Blasting out of the woodsy confines of the Berkshires like a love slug from the gun of life is Woody & the Rebel Alliance, a musical revelation that isn’t afraid to cull the tedious excuses of modern day music and spark a cultural transformation. With deep influences in reggae and improvisational jam rock, it is safe to say that The Reb help carry the revolution to the stage and, ultimately, to the fans. During their live performance you can feel an increasing essence of family which compels you to reach a hand out to a troubled stranger. But their music goes beyond lyrics and notes, beyond the love of kin and kith, beyond the cozy limits of a fixed description. It is a universal blueprint for society as a whole. As a band sheathed in unending positivity, they’re armed with an ardor that is able to form a permanent wrinkle in the status quo. Consider them the ambassadors of Ragetown, set to slay the dark lords of demoralization and malevolence with their tight grooves and valuable rhetoric. ~Marc Lovely


rice - an American Band was born in the summer of 2014 as a few friends got together to jam and liked the results. A mutual admiration society developed and a love of performing music together was created. Pretty quickly the band was gigging out at clubs and festivals and the rice was cooking. The sound that creates: true American rock and roll.


Formed in the summer of 2015, the ABombs are a high energy rock and roll band from Western MA. Founding members Al Lucas (vx, bass), Jeff Dudziak (vx, guitar), along with Kade Parkin (drums) and Parker McQueeney (keys) have been playing shows throughout New England since 2015 together. With original twists to classic rock and original mixes, they’ll keep you up and dancing the whole show. The band has been a staple at StrangeCreek and Wormtown at Camp Keewanee since 2015.


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.
