 ROOTS ROCK N' ROLL FESTIVAL

Thu. Aug. 21 at 7:30pm
$12 adv./$15 door seated <21 w/parent


Larry Hosford Band :  Larry in his own words:  “Shelter, Warner Brothers: my record labels. Singing/songs: my life.  My music is usually called country rock, but I feel our material expands the boundaries of that term. The diversity I've enjoyed shows in this group's depth and range. Folk songs, cumbias, blues, rock, lounge, pop, calypso, Country & Mexican, Urban & Western, Rhythm & Broadway -- it's all there.

Freddie Steady Krc: Austin Music Awards Hall-of-Famer Freddie Steady Krc (rhymes with search) comes by his name honestly. This singer / songwriter / guitarist / drummer / renaissance Texan has plied his musical wares all over the world and is a  charismatic live performer. His first love was rock and roll, which had first found its way into his native Southeast Texas by way of the Beatles. He has played in the bands of the Sir Douglas Quintet , the 13th Floor Elevators , B. W. Stevenson and Jerry Jeff Walker . Freddie Steady has went on to pave his own original path through the Austin scene.

Peter Lewis Of Moby Grape & daughter Arwen: Peter Lewis is the son of legendary Hollywood star Loretta Young and ended up being a founding member of Moby Grape - one of the greatest American bands of all time. Moby Grape released their debut album in 1967 and it's still one of the most revered rock albums ever. In 1993 Peter released his first solo album "Peter Lewis".  Rolling Stone gave the album their maximum of five stars.

Michael Martyn: Michael Martyn is a veteran of the San Francisco, Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz ! acoustic folk music scene.  Michael's unique style blends country, folk and blues in to the modern Americana music format.  The story-telling and musical form of this accomplished songwriter will at times remind you of a cross between Ramblin' Jack Elliott, John Prine and Jerry Jeff Walker . A musical Swiss army knife,

The New York Times has praised the “strange beauty” of their music, saying that it “sends you right away to a place you've never been and might never want to leave—“ Andre Thierry , who hails from the same working-class area as Los Cenzontles, home to Creole and Mexican-American communities for generations, is an accordion virtuoso and a captivating singer with a smooth soul sound who has taken traditional zydeco and infused it with elements of hip-hop, blues, rock, and pop.

Mother Falcon began as a jam session among a few adventurous high school cellists eager to break out of the rigid repertoire predominating their musical training. In the seven years since, violins, saxophones, trumpet, piano, accordion, banjo, guitars and bassoon have joined that small group of cellists in an indie orchestra of twenty classically trained young musicians determined to push their playing and composing ever further forward.

On record, in intense chamber music concerts and in electrifying club performances, Mother Falcon has developed an intricately detailed, yet muscular soundscape of rock, jazz and hip hop rhythms fueling horn and string pieces interwoven with inventive vocal arrangements.

Forgotten Space 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Grateful Dead National Touring Tribute Band

Thu. Sept. 11 at 8pm
$10 adv./$10 adv. Dance – ages 21

There are nearly three hundred Grateful Dead tribute bands, only two that tour nationally.  Dark Star Orchestra and Forgotten Space from Texas. Forgotten Space is a North Texas-based band comprised of six diverse musicians with a deep understanding and respect for the rich and varied Grateful Dead songbook. Formed in 2006, Forgotten Space has developed a penchant for fearless improvisation coupled with an appreciation of the storytelling component of the Dead's music.

With a repertoire of more than 100 Dead-related songs, the musicians have meticulously bridged the gap between creating the sound and feel of the Grateful Dead experience and finding the balanced space to express their own personal identities as musicians. Staying true to form, the instrumentation of two guitars (Hunter Hendrickson and Kenny Withrow), bass (Bob McConville), keyboards (Will Hodges), two drummers (Bryant Russell and Jerry Saracini), and strong three- and four-part vocal harmonies creates an uncannily accurate representation of the real enchilada. Add to that a willingness to explore arrangements from all eras of the Dead's body of work (1965-1995), and you end up with an all-out, explosive mixture of good vibes, endless dance party, and deep space musical exploration.

