Mac McAnally
Once in a Lifetime

For his new album, Once in a Lifetime, Mac McAnally is indeed doing something he’s never done before. To reflect the intimacy of his concerts, he arranged most of the material around guitar and percussion – yet he acknowledges that several of its tracks outgrew that simple set-up. And while many of the songs are new, he chose to include a few originals dating back to the early 2000s that seemed like a good fit.

So, with 12 songs pulled from different decades and musical directions, what ultimately ties all these tracks together? Simply put, it is McAnally’s ability to see the silver lining, a perspective he’s carried on his journey from being a shy, small-town kid from Mississippi, to working as a teenage studio musician in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, to becoming one of Nashville’s most respected (and self-effacing) singer-songwriters. Once in a Lifetime captures every aspect of his musical vision.

“I generally write whatever comes to me,” he says. “I’m not somebody who sits down and says, ‘I need to write a hit song,’ or this or that kind of song. I just follow whatever floats through my head.”

While writing “Alive and in Between,” McAnally drew upon childhood memories of Belmont, Mississippi, where his father was a school administrator and his mother played piano in the Baptist church. The song emerged from an art project, where novels were given to songwriters and visual artists, who would then create a piece based on their response to the book. In McAnally’s case, Harrison Scott Key’s memoir, The World’s Largest Man, sparked vivid snapshots from his own youth. McAnally translated those images into verses, then added a cool guitar riff he’s been using for years while tuning or changing strings.

“The author came from the same part of the country as me and it woke up a bunch of stuff about my childhood – what it was like hanging with my dad, going to the drugstore, talking about football, politics, and religion,” he says. “That opened up that part of my brain that I haven’t been down into for a while.”

One of the most uplifting songs on Once in a Lifetime is “Almost All Good,” where he’s aware of challenging times but doesn’t let them cloud his vision. Propelled by Eric Darken’s percussion, McAnally accompanies himself on guitar – with the lively rhythms adding a joyful spirit to the track. And this is not mere strumming, as McAnally has won a record-setting 10 trophies as Musician of the Year from the Country Music Association.

“All the way back to the beginning, my songwriting has been built around my guitar-playing because I’m not a very confident singer,” he says. “I was always trying to make a guitar part sound like a whole arrangement. There’s usually a bass part as a counterpoint in the main guitar part – but I’m not a fancy guitar player. I don’t take a lot of solos. Part of what’s allowed me to work so long in the business is that of all the bands I was in, I’ve never really wanted a solo. I would sit and play rhythm forever.”

McAnally notes that he typically sees three kinds of people at his shows: Those who have followed his career since his 1977 debut album; those who recognize him as the guitarist in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band; and those who remember his notable credits in country music. The latter category is particularly impressive, with songs cut by Alabama (“Old Flame”), Kenny Chesney (“Back Where I Come From”), Sawyer Brown (“All These Years”), Shenandoah (“Two Dozen Roses”) and many others.

Undoubtedly, Once in a Lifetime will satisfy all of those fans. “First Sign of Trouble” and “That’s Why They Call It Falling” are as quirky and quick-witted as the ‘70s output that made fans of Jimmy Buffett, Randy Newman, and John Prine (all of whom became friends and mentors). “Just Like It Matters” has that lonesome, real-life storytelling of classic country, while “Just Right” keeps the island vibe alive. In fact, it was written and recorded in Key West while Buffett was making his record; the Coral Reefer Band joined in the session, too.

“I’m interested in all kinds of music,” he says. “There’s obviously some Buffett influence on a few of the things and I’ve been playing country music and gospel music all my life, so there’s that influence, too.”

As for the title track, its cheerful message and buoyant melody wouldn’t be out of place on today’s country radio. McAnally and Nashville singer-songwriter Drake White composed it shortly after bumping into each other at a local breakfast spot. They casually chatted about getting together to write. Asked if he was enjoying himself these days, McAnally replied, “Yeah, every day. Every day is once in a lifetime.” White immediately replied, “We need to get together to write THAT!” White lends his vocal to the inspiring track, too.

Turning conversations into song is one of McAnally’s greatest gifts, one that led to his induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007. Two of the songs from Once in a Lifetime come from that era. He co-wrote “Good Guys Win” for the 2006 film, Hoot, and felt like its optimistic tone needed to be heard in this divided time. In addition, the bluegrass-flavored “Brand New Broken Heart” comes from a 2007 demo session of a tune he recorded with his fellow studio musicians, but never got around to pitching.

However, a couple of tracks come from an even earlier time. Co-written and recorded by Jimmy Buffett in 1989, “Changing Channels” is one of the album’s most poetic moments – and a cut that McAnally’s fans have been requesting for decades. Meanwhile, he covers “Norwegian Wood” with just percussion, vocals and octave mandolin, in a sincere homage to the Beatles. “It’s just me celebrating how great they are,” he says.

