the Mass Avenaires

Hey we’re back with another season on the outside patio at the Phoenix Landing in Central Square – now featuring Mark Wholley on guitar and vocals and occasional special guest Bob Metzger on lead guitar. If its pleasant enough to sit and drink outside, we’ll be there…


We are an acoustic quartet from Cambridge, MA. After gathering to jam weekly for a few months in our 2021 COVID bubble, we were asked to play a gig on the outdoor deck of the Phoenix Landing on Mass Avenue in Central Square in Cambridge. That gig led to a weekly engagement and the Mass Avenaires were born.

We add our own twist to a wide variety of traditional tunes, standards, and more contemporary songs from the likes of Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, Warren Zevon, and Merle Haggard. Plus the occasional original song or two.
