Executive SessionsHouse Red Featuring Dean Goodermote
Unbutton the white collar for Executive Sessions—an innovative concert series showcasing bands whose members include Boston-area CEOs and corporate executives returns for its fourth season.
All proceeds from the series directly support the Executive Sessions scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has outstanding musical merit, entrepreneurial promise, and demonstrated financial need. This season, we are adding 24-track recording and live web broadcast for all of our shows!
Since the series began in 2008, the stage of Cafe 939 has hosted presidents and CEOs of international corporations, an NBA club-owner, venture capitalists, investment bankers, software and biotech engineers, heart surgeons, jet pilots, pharmaceutical scientists, Emmy Award–winners, executive producers, philanthropists, board of trustees members. . . . With top student singer/songwriters opening for the bands, the diverse audience is in for a special treat! The series is booked and produced by Berklee's Mirek Vana and Tom Simons, president and creative director of communications firm PARTNERS+simons.
Featuring Dean Goodermote on bass
House Red is an eclectic band that combines classic jazz (Mingus and Parker) and rock ranging from the classic (the Doors) to the contemporary (3 Doors Down). It covers many tunes that are not often heard live, including those from the basic food groups—Smashing Pumpkins and Red Hot Chili Peppers—all sweetened with a little of Turrentine's "Sugar." The band features Marc Caruso on guitar and vocals, Dean Goodermote on bass and vocals, John Rule on drums, and George Skelly on guitar and vocals. The performance will showcase guest artists from the Berklee student and staff community. The band supplements its musician income with other gigs: Caruso, vice president of enterprise services, Data Intensity; Goodermote, chairman and CEO, Double-Take Software; Rule, director, fuel cell development, Lilliputian Systems; and Skelly, partner, Nixon Peabody.
