It’s Local Favorites, New Faces, and Grand Places

On The Scene With Tracey Stones

This week offers some local favorites, new faces and grand places supporting live music. Above, blog supporter, Kathleen Forrest with Hank Barbee at The Brown Pelican on Saturday, January 12, 2019

Saturday Starts with a Pause for a Cause

I caught up with The Adam Hill Band on Saturday afternoon. The trio of rockers was on hand to perform, following a poker run that honored the life of Jay Roberts.

The band rocked the stage at Rena J’s on Wilmington Highway, Jacksonville, NC. They welcomed riders at the end of the run and took a pause for the spreading of Robert’s ashes. The Last Ride for the lost brother offered memories and music, food and more.

Adam Hill offers sliding scales

The band offered a good variety of rock and southern rock favorites, while mixing in their own awesome originals. It has been a while since I caught up with the trio! But when I finally did, I learned that drummer Cecil Pittman Jr. is working behind the scenes compiling the things needed to run sound for shows.

The idea which appeals most to Pittman is finding a room and working the sound for their music events. If you have a music venue and you often thought about providing a house sound and lights operation, consider reaching out to Pittman. You can reach him by phone by dialing 910-990-5278.

For fans and friends of the Adam Hill Band, the band will be rocking the beach tomorrow. Come enjoy a Wilmington NC night and take in the sounds of this rocking trio at Bourbon Street Wilmington. Music starts at 9 pm.

Here’s a clip from last weekend’s memorial benefit. This is an original, “Full House.”

Back In The Bern We Boogie

Caffeinated Soul Boogie poured out the grooves at BrUtopia last Saturday night, to usher in their 2019 music season. The New Bern based band is looking forward to spreading out this year and bringing their show to more people around the region.

The Dust Settles at The Dirty Bird

Hank Barbee and The Dust Parade paid a visit to The Brown Pelican last Saturday night and grooved his many fans on hand at “The Dirty Bird.”

The band opened the night with some newer, soon to be recorded original music. After we got comfortable and in the mood, they offered brand new material for all to enjoy. (I consider it brand new if I never heard it!!!) I was glad to be in the room, ready to record. Here is Day of Decay by The Dust Parade.

The Wilmington based band played to a full house of fans, that have missed their surf sounds. It has been a few months since the band played around town. They have been busy playing around the region and doing their part in raising funds and awareness for Hurricane Relief for the many areas affected by Florence.

Making up beats last week were Hank Barbee on vocals and guitar, Jim Durham offered supporting vocals and saxophone; Matt Henderson played the bass and filling in on drums was, The Spread’s own Will Phetterplace.

Tonight the Dusty Trio featuring Barbee, Durham, and Henderson will be rocking the Crystal Coast. More on that below, but to keep up with this fun and fabulously creative band visit http://www.hankbarbee.com

TrainWreck Pulls into Blackbeard’s

On Saturday night, TrainWreck pulled into the station to groove the folks on the deck at Blackbeard’s Triple Play Restaurant. The Greenville based band with New Bern roots, always brings the party.

This band has a long history of rocking the region with funky pop tunes that everyone knows and loves. They come out in many formations. Sometimes they offer dueling horns while other nights they feature two lead singers. If you have not checked in with them lately, make it a point to rock with them soon.

Open Mic Madness in Newport Makes Monday Less Mundane

On Monday night I headed out to Shortway Brewing Co. in Newport, NC to enjoy the maple stout and open mic night. This great community beer stop offers many flavors of beer, brewed on site in their brew room. The family-owned operation puts community first and opens the floor to local singer-songwriters on the second and fourth Monday of each week.

This week I enjoyed the sounds of Wiregrass, the bluegrass band featuring Pat and Brian Till, who will be at Courtyards at Berne Village in New Bern tomorrow afternoon, offering songs to residence from 1-3 pm.

I also got to catch up with blog supporters, Phillip Canelos (pictured above) and Ashton Ward as well. Both offered several acoustic selections for the crowd to enjoy. Before the night ended we also enjoyed the music of Steve Mehan and a few numbers courtesy of Mackenzie Webb

Keeping the Beats in New Bern Last Night We Find Some Soul Boogie, Party People and Talented Stringers

On The Scene With Tracey Stones

 

44877913_10217426494841078_3663059185920114688_n.jpg

 

Keeping the beats close to home last night, it seems when you ride around in a vehicle with nearly 400,000 miles, sometimes it is wise to stay close to home base. Lucky for me, we live in New Bern, NC and that means plenty of music options for your weekend fun.

