393 Above: A blend of American roots, folk, blues and rock
Formed in 2011, the 393 Above band members are: Peter Brown: bass/vocals, Jim Stickney: guitars/vocals, Stuart Rowley: guitars/vocals/songwriter, Mike Dufort: drums & percussion and Jeff Noreault: sound engineer/harmonica.
Their sound is a blend of American roots, folk, blues and rock. The band plays original material and covers songs by such artists as The Eagles, Bruce Cockburn, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Neil Young, CS&N, The Police and Bob Dylan.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles coming to the USA and performing on the Ed Sullivan Show.
The band 393 Above is a big fan of The Beatles and will present a concert of their songs on October 30 at NCCC.
Stuart Rowley of 393 Above remarks, "The Beatles have been a big influence on my own songwriting and our band. Growing up in Malone I can remember going to NewBerry's and Grants to buy their albums and 45s. I was in 5th grade at Flanders Elementary School when they played for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964. I had just started trumpet lessons (along with Jim Stickney) and was directly effected by The Beatles' music. Many of us started to learn to play guitar a few years later. By high school, we were forming our own bands and playing at dances and later at bars in the area."
Thursday night's performance by 393 Above will consist of an acoustic set and electric set of Beatle songs. We encourage everyone to join us and sing along!
