Bakelite 78

Genre: Swing , Blues , Jazz , Rock

  1. Friday, June 12 9:00 PM (21+)

Bakelite 78′s repertoire is an eclectic mix of swing, Dixieland, blues, proto-country, and cabaret, as well as a plethora of originals in hybrids of these styles.  Founding member Robert Rial arrived in Chicago in 2000, eager to engage in the music he loved most: dance orchestra music/swing, country-blues, dixieland, tin pan alley, rock and American folk. He played his guitar and tenor banjo and took solace in his 78 R.P.M. records (some discs were made from an early form of plastic similar to Bakelite). “Bakelite 78′s” preserved the music of the early 20th Century, and the band was born to keep classic crooner vocals & speak-easy jazz/lounge/cabaret alive.  The original lineup of Bakelite 78 performed throughout Chicago from 2003 to 2008. The group released their acclaimed debut “It’s A Sin” in 2006, and followed up in 2008 with “Delta Disc”, (produced in Mississippi by Jimbo Mathus, and partially funded by a City Of Chicago Department Of Cultural Affairs’ generous Community Arts Assistance Program Grant).

Active Child w/ Low Roar

Genre: Electronica , Experimental

  1. Sunday, June 28 7:30 PM (All ages)

Pat Grossi, aka Active Child, is no stranger to the stage. Now residing in Los Angeles, Grossi grew up in the northeast as a member of the Philadelphia Boy’s Choir.  Since, he’s gone on to release two renowned EPs, an LP, and toured the world. “Singing with the choir was my first experience performing,” he reflects, “but it wasn’t until I was called out of the group and sang solo that I really felt the rush of live performance. I used to get so nervous for those solos, standing knees locked in anticipation of that moment when I would be summoned to step forward.” 


Fast forward to present day and we see Grossi at center stage once again on his sophomore full-length, Mercy. “I’ve always been a vulnerable performer and writer. This is nothing new. But the new style of production in regards to my voice was almost entirely due to a change in taste. In the past, effecting my voice with reverb and doubling was exciting, but now it bores me. When you remove those layers there’s an undeniable authenticity. But there’s no deep meaning behind the change. Its speaks for itself. As you grow you sing differently, phrase melodies differently, and produce differently. Everything is always changing based on what excites you in that moment.”


Serving as a follow up to 2011’s critically acclaimed LP, You Are All I See, and 2013’s Rapor EP (featuring Mikky Ekko and Ellie Goulding), Mercy showcases Grossi’s raw, honest, and incredible vocals like never before. “On Mercy I wanted to feel new again in my own music. It’s been four years since my last full length album and I wanted these songs to reflect my growth as an artist over that time. And I wanted my voice to be heard, and not just felt.” Produced and recorded in Brooklyn with Van Rivers (Blonde Redhead, Fever Ray) the ten track LP is a collection of love songs, each shining a different light on the subject. “This album more than previous releases feels like more of a collaboration between the producer and I. His fingerprints are all over these songs and he really pushed me vocally, more than anyone has before.”


Written almost exclusively on the harp and piano, Mercy opens with “1999,” a juxtaposition of playful harmonies and sullen narrations of past love.  Effortlessly descending from one track to the next, upbeat songs like “Never Far Away” tell of deep, secure love, while those like “Darling” tell a more somber story of lost love as Grossi plucks innocently on the harp in the background. “Darling has always stuck out to me. Sometimes the simplest phrases and thoughts can encapsulate the most complex emotions. When I wrote that song I was about as low as I've ever been and of all the songs it's the one that truly felt like it was given to me. It passed through me quickly…the best ones usually do.” Mercy closes with “Too Late,” a song of reflection and regret featuring Grossi on the piano and his layered, flawless-yet-ghostly harmonies on the forefront.  The album wraps with the words, “maybe it’s too late for us, now I know, now I know,” leaving the listener with some finality to the whirlwind of heartfelt emotions experienced throughout

“After writing for a few years I started to wonder what the purpose is of writing another song. You question the validity of each statement, each lyric, until you start to drive yourself crazy with doubt. This is an artist’s worst fear: that loss of vision. As I worked through this doubt I started to make sense of why I write and what moves me to create. And for me the real motivation is emotional clarity, without music as an outlet I’m not sure how I would cope.”


Mercy will be released nationwide on June 16 via Vagrant Records.

Albert Cummings

Genre: Blues Guitar

  1. Sunday, July 19 7:30 PM (All ages)




Breaking every cliche associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes natural to Albert Cummings. The Massachusetts native learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. Before graduating he heard the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan, however, and was floored by the virtuosity. While in college he saw Vaughan perform and he returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve. Not until he was 27, an age when other musicians were either already established or had long ago put their dream aside for the realities of life, did Albert finally decide to go for it.

An intense period of wood shedding resulted Albert sharing a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section. So taken with Albert's fire and passion were bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton that they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording. In 2003 the aptly-titled From the Heart (Under the Radar), with the awesome power of a Nor'easter and the soul of a natural born artist.

