Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Celebrating over 40 years since their founding in 1977, New Orleans-based Dirty Dozen Brass Band has taken the traditional foundation of brass band music and incorporated it into a blend of genres including Bebop Jazz, Funk and R&B/Soul.

This unique sound, described by the band as a ‘musical gumbo,’ has allowed the Dirty Dozen to tour across 5 continents and more than 30 countries, record 12 studio albums and collaborate with a range of artists from Modest Mouse to Widespread Panic to Norah Jones. Forty-plus years later, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous music machine whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances.

In 1977, The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans began showcasing a traditional Crescent City brass band. It was a joining of two proud, but antiquated, traditions at the time: social and pleasure clubs dated back over a century to a time when black southerners could rarely afford life insurance, and the clubs would provide proper funeral arrangements. Brass bands, early predecessors of Jazz as we know it, would often follow the funeral procession playing somber dirges, then once the family of the deceased was out of earshot, burst into jubilant dance tunes as casual onlookers danced in the streets. By the late ’70s, few of either existed. The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club decided to assemble this group as a house band, and over the course of these early gigs, the seven-member ensemble adopted the venue’s name: The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Cha Wa

From the funk-laced beats and bass-heavy sousaphone blasts that kick off their album Spyboy to the gritty warmth of singer J’Wan Boudreaux’s voice, New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit, Cha Wa radiates the fiery energy of the best features of the city’s street culture.

Dating back to the late 1800s, the Mardi Gras Indian tradition began when African-American men first marched in Native American dress through the streets of New Orleans on Mardi Gras day. The tradition, which includes a host of songs shared among the various tribes, has been kept alive for over a century and today is as vital as ever. Mardi Gras Indians have influenced the biggest names in New Orleans music: The Meters, Dr. John, the Marsalis family, the Neville Brothers, Trombone Shorty and others. The most prominent Mardi Gras Indian today is Monk Boudreaux and his grandson J’Wan Boudreaux, who is stepping up with Cha Wa to propel their culture forward.

Rickie Lee Jones MWB Music Without Borders Venue Booking

Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. A cultural phenomenon, Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance. Rickie is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as ‘confessional’ songwriter performances.

Her latest album The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennesse Williams. Produced by John Porter (of Roxy Music) and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.

“This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with,” says Rickie. “I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known in on the west coast…. Here is another record then, made of my imagination, and whatever else that has no words, using the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my heart, that I alone can understand, and hopefully that others can enjoy.”

Even if people have no idea what the history is, it's automatically infectious," they explain.

High Kings MWB music without borders

The High Kings are charting a new course for Irish ballad music - equal parts rousing and reflective, energetic and insightful.

Ten years ago, four Irish singers, performers and songwriters decided to take a calculated risk. The heyday of ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners was a distant memory for generations of music fans, and they knew that they would have to boldly go where no other Irish ballad group had gone before.

"People were looking for guys with character & presence - not just cardboard cut-outs," says band member Darren Holden. "We knew within the space of a few songs that there was magic," and audiences agreed. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2008, reached number two on Billboard Magazine's World Music chart.

2017's "Decade-Best of the High Kings" CD & current Decade World Tour are a joyous trip down Memory Lane, to the music and song of yesteryear, this time performed in a contemporary style and arrangement which still remains true to the original. Here's to the next ten years . . . Here's to The High Kings .

James Maddock MWB Music Without Borders

James Maddock has built his acclaimed legacy on conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way. In his latest album, The Green, he’s recorded the most eclectic, ­exhilaratingly soulful, and imaginatively produced album in his career. “This is my best album. It’s an upbeat record with really strong songs and a lot of surprises,” the British transplant reveals.

Since 1999, James Maddock’s boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct Folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and taste-making outlets like NPR, American SongwriterRelix magazine, and CMT EdgeRelix notes, “James Maddock possesses the kind of lived-in, craggy voice that would sound authoritative if he were singing the sports pages. Fortunately, he doesn’t need to do that because his compositional skills are a match for his delivery.”

His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase He’s performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), appeared on an album with Susan McKeown, and built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast U.S. to Europe to Australia.

Previous to his solo career, James Maddock was the front man for the Columbia Records band Wood where he was first introduced to a mainstream audience. The group’s debut album, Songs From Stamford Hill, was prominently featured in the hit television series Dawson’s Creek. In 2003, James Maddock relocated from England to New York, and, soon after, launched his solo career. His 2009 solo album Sunrise On Avenue C won a New York Music Award for “Best Americana Album,” while its follow-up, Wake Up And Dream, ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV’s (NYC) Listener Poll.

The Green truly captures NPR’s accolade that “his timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and lovely intimacy.”

