ON TAP!

Lagunitas Aunt Sally~Sour Mash Ale

 

A Unique Dry-Hopped Sweet Tart Sour Mash Ale

We soured the wort on the Hot Side with Lactobacillus for a few days and then brewed up this smooth and hoppy sour. It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but what's the difference? It's sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sally's out there, You know who you are...

 

Great Lakes

Rally Drum Red

Ruby red with a frothy head. Sweet malt and nutty hops. Taste is mellow hop flowers, nutty, sweet malt and plum flesh. Easy drinker, tight soft carbonation. A pretty nice red from Great Lakes. It won't set your pants on fire but I found it to be refreshing and approachable. Would have a gain.


Crisp weiss beer with natural lemonade flavor

Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy

A unique take on Franz Kugler's original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy is our traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer. As we like to say, it's fresh-squeezed Wisconsin-brewed beer.

Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Fruit Wheat Beer category.

Brew Kettle Summer Rays

Belgian-Style Wit Bier  

Pours a yellow with slight gold. Awesome white head that eventually fades.

The smell is lots of spices but in the perfect balance.

The taste is on par with the smell but a lot more lemon zest comes through. A little bit of bitterness making an appearance as well.

I always enjoy a good Wit beer and I must say this may have been the best one I have ever had.

 

Portside Brewery

Marblehead Amber Ale

Marblehead lighthouse has been the longerst-operating lighthouse on the Great Lakes since it was built in 1821.  nestled into a natural limestone deposit on Lake Erie, it has long served as a beacon in the dark, to warn ships from running aground in the shallow body of water.  Coincidentally, this drinkable amber ale can be your guide through the hectic bustle of mdoern life.  It features low-level toasted mal and slightly sweet, full body, with a fruity hop finish.

 

21st Amendment Brew Free

or

Die IPA


BREW FREE! OR DIE IPA is brewed with some serious west coast attitude. This aromatic golden IPA starts with three different hops to the nose, quickly balanced by a solid malt backbone supporting the firm bitterness. Our top selling beer at the pub, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more

Platform Beer Co.

Politically Correct

Nice aroma of pine and tropical fruit, with caramel undertones. Pours a clear amber, with a nice white head. Starts with a hint of caramel, fading into a nice blend of tropical fruit notes and bitterness. Nice bitter finish, medium bodied. A good solid APA, with some nice bitterness notesy

 

Stella Artois Cidre

I think as far as hard ciders go this one is not too sweet compared to others like angry orchard... Wanted to add that Its not really a stella product from what I was told when in Belgium but actually a product made by a separate LLC company near me in NY and distributed by A-busch. It wasnt even available in Belgium.

 

Fat Heads Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale

 

"MOST REFRESHING BEER IN AMERICA"

BREWING NEWS GLOBAL WARMING OPEN

Brewed with fresh harvested spring honey stolen from some very angry bees (we have the welts to prove it) and infused with fresh blueberries. Creating a light, refreshing ale with a nice blueberry aroma, crackery malt flavors, a hint of sweetness and a refreshing blueberry finish. Get yo buzz on!

Goodwood Louisville Lager

Goodwood Louisville Lager is the first and only beer brewed with 100% Kentucky-grown grains. And, in a tip of the cap to our Slugger-making neighbors downtown, white ash – common in baseball bats – is used to enhance brewing. This results in a light-bodied, perfectly balanced lager with a sweet finish delivered by those Kentucky grains.

Breckenridge Brewery

Vanilla Porter


Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grows the perfect ingredient for an extraordinary Porter brewed in Colorado. Breckenridge Brewery's Vanilla Porter. An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure.


Flying Dog Brewery

Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA


The color is a pretty orange-amber with a thick, creamy milk white head and lacing. The smell is fruity and hoppy but with a noticeable sweetness. This one starts with some sweetness: toffee, vanilla, and some sweet fruitiness, which quickly gives way to cloves, citrus, and a hoppy pine bitterness. This ale is well carbonated and it masks its 8.30 ABV quite well. Overall, it's an excellent example of a Belgian-style IPA; enough sweetness to make it interesting and refreshing.

Samuel Adams

Cold Snap

White Ale       

Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.

 

Young's Double Chocolate Stout

The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk

chocolate, roasted

grain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla

 

Guinness

A classic. Mainly

roasted malt, with a

touch of cream and

milk to it

 

**********************

The paradox of our

time in history is that

we have taller

buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less.

We buy more, but

enjoy less.

We have bigger

houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less

sense, more

knowledge, but

less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more

medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,

spend too recklessly, laugh too little,drive

too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much,

and pray too seldom.

We

have multiplied our possessions, but

reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate

too often. We've

learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years

to life not life to years.

We've been all the

way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space.

We've done larger

things, but not better things. We've cleaned

up the air, but polluted

the soul. We've conquered the atom,

but not our prejudice.

We write more, but

learn less. We plan

more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait.

We build more

computers to hold

more information, to produce more copies

than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These

are the days of two incomes but more

divorce, fancier

houses, but broken homes.

These are days of

quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway orality, one night

stands, overweight bodies, and pills that

do everything from

cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there

is much in the

showroom window and nothing in the

stockroom. A time

when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you

can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit 'delete'.

Remember, spend

some time with your

loved ones, because

they are not going to

be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone, who looks up to you in awe, because that little

person soon will grow

up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one

next to you, because

that is the only

treasure you can give

with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say,

"I love you" to your

partner and your loved ones, but most of all

mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from

deep inside of you.Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday

that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the

precious thoughts in

your mind.

Awesome Americana! Expect stellar guitar work, soulful vocals and thought-provoking PARTY songs from Ashland City, TN
Mark Stuart

Mark Stuart will spend 2016 doing what he has always done. He will tour  full-time as a musical artist, bringing his years of experience to the  stage. Onstage, his focus is on the songs he has penned and recorded,  delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing. 
After many years on the Americana/Folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a  very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar  "chops", and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk  music roots. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo or in a  notable duo with his wife ("Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart"). There were stints  along the way as a sideman, though (Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve  Earle, Joan Baez). If placed on the bill with a contemporary artist he is  usually asked to play guitar on their portion of the show. Just ask Jason  Ringenberg, Ray Wylie Hubbard, or Jimmy LaFave.  One can find Mark Stuart on any given night in a small theater,  coffeehouse, house concert, festival stage, club, church auditorium, etc.  giving it his all. Aside from that, he could be instructing at a guitar  clinic, songwriting workshop, or playing on someone's recording session. As  co-owner of Gearle Records he has produced or co-produced many albums.  Stuart's career has repeatedly taken him to all of the USA, Canada, Europe,  and the United Kingdom, and, has spanned several decades.

Happy Hour w/

Indie / Alternative / singer/songwriter Alden, NY

Sara Elizabeth

Sara Elizabeth is a 24 year old indie singer/songwriter, musician, storyteller, and multi-instrumentalist based in Western New York. Sara picked up her first guitar on her ninth birthday, at which point she began 8 years of classical and jazz training before turning to songwriting full time. She has since added ukulele, piano, banjo, and mandolin to her repertoire to help support her alto vocals, and is also a 2012 graduate of the University at Buffalo's Department of Music. Often backing Sara Elizabeth is the talented bassist and fellow UB alumni Tom Varco, as well as a variety of talented percussionists.

