Howard Jones The Songs, The Piano, and The Stories

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

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

It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene with his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers. Anyone who was around in the mid to late eighties will remember those high energy gigs and his first two albums Human's Lib and Dream into Action. They lived in the higher reaches of the album charts in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Australia and many other countries in the 1984-86 period, and the hits kept coming........New Song, What is Love?, Pearl in the Shell, Hide and Seek,(which he performed at Live Aid in 1985), Like to Get to Know You Well, Look Mama, Things Can only Get Better, Everlasting Love and the quintessential No One is To Blame, which reached No.1 in the US. Howard Jones re-mastered those first two classic albums 'Human's Lib' and 'Dream into Action' and played them both live in their entirety for the first time at the IndigO2 in London's O2 Arena Complex. There-mastered albums are available from www.howardjones.com. A special re-mastered box set of the 12" mixes was also released together with a DVD of the IndigO2 concert. A third box set in the trilogy was then released which featured re-mastered versions of the next three albums 'One to One', 'Cross that Line' and 'In The Running'. A classically trained pianist, Jones applied his technique to the early synths particularly the Roland Juno 60, the Jupiter 8 and the Moog Prodigy. He also pioneered the classic Roland TR808 drum machine and the Sequential Pro-One. In the early days he was triggering sequencers live on stage whilst playing and singing, something that no one had done before. These days he still operates on the cutting edge of technology and has been one of the leading exponents of the Roland Fantom G8 and the Roland V-piano. Many contemporary giants of the dance world have shown interest in working with Howard which has resulted in tracks such as 'And do you Feel Scared?' with Eric Prydz, 'Into the Dark' with Ferry Corsten, a 2012 collaboration with Grum and the 2013 version of 'Things Can Only Get Better' with Cedric Gervais. My Space used this version to launch their new service at the Miami Winter Music Conference in March 2013 by advertising the track on 300 taxis, 50 trucks and even a plane with a banner which flew up and down Miami Beach. The track was released worldwide in July 2013 and reached the top 10 in the US Dance Chart. Howard Jones incorporated this version into his 2013 live performances.

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.

Vision Quest Entertainment Presents The International Piano Experience feat. Louis Colaiannia, Lisa Downing, Julio Mazziotti and Mario Lopez Santos

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

The Soiled Dove Underground and Vision Quest Entertainment present an unforgettable evening of original solo piano music featuring four internationally famous solo piano artists – Julio Mazziotti from Mendoza Argentina, Mario López Santos from Aranda de Duero Spain, plus two Colorado artists making a Denver stop in their international touring schedules, Louis Colaiannia, and Lisa Downing. Each of these musicians is an accomplished composer, performer, and recording artist, with CDs that have gained worldwide recognition. The compelling original music of these broadly imaginative composers ranges from from Latin influenced jazzy new-age and upbeat neo-classical, to pieces reminiscent of an intensly somber and dramatic soundtrack for a “Twilight” - type saga.

Louis Colaiannia is a multi award winning pianist and composer. His most recent album Closer was recorded at Imaginary Road Studio and produced by Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton. It was Number 1 on the One World Music Top 100 Radio Chart and nominated for a Zone Music Award and an EPR Award. His performances have been called “stunning in their power and beauty”. Alejandro Clavijo of "Reviews New Age" called Colaiannia’s music “an explosion of sounds and melodies.”

Lisa Downing is a multiple award winning, international concert pianist who is re-defining the genre of solo piano. Critics have said that “Lisa’s performance will blow away all your previous assumptions about solo piano,” and “Lisa’s playing touches all your emotions, providing them with a startling mastery of her own beautiful and heartfelt voice.” Ms Downing performs all over the world with Grammy Award winning musicians such as Liz Story, David Lanz, Will Ackerman, Suzanne Ciani, and Peter Kater.

Julio Mazziotti has been described as a masterful, strong and powerful pianist who’s original compositions create an an exciting rich and memorable experience. His ability to connect with audiences in all parts of the world is evidenced the moment he steps onto any stage. A nattive of Mendoza, Argentina, Julio performs in concert worldwide to fascinated and adoring concert goers. The distinctively Latin influence of Tango rhythms from his native land, and the intense emotions of his Italian heritage entice listeners to join him in a culture uniquely his own.

Mario López Santos is one of the hottest rising stars in Spain today. Mario began his musical career as a young, classical prodigy studying at the Royal Top Conservatoire of Music of Madrid. He has evolved over the years to become a respected and critically acclaimed performer and composer. Mario’s music has been described as emotionally touching, intriguing and technically impressive. His compositions are at once powerful, sensuous and compelling. Sr. Santos has found the perfect fusion of Classic, World and Modern Contemporary Piano that have thrilled audiences all over the world!

