Greetings and fair weather to you all. It is now 4:20 in the a.m. of this f.m. day, and we sit tethered to this ‘puter desk while the world outside wakes up for another day. Come to think of it, it’s always 4:20 around here which leads us to think that there’s a vast right-wing conspiracy keeping us in our place. We dream of change, though… and someday think we might very well stay in your place sometime…alas, we can only dream…

As we go to press with our Hot Summer Nights edition the Summer is in full tilt boogie. The outdoor shows are everywhere, and we are relieved that this hasn’t been like the last two Summers, where the mercury sat above 100 for months on end. (We hesitate to say this, however, as sure enough whenever we think we’re out of the woods it comes back to haunt us…it’s a bit like commenting aloud that you like a certain product that Walmart carries. If they hear you they stop carrying that product…it happens every time…)

Great things are afoot these days. To wit: our daughter, Adrienne, just delivered our first grandchild. Madison Dianne Douglas came to be and we are elated, to say the least. And true to family form, she arrived in the middle of the night. Everyone is healthy, thank God, and the prognosis is that we will be soon learning to babysit, change diapers when needed, and just be entertained by the sheer wide-eyed innocence of youth in its extreme. What would you expect? Now, the thing is, we stopped our personal growth at 13 years old. Methinks we are the youngest grandfather in history. (Hey, the summer we turned 13 we got to see some of the best bands in the history of the world for free: Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, the Warlocks-soon-to-be-The Grateful Dead, and so on. We instinctively knew that life would never get any better - ever - so we decided to simply stay right here…you know? Who can blame us?!)

In General…….

The Fayetteville ROOTS festival went off without a hitch as 'they' say. The weather was perfect, the venues were perfect and the vibes were excellent.

Adrienne, Michael and Madison Dianne Douglas

Our congratulations and thanks to all who made this a remarkable affair, especially Jerrmy Gawthrop, who both conceived of and spearheaded this affair from the start. Jerrmy was the man behind the Great Unknown Festival way back in 2004, a critically excellent festival on the King's River that was poorly attended and ended being a financial flop. Hopefully, his ROOTS festivals are making up for some things now. Indeed, it takes a person with a special spirit to be able to put that behind him and create a new situation with such grave potential risks involved...especially someone who has been burned before. For Jerrmy to take on this endeavor is an amazing display of, shall we say, testicular fortitude... We had a chat with Brett Mosiman the other day about his festivals and the realities of doing shows here in the Altered State. Brett is the creator of and head honcho of Wakarusa. It is widely known that Wakarusa this year was plagued by torrential rains and severe thunderstorms and that many festival-goers actually had to be towed out of the festival grounds at the end. This was the 10th anniversary of Waka, with the biggest names to date on the bill. What isn’t widely known - until now, that is - this year Wakarusa broke all previous records. Indeed, well over 25,000 music lovers flocked to Mulberry Mountain for the festivities, and despite the weirdness of the weather, everyone we’ve spoken with has told us that it was a magical event unmatched by anything they’ve ever experienced. Thing is, whenever a group of people all share a sudden catastrophe - especially involving a weather incident - they all seem to pull together in the realization of the moment. Just as at Woodstock, when the rains hit the whole crowd became like a single family all caught up in the survival mode…a really big family that was all helping each other to cope. Remember the ice storms that hit Northwest Arkansas a few years back? Who could forget! It was like that. Everyone had a common situation very far from anyone’s control and everyone helped everyone pull through it. Call it the Quantum physics of the moment if you will… Wakarusa was a trying time to be sure, but it all worked out and a great many people had an experience that they will never forget…for the rest of their lives… The following week, of course, was another story. The promoters had worked diligently and were able to get the grounds cleaned up and ready for the influx of thousands of fans who attended the Thunder On The Mountain country music camping festival… It was really well attended, all the shows went off without a hitch, and many, many thousands enjoyed a camping trip with many, many thousands of their new bestest friends. And we’re told that it will, indeed, be an annual affair...

IT’S MORE FUN, Y’ALL! Get ready for burgers, bull-ridin’ and a boot scootin’ good time! The original honky tonk hangout is now open. Bull rides Line dance with the Gilley’s Girls Food and drink specials Live entertainment

Kudos to Brett Mosiman and his staff, and the incredible people who own Mulberry Mountain, the Patton family, for cleaning up the facility so well, and what had to be the monumental task of repairing and rebuilding the venue so quickly. For a first-year event it went, as Brett put it, “Swimmingly. We all had a great time and even the staffers who survived Waka had fun and we all can’t wait to do it again next year.” We’ve said it before and will likely say it again: thank you, Mr. Mosiman, for bringing your festivals to our Altered State…you’ve added new dimensions to life in these parts. Whatever we can do to help you feel at home, well, just count on…

In Particular…….

As we go to press the plans for both the Hot Springs Blues Fest and Bikes, Blues & BBQ are all in motion. Add to this, Jazz Eureka is right around the corner, and this year none other than Spyro Gyra is headlining the affair. Let’s see, we had Widspread Panic at Waka, Toby Keith at Thunder On The Mountain, we’ll have Yonder Mountain String Band and Tedeschi Trucks, Railroad Earth and several dozen more notable bands at Harvest…we had Hayes Carll and Iris Dement at Roots, a slew of fine bands at Bikes, Blues & BBQ…we’ll have The Robert Cray Band, Paul Thorn and Selwyn Birchwood at King Biscuit…we’re about to have Spyro Gyra at Jazz Eureka…Hey…what can we say? Life is good here in the Altered State.

In Closing…….

All in all, back when we started this fair publication in 1980, we never dreamed that there’d be this much world-class musical activity here in our midst. All we knew was that this area is rife with incredibly talented musicians that all seemed to us at the time to be being ignored, and we thought that it was a crime…and that if people only knew about the musical riches in our own backyard they just might support such an undertaking. Fact is, people, that was nearly 33 years ago. We think the undertaking has been successful beyond our wildest dreams. We think we’ll keep on keepin’ on. We think it beats the heck out of having to actually get real jobs…

Thunder In The Ozarks

Bikes, Blues & BBQ

Northwest Arkansas to once again host legendary motorcycle rally ---Joe Giles Almost twelve months out of the year, Fayetteville is the perfect southern college town: a mix of liberal and conservative viewpoints living mostly in harmony, beautiful tree-lined avenues and hillsides, the glory of fall football and foliage, and then as September prepares its yearly departure………….the biggest party in the Midwest comes to town. Nationally known in the motorcycle culture as well as to tourists from far and near, Bikes Blues and BBQ is again ready to bring its special brand of fun to the Ozarks. And what fun it is! Bikes Blues and BBQ (or BBB as it’s commonly known) is unique among the nation’s “big boy” motorcycle rallies in that it is an “all-skate” festival. Sure, there will be thousands of motorcycles and tens (actually hundreds) of thousands of bikers, but there are also the families, young and old, who come for the joy of everything about the rally. ‘Family Friendly’ is a motto for BBB…No nudity, lewdness, or many of the things that the general public so often associates with the biker crowd. And to make it even better, once it’s over and the bills are paid and a little seed money is reserved to start over, all remaining profits go to local charities (over a half million dollars in the 13 years of the rally)! So, a great party coupled with a safe and clean atmosphere and money for charity - what’s not to love? (Ok, maybe the noise, if you don’t care for that, but it’s only four days.) Consider this article your primer on BBB if you haven’t attended, or your reminder if you have. First, this year the rally will be held Wednesday through Saturday, September 18-21. (Note: though the festivities have traditionally taken place during the last week of September, the Razorback football schedule trumps all in Arkansas – Saturday, Sept. 28, Texas A and M and Johnny Football come to town, thus the deviation from the norm.) If you’d like to attend from out of town and haven’t made lodging arrangements, plan on staying in Benton County or Missouri or Oklahoma or Fort Smith. Barring last minute cancellations, there are no rooms in Fayetteville or Springdale left. But the good news is that it’s a quick and lovely drive or ride from any of the aforementioned areas. Next, there are four official venues to the rally and each has its own distinct personality: 1. The original spot is, of course, Dickson Street. That’s the party venue featuring the huge BBB Beer Garden with concert stage and free music every day and night. As all good Arkies know, Dickson Street is THE entertainment district of NWA. Great bars and restaurants, cool shops, and an eclectic mix of people to watch. Hundreds of vendors hawking their varied wares cover the parking lots and sometimes even sidewalks of the area with merchandise including leather, clothing, accessories of every sort. And then there’s the food. Oh, the food… BBQ, Greek cuisine, Caribbean fare, burgers, hot dogs, funnel cakes; the list is simply endless. And it’s all superb. But, the rally is about the bikes. Dickson is a motorcycle connoisseur’s paradise: every make and model imaginable lines the streets of the entire area. Customs, choppers, vintage machines, sport bikes, “the stuff dreams are made of”. There are few things more enjoyable than watching the wide-eyed youngsters “ooo” and “ahhh” at the visual offerings. Naturally, there will be a bike show, The Stokes Air Battle of the Bikes in the Beer Garden Saturday, 7:00 am-2:00pm. 2. The Baum Motorcycle Village Venue is located at Baum Stadium on the U of A campus. For those unfamiliar with Fayetteville, it’s on South Razorback Road at the home of the baseball Razorbacks. The Village is BBB’s true shopping area. The motorcycle industry sends the newest and coolest bikes from Harley-Davidson, Victory, Yamaha, Suzuki, and this year the new (really old) kid on the block, the legendary Indian. Each of these companies will be offering demo rides of their most popular models. The Village is home to myriad custom builders and major motorcycle accessory companies as well. In addition, H-D will have the now-famous ladies area featuring ladies ride gear, riding seminars, and stationary mounts that the neophyte can fire up, go through the gears, and generally get comfortable with the riding experience without ever actually moving; it’s called the JumpStart and it’s the coolest thing in the world for the aspiring rider. Of course, at the Village you’ll find more great food. (You’re gonna gain a few pounds at the rally, but you’ll enjoy it...) In addition to the bikes, clothes, “toys,” and food, this year the Village is highlighted by stunt shows by United FMX, a “big-air” motorcycle stunt team that will simply amaze you. 3. The third official venue is the BBB Official Campground at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Again, vendors, free live music, and multiple attractions including lawn mower pulls (you’ve gotta see these things), bike games, karaoke contest, a mechanical bull, and the Arkansas State Championship KCBS BBQ Championship. Friday night is the People’s Choice contest where you can sample all the entrant’s BBQ efforts and vote for your favorite. The campground is also where the United Rentals Parade of Power begins, and the Fayetteville Fire Fighters two charity poker runs end. In addition, helicopter rides will be staged there. What better way to really see the rally than from above? Finally, the campground is home to the BBB saloon, serving the coldest libations around. 4. On Friday night and all day Saturday, the NWA Mall hosts the Second Annual BBB Car show. Last year’s event was huge and this time around, the promoters expect it to top 250 entries. A car show at a motorcycle rally? Genius!! Just like the bikes, these range from restored vintage to wild customs and everything in between. And of course there will be vendors, not to mention everything in the Mall. Not enough cool stuff? Ok, how about this? The First Annual Bikes Blues and Bombers Air Show at the Fayetteville Executive Airport on S. Hwy 71 leading into town. The Commemorative Air Force is bring at least six vintage WWII warplanes to town for this event, and you can not only tour them, but actually go up in one of these magnificent relics of the nation’s past. More? Well, BBB and the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad have teamed up with Progressive Motorcycle Insurance to offer the Progressive Blues Train Shuttle delivering passengers from Dickson Street to the Baum Motorcycle Village and back, all rally long. It’s the best, and certainly the most fun, way to get from one venue to the other. Just park and ride. More? Ok, since one train is good, two must be better. Introducing Ales On Rails, a train devoted to craft beer. The Ales On Rails Craft Beer Train will run on Friday afternoon from Dickson Street to Rogers, just in time for the Rogers Third Friday Street Festival. This year, Third Friday will help



celebrate BBB with vendors, free live music, and of course, a beer garden. But, back to the train, each car will be sponsored by a craft brewery, either local or regional. And while you are on that car, you can sample the brews available from the sponsoring brewery. After a very pleasant stop in Rogers, the train will return and you can switch cars and experience another breweries products. Seriously, how much fun is that?!? Ok, ok, we know, what about the music? Here ya go. Wednesday night is Roots/Country night highlighted by performances by The Ben Miller Band (currently touring with ZZ Top at Billy’s insistence) and the incredible Mountain Sprout. Thursday is devoted to the blues, blues of all sorts. Smooth cool blues, blues-rock, Tulsa blues, blues harp by internationally acclaimed harpist R.J. Mischo, and closing with the Kansas City blues diva, Samantha Fish. Friday night is a mixed bag of blues and rock, but what you really want to know is that the show will close with the absolutely amazing Jason D. Williams. Think Jerry Lee Lewis and you’re right on track. If you haven’t seen Jason D., you’re in for the musical experience of a lifetime. And to close the rally, Saturday is the Rock & Roll Dance party that will be capped by the electrifying horn soul sound of Big James and the Chicago Playboys. There’s more, of course, but you get the idea. It’s fun, it’s for everyone, and you owe it to yourself to be there. One warning, though: Once you’ve been to BBB, you’ll be back. Once simply isn’t enough…

After opening for acts such as Tab Benoit and Watermelon Slim, Fish would join forces with fellow female artists Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on the 2011 Ruf Records Blues Caravan “Girls With Guitars” tour.