Sara Elizabeth's musical influences range from The Beatles, to Ingrid Michaelson and The Avett Brothers, to P!NK. According to Sara, she takes “the heart of folk music, the soul of the blues, the brain of classical, and the energy of modern indie rock and uses them to tell stories no one has ever heard before.” This is evident in her releases “Darling, I'm Not Yours [EP]” (2011), “On the Rise” (2012), “A Very Sara Elizabeth Christmas: the acoustic EP (2013),” and “Be Well” (2014), as well as in her intriguing live performances with her rhythm section.

In addition to many bars and other venues around WNY and the surrounding region, notable performances include The Town Ballroom (opener for Bedouin Soundclash), Babeville's Ninth Ward, Music is Art Festival, Artpark, Sportsmen's Tavern, Nietzsche's, Waiting Room, and Water Street Music Hall (opener for Ha Ha Tonka).

Best of WNY's Bob Silvestri has noted, “The key to being above everyone else in the singer songwriter mélange is obviously to write good songs, and this talented girl has a few.” He later calls her a “mature artist…aware of herself, her craft, and her direction in life.” Or as Jeff Miers (Buffalo News) has said, “Bringing an indie-rock mentality to the modern folk-based troubadour school is Sara's deal, and it's working.”

Irish Influenced party rockabilly punk fun from Austin TX

Black Irish Texas

Emerging from the local cut-throat and highly competitive music scene of Austin, comes Black Irish Texas. And out of the proclaimed live music capital of the world they have exploded on the scene like a whiskey drenched force to be reckoned with. They have shared the stage with such International acts as Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Social Distortion, and the Street Dogs just to name a few, as well as local Austin legends such as the Dicks and the Flametrick Subs.

The band started in 2004 after a few lineup changes and many tribulations, they have managed to keep their anything-but-common spaghetti western/Americana/punk infused Irish American act together just long enough to finally release their debut album “To Hell with the King.”

With backing from Jameson Irish whiskey and support from legions of local and regional fans they released their first full length album and have been running all over the country throwing their no holds barred Irish American party gaining devout followers everywhere they play.

 Black Irish boast members of Austin favorite's such as Mr. Lewis and the Funeral Five, Flatcar Rattlers, Los Hispanos,UK, The Bulemics, and Hipsterectomy just to name a few. With members from each of those bands bringing to the table their own particular styles and influences, your current line-up of James Fitzsimmons on guitar and vocal duties, Mark Maughmer II on fiddle, Scooby on drums, Shannon McMillan on upright bass and Bil David Zarate on banjo, you are basically looking at a powder keg lit by a few shots of Jameson. And what a site it is.

Do not, I repeat, do NOT try and pigeonhole these guys as an Irish pub drinking band, regurgitating overheard covers of “danny boy” and “whiskey in the jar” . In high demand at every venue from Stubb's and Emo's Austin to the Abbey pub in Chicago, Black Irish Texas is a coming to a venue near you. See what they're doing at their website.  www.blackirishtexas.com , and be on the look out for new releases roomered to release March of 2016..

Uncrowned King of Rock and Roll Pittsfield Pennsyltucky

Norman Nardini

As bass player for the 1970's Pittsburgh rock n' roll band, Diamond Reo, Norman Nardini got his career started. After a very brief stay at Berklee School Of Music and more than a few special moments….while still in high school he rented his Hammond B-3 organ and roadied for Billy Preston and Sly and the Family Stone when they came to town…..was hired to play guitar and keys in fake versions of The Sonics and The Cherry People…………backed up Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Detroit Emeralds, and The Manhattans in pickup bands…..played guitar behind Big Mama Thorton and George Harmonica Smith at The Jazz Workshop in Boston Mass. At Fox studio he had the opportunity to play on recordings by Jimmy Beaumont and the Skyliners, Lou Christy, Terry Bradshaw……Nardini played bass on “The Pennsylvania Polka” Steeler fight song. After doing an arrangement of “Dancing In The Street” that got picked up by RCA he did an arrangement of Marvin Gaye's “Ain't That Peculiar” that brought an album deal with Big Tree Records that got Diamond Reo started. With a single on the charts The Diamonds appeared on Dick Clark's American Bandstand and did shows with Aerosmith, Rush, Ted Nugent, Kansas, Canned Heat, Blue Oyster Cult……they opened up for Kiss at Cobo Hall in Detroit the night they recorded Kiss Alive. Dirty Diamonds, they're second release was on the Buddah label and was produced by Adrian Barber who had done Aerosmith's first LP……although it didn't do so well at the time, Dirty Diamonds is currently being re-released on Rock Candy Records and is considered to be a classic piece of work……Nardini produced Ruff Cuts The Diamonds third and final LP. Norman Nardini and the Tigers started tearin' up rock n' roll shows in 1979 opening shows for bands like The Romantics, Joan Jett, and Beaver Brown. In the fall of 1980 The Tigers played Asbury Park's Fast Lane and opened the show for The Rest, one of Jon Bon Jovi's early bands, he and Jon remain friends to this day. Jon had Nardini open his 2011 performance at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center. Recorded at Cleveland's legendary Agora Nightclub, Eat n' Alive, which received a 4 star review from Rolling Stone Magazine was released in '81 and kept The Tigers on the road constantly. CBS released Norman Nardini and the Tigers in '83, ole buddy Jon Bon sang BG vocals. With the Tigers broken up, Nardini did one more release with CBS, Love Dog, which featured Rick Derringer, Dr John, and Paul Shaffer and hit in '86 and was followed by a tour with The Radiators. A tour of Germany as opening act for The Blues Brothers came about because “Smoke Two Joints”, the single off the Circumstantial LP, This Ole Train was hitting the airways just after the Berlin wall came down and folks were exercising their freedom to rock and smoke. Two more LP's on Circumstantial followed, 1993's Breakdown In Paradise and 95's It's Alive.

A highly talented, underground group from Wheeling West Virginia, The Brett Cain Band, worked with Nardini to create some legendary music in the late 90's that resulted in their LP, Rise. As leader of The Pittsburgh Blues Allstars, Nardini has led their performance at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival for the last 13 years, shows that have featured the best of the ‘burg Shari Richards, Billy Price, Gary Beloma, Kenny Blake Mark Stutso, and Jill West. The late great Glenn Pavone played his last show with The Allstars at the Blues Fest.

The Redemption LP, which featured new arrangements of his older tunes kept Nardini and his band busy playing week in and week out just like they always had done. Opening slots in front of acts like Johnny Winter, Peter Wolf, Pete Best, Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers, Tommy Castro, and Bernard Allison, John Eddy, and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes helped to keep the Pittsburgh rocker at the top of his game.

