Known for his lyric craft, distinctive voice and soulful songs steeped in classic R&B, pop, jazz and country, Milton first gained attention in New York when his song “In The City” became a hit. Milton has toured with Chris Smither, Josh Ridder, Joan Osborne, Steve Earle, Sonny Landreth, and Colin Hay, and his live performances are praised for their wit, humor, and captivating charm. But don’t take our word for it:

“He has the pitch and rhythm to carry the day, and his sophisticated lyrics keep listeners coming back for more.” The New York Times

Stockbridge, MA–“Lost Lake” Play Performance by the Berkshire Theatre Group @ The Unicorn Stage
Sep 28 @ 7:00 pm

Written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner, David Auburn (Proof), Lost Lake is an engrossing, evocative play. Part drama, part melancholy comedy, Lost Lake follows the story of Veronica and Hogan, imperfect strangers tangled up in each other’s lives by circumstance. Veronica, hopelessly in need of an escape from life’s uphill battle, takes her children to a lakeside rental. Unfortunately for Veronica, not only is the property less than ideal, it also includes a bedraggled and secluded estate owner, Hogan. Both fighting their own battles, the two outcasts find complicated comfort in their shared isolation.

Directed by Daisy Walker (Assistant Director on Broadway’s Jersey Boys, The Farnsworth Invention, Dracula: The Musical), this stirring, unexpected and visceral play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award.

Pittsfield, MA–Pittsfield CityJAZZ Festival: The Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience @ The Colonial Theatre
Oct 14 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets: A: $38 B: $23

The Afro Cuban Experience, led by Dizzy Gillespie’s long-term bassist, John Lee, showcases the unique rhythms and well-loved melodies (such as “Manteca” and “Tin Tin Deo”) of Gillespie’s library of Cu-Bop, which he developed with Chano Pozo in the ’40s and ’50s. Their repertoire also explores the broader world of Latin-American music.

Pittsfield, MA–Woody’s Road House Reunion II @ The Colonial Theatre
Oct 28 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets: A: $45.00 B: $35.00

For one magical night, take a trip back to the legendary Washington, Massachusetts music hall, Woody’s Roadhouse. The place where bands like The Cars, The Outlaws, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, NRBQ, Foghat, John Cafferty and The Beaver Brown Band, Fat, Shenandoah, The David Bromberg Band and many others rocked the house for nearly 30 years. Woody’s was the place in The Berkshires to catch national touring acts and great local and regional bands – in an era when an out of the way roadhouse could be packed every week.

The Woody’s Roadhouse Reunion will feature some of those very bands for this incredible event as Fat, The Spampinato Brothers (featuring Joey and Johnny Spampinato of NRBQ fame), the Zarvis Allen Band and Burnt Bacon and The Home Fries (featuring special guest Diane Wieland) will all reunite to celebrate the one and only “Original Rock & Roll Palace,” Woody‘s Roadhouse. Woody himself will even make an appearance…and who knows who else might show up to jam.
