There are many events, bands and venues still to talk about so let’s kick it off with more local acts rocking souls.

The Dirty Bird Gets Back to Business

The Brown Pelican, 411 Broad St., returned to the music, one week following Florence. Marron Chaplin offered several sets of rocking sounds to ease the minds of the troubled town on Friday, September 21, 2018. The talented singer-songwriter is performing at the coast this morning. If you are near the coast check her out from 10 am til noon at the Beaufort Farmer’s Market!

Blackbeard’s Triple Play

Back In Action

 

Two weeks after the storm Blackbeard’s Triple Play, 415 S Front St. reopened for business. They celebrated the weekend with a trio of bands, that brought great music to help celebrate their return following the flood.

.

On Friday, September 28, 2018, they opened their doors and welcomed Mason Jar Bonfire to the stage outside. The Lenoir County-based band rocked us with southern rock and country selections. Following their three-hour set, music fans headed inside to keep the beats with Train Wreck! This party band has a long history of turning up the funk and rocking this town. For fans of the band, they are rocking AJ McMurphy’s, 1914 Turnbury Dr., Greenville, NC, tonight. Music starts at 9 pm. Come dance and enjoy the beats!

℘℘℘℘

Following the Funk of TrainWreck on Friday, The BiPolar Express Delivered the Rock on Saturday!

The BiPolar Express rolled into town and took a break from the new reality so to rock and celebrate life and living it. Bass player Wick Wickline and his family is just another example of survival and fortitude. The music maker learned before the gig that FEMA would probably be demolishing their home. The family lost everything and is working through the process of rebuilding.

Helping many with the process is finding this need for finding NORMAL! The prescription for Wickline and his bandmates is rocking it hard for music fans and supporters. For those looking to get rocked by the 80’s and 90’s rock cover band, you can find them rocking The E Club, 8102 Emerald Dr., Emerald Isle, NC, tonight. Music starts at 10 pm and they roll you into Sunday!

City Stage and Folks Journal Supporting NC Music

On Friday, September 28, 2018, Folks Journal hosted a great night of music at City Stage offering the sounds of  Sometimes Lions featuring Asheville’s Holden Dixon. They performed a special night of original music with a few covers thrown in the mix.

The venue is serving up live entertainment and tasty treats on the regular. Come out any Tuesday through Saturday night after 5pm for entertainment, good food, and your favorite drinks!

Checking in with Our Local Solo Acts!

Two weeks after the storm it was easy to find music here there and everywhere in fact. I spent Friday, September 28 hopping and bopping, like I once did before the storm. I kicked things off in James City where I found Tommy Duzan Sr, jamming the tunes for fans and friends at BrÜtopia. When I crossed the bridge where the two rivers meet, I found a couple more local favorites rocking the night away. Rick Huff was giving his best to the fans and friends at The Brown Pelican. While Buck Loy offered the grooves to the folks that gathered at The Thirsty Bruin.

℘℘℘℘

Open Mic Madness Resumes

Two weeks following the wrath of Florence, Tiffany Elaine and her music-making friends got back to doing what they love… sharing songs. The trio is known as Now or Never, features T Elaine on vocals, Fernando Rivera on guitar and vocals and Steve Mehan on guitar. They along with other friends gather several times throughout the week to enjoy the fun music and making it!

They got back to the action on Monday, September 24, 2018, at Shortway Brewing Co. They host the open mic there on the second and fourth Monday of each month starting at 6 pm. On the first and third Tuesday, you can find them at Cru Bar and Wine Store /The Beaufort Coffee Shop, 120 Turner St., Beaufort. Music plays 8-11 pm all players are welcome. On the opposing Tuesdays, you can find them jamming at Crystal Coast Brewing Co 219 West Fort Macon Rd., Atlantic Beach, NC. Come to play 7-10 pm.

Walking into Week Three Post Flo We Rock with The Adam Hill Band

The Adam Hill Band weathered the storm well and have been busy rocking their sounds. Last week the band was the featured entertainment for the Beauty and the Beast 5th Annual Fall Car Show. The solid rock trio offered the music from midday until it was Awards time. The popular rock band will be heading to another hard-hit area to deliver their healing rock grooves tonight. You can catch them rocking tonight at Bourbon St., Wilmington. Music starts at 9 pm.

