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.

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…
