MARCH’S HEADLINER — Bethany Van Delft

Bethany’s “hip & grounded, laid back delivery” has earned her the honor of performing at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and notable appearances on Comedy Central, TV Guide Channel, and NickMom. Her monthly show, “Artisanal Comedy,” has been named “one of the top indie nights to check out.” Unashamedly in touch with her inner nerd, Bethany enjoys being a panelist on “You’re the Expert” and “Literary Death Match,” and is a Mainstage storyteller and host for The Moth. She also performed in our very first comedy night.

FEATURING — Andrea Henry

Andrea has appeared on Nickelodeon's Search for America's Funniest Mom, Last Comic Standing, and The Great Canadian Laugh Off, and is a Comic in Residence at The Comedy Studio. She has participated in comedy festivals across the country including Ladies of Laughter, Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy, Chicago Woman's Funny Festival, The Maine Comedy Festival, The Women in Comedy Festival, Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh Off, and Memphis Urban Laughs. She writes jokes for Us Weekly Magazine's Fashion Police and is the co-author of Real Kids Jokes by Real Stand-Up Comics. She has also produced and starred in a funny documentary film about entering and losing the Mrs. Massachusetts Beauty Pageant.

FEATURING — John Baglio

Since he first stepped foot on stage at the ripe age of 19, John has become a mainstay in the Northeast comedy scene. He has opened for some of the biggest names in comedy today, including Hannibal Buress, Chad Daniels, Kyle Kinane, and Josh Wolf. He has also been featured in the Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, World Series of Comedy, Rogue Island Comedy Festival, Cleveland Comedy Festival, Laugh Your Asheville Off, and is a two-time winner of the Wootenany Comedy Festival. Currently, John can be seen producing and performing on The Mendoza Line, a weekly comedy showcase that was named Boston A-List’s “Best Night of Comedy.” He is an average karaoke singer.

OUR HOST — MIKE DORVAL!

After a mere three months of performing, Mike won the NH Comedy Festival, defeating some of New England’s most established comics and he quickly climbed the comedic ranks to become one of the youngest headliners in Boston history. He’s been praised by the Boston Globe as “One of Boston’s Best.” Mike has been featured on Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, starred in numerous TV commercials, and toured overseas for the USO. He has served as Comic In Residence at The Comedy Studio and is a favorite of the Boston Comedy Festival. He’s written and performed several one man shows which have had runs at the Charles Playhouse and Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater.

Michael Payette & Acoustic Roadshow (Tight Harmonies)

Acoustic Roadshow features local vocal phenom, Mike Payette (bass, vocals), along with Chris Leadbetter (guitar, vocals), and Daniel Webster (keyboards, vocals). They perform acoustic versions of the harmony-rich songs many of us grew up with (The Beatles, CSNY, Steely Dan, The Beach Boys).

They are as tight a cover band as you are ever likely to hear. Each, in turn, sings lead and their harmonies couldn’t be more spot on. And each is a talented instrumentalist.

They are guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face. They’re dripping with talent and just plain fun.

Myanna, featuring Ken Clark & Eddie Scheer  (Very Saxy)

Back for a return engagement. In November, Myanna, Ken, and Eddie performed at Orange Door resulting in one fan banging on the producer’s chest saying, “What’s happening here? How can we have just heard this in West Acton?” One of the hottest and most soulful saxophonists in the area, Myanna plays music that mixes jazz improvisation with funky rhythms, expressive playing, and catchy tunes. Her music has been described as funky, bluesy, rootsy, and spontaneous. In years past, she performed with the all-female band Lilith, then worked with the Bill Bellamy Project, followed by Girls’ Night Out. She has been playing with local favorite The Love Dogs since the ’90s. Myanna has recorded three CDs for the Bridge City label and has won awards for best jazz artist from both the “Boston Music Awards” and “The Boston Phoenix Readers Poll.”

Ali McGuirk at ODK

The 2018 Boston Music Award winner for “Blues Artist of the Year,” Ali McGuirk, has made a career of captivating audiences with her powerful, buttery voice and heartfelt songwriting. Her earliest years as a performer were spent earning residencies across four continents — from Santorini to Hong Kong.

