Featuring the Paul Reed Smith Band

Avalon Theatre

$75 Reception & Show

$40 GA Upper Balcony


Come out for a great music event while making an impact on the lives of those who are affected by breast cancer.

The Paul Reed Smith Band performs all over the world including England, Germany, Japan, Canada, and Italy, and we are thrilled to have them at the Avalon Theatre! The band describes their music as "Chesapeake Gumbo" – an Annapolis/ Baltimore music style that is a combination of funk, rock, R & B, jazz, fusion, gospel, New Orleans Meters, hiphop, and melodic instrumental music. That about sums it up!

The music is anchored by the world famous Grainger brothers rhythm section and is accompanied by Michael Ault (guitar), Mia Samona Davis (vocals), Benjie Porecki (keyboards), and Paul Reed Smith on guitar. The band will be performing songs from their recently recorded CD, some old favorite band compositions from previous CDs and some very famous songs (like a great Tina Turner rendition of Proud Mary). A great time is guaranteed by all. Paul personally guarantees that you are gonna love this show!

Paul Reed Smith is the founder and owner of PRS Guitars. Smith is considered to be one of the preeminent master guitar makers in the world, with clients including Carlos Santana, Jimmy Page, Dave Matthews, Dave Navarro, Ricky Skaggs and others.

This concert is a fundraiser for Susan G. Komen Maryland.  The net proceeds from this event will go to support community grant programs which provide access to screening, treatment, clinical trials and a range of support services for survivors and their families across Maryland, while also supporting national research.

The premium ticket ($75.) includes a pre-concert reception in the theatre, which will begin at 6:30pm, including food and a drink and a chance to meet Paul and his bandmates.  There will also be a live auction of a PRS SE Custom 24 guitar.  General admission ($40.) includes the concert only, with access to a cash bar.

Classic Albums Live: Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon

Classic Albums Live: Pink Floyd?s ?Dark Side of the Moon?
Saturday, February 13, 2016

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $40

 

"A must for music lovers!" (Maclean's Magazine)

 

This note-for-note, cut-for-cut tribute to THE greatest classic rock album of all time is not by a cover band pretending to be the incomparable Pink Floyd.

 

Instead, this special performance features some of the finest musicians in North America recapturing the very essence of Floyd's groundbreaking musical landmark in a pitch-perfect, gimmick-free stage show.

 

Released in 1973 following the departure of founding member Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd developed ?Dark Side of the Moon? during live shows, imbuing their songs with an astoundingly fluid jam-like quality that turned the traditional pop-structure on its head.

 

With enduring songs like Time, The Great Gig in The Sky, and Money, their legendary eighth studio album was a blockbuster success, remaining in the charts for 741 weeks and selling fifty million copies to date.

 

This show recreates the entire legendary album live onstage, followed by the band?s greatest hits!

Bill Frisell - "When You Wish Upon A Star"

Bill Frisell: "When You Wish Upon a Star"
Sunday, February 14, 2016

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $45

 

Since the advent of cinematic sound, the role of music in classic film and television has always been considerable.

 

With his "When You Wish Upon a Star" show, the ever-versatile guitarist Bill Frisell draws upon and celebrates the classic theme music we've heard on the large and small screens and how it shapes and informs our emotional relationships with them.

 

Sultry singer Petra Haden will be on vocals while Frisell and his band will re-imagine in their own inimitable way such time-honored gems as "When You Wish Upon a Star," "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," "Moon River," "Goldfinger," the themes from "The Godfather" movies, "Psycho," and the beloved TV show themes like The Dick Van Dyke Show that we know and love.

 

"Frisell is a revered figure among musicians--like Miles Davis and few others, his signature is built from pure sound and inflection; an anti-technique that is instantly identifiable." -The Philadelphia Inquirer

Fiery anthems and tumultuous confessional songs punctuated with raw, inspired guitar. USA Today

 

Between the potency of his richly detailed songwriting, his intensely emotional, soulful vocals, and piercing guitar work, Anders Osborne is a true musical treasure.

