Stephen Chopek (Memphis, TN)

Ten years ago, Stephen Chopek was performing songs in the New York City subways.

Long before those subway sets, Stephen's apprenticeship with legendary jazz percussionist Leon Parker led to touring and recording with guitarist Charlie Hunter from 2000 to 2002, which opened the door to a world tour with John Mayer and the recording of Any Given Thursday. He’s kept the beat for Marc Broussard, Jesse Malin, The Alternate Routes, The Pimps of Joytime, Todd Carey, The Everymen, Amy LaVere, John Paul Keith, Shannon McNally, and many others.

Not surprisingly, his stories tend to be about what was learned from every adventure; each tour, each artist, each session, was a prerequisite to the next. It is this collection of his experiences that laid the foundation for Stephen’s career as a solo artist.

KOSI (New York CIty)

http://www.kosi-sings.com/bio.php

Kosi (née Akosua Gyebi) is a New York City based singer/songwriter with nappy hair and jazz roots. Although she always brings just a little drama to her compositions and interpretations, she's more than just a drama queen. She's got piercing eyes and a voice that's larger than her body. But, small as she is, she won't fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can follow, from jazz, to rock, then folk, but never more than a few steps away from the blues.

She cites Abbey Lincoln and Nina Simone as her main influences, and has been compared to Tracy Chapman, India Arie, Ma Rainey, and Bessie Smith. However, despite her comparisons and influences, everything about Kosi, from her nappy hair to her sometimes bare feet, from her occasionally jarring lyrics to her now-she's-sweet-now-she's-screaming dramatic interpretations, radiates authenticity. "I am not creating anything," she says, "nor am I deconstructing anything. I am neither an iconoclast nor a follower. I am simply myself, and that is enough." She's more than enough. You definitely want to hear this girl sing... if you can handle it.

These Fine Moments (Austin, Texas)

These Fine Moments, the Austin, Texas-based duo of Hilary Kaufmann and Robert Watts, delivers an honest blend of folk, pop and depression that borrows from ’70’s pop/rock (a la Fleetwood Mac, The Hollies, The Beatles) and American Indie (The Jayhawks, Decemberists, Shovels & Rope) with strong co-vocals and parallel harmonies.  The songs are catchy but evocative, with lyrics and story lines that sometimes go to dark places while coated with a shiny, pop veneer.  Formed in 2011, These Fine Moments  recently released their fifth cd, Break It, Bought It (independent), and perform regularly as a duo or with their full band in the Austin and Seattle areas.

"SWAMP RATS" with guests "The Andeeks Roadshow" (Heartland, Florida)

SWAMP RATS

A unique mix of blues, bluegrass, punk, folk and metal infused in a folk esq style of music. Folk with an edge is what most people say about Florida's "Phantom" folk band Swamp Rats.

City Newspaper, Rochester, New York-
"One genre couldn't even begin to describe Florida-based trio Swamp Rats. The style contains bits of modern train-hopping punk yet is heavily influenced by traditional bluegrass with folk underpinnings — uniquely blended with metal riffs and mucky Southern blues. Each musician plays multiple instruments, so you'll hear specks of acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, stomp box, washboard, and despondent lyrics of life experience and the road."

https://www.reverbnation.com/swampratsmusic

THE ANDEEKS ROADSHOW

An ever evolving solo project with roots in many genres of music, ranging from folk and rock to blues and old country. Really, you should be the judge.

Chris Kasper (Nashville, TN)

"Nothing cuts to the core like a simple song," says Chris Kasper. More than a dozen years into his acclaimed career, the singer/songwriter gets back to the bluesy basics with his fifth album, O, the Fool.  

Inspired by Delta blues, folk music, and the string arrangements of Hollywood film scores, O, the Fool was recorded on both ends of an 800-mile move that took Kasper from Philadelphia to Nashville. He'd already spent much of his adulthood on the road, traveling from city to city, building his fanbase one show at a time. Meanwhile, back at home, his friends were putting down roots and starting families of their own. Kasper couldn't help but question his own choices, and it's that swirl of contrasting feelings — uncertainty, determination, and wanderlust — that fuels O, the Fool

"Ragtime" Jack Radcliffe (Raynham, Massachusetts)

Ragtime' Jack has been performing for more than 30 years. He is a master of traditional country blues and ragtime & stride piano, and a powerful singer/songwriter, as well as songs from the "Great American songbook." He also accompanies himself on the guitar and fiddle.

