THE BITTER and BROKEN MEN'S CHORUS has been together for 10 years, they are Tom Fettig (of Fettig Tile fame, a family business for over 50 years) on vocals and Chris Vetromile on guitar. They have been friends since High School. Both are aging punk rockers who have been in several loud and naughty bands over the years, like PHILTH SHACK, STUDLORDS, SPEEDBUGGY and OVERNITE SENSATION, but have now gone the way of aging punkers, acoustic. However, age and lack of amplification has not lessened their punk rock sensibilities. They are from Orleans.
HOBO VILLAGE are some Wellfleet local color consisting of Grateful Ted Lucas on mandolin, vocals and indoor plumbing, Chris Manulla, guitars, vocals and bivalves (deputy Shellfish Constable of Wellfleet) and Jack Ravenshield on guitar, bass and vocals and are a transcendental proto punk psychedelic folk rock trio. They have been picking and strumming across clam flats, dunes and bars in various incarnations and groups through out the outer Cape, including DIRTY PEARL, SUPERSOUL, ATOM OF LOVE and TERRADACTLE.
Mary J Martin is of course the Outer Cape's high priestess of Uke, a known piker (who owes me $20) and all around bon vivant. MJM started playing Ukulele in Nova Scotia, were she was part of J. CHALMERS DOANE'S group of young Uke players who toured eastern and central Canada eh, and Vermont, made albums and appeared on national radio and television. Sasha Von BonBon, founder and leader of the Toronto burlesque group, SCANDELLES says MJM is their "Uke Diva at large, notorious for blistering LED ZEP solos. She frequently jams with New York's UKULELE-CABARET and Boston's UKULELE NOIR. She is a STRONG believer in the ukulele's versatility in relation to karmic re-alignment. She lives in Provincetown.
Also, it's $10 dollars at the door ($8 with your WOMR member card). 3 bands, and FREE BBQ while supplies last, provided by RUSS and MARIE'S MARCONI BEACH RESTAURANT in beautiful South Wellfleet.
