Bowery Station Music Schedule (April 17 - 21)

posted Apr 15, 2019, 8:05 AM by Matt Gardi

What an honor to have Blues legend Brody Buster wrap up last week, we will do our best to get him back when his travels allow...he's thinking perhaps November...

But that doesn't mean that we still don't have an action packed week of the best live music coming down the pike.... check this one out....

Wednesday, April 17 - Matt Gardi hosts as BS Open Mic rolls from 5-7pm.  Please note the 5pm start time, and the 7pm end time for Open Mic performers as we have a Spotlight on the Mic scheduled from 7-9pm featuring Josh Norman.  Spotlights are our way of allowing some artists to play for longer than the normally allotted 3 or 4 songs of Open Mic. Josh has been a rising star at Open Mic and we are pushing his limits to try and get a 2 hour show under his belt, so this should be a real treat.  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this week we are raising funds for the Friends of the St. Vincent Island National Wildlife Refuge, in anticipation of our fundraiser scheduled on Sunday, April 28, a Jimmy Buffett Tribute featuring Sticky Too! 

Thursday, April 18 - Singer/Songwriter George Maddox joins us for a show from 6-9pm.  George plays a great mix of originals and covers, finding a home between country, americana and even a little southern rock.  George loves to share his love of the Forgotten Coast within his songs and is another one of those artists that help create a musician centric environment as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.

Friday, April 19 - We start the day with the debut of Brad Foutch from 3-6pm.  Brad is an extraordinary performer that can light up a stage with his amazingly energetic guitar and heartfelt vocals.  We had the pleasure to catch one of his shows at Fathoms a few months ago, and knew he would be a great asset to the Bowery Station stage. Bard will surely light up a Friday afternoon in Apalach. Then, Few Miles South returns for a Friday night from 7-10pm.  "Few Miles South is bringing back that classic country sound and honky-tonk atmosphere” (Skope Magazine). Created by south GA raised Blake English and Los Angeles native Tori Lund, fans of traditional country twang, pedal steel guitar and honest story telling are in for a treat.  Tori and the gang have been packing Bowery Station with their ever increasing local fan base from as far as Tally and Panama City... so the proverbial "get a seat early" warning will be applied.

Saturday, April 20 - Bill Pandolfi and Wayne Britt come into town for one of their signature duo performances from 2:30-5:30pm.  Bill and Wayne can cover just about any genre, and both can make their guitars sing as they love getting on stage and sharing their talents.  Then, the Blue Begonias join us for a debut show from 6:30-10pm.   The Blue Begonias is a Grateful Dead tribute band based in Tallahassee, Florida. Featuring Mickey Abraham (Belle and the Band), Chris Skene (Revival), Brian Durham (the New 76ers), Reo Morris (Fungle Junk, Little Band in the Sky), and David Mendelsohn.  All of these musicians stand tall on their own in terms of talent and performance, it will be an honor to have them join us collectively as the Blue Begonias as they pay tribute to the Dead .... on April 20th no less.

Sunday, April 21 - .Boo Radley joins us for a show from 5-8pm!  One of the finest duos to play the Southeast, Patty and Michael join us from Nashville as they combine their voices for intense harmonies accompanied by Michael's incredible guitar arrangements for a performance of their own brand of Americana.  A primarily original show that fans have come to love, this will make for a fantastic Sunday evening for any original live music enthusiast!

Looking for something to do...don't let the doldrums drag you down as we always have some tasty live music cooking at Bowery Station....  our entire schedule is in realtime at bowerystation.us .

See you at the show....

Epic! Amazing!  Incomprehensible!  These exclamations and more were what the masses were saying after last Sunday's Battle in the Bowery!!  John Sutton and Bo Spring put on one of the most memorable performances to  have ever occurred on the Bowery Station stage, and I know I speak for everyone in attendance...thank you to both these gifted guys for sharing their skills with us.

But fear not, as OCBC continues to brew Hooter Brown... we here at the live music factory will continue to cook up more goodies for the growing throngs of the live music enthusiasts that continue to support our efforts at Bowery Station...  here is what we have this week!

