  2. Marleys Ghost May 15

    Marley’s Ghost

    May 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

    An eclectic aggregation composed of singer/multi-instrumentalists Dan Wheetman, Jon Wilcox, Mike Phelan, Ed Littlefield Jr. and Jerry Fletcher – the band can sing and play anything with spot-on feel, from roots to rock, blues to bluegrass, gospel to stone country, which is what they’ve been doing – to the ongoing delight of a fervent cult that includes many of their fellow musicians – throughout their first quarter century as a working unit. Their trademark multi-part harmonies never cease to captivate, whether on record or in live performance.

    The band just keeps on rolling. They’ve recently completed recording a new album with Larry Campbell producing. Larry is not only a master musician but also a three-time Grammy-award winning producer and recipient of the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. A good deal of the album was recorded at the venerable Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock. Look for the album release in 2016!

    Balto

    May 20 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    Balto breathes new life into American rock. By throwing away the recipe book, they deftly blend a multitude of influences into a thoroughly musical and danceable gumbo that hits the spot every time.

    This band plays real music, the kind that makes your feet move and your head spin. Forget Russia, Balto is mercurial American roots music – song-driven rock’n’roll – a hair-raising live band out of Portland –electric guitars and Hammond organs, swirling psychedelia, an occasional Bonzo drum flourish, held down on bass by an ex-pugilist with a deep admiration for James Jamerson. You can feel the funk and boogie woogie, woven deftly within classic rock arrangements; the sensitivity of CSNY and the anthemic rock of The Black Crowes, the hooks of Tom Petty and the jabs of Stevie Ray Vaughn.

  10. ayron 3

    Ayron Jones & The Way

    July 2 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    Seattle guitarist and frontman Ayron Jones (Eh-Rahn), has become one of Seattle’s hottest up-and-comers with his brand of Seattle Rock. Jones has taken a hybrid style of guitar playing pioneered by Jimi Hendrix, in which the chord and solo are played at the same time, and infused the raw energy of punk with the inner-city attitude of Hip-Hop. The result is a soulful reincarnation of that iconic Seattle sound. Think, Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Nirvana.

Forging his own brand of incendiary, “psyouthern” roots music, like the mad love child of Son House and Patti Smith, Dege has pushed slide and resonators kicking and screaming into the 21st century, melding elements of folk, Delta blues, punk, rock, metal, hippie ragas, and outlaw county into one raw whole.

    Ray Wylie Hubbard – Friday Aug 26

    August 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    Ray Wylie Hubbard started his journey as a folk singer in his native Oklahoma before falling in with the wild and wooly outlaw Texas country scene of the ’70s — in large part by way of penning the immortal “Up Against the Wall (Redneck Mother),” which Jerry Jeff Walker recorded. After riding a decade-long career resurgence into the national spotlight with 2012’s acclaimed The Grifter’s Hymnal and his first ever appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman (“I didn’t want to peak too soon,” quips Hubbard, 68), the iconoclastic Texas songwriter is back to continue his hot streak with The Ruffian’s Misfortune — his 16th album. From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the ’60s to his wild ride through the ’70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the ’80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a songwriter’s songwriter in the ’90s, Hubbard was already a bona fide legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century.