The Nardini wrote and produced Rock My Soul LP in 2007 by singer-drummer Mark Stutso came as the result of Nardini hearing this West Virginian sing with Jimmy Thackery's Drivers. In 2010 Stutso sang lead on the Nardini produced JJ Burner LP, Roll On that also featured monster player Warren King on lead guitar.

Bone A Fide was 2011's Norman Nardini release that reached a new hi level for this relentless musical force. Most artist's that have been around as long as Nardini have long since done their best work, not so in the case of Pittsburgh's uncrowned king of rock n' roll.

In 2012 The Nighthawks, Washington DC's best known and longest running blues band included 3 of Nardini's songs on their Damn Good Time Release.

As 2013 is coming to an end, Norman Nardini says that he's just getting started. With a seemingly endless string of exciting new songs and a guitar style that gets stronger as the years roll by Nardini says, “bring out the rest n' let me put 'em to the test n' we'll see who's good rockin' n' who's just talking”.

internationally known ~ Soulful Blues Singer out of Sarasota, Fla byway of OHIO

The

Lauren Mitchell Band

Soul Singer Lauren Mitchell Follows her Musical Heart

"My first solo singing performance happened in church!" recalls Lauren Mitchell, a woman who, in only a few short years, has crafted a singular, unmistakable voice in the world of blues. "I'd been a member of the chorus for productions, but performing in my grandparent's church was the first time I stood on my own and opened my mouth to sing for an audience." Lauren remembers being frightened and a little nervous but she also remembers that, as she looked out over the faces in the congregation, "it wasn't too scary-and all those people knew me and loved me and wanted me to succeed." And succeed she has. The Lauren Mitchell Band is a tour de force, performing around 250 dates per year, nationally and internationally. Lauren and her band perform in concert halls, venues, historic honky tonks, and festivals. She's put together a stellar group and is proud of the fact that she spends a lot of time "in a van, with a bunch of guys, being schooled in the blues!" Lauren's love of music was passed to her from her grandparents and parents. "My grandfather was a guitarist and my grandmother was a singer. They both also played organ. They met when my grandmother auditioned for the bluegrass/country band my grandfather led. My mom also sang in the church choir and there was always music in the home." Lauren remembers her dad playing guitar. "My favorite tune he played was Mr. Bojangles. I grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight and Fatz Waller and Jelly Roll Morton. My education in soul and blues came from listening to music my parents listened to." Lauren cites Etta James as profoundly influencing her sound. "People recognize the Etta influence," says Lauren. "Our music is definitely more soul that straight blues." Lauren's gift was recognized by her parents and professional voice lessons became a part of her early life. "I sang opera and theater music through college. I stumbled on Janis Joplin and she deeply impacted my singing. I learned Bobby McGee, of course!" A chance encounter with a Karaoke contest set Lauren's musical path in stone. "My friends insisted I sing Bobby McGee and I won the contest and a hundred bucks! I thought, ‘Man, maybe I should just keep singing this stuff!'" Lauren started digging in to the blues and despite a few meandering career choices (bartending, makeup artist, managing a restaurant) Lauren finally made a heart decision to make music her livelihood."I met and started working with some amazing musicians in 2005 and the project grew from there. I officially launched The Lauren Mitchell Band in 2011, and haven't looked back since!" says Lauren. The Lauren Mitchell Band has released two albums, the latest being "Live! From The Bradfordville Blues Club" in May of 2014. The record follows up the band's debut, Please Come Home. "Our fans liked the first record but said it didn't quite represent the feel and energy of our live performances," says Lauren. "Bradfordville Blues Club is known for fabulous sound and it's a historic juke joint. The place is alive with the musical spirits of Muddy Waters, Pinetop Perkins, John Lee Hooker and James Cotton, to name just a few. When you play music that comes from a place in history that is so rich and so significant to our culture, recording music where legendary figures also played is just magical." Lauren and the band are currently working on material for a third album, whih she hopes will be finished be the end of 2016. Lauren Mitchell has come a long way from that little girl singing in front of her church congregation. She's now a touring, professional blues singer, fronting a band and wowing audiences along the way. Audiences that know her, love her, and are sure she's succeeding in every musical way.

Bright City

Delightful rhythms, exquisite vocals, and perfectly tight harmonies... just a few things you will hear at a Bright City show. This top 40's, pop/rock/country acoustic act consists of seasoned Cleveland musicians who want to make a different type of splash in the area. Sometimes you want to party the night away, but other times you want to just sit back, relax, and enjoy some amazing music. 

PLUS

Dan McCoy

may have been under the radar since picking up the Cleveland Scene Magazine Music Award for best Americana/Country band in 2010 but that doesn't mean he hasn't been busy. In that time he has been playing on a regular basis around his hometown of Willoughby, OH & elsewhere as well as writing songs for his a number of solo albums he's hoping to release in the next year or so. In the meantime a single is being mixed for release some time in 2016.

McCoy has been bringing his brand of Heartland-Alt.Country-Rock to the masses since 1988 (he played his first gig a month before his 15th birthday). There have been many comparisons of McCoy's music to Springsteen, Petty, Seger, Mellencamp as well as more contemporary artists such as Lucero, Drive-By Truckers & Will Hoge. "McCoy has a boyish, fun rock voice that sounds like Jackson Browne with more guts and growl" says Jennifer Layton from Indie-Music.com His enthusiastic onstage persona is infectious & by the end of a set one feels as though he's an old friend you haven't seen in a while.

country/americana outfit out of El Paso, TX

Val and the Southern Line

From the first strum of a powerful anthem of declaration to the softest whispers of tragic lullabies, Val and her band the Southern Line can't help but to make you laugh, dance and sing your way through heartbreak. Like a train running through a living room, Val and her band power through songs of loss, love and raising your glass to the hope of tomorrow.  She is Country Music's Adele with strong influences from Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell. With her painful yet powerful voice and guitar chops to boot she's got a story to tell. Out from the West Texas town of El Paso, call her a Country Mexican Outlaw, Val has brought her brand of Country to the hills of Hollywood and beyond.
Songs like "Drink up" have all the fun and freedom of a rowdy Friday night. The driving beat of the drums and the rasp of Val's voice usher in what could only be called a country stadium anthem.  Another V&TSL track "Sneaking Away with the Lord" gives a somber and chilling experience of the tale of a misunderstood Texas underdog.  From the downbeat you are immediately enveloped by the delicate melody and transported to a place outside of time. 
Val and the Southern Line found it's origins in the dusty desert border town of El Paso, a place known for it's mountains and interesting US/Mexico border town dynamic.  In that cultural cornucopia is where Val draws many of her stories as well as the influence of mariachi storytelling and rock en español.  The result is easily heard in every track, with unique instrumentation and a story that takes the listener through the adventures, trials and complexity of border town life. If you like your chips with salsa you're going to love Val and the Southern Line's Country with a little Mexican spice.
If there's one thing Val can do it's put on a show. She has been gigging and gigging and then some and has honed in her live performance craft. She can immediately pull in any listener with her striking rhaspy voice but does not stop there. Every song has a strong message and her performance let's you not only know it but feel it. She is a triple edged sword with her guitar chops, powerful voice and deep yet hopeful songwriting that is a force to be reckoned with.

