Rob DeSorbo has been playing since he was 12. He started playing rock and blues and eventually grew fond of jazz fusion. He was a member of the Blue Mountain Band (BMB), which formed in 1971 with a rock and blues focus that ultimately evolved into a jazz fusion focus. After BMB disbanded in 1981, Rob spent the next 30+ years recording and doing live shows and showcasing an eclectic mix of styles.
Terri Lachance has been playing and writing songs since her early teen years. Like one of her favorite original songs, she has always landed with “Two feet on the Ground” when confronted with life’s challenges. Her songs are rooted in her life experiences and her deeply held beliefs. Every tune emanates from her heart and soul.
Together, these musicians make up the Terri and Rob Duo. They perform a mix of covers and originals and they encourage you to see them live and enjoy their musical talents.
This latest release from veteran US-based prog rockers After The Fall is classic lyrical & instrumental Prog Rock on steroids! Tracks range from acoustic and lyrical, to hard driving fusion instrumentals, to full-blown Progressive Epics.
Heart, humor, and humility are the keys to success for singer/songwriter Troy Millette, a Fairfax, Vermont native who has quickly earned himself a reputation as one of New England’s most promising up-and-comers.

Plywood Cowboy frontman Steve Dedman writes heart-born songs that interweave the rich heritage of country roots with singer-songwriter traditions. A keyboardist and guitarist, Steve learned to pick and sing true American music at an early age, inspired by artists such as Kris Kristopherson and Lefty Frizzell. Dedman’s songs are featured on Plywood Cowboy’s 2016 debut album, Channel 33. Accolades for the music describe it as a “seriously hooky debut EP” (The Day) and “steeped in tradition, with lyrics full of longing, truth and heart” (Sound Waves Magazine).

Frank Albert has been pleasing crowds with his renditions of rock, jazz and rhythm & blues for over 30 years. He has performed in clubs all over Connecticut with his band, Frankie and The Know It Alls. He is known for his hard-driving guitar style and his flair for performing.
