Scene & Heard by J.L. Stevens

Scene & Heard
By J.L. Stevens

All in the familyYou gotta love myspace, it can give you some of the most candid quotes about performers. Such as this one for Gina Catalino, the sister half of Rye native siblings Justin and Gina Catalino, who will perform at Muddy River Smokehouse in Portsmouth on Sunday, July 16. Posted on July 4, "Charles" says, "My word; Babelicious and talented, a double threat!" After listening to Gina's "I Believe," and viewing her beachwear on, we would have to agree. They say she sounds like Sarah McLachlan meets Lauryn Hill.And Justin's not too shabby either. A 2005 New Music Weekly "Best New Artist" nominee, his songs have been heard on the "90210" for the younger set, "The OC." The Catalinos will be sharing a stage for the first time in their hometown, and since one sibling (Gina) regularly performs at The Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, and the other's Web site ( says he's based in So. Cal, it's fair to say this may be the last time we see them at this particular venue. Each will perform a set of original music beginning at 6 p.m., there is no cover for this 21 plus evening of acoustic music.