It’s Been a Long Pause! There is Plenty of Cause! Let’s Rise Up with Music!

IMG_1607 (2)

When We Last Danced

By the grace of God, it’s time to get back to the music! When I last left you we just finished the second weekend of September and those along the coast of North and South Carolina started planning and then bracing for the devastating effects of Hurricane Florence. About this time a month ago she was barreling toward us and thankfully downgrading on her approach. After watching the news on Michael just last night, I am ever so grateful for the fact that Florence weakened her wrath unto us.

Though I have not been able to bring you a music blog, rest assured, I have been keeping the beats and am glad to be back sharing the news! I am here to assure you that, although the river is not always graceful and pretty… we as a community, however, are fierce and strong. With Florence now in our wake, we found out we are #NewBernStrong!

Let’s celebrate by recapping the music news that we missed!

Music Coverage ~ Picking Up Where We Left Off

 

5th Annual Barn Bash For Promise Place

Bryan Mayer was the musical guest for The Fifth Annual Barn Bash. This event was the best yet for Promise Place, the non-profit organization who has been helping the community heal from sexual assault and abuse for decades. Located in New Bern, Promise Place serves Jones, Pamlico and Craven Counties. On Saturday, September 8, 2018, the Annual Fund Raiser took place on the Batten Farm. It offers guests and sponsors, a good meal, adult beverages, desserts for auction, live entertainment, raffles and a live auction all in the spirit of raising money for the non-profit that works hard in healing our community.

♦♦♦♦

Off The Wagon and On the Beach

Bryan Mayer Always has Time for A Good Cause

#FlorenceRecovery

 

I would meet Bryan Mayer again at the month’s end, when he was taking part in a Hurricane Relief Benefit on Sunday, September 30, 2018, at the Tackle Box Tavern in Atlantic Beach. This event offered relief to those along the Crystal Coast and Carteret County. The entire area has been devastated and is rebuilding from the wrath of Florence. There are many events in the works to bring aid and assist with relief. As we get back to the music coverage more regularly, I look forward to talking about events that help rebuild our area by way of music.

On this particular Sunday Funday, Bryan McCoury, Bryan Mayer and Davy Williamson offered music to those in attendance. There was a $5.00 donation paid at entry and raffles throughout the night. All the money raised went to rebuilding the local Atlantic Beach Community.

GEM Productions, Folks Journal, City Stage, the TinyTornado and Local Music Makers Join Together For the Celebration of Community

#NewBernStrong

 

The first benefit I attended was actually in New Bern, on Friday, September 22, 2018, the community gathered for music, food, fellowship, and goodwill toward each other. We joined together for the purpose of bringing aid to the hard-hit area of New Bern, NC. Together we gathered at the City stage, 901 Pollock Street, not far from where our community has been most devastated. But the goodwill and kindness won’t be silenced in this town and the music will play on!

Opening the night was Caroline Tanner who was joined by her daughter Kira Vetters. Following their 30 minute set, Adam Hill offered another acoustic set under the tent. After the sun went down on a beautiful day, we saw our community come together on the spot to raise nearly $2600 in funds, offered food to nearly 500 hungry people and distribute cleaning supplies and other donated goods to people in need throughout the night.

 

It was a beautiful night, that was well orchestrated by the staples in our music community. Folks Journal’s staff were some of the first sets of boots on the ground after the storm and secured storage units, housing, lined up volunteers and did so much more in the first few weeks following the storm. Giving of themselves, even after they suffered major losses themselves.

Much is true of the cooks and music makers, promoters and more. We saw gathering to help the community. It was quite beautiful to watch the essence of God working in all of us! On stage inside the club were local talents. Big Jim Kohler Blues Band offered the opening set inside and The Hot Buttered Grits closed out the fun night of music and community celebration.

 

The reality of life in New Bern now is, that we talk about life as we know it after Florence. We are all walking about looking for the beats and striving to find our new normal. As for the bands that played, both had players that lost a lot in the flood. Some lost it all while others are recovering from only a few feet of surge. People all around us are recovering from a loss of work and loss of home. Many have lost it all, from cars, houses, boats, and businesses. This is a community on the mend like never before. But thanks to our awesome first responders, military personnel, volunteers and other trained specialists, as well as our small businesses and music community, we healing daily.

