Nathan Morgan Band

9:30 PM // Never a cover

Nathan Morgan began playing guitar at the age of 11 after receiving his first acoustic guitar for Christmas one year. Nathan was then immediately put to work at guitar lessons learning the basics of the instrument he would come to love. Nathan stumbled upon his father’s vinyl collection of old CCR, Lynryd Skynyrd, and ZZ Top records at about 13 and was immediately hypnotized by the sounds he heard. Nathan soon found himself staying up hours at a time to learn every Lynyrd Skynyrd song he could by picking it out, note by note. By age 15, Nathan was already playing in local clubs and bars that thrived upon the Southern Rock sound. It was then at age 16 that Nathan stumbled across a biography on Stevie Ray Vaughan being broadcast on VH1. This was the moment that Nathan credits as his first look at the blues. From that day until now, Nathan has continued to develop his playing style in the form of his heroes, including Stevie Ray, Johnny Winter, Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, and Freddie King. Nathan has stated where the passion in his playing comes from; “The bulk of my playing style is derived from that classic Texas blues sound from guys like Stevie, Johny Winter, and Freddie King, and I also always try to include a riff or two from the Skynyrd boys in there as well.”

 

The Crazy Bull

An Evening with Amanda Daughtry

$8 PM // $5

It doesn’t get more country than a 7 year old little girl hearing Randy Travis’ “Diggin’ Up Bones” on the radio and finding herself in Nashville with a tidal wave of a career poised to hit the shore sooner than later.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Amanda Daughtry.

Originally hailing from Johnston County, North Carolina, Amanda has spent the past few years solidifying her status as a must-see performer in all areas of the state that built her into the woman she is today. Her roots can be seen through the lens of her family musical influence, which can be traced back to her grandmother, who led the 1st soprano section of the church choir. Eventually, once she was old enough to drive, Amanda was able to go off and sing as a part of many theatre and country variety shows in the area. Eventually, she put together a full band of her own and spent a number of years booking and managing the outfit herself as they traveled.

Banny Grove, Tim Kaiser, Material World.

9 PM // $5
Banny Grove is a mystery, a miracle, and a sensation. Who is She? The alterego of Louise Chicoine, leader of the MA psych cult RABBIT RABBIT, in the roaming studio of GRAPE ROOM (aka Peter Nichols), the underground pop mastermind known for his homespun method of “reverse-engineering pop gold for the alternative sects.” (Sjimon Gompers, IMPOSE) Banny Grove is a hero, done up in the purple wig and platform shoes of a comic book glam icon, pouring untold optimism and love for humankind into her microphone.

Tim Kaiser is well known in the atmospheric experimental music scene for his blending of acousto-electric contraptions and Frankenstein electronics to create ethereal, layered drones. His sonic landscapes have been called “experiments in adventurous art” and “eclectic genius” by the likes of Make Magazine, Wired, the New Art Examiner and the Associated Press. Mr. Kaiser was featured on the PBS program MakeTV and has headlined numerous experimental music festivals in the US.

Bobby Rush

8 PM // $20- $30

Naming your album after a song entitled “Porcupine Meat” may seem a little unusual unless you’re Bobby Rush, who earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit entitled “Chicken Heads.” He elaborates on his recent composition: “If a lady won’t treat me right, but she doesn’t want anyone else to have me, that is hard to digest.” Hence the lyric, “too fat to eat, too lean to throw away.” Porcupine Meat is Rush’s debut release for Rounder Records, and one of the best recordings of his astonishing 60-plus year career.

Rush estimates that he has cut over 300 songs since he first began making music. He has been honored with three Grammy nominations, as well as 41 nominations and 10 awards from the Blues Foundation, and a 2006 induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.

Josh Johannson

9:30 PM // Never a cover

Josh Johansson is a soulful solo artist from Savannah, GA. He got his start playing a weekly show at what used to be Retro on Congress, in downtown Savannah. For a couple years, Josh was the co-frontman of the Savannah rock band 2ToneFish. After the band parted ways, Josh started focusing on his solo career, writing more songs and traveling. Since making that career move, Josh has played as far south as Key West, Florida (with his former band mate Jason Lamson) and he has played throughout north Georgia and South Carolina. Josh will admit the biggest moment in his career, thus far, was making it to the last round of Hollywood Week on Season XV of American Idol. In Hollywood, Josh learned how much he loved playing music and how every show matters, whether it’s a nearly empty bar or the Dolby Theatre.

The Bama Gamblers

10 PM // $5

The Bama Gamblers, a 4-piece rock n’ roll outfit from Auburn, Alabama, realized their potential and on-stage chemistry almost immediately upon forming in 2010.

The band has continued to travel, grow, and make new fans all over the Southeast, gaining more momentum with each performance. To date, they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with similar acts such as Moon Taxi, Shooter Jennings, Whiskey Myers, American Aquarium, The Dirty Guv’nahs, North Mississippi All-Stars, Bart Crow, Benjy Davis Project, Casey Donahew Band, Johnathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, and The Vegabonds.

Southern Culture On The Skids

8 PM // $25-440 (VIP)

Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since since they formed in Chapel Hill, NC in 1983. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. It’s a musical gumbo Miller calls, “Americana from the wrong side of the tracks.” The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls “a hell raising rock and roll party.”
In 2014 the band was honored by the Southern Folk Life Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibition featuring their music and cultural contributions. The flame-adorned La-Z-Boy from the cover of their Plastic Seat Sweat LP now resides at UNC-CH!
