Comedy Night with Darren Sechrist & Friends
Connecticut’s own Darren Sechrist brings together some of New England’s top comics for a rollicking good time. A mix of headliners, seasoned comics, and new voices will be bringing the funny to the Buttonwood Tree. This is a show you don’t want to miss! This month’s lineup includes: Howie Mason (headlining), Dave Sheehan, Kareem Blue, Darren Sechrist, Josh Levinson, and possibly a special guest! (Some adult content.)

A moto performance features new Soca music from Trinidad, traditional roots reggae and creative interpretations of rock, R&B and soul music with elements of jazz, salsa and afrobeat. With our collective years of experience playing all types of music, what comes out is always new and unique. We may start with “Differentology”, a jungle beat by Bunjy Garlin, one of Trinidads new pioneers of Soca, then segue into Dolla Wine, a pure traditional Soca with a relentless uptempo dance groove and shout along hooks. Then bring it down to a slow pulsing version of Night Nurse by Gregory Isaacs. Standards like “The Harder They Come”, “Stir It Up” and “Hot, Hot, Hot” are mixed in with surprises like our take on “When Doves Cry” from Prince. And we feature songs by Machel Montano. This new artist combines traditional Soca feels with an new electric style creating irresistible dance grooves.
