What started as a side project of Jay Basiner and Andrew Martelle’s full time band This Way, became so popular so quickly that the two decided to give into the North of Nashville muse completely and have since toured the country from Burlington to Houston, have performed with headliners from Dierks Bentley to Lake Street Dive and have attracted rave reviews from their debut self-titled record by publications including The Boston Globeand No Depression.


"Country music for people who love and hate country music"


Pursuing their passion for honky-tonk, the Highwaymen and pure pop music, North of Nashville “combines shades of country, bluegrass, honky-tonk and rock into a seamless fusion of feeling and melody”. (Alan Cackett, Mavrick)


“There’s Basiner’s engagingly twangy vocals, there’s excellent fiddle work from Martelle, and there’s an honest, sincere approach to writing country songs, which sets them apart from the legions of mainstream country artists”. (Bangor Daily News)


*********************


Joe Gallant and the Transit is a 4 piece alt-country act based out of Portland, ME featuring "searing guitars" (Portland Phoenix) "gruff-but-melodic vocals" (Culture Shock) and a monster rhythm section. A style that has drawn comparison to Eric Church and Ryan Adams, JG&T take elements of country, blues and rock with a north woods twist to create a live show with something for everyone.

A cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior… Favoring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs and shelters become overcrowded. 13-year-old Lili fights desperately to protect her pet Hagen, but her father eventually sets the dog free on the streets. Hagen and his pretty master search desperately for each other until Lili loses faith. Struggling to survive, homeless Hagen realizes that not everyone is a dog’s best friend. Hagen joins a gang of stray dogs, but is soon captured and sent to the pound. With little hope inside there, the dogs will seize an opportunity to escape and revolt against mankind. Their revenge will be merciless. Lili may be the only one who can halt this unexpected war between man and dog.

TOM PORTER AND FRIENDS
You may know Tom Porter as the English voice on Maine public radio, but he will not be appearing at Frontier in his capacity as a news broadcaster. Tom will be here to indulge his passion for playing Jazz. A former professional jazz pianist in his native UK Tom has played with some of the top recording artists on both sides of the pond. He'll be joined by a superb collection of Maine-based musicians: Musical educator Frank Mauceri on saxophone. On bass is the hugely talented and experienced Sam Sherry (and he's not as old as that makes him sound!).  Percussive accompaniment is provided by the subtle and creative drumming of Mark Barnette. They'll be performing a mixture of a old and new music, including some original material and several much-loved standards.

This special event will be held in the gallery space adjacent to Frontier.*


Hailing from Midcoast Maine this band comprised of former 'Liquid Daydream' members Matthias Sampson/Vocals, Christian Muccino/Guitars and Jordan Warsky/Drums brings more than 20 years of making music together to create an elegant spectrum of music with deeply thought-provoking lyrics that will touch places deep within the human heart. Two decades worth of music collaboration has created a sound and unity that is time honed with the patina of experience.

 

Endless Interstate, have a brand new album on the way – “New Fire”, which is set to be released during March and JamSphere had this to say in a recent review.  “The vocal dynamics and songwriting abilities shine all the way through this album. From the opening sounds of “Scratching The Surface” which starts the album with great sounding promise through to the eloquently beautiful “Wake Up” and the intensely rhythmic title track “New Fire” to the swampy “Paper Tiger”.

 

*In order for Frontier to accommodate your dinner reservations, we strongly encourage that they are made in advance. All reservation requests will be accounted for in the order in which they are received.  Frontier takes a limited amount of customers per hour and we do not service inside our theater/gallery.  Beverages and concessions may be purchased at the box office or bar and brought into the theater (not the gallery) before the show begins.

The award winning Ameranouche Trio (pronounced uh-MARE-uh-noosh) is the premier gypsy jazz trio in the United States. The name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of guitarist Django Rienhardt. This rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic jazz, mixed with soul, flamenco, and bebop influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous, and elegant. Whether they're playing a musette waltz  from 1930 or a funk-inspired original tune, Ameranouche is the sound of gypsy jazz in the 21st century.

