Happy Hour with Joe Beard & Miller and The Other Sinners
Record Archive – Join us for a thursday night Happy Hour featuring Joe Beard with Miller and The Other Sinners! Born and raised in Ashland, MS, guitarist Joe Beard grew up with the Murphy brothers, one of whom later found an international following as Matt "Guitar" Murphy. Guitarist Nathan Beauregard lived with Beard's cousin, so he was surrounded by aspiring and veteran blues musicians while growing up, and he began singing at an early age. Beard became interested in playing guitar via the Murphy brothers, who sat in with a young B.B. King when he played at the Roosevelt Lake Club. Beard began to learn guitar at age 17 from Ernest Scruggs, a neighbor, before heading to Chicago. Beard moved to Rochester, NY, and from time to time would visit one of his brothers in Chicago. He quickly became enamored of the blues being played in clubs there by people like Jimmy Reed and Sonny Boy Williamson. Beard sat in with John Lee Hooker one night and received encouraging words from Hooker, and also later sat in with his idol, Muddy Waters. While in Rochester, he formed the Soul Brothers Six, playing bass and singing, but he didn't perform in public on guitar until 1965. Beard befriended classic blues guitarist Son House, who was a neighbor in Rochester, and played a concert for students at the University of Rochester in 1968. Beard worked as an electrician by day and would occasionally play out at night and on weekends for most of the '60s on through to the '80s. He has a reputation as one of the best local players around, and though he may not be a household name in other parts of the U.S., he toured Europe in 1983 and did studio and stage work with Buster Benton, Lafayette Leake, and Memphis Slim. At the famed BK Lounge, Beard and his backing bands opened for Bobby Bland, Albert King, and others. More recently, Beard performed at President George H.W. Bush's inaugural gala. In 1990, he recorded an album for Kingsnake Records, No More Cherry Rose, which was well received by the blues radio community. Blues UnionBeard recorded an album with Ronnie Earl's band for the California-based AudioQuest label, Blues Union (1996). Accompanying him are Hammond B-3 organist Bruce Katz and tenor saxophonist David "Fathead" Newman. The album was a critical success, winning Offbeat Magazine's Blues Album of the Year award. He followed it up with 1998's For Real and 2000's Dealin', both records featuring Duke Robillard.

Art Show - Emoore
Tap and Mallet – A new look for the bar room is almost upon us. Stop by and see for yourself. We will providing complimentry finger food. Here is a statement from the artist, Emoore: I got my start in the arts as a delinquent graffiti artist that opened the door to dive into fine arts on my own terms while still preserving the emotion and feel of outsider art. These new batch of paintings are inspired by traveling the country by hitchhiking and hopping trains and soaking in the sights and feel of it all while referencing film photographs taken along the way and memories engraved on my brain. The paintings have an impressionistic feel and are rounded out with some abstract expressionist paintings that subtly pay homage to my graffiti roots.

Sophistafunk w/s/g Backup Planet
Funk 'n Waffles Music Hall – $10 / Age 18 And Up / $15 Day of Show Backup Planet: It's not just artistic anesthetization either, but rather a galvanizing force that inspires us to keep pushing through life's trials and tribulations. That's why we still listen to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rush, and countless others all these years later. It's the same reason audiences will be talking about Backup Planet's second full-length album, Reactions, for a long time to come. The Nashville, TN quartet-Ben Cooper [keys, vocals], Chris Potocik [drums, vocals], Gavin Donati [guitar, vocals], and Blake Gallant [bass, vocals]-write arena-size anthems echoing with progressive intricacy, funk swagger, and even a little metallic edge. Giving listeners an inspiring and invigorating aural haven, their moniker couldn't be more apropos Tickets: http://www.ticketweb.com/fb/7513715/funknwaffles
