Sugaray Rayford
Part 102 of the No Stinkin’ Service Charge Blues Series!
Friday April 3, 2020
– This concert is being rescheduled for Fall/Winter 2020. Date will be finalized once health officials give the OK.

 

 

Sugaray Rayford is a colossus of an entertainer with a voice so big it could knock a house down, yet at times, so tender it could “move you to tears” (UK Vibe). “A true badass marrying the funky soulfulness of classic R&B records while acknowledging contemporary sensibilities.” (Pop Matters)

So, “Sit back and listen to one of today’s best blues-soul singers. Even better, attend one of his live performances where his energy can totally galvanize an audience.” (Elmore Magazine) read more…

Special EFX All-Stars
Thursday April 30, 2020
– This concert is being rescheduled for Fall/Winter 2020. Date will be finalized once health officials give the OK.

 

 

Special EFX featuring Chieli Minucci’s latest album, the intriguingly titled All Stars, is one of their most ambitious, eclectic and adventurous ever, capturing the explosive yet well-attuned synergy the guitarist has shared on the road with various lineups of renowned longtime musical collaborators these past few years. Special EFX now is a true collective, with varying elements and artists coming together to execute and build powerfully upon Minucci’s expansive musical vision. read more…

Eilen Jewell
Friday, May 29
– Ticket sales for this concert are on hold while we await health officials to give the OK.

 

 

 

 

American Songwriter describes Eilen Jewell as “one of America’s most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices.” That singular voice springs forth from a woman of more than one mind, and she taps into many of them on 2019’s Gypsy on Signature Sounds. 

By turns personal and political, pissed off and blissed out, Jewell’s first album of original material since 2015 expands brief moments of joy into lifetimes, and distills epic sentiments and persistent doubts into succinct songs. Yet rather than pulling artist and listener this way and that, the tensions within and between these 12 tracks propel her eighth studio album forward as a remarkably cohesive full-length.

Joanne Shaw Taylor
with special guest JD Simo
Thursday, June 18
– Ticket sales for this concert are on hold while we await health officials to give the OK.

 

 

 

 

Six albums in, Joanne Shaw Taylor has nothing to prove, but plenty to say. Reckless Heart, the follow-up to 2016’s Top 20 hit Wild, finds the British blues musician in glorious form and a mischievous mood, one minute bearing her claws with catty lyrics, the next deliriously in love.

In several senses, it’s an album of firsts -the first made in Joanne’s adopted home town of Detroit, the first produced by her close friend Al Sutton (Greta Van Fleet,Kid Rock), the first largely recorded live and the first to feature an unplugged solo performance and, by chance, a passing train.

Amanda Anne Platt and the Honeycutters
Friday, August 21
– Ticket sales for this concert are on hold while we await health officials to give the OK.

 

 

Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters are on tour supporting the release of their new album, Live at the Grey Eagle, recorded in front of a hometown crowd in Asheville, North Carolina.

There is an empathetic and charming wit ingrained in Amanda’s songwriting. She has a knack for accessing a deep well of emotion and applying it to her storytelling, whether she is writing from her own experiences or immersing herself into the melody of emotions in another person’s life.
