BEN SPARACO AND THE NEW EFFECT
May 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Ben Sparaco and The New Effect formed in 2017 when Florida-born singer, songwriter, and guitarist began playing with drummer Anthony Quirk and bassist Adam Discipio. Now based in the flourishing musical oasis of Nashville, TN, Ben and the band have maintained a massive touring schedule, cutting their teeth playing coast to coast in clubs and festivals.

Sparaco spent his teen years making a name for himself in the jam scene of the southeast, playing with members of the Allman Brothers Band, Dead and Company, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and more before he had even turned 21. This included a touring stint in late Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks’ band. After recording his 2016 release “Bring the Jubilee EP” with a Florida-based group of musicians, he moved to Nashville. There, he amassed a group of some of Nashville’s finest to record his debut solo record “Wooden” with producer Ross Holmes (Mumford and Sons, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes), which also featured a guest appearance from Luther Dickinson.

After finalizing The New Effect’s powerful lineup with Berklee College of Music graduates Quirk and Discipio, Sparaco’s songwriting started drifting from his southern rock roots, showing indie rock, new wave, and pop influences, evident on the EP “Greetings, from Ben Sparaco and The New Effect.” Following this with the single “Scared of The Dark” in the fall of 2018, Sparaco and his band have earned glowing press reviews, further establishing themselves as up and comers to watch in the indie rock world.

TEMP JOB:
TEMP JOB is an eclectic 8 piece band based in Knoxville, Tn who perform music inspired by 70s funk, 80s New Wave, and modern hip hop.

Indigo De Souza:
Asheville pop rock

GASP:
‘One foot in the grave, the other dancing wildly about’– serves as a sort of GASP manifesto. A dark litany of worldly cares and psychic damage recounted across an existentialist cocktail of post-punk funk, the dark underbelly of Americana, a veritable bouquet of avant-garde influences, and an eight-limbed percussion section form the core of their baroque new-wave sound.

RED WANTING BLUE
May 30 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Hailed as “Midwestern rock heroes” by American Songwriter, Red Wanting Blue has spent the last twenty years establishing themselves as one of the indie world’s most enduring and self-sufficient acts, notching appearances everywhere from Letterman to NPR and reaching #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, all while operating largely outside the confines of the traditional music industry. For their powerful new album, ‘The Wanting,’ the band handed production duties over to acclaimed singer/songwriter Will Hoge, who helped them create their most ambitious, fully realized collection yet. Recorded in Nashville, TN, the record draws on many of the group’s traditional strengths—indelible melodies, infectious hooks, explosive performances—even as the making of it pushed them far outside their comfort zone and forced them to take an unprecedented, nearly year-long break from touring.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When: Thursday, May 30
  • Time: 7:00pm – 10:00pm
  • Location: River Jam Stage
  • Cost: Free and open to the public
  • Weather: Events are scheduled to proceed rain or shine.  In the event of severe weather, the USNWC reserves the right to reschedule/cancel live music performances.

SPIRIT SYSTEM w/ Cheveron, VIA
May 31 @ 10:00 pm – Jun 1 @ 2:00 am
Spirit System:
Spirit System initially began in 2013 as a recording project between Laurie Ruroden (vox, bass, efx) and Eric Gilstrap (gtrs, synth, efx) to reconnect as songwriters after the breakup of their former noise pop band, Telltale. After relocating from Brooklyn, New York to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in the spring 2014 they had fleshed the band out by adding another member, Gary Guthrie (drums, smplr, synth). Spirit System then took a break from regional touring to begin recording their debut album with Jeff Berner (Psychic TV, NAAM) at GaluminumFoil Productions in Brooklyn. At the beginning of the summer 2015, Spirit System released the EP ‘Afterblume’, 4 tracks containing the outtakes of their forthcoming debut full length, ‘Nightfalling’, due to be released March 2016.
Cheveron: Aural assault for your curious mind.
VIA: Many years ago, a boy and a girl met in a small West Texas town. The girl, a long time musician, and the boy, who had never made music ever before, decided to cultivate a sound together. Some years later, they made a move to another small town in North Carolina where they planned to grow themselves and their music. On this small mountain top where they lived, their sound grew, matured, and evolved into what it is now. The rest is still being written…

Cal Maro

Cal Maro

Brooklyn-based Singer-Songwriter / Producer Cal Maro sits comfortably and confidently in the pocket of Neo-Soul and Contemporary R&B, gently layering soulful melodies over head-nodding grooves, implementing dynamics of both live and electronic production.
Cal Maro has been performing around New York, creating new material, and working as a writer, producer, and engineer on projects for other artists. His lauded debut album Cal Maro (2016) has been followed by multiple single track releases within the past year, with more anticipated to come. His recent work as a producer has included the Too Glam EP (October 2018) from the alternative band Yank (North Carolina – https://yanktheband.bandcamp.com/) and the debut, self-titled album (May 2019) from the pop-indie group Meyru (Brooklyn – https://www.meyrumusic.com/), as well as featured vocals on tracks of various artists and producers.

“This definitely is an example of the magnificent new brand of soul music being created. ‘Coco Pt. 2’ is up there with one of the best drops of 2019 yet.” – Fashionably-Early

Meyru

Meyru

Meyru is a New York City rock band with a fresh take on nostalgic indie rock. Made up of two cousins and their lifelong friend, the group plans to release their debut album “Good To See You” in early 2019. The crew’s indie pop melodies, bolstered by intricate guitar leads and driving bass were quickly grasped by local crowds leading to a series of sold out shows at NYC Venues such as Mercury Lounge, The Bowery Electric, Pianos, and The Bitter End. After becoming known for their energetic live shows the band spent a month in the mountains of North Carolina where they recorded their debut album in the basement of an abandoned church with the help of Brooklyn based producer, Tyler Brown (Cal Maro), and mastering engineer, Dan Millice (A$AP Rocky, Al Green, 50 Cent). The band is currently gearing up to tour the rest of the country.

‘Meyru’s new track ‘Running Day Dreams” meshes an Interpol-like post-punk presence with a grunge-friendly vocal feel, resulting in a bustling and melodic effort that shows the NYC rockers’ numerous strengths’ – Obscure Sound

JARED & THE MILL
Jul 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

We’re 5 best friends from Arizona. We love the desert, we love its mountains, we love our city, its people, and we love each other. We love long drives, early mornings, late nights, dive bars, carne asada Tacos at 3 am, dirty jokes, and asking each other what we think about things. We’re just as likely to get down on Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan as we are Van Halen, Kendrick Lamar, and The Weeknd. We love dogs, we love our van, we love playing music together, and we love you – it’s true. For the past few years, we’ve released records and pretty much always been on tour, hitting the road on our own, with fellow bands, and have been lucky enough to open for a few heroes. From living rooms and basement clubs, to theaters and arenas, we just love playing shows, and truly love being on the road.

Our fans (the pack) are our greatest priority – we love them, we really do, and we do our best to insure them that we can’t do this without them. Our message is one of acceptance, not in a circle sitting kumbaya way, but in a way of acknowledging that we all have things we regret, we all have passions and opinions, and it’s up to all of us to filter through our flaws and our regrets to find ourselves and love one another. Don’t judge other people, do your best to have a good time in life, and care about everybody, like EVERYBODY everybody. Our shows are rowdy, you’ll break down your walls and realize you’re not in this alone. We hope you come to a show, make our songs apart of your story, and live the best life you can.

Cheers,

Jared & The Mill
