NEWLY ANNOUNCED AT RAMS HEAD ON STAGE IN ANNAPOLIS

Bronze Radio Return
Saturday, June 29
*ALL AGES MATINEE

Formed in 2008, Bronze Radio Return’s line-up took a few years to solidify, though most of the band’s members were orbiting each other for years at the Hartt School, one of the country’s best schools of music, located in Hartford, Connecticut. For their debut album, Old Time Speaker, the band relocated to Nashville for a two-week period, to, as lead vocalist Chris Henderson puts it, “A place we’d never been with a producer we’d never met, and played a bunch of songs we’d never played before.” For such an inauspicious set of circumstances, the band managed a solid and well-received debut, and forged a lasting bond with producer Chad Copelin. Old Time Speaker established the band’s relentless touring schedule, including an invitation to represent the Connecticut music scene by performing for President Obama at an event in Bridgeport, CT in 2010. Fan favorites “Digital Love” and “Lo-Fi” have been picked up for advertising and television licensing and the album landed on CMJ’s Top 200 Album Chart.

Their new album, “Up, On & Over” will be available on June 25th.

FOR FANS OF: Ben Howard, Mumford & Sons, Of Monsters And Men, Iron & Wine

Ruut – CD Release Party
w. Eric Scott

Saturday, July 6
*ALL AGES MATINEE

Her various musical influences (including classical, gospel, jazz, Broadway, songwriters such as Carole King, Paul Simon, Elton John, Michael Jackson and Tori Amos) shaped her piano-based story-telling approach to her own artistry.

After the birth of her second daughter, Ruut returned to the studio to create “Glimpse”, her first full-length album in 3 years. It’s in the songs she wrote for this new release that Ruut has entrusted her listeners with her most honest writing to date. Ruut says of her new album, “Experiencing motherhood has made me realize how quickly life is passing, and that I need to live in every moment. I’m not too worried about the outcome anymore. I just want to write and sing about what has meaning to me – being human, finding and holding onto love, and the journey that brings us face to face with our most authentic selves.”

The 10-song album features full production on most tracks, including the title track and upbeat anthem-like second track, “Make it Good”. Ruut’s signature piano-vocal style still shines in many of the ballads. The album will be available on July 6th.

FOR FANS OF: Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Elton John, Sarah McLachlan

Swing Out Sister
Monday, July 8

Swing Out Sister is a British sophisti-pop group best known worldwide for their 1986 song “Breakout”. Other hits include “Surrender”, “Twilight World”, “Waiting Game” and a remake of the Eugene Record soul composition “Am I The Same Girl?”

Although Swing Out Sister’s music is unashamedly commercial pop, their impeccable indie credentials, jazz-tinged arrangements, and knack for clever hooks move them closer to the indie dance territory of St. Etienne or late period Everything but the Girl than to the cookie-cutter dance-pop of Kylie Minogue or Paula Abdul.

The Sweet
feat Original Member Steve Priest

Friday, July 12

Legendary rock band The Sweet shot to the top of the charts in the 1970s with such hits as “Ballroom Blitz”, “Fox On The Run”, “Love Is Like Oxygen”, “Little Willy”, “Hellraiser”, “Blockbuster” and “Action”. They produced their first number one hit in 1973 and quickly made a name for themselves among hit makers in the 70’s. Brian Connolly departed the band in 1979 and the band continued on as a three piece. They released three albums during this time and not seeing the success of the first string of albums, they disbanded in 1981.

In January 2008, Steve Priest assembled his own version of The Sweet inLos Angeles,California. He enlisted fellow Brit Stuart Smith, an old friend and a classically-trained former axeman for the bands Sidewinder and Heaven & Earth, on guitar.L.A.native Richie Onori, Smith’s bandmate in Heaven & Earth, was brought in on drums. The keyboard spot was manned by ex-Crow and World Classic Rockers alumni Stevie Stewart. Front man and vocalist Joe Retta rounded out the lineup. The band spent the next few years playing festivals throughout theU.S.andCanada, including high-profile shows like the Whisky a Go Go inHollywood, the Pollstar awards show inLos Angeles, Moondance Jam inWalker,Minnesotaand Rockin’ the Rivers inMontana.

April 2009 saw the release of a new two-disc, career-spanning greatest hits album called Action: The Sweet Anthology, which was released on Shout Factory Records and received a coveted four-star rating in Rolling Stone Magazine.

The band has been touring with this current lineup since 2008 (with the exception of Stuart Smith, who left the band in 2012). With two gold records and four singles in the top 10 under their belts, Sweet will continue to rock fans of all ages worldwide.
