LAST MINUTE ADD, The Hackensaw Boys!

The Hackensaw Boys
Sunday, November 17
GENRE: Country/Bluegrass

The Hackensaw Boys are an eight-man acoustic unit that combines the primitive strains of old-time mountain and string band music with modern-day sensibilities. In fact, the group has shared the stage with acts that range from experimental indie-rockers the Flaming Lips to hip-hoppers De La Soul.

For Fans Of: Chatham County Line, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers, The Devil Makes Three, Trampled By Turtles

Brenda Russell
Monday, January 13
GENRE: R&B/Pop

REMEMBER THIS SONG!!!??? (I do. I used to belt it out in my car while driving to school. And I don’t care who knows it)

With a unique musical perspective, intimate voice and prolific treasure-trove of lyrics, singer-songwriter Brenda Russell proves that a truly glowing talent only deepens with time.  Composer of the classics “Get Here,” “If Only For One Night,” and the Grammy-nominated “Piano In The Dark,” Brenda’s songwriting prowess and chameleon-like ability to shift between musical genres and combine styles trumpeted ovations in 2005 with the opening of the Tony Award-winning hit Broadway musical The Color Purple–a show for which she, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray co-wrote the music and lyrics. Brenda and her co-authors were also nominated for a 2007 Grammy in the Best Musical Show Album category for the original cast album.

For Fans Of: Patti Austin, ReginaBelle, Ashford & Simpson, Roberta Flack, Anita Baker

Marc Cohn
w. Rebecca Pidgeon
Saturday, January 25

Grammy Award-winning American folk rock singer-songwriter and musician, best known for his song “Walking In Memphis” from his eponymous 1991 album “Marc Cohn”. Marc’s latest offering Listening Booth: 1970 is a collaboration with longtime producer-arranger-multi-instrumentalist and fellow Grammy Award winner John Leventhal, who states, “Marc’s voice is the unifier. There’s a depth and a soulfulness that I don’t think people are aware of.”

For Fans Of: Bruce Hornsby, Dire Straits, Jackson Browne, Steve Winwood, Don Henley

Rebecca Pidgeon:

She’s been recording albums for more than 20 years, but Rebecca Pidgeon had a creative breakthrough as she began working on the music for “Slingshot,” her compelling sixth solo effort. Rebecca Pidgeon has also shared stages with such artists as Aimee Mann, Madeleine Peyroux, Jeffrey Gaines, Peter Himmelman, andKebMo, and joined founders Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young at the 2011 edition of Farm Aid.

NRBQ
Tuesday, January 28
*Ask about our Ultimate Performance Package for this show
GENRE: Roots Rock

Terry Adams, visionary, driving force, and “untamed genius of the keyboards” for NRBQ since the band’s inception over four decades ago, is one of music’s true originals. Adams reignited the legendary Quartet with the addition of Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Conrad Choucroun on drums, and newest band member Casey McDonough on bass & vocals.

Often called “the world’s greatest bar band,” NRBQ are that rare group that’s eclectic, stylistically innovative, and creatively ambitious while also sounding thoroughly unpretentious and accessible. At its best, NRBQ’s music casually mixes up barrelhouse R&B, British Invasion pop, fourth-gear rockabilly, exploratory free jazz, and dozens of other flavors while giving it all a stomp-down rhythm that makes fans want to dance and expressing a sense of joy and easy good humor that comes straight from the heart

For Fans Of: Rockpile, Marshall Crenshaw, Al Anderson, Everly Brothers, Graham Parker

Bruce In The USA
Friday, February 7
GENRE: Rock/Tribute Band

This high-energy musical experience is a note-perfect and visually accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E. Street Band show. Matt Ryan, from the World Famous “Legends In Concert” cast, played the Springsteen character for eight years, in their “full scale”Las Vegasshow. The great success with “Legends” evolved his character into the Bruce In The USA show. His amazing portrayal of “The Boss” (not to mention his jaw-dropping resemblance) is as close as you can get to see the real thing in concert.

Royal Southern Brotherhood feat. Devon Allman, Cyril Neville & Mike Zito
Tuesday, March 11
GENRE: Blues

You heard me right. Devon Allman. Cyril Neville. Mike Zito. All on the same stage, on the same night.

Cyril Neville: poet, philosopher, percussion master and perhaps the South’ last great soul singer. DevonAllman: As the son of Gregg Allman, the 41-year-old has rock ‘n’ roll in his DNA, but he’s always walked his own path. Mike Zito: the blues ace whose ear for melody provides the counterpoint to his wingman’s rocking tendencies. Nominated in 2011 for the Blues Music Foundation’s ‘Best Blues Rock’ award, and winner of 2010′s Blues Music Award.

For Fans Of: Warren Haynes, Allman Brothers, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Honeytribe, Sonny Landreth, Walter Trout

GENRE: Folk/Pop/Rock

A music legend, with over 40 years of thrilling audiences here and abroad with hits like “No Regrets”, “Circle Game”, “Remember Song”, “Urge for Going” and “Merrimack County”. Tom Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty andGarthBrookshave cited Tom as major influences. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor.