The thoughtful lyrics of “The Better Part of Living” – and Once in a Lifetime as a whole – can perhaps be traced back to a phrase McAnally remembers from his childhood, when his mother would tell him to “make some use of yourself” on his way out the door. McAnally still adheres to that philosophy today. Asked about the experience of listening to these assorted songs that have now become an album, he modestly replies, “I see a guy trying to be a good representation of a human being. I hope there’s something in what I do that in some way can make someone else’s life a little bit better, too. That’s really what I’m shooting for.”

I’m busting out of the shoot thinking about this adventure. COME JOIN US, WON’T YOU?

See you there,
Robert Earl Keen

ABOUT Robert Earl Keen

"The road goes on forever …"

It's not always easy to sum up a career — let alone a life's ambition — so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen's calling-card anthem do just that.

You can complete the lyric with the next five words — the ones routinely shouted back at Keen by thousands of fans a night "and the party never ends!" — just to punctuate the point with a flourish, but it's the part about the journey that gets right to the heart of Keen's legacy. From the get-go, Keen wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible.

"I always wanted to play music, and I always knew that you had to get some recognition in order to continue to play music," Keen says. "But I never thought in terms of getting to be a big star. I thought in terms of having a really, really good career writing good songs, and getting onstage to share a really good time."

Now with 21 records to his name, a band of stellar musicians, and thousands of shows under his belt, there is no end in sight to the road ahead. In July of 2021, POLLSTAR ranked Keen on its Top 20 Global Concert Tours, proof that he has blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that's earned him living-legend and pioneer status in the Americana music world.

"Americana" style was officially recognized by the music industry in 1998. Robert Earl Keen was the genre's first artist to be featured on the Americana Music Chart and on the debut cover of the radio trade magazine The Gavin Report featuring Americana. Keen continues to blaze a trail for other artists with Producer, Clara Rose, and their Americana Podcast. In 2019 Americana Podcast launched with the inaugural episode featuring Jamestown Revival and Lucero. The Americana Podcast has furthered the interest in artists Billy Strings, Lori McKenna, Drew Holcomb and I'm With Her.

A Houston native, REK has for three decades been regarded as one of the Lone Star State's finest true singer-songwriters. He enjoyed a homecoming at the 2019 Houston Rodeo when he performed with college friend, Lyle Lovett, ahead of George Strait to the record-breaking audience of over 80,000 attendees.

Keen was weaned on classic rock and Willie Nelson records. By the time he entered Texas A&M University, he was teaching himself guitar playing Bluegrass and setting his poetic musings to song. These early days are captured in spirit on the Keen/Lyle Lovett co-write, "The Front Porch Song," which both artists recorded on their respective debut albums, and in Happy Prisoner, REK's bluegrass recording.

Robert Earl Keen's journey brought him back to the town of College Station in 2018 to accept the Texas A&M Distinguished Alumni Award. An award given to 281 of Texas A&M's 488,500 former students since 1962. This honor recognizes those Aggies who have achieved excellence in their chosen professions and made meaningful contributions to Texas A&M University and their local communities.

From the front porch days Keen took the road less travelled, self-financing, and producing No Kinda Dancer. Keen started to make a name for himself winning the Kerrville Folk Festival's prestigious New Folk Songwriting Competition. Kerrville is the home of The Hill Country Youth Orchestras, a free orchestra for students which Keen has supported with a benefit concert annually. His efforts have raised more than $1,000,000 in support of music education.

After his debut's release, he eventually moved to Nashville. While in Nashville Keen worked at the well-known Hatch Show Print as a pressman. After Keen's stint in Nashville, he returned to Texas with a publishing deal, a new label, and a national booking agent. He proceeded to release The Live Album and West Textures, the album that marked the debut of "The Road Goes on Forever" and kicked his career into high gear.

Keen had no idea that his song about a couple of ill-fated lovers running afoul of the law would have the legs it has, but he credits DJ Steve Kaufman of San Antonio radio station KRIO for helping to start the fire. "Steve talked the station into doing sort of a free-form programming format during "drive time." It was anything he liked, which turned out to be great music and a last glimpse at the influence of the DJ on radio," he says.

"With an organic boost from Kaufman, I went from playing the front room at Gruene Hall for a max of 150 people to playing a show in San Antonio for 1,500 people. That was a moment that kept me going; because before that, I'd been working for 10 years and had a lot of rejection but very little success."

When Keen's third studio album, West Textures, was released, fellow Texas icon Joe Ely recorded both "The Road Goes on Forever" and "Whenever Kindness Fails" on Ely's album, Love and Danger, the secret was out on Keen's credentials as a songwriter's songwriter Robert Earl Keen's contribution to his craft gained him induction into the Texas Heritage Songwriters' Hall of Fame and The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.

