Citizen Cope
An Intimate solo acoustic performance by
Citizen Cope
Saturday,  October 19
That's right folks: Citizen Cope is bringing his unique brand of urban folk to The Klein Auditorium for a special acoustic show.

Citizen Cope has got swagger. It's a word that perfectly captures the vibe on Cope's last record One Lovely Day. Musically, the album is teeming with supercool acoustic pieces, funked out grooves and terrifically written lyrical content.

At times he comes off as a more soulful Jack Johnson, jamming out in the acoustic, singing laid back acoustic anthems about the summer. Other times he wanders into a little bit of the reggae world; other times a little bit of rock 'n' roll. However, the wheelhouse he's the best at is that blue-eyed soul and that type of acoustic music that you can picture being performed in black and white with a dramatic spotlight highlighting the performer.

Umphrey's McGee
Umphrey's McGee
Thursday,  October 17
Get ready for a sonic excursion. Playing under a kaleidoscope of a lightshow that floods the crowd in white light during sonic peaks, the band creates an intensity that is equal parts rock, jam and electronic dance. Umphrey's McGee's ability to be a living, shifting musical organism makes them so distinct. Through the use of dozens of hand signals and an innate sense of anticipation of each other's tendencies, it is often indecipherable what is improvised and what has been tightly composed for years.

See them live, and there'll be little doubt why they are one of the most innovative live acts on the scene today.

"Umphrey's McGee may be the most accomplished jam band in America.."
- Rolling Stone

Headed by Cyril Neville of the Neville Brothers, Devon Allman, the son of Greg Allman, Mike Zito, a firey bluesman, and Yonrico, of the Derek Trucks Band on drums, the Royal Southern Brotherhood is a rock-and-roll collective bringing together elements of New Orleans funk rhythms, Southern rock and Texas guitar slinging.

What started out as a rumor and a few informal local gigs at various New Orleans venues has developed into a full-fledged powerhouse of soulful sound that's rockin,' funky and all-together groove-a-licious.

The Felice Brothers
the Felice Brothers
Friday, August 30
This clan of bearded, shaggy-haired hootenannies, blend folk, Americana, and revivalist roots rock into a earthy sound. To fully understand that the Felice Brothers are the real deal — that they're a pack of earth-stained country boys from the wilds of the Catskill Mountains — it helps to see them live.

Whatever you want to call them — folk rock, country rock, roots, bluesy-country-Americana — the boys are more interested that you get down and dirty with their musical ethos and cast the labels aside.

The REvivalists
Wednesday, September 11
There's a fine line between a jam band and a band that jams. New Orleans' the Revivalists fall into the latter category. The band seamlessly mixes indie, alt-country, soul and everything in between.

The Revivalists know how to infect a live venue with a sense of purpose and energy. Their performances wrap feel-good, danceable melodies around funky, shape-shifting jams as energetic fans get down to their grooves.

If you don't know these guys, ask anyone who was at Gathering of the Vibes this year. They'll fill you in on what you've been missing.
