Trace Bundy

Genre:
Doors: 6:30PM
Show: 7:30PM

Internationally-acclaimed guitar virtuoso Trace Bundy must be seen, not just heard. His music is poetry in motion, using harmonics, looping, multiple capos, and his unique banter and stage presence to deliver an unforgettable live concert experience. Listening to his intricate arrangements is one thing, but seeing the fan-dubbed ?Acoustic Ninja? play live confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers. Bundy?s unique career has brought him across the world, with sold-out concerts in 26 countries and counting ? from high-tech performance halls in South Korea and Italy, to remote villages in Zimbabwe and Guatemala. He has independently sold over 99,000 albums on his record label, Honest Ninja Music. His video clips circulate virally at astonishing speed, with over 35,000,000 YouTube views to date. Trace was named ?Most Promising New Talent? of 2008 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, as well as winning third place in the magazine?s ?Best Fingerstyle Guitarist? category the same year. Over his many years of touring, Trace has shared the stage with Brandi Carlile, Olivia Newton-John, Neko Case, Judy Collins, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Phil Keaggy, David Wilcox, David Knopfler (Dire Straits), Bill Nershi (String Cheese), Laurence Juber (Paul McCartney & Wings), Chris Hillman (the Byrds), and Stanley Jordan, among others. Jimmy Leslie at Guitar Player Magazine blogs ?It was easy to see why Bundy plays bigger venues on each tour. In his hands, the acoustic guitar is an imagination station, and there was no telling where he is going take the audience at any given turn. Thrilling stuff.? Dave Kirby from the Boulder Weekly says ?Possessing a staggering acoustic technique, on both right and left sides, Bundy has made his reputation as a next generation solo guitarist of serious repute.? Audiocast Magazine from Austin, TX agrees: ?Bundy?s live show is without a doubt an event that needs to be witnessed rather than told about. With such a jaw-dropping performance, Bundy?s live concert is a slap in the face that would leave a palm print on the memory of everyone in the audience.? Take a minute to check him out and you?ll agree that Trace Bundy must be seen, not just heard.

Show: 7:00PM

REMAINING GOLD LEVEL SEATS ARE PARTIALLY BLOCKED VIEW AND SOLD AT A DISCOUNT

Marcus Miller ? a two-time GRAMMY Award winner and UNESCO Artist for Peace ? is not only an exceptional musician ? a multi-instrumentalist and world-renowned bassist ? but also a highly-gifted composer and producer. The legendary Tutu album he wrote and produced for Miles Davis sealed his international fame when Miller was only twenty-five. Since then he has continued collaborating with artists as varied and talented as Eric Clapton, George Benson, Luther Vandross, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Jay-Z, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Brian Ferry and Herbie Hancock (to name only a few). At the same time, he has produced his own albums, among them The Sun Don't Lie, M2, Silver Rain, Free, A Night in Monte Carlo (with the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra), and Renaissance, giving him occasion to tour internationally with young musicians whose talents he's recognized (as Miles did for him, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and others). You can hear Miller's radio show Miller Time every Sunday night on SiriusXM's RealJazz. Marcus' new project Afrodeezia?which was inspired by Miller's role as a UNESCO Artist For Peace and spokesperson for the organization's Slave Route Project?was recorded in locations around the world including Morocco, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, New Orleans and Los Angeles, and features a wide range of guests including rapper Chuck D., vocalist Lalah Hathaway, keyboardist Robert Glasper, trumpeters Etienne Charles and Ambrose Akinmusire, guitarists Keb' Mo' and Wah Wah Watson, bassist/producer Mocean Worker, organist Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy), and cellist Ben Hong, as well as musicians from Africa, South America and the Caribbean. Miller's core band includes saxophonist Alex Han, trumpeter Lee Hogans, pianist Brett Williams, guitarist Adam Agati, and drummer Louis Cato. "It was after visiting the House of Slaves on Gorée Island that I composed "Gorée," explains Miller, referring to the powerful track featured on his previous album Renaissance. "Onstage I felt the need to say what I had been feeling in Senegal. I wanted people to understand that this tune spoke not only of the slave tragedy but, through the music especially, that these people who suddenly found themselves at the bottom of a ship's hold had discovered a way to survive, and were able in time to transform their distress into joy. Shortly after my trip to Gorée, UNESCO named me an Artist for Peace, and made me the spokesperson for the Slave Route Project. That was when I started thinking about Afrodeezia." "The power of music has no limits," states Miller. "Through spirituals, jazz and soul we were able to preserve our history, because all the rest had been erased. What I wanted most was to go back to the source of the rhythms that make our musical heritage so rich, to follow them like footprints from their beginnings in Africa all the way to the United States. That journey took us from Mali to Paris, from New Orleans to Sao Paulo and across the Caribbean." "For this project, I collaborated with musicians from West Africa, South America, the Caribbean, the southern U.S. and the large northern cities of the U.S. This is my way of paying tribute to the long journey of my African ancestors who became African-Americans. The melodies and rhythms they carried with them from Africa have EXPLODED into a 'dizzying' array of musical styles and genres that have changed the world."

In the 25 years since the release of his self-titled solo debut album, saxophonist Dave Koz has received nine GRAMMY® nominations, had nine No. 1 albums on Billboard?s Current Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, toured the world and been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Reflecting on his extraordinary career, Dave decided to celebrate the milestone with a different kind of retrospective album. ?From the beginning, collaborations have been a special source of inspiration to me. I wanted to shine a light on that process and share these recordings, which feature some of my favorite artists,? said Dave Koz. Collaborations: 25th Anniversary Collection, Koz?s latest album on Concord Records, features three brand new tracks ? ?Good Foot? with Jeff Lorber, ?(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher? with Kenny Lattimore and Rick Braun and ?Let It Go?

