An Evening with Holly Bowling

 Texture, nuance, and a gift for dexterous high-wire improvisation are the hallmarks of San Francisco-based classically trained pianist Holly Bowling, who infuses jam band music with a technically advanced, emotionally rich style. After studying piano performance at SF State University, Bowling has turned her agile mind and interpretive prowess to the works of Phish on 2013’s Distillation Of A Dream album and the newly released Grateful Dead focused Better Left Unsung (released December 9, 2016 through The Royal Potato Family). Her instantly compelling playing and unerring ability to successfully collaborate with other musicians in an impressive array of styles has brought her to the attention of Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Branford Marsalis, and other luminaries who’ve asked Bowling to perform with them, and led to her being featured both as a solo artist and band collaborator as part of this years Christmas Jam hosted by Warren Haynes. Already a rising star on the festival circuit, Bowling plans to expand her solo touring in 2017 and beyond.

Lespecial April Fools Show w/s/g Mushroom Cloud

Lespecial is back in Black Rock for a Saturday April Fools Night of music. This show is not to be missed . Mushroom Cloud will be getting the night started

Tickets available in advance or at the door - http://lespecialaprilfools.bpt.me

Born in the woods of Connecticut and raised in the wilds of Boston, lespecial has established themselves as innovators and tastemakers on their own unique traje...ctory. The aggressive death-funk dance trio explodes with energetic live sets, tapping into a primitive past distorted through the lense of contemporary technology. Their debut full length album “Omnisquid”, out November 20th 2015, captures the band (at their heaviest,) interweaving dark, heavy, polyrhythmic grooves with head bobbing electronic synths and samplers augmented with fierce, precise musicianship, creating an apocalyptic backdrop for the sci-fi storyline. Preceded by their Ceremony EP (2013) and Playonbrother Sessions (2011), Jonathan Grusauskas (guitar/synth/sampler/vocals), Luke Bemand (bass/synth) and Rory Dolan (drums/sampler) ignore convention, instead amalgamating the familiar styles of Afro-Latin rhythmic traditions, Hip Hop, Funk and Metal into a singular sound that dexterously transforms during their live sets and over the course of their studio albums. As Ben Weiss of Relix Magazine puts it, “Amidst the rest of the noise, lespecial is the squeaky wheel that demands attention.”

A Special Acoustic Evening with Frank Viele & Brett Wilson

Come join us for a special intimate Sunday show with two excellent storytellers, Frank Viele & Brett Wilson. Advanced discounted tickets available. http://frankvielebrettwilson.bpt.me

Brett Wilson

In addition to being the gravelly-voiced lead singer, righteous songwriter, and experimental guitarist for award-winning New Hampshire based Reggae/Rock/Dubtronica band, Roots of Creation, Brett Wilson is now establishing his solo career. Drawing on a deep catalogue of Roots of Creation material, unreleased solo songs, and select creative covers of musical influences, Wilsons soulful vocals, conscientious lyrics, and skillful guitar work are pulled into the spotlight in this acoustic setting. A Brett Wilson solo performance is both energizing and easy going, reducing stresses, worries and negativities, while inspiring camaraderie that makes you want to raise your glass.

Frank Viele

Frank Viele sings with such urgency that it is as if his very soul hangs in the balance of every note. His ravaged, blue collar vocals convey a poignant desperation. But hes not a victim, hes a victor, an advocate for surviving, a champion to all who have sacrificed and struggled just to get by. (AXS.com)

Eliot Lewis returns to Black Rock

Come down for a special Friday night of great music by local superstar Eliot Lewis. Eliot has been touring the world with Hall and Oates for many years so its always fun to see him in a small intimate room. Tickets available now www.eliotlewis.bpt.me
 

Eliot Lewis is a singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist as well as being a key member of the the Daryl Hall & John Oates band. Eliot is also one of the original fea- tured musicians on MTVs "Live From Daryl's House. His contributions stand out on some of the best moments from the show including performances with Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Walsh, Todd Rundgren,Train, Grace Potter, Ben Folds, Booker T, Jewel, Rob Thomas, Keb Mo, Jason Mraz, Darius Rucker, Gavin DeGraw and many, many... others. Earlier in his career Eliot spent several years as a key member of the The Average White Band. Eliot toured, wrote and also produced several songs for the Scottish soul band.

