Marlene Hutchins picked up the guitar at age 10, driven to learn popular folk songs and transistor radio hits. A huge Beatle fan, she’d play and sing harmony with her sister and cousins to every song they could learn, as fast as they could learn them. Auditions for talent shows followed, and soon she convinced the owner of Cafe Galleria, an Italian restaurant below the Joni-Mitchell-made-famous Laurel Canyon Country Store, to hire her to perform a solo series for dinner guests.
In 1989, Marlene moved to Montana and found herself in the circle of huge, warm and welcoming music family, which led her to the musicians (Marlene, Carla Green, and Eric Pfeiffer) that form the band Basses Covered, a trio she embraces.
Basses Covered has been blazing their way through Missoula, from festivals to tap rooms to markets to back yard patios. We play well-known and little-known songs from our favorite music libraries of artists that include Ray Charles, the original Moody Blues, Everly Brothers, Moonglows and our own tunes.
Veteran musicians Carla (bass, guitar), Eric (rhythm and lead guitar) and Marlene (guitar, bass) form this harmonious trio that makes you wonder where all that percussion is coming from without a drummer. We just might get you tapping your feet or swing-dancing with a partner. It's been known to happen.
Wave & Circuit Presents! welcomes Ron Meissner, Bill Haffey, Micki Singer and Carla Green who will be playing some of their favorite jazz tunes in an intentional listening environment. Wave & Circuit is a small, cozy, high fidelity, intimate concert venue at 829 S. Higgins in Missoula, across from Hellgate High, in between the Game Shop and Record Heaven on Higgins. We will have guest appearances by Cousin Marlene and Rod Blackman! Doors at 7pm, Music at 7:30pm. $5 cover/person.

The aim of crosstalk is to consistently create a sound that is unique and original, unlike any other project currently on the streets. We aim to liberate ourselves as players and simultaneously come together in communion by creating interwoven strands of dialogue from multiple perspectives, intensities and styles. Our ideas and commentary as sound artists is about the now. Each of us believes strongly in the healing and spiritual force of music to reach spaces within ourselves that cannot be reached through any other medium. We hope to go there with you and hope you can join us on June 14th at Wave and Circuit.