About Steve Earle:
Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. A protege of legendary songwriters
Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being
recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others.
1986 saw the release of his record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and is now
regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. Subsequent releases like The Revolution Starts...Now (2004),
Washington Square Serenade (2007), and TOWNES (2009) received consecutive GRAMMY® Awards. Restlessly
creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published both a novel and collection of short stories; produced albums
for other artists such as Joan Baez and Lucinda Williams, and acted in films, television (including David Simon’s
acclaimed The Wire), and on the stage. In 2009, Earle appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which he also
wrote a score that The New York Times described as “exquisitely subliminal.” Earle wrote music for and appeared in
Coal Country, a riveting Public Theater play that dives into the most-deadly mining disaster in U.S. history, for
which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award. Mr. Earle was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriters
Hall of Fame.

About the Show and the Artist:

Larry Sigmon was born in Callaway, Virginia. His father, Lewis Eldridge Sigmon, was a
locally beloved banjo and fiddle player. Larry taught himself harmonica as a child, and
then moved to guitar, learning to play by backing up his father. When he took up the
banjo at fifteen, it became his main instrument, and he developed a signature hard-
driving, rhythmic style. Larry’s first band was the Sugar Hill Ramblers, a six-piece group
that performed old time tunes and old country numbers for six years. He went on to play
stints with Carl Scott and Richard Bowman until the late 1980s, when he met bassist
Barbara Poole at a local fiddlers’ convention.

Larry and Barbara began performing together, winning countless ribbons in banjo, bass,
and folk song competitions and playing at festivals, dances, and other concert venues.
Their sound was so distinctive with just the banjo, bass, and Larry’s distinct singing,
they became known as the “Unique Sound,” and gained a dedicated local following,
particularly among flatfoot dancers. Larry and Barbara drew upon a repertoire of old
time and bluegrass songs from Charlie Poole to Jimmy Martin and Bill Monroe, making
songs their own through Larry’s strong vocals and Barbara’s double-slap bass.
Throughout their eighteen-year career, the duo performed at the Carter Family Fold, the
Grand Ole Opry, and mountain music festivals throughout the South, becoming one of
the most popular bands in the Blue Ridge Mountains until Barbara passed away in 2008
after a long struggle with cancer.

Larry had quit performing until old-time musician and advocate Martha Spencer arrived
to interview him for her online documentary project, Mountain Music Magazine. During
their interview, Martha encouraged Larry to play some tunes and the “Unique Sound”
was reborn. Larry Sigmon now performs with The Virginia Girls featuring Heather Krantz
on guitar and vocals, Sophie Moeckel on mandolin, fiddle and vocals and Susan
Blankenship on bass.

About the Show and the Artist:

Christopher Cross burst onto the music scene with his 1980 self-titled debut album, winning five Grammy Awards, including—for the first time in Grammy history—the “Big Four” most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also “Sailing”), and Best New Artist.


In a career spanning more than four decades, Cross has sold over 10 million albums. His music has garnered five Grammys, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, an Emmy nomination and five Top 10 singles. 


Within a year of the first album’s release, Cross joined music royalty Burt Bacharach to write “Arthur’s Theme,” for the movie Arthur, which won an Academy Award for Best Song.  With his 1983 release, Another Page, Cross was again in the Top 10 with the singles “All Right” and “Think of Laura.” His song, “Swept Away,” composed for the hit television series, Growing Pains, was nominated for an Emmy. 


Cross started his own label and, since 2007, has released 8 albums of new material, including A Christopher Cross Christmas and The Café Carlyle Sessions, jazz treatments of hits and favorites born out of a residency at the famous Hotel Carlyle in New York City.  Take Me as I Am, released in 2018, features richly-crafted melodies and elegant guitar work.  The latest project for Christopher Cross Records is aptly titled The Complete Works. Released in 2020, it celebrates his 40th anniversary as a recording artist and is a collection of all 12 previously-released CDs, one CD of singles and bonus tracks, and a pink vinyl containing one track from each album chosen by Christopher.  


Even though the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the 40th Anniversary tour, starting in 2021, he is once again performing the carefully-crafted songs and music his fans enjoy, starting with “Sailing” and “Ride Like the Wind” from his Grammy-winning debut album and continuing through the decades of his ever-changing but always excellent material.  More 40th Anniversary concert dates will be announced soon.  Dates can be found on the tour section of his website, www.christophercross.com.  

All in all, it’s been quite a ride, one that has taken Cross from his early days in Texas where he once served as a drum tech for Ginger Baker, bought gear from Jimmy Page, and played lead guitar for Deep Purple on a night when Ritchie Blackmore fell ill, to this place as a respected singer-songwriter-guitar player who continues to share his original music with the world.

