Amy McGovern’s Pick Three:

February 20, Moe (by Higher Ground) at the Paramount Theater in Rutland

Moe was recently inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame! With 20 years of touring experience and just as many albums under their belt, this quintet consists the talented Al Schnier, Chuck Garvey, Rob Derhak, Jim Loughlin and Vinnie Amico who all continue to push the standard for performance art. Doors 6:30pm. Show 7pm. Tickets $39 in advance and $44 day of the show.

February 15, Max Creek at Higher Ground in South Burlington

Max Creek is a multigenerational band with longevity in the Northeast. They mix everything from rock to reggae and more. You’ll find guitarist Scott Murawski, keyboardist Mark Mercier and bassist John Rider still playing strong since the band started in the mid-70s. Long time drummers Greg Vasso and Scott Allshouse both moved on from the group, opening the door for the drums and percussion team of Bill Carbone and Jamemurrell Stanley, neither of whom were alive when the band was founded. Doors 8pm. Show 8:30pm. Tickets $17 in advance and $20 day of the show.

March 26, Zach Deputy at Nectar's in Burlington

Zach Deputy celebrates his fourth album “Wash It In The Water” with a soulful new sound that fuses hip-hop, funk, and folky pop with the spirited rhythms of soca and calypso. Deputy plays every instrument on the album. It’s self-produced in spontaneous sessions that often took place in Deputy’s garage. It’s an eclectic sound of the times. Come listen for yourself! Show 9pm to 2am. Tickets $10 in advance and $15 day of the show.
