Do-It-Yourself is not a new idea to the family of Jacob Furr. His history is one of work that sweats through blue collars and hardens hands, and his songs are a precise art that expose personal struggles and triumphs of love. Each song is an honest telling of story or emotion, careful to maintain integrity of structure and usefulness of line.
09/16/16 SAD DADDY RECORD RELEASE SHOW Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://www.saddaddyband.com

Sad Daddy began as the meeting of three musical minds — Brian Martin (guitar), Melissa Carper (bass), and Joe Sundell (banjo). The dynamic songwriting of the original three members carried the group’s 2010 self-titled release and won them a loyal following in and around the great state of Arkansas. However, with Carper and Sundell residing in Austin, TX and Martin far away in Ozark country the group’s opportunities for collaboration and performance were few and far between. Now with the original members all back in Arkansas as well as the addition of standout fidller Rebecca Patek, Sad Daddy is embarking on the next chapter of their musical journey, with a follow up album in the works and a full schedule of tour dates to go with. While Sad Daddy’s musicianship and stagecraft are worthy of mention, the songwriting of Martin, Carper, and Sundell, remains the cornerstone of the group’s allure and allows them to connect with a wide range of audiences.

With instrumental abilities that made him a key member of Dwight Yoakam’s band, a voice reminiscent of Jackson Browne and a Top 10 lyrical streak that makes him seem like he’s been writing hook-laden hits for years – Brian Whelan is poised to attract a much wider audience with the release of his second solo album Sugarland.

Whelan, who majored in music at USC, plays almost anything with keys or strings — steel guitar, accordion, piano. On Sugarland, he truly puts his skills to the test, playing just about every musical instrument possible on these crisp, clean, streamlined, mostly mid-tempo pop rock tunes that go straight to the heart with a sonic sense that recalls the heyday of great radio.

Co-Produced by fellow Yoakamite, drummer Mitch Marine, alongside bassist Lee Pardini, Sugarland boldly throws Whelan’s hat into a ring crowded with the likes of John Fullbright, Sturgill Simpson, Mike Stinson, and Jason Isbell. His jangling, straight-ahead tunes like “Sugarland”, “Talk To Me” and “We Got It All,” serve notice, right out of the box, that Whelan’s grown as a songwriter, arranger, and vocalist.


The Salty Dogs are a four piece band that enjoys playing and recording original country music. The Little Rock based band has released 3 full-length studio albums including their current EP – Too old to fight. The band was formed in 2003 and was named the “Best Original Band in Arkansas” by the Arkansas Times. Since then, the band has played countless shows sharing the stage with such likes of Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Jr., Old Crow Medicine Show, Billy Joe Shaver, Robert Earl Keen, The Gourds, Pete Anderson, David Rawlings, Kinky Friedman, Junior Brown, Kelly Willis and many more.

Okey Dokey (9/16) is the latest full-length from Nashville, TN’s Natural Child. The band’s first new music in two years is also the debut release on their new label, Natural Child Records and Tapes. Natural Child started recording the album in Memphis and completed it in Chicago, where they worked alongside Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas).

Let’s get a few things about Natural Child out of the way: they’re not retro, not the bastard sons of Lynyrd Skynyrd or ZZ Top, not barnstormers or foot stompers or country-fried bumpkins sharing their latest “stew.” To some they are saviors, to others they’re the soundtrack to countless substance- fueled nights. To themselves, they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band, chugging along, in every sense of the word.

With Okey Dokey, Natural Child says come on in – give us your tired, your weak, your poor; give us your rockers and rollers and grimy punks and suburban cowboys. Get down how you wanna get down.

“Okey Dokey is a stellar record that’ll make ya wanna sway, scream, serenade and stumble.” – Aquarium Drunkard

Born in Seattle in 1998 at the tender age of intent, Unwed Sailor is helmed by Oklahoma-born songwriter Johnathon Ford. The basis for the instrumental project came into being while Ford was still writing with Seattle luminaries Roadside Monument. Pulling towards a bass guitar-oriented sound, the songs he had begun to craft did not fully feel right for Roadside Monument, thus the unbeknownst predestined forming of Unwed Sailor. Not aiming for Unwed Sailor to fall into the regular confines of a typical band, Ford’s ever evolving cast and crew has been tirelessly composed over the years of good friends and company. Throughout the past decade, Unwed Sailor has shared the stage with the likes of Pedro the Lion, Mary Timony, Low, The Danielson Famile, Sufjan Stevens, Early Day Miners, Minus the Bear, The Advantage, The Starlight Mints, Battles, Mates of State, and Beach House(just to name a few….). The band has since been relocated and based out of cities across the United States, including Chicago, Seattle, Washington D.C., Jackson MS, Little Rock, AR, and most recently Lawrence, KS. With numerous tours in the U.S. and Europe, the band has traveled almost as much as it has evolve

“I’m one of Dale’s biggest fans”
– Willie Nelson

Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, latest album Call Me Insane, was recorded in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines (Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, etc.). The Austin-based honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music.

