Bethany Conner and Troy Millette

 

I had a great time seeing music a couple of Saturdays ago at On Tap Bar & Grill in Essex. I had to work that early evening, but as soon as I could, I hopped into the car and drove to the show. I got in and settled as Troy Millette Music was finishing up a song. He dove into Mr Jones and may have changed the opening lyric but I wasn’t quite settled enough to be sure. I’m On Fire had a little Dancing In The Dark in the middle, then he filled my heart with Magnolias. I think the next one was a Taylor Swift cover then he brought up Bethany Conner Music to join him on his song Home. It sounded lovely.

 

He left the stage but she continued on with a song called Home. Her dad Greg Conner played cajon on a few songs and she played solo on several. She has an endearing voice and bright attitude. Her stories are as much fun to listen to as Troy’s so it’s great that they play together so often. She encouraged her friends to step back from that ledge then said hey soul sister. She played a cool song called Clearer from her upcoming album that I’m anxious to hear. Wonderwall was fun, then she played one about how even the best fall down. She played one about the boy who went away to college and didn’t come back called I Miss You, then played a newer one called Anchor that is quickly becoming a favorite. The line about how they call it the real world because you’re not allowed to dream always catches me. Drops of Jupiter sounded great then she played a song about the one that got away. She sang 1 2 3 better come back to me, then wrapped her set with Landslide. I really enjoy her songs and am enjoying watching her evolve. The future is unlimited.

Apparently, I had missed Bethany’s first set, caught some of Troy’s first set, caught all of Bethany’s second set, so it was time for Troy to finish off the night. He opened with an Atlantic City/Fast Car medley, then played a beautiful version of his song Brothers. He played a new song that said something in your love feels like home. He followed with Ghosts (Of What We Used To Be) and I was in a very happy place. He played another medley of ’90’s songs and emphasized the dance with somebody Whitney inspiration that he has found. He brought up Jesse and Steve from Shake and played a song about running around this town. They capped the night with Running On Empty and the crowd was in a happy place.

I chatted briefly then took the long drive home. I missed a lot but did catch 25 songs and had a great night.

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Radio Bean. I’ve enjoyed the lovely sounds of Bethany Conner Music for a while and was psyched that she was playing in town. I got going a little late and walked in 10 minutes after 7:30 showtime. She was playing a cool cover of Linger as I got in and settled. She played some songs solo and some with her dad Greg Conner, but always lead the songs. Her voice is powerful, she’s a solid guitar player and she has great stage presence. Between songs she engaged the audience and made it a fun evening. She played a cover of Wonderwall then switched to her own songs for a cool version of Can You Love Me Too? She played a song about believing in me that will be from her upcoming album City Full Of Big Kids. She played Drops Of Jupiter and tossed in a little Drift Away at the end. That was the end of the first part of her set, since she and Julia Mark were each doing two alternating sets.

Julia took the stage with a song about the seasons changing called Doors. It was really cool. Her quick and well-articulated lyrics were a delight to follow. She sang a song called The Contract and advised everyone who was considering getting into a relationship to sign one, so you know what’s up. She played a song about palindromes then switched to ukulele for a song about a Lending Library. She moved back to keys for Gemini then played a new song called Mirrors And Windows that was really cool. She closed her set with a song about places you used to live in, but don’t anymore, called The Stranger Is You.

Bethany returned to the stage and regaled us with fun stories and cool tunes. She opened with a song that she wrote about not being able to do laundry and wondering how she would survive in the world. She asked will you jump with me then followed with a cover of Jumper. A song called Anchor was about having someone to hold you steady and about how they call it the real world since you are not allowed to dream. She engaged the group of boys in the back with a song about a boy who dumped her and the back and forth was pretty funny. The song, I Miss You, was pretty good too. She sang about doing something amazing before your life slips away and closed with a cover of Ex’s And Oh’s. It’s always a great time when she plays.

Julia returned to the stage and opened with a song called Sway. She sang about everything you never wanted and Static Electricity. She sang about being A Keeping Person and sang about how matter cannot be created or destroyed. She sang about how your heart is not a bottle of wine and you can’t cork it and leave it. She closed with a song about the end of the world and said she would see us on the moon.

