Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra

Genre: New Age/World
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

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.

Celtic Events Presents Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill

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

“You're about to watch one of the best fiddlers on the planet and a subtle guitar master work their magic. For a moment, stop, put aside your notion of jigs and reels, and just listen.” - NPR

"Make no mistake -- Martin Hayes is the most innovative and influential fiddler on the Irish scene today. He and guitarist Dennis Cahill deconstruct Irish melodies in revolutionary ways, opening them up for modern sensibilities in much the same way Miles Davis did with jazz or Eric Clapton did with the blues." The Boston Globe

"Irish fiddler Martin Hayes is such a formidable talent that even classical composers have begun writing for him. But to hear the real Martin Hayes, you need to hear his longstanding collaboration with guitarist Dennis Cahill." - John Schaefer, WNYC

Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill are two of the world’s leading artists in Irish music. Their adventurous, soulful interpretations of traditional tunes are recognized the world over for their exquisite musicality and irresistible rhythm. The New York Times describes the duo as "stripping old reels and jigs to their essence, leaving space between the notes for harmonics and whispered blue notes...a Celtic complement to Steve Reich's quartets or Miles Davis's 'Sketches of Spain'." Fiddler Martin Hayes is considered one of Ireland's most innovative and influential musicians. He was raised in a famous musical family in County Clare where the music he learned from his late father, P. Joe Hayes, legendary leader of theTulla Ceili Band, profoundly influenced his musical accent and ideas. By age 19 Martin had won six All-Ireland fiddle championships. He is the recipient of numerous awards including Folk Instrumentalist of the Year (BBC), Man of the Year (American Irish Historical Society), and Ireland's Musician of the Year (Gradam Ceoil TG4). Dennis Cahill is a master guitarist from Chicago born to Irish-speaking parents from the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. His spare, essential accompaniment to Martin Hayes’ fiddle is acknowledged as a major breakthrough for guitar in the Irish tradition. Dennis studied at Chicago's prestigious Music College before becoming an active member of the local music scene. Dennis has performed with such renowned fiddlers as Kevin Burke, Liz Carroll, and Eileen Ivers, as well as many Irish musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. Martin and Dennis have recorded three critically-acclaimed albums together on Green Linnet Records. In 1997 they released their first duet album “The Lonesome Touch”, followed by “Live in Seattle” in 1999. After a ten-year hiatus, in February 2008, Martin and Dennis released the studio album “Welcome Here Again.” The duo have performed around the world as well as for President Obama at the White House, the European Union in Brussels, and for the President of Ireland at the Royal Albert Hall in London. They also helped form the new Irish supergroup The Gloaming, which won Ireland's 2015 Meteor Choice Music Prize. They have collaborated with Bill Frisell, Ricky Skaggs, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, and the Irish Chamber Orchestra, and performed with Sting and Paul Simon. Martin Hayes has a track on the new album by Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, "Sing Me Home" (Sony Masterworks), which won the Grammy this year for Best World Music Album.

All Ages Show! Ben Ottewell of Gomez with Buddy

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

"It was going to be called Bones That Catch The Light," says Ben Ottewell of his third solo album, "but when I mentioned that to friends they either sniggered like Beavis and Butthead or thought it was too wordy." In the end this Chesterfield-born, Derbyshire-raised singer-songwriter opted for A Man Apart, a title with a pleasing ambiguity. "It could refer to my solo career away from Gomez, or to the crazy populist politics demagogues and thugs that seem to rule our world right now," he explains. "Or it could simply refer to a broken man; someone who has fallen apart." Given that Ben turned 40 last summer, and given that next year marks the 20th Anniversary of his former band Gomez's Mercury Music Prize-winning debut Bring It On, it was perhaps inevitable that his latest record was preceded by a fair amount of stock-taking and personal reflection. Demonstrating Ben's potent and ongoing love-affair with Americana -- and flecked with trace elements of what you might loosely call Derbyshire folk -- A Man Apart is the first solo album he has made without some kind of Gomez project lurking in the background. As such, he found the process both liberating and ever-so-slightly daunting. Throwing off the "security blanket" that is/was Gomez -- and untroubled by the question of whether the songs he was writing should be earmarked for himself or his former band -- Ben knuckled down. The two guitarleles (think ukulele with six strings) he bought for his nine-year-old twin boys proved a good investment -- though not for Joe and Ry. "They just hung them on the wall," laughs the singer, "but I picked one up and wrote [title song] 'A Man Apart' on it." While the ever-fertile ground of love and relationships tested feeds into the material that this passionate and famously gutsy singer has again co-written with childhood friend and former Tunng member Sam Genders, there are other themes afoot too. Fervent opener "Own It," for example, sees Ben reflect upon his time growing up in public with Gomez, while the album's aforementioned title track -- which was kick started by him reading about the disgraced American TV Evangelist Peter Popoff -- ultimately concerns the kind of populist politicians who deliberately exploit peoples' hopes and fears. "Most of these songs were written before the Brexit vote," says Ben, "but it would have been hard not to reference the Brexit and Trump debacles in some way. I live in Brighton and frankly we're all scared shitless. I've got a lot of friends who are European immigrants and it's a very strange and uncertain time for them." Like 2011's Shapes & Shadows and 2014's Rattlebag, A Man Apart began life in Los Angeles. The three days spent at The Chalet near Culver City were primarily to procure the services of ace engineer / bassist Will Golden and Richard Thompson's live drummer of choice, Michael Jerome. "There's this great liquor store across the road there on Washington Boulevard that's full of crazy fuckers," Ben explains, recalling the LA sessions. "They sell Bulleit Frontier Bourbon in every size you could want, and that was our fuel." From there he brought the record back to Mu Studios at The Laundry Rooms complex in Sheffield, where Martin Smith engineered and produced the record. Key contributing musicians during that stage included lead guitarist John Smith ("a true gent, and one of the best electric folk guitarists in the country") and Rhodes electric piano / Hammond organ player Joel White. It was when he wrote "Bones," Ben says, that he knew he had a record. "Just in terms of craft, I think it's one of the best things I've ever written" he says of the spare, cello-ornamented song. "It's basically about not being worthy of someone or something, but I think it's healthy to figure shit like that out." Elsewhere on A Man Apart, "Lead Me Away," with its nod to Dylan's "Simple Twist Of Fate," makes fine use of a the kind of portable field organ that army chaplains once utilised as a hymn machine, while "Walking On Air," with its gorgeous resonator guitar, spans a whole lifetime of adoration via sussed deployment of its titular pay-off line. "I still love my Americana and my JJ Cale," says Ben in summary, "but I think this is quite an English-sounding record. I feel like I'm really finding my feet as a writer, and I notice that the people who are coming to my shows these days aren't necessarily Gomez fans." Asked how the Ben Ottewell who collected The Mercury with Gomez in 1998 compares with the 2017 model of himself, meanwhile, Ben says this: "I was so crippling shy back then that I barely recognise that person. I was having a good time, but not feeling comfortable. We were all smart enough to know that it wouldn't last forever, though, and we found the surreal-ness of it all amusing. A couple of days after the Mercury we played to 20 people in Philadelphia, and that was when we started to be a proper band. "Nowadays, I just feel incredibly lucky to have had some kind of 20-year run at this, and if I can sustain what I do, great. I'm also starting to look a lot more like the way I sound," adds the singer, laughing. "I'm not this fresh-faced kid freaking people out anymore!"