The Oak Ridge Boys Celebrate 50th Anniversary Milestone With Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden, & Richard Sterban

“Rooted in gospel…Positive in perspective…Bringing joy…Bringing excitement…And, whether singing songs of faith, love songs, or the national anthem at hundreds of sporting events or the giddy-ups that precede the oom papas and the mow-mows….Bringing harmony…To a world that’s rife with dissonance” – Jody Williams at Induction of The Oak Ridge Boys into the Country Music Hall of Fame, October 25, 2015 NASHVILLE, Tenn. – GRAMMY® Award-winning and Country Music Hall of Fame members, The Oak Ridge Boys are officially celebrating their 50th Anniversary this October. With this celebration, The Oak Ridge Boys are announcing their American Made: Farewell Tour! The group, Duane Allen(1966), Joe Bonsall (1973), William Lee Golden (1965), and Richard Sterban (1972) are excited to celebrate both milestones with fans with the announcement of this tour.

“We are doing a farewell tour because we owe it to our fans to say goodbye,” shares William Lee Golden. “They have always been there for us through the good times and the bad. I will always be thankful to every person who came out to a show, bought a t-shirt, played our music, and overall, loved us enough to spend their hard-earned money whenever they could. This tour is for you!”

“I want to thank God for 50 years of singing with three of my best friends and for the fans who have been there for us,” shares Richard Sterban. “This is a celebration and we hope to see you there.”

Designated as America’s national anthem singers by the MENC (National Association for Music Educators), The Oak Ridge Boys released their #1 hit single, “American Made” in February 1983. Their love for God and country remains true to this day, and with this being the 40th Anniversary of the single, it seemed fitting to incorporate “American Made” into their farewell.

The Oak Ridge Boys have received four Academy of Country Music, two American Music, five Billboard, four Country Music Association, five Grammy, and twelve Gospel Music Association Dove awards, just to name a few. They are members of the Grand Ole Opry, the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and the Country Music Hall of Fame. They have achieved seventeen #1 hits including “Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Trying To Love Two Women,” “(I’m Settin’) Fancy Free,” “American Made,” and the unforgettable “Elvira.” With an astounding thirty-seven Top 20 country hits, with twelve gold, three platinum, and one double-platinum album, The Oak Ridge Boys have made their mark in every facet of the gospel, pop, and country music industry.

“For all of my career I have always been a planner, sometimes planning 2 or 3 years in advance, what we will do, where we will go, and when we record,” expresses Duane Allen. “As we celebrate 50 years of being together, just as you see us, we will, also, begin our American Made: Farewell Tour. I don’t know how long the tour will last, but we hope to return to as many parts of the country as we can. Thank you so much for these 50 years. For me, it’s 57 1/2 years. I have given you the best part of my life and you have rewarded me with a wonderful career. Thank you, our dear fans. Thanks to God for His divine guidance. Thank you to our wonderful organization. Thank you to all the supporting companies who represent us. And thank you to our families.”

In the early seventies, The Oak Ridge Boys continued to expand their cutting-edge style. After the addition of Richard Sterban in 1972 and Joe Bonsall in 1973, the Oaks were forever changed with a new direction, a new sound, and a new path. Their career stands alone with its legacy, its style, and its continued contributions to gospel and country music.

“I was 25 years old in 1973 when I joined The Oak Ridge Boys,” shares Joe Bonsall. “I am 75 years old in 2023 and I am STILL an Oak Ridge Boy. It has been and still IS an amazing ride.”

“For all of my career I have always been a planner, sometimes planning 2 or 3 years in advance, what we will do, where we will go, and when we record,” expresses Duane Allen. “As we celebrate 50 years of being together, just as you see us, we will, also, begin our American Made: Farewell Tour. I don’t know how long the tour will last, but we hope to return to as many parts of the country as we can. Thank you so much for these 50 years. For me, it’s 57 1/2 years. I have given you the best part of my life and you have rewarded me with a wonderful career. Thank you, our dear fans. Thanks to God for His divine guidance. Thank you to our wonderful organization. Thank you to all the supporting companies who represent us. And thank you to our families.”

In the early seventies, The Oak Ridge Boys continued to expand their cutting-edge style. After the addition of Richard Sterban in 1972 and Joe Bonsall in 1973, the Oaks were forever changed with a new direction, a new sound, and a new path. Their career stands alone with its legacy, its style, and its continued contributions to gospel and country music.

“I was 25 years old in 1973 when I joined The Oak Ridge Boys,” shares Joe Bonsall. “I am 75 years old in 2023 and I am STILL an Oak Ridge Boy. It has been and still IS an amazing ride.”