In the course of his career, Koz has also played with such artists as Burt Bacharach, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Shelby Lynne, Kenny Loggins, U2 and Michael McDonald. A platinum-selling artist, he is also known as a humanitarian, entrepreneur, radio host and instrumental music advocate.

David Sanborn Website
David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album.

School of Rock Tribute to The British Invasion

Genre: Rock/Tribute
Doors: 3:00PM
Show: 4:00PM

Since in the mid-1960s, audiences of the U.S. have been captivated by an armada of rock groups hailing from across the pond in the U.K., beginning with the first of 3 waves in the "British Invasion.” Brandishing a tone and image heavily influenced by the rebellious rock n' roll acts of the American 1950s, the English put their own edgy yet sophisticated spin on the same defiant youthful attitude. Cultivating a raucous new sound and unprecedented fandom at live concerts, bands such as The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, and The Beatles led the charge on legions of American. The 70's and 80's saw the 2nd wave headed by groups such as The Clash, The Sex Pistols, and The Police blending rock and pop styles into a sound that permeated the western popular music scene. The late 80's and 90's brought the 3rd wave as Oasis, Radiohead, and their many contemporaries continued to inspire, innovate, and establish a heavy presence in modern rock music. Join the ranks of redcoats and surrender your sound to the British Invasion!

Blues Caravan 2016 Feat. Layla Zoe, Tasha Taylor & Ina Forsman

Genre: Blues
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Now in its 12th triumphant year, the Blues Caravan is a touring showcase for the hottest young acts on the Ruf label. With past treks helping launch stars including Joanne Shaw Taylor, Laurence Jones and Samantha Fish, it?s a springboard for the blues scene?s next-big-things, and a magnet for fans who want to catch them before lift-off. In 2016, we?ve got a Blues Caravan lineup sure to raise the roof each night as it rolls across the USA and Europe. The Blue Sisters are doing it for themselves? Layla Zoe is ready to explode. Like her early influences ? from Bob Dylan to Muddy Waters ? the Canadian bandleader is a fearless writer, earning victory in 2006?s auspicious Blues Compo songwriting competition, and critical acclaim for albums including 2013?s The Lily. For the Blues Caravan 2016, Layla will be drawing on the best of her catalogue, previewing this year?s new release, and leaving it all on the stage. ?With live performances,? she explains, ?I believe that the more raw and uncensored I am, the more I can connect with my listeners.? When Ina Forsman steps up the mic, you?ll believe every word. The Finnish vocalist hit the radar aged 17 with a show-stopping rendition of Etta James?s ?All I Could Do Was Cry? on a TV talent show. Since then, she?s achieved international recognition, guesting with blues heavyweights Helge Tallqvist and Guy Verlinde on the road, touring mainland Europe and proving her own songwriting chops with her self-penned and fiercely personal material. When Ina hits the stage, all bets are off. ?I rarely plan anything,? she says, ?so what happens on the stage, just happens.? Tasha Taylor has the blues in her blood. The youngest daughter of R&B trailblazer and Stax icon Johnnie Taylor, she inherited his musical talent, but walked her own path, studying drama at Boston University before lighting up hit TV shows including Ugly Betty and House. The pull of music proved too strong, however, and having composed soundtracks for shows like Men In Trees and Lipstick Jungle, Tasha broke through with Taylormade: the album whose self-penned, sharply observed material pinballed from early soul single ?Queen? to the redemptive gospel of ?I Got Love?. She?ll start the Blues Caravan as a hot tip ? and end it as a world-class contender.

Terry Bozzio Composer Series

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Los Angeles - Legendary & award winning melodic drummer, Terry Bozzio is releasing worldwide, what he calls a ?Life's Work? project of Art & Music on the Japanese label Ward Records in December 2015. Bozzio is embarking on a world tour to promote it starting in Japan and Europe in the fall of 2015 & continuing throughout the US & other territories in 2016. Terry has worked with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Korn, UK, Missing Persons, Mick Jagger, Robbie Robertson, Alan Holdsworth, Tony Levin, Steve Vai, Quincy Jones, Ken Scott, Metropole Orkest, SMAP, Loudness' Munetaka Higuchi & ?X? Japan's Hide - as well as Film score composers Basil Poledouris, Mark Isham & Patrick O'Hearn - see more at www.terrybozzio.com - Grammy winner, RockWalk Honoree, Modern Drummer magazine's Hall of Fame Award, Rolling Stone's Top 5 Drummers of All Time! Says Bozzio, ?I've been composing, (not just song writing, like for Missing Persons & Jeff Beck) since the '70s. I compose in all styles (as one might classify them), from classical to ambient, electronic, film-like to fusion/rock or jazz. I have my own character or personality, it's unique. I work with many different processes from writing notes on paper, to recording live, to several different computer software applications I may use, that are suited to the particular result I am trying to achieve. Both Zappa & famed musicologist Nicolas Slonimsky encouraged me to compose & I have had my Chamberworks performed at the Vienna Jazz Festival & in Holland w/Metropol Orkest.? He continued, ?I first got interested in Art & Sketching at the encouragement of renowned artist Don Van Vliet (aka: Captain Beefheart) who I played with on my first Zappa/Mothers of Invention tour in 1975. Don was always carrying markers & paper & it looked like fun, so I bought some myself & started. He was very encouraging. Last year, I released my first project called Rhythm & Sketch in collaboration with the art group Scene Four. It's been successful & inspired me to do more. (available at www.terrybozzioart.com)?