Wednesday, April 10 - Matt Gardi hosts as BS Open Mic rolls from 5-7pm.  Please note the 5pm start time, and the 7pm end time for Open Mic performers as we have a Spotlight on the Mic scheduled from 7-9pm featuring Hobson Fulmer.  Spotlights are our way of allowing some artists to play for longer than the normally allotted 3 or 4 songs.  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this week we are raising funds for the Friends of the St. Vincent Island National Wildlife Refuge, in anticipation of our fundraiser scheduled on Sunday, April 28, a Jimmy Buffett Tribute featuring Sticky Too!  Speaking of.....

Thursday, April 11 - Sticky Too joins us for a show from 6-9pm as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.  Tim and Jay can play just about any genre, and can always feel out the crowd to play just the perfect set list.  Either can take a lead with their refined guitar skills, and clearly offer some of the best harmonies around the Gulf Coast, so come on out and get sticky!

Friday, April 12 - Tyler James Arnold comes on in for a show from 3-6pm.  Tyler brings the down home Louisiana sound to life with a well chosen set list, great leads over perfect sampling, a voice that commands attention, and tunes ranging from your favorite americana, and southern rock to contemporary gulf coast legends that will have you singing along.  Then, Bowery Station is pleased to welcome back the TurkeyBasters from 7-10pm!  We all need some basting once in a while, and no one is more up to the task than Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow, some of the area's most talented live performers!  This duo absolutely raises the rafters every time they step on stage with their energy and talent, sharing their enthusiasm with an eager audience.  Melissa gets the crowd singing along, dancing, and cheering to her commanding vocals and powerful guitar skills, as Tim's impressive time keeps the feet tapping and the hands clappin'!   Followers are developing into a cultesque group of devotees that just love to get basted....come join the cult!

Saturday, April 13 - Savanna Leigh Bassett is back in the house with one of her upbeat, energetic performances from 3-5:30pm.  Joining us from Jacksonville, Savanna is a powerful guitarist that can sing your favorite Country hits mixed in with her own well written originals.  Noted for her energy and vocals as well, Savanna is becoming a quick rising star in North Florida.  Then, rock the night away with the Patrick Road Band from 6:30-10pm.  This blues based rock band is led by a female vocalist that can raise the rafters and get the joint hoppin'.  Male harmony comes from the drummer, who leads on occasion.  PRB joins us from Georgia and they lit up Apalach about a year ago, but were unfortunately cancelled during Hurricane Michael... making them all the more excited about getting back in and burning down the house, to continue to build their reputation here in Apalachicola.  

Sunday, April 14 - Brody Buster joins us on the second part of his Florida Tour as he heads back north with a show from 5-8pm. Brody Buster is a blues rock musician from Lawrence, KS.  He's a former harmonica child prodigy and has been featured on countless TV shows, including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Dateline, Crook & Chase, and the Jon Stewart Show.  Even Baywatch Nights and Full House showcased Brody's talents.  Brody has shared the stage with Quincy Jones, Keb Mo, Chaka Kahn, Lee Oskar and was a regular performer at B.B. King's Blues Club.  B.B. was once quoted as saying, "Despite his age, Brody Buster is one of the greatest harmonica players of our time."  Brody has also won best harmonica player at the 2017 International Blues Festival and 2nd place Solo at the same fest. Brody also has the REX HUMPHRIES seal of approval and is a do not miss performer!  Just ask Rex.

Thanks again to everyone that continues to support our efforts to bring the best live music to Apalachicola, without your support it could not be possible.

Another wave of snowbirds began their migration north with the end of March, and we wish them well on their journeys and thank them for their support during the season.  We hope to see them all again next season as they come south to bask in the warmth of our piping hot live music...

That being said, this week is a fun one that wraps up with "The Battle in the Bowery," betwix two living legends, Bo Spring and John Sutton.

Here we go.....

Wednesday, April 3 -  Matt Gardi hosts as BS Open Mic rolls from 5-8ish.  Please note the 5pm start time, as last week we again had so many interested performers, therefore we will start a little earlier this week again, so if you want to show up and play after 5pm, our host is ready to accommodate you!  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this week we are raising funds for the Friends of the St. Vincent Island National Wildlife Refuge, in anticipation of our fundraiser scheduled on Sunday, April 28, a Jimmy Buffett Tribute featuring Sticky Too!

Thursday, April 4 - Singer/Songwriter George Maddox joins us for a show from 6-9pm.  George plays a great mix of originals and covers, finding a home between country, americana and even a little southern rock.  George loves to share his love of the Forgotten Coast within his songs and is another one of those artists that help create a music centric environment as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.

