Well, well, looky here! It's DR, all masked-up and ready to rock 'n rollick outside on Railroad St. in downtown Great Barrington, MA! The town has given the 'green light' for restaurants to offer dining al fresco, so RR St. will be all set up with tables, chairs and suitably safely-attired waitstaff to satisfy your long pent-up need to dine out...and they wanted DR and his eclectic brand of "Delta Goes to the Caribbean", finger-pickin' good styles to accompany the festivities. 6:30-9PM - On the Street! This is his first gig in many months and he's rarin' to play...Come join him, won't you? He may sound even better wearing a mask!

The Barn Chronicles - Nick Keene
"David Reed has been an anchor and tireless innovator in the Berkshires' Live Music scene for almost 4 decades. Originally one of the founding members of the legendary Max Creek band in 1971, he went on to form multiple musical incarnations including Tamboura, The Band of Introverts, The Venerable Tutus and many others. David has played extensively throughout North America, the Caribbean and Europe and his vibrant performance style reflects a heavy Caribbean influence as a well as a deep understanding and passion for American musicology."

Connecticut Magazine –Ram Miles
"David Reed and his band, Tamboura, delivers the passionate edge of rock with the primal pulse of worldbeat."
