Jamestown Revival is an idea formed by Jonathan Clay & Zach Chance. For lack of a better word, it could be called a “duo”, but that just doesn’t quite capture the essence of their delivery. This band is two-man rock & roll, and the closest possible categorization one could label it with would sound something like “indie-rock with a southern slant”. Drawing on influences ranging from The Band, to Simon and Garfunkle, Jamestown Revival’s sound is harmony driven and rooted in southern soul. The two are childhood friends, and the chemistry is evident when seeing them perform. Formed in 2011, the band has already been featured on the Carson Daly Show, as well as Rolling Stone Magazine. With a self-produced EP that reached #9 on the iTunes charts, the duo has criss-crossed the country, playing everywhere from dive bars to amphitheaters.
Joining them on the 28th will be multi-instrumentalist Jeff Hobbs, bassist Marc Friedman, and Jordan Feinstein on Hammond organ!
Lonesome Locomotive is driven by remarkable songs that cut across genres and pull on many different emotional strings to create a sound that is layered, direct, and poignant. The music has a feeling of being instantly classic, fresh and danceable all at once. LL steams into jams, but is not a jam band. Their improvisations benefit from the superb musicianship of lead guitarist Brian Byrnes and bass master Mike Meagher, and are hoisted up by the driving rhythms of drummer Erin Cassidy and guitarist Michael Rosen. Together they achieve a sound that is stripped down, yet rich and strong.
Keyan Keihani is an alt-country singer-songwriter from San Francisco, CA. His debut, full-length album, "Eastbound," was produced by Michael Hurwitz (Stevie Nicks, Eddie Money) and reached #6 on the Americana charts on Amazon.com. "Eastbound" draws on the long-lost true country twang and emotion that is absent from the modern genre. The album was written with the intent of being an "album" in its true sense -- a common theme that flows seamlessly from one track to the next, telling a story. His lyrics, especially "Good Country Night", seems to draw influence from Dwight Yoakam's "Two Doors Down", but has a sound that can have parallels drawn to the Eagles' Desperado album, and a few songs by Timothy B. Schmidt.