Jackyl

Jesse James Dupree - Vocals & Guitar

Jeff Worley - Guitar

Chris Worley - Percussion

Roman Glick – Bass

 

On August 11, 1992, Jackyl released their debut album on Geffen Records. It was the middle of Grunge, but Jackyl’s loud, proud and unapologetic rock songs, produced by Brendan O’Brien (Stone Temple Pilots, AC/DC), earned the LP double-platinum status. (And helped land the band a scene-stealing spot on Woodstock ’94.) Videos for the singles "The Lumberjack" (with Jesse James Dupree performing his iconic chainsaw solo), "I Stand Alone,” "Down On Me," "Dirty Little Mind," "When Will It Rain" and "Back Off Brother" earned rave reviews and rabid fans for the band’s no-holds-barred energy and lyrics.  

On August 11, 2022—30 years to the day of Jackyl’s debut—the lineup plays Sturgis, South Dakota’s Full Throttle Saloon, in a raucous celebration of the lineup’s 30th anniversary that also marks the debut of the quartet’s brand-new album, Jackyl 30 Coming In Hot and first single, “Get All Up In It.”  

“Jeff, Chris and Roman coming down on the ‘one’ together is still a force of nature,” says Dupree. “Thirty years together and I feel we’ve found an honest place about our new music, our fans and us as a band, on and offstage.”

Jackyl 30 Coming In Hot, which also includes the new tunes “Bad Decision” and “Another Round (Coming in Hot)” is only the latest highpoint of the Southern-bred band’s career. From the get-go, Jackyl were unafraid to stand up for free speech; their “I Stand Alone” video featured the band performing in front of a K-Mart as a protest for the store refusing to sell their album.  Other bold moves? Dupree entered a Longhorn Steakhouse with a chainsaw to “surprise” a group of influential radio programmers. That generated a class-action lawsuit that reportedly cost the band more than $1 million.

But the ever-growing legion of fans loved Jackyl’s songs and antics, helping 1994’s Push Comes to Shove album go platinum, thanks in part to the singles "Push Comes to Shove" and "Headed for Destruction.” 1993 saw “Mental *@%.!” featured on The Beavis & Butt-head Experience, a compilation album of songs tied in with MTV’s hit cartoon series; it was eventually certified triple platinum.

Hitting the road non-stop, Jackyl’s tour mates in those early days included Aerosmith, KISS, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. One of the biggest audiences? Jackyl’s performance at Woodstock 94. The appearance made national news and featured on late night shows, including Late Night with David Letterman. The double-album Woodstock 94 went platinum and included “Headed For Destruction” (a track from Push Comes To Shove).

Another groundbreaking musical moment came in 1996. Jackyl followed A&R legend John Kalodner (who had signed them to Geffen) to Sony Music’s Epic Records. The resultant record, 1997’s Cut the Crap was produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) and mixed by Kevin Shirley (silverchair, Aerosmith). The rock radio hit “Locked and Loaded” included guest vocals by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson. It was the first time Johnson had recorded with any artist but AC/DC since joining the band 17 years earlier.

A collection of B-sides titled Stayin’ Alive appeared on Shimmering Tone Records in 1998, but the biggest highlight of the year was Geffen’s release of the best-of collection Choice Cuts and the related promotional events Jackyl did to promote it. Always reaching higher, in 1998 Jackyl set not one but two Guinness World Records by playing 100 shows in 50 days…. and 21 shows in 24 hours. The daytime sets were 45 minutes long; the evening gigs were between 90 and 120 minutes of rock mayhem.

The band’s 2002 Relentless LP contained the second collaboration with Brian Johnson, the raucous rocker “Kill the Sunshine.” The following year, Universal Music/Geffen Records issued a Jackyl volume as part of its acclaimed “20th Century Masters – The Millennium Collection” best-of series. In 2004, the long-awaited Live at the Full Throttle Saloon CD and DVD was released by Sanctuary Records. It was recorded and filmed in the summer of 2003 in Sturgis, South Dakota, as part of the legendary annual biker rally.

It’s a festival close to the band’s heart, and from 2009 - 2015 Dupree became one of the lead characters of the hit reality TV show Full Throttle Saloon. Of course, that didn’t stop Jackyl from touring and recording, and in 2010 the band released When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide, which featured DMC from Run-D.M.C.

It’s been three decades since Jackyl shot out of Georgia spewing equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock. They’ve never stopped touring or recording, and with 9.2 million views (and growing) of  “Lumberjack Song” on YouTube, the quartet are earning rabid new fans daily. The August 2022 release of Jackyl 30 Coming In Hot cements and furthers Jackyl’s no-holds-barred legacy. Or as Dupree, with his unquenchable energy, exclaims, “Thirty years on and we’re still celebrating the fundamentals of rock ‘n’ roll, so Get All Up In It!”

