Thursday, October 25, 2018 - 8:00 PM

A free-to-the public show with the Bovine Social Club, this show promises to be a hoedown at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.

Bred on the northern banks of the Delaware River, Bovine Social Club is a grassy, twangy, swinging breed of Americana sounds sure to get your dancing cow on. One wicked lineup of seasoned jam musicians backs the thoughful lyrics of vocalist, philosopher, memoirist and former monk, Samuel Saint Thomas.

The Bovines’ carefully crafted twang-grass songs of longing, loving, picnicking, gardening, confessing, and making the days go slow have sure become something to moo about. Produced by Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone and happily fertilized by country, bluegrass, folk, and Juju vocabularies, their self-titled debut charted at #7 on the Roots Charts and #37 on the International Americana charts. BSC is one of the fastest growing and most highly respected new Americana bands in the Northeast, sharing some of the finest festival and concert stages with some of the finest talent. Bovine Social Club continues to grow their musical family while each new performance becomes another great experience for their avid fans.

 

The Sensational Soul Cruisers

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 8:00 PM

The Sensational Soul Cruisers are an 11 man horn group fronted by four soulful vocalists who pay homage and tribute to classic performers from Otis Redding and the Drifters to Barry White and the Commodores. With a lifetime of study and hard work, this group captures and emulates the distinctive style, skill and choreography of a classic show band. The Soul Cruisers are former members of famous R & B and smooth soul groups, capturing the true essence of the Jersey Shore sound and its true R&B roots, the classic Philly Soul, Motown, Disco, Stax, and the music of Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago.

While the group has been known as the Soul Cruisers for the past 18 years, the rhythm section was known for many years prior to that, being the band behind Eddie Testa, as Eddie and the Cruisers. That band and its name inspired the somewhat popular (albeit entirely fictionally based) movie of the same name.

Luna Tart has been tickling fancies for a very long time. She has recorded two albums “Luna Tart Died” and “Send in the Clown” both are occasionally played on WWOZ in New Orleans and who knows where else. Luna’s songs have been interpreted by drag queens and Luna herself got to open up for Jinhx Monsoon. Luna has also been back stage and on stage with Bianca Del Rio and she’ll never stop talking about that. Luna’s website is Lunatart.com it’s old and needs to be dusted off but hey so is she. 

Velvet Caravan

Friday, November 2, 2018 - 8:00 PM

If one were to name one Savannah-based musical act that most exemplifies this time-honored, eclectic and adventurous city, they’d be hard to find a more appropriate ambassador than Velvet Caravan. This unorthodox, high-energy, acoustic-based quintet of guitar, violin, standup bass, percussion and keyboards (including accordion) has, over the past few years, emerged as one of the shining lights of Savannah’s burgeoning music scene. This has resulted in an envelope-pushing group that’s just as successful at dazzling jaded cocktail drinkers as they are at commanding the rapt attention of serious music aficionados in whisper-quiet recital environments. “We try to describe ourselves as a Gypsy Swing Band or Gypsy-Latin-Swing Band, or Gypsy-Tonk-Latin-Swing Band, or Southern-Gypsy-Tonk-Latin-Swing Band, or simply ‘European Redneck Music with a Classical Influence,’” he says with a chuckle “Our ultimate goal is to be a creative, successful and ever-evolving band that makes great music and puts on one hell of a show.”

Paul DesLauriers Band

Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 8:00 PM

The Paul DesLauriers Band is made up of guitarist and singer Paul DesLauriers, and the rhythm section of Greg Morency on bass and Sam Harrisson on drums. Having worked together on various projects for nearly 20 years, the band has become bound by friendship and an unshakable mutual respect.

These Montreal-based, Canadian Blues veterans blend rock with straight-ahead blues in a way that echoes the vibe of the great power trios from the 60’s and 70’s, yet they take the music to another level via modern stylings and an attack that’s free of clichés. It’s all wondrously peppered with pleasing funky bass lines and a swamp-blues backbeat.

Stepping into the musical role of Linda Ronstadt is the incomparable multi-talented powerhouse vocalist Tristan McIntosh.