Tours and shows with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and others brought his music to an audience grateful for the opportunity to be rocked hard by a man possessed to play every song like his life depended on it.

Albert Cummings is a man of his times and the man for the times. He has built his own musical edifice that expresses his thoughts and dreams. It is a vision that alternately excites and soothes while also clearly providing a glimpse of his unlimited future. The best is yet to come.

Alpha Rev Unplugged w/ Jared & The Mill

Genre: Alternative Rock , Pop , Singer-songwriter

  1. Tuesday, July 28 7:30 PM (All ages)

“I want the band to mark a moment in time, to celebrate the being of something new;

The light at the end of the tunnel, the first step toward revealing something that needs to be seen,” says singer-songwriter Casey McPherson of Alpha Rev. Following the Triple A Radio success of New Morning (2010), the band’s third album Bloom (March 19, 2013 on Kirtland Records) is a set of personally transformative and redemptive songs, born in the spirit of creative expansion, and a mandate to blossom and grow.

“To bloom implies something beautiful is going to happen, but it’s a process---just like our own journeys,” says McPherson.

“Casey and I met when we were really young, and have been playing music with each other off and on over the past 13 years,” explains guitarist Zak Loy. “That growth comes across in the music the group is creating now,” he says. Rooted in lyrical wisdom, the more recent addition of drummer Tabber Millard---trained by master percussionists---is credited for the band’s contemporary tribal rhythms. “Tabber means drummer boy in Arabic and his life revolves around this gift he has,” says McPherson. Newest Alpha Rev addition Jeff Bryant rounds out the band, playing pedal steel, piano, organ, and bass.

With a glistening rock sound that is at once fragile and tough, Bloom picks up threads from the past while it takes a big bite into the eternal here and now. Drawing from the wellspring of American history, the grandeur of its landscape, and life's sweet and tragic mysteries, McPherson leans into his personal challenges as well as the wages of the 21st Century and emerges with a triumphant statement on the ways in which music can serve as a constant source of strength and inspiration.

The shimmering, hymn-like “Sing Loud” - created with songwriter/producer Jamie Kenney (“He’s cut from the same stone I am,” says McPherson) - confronts a failing relationship, “But with the belief that you’re going to experience freedom again,” McPherson explains.

Love and death informs the heart-wrenching “Lexington,” based on actual historical love letters from Civil War soldiers to their wives and families. “The amount of pain they were in to be away from those they loved while their lives were at stake was incredible,” says McPherson.

“’Black Sky,’ is about dealing with losing everything you have from a fire. ‘Lonely Man,’ is about losing your family from working too much and ‘When You Gonna Run,’ is about losing the ability to look good in front of somebody,” he says.

“Alpha Rev is a collective of musicians,” explains McPherson, “Once you join, you’re never really gone.” On Bloom, Alex Dunlap holds down the bass, while Brian Batch (violin, viola) and Dave Wiley (cello) serve as the band’s string section. The players were joined in the studio by a longtime friend of McPherson's, Dwight Baker (Brandi Carlile, Bob Schneider); he oversaw the project in his Austin studio. Producer Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard) also worked with the band for two songs on Bloom. “Austin is a great city that takes care of musicians; it helps foster ideas and creativity,” says McPherson. Producer Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard) also worked with the band for two songs on Bloom.

Since his beginnings in Jackson, Texas, where he was classically trained on piano, McPherson has traveled the distance: Working in a recording studio by age 16, at 17 he was touring overseas as a keyboard player; at 19 he formed Endochine, its name translating from its Latin and Greek roots as “to explode from within.” Turning once again to ancient alphabets for his band’s handle, “Alpha Rev is a combination of the Greek word for the beginning, and the incredible Latin prefix rev, as in revolve, revolt, reveal,” he says. The band’s Hollywood Records debut, New Morning (produced by David Kahne) rose to #3 on the Triple A chart, reaching an audience 40 million listeners-strong. The title song and “Phoenix Burn” also entered the charts.

Yet while scaling his own dreams, McPherson lost both his father and brother to suicide. Forming in 2005, Alpha Rev, became a vehicle to grapple with the outpouring of grief that results from losses of that magnitude. Today, McPherson helps others who've lost family to depression and suicide as a volunteer spokesperson for the National Institute of Mental Health organization, Mental Health America of Texas [http://mhatexas.org/].

“Music changes people,” says McPherson. “We’re trying to find happiness in music as opposed to self-destruction,” he says. “It’s my desire, and has always been to be a part of our group, that we make each other better musicians, we make each other better men, we challenge each other, we fight and we forgive. Everybody in the band has really adopted that ideal,” says McPherson. “Alpha Rev is more than a band name---it’s a motto.”

An Evening with Howard Jones solo - the songs, the piano, and the stories

Genre: Piano , Singer-songwriter

After an extraordinarily successful 2012 which included tours of Japan, UK, USA, Singapore and Australia, Howard Jones continued touring in 2013 which marked 30 years since the release of his first single ‘New Song’ in 1983. A tour of the USA with Erasure’s Andy Bell in August and three very successful special UK concerts in November marked this special milestone.

