Jenny Gill & Keeley Valentino at the Rutledge

20130222-201700.jpg

I don’t usually do reviews of shows on this blog however I am allowed to change my mind, not only because it’s my blog but because I am a woman.

Last Friday night found me at the Rutledge on 4th Avenue.   It wasn’t a show I had suggested but I often see things throughout the week that I may find more appealing or perhaps that would just fit my schedule better.  I like to act as if I go out on the town every night but the truth is I’m getting older and earlier is sometimes better.  This show started at 7 which was perfect for me this Friday night.  I had seen the show announced on my friend Charles Alexander’s Facebook feed.  Keeley Valentino  is managed by Charles and I have met her and think she is very sweet.  I was also interested to see Jenny Gill , yes because of her last name and also because I’ve heard her name around town many times and have never actually heard her band.

I walked in a few minutes after Keeley’s set had begun. (Side note the Mexican Restaurant next door has great food but don’t try to leave your car there without asking.) I had seen Keeley about a year ago at the Basement and I enjoyed her but perhaps because my head was not in it or for other reason’s I just wasn’t blown away.  Friday night I was blown away. Her songs and voice were gorgeous.  She has a great range and knows how to use it rather than just blow out every song at top volume.  Her band was awesome and I was most impressed with the fact that she not only had a back up singer (I do not think singer/songwriter’s should be allowed to play this town without one – why would they not when we have so many great singers here! ) Tangent over…so not only did Keeley have a back up singer but she had Maureen Murphy, if you don’t know Maureen just go to the page I have linked.  Overall really enjoyable set and she had a great audience show up to not only support her but really enjoy her show.

I stayed for a little bit of Jenny Gill’s set and really enjoyed her cover of Adele as well as her R&B style repertoire. She had an awesome band, which was expected. The house was rockin’ when I left and I’d definitely check her out again.

The Rutledge really struggles in the parking department, however I did find one because I squeezed my Smart Car in between a wall and a Cube but I would say, hands down, (what does that mean exactly?) The Rutledge has one of the best sounding rooms in town and probably one of the most honest and nicest owners I have ever met.

 

Live Music Week of September 10, 2012

Standard

9/10/12      The Time Jumpers CD Release      3rd and Lindsley

I can’t believe the Nashville Scene did not have this as the critics pick this week.  This long running Monday night hootenanny has moved to 3rd and Lindsley and will be a night not to be missed. Fiddles, Western Swing and Country the way it should be play and uh, Vince Gill!? It’s a no brainer!

9/11/12      Amelia White, Julie Christensen & Tommy Womack      Two Old Hippies

The Scene did get Tuesday right.   Amelia has been working hard and playing her own style of quirky (in the good sense) Americana for many years, Tommy is a Nashville treasure and a great writer on many levels and as for Julie, anyone who has sung with Leonard Cohen is a goddess in my books.  

9/12/12     10pm  Corb Lund  Mercy Lounge  11pm Brandi Carlile  Cannery Ballroom   12am  Shovels and Rope  The Basement

This week’s Americana Festival will be incredible and it’s going to be impossible to see it all. Every night at every hour it’ll be difficult to choose so I’m giving you my top three for each night.  

9/13/12  9pm  Angel Snow The Basement  10pm Mary Gauthier Station Inn or 10pm Jim Lauderdale and the North Mississippi Allstars The Rutledge

Yea it just gets harder as the week goes on…I may need to clone myself.

9/14/12  10pm McCrary Sisters Station Inn  or Darrell Scott Mercy Lounge  11pm  John Hiatt  Cannery Ballroom

It’s a great week to live in Nashville!  All this and more for $50!

9/15/12   10pm Tift Merritt  Mercy Lounge  11pm Buddy Miller & Lee Ann Womack  Mercy Lounge  or 11pm Rodney Crowell  Station Inn

I think Tift Merritt has one of the most beautiful and distinctive voices and I spent many hours listening to her songs over and over again when I used to live on cruise ships and had no idea what was happening in the real world.  I thought she was it!
