The Coffee House features Pat Kenneally & Rick Cooper on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016.
Pat and Rick offer up seriously wicked cool infectious camaraderie and good humor. In a word, FUN! They grew up less than a mile apart in the burbs north of Boston in the era of the Everlys and Elvis. Delivering an entertaining mix of folk-rock, country, and blues to appreciative and enthusiastic audiences from Cambridge to Keene to Winnipesaukee, they have become an integral part of the vibrant local music scene.
On stage, Cooper & Kenneally pump out an assortment of early rock and roll covers and ‘The Good’ country (Jimmie Rodgers/Willie Nelson) that we know and love, all stamped with their unique brand. Their original folk-pop, a totally different beast, can range from poignant to humorous to rockin’. The vocal harmonies, blend of guitar/ukulele and tune selection are a lot of fun to listen to. Wonderfully talented musicians who understand what entertaining a crowd is all about,
Cooper & Kenneally have opened for such groups as Ernie and The Automatics, Ronnie Earl, and David Buskin & Robin Batteau. Their “Off Our Rockers” CD (available on iTunes) has provided the sound track for many a happy road trip. They are currently working on their second album.
Doors open at 6:30 pm and all are welcome to sit, relax, meet and mingle. Performers (music, poetry, spoken word) are encouraged to sign up for one of the 15-minute slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Performances start at 7:00.
It is our goal to create a wholesome relaxing atmosphere for people to gather, listen and perform music, poetry and the spoken word. Our stage is set for you to perform in front of a supportive audience. A $5 donation is suggested (students may bring 2 cans of food as their donation, to help support the local St. Vincent De Paul food pantry).
Coffee, tea, water, soda, and juices are available, as well as popcorn and a variety of yummy baked goods from our kitchen. As always, there is no charge for snacks.
