Sarah Borges returns to Natalie’s with her great band The Broken Singles, along with very special guest Eric “Roscoe” Ambel. Borges is an alluring figure onstage, delivering performances packed with power and punch. Born to play rock ‘n’ roll, she gives herself fully — much to the audience’s pleasure. Based in Boston, Sarah has drawn praise from the most elite of music scribes, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, USA Today, Creative Loafing and The Boston Globe. Whether it be through performances or her writing, Borges has learned to dazzle – and do it well. That ability can be heard all over her 2014 Radio Sweetheart disc, as well as her latest, Good and Dirty. She attributes that ability to a very eclectic sound, which she comes by naturally, she says. “I would say that my sound is straight up rock and roll, but it’s the sum total of what my record collection looks like”.
Veteran singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer Eric Ambel has spent the past three and a half decades building a powerful body of raw, personally charged music that’s earned him a far-reaching reputation as a rock ‘n’ roll original, while keeping him busy in his parallel careers as producer, sideman and collaborator. A deeply committed rocker as well as a thoughtful, crafty songwriter, Ambel has made enduring music as a solo artist and as a member of the Del-Lords, the Yayhoos and countless incarnations of his own legendary combo Roscoe’s Gang. His fiery, inventive guitar work has graced landmark albums by everyone from Steve Earle to Joan Jett to Run-DMC. And his production skills have enlivened recordings by a wide range of artists from across the musical spectrum. His latest album is “Lakeside.”