While the workshops are in full swing, the gates will officially open for the day at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 31, at Hill Wheatley Plaza. When the gates open “Happy Hour” will begin, with half-priced drinks being offered in the beverage tent until 3:30 p.m. At 3:30 p.m., Hot Springs’ own John Calvin Brewer Band will take to the stage to open the 17th Annual Hot Springs Blues Festival. Featuring guitarist/vocalist John Calvin Brewer, back-up vocalist Miranda Brewer, and bassist Shannon Sabbatini, the John Calvin Brewer Band intrigues listeners with their high energy, tight musicianship, and addictive tunes. With original songs such as “Memphis”, “Get A Little”, and “Sojo Mexico”, the band has quickly evolved into a musical sensation around the area. In 2013, the band had the distinct pleasure

G. Weevil. Known for his unique and inspiring styles in American Roots and Blues, Weevil’s sophomore release The Teaser was named as Mojo Magazine’s “Top 10 Best Blues Album Of The Year”. With a new album slated for release in 2013, Guitarist and Vocalist Little G Weevil is staying busy promoting his work through various live shows across the globe. Originally from Hungary, Weevil would soon make his move to the United States. His first blues musical influence would be the legendary John Lee Hooker. After relocating to Memphis, Tennessee he would go on to share the stage with the likes of Anson Funderburgh, Big Jack Johnson, and E.G. Kight to name a few. After Little G. Weevil exits the stage, the 2013 International Blues Challenge Band winner the Selwyn Birchwood Band will perform. Residing in Florida, Selwyn won the 2013 Albert King Award for

Little G. Weevil “Best Guitarist” at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.

Following the Selwyn Birchwood Band will be Canadian Jazz and Blues vocalist Shakura S’aida.

Closing the festival’s first night will be the Zac Harmon Band. At the tender age of nine, Zac Harmon became fascinated with the Guitar. After several years of playing and performing music, Harmon began to hone his craft while mixing blues and Southern soul. After releasing his 2002 debut album Live At Babe & Ricky’s Inn, Harmon received much

Following Salt & Pepper will be the Spa City Blues Society’s band representatives the Gil Franklin Band. Singing with road-weary conviction and writing lyrics from the heart, lead guitarist, lap steel player, and vocalist Gil Franklin sings mostly original material, based on solid roots music. Longtime band mate Jim Harlow holds down the bass while John Roach keeps the rhythmic appeal on the drums. Gil Franklin’s partner in crime on the Guitar is none other than Dan Sokoloski.

Salt & Pepper Following Gil Franklin will be Hot Springs, Arkansas’ own Hump Night Blues Band. The band will take to the stage to perform in an All-Star Jam. Featuring Larry Womack (guitar, vocals), Steve Danger (drums, vocals), and Rooster Meeks (bass), the members of the Hump Night Blues Band have provided great music to Arkansas since the early 90s. Performing at various venues in and around Hot Springs, the band has made a positive name for themselves by providing phenomenal chemistry and maintaining life-long friendships through the

Shakura S'Aida recognition for his music. In 2004, Harmon and the Mid-South Blues Revue won the Blues Foundation’s “Best Unsigned Band” award at the International Blues Challenge. A year later, after releasing the album The Blues According to Zacariah, Harmon would be named XM Satellite Radio’s “Best New Blues Artist” which was followed by a 2006 win at the Blues Music Awards for “Best New Artist Debut”. In 2007, Harmon would be named to the Blues Foundation’s Board of Directors. In 2009, Harmon would win the “Little Milton” Guitar award for “Outstanding Guitar Player” at the Jackson Music Awards. In 2010, Harmon was presented with a Peavey Award by Peavey Electronics founder and CEO Hartley D. Peavey during the “Mississippi Celebrates Its Grammy Legacy” celebration. Shortly before the Zac Harmon Band exits the stage, after-parties will kick-off at The Big Chill, The Ohio Club, and Fat Jack’s. Beginning at 9pm, The Big Chill will welcome 2Blu & The Lucky Stiffs for another night of fun. (Other acts will be announced shortly for The Ohio Club and Fat Jack’s.) There will be NO COVER at any of the

Gil Franklin Band music. Currently, the Hump Night Blues Band can be seen performing every Wednesday night at Hot Springs’ own musical venue The Ohio Club as part of the Hump Night Blues Jam. Since starting the successful weekly jam, the band has quickly gained notoriety and notable mentions throughout the area. During the show the Hump Night Blues Band will have special guests join them on stage for a spectacular performance. Following the Hump Night Blues Band, the Brandon Santini Band will take to the stage. Featuring Brandon Santini (vocals, harp), Jeff Jensen (guitar), Bill Ruffino (bass), and Brian Wells (drums), the band combines unique styles of Mississippi Hill Country, Delta, and Chicago West Coast Blues. Previously known for fronting Delta High-

Warren Haynes, the Bart Walker Band never disappoint with their upbeat and energetic performances. In June 2012, the band made their first appearance in Hot Springs at the Belvedere Golf Club. Playing in front of a massive and excited audience, the band showcased their in-

Brandon Santini fluential styles in front of a standing-room crowd. In 2013, Bart Walker released his much-anticipated follow-up album Waiting on Daylight. Walker continues to tour as part of Ruf Record’s Blues Caravan Tour. Closing out the 17th Annual Hot Springs Blues Festival will be the powerful blues/rock trio Southern Hospitality. Combining the electrical forces of lap steel player Damon Fowler, high-octane boogie pianist/vocalist Victor Wainwright, and eclectic blues guitar slinger JP Soars, the trio formed to create a new and unique style to the blues.

Bart Walker Band What began as an impromptu jam at a blues festival in Florida would turn into a gig on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Pre-Cruise Party for the trio. Released in 2013, the trio’s debut release Easy Livin debuted to the International Roots music world. Produced by Tab Benoit and recorded at Benoit’s Whiskey Bayou Studio in Louisiana, the record keeps its Americana and Southern Soul roots music intact. While Southern Hospitality finishes their set, after-parties will begin for the final night of the festival. The Big Chill will welcome 2Blu & The Lucky Stiffs back for a third night. The Ohio Club and Fat Jack’s will host their own events for the final night as well.

Zac Harmon venues. The 17th Annual Hot Springs Blues Festival will begin the final day of festivities on Sunday, September 1. Various Blues music-related workshops will be held at the Star Gallery prior to the festival beginning. While the workshops are in full swing, the gates will officially open for the day at 1:30 p.m. “Happy Hour” continues for the second day, as half-priced drinks will be offered in the beverage tent until 2:30pm. Beginning at 2:30 p.m., Hot Springs, Arkansas’ own International Blues Challenge representatives will take to the stage to perform during the festival. The first act will be the Spa City Blues Society’s duo representatives Salt & Pepper. The duo would make it through the finals held at Memphis, Tennessee’s Orpheum Theater during the 2013 International Blues Challenge. Known mostly for their unique interpretations of Blues and R&B cover tunes, Tony Nardi (vocals, keys) and Eddie Mobley (vocals, drums) have been performing together since 1969. In 1970, while stationed in Bangkok, the duo recorded and pressed two original tracks including “Linda” and “Man Of My Word”. Approximately 40 years later, a Northern Soul DJ from England would receive a copy of these rare tracks and would mix the songs into his set. Shortly after, Salt & Pepper would discover that in January of 2009, a copy of the album would sell on Ebay in excess of $3,000.

Hump Night Blues Band way for six years, Brandon Santini started playing harp at the tender age of 15. With influences such as Muddy Waters, Kim Wilson, and Junior Wells, many listeners are infatuated with Santini’s inspirational techniques and sounds which are comparable to that of legendary musician and singer John Popper. Currently signed to Electro Glide Records, the Brandon Santini Band has released several albums including Songs of Love, Money, and Misery along with ‘Big Dog’ Mercer. Most recently, Brandon Santini was nominated for the “Sean Costello Rising Star Award” in the 2013 Blues Blast Magazine Awards. Following the Brandon Santini Band will be the Bart Walker Band. Band members Bart Walker (guitar, vocals), CJ Wilder (bass), and Austin Curcuruto (drums) showcase adverse and inspiring sounds during each live performance. In 2011, the band would release their debut Blues/Rock album Who I Am, which featured 11 stand-out tracks. One year later, the Bart Walker Band would place 2nd in the International Blues Challenge, with Bart Walker winning the title of “Best Guitar Player” at the annual competition. With influences such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Derek Trucks, and

For bookings call Conan, at (501)372-7110....... And while we‘re on the subject, I‘m happy to report that the other Midtown, the new TCs Midtown Grill in Conway, is essentially changing the city. Within the past 3 years or so, Conway, Arkansas has come alive with clubs and watering holes…and this is still a “dry county”. (I don’t think it will be so for very long…) With live bands on weekends, lots of pool tables, shuffleboards, an enormous concert sound and light system, a full bar and even an extensive menu of bar food, the room has quickly become a hit with the Conway party crowd. I caught up with Jason Greenlaw & The Groove the other night and had a great time hanging out with this band. They are hard-driving rockers and really put on a show. Catch them when you can. You’ll be glad you did. (You’ll thank me later…) Set to appear in the coming weeks are Class of ‘87, Dirty Lindsey, Bombay Black, Markus Pearson, Big Shane Thornton, Kiquid Kitty, The Muddlestuds Pirate Party (dress like a pirate for specials throughout night), Taylor Made, Brown Soul Shoes, Aska and much more.

fine food, and the highest caliber live musicians in a very cool room. While I personally really like the dueling piano format (being a piano player myself), the folks at the club have realized that this is not terribly attractive to the college-age party crowd…hence the format change. In the coming weeks look for Joshua Stewart, American Lions, East on 40, Tyrannosaurus Chicken, Brian Ramsey and a lot more. Check this place out, as it is really quite special. Kings serves really excellent food, and sports a full bar. To reach King‘s by phone, call (501)205-8512.......