Tuck & Patti

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

For 36 years this unique, genre-crossing vocal/guitar jazz duo has cast its passionate musical spell worldwide, capturing the hearts of lovers, the respect of jazz buffs and the jaw-dropping awe of guitarists and singers. To understand Tuck & Patti, start with the wellspring of love within them, then their music begins to make perfect sense. Married 33 years, Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart continue to stoke the fires, not only of their own love, but also of their love of life and their passion for making music together. They have a long-standing tradition: Minimalist arrangements featuring Tuck's extraordinary virtuosity and Patti's rich mezzo soprano. Patti, renowned for her remarkable ability to touch hearts directly with her voice, exudes the soft, centered yet powerful graciousness of a gospel singer; Tuck almost wears his brain on his skin, anticipating the thousands of musical decisions he'll have to send to his ten fingers during the course of a performance. Seeing the virtuosity and complexity of Tuck's guitar work, most are surprised to learn that Patti is the actual writer, arranger and producer. Without even blinking, Tuck-the-problem-solver brags, "Patti writes and arranges; I am just the orchestra." When they're not touring, Tuck and Patti live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where they record and teach students, in person and via Skype. For more info, go to tuckandpatti.com.

"But when I think about the people who did survive, I think that they may be the strongest souls there are. Out of this pain, I have found the greatest strength from these individuals.

Soiled Dove & Celtic Events Present Skerryvore

Genre: Celtic
Doors: 2:30PM
Show: 3:30PM

Back on the remote Scottish island of Tiree, in 2005, the raw, but contemporary trad quartet that formed Skerryvore, could have only dreamed that, over the next decade, they would become a multi-award winning act, which was performing in over 25 countries worldwide, and featured as ambassadors for their country, in an international advertising campaign for ‘Visit Scotland’. From those traditional roots, the band has developed, both in size and sound, to create a unique fusion of their traditional music and songs, with the urban sounds of rock, pop and funk. With their outstanding musicianship and the mesmerizing voice of award-winning singer- songwriter, Alec Dalglish, Skerryvore has become an international sensation, performing in cities such as Dubai, Beijing, Shanghai, Madrid, Munich and New York. The band’s high-energy shows have also featured at many premier festivals, both at home in Scotland (T in the Park, Belladrum, Wickerman, Celtic Connections) and trending international into Tonder Festival (Denmark), Lorient Interceltique (France), Ryder Cup (Louisville), and Milwaukee Irish Fest and Central Park NY (USA). 2015 marked the 10th Anniversary of Skerryvore, which included a special open-air concert at Moss eld Stadium, Oban. After the event sold out (3000 tickets in 90 minutes), the capacity was doubled and attracted 6000 people from all around the world. The success of the concert has led to the creation of a new event in the town, Oban Live. The band also released the song, “Happy to be Home,” with legendary Irish musician, Sharon Shannon, which topped the iTunes World Music Charts same year.

John Mark McMillan presents The Mercury and Lightning Tour feat. Kings Kaleidoscope & LaPeer

