Band Interview with Ffld CTY Music Reporter

Hello Music Friends and Live Music Supporters,

It was so good to see my music friends from the band CREAMERY STATION on Friday, September 30, 2016 at the FTC Warehouse venue. CREAMERY STATION was the opening band for the featured band MAX CREEK. The first time I saw Creamery Station was about two years ago at a venue in the Woodbridge/New Haven area at a restaurant called Wheelers. Since then the band has appeared at various clubs and festivals and has really flourished in popularity. Creamery Station combines several genres of music, namely, jam, blues, rock and bluegrass which has quickly developed into a genre of its own which I would describe as a kind of retro, earthy, “Woodstock-esque” vibe.

The band was originally a spin-off band of the popular R&B band The Bernadettes, but very recently JIM KADER and DON DeSTEFANO left the R&B band to devote themselves to Creamery Station. The band is a combination of long standing professional musicians with the added energy of youth to create a great mesh of age, experience, vitality and musicianship; but –all sharing the same band goals and aspirations to make this unique band creation work. The band members are: JIM KADER (guitar), DON DESTEFANO (harmonica), JON TRUELSON(keyboard/guitar), DYLAN KADER (mandolin/vocals), HARRY COOPER (drums), MIKE RYAN (percussion), DAN RAUCCI (bass).

I had a chance to talk to some of the band members after the performance. I asked Dylan Kader how he felt up there on the stage to which he replied “it was surreal”…and the “sound felt good.” “The crowd energizes me,”….”I love the people…there is a community feel” and “I love the band.” I asked Jim Kader, Dylan’s dad, what he attributes to the band’s success in such a relatively short period of time and he said, “the combination of the young and the old in the band” and “I would add in the audience too”….”there is a kind of a vibe”….plus “the band is pushing forward “….and ” Jon Truelson, our keyboardist is a graduate of Berkelee, and he practices with the younger members of the band.”

There were 10 songs on the setlist. The opening song was “Drove Ole Dixie.” There were three originals– “Ramblers Delight,” “Out of My Reach,” and “Railroad Blues.” Some of their songs spotlighted band members like Jim Kader on guitar in “Applegate,” Jon Truelson, vocals and keys on “Shape I’m In,” and Don DeStefano on harmonica blowing out those “Railroad Blues.” Other songs were: “Such a Night,” “Sisters and Brothers,” and “Deal.”

  • Woah.. Where do we begin? How about with a huge thanks to Amy Johansson and all of the staff, volunteers, photographers, videographers, vendors, bands, sponsors, and everybody else that took part in throwing such an amazing event?! They did such a great job and it really showed. And of course a thank you to all of you that were there showing your support for this cause; it was truly a humbling experience to see so many people come together to say that enough is enough! Change will only happen when whole communities come together and we saw a glimpse of that this weekend; it was beautiful! Don’t forget to bring that home with you and continue to love and look out for one another. ❤ THIS WEEKEND: Saturday we will be doing a private event, but Sunday we will be down at Blazin Vibes in Milford, CT for a FREE OUTDOOR SHOW (event from 12pm-6pm / we play 4-6pm) with our friends in Not Here and Kazoo Crew Family Band. This is a rescheduled event after the one in April was rained out, so you know we have all been chomping at the bit to play this one for y’all; it’s gonna be a blast! Then after we are done at Blazin’ Vibes we will be headed down to Shelton to celebrate the life of our friend Bryan Wendland, who was unfortunately taken away too early earlier this summer. So if you knew Bryan come on down and show some love for his family! All proceeds go to his daughter. ❤ Photos by Chris Sidoruk Photography and Lisa Ryan