The August 2013 US Tour included a long overdue return to the legendary Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and a spectacular sold out concert at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga (San Francisco). This was the first time Howard had played The Greek since the eighties. The tour culminated at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City playing to an astonishing 13,000 people. This was the first time Howard had ever played a concert in Mexico.

At the November 2013 30 year celebration UK concerts Howard debuted a brand new suite of songs under the name ‘Engage’ which were presented with bespoke video and multi-projection. The response to this new material was extraordinary with many claiming it was the best music Howard has ever written and performed.

Howard appeared as special guest to Michael Sheen on January 4 2014 at BBC Radio Two in London. Howard performed ‘Hide and Seek’ live and Michael played the world premiere of ‘Human Touch’ from the Engage set.

Howard Jones is playing multiple festival dates in the UK in the summer of 2014 including the Rewind Henley festival on 17 August 2014. He then embarks on a huge US, Canada and South America tour co-headlining with The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey.

It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene with his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers. Anyone who was around in the mid to late eighties will remember those high energy gigs and his first two albums Human’s Lib and Dream into Action. They lived in the higher reaches of the album charts in the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Australia and many other countries in the 1984-86 period, and the hits kept coming……..New Song, What is Love?, Pearl in the Shell, Hide and Seek,(which he performed at Live Aid in 1985), Like to Get to Know You Well, Look Mama, Things Can only Get Better, Everlasting Love and the quintessential No One is To Blame, which reached No.1 in the US.

An Evening with Madeleine Peyroux

Genre: Guitarist , Jazz , Pop , Singer-songwriter

  1. Thursday, September 24 8:00 PM (All ages)
  2. Friday, September 25 8:00 PM (All ages)

‘The only thing that matters is the song’ says singer songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. A conviction that along with a ‘one of a kind ’ voice has carried the award winning artist from busking on the streets of Paris, all the way to stardom.

Sixteen years after her Dreamland debut, it is not hard to see why Peyroux’s genre defying blend of jazz and pop continues to enthrall the music world.

Through six universally praised albums ‘Jazz’s brightest star’ has gained a reputation for an impeccable choice of material, creating a genuine buzz of anticipation amongst fans and the industry at large.

Lending her seductively expressive voice to classic standards as well as thoroughly modern tunes, Peyroux has made an undiminishing mark as an uncanny and insightful ‘interpreter’.

From Holiday to Dylan, Bessie Smith to Leonard Cohen, Peyroux sheds a striking new light onto familiar musical gems while making each phrase and croon her very own, some say ‘creating new classics along the way’.

The free spirited singer, songwriter and guitarist began her musical adventure as a teenager in Paris, when ‘drawn to the music of the streets’, the 15 year old left high school and joined a touring blues and jazz band. ‘Someone gave me early Columbia recordings with Billie Holiday and instructed me to learn the songs'.

Years later, her undeniable talent was spotted at a New York club by Atlantic Records’ Yves Beauvais who signed her to the label and co-produced her 1996 debut album Dreamland. Peyroux’s dreamily husky voice enchanted punters and critics alike but it was the 2004 Careless Love that proved to be a milestone release for the artist, bringing mainstream recognition and marking the start of a prolific collaboration with producer Larry Klein.

The charmingly humble artist who ‘didn’t have any expectation of becoming someone that could make a dent in the outside world.’ has done just that. ‘There is no telling what the future will bring’ but it is clear to see that Madeleine Peyroux’s musical journey is only just beginning.

Anna and Elizabeth with Eli West

Genre: Folk , Singer-songwriter

  1. Monday, June 29 7:30 PM (All ages)

THEIR MUSIC comes from a heartfelt commitment to the mountain music tradition. Anna and Elizabeth have immersed themselves with old (and young) masters and folklorists, playing on porches and in kitchens, staying up all night to learn just one more song. Each used college to dive deep into history and archives, reading folklore and stories, listening to scratchy records of haunting voices, learning from relatives of long-gone greats. Their music has evolved; raw, sparse ballads, sweet lullabies, driving fiddle tunes and banjo songs, home music where less is more. Elizabeth’s remarkable deep mountain voice and Anna's modern one, an uncanny blend create a unique combination.

THE ROAD lays out their simple goal: to play in small, local places – schools and community centers, small theaters and living rooms – where the audience can move up close. Wherever they go comes an almost astonished silence as they begin, thunderous applause as they end. Notable appearances: High Museum of Modern Art (Atlanta), The Swannanoa Old Time Gathering (Asheville), The Lexington Opera House (KY), The Jefferson Theater (VA), The Brooklyn Folk Festival, The Watermelon Park Festival (VA) and Sharq Taronolari (Uzbekistan).

http://annaandelizabeth.com

Eli West is a Seattle-based multi-instrumental musician and interactive graphic designer. With an interest in angular phrasing and non-tradional improvisation within the historic precedents of bluegrass and old-time music, his playing both grounds and pushes the ensembles he is involved with.
