Eric Erdman Private Album Release Show!
The Listening Room of Mobile – Tickets available only through https://ericerdmanmusic.com/ *Doors open at 7. Show starts at 8.* Join us for the VIP Private Release Show for Eric's album. It will be the VIP Private Release Show - two days prior to the public release. The show will be a full band show. Each ticket will include a signed copy of the CD and a signed poster (limited edition specifically for the VIP show). The ticket also includes admission to the public show (which will be Jan 19 at Cedar Street Social Club) . ----------------------------- 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

An Intimate Evening with Dan Navarro
The Listening Room of Mobile – Tickets: $20 (Call 251-367-4599 to reserve) Dan’s career began as a songwriter, most often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the Grammy-nominated “We Belong”) , The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, Dutch superstar Marco Borsato, The Triplets, and Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir. In the 1990s, he recorded and toured with Lowen in the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan has transitioned smoothly into a growing solo career, steadily in demand on the national concert circuit. He moonlights as a singer and voice actor in motion pictures like The Book Of Life (as the villain “Chakal”), The Lorax, Happy Feet (1 & 2), Rio (on the Oscar-nominated “Real In Rio”), Ice Age (2 & 3) ; TV series Turbo Fast, Prison Break, Family Guy and American Dad; records with Neil Young, Andrea Bocelli, Luis Miguel, Jose Feliciano, Janiva Magness, Susanna Hoffs and Jon Anderson of Yes; the hit videogames Fallout 4 and Uncharted 4, and hundreds of TV ads for Subaru, Shakey’s, McDonald’s, Toyota, Coca-Cola, Honda, Nationwide and more. He has contributed countless hours in Washington on issues of intellectual property, copyright and performer’s rights, including testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Copyright Royalty Board, on behalf of numerous music and the Nashville Songwriters Assn Int’l, the former AFTRA, NARAS, BMI , SoundExchange and the musicFIRST Coalition. Dan also serves on the boards of SAG-AFTRA, Folk Alliance, The Levitt Pavilions LA and the Golden West Chapter of the ALS Association, fighting the neuro-muscular disease better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which took Eric Lowen’s life in 2012. In 2009, after 22 years and 12 albums with Lowen & Navarro, Dan released the spirited Live at McCabe’s, backed by his pals, Austin’s now-disbanded Stonehoney.

An Intimate Evening with the Chip Herrington Jazz Quintet
The Listening Room of Mobile – Tickets: $20 (Call 251-367-4599 to reserve) When Chip Herrington was 7 years old, he found an old cornet and beginner band book in the attic of his home in Columbia, Mississippi. By the end of the day he had taught himself the C scale and could play the several songs from the book. He's been playing ever since. Chip is best known as the Trumpet player for Wet Willie (Hurricane Horns) and as Band Leader of The Mobile Big Band Society, but he's performed with familiar artists such as Aretha Franklin and Lou Rawls. He is also a regular studio player being heard on recordings by Eric Eardman, Donna Hall, Tom Riepl and others. Listening Room regulars will recognize him as the sometimes sideman to Lisa Mills on "Sexy Muted Trumpet." His latest efforts have focused on bringing more authentic jazz to the area. The Chip Herrington jazz quintet is an ensemble which promises to deliver something which has become very rare, real acoustic jazz in traditional club setting -- "lounge jazz," if you will. Real jazz and The Listening Room ... a perfect match! Photo by Michelle Stancil
