Great Lakes Brewing Co.

Great Lakes Brewing Company has given Nosferatu the following description: "Highly hopped imperial red ale rich with flavor, yet remarkably balanced.Like vampires (most especially, the notorious German vampire from the 1920s film era), this beer has a bit of a reputation as ?the Beer with the Bite.?"
Dogfish Head Brewery
60 Minute IPA
is continuously hopped -- more than 60 hop additions over a 60-minute boil. (Getting a vibe of where the name came from?)
Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America's great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. “Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment.” Udderly delightful.
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider
This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.
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!
Labatt Prohibition Series Bourbon Barrel Ale
Introducing flavor that's too big to ban. Our new Prohibition Series is a nod to Labatt's role in keeping the beer flowing during America's “dry spell”. The two distinctively bold flavors, Bourbon Barrel Ale and Apple Harvest Ale, transport drinkers back to that exciting era of smugglers and speakeasies.
21st Amendment Black IPA
Back in Black is our newest year-round beer available now in six pack cans and on draft. Brewed like an American IPA but with the addition of rich, dark malts, this beer has all the flavor and hop character you expect with a smooth, mellow finish.

Bell's Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bell's signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer.
Young's Double Chocolate Stout
The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk
grain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla
A classic. Mainly
roasted malt, with a
touch of cream and
milk to it

Indie / Alternative / Rock from Harrisonburg, VA
The Dawn Drapes is an alternative indie rock trio that formed in early 2011 as the brain child of songwriters Michael Sanzo and Daniel Rice. Early on the group played folk inspired rock and roll with a hint of avant garde. Over the next few months the group gained experience by playing with a rotating group of musicians that brought influences from many different genres, further expanding the music palette of The Dawn Drapes. In May of 2011 the group recorded their first full length self-titled and self-recorded album, during which their sound began to move away from the folk rock genre hinting that something truly unique was on the horizon. In 2012 singer / drummer Greg "Eggy" Gorman joined the band to round out The Dawn Drapes sound. The heavy hitting, yet well thought out drumming style of Eggy, along with his ability to harmonize perfectly with the rest of the group finally completed the band's sound which has influences ranging from Nirvana to Fleetwood Mac. Since then the band has been playing extensively up and down the east coast all the while honing their craft and pushing their musical boundaries.

A retro-soul blowout of epic proportions" -Blurt Magazine
O n April 29, 2014, the debut album from Sonny Knight & The Lakers, I'm Still Here , will be released by Secret Stash Records on LP, CD, and digitally. In person, Sonny Knight defies his 66 years of age. When he talks, his low gravely voice betrays the roundness of his singing. His smile and gestures radiate youthful energy with the reassuring confidence of a captain or pilot; they bring a sense of ease rather than being brash. He is a natural performer, even on a cold Thursday night in Secret Stash's basement recording studio. Standing in a rehearsal room, framed by old guitar amps, instruments, and blanket covered walls, Sonny stands up to the mic to lay down the vocal track for “I'm Still Here (Pt. 2).” Despite his drab surroundings, eyes closed, he performs for an invisible audience. His body moves in rhythm, arms jabbing like a boxer before a fight. As the horns hit, he jerks his head in time then begins delivering each line. His face physically expresses the emotion of every word and as he reaches the crescendo of the chorus, knees bent, head tilted toward the ceiling, his mouth buckles to unleash the exclamation, “I'M STILL HERE!”
In reference to “I'm Still Here,” Sonny relates, “That song is me giving my thoughts and ideas about what my life is about. People are trying to live too much in the future, or are stuck in the past. The idea is to focus on right now.” In part one of the song, he describes the worries and doubts he experienced upon returning from Vietnam. The world was a confusing place, and he discovered childhood friends had grown up and gotten in trouble. Its message is about not losing sight of yourself while getting through difficult times. Part two stresses how paramount it is to live in the present. Knight recounts, you “never know when life's ride will come to an end. I'm still here. I know one thing's for sure, can't start it again. I'm still here.” For Sonny Knight, making the album I'm Still Here was like pressing the reset button on his music career. The synthesizers of the 1980s and the four on the floor disco flourishes of the 1970's have been replaced by classic arrangements and production values commonplace when his career was just beginning.
He was born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1948, moved to St. Paul as a youngster, and took to music. Little Sonny Knight & The Cymbols recorded their debut 45 for New Teenage Records in 1965, when he was 17. Then music took a backseat to a three year call of duty in the army. A few more years in the Bay Area followed before Sonny returned to Minnesota in the mid-1970s and joined the band Haze. Like many other groups, opportunities dried up in the 1980s and Sonny found a full time job as a truck driver. Musical work came again in the 1990s when former Valdons vocalists Monroe Wright and Maurice Young extended an invitation to join their new group, The Bachelors. In 2012, The Valdons were featured in Secret Stash Records' compilation Twin Cities Funk & Soul . The record spawned multiple concerts which reunited musicians and singers from the era to perform for new generations; it also revived The Valdons, for which Wright and Young tapped Knight as a new member. After six months of working together in soul revue shows, Sonny and Secret Stash's Eric Foss formed the group Sonny Knight & The Lakers.

