Ricky Martin Lloyd Walters, better known to the world as “Slick Rick”, is a Grammy-nominated, English-born performer and the most successful British-American rapper in music history who is known as Hip-Hop’s Greatest Storyteller. Originally from London, the hip-hop veteran began his career in 1983 as a member of Doug E. Fresh’s Get Fresh Crew, pioneering what is referred to as the “Golden Age of Hip- Hop”. With four albums to his credit – the landmark The Great Adventures of Slick Rick (1988), The Ruler’s Back (1991), Behind Bars (1994) and The Art of Storytelling (1999). Rick has collaborated with a range of musical icons, from Jay-Z and Missy Elliot to Outkast, Mos Def and Aaliyah. His music has been sampled and interpolated over 600 times, by such artists as Beyonce, Beastie Boys, TLC, Nas, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Black Star, The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg and Color Me Badd. In the process, he became the most sampled hip-hop artist ever. Many of the new songs became hit singles, underscoring his timeless influence. He’s been a VH1 Hip-Hop Honors honoree; About.com’s “Top 50 MCs of Our Time,” ranked him #12; The Source’s roundup of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time placed him at #15 and Complex called him “The Best Rapper Alive” at the peak of his career. Ever the influence, he has been referenced in over 35 songs from the early 1990’s to present day by recording artists such as Nicki Minaj, J Cole, Pitbull. will.i.am. Amy Winehouse and Big Sean. Slick Rick has also acted and cameo’d in 10 movies and videos. He has four Billboard 200 records, and 14 Top 100 Singles worldwide.

Music isn’t his only passion; on top of being a uniquely gifted lyricist, Rick is an actor and music producer known his fashion sense and for a growing list of business and philanthropic endeavors. The artist is known for his infamous eye-patch and heavily adorned jewelry. This self-expression through personal style has become his signature and has never been successfully duplicated. Recognizing the need for positive influences, he has devoted his time to mentoring youth on the dangers of violence. Additionally, Rick has partnered with various organizations to raise awareness and funds for the issues impacting underserved communities.

Philanthropic Efforts
Celebrating more than three decades as a performer, Rick continues to give to his community and culture. He regularly visits schools and prisons, mentoring and providing life lessons to young people. One holiday season he and his wife, Mandy, chose to spend Christmas Eve with inmates in the C-76 building at New York’s Riker’s Island prison, where he himself had been housed. Another year he teamed up with his local councilman, Andy King, to work with the Bronx Youth Empowerment Program (BYEP) to sponsor the organization’s Christmas charity event. Their sponsorship supports BYEP in challenging youth in the community to be positive and productive through the motto “Building mind, body, and community”. After engaging and encouraging students in one Newark, NJ grade school for an entire day he remarked, “It felt great to share what I am passionate about – music and poetry.” In 2014, Rick participated in Will.i.am’s“Trans4M” concert, which raised more than $2.4 million for the music producer’s i.am.angelFoundation. In 2015, the Alpha Gamma Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity honored him at its “Living The Dream Luncheon,” which celebrates “leaders that, despite facing adversity, have continued to dedicate their time and resources to better their communities.”

At his 50th birthday celebration, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz honored Rick with a proclamation for his contributions to Bronx history. Diaz also declared January 9th as Slick Rick Day. Recently, Rick donated a dozen items from his iconic wardrobe collection to The Smithsonian Foundation’s National Museum of African-American History. For his efforts Rick has received accolades from Miami Dade College, the Florida House of Representative, and Music Saves Lives. In addition, Rick was recently a Mixx Cares Humanitarian Award Recipient. “His musical career is an example of hard work and perseverance that is to be admired and celebrated. We also recognize his philanthropic endeavors which have allowed him to remain in touch with the youth of the community and help them flourish in life and academics”, says Latin Mixx Awards Committee.

Business Ventures
Rick is the owner of two rental properties in The Wakefield section of The Bronx, which he purchased in 1989 following one of his first major tours. Always a style innovator, he partnered with producer/entrepreneur will.i.am to create a limited edition ill.i Optics capsule collection of sunglasses, for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. That same year, he joined forces with custom-apparel platform Teespring to produce a limited edition white tee featuring representations of Rick’s best-known gold and diamond chains. Just this year, Rick connected with Odd Sox to release two customized socks from the company’s music collection. His designs feature iconic images of the artist from hip-hop’s golden era. Additionally, he teamed up with Lyric Culture for a limited-release women’s tank top sporting the lyrics to “La-di-da-di.”