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

JOHN MARK MCMILLAN is something of an anomaly: an artist and Platinum-selling songwriter bending genres and defying categorization by carving out his own unique and independent path. With an ear for melody and a poet’s eye for metaphor, no topic has been off-limits. While each of his albums over the past decade have continued to explore new territory, it’s McMillan’s ability to give lyric and language to the human experience that many consider his greatest gift. Mercury & Lightning, the latest offering from McMillan, reminds us why we love great songwriters; The great ones find a way to put new words to private musings and desperate feelings until the songs themselves begin to live in our bones. Though the robust 14-song album doesn’t release until Sept 1, the iTunes pre-order launches July 28 with four instant grat tracks including the title track “Mercury & Lightning,” “Wilderlove,” “No Country,” and “Enemy, love.” The vibe and tone from each track will mesmerize but it’s McMillan’s voice that draws you in and makes you feel as though you’ve pulled up a chair to one of those conversations you want to stick around for. The entire album was recorded just outside of Portland, OR at Feng Sway Studios over 18 months with close friend Gabriel Wilson and long time bandmate Jesse Proctor. Their collaboration produced the kind of record that your kid usually discovers before you do - something progressive yet accessible. Borrowing from their childhood influences, McMillan, Wilson and Proctor bring elements of 80’s rock and 90’s R&B together, somehow making the record feel both modern and unexpected. The album title was pulled from Roman mythology. “Mercury is the god of financial gain, commerce, communication, travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves”, says McMillan. “If something is hard to catch, understand or lock down, it's known to be ‘mercurial’ or ‘like Mercury.’ The story of the new record begins with a conversation about all the things we run after, give our lives to - even die for - that often seem so mercurial and mysterious.” And John Mark would know; This being his 7th studio album, each new record seems to reveal a man chasing a new set of questions we should have been asking ourselves all along. On the heels of releasing his single “No Country” the week before the presidential election, John Mark said, “There was a point when I was afraid to finish this song. I abandoned it multiple times asking myself, ‘How many people really want to hear a white guy singing about being marginalized?’ Sure, I know how it feels to be lonely and misunderstood, but I’ve certainly never been discriminated against. I’ve never been asked and certainly not forced to vacate the luxuries and safety of my middle class suburban situation. So, what am I even singing about? Refugees? Sure. Racism? Yes. Immigration? Sure. Politics? Maybe. Relationships? Aging? Yes and yes. But ultimately I think that the song is summed up in one line: ‘Do you see me?’ It’s the cry of all of us - to be known.” McMillan is no stranger to success with nearly half a million monthly listeners on Spotify and 40 million Spotify streams, but he won’t let those things define him. John Mark says he’s learned a lot about himself since his previous studio album Borderland, which held a Top 15 spot on the iTunes Albums chart and No. 41 on Billboard’s Top 200. When talking about his life and career McMillan says, “I’ve found that there’s a profound restlessness in the gap between the ideals of youth and the realities of adulthood - even when, especially when, you get what you wanted.” It’s this level of honesty and wrestling with where he is during this season of his career and life that compelled McMillan to open up about his struggle with anxiety. “I try to control my world and since that is supremely not possible,” says McMillan, “I get anxiety. I promised myself when I got married that I wouldn't miss a moment with my exquisite china-doll girl, but...I get anxiety. Then we had kids and I swore I wouldn’t let go of a precious second of their lives. They’re such wild birds, and their raucous life and energy bring me outrageous amounts of joy, but also...anxiety. My attempts to control the universe only creates enemies. Enemies with the world, enemies with the ones I love, and I find myself at odds with God and with myself - in trying so hard to have it all the way I want it, I become my own worst enemy. ‘Enemy, love.’, like much of the new record, is about growing up - especially the ‘letting go’ part of growing up. There are just things I can’t know, I can’t hold, and I can’t control. Not to be irresponsible or dismissive, but I’m realizing when I ‘let go’ of my ideals and ego, I also become much better at holding onto what I actually have.” In 2015, McMillan, who has made a career of rejecting easy categorization and challenging expectations, co-founded the independent record label Lionhawk Records with his manager Josh Lujan Loveless. Mercury & Lightning stands to be the third album release from Lionhawk Records with additional releases in the works. Over the past year, John Mark joined NEEDTOBREATHE’s Tour De Compadres with Mat Kearney and Welshly Arms and co-headlined The Revelators Tour with Josh Garrels. This year McMillan plans to hit the road again on a three-month US headlining tour kicking off in September in support of the new album.

