The "Chromatic" Chet Williamson

Disappearing nightly -- The "Chromatic" Chet Williamson and pianist Ric Maure are now in weekly residency. Catch them every Friday
at Bailey's Pub at the Regency Suites Hotel, 70 Southbridge Street, Worcester.

Performing harmonica favorites, sections from Chromatic Swing, originals and jazz & blues standards,
this potent duo have quickly established Bailey's as the place to be on Friday nights.

"Chet Williamson's skills on the harmonica have never been in doubt as he's traveled a 20-years-and-counting musical career. But with the recently released compact disc "Chromatic Swing," we hear how Williamson has banged those skills into a signature sound." - Scott McLennan, Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

A versatile pianist who has been called a "jazz player with a bluesy flair," the Boston-based Maure is known for his consummate performing and recording with such notables as T.J. Wheeler, Pat "Hatrack" Gallagher, and the Workingman's Jazz Band.
Join them and special invited guests to help make Baileys a regular spot for both musicians and music fans alike. Great food. No cover
