'll be doing our usual setlist of covers and originals, focusing on the tunes that will be appearing on our upcoming (fall 07) CD: "A Thousand Sarajevos." The show starts at 8:30 or so; see below for details on how to get there.

The larger, 6-piece Shirley contingent will return to the Stagecoach for our regular "first Saturday" show on August 4.

We'll also be performing in August at The Java Room in Chelmsford (Friday the 24th), one of our favorite venues, a great little listening room in the northern 'burbs that presents local musicians on Friday and Saturday nights.

And finally, we've been asked to perform this year at Grotonfest. Details are still being worked out, so stay tuned for further info on that.

You can visit us online at http://www.myspace.com/eastofshirley, where you can hear some of our recent demo recordings, download them for free, and check out the links of our many musical fellow-travelers.

Also be sure to check out the gigging schedule of our percussionist Ed Conley, who plays lots of hot jazz when he isn't exploring the Shirley-side-of-life: http://www.edconley.com/Schedule.htm

Thanks, and we'll see you at the shows!

Mike, Tim, Steve, Nate, Doug, Dan, and Ed