James Maddock is taking selections from The Green, as well as fan favorites from his back catalog, on the road. “I love how songs reveal themselves differently in the live setting,” James says. “I’m grateful I have such a large body of work and an audience to share a creative dialogue with. It’s all a luxury and just a really beautiful thing—I feel very lucky.”

Friday, March 1, 2019 at 8PM at Emelin Theatre

The Earls of Leicester MWB Music Without Borders

When the Earls of Leicester formed in 2013, their mission was ambitious but exact: to preserve and promote the legacy of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, in hopes of reviving the duo’s music for long-time admirers and introducing a new generation to their genre-defining sound. Within a year of releasing their self-titled debut, the Nashville-based six-piece far surpassed their own expectations, winning a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and earning six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Now, with their first live album, Earls of Leicester offer up a selection of songs that fully capture the pure joy and supreme musicianship that propel their every performance.

For Jerry Douglas — a 14-time Grammy Award-winner who founded the Earls of Leicester and produces all their material the most rewarding aspect of Earls of Leicester lies in playing for a live audience and witnessing their reaction firsthand. “One of the biggest payoffs for me is playing this music for young people, and watching them fall in love with it,” he says. “And even better than that is having the older folks come up to me and tell me, ‘I never thought I’d get to hear that music again.’ That’s when I know when we’ve really done our job.”

“This music conjures up my childhood—it drops me off into a kinder, gentler place, and I think it should do that for everybody,” says Douglas. “When people come to see us, we want them to forget about the outside world and all the stress or strife that goes along with it, and hopefully hold onto that feeling for a while even after the show’s over.”

Barry Bales (bass, vocals) – Shawn Camp (guitar, lead vocals) – Charlie Cushman (banjo, guitars) – Jerry Douglas (Dobro, vocals) – Johnny Warren (fiddle, bass vocals) – Jeff White (mandolin, vocals)

Accolades:

"Holy Moly...people need to hear this music again, and The Earls of Leicester deliver it!" -- Tommy Emmanuel

"The Earls have taken this music, deconstructing the essence of the melody and the lyric, and reassembling it for a new generation of listeners. The result is music that sounds as vital as any kind of popular music being made today." -- NPR Fresh Air

"Once again, the Earls of Leicester do Flatt & Scruggs justice in a consistently entertaining way." -- Wall Street Journal


"It takes a certain amount of credibility - not to mention just pure chutzpah - to assemble a band with the sole intent to emulate one of the greatest bluegrass groups of all times, specifically, the archetypical ensemble helmed by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs that was known as the Foggy Mountain Boys. If anyone was up to that challenge, it had to be Jerry Douglas, whose skill on resonator and lap steel guitar has made him the go-to guy in today's music circles." -- No Depression

"Charlie Cushman (banjo, guitar) is astonishingly good, but more than that, he's well-matched by Barry Bales (bass), Shawn Camp (lead vocals, guitar), Johnny Warren (fiddle), and Jeff White (mandolin), and surpassed only by Jerry Douglas, who remains the greatest player the Dobro has ever known." -- Acoustic Guitar

high kings

The High Kings are four extraordinary Irish singers who celebrate the joy of traditional Celtic ballads and also bring to brilliant life their own original songs, making them a worldwide sensation. Charting a new course for traditional ballad music, the High Kings are marking a new era of Irish Folk music.

Ten years ago, four Irish singers, all performers and songwriters, decided to go where no other Irish ballad group had gone before. The heyday of ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners was a distant memory for generations of music fans, and to have another bunch of Irish lads continuing the tradition was great news to thousands of fans worldwide.

Their self-titled debut album, released in 2008, reached an impressive number two on Billboard Magazine’s World Music chart. It was during The High Kings second tour of the US in 2011, as they promoted their follow-up album Memory Lane that they realized their fanbase was growing into something no one had predicted. Subsequently, the group’s tour of Ireland sold out within hours.

The High Kings received accolades from the likes of legends Christy Moore and Ronnie Drew. They achieved what many thought impossible: they were moving the Irish ballad tradition into the modern era, bringing with them the steadfast older fans while bringing it to a new audience.

The group’s third studio album, Friends For Life (2013) featured original songs among the traditional fare. The development of original songwriting from each member of The High Kings continues apace, but balance must be maintained. The group’s fourth studio album, Grace & Glory, brought them back to the essentials that kick-started their career – traditional ballad songs with new arrangements.

2017 marks the band’s tenth anniversary. It was celebrated with a special compilation featuring a decade of outstanding songs and performances. The release of Decade-The Best of The High Kings garnered rave reviews and record sales with the band again topping the Irish Album Charts and returning to the Billboard World Music Charts.

Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent and a show so hot it carries its own health warning. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers’ achievements have reached incredible heights with their groundbreaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and Rock/Pop anthems which they proudly call “Bag-Rock.”

Since they walked away with the top prize on UK primetime TV talent show, When Will I Be Famous in 2007, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers haven’t stopped for a breath, other than to inflate their bagpipes!

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel good music which appeals across all ages to people throughout the world. They have a pool of the very best musicians from Scotland and across the globe, many holding World Champion titles and all serious players with impressive credentials and qualifications.

Taking their signature “Bag-Rock” sound to the masses, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers have fast become a global phenomenon, rocking far-flung shores from Melbourne to Milwaukee and everywhere in between.

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers sound is a fusion of traditional pipe tunes and contemporary anthems – tracks from across their albums include the likes of “Clocks” by Coldplay, “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, “Let Me Entertain You” by Robbie Williams, Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” a rock medley of Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water” and AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.” Plus, “Flower of Scotland,” “Amazing Grace” and “The Hills of Argyll” get a look in too, Chilli style of course!

The band has released 6 studio albums as of 2016, of which their first, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, was the least successful. Their 2007 album Bag-Rock to the Masses went platinum in Scotland and silver in Great Britain. Their third album and first live album, Blast Live (2008), went triple platinum in Scotland. Their fourth release Music for the Kilted Generation, reached Number 2 on the US Amazon Chart and was only held off the top spot due to Adele’s record-breaking album, 21. Success has followed with every new album including Braveheart (2012)Breathe (2013), Live at the Lake (2014) and Octane (2016).

There has never been anything quite like the Red Hot Chilli Pipers. Wherever you are, you are sure to have felt the Chilli heat. Now, it’s time to come closer to the fire.

Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, The Subdudes have quietly become one of America’s national music treasures.

The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and Jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky Rock ‘n Roll attitude and Folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you’ll ever hear from any five artists.

Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending Blues, Gospel, Funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée,  for a drummer. Tim Cook on percussion, bass and vocals and Jimmy Messa round out the band on bass and guitar.

More than just a concert, the “dudes” leave you feeling like they’re having a party and you were lucky enough to be invited.

Lewis Black MWB Music Without Borders

Sponsored by M&T Bank

Lewis Black, Grammy Award-winning, stand-up comedian, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as a stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights annually, to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently, a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City.

His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

Lewis Black came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996. Those appearances on The Daily Show led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy Award-winning The Carnegie Hall Performance.

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s. 

The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been an Indigo Girls calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and earned the respect of high profile peers and collaborated from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s Mountain Stage called the group “one of the finest folk duos of all time” while Rolling Stone said “they personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendentally its own.”   The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Both on and off the stage, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

Ellis Paul in the Loft

Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 8PM at SOPAC

Ellis Paul MWB Music Without Borders

Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It’s a rare artist who can do both, telling their own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall. Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer-songwriters.

Ellis Paul grew up on a Maine family farm, where he was encouraged to follow his dreams. After college graduation he worked as a teacher and social worker with inner city children by day and pursuing the possibilities offered by Boston’s fertile music scene at night, he gained prominence in local coffeehouses and open mic nights. It was the same circuit that opened the door for other like-minded artists of the day, and in turn, gave Ellis Paul exposure to such creative contemporaries as Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Patty Larkin, John Gorka, Catie Curtis, and Bill Morrissey. It also helped him win a Boston Underground Songwriting competition and placement on a Windham Hill Records singer/songwriter compilation, bringing him his first hint of national exposure at the same time.

The major tipping point in his career came with the opportunity to open for Bill Morrissey, one of New England’s most prominent Folk artists. He began to hone his talent, and became interested in the music of Woody Guthrie. Ellis Paul has a sense of roots, of connectedness to the whole history of Folk music; he sees the thread that runs through all the generations of this music.

He’s become a staple at the Newport Folk Festival, played Carnegie hall, and venues from Alaska to Miami, Paris and London. In addition to his 19 albums released on the Rounder and Black Wolf record labels, his music has appeared on dozens of distinguished compilations. A Film/ DVD entitled 3000 Miles — part concert film, part documentary, part instructional video — provides a further prospective on both the man and his music. He’s also released a pair of children’s albums, earning him honors from the Parent’s Choice Foundation for both. His latest, “The Hero In You” has been turned into a picture book, detailing the lives of great American heroes. Ellis Paul’s literate, evocative and insightful writings are further showcased in a book of poetry and short stories entitled Notes from the Road, already in its third pressing.

