Derek Knott

Wednesday, 9/24
6:30-8:30 pm

Modern Folk
website: http://www.derekknott.com

Bio: “Lyrical depth and maturity tinged with the melodic hues of early 60s rock. The ballads have a brooding intensity.” -Dean O’Brien Host of “The Vinyl Departure” WVBR 93.5 FM Ithaca, NY.

“Solo artist Derek Knott’s songs are like little prayers- little secular prayers. That’s not to say there isn’t plenty of soul and spirituality in his acoustically rooted music. Even the laid back tunes smile warmly and swing sweetly.” – Rochester’s City Newspaper

Rock
website: www.reverbnation.com/thislife2011
audio: www.soundcloud.com/thislifemusic

Bio: This Life starts with Ryan Johnson and Miles George meeting in the fall of 2007, while attending Finger Lakes Community College. Right from the get-go, their musical tastes and styles became immediately entangled together, in which they began writing music together. Once their friendship and musical ideas grew, they decided to start writing an EP. Throughout the past 2 years they had figured out exactly what they wanted as far as their sound and the tracks that would make it to the album.

After the EP was completed, Ryan and Miles played acoustically under the name RJ and Cu-Cu (derived from the name of Miles’ solo effort) at various open mic nights. As time passed, they began the search for a full group. In late 2013, Scott Dupray on bass and Aaron Davis on drums joined the two to re-form and re-name the band This Life. Currently the band is gigging, writing, and recording on a regular basis throughout the Western NY area, and are continuing to do so today. Check them out!

Spacelords

Rock

website: http://spacelordsmusic.com/

audio: http://spacelordsmusic.com/music/

calendar-spacelords

Bio: Armed with an arsenal of killer original Spacelords are a sonic force on the rise. Hailing from Rochester, NY the Spacelords are comprised of front man Dave Mabelis (guitar/vocals), Jordan Carpenter (guitar), Bob Regan (bass), and “The Luxurious” Steve Cavatassi (drums).

Soundly grounded by robust bass and hard-hit drums, Spacelords’ music brings back something that’s been missed. It fills a niche, a hole noticed by those who loved the blues-influenced sound of rock and roll when it was new and dangerous, before disco, before each new outfit played to fit its own dim little pigeonhole. Guitars with strong funk undertones are sometimes unrepentant, sometimes plangent, but equally capable of splitting oak and provoking emotion; they accompany energetic vocals inspired by the sound of classic soul. By 2011, every new group smacks itself with adjectives: lo-fi, black metal; alternative-, indie-, or modern-rock. Revivalists Spacelords make the classic contemporary, playing Rock the way it used to be.

Steve Grills and the Roadmasters

Thursday, 10/16
6-8 pm
no cover

Blues

website: http://www.stevegrills.com/

Bio: For Steve Grills, the Blues has been a life long journey. As a youngster, he heard the music of Big Bill Broonzy, Leadbelly and Lightnin’ Hopkins from his father’s record collection. Through the Beatles, Steve discovered Chuck Berry and he has not looked back since. He has searched out the roots of Rock and Roll, uncovering many great artists who have influenced and inspired him. Primarily among these are Robert Lockwood Jr., Earl Hooker, Freddie King and Albert Collins. Steve became friends with Robert Lockwood Jr after meeting him in 1978. In 1992, Robert invited Steve and his band to perform at his Legendary Blues Festival near Cleveland , Ohio. Steve later recorded with Robert on Shakin Smith’s cd Harmonica Wizard.

Steve and his band the Roadmasters ( named after Earl Hooker’s band) draw their repetoire from these and other artists, allowing contemporary audiences the opportunity to discover the vitality of the music of these legendary and influential musicians.

Steve has released a cd of recordings he did with pianist Ernest Lane entitled After Hours on the Toogaloo label. Steve is very excited to have had the opportunity to record with Ernest. Ernest’s musical career reaches back to the late 1940’s when he played and recorded with the engimatic delta blues guitarist Robert Nighthawk. Ernest backed Nighthawk on his Aristocrat (later Chess) recordings Black Angel Blues (Sweet Black Angel) and Annie Lee Blues. Blues scholars consider these recordings with Nighthawk to be among the greatest Post war Chicago blues records ever made.

Violet Mary

Friday, 10/17
9:30-11:30 pm
$3 cover

Rock/Modern/Alternative

website: http://www.violetmary.com/

Bio:
“What happens After the Plunge?” Violet Mary answers with Level, its third studio album, released on April 23, 2013. The self-produced album is an honest, dynamic, and hard-hitting collection of nine songs that take the listener on a journey from a challenge to victory to peace. Level is about movement—both the uncertain movement of trying to find one’s footing in a difficult situation, and then the righting of the ship, leveling out and charting a steady course.

Tracked over six months at Belly of the Whale Studios in Farmington, New York, Level pushes new boundaries for Violet Mary in both production and performance. The album is an aural depiction of the band’s growth over the past year and a half, exploring new aspects of songwriting, arrangement, and vocal harmonies, and experimenting with more elaborate orchestration.

Since forming in 2007, Violet Mary has released two albums (2008’s Marionette and 2010’s After the Plunge) and played live at dozens of venues across Western New York. Highlights include the Rochester Lilac Festival and Party in the Park, the Fairport Music and Food Festival, the Utica Music and Arts Festival, and the New York State Fair. In the fall of 2011, Violet Mary was selected from over 130 regional entries to be part of WXXI’s third season of OnStage, which aired on February 26, 2012.

Looking ahead at 2013, a DVD release of that OnStage performance is planned, and the band is looking forward to continuing its regular appearances at Rochester-area venues, as well as increasing appearances at new locations in Syracuse, Buffalo, and throughout the Northeast.

The Creek Monster

Since then, he has delighted fans by appearing at random shows where he rallies the crowd and passes out beads, frizbees, shirts and other gifts. He is loved by kids despite his scarry appearance.
