Legendary alt-rock band from Jamestown, 10,000 Maniacs featuring Mary Ramsey, will be performing at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards on Friday, June 11th, marking their first performance since February 29, 2020.
10,000 Maniacs has been kicking it for 40 years at this point. The band still consist of four of the six original members: Mary Ramsey, who replaced the lead singer in 1993 on lead vocals and viola; Steven Gustafson on bass and guitar; Dennis Drew on keyboard; Jeff Erickson who replaced founding member Robert Buck on guitar; John Lombardo on guitar; and Jerome Augustyniak on drums.
After nearly 15 months off the road, 10,000 Maniacs is excited to finally get back to playing shows. The time off the road has also given the band time to write new material, with a couple dozen new tunes in the works and the prospect of recording a new studio album. Releasing close to 20 albums over their storied career, 10,000 Maniacs has become recognized as one of the most enduring bands from the early “alternative rock” movement. Their critically acclaimed, break-out album, “In My Tribe”, was included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s “100 Best Albums Of The Eighties.”
It will be a happy day when we all in the arts and everyday life can experience the freedom to breathe and be in a safe and nurturing environment. I am looking forward to being energized again by our amazing and loyal fansMary Ramsey, Lead Singer