Ellis Paul’s new album, Chasing Beauty, is a set of songs which detail, in typical Paul fashion, stories of people and places that reflect larger truths about us all. “Kick Out the Lights (Johnny Cash)” pays tribute to that fearless American icon name-checked in its title. “Plastic Soldier” offers homage to a wounded soldier returning from Afghanistan. A real-life barnstorming pilot takes the spotlight in “Jimmie Angel’s Flying Circus,” while iconic Boston blue collar musician Dennis Brennan takes the focus in “Waiting on a Break.” Even the Empire State Building and the Boston Red Sox get their due, via “Empire State” and “UK Girl (Boston Calling),” respectively.

In reality, these stories are a continuation of tales Ellis Paul has told for more than a quarter century, over the expanse of nineteen albums, numerous critical kudos, inclusion in several movie soundtracks, and stages he’s headlined both near and far.

This is a story about each and everyone’s life. We all know life can be gray or colorful - this time it is going to be very colorful! After another long day full of meetings and deadlines, Mr. B finds himself transported to a magical world that’s inhabited by seahorses, dragon fish, starfish, mermaids, clown fish and more. They carry Mr. B along his imaginary journey in this beautiful underwater world where fantasy becomes reality and you are invited to follow him.

Taking cues from Cirque du Soleil, the visually spectacular show incorporates the latest in stage technology combining dancers, acrobats, lasers,  snow cannons, soap bubble tornadoes, theatrical fog, gigantic smoke rings, smoke-filled soap bubble machines, optical illusions and many other surprises.  Lasers, low ground smoke and flying foam simulate waves and the underwater atmosphere. A juggler in a huge plastic ball is the performer that immediately attracts Mr. B and the audience into Bubblelandia‘s wondrous world, while dancers and acrobats serve as “small colorful fish chasing Mr. B and each other inside the aquarium.  The main character is played by a skillful actor/mime exaggerating his gradual transformation from stressed out modernity to blissed out wonder, transporting the audience into this parallel universe of joy and freedom. 

Creators Enrico Pezzoli and bubble artist/spouse, Dace Pecoli,  have toured the world as a duo act for nearly twenty years working with the form, including a performance at the Sochi Olympics.

Cyrille Aimée: A Sondheim Adventure at SOPAC

Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 7:30PM at SOPAC

Cyrille Aimée MWB Music Without Borders

Winner of the 2012 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition, the native of France was captivated by Sondheim’s work when she was cast in a 2013 New York City Center production of A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Story. She eventually recorded “Live Alone and Like It” and from there plunged into a full album of Sondheim.

Cyrille Aimée, has a wealth of experiences in her young life that have shaped her sound, and love of music.  She ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at the world’s most prestigious Jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from singing Sondheim alongside Bernadette Peters to sharing her story in a TEDx talk; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York’s Apollo Theatre to being called a “rising star in the galaxy of Jazz singers” by The New York Times.

It was the idea and unlimited potential of improvisation that set Cyrille Aimée on her course, and the desire to pursue that in-the-moment creation inevitably led her to Jazz. She spent her teen years performing in the cafés and clubs of Paris, then attended the American School of Modern Music there. She garnered her first taste of fame – or, perhaps more accurately, notoriety – when she was selected as one of 16 semi-finalists for Star Academy, the French equivalent of “American Idol.” When she realized how restrictive the show’s contract would be, however, she opted to walk away, igniting a scandal in the French media.

Aimée escaped the spotlight but was soon drawn to the U.S., where she attended SUNY Purchase on scholarship – in large part due to its proximity to the Jazz hub of Manhattan. She honed her skills through weekly gigs at a Soho restaurant and at Birdland Jazz Club. She also became a regular at Smalls Jazz Club in Greenwich Village.

At the same time, no less an authority than Stephen Sondheim recognized that Cyrille Aimée’s captivating gift for storytelling through song would translate to the theatrical stage. The musical theater icon hand-picked her to star alongside the legendary Bernadette Peters in an Encores Special Presentation tribute to Sondheim at New York’s City Center in November 2013, backed by Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. One thing led to another, and the stage was set for A Sondheim Adventure, and a full immersion into the Sondheim canon.

 “Astonishingly creative….with a brilliant sound, fresh ideas, impeccable rhythm and an overall approach that honors tradition without being shackled to the past.” — Wall Street Journal

One of the most prolific and popular performers working today, stand-up, actor and author Lewis Black has performed for audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. In 2012, he performed eight sell-out shows at Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway. 

Known as the king of the rant, Black uses his trademark style of comedic yelling and animated finger-pointing to skewer anything and anyone that gets under his skin. His comedic brilliance lies in his ability to make people laugh at the absurdities of life, with topics that include current events, social media, politics and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy and madness he sees in the world. 

In 1996, he created a weekly three-minute rant segment for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” which  evolved, one of the most popular and longest-running segments on the show and with  his four specials for the “Comedy Central Presents” series helped win him Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards in 2001.

