Welcome

       Welcome to the Monterisi Music Stove. I've created this space to share info and news about a few of the music and band projects I'm working on, and let you in on what's cooking in my musical world. The site has pages dedicated to the Boston "big band" Jane's Great Dane, and 32 North, "an American string band, made in Maine." I will also update sightings and happenings with the venerable soul band Hipsocket, the A Team Band, and bluegrass adventures on the page called Midcoast Maine Music. There are some pix, and a bit of blogging about recent gigs. Of course, I will provide information about seeing friends and me live, recordings and contacting me to hire these bands.

       Thank you for visiting the Stove and please return often!

       Yours in music,
       John

32 NORTH'S FIRST  REHEARSAL 2020

32 NORTH'S FIRST REHEARSAL 2020

 

Chris, Jamie, Jon and I are banding together this summer as Three Cool Cats to play some tunes by The Fab Four. Currently we're deciding on song list and details. We're already on deck at The Inn Along The Way for JULY 30, 2020. Fixing a Hole for sure!

Honored to play lead guitar for Dan Bern at his show at Passim in Harvard Square on September 29, 2019 with other friends from Jane's Great Dane and some of Dan's own band. Dan was promoting his new disc, "Regent Street." We played the title track, Not Perfect, and a dozen other tunes. Always a great time with this man!

************************************************SEPT. 1, 2019 : Releasing a new tune called "Roll Back That Stone" recorded this summer by 32 North and our friend Kat Logan. It's got a gospel vibe and features a stunning vocal moment from Kat. Listen (and buy) at the "Listen & Watch" tab. All proceeds help support The Inn Along the Way in Nobleboro, Maine.
