June 6/23 & 6/25 2017 Jeremy Steding & The Rebellion!! Sunday 6/25 @ 3 PM!! 

June 20, 2017

Jeremy Steding’s fifth studio album, Odessa, travels hard. Along the ride, love is won and lost, whiskey is spilled and life’s meaning is questioned. Immediately, your heart rate rises to meet the rhythm of the gritty title track, a driving song that paints an ominous picture of the west Texas namesake. 

 

A native of Florida, Jeremy Steding was raised on the railroad sounds of Johnny Cash, the rhythms of Buddy Holly and the timeless words of Dylan and Prine. While attending University of Florida, Steding was turned onto Texas/Red Dirt Music. Long a fan of Willie and Waylon, he was now digging into Cory Morrow and Robert Earl Keen. Texas called to him.

 

Steding spent a decade in Austin, becoming a staple in the Texas/Red Dirt scene and sharing the stage with artists such as The Turnpike Troubadours and Clint Black. 

 

In June ’16, Steding relocated to Nashville. There, he has joined forces with a new group of talented musicians to create a new album and hit the pavement. Steve Berkley (drums,) Kolby Rister (Bass,) Casey Driscoll (fiddle) and Dillon Horton (Steel) form The Rebellion.

 

“Feels So Good To Be Back Home” is the follow up to Top-20 Single, “Late Night Love Song.”

 

Odessa is Jeremy Steding’s best work yet. Becoming a husband and dad, along with nine years of late night truck stops, countless live shows and soul-searching have done him good. Expect 2017 to be a great year for Jeremy Steding and The Rebellion.

FIBArk after PARTY with The Fabulous Boogienauts!! Friday & Saturday 9 P.M.

June 13, 2017

If you don’t want to boogie, let loose and have an out-of-this-world experience, you might want to avoid Victoria Tavern this weekend because The Fabulous Boogienauts will be taking over. The 10-member intergalactic band will perform back-to-back sets Friday and Saturday starting at 9 p.m. both nights.

The Fabulous Boogienauts is an all-original power disco funk ensemble that hails from planet Boogus Prime, deep in the Alpha Booty System. They crashed their beloved starship, BoobyPrize, in Colorado many years ago and have never left. Before departing their planet, their government named their mission The Fabulous Boogienauts, as their goal was to “bring funk to this great galaxy.”

Band spokesperson Keith Kentucky said, “We seek out new worlds in need of life-affirming groove.”

A highlight of the band’s musical history is when their funky beats stopped an intergalactic war, Kentucky said. “It’s amazing that music can destroy conflict.”

While the amicable aliens have played many “wonderful places,” the band members agree they feel “most comfortable playing in front of the wonderful souls at the Victoria.”

Hopes for this weekend include seeing “many people on the dance floor shaking their asses off. We love the Vic and all the Earthlings that work and play there. It reminds us of our home planet of Boogus Prime.”

Kentucky said his bandmates’ least favorite part about performing is when they have to stop. “We love to keep the party alive!”

The Fabulous Boogienauts have a favorite audience, and they hope the crowds at the Vic will cooperate. “(We like) fun people shakin’ their funky butts off! Trippin’ the light fantastic! If you like to boogie and like to party, then you are our kind of people!”

J.J. Evanhoff

January 18, 2016

Evanoff is the musical experience created by Parker Oberholzer, Jake Hall, and JJ Evanoff from Boulder, Colorado. The high-energy trio blends together a tasteful mix of classic rock and contemporary dance music, to create a genre they call “Dream Rock”. Evanoff has been fine tuning their distinct rock influenced sound and soulfully incorporating it within the ever-growing EDM scene, in the hope to bring rock music back into the spotlight, as it should be…

Whilst the act originally started as JJ Evanoff’s solo project, it didn’t take long before it blossomed into a live ensemble incorporating Oberholzer on Bass, and Hall on drums, both of which JJ met in school at the University of Colorado Denver. JJ’s guitar melodies act as the vocalist for the group, and guide the listener on an emotional and spiritual journey, while Hall’s groovy rhythms and Oberholzer’s face melting slap bass skills keep the crowd moving, all night long.

In a musical world scene saturated by EDM and Jam-bands, Evanoff will give you a fresh perspective on what the musical world might be like if the greats such as Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix were still around.

Plan Be

https://soundcloud.com/adamkinney

Plan Be is an all original band haling from the hamlet community of Crestone, CO. They play a form of Gypsy Mountain Rock whose melodic ascensions and rhythmic thump alongside searing lyrics of the good life, the strife of life, and the fellowship with the earth will keep you going all night long. Some people have also called this music Trance Bluegrass.

Singer/songwriter and guitar player Adam Kinney comes originally from Texas where early musical influences of Nirvana and Tom Petty meshed with dreams of being a rock star. This has led to scores of songs that audiences can easily identify with and sing along, as they speak to the common struggles and joys of family, work, and striving to be a better person.

Arizona-born chopmaster Jacob Pesqueira plays the banjo like no other. Tuned GDAE and played with a guitar pick, the mesh of rhythm and melody find a perfect and infectious balance. Jacob was given a guitar by his father at age 10 and since has evolved intuitively with not only the guitar, but also mandolin, didgeridoo, and in the last few years, banjo. His influences include Django Reinhardt, Gypsy Kings, and Santana.

Plan Be’s kick drum, hi-hat, snare, and bass come from Nick Chambers. A native Coloradoan, he was influenced by an older brother to start playing the drum kit at age 10. He was playing in Denver bars at 16 and in college lived with jazz musicians whose influence of time, avant garde cadence, and funk have never left. Combining foot percussion with the electric bass is like a cerebrally-implanted metronome, allowing each to be simple yet powerful. He still plays and is influenced by traditional Irish music, be bop jazz, and funk.