Black has released nine CDs that have received five Grammy® nominations and two wins for the Best Comedy Album.  He has filmed two specials for HBO, one of which was nominated for an Emmy® in 2007. He had a regular feature for two seasons on “Inside the NFL”, for which he earned a Sports Emmy.  He has filmed two feature length concert films and has appeared on “Larry King Live,” and late night shows hosted by Piers Morgan, Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, Conan O’ Brian and Craig Ferguson. Black has written three best-selling books and more than 40 plays., many of which have been produced around the country, including at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. 

Black has appeared in films, co-starring with Robin Williams in Barry Levinson’s “Man of the Year” (Universal Pictures), as well as roles Steve Pink’s “Accepted”, and Paul Feig’s “Unaccompanied Minors.” In 2015, Black notably voiced the character “Anger” in the Academy Award winning film from Pixar, “Inside Out.” 

Black is a strong supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Autism Speaks and was honored by The Brady Center for his commitment to ending gun violence. He was honored by the ACLU of Georgia with their National Civil Liberties Award and also has performed in three USO tours, visiting several Middle Eastern and European military bases.

It’s hard to imagine a Blues double bill with two more celebrated masters than Coco Montoya and Tinsley Ellis. Fiery guitar licks and passionate vocals are the hallmarks of these musical wizards. They will leave you breathless with this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The old Willie Dixon adage, “Blues is truth,” perfectly describes the searing, contemporary Blues-Rock of world-renowned guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya. Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, but with a hard-edged sound and style all his own Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, delivering the Blues’ hardest truths. He earned his status as a master guitarist and soul-powered vocalist through years of paying his dues as a sideman with Collins (first as a drummer) and then with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, before launching his solo career in 1993. Five years of constant touring with Collins and ten years with Mayall turned him into a monster player and dynamic performer. Montoya has released eight solo albums—including three for Alligator between 2000 and 2007—and has played at clubs, concert halls and major festivals all over the world. Guitar Player says Montoya plays “stunning, powerhouse blues with a searing tone, emotional soloing, and energetic, unforced vocals.”

Since his Alligator debut 30 years ago, Southern Blues-Rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis has become a bona fide worldwide guitar hero. The Chicago Sun-Times says, “It’s hard to overstate the raw power of his music.” Now, he makes his triumphant return to Alligator Records with a powerful new album, Winning Hand. Armed with his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis, as his legions of fans will attest, is among the Blues world’s best-loved, hardest working and most well-travelled statesmen. He has performed in all 50 United States as well as in Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, Australia and South America, earning legions of fans with his guitar virtuosity, passionate vocals and memorable original songs. Ellis is also revered as a guitarist’s guitarist, with famous friends including Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Oliver Wood, Jonny Lang and members of Widespread Panic calling on him to sit in and jam. “A musician never got famous staying home,” he says.

Bela Fleck Abigail Washburn MWB Music Without Borders

Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, “the king and queen of the banjo” (Paste Magazine), have a musical partnership like no other. Béla Fleck is a fifteen-time Grammy Award winner who has taken the instrument across multiple genres, and Abigail Washburn a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player who re-radicalized it by combining it with Far East culture and sounds. The two met at a square dance, began collaborating musically and eventually fell in love. Over the years, they played together most visibly in the Sparrow Quartet alongside Ben Sollee and Casey Driessen and informally at a pickin’ party here, a benefit there, or occasionally popping up in each other’s solo shows. Fans of tradition-tweaking acoustic fare eagerly anticipated that Béla & Abigail would begin making music together as a duo.

Fleck has the virtuosic, jazz-to-classical ingenuity of an iconic instrumentalist and composer with bluegrass roots. His collaborations range from his ground-breaking standard-setting ensemble Béla Fleck and the Flecktones to a staggeringly broad array of musical experiments. From writing concertos for full symphony orchestra, exploring the banjo’s African roots, to jazz duos with Chick Corea, many tout that Béla Fleck is the world’s premier banjo player. Washburn has the earthy sophistication of a postmodern, old-time singer-songwriter who has drawn critical acclaim for her solo albums. She has done fascinating work in folk musical diplomacy in China, presented an original theatrical production, and has contributed to singular side groups Uncle Earl and The Wu-Force. In addition, Washburn has recently created a non-profit with Chinese zither-master, Wu Fei, called the Ripple Effect, whose mission is to unite and open hearts through the unique sounds and harmony of American and Chinese folk music.

On stage, Fleck & Washburn will perform pieces from their Grammy-winning self-titled debut as well as their new record, Echo in the Valley (Rounder 2017). With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America’s rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Bela & Abigail meet in the mean, head-on, to present music that feels wildly innovative and familiar at the same time. Whether at home, on stage or on record, their deep bond, combined with the way their distinct musical personalities and banjo styles interact, makes theirs a picking partnership unlike any other on the planet.