Friday, April 5 - Cat Braaten and Tom Mason join us for an afternoon show from 3-6pm. Cat, a proven Apalach favorite that can belt out the tunes with a mix of originals and covers, always gives a lights out performance, but once in a great while she brings along with her Nashville legend Tom Mason.  Tom joins her with intricate guitar riffs, fantastic harmonies, some amazing originals of his own, and on occasion.. even a trombone!!  Then, we have a DEBUT ALERT!  Southernaire, featuring Caitlin Rushing and Sean Holcomb are coming out for a show from 7-10pm.  Caitlin, an Orlando based singer songwriter is anything but a small town player. Her song “Hold On You” earned the 2nd place spot in the ISC (International Songwriting Competition). It is no surprise that her lyrics penetrate the heart and the soul of her listeners.  Combined with Sean Holcomb, who uses an acoustic-driven combination of folk, Americana, and southern soul to weave together the music he plays and writes, Southernaire is a do not miss act.  

Saturday, April 6 - Get ready for a great couple acts, and a great couple days.  First, Nashville based John Sutton joins us for an afternoon solo performance from 2-5pm.  Few can put on such an energetic solo show as our friend John Sutton.  Clearly an accomplished guitarist, John adds powerful vocals to his dynamic and well written originals.  His shows always captivate the audience, making for a great afternoon that any live music enthusiast will enjoy.  Then, the Bo Spring Band comes in for another face melting evening from 6:30 - 10pm.  Few can dominate the stage like Bo and the gang, as they take you on a tour of originals and covers from the Stones to Zeplin, sprinkled with fsome americana for good measure.  We say only a Few can put on such a show... but that brings us to what we have planned for Sunday.... a freakin' fabulous faceoff..

Sunday, April 7 - Slim Fatz opens the day with one of his signature performances from 3-5pm, offering growling delta blues in his own style.  Then the moment you have been waiting for... the fight of the century featuring some of the top heavyweight performers to have played Bowery Station...  Ladies and Gentlemen....   prepare yourself for.... The Battle in the Bowery.  John Sutton takes on Bo Spring in a song for song duel of biblical proportion from 5-8pm.  Either of these performers can capture a crowd and burn down any venue they play as soloist... both with incredible guitar skills, powerful vocals, and well written originals.... but on this day... these two go head to head in a fun but competitive rivalry of showmanship, and performance. 

Thanks again to all our musicians and live music enthusiasts that help make Bowery Station....your home for the best live music in Apalachicola!

Boy did we cook up some hot live music last week, highlighted by Bill Wharton, the Sauce Boss... blessed to have him grace our stage.

We have another great week lined up, including some of your favorites along with some national touring acts.... 

Wednesday, March 27 -  Matt Gardi hosts as BS Open Mic rolls from 5-8ish.  Please note the 5pm start time, as last week we again had so many interested performers that we ran Open Mic late to get them all on stage.  Fear not, we will start a little earlier this week again, so if you want to show up and play after 5pm, our host is ready to accommodate you!  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this week we are raising funds for the Friends of the St. Vincent Island National Wildlife Refuge, in anticipation of our fundraiser scheduled on Sunday, April 28, a Jimmy Buffett Tribute featuring Sticky Too!

Thursday, March 28 - Better than a Reeces Peanut Butter cup, we combine two great acts back to back as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.  We have chosen to do this in the form of Del Suggs and Reckless Saints. Del Suggs, who has appeared at every Florida Folk Fest since 1983 has chosen to offer his winter performances at Bowery Station, and the duo of Roy Schneider and Kim Mayfield of Reckless Saints always try to make Bowery Station a stop on their tours when in North Florida. Both of these acts have captured audiences with their performance styles as well as their songwriting. While clearly different they can find a similar home in the folk and Amerciana genres. Reckless Saints will start the evening from 5-7pm, followed by Del from 7:30-9:30pm. This will be one of those special evenings and do not miss performances at Bowery Station... oh, and admission is FREE, so get in early.

