Sat, December 7, 8pm – 11pm
“Kris Hansen defied death; somehow, he’s lived to tell about it. Actually, he spends more time singing about it. Hansen has experienced an artistic rebirth, a burst of creativity, as if he’s trying to make up for all the writing time he’s missed. It’s a musical jacquard of styles, from breezy, jazzy, and psyche pop to folk, roots, and classic rock.” — Bob Gulla – The Providence Pheonix

Unnamed Colors is an original band. Its members—Sierra (vocals, keyboard), Andrew (guitar), and Jay (drums, percussion)—fuse their different musical backgrounds and perspectives to create richly dynamic songs that invoke an inner nod. The band’s genre hovers in the realm of melodic rock, but ultimately refuses to settle into the end of any spectrum.

Jeff Savlon is one of those people who can take his experiences and weave them into an inspiring song. Jeff has enjoyed music, especially Van Morrison, since he was a teenager. When he was 16, after much begging his parents gave him a used electric guitar and, with the help of some friends, Jeff taught himself how to play. He got pretty good.
