Sierra Harger Graduation Party
4/26/13 The Score landed in Berlin! Connecticut. The house was jumping at Stryker's Cafe as The Score unleashed three blistering sets of classic party rock! The floor was really moving during the second set with some bumpin' and grindin' during The guys from Glastonbury injected a new song to the set, Renegade by Styx which turned out to be another crowd pleaser and Give a Little Bit, which Blodge debuted on the 12 string! The band also fufilled requests, and brought back No Matter What, Locomotive Breath, Fins and Friend of the Devil with Dave Gager supplying a Jerry inspired solo. Matt went airborne during the Middle, to the delight of the patrons, and also kicked out the jams on several songs on guitar, reaching back into the vault for Hey Jelousy, Paranoid and The Last Time. Blodge put out a facemelting solo during Sweet Emotion that wowed the crowd, and Jerome had the patrons mesmerized all night long. We would like to thank our fans for supporting us at Strykers! Hope to see you at the next gig!
3/23/13 The Score lands at Bradley! Callbacks say it all, and The Score rocked out for the SFES fundraiser for Suffield schools for the fifth straight year. This was a formal affair that generates a large sum of money for the Suffield Public Schools and The Score was proud to be a part of their big night! The boys from Glastonbury started the night off strong with a flurry of danceable tunes that included a throbbing version of Superstition, the bass was so powerful that to everyone's dismay, the power mixer actually bounced off the stage and hit the floor! Somehow, we didn't lose our sound and we quickly recovered to energize the crowd with a steady supply of Motown and classic rock. The dance floor was on fire during Ain't Too Proud to Beg, Play That Funky Music and Brick House as the revelry continued deep into the night. The members of the Score are big believers in education since we are teachers by day and rock stars on alternating weekends, so we thank the SFES for choosing us again, and we hope to be back next year. If you have a big corporate event that needs quality musical entertainment, check out The Score!
3/9/2013 After Snowmaggedon took our February show off the books at Stryker's, The Score was beyond ready to to rock! But Mother Nature struck again with another freak storm, and while this one unfortunately slowed attendance, the boys from Glastonbury jammed out to two powerful sets for the stalwarts at the Berlin Bar. It was an intimate affair that night, and the band made a connection to the patrons, Alex Pelissari lended his powerful pipes to help us fufill a request for AC/DC' s You Shook Me All Night Long. Jerome consistently wowed the place with his vocals and Dave Blodgett scorched his way through the solos on Hold on Loosely, and traded off with Tom on Johnny B. Goode. Dave Gager shined on a jangly version of Franklin's Tower and Walter had the beat, guiding us through the storm. Matt, had the bass thumping and while playing guitar, released the beast on Shook Me as well as on a fiery Dani California and a powerful offering of Wanted Dead or Alive. If you missed the show, and it is likely that you did, you get another chance on April 26th! Strykers is a full service pub with great wait staff and they have delicious food- try the quesadillas, you will love them! See you there!
1/4/2012 The Score rocks out Stryker's in Berlin! The boys from Glastonbury were hot on the trail of a new venue to hang their hats on and it looks like they have found their new favorite bar! It was a night of powerful rock and roll with all the trimmings at the small but mighty bar and cafe- the Score rocked out from 9 until well after 1 AM churning out plenty of tunes including a smoking version of Reeling in the Years and the crowd stayed late and really dug Fat Bottom Girls and You Really Got Me. Blodge and Tom were wailing, Jerome crooned his way through I'm Your's and Walter put the solid backbeat throughout the night. Matt blasted through the solo for Rock and Roll All Night, and Dave Gager shined on Bertha and by request, Scarlet Begonias. We had the guest performers in the house too! Gayle D'Abbate Hess joined the band on bass and vocals spelling Matt and Jeremy on Summer of '69 and a sizzling version of Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll as well as playing bass only on Mustang Sally. As an encore, we had the Sean Lord from Reckless Abandon and the Johnson Street Band join us on lead guitar for Wanted Dead or Alive! This show was more than a party at a great bar- if you missed it, don't worry we are back at Strykers Cafe on February 8th! Be there or be square!
