Please come show your support for Dave and MorganEve by attending this great bill of Roots Rockers who are donating their time to help out a friend and fellow musician.

Joe Fletcher And The Wrong Reasons

Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons is an Americana band that began in Providence, RI in 2005. In the center of this revolving cast of musicians, songwriter Joe Fletcher remains at the helm of this country blues-based outfit while still playing many solo acoustic shows throughout the land every year.

Sometime in 2007, the band recorded their debut album BURY YOUR PROBLEMS at the rather mysterious Golden Monkey Studio in the heart of Providence's Smith Hill neighborhood. Details of this event remain murky though it has been corroborated that sound experts Jay Berndt and Matt Oliva oversaw a assortment of musicians which included legends Jack Hanlon, Greg "J.D." Burgess, Dennis Kelly, and Dale Cunningham. We do know that the record received overwhelmingly positive reviews and Fletcher's story-driven songwriting began catching national attention earning comparisons to Cash, Cave, Cohen, and Dylan.

Proud Flesh

"The Proud Flesh’s music is so organic it's almost tangible, just waiting to be plucked from the night air and placed in your hand" -

Elison Jackson

Elison Jackson is a garage-folk/stoner-soul band from New Haven, CT that has self-released two records. The band's 2011 release, "Spectral Evidence", was praised as having a "dark, almost supernatural vibe (" with "songs like half-remembered memories or stories from a distant lifetime (Symbiotic Reviews)". The band plans to release an EP on 12" vinyl in summer 2012.

"I believe that this may be one of the next great bands to emerge literally out of nowhere...they may have captured their own genre." -From Under The Basement