Mindi Abair & The Boneshakers

Genre: Jazz/Blues/Rock
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

In a career that spans seven solo albums and countless collaborations in the studio and live on stage, Mindi Abair has made her mark on a broad stretch of the musical landscape that includes jazz, pop, rock, R&B, soul, funk and more. The powerhouse saxophonist/vocalist has made scores of friends along the way and earned the respect of top-shelf artists representing every one of the aforementioned genres. In addition to her acclaimed body of solo work that includes ten # 1 radio hits and close to half a million albums sold, Abair was the featured saxophonist on the 2011 and 2012 seasons of American Idol, jammed with Paul Shaffer on the Late Show with David Letterman and joined rock legends Aerosmith for their 2012 summer tour. In 2014, Abair received a GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Pop Instrumental Album category for Summer Horns, a #1 recording with her friends Dave Koz, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot, featuring four of the most pre-eminent saxophonists in contemporary music. More recently, Abair received a 2015 GRAMMY® nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for her follow-up solo CD Wild Heart. In addition to the years of hard work and dedication leading up to these successes, some of the credit is due to an impressive pedigree. Abair?s paternal grandmother was an opera singer, and her father was a saxophonist and B3 player in a band called The Entertainers ? a gig that kept the whole family on the road for several years of Mindi?s childhood. By the time the band broke up and the Abairs put down roots in St. Petersburg, Florida, five-year-old Mindi had already demonstrated musical aspirations of her own by taking up the piano. Since she first picked up a saxophone at age 8, Mindi Abair knew what inspired her, and followed her heart. She took part in every band program available in elementary, middle and high school. After a year at the University of North Florida, she transferred to Berklee College of Music, where she graduated magna cum laude with a degree in woodwind performance. Her powerhouse and emotive style hearkens back to the days of Junior Walker and King Curtis, when saxophone was as integral an instrument as the guitar in the early days of rock and soul. Abair recalls some wise counseling she received during her college years: ?My saxophone teacher Joe Viola told me every week, ?You have to start your own band. You?ve got your own sound. Don?t practice a bunch of David Sanborn or Wayne Shorter licks. Go out and make your own mark.? It was the best advice anyone could have given me.? She took the advice and ran with it, all the way to the opposite coast. She landed in Los Angeles, where she began a long dues-paying process that included touring gigs with Teena Marie, John Tesh, Bobby Lyle and Jonathan Butler. When she was home from the road, she booked her own band in just about any club that would have them. And on those occasions when none would, she played on the streets of Santa Monica. ?I didn?t want to wait tables when I had a music degree from the foremost contemporary music school in the world. I came here to play,? she says. ?I?d take my horn down to 3rd Street Promenade and just play. I paid my rent for quite a few months by doing that.? Bobby Lyle walked by one day and hired her for his upcoming world tour, jumpstarting her career. Those humble beginnings lead to an impressive list of early tours including Teena Marie, Adam Sandler, Bobby Lyle, The Backstreet Boys, Mandy Moore, Duran Duran and more. Abair released her first album, the independently-produced Always and Never the Same, in 1999, while touring with the Backstreet Boys. By the beginning of the new decade, the combination of nonstop performing and her well-received indie release had helped solidify her musical identity. ?By the time I signed on with Verve in 2002,? she says, ?I really knew who I was as an artist. I knew what I wanted to say, and every artist I?d toured with on the way here helped me shape who I was.? Known for writing the bulk of her own material, It Just Happens That Way, Abair?s major label debut in 2003, was the first in a string of chart-topping solo recordings on Verve that also included I Can?t Wait for Christmas (2004), Come As You Are (2005) and Life Less Ordinary (2007). She made the move to Peak, a division of Concord Music Group, with the 2008 release of Stars, an album that showcased ? more than any of her previous recordings ? her attractive vocal work as an engaging counterpoint to her solid saxophone chops. In Hi-Fi Stereo, released in 2010, paid tribute to the sounds of the ?60s and early ?70s harkening back to artists such as King Curtis and Junior Walker, icons that influenced Mindi from a young age. Her two seasons on American Idol in 2011 and 2012 led to her joining Aerosmith as their first saxophonist since 1973 for their 2012 Summer Global Warming Tour. And Clarence Clemons? untimely death led to her touring with Max Weinberg and a night at the Beacon Theater with Bruce Springsteen. ?I got off those tours, and I had this burst of electric energy to make some music of my own,? says Abair. ?Those tours really affected what I was feeling and what I was writing. I had spent so many nights on stage with these guys who were sweating and bleeding and giving it all for their audience. I wanted that strength and that abandon on my record, and I was inspired to make that happen.? Soon after, Abair joined a group called Summer Horns, assembled by fellow saxophonist Dave Koz for a record and tour. The lineup also included Richard Elliot and Gerald Albright. The resulting sax foursome crafted a record that paid tribute to the great horn bands of the late ?60s and early ?70s, including Tower of Power, Chicago, Earth, Wind & Fire, Sly & the Family Stone and Blood, Sweat & Tears. The Summer Horns recording scored a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Recording, a validation of not only the collective talent on the record itself, but also of the lasting impact and influence of the music of that era. On her May 27, 2014 release Wild Heart, Abair plunged headlong into vintage rock and soul territory, harkening back to the days when saxophone was an integral part of the musical landscape. Wild Heart received a GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album category in December 2014. After Wild Heart, she wanted to translate its edgier rock/soul sound to the stage. She called longtime friend Randy Jacobs (Bonnie Raitt, Was (Not Was), Willie Nelson) to join her live band. Randy brought his Detroit blues/rock edge to her music. In June, Jacob?s band The Boneshakers was playing the Newport Beach Jazz Festival on the same bill as Abair?s, and she hopped on stage before her band?s show to ?sit in? with The Boneshakers. The end result, Mindi Abair & the Boneshakers Live in Seattle, is scheduled for release on September 25, 2015 on Heads Up, a division of Concord Music Group. And if writing, recording and touring weren?t enough, Abair recently served a two-year term from 2013?2015 as President of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), and now serves as a National Trustee. ?It?s been a very eye-opening and inspiring role,? she says. ?What an honor to serve as a leader in the most pre-eminent organization of the music business. This is a group of people who give back constantly to inspire and strengthen the next generation of music makers, and they remind me daily what beautiful power we hold as creators of music.? That sense of power and reach has become part of Abair?s creative philosophy in recent years and has made its way into her music as well. ?I?ve recorded, toured and collaborated with so many artists representing so many styles of music,? she says. ?I?m the luckiest person in the world to be surrounded by such talent and true artistry. I don?t care about labels or boundaries or preconceptions with music. I just want to play and create and keep moving forward.?

The Sax Pack feat. Jeff Kashiwa, Steve Cole & Marcus Anderson

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

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.

All Ages Show! Tim Reynolds & 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.

Matt Wertz

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

A self-made singer/songwriter, Matt Wertz spent years creating soulful, feel-good pop music on his own terms. Nashville — a city that doubled as his muse and adopted hometown — always played a big role in that creation process. It was the place where Wertz wrote his songs, the place he recorded his albums, the place he'd return after touring the country with songwriters like Jason Mraz, Maroon 5, Parachute and Gavin DeGraw. Something changed after 2014's Heatwave, a record that shone a neon light on Wertz's appreciation for '80s pop music. Wertz realized he'd grown perhaps a bit too comforta-ble in Nashville, where he'd been making music for more than a decade. Looking to write an album that tackled contemporary pop music from a different angle — literally — he headed to Los Angeles, where he spent several months writing songs for his ninth album, Gun Shy. Fueled by infectious, 90’s-inspired beats, lush textures, and soaring air-tight pop melodies, Gun Shy fires twin barrels of modern pop and synthesized R&B, finding new life in old-school influences. "I realized I'd been making records in a similar way in the same geographic area," Wertz admits, "and I wanted to get away from that comfort zone. I personally was needing a fresh approach — to pull the clip on the grenade and blow things up and start over. I'm a fan of current pop music, and L.A. is very much about what's happening now. I wanted to see how my music fit into that space." Filled with left-field love songs about guarding yourself, opening your heart to new pos-sibilities, and wrestling with the sacrifice and vulnerability that love requires of everyone, Gun Shy finds Wertz urging his listeners — and, perhaps, himself — to continue taking leaps. It's an album about stepping into unfamiliar situations, armed with the courage to fail and the drive to succeed. On "Committed," the album's kickoff track, Wertz rededi-cates himself to the artistic struggle, and with "Slow Motion," he focuses his attention on a loved one by clearing away the clutter and distractions of everyday life. Later, during "Hold On To Me," he channels his inner Michael Jackson on a song that poses some of the biggest questions of his career: why we're here, who put us there, and what it all means. A longtime member of Nashville's songwriting community, Wertz teams up with some of L.A.'s A-list pop writers for Gun Shy, including Ian Keaggy (Hot Chelle Rae, Cody Simpson), Ben Romans (The Click Five, Carly Rae Jepsen), and Seth Jones (Greg Holden, Tyler Bryant). More than a decade into a career filled with commercial success and touring milestones, Matt Wertz remains proud to be an independent singer/songwriter. But don't mistake Gun Shy for the sort of intimate album you'd hear at your local coffee shop. These are not acoustic guitar songs. They're songs built on laptops and driven forward by dance beats. Songs that move you physically and emotionally. Songs that splash Wertz's su-per-sized hooks across the backdrop of the Los Angeles skyline, creating their own brand of scenery along the way.