Terry Bozzio Composer Series

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Los Angeles - Legendary & award winning melodic drummer, Terry Bozzio is releasing worldwide, what he calls a ?Life's Work? project of Art & Music on the Japanese label Ward Records in December 2015. Bozzio is embarking on a world tour to promote it starting in Japan and Europe in the fall of 2015 & continuing throughout the US & other territories in 2016. Terry has worked with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Korn, UK, Missing Persons, Mick Jagger, Robbie Robertson, Alan Holdsworth, Tony Levin, Steve Vai, Quincy Jones, Ken Scott, Metropole Orkest, SMAP, Loudness' Munetaka Higuchi & ?X? Japan's Hide - as well as Film score composers Basil Poledouris, Mark Isham & Patrick O'Hearn - see more at www.terrybozzio.com - Grammy winner, RockWalk Honoree, Modern Drummer magazine's Hall of Fame Award, Rolling Stone's Top 5 Drummers of All Time! Says Bozzio, ?I've been composing, (not just song writing, like for Missing Persons & Jeff Beck) since the '70s. I compose in all styles (as one might classify them), from classical to ambient, electronic, film-like to fusion/rock or jazz. I have my own character or personality, it's unique. I work with many different processes from writing notes on paper, to recording live, to several different computer software applications I may use, that are suited to the particular result I am trying to achieve. Both Zappa & famed musicologist Nicolas Slonimsky encouraged me to compose & I have had my Chamberworks performed at the Vienna Jazz Festival & in Holland w/Metropol Orkest.? He continued, ?I first got interested in Art & Sketching at the encouragement of renowned artist Don Van Vliet (aka: Captain Beefheart) who I played with on my first Zappa/Mothers of Invention tour in 1975. Don was always carrying markers & paper & it looked like fun, so I bought some myself & started. He was very encouraging. Last year, I released my first project called Rhythm & Sketch in collaboration with the art group Scene Four. It's been successful & inspired me to do more. (available at www.terrybozzioart.com)? Terry Bozzio fulfilled a major 2 &1/2 month US solo tour in 2014 in which he displayed his art as a stage set while performing melodic, tuned melodies on his strikingly large drum set, to sold out crowds. ?I thought it would be great to share this music which I?ve been working on & keeping to myself for so long.

Bob Schneider

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

Austin-based singer/songwriter/creative force of nature Bob Schneider has a guy in his band, Oliver Steck, who plays keyboards, accordion, trumpet and assorted whistles and horns. Also, Schneider notes, "Oliver also does a lot of dancing. He doesn't necessarily get paid for the dancing. He does it because he can't not." Apparently, the same could be said of Schneider in terms of artistic endeavors in general. He can't not be creating something. Sometimes it's writing songs ? he has written some 2,000 songs in the past 16 years ? sometimes it's creating videos to accompany some of those songs and sometimes it's making gallery-ready art, including paintings and collages. He also has played a wedding singer in an indie film, written two books and penned a rock opera that has a title that can't be printed in a family newspaper. Some of his musical mates even wonder when ? or whether ? he ever sleeps. "I love making things, so that's what I spend a lot of my time doing," says Schneider? "I do have periods where I feel like I'll never create anything that's any good ever again. The good news is, it doesn't stop me from creating things, and eventually that feeling will pass and I can look over the stuff that I've made and figure out which of it is better than the other stuff. Because I like to do it so much, I'll end up with quite a bit of it at the end of the year." Schneider has been a recording artist for 25 years, putting out his first record ("Party Till You're Dead") in 1991 as frontman for Joe Rockhead, a funk-rock combo in the vein of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That band was followed by his best-known group, Ugly Americans, which toured with the Dave Matthews Band and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Ugly Americans was a kind of alt-rock supergroup, with former members of Cracker, Poi Dog Pondering and Mojo Nixon's band. Schneider also fronted a full-on funk ensemble that played around Austin in the late 1990s called The Scabs, at the same time he was establishing himself as a solo artist. His first solo project, "Songs Sung and Played on Guitar at the Same Time," came out in 1998, and he's gone on to record an almost inconceivably diverse and eclectic array of songs since then, with his work making it onto the soundtracks of seven major motion pictures (and one indie film). All told, Schneider has been the singer and main songwriter on nearly 30 studio albums, and he has been named Musician of the Year six times at the Austin Music Awards. Considering the renowned strength of the music scene in Austin, that's saying something. His artistry coupled with his movie-star looks and boyish charm makes it a wonder he's not a household name around the rest of the country the way he is in Austin. His prodigious musical output is a result of a songwriting challenge group he started 16 years ago while touring. At first, the challenge was to write one song a day, and the people doing the writing were on the tour bus with him. They'd come up with a title each morning and at the end of the day play the songs they came up with for each other. The pace of the songwriting challenge has eased up substantially since its beginnings, going to one song a week, but the scope of the participation in the group has widened to include a lot of widely known musicians. "We've had lots of famous folks in the game from time to time, but they usually don't last very long," Schneider says. "The exception would be Jason Mraz, who has been in the game on and off for six or seven years and is one of the most consistent songwriters in the group. Very talented and will always turn a song in. At the end of the day, though, I really only have the group as a motivation to get me to write a song each week. Otherwise, a month might go by without writing anything and that would be a shame." The past few years, Schneider has grouped the songs he's written in a year under an album title, just to kind of keep track of when they were written. Titles for recent years have included "Here's the Deal," "The Ever Increasing Need to Succeed," "Into the Great Unknown" and "Mental Problems." This year's theme (and the name of his current concert tour) is "The Practical Guide to Everything." Schneider has a fantastic website where fans can listen to all of the songs from the three five-song "King Kong Suite" EPs he released last year, with humorous commentary from Schneider himself between songs. The website also has the 10 videos he created for "King Kong" songs using public-domain found footage, including the menacing "Black Mountain" video that culls scenes from Francis Ford Coppola's directorial debut. The website also offers a chance to stream his regular Monday evening shows at Austin's Saxon Pub. "The Saxon Pub shows are unique in the fact that I play a lot of material there that I don't play anywhere else," Schneider explains. "New stuff that I wrote that week or in the last few weeks. Really old material that we haven't played in a while. I hardly play any of the stuff that you'll hear on the road, which is a mix of the best of everything. The best new material alongside the best of my last 20 years of writing songs." ?He has an almost Dylanesque reputation for keeping things fresh, with shows so different from one another that for years he [has] recorded every show and?[sold] copies for people to purchase right after the show. "I play a lot of cities twice a year, and I like the fact that a lot of my fans will come see me play every time I come to town, knowing that I'll be playing material they've never seen me perform and might not ever perform again," Schneider says. "I don't have any of the banter planned either, so that stuff is usually unique to that night as well. It keeps things fresh for me and allows me to play crowd favorites that I've been playing for years, but still makes the whole thing feel new overall for me and hopefully for the audience."

