Since 1995, THE JOINT CHIEFS have been entertaining audiences in the Northeast with their group's distinctive vocal & instrumental arrangements. Comprised of singer/guitarist ELIOT OSBORN, singer/mandolin/accordionist LOUISE LINDENMEYR, singer/bassist GEORGE POTTS, and singer/percussionist DIANA HEROLD, the group has headlined at Connecticut's INFINITY HALL as well as an opening act for the likes of Judy Collins, Rodney Crowell and Eliza Gilkyson.  

 

They specialize in their own original material - and "great songs...ones that are so well written that they can transcend the style in which they were originally conceived".  You may hear a funk tune by the late great Prince Nelson performed as a swing tune, a Knopfler-esque toe-tapper that imagines the life of Johnny B Good in the twilight of his career, or a Columbian Cumbia about a pair of mating dragonflies.

 

Their music is always playful and powerfully rhythmic, with strong vocals and arrangements ... a unique musical style that Michael Eck of Albany, NY's WAMC called "tight harmonies and loose attitude" - a descriptive phrase that over the years has remained the group's ongoing mantra.

 

General Admission $20 - Your ticket purchase will help raise funds for the support of the Hall, renovations, and the organization’s mission to preserve Dewey Memorial Hall as a precious resource for the community.
