The Russell Hill Band

Things are really picking up steam at Gravity, as we bring in local talent, The Russell Hill Band. These guys have a ton of original material and feature some fantastic rhythyms and guitar playing. Be sure to get there early and get a good seat!

Great time with Michelle and Erik!

A great time was had on Friday night, thanks in large part to Michelle's powerful vocals and Erik's smooth work on the strings. I suspect we'll be seeing them again in the future!

Next up--RHB.

Music this Friday at Gravity

Friday, May 21 at The Gravity Tavern:

“Acoustic Memoirs - featuring Michelle & Erik Strout”

Introduced to each other during a gig in 1994, NH natives, Michelle and Erik Strout found an exciting musical balance. The two continued to play music together after that initial college performance; and four years later became a highly sought out husband/wife musical duo. Their repertoire mix of classic rock, folk and blues is a definite crowd pleaser.

Erik studied classical guitar at Keene State, and has taught the instrument at Exeter Music and the Leddy Center. He has also worked the theater pit band circuit, playing guitar for shows like Jesus Christ Superstar, Rocky Horror, Godspell, Man of La Mancha and Grease.

Michelle’s signature solo performance is her Patsy Cline Tribute which she performs around the state. It is her rendition of “Crazy” that helped Michelle make it to the stage of Miss America in 1997, where she represented the State of NH.

In an article included in a 2001 issue of HippoPress, the writer states, “Michelle is gifted with a superb set of alto vocal chords and a pair of lungs to match. She has the ability to penetrate the ears and go directly to the emotions of every listener”

Gearing up for a great season at Kiki's and The Gravity Tavern!

We've been fortunate enough to have some outstanding local music play at Gravity and we're gearing up for a great season. Stay tuned for more announcements as the calendar gets finalized!
