March 7, 2015: WMFO’s DJ Easy Ed Presents Sean Coleman and the Quasars, The Bloodshots, The Red Pennys--Rockabilly and Rock ‘n’ Roll at the Midway!

One night only! Sean Coleman—lead singer of legendary Boston bands The Bourbonaires and The Swinedells—brings his new band, The Quasars, in from NYC for a wild night of rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll. Since their 2014 Boston appearances (at the Midway, and opening for Imelda May at the Paradise) the band has toured far and wide, celebrating the release of their new “I’m a Man” EP. They’ll be playing the Viva Las Vegas festival this spring and will soon record a full-length release for Wild Records (Hollywood, CA). Don’t miss what could be your last opportunity to see this band at a small venue.

Little Lesley and the Bloodshots (NYC) gave a standout performance at the 2013 New England Shake-Up and nearly blew the roof off the Midway last year with their blend of rockabilly and hard-driving rock ‘n’ roll. We’re thrilled to have them back in Boston for this special event!

The Red Pennys, from Providence, are a traditional rockabilly/honk tonk trio that’ll have you up and moving from the get go! Whether playing originals or covers, these guys--Gregg Figliozzi (guitar and vocals), Russ Dawley (drums and vocals), Bob MacDonald (upright bass)—really do it right!

DJ Easy Ed is the man behind “Easy Ed’s Variety Hour” on WMFO in Medford, MA. He spins rockabilly, hillbilly, and ‘50s and early ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll and R&B, specializing in dance-friendly 45s for folks who love to move their feet.