Things keep on keepin’ on in the Fort, what was once the last “civilized” outpost before you rode into the Wild, Wild West. “Civilized”, of course, is a relative term (but don’t talk about my relatives). Guys like Judge Parker, the judge not the band, kept it so by ruthlessly hanging anyone who even seemed to look like trouble right from the gitgo. Nowadays, it is intensely “civilized” and known far and wide as the perfect place to get down and boogie, especially after the sun has gone down. Had a time at Webby D’s with the legendary Big Al & The Heavyweights. This party band pulled out all the stops and rocked that room all night long. (Well, until closing time, anyway…) Big Al & The Heavyweights consists of Big Al Lauro, drums, vocals; James Bass, guitar, fiddle, saxophone and vocals; Dean Galatas, bass and vocals; and John ‘The Colonel’ Fuhrmann, harmonica and vocals. Other artists set to appear at Webby’s in the next several weeks include The Paul Benjamin Band, The Bryant Carter Band, 3 If By Sky, The Kory Montgomery Band, The Hosty Duo, Buddha’s Groove Shoes, Cadillac Jackson, Brother Bagman, Joey Farr & The Fuggins Wheat Band, The Big Idea, Stiff Necked Fools, the band called very special guests…and don’t miss ‘Help Is On The Way’, a Grateful Dead tribute performance that features members of Isayah’s Allstars on September 7. Webby D’s is one of the coolest music venues in town and you should check it out. For bookings call Jim at (479)4945661……. R. Landry’s is kicking tail and taking names. Primarily a restaurant, the club specializes in authentic Big Easy fare, and makes better food than you can find in most places in New Orleans. And by the way, the club also features good steaks and sandwiches and a wide bevy of nonseafood items for you landlubber-types. I caught a set of The Rachel Fields Band the other night and had a real party of it. Rachel Fields is the niece of our late-great Burger, and the music-making

bug came to her naturally, not to mention that off-the-wall vein of humor we knew so well. (Burger wrote for this paper for a decade, and we still run his Horrorscopes column - see page 54…) Set to appear in the next several weeks are TJ Scarlett, Luke Pruitt, Brian Martin, Good Luck Slim, blues mistress Wanda Watson, Jon Dooly, jazzman Matt Smith, songbird Carter Sampson, Keith Nicholson, Brian Ramsey, Tom Ware, HoneyShine, Austin Steamroller, Willin’ & Able and some guy named robb. There’s rarely a cover charge, but the bands welcome all welcome gratuities (ahem). Oh, and the rumors you’ve heard are true. Miss Natalie is buying out her partner, Dori Colston. Dori is moving to Austin, Texas and has become a full-time professional booking agent for the company that handles Roberta Flack and other big-name artists. She promises not to forget her friends here after she makes it big. And think of this, we will now have yet another place to crash when we visit Austin…and she tells me that once she gets settled “everyone is welcome”…(sounds like famous last words to me…) To reach R. Landry’s by phone, call (479)783-2505……. Had a time at Neumeier’s the other night. The event was the Arkansas Best Tattoo Expo, all topped off by a stellar concert featuring The Reverend Horton Heat and Powerglide. As one can imagine the place was asshole to elbow, too, and the good Reverend blessed us all with his particular musical message. If you’ve never seen this band, you absolutely must witness it. Coming up at the Rib Room on September 6 is The Shane Bailey Inaugural Memorial Bash. This concert will feature a list of players long as a well-rope. On the bill are Don Bailey & Friends, The Brandon Butler Band, The Linnie Hice Trio, musical madman Larry B, Oreo Blue and more. Also in September is an appearance by Waylon’s baby boy Shooter, with Judge Parker opening the show. After that it’s Downday, an up-andcoming Arkansas band who is recently

signed to Render Records. Downday consists of Rockey Jones, Christian Dean, Mike Martin and Damon Shores. They play a heady blend of southern rock and country tunes and, of course, some gritty blues. Check them out first chance you get as they may not be ‘round these parts much longer…or at least for tickets you can afford, anyway. For bookings at the Rib Room call Bill at (479)494-RIBS (7427)……. Rooster’s is one of the Fort’s late-nite clubs. True, the live bands are only Thursday through Saturday, but the club is open 7 days a week until 5 a.m. In the coming weeks look for Ashley Cobb, The Sam Cox Band, Chaotic Remembrance, Monte Costork, Ice Cold Glory and Austin Cobb. Rooster’s features several levels inside the club, as well as a very cool upstairs outdoor deck that overlooks the infamous Garrison Avenue. There are pool tables, arcade games, live bands and decent bar food. For bookings contact (479)783-COCK (2625)....... No word yet about the reopening of Hero’s. We were unable to reach anyone prior to presstime, but we’ll have information on the new location when we can get it… For bookings at the club call (479)784-

Old Town of Fort Smith has live music most nights of the week. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Matt Dodd, Queen Anne’s Revenge, Method To Madness, John Holota, The Last Resort Band, Lost Highway and DJ Shato-Cat. Old Town is open every day and there’s seldom a cover charge.. Call (479)782-1999 for information.......

Out on South Hwy. 71, Beef O’Brady’s checks in this month with a good calendar of music. Look for dates with Double Take, Larry B., Allen Brody & Friends, Flash, The Pearson Brothers Band, Heath Moulton, Rob & Shannon Calloway and The Dorian Cross Band. The food here is excellent, with an interestingly full menu. For bookings call Kim at (479)6469464…….

The Movie Lounge is back in our pages this go-round. Set to appear are Carter Sampson, The Country Jesus Travelling Jamboree, Larry B “Dance Party”, Grant Pierson & John Magness, The Don Bailey Jazz Combo featuring Tabitha Graves, Prince Albert & The Royal Knights, The Wild Cards, The Mark Albertson Trio, Blue Fiddle (!), Gary Hutchison & John Magness and more. Every Tuesday features Mr. Tom Ware, one of the most exciting musicians the Altered State has ever produced. For bookings call (479)226-3595…….

---Doug Treadway

Ho, boy! Papa’s got a brand new Mac, an iMac to be exact. It’s so slick it makes me jealous. Yeah, I know, I couldn’t really afford it, but what the hell, we only live once, far as I know, and you folks deserve my best but I can’t give my best unless I’ve got a decent computer. At least that’s my rationale with the little voice in my head that keeps reminding me I ain’t got a lot o’ money. Anybody know what brand of cat food tastes best? On the other hand, I have regressed into the previous century for my sound source. I am listening to discs, tapes, and LPs on an old Crosley all-in-one unit that, while bulkier than a Bose CD player, hasn’t got quite as good audio reproduction. But what the hell, I’m half deaf anyway. Eydie Gorme has gone on to sing with the heavenly choir. She was 84. I don’t know if you know, but she was a Jewish gal from NYC who had almost as many hits in Latin America as she did here at home. And J. J. Cale, blues / rock singer / songwriter has died at 74. Funny thing: well, no, it’s not so funny … never mind. Bernadette Lafont died. Aha! Don’t know her, do you. She was a French actress Truffaut called more arousing than Brigitte Bardot. So there. She was 74. Michael Ansara (91) played Klingon leader Kang in the original “Star Trek” and reprised the role in “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager.”Another actor, Dennis Farina, has left the stage at 69. An even younger actor has also died: Cory Monteith (Glee) was 39. Art Donovan, on the other hand, lived to be 89, and he was in a much more punishing business than films. He was a Baltimore Colt Hall of Fame defensive tackle and a popular guest on television shows. David Letterman had him on his show many times. Another pro athlete has bit the dust. Emile Griffith held middleweight or welterweight titles five times, but was never the same fighter after his blows resulted in the death of boxer Benny Kid Paret. Speaking of football players, the last Ivy Leaguer to win the Heisman has died. Dick Kazmaier was 82. And even though he wasn’t a football player, mention should be made of the passing of the guy who invented the game Twister. Chuck Foley was also 82. A famous singer you never heard of has died at 97. Page Morton Black sang the Chock Full o’ Nuts coffee jingle in the Fifties. The new owners recently revived the jingle. And the guy who invented the Bose Wave is gone. Amar G. Bose was 83. I don’t know how to get these audio emails to shut up. Somebuddy hep me. I start listening to something presented as a preview of a coming record and it’s a promo with a piece of music wending it’s way in and out. So I close it and the audio is still going. Aaugh! I have to shut down and reboot if the thing is to be silenced; surely there’s another way.

RHYTHM & BLUES Buddy Guy RCA / Silvertone This was one of the PR deals I bitched about earlier: the trailer or teaser or whatever it’s called, was mostly talk, very little music. As soon as I spun the first disc, I forgave ‘em. This


is a two-disc set: one called “Rhythm” and the other “Blues” and I started with the rhythm disc and boom, just like that I was engulfed, transported, moved, lifted. Cat’s been around forever and still getting better. He rips through a couple cuts then slows down for “I Go By Feel.” Then he rips right back into a hot “Messin’ With The Kid” with the aid of Kid Rock. Next comes the almost psychedelic “What’s Up With That Woman” followed by a slow one featuring Keith Urban. Yeah, see? He’s just one of the slickest pickers ever and he proves it with his fingers on the frets and the folks he features. But wait! There’s more! I ain’t told you about the second disc yet. Just listen up. Don’t reckon I’d be giving away any big secret that a few tracks on “Rhythm” sound a lot like blues. Foreshadowing is a venerable literary device and “The Devil’s Daughter” has much more substance than a shadow, fore and aft. For the sake of clarity and honesty, I must admit that I first saw Buddy Guy at the Fillmore West and was totally blown away. I was there to see one of my all-time faves, Taj Mahal. Buddy killed, to the point that Taj played a number and got no response, so he fell back on a classic: “How about that great Chicago blues man, Buddy Guy!” I’ve been a big fan ever since. “Blues” starts with a bang: “Meet Me In Chicago” is definitely up-tempo. But “Evil Twin” is another matter. That’s when Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Brad Whitford join him and rock the record. “Never Gonna Change” is an excellent argument for continuity, as is “All That Makes Me Happy Is The Blues.” There’s not a bad song or musician on the whole set. Visit or buddyguy. com for further info or track him down on therealbuddyguy or tweet @therealbuddyguy. One could also look into The man doesn’t have to brag, his pickin’ says it all.

THE BROWN BAG EP The 1 Oz Jig Infinity Oh yeah. Recorded in Fayetteville by Chris Moore at East Hall Recording, this is quite different and way better than the first album I heard by these guys. It’s funkier and you just get the feeling they let themselves go with the music a bit more this time. It’s only five songs, but they’re kick-ass. Personnel are Jeff Kearney (guitar and vocals), Drew Packard (bass and vocals), Marty Payton (drums), Matthew Beach (trombone, percussion, and vocals), and Jeff Gray (trumpet). I’ve looked and do not find contact information, but you might check the Sound section to see if they’re playing in a venue near you. I think you’ll like ‘em. SOMETIMES Tommy Z Band Blind Raccoon This is one that came in by email with a youtube link that showed Tommy Z playing guitar and singing with bass and drums as backup. Cat can flat pick; sings well too. I didn’t listen to the whole album, but the title track is the first clue that it’s


EP Stevie Jewel indie There are but three songs here and yet each is a polished gem. She sounds as good as she looks (reminds me of Olivia Newton John at times). Check her out on youtube at / steviejewelchannel or go to or call 705-571-2461 to find out what you are missing.

OB20 LIVE! Oreo Blue indie Subtitled “Recycling Twenty Years of Oreo Blue,” this is some of the best listening you're likely to do this year. Recorded live at Second Street Live in Fort Smith. It rocks from beginning to end and the best part is it's local folks, further proof that Arkansas has a musical culture that takes a second seat to none. I know you all know Gary Hutchison (guitars, vocals) but I want to introduce Stephen Boudreaux (drums, vocals), Rod Williamson (bass), Rick Endel (keyboards, vocals), and Chrissy Payton (lead and backing vocals). Swinging hot, swinging cool, they bring it all to bear on these originals, most written by Gary, some by other members of the band, all tight and all right. If you have seen these guys live, you know how much they put into it, and if you haven't, well this would be an excellent way to find out what you've been missing. Tom Ware produced the recording, which is available at CD Baby. For real, check it out. Also check the Sound section for possible appearances nearby. SWEET MYSTERY Rena Wren indie Strong bass line with a distinctively ephemeral voice floating above it. Then she starts putting a little more emphasis on the voice and develops a bit of an edge. Nice. Rena Wren wrote all the songs and seems to me this is her second disc, or the second I've heard anyway. My first impression was a good one and this is another effort that gets my approval. I am not a great fan of this sort of poppy music, but there's enough authentica thrown in to make it real to me. You don't have to be a sentimental fool to do this, but it helps. Rena plays guitar as well as sings and she is joined by Rodgey Roach on bass and backing vocals, Rodney Roach on rhythm and lead guitars

voice: Jack Schauer of 1312 ½ 3rd Avenue North, Fargo ND 58102. Or call him up at 701-298-8503. Cat kind o' reminds me of Frank Wood, especially on “First Rite of Spring.” Decent guitarist too. HEAD RIGHT Indian School AXS I got a video of these guys after catching a few bits of audio hear and there, and they impressed me as being sincere and talented. These things are important. Hey, they sound reasonably good; check 'em out; they're all over social media.

and backing vocals, Matthew Stone on lead guitars, Dobro, mandolin, accordion, keyboards, and lap steel, Brad Messer on drums and percussion, and Laura Lynn Cardenas on backing vocals. It was recorded at Wolfman Studios right here in Little Rock (how odd it is to type that, yet fitting). I'll call it fairy folk music, since elfinwurken is already taken. Reminds me of some of the girl singers back in the '50s. A little girl voice with undertones of comprehension and steely determination.