Friday, March 29 - Matt Law comes on out for a Friday afternoon from 4-6:30pm.  Matt can, and will play just about any genre but finds a home in old blues, americana and the 60s and 70s.  Notable for his impressive guitar and vocal range that covers the classics so well, we thought it would be fun to have a great like Matt Law open for National Touring act Brody Buster!  Brody with a similar style of one man band to Sauce Boss plays from 7-10pm.  BrodyBrody Buster is a blues rock musician from Lawrence, KS.  He's a former harmonica child prodigy and has been featured on countless TV shows, including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Dateline, Crook & Chase, and the Jon Stewart Show.  Even Baywatch Nights and Full House showcased Brody's talents.  Brody has shared the stage with Quincy Jones, Keb Mo, Chaka Kahn, Lee Oskar and was a regular performer at B.B. King's Blues Club.  B.B. was once quoted as saying, "Despite his age, Brody Buster is one of the greatest harmonica players of our time."  Brody has also won best harmonica player at the 2017 International Blues Festival and 2nd place Solo at the same fest.  Again, there is no charge for this event, so please come early and seats can only be held with a butt in them.  

Saturday, March 30 - Josh Watson comes on in for the afternoon from 3-5:30pm.  Josh is a masterful guitar player, with a unique voice and plays a variety of genres that can please any generation.  Josh creates an atmosphere that folks tune into, often singing along.  Then, the Adventures of Annabelle Lyn join us for an evening from 6:30-10pm.  This trio of incredibly talented ladies have opened for the likes of America and the Wood Brothers.  Few acts can offer such impeccable vocal harmonies, accompanied by stand up bass, fiddle, guitar, and mandolin.  Their set list consists of some of the most intriguing originals, and covers from folk, gospel and even classic rock done in their own style.  

Sunday, March 31 - So, just when you thought it was safe to try and take a nap... fuhgeddaboutit!  The Turkey Basters are coming into Apalachicola to light up your Sunday afternoon from 5-8pm.  This duo of Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow bring their high energy show that locks in the attention of the entire venue from start to finish.  Known as a one of the best female acoustic guitar players on the Gulf Coast, Melissa packs a punch with her dynamic and powerful vocals.  Add percussionist Dutrow to the mix.... and it is game on.  Sorry kids, as much as you wanted a day of rest... we just couldn't let it happen this week.  Catch up on your rest at work Monday.

There it is folks... another unbelievable week of top talent in the live music world... and we can't do it without your support...and for that we are always grateful.

See you at the show.

We are exceptionally excited this week, as it culminates with one of our favorite celebrations of the year... a fine Italian holiday.... St. Patrick's Day!!  Yes, yes, yes, I am well aware that some Irish blokes have claimed San Patricio as their own... but hey... if it's all about beer and music... who can complain?

Here's the weekly smorgasbord of live music goodness.

Tuesday, March 12 - Huh? TUESDAY?  What up, Bowery Station is usually closed on Tuesdays?  Well, and it is true this week as well, but....BUT... yours truly, Matt Gardi, has the distinct pleasure to open for Sam and Dave AT PADDY'S Raw Bar on SGI.  That's right, Sam and Dave are ready to put on their off off off really far off Broadway production of Nowhere to Nowhere featuring the Melody Lane Dance Troop at Paddy's starting at 7:30pm, but Matt Gardi will have the distinct pleasure and honor to open for them from 5:30-7:30pm when the production starts!  So come on out to Paddys this Tuesday for an event you will be sure to remember in soooo many ways!

Wednesday, March 13 -  Matt Gardi hosts as BS Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish.  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this week we are raising funds for the Franklin County Humane Society, helping our little furry friends out.  This of course is in anticipation of the SGI Brew Fest in April which is becoming a fantastic event that benefits the Humane Society as well.

Thursday, March 14 -  Rick Ott returns for an afternoon show from 3-5:30pm.  Rick loves to masterfully play all the old classics you know and love, and is a musician that loves to share his joy of performing with the crowd as few can play an electric as a soloist with such a great feel.

ITALIAN SAINT!

Friday, March 8 - Phillip Nelson comes in for an afternoon show from 3-6pm. Phillip is a powerful guitarist with a dynamic voice and a set list that has everyone tapping their toes.

Sunday, March 10 - Cat Braaten comes on in for a great Sunday afternoon and evening from 5-8pm!  Cat, being one of the Forgotten Coasts favorite female vocalists balances her shows between her well written and captivating originals and some of your favorite covers.  Her powerful vocals over the years are one of the reasons that Bowery Station has evolved in to the performer centric atmosphere that it is today.  Come on out for a perfect spring Sunday, and don't forget this Sunday at 2am spring those clocks ahead because you don't want to miss a moment of Cat Braaten!