Reggae Funk Dance Party Experience! from Boston, MA

Spiritual Rez

can shake a stage like a psychedelic dance earthquake.

With their latest release, APOCALYPSE WHENEVER, Boston's beloved reggae-rock funkateers Spiritual Rez deliver their most triumphant musical offering yet. Produced by lead singer Toft Willingham, co-produced by bassist Jesse Shaternick, and mastered by legendary engineer Howie Weinberg (Ramones, Beastie Boys, Prince, Red Hot Chili Peppers), the 14-track collection of infectious anthems is chock-full of rollicking guitar riffs, ocean-bathed melodies, swagger-centric basslines, crisp soaring horns, and ska-infused jam sections that have come to define Rez's progressive signature sound. While their groove is primarily rooted in rock, reggae, and funk traditions, the septet draws stylistic influence from nearly every musical movement of the 20th century. Over the past 9 years, Rez has tirelessly toured the country ten times over, cemented their status as a consistent festival favorite, and honed their exhilarating live show into an incomparable, unabashed musical extravaganza. They have shared the stage with a startlingly broad range of artistic visionaries, including Toots and the Maytals, Rubblebucket, Gogol Bordello, the Dirty Heads, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Jimmy Buffett and Bernie Worrell. Evoking their personal power animals, they fearlessly forge into a bold new chapter of their epic musical journey and prepare to hit the road for a nationwide tour once more….

“A high energy performance that crowds inevitably find contagious…. A little Bob Marley, a little Toots and a lot of their own originality thrown in makes Spiritual Rez a one of a kind band to jam to.” – NEW YORK METRO 

“A soul-funk fusion that, besides being incredibly infectious, is just goddamn delightful.” – BOSTON DIG

“Boston's Spiritual Rez have established themselves as not only one of the best reggae acts in town, but one of the overall best live shows, as well.” – BDC WIRE

“… a raw energy that can't be matched or stopped as their music flows on wave upon wave.” – UPSTATE LIVE

Blues Rock from Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota

INDIGENOUS

 

Born and raised on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Indigenous front man Mato Nanji (Ma-TOE NON-gee) dedicates his latest release Time Is Coming (on Blues Bureau International) to the indigenous youth and all young people on the indigenous reservations.
Mato Nanji's father, the late Greg Zephier, Sr., was a well-known and highly respected spiritual advisor and spokesperson for the International Indian Treaty Council.  In addition to this leadership role, he was an accomplished musician and a member of the musical group, The Vanishing Americans.  Formed by Greg and his brothers in the ‘60's, The Vanishing Americans toured nationally and shared bills with such legends as Bonnie Raitt.  Besides being heavily influenced by the music his father and uncles were making, Mato was exposed to Greg's vast collection of blues records by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King.  Consequently, Mato embraced and began utilizing his own musical talent at a young age.  With the experience, love and wisdom of their father to guide them, Mato, his brother, sister and cousin formed the band Indigenous while in their late teens.

After much time invested in practicing and building a following, they began touring extensively across the country.  In 1998, they released their award winning debut album  Things We Do .  The title track's video, directed by Chris Eyre ( Smoke Signals ), won the American Indian Film Festival Award and was shown at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.  Indigenous' music caught the attention of blues icon B.B. King and the young band was invited to play on his annual B.B. King's Blues Tour in 1999.  Sadly, Mr. Zephier would pass away before seeing his children receive this great honor.
With momentum gaining, Indigenous' 2000 sophomore release,  Circle,  was produced and arranged by Stevie Ray Vaughan's longtime friend and collaborator, the late Doyle Bramhall, Sr.  Three more cds; Fistful of Dirt (2002),  Indigenous  (2003) and  Long Way Home ( 2005) would follow before the 2006 decision by the siblings to ‘disband' and pursue their own musical paths but Mato carried on with the Indigenous band name.  “Playing with my family for 10 years was a lot of fun, but it was time to grow and keep moving forward.” 

Mato continued touring and in 2006 released  Chasing The Sun .  Two of the cd's songs, “Come On Home” and “Leaving”, were featured on the hit Discovery Channel show  The Deadliest Catch.  “Come on Home” was also featured on FX's  Sons of Anarchy .
On 2008's  Broken Land s, an intensely personal record, Mato and Leah, his lyricist and wife, pay tribute to his Native heritage.  The album decries the poverty, isolation and reality of life on the reservation with “Place I Know . ” The album gains its title from the line , “all is lost in these broken lands.”
Of  The Acoustic Sessions (released in 2010), Mato commented, “It's a collection of some of my favorite songs that celebrate 10 years of releasing albums. Every song that I have ever written began with the acoustic guitar, so it only felt natural to create an acoustic album.”  

Indigenous featuring Mato Nanji  (2012) would mark Nanji's debut on the  Blues Bureau International  label and the beginning of his collaboration with noted producer, Mike Varney.  Joining Mato on the disc's opening track “Free Yourself, Free Your Mind” is the soulful Jonny Lang.  On it, the two guitar-masters trade vocals and guitar solos.  It's truly a blues lover's ‘match made in heaven'.

In addition to his Indigenous ‘day job', Mato Nanji has been a member of the critically acclaimed Experience Hendrix Tour since 2002.  Playing alongside original Jimi Hendrix band members Billy Cox and the late Mitch Mitchell, the tour roster includes some of today's blues greats including Buddy Guy, Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon (Double Trouble), Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, and Robert Randolph. 

Once the 2012 Experience Hendrix Tour concluded, Mato and fellow EHT tour mates  David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) would collaborate and release the hard-driving, psychedelic blues-infused  3 Skulls and the Truth (Blues Bureau International) disc .  The album's no-holds barred setting is the ideal foundation for the three veteran axemen to simply ‘let it fly'. 
February 2013 would bring the Mato Nanji-inspired release from trance-blues artist Otis Taylor, My World Is Gone  ( Telarc ).  Mato and Otis explore the plight of the American Indian people in a lightning bolt of musical creativity and social commentary.  "Mato inspired the entire direction of this album," says Taylor.  "We were talking about history backstage at a Jimi Hendrix tribute concert he had just played, and, in reference to his people, the Native American Nakota Nation, he said 'My world is gone.'  The simplicity and honesty of those four words was so heavy, I know what I had to write about."

