Maggie Koerner- CD Release Show

Maggie Koerner- CD Release Show

Maggie celebrates the release of her new album "Neutral Ground" with this special show.
Regular tickets are $5* or purchase a "combo ticket" which includes entry to the show and a copy of the new CD for just $10*!

Regarding the album:
"Koerner's voice on her second album Neutral Ground is heavier than ever, cutting through the thickest humidity New Orleans can offer. It's a voice she can hurl like a beer pitcher or sling like a silk shawl, and one made whole by the accompaniment of her gang of fellows. A gospel-drenched, rocking blues collection of Deep South chants, Maggie Koerner's new collection of songs emanate a supernatural vibe and sweet ozone, calling for a live performance that matches its seductive heat."

"Shreveport, Louisiana native, Maggie Koerner, is a 25-year-old singer/songwriter with some “soul to slap in your face,” she says. This Catholic choir girl turned soul singer enjoys wailing the nastiness when asked politely, but it's the rawness of her voice and the honesty in her lyrics that really connects Koerner with listeners. Koerner thanks New Orleans for much of her inspiration and success. Writing and playing with local musicians such as The Revivalists, Kristin Diable and Flow Tribe opened doors for this new, emerging artist."

Nick Peraino & the Ovorols

A native New Englander, Nick Peraino moved to Chicago in 1998 to pursue studies in jazz guitar at DePaul University. A strong passion for blues music was a deciding factor in choosing to attend college in Chicago.

Nick toured extensively throughout the Midwest in 2003-2004 promoting his post-college roots-rock band Nick Peraino and Blue Moon Risin'. He also wrote and produced their debut album Noisy Picks and Humbars. In 2005 he began playing alongside local Chicago underground blues legend Joanna Connor. He continued to perform locally and tour nationally with The Joanna Connor Band where they played regularly scheduled shows at Chicago’s Buddy Guy's Legends, Kingston Mines, and The House of Blues.

In 2009 Peraino was personally invited by Grammy Award winning harmonica legend Sugar Blue to join a two week tour of Europe to perform in a number of showcase events.

Nick is co-owner of Dr. Fretgood Inc. in Chicago where he repairs, designs, and builds custom guitar amplifiers. If you catch a live show you will most certainly hear him playing one of his custom boutique tube amps (Fretgood Amps).

In 2011 Peraino’s shift from sideman to frontman was realized through a shift in consciousness. A seemingly bad turn of events led to a positive shift in Peraino’s outlook on life. An unfortunate visit to the emergency room in February of 2011 led to Peraino’s diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease. He came upon newfound confidence and a burning desire to become a band leader. Shortly after forming NICK and the ovorols in the late summer of 2011 he held a residence of his own at Kingston Mines from December of 2011 to April of 2012. Kingston Mines MC Frank Pellegrino is calling Nick “one of the best young, up and coming talents.” In February the band decided to record one of their weekly Wednesday night shows and the album Live at Kingston Mines was born.