Alejandro Escovedo

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

Renowned songwriter, singer, true believer, Alejandro Escovedo released Burn Something Beautiful on October 28th, 2016 via Fantasy Records. The new album, Escovedo's first solo endeavor since 2012's highly acclaimed Big Station, is in actuality, a highly collaborative affair. Teaming with Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) to co-write the album's songs, Escovedo also enlisted the pair to act as the project's producers. Escovedo and company take some mighty big swings here. At once a celebration of the rock and roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Escovedo's soulful heart and voice at its core. Recorded in April at Portland's Type Foundry studio, the project coalesced with the help of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). In a trailblazing career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco's famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992's acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine's Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two. "You just do your good work, and people care," Alejandro says. "I always believed, when I was a kid, that if you worked hard, you would find fulfillment. I think I got a lot of that from my father and my brothers. A working musician is all I ever wanted to be. Hard work, stay true to what you want to do, and then eventually someone would notice for that very reason."

Poco featuring Rusty Young

Genre: Rock
Doors: 6:00PM
Show: 7:00PM

For more than 50 years, their distinctive harmonies and stellar musicianship helped define the sound of country-rock. Still led by the band co-founder and multi-instrumentalist who wrote and sang their biggest hits, they are a dedicated unit of four formidable songwriters, vocalists, arrangers and players. And rather than rest on any of these considerable laurels, they instead hit stages coast-to-coast armed with the kind of classic songs and instrumental chops that puts performers half their age to shame. In other words, Poco today is a band reborn. “Poco has a history unmatched by any band,” says co-founder Rusty Young.“ We’ve always been formed by individually unique artists. It’s fate that the four of us came together, and it’s a process of evolution that we’ve become a better and better band.” Poco is Young (steel and acoustic guitars, dobro, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Jack Sundrud (bass, vocals), Michael Webb (keyboards, mandolin, accordion, guitars, vocals) and Rick Lonow (drums, vocals). “We’re so in tune with each other musically and personally,” Young says, “that I consider us to be one of the very best bands that Poco has ever had.” The quick history: Rising from the ashes of Buffalo Springfield, Poco was founded in 1967 by Rusty Young, Richie Furay, George Grantham and Jim Messina. Over the next five decades, alongside bandmates that would also include Paul Cotton, Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit, Rusty became not only the musical core of the band, but also the writer and vocalist behind hits including ‘Rose Of Cimarron’ and the #1 smash “Crazy Love’. “I made a promise to myself that Poco would only keep going if we remained a band of real musicians who were having fun,” Rusty says. “Because audiences can tell the difference.” “We all feel like we’ve landed on a combination of people and a situation that gives us a lot of satisfaction,” agrees longtime bassist Sundrud, whose pre-Poco stints included bass/vocals for Dickey Betts, Nicolette Larson, Vince Gill and Bobby Whitlock, songwriter for Kenny Rogers, Ty Herndon and The Judds, and co-founder of the celebrated progressive country band Great Plains. “Poco has always blazed a trail musically,” he says. “The band was on the forefront of getting country and rock to work together organically. I'm proud to be part of Poco, and today we’re all focused on keeping Poco vibrant and new.” “At the end of the day, bands survive and flourish on their chemistry,” says Lonow, who was a former member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Jamie Hartford Band, The Bellamy Brothers and Burrito Deluxe, played on Grammy nominated/winning albums by June Carter Cash, Billy Joe Shaver and Loretta Lynn, and was co-writer of Poco’s 1989 smash ‘Call It Love’. “Rusty is still the voice that everyone recognizes from the hits and he can still play his ass off. Jack has been in the band since 1985 and his vocals and bass playing are key to the Poco sound. Michael brings a musicianship that has redefined the band’s energy. When we want, we can turn any song into a really amazing country-rock odyssey.” “All of us had individually been a part of some very musically adventurous scenes, whether it was country, rock or bluegrass,” explains Michael Webb. “And Poco pretty much created a lot of the templates that influenced what we were all doing.” Kentucky native Webb had begun his career working with The Wooten Brothers before moving to Nashville in the late ‘80s and joining cult country-rockers Mark Germino & The Sluggers and The Brooklyn Cowboys, as well as playing on and/or producing albums by Chris Stapleton, Allison Moorer, Dan Baird and Stacey Earle. “Poco was exactly what I was looking to do and didn’t even know it,” Webb says. “At the time I got the call, I was on tour with John Fogerty who’s known for playing his songs exactly as people remember them. Poco puts the songs first, but are also committed to being sonically creative.Rusty and I started pushing each other in solos and improvisation almost instantly.”For the band’s legion of longtime fans –known as ‘Poconuts’ –as well as new converts, it’s Poco’s live performances where their newfound attitude and energy truly goes next level. “We challenge each other every time we’re onstage,” says Rusty,“ which means that no two shows are ever alike. Between Michael and I, we play 10 different instruments and are able to open up some musically adventurous journeys.” Webb is proud that audiences have enthusiastically embraced the band’s new approach. “We still play all the hits that fans love – and we love playing them – but our emphasis is no longer on duplicating the catalog,” he says. “Rusty is a great writer and singer, but he’s first and foremost a really imaginative musician. And his musicianship is becoming a focus again.” Alongside hits like ‘Crazy Love’, ‘A Good Feelin’ To Know’, ‘Rose Of Cimarron’, ‘Call It Love’, ‘Heart Of The Night’ and ‘Keep On Tryin’’, songs from the acclaimed 2013 album All Fired Up are now concert favorites. Best of all, the band’s incendiary instrumental jams have become an organic throwback to Poco’s legendary ‘70s performances. ”There are a lot of people seeing the band for the first time, or for the first time in 10 years,” says Sundrud.“ And they tell us that Poco is just a great rock & roll experience.” Yet another bonus of the band’s rebirth is the growing recognition of Poco as godfathers of the roots movement. “Poco, at its core, is an early example of what could be described as Americana” No Depression said in 2014; “a roots rock band that melded genres in the process of creating something new and exciting.” Rusty – arguably the most influential steel player in rock & roll history – was inducted into Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Gallery Of Greats’ in 2012, and Michael, Jack and Rick are in-demand session players for artists that include Sturgill Simpson, Chris Knight, Ryan Bingham, Jamey Johnson and Zac Brown Band. “Artists like Buffalo Springfield, Gram Parsons, The Band and Poco wrote the blueprints for the Americana movement,” Lonow says. “They were a bunch of longhaired hippie rockers who couldn’t deny their love of steel guitar and harmonies. Americana began as folk and country-rock, and Americana fans tend to also be Poco fans.” “We don’t feel like a 50-year old band,” RustyYoung says with pride. “Poco has never slowed down or stopped making new music. Everyone loves the challenge of being in Poco, and we’re all working hard at moving the band towards new audiences. We love playing for people who haven’t heard Poco in a while – or are maybe hearing them for the first time – and having them discover who Poco is today.” For Poco, this is more than just a time of rebirth. On record and onstage, it’s the sound of a legendary band once again hitting its stride.

