The Austin Torpedoes are a Boston area band who perform what its members like to call "good ol' American music." Their unique sound combines elements of many American musical styles such as blues, jazz, country, western swing, and rockabilly. In its unique way, the band interprets songs by a wide range of artists including: Duke Ellington, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, and Chuck Berry.
The core members of the band, Nicky Vegas, lead vocals and guitar, Don Barthelemy, drums and percussion, and Gary Secondino, bass guitar, have been playing together for almost twenty years. The band found its missing ingredient in the guise of Seitu whose Hawaiian steel guitar further defined the band's sound. Audiences all over New England have enjoyed the band's combination of smooth vocals, distinctive steel guitar sound, and swinging rhythms. The Torpedoes unique sound will lift up your spirits and make you move your feet. There's nothing like...The Austin Torpedoes!
As always, with generous support from local businesses, the Concert Series is free to the public.