Caffeinated Soul Boogie

Last night I started things off in James City, where I stopped by BrÜtopia, to enjoy the sounds of the New Bern based band known as Caffeinated Soul Boogie. They offered their grooves last night from 7-10 pm, to a packed house of onlookers and listeners. This local act features a father and daughter duo, that has expanded to become a full band with great songs to share. Making the music is singer Darria Yeager, who has the voice of an angel, her father Derrick Moore plays the guitar
Javier Sinobas is the one offering the bass notes while Tanner Bright keeps the beats.

In addition to the sweet sounds they make, the band welcomed local blues legend Bob Clyde to the stage, to help out with some harmonica parts. It was a great night of music and keeping beats. The crowd was enjoying the food being served by Nest Cafe and the beer brewed right there at BrÜtopia.

To get familiar with this fun area band that offers a mix of folk, Americana and blues music be sure to check out their band page on Facebook:

Spare Change Offers the Party Grooves

I can’t tell you how many times I have come close to seeing this next band. But let me just say, it has been more than a few times that I just missed the rocking sounds of Spare Change. In fact, it happened just weeks ago. My case in point, they rocked the morning away at the Amped Up for Youtilities event in Morehead City. They were finishing up their last song when I was rounding the corner and making my way to the stage.

Last night, however, the LaGrange based band rocked the night away on the back deck at Blackbeard’s where plenty of people joined the fun. Making the grooves come to life in this popular band are Jordan Rouse, guitar and vocals, Jeff Morris in the back behind the kit; Veronica Wall upfront and leading the vocals. I am unclear on who is holding down the bass, and who rocked the other guitar, but all in all this band is a lot of fun.

The draw here of course is, they play songs that bring us back to when life was carefree and fun. They play popular songs that we all know and love, and many that make us want to dance. Tonight the band has a gig lined up at The Deck at River Twist. The band will be rocking the popular grooves tonight from 8:30-11:30 pm. To keep up with the beats of this band, be sure to visit their website by clicking this link:

Genre: Funk
Location: New Orleans, LA

George Porter, Jr. is best known as the bassist of The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. The group was formed in the mid 60’s and came to be recognized as one of the progenitors of funk then called R&B. The Meters disbanded in 1977 but reformed in 1989. Today the original group still plays the occasional reunions but the Funky Meters, of which Porter and Neville are still members, most prominently keeps the spirit alive.

Few bass players in the history of modern New Orleans music are as storied as George Porter Jr. During the course of a career spanning more than four decades, Porter has not only made a deep impression with his work in The Meters, but he’s notched session work with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, Taj Mahal, Ryan Montbleau and live performances with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno (and including recent studio releases with Warren Haynes and Bill Kreutzmann) just to name a few.

Porter is also the bandleader of his own unique long-term project the Runnin’ Pardners. He has assembled some seasoned and talented musicians to join him on this project. Familiar Pardners – Brint Anderson (guitar) and, Michael Lemmler (keyboards) and rising stars on the New Orleans music scene Khris Royal (saxophone) and Terrence Houston (drums). George Porter Jr. plans to keep a smile on his face.” I feel like I am working towards something that will be remembered.”

Today, Porter features that epic bottom end in his latest ventures with his own band the Runnin’ Pardners.

FLOW TRIBE

Genre: Funk/Rock/Psychedelic/Blues
Location: New Orleans, LA

Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band’s onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement, that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. Outfitted for each performance in colorful, carefully selected suits, it’s clear their focus is sharp and the party has begun. This is the work of professional musicians who’ve found their passion and are living a dream where everyone’s welcome.

Second line brass and Cuban-Caribbean rhythms meld with R&B, soul, rock, and hip-hop beat, in high-energy performances that turn every show into a celebration. New Orleans has influenced itself, the unparalleled free and easy city weaving its way into track after track of original scores, that make up a single definition of sound, which Flow Tribe has dubbed “backbone-cracking music.”

K.C. O’Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Russell Olschner (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) are native New Orleanians and high school pals, who’ve been writing music and playing live shows since the band’s inception in 2004. Post-graduation they went their separate ways, but after Katrina each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a community that’s stronger than ever. Flow Tribe may well be the city’s next music ambassadors.

