Friday, July 9 IVAN NEVILLE’S DUMPSTAPHUNK
What is now widely considered to be New Orleans’ most popular musical export, DUMPSTAPHUNK was recently voted 2007’s “New Orleans Best Funk Band”. I know this is a busy time of the year but you don’t want to miss this show. You’ve never heard anything like this, I guarantee it! (Listen)

Saturday, July 10 GARY HOEY
World renowned rock guitarist Gary Hoey comes to tupelo this weekend. With a collection of 16 albums and five top 20 Billboard hits, it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed in the top 100 greatest guitar players of all time. Whether it’s rock, blues, surf or Christmas music, Hoey’s command of each style makes his live show one of the most exciting on the circuit today. (Listen)

Sunday, July 11 THE SMITHEREENS
Brandishing heavy guitars and an unabashed fetish for British Invasion Pop, The Smithereens carved their niche on album rock radio and earned a reputation as a great concert attraction with sizzling pop songs including: “A GIRL LIKE YOU” “ONLY A MEMORY” “BLOOD AND ROSES” “BEHIND THE WALL OF SLEEP” “YESTERDAY GIRL” “BLUES BEFORE AND AFTER” “TOP OF THE POPS”.

New Bookings
August 13 TUPELO NIGHT of COMEDY
What’s better on a hot August Friday night than a cold beer and some comedy in a nice air conditioned venue? With tickets still only $17, this is a great deal for a night of entertainment.

September 22 GRIFFIN HOUSE
Go to a show in any city, and you’ll find House playing a small, crowded venue. You’ve probably never heard his oddball name (is it one guy or a band?). An intense House approaches the mic, sings a few lyrics over a simple chord progression, and instantly you’re locked on him.
The room is silent, save the frequency from the amplifiers. Interrupted only by his own nervous chatter, House plays a brief but immaculate set of folksy rock tunes that sends you dashing to the merchandise table to buy up all the CDs you can get your hands on.
This is how most fans, including VH1 Senior Vice President Bill Flanagan, have come to pay him accolades. “I bought (House’s) CD (after a show in New York City), and this never happens. I took it home and must have listened to it 20 times that weekend,” Flanagan said on the Aug. 28 edition of “CBS Sunday Morning.” Flanagan put House on an esteemed list of the five best emerging songwriters in the U.S., alongside Ray Lamontagne and Joseph Arthur.

October 16 DAVID BROMBERG
A singular performer/writer/arranger, Bromberg’s remarkable musical versatility and innovative resourcefulness have earned vast critical and popular acclaim. He is also impossible to classify: As one critic perceptively wrote, “David Bromberg fits no pigeonholes. He is part of everything contemporarily musical. He is a product of blues, country, jazz, folk, and classical music. From his early success as a guitar virtuoso, Mr. Bromberg has developed into a brilliant entertainer.”

November 21 THE SUBDUDES
In 1987, four musicians got together for what they envisioned would be a one-time performance at Tipitina’s in New Orleans. It was a night of mostly acoustic music – sparse instrumentation with a strong emphasis on songwriting and vocal harmonies. The show far exceeded expectations, and on that March night the subdudes were born.
Nearly 10 years later, after five well-received albums and several years of hard touring, the subdudes called it quits.
Today, they are once again the subdudes. And there’s still nobody in the world that sounds like them. So, welcome back the subdudes: Tommy Malone, John Magnie, Steve Amedée, Tim Cook and Jimmy Messa.