In the spring of 2013, Sonny and the Lakers hit the ground running – playing gigs a few short weeks after their first rehearsal. Within months they had grown into their own as a band. In the fall, they spent a long weekend at a cabin in Northern Minnesota and it became a defining moment. Staying up late, listening to old 45s, learning gospel songs, and wood shedding tunes was a way for the band to develop a similar vocabulary and refine their direction. It transformed them from a group of good players into a band. When they returned home, they set up a string of performances and residencies in Minneapolis and St. Paul. As they honed the craft of putting on a great live show, they built a following of fans. By the end of their residency at the Eagles club in South Minneapolis, virtually no breaks interrupted or slowed down their live sets. Non-stop rehearsals and live performances helped The Lakers tighten up their sound. That, coupled with the inspiration found during the cabin trip, laid the ground work for recording an album.
The way I'm Still Here was recorded was the product of many months of thought, just as the songs on the album were developed over hours of collaborative effort for Sonny and the band. The album covers a wide range of tempos and soul forms. Since the Lakers were spearheaded by a reissue label focused on obscure music, the band encompasses more than just Motown and Stax inspired sounds. The many hours spent digging for and listening to forgotten sixties and early seventies soul and funk records have practically oozed into the rehearsal space and studio. What stands out most are the strong performances by the band and Sonny's exuberance and energy. As a listener, there's never any doubt about what feelings he wants to convey.
Nearly fifty years have passed since Knight's first recording, but for the first time he feels like the center of attention. He says, “Sometimes I wonder, why me? Why are all these great things happening now? All I can say is thanks. These are dreams that I had forgotten. Only now that they are starting to come true do I remember that I had them at all.”

UK Blues Award Wining Artist/Producer/London, UK "....at last a woman who plays guitar like a goddess, sings like an angel, writes like Dylan and smiles like the devil" Booker T.
UK British Blues Award winner Bex Marshall's unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues rock, ragtime and roots pickin'.
Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman's heartache and rock diva soul. Bex is a writer of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius, and now with anything up to a 7 piece band, she is literally a musical tornado. Bex Marshall just won second place in the UKs Blues Awards 2013 for Best British Blues Vocalist
On Bex's latest self produced album you will find swamp blues, splashes of gospel and colorful bluegrass all with an exciting lyrically British twist.
A Devonshire lass now residing in London, the product of two very different family's, one blue blooded landed gentry, the other Irish Romany.
As a child at family gatherings her uncles would always play and stand her on the table to sing, at 11 years old she was given a 1963 Gibson Hummingbird by her Uncle David and started playing, she got hooked on instrumentals and classical guitar standards which stretched her fingers and gave her a great basis for her own music to develop, flamenco, ragtime, country chicken pickin', rock and on to blues and roots where she is now in her element.
She always had a passion for travelling, its in her blood and trained as a croupier at 18 began her travels around the world working gaming tables on cruise liners to Park Lane even dealing illegal poker games in Amsterdam. She hitch hiked the coast of Australia on cattle trains and always with a guitar on her back living and storing tales.
She is a musical adventuress, described in the world press with comparisons to Memphis Minnie, Joan Armatrading, JJ Cale, Derek Trucks and….“Bonnie Raitt and Led Zep jamming in an everglade moonshine joint”.
Bex has been asked to be the guest JANIS by 'Big Brother and the Holding Company's original guitarist Sam Andrews on their their upcoming 2014 European Tour!

