Bakelite 78

Genre: Swing , Blues , Jazz , Rock

Bakelite 78′s repertoire is an eclectic mix of swing, Dixieland, blues, proto-country, and cabaret, as well as a plethora of originals in hybrids of these styles.  Founding member Robert Rial arrived in Chicago in 2000, eager to engage in the music he loved most: dance orchestra music/swing, country-blues, dixieland, tin pan alley, rock and American folk. He played his guitar and tenor banjo and took solace in his 78 R.P.M. records (some discs were made from an early form of plastic similar to Bakelite). “Bakelite 78′s” preserved the music of the early 20th Century, and the band was born to keep classic crooner vocals & speak-easy jazz/lounge/cabaret alive.  The original lineup of Bakelite 78 performed throughout Chicago from 2003 to 2008. The group released their acclaimed debut “It’s A Sin” in 2006, and followed up in 2008 with “Delta Disc”, (produced in Mississippi by Jimbo Mathus, and partially funded by a City Of Chicago Department Of Cultural Affairs’ generous Community Arts Assistance Program Grant).

Albert Cummings

Genre: Blues Guitar , Folk , Pop , Singer-songwriter

  1. Sunday, July 19 7:30 PM (All ages)



Breaking every cliche associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes natural to Albert Cummings. The Massachusetts native learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. Before graduating he heard the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan, however, and was floored by the virtuosity. While in college he saw Vaughan perform and he returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve. Not until he was 27, an age when other musicians were either already established or had long ago put their dream aside for the realities of life, did Albert finally decide to go for it.

An intense period of wood shedding resulted Albert sharing a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section. So taken with Albert's fire and passion were bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton that they volunteered to play on and produce his debut recording. In 2003 the aptly-titled From the Heart (Under the Radar), with the awesome power of a Nor'easter and the soul of a natural born artist.

Tours and shows with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and others brought his music to an audience grateful for the opportunity to be rocked hard by a man possessed to play every song like his life depended on it.

Albert Cummings is a man of his times and the man for the times. He has built his own musical edifice that expresses his thoughts and dreams. It is a vision that alternately excites and soothes while also clearly providing a glimpse of his unlimited future. The best is yet to come.

Alpha Rev Unplugged w/ Jared & The Mill

Genre: Alternative Rock , Cabaret , Comedy , Pop , Singer-songwriter

  1. Tuesday, July 28 7:30 PM (All ages)

“I want the band to mark a moment in time, to celebrate the being of something new;

The light at the end of the tunnel, the first step toward revealing something that needs to be seen,” says singer-songwriter Casey McPherson of Alpha Rev. Following the Triple A Radio success of New Morning (2010), the band’s third album Bloom (March 19, 2013 on Kirtland Records) is a set of personally transformative and redemptive songs, born in the spirit of creative expansion, and a mandate to blossom and grow.

“To bloom implies something beautiful is going to happen, but it’s a process---just like our own journeys,” says McPherson.

“Casey and I met when we were really young, and have been playing music with each other off and on over the past 13 years,” explains guitarist Zak Loy. “That growth comes across in the music the group is creating now,” he says. Rooted in lyrical wisdom, the more recent addition of drummer Tabber Millard---trained by master percussionists---is credited for the band’s contemporary tribal rhythms. “Tabber means drummer boy in Arabic and his life revolves around this gift he has,” says McPherson. Newest Alpha Rev addition Jeff Bryant rounds out the band, playing pedal steel, piano, organ, and bass.

With a glistening rock sound that is at once fragile and tough, Bloom picks up threads from the past while it takes a big bite into the eternal here and now. Drawing from the wellspring of American history, the grandeur of its landscape, and life's sweet and tragic mysteries, McPherson leans into his personal challenges as well as the wages of the 21st Century and emerges with a triumphant statement on the ways in which music can serve as a constant source of strength and inspiration.

The shimmering, hymn-like “Sing Loud” - created with songwriter/producer Jamie Kenney (“He’s cut from the same stone I am,” says McPherson) - confronts a failing relationship, “But with the belief that you’re going to experience freedom again,” McPherson explains.

Love and death informs the heart-wrenching “Lexington,” based on actual historical love letters from Civil War soldiers to their wives and families. “The amount of pain they were in to be away from those they loved while their lives were at stake was incredible,” says McPherson.

