Former Boston Drummer Jim Masdea Rocks the Alex and Ani Lounge

Saturday, July 14, 2018

 

Jim Masdea

Decades after his years with the band Boston, Jim Masdea is still rocking.

Masdea was the original drummer for the band, leaving in 1976 just before their first, self-titled album was released. Masdea later returned to the band in the 1980s.

These days, Masdea is still performing, playing a combination of Boston songs and originals in a show he calls “Trimount: Before Boston.”

Along with Dirty Laundry, Masdea will perform at Ralph’s Rock Diner in Worcester on Sunday, July 15 at 8 p.m. He describes the show as a sort of lecture, where he will tell the story of Boston and how it came to be, with musical performances threaded throughout the evening.

For more information on the show or to buy tickets in advance, visit Jim’s website.

Performing in the Alex and Ani Lounge on Friday, Masdea chose two of his own songs, as well as the Boston classic, Rock and Roll Band, which he arranged and played drums for on the original recording.

Masdea’s mammoth drum kit, comprised of 25 pieces in total, features 13 cymbals and an impressive array of drums. Given to him as a promotional gift when he represented Sabian in the 1980’s, Masdea says the massive set allows him more freedom to enjoy himself when he plays.

“I could make it work with just a snare, bass, and one cymbal,” he said. “but what fun would that be?”
