James Johan

James Johann

Wednesday, September 24, 2014  8pm
21+ only

James Johann, the "Rural Genius", was born in the Midwest during the 70's era of bell-bottom jeans, wood paneled station wagons and disco music. His childhood upbringing was significantly influenced by country music, countless bad haircuts and heavy doses of Catholic school. In 1991, after being fired from several `McJobs,' James began his standup career in Kansas City. But don't let James' boyish appearance fool you; he's a nineteen year veteran of the stand-up comedy circuit. His self-deprecating sense of humor and high-energy style all come together to create a unique onstage persona. James relies more on his brain than the profane, and his comedy often hits upon the universal theme of failure, and provides a truthful and hilarious reflection of life as he sees it.
James completed the 2003 theatre tour "Paying for the New Trailer" starring Jeff Foxworthy and Larry The Cable Guy. In July 2004 James performed in the New Faces of Comedy at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. James was featured on Comedy Central's Premium Blend which aired in 2005 and performed as part of The Slackers Tour in clubs, casinos and theatres in 2006. In 2007 he appeared on CMT's "Comedy Stage" and "Greatest Redneck Moments II". In late 2008 he was featured comedian on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on CBS.
Besides headlining comedy clubs, James is featured on CMT.com showcasing his "Rural Genius" videos. "Rural Genius" can also be heard regulary on radio stations around the nation, as well as XM/Sirius Satellite radio.

Indigenous

Thursday, September 25, 2014  8pm 
21+show

Indigenous front man, Mato Nanji (Ma-TOE NON-gee), was born and raised on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. Mato’s father, the late Greg Zephier, Sr., was a well-known and highly respected spiritual advisor and spokesperson for the International Indian Treaty Council. In addition to this leadership role, he was an accomplished musician and a member of the musical group, The Vanishing Americans. Formed by Greg and his brothers in the ‘60’s, The Vanishing Americans toured nationally and shared bills with such legends as Bonnie Raitt. Besides being heavily influenced by the music his father and uncles were making, Mato was exposed to Greg’s vast collection of blues records by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King. Consequently, Mato embraced and began utilizing his own musical talent at a young age. With the experience, love and wisdom of their father to guide them, Mato, his brother, sister and cousin formed the band Indigenous while in their late teens.

After much time invested in practicing and building a following, they began touring extensively across the country. In 1998, they released their award winning debut album Things We Do. The title track’s video, directed by Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals), won the American Indian Film Festival Award and was shown at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. Indigenous’ music caught the attention of blues icon B.B. King and the young band was invited to play on his annual B.B. King’s Blues Tour in 1999. Sadly, Mr. Zephier would pass away before seeing his children receive this great honor.

With momentum gaining, Indigenous’ 2000 sophomore release, Circle, was produced and arranged by Stevie Ray Vaughan’s longtime friend and collaborator, the late Doyle Bramhall, Sr. Three more cds; Fistful of Dirt (2002), Indigenous (2003) and Long Way Home (EP, 2005) would follow before the 2006 decision by the siblings to ‘disband’ and pursue their own musical paths. Mato carried on with the Indigenous name. “Playing with my family for 10 years was a lot of fun, but it was time to grow and keep moving forward.”

Lil' Ed & the Blue Imperials

Lil' Ed & the Imperials

Thursday, October 2, 2014  8pm 
21+show

From working at Chicago’s Red Carpet Car Wash to appearing on national television, from gigging at the smallest ghetto blues bars to performing on the biggest international concert stages, master bluesman Lil’ Ed Williams has come a long way. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned Chicago shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil’ Ed and his blistering Blues Imperials – bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton – deliver the blues, from gloriously riotous and rollicking to intensely emotional and moving. Not since the heyday of Hound Dog Taylor & The HouseRockers has a blues band made such a consistently joyful noise. Currently celebrating 24 rip-roaring years together, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge. As much a family as a band, Lil’ Ed, Pookie, Mike and Kelly have outlasted sports stars and presidents, musical fads and fashion trends. And together, they continue to make blues history with each and every performance and new recording.

The band’s wildly energetic and seriously soulful new CD Jump Start is jam-packed with Lil’ Ed’s incendiary slide playing and rough, passionate singing, as the ragged-but-right Blues Imperials cook like mad alongside him. Produced by Williams and Alligator president Bruce Iglauer, it is a tour-de-force of untamed slide guitar, rock solid rhythms, heartrending ballads and authentic deep blues vocals. Williams wrote or co-wrote 13 of the album’s 14 songs, ranging from the non-stop boogie blast of ‘If You Were Mine’ to the heart-on-his-sleeve honesty of ‘Life Is A Journey’ to the bouncing and jazzy ‘Jump Right In’ to the swaggering, autobiographical ‘Musical Mechanical Electrical Man’. The album overflows with the band’s full throttle drive and is fueled by Lil’ Ed’s love of both serious blues and good time fun. Jump Start reveals a band firing on all cylinders and ready to spread the genuine houserockin’ fever to their biggest audience yet. “It’s all blues, really,” says Lil’ Ed. “Some of it will make you dance