The stories of this storm are enough to flood any soul with emotion. Big Jim and Kathleen Kohler lost their home to Irene in 2011. After 5 years of waiting for the process, they moved into their raised house and evacuated when Florence came calling. After all, things were assessed the family returned to learned they lost the contents of their garage, and all of their floors need to be replaced. Once again the heartache and the blues meet the Kohlers at River Bend. They take it with a smile and play the blues for others.

Vocalist, guitarist, and mandolin jammer for the Hot Buttered Grits, Seth Smith, and his family lost their house to the rage of Florence. Grits drummer Zack Meadows also saw water rise in his home a few feet, “Just enough to make a mess, ya know.” he said when we spoke! “We are blessed, when you hear how people have lost it all, it’s truly sad.”

Local DJ on the scene and local music promoter Parker Millar and his girlfriend lost their vehicles on the return home from Asheville. They got caught in a flash flood on the way home and lost most of the things they were trying to save during the evacuation, as well as their cars. Luckily first responders arrived on sight to rescue the pair. Millar recently started work with our local news station and radio outfit that was flooded during Florence. When I tell you that the people we know are hurting, I promise you it is not an exaggeration. Some days there are no words for the exhaustion and sadness.

Big hearts like Grant Golden, Bailey Evans, Meg Wetherington, Leigh-Anne Sullivan, Tank Wetherington, Joshua Storts, Chris Strange, Patrick Edwards, Nichole Kirch and many many more are true examples of why this city has a heartbeat big enough for the world to feel…I applaud and thank you all. I look forward to working with all of you on many more benefits in the days ahead as we rebuild.

Throughout the weeks we will catch up with the music makers and share the stories. We will take part in celebrations of recovery and healing, and we will raise funds with the fun of music and fellowship. Thank you for still being here and dancing with me! I have missed you much!

Morehead City, NC ~

Sadly the waterfront took a hard hit with the fierce winds and flood surge of Florence. They were not able to rebound in enough in time to welcome their Annual Fall event, The NC Seafood Festival. It is understandable when you consider the amount of damage sustained by many businesses which are still out of commission and on the mend.

When you are ready for a break please check out the local scene and support the businesses that are still open and serving the community.

Holiday Weekend Wrap Up and A Local Supergroup Debuts In New Bern

On the Scene With Tracey Stones

21462312_705047689706415_943199151033388141_n

Sunday is a Funday When Monday Takes A Holiday

The Adam Hill Band rocked Sunday Funday at Dukenfield’s Tavern, in Half Moon, NC. The band offered a great many favorites from classic rock to country. Of all the songs played, it was most awesome to hear them offer their original music. With that being said, here is the band with their song “Change.”

Change By the Adam Hill Band

Speaking of change, one thing that helped change things for the band this year was the opportunity to share some dates with the national touring act, Second Helping. They are based out of NC and serve as the longest running Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Band.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As a result of this opportunity, Hill has traveled more and found quite a few like minds to keep company with while on the road. Following some time after a while, the idea of a new band emerge.

The Potters Hill Band is the result of that idea. The big band offering classic as well as southern rock and blues hits; made their debut in New Bern. Taking the stage on the deck at Blackbeard’s Triple Play Restaurant last night, they rocked the crowd and got hips shaking with their fun music.

Getting their name from the place they gather to rehearse, this band came about as a result of Chris McCallister wanting to share the stage with Adam Hill. Joining the two slingers are Jon Riggs, vocals and guitar, Tom Spellman, Josh Overby, and Dave Nichols also on the six strings.  Rick Ellis on bass, Joey Gilette on drums. Along with the skilled playing, they also offer beautiful harmonies with the backing vocals of Fleeta Griffith and Laura McCallister. Helping on some harmonies when time allows is Tracey Brenneman as well.

Much of the set list was offered with an off the cuff appeal, highlighting the ability of all players. In all, the meat and potatoes of the band got together for no more than five rehearsals.