 

He has toured virtually non-stop, either with his road-tested trio, as a solo artist, or as a guest with his countless musical admirers, including Toots and The Maytals, Stanton Moore, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Keb' Mo', The Grateful Dead's Phil Lesh, and Karl Denson's Tiny Universe.

 

He's appeared on Galactic's Ya-Ka-May album, and in 2011 produced and played on critically acclaimed albums by Tab Benoit, Johnny Sansone and Mike Zito.

 

Anders will be joined by Amy Helm, a performer whom Rolling Stone says, "Her dad was Levon Helm, the renowned drummer for the Band. Mom is singer-songwriter Libby Titus, and her stepfather is Steely Dan's Donald Fagen. Still, when it comes to making music, Amy Helm is very much her own person."

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

From performing at Austin’s SXSW music festival to being featured on the soundtrack of Jason Momoa’s Road to Paloma, things have moved quickly for the Radio Birds over the past couple years.

 

And the force propelling their rising fame?

 

 Radio Bird's undeniably unique sound. That sound is simple: Plain-old rock and roll music with a distinctly hairy touch. Meaning, it’s not clean, it’s not easy, (or too difficult), and it’s not the next revival of a previously popular genre from the ‘70s.

 

It is a high-energy yet soulful brand of indie Southern-style rock infused that shakes the walls and stirs the soul.

Local stars, the Wyes Guys will open for Radio Birds! Check them out and support local music.

As one reviewer mused: "Be careful, or Tom Principato could easily topple one of your current guitar heroes from their lofty pedestal..."

 

After 38+ years and a career that boasts 17 albums, 27 "Wammie" awards in numerous categories from the Washington, DC Music Assoc. and over 5,000 gigs which includes over 50 tours of Europe, Tom has been taking his Indie infused eclectic roots mixture of Rock, Funk, Blues and Latin Sounds all over the World--all along the way leaving audiences wowed and slack jawed with his virtuoso talent.

 

Joining him and his band for this special event is Annapolis?s elder statesmen of the blues, Dean Rosenthal. Drawing from the likes of Capt. Beefheart and Bob Dylan, Dean pulls from his immediate community to paint a vivid picture of life in southern Maryland.

Often referred to as a “harp-playing Joni Mitchell,” Kristin Rebecca is a captivating performer who combines her powerful, angelic voice, unique guitar rhythms, and rare harp ability into a show unlike any other.

 

She combines the timeless nature of folk with the modern feel of today’s music. No two of her songs sound alike and no topic is off limits, covering as they do life and all its emotions: from flirtation on the dance floor to standing up for what you believe to striving for dreams.

 

Kristin doesn’t use the harp as a gimmick; she showcases the versatility of this enchanting instrument to create a fresh folk sound that’s truly heavenly.

 

“The music reminded me of the Renaissance, fairies, and unicorns.”

Fleck, a 15-time Grammy winner, has collaborated with Chick Corea, Edgar Meyer, Earl Scruggs, and many other musical luminaries. Washburn?s banjo prowess and songwriting forte--honed during her tenure with Uncle Earl, the powerhouse all-female stringband--has taken her far beyond the banjo?s usual old-timey comfort zone.

 

Together, Fleck and Washburn have mastered the deceptively intricate art of the duet and employ the relatively rare 3-finger and clawhammer banjo duet to create an explosion of musical white heat!

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been called  “the hillbilly Pink Floyd,” which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, and maybe even some Frank Zappa as well. 

 

But if you’ve seen them when they’ve taken over the Stoltz before, you already know that. For the uninitiated, the band taps a broad palette of styles, ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems.

 

Having recently finished a year-long tour of the U.K., U.S., and Canada, they’re ready and eager to spread more of their contagious brand of quirky Americana back here on the Shore!

Andrew Leahey & the Homestead is a heartland rock & roll group steeped in the melodic, guitar-driven music of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen.

With their delicious style of “Southern-fried rock/soul” (Billboard), they’ve recently opened for everyone from Emmylou Harris to the Wild Feathers…and managed to find time to record a full-length album with producer Ken Coomer, Wilco’s former drummer.

