Popa Chubby

Friday, June 1, 2018 - 8:00 PM
Popa Chubby’s collection of jet-fueled originals just grew with the release of his new CD, “The Catfish.” Popa Chubby offers up 12 tunes that embody the badass attitude that defines the King Of The New York City Blues. “The Catfish” delivers punch after punch of musical inspiration drawing on 25 plus years of street smarts and road worthy musicianship. It embodies what makes Popa Chubby who he is. Regal and Delicious, the recording shines with multiple flavors and worldliness. “It’s about the excitement and the feeling of raw power. All I can tell you is you need rock and roll in your soul and I am the man in control. The Blues are alive and well and Rock and Roll will never die! Are you ready to rock?” As the Philadelphia Inquirer put it, “Truly a bluesman for the new millennium, Popa Chubby has an abiding affection for the tradition but uses it only as a springboard for his distinctive style.” That style translates into blues-rock numbers about, in Popa’s words, “love, life, betrayal, diesel, jet fuel, marriage, murder, stress and passion,” subjects that many would say are the only ones that matter. His performances these days have never been more tempestous and soulful. Despite his imposing presence, the shaven head, tattoed arms, and performance style he describes as “the Stooges meet Buddy Guy, Motorhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi meets Robert Johnson,” Poppa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genre’s most popular figures.

Mary Fahl

Saturday, June 9, 2018 - 8:00 PM
“Sounding like no other singer of her generation” (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer-songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s band October Project, an East Coast chamber-pop group that recorded two poetic albums for Epic, selling over 300,000 albums. With what the Boston Globe dubbed “a voice for the gods” Fahl wraps you up in her rich contralto and transports you to every corner of a song with power and subtlety. As a solo performer, she has recorded albums for SONY Classical and V2 Records, and has written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song (“Going Home”) for the Civil War epic, Gods and Generals. During the show, Fahl and her remarkable band will perform an unforgettable version of Judy Collins’ timeless Both Sides Now, as well as the debut performance of a song just completed, which was written by Mary and John Lissauer for the audio version of Anne Rice's new novel "The Wolves of Midwinter," scheduled to be released this coming October 15. With a repertoire of beautiful melodies and sumptuous textures, her acclaimed version of “Dark Side of the Moon” and her own elegant compositions that draw on classical and world music sources, Fahl can either put forth big, cinematic, and lush songs, or she can simply be by herself onstage with no more than a guitar, a spotlight, and her unmistakable voice. She will also perform songs from her long-anticipated album, “Love and Gravity.” [button link="http://maryfahl.com/" background="7a7a7a" size="20" link_color="ffffff"]Artist Website[/button]

Reckless Kelly

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 8:00 PM
Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas. ? The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice. Their father taught his four sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. They overcame hardships, struggled for recognition, and learned the lessons of the trial and error that defined them. In one sense, it’s remarkable in the way of any musician, athlete, or businessperson who bucks the odds. In another, though, it’s utterly natural that Reckless Kelly, born in the dreams of the two Braun brothers and their heritage but nurtured in the bumpy road of maturity, became the very essence of Americana music in all its far-flung glory. “We came along in that second wave of the movement,” Cody Braun says. “Son Volt’s album Trace had a major effect on us. People like Joe Ely, Ray Kennedy and Robert Earl Keen were always big supporters. Our goal was to make music that had a country vibe but a solid rock edge.” In the end, all the recipe required was to just add water. Water facilitates life. It enriches the soul. As Music Row magazine proclaimed, “In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like.” “This” is Reckless Kelly.

Alexis P Suter

Friday, June 15, 2018 - 8:00 PM
Alexis P. Suter is the owner of that big, booming voice you can hear roaring out of Brooklyn into the heart of North America and beyond.  Alexis P. and her band are on the rise as accolades pour in and they continue to captivate audiences from town to town. Miss Suter and her powerful and unique ensemble artfully blend the lines between Blues, Soul, Roots and Rock music. When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after her opening set for him at BB Kings in NYC. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked, “It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.” Alexis burst on to the music scene as a regular performer at Levon Helm’s legendary Midnight Rambles held in Woodstock, NY. Levon was captured by what he called Alexis’ wonderful spirit and had her and the band open for him nearly 100 times. Levon said, "She is one of those wonderful spirits, she's got her arms around you; you can feel that” Suter and her band have been blazing trails and taking their music to festivals and venues both nationally and internationally, pushing the blues just a bit beyond its normal boundaries with Suter's  powerful, deep soulful voice charging forward.