Bud Denton and Gary Blackburn hammer out the lead and rhythm guitars. Everyone sings. This lends itself to naturally offering a wide variety of song selection. There is a lot of experience in the collective UTURN but none of that would matter if the rockin' ever stopped. U-TURN intends to never let that happen.

IRISH MUSIC MAGAZINE. Beoga (gaelic for ‘lively') are based in County Antrim, in the north of Ireland. The bedrock of their sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition. However, they are not afraid to incorporate other genres' nuances into their music.

From bluesy riffs to Astor Piazzola-style jazz, to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe, their music always returns to a wonderfully bouncy Irish sound. The result is traditional, with a huge sense of fun and adventure and it all works - wonderfully well.  The Wall Street Journal describes them as “the most exciting new traditional band to emerge from Ireland this century.” Irish Music Magazine writes, “Beoga are at the forefront of the new Irish wave.”

Their latest CD, Seinn, is a powerful collaboration borne of a long-time friendship and a shared love of Celtic music. Whether it's the mesmerizing Gaelic vocals of Mary Jane, or the superb and true musicianship of Wendy on the fiddle, these ladies have been making their mark with traditional audiences worldwide for over two decades.

Mary Jane and Wendy have both been recognized internationally for their solo music careers, and Wendy has been Mary Jane's steadfast comrade in the presentation of her music for many years. It seems only natural that these two impressive talents now come together to create a true musical partnership, which will combine their musical sensibilities, their strong Celtic roots, and their colourful personalities. On Cape Breton Island, the rich heritage of the region's Highland settlers was kept alive through music, songs, and stories. It was in Nova Scotia, while visiting her grandparents throughout her youth, that Mary Jane fell in love with Scottish Gaelic traditions and song. Mary Jane & Wendy will joined by percussionist & accordionist Cathy Porter & guitarist Seph Peters.

The Mermen and Henry Kaiser Play Dark Star

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 


Join us on a crazy adventure beyond the transitive nightfall of diamonds in this one-time-only special event

Sat. Nov. 8 at 8pm
$15 adv./$15 door D ance – ages 21 +

The Mermen , everyone's favorite psychedelic surf band joins forces with their pal, guitarist Henry Kaiser , to present a set-long version of the Grateful Dead's DARK STAR; played not to be imitative of The Dead, but driven by the unique styles and ideas of The Mermen and HK.  There will also be another set of surprising and unexpected musical covers. We can't tell you which set will be first, for that is up to the moment of the show. Join us on a crazy adventure beyond the transitive nightfall of diamonds in this one-time-only special event. 

The Mermen's style of music has been called a lot of things, surf, rock, psychedelic, ambient, psychobilly, thrash, punk, new-age...and really, it may be all of those things. Their name came from Jimi Hendrix's song "1983, A Merman I Should Turn to Be" which captures both their love of the ocean and an appreciation of great rock and roll.  The trio of Jim Thomas, Allen Whitman, and Martyn Jones first formed in 1989. They are multi-dimensional people, each with his own unique talent, but all with a love for the music. 

Guitarist Henry Kaiser has appeared on more that 250 albums in many different genres of music: rock, jazz, experimental, and world musics being the most significant. Just a few of his many collaborators: David Lindley, Richard Thompson, Herbie Hancock, Wadada Leo Smith, Terry Riley, Nels Cline, Steve Kimock, and Sonny Sharrock. Back in 1988, before there were Grateful Dead cover bands, Kaiser recorded anyone's first ever cover of Dark Star. This was released on the album THOSE WHO KNOW HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT. He later has collaborated with most all of the living members of The Grateful Dead on many different gigs and recordings. Henry's favorite band for the past couple of decades has been The Mermen. He is especially delighted to join them for this collaborative project.
