    Tim Reynolds Live w/ Tenzin Chopak

    Kevin Black Presents Tim Reynolds Live w/ Tenzin Chopak

    Putnum Den, Saratoga Springs, NY

    Event Details..

    Get Tickets ($30)


    Between time in the Dave Matthews Band, his duo partnership with its famed front man, and leadership of his electric power trio, TR3, it's remarkable that Tim Reynolds still has time to tour by himself let alone release a new solo acoustic CD. The six and twelve-string guitar slinger lets his music do the talking as he unveils fourteen original tunes on "That Way" where he proves once again that his creativity and prowess are front and center. According to Tim, "These songs are personal stories of my life that have meaning to me; some happy, some secret, some silly. I just want people to hear the voice of the guitar tell each story through the melodies. even though there are no lyrics." Reynolds' musical pace on "That Way" varies from gentle finger picking on "Hidden Variables" to the furiously fast and vibrant southern-slanted "Just Around the Corner" to the soaring chunky rocker "Manfood." His jaw-dropping precision and all around mastery of his axe shines at every complex corner. "Some songs just came out instantly, like 'Ode to the Box.' For others, I collected little snippets over time, then went back and tinkered with an idea or piece of it and moved it around. Then I put it away again," said Reynolds. Reynolds’ inspiration for “That Way” came from years of absorbing parts of many different genres of music. “I love rock ‘n’ roll, especially 70s rock. When I listen to the Beatles, Genesis, and Yes, I want to hear how all the different parts play: not just the guitars. I’ve also been listening to classical music—Bartok since the 70s—and lately, 20th century string quartets, who I feel, are the most interesting and creative. If you listen to this stuff over a long span of time, it gets really familiar and gives me a germ of an idea or a little spark. Tumultuous music speaks to me. I get a very relevant awareness of different things that can happen in different times. Then I can improvise and open up what can be spontaneous for me. It’s a joy to hear such fresh and timeless music. It stretches your brain in a good way. It’s awesome. The inspiration for the strings on “Where Have the Years…” came from listening to string quartets. The cello and violin are doing exactly what my guitar is doing.” Unlike most guitar players, Reynolds is a full-spectrum musician. His ears and fingers have a different lilt, a trait that keeps the sonics of his music interesting and filled with gentle unexpected flashes of brilliance—something noticeable in his delightfully unorthodox slide work. “That Way” is filled with road-tested tracks that lace various melodies and adventurous guitar improvisations and inspirations atop a seasoned palette of rock, Piedmont country style, and classical influences. It’s obvious that this ridiculously-gifted guitarist has so much fun sparking great, creative energy from his acoustic guitar.

    The Darts

    7pm

    Boathouse Beer Garden, Romulus, NY

    Event Details..


    By aligning their dedication to hard work with a growing signature sound, The Darts are developing a niche all their own— one with a rock n’ roll foundation and just the right amount of pop and alt country polish to make it all sound like a memory from the summer of your youth. Hailing from all around the Ithaca area, their 5-piece sound is essentially comprised of guitars, drums, bass and vocals. While their music is original, their influences are familiar, and range from the Jayhawks and REM to the Beatles and The Band, from Dawes and Pink Floyd to The Guess Who and Motown. The Darts are relatively new on the scene, but each of the members are alumni from other bands: The Bay-area’s The Naked Barbies, The New York Rock, Cats Elbow, Radio London, Lil Anne & Hot Cayenne, and a number of others in and around our area. Singer/guitarist Todd Edmonds, bassist Rick Kline, drummer Dan Lashkoff, lead guitarist Rob Van Vleet, and rhythm guitarist Andy Russell all contribute to the songwriting task, adding layers to material each member might bring to the group. It is a process that has yielded some really great collaborations. The Darts are excited to help define the landscape of our area’s indie-rock music scene. As Dan Lashkoff says “Getting out to perform our songs for our friends is always the best energy a band can enjoy”. Who knows? we’re getting great responses where ever we play– hopefully we’ll see you out there!

    Gratefully Yours w/s/g St. Vith

    8pm

    The Range, Ithaca, NY

    Event Details..

