Parmalee

Parmalee recently made history when its multi-week #1 smash “Carolina” became the longest climbing single by a duo or group in the 24-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart. Parmalee was also the first multi-member Country act to garner a #1 single on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts since Florida Georgia Line. “Carolina” was recently certified GOLD (for over 500,000 in sales) by the RIAA.

Parmalee’s debut country album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA, has earned critical praise from People, The New York Times, USA Today, Newsday, Billboard and more. A 2014 semi-finalist for the Academy of Country Music’s coveted “New Artist of the Year” award, Parmalee recently joined one of country’s leading male vocalists, Jake Owen, on his Days Of Gold Tour as the band’s new single, “Close Your Eyes” climbs the country radio charts.

Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career he co-starrred in two independent films "Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies" and "Joanie Loves Furbies".

Mark needed that instant connection. So he bagan his stand-up comedy career. In Marks comedy routine, he melds observational humor, one liners, family humor, and humorous original songs with guitar accompaniment together, to create his own unique style of comedy. He has been compared to the likes of Adam Sandler and Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states including Nevada, California, and New York. Mark hopes to do a film in the future people have actually seen.

Bernard Allison

As a true "son of the blues," Bernard Allison possesses the requisite guitar feel and vocal intonations necessary to push his blues into the next century. He knows the energy level necessary to hold audiences and combines enough showmanship and spontaneity to push the performance in fresh, innovative directions each night. 

If there ever was a CD for all occasions, this is it. It's got the chill songs to curl up with on a rainy day, or the thrill music you'll blas when you're driving late at night. By adding the rhythm guitar of Bernard's guitar soul mate, Eric Gales, every song explodes into a guitar player's head trip. The title cut opens the recor with Bernard's trademark funk meets blues sound. That signature sound permeates other tunes like "Compromising for Your Need," "Heart of St. Paul," and "Groove with Me," Bernard's treatise on the moderneque blues he'll continue to play around the world. But Bernard's got so much more. On "So Devine" Bruce McCabe's piano and Jose James' alto sax steals the show. On "Just Me and My Guitar," Bernard shows off the frantic slide techniques he learned in the 1980's form Johnny Winter. For slow blues, Bernar and pianist Rusty Hall turn in a first rate guitar and piano performance on "That's Why I'm Crying." But any fan of Bernard Allison knows that every show or record comes with one of his father's songs. Here, Bernad reprises Luther's 1980's tune "Serious," played with Bernard's eerie, Luther-like vocal attack. In additinoa, Bernard strips "Serious" down to just piano and guitar in his after-hours styled closer. 

Amid all the daily pop culture pressures to be the next American Idol, why does Bernard stay rooted in the blues? "The blues is my roots. Regardless of how far outside of the blues I reach for tones, I can't ever leave the blues. Whenever I play, all those guitar parts are Luther Allison coming through me. My dad was the same way, he wasn't all blues. He loved Otis Redding or Chuck Berry. I'm just showing where my influences come from. And respecting the people who got me to this point."

Better Than Ezra

Friday, November 14, 2014  8pm
21+ show

Before their omnipresent 1995 single “Good” hit No. 1, before their debut album Deluxe went double-platinum, before popular shows such as Desperate Housewives licensed their song “Juicy,” before Taylor Swift attested to their timeless appeal by covering their track “Breathless” — New Orleans’ Better Than Ezra was a pop-rock act paying its dues, traveling from town to town in a ramshackle van. Over two decades after the band formed, that vigilance still resonates strongly with the trio, who were finally rewarded after seven years of stubbornly chasing their dreams. “This band,” notes bassist Tom Drummond, “has never been handed anything.”
“I remember when we drove to St. Louis just for $50 and pizza,” says frontman-songwriter Kevin Griffin. “Then in the middle of the show, we’d start to drop the hint: ‘Hey! Anybody got a place for us to crash?’” Though they were told countless times by managers and A&R reps to throw in the towel, “Good” — a joyous anthem about pulling the plug on a relationship — silenced skeptics.
Better Than Ezra has always possessed an uncanny ability to deliver a sticky melody. It just took time for the world to figure this out. As testament to Griffin’s pop prowess, he’s now become an in-demand songwriter and producer across an array of genres (from Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” to Howie Day’s “Collide”) in the five years since the band’s last album, Paper Empire. While penning tracks for other artists, Griffin found himself squirreling away compositions he felt best belonged to the Better Than Ezra canon. He coaxed the band back together (which includes drummer Michael Jerome) to record in L.A. for six weeks with Beck and Phoenix producer Tony Hoffer. As testament to their inner-band harmony, ex-drummer Travis McNabb, still tight with the band, filled in on percussion in the studio while Jerome was on tour.
When talking about breaking out of the 90s bubble, Drummond says, “We’ve been asked to join nostalgia tours. But we always say ‘no,’ because the music we’re making is still relevant. We don’t feel like we have to make the same albums we did in the ’90s. Our music changes.”  
Proving just that point, the group recently dropped an effulgent new single, “Crazy Lucky,” in advance of their eighth full length, All Together Now (out September 9, 2014). The single is currently in the Top 40 Hot AC Charts and continuing to climb.  
All Together Now, a collection of crisp, electro-pop inspired songs. Themed around chance, the album spins out from the serendipity-marveling “Crazy Lucky” into reflective, if relatable, fare such as the vibratory, folk-inflected “Insane,” the falsetto-kissed “One Heart Beating,” and the more sprawling “The Great Unknown.” Griffin reflects fondly on Better Than Ezra’s fateful formation and lasting appeal: “I’m more and more fascinated by how so many things we consider bedrock in our lives —certainties, immutable things, everything we love and cherish — are in fact held together by these invisible, gossamer strings.”
And they don’t take their good fortune for granted. Though the group recorded 18 tracks, they only deemed 11 of those worthy enough for All Together Now. “We made an album that was poppier and more concise songwriting,” Griffin says. “We wanted to give our old fans something familiar, but we wanted to attract new fans. There’s going to be a nostalgic element to our band now, but how can we transcend that?” The philosophy driving their compositions, says Griffin, is pretty simple: “Whether realistic or folly, we still believe there’s some plateau of success we haven’t reached, that’s within our grasp.” Despite having written solo for so long, Griffin’s recent success as a musical hired gun has inspired him to change his ways. This time around, most of the album was co-written with his extracurricular friends. Nolan Sipe lent his sound to “Crazy Lucky,” while Tony Hoffer lent orchestration and a gently echoing beat to “Gonna Get Better” — a wake-up call about a friend’s addiction. (Of the latter’s optimistic tone, Griffin notes: “There’s a great saying I love: It came to pass, it didn’t come to stay. When you’re in a hole, you can’t see that sometimes….”) Says Drummond, “For us, it’s always been, ‘Is it a good melody you can sing with meaningful lyrics?’” On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s “Dollar $ign,” a jaunty sing-along about materialism with carnivalesque synths — Griffin’s joyous, satirical collaboration with Shy Carter and Zac Malloy.