Session Americana

Sunday, November 11, 2018 - 7:00 PM

Session Americana (Boston) is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft an musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack’s bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that’s not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag”.

Cedric Burnside

Friday, November 16, 2018 - 8:00 PM

“My school was a juke joint/From a kid till I was grown/And blues is really/All I ever known”

Take one glance at the iconic tintype photograph which serves as the cover to his new album, “Benton County Relic,” and you know immediately that Cedric Burnside is the real deal. “When I first saw it, I thought I looked like an outlaw,” he laughs.

He still lives on several acres not far from the Holly Springs, Mississippi, home where he was raised by “Big Daddy,” his grandfather, the late singer/songwriter/guitarist R.L. Burnside whom Cedric famously played with, just as his own father, drummer Calvin Jackson, did. Cedric was literally born to the blues, more specifically, the “rhythmically unorthodox” Hill country variant which emerged from Mississippi, where he grew up surrounded (and influenced) by Junior Kimbrough, Jessie May Hemphill and Otha Turner, as well as delta musicians T-Model Ford and Paul “Wine” Jones.

Grammy-nominated in 2015 for Best Blues Album for the Cedric Burnside Project’s Descendants of Hill Country, as well as the recipient of the Blues Music Awards honor as Drummer of the Year for four consecutive years, Cedric’s latest album offers a showcase for his electric and acoustic guitar, recording 26 tracks in just two days with drummer/slide guitarist Brian Jay in the latter’s Brooklyn home studio in a rush of creativity.

And while Cedric humbly refers to himself in the album’s title, the music within is anything but ancient, the rich tradition of Hill country blues dragged kicking and screaming into the modern-day with crackling electricity amid its nod to life’s essentials. If the blues has traditionally been about getting through hard times, “Benton County Relic” offers the kind of deep baring of the soul that enables us to transcend oppression, whether in the 19th century or in the precarious present.

Last Waltz Celebration by The 'The Band' Band

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 8:00 PM

The original Band’s final performance, in San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom, was called The Last Waltz, and set the standard by which all farewell concerts are measured. We celebrate that great night back in 1976!

The Band produced some of the most original and soulful music that set the standard for contemporary music in Anerica with classics like Up on Cripple Creek, The Weight, Ophelia, It Makes No Difference, and I Shall Be Released.

The Last Waltz Celebration features The ‘The Band’ Band’s 3-piece horn section, as well as the full 5 pieces of the ‘The Band’ Band. One in the audience last summer said “I had no idea how much I loved The Band!”

As with the original Last Waltz, when Bill Graham catered the show to acknowledge a historic event, the Opera House will serve hors d’oeuvre by 14-Acre Farm.

Eaglemania

Nov 23, 2018 - Nov 24, 2018

If you love The Eagles, then this is the show to see. With an intimate room, phenomenal sound, all seats close, and a great listening and viewing balcony, it all adds up to a great opportunity to experience your own style of Eaglemania!

With a passion for perfection, Eaglemania brings the ultimate Eagles experience, scrupulously delivering the harmonies and musicianship of one of the greatest bands of all time.

Formed in 1971 by Glen Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, they later added Don Felder, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmitt. With five number one singles, six Grammys, five American Music Awards, and six number one albums, the Eagles were (and continue to be) one of the most successful musical acts ever.

Yarn

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Even the most dire circumstance can offer opportunity for new beginnings. Just ask singer/songwriter Blake Christiana or any of the other members of the once Brooklyn based Americana band called Yarn. He’ll point to the band’s album, the boldly optimistic, This Is the Year. A seamless blend of vibrant, inspired, back porch melodies and narrative, descriptive lyrics that detail the challenges faced when one’s life is jolted off its bearings, the record documents in detail the band’s determination to move forward. It’s an album about sometimes skirting the rules, a tack that was inspired by musicians they admire—Waylon and Willie, Merle Haggard and other Texas troubadours with a distinctly renegade reputation. In an era of click-bait and sound bites, Yarn provides a real experience.  They’re not just a live band, they’re a band for people who want to live.