BATTLEFIELD US Barrett Baber indie That's the battlefield of us, not the US of A. We individual folk tend to find ourselves in a state of war much more often than we'd like. But them's the breaks. Love is a battlefield, or as Buffy Saint Marie put it: love is alive, magic is afoot. You got your sweet mysteries and your battlefields and sometimes you just can't seem to tell 'em apart, but have faith: all will work out in the end ... or not; who's to say? Meanwhile, we have good music like this to help us over the rough patches, get us hiyuh. This was recorded up in Fayetteville, where all the best music seems to be coming from these days, and rightfully so. Baber sings and plays acoustic guitar. He is accompanied by producer Aaron Schauer on keyboards, organ, piano, and background vocals, TJ Scarlet on electric guitar leads, Brandon Robold on bass, Miguel Gamboa on drums, and Carson Clemenshire on banjo for one track. Ann Difani and Ashley McBryde are on additional vocals. It all adds up to a fine mix, an excellent experience. You can find more data at Zach Gump wrote the final song.

SUNSHINE ON ME Big Al and the Heavyweights Blusiana Farther south now, all the way down to Slidell, Louisiana for a further taste of southern soul; this is not drummer Big Al Lauro's first traipse through these pages with his troupe of heavyweights: James Boss (guitar, sax, fiddle, vocals); John Fuhrman (harmonica, vocals); Dean Galatas (bass guitar and vocals); Wayne Lohr (accordion, Hammond B3, vocals. Then add producer Anders Osborne (guitar and percussion), Warren Haynes (slide guitar), Warren Riker (tambourine), Tom Larson (washboard), Lance Caruso (squeezebox and washboard), and Susie Leger (washboard) and y'all gonna pass a good time. Check Blusiana Music at or for booking and merchandise information.

Q. E. D. Jim Allchin Sandy Key Man! This is some seriously good music. Jim Allchin and Ben Smith co-produced the recording at Studio X, Rogue Island Studios, The Church, and Studio 3038 in Seattle, which I'm betting is the one with the space needle and all those engineers up there within a stone's throw of Canada. This stuff just swings all the way, floor to ceiling. The kind of thing you put on when you have a few folks over for drinking and dancing and all that stuff, everybody photographing each other texting the fotos they just took … who's got time to deejay? I'm guessing nobody reading this could afford to hire a pro. Anyway, back to the album: it's packed back-to-back with great tracks, all written by Allchin himself, who sings and plays guitar, accompanied by Ben Smith (there's that name again) on drums and percussion, bassist Dan Dean, Brooke Lizotte on keys, Owen Gurry on strings, and New York Brass honkin'. Hey, the singing! Jim Allchin does lead vocals, backed up by Martin Ross, Mycle Wastman, and Keely Whitney. Mycle and Keely get to share a lead vocal with Jim apiece (and apace). See for more. But definitely give this guy and his genuinely fine group of musicians a listen. Guaranteed good from start to finish.

FROM THE WORLD WIDE WEB Various artists or acts have sent me a bunch of stuff that will not play for me. In the old days (last spring) I thought my problem was that my aged Mac was too slow or whatever, but now I'm on a brand new iMac and some stuff still will not play. I update software programs and reach for the ceiling and touch my toes but nothing works on some of these submissions. I heartily apologize to all of you who have emailed music and not been mentioned in these pages. I'd rather say it's not my fault, but I take responsibility. EP Rainbow Chan Silo I don't know. This has some songs I really like and some that annoy me. Judge for yourself: taylor@tellallyourfriends. com. HOTSHOT Keyless indie? These guys are pretty good. Check out to get a view of 'em on “Everything” or see for further information. Spent some time at The Long Branch Saloon t'other night. Saw Lyle Walton, Apple Kahler, and another great guitarist whose name I forget but who plays with Gil Franklin I'm told. They put on a hell of a show. Met the new proprietor, Harold, chatted with him a bit and a few folks around the bar. He told me that he was featuring live music every weekend with no cover charge. I didn't have the opportunity to get too much information from him as to lineups and all, he has a bar to run, right? It's a big enough space to have a couple pool tables in the bar area and several tables and chairs around a decent dancing space and a spacious bandstand. A good venue and apparently not the biker bar it used to be. I don't report on live music anymore, but I need to mention that I have seen several local acts that are far superior to some of the touring acts I've seen and it makes me wonder: why would someone pay ten or twenty times as much to see some act from the big city and pass on ponying up under ten bucks for a local musician? We have created a culture for that. I suspect that it starts at a very young age. Be aware that your thoughts are guided and directed by industrial giants through advertising and only you have the power to break free from outside influence. Trust your instincts. Party hearty. Be yourself. Like what you like and let the hype steer its own course. Support live music. Read Nightflying... ---DT

SAVE YOURSELF Damn Arkansan East Hall From elves and fairies to sprites, or at least to some more sprightly music from a band of Arkies seeking to entertain the rest of us. Will Eubanks (bass and vocals), Chris Fletcher (drums), Caleb Rose (guitar and vocals), and Drew Walls (vocals and guitar) are joined at East Hall Recordings in Fayetteville by Matt Beach on trombone, Jeff Gray on trumpet, Nathan McLeod on sax, Derek Shacklett on piano, Patti Steel on spoons, and producer / engineer Chris Moore on organ, percussion, synth, banjo, and glockenspiel for five rousing ditties. You can all go to for further information.


THE HOMECOMING Jack Schauer indie Some heartfelt and personal stories from a new (to me)



Brothers Band, Muddy Rivers, the Matt Reeves Band, and Third Degree. The Rowdy Beaver Den is a smoking club for those of us who still partake, and a perfect place to sit, have a bite, have a drink, and watch the world go by outside. For bookings call (479)363-6444...

---Peter Read Things in this mountain town are all geared up for the end of the Summer season. When the weather turns just a bit these freaky Eurekans come outside and let their collective hair down. The tourist traffic actually increases a bit (though it being Eureka Springs there’s never a lack of visitor trafic, except when there’s an ice storm or something…) Voulez-Vous Lounge is Arkansas’ only authentic burlesque cabaret and a tremendous live music venue in general, and let’s the world know every time they have a show. Coming up at the club are The Ruby Revue, Audiodacity, Soul Track Mind, a very big weekend planned for Jazz Eureka weekend with Lilly Bee & The Pollinators, and then the very next weekend with Iron Mike Norton and The Demian Band for an evening of slide guitar magic. On the last weekend of the month is the club’s 2year Anniversary Bash, featuring local musical notable Big Bad Gina. Voulez-Vous specializes in world-class cuisine as well, and the aromas wafting up the stairs to the street tend to pull folks in like magic. What’s more, the club is open every night of the week. Congratulations ladies, on two years of keeping all these derelicts off the streets! For further info check out And for bookings contact the club at (479)363-6595...

Friends, Randy Beach, The Dusty Pearls and more. When it comes to dining the Delhi has you more than covered with an elaborate menu of dishes you can‘t get anywhere else around these parts. They specialize in Mediterranean delights. For bookings call (479)253-2525... The Rockin’ Pig Saloon checks in with The Bryant Brothers, The George Brothers and a lot more. This place is busy on a daily basis, but will be especially hopping during Bikes, Blues & BBQ. The club is open every day, and has a full menu and and even fuller bar. For bookings call Buck at (479)636-9797... The Rowdy Beaver checks in this edition with a strong music calendar.

For something quite different, take a drive north on Hwy. 62 to Caribé and say hi to KJ, who has been keeping Freaky Eurekans off the streets for a couple decades now. KJ is an old partner in crime, and has a penchant for off-the-wall décor and spicy food (and conversation). Live music here is occassional at best, but the crowd that hangs here is qute entertaining in and of itself. Caribé features a full bar, several dining rooms and truly magical ambience in general. To reach them by phone call (479)253-8102……. This entire city will be alive during Bikes, Blues & BBQ. Due to the winding roads and beautiful Ozarks, it is a most popular destination for motorcycle enthusiasts. (I’m wont to call them Bikers anymore, as the ‘Hell’s Angel’ types seem to be rare anymore.) Face it, only people who have serious finances can even think about owning 50 thousand dollar motorcyles, you know?! We’re talking mostly professionals in their day jobs of being doctors and lawyers and accountants and the like. And if they want to do-rag it out on the weekends they have certainly earned the right…

Jazz Eureka

Spyro Gyra and a host of world-class jazz artists to turn mountain town on its ear... ---Sondra Goode Spyro Gyra is coming to the Jazz Eureka! th This festive event will be held September 13 and 14th. Spyro Gyra, the world renown contemporary fusion jazz group, has been transcending the boundaries of modern jazz since they first formed back in Buffalo New York in the seventies. With over 5000 performances, 30 albums and four Grammys to their credit this band is going to blow the roof off of the AUD on September 14th. Spyro Gyra’s jam band ideology combined with their dynamic energy and multiple stylings has given them their own place in the music world. Bandleader Jay Beckenstein states it well when he said “I’ve always felt that music, and particularly instrumental music, has this non-literal quality that lets people travel to a place where there are no words.” The band has evolved over the years finally settling into the longest lasting combo of Julio Fernandez on Guitar, Scott Ambush on bass, Tom Schuman on Keyboards and piano, Bonny Bonaparte on drums and bandleader Jay Beckenstein on saxophone. I have only heard this band once over twenty years ago and it is still one of the musical highlights of my life. Last September Jazz Eureka had a great concert with Delfeayo Marsalis performing on stage in the Auditorium. “We had been doing free music in the park and decided to see if we could attract a jazz audience back to the auditorium,” says Ron Sumner, a jazz musician himself, who has been organizing Jazz Eureka since 2009. “The show was outstanding and we decided to try it again with Spyro Gyra. This year, we wanted to book a band that many people recognize but had not played in Arkansas in about 20 years. The first festival dedicated to jazz was in 1985 and featured David Grisman Quartet, David Amram and Beto and the Fairlanes. We have a strong tradition of jazz in Eureka with artists such as Chick Corea, Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Byrd, Art Porter Sr., Art Porter Jr. Cedar Walton, and so many others who have played here. We want to re-establish the tradition of world class jazz in Eureka Springs. There will be free jazz in the park this year too. The Big Band sound of The 18 piece Fayetteville Jazz Collective will be filling Basin Spring Park with cool tunes and hot numbers of all the decades of jazz and swing. This group of dedicated musicians preserves big band music through their performances all over the Midwest. This band really does swing so bring your dancing shoes. Not to be missed this unique free performance happens from 7 to 9 pm Friday Sept 13. There will be free music in the park on Saturday too. Starting at noon, Allan Gibson and First Line will bring New Orleans flair to Jazz fest this year. Gibson’s flugelhorn leads a brass section of greats through those steamy late night sounds of Coltrane, Ornette and Mingus then turns around and hits you with Armstrong and Beiderbecke. What fun! Then at 1:30 the stellar saxophonist Richard Burton and his group will be on stage. Richard is the standard of jazz in the Springfield area and has devoted fans from all over. Richard plays sax like no one else and the hills will be ringing when he starts swinging. The wonderful bassist Walter Savage takes the stage at 3pm. Hailing from California Savage takes any kind of tune and turns it into super cool swinging bass melody. Truly excited by what can be done on lead bass he says “It’s like the more you learn, the more you need to learn.” Big fun! The last act at the park before the big show at the Aud will be the NSU Jazz Sextet. The critically acclaimed NSU Jazz Studies Program is the only jazz program in the state of Oklahoma that offers a bachelor’s degree in jazz studies. The NSU Jazz Quintet is the premier jazz combo of the NSU Jazz Studies Program. Dr. Tommy Poole, will also be performing with the group at Jazz Eureka 2013. But of course there will be more music all over town, Check out the calendar or just walk the Streest of Eureka and see what you stumble upon, it’s a festival! For more information and tickets go to or . And whatever you do don’t miss Spyro Gyra! Jazz Eureka is sponsored by the Eureka Springs City and Advertising Promotion Commission.