Jack was inducted into the Old-Time Music Association Hall of Fame in 2014.

Jack's performances always include a lot of uplifting wit, historical anecdotes and connections with local lore, wherever he performs. His background in journalism amplifies a lifelong quest for the cultural framework of his music and the places he performs.

He was a fixture on the coffeehouse circuit in the late 60s and early 70s. His band 'The New Viper Revue' pushed the genre envelopes of blues, folk, country, rock 'n' roll and jazz from 1972 to 1976. Jack resumed his solo career in 1977, then teamed up with reed player Al Oliveira in 1983. He retired from the music business, except for occasional local engagements, in 1987 to raise his sons and work as a newspaper editor. Now he's back to his music fulltime, directing Wepecket Island Records, touring, and recording his own music, producing other artists' recordings and touring nationally.

As the closing credits rolled in Jason Reitman's 2009 Paramount Pictures release UP IN THE AIR, starring George Clooney, many moviegoers wondered who was singing that high, breathy tune about uncertainty and indecision, a now classic song also titled "Up In The Air." The correct answer: Kevin Renick, a singer/songwriter whose stirring, autobiographical tune about the unpredictable and often anxiety-producing nature of life not only caused moviegoers to stay in their seats a few extra minutes at the end of Reitman’s Oscar-nominated film, it also appeared on the offiicial soundtrack to UITA alongside contributions from artists such as CSNY and Elliott Smith.  Renick also recorded a  fresh new studio version of the song for his debut full-length CD, Close To Something Beautiful, available on CDBaby.com, amazon.com and iTunes.

Russell James (Albuquerque, New Mexico)

Beaten but not broken. A fighter and a survivor. Russell James is a songwriter who looks to the hope of the future while reflecting on the pain of his past.

Russell has been playing music his whole life, makng a career out of it over the past few years. Following a decade-long stint working in the world of mental health, Russ was burned out and decided to follow his authentic passion in 2015. Since then he has released an LP, RISE, and a subsequent EP, SEASONS. In 2016 he was selected by the National Parks Arts Foundation as an artist-in-residence and completed his residency at Big Bend National Park. He now crisscrosses the country, playing uplifting shows, camping and fishing along the way as he lives out of his converted 2005 Honda Element, nicknamed The Gray Haven.

Russell’s music has been compared to Sturgill Simpsons, U2, Jason Isbell, and The Cure. His trademark vibrato rasp sings out songs of triumph, of torture, the natural world, and of course hope. Russell is concerned a great deal with mental health and his lyrical themes often reflect this. The traditional singer-songwriter tropes are abandoned as Russell introduces an ethereal, ambient, and dreamy touch to accompany these lyrics of hope and uplift, triumph and tragedy.

Folk/indie country klezmer

 

http://www.emmadilemmasongs.com

Emma Dilemma is a beautiful contradiction of darkly cheerful electrified folk music. Country and Appalachian roots meets the reality of the modern world as simple three chord pop melodies are fleshed out into lush innovative arrangements. Her voice carries shades of country combined with the lyrical poetic honesty of Leonard Cohen to create songs that are as much old time spirituals as they are immediately relevant. In her words and melodies, the world of the intimately personal meets the hard edge of reality.

Worldwide "MAKE MUSIC DAY"

Worldwide "MAKE MUSIC DAY"

Last year, over 800 cities around the world threw citywide music celebrations on June 21.

> Evangeline's is now booking independent bands, solo artists, duos and trios of all genres for Make Music Day,  email: evangelinesbooking@gmail.com  for a possible time slot. <. Support independent music always. <

It all started 35 years ago in France.

In 1982, France’s Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free, live music would be everywhere: street corners and parks, rooftops and gardens, store fronts and mountaintops.

And, unlike a typical music festival, anyone and everyone would be invited to join and play music, or host performances. The event would take place on the summer solstice, June 21, and would be called Fête De La Musique. (In French, the name means both “festival of music” and “make music!”)

Amazingly enough, this dream has come true. The Fête has turned into a true national holiday: France shuts down on the summer solstice and musicians take over. Almost 8% of the country (5 million people) have played an instrument or sung in public for the Fête de la Musique.

