October 01, 2016 at The Hearing Room in Lowell, MA.
The members of Merrimack Bend have been playing their instruments for most of their adult lives (or more).
Dan Sancomb and Les Canney joined forces in early 2010 by way of a Craiglist ad placed by Les looking for someone interested in acoustic jamming.
They rehearsed at least once a week, working up tunes by bands like The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton. In early 2012, they decided to broaden their sound by adding a percussionist.
Again Craiglist put them in touch with a like-minded soul, Dan Trainor.
They bring a uncommon energy to the stage and have a deep, shared respect for the music they play.
They have amassed a deep repertoire and have added a bunch of really original originals over their 4 years of playing together.
They recently rounded out there sound with the addition of Josh Smith on bass guitar.
They are now concentrating on recording and giging around the Merrimack Valley.
