Tonight… Lew Fratis

Tonight our friend Lew Fratis comes in to soothe the pain of a hotter than @#&! Tuesday evening…  Get up, switch OFF your overworked A/C and flee for the smooth air conditioned sounds of the Torch Club.

TONIGHT– MARIUS

The music of Marius can best be described as singer/songwriter venturing into different parts of the rock genre. Acoustic and intimate, the concept of experimenting with different combinations of acoustic instruments, gives Marius an exciting platform where songwriting truly flourishes.

TONIGHT– MERLE JAGGER

Merle Jagger plays a muso antioxidant of progressive expressionism featuring guitar and drum hero performances stylistically influenced by Honky Tonk, Classic Country and Rock, Boogie Blues and a mix of amped up Bluegrass. Bright tempos and upbeat melodies fuel Merle Jagger’s clever instrumental compositions as well as their vocal driven Country and Swing drinkin’ tunes.

FEATURED TONIGHT: THE STRANGE

Never letting the classic rock sensibilities out of sight, The Strange has made their niche by harnessing a vintage rock sound and intertwining it with progressive and Indy rock vibes and styles.  The result is what makes us love rock music today.  Slick guitar riffs, powerhouse drums and base, and haunting and truthful lyrics that will register at your core…

TONIGHT: BIG IRON

These guys are well listed under the heading Not New Country, and you see why when you come in for a full night of twang bangin’, pedal steel cryin’ ,’ and 4/4 shuffle thumpin’.

Go here and take a listen:  http://mutant-media.com/  then roll by tonight.

 

FEATURED TONIGHT: GRANT FARM

Grant Farm is a refreshing harvest of a band from the fertile Front Range of Colorado. This much-anticipated four-piece represents the fruition of the efforts of National Flatpicking Champion Tyler Grant, one of the hottest and best-known guitar players on the scene today. In Grant Farm he is partnered with dynamic drummer Chris Misner, also of the Drew Emmitt Band and Bill Nershi’s Blue Planet. The quartet is completed by funky phenom Adrian “Ace” Engfer on bass and the prodigious Sean Foley on keyboards. Grant Farm has established a movement based on their connection to roots music of all kinds, devotion to their fans and family, and their brilliant performances of Rocky Mountain Rock and Roll.

Mr. December Band tonight!

Hey, it’s Saturday night and you don’t want to make the wrong choice of a place to go for music. Mr. December takes the Torch Club by storm tonight, which makes it the ONLY right choice. If you haven’t heard this band lately, you’ve been missing some great new originals and some covers that few bands even attempt. If you have heard them, then you know already. This band does not fit neatly into a box. They stretch in so many directions, you won’t even know which way to look. You like rock? Blues? a little jazz fusion? Funk? Whateva? yeah they’ve got that. So. Be. Here. Tonight. And don’t forget to bring your friends and tip your bartender!

FEATURED TONIGHT: THE COFFIS BROTHERS

The Coffis Brothers play a well-honed list of original rock and blues
tunes that center on honest lyrics and neatly constructed verses and
hooks in the tradition of Tom Petty and Neil Young. Throw in guitar
solos and a number of softer songs and it becomes harder to find
something you can’t like about theses guys.   See the guys here then roll by and check em out.

FEATURED 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.