In 2016, she was recognized by the Boston Globe as an “artist to hear,” along with Lake Street Dive, Haim, and other notables. In 2017, she released her first full-length album, “Slow Burn,” which was named on multiple year-end lists.

Her influences include Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Donny Hathaway, Bill Withers, Nina Simone, Sheila Jordan, Bonnie Raitt, and Janis Joplin.

The Boston Globe wrote, McGuirk is “a soul singer who evokes comparisons to Amy Winehouse, but rocks even harder.” And The Improper Bostonian noted, “When [Ali] opens her mouth, people stop and take notice, captivated by her swooping, honeyed voice.”

Doors open at 6:30pm
Come early and relax with some food and drink before the show starts.

Film Documentary Screening: “A PLASTIC OCEAN” 

This documentary follows an international team of scientists, researchers and environmental activists as they set out to reveal an astonishing amount of plastic waste lurking beneath the surface of our waters. Plastic’s durability, one of its strongest aspects, is also one of its biggest problems. The common plastic bag disintegrates into microplastic pieces that never go away. A Plastic Ocean lays bare the extent of plastic waste killing the previously pristine oceans and raises worrisome implications for our future. See what plastic pollution is doing globally, and let’s think locally about steps we can take.

Ninety-one cites and towns in Massachusetts have banned single-use plastic checkout bags in retail stores and restaurants. A citizen’s petition has put a bag ban on the warrant for Acton Town meeting. Come and view this timely documentary to learn more.

Co-sponsored by Senator Jamie Eldridge, Ban the Bag Acton, and West Acton Villageworks.

Free admittance. Doors open at 6:45

Laura Vecchione (Singer/Songwriter)
Feb

7:30 PM19:30

Laura Vecchione (Singer/Songwriter)

The Boston Globe dubbed singer and songwriter, Laura Vecchione, “a bluesy songstress” and proudly proclaimed, “Vecchione is all ours.” Laura has recorded with multi-Grammy-award winning producers, opened for major label artists, and has had her songs featured on national radio and television.

Born in New York City, Laura’s classical and Broadway voice training began at age 15. In college, Laura found herself in the warm embrace of the Columbia/Barnard Gospel Choir while studying Jazz Voice at Manhattan School of Music. Laura moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. Later, studying guitar with local maestros John Curtis (Patty Griffin, Jon Pousset-Dart Band) and Ksenia Mack (Porch Party Mamma’s) she began writing and performing original material.

Recently, Laura traveled from her home in Boston to record in Nashville, between teaching and playing. From Muscle Shoals to Motown, to poignant singer/songwriter ballads, each song reflects themes of resilience and hope, masterfully executed by Vecchione’s incredible vocals and supported by a host of Nashville’s A-list session players.

“Laura Vecchione hails from New York, lives in Boston, and recorded in Nashville. Keep this quick bio handy to remind yourself that she’s not from Chicago, because she sounds a whole lot more South Side than Soho, Allston, or Grand Ole Opry.” — Rob Weir, Valley Advocate

“Don’t mess with the Veck. . . . If you do, she’ll write a killer song about you and sing the *@#% out of it.” — Jim Scott (Grammy-winning producer/engineer: Wilco, Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks, Lucinda Williams).

February’s Theme: “Almost”

FEATURED TELLERS

Janelle Codianni
Janelle is a writer, performer, story coach, and the owner of High Maintenance, her handy-woman business. She co-produces Harpy, a storytelling show in Somerville that features the voices of women and femmes. When she isn’t doing these things, she’s remodeling her vintage camper, powerlifting, or attempting to casually talk to her two daughters about consent.

Mark Modrall
Mark is a computer programmer from Littleton.  He started telling stories in public about six years ago when he ran out of relatives who hadn't heard that one before. He's won several story slams at the Moth and Massmouth, and he's been a featured speaker at WGBH's “Stories From the Stage.” And he counts himself blessed that he's occasionally invited to speak with much better tellers at great venues, like Fugitive Productions.

