Junior Brown
Saturday, April 27

“A lot of people tell me they don’t like country music, but they like what I am doing,” says Junior Brown. “I hear that line more than anything else,” which is ironic because a couple of licks is all it takes to erase any doubts concerning Junior’s stylistic allegiance. His music combines the soul of country and the spirit of rock n’ roll. There’s usually a wide-eyed look accompanying one who witnesses Junior’s unique instrumental prowess for the first time… or the second, or third, for that matter. Junior invented his own guitar, one that combines the standard 6-string guitar and the steel guitar. In Junior’s hands, the guit-steel is an amazing tool, a means to creating some of the hottest, most heartfelt playing heard in years (and in a town like Austin, that’s saying something). His talents have led major magazines like Musician to herald Junior as a genius. Life magazine honored him as the only contemporary musician included in their “All Time Country Band,” and Guitar Player magazine’s 1994 “Best of…” listings made him their #1 lap steel player, #2 Country Artist, and #3 country album (Guit With It).

Pop Rock Legend and Pioneer Tommy Roe
Saturday, April 27

Tommy Roe wrote, co-wrote, and recorded six Top Ten Hits between 1962 and 1969, more than any other single artist/songwriter during this period. Four of them were RIAA certified gold records and two of his hits, “Sheila” and “Dizzy” topped the Billboard Chart at #1. Tommy had a total of eleven records reach the Billboard Top Forty. Mid show he will do a Q&A session while the stage is being changed over for the acoustic set with band leader and lead guitarist Rick Levy.

A personal message from Tommy Roe to Rams Head On Stage:

“Hi, This is TOMMY ROE, looking forward to our show on April 27 at Rams Head. This will be our first time at the club, and the band and I are excited. An Evening with Tommy Roe is something brand new, and a chance for you, the fans, to experience my music old and new, up close and personal. The band is great, led by my manager and old friend, Rick Levy. We also do an unplugged acoustic segment, and a very special question and answer period with the audience where you get to ask me questions about my music, songwriting, career…almost anything. Of course, the hits will be there, plus rarities, B-sides, and songs from my brand new album, ‘Devil’s Soul Pile’. I am proud to be making relevant new music, and after a few years off the road, its GREAT to be back! As long as people keep wanting to hear me, I will be there! Thanks.”

Sunday, April 28 – TWO SHOWS

Hiroshima, a group whose music falls between R&B, pop, world music, and jazz, has long had its own niche. The band integrates traditional Japanese instruments into their musical blend and has generally been both commercial and creative within its genre.

In the three decades since Hiroshima first convened, the Los Angeles-based ensemble of Dan Kuramoto (keyboards/ woodwinds/ composer/ producer), virtuoso June Kuramoto (koto/ composer), Kimo Cornwell (piano/keyboards/composer), Danny Yamamoto (drums/percussion), Dean Cortez (bass) and Shoji Kameda (taiko drum/percussion) have blended jazz, pop, and rock with traditional Japanese folk music and instruments. The resulting sound was a pioneering voice in the contemporary world music movement of the late 20th century.

Ever evolving, the Grammy-nominated group, highlighted by the sound of June Kuramoto’s shimmering koto (noted by Stanley Clarke to be the world’s best) creates music and sounds totally unique–with depth, heart and soul.
