Tim Gearan Band

Tim Gearan Band has been playing in the Boston area for about 17 years, both solo and with a band. Tim plays rootsy, bluesy rock on electric and acoustic guitar. He recently ended his Monday night residency at Toad in October after an amazing 15 year run. More on that below...

Like Dennis Brennan, Bill Janovitz and Billy Beard, Tim is one of the true Unsung Heroes of the Boston Music Scene. Although his Monday night residency ended, he still plays regularly on Fridays at Atwoods Tavern and Sundays at The Burren. I've seen him play with his rockin' band at Atwoods and they are great!

This excellent video below by onandoffofmassave documents the last night at Toad on September 28, 2009. I think the little film shows what makes the music community here so special. While it was an end of an era of sorts, it was truly a night of celebration and appreciation. While I did see Tim play that week and since, sadly, I wasn't at his last Monday night at Toad...

The Tim Gearan Band is Tim Gearan (guitars, vocals), Lou Ulrich (bass), Andy Plaisted (drums), Sean Staples (mandolin, vocals), Chris Anzalone (percussion), Scott Aruda (trumpet), Paul Ahlstrand (saxamaphone)

The Sunday Burren sessions are with Sean Staples, Dan Kellar, Eric Royer and Scott Corneille