Audiodacity is coming... ANYTHING is possible!!!

Hailing all the way from Indianapolis, IN, Audiodacity will be bringing their special blend of funk-rock fusion to Eureka Springs, Arkansas at The Voulez-Vous Lounge on Friday, August 30th and Saturday, August 31st 2013. This groovy sextet may be young, but with 75+ years of combined musical experience, they are guaranteed to keep you dancing all night and leave you wanting more. If you only go to one show this year, this is the one you SHOULD NOT MISS! After being crowned the 2012 champion of Indy’s Next Big Thing (a statewide Battle of the Bands competition sponsored by Jack Daniels, X103, and Q95), Audiodacity has quickly established themselves as one of the premier bands in the midwest. Their reputation for having dynamic, high-energy performances has made them highly sought-after, not only for large music festivals (such as Groovewalk 2013, a 13venue, live music pub crawl in Holland, MI), but also as a supporting act for national touring bands (such as GROUPLOVE, Youngblood Hawke, and Morning Parade). Boasting over 100 covers, Audiodacity is notorious for being able to deliver a diverse, live show that every single person in the crowd will enjoy, but even more impressive than their repertoire is their original music. Seamlessly blending funk, rock, blues, reggae, jazz, latin, hip-hop, and R&B into one unique sound, Audiodacity is truly at the cutting edge of musical creativity. Check out their website where you can download several tracks off their debut album for free. The Band is available for interviews and appearances. Band Members: Ben Jarvis - Vocals, Trumpet Jason Ehizokhale - Guitar, Saxophone Cody Herring - Guitar, Trumpet Mike Sheldon - Bass William Skirvin - Saxophone Adam Woodgett - Vocals, Drums

Missouri State Jazz Big Band



We’re proud to report that the ROOTS festival went off without a hitch…that is, the bands, venues and crowds were there 100%, and, other than a much needed rest on the parts of all the team who made it happen, plans have already started towards making next year’s ROOTS festival a reality. Everyone involved deserves a big round of applause along with a serious nap (or three or four…) Coming right up, it would seem, is the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ, of course. The stage is set, the plans all made and the word is out worldwide for the 11th annual rally, which is the largest family-friendly motorcycle rally in the country. What’s more, this ‘biker festival’ is a charitable event. They’ve raised nearly a million bucks for charity through the years. Our hat’s off to Joe Giles, the Mick Jagger-esque vocalist and entertainer, for all his tireless work throughout the year to bring this massive event to the forefront. Joe, of course, is the front man for Joe Giles & The Homewreckers, a former school teacher (and school principal!) who stays on top of this festival after all the bikers have gone home. Without guys like Joe this event simply would not happen. Thank you, Joe, on behalf of the tens of thousands you inspire to have a great time at this annual event… Spent a fine evening at The Phoenix the other night, watching one of the best bands to ever grace an Altered State stage: Tyrannosaurus Chicken, aka Smilin’ Bob Lewis and Rachel Ammons. These two do more for an audience than most full bands, and they seem to do so effortlessly at that. A curious mix of Delta Blues and what some might call acoustic ragtime, they are in a class by themselves. I have never seen

any act bring more sheer charisma to their performance. Never. On the bill in the coming weeks are Foley’s Van, The Pullout Method, Meet The Funkers, Goodbye June, Canopy Climbers, A Good Fight (!), Indianna & The Byrds, Lot 44, The Black Moods, The 1 Oz. Jig, Cutty Rye, HoneyShine, felsen, Take Cover, Thanks For Nothing, Stiff Neked Fools, Cadillac Jackson, Sextonic Plates, avery special guests and much more. Plus, on the 27th look for a gala reunion of Hunkr Down, one of the finest party bands in the history of The Altered State. Hunkr Down was formed in 1993, and features Kyle Gibson, guitar and vocals; Fred Bowling, guitar; Rusty Estes, bass; and Chachi Hampton on drums. They were voted the Best Rock Band in ‘98, ‘04 and ‘06, and were inducted into the Northwest Arkansas Music Awards Hall of Fame in 2007. This show will be a sellout, methinks, so get there early if you even want to get in, let alone find a place to sit down. For bookings at The Phoenix email to… The Smoke & Barrel Tavern checks in with a very substantial roster of music. Coming up are dates with National Park Radio, Eyes of Iron, Tyrannosaurus Chicken, The Sarah Hughes Band, Daikaiju, Cletus Got Shot, Mother Merey & The Black Dirt, Fire & Flood, Foxtrot Uniform, Shawn James & The Shapeshifters, The 1 Oz.

To reach them by phone call (479)444-8909……. With this warmer weather, both Jose’s are geared up with their beer gardens, as one would expect.

Mary Terry Hall

Full Line Up Announced for Jazz Eureka 2013 - Sept. 13 - 15

---Gina Parks We were Seniors at Hot Springs High School. I was somewhat of a wall flower and she was a popular T-Stepper awesome girl. Most of the girls like her were somewhat snooty but not Mary. She was the pretty girl with the big smile on her face who always had time for everyone. Mary’s family owned ‘The Club Café’. This was the popular meeting place for most of Hot Springs’ finest citizens at lunch time. The food was great and the pies were awesome. Mary learned to make these wonderful pies while working there with her family. As time passed and the café was sold Mary became famous around here for the pies only she seemed to be able to create. When the business sold, she stuck to her guns and fought in court to keep these recipes secret. I personally believe the magic was in the love and caring Mary herself put in to every pie she made. Fortunately Mary decided to open her own café and we all were lucky enough to still enjoy the sweet creations for a while longer. When it was too much to handle she started work for St. Joseph’s hospital as a dietician. Wow, those at the hospital got some real treats. So many people called to request pies for holidays and such that the hospital created a special PIE LINE phone just for her. I must say the sweetness she shared was in every thing she did, not just pies. She was sweetest I suppose to her sons, who she adored. What a wonderful woman to have as your mother and friend. She shared her life and love with two of our hometown musicians Frank Allen, a saxophone player who played locally, and Joe Hall, the love of her life. Joe has been one of the Spa City’s favorite guitar pickers for many years. It was so wonderful to see two really fine people meet, fall in love and be so happy. There are many we love and loose to cancer. Mary is surely one of the finest I’ve known and will miss in my life... ---GP

Jazz fusion band Spyro Gyra has been announced as the headline act for the 2013 Jazz Eureka festival which runs September 13 through 15. Spyro Gyra is a jazz fusion band that formed in the mid-1970s. The band’s sound has its roots in traditional jazz, but combines elements of R&B, funk and pop music and is known for their mastery over their instruments and the energy for their live performances. They have performed over five thousand shows, released twenty-nine albums selling over ten million albums while also achieving one platinum and two gold albums. Next year Spyro Gyra will celebrate forty years as a band while showing little sign of wanting to slow down either, having earned Grammy nominations for each of their last four albums. Friday evening in Basin Spring Park on Spring Street from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m, will be a Sunset Serenade with free music and a dance by the Fayetteville Jazz Collective, an 18 piece big band of Northwest Arkansas’ finest musicians. With over two centuries of combined jazz experience, the band has been thrilling audiences all around the 4-state region of Northwest Arkansas. Not to be missed, this event in Basin Park will provide all those who attend a wonderfully unique experience. Music will fill Basin Spring Park again on Saturday from noon until 7 p.m. Starting off the day will be Alan Gibson and First Line—a group that plays a style of music played in the 1920s that represents the first transition from blues to jazz. This group features Alan Gibson on flugelhorn with a stellar supporting cast of excellent area musicians including baritone saxophonist Dr. Rick Solonen, a featured artist of this summer’s Walton Arts Summer Jazz Composer Series. At 1:30 p.m. the Richard Bruton Quintet will take the stage. This legendary Springfield, Missouri tenor saxophonist leads a group of Southwest Missouri’s finest musicians doing jazz standards and modern jazz. Bruton is known for playing with an aggressive tone along with a rhythmic drive that can be heard for miles. Richard has performed with a who’s who of musicians throughout the area and the United States. The Walter Savage Trio follows at 3 p.m. Savage has a reputation for bringing the upright bass— a primarily supportive instrument--into the spotlight. Whether playing legendary bay area jazz clubs like Yoshi’s or entertaining people in venues in Northwest Arkansas, Savage lets the bass shine through as a leading force. Savage also delights crowds with his singing ability. The final act in the free music line-up for Saturday is the NSU Jazz Sextet, part of the Northeastern State University Jazz Lab, which is home to the Jazz Studies Program, currently under the direction of saxophonist/composer/arranger, Dr. Tommy Poole. Spyro Gyra will perform on Saturday, September 14th at 7:30 p.m at The Auditorium at 36 S. Main Street. Tickets are on sale now at and range from $20 to $42.50. One more free performance in the park will take place on Sunday afternoon. At 1pm the Missouri State Jazz Band will perform traditional and contemporary big band music.

As we go to press the 17th Annual Hot Springs Blues Fest is about to kick off, and the line-up is stellar. On the bill this year are Selwyn Birchwood, The John Calvin Brewer Band, Little G. Weevil, The Bart Walker Band, Ghost Town Blues Band, the Youngblood Youth Jam, Shakura S’aida, Zac Harmon, The Joe Pitts Band, Heavy Suga & The SweeTones, Samantha Fish, the Hump Night Blues Band, Salt & Pepper, The Gil Franklin Band, Southern Hospitality, The Brandon Santini Band, Rachel Coba and much more. See the feature on this on page 8, and yes, it is a rerun from last edition, but with this event gracing one of this edition’s covers it just made sense to feature it again. Now patrons digging the music can read all about the artists’ playing. If you don’t like it sue me… The Big Chill, in my opinion, is one of the nicest nightclubs in the world. Gina Parks has managed to build a strong clientele and a really sweet room…or set of them, actually, as the club has several different very cool facets. For one, part of the club is smokerfriendly, which is rare anymore. For those who would rather not partake, though, the Chill has a special separate smoke-free lounge, complete with a full bar and thick plexiglass wall separating it from the main room, all with a great music hookup from the fully visible stage with the music piped in. Downstairs at the Chill is their sports bar, complete with hugescreen tv, a full bar, pool tables and all the features of a separate bar. There is also a massive outdoor deck with an outdoor fireplace and comfortable tables and chairs, and all with full bar service. Each level has its own bathrooms, too, so you don’t have to run up and down the stairs and/or try to wade through crowds to get some, er, relief, so-to-speak. There’s no cover charge at the Big Chill, except for very special events…like the annual Nightflying anniversary parties that happen each December. But it’s the music that is the common important draw, which happens one way or another every night. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Lightnin’ Lee Langdon & The Upright Rooster, Mike Mayberry & The Slow Hands, Dave Almond, Tin Pan Alley, Jocko Deal, Shane Simanton, The Ghost Town Blues Band from Memphis, Heavy Suga & The SweeTones, The John Calvin Brewer Band, The Christine DeMeo Band, Jarekus Singleton, Trey Johnson & Dave Almond, David Ball, Dayton Waters, Joe Hall and a lot more. They also serve very fine bar food so you’re not drinking on an empty stomach. In addition, every Sunday brings DJ Chucky D., with his own take on Karaoke. And every Monday, David Ball & Brian Bearden host the stage. And Gina has just started what she calls The New Moon Jam on Mondays, with her and Heather Crosse, Lee Williams and Rena Wren hosting the stage. She invites everyone to bring their music, instruments and bods to jam. There’s a good sound system and a built in audience for anyone who wishes to test these musical waters. The Big Chill is a true musicians nightclub, and almost no matter who is actually booked, a whole bunch of players are likely

