Friday, October 24th:
8:00pm: ($10 cover) Western Spur is a cooperative of like minded professional musicians who work on and off Broadway. Our members have appeared on original cast albums and backed up Tony award winners on stage and in concert. Most of our members have toured, nationally and internationally, in support of acts such as Les Paul, Little Feat, and Wilson Pickett. Western Spur offers an eclectic mix of Texas Swing as well as Country and American Standards.
11:00pm: Direct Divide ($5 cover) Formed in Seattle, WA, Direct Divide proves that the violin belongs in rock music. They combine the energy of an electric guitar with power of drums and bass alongside electric violin and piano to complement story driven lyrics with emotion and intensity. With high energy live shows and relatable lyrics, Direct Divide builds its foundation on powerhouse female vocals over constantly shifting hard rock song structures and orchestral instrumentation. They aim to suck listeners into the environment and emotions they evoke in their music.
Saturday, October 25th:
8:00pm: Shuffle Jump & Moan ($10 cover) Shuffle, Jump & Moan is a compilation band, comprised of United Jersey Blues Network performers that play in other top area bands. The style of the music covers traditional blues from masters like T-Bone, Gatemouth Spaan and BB. Plus covers tracks from contemporary greats like Clapton, Cray, Lang, Stevie Ray and more. Everything from Shuffles to Rhumbas, Slow Moanin’ Blues and Jump Swing.
11:00pm: Dry Waters ($5 cover) Come out and celebrate a night of music with “DRY WATERS”. Combining elements of classic rock, blues, and metal, makes for a very original sound. From Cory’s physicals drumming, to Emanuel’s water like sound, to Malcom’s Getty Lee base runs, and a guitar player who evokes the spirt of legendary 60’s guitarist who’s passed on. It should make for one mind blowing experience.