Album highlights include “Jonesin’ For Jones,” a love song to the music of the legendary George Jones, “A Day At A Time,” about “getting by by barely getting by;” “Call Me Insane,” the album’s moody title track; “Bug Ya For Love,” a fun warning to all the single ladies, and “Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies.” (Yes, it is an answer song to the Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson hit.) “Crocodile Tears” is a tear-in-your-beer country song that sounds like an instant classic and “Burden Of The Cross” reveals Watson’s serious side.

Call Me Insane was recorded in Austin by Watson and his ace touring band, “His Lone Stars”: Don Pawlak (pedal steel), Mike Bernal (drums & percussion), and Chris Crepps (upright bass & background vocals). Dale plays electric guitar throughout and Lloyd Maines added acoustic guitar. They were joined in the studio by Danny Levin on piano and the Honky Tonk Horns: Jon Blondell (trombone), Joey Colarusso (saxophone), and Ricky White (trumpet).

“Having known Lloyd over 20 years and worked with him as a musician, I knew he was a great guy and picker,” Watson says. “But having Lloyd produce your record is like letting your mom in your kitchen. You know you’re gonna like what comes out and it’s amazing how such basic ingredients can be made even better. He is an artists’ artist.

The admiration is mutual. “I’ve been a Dale Watson fan since I played steel guitar on some of his early records,” Maines says of the sessions. “My early musical influences are the same as Dale’s. We both grew up playing real country music. Dale is one of a very short list of today’s artists who still keeps it real country. I’m honored that he asked me to produce his new record. I think he knew that I would maintain the integrity of his passion for the music.”

Dubbed “the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin’, Lone Star beer drinkin’, honky-tonk hellraiser” by The Austin Chronicle, Watson sat in with Jimmy Kimmel’s house band as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) from SXSW 2015. He also emceed the first ever SXSW “Ameripolitan” showcase featuring the best of Honky-tonk, Outlaw Country, Rockabilly and Texas Swing music.

Since the release of El Rancho Azul in 2013, Watson’s profile has risen considerably via appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman (CBS), Austin City Limits and The Sun Sessions(PBS) and as a guest on NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. A veteran touring artist and consummate entertainer, he is on the road more than 300 days a year. He also put his money where his heart is and took over ownership of two struggling Texas honky-tonks, the Little Longhorn Saloon in Austin (home of Chicken $#!+ Bingo) and The Big T Roadhouse in St. Hedwigs (outside San Antonio). If not on the road, he and His Lone Stars perform at one of them each Sunday. Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades. He’s christened his brand of American roots “Ameripolitan” to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country. The Alabama-born, Texas-raised Watson may be the hardest working entertainer today and is rapidly approaching legendary status. He is a country music maverick, a true outlaw who stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State.

The guitars crunch, but they’re spry more so than heavy. The lyrics are lighthearted but by no means frivolous. The songs feel very much like country songs at heart, even if they sometimes sound like country songs with their fingers in the wall socket. Welcome to Kevin Kerby’s Mulehead, a thrilling Little Rock, Arkansas, cowpunk quartet that resides in a world where Jesus lives above the liquor store. Kerby’s conflicted lyrics seem suspicious (but not dismissive) of Christianity, although if he truly felt jaded, perhaps he wouldn’t sing about religion in so many of his songs. “I’ve heard it said the gospel call will come to you in slumber / I was at the bar, you know, and they didn’t leave a number,” he sings in “Out Here in the Pines.” On “Glad to Be Here,” he explains, “I read the Bible cover to cover / It don’t say nothin’ about a girl like you.” “Pilate” is your classic country shuffle from the point of view of a misunderstood outlaw: “Well, my name is Pilate and I have your king / I wash my hands to the whole damn thing / What could I do, I’m just one man / Why I’m in hell, I don’t understand.” You don’t know whether to say “amen” or “another round,” but you get the sense that either is acceptable. –Marc Greilsamer


Christy Hays’ two recent EPs, “O’ Montana” and “Caliche,” reflect both the singer- songwriter’s complicated, dual nature and the sounds of the many places she’s called home.