to sit in on any given night. The Chill will also be the site of several after-parties during the Hot Springs Blues Fest, featuring 2blu & The Lucky Stiffs. For bookings and other information, call (501)624-5185..... Another very cool club is the Ohio Club on Bath House Row. This is the oldest continually operating nightclub in Arkansas and perhaps the entire country. There’s real history here, and all one needs to do to feel it is to walk in that door. In addition to the Ohio Club Players, the house band, there are numberous artists who play regularly at the club. Look for Delta Donnie, Samantha Fish, Little G. Weevil, Steve Hester & Deja Voodoo, Mike Stanley, John Calvin Brewer and a lot more. And there’s never a cover charge here, whether you like it or not. The new house band is killer, too. Mike put together his own house band and the players all know each other musically well enough to be able to anticipate each other’s moves and licks. But in the meantime, make a point to drop by the club, have a drink and a meal, and boogie down with The Ohio Club Players. To reach the Ohio for directions and other information call (501)627-0702… As we told you last time out, Jester’s is no longer. Instead, welcome the return of Boogie’s Bar & Grill in the same spot Jester’s used to be. Live music will be at least every weekend, but there’s talk of adding other nights of the week to the program. Boogie’s features some very good food, in addition, of course, to the full bar service. Terrell Williams is in the kitchen, and this man knows food. So well, in fact, that I hired him to cater my wedding 6 years ago. For bookings, call Jeff or Sylvia Orrell at (501)624-5455, or email……. Caught up with The Dangerous Idiots at Maxine’s recently. This power-trio is one of the best, playing harder-edge rock and roll with the power of a locomotive…or rather three locomotives. In the coming weeks look for the likes of SX Rex, Young Internationals, Walker Lukens & The Sidearms, Ben Franks and The Bible Belt Boys, The FoulPlay Cabaret (a monthly burlesque show), Adam Faucett, Interstate Buffalo, Brick Fields, White Glove Test, Peckerwolf, Opportunist, Blackface Gypsies, Fire & Flood, John Gold, American Revival, The Coasts, Brother Rabbit, Cadillac Jackson, Shawn James & The Shapeshifters…and for a special treat, make a point to catch up to Tav Falco & The Panther Burns. (That’s only right now at presstime. These things are always subject to change, so it’s advisable to call first to make sure who you’re wanting to see is really playing…and that goes for anywhere…) For bookings call (501)321-0909……. The Superior Bath House Brewery & Distillery is up and running, but it will be Autumn before they roll out their trademark special brew. The place is open, serving food and libations, and just chock

Dave Almond & Trey Johnson



full of Hot Springs history. The bath house era happened years ago and is no longer any huge draw, save for any siteseers wandering by. It just made sense to open their brewery there. The Club will soon be bringing their own brews to fruition. I suspect that things will really start happening sometime this Fall. An interesting note here. The Superior Bath House Brewery & Distillery will be the only brewery in the world that brews its beer from naturally hot water. The Superior will also be doing music soon. Call them at (501)624-2337. Will have more on this as it develops so watch for it……. The Crosswalk Bar & Grill has live music and/or a dj every night, and serves excellent fare (especially the barbecue). Every Monday there is free pool; every Tuesday is Service Industry Night; on Wednesday Dean Agus performs; every Thursday the Spa City Rock & Roll Society sponsors an open jam; and there are bands every weekend. Coming up are dates with Shari Bales & Mike Taber, Jocko Deal, Jamie Jones and the Outlaws and more. There is a full bar, a hot sound system, live djs, and very good food, especially when John Dean fires up that smoker. The club is located directly across from Oaklawn and is open every day. There’s never a cover charge here, either. For more information, call (501)624-9192....... Lucky’s Bar & Grill has live bands every weekend. Set to appear in the coming weeks are Terri & The Executives Crash Meadows, Jason Greenlaw & The Groove, the Karla Case Band, Raising Grey and more. Lucky’s is open 7 days a week, serves lunch and dinner, has a full bar, live bands on weekends, pool tables, arcades and a fine stereo system, and it’s smoker-friendly. There’s never a cover charge at Lucky’s and the food is topnotch. For bookings call the club at (501)622-2570…

Boogie’s Is Back! (501)624-5455

Music is a language that transcends everything. Regardless of skin color, social status, economics, religion, education, whatever label people adhere to, music is the thread that can bind total strangers. It creates friendships and memories. Music can take you to another place and time with a single note. It’s in us. That ancient rhythm stirs us when we hear it, makes us feel happy or melancholy, takes us down the hallways of our memories and leaves us with a smile that warms our souls. I’ve been blessed to have been a part of the music business for several years now and have made many friends because of it. Some of them were purely by accident, strangers met at a gig, a shared beer or a short conversation that led to lasting connections. As a result, when I get the opportunity to travel I have friends just about everywhere. I travel a lot with my day job and, as luck would have it, land in places where I do know people in the music business. My co-workers find it amazing that I can seek out old friends and music just about anywhere we go in the good ol’ US of A. In fact, one of my co-workers recently made a bet with me while we were on a business trip that I couldn’t find music in a small mid-western town on a Monday night. Challenge accepted! And I did find live music on a Monday night in a small mid-western town. Now, it was a guitar workshop at the local Lutheran church but, hey, it was live music. And no, we didn’t go terrorize the good church folk. I’m pretty sure I scored some points with the big maestro upstairs on that one. I’ve been on the road quite a bit of late for conferences, meetings and a little vacation time to see family. Everywhere I’ve been music has been floating in the background, providing the glue that pulled the trips together. I was in Charlotte, NC, for a few days and hooked up with a couple of buds that were formerly in the band WSNB (We Sing Nasty Blues). Willie Shane Johnston and Clay ‘The Professor’ Ford took me under their collective wings for an evening of greasy food and local music. I met these cats at the International Blues Challenge several years back when WSNB made the finals. I was instantly drawn to their music with its raw, gritty sound of heavy blues. Johnston’s vocals are raspy and deep and his songwriting paints a canvas covered with voodoo queens and late night heartbreak. WSNB made a few appearances in Arkansas over the years creating new fans as they went. The guys have since changed personnel, adding a new guitar player and reforming as The Red Dirt Revelators. They’ll still be playing cuts from the WSNB catalog but will be adding some new music on the forthcoming RDR disc. The guys took me to a local greasy spoon burger joint called The Penguin, famous for its variety of specialty burgers and hot dogs. We enjoyed some Charlotte original food and contemplated the infinite before rolling off to the famous (infamous?) Double Door Inn, host to acts such as BB King and Eric Clapton over the years. Tonight we would be seeing a couple of local legend bands, The Aqualads and The Belmont Playboys. I was in for a great night. The Aqualads are a surf rock band that formed in 1996 and are still going strong with two of the original members steadily writing fresh surf music. With six albums to their credit and another to be released soon, The Aqualads are proving their Oceanside music is relevant in the land locked area where they play. They have had several of their songs picked up for movie soundtracks over the years. The Belmont Playboys formed in 1989 and have six albums to their credit also. Self described as ‘Neorockabilly psychopunk heavydeathmetal rapfunk fusion band. From Hell.’, the Playboys rocked out to a packed Double Door. They were a high energy band that delivered some great rock and roll. The highlight of their set was a very cool and well done version of Merle Haggard’s ‘Mama Tried’, laying it down as a slow burning rocker. The crowd at the Double Door was an interesting lot, dressed in short sleeve western cut shirts or t-shirts with the sleeves rolled up, blue jeans rolled up at the bottom to create a cuff and flat black boots. Very 50’s-ish, beatnik style to say the least. Bass player Mookie Brill was in the house, hanging out and chatting folks up, providing the very portrait that summed up the evening. Brill has won a number of Blues Music Awards over the years and is a local at the Inn. The Double Door itself is an old two story house that is gutted on the first floor to hold a stage on one side and a bar on the other. It had the vibe of some of the old fraternity houses I

used to frequent back in the 80’s. It’s definitely a place you want to add to your musical bucket list. I felt like I was in the midst of a Quentin Tarrantino flick all evening with the cast of characters in the crowd and on the stage and the music that filled the room. I almost expected Tarrantino to walk through the crowd, give a nod and a ‘Hey, how ya doin’?’. As I write this issue’s column I’m actually sitting in a Seattle suburb, hanging out with my kids and grandkids. Indulge a proud paw paw for just a few lines if you will. I have nine (count’em, nine) wonderful grandchildren, the latest just seven weeks old in the Seattle area. I was able to take the oldest, my five year old Kenzie, of this particular branch of the family tree with me to a music show this week to hear a Seattle blues-rock band called Dirty Rice. The band’s bass player is Scotty Harris who played with Lee Oskar, former harp player for the seminal rock-funk band WAR, a couple of years back at the Hot Springs Blues Festival. Harris played sax at the festival but is an accomplished bass player by trade. He and I hit it off at the festival and have been friends since. Harris hosted my bride and I at his home for dinner recently where we were able to share our love of music, trading stories about the folks we knew and how it was all connected. Yet another example of how music binds all of us, even when we aren’t aware of it. Turns out Scotty’s wife, Lissa, played bass for Lee Oskar’s band for several years and is quite an accomplished bass player herself. She plays in several bands in the Seattle area as does her hubby. I learned the two of them have traveled the country before, performing a sax and bass duo bit that proved to be quite successful.

Cowboy Jack Clement We shared stories from the road all evening, enjoyed Scotty’s home cooked meal (he’s the cook in the family) and further meshed together a bond that only people who get music can appreciate. Mucho thanks and love to the Harris clan for being wonderful hosts and great people. The Snoqualmie Casino is just up the road from where my kids live. We managed to make it to a couple of really cool events during our visit. One was a cigar night hosted by a new line of cigars called My Father, highlighting their new blends La Duena and El Centurion. I got the opportunity to meet three of the movers and shakers in the cigar industry, Jaime Garcia, Janny Garcia and Pete Johnson. Johnson is the creator of the popular cigar line Tatuage. While we were there for the event we met and hung out with a couple from the Washington area who shared a love of the blues. Tommy Carson and Jamie Rohweder are both involved in the South Sound Blues Association, one of two blues societies in Washington state. Carson serves on their board of directors and emcees a number of charity and music events, including the association’s local blues challenge. As we talked the evening away we found out that the couple had been to the International Blues Challenge a few years ago when local act Randy Oxford finished third in the competition. We discovered that we had more than likely crossed paths on Beale Street that year! Once again, music connects us even when we don’t know it. It is a link, a bond that can make total strangers friends. For our last night in the Seattle area our kids treated us to a concert at the casino. Frankie Valli was on the bill and put on a great show, sharing his and The Four Seasons greatest hits and then some, rolling through classics like ‘My Eyes Adored You’, ‘Sherry’, ‘Walk Like A Man’ and many more. Valli still has one of the most recognizable voices in the business. At 79 years young he had no issue leading the way