Rick’s voice reads the audio book version of How To Get A Record Deal: The Knowledge To Succeed by Wendy Day, a music-industry veteran who founded Rap Coalition and has managed such artists as David Banner, Killah Priest and Rass Kass. She is also known for brokering recording deals for No Limit Records and Cash Money Records, and working with Tupac Shakur, Eminem, Young Buck, Twista and others, including Rick himself, as an advisor. Always seeking new ways to extend his one-of-a-kind brand, Rick hopes to get into voice animated content and design a custom sneaker/shoe line. His team is also in the planning stages of securing his very first world tour later this year.

With more than three decades in the world of music, this legacy artist is still striving, still working, still giving back to his community and still ruling!

MOULIN ROUGE ~ AUDITIONS FOR L'AMOUR Limited to 20 persons per show 6:00pm seating 7:45pm seating THE EXPERIENCE Moulin Rouge Auditions for LAmour is a magical evening to remember; fine French cuisine, contemporary and vintage love songs, farcical magic, wild dancing and a touching story. The show is an hour-long program enjoyed over a leisure one and half-hour dinner. This three-course dinner is paired with a bottle of wine for each couple to share. Vive Le Moulin Rouge, vive LAmour! THE STORY Inspired by the 2001 love story movie, Moulin Rouge, it is 1904, Montmartre, Paris. It is a time between wars, when people where excited to discover extravagant dance halls that brought together a mix of riffraff and girls of easy virtue with the affluent and influential. It was in the Jardin de Paris that the Moulin Rouge became the temple of music, dance and artistic performance. And at this moment they are seeking a new musical dramatist and conducting auditions for a new act. Charles Zidler, Moulin Rouges manager believes he has found his theatre composer in a young American named Jerome Kern visiting from New York. Zidler has also found three new prospects for a new act, a French singer/magician, an English actress and an American dancer who is also the courtesan of a rich tycoon. Madame Oller, Moulin Rouges choreographer and artistic director, is not easy to please and is not easily influenced by the politics of investors but by her audience; an audience that she has invited backstage to view the auditions and draw from them their desires. Over three days of auditions of music, magic and dance performances the artists make new discoveries about their hidden feelings and ambitions. What is clear is that love is emotionally chaotic, blissfully oblivious and often unrequited. DRESS We ask our guests to "dress-up" for this event in cocktail attire. We especially encourage donning on any vintage ensembles from 1900's to 1930's SEATINGS 6:00pm - 7:30pm First Seating 7:45pm - 9:15pm Second Seating THE MENU THE BEGINNING - MISE EN BOUCHE Buffalo mozzarella, olive oil, pesto, tomato THE DESIRE - SHARED Choice of small estate French wine selections (1 bottle per couple) THE HEART OF THE MATTER A platter of French delectables: French sweet baguette Wedge of LAmuse Signature cheese Vegetable and rabbit rillettes French cornichons, pickled carrots, sweet onions Balsamic-glazed salmon fillet Elk steak tartar topped with deep fried onions LOVE'S ENDING Goat cheese with thyme honey and toasted walnut cake or Four-chocolate flour-less cake topped with ganache Price per person: $55.00 Gratuity and 7.25% tax are additional and presented on site Includes: Three course dinner, bottle of wine from our select French wines (1 bottle per couple), dinner show.

Cosmic Americana

Jerry Castle has plenty left in the tank. The gifted singer-songwriter has morphed thanks to the float tank. When most recording artists talk about altered states, the reference is to drugs. But when Castle waxes about reaching the Theta state, he’s talking about utilizing sensory deprivation tanks, which has helped change his course as a songwriter.

 For the uninitiated, the experience Castle benefited from is floating weightlessly, courtesy of epsom salts, supported by skin temperature liquid inside a sensory deprivation tank. You are freed from all sensations of gravity, temperature, sight, sound and touch. It’s difficult to distinguish between parts of the body, while immersed. 

