Event Description
Jesse Dee

Boston's Jesse Dee is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing soul man-a modern day trailblazer inspired by the old school. Dee's passion is exploring and updating soul music for contemporary audiences. With his warm and honest sound, his instantly memorable melodies and positive, slice-of-life lyrics (evoking the heyday of the Brill Building songwriters), he accomplishes just that. His inventive, hook-filled songs are delivered with buoyant, youthful exuberance.

Live, he always brings down the house, and keeps his ever-growing fan base coming back for more. His band lays down driving, infectious grooves while Dee's expressive vocals put him in a class by himself. On the strength of his fervent live shows, Dee plays to packed clubs in New England and has toured across Europe, earning new fans at every gig.

The "Boston Herald" declares, "Dee has an explosive voice. He possesses a powerful, raspy tenor and an uncanny phrasing ability that can't be taught."
Dee attended Massachusetts College Of Art And Design, studying illustration, performance, production, mixed-media and composition. He sang with the ten-piece ensemble Decifunk, and toured up and down the East Coast. In the early 2000's he even lent his voice to rock 'n' roll band The Dirty Whites before starting his own group. He released his first album, "Bittersweet Batch," in 2008, and heads immediately began turning. The "New York Daily News" awarded the CD a rare four-star review, saying, "I am blown away by what's coming out of my speakers...remarkable...there isn't a bad song to be found...upbeat and soulful."

The success of the CD allowed Dee and his band to travel beyond Boston, making new converts in Washington, DC, New York, Philadelphia, Nashville, and Chicago. He first toured the Netherlands, the UK and Italy in 2009 before heading back again the following two years, this time adding Ireland, Belgium, Germany, France and Spain to his itinerary. Dee has opened for soul greats Al Green, Solomon Burke, Etta James, Bettye LaVette (2011 AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival favorite), and blues rockers Los Lobos (2010 AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival) and the J. Geils Band, and has shared stages many times with fellow soul singer James Hunter.

Gates open at 6:30 pm, and Jesse Dee plays at 8:00.

Tickets are $12 in advance (plus fees), or $15 day of show.
