Watch & Listen
From the imagination of a husband and wife musical duo, blossomed a songwriting family. Since 2004, The Newbees have been producing compelling original compositions, crafted of rich harmony, improvisation, and lush string and horn orchestrations, employing vintage pop energy and rock-n-roll sensibility.
After the invention of Rock and Roll nothing really happened until the Turkeys got together. Now everything makes sense.
The Turkeys are a Folk-Rock band from Covington, KY featuring Simon & Garfunkelesque harmonies.
Shiny Old Soul
Shiny Old Soul has taken to the description “Cosmic Roots” given their fusion of a bluesey, roots driven foundation and an eclectic, unbound catalogue of original songs.
Comparisons range from Van Morrison to the Grateful Dead, the Meters, Pink Floyd, and The Decemberists, to broader things like gypsy jazz & vintage rock. Yeah, they’re one of those bands, sounding inevitably like themselves but with a bizarre tip of the hat to countless others.
But really it’s all about the songs. Bank robberies, pregnant pirates, time travelers, voodoo spells, allegory, and plain old sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, that conspire to reveal a world of simple feelings in exotic places. A broken heart by any other name. If that wasn’t wierd enough, folks really like to dance to it too.
Fans can be seen singing along to many of songwriter, guitarist Gregory Morris’ vast collection of songs, elevated by the jazz stylings of drummer Katherine Monnig and low end folk maestro Michael Sadoff. In fact, Gregory, Michael & Katherine have been playing together since 2003, formerly known as the Gregory Morris Group.
The latest SOS album (Cash is King, Jan 2012) features two charming female vocalists, Lee Schmidt, with her sultry deep water timbre, and Laura Hughes with her clear, high Nashville croon. Together they round out the 5 piece ensemble with it’s unique blend of harmony, beat and lyric, ranging from the ominous to the ridiculous, thriving on a balance of low gain and high intensity.
See You in The Funnies
This rockin’ 5-piece is well known for their catchy, groovy alt pop flavor that gets your body moving as you sing along. Hot off the release of their 2017 EP "I Know You Are, But What Am I?" the Funnies will light up your soul and warm up the stage at this show.
Sundae Drives is an Acoustic driven Soul / Pop / Hip Hop / R&B act from the east side of Cincinnati, Ohio featuring singer - songwriter Adam Lee. Known for his unique sound and intense yet intimate live performances, SD plays a raw, stripped down & creative style of music. Through unorthodox guitar playing and melodic vocals infused with organic percussion, emotional keys and slick bass lines, Sundae Drives is sure to find a place in your heart.
Called a "male Nanci Griffith" and compared to Steve Goodman, Harry Chapin and Peter Yarrow, Dave Hawkins is the songwriter's songwriter and the audience's performer. He feels equally comfortable sharing the stage with performers as diverse as Folk legend Tom Rush and Rock & Roll icon Ian Anderson as he does singing with a group of grade schoolers.
Dave Hawkins is a cross-over artist with a broad base of Folk and Celtic fans in the Midwest, New England and Western United States, as well as Europe. Dave is an accomplished musician who has led bands for over thirty years, released fourteen recordings and appeared as a special guest on seven more!
Dave has recorded and performed with the finest in the world of music - Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, Sam Bush,AoifeClancy, Joanie Madden, and John Whelan to name a few. His 6th solo release, Manchester Mornings(2005), was recorded in Nashville by multiple Grammy Award winning Producer and Engineer, Bil VornDick. The CD is still making waves in Folk, Folk-Rock and Country-Folk music circles. Both Manchester Mornings and his 2002 release Hotel deVille were under consideration for Grammy nominations and include the talents of John Mock of Nanci Griffith's band, Sam Bush, Tom Roady of the James Taylor and Aretha Franklin bands, Mark Fain and Andy Leftwich of Kentucky Thunder, Randy Kohrs of the Dolly Parton Band, Peter Huttlinger of the John Denver Band and, of course, members of his own Dave Hawkins Band. Dave's 7th full-lenght release, Best That I Can (2011) was recorded in Erlanger, KY and featured the talents of Southwestern Ohio and Kentucky artists. This recording has been receiving critical acclaim in the US and Europe.
With over fourteen recordings to his credit and seven solo albums in the past ten years, Dave Hawkins has proven himself as a recording artist and songwriter with staying power. His repertoire consists of pithy songs about loves won and lost, baseball, kids, big cities, small towns and "just because." From the jilted lover's perspective or the eyes of an old man's dog, Dave has an ear (and heart) for life's little quirks.
