 Songs that capture the endless light of love, the beauty and heartache of motherhood and the fleeting nature of time…

rhythms that rock the baby to sleep and get everyone else on their feet..solos that soar and vocals that always

Happy Hour with Drink Specials, Free Munchies and Live Music featuring legendary musician

BABY GRAMPS


Writer Patrick Ferris said he has "a mass appeal in the sense that any audience

between the age of 2 and 102 are captivated by his vaudeville antics, hilarious lyrics and animated guitar playing...

His voice is a cross between Popeye the Sailor and a Didgeridoo

and the plinkity plink of his VERY worn National steel guitar, sounds like a wind up jack in the box.

If you listen closely and know anything about music, you'll realize Gramps is an absolutely incredible guitar player.

Being a professional musician for over 40 years can't help but give you some sort of chops,

but Gramps is a modern day Robert Johnson; a revolutionary guitarist that,

like Thelonious Monk on piano, can play the notes 'between the cracks.”

BRENNEN LEIGH & NOEL MCKAY


Here's what the Chicago Tribune wrote about their latest CD, Before theWorld Was Made.

"It is a witty, heartfelt record of dusty barroom shuffles, sassy two-steps and ethereal country-folk.

It's informed by the vintage duets of George Jones and Melba Montgomery,

as well as the more modern pairing of John Prine and Iris DeMent."

www.noelandbrennen.com

And then at 9:30pm….

LA-based alt-country/Americana band

THE FAR WEST


"Singer-guitarist Lee Briante has a certain John Prine-ian rasp to his voice,

and he's got some of Prine's cut-to-the-bone lyrical wit. When they rev up, T

he Far West recall any number of the '70s cosmic cowboy rockers, but when they break down,

well that's the real good stuff" LA Weekly www.thefarwestband.com

DINOSAUR TRUCKERS


Since forming in 2006, the Dinosaur Truckers have toured extensively all over Europe

and gained the reputation of a "can't miss" live band,

creating a steamy atmosphere and the leaving the audience dripping with sweat

begging for more at their shows, whether they play at a

break neck speed or temporarily slow it down for the occasional somber ballad.

Instead they offer their fans pure, uncut, unadulterated music-potent and dangerous and not for the faint of heart.

Although rooted deep in American music, the Dinosaur truckers certainly aren't just another

folk act.  This four piece band merges a wide range of styles, from fast-paced bluegrass

to country, punk, rockabilly with a dose of

mariachi thrown in at times. They display a tremendous breadth of sound

and influences and consistently deliver  with an unparalleled energy.
