Replacement blues wows the crowd

Maniacs rescheduled for July 15

Posted

The sold-out, highly anticipated kick-off concert to the annual Milford Music Fest on June 10, featuring the band 10,000 Maniacs, was postponed due to a medical emergency.

The new concert date is scheduled for Friday, July 15. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the performance begins at 8 p.m. Tickets from the postponement will be honored at the theater.

The 10,000 Maniacs are currently on their 40th anniversary tour.

Upon receiving the news of the last-minute cancellation, the man behind the Milford Theater, Bill Rosado, reached out to his friend Bobby Kyle to fill in. Kyle then contacted Scott Weis, who was on board with the impromptu performance.

Kyle said that he had played with Weis’ band in the past, but this was the first time Weis had joined Kyle and his band, the Administers.

The house was nearly full, and, fans said, the event was something that blues aficionados could only dream about.

10,000 Maniacs is an American alternative rock band founded in 1981. They have released nine studio albums, six EPs, and five live albums. Between 1987 and 1993, according to Wikipedia, they released four albums that charted in the top 50 in the U.S.: “In My Tribe” (1987), “Blind Man’s Zoo” (1989), “Our Time in Eden” (1992) and the live album “MTV Unplugged” (1993).
