SHK Music Presents: Royer's One Man Band and Wooden Leg at Boston Harbor Distillery Local Virtuosos Eric Royer and Jimmy Ryan join for one amazing night with Royer's One Man Band and Wooden Leg! more info Friday, October 14, 2022 8:00 PM Boston Harbor Distillery Boston, MA
Royer's One Man Band - Eric Royer has been performing and recording as his unique and widely acclaimed one man band for over 25 years. During the Covid-19 shutdown time Royer decided to add drums to his setup, something he always wanted to but never had time to get working. Now in addition to his self-made guitar machine, he is playing a drum kit.
Wooden Leg is Jimmy Ryan (Mandolin & Vocals), Mickey Bones (Drums), Brian Dunton (Bass(, Russell Chudnofsky (Guitar), and Joe Kessler (Fiddle).
"What do you get when you combine a crooning bluegrass mandolin master, a veteran bassist, a fiddler who plays through fuzz boxes and wah-wah pedals, sounding more like Jimi Hendrix than Papa John Creach, and a big band swing drummer who inexplicably feels moved to pound the skins harder than John Bonham on a bender? Do you call it country, folk, bluegrass, rock ‘n’ roll, or maybe just a freak of nature? Just call it Wooden Leg, and give the group room to do its thing. It’s much safer that way." -David Wildman, Boston Globe

Irish-born, Boston-based Bob Bradshaw has been exploring many facets of Americana music in the thirty years he’s lived in the States – from the Texas singer-songwriters he strives to emulate to the roots-rock he plays in bar bands any night of the week. He has lived in New York City and in San Francisco, where his rock band ‘Resident Aliens’ was very successful in the 90’s. He graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 2009, having mostly played in bluegrass ensembles there. Praised as a writer of “instant classics” by No Depression’s Frank Gutch jnr, and as a “master craftsman” by RnR Magazine’s David White, Bradshaw is presently working on his tenth album of original songs ‘The Art Of Feeling Blue’.
