Where Tequila Talks and Hope Walks

This past Friday night (nov. 14) I was fortunate enough to catch the sold out Brett Dennen show at Rams Head On Stage. Touring in support of his newest release “Hope for the Hopeless”, this Rolling Stone rated ‘Artist to Watch’ held his idealistic values close, while warming the croud with his sweet sound and endearing personality. A personality warmed by a few shots of Tequila. When offered a Fordham draft from one of the audience members, Dennen said “I can’t mix that stuff, man! I’m still recovering from election night.” But what he can mix harmoniously are sounds that echo Paul Simon, James Taylor, and Cat Stevens with lush lyrics that are all his own. When it comes to backing up those intensely personal and political lyrics, Dennen puts his time and your money where his mouth is. For each stop along the tour, a local non-profit organization is given the opportunity to inform the audience of their cause. For the Rams Head On Stage show, the Maryland Food Bank collected canned food items and cash donations. From those who donated, a winner was picked at random to receive a signed CD and a personal shout out and song request from Brett just before the set’s finish. In summary, a charming Friday night with a unique story teller in one of the area’s most intimate venues.