There are many who shaped Eliots music and writing. As a guitar player, definitely Jeff Beck who I've been listening to all my life, as well as Billy Gibbons who I had the great fortune of working with recently, and Peter Frampton who I actually jammed with when I was 14 yrs old. I had the amazing experience of meeting and seeing many influential artists when I was a kid mainly at Madison Square Garden in New York City. A place I just played with Hall & Oates which was a lifetime dream. One of the first writers to in- spire me to write songs was Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, another favorite band of mine that I just worked with on Live From Daryl's House.

The Heavy Pets & Backup Planet 4:20 Party

Happy 4:20 ya'll! The Heavy Pets are coming back for a special Thursday night rager on one of the happiest nights of the year. They are bringing with them Backup Planet for this black rock stop. If you haven't heard or seen this band you are in for a real treat. Backup Planet will soon be your favorite jamband on the scene. Advanced discounted tickets available. http://heavypetsbackupplanet.bpt.me

The Heavy Pets are an American rock band that blends rhythm & blues, jazz, funk, disco and reggae with rock & roll. Called “a living, breathing, force of nature...” by Relix Magazine, The Pets are known for their soulful songcraft and powerhouse live performances. Having released 3 short EP's over the last two years the band will break ground this October on their first self-produced full-length release since their debut album.

Backup Planet is a progressive funk-rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. To see Backup Planet perform live is to simultaneously travel back in time and... forward into the future. Their truly unique sound emanates from a place that seems familiar, yet unchartered. Elements of jazz, funk, roots, blues, electronic, and progressive rock all emerge during the course of their shows. Their sound draws from so much you’ve heard before—‘70s rock and funk, high-energy improv, a touch of pop, and a sliver of metal. But the members of Backup Planet mix and match those elements—with just a hint of modern tech to burnish a sturdy nucleus of retro-minded organ and guitar—in ways that never fail to astonish. With a fantastic repertoire of original songs, they’re able to build fluid sets interspersed with extended improvisation.

Primate Fiasco

To a deaf person, they look like a New Orleans dixieland street band. To a blind person, they sound like a rave DJ mashing-up house beats with 60′s folk lyrics. To the police, it’s a busy day on the sidewalk.

The Primate Fiasco uses instruments that are loud without electricity, giving them the opportunity to attack at any moment, in any location, with or without permission. No one is safe, not even an elevator or city bus. If The Primate Fiasco sees a dull moment somewhere, they will pop out of the nearest sewer drain or trash can to lead an irresistible dance party.

We are happy to have the Wobblesauce Saucery Overload Tour stop in Black Rock at The Acoustic. Advanced tickets available http://wobblesaucetheacoustic.bpt.me

Out of Boston, MA, Wobblesauce blasts through generic boundaries as a unique concoction of electronica, rock, and overall action-packed instrumental dance music! Trained in various musical tracts, members Jake Boynton (Bass), Mike Hallock (Guitar), Steve Learson (Keys, Synths), and Scotty Zwang (Drums) combine killer keyboard riffs and sultry synthesizer soundscapes with live drums, heavy bass, and soaring guitar solos to create a one-of-a-kind, energetic, live concert experience.

 Wobblesauce is also known as the founders of the event Wobble Wednesdays in Boston, MA, which from 2010-2015 ran for a staggering 264 consecutive weeks!

DeadPhish Orchestra

We are very happy to announceDeadPhish Orchestra's first show at The Acoustic. Come experience the seamless web of Phish & Dead to split open and melt your face. These guys know how to bring this music to life!! Door 8pm & Two Set starting at 9:30pm Tickets on sale now. http://deadphishorchestra.bpt.me

The DeadPhish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played music together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene.

While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy ba...nd where Phish is sharper around the edges–funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens.

http://considerthesourcect.bpt.me

NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, itd probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion, the bands music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks.