American Aquarium – The Fear of Standing Still
For nearly two decades, American Aquarium have pushed toward that rare form of rock-and-roll
that’s revelatory in every sense. “For us the sweet spot is when you’ve got a rock band that makes
you scream along to every word, and it’s not until you’re coming down at three a.m. that you realize
those words are saying something real about your life,” says frontman BJ Barham. “That’s what
made us fall in love with music in the first place, and that’s the goal in everything we do.” On their
new album The Fear of Standing Still, the North Carolina-bred band embody that dynamic with more
intensity than ever before, endlessly matching their gritty breed of country-rock with Barham’s
bravest and most incisive songwriting to date. As he reflects on matters both personal and
sociocultural—e.g., the complexity of Southern identity, the intersection of generational trauma and
the dismantling of reproductive rights—American Aquarium instill every moment of The Fear of
Standing Still with equal parts unbridled spirit and illuminating empathy.
Recorded live at the legendary Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, The Fear of Standing Still marks
American Aquarium’s second outing with producer Shooter Jennings—a three-time Grammy
winner who also helmed production on 2020’s critically lauded Lamentations, as well as albums from
the likes of Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker. In a departure from the stripped-down subtlety of
2022’s Chicamacomico (a largely acoustic rumination on grief), the band’s tenth studio LP piles on
plenty of explosive riffs and hard-charging rhythms, bringing a visceral energy to the most nuanced
and poetic of lyrics. “In our live show the band’s like a freight train that never lets up, and for this
record I really wanted to showcase how big and anthemic we can be,” notes Barham, whose
bandmates include guitarist Shane Boeker, pedal-steel guitarist Neil Jones, keyboardist Rhett
Huffman, drummer Ryan Van Fleet, and bassist Alden Hedges.
Mixed by four-time Grammy winner Trina Shoemaker (Queens of the Stone Age, Emmylou Harris),
The Fear of Standing Still shares its title with one of the first songs Barham wrote for the album—a
soul-baring look at how raising a family has radically altered his priorities and perspective. In the
process of creating what he refers to as “a record about growing up and growing older,” Barham
also found his songwriting closely informed by his ten years of sobriety, as well as his ever-
deepening connection with American Aquarium’s community of fans. “Whenever someone tells me
that one of our songs helped them in some way, it encourages me to be more and more
open—almost like peeling a layer off an onion,” he says. “This album is a writer 18 years into his
career, peeling away the next layer and seeing just how human we can make this thing.”
Expanding on the raw vitality of previous albums like 2012’s Jason Isbell-produced Burn.Flicker.Die,
The Fear of Standing Still kicks offs with “Crier”: a gloriously ferocious track that swiftly obliterates
worn-out ideals of masculine behavior. “It’s a song about breaking down what many of us learned
from our fathers growing up—this idea that boys don’t cry, or that crying is a form of weakness,”
says Barham, who co-wrote “Crier” with singer/songwriter Stephen Wilson Jr. “I wanted to send
the message that it’s not natural to bottle everything up inside, because all of us are meant to feel.”
Fueled by a savage and soaring vocal performance from Barham, the result is a perfect encapsulation
of American Aquarium’s multilayered artistry. “I don’t think anyone’s going to get through that first
listen of ‘Crier’ and think, ‘Wow, what a great song about disrupting the cycle of toxic masculinity!’”
Barham points out. “It seems more likely that it’ll make them want to dance and jump around, and
then when they put the headphones on and listen a little closer to the lyrics, that’s when they’ll start
to understand what we’re talking about.”

