The Waltham Sound is a new concert series at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation celebrating the great talent and diversity in our great, small City's musician community.
Audiences can look forward to shows featuring a wide array of artists from many cultural backgrounds performing in many different musical styles, but who all share one thing in common: they all call Waltham, Massachusetts home!
The Waltham Sound is curated by Brad Faucher, a musician, music teacher, short film producer, and live music producer living in Waltham. Brad has helped build the live music scene in Waltham over the last 10+ years. He has served as co-coordinator for live music for Waltham Riverfest for the last 5 years. In addition, Brad has run Session450 for the last 6 years at Joco’s Bar and Kitchen—a weekly live blues, jazz, and soul music event.
Musically, Faucher has long been a first-call guitarist and vocalist on the Boston blues, and R&B scenes. You may have seen him playing his blues-drenched guitar with Boston’s best including: Chicago Bob Nelson, Bird Taylor, Sweet Willie D, Nicole Nelson and Diane Blue. Notable local performances include the Regent Theatre in Arlington, Boston’s Symphony Hall, and Tanglewood. Brad effortlessly blends blues, jazz, gospel, and R&B in the tradition of Johnny Guitar Watson, Grant Green, Snooks Eaglin, Cornell Dupree, and O’Donnell Levy. You can currently see him perform with Session450, The Spoilers, Grant AME Male Gospel Chorus, KONG, and Good Lord the Lifted!
Brad Faucher's musical taste and his deepening connections to Waltham's musician community have us at the Museum knowing we have a lot of great music to look forward to as we discover together "The Waltham Sound!"
