Hailing from Tres Cantos in Madrid, Spain, alternative rock outfit Vetusta Morla formed in the summer of 1998. The band achieved success quickly, recording its first award-winning demo in early 2000 and making it to the finals of Moratalaz's Rock Contest in 2001. After several lineup changes and additional demos, the band completed its first EP, Mira ("Look"), at Heatroom Studios in Madrid in 2005. Vetusta Morla has never been one to adhere to convention, and this disc represents an intriguing next step in the evolution of this chart-topping band.

The happy result is that, in less than two years, these successes have created a formidable draw for Porter as an international touring artist.

Megafaun
With William Tyler
Tickets $15.00 ADV, $17 DOS
Concert starts @ 7:00PM / Doors open @ 6:00PM
Full dinner menu available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min per person at tables / All ages

The trail discovered by 2008's Bury The Square, blazed by 2009's Gather, Form & Fly, and tended by 2010's Heretofore has run into a wide and rushing river. The band we know as Megafaun, born alongside Bon Iver in the ashes that rose from DeYarmond Edison (Brad Cook, Joe Westerlund, and Phil Cook's former band with Justin Vernon), has woven years of writing, touring, and living into a new sonic language. Critically praised and publicly loved for its ability to speak in the many tongues of American musical history – all while blending it with its own energetic and personal form of rock – Megafaun has staked a claim. But the lay of that land the band calls its own – the hills, valleys, and caves beneath – is just revealing itself in the sunrise. This is the band we know, but in a new light. This is Megafaun.

Full Dinner Menu Available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min per person at tables / All ages

Growing up as the son of Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons from the legendary Run-DMC, Daniel "Diggy" Simmons is proud to be a Simmons, but he wants to be known as Diggy, the fashion and shoe designer, trendsetter, and rapper in his own right. The charming middle son on MTV's Run's House who grew up with America watching, he now has members of the hip-hop community on the edge of their seats, anticipating what's to come from what many are calling "the next hottest thing." After inking a deal with Atlantic Records on his 15th birthday in March 2010, Diggy garnered some serious attention with "Just the Beginning," his sharp, ambitious take on Drake's "Over." His next effort, "Flow Stoopid," a freestyle track over Nas's "Made You Look," received instant co-signs from rap giants ranging from Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West to Common and Talib Kweli, becoming an instant viral sensation.

With the release of her first chart-topping single "Down on My Knees" in 2006, Ayo's fresh and powerful melody instantly won over the heart of the public. Born in Germany with Nigerian origins, Joy Olasumibo Ogunmakin was musically reborn in France, gaining instant fame as Ayo. While happily combining mixed legacies, with musical influences such as Bob Marley and Donny Hathaway, she was immediately spotted as a one-of-a-kind artist in the 21st century. After a brief stint in a girl band, she moved to Hamburg in 2000, where she recorded the first version of "Down on My Knees" using a cupboard as a sound studio. During the recording, she prophesied to her friend that the song would appear on her debut album.

Tickets $15.00
Concert starts @ 11:00PM / Doors open @ 10:30PM
General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min. per person at tables / All ages

British producer Ott got his start working as an engineer in several studios around North London. Working obsessively, 18 hours a day, seven days a week for almost 10 years, he began developing the skills that would eventually allow him to work with artists who inspired his foray into music in the first place – Brian Eno, The Orb, Youth, African Head Charge, Steve Hillage, and On-U-Sound. Buoyed by the success of this initial release, the following year Ott gathered together and released his earlier sonic experiments as the album Blumenkraft (2003), which was also very well received and attracted a great many listeners around the world.

Concert starts @ 7:00PM / Doors open @ 6:00PM
Full dinner menu available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min. per person at tables / All ages

As an artist who embraces everything from Stevie Wonder to Steely Dan and seemingly everything in between, Dave Barnes creates music marked by both depth and groove – songs that are both thought-provoking and dance-inspiring. Dave Barnes had landed songs on television and in films and was well known to thousands who'd discovered his soulful, supple way with a melody, wrapping itself around a lyric that sneakily burrows under the skin. Although Barnes is currently preparing to release his hotly-anticipated next album Stories to Tell (due out March 13th), it might surprise listeners to know that he never made a conscious decision to arrive where he is today.

Tickets $25.00
Concert starts @ 8:00PM / Doors open @ 6:00PM
Full dinner menu available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available / First come, first seated / $10 min. per person at tables / All ages

Growing up as the eldest son of actor Clint Eastwood, Kyle Eastwood enjoyed a childhood that had jazz as its soundtrack. Although he initially studied film, he soon realized that jazz was his true passion. After years of paying his dues gigging around Los Angeles and New York, he released his debut album, From Here To There, on Sony in 1998. He didn't give up on film, however, and demonstrated his prowess as a composer with a contribution to the score for the Academy Award-winning film Mystic River (2003).

Eastwood's next record, Metropolitan, was released in the US in June 2009. Co-produced by Erin Davis (son of Miles) and Eastwood's longtime writing partner Michael Stevens, the album captured the attention of the jazz world with its forward-thinking style and the gathering of some of the cream of today's jazz musicians. Last fall, Eastwood celebrated the release of his latest album, Songs from the Chateau (2011), at the Blue Note jazz club. Conceived in the fabulous 15th-century Château Couronneau in Ligueux, France, the album features an all-star band that includes Martyn Kaine (drums), Andrew McCormack (piano and keyboards), Graeme Flowers (trumpet and flugelhorn), and Graeme Blevins (soprano saxophone). With production by Crofton Orr and sound engineering by Simone Griva, the album may well be Eastwood's best release to date.