 

The Americana music Andrew Leahey and the Homestead serve up is for city highways and country lanes, for pop fans and roots rockers, for the heart as well as the heartland.

 

It’s desperation and redemption and gratitude, funneled through Telecasters and Les Pauls and Wurlitzers.

Joe Holt & Beth McDonald

Friday, April 8, 2016

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

Joe Holt is a professional pianist known for his improvisations and joy of performing. Beth McDonald is a jazz vocalist whose performances are a blend of music from the first half of the 20th century and contemporary originals.

 

Together, they always make beautiful music together, especially when they perform in an intimate venue like the Stoltz!

 

“Joe Holt is the genuine article, an artiste, whose work is a reflection and an extension of who he is. He has found the elusive balance sought by all jazz musicians: the balance between the craft of performing music that is recognizable as being in the traditions of jazz, and the artistry of creating a very personal expression within those same traditions.”

Tri State Jazz Society

 

“Whether it’s the haunting hum of ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ or the sweet soul of ‘The Way You Look Tonight,’ McDonald visualizes the amount of emotion that these particular compositions should always carry. A stunning voice that breathes life into recordings old and new, Beth McDonald is a singer to behold.”

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

"I don't know how he does what he's doing, but it's amazing." -Gary Burr, hit songwriter/member of Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band

 

Jeff Miller knew early on that music was in his blood. He started violin at five years old, and by eight was showing a serious aptitude for music. It wasn't until thirteen, though, that he found his true calling, guitar.

 

Now with a degree from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, a number of acclaimed CDs, and a growing fanbase, Miller is making quite a name for himself for live shows where he uses a device to record and loop guitar and vocal parts, creating more sound than many bands do.

 

Using his voice, guitar, hands and feet, he is able to act as each member of a regular band: a singer, guitarist, bassist, even a drummer.

 

You really need to see/hear it for yourself.

"Porter accentuates well-rendered tales with spitfire-percussive acoustic guitar strumming and fiery color-chord picking."Billboard

 

Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Willy Porter's songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven events--equal parts grit, soul, and muscle--that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Porter's voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.

Rebecca Pronsky is a born and raised Brooklynite whose music is "as urban as it is rural, not afraid to be sophisticated" (Maverick).

 

Her songs are gritty and dark, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre. She "sounds like The Smiths relocated to Nashville" (Northern Sky) and "her voice conveys the wisdom of experience, over a wash of noirishly twangy guitars" (NPR).

 

In nearly a decade of touring, Rebecca has criss-crossed the US and Europe and shared the stage with Josh Ritter, Shawn Colvin, Freedy Johnston, Patty Larkin, Peter Case, Loudon Wainwright III, Amy Rigby, Wreckless Eric, Blame Sally, and Steve Forbert.

Stoltz Listening Room  $20

 

If you were here last winter when the Roadhouse Clams visited the Stoltz, you probably recall an unforgettably raucous performance that energized the sold out room with a strong dose of redneck rock-n-roll.

 

Singer Rik Ferrell and band infuse pure southern juke joint boogie with classic country and a laid back beach bar irreverence that?s loaded with colorfully rustic hooks and flavors. It?s a sound that?s highly recommended if you enjoy Steve Earle, the Allman Brothers, Zac Brown, vintage Rolling Stones.

 

This homegrown, Eastern Shore band has performed with the likes of Jonny Lang, the Avett Brothers, Southern Culture on the Skids, the Nighthawks, the Gin Blossoms, and members of country legends Alabama, among others.

 

But while the Roadhouse Clams spend a large part of their time on the road, they remain the quintessential soundtrack of their native Eastern Shore, and we?re excited to welcome them.

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jennifer Knapp returns to the Stoltz for an evening of her beautifully intimate style of alternative country/folk/rock.

 

Metro Weekly praises her most recent release, Set Me Free, as “an engaging collection of melodic folk-rock sung in Knapp’s sweet voice which is a bit of a mix between Sarah McLachlan and Emmylou Harris. It’s hard to classify Knapp’s music exactly – – it’s in that same hybrid world of folk, rock, blues and country that Lucinda Williams inhabits. Set Me Free should appeal to fans of all those genres.”