Don Picard
Don Picard is a Moth storyteller who shares his own moving life moments with humor and humility. He has worked in software development for nearly 30 years and is currently employed for JobCase, “a place to manage all things work-related, especially the wisdom, experience and connections” of other job hunters. Don was a double major in Theatre Arts and Computer Science at Cornell, and chose to work as an engineer in order to be able to live in Cambridge and feed his family. Don enjoys telling live stories about his kids, husband, and extended family as it is fun, therapeutic, and allows him to exercise the other half of his college degree so he doesn’t become bitter.

TREJUR Thomas Kim | Concord MA | 10 min
2018 AIFF Best Animation Short | High School
A modern woman remembers her wretched, toy-giving grandmother in this dark, hand-made, fantasy, stop motion animation. Trejur (pronounced "treasure") is a story that questions how desperation can transform us into something we never thought ourselves to be.

CAGE | Pengpeng Du | 5 min | USA — The life of a concubine was bound; she is consumed by her man through both dream and reality.

PEARL | Patrick Osborne | USA | 6 min — Set inside their home, a beloved hatchback, Pearl follows a girl and her dad as they crisscross the country chasing their dreams. It’s a story about the gifts we hand down and their power to carry love. And finding grace in the unlikeliest of places.

Molly Flannery & Haley Peltz

SONGS FROM THE HEART (CANÇÔES DO CORAÇÂO)

When Molly and Haley met, they instantly recognized each other as musical soulmates. They discovered they both love jazz standards, Brazilian music, and are devoted fans of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro. 

Composer, arranger, and keyboardist Molly Flannery is known for her distinctive touch on the piano, her melodic improvisations, and her ability to groove in jazz, latin, and Brazilian idioms. After studying composition, improvisation and theory at Yale, Molly began her performing career in Japan where she appeared frequently at local clubs. When she eventually settled in Boston, she studied jazz with Ran Blake, Charlie Banacos, Kenny Werner, Harvey Diamond, and Doug Johnson. Her CD releases include ”Slow Dance at the Asylum” and “Riding the Bull.”

Singer/Composer Haley Peltz grew up in Lincoln and recently moved back from Brazil where she lived for several years. While immersing herself in Brazilian music, Haley also strove to bring the U.S. sound to her adopted country. Her last project abroad, a tribute show to the 100 years of Ella Fitzgerald, received critical and public acclaim in Brazil. In 2016, she was awarded first place in the Popular Singing Competition at the São Paulo School of Music. Haley continues to seek new cultural connections between American jazz and Brazilian music, highlighting women composers.

RD King / Walter & The Night Owls

R.D. King is a Boston-based composer and acoustic guitar extraordinaire. The winner of the 2017 Canadian Guitar Festival's International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, King has opened for Andy McKee, Liz Longley, Ari Hest, and many others. His song "Lightness of Being" recently won the Instrumental category at the 2018 Walnut Valley Festival New Song Showcase.

Listening to King’s music is an emotional and introspective journey that is difficult to parse into genre or tradition. King’s audiences describe his music as passionate, powerful, and deeply memorable. A graduate of Ithaca College School of Music, King performs at venues in New England and beyond, including TedX Cambridge, Boston Greenfest, the Spire Center, Walnut Valley Festival, Club Passim, and others. His debut album, vs. Self, was released on April 28, 2017. His second album, self-titled, is set for release in January 2019.

Opening for RD is Acton-based Walter & The Night Owls, an alternative-folk music quartet that has been making waves in the independent Boston music scene. Combining acoustic guitar, violin, and cello with soft vocal harmonies they create a sound all their own. Drawing inspiration from acclaimed songwriters like The Weepies, Paul Simon, and David Gray, the four-piece group is comprised of Walter Rodriguez (vocals/guitar), Masami Rodriguez (violin), Afton Cyrus (vocals), and Kristy Foye (cello). Music from their initial EP has been featured in commercials and films, and has been licensed for use on MTV2 network specials along with other international media outlets. Their debut album, “Living in all Directions,” was released in 2015