"More than an exceptional form of gypsy oriented jazz, Ameranouche is a capture of joyfulness itself." - Pat Martino

"Their music was so infectious it stopped us in our tracks." - Festival Preview, Newport Jazz Festival

"The NEW sound of America!" - Kevin Wheatley, National Lampoon director

Raging Brass Reggae was formed in 2014 by trumpeter Marc Chillemi. This 7-piece brass band pays tribute to 1960s Jamaican Ska, Rocksteady and Roots Reggae. Created in South Portland, Maine, RBR includes trumpet, trombone, alto & tenor saxophones, guitar, tuba and drums. Featuring an all-star collection of musicians from Portland based bands Primo Cubano, Rustic Overtones, The Fogcutters Big Band, Sly Chi, and the Portland Rumba Project.



Raging Brass Reggae has been a long time vision of Marc's that has finally come to fruition. After hearing the music of the legendary Skatelites for the first time, Marc knew he wanted to learn and play this music.



Marc assembled a hand-pick horn section from Portland's most inventive and soulful players. Using tuba instead of electric bass, which is common in New Orleans music and brass bands from around the world, the beginning of the RBR sound was in place. Marc calls this rhythmic foundation "T&D".



In addition to the performance side of RBR, there is an educational element. In 2014, Marc was awarded a project grant by the Maine Arts Commission to start a pilot program to teach young music students about jazz improvisation and how to groove as a group through this Jamaican music and it's history that lead to its invention. The program serves as an expansion to the existing methods used in public schools throughout the United States. Our goal is to inspire horn players of all ages to explore and discover their own sound and style. Out of many one sound.



Marc Chillemi - bandleader, trumpeter, arranger, composer, educator 
Barry Saunders - tenor, soprano, and baritone saxophonist, educator 
Mike Ayotte - alto and tenor saxophonist
Dave Noyse - trombone, reggae officiator
Rafael Kielt-Freyre, tubist, bassist, master plumber 
Matt Wasowski - guitarist, educator
Gary Gemitti - drummer and groove master

NATIVE ISLES (keyboards, trumpet, flugelhorn, vocals)
A brother and sister duo, Tyler and Emma grew up in Bar Harbor, Maine but have spent most of their years since childhood in different areas.


Tyler, in Portland and now a resident of Brunswick, has been a member of the Portland based funk/soul band, Sly - Chi for over 10 years. As well, he has been involved in a number of local projects that have had national recognition such as Gypsy Tailwind and Jacob Augustine. Most recently he played at Sundance International Film Festival with The Pete Kilpatrick Band backing John Popper of Blues Traveler.


Emma, after graduating from The Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, has done three tours with the Broadway Musical, Spamalot, playing in the orchestra. She also was a musical performer at the 2010 Junior Olympics in Singapore. Emma now resides in Portland, Maine and plays with The Fogcutters Big Band.

Brazilian Choro has been around for over a hundred years, but in this country itʼs virtually unknown. David Grisman, Mike Marshall and a handful of others have helped introduce the music and the musicians to a larger audience, but itʼs still largely under the radar of most music listeners...Its beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and syncopated rhythms combine elements of European folk and classical, ragtime, jazz, Latin, and African music creating a style that is uniquely Brazilian.


Based in Portland, Maine, Choro Louco are driven by their love of the music. They play monthly at Portlandʼs eclectic club Blue, and have appeared at Acoustic Artisans and Mayo Street Arts.


Members of Choro Louco come from diverse backgrounds and can be seen in various ensembles locally. Carl Dimow, flute and guitar, has played jazz, classical, and klezmer music here and abroad with the Casco Bay Tummlers, and numerous other ensembles. Nicole Rabata, flute, plays primarily celtic, classical and contemporary classical styles. Joel Eckhaus comes from an old time/jazz/pop/vaudeville background and has applied his knowledge of the ukulele to the Cavaquinho, Brazilʼs version of the uke. Kris Day plays with various bluegrass, rockabilly, and jazz bands in Portland. Eric LaPerna is best known for his percussion work with the middle eastern ensemble, Okbari, but has proven equally adept at Brazilʼs version of the tambourine, the pandeiro.