Black Lillies

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 8:00 PM
Founded by multi instrumentalist and vocalist Cruz Contreras, The Black Lillies have created their own brand of country, roots, rock and blues via Appalachia. The proof that The Black Lillies are such a potent band is etched into the vinyl of ‘Hard To Please,’ the band’s fourth and latest studio album. It’s an alternately rip-roaring and deeply intimate record, showcasing both frontman Cruz Contreras’ lyrical evolution as a writer and a more sonically sophisticated side of the band. The album stands as the finest yet in The Black Lillies’ outstanding catalog. When it came time to record, the bar had already been set high with the group’s previous releases, which were hailed as “buzzworthy, genre-mashing roots music” by Rolling Stone Country and praised everywhere from Vanity Fair and The Wall Street Journal to CMT and Entertainment Weekly. The sound reflects their raucous live show, which prompted NPR’s Ann Powers to name them a top pick at SXSW, and has earned them festival slots from Bonnaroo to Stagecoach, as well as the honor of playing The Grand Ole Opry more than any other independent band in history. It’s nothing short of remarkable how far the band has come in their six years, both in terms of miles and in terms of musical growth. Through the ups and the downs, they’ve established themselves as one of the hardest-working and most dynamic bands touring today. With a re-imagined six-piece live lineup, it won’t be hard to please Black Lillies fans, and with an album as great as ‘Hard to Please,’ they’ll bring a whole lot of new ones into the fold, too.

The Trainjumpers - FREE

Thursday, June 28, 2018 - 7:00 PM
West Virginia's own The Trainjumpers plays funky music with fat backbeats and soul music that sounds like it was made in a different age. In praising its "soul-swinging" style, late great Steubenville rock critic Mark J. Miller once said the Trainjumpers "sound like they haven't listened to anything after 1975." That might be stretching it a bit, but the band's first three records - "Deadtown" then "Bring on the Trainjumpers" and finally, "Wide-Eyed Tragic Myth," all have definite reggae, soul and Americana influences. A new recording is currently in the works that would further stretch the sound. The band's focus on groove is logical considering the drummer is Brian "Nugget" Gorby, the center of the Hackensaw Boys' rhythmic throwdown the last few years during extended international touring. Nugget is a great throwback reggae/funk drummer and he and guitarist Matt Heusel have been playing together for years, while looking forward to making more good music. Bassist/vocalist/outlaw Scotty Harkness is a Trainjumpers veteran, a great player, and goes way back to the early Wheeling jam years with Heusel and Gorby. The tight sound the little group makes is testament to the years of logging musical minutes together.

If you have never heard them, well, look out! They’re musically superb, imaginative, and always changing set lists, like the Dead. Experience them for yourself!

Donna The Buffalo

Saturday, June 30, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Fireside Collective (Free Show)

Sunday, July 15, 2018 - 7:00 PM
The Fireside Collective, “Bluegrass, Newgrass, perhaps Progressive folk…” These are some descriptions mandolinist and songwriter Jesse Iaquinto chooses to identify with. “Depending on where you come from and your experience with folk music, you may think we’re very traditional, or on the other hand, consider us a progressive act. We appreciate both ends of the spectrum and may lie on a different end on any given night.” While roots music lies at the core of the Collective’s songs, a willingness to explore the boundaries and present relevant new material remains fundamental. The band burst onto the scene in early 2014 following the release of “Shadows and Dreams.” The album weaves bluegrass, funk, rock, and blues influences into a refreshing representation of modern folk music. From the opening track “Poor Soul” with it’s energetic bluegrass overtones to the closer “Shine the Way Home”, the album takes listeners on a journey through simple love songs to complex themes such as metaphysics and coexistence. The album, recorded in Asheville at Sound Temple Studios, features guest musicians from Asheville’s rich acoustic music scene alongside members of the Fireside Collective.

David Wilcox

Friday, July 20, 2018 - 7:00 PM
His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. Considered a 'songwriter's songwriter', his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others.  In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched.  He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit. Reflecting on well over 20 years of record-making and touring extensively around the US and world, Wilcox says, “Music still stretches out before me like the head-lights of a car into the night.  It’s way beyond where I am, but it shows where I’m going.  I used to think that my goal was to catch up, but now I’m grateful that the music is always going to be way out in front to inspire me.”

Salute to Bob Dyan by TTBB

Saturday, July 21, 2018 - 8:00 PM
There is perhaps no more influential, profound, successful, or enigmatic songwriter in history than Bob Dylan. From the "protest songs" of his early years to his introspective, sometimes caustic commentary on love and humanity, his songs have become an integral part of Americana, and have garnered countless awards and honors around the world. In 2016, he added the Nobel prize for literature to his dossier. The THE BAND Band, the acclaimed tribute to The Band and a MCOH favorite known for their annual celebration of The Last Waltz, will return for a summer show to celebrate the music of Bob Dylan, performing songs from his folk days in Greenwich Village, NY, his breakout into rock and roll after “going electric” in 1965, his celebrated partnership with The Band through the late sixties and early seventies, and beyond. From the hit songs "Like A Rolling Stone," "Lay Lady Lay," and "Just Like A Woman" to deep cuts from his ground-breaking albums Blonde On Blonde, Nashville Skyline, and New Morning, to The Basement Tapes, his mysterious collaboration with The Band, Dylan's music was a cornerstone of the soundtrack of his generation. The music of Neil Young, a friend to both Dylan and The Band, will be celebrated by Norm Vincent, who also performs his rendition of “Helpless” with The THE BAND Band at their Last Waltz shows. Don’t miss this special show honoring two of the most beloved songwriters of our time! About The THE BAND Band: The THE BAND Band is renowned for their Tribute to Bob Dylan and The Band.