SMOOTHJAZZLOVERS.ORG Presents Generation Next Featuring Nicholas Cole, Lebron & Lin Rountree

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

With successful outings at some of the country's premiere festivals including Berks, Seabreeze, Capital Jazz, Newport Beach, Norfolk and Catalina Island Jazztrax, plus a Billboard Top 10 hit single 'Let It Ride' in 2014, Generation neXt featuring Nicholas Cole, Lin Rountree & Lebron is ushering in a new dimension of smooth jazz/R&B grooves with style and flair. Combining for 15 chart-topping singles, these world class musicians and rising stars from Trippin 'N' Rhythm Records/Cutmore Entertainment are at the cutting edge of contemporary jazz with R&B/soul influences. 21-year old keyboard phenom Nicholas Cole displays the technical proficiency and artistic vision of those twice his age. Cole’s 2012 release ‘Endless Possibilities' scored 4 Top 10 Billboard singles and the hit, 'Snap', featuring Vincent Ingala was a Top 5 Billboard smash. In addition to a thriving solo career, Nicholas has become an in-demand producer and collaborator, working with Ben Tankard, Willie Bradley and Julian Vaughn among others. A leader in Soul-jazz and R&B, trumpet master Lin Rountree returns with his 5th studio CD 'Soulfunky' (scheduled for May 2015 release). This follow up to 2013's 'Serendipitous' will take you on a journey that will have your head boppin' and body rockin'. Lin was showcased in the 2012 Whitney Houston film, ‘Sparkle’, and has performed with icons including the late George Duke, Marcus Miller, Tim Bowman and Kem. “It’s all about the sound.” That is the powerfully simple principle inherent in saxman Lebron’s music. Brian McKnight, Phil Perry and Will Downing all influenced his phrasing, expression and solos as did Gerald Albright, Kirk Whalum, Grover Washington, Jr. and Nelson Rangell. His debut release ‘Shades’ featured Paul Brown on the hit 'Groove City' and an appearance by producer Darren Rahn. Lebron's much anticipated sophomore release will be out in July 2015.

All Ages Show! Matt Wertz with Samsel and The Skirt

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

What began with a homemade drum groove on Matt’s front porch in Nashville sprang into a varied ten-song album that is equal parts a dip in the electric blue waters of the 80s and a testament to the artistic breadth Wertz has developed at this point in his career. The year was 1987. Reagan was in the White House, Bill Cosby was the king of Thursday nights, Dirty Dancing was selling out theaters. And on stereos across America, singer-songwriters like Bryan Adams, Richard Marx, and Kenny Loggins were rocking the airwaves with hits that would go on to do the near impossible: cater to popular demand and stand the test of time. It was 1987, and Matt Wertz was an eight-year-old kid in Liberty, Missouri. He went to Louis and Clark Elementary, he took piano once a week from his Nana, he rode shotgun in his mom’s Oldsmobile station wagon. And on those lucky afternoons when he could tune in to Casey’s Top 40, Wertz listened to songs that would become the soundtrack of an era – Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer,” Steve Winwood’s “The Finer Things,” Lionel Richie, Peter Cetera – classics set to drum machine and Stratocaster. He didn't know it then, but those radio waves were settling into Wertz’s memory and slow-curing his own songwriter sensibility. And after a decade of commercial success, seven studio albums and thousands of miles touring, they were the songs Matt found himself going back to over and over again – “Footloose,” “Mandolin Rain,” “Hold on to the Nights” – music that was flat-out fun to listen to. Those hours of rediscovery inspired Matt Wertz to create his newest and most ambitious project to date, Heatwave. What began with a homemade drum groove on his Nashville front porch has sprung into a distinct, varied ten-song record that both pays homage to the lush, accessible sounds characteristic of that era and evidence the breadth of artistic reach Wertz has come to embody at this point in his career. “Get to You,” the opening track on Heatwave, was written during the initial porch session with producer Brandon Hood, confidently dipping its toes in the electric blue waters of the 80s. The drum groove brings to mind the classic loop beats of that era and immediately establishes the album’s fluid, dynamic tone. With “Whenever You Love Somebody,” Wertz delivers the aching, honest lyrics his fans have come to expect, this time setting them against a backdrop of resonant beats and velvety guitars. In addition to Wertz’s interpretation of his favorite 80s influences, Heatwave also boasts tracks that feature his wide-ranging scope as a songwriter. Between working independently and on major labels like Universal Republic and Nettwerk Records, Wertz has become a veteran musician who deftly employed his years of songwriting mastery to this latest offering. After 12 years based in Nashville, co-writing with the best in the business, Wertz’s own insights manifest themselves best on the introspective tracks “What I Know Right Now” and “Thing About Freedom.” “What I Know Right Now” explores a contemporary folk blend of warm harmonies and brushed snare, and “Thing About Freedom” gently draws the album to a close with pensive lines and a melancholy steel guitar. Heatwave bridges a lifetime of musical history. Wertz uses the melodies of his Missouri childhood as a springboard into an exciting new realm of modern musical possibilities, interpreting his influences in a striking, singular way. As Wertz himself would say, these are the songs he’d want stuck in his head. And that’s a good thing for everyone.

