SIRSY; with special guest Christine Havrilla

Events

June 28, 2024
8:30 pm

SIRSY is a rock and soul duo with lots of pop sensibility and just the right amount of sass. The Boston Globe sums it up, “Little band. Big Sound.” Although the only thing “little” about Sirsy is that there’s just two of them. The rest is bigger than a T-Rex. Close your eyes and listen to the power and heart in their music and you’ll swear there’s more than two people on stage. It’s crank up the volume, sing along at the top of your lungs music — even when the ballads kick in. Plus, “Their clever, smart songs have more hooks than a tacklebox.” (Times Union).

SIRSY is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Melanie (Mel) Krahmer, who is described as “one of the most powerful & flexible voices you’ll ever hear.” (Times Union). Aftertaste Magazine said, “Bursting and belting out emotion and substance, she can be the queen of ‘in the groove’ rocking or be simple and delicate.” Still, there is more to Mel than her soul-inspired vocals: she also plays a full drum kit while standing up (she’s been featured in Modern Drummer Magazine and is officially endorsed by Paiste Cymbals and Vater Percussion). At their live shows, Mel also plays bass parts with a drum stick (on a keyboard mounted on her drums). She even throws in an occasional flute solo, too.

Guitarist Rich Libutti plays a well-loved and road-worn Rickenbacker through a pedal board full of vintage effects. “The guitar player is flawless and raw. Clean enough to be enjoyed, and just edgy enough to make you grin.” (SXSW Music Blog, Austin TX). Live, Rich also plays bass on a keyboard with his feet.
