Originally founded in 1976 as a folk duo by Pelham natives Chris Brown and Joe Summo, BOOKENDS with their eclectic mix of original compositions and interesting covers quickly became one of the most sought after bands on the local college circuit. As their popularity grew, so did the band into a more traditional rock band instrumentation, bass, drums and keyboards — THE BOOKENDS BAND.
Though the size of the band and venues grew, they never lost sight of their formula for success. A Bookends show evokes a full range of emotions. Four uniquely gifted lead vocalists allowing for coverage of a wide range of music from the Classic era. The song list is filled with surprises.
In its present form, The Bookends Band consists of Chris Brown on acoustic guitar, Lou Bellofatto on keyboards, Doc Alcott on bass, Tony Summo on electric guitar, Mike Marble on drums, and saxophonist, Jim Clark.
So it’s time to celebrate a run, the likes of which only a handful of bands can boast — 40 years and still at the top of their game. Still playing, still growing, and still having fun.
For this special 40th Anniversary show Bookends co-founder Joe Summo will be joining the band for a rare guest appearance.
