  1. Steve Hatch & The Redliners at The Buttonwood Tree

    July 23, 2021, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Born and raised in North Eastern Ohio, Steve Hatch spent his youth running cross country before retiring his track shoes and learning to play the piano more seriously. He traveled on his bike from town to town performing in nursing homes in exchange for food and water. He ultimately formed the Redliners Band, known for its tightness and combination of Blues, Rock, and old-school country music, along with leanings of New Orleans style within. Steve will be accompanied by a talented array of crew members: Bryan Caudle on Drums, Jackson LaRose on Bass, and Gene Donaldson on Guitar, who was notably inducted into the CT Blues Hall of Fame. Along with Hatch's love for music came recognition, as he was the solo winner of the CT annual Blues Contest in 2018, as well as his involvement in the Rich Badowski band, who won in 2012.