The line up last night was nothing short of an all-star cast of local talent, that came together for the sake of fun and good times with music. Last night was memorable in that in all my years of covering live, local music, I never covered a SUPERGROUP. This was exciting. Players from five bands came together to rock the night. Those bands which were in part represented include The BiPolar Express, with Josh Overby offering some licks, Bern It Down was there with Tracey Brenneman offering backing tracks, Eight Track made the mix with bass player Rick Ellis offering his talents, The Adam Hill Band was present with Hill representing, and of course Second Helping had the most to offer with Chris McCallister on guitar, his lovely bride Laura on backing vocals, Fleeta Griffith joining her, drummer Joey Gilette, and guest guitarist Tom Spellman.

In all, there might have been time for a handful of practices and in some cases, that was evident. However, the fun part was watching off of these skilled players working things out. It’s not every day we have 30 guitar strings going at it with a rhythm section and three-part harmonies. It was quite sweet to take it in from all sides of the stage. The band is working on booking more dates around town and the area. You can keep up with that news by finding the band on Facebook by clicking this link: Potters Hill Band.

For fans of the band Second Helping, they have a date on the books this month. Mark the calendars for Saturday, September 22, 2018, and come to enjoy the show at the Red Room, 220 N Herritage St., Kinston, NC. Music starts at 10 pm.

For friends and fans of The Adam Hill Band, you can find Hill playing solo tonight at Crossroads Grill & Bar, Highway 55, Seven Springs, NC. Music is free and plays from 10 pm until 2 am. Tomorrow Hill will join the band at Capt. Bob Beck’s Marina Cafe for Sunday Funday. Music plays from 5-8 pm. Come to enjoy the great grooves and free food!

Friends and fans of Tracey Brenneman Music and her band Bern It Down, they are currently seeking a lead guitar player. If you are looking for your next break be sure to reach out to Brenneman on Facebook.

Open Mic Madness at the Dirty Bird Brings Talent

 

One of the greatest parts of any open mic is, you never know who is going to show up. It has been a few weeks since I check out the open mic that is hosted weekly at The Brown Pelican. On Thursday evening I decided to stick around town and check things out around here for a change. I am so glad I did. Though it was one of the more quite open mics, it was jam-packed with talented players. The highlight of it was watching them all join together for a few songs after many solo acts offered their selections.

The night included delightful music offered by a trio of friends, CDS as the deemed themselves is simply music brothers Cecil, Doug, and Steve. With the fluttering notes of flute and the sweet sound of strings joining the mix, this group was fun, unique and full of talent. Later in the night, they were joined by host, Brian Mac on bongo, Randy Moore on electric guitar and Henry on the acoustic six-string. Before the night was done, bar back, Mike took to the stage and offered a few new songs he learned earlier in the day. That just makes my heart sing. I love being around to catch such a special moment.

Open mic is the kick off of music offerings each week at The Brown Pelican, 411 Broad Street, New Bern, NC. Sign up starts at 7 pm and music starts rocking at 8 pm. Live music offerings continue with acoustic acts serving the sounds from 7-10 pm each Friday night and bands rocking the stage from 8-11 pm every Saturday night. Tonight Selina Solomon will rolling town to deliver the sounds bar owner Heather Haiss loves. She will be helping the bar owner celebrate her birthday. I think she turns 29 today! No really!

Happy Birthday to a Bluesman and Rocking with New Bern’s Rock Trio

Happy Birthday, Blues Man, Let’s Celebrate You!

40152152_899500196927829_1761224843795103744_o.jpg

What a beautiful day. Today truly is a special day. Some of my favorite people in the world were born on this day, for that I celebrate!!! One of them is the coolest blues cat around these parts. Big Jim Kohler walked into my life with his music in March 2013 and changed it for the greater good in so many ways.

From 2013-2017 Big Jim played his blues to my begging ears regularly and each time he and his bride, Kathy Kohler, did that; it nourished a part of my soul that had been neglected for decades. It was enough to get me thinking about writing again. Once I scored a smartphone capable of good video in 2014, I started videotaping and taking pics. By 2015 I was publishing music news weekly and many weeks I mentioned Big Jim and his blues!

A year ago my sweet friend was clinging to life and coming out of a medically induced coma for his 50th birthday. I sat next to his bed with his hand in mine and prayed for God to keep him here with us. In my talks with God, I explained how we had more good work to do. I told God that if Jim pulled through I would spend the rest of my days trying to build a healthier music community for him to play. That mission still walks with me daily.

