Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over.
Dwight & Nicole is a three piece original blues-soul-rock band fronted by Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson. Ritcher and Nelson are both well known on the East Coast for their powerful voices and songwriting. Together, they have toured up and down the Northeast, growing a fiercely loyal fan base, and self releasing two award winning albums through crowd funding. The Boston Globe calls them “A tour de force that demands much wider success” and describes their sound as “poignant, hard-driving and heavenly.”
Joe Moore and The Joe Moore Band perform a wide variety of American rhythm & blues, funk, and jazz, based in Joe’s life-long experience as a powerhouse saxophone player and vocalist. Performances are rooted Moore’s life of playing alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, often working and touring with original composers. His powerful saxophone has developed a reputation for intense, high energy performances, stunning technique and musical prowess.

At Court Street Arts we celebrate the unique history of the Alumni Hall building as it transitioned from an 1800s courthouse, to a school gymnasium, to a condemned building, to what has become a vibrant center for arts and the community.
Over a decade ago the community came together to save the Alumni Hall building with the hopes to one day see the stage alive with theater, dance and music. Today we welcome artists from across the globe and from our very own backyard to the stage, aspiring artists take classes, and our SPARK program gives access to high-quality programming to students from across the region.