Davy Knowles with Hollis Brown

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

Blues, rock, roots and Americana all have a promising future in the talented hands of Davy Knowles. Just six years into his professional music career, Davy has an impressive record of accomplishments. He has been endorsed by some of the biggest names in the industry, and he has shared the stage and the recording studio with some of his heroes. Born and raised on the Isle of Man (a tiny country located between Ireland and England), Davy fell in love with music making at age 11 when, after hearing the Dire Straits' classic "Sultans of Swing" on his father's car stereo, he learned by ear to play it on his father's guitar. Along with Mark Knopfler, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Peter Green, Eric Clapton/Cream and Rory Gallagher were early, significant influences, and they continue to color his playing and songwriting today. After a relentless tour schedule for the better part of four years in support of his first two albums ("Roll Away" and "Coming Up For Air"), 2013 has allowed Davy to spend more time writing new music and playing select live shows, including a number of intimate, solo/acoustic dates. He joined Peter Frampton, a mentor and the co-producer of his sophomore album, for an August date on Frampton's Guitar Circus Tour, which included a stirring take on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that also featured the wizardry of Sonny Landreth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z45ePUh4So0). Throughout his career, Davy has been surrounded by great musicians, and he's made the most of every occasion.

Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones

Genre: Folk/Blues/Rock
Doors: 7:00PM
Show: 8:00PM

“Lost time is not found again.” This ancient idiom is at the heart of brothers Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin’s long, tumultuous relationship. However, in Dave’s own words, “Sometimes Fate, or God or the Universe, gives you a rare chance to prove an old saying is wrong.” The brothers’ new album, appropriately titled ‘Lost Time’ (September 18/Yep Roc Records), does just that. Listen to lead track “World’s In A Bad Condition” now via the Wall Street Journal: http://on.wsj.com/1NgR2Wx Over ‘Lost Time’s’ twelve tracks, Dave and Phil pay homage to a number of artists and songs that had an early, formative influence, in Dave’s words “the masters of the Blues, the most transcendental form of American music.” Everyone from Lead Belly to James Brown is represented, but the figure who looms largest on the album, and in the brothers’ own musical journey, is Big Joe Turner. The Alvins met Big Joe as teenagers, and he would mentor them for the remainder of his life. They remain his humble students, and cut four Turner songs for ‘Lost Time.’

Their last show was later that same month at the Hollywood Bowl with Shelby Lynne and Lyle Lovett. It was not long after that when Adams decided to venture on his own and become a solo artist. Peter's arrangement and interpretation of Stephen Foster's "Hard Times", the opening track on the eastmountainsouth CD, appeared in Cameron Crowe's film, "Elizabethtown" and also was included on the soundtrack album. Peter's songs and music from eastmountainsouth (as well as solo) has appeared in over 30 films and television shows in the US, including One Tree Hill, Smallville, The Mentalist and Alias. Years later, sales of eastmountainsouth's self-titled and only release rank in the top 20 in Amazon.com sales under the Alternative Folk category.

