Thanks to all of the bands, venues, and most importantly, the folks who contributed to End 68 Hours of Hunger last Saturday night at tour first-ever Dover Revolver! The event raised over $1500 to fight the battle against hunger among school-aged, financially-challenged children, whose often only source of food comes from the meals they receive at school. Thanks again for your generosity and kindness. See you next year!Share on Facebook Read More
This Saturday, May 2, The Reconstructed will host the First Annual Dover Revolver, a benefit for End 68 Hours of Hunger.

Venues are: 7th Settlement Brewery, Fury’s Publick House, Cinco de Mayo, Dover Brickhouse, Dover Chop Shop, and Sonny’s Tavern. Music starts at 7:30 PM and goes until 12:30 AM. Donations are $5 at each venue, or for $10 you can purchase a wristband to get you into all six. Media inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org.Share on Facebook Read More
We entered this competition in January, and although we didn’t win, we were chosen to represent New Hampshire in their Tiny Desk Concert “50 States Montage.” This is a song off our upcoming release (Dawn Chorus) entitled Diamond Shine.Share on Facebook Read More
This song was a sheer turning point for the band, as it represent our first true collaboration in terms of arrangement and composition. It also demonstrated a distinct shift away from our mostly folk leanings, pushing us into the rock realm for the first time in The Reconstructed’s history. I penned the lyrics to this song after passing a lemonade stand in North Berwick, ME (which was fashioned from an old tiki bar). One of the names on the stand was “Caspian.” I’ve always dug that name, so naturally the first line in the song was “we named you after the sea…” The song, however, takes a tragic turn.

Over Labor Day weekend, The Reconstructed trio (Courtney, Jesse, and Martin) performed two shows on Saturday, August 30 at the Third Annual Boothbay Harbor Fest. In the process, we took home the People’s Choice Award for Best Band out of 23 bands that played over three days! Thanks to all who came out to see us and vote at both the Fisherman’s Wharf and Capers! Hope to see you all again next year!Share on Facebook Read More
