Last Sunday night I made it out to Precinct in Somerville to see the Sea Monsters, a band of rotating Boston area musicians led by Christian McNeill. The group has been playing Sunday nights in Somerville for almost 4 years now. These days you’ll usually find McNeill and Jesse Dee on guitars and vocals, joined by Mike Miksis on bass, Lyle Brewer on lead guitar, Tom Arey on drums and John and Scott Aruda on tenor sax and trumpet respectively. Beyond that, there are different special guests each week, and you’ll just have to show up to find out who!
Last week, Cilla Bonnie played bass and Chris Anzalone was on drums. Jesse Ciarmataro (aka QWILL) played keys and sang while Sarah Seminski was on lead vocals as well as harmonies with McNeill. Tonight, the one and only Sarah Borges will join Sea Monsters, for what’s sure to be a rocking night!
For a $5 cover, the musical melting pot that is the Sea Monsters will treat you to a night full of spontaneity in an intimate setting. If you’re a music lover in general and better yet, if you like to support the Boston music scene, Sunday nights at Precinct are not to be missed!