Tickets on sale 8/14 at 10AM! Joe Ely

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

Panhandle Rambler is Joe Ely back home, returned to the always dusty, perpetually windy, generally arid, frequently smoldering, and seemingly barren landscape around Lubbock where he grew up and first began playing music. A place that has hosted generations of dry land farmers and wildcatters. It’s where Joe found his calling as a writer and performer. First located that unmistakable voice. Learned to carry himself upright and open, to move with determination. In the rock’n’roll era, the vast spaces of west Texas have been filled with great music. Joe Ely stands in a tradition born out on these gritty plains. It includes Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Tanya Tucker, Guy Clark, Delbert McClinton, Don Walser, Terry Allen, Lloyd Maines, his daughter Natalie Maines, and Joe’s enduring musical partners, Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. It is a land where you can see for miles and miles and miles. Only those who don’t know it find it barren. For it’s full of stories if you know where to seek them. And it has customs and amusements all its own. Even the forever dipping oil wells have their role. “In high school, we used to get somebody to buy us a six pack and go out there to the fields and ride the front part of those oil pumps all night long,” Joe remembers. Now, Ely lives in Austin and spends much of his life on the road. But when he’s accumulated enough song ideas, Lubbock is where Joe heads. “Somehow, just driving for hours down those country roads is still the best place for me finish my songs.” Panhandle Rambler is one of the most personal albums Joe Ely’s ever made. It brings forth this terrain, the spirited people it produces and that special sense of destiny, be it terrible or glorious, that its very vastness creates. “Wounded Creek” starts the album with what you might call a Western fantasy, except that the “bushes and the brambles,” the traffic light, the stray dog and the cold wind are all completely brought to life. “Sometimes, when I was a kid, you’d look outside and the only things you’d see would be these huge radio towers, must have been fifty of a hundred feet tall, just swaying in the wind,” Joe said. “Wonderin’ Where,” perhaps Panhandle Rambler’s most beautiful melody, pays tribute to those trembling towers, the railroads which carried other things equally unimaginable distances, the “cross between a river and a stream” where he played, and the dreams and nightmares that flitted across that kid’s mind and heart, and the loneliness of bearing such secrets. If it is possible to write a love song for a place, this is one of the great ones, “trying to find a verse that’s never been sung to hearts that need relief.” “Here’s to the Weary” is the story of all the greatmusical refugees, from Woody Guthrie, Bob Wills and Muddy Waters to the rockabillies—Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, the shadows of the others—who soothed our “weary and restless souls” with nighttime musical magic. It’s also typical of all the songs on the album. The place doesn’t necessarily always win, but, as in “Magdalene” and “Coyotes are Howlin’,” it’s the one thing that carries a sense not so much of permanence as of inevitably. The two sides are fully summarized in the almost giddy “Southern Eyes” and the fatalistic “Early in the Mornin’.” Of course, every Lubbocker album needs its legendary tales. Here that territory is covered by “Four Ol’ Brokes,” which combines a hobo yarn with the ballad of a gambling scam, and “Burden of Your Load,” in which true love triumphs over evil, if just barely, we hope. Equally legendary, but true in every respect, is the closing song, “You Saved Me,” which is a love song to Joe’s wife, Sharon. The lyric never mentions her name, but no one who’s known Joe Ely longer than about a day could mistake her. Legendary tales and legendary musicians. Panhandle Rambler, largely recorded in Austin, features some of the most respected local musicians: drummer Davis McClarty, guitarists Lloyd Maines and Robbie Gjersoe, Jeff Plankenhorm, and Gary Nicholson, bassist Glen Fukunaga. There were also Nashville sessions, with Music City’s usual superb playing, led by guitarist Gary Nicholson. Joe wrote all but two of the songs: “Magdalene” by Guy Clark and Ray Stephenson, and “When the Nights are Cold” by his original Flatlanders sidekick Butch Hancock. This is a classic Joe Ely album. It has moved me, every time I’ve heard it, with a certain kind of awe. One reason is that, long before you hear “You Saved Me,” he put everything he has into telling the world about a place in the world, and through that, reaching his own emotional center. It’s beautiful and it’s inspiring.

Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Doors: 8:00PM
Show: 9:00PM

24-year-old singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and American Idol finalist Casey Abrams, proves he is here to stay with his self- titled debut album on Concord Records. Casey, co-wrote sang played bass, acoustic guitar, drums, Wurlitzer and even recorder. Casey Abrams opens with the finger- snapping cool of “Simple Life,” affirming there’s a genuine artist at work here. “Ghosts” and “Get Out,” prove Casey’s capability as a contemporary songwriter, “Wore Out My Soul” shows his R&B balladeer chops and he makes musical mini-movies on both “Great Bright Morning” and “Midnight Girl.” “Blame It On Me” features Casey’s soulful bass line and vocal agility. Romantic desire is made sexy on “A Boy Can Dream,” and he delivers a vocal tour de force on “Dry Spell.” To cap the disc, Abrams pays homage to Ray Charles on “Hit The Road Jack” performed as a slinky duet with fellow Idol contestant Haley Reinhart (produced by Steve Jordan). Casey Abrams’ story is that of a born natural, but it’s also the story of a person who studied diligently and worked extremely hard, striving toward his dream of a life in music. He was born in Austin, Texas to professionally accomplished, extraordinarily creative parents. Casey’s mother, Pamela Pierce, a screenwriter and teacher, also plays piano and sings. His father, Ira Abrams currently teaches at Idyllwild Arts Academy, the distinguished private school in the mountains above Palm Springs, California that proved instrumental in shaping Casey’s musical life. The walls of Casey’s childhood home resonated with, “the music of the 1950s and ‘60s,” he states. Even then, he was “hearing those blues riffs and little things that make a song what it is.”

