"One More Saturday Night" Winter Music Series

Born in November is a powerful duo born and raised in the heart of Oklahoma, with Cplus, on piano, and vocals, and Woody, on drums and vocals. Humble beginnings led to great individual achievements for the once struggling band. Earlier shows began with many open mic nights and local neighborhood coffee shops where you might find a handful of after-school teenagers rambling through their iphones, or maybe an elderly couple enjoying a nice cup of joe. Needless to say, the hard work did pay off. Shortly afterwards, the band landed a small tour for Buffalo Wild Wings, which required them to travel from Oklahoma to as far as San Angelo Texas. The sound of Born in November is continuously making it's impact across the world, when the band released their first album in 2015, "Born In November 1310." Once you have an Born In November experience, I believe we can all agree, They came to have a good time.

Trout Steak Revival

Indie-Folk and Bluegrass-inspired Americana from Denver, Colorado

Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become a quintessential Colorado band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS web documentary. They’ve collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in Denver and Steamboat Springs. Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band, and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association. 

Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots, and in doing so, evokes its own style of Americana. With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival crafts memorable tunes and delivers them to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band.

Orgone

Dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feel and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor

Orgone (Orgōne). Noun. 1. A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy. 3. The creative force in nature.

Now and always, Orgone delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feel and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgone has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since.

“We intend our music to have an inhibition canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And sometimes it takes a big 'ol push... a love shove, if you will. And we're well versed in those."

Fearless vocalist Adryon de León elevates the octet’s soulfulness to intoxicating new levels on Orgone's latest studio album, Beyond The Sun. Dubbed "stank face inducing glory" by Okayplayer, the record is a lightning rod of inspiration for a new generation of funk music lovers. Following the standalone release of “Do What You Came To Do”, Orgone plans to drip steamy new singles one-by-one into the world throughout the summer of 2016.

Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who'd ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn't rely on amplification. Simonett hadn't played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who'd previously played drums in a speed metal act) and bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.

Trampled by Turtles released their first record, Songs from a Ghost Town, in 2004. In a genre steeped in tradition, the album stood out for its contemporary sound, essentially bridging the gap between the bandmates' background in rock music and their new acoustic leanings. It wasn't until 2008 and the band's fourth release, Duluth, that Trampled by Turtles received recognition by the bluegrass community. Duluth peaked at number eight on the Billboard bluegrass chart and paved the way for a number of festival appearances. Two years later, their crossover appeal landed them at number 32 on the Billboard 200 pop charts upon the release of their sixth album, Stars and Satellites. In addition to major bluegrass and folk festivals, they began showing up at Coachella, Bumbershoot, and Lollapalooza. The darker-toned Wild Animals bettered its studio predecessor on the album charts, reaching number 29. Their latest album, Life Is Good On The Open Road (May 2018), was described as "among [their] best efforts yet" by Glide Magazine.

Willie Green Project
 
Willie Green Project is a modern jazz group from New Orleans, LA. Made up of some of the city's most promising young talent, the band represents the next generation of great jazz musicians emerging from the birthplace of the genre. Bandleader Willie Green is a spiritual musician and composer based in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Originally hailing from LaPlace, Willie developed an interest in drums early in his childhood by playing gospel music in his dad’s church.  It was there that his spiritual sensibility was born, and he has continued to infuse that spirituality into his performances and compositions ever since. In 2011, Willie moved to New Orleans to attend Loyola University.  During his college years, he was able to study with some of New Orleans’ premiere drummers, including jazz legend Herlin Riley.  In his junior year at Loyola, Willie became the drummer for Delfeayo Marsalis’ Uptown Jazz Orchestra. Since he graduated university in 2015, Willie has had the opportunity to play with New Orleans’ most promising up-and-comers and local legends alike, including Ellis Marsalis, Roderick Paulin, Gregory Agid, Betty Shirley, Michael Watson, Roger Lewis, and more.  He has played major festivals both at home and across the world, including Manchester Jazz Festival in UK, Mid Atlantic Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival, and New Orleans’ world-renowned Jazz Fest. The Willie Green Project's debut album is set for release in mid-October.
 
Willie hopes to continue spreading his message of peace through his music, and hopes to play with as many musicians as possible throughout his career.

When people see The Lil Smokies setting up their acoustic instruments, they’re often unprepared for the electric energy they generate. The band captures that same dynamic presence on their most recent album, Changing Shades, delivering their exceptional songwriting and bluegrass roots with the punch of a rock band.

The first incarnation of The Lil Smokies got together in Missoula, Montana, during the winter of 2009. Through the years, the band transformed and settled into the current lineup – Scott Parker on bass; Jake Simpson on fiddle; Matt Rieger on guitar; Matt Cornette on banjo and Dunnigan on dobro. Previously, the band has won the 2015 Telluride Bluegrass Band competition and took home the 2016 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year award. They’ve also wowed fans at the High Sierra, FreshGrass, Telluride Bluegrass, Grey Fox, Del Fest, Floyd Fest and String Summit festivals, to name a few.

Tickets are $23 in advance, $25 day of show (including all service charges). They are also available by phone through Hold My Ticket at 505-886-1251.

Despite receiving little national press or major label support, Bob Schneider has managed to become one of the biggest acts in Austin, if not in Texas. His fans, who often discover him from being brought to his shows by their friends, are fiercely loyal. Many have attended dozens or even hundreds of shows. Thanks to these fans, Schneider has won more Austin Music Awards than any other musician, including Best Songwriter, Best Musician, and Best Male Vocals, rounding in at 54 total awards to date.

In retrospect, it appears inevitable that Bob Schneider would become an artist. He was born in Michigan and raised in Germany, where his father pursued a career as a professional opera singer. As a boy, Schneider studied piano and guitar, often performing at family parties and backing his father on drums at nightclubs throughout his youth in Germany and Texas. He went on to study art—his other primary passion and avocation—at the University of Texas El Paso, before moving to Austin and establishing himself as a musician. He performs relentlessly, creates new music compulsively, writes poetry, and regularly shows his visual art in galleries around Austin.

With his latest album, ​Blood and Bones​, Schneider further cements his reputation as one of the most versatile, inventive, and engaging songwriters working today. Blood and Bones​ captures Schneider at a unique, and distinct, place. "Most of the songs are about this phase of my life," he admits. "I'm re-married, I have a 2-year-old baby daughter who was born over two months premature because my wife had life threatening preeclampsia. So dealing with that traumatic event while getting older and looking at death in a realistic, matter of fact way, experiencing the most joy I've ever experienced along with feelings of utter despondency in a way that would have been impossible to experience earlier in my life, all comes out in the songs."