“It’s like floating in outer space”, Castle says. “There really is nothing like it. When I go into the tank, it takes me to another area. It definitely has opened me up as a songwriter. Music and lyrics come to me quicker. I can remember ideas longer and my music sounds pretty different.”

After a spin of Castle’s latest album, “Not So Soft Landing,” that assessment is evident. Castle has evolved. The former member of the jam band Toast is a different animal. His solo albums, 2004’s “Back Side of Down,” 2010’s “Don’t Even Ask” and 2013’s “Desperate Parade” are primarily comprised of contemporary country songs with some Americana elements.

But the tunes on “Not So Soft Landing” take fans to a different place. The leadoff track “Ride,” packs a punch but like the rest of the album, the catchy rocking cut is atmospheric and dense.

When the longtime Nashville player sings “it’s time to start the ride,” it signifies a new beginning. One of the few common denominators from prior releases is Castle’s unmistakable low tenor.

“It’s true that everything has changed except my voice,” Castle says. “I can’t do much about that (twang). I’m from the South.  But in terms of music, I’ve never written material that’s so ethereal or spacey.

“She Kills” is a moody, dramatic and baroque straightforward rocker inspired by an old friend in Los Angeles. “It’s more literal than you would think,” Castle says. “It’s about a girl who is younger than me, who had a crush on me and she was well, interesting. She was involved with a guy in prison. She just made some unfortunate choices.”

The hook-laden sonic salvo “American Dream” (“The more he makes/ the more he needs.”) is all about what’s wrong about the rat race, which Castle was part of a decade ago when he worked radio promotion for Taylor Swift.

 “I had to figure out how to monetize things and that led to a gig with Taylor,” Castle recalls. “ It wasn't what I wanted to do but it paid the bills. I was working in the music industry but it's different than making music. After that job ended, I googled highest paying job with a bachelor’s degree and pharmaceutical sales rep and financial advisor popped up.”

Castle toiled successfully at the latter, while still maintaining his career as a singer-songwriter. Castle was making good money but he paid a price for it. “I was drifting into writer’s block,” Castle says. “Shit wasn’t going so good.”

The former college running back dove into songwriting and the comfortable confines of the tank.     

“I had no idea that the tank would have this impact on my songwriting,” Castle says. “ I just wanted to chill out but once I started floating, the music and lyrics came quickly. This was the quickest writing process I’ve ever experienced and I think it has to do with floating."
And now like Modest Mouse, Castle will float on. 

"And now I have this album (due to his latest inspiration)," Castle said. "How cool is that?”

Join us as we come together to support Terpsicorps' artistic statement of protest, TRANSFORM.   Generously hosted by Strada, we will start the evening at 5:30pm with cash bar cocktails on the roof of Social Lounge with a special improvisational performance by the Terpsicorps dancers.   Terpsicorps' artistic director, Heather Maloy, will share with us her vision for the upcoming show and her motivation behind this bold stand against injustice.  Then at 6:30, we will move to the private upstairs dining room at Strada for an incredible meal. Sample menu  Includes one glass of wine Primi:  house salad option Entree's:  rigatoni, veggie lasagna, or chicken Marsala Dessert:  tiramisu or cannoli (Options will be available for vegetarian and gluten sensitive patrons.) TRANSFORM aims to be a full expression of the organization’s vital core values, an act of creative resistance to laws of oppression. The work conveys individual stories of transformation, offering the audience a cross section of human experience across diverse struggles and issues. Maloy strives to press the audience to examine that no one person's struggle is more valid or deserving of our understanding than another, to celebrate the beauty and importance of living a full life in all of its forms. Transform aims to be a uniting force that embraces the pain and exaltation of the never-ending changes that make up the life of every human being. This season comes at a pivotal time for Terpsicorps as the organization has just opened The Academy at Terpsicorps, a professional training school for dancers in Asheville with a particular mission to offer dance at scholarship to low income families across the region. The mission of the new school is grounded in a deep commitment that any child might have the opportunity for self-realization.  Protest theatre has an incredible power to encourage great social change. Like anything else however, great work requires financial support. After a year of substantial construction and start up expense, generously funded in part through this very platform, Terpsicorps is starting out their season in greater financial need than they have encountered in more than a decade. Employing world class dancers, creating visuals that inspire the mind, and marketing this project so that it can perform it's mission to its fullest is expensive but art can change the world! For tickets to Transform, call 828-257-4530 or purchase online.  To donate additional funds to the cause, visit our gofundme campaign.