Rachelle Ferrell

Genre: Jazz/R&B
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

Rachelle Ferrell is unquestionably one of the most dynamic talents in contemporary pop music. Very few vocal artists in the industry have Ferrell's potent combination of range, phrasing, and musicianship. Ferrell first emerged in the states with her R&B debut Rachelle Ferrell (1992), a solid collection of self-penned originals that featured a striking duet with Will Downing ("Nothing Has Ever Felt Like This"). It was with the release of First Instrument in 1994 (recorded prior to Rachelle Ferrell) that audiences were really introduced to Ferrell's jazz sensibilities. Rachelle Ferrell began singing at the age of six, which many speculate contributed to the "development of her startling six and change octave range." Her range also includes the ability to sing in the whistle register, as stated in an editorial review in which she references her highest notes in "It only took a minute" as "Minnie Riperton-like wailing". She received classical training in violin at an early age and by the time she was a teen, she was able to play the piano at a professional level. She enrolled in Berklee College of Music in Boston where she honed her musical abilities in arrangement, singing and songwriting. From 1975-90, Ferrell sang backup for Lou Rawls, Patti LaBelle, Vanessa Williams, and George Duke. Ferrell's debut, First Instrument, was released in 1990 in Japan, five years prior to its US release. Recorded with bassist Tyrone Brown, pianist Eddie Green and drummer Doug Nally, an all-star cast of accompanists also leave their mark on her record. They include trumpeter Terence Blanchard, pianists Gil Goldstein and Michel Petrucciani, bassists Kenny Davis and Stanley Clarke, tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter and keyboardist Pete Levin. Her unique take on now-standards like Sam Cooke's "You Send Me", Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love", and Rodgers & Hart's "My Funny Valentine", captured the hearts and souls of the Japanese jazz buying public.

Raul Midon

Genre: R&B/Soul
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Raul Midón has earned renown as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. He is "a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus," according to The New York Times. Midón has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder, along with contributing to recordings by Jason Mraz, Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee's She Hate Me. The New Mexico native, blind since birth, has released seven albums since 1999, including the hit studio productions State of Mind (Manhattan/EMI, 2005), A World Within a World (Manhattan/EMI, 2007) and Synthesis (Decca/Universal, 2009). Midón's most recent release is the captivating CD/DVD Invisible Chains ? Live from NYC. Attuned listeners can hear the inspirations of Donny Hathaway and Richie Havens in his work, as well as Sting and Paul Simon. But Midón's questing musicality makes him, as the Huffington Post put it, "a free man beyond category." A vibrant presence on screen, Midón can be seen in the documentary on Hancock's star-studded album Possibilities, and he is featured collaborating with soul icon Bill Withers in the documentary Still Bill. Midón has also demonstrated his progressive techniques by performing for the series of "TED Talks." Ever since being told by some when he was a child that his blindness meant that "you can't do this, you can't do that," Midón has lived a life devoted to shattering stereotypes. His forthcoming album has the singer-guitarist adding producer-engineer to his portfolio of talents, with special computer software for the blind enabling him to engineer sessions on his own in his home studio. This project ? which includes collaborations with Withers, R&B singer-songwriter Lizz Wright, Cameroonian jazz bassist Richard Bona and Grammy-winning jazz singer Dianne Reeves ? underscores why People magazine called Midón "an eclectic adventurist."

Longtime fans and new converts alike will revel in the group's signature twin-guitar mastery and powerhouse rhythm section as they present classics spanning their career and showcase selections from their latest studio release, Blue Horizon. Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash is led by Powell on guitar and vocals, trading licks with Finnish guitar master Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, an 18-year veteran of the band, sets the pace with Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain's new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson. Through the years the band has delved into various musical genres, from folk, blues and jazz to pedal-to-the-metal rock and electronica. Whatever the style, Wishbone Ash's hallmark is the distinctive twin-melodic lead guitar interplay that has influenced such bands as Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden and, more recently, Opeth.

The idea of The Sax Pack originated in 2004 with saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa after he saw a movie about the "Rat Pack," a group of legendary entertainers led by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. Inspired by their showmanship and camaraderie, Kashiwa came up with the name The Sax Pack and called on some of his saxophone peers and started a new group that would feature the instrument, as well as their collective musical passion for jazz, funk and R&B. Backed by a tight rhythm section, the talented trio combine their life-long love of music and their passion for performance, to make an impact on audiences that love music as much as they do. Committed to sharing the excitement, spontaneity and creative energy that flows between them on stage, The Sax Pack inspires an audience far beyond the duration of a show. The well-known saxophonists are excited to create a show that combines their individual styles and diverse backgrounds for a fresh approach to the music that inspired them all to become musicians: jazz. Highlights of the tour will feature original music written specifically for The Sax Pack , as well as each sax player's signature hits and the classic funk, R&B and jazz tunes that will get fans out of their seats.