“O’ Montana” is a gorgeous folk- and country-flavored solo collection and a natural progression from Hays’ 2012 album “Drought.”

“Caliche,” on the other hand, is a band effort that indulges Hays’ occasional desire to plug-in and rock out. The result is an Americana rock and roll record with an occasional psychedelic flourish. Hays’ band, also called Caliche, came together after she met and formed a years-long partnership with the talented Lauren Gurgiolo of the Octopus Project (and a former guitarist with Okkervil River). Bassist Geena Spigarelli and drummer Andrew Gerfers bolster Caliche’s sound.

Cindy Woolf and Mark Bilyeu have been playing together for twelve years, and have been married for the last two of them. Their collaboration began when Bilyeu produced and played on Woolf’s 2005 debut CD, “Simple and Few.” He was also at the helm for Woolf’s third and most recent album, 2013’s “May.” Although they have been playing and recording together for more than a decade, Wolf Hunter marks their first recorded output as a musical duo. It will also serve as Bilyeu’s first release since Big Smith’s final album, “Kin,” released in 2011. Bilyeu was a founding member of the popular Ozarks family band, which was active from 1996 to 2012.


Betse & Clarke explore their love of old time music with an inventive spirit, taking listeners on a field trip across mountain folkways and new landscapes. Their music is familiar… and totally different; a fiddle and banjo duo with a sense of adventure, radiating outward from Kansas City, Missouri.

Betse Ellis plays fiddle and sings like nobody’s business. Her years with The Wilders proved her passion for Ozark tunes and an unstoppable stage presence. Her early violin studies continue to shape her musicianship through technique and composition.

Clarke Wyatt has an original and creative approach to three-finger banjo. His background as a pianist and composer inform his banjo method as much as his love for old time music.

Together, Betse & Clarke give every listener something to appreciate. They perform traditional tunes learned from cherished sources, creative arrangements of familiar and forgotten songs, and original compositions. You can expect to hear something new that preserves the spirit of tradition.

On a hot July night in 1999, five grown men dressed as old ladies crossed 11th St in San Francisco and hit the stage at the Paradise Lounge. 15 years, 8 Jack Endino produced albums, 3 European tours, more than a few beer soaked house dresses, some delighted fans, some not-so delighted soundmen, an 8’ x5’ oil painting by German artist Frank Bauer (that sold in Cologne for $25,000), some good press, some bad press, and these self-acclaimed masters of Quality Edutainment are STILL at it. Still. Featuring former members of Ain’t(SF), Black Furies(SF), Hollow Heyday(Boston) and Hullabaloo(Boston). Mixing the frantic three chord riff rock of G.B.H. with the in-your-face danger of the Dwarves and the fashion sense of Divine, THE GRANNIES have released all their albums on their own labels, Dead Teenager & Wondertaker. Wildly original and fun as hell.


The Upper Crust is an American hard rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. The members adopt the personae of 18th century aristocratic fops and sing songs from that perspective. They use titles of nobility, wear powdered wigs and period costumes, and maintain a snobbish attitude both during live performance and on their albums. The members say that their guiding philosophy is “if not great and excellent, then debauched.” Their major music influence is Bon Scott-era AC/DC, along with glam rock band Kiss and fictional heavy metal band Spinal Tap. Rolling Stone wrote, “[d]ismiss Boston’s Upper Crust as a joke rock band if you must, but give them this much: they’re actually funny, and there’s as much rock as mock to their singular brand of ‘roque’”, adding “there’s plenty of worthy riffs and double-entendre wit to go around”. The group originated from a Boston surf rock band called ‘The Clamdiggers’. Other related bands were The Bags, The Titanics, The Satanics, The Flies, The Oysters and Seks Bomba.


10/07/16 THE PETERSON BROTHERS Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: $7. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://www.petersonbrothersband.com

Come party with the Peterson Brothers! Alex, 17, on bass, violin and vocals; and Glenn Jr., 19, on guitar, percussion and lead vocals, are brothers who possess their own uniquely modern blend of blues, soul, and funk.

It all began six years ago when Pat Morgan, manager of the late Pinetop Perkins, gave Glenn and Alex Peterson their first opportunity to play onstage with the legendary bluesman. At the time they were only 13 and 11, and it was immediately apparent that these two very talented musicians were meant to write and play music, and to continue to “pass the pick” around the world. In the years since, they have opened for Gary Clark Jr., the late B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys and Lisa Marie Presley. They have also played with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks and some of Austin’s finest musicians. The Peterson Brothers have also gained the attention of the one and only Bootsy Collins, who has become a true mentor.