All Ages Show! Green River Ordinance

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

Over the decade-long journey from their first incarnation as 13 and 14 year old kids in Fort Worth, Texas to the upcoming release of their latest EP, “Chasing Down the Wind,” Green River Ordinance has evolved steadily. “Chasing Down The Wind” features the continued growth of Green River Ordinance’s honest, hopeful songwriting, and soaring harmonies. Written on the banks of the Caney Fork River in rural Tennessee, their new EP captures the spirit and freedom that comes from escaping the rush of the big city and rediscovering the simple things in life. Released on 6.18.13, “Chasing Down The Wind” debuted at the top of the iTunes charts and in the Billboard Top 100. GRO’s intensity and strong fan connection prompted EMI to sign them to Capitol Records and in 2009, the band’s debut album, “Out of My Hands,” shot to the top of the billboard charts and catapulted their two singles “Come On” and “On Your Own” into the top 40. GRO has shared stages with acts like Bon Jovi, Train, Zac Brown Band, Blake Shelton, Counting Crows, The Eli Young Band, Miranda Lambert, The Goo Goo dolls, Gavin Degraw, Third Eye Blind and many others. GRO has had their music played on 56 network and cable shows, in three films, and had their videos featured on MTV, VH1 & CMT. GRO’s independent follow up releases have continued to push the band to national success with singles charting in both Country & Hot AC formats and 4 singles in the top 5 of TX Country. Walking the lines of Country, Rock, Pop, and Folk, Green River Ordinance is a band that constantly challenges the borders of genre. However as their music continues to mature and change, GRO still holds true to the pursuit of music that speaks to the soul and moves your feet. Green River Ordinance is currently in the studio working on their 3rd full length album set for release in the Fall of 2015.

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.

Pat McGee

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

McGee’s self titled upcoming record, his 10th effort and it’s a doozie. Recorded in Los Angeles in 2014, with a legendary band: Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, Waddy Wachtel, Danny Kortchmar, Jeff Pevar and guests: Little Feat’s Paul Barrere, Blues Traveler’s John Popper, Train’s Pat Monahan, Punchbrother’s Gabe Witcher as well as the PMB powerhouse players! McGee wrote all the music himself inspired by the classic albums of the 1970’s that he grew up listening to. To land this incredible band, dubbed The Section, for these sessions was truly amazing and you can hear the passion and creativity on each track. These are the same players who helped create the signature sounds of Jackson Browne, James Taylor and so many more iconic artists. Pat McGee Band was founded in 1995 and released and eight albums (2 on Warner Brothers) and a live DVD. PMB toured relentlessly for ten years all over the United States, in one stretch doing 98 shows in 103 days. They were asked to perform for President Clinton, sold out venues all over the US, shared the stage with The Who, Allman Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, Counting Crows, Rat Dog, Levon Helm & more. The band was crushed with the untimely death in 2006 of founding drummer Chris Williams. He was the backbone of the band and an integral part of the signature sound of the group, both live and in the studio. McGee has assembled various star-studded ensembles over the years aand continues to have a focus on the song supported with strong harmonies, percussive acoustic guitars, mandolins as well as a tight rhythm section and tasteful electric guitars.

Four80East and Matt Marshak

Genre: Jazz

Show: 8:00PM

Four80East
Four80East is the brainchild of producers Rob DeBoer and Tony Grace, also known internationally for their indie label/production house, Boomtang. Born in 1997 as a small indie UK release, The Album went on to revitalize the Smooth Jazz world the following summer when the first single, Eastside, broke through in the US to became the seventh most-played track on Contemporary Jazz radio that year. Their sound lies at the forefront of what has been called the nu jazz movement taking the best of contemporary jazz and pop styles and aligning them to produce a improvisational dance-infused sound. This Toronto-based group draws from a variety of sources to make their music happen, including found sounds, field recordings and sound effects alongside their finely crafted studio recordings. As with many so-called acid jazz groups, their music is not clearly defined as smooth jazz or any other type of jazz for that matter. Four80East operates on a plane that expresses their own stylized ability under an umbrella of electrified and funky vibes. They have a pronounced R&B influence that fills in the layers between jazz and soul. Improvisational by nature, their recordings are filled with club-inspired beats, exotic rhythms and soulful melodies, some of which are tied to interwoven vocals. A unique sound that can only be described as Four80East.

