NEW BRITAIN – For those who are still planning their weekend, a Rock and Roll band and a Blues performance will be entertaining in New Britain Saturday and Sunday.


Trinity on Main is scheduled to feature The Jam Factory, a music group that tributes authentic Rock and Roll. The group covers popular artists such as Adele and Deep Purple, but they also have original material. The members of The Jam Factory have over two centuries of combined experience. They have played individually in various parts of the country including the West Coast, Maine and Florida. The group talents have a lineup of female and male front vocals, a mix of guitar, bass, and drums. During the show, attendees are welcome to enjoy the snacks and drinks sold at Trinity on Main’s full cash bar.

The performance is from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Trinity on Main is located at 69 Main St.

Tickets can be purchased for $10 online at or at the door for $15.


The New Britain Museum of American Art will present Ramblin’ Dan Stevens, an artist known as the “American Bluesman”. The performance is part of the museum’s concert series that occurs the second Sunday of every month.

The show will be a mix of popular songs and traditional fingerstyle blues. Stevens, who has been performing in Connecticut for decades, uses the twangy bottleneck slide technique familiar to fans of Muddy Waters and Elmore James. A demonstration of Stevens’ homemade cigar box guitar will also take place at the performance. Stevens will entertain the audience with stories about his musical treasures and the blues.

“We are very excited to host this performance with Dan Stevens,” Museum of American art’s Jeffrey Mainville, senior manager, visitor experience programs, said. “His guitar playing and song repertoire are exceptional. We are honored to have him perform at the New Britain Museum of American art.”

The music show will take place from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Museum of American Art is located at 56 Lexington St. The show is free for museum members, and it is free for the public with museum admission, which is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors.
