The Outerspace Band was formed in 1968 by Dave Robinson, Compton Maddux, Eliot Osborn, John Moses, and Klon Koehler. All five members have performed together every year since then, with first drummer Chief Kubicek through 1997, followed by Michael Wiskey. Their songs reflect experiences shared as teenagers to the present day: from college dorms to tents alongside I-84, from a Wendell commune to NYC apartments, the Warwick Inn to the White House, from no cares to day cares, from the last moon landing to the next.

The majority of Outerspace songs are written by Dave, Compton, Eliot and John, spanning a wide variety of styles influenced by the many national artists they’ve opened for: Allen Toussaint, BB King, Waylon Jennings, Willie Dixon, Dr. John, Jefferson Starship and NRBQ, to name a few.

For this long-awaited return to the Upper Valley, Outerspace has chosen The Shea Theater over their usual venues and festival sites. The Shea has it all: a true proscenium theater with great in house production, a lobby bar with BBC beer on tap, comfortable seats and (of course) a dance floor. Spend an evening with Outerspace and see where their music takes you.


The Shea provides performance space for a variety of attractions designed to appeal to the widest range of tastes. Musical offerings include folk, pop, rock, swing, jazz, country and traditional. Theatrical productions encompass musical comedy, drama, comedy, and political satire. In addition, audiences can take advantage of magic shows, children's shows and silent film revivals.

The Shea, with the help of a wonderful corps of volunteers, has been attracting a growing audience and as a result is bringing people into Turners Falls from an ever larger geographical area. This growth has put the Shea on a firmer financial footing, providing the basis for expectations of an even more exciting future for this vital community asset.
