Don't miss Lawrence and Andy Frasco at New Mountain AVL on February 20th! ::: More About Lawrence ::: After years of consuming Stevie Wonder, Janis Joplin, and Eggo waffles, Lawrence delivers Breakfast, their twelve-song debut LP. Led by siblings Clyde Lawrence, 22, and Gracie Lawrence, 18, the New York-based soul-pop group blends old-school and new-school vibes to create a set of songs that sound as good on the record as they do at their high-energy live shows. To create Breakfast, Lawrence teamed up with Grammy Award winning producer Eric Krasno (Lettuce/Soulive/Tedeschi Trucks Band), and brought in several NYC soul/funk mainstays including Adam Deitch (Lettuce), Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy), and Maurice “Mobetta” Brown (Tedeschi Trucks Band) for guest appearances. Following two short runs with Blues Traveler in the fall of 2015, Lawrence is currently promoting Breakfast with a national tour of headline dates, festival appearances, and as many pancakes and omeletes as possible.  Clyde and Gracie have been writing and playing music together since their early childhood, performing regularly at small cafés and clubs around lower Manhattan, and of course, in their living room at their grandparents’ request. During Clyde’s time at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, they met the crew of talented musicians that would ultimately form the full-time Lawrence lineup, an eight-piece keyboard-driven powerhouse with a dynamic horn section to support the siblings’ explosive vocal arrangements. It was with this group that they began to garner a passionate following at countless venues and colleges across the Northeast.  With Breakfast, Lawrence doesn’t shy away from the oft-maligned idea of “pop” music, but instead is on a mission to write the music they wish “pop” sounded like. They draw from the past and present, combining their love of The Beatles, Randy Newman, and Etta James with Beyonce, Ben Folds, and Amy Winehouse.  In addition to working with Lawrence, Clyde has composed songs and score for films such as Miss Congeniality (2000), Music and Lyrics (2007), The Rewrite (2015), and Hard Sell (2016). At age six, Clyde was admitted as the youngest member to the Songwriters Guild of America for his work on Miss Congeniality (2000). Gracie is also an accomplished actress who has performed on Broadway in Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs, films such as Did You Hear About The Morgans (2009) and The Sitter (2011), and TV shows such as The Good Wife (2012) and The Americans (2014). ::: More About Andy Frasco ::: Andy Frasco, the 27-year old Los Angeles, CA native singer / songwriter / band maestro / entrepreneur / party starter / everyday hustler, and his band of gypsies “The U.N.” have been cited frequently as “Party Blues,” but the band’s musical inspirations and influences run much deeper incorporating elements of Soul, Funk, and Rock as well as tones of Roots, and Americana, creating a much more diverse sound and style that is distinctly Andy Frasco & the U.N. Frasco’s shows have been described as infectious, entertaining, and feel good. His performances are recognized as orchestrated chaos, inciting frenzied, undeniable good times, dancing, and perhaps even a good ole fashion freak out. Touring independently across the U.S. and Europe since he was 18 years old, Frasco first got his taste of the music industry managing and promoting bands when he was 16 years old -booking bands like Hello Goodbye, and working with labels such as Drive Thru and Atlantic Records, as well as venues like The Key Club in Hollywood, CA. Since his start, Frasco has embodied a DIY attitude and work ethic, making the road his home; averaging 200+ dates a year, trekking over 200,000 thousand miles spanning the country dozens of times over, blowing minds and building a loyal following everywhere he goes. 2014 marked a breakout year for Frasco, highlighted by the release of the band’s 3rd full-length studio album Half A Man, a host of high profile festival performances both domestically and overseas, and recognition from national press outlets such as Pollstar, Live For Live Music, and Relix. Produced by Grammy Award Winning, Charles Goodan, Half A Man received warm praise from press and fans alike, charting in the top 10 of Relix/Jambands.com Radio Chart for nearly 6 months, while the road highlighted featured performances on festivals like Wakarusa, Electric Forrest, and YSMB’s Harvest Festival in the US, and festivals like Zwarte Cross (NL), King’s Day Festival (DE), Bamberg Jazz Festival (DE), Guezenpop Festival (NL), and the COTAI Jazz & Blues Festival in Macau, China. To date, Andy has shared the stage and performed with artists such as Leon Russell, Galactic, Jackie Greene, Gary Clark Jr, Jakob Dylan, Butch Walker, Deer Tick, John Mayer, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Fishbone, Lukas Nelson, JJ Grey & Mofro, Lettuce and more. Continuing to build off the success of 2014, Frasco & the U.N. continued to pick up momentum both at home and abroad in 2015 with featured performances at SXSW, Wakarusa, Phases of the Moon, and Backwoods Music Festival in the U.S., as well as Totaal Festival (NL), a return to Zwarte Cross (NL), Open Flair Festival (DE), and Open Air Gross Lindow (DE) overseas. Amidst another heavy year of touring the band also recorded their 4th full-length studio album, “Happy Bastards”, set for release by Ruf Records on February 26, 2016 with producer Rick Parker (Lord Huron, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Sugarcult).

