Ryan Montbleau Band, Naukabout Beer SpringFest
Friday, May 12, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 1:00 am EDT $30
Today Montbleau continues to maintain a busy touring schedule, dividing gigs between solo shows and concerts with various line-ups of the Ryan Montbleau Band. “I loved playing with my original band and still do, whenever we may get the chance. But touring with different musicians has taught me to be a better bandleader and forced me to be a better musician,” Montbleau reflects. “Another thing I’ve learned is that as you continue your life as a songwriter and performer, you learn your limitations and grow into them,” he continues. “You learn how to push yourself to write lyrics that get as close to what you want to say as possible, or to find the right music to say it with, or to sing in a way that really carries the message in your heart. That’s where I feel like I’ve arrived today, and I’m excited to find out where I’m going next.”
7pm Brian Sances Band, 8pm Mark T. Small, 9 pm Ryan Montbleau Band. Montbleau began as a solo performer, appearing often on stage at the first House of Blues club in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and made his early recordings primarily with just his guitar. By 2006 he’d formed the Ryan Montbleau Band and was branching out of the coffeehouse and folk scene into the jam world, spending much of each year on the road.
