Denim Wedding

Genre: Americana , Psychedelic

“Jennifer Faust and Brian Kunkel are Denim Wedding, a rustic Americana {4 piece} that, remarkably, stands out in a crowded field of local rustic Americana bands. Denim Wedding’s new EP, Fancy Diving, is dreamlike and succulently earthy, a collection of five subdued but provocative tunes that range from upbeat Southern soul ballads (“Ankles Off”) to delicate bell-and-accordion songs (“Ebb and Flow”) to haunted dirges (“Traveling Circus”). While the music Faust and Kunkel sometimes make is spare, it is never stark, and it’s imbued with a warmth that’s impossible to fake. Fancy Diving’s utmost strengths, though, are its songs, which are adventurously written—and impeccably dressed, even if Denim Wedding’s name might make you suspect otherwise.” NED LANNAMANN – Portland Mercury

Dirtwire featuring: David Satori of Beats Antique and Evan Fraser from Stellamara

Genre: Americana , Experimental , Rock

  1. Tuesday, September 16 7:30 PM (All ages)

Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a gris-gris of sound with an amalgamation of traditional instrumentation, world-beat percussion, and electronic soundscapes. Comprised of multi-instrumentalist David Satori (Beats Antique) and Evan Fraser (Hamsa Lila; Stallamara), each performance brings the audience to a mysterious crossroads at an imaginative and seductive moment in time. The result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to downhome goodness.

The Dirtwire duo met at the California Institute of the Arts while studying World Music Composition. Both members of other successful music projects – Satori as part of the sensational electronic dynamo group Beats Antique and Fraser at the helm of world groove bands Hamsa Lila and Stellamara – their unique chemistry led to a continued musical friendship throughout the years. In 2012 Satori and Fraser released the debut dirtwire album, attracting everyone from electronic dance junkies to traditional world and roots music toe-tappers. With this first release, Dirtwire was introduced to the world and a new family was founded. Satori and Fraser get down as dirtwire at select theater and festival stages across the US.

Dirty Bourbon River Show w/ Nu Klezmer Army

Genre: Brass , Gypsy Jazz , Ragtime , Rock

“A circus-like barrage of sound serving as entrance music for a magical mystery tour of whiskey-soaked French Quarter back alleys,” – Rory Callais, Offbeat

“Genetically theatrical… appetite-whetting… a snow-globe carnival segueing seamlessly from kazoo- and clarinet-blown circus shenanigans to smooth-croon lounge, jazzy sax solos and staccato piano jams” – Noah Bonaparte-Pais, Gambit Weekly

“A rangy dreadlocked Jesus-esque cat in a black suit sported a massive Sousaphone as he laid down the bass lines… One fellow moved from arch-top guitar to accordion to trumpet as the set progressed… Brazen vocals, slippery sweet drumming and a horn attack like we’ve never seen… Please come back boys,” – Craig Havighurst, Nashville Music City Roots

“Jesus Christ. The best band in the world,” – Chris Bopst, Original Founding Bassist for GWAR

Since forming in early 2009, the Dirty Bourbon River Show has released 8 studio albums and played over 600 live shows, fast earning them a stellar reputation for their tight, diverse sound and high-energy performances. They can be found bringing their blend of “New Orleans Gypsy Brass Circus Rock” all over the USA, performing at festivals and respected venues year-round. The Dirty Bourbon River Show is comprised of Noah Adams (vocals, piano, guitar, accordion, trumpet), Charles “Big Charlie” Skinner (vocals, trombone, wind toys), Matt “Slyfox” Thomas (vocals, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone, flute) and Dane “Bootsy” Schindler (drums). Their 8th studio album, Volume Four, continues to push the boundaries of modern-day music, pairing reflective, syncopated lyrics with complex, harmony-rich songwriting. As a full-time touring quintet of highly versed multi-instrumentalists, the Dirty Bourbon River Show strives to change the way we think and feel about music.

Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors w/ Penny & Sparrow

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Tuesday, November 11 7:30 PM (All ages)

Some artists are able to articulate a vision at the very beginning of their career, while others hone their craft over time, growing into their vision as they mature. 

“I am definitely in the latter category,” explains Drew Holcomb, a Tennessee-born, duck hunting, bourbon drinking, 1st edition book collecting, golf playing Eagle Scout with a Masters degree in Divinity from Scotland’s University of St Andrews (he wrote his dissertation on “Springsteen and American Redemptive Imagination”) who has spent the better part of the past decade as a professional musician – recording, writing, and touring with his band Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors.

Since releasing their first album, 2005’s Washed In Blue, Drew & The Neighbors (Ellie Holcomb, Nathan Dugger, Rich Brinsfield) have established themselves as a formidable indie act, selling more than 75,000 records, playing more than 1,500 live dates, selling-out headline shows, and touring alongside such varied acts as The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos, NEEDTOBREATHE, Susan Tedeschi, North Mississippi Allstars, Marc Broussard, and more. Their songs have been used in countless television shows and commercials, most notably in TNT’s Emmy Award winning 2011 Christmas Day NBA Forever spot, which paired the song Live Forever with a mesmerizing montage of past and present NBA video footage.

The hard work has paid off with the band’s sixth album Good Light showcasing Drew’s signature brand of singer/songwriter Americana in its finest form yet. Recorded live at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Good Light arrives shortly following Drew’s 30th birthday and the birth of his first child, daughter Emmylou (named for – you guessed it – Emmylou Harris), with wife and band-mate Ellie Holcomb. I think about my daughter every time I sing the title track, how I want to sing it over her when she is old enough to start understanding the world of truth and consequence,” says the Memphis native who now calls Nashville home.

“This album perfectly tells the story for a new stage in my life,” explains Drew “On past albums I was searching for my voice, both literally and figuratively. I co-wrote a lot of songs, peppered the music with too many influences, and let too many other voices in my head.” 

With this album, Drew dedicated himself to the process of songwriting, stripping away extra layers, ridding himself of past boundaries and expectations. He wrote more than 40 songs for Good Light, mostly alone on his 1934 Gibson Archtop, eventually whittling the selections down to a final 12 tracks.

Drawing from personal experience to craft songs that speak to all of us, Drew explores the universal need to find meaning and joy in the midst of heartbreak and disappointment throughout Good Light. The last song on the album Tomorrow opens with the lyric, ‘Nothing ever turns out like you thought it would.’ It’s a theme that permeates the album. 

“I have been through really difficult things,” Drew continues. “When I was 17, I lost my younger brother, and have lived through the grief of that great absence. On the other hand, I have experienced the joy of being married to the girl I always wanted, and have been loved really well by her…Everyone has all these different ingredients; our geography, our family, our interests, the places we have been and the places we long to see, the loves we have found and the loves we have lost. Each of us has a story, and it’s the only one we can tell. With this album I’m telling my story, in the hope that it helps other people tell theirs.”