A resolutely outspoken artist who’s emerged as one of the most progressive voices in country music,
Barham infuses an element of trenchant social commentary into a number of tracks on The Fear of
Standing Still. On “Southern Roots,” for instance, Georgia-born singer/songwriter Katie Pruitt joins
American Aquarium for a spellbinding meditation on pushing against the boundaries of traditional
Southern identity. “People can complain all they want about how backwards the South is, but the
only way we’ll see any change is to take it upon ourselves,” says Barham. “For me, that means raising
my daughter so that she’ll never witness the closed-mindedness and blatant disrespect for certain
people that I often saw at her age. Because if you really love something the way I love the South,
then you want to see it grow.” Co-written by Barham and Pruitt, “Southern Roots” starts off as a
beautifully understated folk song graced with heavenly harmonies, then builds to a reverb-drenched
frenzy at the bridge—a shift that sharply intensifies the track’s galvanizing power.
Another song anchored in Barham’s ardent belief in breaking generational patterns, “Babies Having
Babies” arrives as a finespun piece of storytelling that doubles as an emphatic pro-choice anthem.
“It’s a mix of fiction and personal experience, and felt like an important story to tell at a time when a
woman’s right to choose is being taken away,” says Barham. After opening on a nostalgic tale of a
whirlwind summer romance, “Babies Having Babies” slowly takes on a powerful urgency as the
narrative turns to questions of consequence and self-preservation (from the second verse: “We
packed up a bag and drove to the city/Shouldered through the pickets and the hand-painted
signs/They called her names while they called themselves Christians/That sort of hate’s got no place
in any faith of mine”). “I grew up in a small and very conservative town where abortion was not an
option, so I saw a lot of people trapped in that generational cycle of getting pregnant at a young age
and ending up stuck in the same town forever instead of following whatever dreams they might have
had,” says Barham. “I wanted to write about what could have happened if one of those girls had
refused to give up her aspirations, and made that choice to live another way.”
While American Aquarium bring a lived-in intimacy to all of The Fear of Standing Still, songs like
“Cherokee Purples” encompass a particularly tender emotionality. A wistful reminiscence of all the
charmed and wild summers of Barham’s youth, the track unfolds in so many gorgeously detailed
images (kudzu vines and fireflies, menthol cigarettes and Big League Chew), each rendered with a
loving specificity that lingers in the listener’s heart. “‘Cherokee Purples’ came from me making a
tomato sandwich in my kitchen, and immediately getting taken back to all the summer days when
we’d get dropped off at my grandmother’s so my parents could go to work,” says Barham. “It’s
crazy how something as simple as a tomato sandwich with Duke’s Mayonnaise can take me to a
whole other world, but to me it’s almost like a talisman of where I’m from and how I was raised.”
Meanwhile, on “The Curse of Growing Old,” American Aquarium look to the other end of the life
spectrum, conjuring a life-affirming mood despite the song’s excruciating honesty. “I wrote that
after talking with my grandmother at her 92 nd birthday party and learning what it was like for her to
grow older and watch so many people in her life pass away,” says Barham. “It’s true that getting
older is a gift, but it’s a gift we pay for with an incredible amount of loss.”
For Barham, the sharing of hard truths is indelibly tied to his sense of devotion to American
Aquarium’s audience—and to his belief in rock-and-roll as a singularly unifying force. “All I really
want to do is put words to the emotions that most people have a difficult time expressing on their
own,” he reveals. “No matter what that emotion is, when you put it into a song and then get to
those moments when a whole bunch of people are singing that song all together, it makes you see
that you’re part of something bigger than you ever realized. That’s when you can really affect
people’s lives, and to me this record is another stepping stone to making that a reality.”

About the Show and the Artist:

Performing "The Wall" in it's entirety

The Machine has forged a 30+ year reputation of extending the musical legacy of Pink Floyd. The New York-based quartet performs a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16-album repertoire, complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems.

With stellar musicianship and passionate delivery, The Machine explores collective improvisation rivaling that of an early 1970’s Pink Floyd, while their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays and lighting continues The Floyd spirit of the 1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans, and for taking an A – Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet. 

The Machine has sold out theaters, premier showcase rooms and casinos across North America, Europe and Asia, performed at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, and Gathering of the Vibes, and shared the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Charlotte and San Diego Symphonies, as well as the Buffalo Philharmonic.

The band features founding member Tahrah Cohen (drums), longtime bandmates Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals) and Ryan Ball (guitar, vocals), and newest member Chris DeAngelis (bass, lead vocals). The band continues on to celebrate the music of Pink Floyd and to honor the life of Joe Pascarell, who co-founded the band with Tahrah in 1988.

“They duplicate the sound and hits of Pink Floyd with chilling accuracy, and they play for a hell of a long time.”

“DESTINATION SOULTOWN”

FEATURING THE SENSATIONAL SOUL CRUISERS

Under the tutelage of legendary Jersey Shore saxophonist Screamin’ Steve Barlotta, The Sensational Soul Cruisers bring to you their Destination Soultown Show. This Concert focuses on iconic Classic Soul & Motown music from the period of time generally between the birth of Motown in 1960 to the release of Michael Jackson’s all-time selling Thriller Album in 1983.

Joined by 11 performers including a horn section, keyboardists, 4 vocalists and an incredible Rock & Soul rhythm section, the  Destination Soultown Experience recreates a note for note and absolutely live choreographed duplication of these classic tunes, from the early pioneers of Motown, Stax Records, Carolina Beach Music and The Sound of Philadelphia. Sprinkled throughout the show you will hear the sounds of artists like : Four Tops, Temptations, Jackson 5, Smokey Robinson, Sly and the Family Stone, The Spinners, Earth Wind & Fire, Edwin Starr, Sam & Dave, Carl Carton, Otis Redding, The Delfonics, Marvin Gaye, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, The Manhattans, Barry White, The Commodores, The Stylistics with many more soulful gems and surprises!

With their multimedia video backdrop this show transcends generations making it one to be loved by all.

ABOUT THE SENSATIONAL SOUL CRUISERS

The Sensational Soul Cruisers are not just another 11-man vocal harmony group with horns. While it is still sometimes possible to find a band featuring a similar line up of instruments, it is unlikely that you will ever find another that performs with as much energy, passion, and talent as these guys. From their humble beginnings rehearsing in Freehold Borough at the chicken coops on Route 33 to the basement of the Cycle Shop on Throckmorton Street, this band has come a long way from its “Eddie and the Cruisers” days to become one of New Jersey’s best kept secrets.

