Academy Building Grounds
201 Main St
Chester, VT 05143

The fourth concert in the Chester Music Series features The Stone Cold Roosters, a band that can strut, swing and rock across decades of American music with style. Classic country, Swamp-rock, Hillbilly-funk, Blues, Western Swing and Honky-tonk are just a few of the stops the Roosters make on their continental tour.

Lead singer and founder Colin McCaffrey is a full-time record producer and performer from East Montpelier. Originally from Westminster, McCaffrey has become a ubiquitous presence in the Vermont music scene.

From the back roads of Vershire, Ted Mortimer plays lead guitar. A master of tone and twang, Mortimer brings a rock edge to the band from his decades of experience as front man for his R&B/Blues band Dr. Burma.

Hailing from Jericho, Roy Cutler is a musician who happens to be a drummer. A great songwriter and crooner, Cutler plays and sings with the intensity of Levon Helm and gives the Roosters a solid rhythmic drive to navigate the many musical back alleys the Roosters explore.

Casey Dennis plays the bass for the Roosters and seems to be Roy’s twin brother separated from birth. Together the two of them are an unflagging rhythm section. Dennis also has years of experience in multiple musical styles.

Fiddler Thal Aylward comes from Windsor, and is also a member of FryDaddy and Spy. Expect some fireworks from Aylward.

Jim Pitman has become a household name in the Pedal Steel world. An engineer who designed electronic pickups for some of the best steel players in Nashville and beyond, Pitman is also a brilliant Dobro and steel guitar player.

Chuck Eller is first and foremost an amazing keyboardist. A founding member of both Kilimanjaro and The Unknown Blues Band,  Eller is also a globally acclaimed studio engineer from Charlotte.

Bring a blanket, a chair, some refreshments and enjoy. Rain space is at the American Legion on Route 103 South.
