Bowery Station Music Schedule (July 18 - 21)

posted Jul 16, 2018, 8:08 AM by Matt Gardi

Just a couple of weeks left before Bowery Station goes on summer vacation in August, so we have brought in some of your favorites for the coming weeks...

Let's take a gander at what we have goin'.....

Wednesday, July 18 - BS Open Mic rocks from 6-8ish.  And... The Dave and Christy Cerrato double down continues.  As most of you know, our Open Mic makes for a fun evening of a variety of talent giving their all on stage.  And as many of you know, the tips for the performers on stage always go to a charity.  Dave and Christy have generously offered to match all the performer tips for the remaining Open Mics in July.  We have been raising money for the victims of the Eastpoint Fire, and thus far have done quite well.  During the last two Open Mics, generous patrons have thrown $1030 into the performer tip buckets.  There are two additional weeks, so come on out and play, and if so inclined toss a dollar or two in the bucket for a great cause.

Thursday, July 19 - Somebody say "Awwww, Sh**!" as Johnny Barbato returns for a show from 6-9pm.  Johnny has seen a series of unfortunate circumstances that have forced him to cancel a few shows, so he is anxious to come light up Apalachicola as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays!  We are just as anxious to get Johnny back on the BS stage as he has been arduously consumed with building his own venue in Alabama that we have affectionately dubbed.."BS West!"  Barbato back in the Bowery...Badabing!

Friday, July 20 - Brandi Adams returns for an afternoon show from 4-6pm.  Brandi is a fast rising artist in the southeast with an incredible voice and gifted guitar.  Her musical talent is eclipsed by her thoughtful compositions, as her songwriting skills capture the attention of her audiences.  Then, get your rock n' roll boots on, as Southern Flood is bringing their hard hitting show back in for a Friday night from 7-10pm.  The gang always puts on a great show, adding new material while playing many of your favorites. The crowd always gets up and dances when the flood comes rolling in!

Saturday, July 21 - Susan David joins us for an afternoon show from 3:30-5:30pm.  Susan already has a great collection of salty americana originals, but she is anxious to showcase the songs off her latest CD, and you will love them!  Susan's songs are frequent flyers on Oyster Radio for a good reason, so come on out for a show that Saturday afternoons in Apalach are built for.  Then, back by popular demand, Six String South is set to light up your Saturday night from 6:30-9:30pm.  Great guitar licks and vocals carry us through a set list of rock, blues and good ol' country.  These guys put on a driving show that everyone sings along with, as they raise the rafters on a Saturday night in Apalachicola.

Again, thanks to all of you live music fans that come on out and support live music at Bowery Station as we continue to strive to bring in a wide variety of artists, genres and energy levels for your enjoyment.  We can't do it without you!

See you at the show...stay cool!

Bowery Station Music Schedule (July 11 - 14)

posted Jul 8, 2018, 7:06 AM by Matt Gardi

This week features a great mix of favorites along with some new acts, and new compilations and variations on some of your favorites...at Bowery Station... your home for great live music in Apalachicola!

And it kicks off with a fun one...

Wednesday, July 11 - Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish.  As most of you know, our Open Mic makes for a fun evening of a variety of talent giving their all on stage.  And as many of you know, the tips for the performers on stage always go to a charity.  So at the last Open Mic, we decided to have the tips go to the victims of the Eastpoint fire, and will continue to do so through the month of July Open Mics.  Then, Dave Cerrato gets on stage and says that he and his wife Christy will match all the tips generated at Open Mic through the entire month.  Well, we were pleased to announce that that week alone generated $455!!  Thanks to all the musicians and customers that made for such a great night, and many thanks to the Cerratos, whose generous offer stands for the next few coming weeks!!  So let's make it a good few weeks, come on out and play your hearts out.

Thursday, July 12 - Debut Alert!  We are pleased to welcome Few Miles South for a show from 6-9pm!  Few Miles South is an indie country and southern rock band currently based in Georgia and brings their own unique sound into Apalachicola as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.  This male/female duo offers complimentary vocals that are accented through their well written originals.  This will be one that they will be talking about around the beer cooler in the morning....  

Friday, July 13 - McCall Chapin returns to the stage for an afternoon show from 4-6pm.  This young talent opened up Chickfest 2018, and for a reason.  She is a bright star in the high level of talent in Tallahassee, who not only has an impressive voice, but can be noted for her well written songs as well. Then, house and Apalachicola favorites, the TurkeyBasters bring on one of their signature performances from 7-10pm.  Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow always put on a fun, energetic show usually reserved for bigger daytime events in Apalachicola.  But now, we present this dynamic duo on a Friday night, so expect a full house of rabble rousers singing along to the TurkeyBasters!!

