Stephen Clair & Bryan Thomas – Nov. 15 at 8:pm

If you spent any time at all in the 90s songwriter scene in Albany NY, then you know the names of Stephen Clair and Bryan Thomas.
Clair eventually lit out from downtown for the hills of Provence; the crime of Oakland; and the badlands of Brooklyn (ere it was cool); before landing in Beacon NY, just around the bend from Pete Seeger.
Thomas, like Clair, became a family man along the way, but never lost sight of his peculiar vision, blurring funk, rock, theatre and smarts into an ingenious, entirely unique whole.
On Saturday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m. the two men join forces for a very special night of music at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre, and no one has to drive to New York City (where the two frequently bumped into each other at one West Village club or another) to see it happen.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. Friday, November 15 performance are $13 in advance; $15 at the door and are available by phone at 518.438.5503, online at www.steamer10theatre.org; and at the box office, 500 Western Avenue, Albany.
Clair, who Performing Songwriter Magazine calls, “the kind of citified troubadour that the roots songwriting world needs these days,” will perform with his band, The Millionaires. His latest album, Love Makes Us Weird, is a fury of brilliant songs and hot guitar playing. It’s the latest in a long line of releases that found the strummer the darling of everyone from hip NYC radio stations to the hill town haunts of Austin, TX.
Clair has become a major force on the Beacon music scene, not only as a musician, but as a promoter and the founder of the burgeoning Beacon Music Factory.
The Millionaires includes Todd Giudice on drums and Christopher Peifer on bass.
Thomas will perform solo to beat the band. Literally. It’s an understatement to call Thomas (who has been secretly brewing up a batch of new songs to follow his highly-praised Smash to Pieces e.p.) a one-man music machine.

We are also excited to be joining with New Orleans bassed cellist and vocalist, Monica McIntyre, this November for a series of performances. Monica seamlessly blends Blues, Soul, Classical, Jazz, Reggae and Middle Eastern sounds with the unique cello techniques of slapping, plucking and strumming, into an unforgettable musical landscape. We have be sharing performances with Monica McIntyre for over 10 years, beginning when Taina and Monica were both based in Philadelphia. This August, we had the honor to have Monica join us for a joint performance at our Philadelphia album release with Taina Asili y la Banda Rebelde. In November, Monica will be joining us for a series of performances, beginning on Nov. 21st at The Steamer 10 Theater.