FELIX MARTIN is a Venezuelan guitarist who is pioneering a style of playing the electric guitar by performing simultaneously with two of them as if they were one, creating a new sound on the instrument. Felix is pushing music into new boundaries by mixing Rock and Metal with different styles such as Jazz, Progressive, World, Latin, Fusion, etc. The uniqueness of his guitars and technique allows him to create distinguished sounds that makes the music sound unique. Felix has toured with his band that includes Berklee Alumni drummers and bassist Kilian Duarte throughout the USA, Europe and South America. Played in festivals such as Progressive Nation, SXSW, Euroblast, Tech-Fest and many more.

Hip Hop music has always been unafraid to push boundaries. Perhaps because it simultaneously came from nothing yet came from everything, the genre stands alone in how creatively outside influences can be incorporated into its musical mix.

PitchBlak Brass Band uses the epic sounds of tubas, trombones, saxophones and other typically non-hip hop instruments in the spirit of The Roots and some of rap’s iconic live bands, to deliver an energy that samples, loops and breakbeats can’t always capture. Their blend of soundscapes and lyrical exuberance creates a grand adventure in listening, one that can hold the attention of music fans from across a fairly wide spectrum.

The Nigel Hall Band w/s/g Diesel Lady featuring members of Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds

The Acoustic is thrilled to have the amazing Nigel Hall Band in Black Rock! Nigel's latest album is one of the best releases in decades and we are all looking forward to dancing the night away. Getting things started will be a new project, Diesel Lady featuring members of Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds. Doors 7:30pm Music 8:30pm. Advanced discounted tickets on sale now. http://nigelhallband.bpt.me

Soul provider Nigel Hall is in many ways an artist who needs no introduction. An in-demand sideman, he’s built a mighty foundation of funk over the years onstage and in the studio with collaborators including the Warren Haynes Band, Jon Cleary, Soulive, Oteil Burbridge and Roosevelt Collier, Ledisi, the Soul Rebels, Lettuce and countless others. Legions of fans are already well in the know about Hall’s copious keyboard chops and powerful vocal style. But even to them, his Feel Music/Round Hill debut solo album will be a revelation – a confirmation that Hall has stepped out front and center into a creative space to call his own.

“Ladies & Gentlemen… Nigel Hall,” due out in digital format November 13th and vinyl November 27, captures the spirit of the songs that made Hall a musician. It was produced by Eric Krasno, guitarist and producer of music by a dizzying array of artists including Norah Jones, Justin Timberlake, Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville and Matisyahu. Hall’s original compositions, from the blissful, sunny ‘60s-style soul grooves of lead single “Gimme A Sign” and “Never Gonna Let You Go” to the teasing, R&B kiss of downtempo cuts like “Too Sweet” and “Call on Me” to show off a record collector’s pitch-perfect knowledge and a lifelong fan’s passion for gritty, muscular rhythm and blues, funky dance floor rave-ups and sultry bedroom serenades.

BIG Something

We are excited to have BIG Something back in Black Rock.  These guys always bring it!!!

A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a jo...urney through a myriad of musical styles. It's no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast.

Tom Hamilton's American Babies

Straight off JRAD tour we are happy to welcome back Tom Hamilton's American Babies. This has become one of the clubs favorite bands. A not to be missed show every time. 

Advanced tickets on sale now http://tomhamiltonsbabies.bpt.me

American Babies defies easy categorization. The Philadelphia-based band shapeshifts between Americana, psych-tinged indie rock and classic rockleading them to spots opening for Bruce Hornsby, Greensky Bluegrass, the New Mastersounds and the Felice Brothers, as well as appearances at Gathering Of The Vibes, Electric Forest, Bonnaroo and the Allman Brothers-founded Peach Festival.

With such a chameleonic existence, it's unsurprising that American Babies founder/principal member Tom Hamilton's guiding creative principle is very simple: He doesn't like to repeat himself artistically. For the multi-instrumentalist, this mindset stems from a deep-seated need to always keep pushing himself as a musicianto delve into different lyrical themes and musical detours, and to explore potentially uncomfortable and unfamiliar emotional places.

Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven
Feb

8:00 pm20:00

Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven

Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven make there debut in Black Rock at The Acoustic.
Two sets of some of the most exciting music out there.