Joseph Arthur

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

For every song Joseph Arthur has released in a critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated career that has spanned nine full-length albums and 11 EPs, he's probably kept three others in the vault for safekeeping. Indeed, Arthur has been known to start working on a new album ? or two ? while simultaneously trying to finish another. It was amid this abundance of riches that the Brooklyn-by way of Ohio-native began molding a collection of music under a single narrative thread: The Ballad of Boogie Christ, described by Arthur as "a fictionalized character loosely based on my own journey." At first, it was a song here or there, or a set of lyrics with no accompanying music. Then, those songs would get recorded and set aside. They'd get re-recorded and revised. They'd start to make sense in relation to their brothers and sisters, and then they wouldn't. And pretty soon, more than half-a-decade had flown by and Boogie Christ was no closer to coherency. "For some reason, I've been avoiding finishing this record for a long time," Arthur says with a laugh. "It's been an albatross around my neck. I don't know why, but it has." Yet despite its labored birth, The Ballad of Boogie Christ has defied the odds to become another essential cornerstone of Arthur's robust discography. Encompassing sessions put to tape in upstate New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Arthur's own Brooklyn studio, the 11-song album showcases the artist's signature rich storytelling set to a diverse range of rock'n'roll. "I don't know that there's a beginning, middle and end to the story, but there are definitely experiences, situations and perspectives that point in those directions," says Arthur. "I wanted to let the listener fill in some of the blanks without telling the whole story in a straight-ahead way." The album begins with the surprising orchestral pop of "Currency of Love", on which Arthur unveils a passionate croon unlike any vocal performance he's ever given. From there, Boogie Christ offers epic affirmations on overcoming addiction (the seven-minute closer "All the Old Heroes"), anthems of open-hearted solidarity ("Wait for Your Lights", "It's OK To Be Young/Gone") and the kinds of slow-burning narratives ("Famous Friends Along the Coast", "I Used To Know How to Walk on Water" and a reimagined, hymn-like version of his standout, "I Miss the Zoo") that have won Arthur a legion of fans around the globe. Songs like "Black Flowers", "I Used To Know How to Walk on Water" and the title cut were recorded several years ago with help from the Band's legendary keyboardist Garth Hudson and bassist Catherine Popper (Ryan Adams, Jack White), while newer additions to the track list such as "Currency of Love" and "Saint of Impossible Causes" were crafted in Los Angeles with assistance from Chris Seefried (Fitz & the Tantrums, Lana Del Rey). Among the other guests on Boogie Christ are Ben Harper (Arthur's bandmate in Fistful of Mercy), session drummer extraordinaire Jim Keltner, Joan As Policewoman leader Joan Wasser and composer Paul Cantelon (Oliver Stone's W., Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell & the Butterfly). "There are certain moments on the album that are just pop music and sugary," Arthur says. "I didn't want it to be this diatribe of heaviness, and it had been like that sometimes. I definitely wanted moments of relief within it, where you just get a good jam." At the center of the project is the autobiographical "King of Cleveland," a classic story song that connects Boogie Christ the character with Arthur the flesh-and-blood artist. On it, the narrator apprentices alongside a big fish in a small pond, "playing blues in the back seats, from biker bars to limousines" ? much like Arthur did in his early professional career in Northeast Ohio. Says Arthur, "He's just starting to live the life he's imagined, playing roots boogie in the real America ? Ohio." "I've heard David Bowie talk about how Ziggy Stardust and some other records were the beginnings of screenplays that he just never finished," he says. "I could really see this becoming something deeper and bigger than just an album. "Chuck Prophet reminded me that there's always the Great American Novel," he continues. "And that really stuck in my head about Boogie Christ. That's what I've been wanting to achieve with this album. He encouraged me that it was okay to dream big."

Mike Peters of The Alarm

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

"Give Me Love, Give Me Hope, Give Me Strength" ? The opening words from The Alarm's 1985 UK/US Top 40 hit song 'Strength' which gave its name to the band's career best selling album that celebrates it's 30th anniversary in 2015. Following on from the hugely popular 'Declaration Tour 2014', Mike Peters one man band 'Alarm' concept will present 'Strength' in a similar contemporary style featuring performance, stories and images to honor the legacy the album left on the decade it helped define and the continuing significance it holds for listeners who can still relate to it's timeless themes of love, hope and strength. The Alarm's debut album 'Declaration' was powered by unique electro-acoustic guitars that by the time of the follow up 'Strength', had evolved into a much fuller arena rock sound that paralleled U2 and Springsteen's E Street Band in its scope and ambition. A sound that would see The Alarm break North America on a grand scale and peak with a live appearance before an audience of 26,000 fans at a concert in Los Angeles watched by millions around the world via MTV's first ever live satellite broadcast. Packed with powerful yet personal songs like the autobiographical 'Spirit Of '76' and 'Walk Forever By My Side', 'Strength' went on to become The Alarm's best selling album of the 1980's charting in the Top 40 on both sides of the Atlantic. This is The Alarm record that brings together for the first time, the aforementioned themes of love, hope and strength now so synonymous with Mike Peters and his long running battle against cancer. Two times cancer survivor Mike Peters is fast emerging as one of the most visible advocates and activists for those living with and beating cancer around the world. Over the last four years, his Love Hope Strength Foundation has found over 1500 potentially life saving bone marrow donor matches; built the first ever children's cancer center in Tanzania; supported the Bhaktapur Cancer Center in Nepal with life saving equipment and registered over 90,000 donors through it's 'Get On the List' program. By turning rock concerts into lifesaving events, more than 10,000 international recording artists including Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, Frank Turner and The Drop Kick Murphys now support the charity by allowing bone marrow registries at their concerts. Although Peters, is constantly fighting the illness himself (he may ultimately need a bone marrow transplant), he refuses to stop performing. Continually mixing his role as cancer advocate and musician by leading fundraising treks around the Globe and addressing delegates at the World Cancer Congress in Melbourne, Australia in December. "Thousands of people from around the world die every year simply because they can't find a match. The match is out there for everyone; they just have not been found. That is our life mission - seeing that everyone that needs a donor has one. It's that simple! Equally simple is the process - a simple cotton swab of the cheek - to get on the registry and then, if you are lucky enough to become a donor for someone suffering from blood cancer, the next step is a simple out patient procedure. Most people don't know this and it is our job to get the message out to as many as possible," says Peters. Peters inspirational story and musical exploits to perform awareness raising concerts at altitude on mountains such as Everest and Kilimanjaro (all while undergoing bi-monthly chemotherapy sessions), will be the focus of a new documentary film 'One Guitar', being produced in the USA by Kaleidoscope Pictures that will be released in 2015. The idea to climb mountains and perform concerts came when Mike was in hospital in Wales going through his second battle with cancer. Peters said, "I could see Mt. Snowdon from my hospital window and thought to myself, 'When I recover, I'm going to hike up that mountain as my symbolic climb back from cancer and raise money with my fans to support the cancer center that helped save my life.'" 30 years on from the original release of 'Strength', Mike Peters still has so much to live for, After twenty years living with cancer his songs of love hope and strength have taken on greater meaning and the defiance of his words from the 'Spirit Of '76' ring truer than ever. "I will never give in until the day that I die.? I'll get myself some independence, carve out a future with my two bare hands".