Glenn and Alex are honing their chops daily, and are dazzling audiences wide and far including playing gigs in New York City, Maine, Nantucket, Vermont, Idaho, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Arkansas, and of course all over their home state of Texas, where they hold down a “standing room only” weekly Monday residency at Austin’s famed music hall The Continental Club.

“The Peterson Brothers Band are the new rising stars on the Austin music scene.” – Examiner.com

“The only thing missing from the Peterson Brothers Band is the word “amazing” at the front of the name.” – San Antonio Express-News

10/21/16 THE CEDRIC BURNSIDE PROJECT Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: $10. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://cedricburnside.net

Born and raised around Holly Springs, Mississippi, Cedric Burnside, grandson of legendary R.L. Burnside and son of drummer Calvin Jackson, has been playing music all his life. He has developed a relentless, highly rhythmic charged style that takes the blues to another level. This four-time winner of the prestigious Blues Music Award’s Drummer of the Year (2010-2014) is widely regarded as one of the best drummers in the world and has begun to make a name for himself as a traditional blues guitarist, as well.

Growing up at his grandfather’s side, he began touring at age 13 playing drums for “Big Daddy” on stages around the globe. “I write about my life, my kids, and everyday things. I try to stick to the truth,” Cedric says. He recalls growing up without a radio or a TV. “My granddad used to play out on the porch, and we’d have house parties every weekend. Johnny Woods would come over and blow harmonica, and he’d drink two or three gallons of corn liquor. We just stomped up dirt.”

In addition to “Big Daddy,” Cedric has also played and recorded with countless musicians, including, Junior Kimbrough, Kenny Brown, North Mississippi Allstars, Burnside Exploration, Widespread Panic, Jimmy Buffett, T Model Ford, Bobby Rush, Honey Boy Edwards, Hubert Sumlin, Galactic, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, among many others. In 2006, he was featured in Craig Brewer’s critically acclaimed feature film Black Snake Moan, playing drums alongside Samuel L. Jackson. (The film is a loose tribute to R.L. Burnside, and gives many nods to the late bluesman.)

In 2010, Cedric collaborated with his younger brother, Cody Burnside, and his uncle, Garry Burnside, to create The Cedric Burnside Project. They endeavored to keep the love and admiration for Mississippi Hill Country Blues alive by honoring the past while blazing a path towards the future. The Cedric Burnside Project has brought new life and energy to the blues and it’s no wonder why it’s loved by fans around the world.

Following the untimely and tragic death of his brother Cody, Cedric has kept the flame burning, recording and touring the world with guitarist and lifelong friend Trenton Ayers.

Cedric Burnside Project’s latest album, Descendants of Hill Country, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Blues Album of the Year.


TRENTON AYERS: GUITAR, BASS, VOX Trenton Ayers, son of guitarist Earl “Little Joe” Ayers (Junior Kimbrough) grew up in North Mississippi, where he is known for his deep knowledge of the blues and virtuoso skills on both the guitar and the bass.

He plays in many genres, from blues, soul and Jazz to R&B, funk and fusion. Trenton respects the roots yet always keeps it fresh, new and exciting. After years of playing with legendary local acts in The Hill Country, he joins his childhood friend Cedric on his mission to bring the North Mississippi sound to the world.

Dikki Du (Troy Carrier) was born in 1969 in Church Point, Louisiana and discovered his love for zydeco music at the tender age of nine. After school he would get together with his brother Chubby, sister Elaine and father Roy to play Zydeco music.

Troy played the washboard for Roy Carrier, his father, on local gigs; he then joined forces with the great C.J. Chenier for two years. Troy’s brother Chubby Carrier then started a family band and offered Troy a job playing the drums. Troy toured with his brother from the late 80’s until the 90’s, when he returned home to pick up the accordion. It has now been twelve years that Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe have been on the scene. Dikki Du has incorporated his musical heritage with unique experience to create one of the most innovative zydeco groups around. The krewe captures an audience with one of the best sets around. His original funky and hypnotic zydeco style announces that he has arrived, occupying a spot on par with the best. “Personally the triple row is the sound that I like the best”. says Dikki Du. He takes songs from classic zydeco and turns the inside out with fresh and funky renditions driving it to the next level. The krewe’s innovations revitalize zydeco charging it for years to come.