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

Join Dearling for an evening dedicated to the catalogue of one of the biggest bands of all time, Fleetwood Mac.

Dearling is husband and wife team Dave Preston and Rachel James and joined by brothers Noah and Joel Matthews. The Colorado based folk/rock/country band has shared stages with Roberta Flack, Lenka and Chris Issak and in Aug 2017, Dearling was hand selected to open for FACE at their debut Red Rocks performance. “We have always wanted to have a night dedicated to the incredible craft of one our favorites and we couldn't be more excited. Keep your ears out for hits Landslide, The Chain, Rhiannon and Go Your Own Way.” Native to Colorado, to the West, to mountain ranges and vast open spaces lends meaning and melodies completely unique to Dearling. It's not about the style as much as it is about the sounds, and tones, and textures and feelings that the Western Wild inspires. It's a place of vast weather changes, high highs and mellow lows. It's a little rough and a little sweet, a little desert and a little rain. In love with Fleetwood Mac, Dearling has a boldly ambient flare and a true mainstream hook. It's supposed to be about love. Real love. Which has dimension and dynamic and range. It's Colorado country music. A little alternative, a little folk, a little rock, and very country with as much soul in the lyrics as the melodies.

Kurt Elling feat. The Swingles

Genre: Jazz

Show: 8:00PM

GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling is among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. He won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and was named “Male Singer of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association on eight occasions. An inter-national jazz award winner, he has also been GRAMMY nominated a dozen times. Elling’s rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word and poetry. The New York Times declared, “Elling is the standout male vocalist of our time.” The Washington Post added, “Since the mid 1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.” Elling was the Artist in Residence for the Singapore and Monterey Jazz Festivals. He has also written multi-disciplinary works for The Steppenwolf Theatre and the City of Chicago. The Obama Administration’s first state dinner featured Elling in a command performance. Elling is a renowned artist of vocalese–the writing and performing of words over recorded improvised jazz solos. The natural heir to jazz pioneers Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure and Jon Hendricks, Elling has set his own lyrics to the improvised solos of Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett and Pat Metheny. He often incorporates images and references from writers such as Rilke, Rumi, Neruda and Proust into his work. The late poet and Bollingen Prize winner Robert Creeley wrote, “Kurt Elling takes us into a world of sacred particulars. His words are informed by a powerful poetic spirit.” Said Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States, “In Kurt Elling’s art, the voice of jazz gives a new spiritual presence to the ancient, sweet and powerful bond between poetry and music.” Kurt Elling has toured vigorously throughout his career, thrilling audiences throughout the world. In that time he has led his own ensemble and has collaborated with many of the world’s finest orchestras.