His band is top-shelf too, pulling together all the parts of a master's music and performing it like you want to hear it. Benny and the Jets have performed all across the country and also overseas, last summer entertaining our troops in Iraq. This is a classy show, pure fun and great music, sung and played as it should be.
 

Chatham County Line

Saturday, July 28, 2018 - 8:00 PM
Based on looks alone, Chatham County Line conjures a sepia-toned timelessness by huddling around a single microphone on stage, playing  traditional string band instrumentation while clad in suits and ties. But for nearly two decades, the Raleigh, NC-based outfit has consistently crafted top-notch, original modern acoustic music that draws upon American roots forefathers like bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe and folk innovator John Hartford while acknowledging its own members’ backgrounds in rock ‘n’ roll band From elegant European concert halls to large American folk festivals, Chatham County Line has become a fixture on both sides of the Atlantic, where the musical relationships fostered by its consistent line-up are apparent through an unspoken chemistry that allows the freedom for improvisational flashes that seem as polished as the rest of its set.

In My Life: John Lennon Tribute

Friday, August 3, 2018 - 8:00 PM
In My Life: The John Lennon Tribute, is performed on our stage exactly 36 years to the day that the great John Lennon sadly lost his life. An especially heartfelt tribute, it is led by Carlo Cantamessa as John, performing on guitar, piano and vocals. Cantamessa is an internationally known and recognized performer of John Lennon's music, having toured the world portraying John Lennon with The Cast of Beatlemania and various other Beatlemania-oriented touring shows for over thirty years. Cantamessa brings a lifetime of experience to the role, personally transforming into Lennon onstage every night. The Beatles first caught his attention in 1964, and later he began portraying John Lennon onstage in 1978. Since then, promoters, agents and buyers around the world have encouraged Cantamessa to put together a John Lennon tribute show, now a reality. As one theater owner put it during his introduction of Carlo’s solo show, “For my money, this guy is the closest anyone can get to the legend. He will channel John Lennon before your eyes and ears”. The rest of Cantamessa’s band includes Jim Filgate on lead guitar, piano, synthesizers and vocals. He is a legend, known as accomplished, versatile musician and music instructor who has taught in Connecticut area for over twenty years, well-known for his work with numerous musical acts, including his stellar performance as George Harrison in The Cast of Beatlemania. John Delgado performs on drums, percussion and backing vocals, and has been an integral part of the Connecticut theater and music scene for over three decades. He has toured nationally and internationally, most notably performing with The Cast as Ringo Starr. Cantamessa’s superb band is rounded out by Michael Filgate on bass guitar and vocals. Well-known for his work with Atlantic Records in the 1980's, he has performed with several bands touring the Northeast and was responsible for many voice-overs for companies such as Pepsi, UPS, and American Can. He also owned and operated North Shore Recording Studios, working with many major label recording artists.

Cast of Beatlemania

Saturday, August 4, 2018 - 8:00 PM
The Cast of Beatlemania recreates the sights and sounds of The Beatles so faithfully that you will recall when the world was engulfed in the most pleasant fever of all: BEATLEMANIA! Three different costume changes coincide with the evolution of Beatles music and times. Theirs is the first, original and only complete representation of the musical force called The Beatles. The Cast features former members who starred in the Broadway production and have performed in all fifty states and over twenty foreign countries, including Canada, England, Mexico, Brazil and Japan. They were individually selected from thousands of musicians who auditioned from all over the U.S. for the Broadway show, “Beatlemania.” The Beatles music set the pop rock standard for most of the 1960's. Now, in the 2000's, The Cast of Beatlemania recalls the memories of that exciting era when the Fab Four ruled the world of rock 'n' roll. In the early 1960's, The Beatles not only became a musical force but a sociological entity as well. Their hair, clothes and humor all contributed to their amazing impact. Probably the most celebrated of rock groups, The Beatles dominated rock music from the early 1960's until they formally disbanded in 1970. Originally inspired by such U.S. performers as Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly, The Beatles recaptured most of the freshness and excitement of the earliest days of rock 'n' roll. Even today, The Beatles remain universally popular in a music culture that thrives on look-alike and sound-alike bands. Through the exacting artistry and talent of bands like The Cast of Beatlemania, the music of the Beatles lives on.

The Weeklings

Friday, October 5, 2018 - 8:00 PM
The Weeklings channel the music of The Beatles. The band performs Beatles material with a style that is at the same time authentic and freshly original -- clearly distinguishing their musical approach from anyone on the "Beatles tribute" scene today. For the Weeklings, "channeling" means far more than simple note-for-note reproduction.  The band lives in the spirit, humor, swagger and bold creativity of the 60s, bringing the Beatles to life, not through costumes and gimmicks, but through their own original edge. They infuse this vision into newly arranged covers such as "Paperback Writer" and "Baby You're A Rich Man", as well as in the original Beatles-inspired power pop rock 'n roll that they compose and record. The Weeklings show their audiences both what The Beatles were, and what they might have produced if they were still together today.
