Pete Francis of Dispatch…..Dragon Crest Collective at Stephen Talkhouse
June 12, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$30
The latest project from Pete Francis, Dragon Crest Collective, is a homespun, collaboration-fueled foray into the most groove-heavy territory the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has ever explored.
Born in Francis’s self-built home studio in Connecticut, the band’s debut album Volume 1 finds the Dispatch co-founder teaming up with Danny “dbone” Golden (keyboards, drum programming), Paul Maddison (guitar, bass), and Kenny Shaw (drums) to create a joyfully hip-hop-inspired take on alt-rock.
“In all my years of making music, one of my favorite things is when a concert feels like a party,” says Francis, who formed Dispatch in 1995 and fast saw the indie act gain a massive worldwide following. “I wanted to make this record feel like a party too, lighthearted and fun and rockin’ even though it’s got its serious moments.”