SOLD OUT! Timothy B. Schmit of The Eagles
with Richie Furay

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

It’s been seven years since TIMOTHY B. SCHMIT released his last album. The standard opening question is: “Why did it take so long?” The standard SCHMIT answer to most questions is funny in a self-deprecating way and rooted in simple truths. So of course he answers, “I wasn’t ready until now!” Patience is a virtue. And with a career that unfolds back to the halcyon 1960s, patience has served this storied artist well. He was in his teens when he charted for the first time. At the turn of the decade he joined POCO and helped steer the band into its pioneering fusions of country, rock and folk. In 1977 he became a member of the legendary EAGLES, an association that would continue on and off for decades. At the same time, SCHMIT also collaborated with other artists. His talents enhanced Toto’s “Africa,” Richard Marx’s “Don’t Mean Nothin’,” Bob Seger’s “Fire Lake,” Crosby Stills and Nash’s “Wasted On The Way” and multiple tracks by Steely Dan. He’s played internationally as a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band and Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band. All the while SCHMIT absorbed what he played and heard, weaving it strand by strand into his musical fabric. Now and then he stepped out with a solo album. The most recent, Expando, dropped in 2009 and triggered praise from Allmusic.com (“his strongest-ever collection of songs, songs that are tuneful, knowing, reflective and occasionally funny”), BBC (“satisfyingly complete”) and other cultural arbiters. Then, with patience, he settled back into his busy routine, appearing on recordings with artists as diverse as Wynonna Judd, Diana Krall and The Blind Boys of Alabama. But he also kept listening, writing, filing ideas and edging closer to his next individual project. Illuminated by an array of fine musicians and singers, LEAP OF FAITH--a strong mix of rock, country, Americana, R&B and even a bit of reggae--plays like a multicolored corona around SCHMIT’s distinctive artistry. From the jaunty opening track “My Hat” to the soaring harmonies and heartfelt reflections of “This Waltz,” this is more than another album in a great artist’s catalog. It is a milestone effort, looking back at all that brought him to where he stands today and ahead to a future full of both mystery and promise. LEAP OF FAITH marks the culmination of SCHMIT’s unhurried, yet inspired reflections of life. On his new album, he goes further up the path he began to explore on Expando. “Again, I wanted to write this album on my own,” he says “In any collaboration one has to make a series of compromises. That’s not a bad thing, it’s simply not what I’ve chosen to do with this project. I’m just putting it out there, and maybe some of these ideas might resonate with listeners.” Often writing and recording between touring with the EAGLES, this project took a little time, so the songs on LEAP OF FAITH have a broad compass. “Slow Down” is a note to self on escaping life’s pressures coasting along on a reggae pulse sweetened by jazz giant Gary Burton’s vibraphone. “What Should I Do,” has a Muscle Shoals feel; steamy, funky, and sensual. On “Goodbye, My Love,” he takes us deep down into traditional country, with Paul Franklin’s glistening steel guitar layered over the changes. And on “It’s Alright,” his most intimate song, SCHMIT needs only his own acoustic guitar to express profound love. For all their diversity, these songs are bound by a candor and craftsmanship that are rare in today’s music. SCHMIT says, “I don’t feel confined by any outside perceptions about what I do. I just try to pull songs out of the ethers and shape them as they come, whatever the genre.” LEAP OF FAITH is co-produced by TIMOTHY and multi-talented friend Hank Linderman. “I hired Hank Linderman quite a few years ago to help me learn how to maneuver through my then new demo studio. But as the studio grew I eventually chose to concentrate on my craft, so I put him in charge of the technical part, among other things. He is an excellent engineer, musician and singer.” Linderman has also worked both on the EAGLES’ last studio album, as well as Don Henley’s recent solo project. Hank is essential to how LEAP OF FAITH sounds and feels. “For instance, on ‘My Hat,’ I told him I wanted him to play the solo, but to do so in a very simple manner. He ended up playing something I would never have dreamed of, and yes, it’s simple and beautiful.” “Over the last ten years or so, I’ve felt like I’m finally getting the hang what it is I do best,” SCHMIT sums up with his knack for wry understatement. “Although this project took some time to complete, this is what I came up with … This is who I am. This is a LEAP OF FAITH.” Patience pays off: LEAP OF FAITH is well worth the wait.

Chris Knight

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

Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. Won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career that’s been hailed as “where Cormac McCarthy meets Copperhead Road”, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say. But with his new album Little Victories, Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. His first album of new material in 4 years, Little Victories is a record of blunt honesty, elegiac truths and the raw rural poetry of an artist who’s come into his own and intends to stay. And for a performer who’s been compared over the years to Cash, Prine, Earle and Nebraska-era Springsteen, Knight now stands alone as a singer/songwriter that has carved his own idiosyncratic sound and sensibility out of the dirt road American dream. Little Victories not only sounds like a Chris Knight album, but the best Chris Knight album yet.

You might know Chris Mann from NBC's The Voice, but that's only one chapter of the story. After years of lost record deals and heartache in the music industry, Mann finally got his break on The Voice following Super Bowl XLVI with a record-breaking 37.6 million viewers. He quickly became a fan-favorite with some of the most memorable performances in the show’s history. Billboard later praised his finale performances of “The Prayer” (with coach, Christina Aguilera) and “You Raise Me Up” on their list of the Best Voice Performances of All Time, solidifying Mann’s place as one of the most acclaimed new artists in the world. Following his success on The Voice, Mann boldy reimagined the classical-pop genre on his debut album, Roads (Universal/Republic Records). The aptly-titled album represented the culmination of a long and challenging journey for this gifted and dedicated young artist, who’d been pushing forward against what had appeared to be overwhelming odds. Now, he's triumphed. The record hit #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart and appeared among his idols on the Billboard Top 200 and iTunes charts. His sophomore album, Constellation, followed suit topping the Billboard and iTunes charts, once again. During his meteoric rise, Chris realized another dream filming his very first full-length concert and holiday TV specials for PBS, “Chris Mann In Concert: A Mann For All Seasons” and “Home For Christmas.” Following the success of his PBS specials, Mann toured his live performances to concert and symphony halls across the country, landing him solidly on the national stage. Chris has since performed with the National Symphony for President and Mrs. Barack Obama, headlined at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. and at New York City's famed Christmas in Rockefeller Center Concert. He has also appeared on Ellen, The Today Show, Conan, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with James Corden and Christmas in Washington. But of all of these dream performance opportunities, Mann cherishes one above the rest. Chris was invited to sing to honor his country at the National Memorial Day Concert on PBS. During that unforgettable concert, Chris performed on the West Lawn of the United States Capitol for an audience of over 300,000 and millions of TV viewers to honor American service men and women and their families--an experience he will never soon forget.

