Front Country February 28th SOLD OUT!

This West Coast outfit was just a group of friends playing a monthly gig until 2012 and 2013 when Front Country gathered around a single microphone at the RockyGrass and Telluride festivals, and won first prize in those prestigious band contests that once launched the careers of the Dixie Chicks, Greensky Bluegrass and the Steep Canyon Rangers. The contest wins bolstered their confidence in their unique mix of original songwriting, vocal harmonies and instrumental virtuosity, steeling their resolve to take a leap of faith and become a full time touring band.  Check out their article in November 2017 issue of Rolling Stone!
Their latest Album "Other Love Songs"  is Front Country’s first record relying on lead singer Melody Walker’s songwriting, first and foremost. With 8 of the 12 tracks penned by Walker, and the two instrumentals composed by mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz, it is their most original body of work yet. Round out the intensely creative band arrangement style of guitarist Jacob Groopman, bassist Jeremy Darrow and five-string violinist Leif Karlstrom, and the synergy is electric.  All together, the majority of the songs are quite emotional in nature and tend toward relationship themes, sometimes with a twist, hence the title Other Love Songs. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door and can be purchased here

Joan Crawford, in her most famous role, plays the title character in this Film about a single mother who struggles to support her daughters, the spoiled social climber Veda played by Ann Blyth and tomboy Kay.

Garrett Lebeau March 30th in the Radio Room

Garrett Lebeau is a member of the Shoshone tribe and was born and raised on The Wind River Reservation near Lander, Wyoming. Raised in an apocalyptic religious cult that kept members shunning the outside world, Garrett led a life sequestered from other people. This experience, along with living in a very remote and isolated environment, has influenced his music. Garrett is a self-taught musician who began learning to play the guitar as an adult and admits the process of his learning to play was a slow one. He is an accomplished songwriter, and his vocals has been compared to Boz Scaggs, Al Green, and Van Morrison, accompanied by a style of guitar playing that is uniquely his own.  Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door and can be purchased here
