THE DEVIL MAKES THREE w/ Jonny Fritz
Wednesday - 4/17/2013
8:30 PM | All Ages | $17.50 adv / $20 dos
With a slightly punky perspective on vintage American blues, The Devil Makes Three is a breath of fresh musical air on its eponymous Milan debut. Laced with elements of ragtime, country, folk and rockabilly, the critically praised, drummer-less trio - consisting of guitarist/frontman Pete Bernhard, stand-up bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean - brings forth a genuine [more...]

*Wine, cheese & artist reception with artist Chaz Well's Artistry
7:15pm in the lobby before the show!
AWB are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit 'Pick Up the Pieces' the band's strength actually lay in their consistently accomplished song-writing, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi- grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. Somewhat [more...]

KELLER WILLIAMS
Thursday - 5/2/2013
8:00 PM | All Ages | $37.50
Most artists would bristle at the term self-indulgent, but Keller Williams often invokes it in describing his own approach to music. To Williams, being self-indulgent means creating music that satisfies him-if he likes what he's produced, he figures, then his audience is more likely to embrace it too. If he's not happy with it, why would they be? And so, when Williams [more...]

The music of Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders live
@ Keystone 40th Anniversary
Keystone Revisited was bought together because of the huge demand from fans to hear more music from the originators of the so-called "Jam Band". When Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia got together in such groups as The Saunders Garcia Band, Reconstruction and Legion Of Mary it was pure magic, at the genesis of the jam band era. What better way to pay homage to these legendary [more...]

Sunday - 6/2/2013
8:00 PM | All Ages | $65
Long before Kevin Bacon launched his prolific stage and screen career, and before Michael Bacon became known as a go-to composer for film and television, they were just two brothers, born nine years apart, coming of age in Center City Philadelphia. By the late 1960s, Michael, already a professional musician, would gig with his band at the city's famed Electric Factory with [more...]

Wednesday - 7/17/2013
8:00 PM | All Ages | $65
There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it's played in service to an entire genre. Utter the phrase "young blues guitarist" within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Still barely in his 30s, the Louisiana [more...]

JOHN HIATT
Friday - 8/9/2013

John Hiatt's sales have never quite matched his reputation. Hiatt's songs were covered successfully by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap, and Dr. Feelgood to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night, and the Neville Brothers, yet it took him 13 years to reach the charts himself. Of course, it nearly took him that long to find his own style. Hiatt began his solo career in 1974, and [more...]

To create his fifth full-length album Start Livin', Hawaii-based singer/guitarist/songwriter Donavon Frankenreiter holed up in a Southern California studio for seven days with his longtime bassist Matt Grundy - and no one else. The follow-up to 2010's Glow, Start Livin' is a nine-track selection of folk-infused songs that sweetly reflect the simplicity of their recording. With [more...]