All Ages

The Record Company write and play raw, sincere rock n’ roll. Influenced by the rough honesty of their heroes–bluesmen like John Lee Hooker, early punk bands like The Stooges, and rock greats like The Rolling Stones–their sound incorporates slide guitar, distorted bass, a garage-sale Ludwig drum kit and the heartland-hued voice of Chris Vos, who grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm.

The three-man group started in late 2011, hanging up some old mics and recording live in the bass player’s living room in Los Feliz, CA. The Record Company have since played concert halls across North America, opening for acts as diverse as B.B. King, Social Distortion, Buddy Guy, Grace Potter, and Trombone Shorty. The band toured Europe supporting Blackberry Smoke in Oct-Nov 2015, and their first full-length album is due out on Concord Records on February 12, 2016.

Max Hatt / Edda Glass features an unmistakeable voice, ethereal guitar, and the duo’s award-winning Jazz Americana compositions. “We want to write about a world both intimate and vast, about little people on great plains,” says Glass. “Plus sometimes we throw in a little Bossa Nova.” They’ve been praised for their “vivid lyrical imagery” and “unique sound” (Larry Groce NPR Mountain Stage), “incomparable spook” (Nicole Atkins in Nashville Scene), and “mysterious and soulful magic” (Wilco’s Pat Sansone). After hiding out in Montana for many years, playing in the state’s only Bossa Nova band, the duo first hit the national stage at NYC’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where they won the 2014 Grand-Prize of the International Mountain Stage / NewSong Competition. They’ve since been featured by NPR Mountain Stage, Daytrotter, City Winery NYC’s Cellar Sessions, Huffington Post, Relix Magazine, Lincoln Center, and ASCAP at the Sundance Film Festival. Their 2016 album, Ocean of Birds, was produced by Pat Sansone of Wilco. They are based in Santa Fe, NM.

Description:
All three of these author’s books deal with America’s slave history and racial divide in different ways. Join them for what is certain to be a substantive discussion. Susan Rivers’ debut novel is The Second Mrs. Hockaday is a love story, a story of racial divide, and a story of the fall of the South at the end of the Civil War. When Major Gryffth Hockaday is called to the front lines of the Civil War, his new bride is left to care for her husband’s three-hundred-acre farm and infant son. By the time Major Hockaday returns two years later, his wife Placidia is bound for jail, accused of having borne a child in his absence and murdering it. What really transpired in the two years he was away? Inspired by a true incident. Kirkus describes it as “a compulsively readable work that takes on the legacy of slavery in the United States, the struggles specific to women, and the possibilities for empathy and forgiveness.” Susan Rivers is the recipient of two playwriting grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and has had short fiction published in the Santa Monica Review. In 2007 she earned an MFA in fiction writing from Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina, where she was also awarded a Regional Artist Grant from the Arts and Sciences Council. Nancy Peacock is the author of The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson, is a historical novel that takes readers from the 1860 slave pens of New Orleans to the cane fields of a sugar plantation to frontier Texas and finally into the band of Comanche Indians who capture Persimmon Wilson. He’s a former slave accused of the murder of his ex-master Joseph Wilson, and the kidnapping of Wilson’s wife. According to author Lee Smith says, “From its riveting beginning to the last perfect word, Nancy Peacock grabs her reader by the throat and forces him to hang on for dear life. …as deeply moving and exciting an American saga as has ever been penned.” In Go South to Freedom, Frye Gaillard expands upon an oral history about a flight to freedom from slavery. He penned a novel for young readers and weaved the story of Gilbert Fields through the nearly forgotten history of the Seminoles and their alliance with runaway slaves. Frye Gaillard’s narrative makes clear that the Seminole Wars of the 1830s, in which Indians fought side by side with former slaves, represent the largest slave uprising in U.S. history. Kirkus says Go South to Freedom is “an informative and well-told story about a little-known aspect of American slavery that needs to be remembered and retold.”

(Call 828-575-2737 for dinner reservations) For brothers Dan and Nate Monea and longtime friend Adam Orin, their time is meant to be spent doing what they love – writing, recording and performing music. “Even though Nate was just 13 and I was 16 when we played our first show, I knew music would be our life”, says Dan. That passion was affirmed in 2012, when this childhood trio from Cleveland, Ohio were selected to open for Bruce Springsteen to perform in front of 60,000 fans during Hard Rock Calling’s summer music festival in London’s Hyde Park. The band secured this opportunity by winning Hard Rock’s worldwide battle of the bands, besting over 12,000 other bands from around the world. Paul Pfau will open.
