The "Monday Night Live" series at the Bearsville Theater presents The Sweet Clementines!! Though there's no cover charge, an optional monetary donation will always be appreciated. All procedes will go to the band.
A New Paltz-based six-piece founded by two guitar-whiz English teachers, the Sweet Clementines play a dreamy, earthy, melodic, and all-around original (sm)art pop.—with vibraphones and violins.
“Exhilarating, epic pop-cabaret-prog-folk laced with Baltic overtones. This is bubblegum and borscht, popcorn and pierogies, spun into scrumptious sound. If the Merseybeat gypsy melodies don’t get you, the well-wrought lines will.” Robert Burke Warren, Chronogram
“A wonderful piece of work. The writing is way, way, way up there. Masterful. Beautiful.” Jon Ossman, bassist with Marc Cohn, Paula Cole, Chris Botti.
“The Sweet Clementines are my kind of band--sweet, funny, smart and melodic.” Rhett Miller, Old 97s
“Smart fun for smart people. The Sweet Clementines may pull you into unexpected pop terrain but there’s a solid Beatlesque foundation underneath.” Ghosty, Sirius Disorder: Channel 70
