Sept. 30th – SISTER HAZEL – 8pm/Doors 7pm
It’s been nearly 20 years and over two million records sold for Sister Hazel since the catchy love-struck first single “All For You” hit airwaves and built Sister Hazel a reputation for getting people to tap their toes. Sister Hazel’s creative train just keeps rolling. Their album titled “Release” reached the band’s highest ever spot (#37) on the Billboard Album Charts, topping even their platinum disc “Somewhere More Familiar,” and they have kept the momentum going with their most recent album “Heartland Highway”, marking the band’s quickest album-to-album turnaround in their 20+ year career. Drawing comparisons to Blues Traveler and Counting Crows, Sister Hazel continues to produce music that you can’t help but bob, and clap, and sing along with.
Oct 24th – TOAD THE WET SPROCKET – 8pm/Doors 7pm
Toad the Wet Sprocket (Glen Phillips on lead vocals and guitar, Dean Dinning on bass and vocals, Todd Nichols on lead guitar and vocals, and Randy Guss on the drums) share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course of those 25 years. After Bread & Circus, they followed with Pale in 1990, fear in ’91, Dulcinea in 1994, and Coil in 1997, as well as some compilation and rarities compilations along the way. While most will feel the comforting familiarity of the Billboard-charting hits, “Walk on the Ocean”, “All I Want”, “Something’s Always Wrong”, and “Fall Down”, new fans will also be well familiar with their new hits such as “California Wasted” which continues to climb the charts.
Nov 8th – OTTMAR LIEBERT – 8pm Show/Doors 7pm
With his engaging mix of subdued flamenco guitar and South American percussion, rock, jazz, and pop influences, German guitarist Ottmar Liebert’s “attitude” actually suppresses the more challenging and “dangerous” aspects of flamenco in favor of the romantic and the stylish. His feel for the music’s innate sensuality and a gift for creating memorable melodies helped to bring flamenco to the mainstream.
Dec. 8th – JJ GREY – 8pm/Doors 7pm
Over the course of six albums and a decade of touring, JJ Grey’s grimy blend of front porch soul and down-home storytelling has taken him around the world and back again. Beating the streets on nearly every continent, he and his band Mofro have sewn a continuous thread of laying-it-on-the-line shows that move folks to dance and at times to tears.
Jan 8th, 2018 – THE ZOMBIES – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
The Zombies are now in their 54th year and are cited as being one of the most influential UK pop/rock bands of all time. Aside from the Beatles and perhaps the Beach Boys, no mid-’60s rock group wrote melodies as gorgeous as those of the Zombies. Dominated by Colin Blunstone’s breathy vocals, choral backup harmonies, and Rod Argent’s shining jazz- and classical-influenced organ and piano, the band sounded utterly unique for their era. To this day, they’re known primarily for their three big hit singles, “She’s Not There”, “Tell Her No”, and “Time of the Season”, however they have released multiple albums in recent years, both in the studio and live.
Jan 26th + 27th – ARLO GUTHRIE – 8pm Show/7pm Doors

Born in Coney Island, New York in 1947, Arlo is the eldest son of Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company and founder of The Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease, and America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher/artist Woody Guthrie. Arlo has become an iconic figure in folk music in his own right with a distinguished and varied career spanning over fifty years.
Feb 1st, 2018 – LORRIE MORGAN – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
She has sold over six million records and has had gold and platinum successes (including fourteen top ten hits, twelve recorded albums and four Female Vocalist of the Year awards). Her duet partners have included the likes of Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams and The Beach Boys.
Feb 15th, 2018 – JESSE COLIN YOUNG BAND – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
Who hasn’t heard the beautiful Youngblood’s rendition of Get Together penned by Dino Valenti? It has been featured in endless films, TV and on heavy radio rotation since it first was recorded in 1967. For 50 years Jesse Colin Young has been singing songs about peace, relationships and the environment. From his folk days in Boston and his first record, Soul Of a City Boy, he has articulated and recorded the tumultuous times of the 60s, 70’s, 80’s to the present, while reminding us that it is all about family, community and the precious natural world we live in. His musical style is now considered Americana, but in fact it’s his unique fusion of jazz, blues, folk and rock with an emphasis on his extraordinary voice that makes his signature sound.
Mar 2nd, 2018 – GEORGE WINSTON – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
George Winston grew up mainly in Montana, and also spent his later formative years in Mississippi and Florida. During this time, his favorite music was instrumental rock and instrumental R&B, including Floyd Cramer, the Ventures, Booker T & The MG’s, Jimmy Smith, and many more. Inspired by R&B, jazz, Blues and rock (especially the Doors), George began playing organ in 1967. In 1971 he switched to the acoustic piano after hearing recordings from the 1920s and the 1930s by the legendary stride pianists Thomas “Fats” Waller and the late Teddy Wilson. In addition to working on stride piano, he also at this time came up with this own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano. In 1972, he recorded his first solo piano album, BALLADS AND BLUES 1972, for the late guitarist John Fahey’s Takoma label.
Mar 3rd, 2018 – ANA POPOVIĆ – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
The award-winning, hard-touring, guitar slinger blends smoking electric funk and slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals and a tight blues groove with soulful, feminine vocals. In 2013 Ana appeared on the cover of Vintage Guitar, Guitar Player’s Gear Guide and American Blues Scene. Her album ‘Can You Stand The Heat’ was a “Pick Of The Week” by USA Today and featured on NPR Music. In 2014 Ana received her 5th Blues Music Award nomination for ‘Contemporary Blues Female Artist’ of the year. Nearly all of Ana’s albums made it the Top 5 of the Billboard Blues Charts
and are being played regularly on US radio.
Mar 10th, 2018 – MARC BROUSSARD – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
The son of Boogie Kings guitarist (and Louisiana Hall of Fame member) Ted Broussard, singer/songwriter Marc Broussard was seemingly destined for a life as a music man. His upbringing in Lafayette, Louisiana, instilled in him an affinity for R&B alongside the Cajun trappings of southern Louisiana. Drawing vocal and stylistic influence from Otis Redding and Brian McKnight while bearing the preternaturally gruff vocals of John Hiatt and Dr. John, Broussard was barely 20 at the time of his first album’s release. He has opened for and shared stages with everyone from Maroon 5 and the Dave Matthews Band to Willie Nelson, O.A.R., and Bonnie Raitt. In March of 2011, two songs — “Lucky” and “Only Everything” — were issued for digital download as a precursor to his self-titled, Jamie Kenney-produced album that appeared in July that also signaled his return to Vanguard.
Mar 13th, 2018 – GET THE LED OUT – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out present a two hour + set each night that spans the mythic career of the legendary British supergroup. With a strong focus on the early years, they also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert.
Apr 1st, 2018 – JOHN SEBASTIAN – 8pm Show/7pm Doors
John Sebastian and his group The Lovin’ Spoonful played a major roll in the mid-’60s rock revolution. You know the songs by heart: “Do You Believe In Magic?” “You Didn’t Have To Be So Nice.” “Daydream.” “Younger Girl.” “Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?” “Summer In The City.” “Rain On The Roof.” “Nashville Cats.” “Six O’Clock.” “Darling Be Home Soon.” “Younger Generation.” These songs did more than simply answer the British invasion, they carried the musical tradition into the future.
