A closer look at Boston with bass player Tracy Ferrie

By Chad Hobbs

Peace of Mind, Don t Look Back, More Than a Feeling, Foreplay/Long Time, and Amanda are a few of the many classic rock anthems that Boston can lay claim to and will be playing live when the band makes a stop on their current tour to Columbus on August 1st. They will be playing the Celeste Center at the Ohio State Fair. I didn t hesitate when I was given the opportunity to interview the newest member of the band, bass player Tracy Ferrie.
The bands publicist, Gail Parenteau, was gracious enough to organize the interview and Tracy was the real deal. During my time with him on the phone I got to know a little more about him, I got a better understanding to the inner workings of Boston and the music they play, and we even got to do a little bit of old fashioned rock  n roll discussion.

Boston in Austin

Last night, the 80s stadium-filling band Boston played a sold-out show on the ACL Live stage at the Moody Theater. Founding member, inventor and philanthropist Tom Scholz led the band through a set list containing all of Boston's monster hits. Tommy DeCarlo, the former Home Depot employee who was found through a YouTube karaoke video posting, assumed lead singer duties and the Austin crowd enthusiastically sang along. Austinist's Steve Hopson photographed the action.