Tickets on Sale 7/15 at 10am! Allen Stone: My Favorite Songs Favorite Stories with King Charles

Genre: R&B/Soul
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Along with immersing himself in a songwriting approach that involved unflinching examination of ?some very dark and negative moments in my life,? Stone shaped the sound and feel of Radius by pushing himself to ?get past the boundaries of what I felt comfortable with, so that I could progress into a whole new level of creativity.? Despite that sometimes-daunting process, Radius wholly reveals Stone?s easy grace in blending everything from edgy soul-pop and earthy folk-rock to throwback R&B and Parliament-inspired funk. Radius first began to come to life back in the fall of 2013, when Stone headed to Sweden to join in a writing session with Tingsek. ?His musicality is so outside-the-box, and it really stretched me as an artist,? says Stone, who?d tapped Tingsek as one of his opening acts for an 85-date headlining tour in 2012. ?We just kept on throwing a wrench into the works and tried to create something that?s the complete antithesis of what you?d expect from pop music.? After recording the bulk of the album in Sweden, Stone rounded out Radius?s production at his own studio in the woods of northeast Washington and in L.A.-based sessions with producers like Benny Cassette (who?s previously worked with Kanye West) and Malay (a co-producer on Frank Ocean?s channel ORANGE). Like many of his own musical heroes?Stevie Wonder chief among them?Stone pulls off the near-magical feat of channeling a weight-of-the-world sensitivity into his songs while still radiating hope and promise. And though that depth of consciousness feels transmitted from a more golden era, Radius continually hones in on issues both timeless and of-the-moment, with Stone?s breezily poetic lyrics touching on topics ranging from rampant materialism (on the tenderly string-accented, harmony-soaked ?American Privilege?) and the toxic takeover of technology in art (on the gutsy and groove-heavy ?Fake Future?). ?That song?s mainly about how technology?s infiltrating music in a way that?s making it less and less human and taking all the heart out of it,? Stone says of the latter track, a soul-pop powerhouse peppered with playfully cutting lines like ?Rock stars pushing buttons/Few actually play/City wasn?t ever built on lights and Special K.? And as evidenced by Radius?s lush yet raw sonic landscape?wherein the only hint of synth comes from a Moog analog synthesizer?Stone stayed true to his pledge to ?keep fakeness completely out of this record? and rely entirely on live instrumentation. Equally introspective and outwardly searching, Radius also finds Stone exploring intensely personal matters, such as depression on the stark and lovely, acoustic-guitar-woven ballad ?Circle? (?That one was written at a pretty dark time for me,? Stone points out. ?It?s about how depression can put you into a kind of circle, where you?re just trying to find a way out but it keeps on leading you back inside?). Showing his skill at crafting a killer love song as well, Stone looks at heartbreak and regret on the aching, electric-piano-infused ?I Know That I Wasn?t Right,? slips into hopeless romanticism on the dreamy R&B pastiche ?Barbwire,? and unleashes some starry-eyed affection on the dancefloor-ready ?Symmetrical? (a sample lyric: ?The angle of your spine/Is sending lightning bolts down mine/When those molecules combine/It?s astronomically divine?). And in tracks like the ultra-catchy album-opener ?Perfect World? and the fiery, horn-laced ?Freedom,? Radius unfolds into epically joyful anthems that show the full range and power of Stone?s vocals. Stone started working those vocals as a kid, thanks largely to his parents? influence. ?My father was a minister so I spent about half my childhood in church, watching my mom and dad sing together and lead the congregation in song,? he recalls. By the time he was 11 he?d picked up a guitar and written his first song, and soon began self-recording demo tapes to pass along to classmates. Although Stone enrolled in bible college after high school, he quickly dropped out to move to Seattle and kickstart his music career. ?I had an ?87 Buick and I?d drive up and down the west coast, playing any gig I could get just to try to put my music out there,? he says. At age 22, Stone self-released his debut album, 2010?s Last To Speak. But it was his self-titled follow-up (on which he joined forces with former Miles Davis keyboardist Deron Johnson) that ended up earning him serious recognition. Along with entering the top five on iTunes? R&B/Soul chart after its digital release, Allen Stone prompted him to score appearances on such late-night talk shows like Conan and grace the pages of publications like the New York Times (whose chief popular-music critic Jon Pareles praised Stone for possessing ?a tenor voice with the eagerness and frisky syncopations of [Stevie] Wonder?). And upon partnering with ATO Records for a physical release of his self-titled album in 2012, Stone soon turned up on the likes of the Late Show with David Letterman and landed a gig as the opening act for soul legend Al Green. In the midst of all the buzz, he also took up a grueling touring schedule, tearing through nearly 600 shows in just two years. For Stone, all that time onstage went a long way in preparing him for the many creative breakthroughs he?s made on Radius. ?I think you really grow as a musician when you?re playing right in front of people, and for me constantly growing and progressing and getting better is really the most important thing,? he says. Ruminating on the emotional undertones of his new album?s title and noting that ?the center of me is my heart,? Stone says he also hopes that Radius will ultimately help listeners shed new light on their own struggles. ?There?ve been times in my life when records were my saving grace and really helped me to figure out who I am, and I?d love for my music to have that kind of impact on a kid who?s looking for his or her own place in this life,? he says. ?Because I absolutely believe that if you?re going to stand at a microphone and say something, you need to recognize that as a privilege. You?ve got to be incredibly careful about it, and really put all your heart into the message that you?re sending out into the world.?

