The Chad Hollister Band is a voice for the positive. The music is a blend of Chad's unique melodies, grooves, lyrics, as well as his positive vision of life. The music could be described like any of the great bands he has opened for or performed with such as Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Blues Traveler, Phish, Paul Simon, Little Feat and the list goes on. Yet people have also compared his music to Lenny Kravitz, Dave Mathews, Jack Johnson and John Mayer.

Randy Smith (lead vocalist of the legendary Vermont-based band 8084) & His Band of Merry Men, is a singer-songwriter based in Charlotte, North Carolina. A Billboard and International award winning musician, Randy has recorded six albums and toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, performing over 4,500 live shows over the span of his career. His resume includes working with Aldo Nova (Celine Dion, Jon Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper) and sharing the stage or touring with Edgar Winter, Bobby Kimball (Toto), Rick Derringer, April Wine, Henry Lee Summer, Foghat and Warrant to name a few. His band of Merry Men feature fellow 8084 mate Roy Brown on bass and vocals, as well as U.S. Hall of Fame fiddler Scott Campbell, percussionist Keith DeSilva, and Long Island guitarist Rich Abel.

Charlie Farren emerged onto the national scene in the early '80s as lead singer and guitarist with The Joe Perry Project. In that band Charlie established himself as one of the hottest young singers to emerge from the Boston music scene, writing such hits as "Listen To The Rock," "East Coast, West Coast" and 'I've Got The Rock And Rolls Again".

In 1986, Charlie, Dave Hull (Joe Perry Project) and John Muzzy formed FARRENHEIT, releasing their self-titled debut album on Warner Brothers which would garner three singles; "Fool in Love," "Bad Habit" and "Lost in Loveland." The band would also receive video exposure on MTV, establishing FARRENHEIT as one of the premier new rock acts and receiving awards, media attention and new fans across the country.

Tickets are $21 for general admission, $25 for reserved premium seating. Tickets can be purchased at the Claremont Opera House box office, online at or by calling (603) 542-4433.
