If you missed their first full show dedicated to the musical legacy of Peter, Paul & Mary at Rick’s Music World last year…no problem because they’re coming back on October 13th! This time bass player, Eric (Snake) Gulliksen will be joining them. (You might remember Snake from the band Orpheus.)

Their last show at Rick’s was a great success. The overflow crowd was singing along as they were re-acquainted with music from that important time in our Country. We heard many wonderful stories that started with …..”I remember where I was when……..” Rick Fetters, and Andy & Judy Daigle invite you to come down to Rick’s Music World in Raynham on October 13th to join them and once again re-connect with the music of this influential folk trio.

Tickets are available at Rick’s.  Come hungry!  The gourmet sandwiches, salads & desserts are de-lish!

Sweet Babylon -10/25/12 Open Mic Feature

Our next Feature puts the ssss-punk in October!  Sweet Babylon is a ska / reggae / punk rock band so well received by our Open Mic crowd that we wanted to hear more of them.

The Group was formed in late 2011 by three friends from the Fall River, Mass area looking to bring back the ska and reggae sound from their generation (which was the 90's) to the new generation of Justin Beiber fans. "I can only compare us as a Blink-182 / Sublime .. love child,” says Kyle Platt, lead singer of the Group.

  Sweet Babylon has  written tons of original music and also cover a lot of great music from many artists like Sublime to Kid Cudi.

Kyle Platt is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the group, with his smooth singing and wise cracking jokes he makes sure that every song turns into a party! Next on the roster is Izzy Star! He is the bassist and background vocalist in the group. With his shag-a-delic bass grooves and great harmonies he is capable of making any person shake their "toocus." Last, but definitely not least, is Brandon Carreiro on drums. His beats are able to fill up any music lover’s stomach. (Yes, that was beat reference to food...) All together they form the perfect little girl known as "Sweet Babylon!”
