On a cold winter night, following yet another New England Winter 2011 snow storm, a group of folks gathered at The Stone Church on Zion Hill in Newmarket, NH to witness the Grand Finale of band that should not be going on hiatus.
Hey Mama, featuring Avi Salloway and Celia Woodsmith formed seven years ago at the University of Vermont and have been touring throughout the US and Canada performing over 500 gigs. The band also includes Paul Chase on bass and Jared Seabrook on drums.
The group opened with "At the End of the Day" the first cut off the third CD Hey Mama from 2009. They followed this with "White Room of the Night" off their new CD Dubl Handi Suite, which can only purchased via their web site as a download.
Tonight Salloway crowd surfed with his guitar and it was still pretty F***ing Awesome!
Salloway is heading to the Middle East in February and Woodsmith is joining an all girl Bluegrass band. Both plan to keep the musical talents fresh and are in fact planning a few dates together for the summer of 2011.
Keep an eye for these dates because you will not want to miss them--these are four very talented musicians!
