Samantha Fish with Special Guest Matt Keen

Over the course of her career as an award-winning artist, singer/songwriter/guitarist Samantha Fish has brought extraordinary power to her self-expression, capturing her inner world in combustible riffs, visceral rhythms, and spine-tingling vocal work. For Fish, one of the greatest joys of making music is the powerful exchange of energy at her incendiary live shows. “I fell in love with music from going to shows, and I know how cathartic it can be. It heals your heart,” she says. “Anytime I play live, I just want to want to make people forget about everything else in the world and feel that same joy that I feel on stage.”

Freddy Jones Band

For more than three decades, Freddy Jones Band has been one of America’s most noteworthy and revered roots rock acts. In 2022/23, the band will mark the 30th Anniversary of their biggest hit, “In a Daydream,” which topped the AAA charts at #1 in the mid-90’s. To commemorate the milestone, Freddy Jones Band will release a brand new version of the song in mid-2022!

Despite the band’s name, none of the members are named Freddy Jones. Freddy Jones Band is fronted by founding member, guitarist, and songwriter Marty Lloyd, who is joined by an all-star lineup that includes longtime band member and noted bassist, Rich Ross, who has also spent many years touring with The Samples.

In addition to “In a Daydream,” Freddy Jones Band is known for other popular singles including “Take the Time,” “One World,” and many others. The band’s most recent release, “Never Change,” was produced by three-time Grammy-winning producer and engineer Justin Niebank (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley). Niebank stated that “Never Change” was “the best record I’ve worked on in years.”

Freddy Jones Band is currently touring to promote the 30th Anniversary of “In a Daydream,” as well as the release of their newest single, “Connected.” Another new single from Freddy Jones Band, “Mirror Ball,” will be released before the end of 2022!

POSTPONED: A Flock Of Seagulls

A Flock Of Seagulls may well be known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as much as their hit single ‘I Ran’. A Flock of Seagulls were one of prime movers in the 80’s new wave era. Growing out of the synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish new romantic movement. Hairdresser Mike Score (lead vocals, keyboards) formed A Flock of Seagulls with his brother Ali (drums) and fellow hairdresser Frank Maudsley (bass) in 1980, adding guitarist Paul Reynolds several months later. The group released its debut EP on Bill Nelsons Cocteau Records early in 1981, and while the record failed to chart, its lead track, ‘Telecommunication,’ became an underground hit in Euro-disco and new wave clubs.

The group had a string of international hit singles including “I Ran (So Far Away)” “Space Age Love Song”, “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)”, and “The More You Live, the More You Love”. Their video for “I Ran (So Far Away)” received airplay on MTV during the Second British Invasion. The band won a Grammy Award in 1983 for their instrumental “D.N.A.”.

In 2018 the members of the original lineup came together to record an album with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra entitled Ascension.

POSTPONED: The Gilmour Project – Pink Floyd Tribute, Rescheduled Date TBA

The Gilmour Project was poised and ready to launch in April 2020, then the world hit the pause button. They re-emerge in 2021 pivoting to David Gilmour’s Pink Floyd repertoire. The songs that compel exploration & improvisation are mainly Gilmour’s and this rendition certainly does not dismiss the iconic contributions of all 5 historic musicians that comprise the Pink Floyd complement. The Gilmour Project incorporates musicians whose background is both prog(ressive) AND improvisational, and is the only band since Blue Floyd in 2000, endeavoring to take these songs ‘OUT,’ speaking in jazz protocol, without disregarding the cherished classic hooks, licks & musical phrases.

Acclaimed musicians Jeff Pevar (lead guitar with CSN, David Crosby, Phil Lesh, Ray Charles) and Prairie Prince (co founder of The Tubes, & drums with Todd Rundgren, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh), Kasim Sulton (bass & vocals with Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Meatloaf & Blue Oyster Cult), Mark Karan (guitar & vocals with Bob Weir, RatDog, The Other Ones), and Scott Guberman (keyboard & vocals with Phil Lesh), are more than psyched to bring you the initial installment of The Gilmour Project.