“’Black Sky,’ is about dealing with losing everything you have from a fire. ‘Lonely Man,’ is about losing your family from working too much and ‘When You Gonna Run,’ is about losing the ability to look good in front of somebody,” he says.

“Alpha Rev is a collective of musicians,” explains McPherson, “Once you join, you’re never really gone.” On Bloom, Alex Dunlap holds down the bass, while Brian Batch (violin, viola) and Dave Wiley (cello) serve as the band’s string section. The players were joined in the studio by a longtime friend of McPherson's, Dwight Baker (Brandi Carlile, Bob Schneider); he oversaw the project in his Austin studio. Producer Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard) also worked with the band for two songs on Bloom. “Austin is a great city that takes care of musicians; it helps foster ideas and creativity,” says McPherson. Producer Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard) also worked with the band for two songs on Bloom.

Since his beginnings in Jackson, Texas, where he was classically trained on piano, McPherson has traveled the distance: Working in a recording studio by age 16, at 17 he was touring overseas as a keyboard player; at 19 he formed Endochine, its name translating from its Latin and Greek roots as “to explode from within.” Turning once again to ancient alphabets for his band’s handle, “Alpha Rev is a combination of the Greek word for the beginning, and the incredible Latin prefix rev, as in revolve, revolt, reveal,” he says. The band’s Hollywood Records debut, New Morning (produced by David Kahne) rose to #3 on the Triple A chart, reaching an audience 40 million listeners-strong. The title song and “Phoenix Burn” also entered the charts.

Yet while scaling his own dreams, McPherson lost both his father and brother to suicide. Forming in 2005, Alpha Rev, became a vehicle to grapple with the outpouring of grief that results from losses of that magnitude. Today, McPherson helps others who've lost family to depression and suicide as a volunteer spokesperson for the National Institute of Mental Health organization, Mental Health America of Texas [http://mhatexas.org/].

“Music changes people,” says McPherson. “We’re trying to find happiness in music as opposed to self-destruction,” he says. “It’s my desire, and has always been to be a part of our group, that we make each other better musicians, we make each other better men, we challenge each other, we fight and we forgive. Everybody in the band has really adopted that ideal,” says McPherson. “Alpha Rev is more than a band name---it’s a motto.”

An Acoustic Evening With Parachute

Genre: Acoustic Rock , Pop , Pop-Rock

  1. Monday, July 20 8:00 PM (All ages)

Parachute took root in the college town of Charlottesville, Virginia, where the group honed its mix of pop/rock, funk, and contemporary blue-eyed soul under the original name Sparky's Flaw. Formed by high school students Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), Christopher "Kit" French (saxophone, keyboards), Alex Hargrave (bass), and Nate McFarland (guitar), Sparky's Flaw generated a healthy buzz around town and eventually became popular at the nearby University of Virginia, where they opened for Robert Randolph. After gaining more popularity with an independently released EP, 2005's One Small Step, the guys partnered with Red Light Management and later signed with Smash Records, an imprint of the recently revived Mercury Records.

Before entering their final year at the University of Virginia, Sparky's Flaw released a self-titled EP in August 2007 and began laying the groundwork for a full-length album. Several months later, the band adopted a new name -- Parachute -- and contributed a song to the national TV campaign for Nivea. Losing Sleep appeared in May 2009, marking Parachute's major-label debut and peaking at number 40 on the Billboard charts. The band opened for Kelly Clarkson that fall and appeared on the Internet broadcast Live at Daryl's House with Daryl Hall. More touring took place the following year, including additional dates with Clarkson and a headlining run with British songwriter Joe Brooks. Parachute began including newer songs in their set lists and eventually returned to the studio to record their sophomore effort, 2011's The Way It Was. Overnight, the band's third long-player, arrived in 2013. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

An Evening with Madeleine Peyroux

Genre: Guitarist , Jazz , Pop , Singer-songwriter

  1. Thursday, September 24 8:00 PM (All ages)
  2. Friday, September 25 8:00 PM (All ages)

‘The only thing that matters is the song’ says singer songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. A conviction that along with a ‘one of a kind ’ voice has carried the award winning artist from busking on the streets of Paris, all the way to stardom.

Sixteen years after her Dreamland debut, it is not hard to see why Peyroux’s genre defying blend of jazz and pop continues to enthrall the music world.

Through six universally praised albums ‘Jazz’s brightest star’ has gained a reputation for an impeccable choice of material, creating a genuine buzz of anticipation amongst fans and the industry at large.