THE IMMERSION Back by popular demand this event is an unforgettable, immersive mystery dinner experience that takes you back to Asheville, 1929. Dinner, music, singing performances, fine acting, a grand dinner and unexpected twist awaits as dinner guests. THE SETUP It is September 1929 and guests at Lex 18 await the arrival of the evening's honoree, native son Thomas Wolfe. Returning for a brief visit to his childhood home, Thomas has been invited to the former Eureka Saloon, now Lex 18, to dine with guests and perform a reading from the manuscript of his new book Look Homeward, Angel. The manuscript is scheduled to be mailed to the publisher this week, so this is a truly private advance reading. The intimate dinner, complimented by a visiting pianist, takes a dark and scandalous turn. Multiple motives, suspicions and chaos ensues. Fortunately, there is a special guest who can solve the mystery and return peace to the evening while revealing a shocking future.. The proprietress of the Eureka Saloon has made great plans for her guests' enjoyment including securing bootlegged wine, beer and whisky, a four-course dinner affair and a hired jazz musician from Washington, DC to hear and see the young novelist he admires. After Mr. Wolfe's reading of a rather spicy excerpt from his "tell-all" novel, a lovely dining experience accompanied by live music and song appears to unfold seamlessly. Suddenly, however, in the midst of all this enjoyment the evening takes a dark turn. A deceptive plot, prickled with mysterious motives and unwanted suspicions, is revealed in the chaos. Luckily, a visiting guest in attendance can turn the evening's digression and resolve the accusations and defensive posturing. While reluctant to step into the role, he may open a bigger can of worms than anyone has bargained for. STYLE AND ENGAGEMENT This uniquely designed dinner experience blends historical facts, setting and personages with fictionalized events that are both fun and fascinating. With an integrated cast of 12 characters, guests' interactions and involvement can range from fully engaged mystery sleuths to casual reserved observers. The only instruction is to play your authentic self. DRESS There is one guest requirement which is to dress for dinner in the style of the 1920s and 1930s. If your closet does not offer the option, we do ask our diners to dress semi formal; jacket and tie for men and cocktail attire for women. A week prior, guests will receive a mailed invitation from the proprietress of the Eureka Saloon (present-day LEX 18) providing directions and information detailing the evening's event. THE MENU & TIMELINE COCKTAIL RECEPTION 6:30 - 7:00PM Your Choice of: French 75: Calls for gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and some bubbles. OR Slippery Slope: Made with Dewar's Scotch, Orange Peel Moonshine, lime and lemon juice and a hint of simple syrup. FIRST COURSE Artisan cheese, marcona almonds, apple butter, French pickled cornichons, fresh baked bread SECOND COURSE Spring salad, carrots, red peppers, sunflower seeds, raisins with a lemon champagne vinaigrette dressing THIRD COURSE CHOICES Scallops, wilted spinach, roasted nuts over Angel Hair pasta OR Lamb ragu, wilted spinach, roasted nuts over Angel Hair pasta OR Tomato, mushroom, wilted spinach, roasted nuts over Angel Hair pasta FOURTH COURSE Chocolate chocolate torte $55.00 TICKETS INCLUDE: Cocktail tasting Four-course dinner Live Music and Musical Performances Elementary Watson! An Immersive Mystery Dinner Experience Additional Alcohol; Sales Tax; Gratuity Charge are not included and will be presented at the end of show. LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL, published in 1929 A legendary author on par with William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Wolfe published Look Homeward, Angel, his first novel, in 1929. About a young man's burning desire to leave his small hometown and tumultuous family in search of a better life, the work gave proof of his genius and launched a powerful legacy. The novel follows the trajectory of Eugene Gant, a brilliant and restless young man whose wanderlust and passion shape his adolescent years in rural North Carolina. Wolfe said that Look Homeward, Angel is "a book made out of my life." His largely autobiographical story about the quest for a greater intellectual life has resonated with and influenced generations of readers, including some of today's most important novelists. Rich with lyrical prose and vivid characterizations, this twentieth-century American classic will capture the hearts and imaginations of every reader.