"My dad was my favorite musician so he really influenced me a lot with everything.  I just felt it was time to pay tribute to him and his band," says Nanji. That tribute, Vanishing Americans , was released on May 21, 2013 and promptly found its place on iTunes Top 10 Blues Chart.  Blues Rock Review (6/5/13) said: “each song is brought together with heavy and powerful guitar riffs akin to those of Carlos Santana and Jimi Hendrix, while bellowing, raspy vocals turn a talented guitarist's vision into a relatable song for many, just as any praiseworthy blues album should.”
“Mato continues to refine his guitar and vocal vocabularies with each new release and is also expanding his songwriting skills with his wife Leah,” said producer Mike Varney of Time Is Coming (May 2014). From the infectious opening track of “Grey Skies”; the Soundgarden/Rage Against the Machine influenced “Won't Be Around No More”; and the gut-wrenching blues of “Don't Know What To Do”, and at all points in between, Mato Nanji “tears at his guitar strings, bending and shaking them to within an inch of their life, it is clear that he is no mere copyist. He is a genuine virtuoso…” (Rhys Williams, bluesblastmagazine.com 5/14).
Ultimately, Mato dedicates Time Is Coming, to the Indigenous youth and all young people on the Indigenous reservations. Of the song says Nanji; “still to this day, the struggle continues to just live in peace.  Growing up here on the reservation I've seen a lot of broken families…broken homes.  I feel our families' “Tiospaye” are the core of what makes us who we are.  Now family and its meaning is not as strong as it used to be for our people…almost non-existent.  So I send my heart and soul out to the indigenous children having a tough time in their lives and in their homes.  This record is inspired by them and made in their honor.  I hope for the best for all.  Tomorrow is another day.”
The Plateros, a three piece award winning family band from the Navajo Nation in Tohajiilee, New Mexico consider Mato Nanji and Indigenous one of their greatest musical influences.
Levi and The Plateros played their first show, a festival in Bird Springs, AZ in December 2004, and by April 2005, they would find themselves onstage performing at the largest PowWow in the world, The Gathering of Nations.  Lead guitarist Levi, with his natural born talent, slid across the stage with power chords and screaming blues that amazed the packed crowd.  He was just 13 years old.
In the years to follow, Levi, along with his cousins Douglas Platero on drums and Bronson Begay on bass would receive numerous nominations for native music and video awards, and their cd Hang On would take home a win for Best Blues Album at the 2009 New Mexico Music Awards.
In 2012, they joined Indigenous for The Kinship Tour, with The Plateros opening the double bill.  They would join Mato for blistering encores that would bring the proverbial house down.
Touring in support of Time Is Coming in the summer of 2014, Mato Nanji would once again call on Levi, Douglas and Bronson to hit the road with him.  This time, though, would be different.  They would be onstage as Indigenous' rhythm section;  Mato and Levi trading leads and solos while Bronson and Douglas provided the strong, stable rhythmic foundation that allowed the two guitarists to 'tear it up'.
As the band made its way across the east coast, the after show buzz was audible.  The incendiary chemistry of Mato Nanji, Levi Platero, Bronson Begay and Douglas Platero innate. 

They are Indigenous.

Gina Sicilia

“ Not since Susan Tedeschi has a young female Blues singer made such an impression...remarkable voice”— Blues Revue

“ Earthy, voluptuous voice”— Boston Globe “ Destined to take her seat among the all-time greats... ”

— Billtown Blues Association

“ Sicilia delivers a vocal and lyrical performance that rates alongside the titans of early-1960s soul ”— About.com

Gina Sicilia has been wowing audiences across the globe throughout her decade-long career, with no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Considered a true rising star in the blues world, her debut album, Allow Me to Confess, brought her worldwide acclaim and a Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist. This accomplished singer, songwriter and performer continues to demonstrate a powerful work ethic and passion for her craft.

On her sixth studio release, Sunset Avenue(EP), Gina manages to raise the bar even further. Recorded in her native Philadelphia by Grammy-winning producer Glenn Barratt, the album showcases her inimitable, distinct vocals as she throws down a musical gauntlet of power, grit and energy. Her emotional and often deeply personal songs gracefully cross genres, with echoes of soul, roots, and even Americana woven throughout the tapestry of sound she's created on the new collection.

Despite the accolades and her estimable talent, Sicilia considers her music a restless work in progress. “I see myself as always evolving, reaching for a new place where I want my music to be and a way I want it to sound,” she says. “I don't know if I'll find that place, but I'll never stop searching.”

“Chambers' brand of blues is a no-frills blend of Chicago, Texas, and Delta styles, played with an understated sense of ferocity. Sean came to wail, and he does so with a transparent sense of devotion and scholarship to the music he plays so well.” Mark Uricheck - LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE

SEAN CHAMBERS


"Guitarist Chambers achieves the distinctly American blues/soul/country/rock sound that the Stones used to aspire to long ago." - Jerry Shriver, USA TODAY
Florida born Sean Chambers toured with the legendary Hubert Sumlin as his guitarist and band leader from 1998-2003. Britain's own Guitarist magazine named Chambers as “One of the top 50 blues guitarists of the last century.” After his tenure with Sumlin, he performed on his own, and in 2003 was asked to headline the prestigious Maryport Blues Festival.
In 2004, shortly after his second CD release, Sean was forced to relocate when his home in Florida was struck by two of the major hurricanes that hit the state, and flooded out his home. In 2009, Chambers went back into the studio to record what would be his most critically-acclaimed album to date, Ten Til Midnight.
When Ten Til Midnight was released in October, 2009, it garnered rave reviews and also appeared on the Living Blues chart for the first three months after its release. It received steady airplay in 45 states around the U.S, as well as many markets overseas. The title cut was featured on “The House of Blues Radio Hour” as a “Blues Breaker;” and the album also generated significant airplay on Sirius/XM Radio's blues channel as a “Pick to Click.”
The Sean Chambers Band released Live from the Long Island Blues Warehouse in 2011, which featured 10 tracks of mostly originals, along with Sean's distinctively searing takes on “Full Moon on Main Street,” a highlight song from an early album by The Kinsey Report; as well as a blistering version of Elmore James' “Dust My Broom,” which recalls Johnny Winter in its approach.
Live from the Long Island Blues Warehouse appeared on BB King's Bluesville XM/Sirius Blues Charts as a “Pick to Click” for 6 weeks in a row, as well as 15 weeks on the RMR Weekly Blues Roots Chart and 11 weeks on the House of Blues Radio Chart. The album was voted “Best Live Blues Album of 2011” by Canada's Blues Underground Network and ranked as one of the Top 3 Live CD's in Germany by the magazine Wasser Prawda. In addition it was nominated for a Jimi Award for “Best Live Blues Album of 2011.” Guitar Player Magazine did a full page feature story on Sean in February, 2012, and the same month Vintage Guitar Magazine ran a two page feature story.
On October 15, 2013, Sean Chambers released his latest album, The Rock House Sessions, on Blue Heat Records. The album received great reviews and was also nominated for a Blues Blast Music Award in 2014 for “Best Rock Blues Album of the year. The Rock House Sessions features a number of firsts: it's the first album he's recorded as Sean Chambers rather than the Sean Chambers Band; producing for the first time is legendary keyboard player Reese Wynans (best-known for his long tenure as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan's band); and it's his first recording exclusively using studio musicians, as Sean and Reese drew from the deep talent-laden pool of Nashville musicians and songwriters. The album was recorded at the studio of another acclaimed keyboardist – Kevin McKendree (Delbert McClinton Band) – named The Rock House, hence The Rock House Sessions.
The core band on the album aside from Sean on lead vocals and lead guitar includes Reese Wynans on keyboards, Tommy MacDonald on bass and Tom Hambridge on drums. Special guests include Rob McNelley on guitar, TJ Klay on harmonica, Chaz Trippy on percussion, Etta Britt on backing vocals, Bob Britt on guitar, Steve Herman on trumpet, and Jim Hoke on sax.
Besides three new original Sean Chambers compositions, The Rock House Sessions includes “Choo Choo Mama,” written by Alvin Lee; “Holding On” written by Gary Moore; and “Come to Poppa,” written by Willie Mitchell and Earl Randle but made famous by Bob Seger. Other tracks include new songs by Gary Nicholson, Tom Hambridge, Kenny Greenberg and Rick Vito.