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

Music has long been Cook’s passion. Growing up, he absorbed a variety of influences from Kenny Rogers and Dire Straits to Kris Kross and Boyz II Men. After college, he could have thrown all his energy into his career as a graphic designer or joined a band. He moved to Tulsa and music won out as he began touring and recording indie projects. When his brother Andrew decided to try out for American Idol in Omaha, he enlisted David to come along. In an interesting twist of fate, Andrew didn’t make the cut, but David did. “It’s still weird to me how the whole thing worked out,” he admits. “I get asked all the time: ‘What would I be doing if I hadn’t auditioned?’ Well I’d probably be working in Tulsa, still making records, still touring, still trying to do all those things, but probably having to do other things to pay my rent or mortgage. The parameters would certainly be different, but I don’t know if a lot of the day to day would necessarily change except maybe I’d have a day job.” Once the American public got a taste of Cook’s talent, it was obvious he wouldn’t be needing a day job. His self-titled RCA debut bowed at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart, spawning two Top 20 singles, the platinum “Light On” and “Come Back To Me.” The album sold more than one million copies and made Cook an in demand touring artist. Cook followed up with his sophomore album, ‘This Loud Morning‘, produced by Matt Serletic (Rob Thomas, matchbox twenty, Collective Soul), which debuted in the top ten. Cook’s stats are impressive. Collectively his songs have sold over five million tracks and ringtones, including his two platinum and one gold-certified singles, but the numbers that mean the most to Cook are his charitable endeavors. He has raised over one million dollars for brain tumor research and funding, and traveled thousands of miles to perform on USO Tours for soldiers in both Kuwait and Iraq. Cook’s latest project is Cook’s 11th album and he’s enjoying this new season. “If every record is a tight rope walk, this one doesn’t have a safety net,” he says with a grin. “I’m excited about it because if you’re not willing to take the bumps and bruises that come along with maybe falling on your ass every once in a while, then you don’t really deserve the rewards that come along with it on the other end. I’m enjoying the gamble. This is what it is. I’m throwing it out there. Hopefully people will love it and want to come along for the ride and have as much fun as we’re having.”

Griffin House with Sam & Margot

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

Although Springfield, OH native Griffin House didn't begin playing guitar and writing songs until he was 18, the power of his music struck an emotional connection with audiences immediately. The athletic gifted House shocked his family by turning down a golf scholarship to focus on a new path making music. "Sports were really a big part of me and how I grew up," he says. "So deciding not to take that scholarship was a turning point for me in choosing a new path for myself, a new life making music." There were some issues to deal with first, however � he couldn't play the guitar he'd bought from and friend, nor had he ever written a song. "I took a couple of guitar lessons and got so frustrated that one day I kicked the strings off my guitar," he recalls with a laugh. "It sat there for about a year, but I took it to school (at Miami of Ohio) with me and made up my mind I was gonna learn how to play. One night I picked up my guitar and wandered around campus till I could barely keep my eyes open, trying to play this one chord over and over. Finally, around 4 a.m., my hand got used to it and I formed my first G chord." Not long afterward, he wrote his first song for the high school sweetheart with whom he'd parted ways after graduation. When she came for a visit, House played it for her, and it brought her to tears. "Then I was hooked," he says, "I thought, 'Oh, man, if I can make people cry, I'm gonna keep doing this. I'm gonna make as many people cry as I can!'" After laughing at the memory, he puts the experience in perspective: "What I was drawn to was the power of the song, how it could affect people emotionally." The epiphany caused the neophyte's creative juices to bubble over, and he got really good really fast. After graduating, he joined some of his buddies who'd moved to Nashville, and started doing solo gigs at the bottoms of bills in local clubs. Within months, he was headlining, surprising himself at his rapid development. "I was working in a gift shop downtown for $6.50 an hour," he remembers, "and four months later I was flying to L.A. and New York for meetings with record labels." House signed with Nettwerk and banged out his first CD with his band in five days, before moving from Nashville to Cincinnati. He spent most of the subsequent three years on the road, while also finding time to record several "direct-to-fan" releases, a pair of EPs (House of David Vol. 1 & 2) and the 2006 digital release Homecoming. He didn't fully understand at first, but writing and recording these songs about his "own issues" was the best sort of help he could possibly offer others, friends and strangers alike. His intelligent and heart-felt lyrics and melodies in such songs as "The Guy Who Says Goodbye to You Is Out of His Mind" and "Better Than Love" have garnered commercial and critical acclaim alike. From being featured on the CBS Sunday Morning Show, to touring with the likes of John Mellencamp and the Cranberries, House continues to gain national recognition and currently is headlining his own tour across the U.S.