The Mountaintop by Katori Hal June 2-18, 2016 Directed by Steph Hickling Beckman Great theater can emerge from a simple yet evocative question: “What if?” Katori Hall, winner of the Blackburn Prize for outstanding women playwrights, asks the question: What did Martin Luther King Jr. do the night before he died? Who did he talk to? What did he say? Her play attempts to answer these questions, albeit in an imaginative rather than realistic way. The Mountaintop, took home England’s Olivier Award for best play. Starring Desmond Zampella as Dr. Martin Luther King, and Kirby Gibson as Camae *Early Bird Special: Purchase your ticket(s) by March 5th and pay no fees!!

Morgan Geer’s Drunken Prayer
http://drunkenprayer.com/

Morgan Christopher Geer, who performs solo and with band as Drunken Prayer, splits residence between Asheville, NC and Portland, OR. KCRW, LA calls Drunken Prayer, “a quintessential slice of backwoods poetry”. The Portland Mercury describes Geer as “the bastard child of Tom Waits and Merle Haggard”. Morgan is also the current studio and touring guitar player for Bloodshot Records artists, Freakwater.

He is the son of a New Orleans folk singer and a California mushroom farmer. His wit comes easy, in whispers, shouts and sneers. He’s a showman–“a barking ringleader with chops between Tom Waits and the Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes” (Willamette Week, Portland, OR).

Geer, who grew up in Black Mountain, NC, wrote many of Drunken Prayer’s first compositions while wood-shedding on a farm in Sonoma County, California. His records are a dark mix of blues, country, traditionals and reluctant pop music; dynamic, with “an almost inculpable sincerity” (Mountain Xpress, Asheville, NC). His swampy crooning vocals and angular, percussive guitar style create a nicely creepy backdrop for rakish, playful stories of unironic and eternal themes.

In February, 2012 Drunken Prayer became Portland based Fluff and Gravy Records’ inaugural artist with the release of Into the Missionfield. Since then Geer’s records have been an ambitious and critical success; the Portland Mercury going so far as to declare Geer “Warren Zevon’s medium, showing him the world from the great beyond.” On Drunken Prayer’s latest effort, The Devil & The Blues (August, 2015), Geer crafts another journey through America’s weird musical heritage. With help from members of The Sadies, Reigning Sound, and Freakwater, the sounds on this record are bluesy and psychedelic; the arrangements as loose and buoyant as a New Orleans Jazz funeral. The lyrics are as sweet as they are damning, offering a window into the mind of Morgan Geer. The view that it affords is at once unsettling and familiar.

Geer’s previous band, The Unholy Trio of Asheville, NC, also featured members of The Reigning Sound and Freakwater. On their 5th Year Anniversary compilation Bloodshot Records featured the Trio’s devilish version of Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise“.

The Good Old Boyz
https://www.facebook.com/The-Good-Old-Boyz-99744805547/
If heaven is anything like Dixie, then you’re gonna wanna go hear the Good Old Boyz before you die, just so you can be in the know when you stroll through those antebellum pearly gates and hear them playing that great jamboree in the sky. Fronted by Blue Rag veterans Aaron “Woody” Wood and Scott Sharpe, and supported by rhythm rebels David Connor Jones and Richard Foulk, The Good Old Boyz come together to form Asheville’s premiere Honky Tonk band, bringing old school country fans some of the finest renditions of the Grand Old Opry and The Outlaws, from the likes of Hank & Lefty to Waylon & Willie & the Boys. Never the same show twice, always keeping it tight but loose, these Boyz like to take it way out there before bringing it all back home with a shot of rock and roll. Come git you some before they’re gone again on the lost highway.

8pm doors, 9pm show. ALL AGES. Standing room only. $7 ADV, $10 day of show.

Will we soon face days like the prophet Daniel faced? The culture mocked his God. The king persecuted his people. The lions breathed down his neck. Yet Daniel never wavered in his faith. As our own society moves further and further away from God, how can we as followers of Christ stand like Daniel: bold, assured, and hopeful? Find out how the challenging days ahead can also be our most exciting days. Witness the powerful hand of the Almighty working on your behalf and walk in the knowledge that He is in control.
