Entrain will bring its high-energy music to Cotuit Center for the Arts on Thursday, July 17, at 8 PM. The concert is appropriate for all ages.
The Martha’s Vineyard-based band was founded in 1993 by drummer Tom Major. “The most important thing that we try to do with our music,” Mr. Major said, “is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums.”
Entrain has been praised for its ability move easily among diverse musical styles—from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk, Latin and African rhythms—sometimes within the same song.
Band members include lead singer and guitarist Brian Alex; bassist M’Talewa; Rob Loyot on saxophone, keyboard, and percussion; Hilary Noble on saxophone and congas; and Lennie Peterson on saxophone and percussion. All are accomplished musicians who have played with such greats as Bo Diddley, Carly Simon, Chuck Berry, Southside Johnny, James Montgomery, Flor De Cana, and Blood, Sweat & Tears.
Entrain, who released its eighth album, “Reason to Feel Good,” in 2012, recently returned from its first tour of Germany.
Tickets for the concert are $25, $22 for seniors, and $20 for members of the center. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28. To purchase tickets, visit artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.