JJ Grey & Mofro

Saturday, October 4, 2014  8pm
21+ show

Over the course of six albums and a decade of touring, JJ Grey's grimy blend of front porch soul and down-home storytelling has taken him around the world and back again.
Beating the streets on nearly every continent, he and his band Mofro have sewn a continuous thread of laying-it-on-the-line shows that move folks to dance and at times to tears.
“The best songs I've ever wrote, I never wrote. They wrote themselves. The best show I ever played, played itself and had little to do with me or talent.
To me those things come from the power of an honest moment and I guess I’m trying to live in that power and not force life to cough up what I want. That power is always there whether I’m aware of it or not. Force is the opposite.
It requires effort and comes at a great cost. The cost has always been my freedom to truly enjoy what I’m doing while I’m doing it.”
JJ's band Mofro has also been a decade in the making. Over that time, great players have come and gone, but according to JJ, the present incarnation -- with Art Edmaiston on saxophone, Dennis Marion on Trumpet, Anthony Farrell on organ and piano, Todd Smallie on Bass, Anthony Cole on drums and Andrew Trube on guitar – is “the creme de la crème."
"These musicians I get to play with make it look easy. I've learned so much from them about music and about life in general. It ain't always easy to keep a core together when you do so many shows a year, year after year, but I truly hope to keep these guys together as long as possible.”
From his early days playing cover music behind chicken wire at a Westside (Jacksonville) juke joint to playing sold-out shows and some of the largest music festivals in the world, it’s been a long road. But JJ has no illusions about where he’s headed or where he’s been. When prompted with questions about his past accomplishments or future plans, JJ lays down a little backwoods wisdom:
“I’m just a salmon swimming up stream. Going back home I reckon. I don’t know why and I quit caring why a long time ago. I guess there is no ‘why’ that my mind could understand anyway. All I do know is that I’ve enjoyed and I’m still enjoying every second of just being here and doing whatever it is I’m doing.”

After being in New York for only seven months, he landed a gig on the nationally syndicated show, "Uptown Comedy Club," where he spent two seasons. In 1995, Jim joined NBC’s "Saturday Night Live," becoming best known for his original character "Goat Boy" and his impression of actor Joe Pesci.

Jim Breuer pioneered the "heavy-metal comedy" revolution, combining his love of rock ’n’ roll with comedy backed by a full band. Jim continues to entertain packed crowds with his impressions of AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and Metallica singing "If You’re Happy and You Know It." It was this act that garnered him one of Comedy Central’s "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time."
In 2004, Jim began his career at Sirius Satellite Radio as the host of his own show "Breuer Unleashed" on RawDog 104. In 2009, the show was renamed as "Fridays with Breuer" which airs every Friday on Sirius RawDog 104 and XM 150 from 4pm-6pm, rebroadcasted 9pm-11pm. In 2006, Jim was the host of the VH-1 series "Web Junk 20," in which 20 hilarious online-based videos per week were shown. In 2008, Jim set out for his first tour in over six years. With his 85-year-old father and his film crew, Jim toured the country in tour buses on his "Breuniversity Tour," which included more than 20 colleges and comedy clubs and was used his "Jim Breuer Road Journals." Videos from that tour also sparked the making of his documentary "More Than Me," which was shown at the 2009 Montreal Film Festival. On July 25, 2009, Jim’s one-hour Comedy Central special "Let’s Clear the Air" premiered, with hilarious topics that included what "success" really is, Jim’s SNL days, and life with his elderly parents, his wife, and his three daughters. "Let’s Clear the Air" became one of the highest rated comedy special EVER! Jim has also supported various charities through his comedy, including the Chris Farley Foundation, MusiCares, his local police and fire departments and more. Jim currently resides in New Jersey enjoying spending time with his family, playing pick-up games of baseball, softball, and wiffleball, and watching the New York Mets.

Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band

Thursday, October 9, 2014  8pm 
21+ show

Roaring out of the southern Indiana foothills comes Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band playing a brand of Americana and Blues that stands alone – Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with

musical acuity sharp as razor wire – best know, this trio is a force to be reckoned with. 

With a reputation for their incendiary live shows well established, The Big Damn Band set out to make the album that would finally capture the same heat. Recorded at White Arc Studio in Bloomington,Indiana, the album was produced by The Rev. Peyton and Paul Mahern (John Mellencamp, Iggy Pop), and mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Dr. John, Shins). For previous albums, the band had recorded live, straight through in the same mode as a live show. Between the Ditches came together more slowly, with care. “We approached it saying we were going to make a record this time, not just a recording,” explained the Rev. He used a different guitar set up on almost every track, employing two ’30s National guitars, a cigar box guitar, a custom shop Gibson flattop 1929 L2 and an Airline map electric guitar. The primary amps are custom Weber amps made by Weber speakers –both are one of a kind.

Their fifth album, Between The Ditches features a new level of craftmanship in both recording technique and songwriting. The Rev. feels that it’s their best album to date.”I’m very proud of this album, the songwriting and the playing.” The guitar playing alone should put the Rev. in the same class with his much revered idols.
