Papadosio - Live Webcast Nov 2016

This range of frequencies is where Papadosio tends to spend their time, sometimes dining in deep space, and other times snacking right on your front porch. Papadosio strives to create music that is strangely familiar, and calls all walks of humanity to bask in a unique experience celebrating the one constant in an ever changing world: music.

Join Papadosio in an effort to create, augment, and rejoice in the universal language of music. Most importantly, have a good time.”

Donna the Buffalo Winter Tour 2016

Donna the Buffalo - Winter Tour 2016
From Donna the Buffalo
“Distinctive, groove-heavy, and danceable, Donna the Buffalo is a band for the people. One of the most dynamic and determined bands continuously touring America for since 1989, Donna the Buffalo has created a community environment at their shows through their distinctive, groove-heavy, and danceable music.”

Donna the Buffalo is happy to announce their new year’s and winter tour for 2016! They travel into Florida leading up to the New Year with a show in Ponte Vedra Beach on the 30th of December and they ring in the new year on NYE at Skipper’s in Tampa. They continue on in early January through Stuart, Boca Raton, Key West, and Orlando before heading back up north for stops in Saxapahaw, NC as well as Charlottesville, and Richmond, Virginia before a short break.

The tour picks back up again at The Hamilton in Washington, DC on January, 22nd as they travel south to play Asheville’s Orange Peel the following day. The following Thursday they meet up with Ben Cohen (Co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s) for another Stampede show – this one Free – in Plymouth, NH on the 28th. That weekend they roam the northeast with shows in Jim Thorpe, Buffalo, and Infinity Hall in Norfolk.

In early February they hit the Brooklyn Bowl, Club Helsinki Hudson, the Narrow Center for the Arts in Fall River and the Bull Run Concert Series near Boston, MA. Inventive New York City-based band, City of the Sun will open along select winter shows.

Donna the Buffalo is the host band for the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music, Art & Dance in Miami and they’ll be performing throughout the weekend from Thursday-Sunday, February 18-21. Stay tuned for more dates to be announced for late winter and early spring!

Donna the Buffalo is Jeb Puryear (vocals, electric guitar) and Tara Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, scrubboard) joined by David McCracken (Hammond organ, Hohner Clavinet & piano), Kyle Spark (bass) and Mark Raudabaugh (drums). “It’s been really fun with this lineup,” Puryear says. “You get to the point where you’re playing on a really high level, things are clicking and it’s like turning on the key to a really good car. It just goes.”

Donna the Buffalo is a band for the people that is accessible, positive, and memorable. With roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric American mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country.

“For the dizzying array of styles and genres with which they work, Donna The Buffalo maintain a surprising level of consistency… over the course of their 25-year career, they retain a sharp focus that has helped them create some truly lasting music…” writes Elmore. “Few groups are this comfortable as performers, and even fewer would take as many risks.”

Announcing The Everyone Orchestra 2016 Winter Shows

Everyone Orchestra - Winter 2016

From Everyone Orchestra

“Everyone Orchestra is happy to announce the addition of a handful of winter shows after they return from Jam Cruise. They will play in Beaver Creek, Colorado at Vilar performing Arts Center on Thursday, January 14th and then head over to Denver for a two night stand at Cervantes for the venue’s 14th Year Anniversary Party on January 15-16th. Early March has EO returning to the midwest with shows at The Ark in Ann Arbor (3/2), Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo (3/3), 1st Ward at the Chop Shop in Chicago (3/4), the Majestic Theatre in Madison (3/5), and The Cabooze in Minneapolis (3/6). Stay tuned for artist announcements for the Winter shows!

EO is also is excited about their two night run at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco, Co on Fri-Sat, December 18-19, 2015 to help the venue celebrate its 3rd Anniversary and have announced the additions of Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds – guitar) for both nights, Chuck Morris (Lotus – percussion) and Amanda Renee for Friday, as well as Scott Stoughton (Bonfire Dub) on Saturday.

Conducted by Matt Butler, and already set to perform at the Barkley are Al Schnier (moe. – guitar, vacals), Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident – percussion/drums), Bridget Law (Elephant Revival – fiddle), Jay Starling (Love Canon – dobro), Sage Cook (we dream dawn – guitar, vocals), Adrian Engfer (The Grant Farm – bass). The Grant Farm opens the show!

Having marched clearly into uncharted territory, Everyone Orchestra is an avant-garde conceptual and collaborative performance which deeply encourages and requires audience interaction. Both the band and the audience start the show with a clean slate to help co-create a dynamic musical experience, with Butler receiving ideas from the audience to help set the course of action.

Butler’s unique style of conducting is groundbreaking in that he, as EO’s founder, has essentially created an entirely new way to perform and experience music. Butler says, “Playing with different musicians, improvising every night, and getting the crowd involved in ways that they can’t be at a regular show has provided an unparalleled live music experience.””

1/6-11 Wed-Mon – Jam Cruise*