Three decades later, the holiday has spread throughout the world and is now celebrated in more than 120 countries. In the U.S., the presenting sponsor is the NAMM Foundation.

Barak Hill is an Americana singer/songwriter and pro­ducer raised in Kansas and Oklahoma, and now based out of Spring­field, Missouri.

In a review of Barak's album This Life I Love, Chris DeRosier of TAG Magazine had this to say: “Where Hill excels, and so few of his contemporaries do, is in making silence and pause into storytelling devices unto themselves...Hill’s lyrical approach is economical and plain-spoken, the words of everyman. But they’re delivered with the careful pacing and assuredness of a man who knows the impact he wants and how to get it. It’s this sense of when not to sing or even play that lends the songs a gravitas they could lose in the hands of someone else.”

9:00 PM21:00

Tough Old Bird (Rochester, NY)

Time for this performance is To Be Announced.

For more info on show time for this date please call: 314-367-3644

Formed in the small community of Fillmore, New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays modern folk music that reflects the landscape it comes from, a place where the last train just pulled out and the carnival is always on its way to the next town.  Since its formation in 2013, Tough Old Bird has taken its music to bars, festivals, coffee shops, music clubs and radio stations all over the Eastern United States. Tough Old Bird's new EP "Where The Great Beasts Are Buried," is a new collection of 6 sparse home recordings done between June and December 2016.  The core of Tough Old Bird’s sound comes from Matthew Corrigan’s intricate acoustic guitar work, and from the voice and nimble harmonica playing of Nathan Corrigan, who holds a degree in literature and brings a poetic sensibility to the duo’s lyrics. Accents of accordion and waves of electric guitar give Tough Old Bird a sound that is at once modern and ancient.

Vanessa's live shows and music has been compared to the raw bare bones rock 'n roll of Nirvana & The Ramones along with the appeal of Liz Phair & Chrissie Hynde, authenticity of classic artists such as Patti Smith, Neil Young & the pop sensibilities of commercial radio artists such as Paramore. Vanessa often tours solo or has featured other musicians/players & more recently Reed Mullin, drummer of Corrosion of Conformity & Producer/Musician Mikel Ross have been backing her as the Vanessa Silberman Band.

www.vanessasilbermanofficial.com/

Boston rock artist Carissa Johnson has proven to leave her mark and she is only getting started. Johnson began playing in various Boston-based bands before stepping out to pursue her own music. With a debut album "For Now" winning “Album of the Year” by the Limelight Music Awards and a nomination for "Punk Act of the Year" by the Worcester Music Awards, Johnson continues to push ahead, writing and producing enthusiastically honest songs. With influences evident in her music, her sound pays tribute to seventies punk and new wave, yet remains authentically her own. It’s an aesthetic that’s proven appealing to fans of all ages. Johnson is known for her straight-forward lyrics and her driving, four on the floor melodies. Her “heartening anthemic rock” stands out amongst her contemporaries. In April of 2017 Johnson won Boston's legendary annual Rock and Roll Rumble, and in December took home the New Act of the Year award at Boston's 30th Annual Music Awards at the House of Blues. Determined to share her music with the world, she continues to book her own tours and play shows throughout the U.S. and Europe – with or without her band The Cure-Alls, now in promotion of their third full-length release, "Talk Talk Talk."

Brent Stewart (CD RELEASE SHOWCASE)

Growing up in the small town of Murphysboro, Ill, not too far from where the Ohio and Mississippi rivers meet, Brent Stewart was always a fan of songwriters. His first cassettes as a kid were Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly. When he was twelve, he bought his first Bob Dylan album. That’s when things changed. He’s been writing and performing his own songs ever since.  Brent began playing his first shows alone with acoustic guitar and harmonica at 15. At 16, he recorded his first album, a cassette-only release. At 17, he formed his first band, The Sympathizers, with whom he recorded four out of print records, the best of which is featured on a recently released compilation, Songs You Never Heard.  Through the years, Brent has been a journalist and writer, but has never strayed too far from his songs. Now living in St. Louis, he’s still writing and performing his original music regularly. In 2017 he released two new albums, The Restlessness, recorded with The Sympathizers and Haze, an acoustic album recorded with guitarist Daniel Tejada.
