Besides Jim’s great guitar playing, Doug Plavin on Drums and Guy Devito on Bass. These long-time Valley music luminaries play with the best: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Steppenwolf, Stevie Wonder, Fat, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, The Weepies, Tracy Grammer, Susan Werner, Eliza Gilkyson.

When they're not on the road putting the sparkle on someone else's star The Surly Temple get together and play the music they love; some original, some by artists you know, some you don't. With rotating lead vocal duties, the "Temple" is where these guys go to take center stage and shine on their own with the emphasis on great songs and deep grooves. Top-shelf musical chops and tight arrangements add up to a fun night of music that'll tickle your ear and make your feet a good way.

Curt Bessette has performed all over the USA in concerts, clubs, hotels and schools. Curt was a finalist in the song writing competitions at the Kerrville (Texas) Folk Festival, the Falcon Ridge (New York) Festival and the Napa Valley (CA) Folk Festival. Curt has released four CDs of his original songs. Known for his engaging stage presence and sense of humor, Curt has been a "regular" on the New England music scene.

These days he performs with his wife, Jenn Kurtz. Jenn is an amazing harmony singer and adds more energy and dynamics to the stage act. In addition to the regular gigs, Curt and Jenn have created a program called "A FEW SECONDS WITH OUR FATHERS" This is a tribute to WWII veterans and families, including Curt's father who was also a WWII vet. This show features Curt's original songs about the war years, plus several popular cover songs from that era.
