About Us


Far From Eden History
Multi-talented musician Dave Bourdeau plays both drums and guitar, and he decided to be a drummer for a band. He enlisted his friend, Tina Pugilese Savage, to be the singer. Tina had previously performed for several years in the band “Aged to Perfection” with bass player Bob See. Then along came drummer Ed Scholz and Dave switched to take on lead guitar.

Voila! Far From Eden was born!

Far From Eden’s first gig was played in 2005 at a benefit gig in Oxford.

Far From Eden enjoys gigs of all styles. They’ve played the Lucky Dog in Worcester. They’ve played the KasBar, Padavano’s, Newton Square, SAC Park, Halligan’s, Sterling Gazebo, Carter’s, Bay View, the Flying Rhino, the Center Bar & Grill, the Wheelock Inn, the Cannery Music Hall, and much, much more. They play house parties and bars, graduations and weddings, and much more throughout New England.

Hot Dish / Acoustic
For a quieter, more low key event, Far From Eden is available in their Hot Dish arrangement. In this setup Dave and Tina play guitar-with-duet-vocals. Perfect for a cafe or evening on a patio! A few of the places they’ve played in this configuration are The Canal, Blackstone National Golf Course, Uno’s, and the Old Time Inn.

  1. Dave, met you at VegFest. I see you’ve played White Eagle. Little Levity is playing there May 12 (opening for Playback at 8PM) – maybe you can make it. If you have an email list, I’d like to be kept informed of where Far from Eden will be playing

    I am reaching out on the behalf of the Town of Bolton (MA) Parks & Recreation Commission.
    We are interested in having live music performed at our Town Common this summer. This would be an outdoor performance in the late afternoon/early evening.
    Here are the dates available: 7/29, 8/5, 8/12
    Please let me know if the band is interested and what the total cost would be.
    Thanks for your time!
