The Well, based in Norwalk, CT., formed in the fall of 2001, and was originally setup as a quartet. Old friends Pete Stuart and Trent Lewis came in as the guitar players of the band, with Paul Bellucci as the drummer and Max Squire on the bass.
The Well has always made its artistic focus live shows. Their concerts range from boot shaking blues, cow tipping country, soul elevating improvised rock, to grovin’ reggae.
For The Well its about not only making sure the audience has a great time, but taking the audience to different places, to a higher place if only for a while.
Four years ago, original drummer Paul Bellucci exploded in a Bizarre gardening accident, and was reincarnated in Pennsyltucky. The Group was lucky to find Los Story to fill the spot. Great Look, good Drummah. In addition Max’s brother Bill Squire joined the Well on the Keys in 2011.
The Well has been playing live in the Connecticut and NYC region for the past eight years. Over that time they have built a dedicated fan base. Playing for such a long period has made their musical interplay second nature; the type of synchronicity that only comes from many years of working together. With the release of their 2nd album of original material they are looking to spread their music further.
The bands original tunes are a product of their diverse musical interests and love of improvisational
jamming. October Sessions focus is on songwriting, not instrumental solos for their own sake, but improvised musical passages to support the song structure. Their sound could perhaps be described as a mix of country, blues, rock, and funk, usually not fitting in any one realm for too long.
The songwriting topics on the October Sessions range from tales of outlaws, to hurricane Katrina’s
aftermath, to lost love and redemption.
The Well is currently available to book for either electric or acoustic performances.
