Welcome Johnny and his band to their first visit to Maynard. The Sanctuary is a perfect room for their sometimes soulful, sometimes raunchy take on a great smorgasbord classics — Chicago Blues, Rockabilly, Rock’n’Roll, Country, Swing, good old R&B, and a bit of Cajun flavored off beat stuff. Folks do like to hit the dance floor, from the first song to the last. Formed in 1991 and based in on Martha’s Vineyard, the band has released five CDs and performed around the world — as far as South Africa and Norway.

JOHNNY juggles a full life where he takes advantage of his many skills including stone masonry, fishing, antique dealing, farming. Somehow he manages to do all the gigs as well. He came to the Island in 1978, after soaking up Muddy Waters’ and Tom Waits’ shows as a teenager.

JEREMY BERLIN, the piano player has been with the band since the summer of ’93. He’s played duets with Bill Clinton and Carly Simon and toured the world with The Nina Simone Band. He’s not afraid of anything — and he plays it all. Jeremy’s right has plays the keyboard. His left hand plays the bass line, as the band has no bass player. (PS You’d never know.)

DELANIE PICKERING arrived on Martha’s Vineyard in her van at the age of 20, and for the first few months, didn’t tell anyone she played guitar. Now 22, she plays with everyone and joined the band in 2018. A powerhouse blues player, she has the tone and authenticity of a seasoned performer and sings that way too.

KEVIN MEDEIROSAl, originally from New Bedford, came to hear the band for many years as a young drummer learning his craft. When his turn came, he was ready, and his musical sensibility and attitude are a great addition. He and Delanie sling coffee by day and hit the stage hard together at night.

Sanctuary is super excited to be able to host Dwayne Haggins as they celebrate the launch of their new album, "China Ruby"

In only 3 years of writing & performing, the Framingham, MA native has covered a lot of ground. The Dwayne Haggins of 2016 wouldn't even have felt comfortable enough to call himself a songwriter. But after a sold-out album release show in 2018 at Amazing Things Arts Center, Dwayne and his band were swept up in a creative whirlwind faster than they could blink.

Fast forward to December, 2019. The band is releasing their second full length record, titled "China Ruby," comprised of all original songs. China Ruby brings together a highly dynamic community of artists, all holding unique styles and expertise. The original work is quite literally amplified by the collective voices of this talented network. "I've been extremely lucky to meet so many amazing people and musicians to this point, so I wanted as many of them as I could fit in, to be a part of this record."

Dwayne describes this project as a Rock 'n' Roll record, infused with gospel sound. Being largely influenced by artists such as Leon Russell and The Staples Singers, it was only a matter of time before Dwayne released a work like this. And on Sunday, December 8th, he'll be bringing the whole circus itself to Maynard, MA to show you exactly what it was like to make this record.

Opening for Dwayne will be Daniel Neihoff

Daniel Neihoff is an emerging Singer/Songwriter from Paducah, KY. He has been described as “one of the best storytelling songwriters in Nashville”. His music blends sensitive and articulate lyrics with effortless fingerpicking and powerful vocals. With a voice that is honest and passionate, Daniel holds nothing back every time he takes the stage.

In a short time he has built a reputation as a songwriter to watch. There is no doubt that he has a long career ahead of him.
