RED ROCKIN’ CHAIR
Jun 18 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Red Rocking Chair is made up of four veteran 
musicians, each bringing his own unique approach

of making music professionally can attain. Jack 
Lawrence, Michael Reno Harrell, Tom Kuhn and 
Dale Meyer present a blend of bass, mandolin, 
guitar, Dobro, banjo, and vocals that have kept their fans coming back time and again. All that aside, their music is just plain fun to listen to at the bar in Charlotte!

THE BARBED WIRES
Jun 29 @ 9:00 pm
Bill Noonan and The Barbed Wires are Country and Western traditionalists with rock and roll tendencies: they play old fashioned C&W with a reverence for the roots, and a dynamic creative spirit. Their approach can be compared to other bands that have explored the border of C&W and rock and roll: from way-back influences like the Byrds and Gram Parsons to more contemporary acts such as the Derailers and the Hacienda Brothers. The Barbed Wires combine an extensive repertoire touching on C&W, bluegrass, blues, and rock and roll with Noonan’s catalog of top-notch original tunes. Noonan is known as former leader of the Rank Outsiders, regional favorites in the 90s and early 00s. His more recent work is reflected on two solo albums Catawba City (2006) and The Man That I Can’t Be (2009). All of the Barbed Wires: Bill Walpole (steel guitar), Joe Williams (bass), Lee Sharpe (drums) and Chris Chandek Peace (guitar) are long-time veterans of the Carolina music scene, known among players and fans alike for their musical versatility, and their energetic and highly entertaining live performances.
 
The band lineup has really just come together since the first of this year, with Lee Sharpe (Leebo) coming on board on drums, and Country Bill (Walpole) back in the mix. Chris Peace is doing a great job on guitar and harmony vocals, and there is nobody more solid than JoeW (Williams) on bass. It’s a great bunch of guys, and everybody really loves to play, so we’re excited about the possibilities…so many tunes, so little time. Leebo and Joe have been playing around town forever, but our musical circles did not overlap until fairly recently. Chris was one of my guitar students back in the 80s, he played in Sugarsmack in the 90s, but then left music for quite a few years…we reconnected about the time my last CD came out 2 years ago. Country Bill has been one of my very best compadres for many years…he played with Lenny Federal and the Federal Bureau of Rock and Roll back in the day, and we had an act for a while in the early 00s called Country and Western Bill…we hadn’t done much together over the past couple years, so it’s great to have him back on board in the Barbed Wires.

Freedom Summer Jazz Series in Freedom Park – National Jazz Keyboardist Marcus Johnson with special guest, Willie Bradley
Jul 27 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Marcus Johnson is an independent Billboard-ranked, internationally acclaimed jazz keyboardist, and NAACP Image Award Nominee.

While pursuing his JD and MBA at Georgetown, he independently produced and distributed his first CD (Lessons in Love), which sold more than 40,000 units; a phenomenal success for an unknown independent artist’s debut release. This album helped him launch his career as a renowned jazz keyboardist/pianist, and later, he released his second CD (Inter Alia), with staggering success

This success caught the attention of Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder and businessman Robert L. Johnson, who invested and partnered with Marcus to establish Marimelj Entertainment Group. Under their partnership, MEG’s label Three Keys Music housed Studio 8121, a full-service recording studio, and two music publishing companies: Marimelj Music Publishing and Three Keys Music Publishing.

As head of Three Keys Music, Johnson produced and released on the Three Keys Music label national jazz artists: Michael Lington, Jaared Arosemena, Bobby Lyle, Nick Colionne, R&B singer, Alyson Williams, neo-soul songstress, Zahzarah; and smooth jazz Saxophonists Phillip Martin and Brian Lenair.

To date, Marcus has released more than fifteen Billboard charted CDs, and has the distinction of having his groundbreaking 2008 Billboard Top 20 Contemporary Jazz FLO (For the Love Of) Anthology, which consisted of three distinct CDs — FLO Chill, FLO Romance and FLO Standards – all chart Top 10 on Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts simultaneously.