Lending her seductively expressive voice to classic standards as well as thoroughly modern tunes, Peyroux has made an undiminishing mark as an uncanny and insightful ‘interpreter’.

From Holiday to Dylan, Bessie Smith to Leonard Cohen, Peyroux sheds a striking new light onto familiar musical gems while making each phrase and croon her very own, some say ‘creating new classics along the way’.

The free spirited singer, songwriter and guitarist began her musical adventure as a teenager in Paris, when ‘drawn to the music of the streets’, the 15 year old left high school and joined a touring blues and jazz band. ‘Someone gave me early Columbia recordings with Billie Holiday and instructed me to learn the songs'.

Years later, her undeniable talent was spotted at a New York club by Atlantic Records’ Yves Beauvais who signed her to the label and co-produced her 1996 debut album Dreamland. Peyroux’s dreamily husky voice enchanted punters and critics alike but it was the 2004 Careless Love that proved to be a milestone release for the artist, bringing mainstream recognition and marking the start of a prolific collaboration with producer Larry Klein.

The charmingly humble artist who ‘didn’t have any expectation of becoming someone that could make a dent in the outside world.’ has done just that. ‘There is no telling what the future will bring’ but it is clear to see that Madeleine Peyroux’s musical journey is only just beginning.

Asleep at the Wheel

Genre: Swing , Comedy , Pop-Rock , R&B , Soul

  1. Tuesday, August 25 7:30 PM (All ages)

Protean western swing-styled American unit who have retained a loyal US fanbase since the early 1970s, earning six Grammy Awards, keeping a buzz on a genre that might be described as "fringe," all while maintaining a musical integrity that's never wavered.

Since the early '70s, Asleep at the Wheel have been the most important force in keeping the sound of Western swing alive. In reviving the freewheeling, eclectic sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, the Wheel have earned enthusiastic critical praise throughout their lengthy career; they have not only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music, but have also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form. Typically featuring eight to 11 musicians, the group has gone through myriad personnel changes (at last count, over 80 members had passed through their ranks), but 6'7" frontman Ray Benson has held it together for four decades, keeping Asleep at the Wheel a viable recording and touring concern and maintaining their devotion to classic-style Western swing.

Bobby Rush

Genre: Blues

  1. Wednesday, July 15 7:30 PM (All ages)

Mississippi roots artist Bobby Rush’s Down in Louisiana(Deep Rush/ Thirty Tigers) has been nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award for Best Blues Album. Produced by Paul Brown at his Ocean Soul Studios in Nashville, the disc revels in the grit, grind and soul that’s been the blues innovator’s trademark since the 1960s, when Rush stood shoulder to shoulder on the stages of Chicago with Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter and other giants.

“I’m so grateful and honored to receive this nomination at my age,” says Rush, who is 79 years old. “It means the world to me, because it shows that after all these years in this business, I’m still making music that my peers and listeners find exciting and worthy of this acknowledgement.”

“Rush still, indeed, has an energy level that fits his name. He’s a prolific songwriter and one of the most vital live performers in the blues, able to execute daredevil splits on stage with the finesse of a young James Brown while singing and playing harmonica and guitar. Those talents have earned him multiple Blues Music Awards including Soul Blues Album of the Year, Acoustic Album of the Year, and, almost perennially, Soul Blues Male Artist of the Year.

Rush began absorbing the blues from his birth in Homer, Louisiana, on November 10, 1935. He learned guitar and harmonica and started playing juke joints in his teens, wearing a fake mustache so owners would think him old enough to perform in their clubs. In 1953 his family relocated to Chicago, where his musical education shifted to hyperspeed under the spell of Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Elmore James and other blues legends.

In the ’60s Rush became a bandleader in order to realize the funky soul-blues sound that he was developing. After 1971’s percolating “Chicken Heads” became his first R&B Top 40 hit, he relocated to Mississippi to be closer to his fan base in the South. His performances grew from small juke joints to nightclubs, civic auditoriums and, by the mid-’80s, Las Vegas casinos and the world’s most prominent blues festivals. Rush’s ascent was depicted in The Road to Memphis, a film co-starring B.B. King that was part of the 2003 PBS series Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues. Rush has released nearly 30 album since the 1970s. Down in Louisiana is his first on the Nashville-based Thirty Tigers imprint.