Max Weinberg's Jukebox MWB Music Without Borders

Fresh off the hugely successful The River Tour 2016-2017 of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band — where the group played 89 concerts nearly four hours long each night in 15 countries amassing $300,000,000 in ticket sales, Rock-and-Roll Hall Of Fame Drummer and South Orange native Max Weinberg brings his new performance concept to SOPAC — Max Weinberg’s Jukebox.

How many times have you attended a show where you yearned to hear your favorite performer play your favorite song? With Max Weinberg’s Jukebox your dream will be realized.

A truly interactive experience, Weinberg asks you to create in real-time the set list he and his crack four-piece group will play that night. You will choose songs from the glory days of Rock and Roll that you select from a video menu of over 200 songs—everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band’s biggest hits—and hear the group play them the way you want to hear them played!

That’s right—you get to yell out your choices and Max plays them! This unique approach will bring you right into the action as a hit maker for the evening. Every show is different because you are choosing the songs!

Max Weinberg, the driving rhythmic force propelling The E Street Band for 43 years, is also known to millions of fans for his 17-year stint as the bandleader and comedic foil to talk show host Conan O’Brien and is the only musician in history to make the leap from a starring role in one of the world’s iconic Rock groups to leading his eponymous band on NBC’s Late Night and The Tonight Show. And Max Weinberg managed to do make it look so easy as he juggled both gigs for a decade from 1999-2009.

Throughout his 50-year professional career Weinberg has played with some of the biggest and most diverse names in music—James Brown, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, BB King, Tony Bennett, Ringo Starr, John Fogerty, Stevie Winwood, Sheryl Crow—even Isaac Hayes performing his legendary Shaft with a 30-piece orchestra Max conducted on the Late Night broadcast.

There is no doubt, he is a legendary musician who will have you rocking out at SOPAC with Max Weinberg’s Jukebox!

“Fun, Fun, Fun” comes to the Hawaii Theatre Center when The Beach Boys perform on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 8:00 PM.  Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, February 8 at 9:00 am!  

Since lead singer Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the band’s chart-toppers have become symbols of Californian lifestyle and anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me, Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “Kokomo.”

The Beach Boys have sold more than 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 30 Recording Industry Association of America platinum and gold records.

Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys, Capitol/EMI’s 30-track collection of the band’s biggest hits, has achieved triple-platinum success—sales of more than three million copies in the U.S. since its release. With more than five decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.

The Beach Boys are led by Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeffrey Foskett, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher, Scott Totten, and Christian Love continue the legacy of America’s iconic band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, or David Marks.

The Beach Boys concert at the Historic Hawaii Theatre will raise funds to help maintain the historic venue.  Tickets offered include a limited number of VIP Dinner package tickets for $500 per person, concert only tickets are $150, $135, $115 and $100 plus ticketing fees.

Mountain Men MWB SOPAC Music Without Borders

Mountain Man did not intend to disappear for the better part of a decade, or to take eight years to release its second album, Magic Ship. But for a trio of devoted friends for whom music has always seemed so effortless and graceful, that’s simply how life went. The wondrous Magic Ship —a magnetic fourteen-song reflection on the joys, follies, and oddities of existence—was well worth the wait.

In 2009, when she was a student at a small liberal arts college in New England, Amelia Meath heard a gorgeous sound coming from the living room of her dormitory. She raced downstairs to find Molly Erin Sarlé singing “Dog Song,” a tender tune about lust, longing, and responsibility. Meath demanded that Sarlé, nearly a stranger, teach her the tune, which she, in turn, taught to a friend, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig. The next time the pair saw Sarlé, they sang “Dog Song” to, and then with, her. And so, Mountain Man was born.

The three weren’t quite yet friends when they performed, recorded, and even toured for the first time, but they each felt the chemistry within their combined voices, a sense of artistic kismet and kinship that some spend lifetimes seeking. Acclaim came quickly, with their debut—2010’s Made the Harbor, humbly recorded on rickety equipment in an abandoned factory—earning praise from The New York Times and theGuardian and prompting big tours.

But before they could return to the studio, post-collegiate life intervened. They kept in touch with near-weekly conference calls, growing as friends while taking a break from making music together. At last, they tested their again-blossoming friendship onstage in the summer of 2017 at the Eaux Claires music festival. On a tiny, cabin-like stage tucked into a forest, where audiences of a few hundred are considered big, Mountain Man captivated several thousand, with people climbing trees and fighting through stinging nettles to catch a glimpse or whisper. Hanging on every note and between-song quip, the crowd stood transfixed and silent—a festival miracle, there in the woods. And so, Mountain Man was reborn.

