The Waldo Theatre (916 Main St, Waldoboro) is excited to have Maine’s own Jason Spooner Band
perform on its stage on Wednesday, June 29 at 7pm. Lydia Luce from Nashville, TN will be opening.
Portland, Maine based songwriter, guitarist and producer Jason Spooner has been a visible and
respected presence on the northeastern and national live music circuits for close to two decades. As the
bandleader of The Jason Spooner Band (Dan Boyden- Drums,Stu Mahan- Bass and Dawson Hill-Keyboards), Spooner has expanded his musical horizons significantly over the course of five studio
releases. The quartet stands out with an interesting signature sound that appeals to a wide range of
audiences… seamlessly blending a variety of musical influences into a cohesive, energetic and listenable
experience. Roots Rock, Americana, blues, folk and groove-oriented jazz with undercurrents of reggae
and soul are all accounted for here and supported by audibly strong musicianship, interesting
arrangements and well-crafted, intelligent writing.
The recipe has certainly served the band well; over the last decade and a half this dynamic band has
performed with acts as varied as B.B. King, John Mayer, Jackson Browne, Michael Franti & Spearhead,
RayLaMontagne, Susan Tedeschi, Brett Dennen, Allen Stone, Everlast, Jackie Greene, G. Love, Guster,
BluesTraveler, Peter Rowan and Sara Bareilles.
Pulling from musical references that span her orchestral background to contemporary classical, roots,
indie rock and jazz, Nashville-based artist Lydia Luce doesn’t restrict herself to any singular genre.
The lushness of the orchestration of Lydia Luce’s newest release,Garden Songs EP is striking on first
listen, and fans may hear it as a return to her musical roots. The mystery of why starts to unravel when
she explains that she wrote it at an artist retreat on Orcas Island, a tiny destination of some 57 square
miles off the coast of Washington state known for vistas of water, forest, rocks, beaches, and blue skies.
As is frequently the case for Luce, being in nature helped stimulate her creative mind and writing in such
a picturesque setting helped her focus her attention on the world around her.
Concessions, including beer and wine for those 21+ will be available at the show. Doors open at 6pm.
The Waldo is no longer requiring proof of vaccination, and recommends masks for all visitors in keeping
with current CDC guidelines. We are limiting our capacity in order to provide space between patrons.
Tickets are $25 in advance online and $30 in person on the day of the show. Visit