Gerald Albright

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

One of the biggest stars of R&B, contemporary and straight-ahead jazz, Gerald Albright has earned his reputation as a ?musician?s musician.? Born in Los Angeles, he began piano lessons at an early age. Albright?s love of music picked up considerably when he was given a saxophone that had belonged to his piano teacher. By the time he enrolled at the University of Redlands, he was already a polished saxophonist. Albright decided to switch to bass guitar after he saw Louis Johnson in concert. A few months after graduating from college, he joined jazz pianist/R&B singer Patrice Rushen, who was in the process of forming her own band. Later, when the bass player left in the middle of a tour, Albright replaced him and finished the tour on bass guitar. During the ?80s, Albright became a highly requested session musician, playing on albums by a wide variety of artists ? including Anita Baker, Ray Parker, Lola Folana, Atlantic Starr, Olivia Newton-John, the Temptations and Maurice White. He also toured extensively with Les McCann, Jeff Lorber, Teena Marie, the Winans, Marlena Shaw, Quincy Jones, and Whitney Houston, among many others. Albright also went on to record numerous successful solo albums for Atlantic Records. Two albums hit the number one slot on Billboard?s Top Contemporary Jazz Chart, and were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards in 1989 and 1990. Phil Collins asked him to front a Big Band in 1998, and they toured together. The two of them also recorded one of Albright?s tunes, ?Chips N? Salsa? on Collins? Big Band Project, entitled A Hot Night In Paris. Later that year, Albright released Pleasures of the Night with Will Downing on Verve Forecast, which hit No. 1 on Billboard?s Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart as well. Albright moved to GRP in 2002 for the Groovology album, and continued to maintain his busy schedule as a session man. His second GRP album, Kickin? It Up, followed in 2004. Two years later, he signed with Peak Records, which released the 2008 GRAMMY® nominated New Beginnings, and the 2009 GRAMMY® nominated, Sax for Stax; both in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. Over the years, Albright has appeared on numerous TV shows such as A Different World, Melrose Place and BET Jazz segments, as well as piloting a show in Las Vegas with Designing Women star Meshach Taylor. Albright was selected to be one of 10 saxophonists to play at President Clinton?s inauguration ceremony. Along the way, he has sold over a million albums in the U.S. alone and has appeared on nearly 200 albums by other artists. Albright released Pushing The Envelope in June 2010 on Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group. Pushing The Envelope is a showcase for Albright?s remarkably fine balance of songcraft and musicianship, and features special guest appearances by Fred Wesley on trombone, Earl Klugh on acoustic guitar and George Duke on acoustic piano. In December 2010, Pushing The Envelope received a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album. On June 19, 2012, Albright teamed up with GRAMMY®-winning guitarist Norman Brown for 24/7, their first album together. Featuring ten killer soul-jazz tracks, 24/7 includes updated versions of ?Tomorrow,? a Brothers Johnson classic from 1976, and ?Champagne Life,? from singer Ne-Yo?s album Libra Scale. 24/7 was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in the category of Best Pop Instrumental Album. On August 5, 2014, Albright releases Slam Dunk and continues his reign supreme as the genre?s most compelling and consistent artist. Fans will hear his searing and soulful sax lines on this twelve-track recording. And, they?ll be in for a surprise, as Albright shows off his chops as a bassist, along with his ebullient tenor, baritone and soprano saxophone arrangements on his own compositions, and his super covers of classics by Phil Collins (?True Colors?) and James Brown (?It?s a Man?s, Man?s Man?s World?), with special guest vocalist Peabo Bryson. In December 2014, Slam Dunk received a GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Contemporary Instrumental Album category.

Howie Day

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

Howie Day’s emotionally resonant lyrics and inventive melodies have earned him both critical praise and a legion of devoted fans. He is known for his energetic,heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his songwriting and his quirky sense of humor. Day’s warm tenor voice “soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit,” as one critic put it. After sales of over a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well a s new material from his upcoming studio release. A native of Bangor, Maine, Day began playing piano at age five and guitar at age 12. By 15, he was writing his own songs and performing across New England. Shortly after graduating high school, Day became a fixture at college coffeehouses across the U.S. He wrote, financed and released his first effort, Australia, which was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards. The Boston Globe called Day “gorgeously seasoned, far beyond his years” with “a brave, beautiful singing voice.” During his relentless touring schedule, Day began experimenting with effects pedals and loop-sampling techniques as he performed, layering live percussion with vocal harmonies and guitar parts to become a veritable one-man band. He went on to sell over 30,000 copies of Australia as he navigated the independent music scene and continued to hone his craft. After signing with Epic Records, Day released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, and hit the road to support it. The constant promotion paid off: Stop was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits: “She Says” and the platinum single “Collide.” After three subsequent years of intense worldwide touring, Day moved to Los Angeles and returned to the studio. His next release, Sound the Alarm, built on the emotionally complex spirit of its predecessor and delved into Day’s journey from indie wunderkind to platinum-selling artist. It’s lead single, “Be There,” became a staple at modern AC radio. After parting ways with Epic and relocating to New York City in 2010, Day released the Ceasefire EP on his own label, Daze. New songs began to emerge and evolve at shows across North America and Australia. Day is currently immersed in the recording process of his fourth studio album, which he is crafting with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen. “There is a sense of inherent creativity and imagination to these sessions,” Day says. “Everything seems to be in perfect balance, and I want to capture that energy as it’s happening. Nothing is over or under thought, it’s just in the moment.”

Young Dubliners Early St. Pat's Day Party!

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

The hard-rocking Irish band, the Young Dubliners owe everything to their fans. "They keep us honest, expecting good music both on the road and on the albums," mentions frontman Keith Roberts. Building a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, The Young Dubliners have become notorious for the whirling "jig pits" that erupt at their live shows. In fact, the group's origins can be traced back to Los Angeles' vibrant pub scene in which Dublin natives Keith Roberts (vocals, guitar) and Paul O'Toole first met. The Young Dubliners grew into a pugnacious music machine resulting in their debut, the Rocky Road EP (1994). It exhibited a hefty rock sound that made them a club favorite. Breathe followed a year later with the addition of Chas Waltz (violin, keys, harmonica, etc). By 2000, the band had morphed into a septet without O'Toole and released the critically acclaimed Red. The presence of the band sky-rocketed: Gabriel Byrne requested the band to write the theme song for his television show Madigan Men and they spent much of 2001 touring Europe with Jethro Tull, and the US as headliners and as openers for acts such as John Hiatt and Robert Cray. The Young Dubliners also revved up the crowd at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. From Irish-flavored anthemic rock to rowdy pub tunes, lead singer Keith Roberts voice is stronger than ever and the songwriting, performance, and production show a new maturity and artistic ambition. Roberts notes, "Since Absolutely, we've become a much tighter band. It's the first time we've had the same members for two albums in a row, plus we've had the benefit of relentless touring. I think those two factors have really come together to make us sound and write better."
