Coming off their sold out Depeche Mode / Smiths / New Order New Wave tribute, The Engagements shift gears again. Tonight they'll feature their lead vocalist J.D. Smoothe on rare, but classic, funk & soul. Expect explosive covers of Prince, Cameo, Shalamar, James Brown, Aretha, Chaka Khan, and more.
The New Originals are a 5 piece Boston-based cover band that honor the great legends of rock and roll. Take 5 friends, all veterans of Boston's pop rock / indie rock scene, and let them loose playing the music they love and grew up with... it's genuine. It's authentic. It's real rock and roll. Covers include Springsteen, the Stones, Tom Petty, CCR and many more!
