* ELI COOKELI COOK

Time: 7:00 pm

*Complimentary cake, champagne and visual arts demonstration 6:00-7:00 PM Tickets: $15 in advance - $20 at door With his super slick slide guitar sound and a husky voice that is heartfelt, this young bluesman has opened many times for B.B. King among others. Eli Cook was christened “the best blues singer of his generation” by All Music Guide, and is featured in Vintage Guitar Magazine. Eli was born in the mountains of Virginia, growing up with no TV. He picked up the guitar at age 13 and within two years he was playing for gospel revivals and in local “juke joints.” At 18, with his bone-shaking growl and bonafide blues guitar chops, he was hailed by fans and critics as a torch bearer for a slew of historical players, from Son House and Leadbelly to Chris Smither and Rory Block. As the country sounds of Appalachia crept in Eli didn’t flinch. “It didn’t seem unnatural,” says Cook, who was the product of a rural Southern upbringing where people moved easily between genres. “It’s what was around me, and I just tried to pick up on everything and everybody, including Doc Watson and Chet Atkins. In fact, hearing Chet fingerpick made me realize I didn’t need a band.” (Source: Guitar Player 2007) His debut Moonshine Mojo in 2004 contained choice classic blues covers. In 2007 both the scalding, blues-rocking Electricholyfirewater and the all-original acoustic Miss Blues’es Child made their appearance. Following were Static in the Blood (2009), an outside-the-box studio production mixing R&B and rock, Ace, Jack & King (2011), a grunge blues blast, and the all-original, explosive trio recording Primitive Son (2014) with star-studded cameos. He has toured to national acclaim, holding his own in the company of blues royalty B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Shemekia Copeland and Gary Clark, Jr. In 2015 he was voted #3 on the prestigious UK Blues Matters Writer’s Poll for Favorite International Blues Solo Artist. Cook’s most recent release, High-Dollar Gospel “…catches fire and respects the traditions… Cook’s righteous vocals and anthemic guitar work proves this 31-year-old can play with the best.” – Glide Magazine

* THE ACCIDENTALS THE ACCIDENTALS

Time: 7:00 pm

Tickets: $15 in advance - $20 at door Female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies, FOX Sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial. They released their latest single, "Heavy Flag," produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Ray, The Decemberists) in October, and they aren’t slowing down. They are currently scoring an indie film, touring, teaching workshops across the country, and releasing new music. PopMatters says you can’t define them by comparison to any one band, comparing them to a mash up of influences including, “The Beatles, Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Led Zeppelin, Ani Difranco, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, etc." NPR says “they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression,” adding, “they might be the most compelling songwriters of our time."

* DANIKA AND THE JEB DANIKA AND THE JEB

Time: 7:00 pm

Tickets: $15 in advance - $20 at door Danika and Jeb are taking stages of all sizes by storm - having opened for mainstream heavyweights such as Lyle Lovett, Dierks Bentley, Phil Vassar, Tracy Lawrence, and others, to being named 2016 Artists of the Year from Concerts in your Home. Their soulful and intoxicating sound lures in new fans daily. If when you hear the term ‘acoustic duo’ you imagine two people sitting on stools, lightly strumming guitars, singing about how life has treated them poorly, think again. Danika & the Jeb are dynamic, uplifting, and fun, while their music is a soulful combination of artfully written songs and powerful musical phrasing. When asked about why she has never applied to American Idol, Danika says “I never looked at the music industry like a lottery. I don’t need to buy a ticket. I simply need to be an artist.” Danika’s belief is that a well written song can embody all emotions of the human existence, and she articulates that beautifully with her slightly raspy yet warm voice and truthful lyrics. Grand-nephew to the great country guitarist Clyde Moody, Jeb Hart can craft a story with six strings. Despite a car accident that left him unable to play for several years, Jeb’s determination to overcome prevailed. After listening to Jeb perform, the two most common responses from fans are “The best guitar player I’ve ever heard” and “It sounds like there’s two of him.”

Full of delightfully demented humor, this campy musical comedy promises a night of gleeful gore with a pop/rock score by Tony Award winner Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, featuring songs like "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green," "Feed Me" and "Suddenly, Seymour." This production is directed by Marcy Miller with musical direction by Murry Holmstrom and choreography by Susie Brown. *Due to some mature thematic material including comic horror violence, this show may not be appropriate for young children.