Maine's 2 best folk acts
"Robustly played, masterful amalgamation of bluegrass, folk, and gospel for the Millennial Generation... The Ghost of Paul Revere prove that superior roots music can come from anywhere." - No Depression
Genre: Holler-Folk & Stomp
Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine's holler-folk band. With a sound built around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music, their songs have unique identities while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere. They use a masterful combination of melody and energy, somewhere between folk and foot-stomping bluegrass, that has already given Ghost shows legendary status. Fans have traveled vast distances from the most remote corners of the country to catch the band as they make an increasingly bigger mark on the Northeast music scene.
The Ghost was formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry. They put the Ghost of Paul Revere together in 2011 with Matt Young. In that short time they have played across the Nation, bringing holler-folk into houses, bars, and music halls. They have shared the stage with Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Sean Hoots, Will Dailey, and other nationally touring acts. Their critically acclaimed debut EP, "North", released in the summer of 2012, quickly became one of the best selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for 2013. Their first full length album, "Believe", was recorded live with Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and, when released in January 2014, it quickly went on to hit the Billboard Northeast chart. It was the best selling local album in Maine and New Hampshire for 10 months straight and continues to be in the top five more than a year later. The Ghost of Paul Revere has since sold out Port City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theater several times, won Best In Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, and were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015. In 2014, the Ghost of Paul Revere also started their own two day music festival, Ghostland, which will return for its second year in the fall of 2015.
a nationally touring songwriter & one man band based in Maine. Since being chosen as Maine's Best New Act he's been putting out new music at a rapid pace while touring the country, playing major folk festivals like GrassRoots and supporting great bands like Frontier Ruckus and Lake Street Dive.

“ Engaging, breathtaking, each work on this folk masterpiece is chilling. Max García Conover is a composer of great talent; his songs are unmistakably appealing. ” — Performer Magazine
“ As Burrow comes to its last tracks, I found that the whole album never seemed to die down. 5 out of 5. ” — Confront Magazine

Alt. Indie Rock from L.A.
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with LA-based indie pop/rock artist Layne to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Somebody”! The moody video travels throughout the streets of Los Angeles, from tunnels to laundromats, homes to highways, all interspersed with clips of the band performing.
The music is incredibly catchy and, for some reason, calls to mind the resurgence of 80's pop and rock music that is being used lately in indie horror films. There is a delightfully dreamy and airy feel to this track that is overlain with melancholic wistfulness. This may be a deviation from the usual metal/electronic fare that is posted here regularly but I believe it's a great fit and I'm definitely intrigued

With Antonik on the majority of lead vocals, guest vocalists on Better For You include: two-time Grammy award-winner Mike Mattison (The Derek Trucks Band, The Tedeschi-Trucks Band) and American Blues Music award-nominee Shakura S'Aida. Other guest artists include blues Juno-winners Steve Marriner (MonkeyJunk) and Julian Fauth, as well as Canadian music veterans Suzie Vinnick and Richard Underhill.
Since its release, Better For You has solidified Chris' reputation as one of Canada's hottest young blues artists: the album spent three weeks at #1 on DAWG 101.9 FM's weekly album chart (Canada's only all blues-rock FM station), has continued charting on the Roots Music Report, and has attained significant airplay in Canada, the US and Europe, including regular play on Sirius XM (B.B. King's Bluesville), the BBC, Jazz FM, CBC, Galaxie, and more.
Critics and blues music industry experts in North America and Europe agree that Better For You was one of the best releases of 2013. Here is what some had to say:
“One of the finest releases from the Great White North in many a year.......a living and breathing masterpiece. Antonik is a blues star rising.”- Cascade Blues Association, Oregon
"The best Canadian blues-rock album of 2013....outstandingly good.....the best sophomore release I have listened to in recent memory." - Blues Underground Network
“A salient reference point is Eric Clapton, especially in Antonik's warm, thick guitar sound, which often sounds in both tone and note selection like mid-to-late 1980s Clapton, around the time of Journeyman.“ - Blues Blast Magazine
“'Better For You' is the sound of someone taking the blues to a new place......[the song] ‘Nothing I Can Do' features a truly spectacular guitar solo that has shades of Buddy Guy and Hendrix" - American Blues Scene
“A superb album....[Turn To Shine] features a superb guitar solo that could easily have been Derek Trucks.” - Blues in Britain
To live up to these accolades on stage, Chris delivers an unbridled and passionate live performance that gives audiences more than their money's worth and leaves them wanting more. An exceptional guitarist who has been compared to Clapton, a soulful singer and an inventive songwriter, Chris is the real deal.

Whether rockin out with the band or as a solo act, Luther Trammell brings the blues home. Luther has played with The Blues Imperials, Shirley King (Daughter of BB King). Luther and his band performed as House Band for the House of Blues in 2007. Luther commands a sound from his acoustic guitar like none other. Luther's strong voice gives his songs a depth of feeling and experience.
Although Luther does still play with a full band from time to time, he has decided to devote his time delivering his own style and message through his unique style of guitar playing and his distinct vocals. This is Luther's first solo experience and the majority of the songs on this album are cover tunes from artists that have influenced Luther most of his life. He will be in the studio at the end of the year recording a new CD with all original songs.