12/7/2012 The Party was on with The Score! The Polaris Center had their annual holiday party in East Hartford packing the Veteran's Memorial Clubhouse for a night of great food, awesome music and merriment! The boys from Glastonbury played as a five piece tonight as Dave Gager was enjoying "business meetings" in Vegas. The band debuted several new tunes for the revelers including Steely Dan's Reeling in the Years, Fat Bottom Girls and Billy Joel's hit song, Big Shot. Matt broke out his Ovation 12 string and strummed out Brown Eyed Girl and a debuted hot version of Wanted Dead or Alive. Dave and Tom performed extended smoking solos during Superstition and the crowd was moving during I Saw Her Standing There. The band brought back Home by Michael Buble, which made for a nice slow dance opportunity and even put down a requested Reggaeton beat which led to an improvised a jam as the partygoers danced the night away. If you have a private party that needs some classic party rock and a little more- book The Score!
10/13/2012 The Score grabs the reins and jams out for The Wildfire Equine Rescue Farm! The boys from Glastonbury rocked out 2 sets of classic party rock for Wildfire as they had their Equine Rescue fundraiser at Mt. Carmel in Enfield. The band brought back some old favorites including Sitting by the Dock of the Bay and recalled some horse themed tunes like Midnight Rider and a funky version of Black Horse and the Cherry Tree. The band had a great time playing for the crowd and enjoyed some amazing pasta and meatballs! Special thanks to the kids at the event who helped us out on tambourine and cowbell. We were happy to help save the horses! If you have a horse that needs rescue, Wildfire in East Granby is there to help, and if you need a band that rocks, well, you know the Score!
6/8/2012 The Score invaded East Hartford! The Score debuted at the Final Score Bar in the Ramada Inn and put together a rocking three sets of classic party tunes. The band brought back a few including a haunting Can't You See, a cranking version of She Sells Sanctuary, Surrender with Matt on the guitar, and in the third set - a smooth offering of Angel of Harlem. The boys from Glastonbury had the floor moving during the second set as they worked the crowd. Blodge's friend, Eric joined us for a smoking version of Johnny B. Goode, trading off solos that thrilled the patrons. In the third set, they added a "red hot" version of Dani California and had Nikki join the band for a sizzling reprise of Superstition. The Score had a blast at the Final Score- hope to see you at a show soon!
6/2/2012 The Relay for Life was abuzz with the sweet sounds of The Score! For the second year in a row, the boys from Glastonbury cranked out the tunes for Relayers in West Hartford, as they did laps at Northwest Catholic against cancer. This was a show in peril, as Matt plowed through a recent concussion and slightly broken face and delayed an ER trip! Plus the uncertain weather was a factor- the skies parted for the band just before they donned the stage and pumped out 75 minutes of solid entertainment! We brought back some old songs like a tight version of Calling All Angels, and the Score-original Ray of Hope, celebrated a Birthday, Beatles style and had some tiny tamborine players on Mustang Sally! Matt crushed through Living After Midnight and Rock and Roll All Night on his late brother Chris' Charvel guitar, dedicating those songs to him and his long battle against brain cancer. Cancer never stops, so neither did the Relayers and neither did The Score! The Score was honored to have the opportunity to perform at the Relay and would like to congratulate them on exceeding their fundrasing target. We were glad to help!
