Live Music Week of March 4 to 10, 2013

Standard

3/11/13     The Time Jumpers     3rd and Lindsley

I have spoken about this group before. They used to be at the Station Inn every Monday but they’ve moved to 3rd and Lindsley and are a veritable who’s who of  the best musicians Nashville has to offer. (Does that sentence make sense or am I getting too fancy?) They are really good is what I am trying to say.  Country, swing, jazz and pop.  They play it all and you just never know if a famous person might show up and sit in if that’s your thing. 

3/12/13   The Sixth Annual Jeffrey Steele & Friends       Franklin Theatre 

If it involves Jeffrey Steele it’s going to “rock”!  I’ll give a shout out to my friend Stevie C. who plays guitar for Jeffrey but just go cause you will know at the very least one song this hit writer will mostly likely perform AND Billy Ray Cyrus will be there…what?  Seriously I actually opened for Billy Ray and he was one of  the most gracious “stars” I have ever met, yes I know I haven’t met many but he treated his fans like gold.  I can’t say that for everyone I have opened for. 

3/13/13          C.J. Watson and friends     Bluebird Cafe    

I met C.J. on one of my very first trips to Nashville a gazillion years ago where he hosted a writer’s night at a hotel off of Trinity Lane.  C.J. is one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met and writes GREAT songs.  He won’t have any slouchers in his round either I can tell you that! 

3/14/13     Beegie Adair    F. Scott’s 

I was going to send you to the Bluebird again to see Kim McLean but then I thought I needed to mix it up and add some really sweet jazz to the list.  The restaurant is a little pricey but it’s supposed to be tasty.  It’s definitely a classy joint but you will hear some fantastic fairly traditional jazz in the heart of Green Hills…who woulda thunk it?

3/16/13     Cabaret     TPAC

Due to high demand this musical was extended but this is really the last night so let’s not miss it.

3/16/13     Alison Krauss, Tony Lane, Jimmy Rankin and Gordie Sampson     Marathon Music Works

Okay, I always need to mention one Canadian act in this blog each week. It’s amazing how many of them walk among us here in Music City U.S.A.  No Alison is not Canadian (just really cool and talented like many of us.) Jimmy Rankin is from the Canadian family band The Rankin Family but he is a great songwriter, singer and really damn cute! This is also a benefit for a great school here in Nashville so it’ll make you feel good all over.  AND to top is all off it’s in my newest favourite venue.  

3/17/13     Pat McLaughlin    3rd and Lindsley

Okay it’s St. Patrick’s Day and he’s Irish, I think.  Have a green beer for me or don’t….but don’t be late because Angel Snow is opening.  Her name describes her voice almost perfectly. 

Live Music Week of February 25 to March 3, 2013

Standard

2/25/13    8 off 8th Road To Bonnaroo featuring Alanna Royale     Mercy Lounge

Alanna kicks butt in the vocal department and this weekly event is always a good place to discover new bands.  It’s also free so you can’t complain you didn’t get your money’s worth! 

2/26/13    San Rafael Band     Sambuca

I have not seen this band in a few years but they were so much fun when I booked them at Cafe Coco back in the day and besides any chance you get to hang out in a venue that has the decor I describe as being, “gothic boudoir,”  you should take the opportunity.  

2/27/13    Dave Peterson     Station Inn

Mr. Peterson has been around this town for quite awhile and is well known as being an excellent musician who puts on a great show.  So if you are hankering for some “real deal” country music and memories of yesteryear head on down to the Station Inn and go ahead and get yourself a pizza too. It’s pretty darn yummy for bar pizza. 

2/28/13    Birdcloud      Mad Donna’s     

Okay, these ladies did some nice things for a charity I support recently so I wanted to give them a shout out however, I just listened to their video at the above link and I don’t think they have to be nice… they are brilliant. Probably not for everyone so check ’em out first. 

3/1/13      Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale     Cannery Ballroom

I don’t have to say anything about this show.  Buddy…Jim…it’s not my favourite room in town at all but…just GO! 

3/2/13          Ivories Lounge     Holiday Inn

Okay, so this is so not something I would usually recommend but I went there last Saturday and had a blast. The band, of course, was full of great Nashville musicians but the people watching was out of this world.  It was one of the cutest places I have ever been in Nashville. Trust me, open your mind have a margarita (oh but be prepared to get your own water) and spend a little time on the dance floor.   

3/3/13     The Delta Saints     3rd and Lindsley

My first choice is Tristan Prettyman at Mercy however these guys are great too…excellent venue, lousy food! Blah, blah blah.  

 

Live Music Week of February 18, 2013

Standard

2/18/13     Drumline Live     Schermerhorn

As much as I love the bands and singer/songwriter’s we have access to in Nashville I just love unique musical productions that aren’t accessible to us on a weekly basis. 

2/19/13     The Billy Block Show     Mercy Lounge

This long running event is only $5 and features really great artists from in and out of Nashville.   

2/20/13     Will Kimbrough     Station Inn

The Station Inn is full of locals and tourists in the heart of the Gulch but a real true  Honky Tonk that hold’s it’s ground! Jimmy Buffet loves Will so you will too!

2/21-23/13     The Chieftains     Schermerhorn

Irish music is not just for St Patty’s day anymore.  Great musicians in an award-winning (well it should be if it isn’t) venue.   

2/22/13     The KDSML Review     Exit/In

I knew him back when he spelled it Kidsmeal.  I knew nothing about DJ’s when he came to Cafe Coco many years ago. This man gave me the appreciation for it as an art form so I expect great things from whoever he brings to his events.  

2/23/13     Jen Foster & Granville Automatic   Bluebird Cafe

Okay, the reason I know about this event is because I work with Jen, however I also love my job.  She’s a fabulous singer and songwriter and one of the members of Granville has sung back ups for her and all I can say is…don’t miss hearing that voice.  Just remember it’s the Bluebird so shhhh…and get your tickets now. 

2/24/13     Oscar Night     Belcourt Theatre

Well it’s not necessarily music but it would be fun.  I honestly was hard pressed to find anything that grabbed my attention for Sunday night. Put on your party dress, walk the red carpet and support a great local treasure.
