TRACY BONHAM / THE OLD CEREMONY

Saturday, March 13 at 7:00 PM

A native of Eugene, Oregon, Bonham began singing at age 5, playing the violin at 9, and piano at age 14. After attending The University of Southern California in violin performance and studying jazz vocals at Berklee College of Music, she started her own band and began writing songs. She proved to be a quick study; Her 1996 major label debut, The Burdens of Being Upright (Island), went gold, spawning the hit single "Mother Mother", and lead to a pair of Grammy nominations for Best Female Vocalist and Best Alternative Rock Performance. Bonham has released two subsequent LP records with two EPs and has toured the world many times. She has appeared on TV shows such as The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Late Late with Craig Fergusson, among others. Tracy has also appeared as guest vocalist / violinist with artists such as Blue Man Group, Juliana Hatfield, Ron Sexsmith, Aerosmith, Wayfaring Strangers, Latin Playboys, NoBlues from the Netherlands, Soulwax from Belgium, Mark Oliver Everet of The Eels, and Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin.

Her newest release, on deck for spring 2010, is called Masts of Manhattan. This record is self produced, mixed by Tchad Blake (Tom Waits, Los Lobos, Lisa Germano) and features Brooklyn artist Smokey's Roundup (www.Smokeyhormel.com) as her backing band. It has a raw energy with a melodic and harmonic richness that surpasses anything she's ever done before. Her lyrics are as witty as ever, while achieving an honesty that's not unfamiliar to Bonham's previous works.

The Old Ceremony draws their water from a deep well of music ranging from the Beatles to Beck, Leadbelly to Led Zeppelin. Unorthodox instrumentation meets superb songwriting, to create a unique interpretation of rock'n'roll.

After three highly acclaimed albums and four years of touring, the Chapel Hill, NC band has built a large and loyal following. Their live show is an incendiary experience that leaves concertgoers with a smile on their faces and a renowned belief in the power of rock music. TOC has performed with CAKE, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Chuck Berry, Polyphonic Spree, Mountain Goats, and Avett Brothers, and was included in PASTE Magazine's "Top 100 Albums of 2006."

TOC is fronted by songwriter/raconteur Django Haskins, and includes bassist Matt Brandau, drummer Dan Hall, vibes/organist Mark Simonsen, and violinist/keyboardist Gabriele Pelli.

"They run smoke rings around a midnight train pulling in its wake murder ballads, bad seeds, and maudlin cafes." - Independent Weekly

"Fantcha, a talented...Cape Verdean beauty based in New York City, is a musical ambassador from the African archipelago nation of Cape Verde." - Afropop Worldwide

"Fantcha pulls no stops in her long-awaited return. The Cape Verdean songstress called upon a cast of All-Star musicians to help craft her pensive and passionate, tender and funky album Amor, Mar e Musica, whose styles are as varied as the cultures in her archipelago nation." John Oseid, Conde Nast Traveler

A charismatic performer, Fantcha, developed her own, unique musical style with African, Cuban and Portuguese inflections. The mornas and coladeiras she sings are the soulful, blues-like songs, like the fado of Portugal, that are about lost love and the trials of life. Her rich, sensuous voice lends itself beautifully to love songs and danceable tunes alike and, has audiences listening raptly or on their feet dancing.
