!!! Meet the Artists of PRIDE Block Party !!! 

Artist Spotlight : Suzanne Sheridan and the One Night Stand

In April 1998, when Suzanne Sheridan and The One Night Stand Band took the stage at the sold-out lesbian rock show, “She’s A Rebel – Fearlessly Going Where No Woman Has Gone Before,” they thought that was it. So here we are 21 years later, and The One Night Stand Band with Suzanne Sheridan has gone on to do more than a one-night stand. In 2018, they were asked to perform at the New Haven PRIDE Tea Dance, which they did. They rocked the walls off of 168 York Street Café bringing people off the street who needed to find out where that blazing music was coming from. They are back to rock the block at the 2019 New Haven Pride Block Party on Saturday September 21. Suzanne Sheridan (vocals and rhythm guitar). Bob Cooper (keyboards), and Jake Habegger (drums) are ready to rock and roll you. Let’s dance!!

Suzanne Sheridan and the One Night Stand will be performing on the PRIDE Main Stage beginning at 2:15p.

Westport, CT – The popular new concert series, “Concerts and Cocktails,” is taking the show outdoors at Xpozur Gallery, 263 Riverside Avenue, on Sunday SEPT. 22 from 2 to 6 PM. To reflect the cuisine of the event, it will be known as “Concerts and BBQ.” The music is pure Rock ‘n Roll from “The One Night Stand Band.” This presents an opportunity to hear some of the best players in the area playing the best of rock ‘n roll – Suzanne Sheridan on vocals and rhythm guitar, Bob Cooper on keyboards, Tim DeHuff on lead guitar, and Jake Habegger on drums.

“Pulling together a group of musicians of this caliber with the chops that they each have is a bit of a coup,” remarked Rozanne Gates, producer of the event and the “Concert and Cocktails” series. “The people who come on July 21 are going to be dancing and rockin’ out to the music we all heard on the radio back in the 60’s and 70’s and eating home cooked chicken and ribs at the same time. I for one am counting the days.”

WHAT DO BOB DYLAN AND LEONARD COHEN HAVE IN COMMON?

•November 7, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Question: What Do Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen Have in Common? Answer: Suzanne Sheridan

Westport – Yes, both men are songwriters; yes, they are both musical icons of the latter half of the 20th century; yes, both are standard-bearers for human rights; yes, they both had multiple life-partners. But what they solidly have in common is singer/performer Suzanne Sheridan. Few women have attempted to conquer the oeuvre of even one of these men much less both in the time frame of less than a month. But no one has ever accused Suzanne Sheridan of being timid in her approach to music.

On Friday November 17 from 6-8 PM, The Suzanne Sheridan Band will be performing the music of Leonard Cohen who died exactly one year ago. The concert will take place as part of the “Coffeehouse at the Wheeler’s” series at the Westport Historical Society, 25 Avery Place in Westport.

Sheridan has actually been performing Cohen’s music (and Joni Mitchell’s music) since 2010. Those performances have taken place in the US and Australia and Canada. But when Cohen died, Sheridan felt compelled to keep his music alive and created a concert dedicated to him, which her incomparable band played to overwhelmingly enthusiastic reception in Canada just this past summer.

On Saturday December 9 from 8-10 PM, The Suzanne Sheridan Band will be performing the music of Bob Dylan at Voices Café at the Unitarian Church in Westport, 10 Lyons Plains Road.

Sheridan first covered the music of Bob Dylan with her band at “Coffeehouse at the Wheeler’s” on April 28 of this year. That concert was immediately sold out so a second concert was scheduled for May 12 and as soon as it was announced, that concert was also sold out. The following week, on May 20, the band took the Dylan concert to New Milford’s Merryall Performing Arts Center and that show was sold out.

On August 12 of this year, the band switched gears and took the Leonard show to Canada. Westporters were still hungry for Dylan and Voices Café scheduled the Dylan concert for December 9. The Westport Historical Society was hungry for the Cohen music and scheduled the concert for November 17. This is Sheridan’s Olympiad of the finest male songwriters of the last half of the 20th century and you can join her on this epic journey. She is up to it, her band is up to it, and hopefully you will be up to it. This chance may never come again.
