Leroy Townes
Friday - October 03, 2014

Leroy Townes is creating a new genre of music. Not Country. Not Americana. Not Rock. Not Pop. Not Folk. No sir, a carefully constructed blend of all genres that your ears shall not refuse. It doesn't matter what kind of music you like, you'll like Leroy Townes.

Forged around harmony guitar riffs and strong reaching melodies, the band has written and self-produced two records. Looking into the past while working in the present, the new album draws heavily on American Western mythology: from John Ford's deserts to Sergio Leone's cowboy operas to Cormac McCarthy's brutal wastelands. The music has been described by some as "Northern Fried Rock" and by others as "Unspecified Americana." The band alternately roars like a runaway train and bends like a river.

The Woodshed Prophets is an Americana (acoustic folk rock) band formed near Binghamton, New York in 2009. The group consists of Rob Stachyra (guitar, vocals), Dan Hardy (guitar, vocals), Ed Gliha (bass, vocals), and drummer Dan Dunham, aka Bird-Dog. These members came together from regional upstate New York groups such as Fetish Lane and Dirt Farm. Influences include Jerry Jeff Walker, Wilco, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Dick Dale & the Deltones. The Woodshed Prophets are the original purveyors of "Power-Twang!!!" Power-Twang is a high-energy mixture of rock and country music, designed to excite the ear drums and make the feet move. They have been praised for their tight harmonies, high energy and synthesis of music styles ranging from rock and country to blues and power-pop, with the occasional hint of Tex-Mex. In 2013 the Prophets released their second studio album, "Nowhere But Down," recorded with acclaimed indie producer Brad Morrison (Spiral Jetty, The Push Stars, The Sugarcubes, Graham Parker).

Big Leg Emma
Friday - October 24, 2014
8:00PM (doors open at 6:00PM)


TICKETS:
   Advanced: $18.00 / At Door: $20.00
   Members save an additional $2
   Advanced 24 hours prior



Hailing from Western New York, Big Leg Emma has infused high-quality, original, Americana roots rock with the magic and art of the Jam band realm. BLE is based on traditional folk, bluegrass and country. This gives them the catchy, dance vibe that initially will attract you. But, once you are there, and their jamming explodes through the dance vibe, they begin to take you on a musical journey with their psychedelic side. Through juggling band members, and growing into their musical skin, the new Big Leg Emma has emerged into a winding powerhouse that is creating a musical addiction to those who see them…needing to come back for more and more. Throw in some thought-provoking mystical songwriting and phenomenal harmonies and you have an incredible musical force to be reckoned with which is BLE. Big Leg Emma was born in 2001 in Jamestown, NY, and has been on many roads before leading to their current band. Long-time friends & musical partners Steve Johnson and Charity Nuse started the band, and have been a constant. Kev Rowe joined the band as lead guitar bringing an eclectic tasteful sound to Emma. After their rebirth in 2012, they added Corey Kertzie (drums) who drove the band to an even higher level with his energy and groove. Mix that with the band’s newest member, Miguel Morales (bass guitar), and you have yourself a rhythm section driving the music like a freight train. It’s this process of finding the perfect members aligned with their quest for this to be their time. Big Leg Emma has performed in many major music festivals: Finger Lakes Grassroots Music Festival, Great Blue Heron Music Festival, Bliss Festival, Silver Maple Music Fest and many others. The band has shared the stage with Rusted Root, Little Feat, Del McCoury, 10,000 Maniacs, Max Creek and Hot Tuna to name a few. They have performed in over 25 states from NY to Colorado and all the way down to the Florida Keys and Punta Cana.