Under the tutelage of legendary Jersey Shore sax player Screamin’ Steve Barlotta, who has been the captain of this fantastic soul cruise for over 30 years, who has catapulted this band from the recesses of a dingy basement to over 200 performances a year while capturing the true essence of the Jersey Shore sound and its true R&B roots. Fortunately for those of us that feel that the sound of classic Philly Soul, Motown, Disco, Stax, and the music of The Temptations, Four Tops, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, The Trammps and other such groups was and still is some of the best music ever recorded or played live, there will be plenty of chances to see the Sensational Soul Cruisers perform this year and for many years to come. While the band travels to and plays concerts in theaters, clubs, public festivals, and private events throughout the country, they will be spending quite a bit of time up & down the east coast this year.

Over the past 3 decades the Soul Cruisers have been fortunate enough to grace the stage with many great artist from Bruce Springsteen, Little Anthony and The Imperials, Gloria Gaynor, Gary US Bonds, John Cafferty, Southside Johnny, The Emotions, Bon Jovi, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder. As well as being the long time favorite house band at New York City’s famed Copacabana.

Todd Rundgren on Tour

Fans never know what to expect from a Todd Rundgren show, which is a testament to his range as a musician. For example, his "The Individualist, A True Star" tour was named so because of its unique format: Along with a set of hits, Rundgren also performed a side of his seminal 1973 LP A Wizard, a True Star. In cities with multiple shows booked, the musician played a different side of the album each night.

No matter where Rundgren's creative muse takes him on a given tour, what stands out is his voice — an instrument that can handle both growling rock and blue-eyed soul — and his charismatic stage presence. Thanks to this versatility, Rundgren has also toured as part of Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band and, as a solo artist, opened for Hall & Oates and teamed up with Joe Jackson for a co-headlining tour. In 2019, he joined forces with the Monkees' Micky Dolenz, Christopher Cross and Badfinger's Joey Molland for the "It Was Fifty Years Ago Today – A Tribute to the Beatles' White Album" tour.

Todd Rundgren in Concert

Todd Rundgren first broke into the music business in the late '60s with the band Nazz, for whom he wrote "Open Your Eyes" and "Hello It's Me." He then released several solo albums, including 1972's Something/Anything? (which featured a re-recording of "Hello It's Me") and then founded the rock band Utopia, a group that drew on prog, power-pop and new wave. In 1983, Rundgren released one of his best-known songs, "Bang the Drum All Day."

In addition to his own work, Rundgren is also a well-respected studio artist who's produced albums for Hall & Oates, XTC, Psychedelic Furs and Meat Loaf. Rundgren has also continued to release solo albums, including 2017's White Knight, which featured guest spots from Robyn, Joe Walsh and Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor.

About the Show and the Artist:

Is there another songwriter so fearless and inventive?  Bending decades of pop music into new shapes, Neko Case wields her voice like a kiss and her metaphors like a baseball bat. She has cast the fishing net of her career wide—from Seattle and Vancouver to Chicago and Stockholm, setting up her home base on a farm in New England.

Gathering power year after year, Neko sings with the fierce abandon of a newborn infant crying in a basket in the woods. Since escaping the labels of country and Americana, the gorgeous train-whistle vocals of her early career sit submerged in her later style, where their ghost can appear any minute. When her voice jumps an octave, it’s almost visible, like sparks at night. “I never knew where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do with my voice,” she says, “but I just wanted to do it so bad.”

With a career spanning over twenty years, she has famously collaborated with The New Pornographers and Case/Lang/Veirs in addition to releasing many critically acclaimed solo albums, including ‘Fox Confessor Brings The Flood’, ‘Middle Cyclone’ and most recently 2018’s ‘Hell-On’.

ZOSO Celebrates 28 Years as America’s Premier Led Zeppelin Tribute Band
Over the 28 years and over 4500 shows since ZOSO came together as a group in the mid-‘90s, the
seemingly tireless quartet has continued to earn its well-deserved reputation as being, in the words of The
L.A. Times, “head and shoulders above all other Led Zeppelin tributes.”
ZOSO doesn’t cut corners on either the look or sound of Led Zeppelin. Instead, the band draws
liberally and meticulously from Led Zeppelin’s recorded live and studio output to present a vivid performance
picture of the classic live Zeppelin of 1968-1977. No wonder the St. Petersburg Times noted that, in addition
to their virtuosity and spot-on visual presentation, ZOSO is also “the most exacting of all the Led Zeppelin
tributes.” The Chicago Sun-Times put it even more succinctly: “[ZOSO is] the closest to the original of any
Led Zeppelin tribute.”
