Stephane Wrembel at The Acoustic

Friday May 24th

Doors at 7pm Show at 8pm

$20 advance Ticket/$25 Ticket day of show

TICKETS

Stephane Wrembel is presenting his new album The Django Experiment IV. The Django Experiment is a special series of recordings. The concept is a tribute to the great guitar master, Django Reinhardt; mixing compositions and influences from other landscapes of the musical world, aiming to create an inner journey for the listener.

"Perhaps the most creative improviser in Gypsy jazz today, Mr. Wrembel plays the guitar with a rich and colorful lyricism." - NY Times

Stephane Wrembel is quite simply one of the finest guitar players in the world. The breadth and range of his playing and compositions are unmatched. To say that Wrembel— who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside— has already had a remarkable career would be an under-statement. This prolific, virtuoso guitarist has been releasing a steady stream of music since 2006 and has truly made his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. Stephane Wrembel is widely known for “Bistro Fada”, the theme song from the 2011 Woody Allen Oscar winning film and Grammy Award winning soundtrack, Midnight In Paris.

People's Blues of Richmond w/s/g The Jauntee

People's Blues of Richmond w/s/g The Jauntee at The Acoustic

Saturday May 11th

Doors at 8pm Show at 9pm

$10 advance ticket/ $12 ticket day of show

TICKETS

People's Blues of Richmond (or PBR as they are affectionately referred to by their fans) is one of those rare three-pieces that somehow conjures the sonic power and visual intensity of a thunderstorm. Think Jimi Hendrix Experience meets MC5. They take psychedelic blues rock to a different level with a lyrical element seldom found in the genre. Think Bob Dylan writing lyrics for Black Sabbath songs. It’s hard to imagine until it’s right in your face. Then it’s hard to forget.

In a world filled with instant gratification, gimmicky over saturation and a lack of true improvisation, The Jauntee pays tribute to music’s ability to transcend simple entertainment and cultivate a truly distinctive experience. The Jauntee has fostered a musical community based on a breadth of original material that engages fans through nightly exploration and risk taking. Averaging over one hundred shows a year, with each containing a unique set list and their own special improvisational moments, the band is constantly expanding upon what defines them and their live performances.

The Cosmic Jibaros Music builds from Latin and Caribbean rhythms, Rock guitars and World music influences for a sound that’s both cross-cultural and highly danceable. There’s an irresistible pull of traditional Afro-Caribbean Beats, interplays between the congas and timbales mixed with urban elements in the deep drum and bass and effects-laden guitar work. These songs are laced with social and political overtones, and are sung primarily in Spanish by charismatic front man Rick Reyes. 

Los Vegas is a brand new project featuring William Vega of Big Moon, Juan Carlos Vega of the Cosmic Jibaros, and honorary Vega’s Lawrence Rodrigues James Cote and TBone Stone. Blending Latin, Blues and Rock music for this Cinco de Mayo Celebration.

Sci-fi fusion trio Consider the Source defy easy categorization. If intergalactic energy beings, upon their initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built a pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine powered by psychedelic math...it would sound like a cut-rate CTS cover band. With their blend of progressive rock and improvisatory jazz, soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate elements into an utterly original whole. A relentless touring schedule has earned them a fervent following around the world, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies to corpse-painted headbangers.

With talent and Dead-ication, Stella confidently delivers tunes from all stages of the Grateful Dead's 30-year run: from hits like Truckin’, Touch of Grey and Shakedown, to the groovin’ late 60s jams of St. Stephen, Lovelight and Hard to Handle, to the most complex tunes from deep in the repertoire like Unbroken Chain, Help on the Way/Slipknot and Here Comes Sunshine. Most of all, Stella captures the unique sound and adventurous spirit of the music and that special feeling and community unique to Grateful Dead shows. Our attention to the details of sound and love of the music are apparent from the first note of an SBB show to the last.
