Electrifying audiences wherever they perform, The Knot has been at the forefront of improvisational rock and roll for many years. Their marathon sets of 90 minutes or more are packed with a variety of musical styles and extended jams. They enjoy playing creative, high energy music that is sure to keep everyone dancing. They mix original compositions with the music of classic artists like The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, The Band, Traffic, Little Feat, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, Steely Dan, The Who and many others.
In 1997, The Knot released their first CD of all original material called “Slip Into Somewhere”. The CD features 11 original Knot songs recorded at Knot Studios with engineer Rod Libby (who worked live and in the studio with Joe Cocker on all those gold records). The band is currently working on their next CD of original material, recording basic tracks at Wellspring Studios.
The band has received many favorable reviews in newspapers and magazines including Relix Magazine, The Boston Globe, Boston and Worcester Phoenix, The Worcester Telegram, Worcester Magazine, The Boston Journal, and The Tab. The Knot was voted “Best Local Groove/Jam Act” in the Worcester Phoenix’s 1997 & 1998 music polls.