Months later, the trio reconvened at Meath’s home studio in Durham for two recording sessions, each bringing songs destined to be sung with old friends. The result, Magic Ship, is every bit as captivating as that day onstage. There is sincerity and humor, depth and mirth, all rendered with three voices that have never been more connected.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo

“It isn’t merely the grace and power of their dancing or the beauty of their singing that rivets the attention, but the sheer joy and love that emanates from their being.” —  Paul Simon

The group was founded in the early 1960s by Joseph Shabalala, a teenage farm boy living just outside the small town of Ladysmith, in the province of KwaZulu Natal. A radio broadcast in 1970 opened the door to their first record contract, the beginning of an ambitious recording career that currently includes more than seventy albums, earning nineteen GRAMMY Award nominations and five GRAMMY Award wins. When Nelson Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, he called on Ladysmith Black Mambazo to join him in Norway to perform at the ceremony. Mandela called the group South Africa’s Cultural Ambassadors to the world. It is a moniker the group members hold close to their hearts.

The group sings from a traditional music called Isicathamiya (Is-cot-a-ME-Ya), which developed in the mines of South Africa. It was there that black workers were taken by rail to work far away from their homes and families. Poorly housed and paid worse, the mine workers would entertain themselves after a six-day week by singing songs into the wee hours on Sunday morning. When the miners returned to the homelands, this musical tradition returned with them.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has recorded with Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, Sarah McLachlan, Josh Groban, Emmylou Harris, Melissa Etheridge, and many others. They have provided music for many movies, have appeared on Broadway where they were nominated for a Tony Award and even had a documentary film, titled On Tip Toe: Gentle Steps to Freedom, the Story of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, nominated for an Academy Award.

Friday, January 11, 2019 at 8PM at Landmark on Main Street

Aaron Neville Duo Music Without Borders MWB

Until now, it's been easy to separate Aaron Neville's career into two separate but equal strains: the funky stuff he's favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he's punching his own time card as a solo artist. Casual fans might admit they don't know much -- to borrow a phrase -- about Neville's musical center, but they've perceived a certain split in his career. An education is about to be provided, then, in the form of Apache, a solo album that makes the case for Aaron Neville as the most holistic of soul men. Its hard R&B side matches anything the Neville Brothers ever recorded for true grit, while still allowing plenty of space for a singer who's arguably the most distinctive vocal stylist on the planet to tell it like it is.

Apache also reflects Neville's social and spiritual concerns, marking only the second time in his 56-year recording career that he's co-written nearly an entire album's worth of material. The words are straight out of a poetry journal he began keeping in the 1970s, which more recently migrated to his iPhone. Together with collaborators Eric Krasno (guitarist for the groups Soulive and Rustic) and Dave Gutter (frontman for the Rustic Overtones), Apache is a modern/revivalist marvel harking back to a golden age that produced classics like Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On.

"I call it The Other Side of Aaron," says the 75-year-old legend, offering an alternative album title, "because people know me from doing the ballads and New Orleans stuff. They're getting another feel of Aaron" -- a record that touches on the mystic gumbo of "Yellow Moon" and sheer sweetness of "Everybody Plays the Fool" while diverging toward a third path we've never quite heard from Neville in the studio.

While Neville sometimes tours with his quintet, this is a smaller, more intimate show that features Neville and keyboard player Michael Goods. "I like the energy of the quintet," he says, "and I also like the laid-back quality of the duo, just coming off the top of my head with things, not having to worry about whether we rehearsed it. Sometimes I put Michael on the spot, because I'll come up with something he's never heard before, but then he'll catch it and that will make it even cooler. I bring the audience back to where I first started, with some Nat King Cole or anything that comes to my mind..."

And that mind is constantly racing, musically, just as it was in the days when the teachers would catch him deep in a distracted schoolboy reverie. "Because I've got about 10 million songs in my head. Some of 'em wake me up at 3:00 in the morning, and I've got to sing the whole song to myself before I can get back to sleep, to make sure I know all the words," he laughs. His middle-of-the-night song insomnia can make for his next audience's dream come true.

John Oates is one-half of the best-selling duo of all time, Daryl Hall & John Oates, as well as a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Now he has teamed up with a number of accomplished Americana musicians, known as The Good Road Band, to deliver his sixth solo album, Arkansas (Thirty Tigers).

The album pays homage to the state’s beautiful countryside and Oates’ interest in early American music. Beginning as a tribute to Oates’ musical idol, Mississippi John Hurt, the project evolved during a series of Nashville recording sessions into a unique, retrospective collection that drew from a wide range of Oates’ creative influences. John Oates’ critically acclaimed album is out now.