NOVEMBER 17, 2018 · SATURDAY * 8PM * $25 SEATED / $20 STANDING

Juke Joint at the Edge of the World is the eleventh studio release from esteemed singer-songwriter Randall Bramblett, a multi-instrumentalist musician with a career spanning four decades. Highly sought-after for his creativity, as both a collaborator and skilled touring sideman, the legendary Georgian’s talent has earned him the respect of his peers and many of rock’s finest luminaries. While having shared stages with artists such as Steve Winwood, Bonnie Raitt, The Allman Brothers, and Widespread Panic, among others, it’s Bramblett’s own career as frontman where his artistry is truly on full display.

Deep into the self-described second act of his solo career, Bramblett aims to recreate the literature of the blues with music about nowhere people in nowhere lands. Conjuring equal parts Tom Waits, William Burroughs, and hallelujah chorus, his music again comes alive with this new collection of songs. With a commitment to the story of his characters and the necessary mutation of music, Bramblett has kept his solo career as fresh as the day it began.

This evolving engine of creativity is due, in large part, to the familiarity and bond shared with his band mates.

Come out for a special night of music and enjoy the great food too.

Halloween Creeps In, The Beat Goes Down and The Music Plays On

On the Scene With Tracey Stones

Last night I stayed local and caught a couple early shows!

Thirsty Bruin Hosts Local Singer & Stringer Ed Prophet

 

Last night the weather offered more rain which put a damper on some events about town, but what I did manage to catch I thoroughly enjoyed! My first stop brought me to The Thirsty Bruin, 224 Middle St., New Bern, where I enjoyed the sounds of local song maker Ed Prophet. The talented stringer and singer keeps busy on the road offering music to fans along the Crystal Coast. I had just missed Ed last weekend at the Cape Carteret Fall Festival, so seeing him last night was long overdue. He offered two fine sets to friends that gathered at the Thirsty Bruin last night. Tonight the singer will be entertaining at The Church Street Deli and Pub, located at 99 W Church St., Swansboro, NC. Music is offered from 7-10 pm. To keep up with this singer please find him on ReverbNation by clicking his name:

Carolina Sky Delights Bike Riders and Offers Bluegrass and More

There was a fundraiser in full swing last night when I stopped at The Brown Pelican and Carolina Sky was offering the fun grooves when I got there. They performed in a trio formation with Caroline Tanner, Phil Lanier, Sara Rosellen offering the sounds with all things strings. They swapped out between banjo, guitars, mandolins, and violin. The beautiful thing about this band is their uniqueness. At press time I had no news about upcoming gigs, but when I hear the news I will share it with you first!

The Brown Pelican often teams up with local charities to combine, music, food and fundraising fun. Next month you can join the cause for the cause with Lily Fest, brought to us by GEM Productions and the good people at Bernaroo Music and Arts Festival and help support the Coastal Women’s Shelter.

Carolina Lily Fest 2018

GEM Productions is proud to announce that Carolina Lily Fest returns for its fourth year on November 17th, as New Bern’s premier outlet for the celebration of powerful women in our community. Each year, Carolina Lily Fest hosts an array of female musicians, artists, and vendors, who donate their time and efforts to raise money for the Coastal Women’s Shelter, the sole provider of no-cost comprehensive domestic violence services in Craven, Jones, and Pamlico counties. CWS is an organization that does so much to provide for our community, so let’s bear together and help raise funds for this incredible organization. This year’s event will return to The Brown Pelican for an evening full of female empowerment for a fantastic cause!

This year’s event will be headlined by the immensely talented Crystal Bright, an incredible Chapel Hill-based singer/multi-instrumentalist, who blends European and American world music influences, twisting her music into a darkly cinematic yet operatic burst of energy. Additional eastern NC based acts will be announced soon!

Carolina Lily Fest is open to any female performers/female-centric groups, poets, arts or crafts vendors who would like to participate. If you’re interested in joining us as a part of Carolina Lily Fest, send an email over to bernaroomusicfest@gmail.com

Let’s Kick the Weekend into High Gear with Music

New Bern Boasts the Blues Weekly

I have said it before and I will tell you again; the blues is alright! Knowing that we can celebrate it each week is equally as wonderful. It was announced earlier this month the Big Jim Kohler would be the regular Tuesday entertainment at City Stage New Bern, located at 901 B Pollock St., New Bern, NC.

Since the club opened, Big Jim has been a regular feature on stage., but now they have increased the volume on the blues and will be ushering in each Tuesday with two sets of fun and fine Chicago style blues with Big Jim on guitar and vocals, and his beautiful bride, Kathy Kohler on vocals, Chris Buttita on bass and Tom Parker on drums. Music from these cats starts at 7 pm and the entertainment is free.