Now that he is on the road to recovery from his addiction to alcohol, feeling better every day and out here playing his blues for us again. I am even more inspired to see a foundation for music makers. There is a great need for a Blues Society in our area and that is in the works as part of the overall mission. Big Jim is the ambassador of it all!

IMG_1658

This weekend Big Jim is celebrating his birthday with friends, and doing what he loves…he is playing his blues for a wedding in the mountains today. You can catch him on stage at The City Stage on Tuesday, September 18, 2018. Music will be served from 7-9 pm. To keep up to speed with the band, check out this link: Big Jim Kohler 

Before we leave here running, cause walkin’ is much too slow, let me say:

Happy Birthday, bluesman!

The BiPolar Express Rocked The Tarheel

IMG_5886.JPG

A local trio of rockers, known best as The BiPolar Express opened the night of rock-driven performances at The Tarheel Concert Venue, in Jacksonville, NC. The New Bern based band features Josh Overby on guitar and vocals, Wick Wickline on bass and vocals, and Mike Lancaster on drums and vocals. They are a fun cover band offering all the great songs from the 80’s and 90’s hair band era. This alone made them a great pick for opening the night for the popular 80’s band Great White.

They are all well-rounded and talented players, who have great fun when they gather on stage. They offer classic like Ratt’s “Round and Round,” AC/DC’s “Whole Lotta Rosie” Bon Jovi, “Livin’ On A Prayer” Morris Day and The Time’s “Jungle Love,” when they want to funk you up, and even Mötley Crüe, Poison and Guns n Roses music is also featured in their setlist!

If you have not seen this rocking trio, be sure to pencil them in soon. You will not be disappointed.

Jack Russell’s Great White

Closing out the rock bill at the Tarheel Concert Venue, was Jack Russell’s, Great White. For those old enough to hold memories of the 80’s Hair Band Rock Era then you will remember this band from their chart-topping hit “Once Bitten Twice Shy”

Following the show, I did some research on the man and the band and here is what I learned, mostly from Wikipedia:

The band originated under the will of teen rocker Jack Russell, who was the drummer for the band in the early days, and Mark Kendall who was the co-founder and guitar player. They first came together under the name Highway. As they evolved they became Livewires. They ended that era by playing their last gig as Wires.

As they rocked through the 80’s they would become the chart-toppers known to us as Great White. They offered several hits including  “Save Your Love” and “Rock Me” with their first album Once Bitten in 1987. Twice Shy is what gave us their greatest hit, “Once Bitten Twice Shy.”

The band continued to rock through the 90’s without any chart-topping success until they broke up in 2001.

In 2002, Russell was keeping busy with his own project, but having a hard time attracting audiences, so he got together with Kendall and asked for permission to tour under the name of “Jack Russell’s Great White.”

The following year the band would make headlines after a playing a show at a bar on Rhode Island called The Station. The sell out crowd was ready to rock the new year right, when sadly an accident turned the night to tragedy and the soundproofing in the club caught fire, leading to a blaze that claimed 100 lives. One of the lives lost was the band’s guitarist Ty Longley.

Since 2011, Russell has been keeping busy, releasing music and touring. The current line up features, obviously, Jack Russell, lead vocals, percussion, Tony Montana, rhythm guitar, backing vocals, keyboards, harmonica; Robby Lochner, lead guitar, backing vocals, Dicki Fliszar, drums, backing vocals and Dan McNay, bass guitar, backing vocals.

During their show last night at the Tarheel they offered a great many of their own works, but Russell also took us on a journey of how he got into this rock n roll business and offered some Hendrix and Zeppelin samplings as well.

There are a couple of newer songs I found to be worthy of your listening time. The one song they offered last night that resonated with me was “My Addiction.” It’s a moving song with lots of truth. If you would like to check it out, just click here:

 My Addiction by Jack Russell’s Great White

From Country to Rock and from the Blues to Open Mic Madness NCMZ Has You Covered

 

Saturday Sessions ~ Music School ~ Class Is In

 

Last Saturday evening I was invited to a night of music featuring new talent on the rise. The performance showcased the students enrolled at Earl Jones Music School Academy,  located in Jacksonville, NC.