for the sixteen piece band that backed him, including four back-up singers that provided the dance motions and hand jives that brought back to life the wonderment of the Jersey boys. On the stage with him were five horns from the Seattle area that had been brought in for the show. And, another musical connection that spans the ages, Valli’s band leader and keyboard player has been with him thirty four years, a partnership that is unheard of in today’s music industry. My son-in-law made an observation about the musical community we circle in. He noted that wherever we seemed to go we knew someone. We had the connections to spend the night, catch a ride or get a meal, regardless of the area where we lit. We share our home with musicians who are traveling through, hosting lots of friends from across the states and even a few from other countries (Canada & Germany to be exact). He stated that the entire musical community seemed to embrace these very ideas. The notion of having a place to land or just someone to hang out with with you’re in the vicinity. And he’s right. That is the way the musical community works, at least the one I float around in. It’s an open group who tend to take care of each other armed with only the knowledge that it will come back around when their time arrives. Connections. Common ground. A feeling of mutual respect and care. On a somber note it is with deep sadness and great respect that I say goodbye to one of the all time great rebel rousers and innovators in the music business…Cowboy Jack Clement. For those uninitiated to the man, Cowboy Jack was the guy who recorded Jerry Lee Lewis’ first two audition songs for Sam Phillips; put out Charley Pride’s first album; produced U2’s groundbreaking album Rattle and Hum; and wrote countless songs for many people. He was one of the agitators and innovators that turned the Nashville traditionalists on their collective ears. I was discussing Cowboy Jack with my bride, Sherree, telling her everything I knew about him when the discussion turned to his efforts on the Rattle and Hum album. Sherree was working at Sun Studio at the time that record was being made and was able to meet the guys from U2 and Clement. Rattle and Hum was one of my favorite releases by U2. Cowboy Jack, one of my all time heroes in the music biz, was the producer. My wonderful bride was in the middle of all of it. Here we are some twenty plus years later, making another connection through music. That music can connect us and give us a common denominator as a society I believe is a given. The musician and non-musician alike can attest to those connections. Closer to home I have recently been privy to some great meshing of souls on stage at a few local jam sessions. The Spa City Blues Society hosts several events around Hot Springs throughout the month including the weekly Hump Night Blues Jam, the Youngblood Blues Jam and Second Sunday Blues. In a matter of days I watched three incredible nights of music as players who had never performed together before pulled off magical moments during the jams. The Hump Night Jam saw musicians who were new to town and some who were simply there on vacation come together to throw down some pretty tasty jams. By the second song of the set five players who had never met before came together and brought the house down. Later in the week at the Youngblood Jam, a youth jam for kids under 21, the same thing happened. Young people who had never met before that night came together, music being their common language, to lay down some very nice blues. Finally, during the Sunday event, songwriters John Calvin Brewer, Ana Jordan-Williams and Joe Pitts provided the backdrop for a songwriter’s night, sharing their music and the stories behind their songs. It is a magical thing to see performers pay tribute to one another by playing along with each other’s songs, some they’ve only heard once, maybe twice. The point of my description of these three evenings is what I’ve been blathering about for the entire column. The music tied these strangers together, even if only briefly. It brought everyone to a common ground and while they were there, they made magic happen. From my vantage point, life can be pretty simple. A home filled with a loving family. Good friends to pass the time with. Great food, good whiskey and a nice cigar. In the background of all of it is the music. It’s our soundtrack to our lives, the thing that feeds our emotions. It’s the thing that connects us. Take some time during these last days of summer to get out and support the music in your local community. Join a blues society. Go to a music festival. Get out and support your favorite performers. I know you feel it when you are there. You can’t help it. It’s in you. Take advantage of it and let the music wash over you, take you to those places you love. Go make your connections. I’ll be watching for you backstage... ---DH



Getting wet in Harrison:

The only constant in life is ‘change’ ---Joe Harless In every man’s life there is a time for telling and a time for listening. This is my telling time and I hope you’re listening. We have had more than our share of rain this last month which doesn’t make more music but the creeks and rivers are plum full and flowing, so grab your canoes, kayaks, tubes and guitars and head north for a weekend of frolic. First off I have a story to tell about change. Now change is always happening but it’s not always good. Let me explain: You see my wife likes KFC chicken so she talked me into taking her there in Harrison for lunch the other day for the buffet. We walked in and I wandered off checking it out while she paid, cause she always has all the money. To my surprise and horror there was NO pickled okra, NO collard greens, NO hominy and NO Crystal hot sauce. I said, “Hey, hold on a minute.” I ran outside for a look-see, I thought maybe we had been teleported (science fiction like) up north to Minnesota or something. But I saw a mimosa tree and a blue healer in a pickup truck with a rebel flag on the front, so I knew for sure we were still in Arkansas. We went ahead and ate, because she had already smelled the chicken. The chicken was real good, and I ate too much again, but sure miss the fixins. If you ask me, old Colonel Sanders probably has bruises all over his shoulders from turning over in his grave. Why does good stuff have to change? I’m done griping now, so on with the music stuff. Over at the Harrison Brick Oven Pizza they have a great lineup of entertainment. On September 6th, the Ground Rattlers are going to rock your country. On September 10th, get down and dirty with the Dirt Dogs. Then on September 20th, the band Blind Driver will be playing. On September 24th, it will be S X Rex and on October 1st, R K Ellis is going to lay it all out for you. October 11th will be The Three Story Trio. (Since that’s the group I play harmonica with, you’re more than welcome to come and sit in with us. Consider this your personal invitation.) When we played there last month, I invited our accountant to come in and play. He said he could play guitar, and since accountants don’t ever lie, I thought it would be ok. Well Tom came in and schooled us on how it’s done. We just gave him the stage, got a beer and listened. He did all originals and did them good. Isn’t it amazing how many really talented music people there are in this world, and you just never know? The Brick Oven has great food, cold beer and a killer outdoor patio. The music if from 8 to 11 P.M., so after running the Buffalo, come and join in the fun. We haven’t nailed this down for absolute, but this article, thus myself, are on a deadline so I’ll just shotgun it at you. The Brick Oven is in negotiation with the Tony Holiday Band as part of their next East coast tour. They’ve played South by Southwest, Powell-A-Palooza and The House of Blues Fest. They’ve opened for the Charlie Daniels Band, Guitar Shorty and Eric McFadden. You get the idea…this will be one smokin’ show and worth a road trip to Boone County. Go


to You Tube and click on Adam Gussow and Tony Holiday. They’re playing one of Tony’s original songs, “Weep and Moan” (isn’t You Tube cool?) The show will be either October 25 or Saturday, October 26. So if you’re feeling the need to fill up on some high octane blues/rock, this band will do you righteous! Call and find out the exact date. The info number is 870741-0012. This will be the first national tour show they will put on, so it’s kind of exciting. I’ll be there covering it for Nightflying. There is a mom and pop pizza shop on the Harrison downtown square, where they’re doing their part to keep the live music flowing called Ugo’s Pizza. They book a lot of younger bands, and if you’re into alternative rock, blues and jazz, with some awesome food, try this place out. On August 31st, they will have a band called Backwards Paradise that will take their stage. They are more acoustic rock style and everybody I’ve asked has said they’re serious hot. So go check them out. Then on September 14th, a band called Hollows Depp will fill the heavy rock slot. Opie’s is just north of Harrison on the scenic Highway 7, and they’re cranking it out every Saturday night with bands like Dee’s and Friends, which is a true rock and roll outfit. They do the kind of songs that I love to play, such as “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, “Honky Tonk Woman” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” I’m talkin’ dance-’til-you’re-sweaty music. They’re a great band to party with. Another band that plays Opie’s is Honey Cut & The Ranch Hands, an honest to goodness country band. Did I say real country? So give Opie’s a call to see whose playing, the info number is 870743-6493. Oh I forgot, they have karaoke every Thursday and Friday night. Labor Day weekend is coming up and we’re having a party up here where I live in Diamond City, Arkansas. On August 31st the good folks at the Diamond City Lakeside Resort are putting on a free concert featuring the amazing Rebel Hounds, one of the most unique and enjoyable bands around. Think modern day acoustic jug band fueled by the spirit of Johnny Cash. This is foot stompin’ good time music, with guitar, washtub bass, electric jug and the creamy deep vocals of Bo Johnson. Bring your lawn chairs and fishing poles to the Diamond City Lakeside Resort on August 31st, and fill up the big empty for free. The info number is 870-422-2668. Adrian and Katie, the owners, are doing their part to support live music in our neck of the woods. We’re all working hard to make the Lakeshore District, the Sugarloaf area, the North Arkansas Peninsula, the Lead Hill/ Diamond City area, or whatever you want to call it, the place to go for a good time. It’s easy to find, take the Arkansas Scenic Route 7 as far north as you can go, stop when you’re at the marina and campground on Bull Shoals Lake, and you’re here. In the next issue I will have a special story to tell you about a guitar that went through hell. ‘Till next time, hug your momma!

Late in the month of March… this year, a customer emailed me a link to a video of a guitar player… I click on it… and… I saw a guitar being tuned. Then… there was the guitarist. He was young, late twenties, sitting with the instrument in his lap. A voice, from off camera, called out “Mark? Junior called… says he can’t make the gig tonight… how you gonna’ play that banjo song by your self?” He reaches down next to him and opens another guitar case, retrieves a double necked, ovation, places capos strategically on the necks and begins to play… “Da da da da da da da da

concert was to be held. It sold out. The evening of the concert was magical! I had lined up two opening acts for Mark: First - A long time friend of mine, Ken Tuestch, is an accomplished actor and comedian. One of his many characters include: “Rudy Terwil-

Ken Teutsch liger – Emerging Country Music Superstar”. And, Secondly - Friend and customer, Buddy Case, who is a proficient finger-picking guitarist and singer/songwriter in his own right. Buddy performs across the country as well and I hope to have him hold a “finger-

---Bob Boyd Some of you Nightflying readers would like to know how Boyd Music Center began. This will be Part I of the story. In the late 1950s and early 1960s there were only 7 major American professional guitar brands: Epiphone, Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Guild, Martin and Rickenbacker. If you wanted to buy one of these pro quality guitars, you had to buy it from a music store. Not all stores had all brands. For example, in Little Rock, Reed Music Co. (now out of business) had only Gretsch and Martin. Bean Music Co. (also gone now) had Gibson. Rosen Music had Gibson and Fender. So far as I know, there was not a Rickenbacker, Epiphone or Guild dealer in Little Rock. In March of 1962, after having worked at Rosen Music for 5 years, I opened Boyd Music Center. I was a big dumb 25 year old kid. I was too dumb to be afraid to “go for the gold.” There were 4 big music stores in downtown Little Rock. Almost all retail stores were downtown then. How did I think I could compete with them? I truly was the new kid on the block, except I couldn’t afford to rent downtown. So I rented an old frame building that once was a neighborhood grocery store. I “hung out my shingle,” a small “Boyd Music Center” sign with “Music” in red neon. I was all enthusiasm, with lots of ambition but no money and no “know-how.” I even built my own display fixtures out of two by fours and fir plywood. I found I could get the “cheapy” guitar brands, like Harmony, Kay, Daneletro, Supro and National from a catalog. But at first, the “big 7” pro guitar makers wouldn’t give me the time of day. Then the Fender sales agent, Bob Dayton, whose home was in Little Rock, came and saw my little store and liked what I was doing out there in my tiny little shop, so he set me up as a Fender franchised dealer. By 1964, my little 500 square foot shop was so crowded with students, instruments, accessories and customers that I had to find a bigger store space. The Treadway carpet and tile folks came to my rescue and leased me 3200 square feet in their brand new building, also on West 12th but almost 2 miles farther west. In those days, that was considered “out in the boonies” from downtown. Now we had 7 soundproof teaching studios and a big guitar classroom. One by one, I acquired the other 6 major pro guitar lines, until I had all major brands under one roof. My store was “wall-to-wall guitars.” I didn’t know it at the time, but I was pioneering a new type of store. Stay tuned for Part II of the Boyd Music saga next month. To reach me in cyberspace, send a note to If you have suggestions for future articles, need work done on your stringed instrument, are looking for a new or pre-loved guitar… or you just need a set of strings… Come by and visit Little Rock Frets the next time you’re near Baskin Robbins on Rodney Parham Road in West Little Rock… I’m right behind that ice cream shop! You can snail-mail me at Bryon Knight/Little Rock Frets, 10020 N. Rodney Parham Rd. Little Rock, AR 72227 Or… email me at

da…” So begins the song “Dueling Banjos” I exclaimed out loud: ”Holy Cow! This guy is great… but… I’ve never heard of Mark Kroos… Have I been living under a rock?” I showed the video to customers in my shop… I shared it with friends on “social media”… all to rave reviews… so… I decided to contact him. Mark, I own a small Stringed instrument and amplifier Repair/Sales/Service shop... and... I guess that I have been living under a rock... I just found out about you this morning via an email from one of my customers. If ever you are through Little Rock, Arkansas... please contact me and perhaps I can book a “pick up’ gig for you and /or hold a small clinic in my shop. I wish you the best in your musical career and if ever you are in town, please stop in my little shop and say hi! His response: Hi Bryon, thanks for the email! It’s pretty rare that I pass through Arkansas but I recently started seeing a girl from out there so who knows? Might have to go meet her family sometime! Regardless though, it looks likely that I’ll be in Memphis around July 21st though nothing is confirmed yet - I might be able to get out there on the 22nd or 23rd - that’s a Monday or Tuesday. How would you like the idea of a House Concert / Clinic at your shop? How many people do you think you could bring out to it? Thanks Bryon! Mark A few more detailed emails… and we had it all settled… On June 23rd, 2013 Little Rock Frets sponsored it’s first concert!… well… OK second… my first was Doyle Dykes back in October 2010… but… this was the first… er… in this location! Tickets sold for $25.00 and included BBQ from the famous Terry Lynn’s, where the


Buddy Case picking” clinic sometime soon. Mark performed several of his original songs, all of which were truly enchanting… then he announced: “ …When you perform a song on a social media site… and, for whatever reason, it becomes so popular… that, now, every time that I perform somewhere… I am EXPECTED to perform it as well…” He then began to suggest that his rendition, that night, might not rise to our expectations… Once he began, I knew that Mark was on the stage and, if there were mistakes, they were minuscule in conjunction with his stage presence and truly God-Gifted talent. The night was a success. I tried to, personally, thank each and every one of the people who were in attendance. I am truly bless to have such loyal Customer/Friends. On September 30th, I will hold another event but this time it will be a guitar CLINIC. Unfortunately, the event is currently SOLD OUT. It is, after all, A Three-Hour-Bring-YourGuitar clinic with Tommy Emmanuel. If you don’t know who he is, be sure to search the web for his name. I plan to have another event on January 27th, 2014… Details to come!

