$15 ADV $20 DOS. Tickets go on sale soon!

Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Nappyness: In an economically recessed climate, Nappy Roots has joined the rest of the nation in trying to understand and work through financial and emotional struggles. No stranger to challenges, this four-man collective from Kentucky tackled their obstacles and, in the process, their self-honest work emerged in form of 5 studio albums and 10 mix-tapes. As usual, Nappy Roots examine our alienable rights, reason, and truth through lyrical originality and voyage.

Since Nappy Roots entered the music scene in 1998, they have remained real, humble, talented guys with inherent, undeniable southern swagger. After the international success of Watermelon, Chicken, & Grits, selling over 3 million albums, the members of Nappy Roots were flying high while still acutely aware of how far it could be to the bottom should they fall. It is that practical and genuine presence of mind that helped them sustain touring as a group these last ten years. Building a vastly loyal fan-base nationwide, fans and friends can be used interchangeably when referring to their army of followers.

For most people, it is normal to only share intimate moments with friends, but for the members of Nappy, it is no different when in their living room, studio, or on stage, as they possess the gift of honesty and deliver that message with charisma. That truthfulness is especially reflected in this compilation inspired and written for this moment in time.

After severing ties with Atlantic Record and going independent, it was inevitable change was his own for solo efforts. Nappy Roots had no choice but to keep it moving and did so as smoothly as possible. As the saying goes, “the show must go on,” and so it has, obstacles included.

With a heavy heart and no major label record deal, Nappy Roots knew they had to remain in pursuit of their destiny and, thus, Nappy Roots Entertainment Group was formed. The members of Nappy Roots were facing foreclosures and a mountain of stress in the jobless economy, but still they remained positive and pushed on, while never forgetting where they came from and what they had accomplished. With fans constantly communicating with the members online and at shows, the guys realized they weren’t the only ones having trouble.

With the release of their tenth mix-tape “SH!T’S BEAUTIFUL” and the departure of Big V from the group, as he left to pursue a solo career, Nappy Roots forges forward. Between touring and recording, the four-man group focuses on consistently putting out quality hip-hop.

A weak man with no vision, no diligence behind the vision, and no faith behind the diligence would have given up, but Skinny Deville, Fishscales, B. Stille and Ron Clutch did, can, and will handle this and more, all in the name of Nappy Roots.

Kris Lager Band
Jan 23 @ 9:00 pm – 1:30 am

Free show!

Kris Lager Band has been hard at work for over a decade spreading and honing their Revivalist Rock, Heavy Soul & Boogie Trance music across the country. When it comes to energetic and heartfelt live music performances KLB is second to none. They have worked with, toured, and recorded alongside some of the industries finest. All the while managing to avoid the pitfalls of the road and the rock’n’roll lifestyle that far to often derail a band on the verge of breaking out.

Their new album ‘Heavy Soul & Boogie Trance’ is a continuation to their ever exploring musical tastes and approach. An all analog and mostly live recording produced by Kelly Finnigan & Ian McDonald of Monophonics fame features their trademark lo-fi sound. The record was recorded in the bay area at Transistor Studios and mixed by Sergio Rios of the stellar funk ensemble, Orgone. It is a powerful statement of road life, love & romance, a splash of social commentary, and a few old fashioned fun jams. All tied together with heavy guitar grooves, funky drums, thick keys, and powerful bass.

The record is a follow up to their Tab Benoit produced recording Platte River Runaway which showcases a more laid back and bluesy effort. The Louisiana legend helped bring to life a strong bluesy and country side that hasn’t been showcased very often from these troubadours. The recording was conceived after a swamp ride off of the Intercostal Canal of Louisiana’s bayou. Tab believed that if they were going to make a record together they’d first have to get a little taste of the swamp and experience treeverb. The sound of the music reverberating off of the water and the cypress trees. Which Tab mimics on one of the key tracks ‘Slow Down’. Through that boat ride and ‘near death experience’ another KLB live staple came to life, ‘Sunshine On The Bayou’

KLB is spearheaded by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Kris Lager, who rips out face melting solos and hypnotic riffs. Jeremiah Weir on keyboards and percussions is the perfect melodic counterpart and always brings the high holiness to the stage. The backbeat of the band is brought to you by freestyle extraordinaire John Fairchild, who has logged seven years with the group and is a tour de force on the kit. Brandon Miller rounds out the ensemble on bass with a solid low end that holds it all together and a high kick Chuck Norris would be proud of.

