Kurtis James Band

Friday September 24

Show: 9:00

Cover: $5

Specializing in country music with a vintage Americana feel, Kurtis James came onto the local music scene in early 2019. A native of central Minnesota, Kurtis comes to Illinois after a stint in the US Navy saw him reside variously in Florida, Virginia, and California.

Influenced by the great country and rockabilly acts of the mid-twentieth century, Kurtis' songwriting is down-to-earth country, with grit, emotion and relatability.

Kurtis has remained extremely active during the pandemic, releasing four singles over the past few months, and performing live wherever possible over the summer. Kurtis has pulled together some serious talent with Pete Steele (drums), Cris Velez (bass), and Rich Becker (pedal steel) for the Kurtis James Band.

Produced by Thirdfire Records’ Joan Velez, Kurtis James' debut album ""Maricopa County Angel"" is scheduled for release in early 2021

Joe Stamm Band

Friday October 15

Show: 9:00

Tickets: $5.00

Joe Stamm Band’s newest country-rock album is as brutally authentic as the Midwestern plains and people that inspire these songs. A year-round working musician, Stamm has become something of an anthropologist of the tiny towns dotting middle America. Thanks to his fondness for this so-called flyover country, and his crew of down-home troubadours, Stamm has created the soundtrack to the heart of America: Midwest Town (release date 9-10-21).

JSB, established in 2013, offers distinct storytelling mixed with a signature Black Dirt Country Rock sound - a sound that Stamm defines as “a nod to our Midwestern roots, as well as the Red Dirt music scene, which has had a big influence on our music.” Fans can expect the fearless Black Dirt Country Rock sound from Dave Glover’s inventive lead guitar, Bruce Moser’s fortifying bass, and Tim Fiers’ heart-pounding drums on the new album.

Cutting his teeth playing in middle-of-nowhere dives, Stamm earned the stage presence and grit it would take to support artists like Chris Knight, Blackberry Smoke, Sunny Sweeney, Tyler Childers, Whiskey Myers, Jamey Johnson, and more. It’s the same blue-collar outlaw spirit from his early days that Stamm brings to any stage and every audience today.

Jeremy Pinnell

Thursday November 11

Show: 9:00

Tickets: $5.00

When Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as, a “Mind-blowingly good” (Greg Vandy/KEXP) “ ”tutorial on classic country music” (Popmatters), Pinnell’s debut immediately differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the States and celebrated radio sessions followed, cementing Pinnell’s position as a no-fuss master of his craft. His 2017 album, Ties of Blood and Affection presented a canny lateral move. Instead of doubling down on the stark themes and values of his debut, the sophomore album found Pinnell finding comfort in his own skin, achieving the redemption only hinted at in his previous batch of haunted songs. If the third time’s a charm, Pinnell is all shine and sparkle on the forthcoming Goodbye LA. Produced by Texan Jonathan Tyler, the tunes buff the wax and polish the chrome on Country music’s deeper roots. Rooted in his steady acoustic guitar, Pinnell’s songs are shot through with honest and classic elements. The rhythm section, all snap and shuffle, finds purpose in well worn paths. The pedal steel and Telecaster stingers arrive perfectly on cue, winking at JP’s world-wise couplets . Here slippery organ insinuates gospel into the conversation. You can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed to tape. And through it all comes this oaken identity, the devastating centerpiece of his work. Honest and careworn, Jeremy’s voice can touch on wry, jubilant, and debauched - all in a single line. At his best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that anyone could do.

Merle, Jones and Strait, and found himself feeling like a string of chords being perfectly strummed by those legendary sounds. That feeling inspired him to pick up a guitar and start singing in the parking lots of rodeo events. The reactions and encouragements he spurred from peers and onlookers led him to form his first band and hit the local honky tonk circuit in 2003. Needing something to sell to the demands of a swelling fan base, he recorded his first EP “Hard Whiskey,” the title track being to this day one of his most requested at live shows. It was in 2012 when Ward truly found his stride with the release of his first full length album “Promises,” produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer, Greg Hunt. It seemed clear that radio had discovered their new banner artist in Ward with all five singles hitting the Top 20 on the Texas Music charts, three of those scoring #1’s -almost unheard of for a debut artist. Ward wrapped up 2013 as the Texas Regional Radio’s New Male Vocalist of the Year.

The Shootouts debut album “Quick Draw” is an effortless blend of high-energy honky-tonk and traditional country music mixed with touches of Americana and western swing.

The combination offers a welcome throwback to sounds that flowed out of Nashville, Texas and California in country music’s golden years.

Composed of lead-singer Ryan Humbert, guitarist Brian Poston, bassist Ryan McDermott, drummer Dylan Gomez, backing vocalist Emily Bates and longtime sideman Al Moss on pedal steel, The Shootouts have shared the stage with a wide range of artists like Sheryl Crow, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Rosie Flores, Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives, Lake Street Dive, Jim Lauderdale, Robbie Fulks, Radney Foster, Zac Brown Band, Soul Asylum, Chris Isaak and more.

“Quick Draw” was recorded in Brooklyn, NY with producers Luca Benedetti and Jim Campilongo (Cake, Norah Jones, The Little Willies.) “We were attracted to the project by the earnest songwriting and strong musicianship,” said Campilongo and Benedetti, “The Shootouts are a hard-working and passionate band, and together we created an album to be proud of.”

Upon release in May of 2019, “Quick Draw” received stellar reviews and world-wide radio play, spending over nine weeks on the “Americana Radio Top 50” album chart as well as reaching the “Alt-Country Radio Top 20” chart.