After cutting his teeth in Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and Tea Leaf Green, bassist extraordinaire Reed Mathis established himself in the Grateful Dead world with membership in Billy & The Kids, The Rhythm Devils, Mickey Hart Band, Steve Kimock Band and the Golden Gate Wingmen. But Mathis' first love was always Ludwig van Beethoven. With his new Electric Beethoven project, Mathis did the unthinkable and fused all of his worlds together, bringing old world masterpieces by Beethoven to today's premiere musical improvisers — an e...lite class of live performers who have individually made names for themselves in every genre except classical: jazz, funk, folk, blues, and jam rock.

Enlisting a total of 14 musicians, Mathis traveled to their various hometowns, recording each “movement” as a trio, with his unusual approach to the bass filling the same sonic space as virtually an entire traditional string section.

The result goes far beyond genre and brings this music back to the emotional realm that Beethoven was composing from when he initially brought these two symphonies to life. It’s music of the moment, even if that moment has been happening for more than 200 years.

Eric Krasno Band, Marcus King Band - Sold Out

SOLD OUT

Eric Krasno Band

For nearly two decades, Eric Krasno has been an omnipresent figure in popular music. We've heard his virtuosic, innovative guitar playing with Soulive and Lettuce (both of which he co-founded), seen him onstage supporting the likes of the Rolling Stones and The Roots, watched him take home multiple GRAMMY Awards, and benefited from his deft, behind-the-scenes work as a producer and songwriter for everyone from Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, and 50 Cent to Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville, and Allen Stone. Krasno's rousing new solo album, 'Blood From A Stone,' reveals a previously unknown and utterly compelling side of his artistry, though, inviting us to bear witness as he both literally and metaphorically finds his voice.

"I’ve been writing songs with vocals for other people for a while," explains Krasno, who sings for the first time on 'Blood From A Stone.' "With these songs, we initially wrote them thinking others would sing them, so when I was in the studio with different artists, sometimes I'd introduce one of the tracks and they'd record it, but it wouldn't necessarily work out. Eventually, I realized it was because I'd written these songs for myself."

It might sound strange hearing Krasno discuss the idea of "finding his voice" so deep into a career already chock full of remarkable songwriting, but as he sees it, there's something new, something intimately personal about this album that urged him to step up to the microphone for the first time. And though so much about this album feels like uncharted territory, in some ways, it brings him all the way back to his musical roots.

Marcus King Band

Songwriter. Guitarist. Singer. Bandleader.  At only 20 years of age, Marcus King’s dazzling musical ability is evident throughout The Marcus King Band, the young phenom’s 2nd full-length LP and first for Fantasy Records.  Operating within the fiery brand of American roots music that King calls "soul-influenced psychedelic southern rock," the album highlights King’s gorgeous, rough-hewn vocals, soaring guitar work and heartfelt songwriting all amidst a group of masterful musicians who, together, are quickly becoming one of the country’s most sought after live acts. 

Raised in Greenville, South Carolina, King was brought up on the blues, playing shows as a pre-teen sideman with his father—bluesman Marvin King, who himself was the son of a regionally-known guitarist—before striking out on his own. Going beyond the sonic textures of his acclaimed 2015 debut album, Soul Insight; The Marcus King Band broadens his sound, touching upon everything from funky R&B to Southern soul and Americana in the process. His band gets in on the action too, stacking the songs with blasts of swampy brass, a lock-step rhythm section and swirling organ. Ever the multi-tasker, King bounces between several instruments, handling electric and acoustic guitar — as well as pedal and lap steel — while driving each track home with his soulful, incendiary voice.

Fusing pop, rock, blues, and electronic music with intricate and spell-binding male/female duet vocals, Armies' live show is a high energy mix of club beats, poignant songwriting with nuances of the blues.

The Lawn Boys (A Tribute to Phish) (Cancelled due to snow!)

The Lawn Boys are a group of musicians dedicated to spreading the joy and music of Phish. They bring the intricate music and experimentally heady jams of Vermont's favorite jam band, Phish, while mixing in their own quirkiness. They are Phish fans that understand the audience’s critical expectation of fresh ideas and spontaneity at every performance. Whether it is a recreation of Phish’s performance or their own skew of Phish through their lenses, the Lawn Boys provide a unique and tailored perspective on Phish
