Arkansauce!! At 9 Pm bring your dancing shoes!!!

      

       Arkansauce is a genre-hopping, four piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, country, blues, and funk. With a loyal following growing every day in the Natural State and along their tour routes, the band is proud to be stepping into a hard-driving sound unique to the Arkansas quartet.

       The third album (If I Were You, released April 2017) of all original material finds the palate expanded with more complex melodies, intriguing rhythms, and hard-hitting hooks that leave the songs whirling around your head long after the listening experience.  

       The hard-working musicians are filling the calendar with upcoming appearances at premiere music festivals and venues in and around Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Mississippi, Colorado, New Mexico, and Missouri.  

       The band’s roots go back to 2011 when founding members Ethan Bush, Zac Archuleta, and Stephen Jolly began writing together after becoming acquainted through mutual connections in the close-knit Fayetteville music scene. After a couple of years building a repertoire of original music and releasing their first album (Hambone) as a trio, they were joined by Tom Andersen on the upright bass and Adams Collins on the five-string banjo. The road-tested chops Andersen and Collins brought to the table helped to cultivate the mature, well-rounded sound needed to accommodate their sophomore release “All Day Long.”

      An Arkansauce show is riddled with improvisational guitar, banjo, and mandolin leads, paired with powerful harmonies and heart-felt songwriting, all held together by deep foot-stompin’ bass grooves. There’s an undeniably intimate connection between the band and their fans that’s contagious and leaves everyone in front of, and on the stage wanting more. Arkansauce holds their head high, as they look forward to enjoying everything life and music has in store for them and their fans.

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!”

March, 13th Von Stomper

March 12, 2015

Inspired by the lonely, the downtrodden, and the insane– the voices of Von Stomper, a Colorado based five piece, reach into the expansive lexicon of American roots music and make it howl. Their high energy live show has left boots tattered and dance floors torn time and time again.

Since August of 2013 Von Stomper has played over one hundred shows in thirteen states and counting – sharing the stage with acts such as The Dirty River Boys, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Swear & Shake, Uncle Lucious, Wood & Wire, The Yawpers, Local H and many more. With their self-titled debut studio album-recorded at UI Soundstudios – they continue to pave their way through America’s countrysides and city skylines.

“With vintage sound and modern swagger, Von Stomper excellently couples old-time folk Americana with some rock attitude and almost vaudevillian flair. The self-titled debut shows a new band that is already chiseling its name into the American songbook with a rootsy, bluesy style and a little bit of circus freak panache.”

FIBArk 2014 live music June 11th – 14th

June 6, 2014

June 11th- 14th 2014!

Wednesday night at 9:30: Radio La Chusma is a unique latin band from El Paso that is famous for its cultural singularity and catchy rhythmical style of music.

Thursday night at 9:30: Better Than Bacon is a greasy Rock N Roll band out of Fort Collins

Friday night FIBArk after party with an encore performance by Radio La Chusma! This six piece band features four part harmonies and a high energy live show. Their new “Frontera Reggae” sound takes the reggae vibrations to a whole new level. Finding inspiration from pre-Columbian and African traditions, Radio La Chusma has been inspiring crowds for the past eight years. Radio La Chusma is, first and foremost, a reggae band, but the band also incorporates cumbia, Afro Cuban music, and world beat rhythms that are a combination of all of the above. In fact, the band is a veritable word beat encyclopedia of sounds.

Saturday night the FIBArk after party continues with SOAP, a fusion of highly danceable rock, intricate song craftsmanship and psychedelic funk. Set out to make every show inspiring. Imagine going to a double matinee showing of Led Zeppelin & P-Funk at Dream Theater and then heading to an Amsterdam discotheque to dance until the sun came up. That’s about as close as can be described without seeing Soap for yourself.

June 16th Adrian and the Sickness

May 31, 2012

 

Tickets are available at: http://eldobrewpub.frontgatetickets.com/choose.php?a=1&lid=68510&eid=77534Adrian and the Sickness is an undeniable front of infectious pop concoction wrapped around electric, bombastic rock and roll. They have been wowing live audiences with sweet melody and sheer sonic power since their debut in February 2004. Guitarist Adrian Conner also plays lead in Hell’s Belles, an AC/DC tribute band so fearsome that Angus Young is a devoted fan. She’s a deft soloist and a sure hand with a stinging riff, and she’s demonstrated her talents in front of demanding AC/DC fans all over the world. But she’s also a formidable pop-rock songwriter, penning honest, forthright songs spiked with catchy, irresistible hooks. Her original music has been called “exciting, rambunctious and kinda scary” in Guitar Player Magazine (2007).In 2008, Adrian’s endearing melodies as well as her scalding six-string caught the attention of fellow Austin resident, songwriter and bassist for the Go-Go’s, Kathy Valentine, who produced the band’s fourth CD, B.F.D. (2009). Kathy’s attention to sonic detail and eye for the architecture of pop composition resulted in an album that combines the rock fury and dazzling guitar of Angus’ best, with the approach-ability and energy of early Go-Go’s-style pop-punk. Adrian and the Sickness released B.F.D., under their own label, Phantom Records, which charted on C.M.J stations across the US and Canada, in early 2010.

Today, Adrian and the Sickness continue their rock-n-roll pursuit, touring the US and Europe, and constantly writing and recording new music. In July 2011 they launched their fifth independent release “Criminal/Dog Days” and their first on 7-inch vinyl. Adrian and the Sickness is an action-packed world-class rock experience and it’s coming straight at you.
