July 18th- Nicole Murphy
Murphy has come a long way in a short time. Though she played in her father’s Vermont-based band as a teenager before getting married and moving to New Hampshire, Knox Murphy had for years traveled back to the Green Mountain State to play with her father before family and work obligations took priority. Once she picked up the guitar again, however, all the passion of her youth came flooding back. Performing in public, soon she was strumming and singing with other like-minded individuals at Henderson’s Pickin’ Parlor in Candia.
July 25th- Granite Planet
Granite Planet is a retro cover band featuring music from the 60’s to today, with a focus on the 80’s. Their diverse playlist includes rock, pop, dance/disco, today’s country & a bit of blues. Most of their songs are upbeat and high energy – you’ll want to get up and dance! While the majority of their covers are true to the originals we all know and love, a few are based on more recent versions. The addition of various unique covers helps to make GRANITE PLANET stand out among run-of-the-mill cover bands.