I was pretty wiped out and the next day was set to be a long one, so I ducked out the door quickly and took the lovely walk home. I’m blessed to be able to hear so much amazing music with a mere walk downtown and back.

I had a great time seeing music in our community tonight. I worked a 9-5:30 shift then drove straight to Essex. As I walked up through the parking lot I could hear Troy Millette Music and Bethany Conner Music singing together. I got in and settled and Bethany left the stage and Troy continued his set. He told a story about truckers listening to his music and how the next song was #18 on an overnight long haul country station. Ghosts sounded great as he contemplated what was waiting on the other side after he died. He plugged his upcoming August 17th album release and said he would be opening for Live and Counting Crows the next day. His version of Round Here was unique and poignant. His in-between song banter was top shelf as he played a song called Brothers, which will be the first song on his upcoming album. He asked if we wanted a Beatles song or a mashup. Mashup won and he played a bunch of songs I did not know, but sounded vaguely familiar. I think he said there was some Taylor Swift in there and at he end had us let our inner Whitney Houston out. He closed the night with the first few verses of Freebird then dropped it into Let It Be. He is such a wonderful talent.

Bethany took the stage to a noisy food and drink ordering patio bar and fiercely cut through it with her songs. She played a song about being twisted and one about doing laundry for the first song and wondering if she was ever going to be able to make it through life. Her dad, Greg Conner joined her on the cajon on that one, and several others during the set. She played a heartfelt version of Linger then asked when you’re going to come around, you’re going to come around. Jumper was cool then she played a song from her upcoming EP. Believe in me like I believe in you was just great and had a nicely complex rhythm. Ho Hey was familiar and fun then she played a song about regretting nothing. She sang about colliding and how I love you when you’re singing that song. She reminisced about feeling like she would be anything you wanted her to be, but it had an eye to the future where that is not the ideal. Drops of Jupiter was cool and the Drift Away ending only made it more fun. Wonderwall was fun then she played a sweet old original called Josie. The A Team was fun then she went back to Train for Soul Sister. She played a very gentle version of Landslide then played an original about how she has seen the end and everything will be OK. A new song called Anchor was stunning then she sang about the one that got away. She sang about knowing what lay at the end of summer and not wanting it to end then played a cool song called Perfect. She played a short song from her first ep about sweet dreams and closed the 24 song set with Ex’s And Oh’s. I loved her new songs, her powerhouse voice, and can’t wait for the next album.

I drove home, did a quick turnaround, then took the walk downtown to Bleu Northeast Seafood. Julia Beerworth and Josh Glass were on stage as I got in and settled. They were singing about how everything is about you. What’s In California lit me up hard then they followed with Here Comes The Sun. They played a sweet Julia song about a House On A Hill then closed the set with Dylan’s Oh, Sister. I chatted with Josh for a bit in the break and settled back in as he played a cool new song called Miles Above Me. Julia returned for a song about getting rich and buying our parent’s houses. Dylan’s I Want You was great but their version of One More Cup Of Coffee sent chills down my spine. They played another Julia song about an old Oak Tree, then played Angel From Montgomery. I thought they were kidding about playing some Zeppelin but Tangerine was sweet. It was getting late so I ducked out the door as they played Let It Bleed into Honky Tonk woman. They sounded so nice.

I walked over to Finnegan’s and it was just about time for The Mountain Says No to play. They opened hard and heavy with Restaurant then released the glory of King Grifter. I Know Right rocked hard and Iron And Metal kept the glory factor high. Right Bright Lord was searing and Eggshell rocked hard. They throttled back a tiny amount for 3,000 Incubators then jammed out Ricky The Rider. They took us to incredible heights with Machu Picchu and eased back into searing territory with If You Lie. Gazerbeam started slow and had a nice build and they closed with a blistering version of The Bomb. It was so great to see and hear them.

Savage Hen followed with a set so heavy most metal became instantly jealous. They played songs such as Voodoo Revenge and Alabama Swamp Skin. They sang about seats that were taken and a clever girl. They took us to the edge of the world then spoke of Local Lore. They played a long song about the wolf and a 36 second song called Curtain Call. They hit us hard with one more before calling it a night.

I ducked out quickly and took the lovely walk home. I know I missed a ton of music tonight, but I caught a lot and loved it all.