Along with that, Work In Progress was nominated for four WYCE Jammie Awards in 2014, including Best Album by a New Artist, Best Blues/Soul Album, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year for “The Storm is Coming.” With a new album currently in the works, this band is no longer a “work in progress,” but a growing force in the music scene.

“It's been a long time comin',” said Jim Shaneberger. “I've always wanted to put something out there that's truly mine.”

A Rock and Roll Band that loves Classic Country , Gospel and Blues

Jennifer Westwood and The Handsome Devils

Think Loretta Lynn and Lucinda Williams meet the Drive By Truckers and Tom Petty!

Jennifer Westwood cut her teeth on Detroit Gospel before hitting the gritty Detroit bars that set her career in motion. She has been a Detroit Music Award winner and nominee in several categories, and has contributed music to multiple Emmy Award winning commercials and documentaries, as well as film.
She first found confidence to consider music as a career by the encouragement of a church acquaintance, a professor of music who had previously served as ensemble choir director for the late Bishop C.L. Franklin, father of Aretha. Performing in church lead to her first work in the outside world, singing backup locally for Motown artist Carl Carlton (Bad Mama Jama). Studio work for various local artists followed, first in R & B and soul genres, followed by roots and blues. Those experiences gave her insight on the direction she wanted to embark on for her own music before leaping out on her own. It also opened doors for commercial work due to her vocal flexibility and enthusiasm. The same enthusiasm has driven each performance --- whether it has been 7 ppl, on up to 70,000. Sharing the bill with rock icon Patti Smith at the world's largest Masonic Temple have marked a highlight of her performance career.
Jennifer has fully embraced the character and spirit of Detroit; and considers her greatest accomplishment to be creating a career in music during some of the most troubling economic times for her hometown. 

There are no musical limitations with Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils. The skill set and accomplishments that each member has earned helps them create a format where no style is out of bounds. Somehow, it all sounds familiar, but unique all the same. Truly a melting pot of musical ability and knowledge, the band makes a statement with each note and the sky is the limit.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Acoustic Blue Folk From LA

Daniel Kushnir

The blues has found its way into everything that Daniel Kushnir has ever composed. He strips himself down completely to bear his fullest blues essence on his most recent LP, Nothing Left to Give—14 tracks of solo guitar, mouth harp, and vocal stylings squarely situated between Jim Croce and John Hammond, Jr. More importantly, if you listen closely enough, you can hear his own musical past shine through. As the man behind the artist Pause, Kushnir channeled his blues sensibilities into the realm of deep funk and hip-hop. There he garnered moderate amounts of commercial success, placing original music in  major network productions and video game soundtracks. Everything he composed and produced entirely by himself in a hand-built studio shed behind his home in the San Fernando valley. Like it has many troubadours his ilk, wanderlust took hold of Kushnir who spent much of 2015 on the road playing solo for months at a time. He booked mostly cafes and dives across the Southern U.S. with only an acoustic guitar and harmonica at his disposal--the kinds of places where the pulse of the original blues legends still resonates. He returned back home to Los Angeles with the artistic mindset that only an unknown bluesman playing self-composed blues music in backwater blues enclaves could cultivate. Nothing Left to Give documents these unique times for this unique artist, and is experienced best live and in person, the way Kushnir perfected the songs he recorded for album. See for yourself by checking out the live videos here , or better yet, coming down to a show near you.

Space Funk / Groove Grass / Ameritronica from Boulder, CO

The Magic Beans

Seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and amped up dance music, The Magic Beans are as unique as their place of origin, the Colorado Rockies. The group's diverse approach to music leaves no genres off the table and no one left out; many times resulting in one song spanning several styles within a singular composition. The Beans use no pre-recorded tracks or computers in favor of a more traditional approach to music. Original songwriting, diverse instrumentation and a deep musical bond between the musicians is what sets the band apart. Fans have coined terms like “spacefunk”, “ameritronica”, and “groove grass” to try to describe the music they hear from The Magic Beans, and the band embraces these terms and all input from their fanbase to create what is truly a collaborative musical effort. Music that moves your mind and your hips while inspiring a good time is what The Magic Beans are all about. After all, “Music is magic, magic is life (Jimi Hendrix).”

Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius

Led by electric violinist/vocalist Joe Deninzon (www.joedeninzon.com), who has been called “The Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” Stratospheerius has showcased their “frenzied mélange of alt-bluegrass, progressive rock, jazz fusion and funkabilly” throughout the world. The New York-based group has opened for Tim Reynolds, Mickey Hart, and John Scofield, among many others. Their live performances are filled with funky dance grooves, rip-roaring guitar/violin jams, and hooks that mix jazz, funk, rock with Gypsy influences. Stratospheerius was a winner of the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition, and was named “Best Jam Band” in the Musician’s Atlas Independent Music Awards. They have been featured in Relix, Downbeat, and Jazziz, among other publications. The group has just completed their fifth CD, “The Next World…” on Steve Vai’s Digital Nations label.

“…Violinist/singer Joe Deninzon presents us with this gift of hot songs from his rockin’ live shows. Think a bit of Zappa, the Dixie Dregs or Blues Traveler, with the violin being the focal point. Joe’s talents are flat out phenomenal, and the progressive rock tapestry he weaves around himself is carried out to perfection by his amazing band.”
–www.musicmorsels.com

“Deninzon shows how he has earned the nickname the “Jimi Hendrix of violin” as he tears threw a distortion heavy solo that points more in the direction of Guns N Roses’ Slash than Yo Yo Ma.” -Justin Scro www.cashboxmagazine.com

“Memorable hooks, gravity-defying instrumental prowess and a kitchen sink move toward rock… If Bela Fleck and Frank Zappa had a love child in outer space, they might grow up to sound like these guys do.”

Original American Rock'n Blues from Saint Louis MO (Soulard)

Jeremiah Johnson Band

Jeremiah Johnson Born and raised in St. Louis, Jeremiah Johnson is the voice of Mississippi River blues blending with the struggles of everyday life. He began learning guitar at age 6, drawing inspiration from his rich St. Louis blues heritage and legendary guitarists, like Alvin Lee, Eric Clapton and Hank Williams Sr. and Jr. With these influences, Johnson began building his musical foundation.

After relocating to Houston, TX, in 1999, Johnson finished in first place for three consecutive years at the Houston Regional Blues Challenges, sponsored by the Houston Blues Society. During his 10 years there, Johnson merged Texas style with St. Louis blues to create the unique sound you hear today.