Earl Jones Music Revue

The school is owned and by Earl Jones and father to John Jones, who was presenting his students with an opportunity to learn about performance. They not only offer the traditional lessons at the Academy, they also help prepare students for some other aspects of the music business.

Rob Gasperon
Charlotte Whatley
Chloe Bergen

 

In Saturday’s lesson, the students were versed in recording a television show and they all shined during their performances. The four students that were featured for that part of the program included Rob Gasperson, who offer a couple of selections on piano; Charlotte Whatley, who played guitar and sang a song for us; Chloe Bergen offered a more modern selection with the six string and her voice and Meredith Wilson who played a couple of numbers, the first a solo performance and the follow-up featuring  John Jones on guitar. Wilson picked up the guitar a month ago but sounds like she has been signing for a lifetime. She is ambitious and wishes to learn all the instruments but set out with the guitar when she signed up with the Academy under Jone’s direction.

The Ramshackles

There were many that took the stage. Four of the players were Academy Students who took to the stage before John Jones came front and center with his Ramshackle Band. They offered a set of original works featuring Kaitlyn Humphrey on bass guitar and Rusty Hatcher added percussion.

John Jones and his Ramshackle Band with Ghost Town

It was great fun to hear Jones perform his own compositions. I have grown to know him as the media host for Music Monday, which airs Monday on Thunder Country 96.3 FM at 8:30 am weekly! I have watched him sit in with guests on guitar and slide guitar as well. So it was a new angle to hear him perform with students and fellow music makers alike.

Making it even more delightful, I sat with Tom Barbee and his bride for the performance. The cameraman, Justin Kilpatrick was sporting his son’s T-shirt. I spotted that Hank Barbee shirt just as soon as I snuck into the room.

 

Closing out the night was the talented Justin Rivenbark from Wallace, NC, including Jones on bass and Hatcher on percussions for a round!

In all, it was a fun night of folk and country offerings music, as well as a look at some of the great features students have access to when they sign up at the Earl Jones Music School. Beyond learning how to play the instruments of choice, students can become a part of the Academy and learn the ins and outs of the business too. The school is limited for space for private lessons and Jones currently has a waiting list. However for anyone interested in the Academy be sure to call 910-353-6633 for more information.

Before I go, a big applause and hats off to the production companies too that assist in these lessons. Tutt Media handled the camera work and video production with Otis Tutt and Justin Kilpatrick filming and Eric Baily of  Anywhere PRO Audio & Entertainment engineering the sound. It was a job well done by all involved.

We Were Thunderstruck On Saturday Under Clear Skies

Down on the Farm with ThunderstruckNC

When I noted, that I was going to be in the area for Thunderstruck, at Humphrey Farm Festival and Event Center in Hubert, NC, on Saturday night, I had to stop by and get rocked. This band is rarely in our area and they are the most fun you can have with a set of AC/DC songs! It was a great time for rockin’ jams familiar to the dedicated fans! Before my exit, the fan base was stage side and rocking right along with the band!

This band is full of energy and Jeff Young on guitar knows how to work for the crowd. He certainly has grown into his role as a showman over the years in his stage character of Angus Young. With a friendship that spans more than a decade and connected by music, I have enjoyed the journey of Young’s career. He is the first NC artist I ever wrote about. He was with the band High Voltage and I wrote an article for the band’s MySpace profile. It was just a few days back, since then.

Young is an impressive guitarist who not only emulates heroes remarkably well but also offers original music with other band projects. A couple of years ago he cut chops and chords with Last Call Messiahs, who were nominated for the best rock band award at the 2016 Carolina Music Awards.

Nowadays, Young keeps busy with Thunderstruck NC and his new project with vocalist Lee Robinson, Nightrain. The new band is a Guns n Roses Tribute act that is based out of Raleigh, NC. Both bands have gigs coming up in the month ahead, so be sure to like both bands pages on Facebook and make some time to go get rocked!

On Monday I headed out to Open Mic hosted by the hard-working Tiffany Elaine. Every second and fourth Monday she hosts a night of music at Shortway Brewing Co with music being served by a variety of talented artists from 6-9 pm.
