Chris McDermott's “Rhythm to the Brain”

  • Orange Door Kitchen 251 Arlington Street Acton, MA 01720 USA (map)

Guitarist. Singer. Composer. Possessing a unique rhythmic style, Chris draws from what seems to be every available musical color in the palette and has worked as a sideman and band leader with some of the best jazz, blues, and soul players in the world.

Featuring the drumming of Marco Giovino (Robert Plant's Band of Joy, JJ Cale ), and John Lockwood (The Fringe, Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins) on bass. This band is all about the Rhythm. This is for real music lovers. Great music which crosses over many boundaries. Masterful musicianship and writing.

Chris has released 9 albums to date and continues to play internationally, nationally, and locally.

Doors open at 7pm

Our fall 2018 "Fugitive at the Door" series at Orange Door Kitchen in West Acton surpassed expectations. Most evenings sold out. Great performers. Great audiences. Great amenities. We present “listening” music — one to a few performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, classical, world music — and more.

Orange Door owners Meredith and Chris Powell have created a lovely, inviting, and intimate setting in the space — it feels like a comfy living room/kitchen. And they are very welcoming hosts.

They serve a few small plates each evening and provide a full bar including some excellent wine offerings. Orange Door is a no cash, no tipping venue. Please bring a credit/debit card. Gratuities are included in the menu price.
