Skunk Sessions = Jam at its best. Brought to you by a Super-Group of musicians from the Salem Massachusetts area. Brandon Tarricone, Eric Reardon, Theo Brierley, and Derek Hayden are the forces behind this music. This is no cover band, but while they have a huge list of original material, they jam in and out of clutch covers throughout their varying shows, which takes audiences on a fresh musical integrating in songs they love. These gentleman perform in all different genres, hundreds of gigs a year, giving them a following and a platform to create their Jam/Rock/Roots/Blues music with their own creative distinction. Skunk’s large list of original material is often hailed by fans as being their favorite part of the show, but with over 150 songs (and growing) everyone can enjoy some familiar music with a fresh take by artists/bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, David Bowie, Phish, The Talking Heads, The Band, The Neville Brothers, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Dr. John, The Beatles, Crosby Stills and Nash and more. Skunk Sessions has one fully original album out (2020) and another two in the making (one live, one studio). Brandon Tarricone, Guitarist/Singer/Composer, known for his 12 years heading up the popular New Orleans based band Brotherhood of Groove, along with current projects Krewe de Groove and Krewe de Roux, carries 25+ years of professional playing and touring experience. Tarricone has toured and performed all over the USA and around the world at some of the most popular venues and along side a long list of well known musicians. Eric Reardon, Guitarist, is hometown musical royalty where he was born and raised in Salem Ma. Reardon has been performing for 15 years all over New England since he was a young 14 year old guitarist with a hardcore following of cult fans with other projects including Sarah and the Wild Versatile and Casual Acquaintances. Eric’s guitar chops are like none other on the scene today. Derek Hayden, percussionist/drummer, is a hard working and in demand performer in the Boston/New England area. From orchestral, to jazz, to blues/rock, Derek is well versed. He is a founding member of Sarah and The Wild Versatile and Merrimack Delta Dub Set, and most importantly he brings the heavy grooves to the stage every night.  Theo Brierley rounds out the band with his driving bass lines, and attention to all things low end.
