A special event featuring some talented musicians very close to The Shad’s heart is taking place Friday night.
From the Playhouse on Park:
“Feel the beat! For one night only on Friday, February 3rd, 2012, Playhouse on Park welcomes world rhythm band, Entrain, to its stage.
Patrons may remember the band from their popular performance in Blue Back Square in June 2011. Now after complications due to Storm Alfred in November, the theater is proud to welcome them back to West Hartford to bring you their eclectic blend of infectious world rhythms and catchy melodies. Honored with a “Boston Music Award” for Best Live Act, the concert features Entrain’s renowned horn section and drums as well as an exclusive preview at the band’s new multimedia show, “Drums for Peace.” In addition, after the show the audience is invited to join the band in their lively drum circle so feel free to bring your own, or we’ll share ours in this rare treat!”
As for Entrain:

“Entrain . . . merges funk, rock, reggae, swamp, and worldbeat rhythm into a sweaty good time . . .” — Boston Herald
“Entrain is a band on the verge of happening big!” — Bruce Warren, Program Director, WXPN