 “My uncle Tony, after World War II, moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas and lived there for the rest of his life. I went there to visit him,” says Oates, saying that the wide-open landscape captivated him as a youngster. Then, on a recent trip back to the area, inspiration struck. “I stood at night out in the middle of the cotton fields all along the banks of the Mississippi River and it was one of the most beautiful moments that I’ve ever experienced, with the moonlight shining on the white cotton, and I just thought, ‘Man, this is so American, in a way.'” Oates soon put pen to paper. “I went back to Nashville, and the next day I just wrote the song. It just came out of me.”

Rolling Stone hailed Arkansas as one of the Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2018. In addition, the publication said the album “pays tribute to the voices that became before him… shining a light not only on the state’s countryside, but its contributions to country music, too.”

“Listening to the sonic flavors of Arkansas is akin to a visit to a museum where the early history of music is on display – whether that genre be Country, Blues, or Rock.” – Billboard

Arkansas may be Oates’ very best album simply because the music is so much a part of him that he can deliver it with a simple intensity that evokes a range of feelings in the listeners.” – No Depression

Garland Jeffreys SOPAC MWB Music Without Borders

The legendary Garland Jeffreys doesn’t fit into neat little boxes: his thoughtful, passionate songs mix New Wave, Soul, Reggae, Garage Rock, Doo-wop and Latin influences to create a deeply personal hybrid that reflects his own multi-ethnic roots.  A New York native and veteran of the fertile mid-‘70s and early ‘80s scene that included peers like Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed, Mink DeVille and Phoebe Snow, Garland Jeffreys’ songs range from streetwise urban-romantic love songs to penetrating social critiques tackling issues of race in America, especially on his album Don’t Call Me Buckwheat which has been called “one of the most important, hard hitting records since Marvin Gaye’s masterpiece What’s Going On (Stereo Review). With songs covered by artists as diverse as punk pioneers The Circle Jerks, neo-folk band Vetiver and Jazz trumpet great Randy Brecker, Garland Jeffreys is truly unclassifiable.

After a long hiatus, Garland Jeffreys has self-released three stellar albums over the last 7 years: The King of In Between, was featured on numerous 2011 year-end best of lists, including those of Rolling Stone, MSN, and NPR, and been recognized as “a late career masterpiece” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Truth Serum in 2013 is “an album that’s urgent and immediate — much like NYC itself — but also filled with seven decades of gritty, street-smart attitude (American Songwriter), and 2017’s 14 Steps To Harlem had critics raving “more proof that he deserves musical comparisons that fall somewhere between Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen and Graham Parker” (Pop Matters) and “shows the now 73-year old songwriter still reveling in the kind of wide-ranging songwriting that has today become a lost art” (Stereophile).

Garland Jeffreys’ songs have been featured in numerous films and television shows, most recently in the Netflix series The Get DownThe Deuce and Thirteen Reasons Why.

A proud inductee of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, a New York Blues Hall of Famer and a recent addition to the prestigious Yale University Oral Music Archives, Jeffreys and his team are crowd funding a feature-length documentary, with interviews already filmed with Laurie Anderson, critic David Hajdu and Harvey Keitel.

Over a career that’s spanned thirty years, he has become one of America’s most recognized and adored comics, continuing to tour and perform to standing-room-only crowds across the country.

Sharing his childhood experiences as one of eleven children growing up in Minnesota, Louie’s comedy routines rang true to his early club audiences, and led him to his national television debut on the “Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” in 1984. The rest is history. Appearances on Leno, Letterman, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Comic Relief,” Showtime, HBO and CMT specials followed.

Hosting the legendary game show, “Family Feud,” soon made him a household name opening doors for him as an actor.

His Saturday morning animated series “Life with Louie,” garnered three Humanitas Prizes, as well as a Genesis Award for its depiction of the proper treatment of animals and, most significantly, two Emmy Awards.

In his 2018 stand-up special, “Big Underwear,” taped at the historic Palace Theatre in Los Angeles, he plays on the challenges of getting healthy, life on the road, dealing with technology and how we all eventually become our parents. When not in production, Louie continues to tour, traveling the States doing what Louie loves to do, Stand-Up Comedy.

Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.

“Piercing, blinding, slaying, violating wit.” 
– NPR

Todd’s resume also includes such hit TV shows as LouieDelocatedBored to DeathTim and EricChappelle’s ShowSex and the City, and even Sesame Street.

 “Acerbic wit, deadpan delivery and wickedly smart punchlines.” 
– Time Out New York

Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium EnergyFalling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival’s Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onion’s A.V. Club, which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade.

 “Comedy savants revere this Conan and Letterman veteran’s hushed, singsong sarcasm.” 
– Entertainment Weekly

Todd was once the subject of a New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.” Find the Todd Barry Podcast iTunes and other platforms.
