The Candymakers wsg The Maytags & Blue Mud | Redstone Room
River Music Experience – THE CANDYMAKERS WITH THE MAYTAGS & BLUE MUD Friday, March 30, 2018 9:00 PM Redstone Room $10 adv / $12 dos Doors: 8pm / Show: 9pm Opening Act: Blue Mud Age Restriction: 19+ (minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian) Web: http://www.thecandymakers.com/ http://www.themaytags.com/ Genre: Rock n' Soul The Candymakers The Candymakers are a Rock N' Soul band with the traditions of old-school R&B and,funk. This young band offers a sound that is contemporary, yet keeps the essence of music past. Though the band is known for its soulful male vocalist, it is anchored by the collaborative genius of its blues driven guitarist, gospel influenced female back-up vocals and funky rhythm section. Often joined by a rotating cast of horn players, the band can be seen with up to 12 members on stage. After forming in 2010, they were awarded 1st place in the 2011 Iowa Blues Challenge. After reaching the semi-finals in both The International Blues Challenge and The Kings of Beale Street Competition, they returned home to release their debut album in February of 2012. Their second studio effort "Ridiculicious" was released in September of 2014. The band has spent the last two years touring regionally around the midwest. The Maytags GAINING IN POPULARITY OVER THE YEARS, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE RELEASE OF THEIR NEWEST ALBUM, THE MAYTAGS HAVE DRAWN ATTENTION FROM MANY AND RECEIVED COUNTLESS OUTSTANDING REVIEWS. Juice Magazine commented “Fast-forward to a year later and it’s clear that that band is just wildly talented, not a wild card.” Another review, from VICE, stated “The Maytags’ music swings. It differs from all of the Des Moines’ other retro offerings by its sheer vibrancy—there’s just warmth lining every note.” These phrases are specific to the cultural geography of the singer, guitarist, and songwriter’s Des Moines, Iowa hometown, a music and arts community with a rising national profile highlighted by praise from the Talking Heads’ David Byrne and glowing explorations from Politico and TheAtlantic. But Smith’s words also help evoke the Maytags’ journey to this sultry nine-song set, one that also runs through Smith’s time in New York — where studied jazz as a drummer — and the band’s recording sessions in Tennessee. Other band members have roots in St. Louis; all studied jazz, mainly in central and northern Iowa. If there can be a New South, then there can be a sound that’s Midwest Nouveau. Love Lines smolders with the intensity of a relationship that just ended — “both the good and the bad,” Smith says. Recorded at Nashville’s the Bomb Shelter with Andrija Tokic, who has also recorded Benjamin Booker and Alabama Shakes, the album sees Smith achieving a bit of the latter band’s gut-busting, almost-preternatural howling on cathartic opener “Pushing Up Rivers.” A three-part “Suite for Green Eyes,” written as a whole by Smith and Tim Sanders (sax), inhabits the aftermath of a breakup: bittersweet acceptance, tempestuous reflection, and the lustful confusion of running into an ex once it’s all over: “Fourth of July we’ll be holding hands,” Smith belts out on “Street Clothes,” knowing full well he’ll likely be watching the fireworks with somebody else. As much as Love Lines is born out of a breakup, it’s also an artifact of a seven-piece band that has been honing its chops on the road. “Musically we worked our asses off on this,” Smith says. “Me and Tim got together for the initial writing sessions and really tried to draw a lot of inspiration from the Daptone crew, Stax, Al Green. Just to name a few.” The songs were then taken to the band and arranged as a unit, with each member having creative input on each song. The Maytags then tracked the whole album to 2 inch tape in less than 30 hours.” That follows December 2014’s Nova EP, recorded at the same studio and tracked to 2 inch tape in 19 hours. As Love Lines ends, with the rhythmically and emotionally tricky “Problems,” Smith’s weary purr fades away: “Someone call the doctor, the doctor, the doc-doc-doc...” The cure is already there, in a balmy sound that must’ve blown in from some fantastical Iowa coast: a flyover that flew away and returned wiser for the voyage. *Seating Disclaimer* The Redstone Room at River Music Experience is a standing room only concert venue.

Anthony Gomes | Redstone Room
River Music Experience – $12 adv / $15 day of show Doors: 7pm / Show: 8pm Opening Act: TBA Age Restriction: 19+ (minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian) Web: www.anthonygomes.com/ Genre: Blues Rock All tickets are general admission. Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a seat. "A very talented guitarist... and where did that voice come from?" - B.B. King "One of the Top Ten Guitarists in the World" - Music Taster's Choice Anthony Gomes, #1 Billboard Blues Artist, is a triple threat force as a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. This, along with his high-energy shows and dynamic stage presence, make him one of the top draws on the Rock/Blues circuit today. He has been creating virtuosic, burning blues since his recorded debut in 1998. 12 releases and numerous awards and ecstatic accolades later, his latest album, Electric Field Holler, crackles with bare wire passion. The aptly-named, riff-laden Electric Field Holler has received highly acclaimed recognition; reaching #1 on both Roots Music Report's Blues Rock Chart and ReverbNation’s Global Blues Chart, as well as earning several nominations for Blues Rock Album of the Year. He has headlined concerts in 17 countries and has had the honor of sharing the stage with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Joe Bonamassa, Heart, Alice Cooper, Jonny Lang, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Not only has he shared the stage with the likes of B.B. King and Buddy Guy, he also founded the Music is the Medicine Foundation in 2010; a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of others through the healing power of music. Through private donations and grants, the foundation has funded song writing scholarships, offered music education programs, and donated musical instruments to those in need. Without passion there is no music; Anthony Gomes gets it… on so many levels! Anthony, joined by bassist Carlton Armstrong and drummer Freddy Spencer Jr., will be showcasing songs from his latest release as well as performing fan favorites from past albums. Gomes sings and plays with integrity and deeply felt emotion oblivious to fortune and fashion. The resulting music is a blazing cathartic experience radiating therapeutic heat for body and soul. *Seating Disclaimer* The Redstone Room at River Music Experience is a standing room only concert venue.

Adler Theatre – The Prelude Implicit, the new album from KANSAS, is the first new album release in 16 years for the band that has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and is famous for classic hits such as ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and ‘Dust In the Wind,’ to progressive epics like ‘Song for America’ and ‘Miracles Out of Nowhere.’ The result of the time in the studio was even more than the band imagined. “This is definitely a KANSAS album,” remarks original guitarist Richard Williams. “Whether it is the trademark Prog epic like ‘The Voyage of Eight Eighteen,’ biting rocker such as ‘Rhythm in the Spirit,’ or mindful ballad like ‘The Unsung Heroes,’ there is something on this album for every kind of KANSAS fan. After years of pent-up creativity, the entire band is very proud of The Prelude Implicit.”