Sounds of Summer in First Ward Park – Brett Dennen w/ Emily Sage
Aug 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

First Ward Park, at 301 E 7th Street, is again hosting a FREE Americana concert series in 2019.

Sounds of Summer in First Ward Park

For the past ten years, Brett Dennen – with his poet’s perspective, off-kilter vocals, insane sense of humor, and limitless musical freedom – has turned dancing like no one’s watching into a lifestyle. As a songwriter, performer, watercolor artist, and environmental conservationist and outdoorsman, the shows he performs and the events he hosts generate more than good vibes. His impact has been to gather like-minded music fans to consistently try to make the world a better place.  
   
As a young man in Northern California, Dennen’s passion for environmental conservation and his outrage at injustice led him to work as a camp counselor for at-risk youth. There, he used music as a teaching tool. Through song, he could pull different demographics of kids together, he could communicate in a different way with those who found trouble finding their own words, and obviously…guitar + bonfire = good times.

When Brett began to pursue recording and touring professionally, neither his voice nor his intentions changed. His debut album in 2007 kickstarted a career that uses every color of the musical palate. So much so, that with each song, the ‘musical math’ to summarize his sound shifts. From Paul-Simon-meets-Bob-Marley to Violent-Femmes-meets-Buddy-Holly – it’s all there over an absolutely iridescent catalogue.  

As with any true artist, Brett’s talent surpasses music. He is an incredible painter who focuses on watercolor, a wine lover with his own vintage, and an organizer whose annual ‘Lift Series’ and ‘Vacationer Series,’ held in mountain ski towns and beaches, respectively, combine music with activities and conservation.

Here’s Looking At You Kid was released in August 2018 as the second half of a two-part EP collaboration with Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Adele, Dixie Chicks) on Downtown Records. The first EP, entitled Let’s… was released Feb. 2018 and included “Already Gone,” which rose to #3 on BDS AAA and #4 on MB AAA. The second EP, Here’s Looking At You, Kid was released in Aug. 2018.

Dennen spent 2018 headlining the US and UK, and joined Jason Mraz to support his summer North American run. Dennen recently wrapped a successful Third Annual Lift Series.

multi-instrumentalists, they blend folk, bluegrass 
and country in a way that only players with decades 
of making music professionally can attain. Jack 
Lawrence, Michael Reno Harrell, Tom Kuhn and 
Dale Meyer present a blend of bass, mandolin, 
guitar, Dobro, banjo, and vocals that have kept their fans coming back time and again. All that aside, their music is just plain fun to listen to at the bar in Charlotte!

THE LENNY FEDERAL BAND
Aug 23 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

The Lenny Federal Band Federal, formerly of the … 
wait for it … Federal Bureau of Rock ‘n’ Roll (yes!) 
was, along with his musical (com)patriots, a staple in 
the burgeoning Charlotte rock scene of the ’70s and 
early ’80s. Known for its brand of relatively 
straightforward bluesy originals and for its good taste 
in classic cover tunes, the Federal Bureau always 
resisted making the move to the Allman Brothers-like 
sound so many of their Caucasian compatriots did, 
in favor of keeping it simple. Federal, a cornerstone cog in the Charlotte music scene, hasn’t changed that recipe a whole lot of the years. Forgive the food metaphor, but it’s musical meat and potatoes you’re getting here – meat and potatoes slow-cooked with plenty of care, and with but a soupcon of spice. Appearing at The Comet Grill (Timothy C. Davis) a cornerstone cog in the Charlotte music scene, hasn’t changed that recipe a whole lot of the years.

RED ROCKIN’ CHAIR
Aug 27 @ 8:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Red Rocking Chair is made up of four veteran 
musicians, each bringing his own unique approach 
to the music they present. An acoustic quartet of 
multi-instrumentalists, they blend folk, bluegrass 
and country in a way that only players with decades 
of making music professionally can attain. Jack 
Lawrence, Michael Reno Harrell, Tom Kuhn and 
Dale Meyer present a blend of bass, mandolin, 
guitar, Dobro, banjo, and vocals that have kept their fans coming back time and again. All that aside, their music is just plain fun to listen to at the bar in Charlotte!
