The Samples Concert Fundraiser

At the Wall Street Theatre
71 Wall Street
Norwalk, CT

The Samples, led by Norwalk’s own Sean Kelly, are bringing their blend of reggae-influenced rock to the historic Wall Street Theater on March 25th to benefit the Darien Arts Center. Local favorite and Darien native, Waller, opens the show at 8 p.m.   

The Samples, a band formed in Colorado in 1987, has shared the stage with big names such as The Allman Brothers BandBlues Traveler, and Phish in the early to mid 90s. On their own tours, many rising bands opened up for them including The Dave Matthews BandHootie & the Blowfish, and Lisa Loeb. Their music has been described as a cross between The Police and the Grateful Dead and their success has included television performances on The Tonight Show and House of Blues. In addition to the release of several albums, Kelly’s songs have been featured in Perks of Being a Wallflower, and more recently in television’s Younger and in ads for MSNBC’s midterm election coverage.

Waller, a popular group of kindred souls is led by James “Waller” Crafford, who was born and raised in Darien and is an alum of Darien High School's class of 2016. In addition to being a finalist in the DAC’s Darien’s Got Talent, Crawford, a multi-talented singer/songwriter, plays several instruments and writes, composes, and produces his own music. The band Waller facilitates a vibe where love is palpable and fun is guaranteed. Its sound is characterized by raw expressive vocals and vintage guitar tones. This well-loved group is high on life and knows how to rock and roll, leaving audiences with nothing to do but smile.
