Tuesday, August 27, at 6:30 PM, Library Park will be the venue for Pat Loomis and his Special Guest Performers, The A-Beez, a Boston based music collective with its roots in soul, funk, and R&B. At its core are Amy and Aaron Bellamy, keyboardist and bassist, respectively. They began their musical collaboration in the early 2000s as members of the Sam Kininger band (BMG Japan recording artists) and have since backed up numerous artists, including Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Terri Lyne Carrington, Elan Trotman, Martin Luther, Cody Chestnut, The Perceptionists and Club D’elf .
In addition to touring nationally and internationally, the A-Beez are staples of the local Boston scene, hosting a more than 14 years’ residency at Boston’s renowned Wally’s Café and performing in clubs and venues throughout New England and the East coast. They co-wrote and compiled a catalog of original material that became their debut album Never Going Back, released in April 2015. Their second studio album, Say Goodbye, came out in March 2018. The A-Beez have an eclectic and original sound which draws from the traditions of funk and R&B, and is heavily influenced by jazz as well as hip hop. It includes hints of rock, country, and even classical and the lyrics are personal and honest.
