Far From Eden History
Multi-talented musician Dave Bourdeau plays both drums and guitar, and he decided to be a drummer for a band. He enlisted his friend, Tina Pugilese Savage, to be the singer. Tina had previously performed for several years in the band “Aged to Perfection” with bass player Bob See. Then along came drummer Ed Scholz and Dave switched to take on lead guitar.

Voila! Far From Eden was born!

Far From Eden’s first gig was played in 2005 at a benefit gig in Oxford. For a few years they were joined by Nelson Hamlin in lead guitar, but they are again a four-piece band.

Far From Eden enjoys gigs of all styles. They’ve played nearly every year of the Singletary Rod & Gun Club Bands for Benefit, only missing one. They’ve played the Lucky Dog in Worcester. They’ve played the KasBar, Padavano’s, Newton Square, SAC Park, Halligan’s, Sterling Gazebo, Carter’s, Bay View, the Flying Rhino, the Center Bar & Grill, the Wheelock Inn, the Cannery Music Hall, and much, much more. They play house parties and bars, graduations and weddings, and much more throughout New England.