In 2011, Johnson was the proud winner of the St. Louis Blues Society IBC Challenge and went on to the semifinals to represent St. Louis in Memphis, TN. One year later, Sirius XM's B.B. King’s Bluesville picked up the Jeremiah Johnson Band, where they can be heard nationwide, as well as on Touch Tunes Jukeboxes in bars and clubs and on radio stations across the country.

Boasting a five album discography, Johnson performs with Benet Schaeffer (drums), and longtime band mate Jeff Girardier (bass), bringing the Jeremiah Johnson Band to its rockin’ bluesy peak.

Grind, Johnson’s latest CD, produced by Devon Allman, features Grammy award winner Yonrico Scott on drums. Grind has been featured on SiriusXM's B.B. King’s Bluesville, and on the international radio show “Confessing the Blues”, broadcasting on 50 stations in 10 countries worldwide. Grind reached the #8 slot on the Billboard Blues Charts the week of November 7th, 2015.

In September 2014, Johnson filmed his docu-concert, Ride the Blues, directed by Australian Producer/Director Gary Glenn, at the historic Capitol Theater in downtown Burlington, IA. The film is live music video about Johnson’s rise to prominence, featuring intimate interview segments, still photography, guitar solos and stunning vocals. Donations from concert attendees were generously given to the theater and to the National Blues Museum, connecting Johnson’s roles of musician and music advocate.

JJB is currently recording a new album with Connor Ray Music, scheduled to come out this Spring.

jeff Girardier The history of Jeremiah Johnson and bassist Jeff Girardier is all on CD. From their first recording in 1999 to Grind, Johnson’s recent studio album, these two bring out the best in each other.

Born and raised in Sullivan, MO., Girardier has been a lifelong musician. After starting with the saxophone in the 5th grade, he began teaching himself guitar at age 14. He was offered a music scholarship to East Central College in Union, MO., under the stipulation he took bass and piano lessons. Even with his extensive musical background, Girardier always felt a connection to the bass.

Johnson and Girardier met through a mutual friend in 1994. After supporting Johnson by attending live shows, Girardier was invited to fill in one night for the current bassist. The rest is history.

Grind was the recording debut of Girardier’s newest guitar, a 1973 Fender Precision bass. This particular guitar gives off a unique tone, contributing the JJB’s overall sound.

Benet Schaeffer Jeremiah Johnson Band drummer, Benet Schaeffer, is the newest but most seasoned member of the band. He contributes his multitude of expertise to steer the band toward their common goal of performing nationally and internationally.

Schaeffer grew up in the LaClede Town neighborhood of St. Louis, a groundbreaking community that created models for future integrated urban housing. This district produced numerous creative minds and boasts visits from Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton. At age five, he knew he was destined to be a percussionist, thanks to the inspiration of Ringo Starr. He was exposed to an eclectic variety of music, including blues, jazz, soul, classical, Irish, Israeli and African, and of course lots of rock ‘n’ roll.

Schaeffer describes himself as a ‘mostly self-taught’ musician. He learned the most by watching and listening to other performers. He was later mentored by the late Billy Gayles, a previous drummer for Ike and Tina Turner.

Schaeffer became the newest member of the Jeremiah Johnson Band after covering for their former drummer at a benefit at BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups.

Instrumental Rock~blending blues, jazz, funk, some electronic and rock from Charleston, WV

TriElement

began with the idea to take instrumental music, imagined with non-traditional ideas, and push the barriers of conventional music. The result is a blending blues, jazz, funk, some electronic and rock. This fusion is approachable with a tasty experimental vibe. Focused on building a strong regional following, the band spent the last several years touring and evolving its sound. Trielement has been described as a “tightly ran progressive trio” with “instrumental music that keeps your attention.” The newest, self-titled release, was recor ded at Fish Bowl Recording, mixed and mastered by Aaron Fisher. This new release (2016) captures a slight change in direction but continues the musically experimental open-mindedness of the band. Trielement completed a small March 2016 tour with Neil Zaza, and as shared the stage with The Aristocrats, Sean O'Bryan Smith, and Soften the Glare to name a few.  
TriElement is:

Raisin Hell w/ Rock Pop COUNTRY from Texas byway of Nashville

SHAINA RHODES

Singer-songwriter Shaina Rhodes found her love of country music in her hometown of Mansfield, Texas.  But there was no question her passion for performance would eventually carry her to Nashville.  The recent move to Music City has made one thing clear -- her energetic live shows are quickly drawing a large and enthusiastic fan base.
Her sound strays from the ordinary, infusing the influence of rock and pop into the genre.  She immersed herself in the songwriting community, and discovered her unique twist on country adds a contagiously fun perspective.
Teaming with writer/producer Rusty Varenkamp, her first EP poetically captures those unforgettable moments of coming into one's own, yet spotlights her ability to turn any gathering into a party.  Her video single, “Raisin' Hell” – co-written with Varenkamp and Preston Brust of LoCash  -- proves that Shaina's brand of party country is in full-force.

Blues Supergroup

GOLDEN STATE - LONE STAR BLUES REVUE

featuring

MARK HUMMEL,

ANSON FUNDERBURGH &

LITTLE CHARLIE BATY 
with drummer WES STARR and bassist RW GRIGSBY

The Golden State/Lone Star Revue is an all-star, cross-country melding of musicians from California -- Mark Hummel (harp-blower, vocalist, bandleader and Grammy nominee), Little Charlie Baty (ex-Nightcats bandleader and guitar hero) and RW Grigsby (bassist) -- and Texans Anson Funderburgh (guitarist and Rockets bandleader) and Wes Starr (famed Austin drummer who has played with a who's who of Texas music royalty).

Hummel's Blues Award nominated release; "The Hustle Is Really On", features the GS/LS Revue, which has just completed a new recording for 2016 release. Besides producing and playing on Blind Pig's "Remembering Little Walter" with Charlie Musselwhite, Billy Boy Arnold, Sugar Ray Norcia, James Harman, Little Charlie Baty, Nathan James, June Core & RW Grigsby, the CD was nominated for a Grammy Award and has recently won Best Blues Album & Best Traditional Blues Album of the year at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, TN.

Hummel's latest CD on ElectroFi "The Hustle Is Really On" just placed #2 on Living Blues Radio and features the Golden State/Lone Star project.


" When this trio of pilots took it for a spin, it soared and rocked, powered by electricity and an elite crew who make flying the blues-friendly skies a reality, not a catchphrase. " Grant Britt - BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE

" On the "Hustle Is Really On", Hummel and his co-conspirators invoke the spirit of these greats with plenty of verve and chops to spare. " Michael Cote - BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE

" Mark Hummel came of age in the early 70s, at the height of rock and roll,like many of his peers went and bought a harmonica and hasn't stopped playing since. A specialist in West Coast Blues he's a seasoned showman who knows more than a thing or two about how to please an audience. " - THE NEW YORKER

LITTLE CHARLIE BATY - is the former leader and masterful guitarist from Alligator Records recording act"Litle Charlie & the Nightcats". Charlie and the Nightcats have recorded 12 albums on Alligator and have been one of the West Coast's most successful blues acts, touring the globe for over 25 years. They've played every major Festival you can think of and every blues joint from Maine to Spain.