Smoothjazzlovers.org Presents Soul Jazz Bassist Julian Vaughn feat. Danette Hollowell

Genre: Jazz/Soul
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

Julian C. Vaughn, the 6’7 lead bass player from Kansas City, whose passion shines through his dynamic young talent, has made a strong statement within the Jazz industry by breaking through the scene gaining the attention needed to thrive in its genre. Julian grew up in the church where his grandfather pastored, and father later pastored. Julian began his music career playing the drums like most children in the church. “Trying to play the drums at church was like ten football players going after a fumble. Everyone wanted to play.” The fight eventually got old, and Julian decided at the age of 15 to try his talents with a different instrument. Julian recalls picking up a bass guitar another man in the church was playing and immediately falling in love! “It was truly love at first sight.” After teaching himself to play, Julian soon realized that he had the ability to play music by ear; soon after that, he discovered how to play full songs and even specialized techniques. At the age of 19, Julian’s grandfather bought him a 6-string bass guitar, black with gold trim. As he perfected his craft even more, Julian discovered the art of bass soloing, and knew at that point, it was more than just a hobby, but it was his life’s passion. “My friends use to get on me because I would stop playing the bass line and start soloing...” Vaughn remembers. Julian’s playing style is unmistakable. His talent is captured by the atmosphere his music provides. A sense of epic, majestic, and bold invading annotations that reveal Julian’s talent derives from patient pursuits to generate an enchanting energy that keeps heeding ears immersed. Julian began work on his first CD in 2009. It started with the day he listened to the bass line laid down by Mel Brown in the song “Never Gonna Give You Up”, a remake by Toby Keith and Wayman Tisdale. Vaughn eventually sought out Brown and connected with him and agreed to play on several tracks on the record. Vaughn also got Sax player Darren Rahn, a close friend of Browns, to agree to play on and mix a few tunes on the record as well. “It was Rahn and Mel Brown who let me know that I had what it took to make in this genre...” remembers Vaughn. The purpose project was released in 2010, and not only put his playing in full display, but also highlighted Vaughn’s strong song writing ability. “I produced and wrote every song on the record which I am still proud of …it opened doors for me”. “Breakthrough” marked Vaughn’s label debut and has already made waves across the country with a two week debut on the national Billboard chart at #24, eventually reaching and staying at #1 for three consecutive weeks on the Billboard charts with his first single “On Your Feet”. Julian Vaughn stays current on industry trends but does not write his music to fit the radio format. “I know what flavor works in the music industry but I don’t write my material based on that. I write from my heart. Whatever is moving me at the moment is what dictates the end. I want to make music for the people not format. Music is my everything, that’s why I love doing what I do.” An authentic exemplification of artistry.

Vocalist extraordinaire, Danette Hollowell grew up in the church and has been singing as long as she can remember. With her father being a Chaplin in the military as well as a pianist and vocalist, Danette was a military brat that was able to travel a lot in her young age, exposing her to all types of classic soulful sounds. Danette originally started out as a classical ballerina at a private art school, “I was a dance major and sang in the choir from time to time.” Her focus was mainly dance until she accidently found a UCD scholarship specific to Jazz. Danette studied within the UCD Music Preservation Program for Swing ‘n Dixie Jazz for 2 years, and recalls it to be the BEST thing to ever happen in her life. Danette is currently singing with such groups as The Old Souls and TMRRW PPL. Danette has been a jazz vocalist in conjunction with original singer/song writer in the Denver area for the last 12 years. With a repertoire including Billy Holiday, Sam Cook, Eryka Badu, and Miguel; Danette brings a soulful, fresh sound to classic tones while putting her unique current signature on it. She has graced Colorado stages for the last nine years. “I love people, my family, African-centered things, magic, artistic expression, and music of all kinds. My favorite influences are Jazz, Soul, and Blues. I play covers and original. The mix of my unique, rich, vocal quality sets me apart from other local act. My depth of presence sets me apart and gives me international appeal.” Danette uses her musical gift to generate beauty; and no effort made to attain beauty is ever lost. May her musical legacy live for life.

British Blues/Rock pioneer Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown celebrate 50 continuous years, 44 albums, and more than 5,000 gigs from the Royal Albert Hall to Carnegie Hall to the Fillmore East and West and now back to the Soiled Dove after five years! But Kim Simmonds is not living in the past; he's challenging himself and his band to reach new heights and find higher ground. "Savoy Brown is a very musical band," Simmonds says. "We're not comparing ourselves to others. We appeal to an audience who wants to hear what we are up to now, what we are rehearsing, creating as a band. I think my guys and my team are empowering me to do this." That's what Kim lives for and invigorates him - playing for audiences who are hungry to listen for new heights in artistry - not just living off 50 years as an architect of the British hard blues scene. "Whether I like it or not, I think my destiny is to keep doing what I'm doing, play in clubs and theaters where people pay their hard eared money to hear us give them one-hundred and ten percent."

