Live Music courtesy of the JC Trio!
The JC Trio will be performing after the race to give participants a taste of what Music Alley is all about.
The JC Trio represents a dying breed of rock and roll.. They originated out of Quincy, MA. during one of the coldest winters in New England history. They play a blues / rock / soul / punk / funk style that really isn't too similar with any other current bands. Johnny Lightning shreds the guitar and sings, Dr. Thunder rips a thunderous bass and Billy Tornado brings the boom on the drums. You can hear mixes of Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, ZZ Top, and Nirvana nestled in to their vintage sound. Be sure to catch this new age original rock and roll band when they come to your town, as their live show often extends into some groovy jams!
