Gig alert: appearing with Robert Cedrone on Saturday, June 6

By Noah | June 4, 2009

My good friend Robert Cedrone appears occasionally doing solo gigs north of Boston, and I often accompany him on bass.   This Saturday, June 6, we’ll be appearing for an hour starting at 7 PM at the Starbucks (map) that’s on the north side of Lexington, MA (not the one in the center of town!) Robert plays acoustic guitar and sings a mix of covers including Van Morrison, Al Green, Southside Johnny, Roy Orbison, etc., and some originals too. The gig will be very small, very informal (this is a Starbucks, not House of Blues), and quite short, but if you feel like stopping by for some coffee and a little music, please do!  Robert has for years been the lead singer and guitarist for legendary Boston-area band, the Urge, and these local gigs give him a chance to get and do something a bit quieter. There are also a couple of other groups on ahead of us, so come early.

The gig will be at:

60 Bedford St
Lexington, MA 02420
(781) 863-1189

Here’s the official announcement:

Subject: Good Music This Saturday


Come on out! Bring the kids! We’ve got an excellent line-up of (free!) acoustic music for your listening pleasure! Exclamation point!

Saturday, June 6th, from 5 to 8 pm
Starbucks, 60 Bedford Street in Lexington

Performers (in order of appearance):

The Wicked Pickers

“The Wicked Pickers present a wonderfully eclectic blend of acoustic jazz, swing and folk with bluegrass instrumentation” says Carol Gyurina, of the Melrose Arts and Cultural Association. Stu McIntire of Café Emerson notes the “wildly enthusiastic” audience response to this quartet’s “wide variety of interesting originals and select covers in an eclectic jazz, newgrass, folk, and even classically-inspired fusion.” This should be an enormous treat!

Mikel McCavana

This nineteen-year-old Lexington native has been writing lyric-driven acoustic rock songs since he was sixteen. His influences range from 1960s folk to modern indie rock, but his songs are a melting pot of musical genres where no specific style predominates. A dynamic live performer, Mikel brings an energetic and appealing stage presence to each concert. This summer, he will be recording and self-releasing his first EP entitled “What’s Really Inside Me.”

Robert Cedrone

Robert Cedrone is a Lexington resident who has played on the local circuit for the past 30 years. After playing 30 plus years with the local rock/blues band The Urge, Robert now likes to tune things down to acoustic music. Inspired by the likes of Van Morrison and Greg Allman, Robert loves to cover pop/R & B standards with a different twist as well as mix in a collection of original compositions. Robert is accompanied by another Lexington resident, Noah Mendelsohn, on bass guitar. Noah has been playing rock, blues, folk and country electric bass for over 30 years, and he often appears locally with the Rock City Band.
