MARCIA BALL

MARCIA BALL
“Rollicking, playful, good-time blues and intimate, reflective balladry…her songs ring with emotional depth” – Rolling Stone

“A welcome ray of sunshine…Ball is a killer pianist, a great singer and songwriter. Potent blues, sweet zydeco, soulful, fast and furious Texas boogie…heartfelt, powerful and righteous” – Billboard

“Fifty years have passed in a flash,” says Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist MARCIA BALL of her long and storied career. Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world. With each new release, her reputation as a profoundly soulful singer, a boundlessly talented pianist and a courageous, inventive songwriter continues to grow. Her love of the road has led to years of soul-satisfying performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs. The New York Times says, “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time.” The Houston Chronicle says simply, “She’s as perfect as an artist can be.”

STRIKING MATCHES
Aug 24 @ 9:00 pm
We met in guitar class” is not a thing many people can say…but Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis performed together for the first time on the very same day they met…in guitar class.

Fast forward, following the international success of Striking Matches’ album “Nothing But The Silence”, produced by T-Bone Burnett, and 9 songs on TV’s “Nashville”, Davis and Zimmermann continualy prove to be the band that cannot be defined by old school music row boundaries. 

For their upcoming 2019 release, they have settled in a style all their own that they’ve coined as “blues-pop” – an amalgamation of their blues and roots based guitar riffs, combined with pop melodies.

Striking Matches are gearing up for an international tour with dates in the US and UK and are releasing new music this Spring.

Josh Morningstar
Sep 5 @ 8:00 pm
Josh Morningstar is a person that lays it all out, in rhyme form, for us all. Yes, there’s been trouble in his past. Yes, there’s more than likely some more trouble in his future-trouble just seems to follow guys like him, regardless of whether its self-inflicted or by happenstance. But, somehow, he’s able to take all that trouble, all that pain, and turn it into something beautiful. This is an artist that gives everything to his art-Van Gogh cut off his ear for his muse; Morningstar cuts out pieces of himself, examines it through the eyes of a humorist with a sense of Shakespearean tragedy, and gives it to the world in three-and-a-half minute sonnets that can make you cry tears of laughter and anguish at the same time. At the same time, his sound has a bit more ‘twang’ than most folk music fans are accustomed to. It’s this live show-full of pain, laughter, reality, good times and bad-that has earned Josh Morningstar opening spots for a veritable ‘who’s who’ of country and folk music these days.
Morningstar has earned the respect of the old guard, counting many of his heroes among his admirers and friends. His friends and tour buddies with folk legend Todd Snider, an artist Morningstar is often compared to thanks to his humorous, observational storytelling-Morningstar describes his own live show as ‘half song, half stand up.’ His mentor, Billy Don Burns, has written songs for Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, Sammy Kershaw, and others. Morningstar has also toured with Waylon Jennings’ youngest son Shooter Jennings, Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare, Travis Tritt, Jason Isbell, Tyler Childers, Travis Meadows, and many others.
His dedication has been paying off-fast rising country artist Cody Jinks who has recorded a Morningstar composition-a song called ‘Must Be The Whiskey’-for his new record ‘Lifers’. “Whiskey” was released as a single and debuted at #1 on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, as well as climbing to #1 on the Texas Radio chart), and Morningstar just completed a tour with fellow folk musician Colter Wall, an artist produced by Nashville’s newest ‘go-to’ guy, Dave Cobb.
Morningstar can be known as a versatile songwriter. He has an upcoming cowriting session with hit songwriter Kendall Marvel-Marvel, a native of Southern Illinois, who has written “mainstream country” number one songs for Jake Owen and others, as well as over sixty cowrites with some guy named Stapleton. As in, Chris Stapleton.

The Temptations & The Four Tops
Oct 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Returning by popular demand, Motown legends The Temptations & The Four Tops are coming back to Charlotte for a legendary night of all their favorite hits!

For more than fifty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world.

“The crowds are bigger, the sales are sizzling,” says one industry report. “The outpouring of affection for this super-group has never been greater”.

The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine invented by Berry Gordy, The Temps began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn’t until 1964 however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do the Things You Do” turned the guys into stars.

One of Motown’s most consistent hit-makers, The Four Tops are among the most stable and consistent vocal groups.

Their first Motown hit, “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest-running chart toppers.

In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, The Four Tops were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Though they would no longer have hits on record, the group continued to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly, a towering testament to the enduring legacy of the Motown Sound they helped shape and define.
