March 28th @ 8pm come enjoy an amazing concert put on by Jeremiah Sammartano. Jeremiah is a Los Angeles based, Emmy nominated Native American singer/songwriter who fronts the bluesy/Americana group, Jeremiah and the Red Eyes. He has covered many miles over the past several years - taking the various roads spreading music influenced by the raw blues of Charley Patton, the lyrical and often raucous sounds of The Pogues, the twang of Willie Nelson, and some vintage rock and roll - "Delta Blues and Twangy Grooves" - from Los Angeles outward through the Southwest, Austin, St. Louis, Nashville (where he relocated for a spell in 2008-2009), Chicago - and overseas to the UK. In the past Jeremiah has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Southern Culture On The Skids, David Olney, Mike Stinson, SHURMAN and has performed on the radio shows: WDVX Blue Plate Special out of Knoxville, TN., The Live@Lunch show on KRFC out of Fort Collins, CO., and Chris Morris' Watusi Rodeo show out of Los Angeles. In Spring 2011 Jeremiah received an Emmy nomination for writing music for the documentary, Prison Through Tomorrow's Eyes. Three albums have been released; 2004's "Red Eyed And Restless", 2010's "Under Your Spell", and 2012's 10-song album called "HOME". In 2013 these were followed by local shows and a Southwest tour with friend Mikaela Dewar (from New Zealand and currently living in Nashville), and shows across the Midwest and South.

thursday nite Open Mikes are really pickin' up!

Open Mike, Thurs. April 2: there are a lot of good musicians showing up for this, but in my opinion the best may have been the young blonde lady accompanied only by her guitar -- who played somewhat early. Her voice was very expressive, beautiful, a formidible instrument. Ellis on the piano displayed versatility: he played a classical ditty ("Clair de Lune"? something like it) and later an original blues piece with an accompanying musician. Matt also showed versatility: singing his song with a guitar and then while playing piano. The guy from San Diego -- I thought he sounded a bit like Mark Knoppfler! and, again, thanks to Jared as behind-the-scenes facilitator and Thad the sound-man who also backed up a couple groups on drums!

ERIKA (to name the "young blonde lady") -- continues to entertain and impress April 16 open mike. Josh & Kyle -- a tight very good duo, Josh's vocals always uplifting. Matt: his first song had intricate guitar stylings blending well with the voice. No Ethan nor Ellis ?! Thanks again to Jared and Thad for hosting.

it's gittin' so they might need a SIGN-IN Sheet for Thurz nites. @ least Ellis and his bro (and a friend) got out and up early -- then ya' gotta hand it to Jim M: he facilitated/arranged a venue where 5 (?) other musicians also got to play -- Jay on bass kept it solid and together. the somewhat free-form vibe continued with the lady singin' with her guitar and a guy on harp -- later joined by Nita/Kim (& Fred, and ?? on congas) for a loose interpretation of "know U rider" -- and the craziness continued --> . IT'S NEAT that there was about as much music OUTSIDE. people still waitin' to play as it got dark -- I vote for an excursion to THE GOOD OL' DAZE OF THURZDAY OPEN MIKE: where practically everybody who got up and there was room on stage, they filled it up! Thanx again Jared and Thad for hosting!

oh-pen mike (not quite headless, yet) -- May 13: ERIKA is a very good reason to go hear open Thursdaze -- i'm not one to "get technical" nor analytical in critiques/reviews -- but the yearning, the angst, in her voice -- accompanied by a capable and complementary guitar -- is she getting better? could be. all 3 songs were borderline-mesmerizng, and her chris isaacs (i know i got that wrong, but) interpretation is still ringing in my head.

May 21: where was everybody?

RAPP music! insofar as i'm aware, this is/was a 1st for open mike. the dood didd good! i wasn't sure if i'd like this or not -- but the three pieces (and I'll get his name if I see him again) he did were entertaining and it was fun to see (yet) another artist at work.

New Sound-Board! Sam/Thad/Jared workin' out the kinky stuff (or embellishing the k. stuff ...?). the first lady to sing on stage commented that after her and the ¿accompanyist? played "at least everyone else will know they did better than someone".