Canyon Kids Duo
Jan 26 @ 9:00 pm – 1:30 am

Canyon Kids now have two full length LPs under their belt, and according to Jackson Hole Music Blog they “embody a production aesthetic rare to the regional scene” and have “a vocal sound that equates to the smoothness of several coats of fine varnish on an old wooden boat.” It is this sound that has garnered Canyon Kids supporting slots with some of the country’s best national touring acts, including The Suffers, G Love & The Special Sauce, Euforquestra, Nahko & Medicine for the People, Lukas Nelson, and the Infamous Stringdusters. But don’t worry, the Canyon Kids are no strangers to some heavy rock n’ roll..because like the river they came from, it can be gentle, but it also has serious bite.”

Canyon Kids continues to play in their home base of Jackson, Wyoming, and you can expect to catch them playing festivals around the rocky mountain region! Come see Bo & Dusty tonight!

The Nth Power
Jan 31 @ 9:00 pm – 1:30 am

Always one of our most anticipated shows!

$10 DOS

Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power is on a mission to share the light. Formed during an impromptu late-night jam at Jazz Fest 2012 in New Orleans, the relentlessly funky and soulful band believes in music as a higher power — tapping into an energy that is simultaneously sexy and spiritual, with songs that will inspire audiences to dance, groove, make love or just stand there with goose bumps.

The quintet hails from diverse musical backgrounds, races and creeds. Female powerhouse Nikki Glaspie was Beyonce’s world-touring drummer for five years before she joined Ivan Neville’s New Orleans funk outfit, Dumpstaphunk. Bassist Nate Edgar of Groovechild and John Brown’s Body perfectly compliments Singer and Guitarist Nick Cassarino who came from the Jennifer Hartswick Band and toured with Big Daddy Kane. Next add West African Master-Percussionist, Weedie Braimah to the mix with his insurmountable world beat rhythms. Finally rounding off the ensemble is the newest and youngest member, Courtney J’Mell Smith who brings his soulful vocals and keyboard abilities to the table.

“Just know that when you hear this music, you’re going to feel something — you’re going to connect with something higher than yourself,” explains Braimah.

The Nth Power’s 2013 independent EP, Basic Minimum Skills Test, showcases a first glimpse of the spark shared among the group, delivering gospel-style vocals with soul, jazz, funk and world-beat riffs in nearly mathematical fashion.

“It’s my dream team,” said Glaspie. “Each one of us is a songwriter, so when we get together, everything becomes that much stronger.” Beyond raw skill, however, Glaspie cites a deep spiritual connection as the glue that binds them together. “Music is what brought us together, but it’s the spiritual bond that makes us play so in touch with each other,” she explained.

And at the core of their vibe is a deviously simple concept — the healing power of love.

Following The Nth Power’s 2013 debut, their inspirational sets floored audiences at music festivals like Electric Forest, Bear Creek, Catskill Chill and North Coast Music Festival. In just the last six months, the group has performed more than 50 shows in 21 states across the US, and made their second international appearance at Australia’s Caloundra Music Festival on their 2014 “Fall In Love Tour.”

Although the band members are based across the East Coast, they maintain New Orleans as their “spiritual home,” and the celebratory essence of that city’s music culture is audible in each performance.

In September 2015, The Nth Power will release their first full-length studio album, Abundance. The studio version of the album’s lead single “Only Love” will debut in June 2015 and promises a soul-surrendering groove steeped in fellowship among all who hear it. They have a live recording of this song already in regular rotation on Sirius XM Radio’s “Jam On” station.

Simply put, there is something pretty magical happening in this band, and they’re only just getting started. “We’re going as far as you can go on the planet Earth and playing music,” explains Glaspie. “I don’t know how many times we’ve said it — we are so blessed.”
