About the Artist:
Jocelyn Hesse is thrilled to be a part of this wonderful series.  While this is her first solo show, she is no stranger to cabaret.  She is a proud veteran of all five of the Footlight Club’s Cabar7a productions.  Jocelyn has also appeared on stage in musical theater productions in JP and around the greater Boston area over the last dozen years.  Favorite roles include: Madeline True in “The Wild Party” and Sour Kangaroo in “Seussical” (Footlight Club), Mimi in “A New Brain” and Angel City Four in “City of Angels” (Longwood Players), Miss Hannigan in “Annie” (Riverside Theater), and Mama Morton in “Chicago” (Encore Theater).  When not performing on stage, Jocelyn is fortunate to work as a pediatric occupational therapist, in the early childhood program of the Brookline Public Schools.

About the Artist:
Since moving from Nashville to New England in late summer 2011, Boston folk songstress Annalise Emerick has demonstrated her aptness to awaken reminiscence in the minds of her listeners with just a few simple words. Worldly and wise after years of traveling, this is a conceivable notion, for in many ways the singer is a gypsy — always restlessly exploring the notion of home musically, emotionally and geographically. She’s claimed a scattering of cities as musical muses, growing up in Austin and Seattle before studying music at Belmont University in Nashville, where she later recorded her first album with producer Brad Hill at Hill Studios.

with special guests Eye Witness

Saturday, July 13th, Doors open at 8 PM/ Performance begins at 9 PM

About the Bands:
In a JP basement in Summer 2011, Molly and Liz mobilized their first-grade classmate Jen and their Ladies Rock Camp bandmate Sally to play music together. And Seamstress’s 90s raw quirky-style sound was born. The band has played at the Middle East Upstairs, Midway, Radio, PA’s Lounge and elsewhere. Their 3-song EP, Sweaterhead, is available for downloading at

EYE WITNESS – is the indie-folk duo of Milo and Rainy. They hail from West Boylston, MA and are frequenters of the music scene in Worcester MA and parts beyond. They have stories to tell.

EW started life as a three-piece rock band. Although a drummer by trade, Rainy is a multi-instrument maven, taking up bass duties in that incarnation of the band; this foreshadowed the band’s eventual foray into a wider range of musical expression. Milo was and still is on guitar and lead vocals, as well as the principal songwriter. EW had their first show on March 1st 2007 and have continued to be a staple of the local scene.

About the Band:
Liz and Owen started playing covers together in 2012 as members  of the band Who Wants Cake? Tonight is the debut of their acoustic duo, I See Orion. In addition to current popular dance tunes, indie rock and Americana gems, you can expect to hear the music you learned to roller skate to, the hip-hop jams you busted a move to, the rock songs that made you decide to play guitar, chick folk rock songs from your first year at college, and the very songs you were listening to in 1991 when you told your parents that New Kids on the Block were the next Beatles. How embarrassing.
