TONIGHT: JAY LINGO WITH SPECIAL GUEST THE DELTA CITY RAMBLERS

Jay Lingo writes Americana music from the heart. All of the necessary components required to write good country music, llike heartache, addiction, lust, love, dogs, broken down vehicles, trains, guns, more broken down vehicles, women, depression, desperation, bad luck, good luck, Jesus, the Devil, more drugs, are all right here. Jay’s been fortunate enough to share the stage with names like Dave Alvin, The Knitters, Jim Lewin (Great American Taxi), Larry Hosford, Mike and The Moonpies, Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles, Bob Mosely, The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers, Brennan Leigh, etc, and so on!

TONIGHT: BLEEDIN’ HEARTS

The Bleedin’ Hearts are a high octane, honky tonk combo that perform spirited renditions of vintage honky tonk classics that have long been gone, but certainly not forgotten.

From drinking songs to honky tonk upstarts, the Bleedin’ Hearts will have you crying’ in your beer and twirling on the dance floor. Although, not necessarily in that order.

OOh, don’t be intimidated by that Q in the name..  Orquesta Dharma is a bunch of NoCal guys that just happen to have a Latin Jazz bump that’ll blow your pants off.  Yea.  No, let’s hope not.  But..  they do have an album, Road Warrior, that has been called  “Este es sin duda uno de los mejores albumes de Jazz Latino en lo que va corrido del siglo XXI.”  Translated for the rest of us means, “This is undoubtedly one of the best albums Latin Jazz as far this century”.  Strap on your pants, and get in here tonight.

TONIGHT: BUSTER BLUE

It’s been said that everything musical has been done before, but Buster Blue has found a place inhabited only by their own off-kilter creation.
The five members utilize an arsenal of instruments that include horns, banjo, accordion, chains, and a well-placed bucket.
Buster Blue brings more than music to the stage.
Consummate performers, they bring theatrics to their live sets that meld seamlessly to the emotional arc of each of their songs.
At times a raucous bar band and at other times a bit musical theater.