ALL AGES!

Jon McLaughlin has been playing piano and making music since childhood. He was born and raised in Indiana, and eventually ended up at Anderson University, also in Indiana. With the support of the university's record label, Oranghaus, a few friends and an old Chevy van, McLaughlin wrote and recorded music, and toured extensively throughout his college years before he was signed to Island Records in 2006. The following eight years had one common denominator for Jon McLaughlin: writing and producing songs, releasing albums, driving around the country playing music with his band and collaborating with fellow artists like Sara Bareilles, Demi Lovato, Xenia and Need to Breathe, among others. He has shared the stage with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Adele, One Republic, Bon Jovi, Colbie Caillat, Parachute, and Duffy. And, in 2014, a dream came true when Jon supported the legendary piano man himself, Billy Joel, in selected dates across the country. This coming fall, Jon will be touring with fellow Nashville singer songwriter, Ben Rector. Jon has also made his mark in music for film and television. In 2008, McLaughlin had a cameo appearance in the Disney movie, Enchanted, and performed the Oscar nominated song "So Close," both on the film's soundtrack and at the 80th Academy Awards. Jon's songs have been featured in major films such as Georgia Rule and Bridge to Terabithia. Jon's music has been featured on TV shows such as Scrubs, So You think You Can Dance, Ghost Whisperer, The Event as well as major network promotions. Jon has appeared on talk shows such as The Tonight show with Jay Leno, CBS Saturday Morning, The Today Show, and The Bonnie Hunt Show, among others.

Genre: Jazz
Doors: 6:00PM

In truth, one look at the titles of his hit albums from only the past decade proves that KIM WATERS knows quite a lot about romance and love with such stellar achievements as Love’s Melody, One Special Moment, From The Heart, Someone to Love You, In the Name of Love, All For Love, You Are My Lady and Love Stories, his classic 2010 collection. Inspired by such jazz icons as Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Coleman Hawkins, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Paul Desmond and Cannonball Adderley, Kim was born into a musical family. The Maryland native picked up his first instrument, the violin, at the age of eight. "That didn't go over well with the fellas," says Waters, who later found his true calling on the alto and soprano saxophones at age 13. Shortly afterwards he began playing in a band with his brothers, James (who he still performs with) and Eric, and his old friend, jazz piano legend Cyrus Chestnut. Over the years, KIM WATERS has shared stages with many of the best including Ray Charles, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Phyllis Hyman, Gerald Albright and Grover Washington, Jr. to name a very few. Waters recently relocated to Elk Grove, California from his longtime Baltimore area home. MY LOVES is sure to further captivate all KIM WATERS fans and earn him innumerable new ones as well again affirming that he has rightfully been acclaimed The #1 Urban Jazz Saxophonist and is here to stay! In this regard, Kim once stated, “I enjoy helping others and it is my hope that my music in some way brings positivity to the world. I believe that the world cannot live without new music - I know I can’t!”

"That didn't go over well with the fellas," says Waters, who later found his true calling on the alto and soprano saxophones at age 13. Shortly afterwards he began playing in a band with his brothers, James (who he still performs with) and Eric, and his old friend, jazz piano legend Cyrus Chestnut. Over the years, KIM WATERS has shared stages with many of the best including Ray Charles, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Phyllis Hyman, Gerald Albright and Grover Washington, Jr. to name a very few. Waters recently relocated to Elk Grove, California from his longtime Baltimore area home. MY LOVES is sure to further captivate all KIM WATERS fans and earn him innumerable new ones as well again affirming that he has rightfully been acclaimed The #1 Urban Jazz Saxophonist and is here to stay! In this regard, Kim once stated, “I enjoy helping others and it is my hope that my music in some way brings positivity to the world. I believe that the world cannot live without new music - I know I can’t!”

