West King String Band *Free Show
The Merry Widow – Come early and enjoy happy hour pricing from 5pm-7pm(half off craft cocktials, draft, and premium liquor). BIO Cultivated on the porches and back yards across the tracks on West King Street in St. Augustine, Florida, the West King String Band's sound is rooted in studious interpretations of traditional bluegrass, mastered by the likes of The Del McCoury Band, Bill Monroe, and Old & In the Way combined with the energy and drive of their rock and roll idols, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, even Black Sabbath to name a few. While developing their sound as a unit, the band began to focus on songwriting. The outfit has since taken their manic, upbeat riffs on the road and have embarked on several national tours and recorded multiple EP's. Their first full length album, "Achin'" (released in August of 2016) captivates their original sound and features both foot stomping songs full of energy and technique as well as slow bluesy grooves accompanied by lyrics dripping with sarcastic sadness and discrete humor. Their next full length album is currently in the works and will be recorded August 2017 in Nashville. You can catch WKSB on the road shaking bones in a town near you. West King String Band is: Jack Studer - Guitar Jesse Harman - Upright Bass Andrew Fox - Mandolin

An Intimate Evening with Eric Erdman on August 24th!
The Listening Room of Mobile – Tickets: $15 (Call 251-367-4599 to reserve) Eric Erdman is a storyteller with a life that gives him stories to write songs about. His guitar takes him around the world and he can write four songs from one break up. His lyrics are introspective but fun, quirky but accessible, profound and palatable, and they draw listeners in like old friends. With a voice that sounds like JJ Grey and James Taylor, Eric’s career began as the lead singer of the funk rock band, The Ugli Stick. They released four albums, toured the country, and performed on three USO tours. In 2012, Erdman recorded his fist solo album, My Brother’s Keepers, that showed his true essence as a songwriter and performer. He followed that up with Color the Silence, recorded in Australia. A successful Kickstarter campaign funded his new album, Not Slowing Down, that was recorded in Muscle Shoals with eclectic songs that are a mix of 70’s funk, pop rock ballads, and a reggae murder mystery. “To me, being a true artist is being a tracker. You hunt for that next spark that electrifies or inspires you and then you genuinely listen to see where it is going. I wouldn't say it is leading you per se, but it will tell you where it is headed. It is then up to you to catch up.... So I search for those sparks every day, in every situation...whether it be serious, sad, happy, or funky. And when I find one that lights me up....the chase is on. It is this chase that keeps me from slowing down.” To find out more about Eric Erdman, visit: http://www.ericerdmanmusic.com
