Wed, Feb 12, 8pm
$26 adv, $30 door
"You don't fnd stylists today like you did in the Ernest Tubb era. That's what sets Junior aside from a lot of other artists. He's got his own style. And his rapport with his fans, he draws a vast audience, from young college kids up to the older, traditional country music fans."
~David McCormick, owner, Ernest Tubb Record Shop, Nashville

"Junior told me once that he was very impressed by Jimi Hendrix, by the way he was very wild, and yet he was very controlled. He knew where everything was going in a solo, and he (Junior), I think tries for the same effect, and I think he hits it virtually every time."
~Mitch Mitchell, drummer, The Jimi Hendrix Experience

After surviving the destruction of her home and business by hurricane Katrina, she did After the Rain in 2006, which again earned her critical acclaim and won her a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. Currently celebrating her 50th Anniversary, she has recently received an Offbeat Award, A Blues Music Award, Big Easy Award, and The Mo Jo Magazine of London England Legends Award and was chosen by NPR listeners and panel as "One Of The 50 Greatest Voices of All Time."

ANE BRUN w/ special guest Linnea Olsson
(Songs & Rarities: Solo Acoustic Tour. Norwegian singer-songwriter) Wed, Feb 19, 8pm
$24 adv, $29 door
Ane Brun's 'Don't Leave' steals the spotlight in a somber Chevy Super Bowl ad.
The recording of Ane Brun's new album, It All Starts With One would have been underway as early as 2010, were it not for Peter Gabriel and Ani DiFranco inviting Ane on tour. Much to the frustration of her fast-growing fan base, accumulated over the previous three studio album and periods of hard touring, Ane Brun's own album had to wait. This, however, turned out to be an advantageous move with that year spent on the world tour giving Ane time to write additional songs and allowing for further work on those that already existed. During those magical recording days in Stockholm last spring, no one in the artist's inner circle had any doubt that the time was right, everything just fell into place. Read more here.

Just four years ago, McLaughlin's Island Records debut propelled his song "Beautiful Disaster" up the charts, with "Beating My Heart" following quickly after.

McLaughlin himself was offered a role in the hit film Enchanted, performing a song that was later nominated for an Academy Award. In 2008, he found himself onstage at the Oscars reprising the tune in front of 32 million US viewers. In between the hit songs and television appearances, true to his hardworking Midwestern roots, McLaughlin spent his nights opening for the likes of Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, recording with Jason Mraz and writing for other artists.

ICONS OF FUNK feat. Leo Nocentelli, Bernie Worrell, Bill "The Buddha" Dickens & Adrian Harpham

Leo Nocentelli was one of the original members of the Meters, a groundbreaking funk group based in New Orleans from the mid-'60s to the mid-'70s. The band, playing mostly instrumentals, stayed at the forefront of the music scene in the Big Easy and achieved a good measure of national attention with Nocentelli penning songs and contributing guitar work. He has since gone out on his own developing his style with varied elements that span blues, rock, rap, jazz, and funk, but he considers himself a funk musician, first and foremost. He and his band have performed from coast to coast across the U.S., including an appearance at New Orleans' Jazz & Heritage Festival. He has penned more than 200 songs, some of which were recorded by Robert Palmer, Etta James, the Neville Brothers, ZZ Hill and George Duke.

Bernie Worrell first came to prominence as a founding member and Musical Director of Parliament/Funkadelic. While this massively influential supergroup was radically altering the course of music, Bernie was radically charting the course of emerging keyboard technology during the golden age of analog synthesis. Among the key ingredients in his sonic stew were perfect pitch and a well-honed facility with the classical canon. Upon leaving the Conservatory, Worrell served for several years as Musical Director for Maxine Brown before joining George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic. From fanciful forays on clavinet which leaped without warning from guttural gulps to squiggly squeals to liquid Minimoog bass lines which herded listeners to the dance floor, it all represented new musical language. All the while, his rapid advancements of the synthesizer's potential were actually traceable to his classical foundation. Read more here.
