“So what’s good that’s coming to at Rams Head On Stage?”

This is a frequent question that we hear from our customers, friends, family, local business owners whom we see daily, my hair dresser, our  mechanic, my husband’s bookie (just kidding, honey), etc. How do we answer such a complex question? With another question: “Well, what kind of music do you like?”. Because the honest truth is that due to the fact that we have approximately 30 shows per month, there is something for fans of just about every genre. There are the big names that everyone has heard of such as Dr. John and The Oak Ridge Boys, and then there are the lesser known, somewhat “niche” artists that come through (check out Rasputina and Hiroshima). And there are always some “hidden gems” that appear as opening acts, which is always fun to potentially find “the next big thing” (I found it fascinating that Milow was the opening act for Kat Edmonson last night and that he is HUGE in his home of Belgium. We’re talking Big Star). For example, it wasn’t so long ago that we had both John Mayer and Jason Mraz here as opening acts!

In an attempt not to go on and on about the great blend of shows that we have coming through over the next several months (and I COULD go on and on, ask my husband or my dog), I will try and break it down for you by just doling out some information on three cool shows in particular:

Sons of Cream
Wednesday, March 20

Ginger Baker’s son Kofi, along with Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm, team up with guitarist Godfrey Townsend…to pay humble tribute to one of the world’s greatest power trio: The “Cream”.

The Cream were undeniably the first rock “supergroup” of the 1960s. Although they were together for less than 3 years, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton left a gigantic impression on the world of rock music forever.

The energy of classic Cream shines through when Sons of Cream takes the stage. The band is making their own mark and they’re ready to bathe in the “sunshine of your love”

Rockapella
Thursday, March 21

If you haven’t heard of them or seen them live before, they are an a cappella group formed in the 80’s in New York City, and have played here several times in the past. Their name is a portmanteau (ooh, big word) of “rock” and “a cappella”. They sing original vocal music and a cappella covers of pop and rock songs; over time, their sound has evolved from high-energy pop and world music toward a more R&B-style sound.

The little miracle that keeps the crowds coming back year after year and constantly draws new fans is Rockapella’s astonishing full-band sound. A sound that seems to be impossible coming from just five guys with microphones. No instruments, no tracks, no mirrors – and their hands never leave their wrists. “We’re making every bit as much music as the whole ‘Glee’ chorus – but with only five guys,” says Rockapella’s human beat-box Jeff Thacher.

Creed Bratton
Friday, March 29

An American actor and musician, a former member of The Grass Roots with hits like “Let’s Live for Today” and “Midnight Confessions”.

Nowadays, he is best known for playing a fictional version of himself on the American adaptation of the hit television show “The Office” on NBC.

This is a quote that came directly from his bio, which cracked me up: “Creed Bratton is an enigma to himself….even though he’ll deny it. HE expects to be sued by all of ‘The Office’ cast members after this tour.”

(AS OF MARCH 11TH, THIS SHOW HAS UNFORTUNATELY BEEN CANCELLED. SORRY TO SEE IT GO!)

Oh, and don’t forget, Standing in the Shadows of Motown, Live! featuring Leela James, Peabo Bryson and James Jamerson, Jr. will be here this Monday, the 11th!

So what’s good? If you email me and tell me what show you’re excited about, I’ll know that you read this blog and I will also personally enter you in a contest (that I just made up) to win two tickets to one of the shows above. I’m that nice. Lprice@ramsheadgroup.com

Have a great weekend!