The new D’Agelico Excel

---Steve Evans I think the new D’Angelico Excel is one of the coolest things we have had for sale in the 38 year history of Jacksonville Guitar Center. Salesman Bobby Appleby says “it’s THE coolest thing we’ve ever had for sale.” Bobby likes it as a jazz guitar, although I bought one to get that “western swing” look in my “Bluegrass Bombers” band. Bobby and I both like the high quality at a low price. The original Excels from the 1940’s and 1950’s can sell for $58,000.00 as collector’s items, but this new Korean-made reproduction sells for $1,149.00 and comes with a hardshell case. The D’Angelico Excel is available in natural or sunburst and either finish looks really good. Considering they are both the same price, I chose natural. Do you realize that some companies charge extra for natural? The up-charge for a natural finish on a new Gibson jazz guitar is $500.00! The D’Angelico comes with a traditional ebony bridge intonated for jazz music with a wound G string. I like to use an unwound G so I put a gold-plated Gibson Tune-O-Matic bridge on my guitar, and it fit perfectly atop the D’Angelico ebony base. If you have never heard of D’Angelico guitars, I bet you have at least seen a picture of one. The Mel Bay popular guitar method books have had a D’Angelico on the cover for as long as I can remember. John D’Angelico started his luthier training at the age of nine as an apprentice helping build violins and mandolins at a shop owned by his granduncle, Raphael Ciani. When he was 27 years old, D’Angelico opened his own shop to make guitars. The year was 1932, the place was New York City. From D’Angelico’s first guitar in 1932 until his death in 1964, John D’Angelico made 1,164 guitars, each one considered a masterpiece in today’s vintage guitar market. Standard features on the original D’Angelico guitars included a hand-carved spruce top and carved maple back, maple sides and neck, ebony fingerboard, and mother-of-pearl inlays. D’Angelico made several models and one-of-a-kinds, but his most popular guitars proved to be the “New Yorker” and “Excel” models. Both were very large jazz guitars. The New Yorker was 18” and the Excel 17” wide at the lower bout. Many great guitar players have played D’Angelico guitars including Johnny Smith, Mary Kaye, Bucky Pizzarelli, Billy Bauer, and many more. Chet Atkins even played a D’Angelico up until he became a Gretsch endorser in 1955. The new 2013 D’Angelico Excel shown in the accompanying photos is 17” wide at the lower bout and is 3” deep. It features a spruce top with flame maple back and sides. These woods are not hand-carved like the originals, but are laminated like a Gibson ES-175. The neck is made of maple with an ebony fingerboard and comes with Grover Imperial tuners. All metal parts are gold-plated including the D’Angelico engraved “stairstep” tailpiece, the tuning machines, and the “Johnny Smith-style” mini-humbucking pickup. The pickup was designed by Kent Armstrong (son of guitar designer, Dan Armstrong) and is a “floating” pickup which means it does not touch the top of the guitar and does not affect the acoustic qualities of the guitar. Besides the absolute beauty of the new Excel, it plays and sounds great! To see one in person, drop by Jacksonville Guitar Center, in Jacksonville. For information about the entire line of D’Angelico guitars go to or to see a short video of Bobby Appleby demonstrating the D’Angelico Excel (model #EXL-1), go to www. and use search words “Nightflying D’Angelico.”

The advice column for people too sick to seek professional help Dear Ed: Your answers to people are completely off the wall, and quite frankly, ridiculous. In fact, I suspect you use your column more to ridicule people and push your own political agenda than actually give any worthwhile advice to those in need. C’mon Ed…give us some real advice about life, the universe and everything. All you do is make up phony platitudes to pass yourself off as some kind of expert. Signed, J. Falwell Dear J.: I rather like the sound of your name, “J.” Actually I consult many sources for the wisdom found in this column. But since this column exists for the helplessly hopeless to gain insights about life, the universe and everything, I only have this to say to you: make sure you always know where your towel is, and don’t sweat it when someone drops a fish in your ear…it just might help you hear the truth you currently turn a deaf ear and closed mind to... Signed, Audially tuned in Ed Dear Ed: Once again I turn to you for some advice. Thing is, I forgot what I was writing to you about, so I thought I’d ask you what it was. Oh yeah, I remember. What do you think about both Washington and Colorado fully legalizing the recreational use of marijuana? Do think it’s wise? Do you support it? Are you planning to move there? Do you smoke it? Do you like it? Let me know, as I have a bet with my girlfriend and a tub of Haagen-Daz and a package of Oreos is riding on it. I’m betting you’re against it. Signed, Smitty Tulsa, Oklahoma Dear Smitty, I’m afraid you lost that bet. I’m not…I mean…what I mean to say is, um, what was the question? Oh yeah, I remember. I think it’s a wise move on the parts of both states. Let’s face it: the crime rate has gone down in both states (since they’re not arresting people any more for the use and possession of pot), and their cash coffers are much more robust due to all the taxes being paid due to the now legal sale and use of the herb. And that’s just it, too. This is an easily grown substance with proven medical uses… one that has some very useful and healthy aspects, that was only made illegal so as to placate the American mob when Prohibition was dropped, and done so only because the federal government knew that since booze running was the mob’s primary industry, lifting Prohibition was cutting into the mob’s business. And since so many of our ‘public servants’ were in the mob’s pocket (and in my opinion, still are), it was the only way to ensure they could keep those mob dollars flowing into the politician’s

pockets. The two healthiest things for the human body are nutrition and rest. The main effect marijuana seems to have is to make people want to eat and sleep. Now then, Smitty, I won’t deny that I once tried smoking it, but I did not inhale. After all, I need to preserve my future political viability you know. And that is my position. But I guess it depends on your definition of is, of course… Signed, No longer presidential material Ed Dear Ed: You’ve stated that our former president Bill Clinton is a friend of yours, but then you proceed to make fun of him all the time. What gives? And is that your real name? Signed, Curious Cleveland, Ohio Dear Curious: Is that your real name? I apologize to you if you feel that I make fun of Bill Clinton. I am friends with the man, actually, and his brother Roger, as I was especially so with their mother, Miss Virginia. Truth is, she and I were drinkin’ buddies once upon a time when I used to play the clubs in Hot Springs. Of course, I knew a couple of her favorite songs and would always play them when I saw her come in - she tipped well, believe me. (By the way, her two favorite songs, at least that I knew, were Harry Chapin’s “Taxi”, and Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Mr. Bojangles,” about dancer Bill Robinson, who taught Shirley Temple how to tap dance and appeared in many of her films. It was Miss Virginia that taught me that fact of history…) Thing is, she was a class act across the board…much like Debbie Reynolds in the movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown. She could be loud and maddeningly boysterous, but was a genuinely kind and lovable woman who would do just about anything for you if she thought you needed it. Actually, that’s exactly how I honestly feel about Bill, too. He was a great president, our country had a balanced budger, he has a fine sense of humor, and what’s more, is a musician, too. And he genuinely cares about his fellow human beings. I believe that if he could have run again after two terms, he would have been re-elected in a landslide. But back to your question. I don’t how things are in Ohio, but down South everyone tends to rib their friends. It is good-natured and no harm or insult is meant, and it actually seems to strenthen friendships. It certainly makes them more fun… I think it’s because in these parts we try not to take ourselves too seriously, and that’s one of the best things about the South.

Best of Burger (1949 - 1998)

St. Gypsy Woman

ARIES (March 21-April 19) The life you have chosen begins to become a source of deep concern to close family and friends as the price of wool continues to plummet. Though the life of a shepherd, especially in this geographic area, may give pause for thoughts regarding job security, you should steadfastly bide in the field you have chosen. If push should ever come to shove, you can always fall back on your training as a snow-cone salesman or a slimy two-bit grifter…

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ‘Til the rivers all run dry, ‘til the oceans no longer are salty, ‘til the stars no longer shine, Taurus will always believe what he believes...beyond convincing, trust, logic, or pain...hence the high number of Taureans on the membership roles of the Flat Earth Society…

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) When man was first conceived of in the innermost portals of divine thought, Gemini sprang forth as the ideal, the model for what we now know as humankind. Mister Doright. Mister I’m OK You’re OK. The Gemini is always there...if only to serve as the apex of human expectation…

LEO (July 23-August 22) It’s past time the Leo got a break...keep your chins up... shoot for the moon...and, at times of confusion and low self-esteem, invoke the ever-workable “I don’t take no crap from nobody and if I’m wrong I’ll apologize later” rule. Don’t despair...I’ve seen things go on like this for months and then turn off reeaal bad…

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) There ain’t nothin’ that the Virgo can’t or won’t try. Unfortunately, their success rate is far below their willingness quotient...

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) The balance, always eager to espouse his belief on right and wrong, good and bad, black and white...the Libra never can decide on sweetened or unsweetened, smoking or non-smoking, jalapeño or plain, et cetera...

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Lay low; don’t invest; double your insurance; store a large quantity of food; accept no invitations; cross your fingers; beware of dogs; try nothing new; don’t blow your own horn; always travel with a clean pair of socks…

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) This isn’t gonna be a good year for rela-tionships... your mother will change her name (for numero-logical

CANCER (June 21-July 22) This year should hold many unusual opportunities for the Cancer who is willing to sit up and take notice. Your opinions and expertise are held as valuable beyond price...but, alas, only by you…

“...there’s one way to find out if a man is honest...ask him. If he says “Yes” you know he is a crook...” ---Groucho Marx



purposes) to Yolanda, Queen of Iguanas and remove you as sole beneficiary of her estate in favor of a Prussian tap dancer who is the head of a small cult of Bill “Bojangles” Robinson worshippers located outside Cleveland, Ohio. Your spouse will divorce you in order to become a fully-devoted Amway salesperson and your two teenaged children will spend $2000 of their college fund on legal expenses to have you legally declared a dweeb. Shave your head ands become a Telly Savalas stand-in…

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) The Capricorn is often taken for granted. An early 19th century political movement which proposed that all Capricorns be deported could account for an extreme lack of self-confidence. High water weight gain is the accepted sci-entific explanation for the Capricorn’s need to eat off your plate and sleep in your front improvement in sight…

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) A glimmer of hope is all the Aquarian needs to go on. Unfortunately, he often mistakes turn signals and caution lights for that aforementioned, long-sought glimmer…

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Ah, last but not least...the yard carp of society’s lawn decorations...the Pisces, though not too smart nor too athletic, the pisces is always willing to step in and help.... The Pisces has many redeeming features, but the one that stands out in everyone’s mind is: you can always count on the Pisces to bring Halloween candy to an Easter egg hunt… © 1989 Nightflying Publications.
