The Shana Blake Band at Smokey Joe’s Cafe
Jun 20 @ 10:00 pm – 11:30 pm

The Shana Blake Band is an innovative new take on the old soul cover band. The ensemble hails from Charlotte, North Carolina and features singer/songwriter Shana Blake (The Near Misses, Wavy Space, Tesser), veteran guitarist Keith Shamel (Virgo Musik, Daily Soul), bassist Dave Eatman (Bellyful, Automatic Chi) and drummer/percussionist Scott Newell (Vonce, Justice League). The expressive vocals and rich textures of the instrumentation fuse coherently to create a sound that’s as smooth as honey, with a hint of R&B, funk, reggae, southern rock, gospel, country, jazz and the blues. The repertoire covers the gamut from emotionally-charged ballads to energetic, danceable grooves. The song choices are anything but ordinary and, along with the original compositions, appeal to a broad spectrum of listeners. An evening with Shana Blake & Pivotal Soul is like a breath of fresh air. Funky fresh air.

AJ Ghent [ j-ent ]

“… high-energy romp through gospel, soul and funk-infused landscapes…” – Relix 

AJ Ghent [ j-ent ] and his Singing Guitar are all about positive energy: musically, physically and spiritually. He takes his family’s heirloom that was created in the 1930s, the ‘Sacred Steel Tradition” and brings it to a broader audience. Continuing in his family tradition, AJ can literally make his guitar sound like a voice. AJ and his Singing Guitar have reached millions worldwide through viral videos.

Over the years, this fireball has shared music with Zac Brown, Dave Grohl, and legendary freeform artist, Colonel Bruce Hampton. From the church to the streets, AJ’s latest creation, THE NEO BLUES PROJECT, released March, 2018, debuted #7 on Billboard Blues Charts in the first week of the release. This project is filled with everything that it should be: grooves, riffs and above all, message.

PRÓXIMA PARADA w/ Little Bird
Jul 20 @ 9:00 pm
PRÓXIMA PARADA
Próxima Parada blends soulful melody with hard-hitting rhythm into a sound distinctly their own. They’ve released several full-length albums independently and, with new songs written, are preparing to record their next.

Starting in 2012 as a group of college friends wanting to extend their dynamic to their community in San Luis Obispo, CA, they never dreamed that their passion would reach a global audience through being placed on Spotify playlists, that they’d perform at beautiful historic venues and music festivals, that their songs would earn awards, that their music would soothe and uplift people around the world. Their last single, Time In A Circle, currently has over 1.1 million plays on Spotify alone.

Próxima Parada is Nick Larson (vocals, keys, guitar), Kevin Middlekauff (bass), Josh Collins (guitar), and Aaron Kroeger (drums).

New members Ben Mossman (Bass), Oleg Terentiev (Drums), Noah Jones (Piano) have joined originators Jay Hurtt (Guitar/Vocals) and James Rubush (Guitar) to create the sound heard on Familiar, and continue to develop their sound with material set to be released in 2019. Familiar was released in April 2018, recorded with Engineer/Producers Shane Woods, and Jeff Lucci (Mo Lowda & the Humble) recorded at Headroom Studios (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2017. 

Formed originally in 2014 as the brainchild of Jay and James, the group began began relentlessly touring throughout the East Coast in early 2017 on the heels of their self-produced record ‘Groove’ (2015). The early and new sounds of the band landed them gigs performing and headlining festivals such as Silopanna, EastPortaRockin’, Savannah Stopover along with sharing bills with the likes of G. Love & Special Sauce, Zach Deputy, Boy Named Banjo, Jimmies Chicken Shack, The Hip Abduction, Caroline Rose, Stop Light Observations, Mo Lowda & the Humble and many more.
