This Week
Friday, July 16 JOHNNY A
For Johnny A., the guitar has held a lifelong fascination, her six strings exerting a powerful influence and addictive beauty since the first time he held them. He is widely regarded as one of America’s finest contemporary guitarists. Gibson thinks so – their Custom Shop designed a Signature Edition guitar per his specific requests which, when it was marketed in 2003, placed him in an exclusive club that included legends like BB King, Wes Montgomery, Chet Atkins, Joe Perry, Pat Martino and Les Paul himself.

Saturday, July 17 THE GLENGARRY BHOYS
Described as bold, unorthodox, vibrant, and evocative, the “GLENGARRY BHOYS” hybrid of Canadian Highland Scots and French Canadian musical idioms has evolved into a sound that is weighty, authoritative, and extremely entertaining. Their energy and good humor, as much a part of the show as their musicianship, crosses all cultures and ages. From a small Scots-French-Canadian enclave in Eastern Ontario, these Celtic-Stompers, always pushing the musical envelope but never straying too far from the traditional whence they came, have earned a reputation as entertainers that challenge you to sit still during their engaging performances.

Sunday, July 18 GANDALF MURPHY and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams
This show is SOLD OUT!

Monday, July 19 BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY
Since their arrival on the music scene in 1993 in a legendary residency at Los Angeles’ Brown Derby nightclub, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s irresistible live show and aggressive, musically perceptive approach has proven them over time to be the singular standout among the numerous bands that launched the Nineties swing revival. The seven-man group forged a massively successful fusion of classic American sounds from jazz, swing, Dixieland and big-band music, building their own songbook of original dance tunes. Sixteen years later, BBVD is a veteran force that to this day adds new fans by the roomful every time they play.

Tuesday, July 20 MAT KEARNEY
This show is SOLD OUT!

New Bookings
September 12 CHAD and JEREMY
From humble beginnings in coffee houses and folk clubs in London, they were “discovered” by famed movie composer John Barry and recorded a string of hits (“Yesterday’s Gone”, “Summer Song”, “Willow Weep For Me”, “If I Loved You”, “Before and After”, “Distant Shores”). As former drama students, they were quickly snapped up by Hollywood, appearing as themselves in legendary television shows including The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Patty Duke Show, and Batman. Several decades later, they have been described as “Simon and Garfunkel meet Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore.” They serve up an appealing blend of vocal harmonies with inventive guitar and piano playing, spiced with their unique brand of banter, stories and sardonic wit. They are filming a PBS Special this month in Philadelphia.

December 2 RAILROAD EARTH
Railroad Earth’s music is driven by the remarkable songs of front-man, Todd Sheaffer, and is delivered with seamless arrangements and superb musicianship courtesy of all six band members. As mandolin player John Skehan points out, “Our M.O. has always been that we can improvise all day long, but we only do it in service to the song. There are a lot of songs that, when we play them live, we adhere to the arrangement from the record. And other songs, in the nature and the spirit of the song, everyone knows we can kind of take flight on them.” Sheaffer continues: “The songs are our focus, our focal point, they give the improvisation a starting point. The jams sort of ‘comment’ on the songs, and give them color. Some songs lend themselves to improvisation. They ‘want’ to be approached that way – where we can explore and trade musical ideas and open them up to different territories. But sometimes it is what the song is about.”