    Get Tickets ($10)


    Gratefully Yours w/s/g St. Vith. The Range welcomes Gratefully Yours Friday March 31st. Come celeabrate with one of the best Grateful Dead cover bands around! Break out your colorful tie-dyes and spend the evening listening to cultural music that has withstood the test of time. Band Bios: Gratefully Yours has quickly established itself as one of the Northeast’s premiere Grateful Dead cover bands; with a truly all-star lineup and often performing “dream” set lists submitted by their fans. The band was founded in 2012 by Alex Mazur, (founding member and keyboardist of The Deadbeats… one of the, if not the longest running Grateful Dead cover bands in existence). Along with a core lineup that includes, Adam Czolowski (Sonic Garden), Tom Pirozzi (Ominous Seapods), Jeff Martinson (Shakedown) and Rob Schiff (Nailed Shutt), other honored members include Vinnie Amico (moe.), Rob Eaton (Dark Star Orchestra), Russ Lawton (Trey Anastasio Band), Bill Carbone (Max Creek) and Zach Nugent (Cats Under The Stars). The Dead were a truly unique band and had a unique bond with their audience: Magic is what they did. Music was how they did it. Ultimately, it is that magic that Gratefully Yours aims to “cover” and pay tribute to. And taking it one step further, they also encourage their audience to participate further in the creative process by giving them the opportunity to submit their dream set lists (or vote for one) online and the band often chooses one to perform at their shows. But of course, you never know what might happen… St. Vith takes a modern impression on the 70's jam styles of bands such as the grateful dead. They are tuned to a intimate setting such as wineries and cafes, though they are not limited. Festivals and larger settings allow for a fuller spectrum of intensity and sound. Ever changing with guests, and environment, St. Vith provides an eclectic original and colorful experience.

    COMEDIANS Aaron David Ward Comedian Aaron David Ward takes you on a voyage through his heart, mind, and soul at every performance. For the past 14 years, he’s brought laughter and fun into the lives of his fans by giving them a funny, honest, and sometimes twisted look at himself and the world. Aaron has performed at the World Series of Comedy Las Vegas, Boston Comedy Festival, and Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival. He’s appeared in the movies, What I See In The Dark and Aftermath. Every week you can catch Aaron’s comedic commentary on TV’s Glenn Slingerland Situation. And he appeared in a pilot entitled The List intended for MTV and VH1. Funny, insightful, smart, and entertaining are just a few ways to describe comedian Aaron David Ward. Catch him on The Not Too Far From Home Comedy Tour coming to a city, town, and village near you soon. MIKE STANKIEWICZ Dig, it's appropriate that this cat has gigged in nearly every comedy venue in the United States. At home in an eclectic gathering in San Francisco or a rust belt bar come shifts end, this clever comic will turn the tables on everyone. Winner of the prestigious "Best of Philly" award presented by Philadelphia Magazine, Stank takes you down a road you didn't expect to travel with a conversational style that makes you feel like you're riding the bar stool next to him. Among his international television appearances including "Comedy On The Road" with John Byner on A&E, Mike presents a special wit that transcends all mediums and blows his audiences away! Maybe that's why everyone wants him back. Originally from Erie, PA, where Mike realized playing second base on the Duck Inn softball team, would not propel him to the "Big League". He moved to Philadelphia to cut his teeth doing stand-up. With his rust belt influence, his intellectual proclivity and a blue-collar approach to humor, he turned Philadelphia on its ear. Stank does for stand-up what Tom Waits does for music. So if you like Mr. Waits and have a penchant for Charles Bukowski, you'll love Mike Stankiewicz! An interesting aspect to Mike's career is that he has lived on both coasts (LA and NY) and fits seamlessly in both locations as well as everywhere in between. Now Stank plies his wares everywhere from Las Vegas to Atlantic City, from Mobile to Montana. He's a modern day Kerouac, hell, you probably passed him "on the road"! Frank Gentile Frank Gentile is a professional comic who keeps audiences laughing by intertwining his personal experiences and unique takes on everyday events into his act. Along with writing boastful blurbs about himself, Frank spends his time performing in venues all over the Northeast including New York City.