5/4/2012 Knowledge is power and The Score flexed their musical muscle for the Connecticut Education Association in Cromwell for the post-vote party! This was the third year in a row for the scholars from Glastonbury, and the fourth time the band supported Connecticut educators with rocking tunes. As voters meandered into the room, decompressing from a long night of policy and information, the band started relaxed with some improptu music, and slowly revved up the pace. The floor was moving with some old school rock and roll and Motown, and then shifted into overdrive with some solid 80's tunes. The band noticed a lull and quickly ignited a new fire with a driving version of The Red Hot Chili Peppers' Dani California; this brought a horde of younger teachers onto the floor and the party really kicked into high gear! In the end, there was a game of spin the bottle, someone was breakdancing and doing "the worm" and we had a conga line going as the band crashed through three solid hours straight and left them screaming for more! The Score loves teachers because we ARE teachers! Thanks to the CEA for having us again- we had a blast! And... if you are reading this-- thank a teacher!
3/30/2012 Call backs say it all! And for the fourth time, The Score rocked out for the SFES Auction and Gala benefiting the Suffield Public Schools. This time the big event was at the Sheraton at Bradley Airport, and after several hours of heavy bidding on cruises, wine packages and guitars signed by the Rolling Stones, the boys from Glastonbury took off sending the night into a bevy of rockin' dance tunes. The band had two new songs unveiled for the event, both to great response: The Billy Joel classic, Only the Good Die Young and a raunchy version of Bob Seger's Fire Down Below. Both songs had the floor cookin', as did most of the Motown and classic rock offerings! At the end of the night, the boisterous crowd were screaming for more and the band did not disappoint with a scorching Rock and Roll All Night to end the evening. We learned a lot from Suffield Public Schools- They know how to ROCK! This was a huge affair that raised a lot of money for an important cause, and The Score had as much fun as the patrons! We hope to see you all next year!
2/10/2012 The Score rocked out for the huge gala event for My Sister's Place at the Hartford Marriott and Convention Center! It was a big night for the fundraiser, as My Sister's Place had a huge amount of biddable goodies, amazing food, desserts and drink, as well as great tunes powered by The Score! The boys from Glastonbury jammed popular hits from the 50's to today for a solid set that rocked for just over 100 minutes. The crowd really got into Superstition, I Saw Her Standing There and Jailhouse Rock, dancing off the the delicious dinner with the band. Unfortunately, the night had to end- the band was just warming up! The Score would like to thank the great people from My Sister's Place for having us at their important event, and we would like to thank them for the great work they do in the community! If you have a private party that needs an awesome classic party rock band, book The Score!
12/9/2011 Ho Ho Hottt! Tis the season and The Score spread the good cheer in South Windsor at Red's Tavern inside Nomads Adventure Quest! The festivities were in full swing as the boys from Glastonbury again cranked out three scorching sets to another large crowd of merry makers, including our good friends and collegues from East Hartford Middle School, which celebrated their holiday party at the bar! The band added the heartfelt Barenaked Ladies' tune Light Up My Room to the setlist, and brought back a lot of songs for this festive occasion, the most notable would be Jerome in a Santa Hat, belting out our Springsteenesque version of Santa Claus is Comin' to Town! The band also reached back and rocked out blistering versions of Pinball Wizard and She Sells Sanctuary, did a mojo filled offering of Mary Jane's Last Dance by request, and revamped Locomotive Breath, this time with Matt on the guitar. It wouldn't be a Score show without guest stars of course, and this show had several- Chris jumped in on drums for three songs, giving a rock solid backbeat for Play That Funky Music, which featured some powerful tradeoff soloing by Blodge and Tom. Ryan Marky was thrown the mic in mid-medley of Jailhouse Rock and Hound Dog, Alex Pelissari lent his pipes for a metallic Living After Midnight and Katie Pelissari joined in during I Saw Her Standing There. The dance floor was HOT and naughty during sets two and three as the party was cranked up until well after 11. With the floor still packed, the band was called back for an encore of The Middle, which of course brought the house down and left them wanting more! This was one that you shouldn't have missed, everyone had a blast! When are we returning to Red's, we are not sure. If YOU want us back let THEM know! The Score wishes everyone Happy Holidays, and we hope to see you soon!