“Aside from the Beatles and perhaps the Beach Boys, no mid-‘60s rock group wrote melodies as gorgeous as those of The Zombies.” AllMusic.com

 

The Zombies defined an era of rock music with enduring, classic hits like “Time of the Season”, “She’s Not There”, and their unique blend of vocal harmonies and jazz/classical-influenced organ and piano sound.

 

Rolling Stone ranks their 1968 album “Odessey and Oracle” at 100 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The acclaimed band is still alive and kicking with their latest release, “Still Got That Hunger”, which harkens back to their vintage sound while also exploring fresh musical and lyrical territory.

 

In its review of the album, SPIN magazine writes: “The Zombies show no sign of slowing down as they continue to blow our minds…”

 

This is truly a must-see show for fans of classic ‘60s rock as well as anyone who loves smart, catchy, hook-filled songs!

Monterey Spring Tour

Sunday, May 22, 2016

Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show 8 p.m.

Avalon Theatre  $35

 

Grammy-nominated flat-picking harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids have emerged in the last three years as a powerful voice defining the continuing folk tradition. A refreshing alternative to the foot-stomping grandeur of the so-called “folk revival,” an understated virtuosity defines The Milk Carton Kids to the delight of traditionalists and newcomers to the folk movement alike. Indeed, Garrison Keillor has called them “absolute geniuses in close-harmony,” and has invited them onto A Prairie Home Companion three times in 2013, while cultural purveyors like T Bone Burnett and Billy Bragg continue to refer the importance of The Milk Carton Kids among a group of new folk bands expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that precedes them.

The Los Angeles Times lauds their latest Anti- Records release, The Ash & Clay (March 26, 2013), as displaying “absolute mastery of their craft” while Paste emphasizes the “intellectual sophistication of their songs, making The Milk Carton Kids an option for purists unsatisfied with some of the pop tendencies seeping in to the genre.” In addition to a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album of 2013, The Milk Carton Kids also received a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2013 Americana Music Awards. They are featured in T Bone Burnett & The Coen Brothers' concert film documentary, "Another Day/Another Time: Celebrating the Music of 'Inside Llewyn Davis'", alongside Joan Baez, Jack White, Gillian Welch, Marcus Mumford, Punch Brothers and many other folk luminaries and upstarts.

Michael Glabicki cites the Bee Gees, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Toni Childs, Black Keys, Black Sabbath and various Afro Pop music as among his influences. The powerhouse ensemble’s hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Plant & Page and many others. Now with the release of their newest album, The Movement, the journey continues.

"His set was rumbling roots-punk guitar gunslinging at its most fierce and hip" Alison Fensterstock, writing about Escovedo's 2014 performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival

 

With over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, Alejandro Escovedo has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation with a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives.

 

Regardless of the style he plays "everything from his early days with punk band The Nuns (which opened for The Sex Pistols at Winterland) to his work with the post-punk band Rank and File and The True Believers" Escovedo's crafty, intelligent music always goes right to the heart of his audience.

Praised by Rolling Stone for her "friendly pop-rock with bits of twang, rockabilly, and '50s pop," Borges has dug deep into unexplored territory for the new songs on this release (out in March). However, "digging deep" has never been a problem for someone with her amazing talent.

“Sounding like no other singer of her generation.” Allmusic.com

 

Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC- based chamber-pop group October Project, whose hallmark sound was Fahl’s awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication.

 

As a solo artist, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” for V2 Records and her wonderful, original studio album “The Other Side of Time” on Sony Odyssey.  She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song (“Going Home”) for the Civil War epic Gods and Generals. 

 

Her most recent album “Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House”, winner of the Indie Acoustic “Album of the Year” award, is a collection of twenty-four tracks recorded live at one of America’s oldest vaudeville theaters that captures the soaring vocals and musical breadth that makes the Mary Fahl concert experience what the Portland Press called “soul-permeating”.
