Expect a musical tour of Barry Goudreau's storied career including hits from Boston, RTZ, Orion the Hunter in addition to original music from the new CD release.

Guitarist Barry Goudreau, formerly of Boston, recently announced the formation of his new band Barry Goudreau's Engine Room. The blues/rock outfit includes his former RTZ bandmates Brian Maes on lead vocals and keyboards, as well as Tim Archibald on bass. Both Maes and Archibald were members of Peter Wolf's House Party Five, playing on two of his records and touring the world extensively. The band is rounded out with "Old" Tony Depietro on drums and Mary Beth Maes, Terri O'Soro and Joanie Cicatelli on background vocals.

The CD covers the whole spectrum of blues and rock, from the stripped-down blues of "All Mine" to the all-out rock assault of "Need". A longtime friend of Goudreau's and legendary bluesman James Montgomery sits in on harp for "Layin' it Down (In Beantown)." The record was produced by Maes in his studio with Goudreau recording guitar tracks in his own home studio. "Brian was able to step up and fill the creative void left by Brad Delp's passing, I couldn't have done it without him" says Goudreau.

Special guest Charlie Farren (Balloon, Farrenheit, Joe Perry Project) kicks off the evening with an acoustic set of his own material.