If you have not heard Big Jim bring his blues, you are missing out on New Bern’s blazing sapphire string man. Born with many talents, he pursued music only after sports led him to injury. Here is the most recent band bio drafted by Kathy sent to me by Big Jim earlier in the week.

Meet the Band!

“Nearly 30 years into a playing career, Big Jim Kohler manages to keep it fresh every time he makes his way to the stage. He started cutting chords in clubs on Long Island and in New York City, before long he was playing festivals and alongside heroes and friends. With many stories to share and two CD’s under his belt; The Road Goes On Forever and The Party Never Ends.

On the caravan, these days are Kathy Kohler, a veteran of theater and clubs. Singing blues and gospel all while being the wife and mom to Big Jim’s brood. Chris Buttita is on bass; hailing from Chicago, Buttita also plays bass for North Carolina’s Hot Buttered Grits, a New Bern based jam band with a large and devoted fan base that love roots, funk and jamming good music. The drum stool is manned by Tom Parker from Syracuse, NY. Parker crossed Big Jim’s path out on the road, back in the day when Parker was keeping the beat with harp master Carey Bell and Kohler was swapping licks and backing the legendary bluesman Son Seals. After running into each other in Eastern Carolina it was only natural for the two to team up.

Always a good time Big Jim Kohler moves on playing intimate clubs or on larger stages with the same love for music and his audience.”

For those who can’t make it out on Tuesday, be sure mark your calendar for Saturday, November 10, 2018. That is when you can take a little trip to the scenic Oriental, NC to take a pause for the cause and meet the Kohler’s, as the belt the blues to raise money for Pamlico Community College. They will perform from 4-7 pm at The New Village Brewery located on Broad Street. There will also be a silent auction, free pizza and great craft beer available at the cash bar.

Chasing Rain Clouds & Finding Festivals

Speaking of the blues, that is one thing that the sky wasn’t last Saturday as I rode around from one festival to another trying to escape the raindrops, which greeted me at all locations, until it was time to go to an indoor gig, of course.

Cape Carteret Fall Festival

 

Cape Carteret hosted their First Annual Fall Festival, which featured a variety of vendors, fall fun for the family and live music. The event was hosted at a town park and offering the live music. When I showed up was The Mad Fiddler, Jason Addams; and Davis Lott  offering a variety of familiar favorites, including, “Witchy Woman,” a song that fits great in the fall. Also included in the show were a variety of original songs as well.

I have been wanting to see Addams perform for some time now. Being a fan of the fiddle, I have been interested in seeing his show since first hearing about him about a year ago. I will say, it was worth the wait, Addams has mad skills on the fiddle, hence his nickname the Mad Fiddler. When I first met Lott, it was many moons ago, when he was jamming with his other band project, Big Drink Music Company. Both music projects are great fun and worth checking out. The players are professional and fun and the music is familiar and rocking!

Second Helping Does Sound Check in the Rain and Closes out the ENC Food, Brews and BBQ

Upon leaving the Crystal Coast, I headed North and West and found my way to Kinston to check out the last leg of the ENC Food, Brews and QUE Festival which took place at Pearsons Park in Downtown Kinston, NC

Offering the music for the event were several familiar local acts. Opening the day was TrainWreck, who funked up the morning. New Bern’s Country crooner, Bryan Mayer rocked the stage next. The Wicked Shimmies are a Kinston based band, that offered the third fun set of rock and cool grooves. Closing out the day was the Lenoir based tribute band Second Helping, who is nationally known as the longest-running tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Of course, I showed up just in time to hear them do the sound check in the rain. Following a brief shower, they worked out all of the kinks and the band shut down the event with the Southern Rock favorites that fans love. Though the band is local, they perform mostly out-of-state. They have one more event on the calendar that is in our area.

43237899_742036129482748_4536668281389449216_n.jpg

You can take a pause for the cause and rock with the band at Fall Ball 19, taking place on Saturday, November 10, 2018. The Fall Ball is a fundraiser to benefit Edgewood Community School. The Fundraiser will kick off with the third annual wing and pig cook-off. There will be seven bands on the bill and all the good times you would like to have. This is a BYOB event, so pack your coolers and mark your calendars. Campers, RVs, and tents are welcome. The address for the Fall Ball is 750 Racetrack Rd., La Grange NC. The event starts at 11 am and runs until 10 pm.

Adam Hill Returns to The Brown Pelican

This past year, Second Helping hit the road with another area band. The Adam Hill Band joined them on several shows this past Summer. This offered Hill an opportunity to perform on bigger stages and in new areas.