Tickets on sale 8/28 at 10am! Toadies Heretics Tour

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

"There's a certain uneasiness to the Toadies," says Vaden Todd Lewis, succinctly and accurately describing his band—quite a trick. The Texas band is, at its core, just a raw, commanding rock band. Imagine an ebony sphere with a corona that radiates impossibly darker, and a brilliant circular sliver of light around that. It's nebulous, but strangely distinct—and, shall we say incorrect. Or, as Lewis says, "wrong." "Things are done a little askew [in the Toadies]," he says, searching for the right words. "There's just something wrong with it that's just really cool… and unique in a slightly uncomfortable way." This sick, twisted essence was first exemplified on the band's 1994 debut, Rubberneck (Interscope). An intense, swirling vortex of guitar rock built around Lewis's "wrong" songs and abstract lyrics—like the smash single "Possum Kingdom," subject to as much speculation as what's in the Pulp Fiction briefcase, it rocketed to platinum status on the strength of that and two other singles, "Tyler" and "Away." Perhaps in keeping with the uneasy vibe, that success didn't translate to label support when the Toadies submitted their second album, Feeler. Perhaps aptly, things in general just went wrong. "We got approval for a record," says Lewis, "and somewhere in the process of handing over the masters to get mixed, it got unapproved. So we went back to the drawing board." Eventually some of the Feeler tracks made it onto Hell Below/Stars Above—a sophomore offering that came seven years after Rubberneck. "It was a very weird, trying time," says Lewis, who didn't see the next blow—the sudden departure of bassist Lisa Umbarger—coming. "We went out on tour, and immediately the band split up," he laughs sardonically. "We kinda shot ourselves in the foot." They released a live album, Best of Toadies: Live from Paradise, and it was over. Coming out of the Toadies, Lewis, guitarist Clark Vogeler and drummer Mark Reznicek were disillusioned. Vogeler went to work as a film editor, Rez hooked up with the country-western band Eleven Hundred Springs. Lewis initially thought, "Fuck this whole business. I'm gettin' out. I just wanted to do anything else." Toadies fans, though accepting, stuck with them, often inquiring as to the band's activities. Says Lewis, "People just asked me "So, what are you doin' now?" Although he'd been "foolin' around" with Rev. Horton Heat drummer Taz Bentley, he answered, "I don't know. Nothin'. This, that and the other. Workin' around the house, workin' in the garage, just toolin' around." Soon it occurred to him that music was all he wanted to do. "I'm a musician. That's what I do, and I'm not happy not doing it." Eventually Lewis and Bentley formed the Burden Brothers in 2002 and released a slew of EPs, two albums and a DVD while touring profusely. Meanwhile, "Possum Kingdom" never left the airwaves, enjoying constant rotation at major modern rock stations. Fans clamored for a Toadies reunion. "The band never went all the way away;" says Lewis. They regrouped in 2006 for a couple of sold-out shows around St. Patrick's Day, and again the next year for the same thing. In August 2007, when personnel changes with the Burden Brothers resulted in that band going on hiatus, Lewis began writing. "I was pissed off again and wanted to keep goin'," he says. "I didn't know what I was writing, right out of the gate, but… it was just coming out very "Toadies." Lewis called Rez and Vogeler and asked if they were interested in making another record. They were—and the Toadies officially reconvened, signing with Kirtland and recording No Deliverance with David Castell (Burden Brothers, Blue October) at Fort Worth Sound in Fort Worth and Music Lane in Austin. Lewis says the band has gone for a "bare knuckle" sound, amping up the psychotic stomp heard on Rubberneck and Hell Below… on the grinding, relentless title track as well as the seething, death-of-a-romance gem "So Long Lovey Eyes" and the towering, sludgy "Man of Stone." The upshot is a taut, exhilarating listen that is quintessentially Toadies. Lewis is stoked on "the freshness of this new record. Getting back into this, back into the feel of the Toadies, is cool. Lewis, Rez, Vogeler and new bass player Doni Blair (Hagfish, Only Crime) are optimistic that their indie incarnation will succeed, thanks to the support of their devout fans—and equally supportive label. "The music industry has changed so much," says Vogeler. "A band like us can be on an independent label and still get the music out to the people who want to hear it." The Toadies are now free to pursue success on their own merit and muscle. And things are starting off nicely: On August 2, The Toadies will play Lollapalooza and, following the album's release, they'll embark on a nationwide tour offering old fans and those to come—as he recently told SPIN, "Balls. A ton of balls." "Getting back to the bare knuckles element of the Toadies," continues Lewis, "is what I really enjoy, after being away from it for so long." Vogeler and Rez concur. "I'm here and still doin' it," furthers Vogeler, "because the music's good." And Rez proclaims in his thick Texas drawl, "The Toadies are back in business." And suddenly, everything wrong is right.

Tickets on sale 8/14 at 10AM! 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…