Ottmar Liebert's incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany to Chinese-German father and Hungarian mother, he began playing guitar at 11, and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his Rock and Roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, he abandoned the frustrations of the East coast and settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1989, he founded the first incarnation of his new band Luna Negra. Nouveau Flamenco began life as a self-produced local release called Marita: Shadows and Storms, copies of which local Indian artist Frank Howell distributed in his art galleries. When the record found its way to radio stations and began generating a buzz among programmers and an unprecedented response among listeners, Higher Octave Music picked it up and released a fully remastered version. Liebert has since become one of the most successful instrumental artists of the past decade, thrilling audiences throughout the world and releasing a catalog of classic recordings, including the remix collection Euphoria (1995), the live album Viva! (1995), the double CD Opium (1996) and the classical-oriented orchestral album Leaning into the Night (1997). He wrapped up his decade with Epic with 2001's Little Wing and went back to Higher Octave Music, releasing a lush album of lullabies called In the Arms of Love in 2002 and an album with Luna Negra XL called The Santa Fe Sessions (2003). La Semana (2004) was the first all-new band album in five years, followed by Winter Rose (2005), which featured original pieces, classical music and christmas songs. In 2006 Liebert's record label SSRI released One Guitar, his first solo guitar recording, which received Liebert's fourth nomination for a Grammy. His newest releases are Up Close (2008), which is a binaural dummy head surround sound recording, and The Scent of Light (2008) a labor of five years.

Mary Fahl (formerly of October Project)

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

"Sounding like no other singer of her generation" (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC-based chamber-pop group OCTOBER PROJECT. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahl's awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication.Since the band disbanded, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" for V2 Records; her wonderful, original studio album "The Other Side of Time" on Sony Odyssey; and her acclaimed album "Love and Gravity". She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song ("Going Home") for the Civil War epic Gods and Generals. Now Mary returns with her album "Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House", a collection of twenty-three tracks recorded live at one of America's oldest vaudeville theaters and filmed for PBS to be aired starting in late 2014. Fahl's elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking man's folk-pop which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that Boston Globe critic Steve Morse calls "a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms". Her upcoming performance will include "Exiles", a song written for Anne Rice's new audiobook "The Wolves of Midwinter", a stunning cover of the Joni Mitchell classic "Both Sides Now", and many October Project favorites.

Tim Reynolds and TR3

Genre: Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

With a musical career spanning more than thirty-five years, guitarist, sonic innovator, and two time Grammy nominee Tim Reynolds is known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches. Having explored most musical styles, from rock, jazz and blues to classical and reggae, Reynolds' wide-ranging musical versatility is evident each time he picks up his electric or acoustic guitar. Technically brilliant, yet emotionally honest, Reynolds' music is inspired and authentic. It was in the mid 1980s in Charlottesville, VA, when Reynolds founded his breakthrough electric power trio, TR3 (Tim Reynolds Trio), known for their fusion of funk, rock, and jazz. He toured with TR3 during the 1980s and 1990s, using a rotating cast of musicians. It was at this time he befriended Dave Matthews and their ongoing musical collaboration began. Tim eventually decided to relocate to Santa Fe, NM, and pursue a solo career. His musical progression continued throughout his many years on the road as a solo guitar wizard, playing for packed houses and to crowds who quickly determined that Reynolds is one of the most talented and thoughtful musicians on the circuit today. After a number of years in New Mexico, Reynolds relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2007. After a chance meeting with two talented musicians, bass player Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier, a few rehearsals later and several stealth appearances throughout North Carolina, Reynolds decided to resurrect the electric TR3 and they've been touring ever since. TR3 released their first double live CD, "From SPACE and Beyond" in June 2011. In 2009, their first studio CD "Radiance" was nominated for Home Grown Music Network's Album of the Year. Electric, funky, operatic, edgy?their show is a mix of updated Reynolds' classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson and Focus to TR3's ever-evolving catalogue of new material.

Tyrone Wells is 6 foot 4. He's bald because he�s never really liked his hair, so he just shaves it right off. He�s a white guy (a surprising fact to many). He has four older sisters. He originally hails from Washington State. His dad taught him how to yodel. He wanted to be a pro athlete, but wasn't even close to having what it takes. He picked up an acoustic guitar and fell in love. He's writing this bio. He's referring to himself in the third person. He believes Jesus is for real. He loves being a husband and a father. He's really normal and totally un-amazing. He tours quite a bit. He's trying to find some sort of balance in this crazy busy world. He's thinking about going back to a good old-fashioned flip phone. He's never written a "hit" song, but some people really like them anyways. He hopes you are "some people." He thinks maybe some day he will write a hit song, but he acknowledges that he also thought he would be a pro athlete. He likes to think that he sings from his soul. He is super stoked that you're checking him out right now. Thanks for reading & listening. Peace. A couple stat lines that my managers think might impress you:

Genre: Acoustic/Guitar
Doors: 6:30PM
Show: 7:30PM

Andy McKee is among the world?s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. McKee?s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today?s most unique and influential artists. He has been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK, and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours. McKee?s tour dates have taken him through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America, including tours with legendary acts including Prince and Dream Theater. Live performances of Andy?s have become a point of fascination with his loyal followers. So, in late 2015, Andy decided it was time to release a live album. Featuring tracks from his entire catalog,Live Book was recorded live in December 2015 at The Melting Point in Athens, GA, the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth, GA, and Workplay in Birmingham, AL. McKee went through the recordings from all three shows and selected the finest takes of each set. Reflecting on the song choices, he looks to provide current fans the chance to relive their favorite shows, and hopes that he can showcase the energy he creates for those who haven?t been able to attend a show and new fans alike. ?I?ve always wanted to do a live album; for quite a few years I?ve felt it?s something that has been missing from my collection of releases,? says McKee. ?This album will feature some of my YouTube hits like ?Drifting? and ?Rylynn?, some songs from my 2014 EP Mythmaker, and a cover of a Michael Hedges song called ?Because It?s There? played on harp guitar that I haven?t released yet.? McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. ?I?m honored to be a part of his label. I heard Tommy 15 years ago at a festival in Kansas and was blown away by his playing and performing, and I still am,? Mckee stated. ?To be the first person on his label is surreal, and I?m excited and proud to be a part of it.? Live Book is set to be released digitally in Europe on February 12 and worldwide (digitally and physically) on April 22. The album, McKee?s first live record, will be released through CGP Sounds.