Speaking of the Adam Hill Band, they were in New Bern last weekend, so following all of the festival fun, I headed back to town. On Saturday, the band returned to the Dirty Bird, aka The Brown Pelican, 411 Broad St., New Bern, NC. It was the first time the trio played there this year. It was a fun night rocking with the Lenoir County-based rock outfit.

This weekend they will be playing a private party. In the days ahead, the band will be busy rocking some big stages. Next Friday the band will be rocking Wilmington, when they perform at Bourbon St. S Front St., Wilmington, NC. Music plays from 9 pm till 1 am.  On Saturday, November 3, they will be rocking Wish You Were Beer Tavern, Goldsboro, offering music from 9 pm till midnight. The following week they will be on the road and rocking them in Clayton on Friday, November 9 and in Raleigh on Saturday, November 10, 2018. Sharing the stage both nights with other great rocking acts. Please see details below!

This hometown artist is a class act with grace and talent when on stage. Besides offering any number of classic and modern-day country songs, he offers tales of his time on stage with many of the artist’s he covers. Beyond all country favorites, the tall New Bern native has some blues in his soul and he can rock you some too!

Strung Together Makes For A #NewBernStrong MumFest Finish

Closing out the weekend-long festival on the Miller-Lite Stage was New Bern’s own Family Band, Strung Together, featuring the Oliver Family. This was the perfect end to a healing weekend for our beloved little town that was so fractured by Florence. Not only did it devastated the downtown waterfront area, but it also took out businesses and historic homes alike. One of the homes she tried to wash away is Oliver’s home on E Front Street.

I found it to be mindful and moving to see this band closing out a great weekend of solid repair, following so many weeks of despair for everyone.

This family band is unique in they are mostly related and offer a great mix of genres by way of a host of instruments. They offer everything from pop, jazz standards, folk songs, country and bluegrass selections mixed in with their own songs. As the family rebuilds their home, they will keep busy with music and let the healing happen as they play for the fun of making music and memories.

Coming up next month they have a couple of great community shows. On Saturday, November 3, 2018, they will be AMPED UP at Jaycee Park in Morehead City and rocking the stage from 2-3 pm On Sunday, November 4, 2018; they will be back in town and taking part in Merci On Middle St. That performance is scheduled for 5:30 pm.

The BiPolar Express Rolls to the Beach to Rock

The New Bern born 80-90’s hair band, rock cover kings, The BiPolar Express took flight last weekend to rock fans at the Crystal Coast. They offered several solid sets of rock favorites to the crowd which gathered at The E-Club, located at 8102 Emerald Drive, Emerald Isle, NC.

A few days following the show, it was announced that the good times would continue for The BiPolar Express and their loyal passengers. 2019 is officially open for booking. Though the band considered winding down on dates and regrouping and revamping the set list, things changed after Florence flooded the rehearsal space where they once gathered. I would think more rock is just what the doctor would prescribe, so mark these dates on your calendar and make plans to climb aboard this rockin’ express!

On Saturday, October 27 they will be rocking Blackbeard’s Triple Play, 415 S Front St., New Bern, on November 10, taking part in rocking Homeless Veterans Benefit @ Farmer’s Market in New Bern NC and on Dec 21 they will return to The E Club in Emerald Isle, NC.

Second Helping Rocks Kinston, NC

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

At the start of the month, I was invited to The Red Room to check out the longest running Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Act on the scene, Second Helping. Though the band is locally based with most of the members being Lenoir County residents, they spend most of their time touring the country offering the songs made famous by one of the best-known bands in Southern Rock history.

This ten piece band is quite an act for any sound company to manage. With Three guitars, three harmony vocals, a bass guitar, drums, keyboard/piano, and one lead vocalist, this band is no small operation. Most impressive, once everything is plugged into the right channel of the board, they always provide an awesome tribute to the band with a great legacy in music history, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

To get to know the band better, visit their website at

Second Helping

For those interested in rocking with the band, you are invited to join them this afternoon at Pearsons Park, when they close out the ENC Brews n QUE event in Downtown Kinston, NC. They take the stage at 5:30 pm to deliver the closing set of the event which opens today at 11 am with Train Wreck opening up the day. Bryan Mayer offers the second set at 1 pm and the Wicked Shimmies hit at 3 pm to offer the third performance on the day.

All funds raised will go to the Carteret County Public School Foundation, which will directly help the 620 students and 64 teachers who were displaced by the hurricane.

LOCATION
Gallant’s Channel is obviously not the actual channel but the grassy area with the dock next to the new Beaufort Bridge. Turn at the Bonehenge sign.
