Peacheaters Band at the Cannery on 03/12/16

Review by: Glen Peladeau - Publisher/Editor of SFLM


It was late Saturday night and I have still not made a decision as to what band I should do a live music review on. I did have some great bands that were performing close by to choose from. I decided on the "Peacheaters" a six piece band that is a tribute to the Allman Brothers Band. These guys perform all over New England so having them nearby was a treat.  Also, they are performing in one of the area's newest venues called the Cannery Music Hall.  This venue sports a superb digital sound system in an acoustically designed space. This is a fantastic place to see local and regional acts perform.

So by the time I arrived it was just before 10:00 PM with a few songs left to their 1st set. I like to get in around this time for reviews anyways because it gives the…

The Teter Todders @ The Kasbar in Worcester, MA 04/18/15

It's Saturday night and I set out to get in on some live music and perhaps do a live music review.  There's that old saying not to mix business with pleasure but my business of doing live music reviews is it is my pleasure.  Anyways, first I made a few stops through Millbury to pay a visit to a friends' band, second I stopped in at the Wheelock Inn. I was not feeling it there so I moved on and ended up at the Kasbar. After settling down on a seat near the band stage I took in a good visual and had a good listen. Again, if I am not feeling it I just won't do it. Putting a review together takes time, I have the all verbiage for the review to do and photos to upload and edit and then another upload to the server. So this leads me to a decision…

The band SEED performs at Stomping Ground in Pomfret, CT 04/11/14

Friday night after a long day at work and teaching music until 6 PM I made an effort to go to the The Vanilla Bean Cafe in Pomfret, CT to catch the tail end of a singer/songwriter showcase. When I arrived there the performers were packing up. Oops to late! Perhaps next week I will try again but I didn't let that curb my appetite and hunger for live music.

Not being sure what to expect I headed towards Putnam CT to try the stomping ground. The band I stumbled upon was AMAZING! At first I was going to have a beer, take a listen in, then go home after all I was a bit tired. Usually when I see a new band I either just have a listen and give the band a few months to mature or just take in another night of listening to get a good…

The Matt Brodeaur Trio Performs in Millbury 05/17/2013

The Mat Brodeaur band is a great little band gaining new friends and fans fast. I caught up with them last last week at the PACC in Webster, MA. What a great place to see a local band. The band is basically a trio consisting of Matt on guitar and vocals, Dale Packard on Bass and John Fyffe on drums. While the band is still relativley new to the scene they have much to contribute to it and live music fans in the local area are enjoying their raw energy and classic rock mix. When you hear Matt...
