The Towne Crier’s New Year’s Eve Celebration featuring Chris O’Leary Band & Dan Brother Band


Come ring in 2023 with us and enjoy great food and powerhouse performances by two of the finest blues-rock bands in the region!

Chris O’Leary’s musical background includes duties as lead singer and front man for Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy Award winner Levon Helm’s band, The Barnburners. During the 6 years that Chris and Levon played together they toured across the US and Canada lighting up stages everywhere they went. Chris has appeared on stage with: Legendary Rolling Stones sideman Bobby Keys, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Vivino, Jeff Healy, Steely Dan, Albert Lee, Dave Edmunds, Dave Maxwell and the great James Cotton to name just a few. Chris has also recorded with Bill Perry and Hubert Sumlin, among others.

The Chris O’Leary Band’s honors include the 2011 Best New Artist Debut CD Blues Blast Award; they were also nominated for best new artist debut at the 2011 American Blues Music Awards. Their Live At Blues Now also garnered them a Blues Blast Award nomination. The latest critically acclaimed release “7 Minutes Late” reached #1 on the RMR National Blues chart and was nominated for Best Contemporary Album for the 2019 Blues Blast Awards.

Dan Brother began his guitar-playing and singing career under the tutelage of such master bluesmen as Bill Perry, Popa Chubby, Murali Coryell and Little Sammy Davis, among others. Since his teens, Dan Brother has been performing in venerable blues clubs throughout the region. Having shared the stage with mentors like his, it’s no wonder Dan picked up a little of everything along the way – from protest-era psychedelia to straight-up blues; classic era soul to southern rock and Texas twang.

Having turned all that early on-stage learning into a sound all his own, Dan’s high-energy performances are drawing fans new and old to an increasing number of gigs and venues every month. Dan’s fans expect a mix of blues, soul, rock & roll, and the band accommodates, with sets that go from low-down monstrous slow blues to booty-grooving ecstatic funk.

Our New Year’s Eve Special Chef’s New Years Menu includes four courses with vegetarian and vegan options, as well as delectable desserts created by our renowned Pastry Chef Mary Ciganer.