Guitar World declares, "Baty's straight blues playing is eye-popping...he stretches solos to the breaking point, skittering on the edge, where one wrong note will bring the whole thing crashing down." "Little Charlie Baty plays as much guitar as Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy put together," raves The Village Voice. "He is one of the swiftest, most fluent guitarists working in any genre".







ANSON FUNDERBURGH - Born in 1954, Anson Funderburgh hails from Plano,Texas, where the youngster first picked up guitar. In high school, he got bit by the blues bug through Jimmy Reed and Lightning Hopkins. By 1978, he started Anson & The Rockets with vocalist/harp player Darrell Nulisch, and the group was signed by Black Top Records a couple years later. In 1986, Nulisch was replaced by Blind Sam Myers who stayed until his death in 2006. The Rockets went on to win 10 Handy?s.

After Myer's death, Funderburgh took a seven-year hiatus from performing to devote to his new family. In 2011, Funderburgh resumed performing with both The Rockets and the Eric Lindell Band. The latter part of 2012 saw the first of many tours of the Golden State/Lone Star Revue. Funderburgh has played with Delbert McClinton (and joins his Sandy Beaches Cruise every year), Boz Scaggs, Snooks Eaglin, Grady Gaines, Earl King and Jimmy Buffett. Funderburgh is also the inspiration for Beavis (Beavis & Butthead); former bassist and creator of the characters, Mike Judge, worked as a Rocket for three years.

Rounding out the GOLDEN STATE-LONE STAR Revue are RW GRIGSBY on bass & famed Texas drummer WES STARR (Anson And The Rockets. Between these two old Rome, GA cronies, they've played with a who's who of famed musicians - Omar & the Howlers, Jr. Brown, Jimmy Vaughn, Asleep At The Wheel, Gary Primich, Kim Wilson, Mike Morgan, Carlene Carter, Hal Ketchum, Earl King, James Cotton & many more!

""they just might be the best blues band going." (Kent Wolgamott/Lincoln Journal-Star)

"a stunning piece of work from start to finish…There is no jockeying for position here despite the formidable talent…Hummel handles lead vocals and is the featured soloist more often than not, but Baty's swinging, sophisticated guitar lines…and Funderburgh's more aggressive and stinging--but always tasteful--approach anchor every song on which they appear. From the swinging, mid-tempo 'Midnight Hour'…to the closing 'End Of The World', an extended slow blues with ominous undertones that are reinforced by the sound of police sirens looping in the background, these artists display a chemistry that evinces their decades of experience touring and performing with some of the top names in the genre…rhythm section deserves special mention…They seem to have scratched the surface of their creative potential--here's hoping this collaboration will endure well into the future." (Roger Gatchet/Living Blues)

""harmonica monster Mark Hummel, of the Blues Survivors, and Little Charlie Baty, monster guitar man from the Nightcats, have teamed up with some other monsters.  Anson Funderburgh of the legendary Texas band, the Rockets, an all star Austin rhythm section.  The result is a California Texas super band...Tasty yet nasty, smooth yet rough, suave boogie woogie for every kind of bootie." (BluesMobile)

"The road from Texas to California runs right through T-Bone Walker, no detours about it. Since Walker packed his guitar and moved there in the 1940's, what is termed as West Coast Blues revolves around a style he defined. Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue is a blues ensemble founded by harmonica player and singer Mark Hummel, featuring guitarists Anson Funderburgh, and Little Charlie Baty. All respected instrumentalists in their own right, this collaboration is a premium showcase of West Coast Blues. ...the guitar interplay is tasteful and they give each other room. The spotlight of course will shine on Hummel as vocalist, but he wisely integrates himself in the band for the reliable blues band situation. As this music continues its generational journey, the Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue represent the contemporary keepers of the flame, assuring the blues will never die." (James Nadal/All About Jazz)

"Harp heavyweight Mark Hummel has assembled a blues supergroup and the 14 titanic tracks here, recorded at Kid Andersen's Greaseland Studio in San Jose, Ca., will knock your socks off. Joining Hummel for these invigorating performances are guitar greats Anson Funderburgh and Little Charlie Baty, plus drummer Wes Starr and bassist R.W. Grigsby. Romping through a variety of blues styles, there's joy and exuberance in every measure...Pure gold." (Paul Freeman/Pop Culture Classics)

""Though described as a blues 'supergroup', this fivesome-plus refreshingly displays none of the showboating or excess such a tag can suggest.  With guitar giants Anson Funderburgh and 'Little' Charlie Baty in tow, master blues harp craftsman Mark Hummel fronts a lineup which lays down a set of blues as rock-solid as each of their individual resumes...Hummel's originals, including 'Cool To Be Your Fool”', 'Lucky Kewpie Doll' and the haunting 'End Of The World' mesh well with well-selected covers such as Mose Allison's 'Stop This World'. Keyboardist Jim Pugh stands out as a guest artist." (Duane Verh/Roots Music Report)

"Baty's fast fingered jazz style of playing is pitted against Funderburgh's smoother, fluid lines and the two play off each other wonderfully...The results are not as much a series of spotlighted solos or a guitar heaven that you might have envisioned.  You can expect to hear that live (and I just did recently) but here the playing is more democratic and ensemble oriented with short, crisp solos.  ...These guys are all veteran bluesmen playing what noted critic Dick Shurman dubs 'Real Deal Blues.'" (Jim Hynes/Elmore)

"the guys have a sound as big as their combined resumes that shines on cuts like a buoyant cover of Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown's 'Midnight Hour,' Lowell Fulson's sassy 'Check Yourself' and Hummel originals like the swinging 'Cool to Be Your Fool,' the twangy and appropriately '50s-leaning 'Lucky Kewpie Doll' and the very slow and smoky 'End of the World.' Guest players on sax, piano and organ help out the all-stars throughout." (Kevin Wierzbicki/antiMusic)

"...Top notch from start to finish, skip this one at your peril." (Mark Smith/Music Revue)

""This is a terrific revue and reports of their shows seems consistent with the music here. The performances are marvelously performed and backed by an excellent rhythm section. Fans of real deal blues are in for a treat with this gem." (Ron Weinstock/In A Blue Mood)

" true blues supergroup crackling with energy and artistry." (B.J. Huchtemann/The Reader)

"Pick Hit...the music here lives up to my lofty expectations... a fine, fine album." (Bill Mitchell/BluesBytes)

"A total modern blues super group, if this doesn't get you fist pumping and jumping around, you better check your pulse to make sure you still have one.  With Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh leading the charge, you know you're in good hands...Hot stuff throughout." (Chris Spector/Midwest Record Review)

"terrific! ...This is an excellent release with more joint contributions and only a few individual blow out solos making it walk like a silent giant." (Bman's Blues Report)

> "great bluesmen from California and Texas - including Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh…This is authentically, real blues music.  Dig it!" (Joe Wolfe-Mazares/Ear To The Ground)
