The Little Compton Band w/Gumption & Glory

May 7, 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 1:00 am

Rhode Island’s Up & Coming Act

From their website:

The Little Compton Band embodies a new age of roots rock. Camaraderie around small town living, improvised musical journeys, and a commitment to craft has forged this powerful group. On a seaside farm in southern Rhode Island, the five friends began making music at a young age. Through the years, the LCB has developed a sound that is remarkably classic in nature. A common infatuation with the musical languages of soul, jazz, country western, and blues, coupled with their spiritual connection to the rural north, created a unique sound that transcends the status quo.

LCB is Regularly Headlining all there major Rhode Island Venues ( the MET, The Narrows center for the arts, the spot underground, Newport Blues Cafe) and having the opportunity to support many nationally touring acts (dumpstafunk,Nth power, zoe muth,).Along with the good fortune of being the highest grossing acts at the 2013, 2014 annual Gratitude Harvest Fest. Members have played along side the North Mississippi All Stars and the Allman Brothers, and have a seasoned stage presence.

The fertile soils of their homeland, and deep roots of local fans have produced tremendous Rhode Island support. The LCB is versatile and adaptive to different venues. Leaving the comfort of their first studio in Little Compton, they started in the RI bar scene. There they became known for their powerful sets of unique songs. The group would play for three to four hours without batting an eye, filling the evening with forgotten covers from there influences such as The Band, the Allman Brothers, Steely Dan and the Grateful Dead. All along, making a point to interject their expanding original repertoire. With growing support, their original catalog has developed into full sets, often referred to by listeners as “hits from another era” with a timeless feel.Join The Little Compton Band and take part in the music.