Saturday, July 14 - This defines a fun day of mashups of some known, and some newbies!  First, rising star Clayton Mathis hits the stage with friend Eric Mason for an afternoon show from 3-5:30pm.  While similar, each of these guys have their own unique style, that compliment their shows.  Along with a range of covers from country, to folk, to rock, these guys each have composed some great originals that the crowd calls out for.  This will be a great way to lead into our evening show....ladies and gents... fasten your seatbelts as The Ruckus hits the BS stage to raise a little Cain from 6:30-9:30pm.  This compilation of Lawrence Bertoli, Matt Law, Steve Henley, Woody Jenkins and Ted Cobena, some of who have made their own name on the BS stage in many forms, are ready willing and able to rock out a Saturday in Apalach as they make a new name known... The Ruckus, no holds barred good times rockin' from some 60s classics and on through some fun originals....don't say we didn't warn you! 

Thanks again to all the musicians that grace our stage, and thanks to you hungry live music fans that support what we are doing here in the little hamlet of Apalachicola, bringing a wide variety of talent to the stage in a casual, music appreciation environment with icy cold OCBC beer.

Also...we are so excited about this year's ApalachOktoberfest 2018... what a line up.  In conjunction with our friends at Oyster City Brewing Company, with support from 13 Mile Seafood, Sportsman's Lodge, and Oyster Radio, we are excited to present .... the likes of .... The Mulligan Brothers, The Currys, Clayton Mathis, Shaw Davis and the Black Ties, Boo Radley, Sticky Too, The Bo Spring Band, Matt Law & the Usual Suspects, Johnny Barbato, The TurkeyBasters, and Ten Pound Pancake!  Stay tuned into www.bowerystation.us for details as they develop!  Tickets are ...well... freakin' FREE!  Come one, come all!  But plan ahead now....

Bowery Station Music Schedule (July 3 -7)

posted Jul 1, 2018, 6:28 AM by Matt Gardi

This week is a little mix up of our days open, so folks and fans, pots and pans...look closely to plan for your favorite shows... 

First, we celebrate Independence Day on July 3rd in Apalachicola... so to that end... Bowery Station is pleased to present this Tuesday (Yup, Open this TUESDAY!)....

Tuesday, July 3 - Melissa Bowman kicks off the day from 2:30-4:30 with one of her signature energetic performances.  This firecracker of a female vocalist can belt it out, while backin' it with boot stompin' and serious rhythmic guitar... when Melissa hits the stage.. it's on!  Then, who better to celebrate American Independence with than Sticky Too as they join us from 5-8:30 right on up to the fireworks!  Tim and Jay harmonize like the best of 'em, and back it with intricate lead and rhythm guitar through a set list of good old rock and roll, americana, blues and oldies.  These guys love playing and get the crowd jumping every time they step on the stage... now that's a great day and way to celebrate freedom!

Wednesday, July 4th - CLOSED for the 4th.  Cook up some burgers with the buds and raise an icy cold OCBC (You can get 'em in cans at the brewery now!) around the grill!  See ya next week for Open Mic once again.

Thursday, July 5 - Shaw Davis and the Black Ties return to Apalachicola for a roof raising show from 6-8:30pm.  An artist quickly becoming a legend in the southeast, Shaw lit up the town a few months back with a spectacular performance that had even Ellis Seawright suggesting Shaw was the best guitar player he had ever seen.  Rock and Blues Muse has this to say.... "Dynamism, precision, and outright fury. It’s like a three-pronged sonic offensive – the guitar pierces, the bass rattles, and the drums batter. For fans of the heavier end of blues rock, it’s a beating your eardrums will gladly take."  (Take note: Shaw is not a listening room type of show.)  They have opened for and shared the stage with some of the nations and South Florida’s most respected blues-rock artists such as Albert Castiglia, Matt Schofield, GE Smith, JP Soars, and Mike Zito.  Throughout their shows, the band plays a high-energy mix of originals as well as renditions of covers from some of their greatest influences like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cream, and many other blues-rock giants.  This defines making Thursdays the New Fridays!

Friday, July 6 - Garnet and Soul are back for a soulful show from 7-10pm.  Mary Ann and the boys put on a show that ranges from old time classics to contemporary hits, showcasing one of the most dynamic female vocalists in the region.  Backed by horns, keys, and masterful percussion, Mary Ann always captivates the audience, and will have them singing along and dancing by the end of the evening.  It's the perfect fit for a Friday night in Apalachicola!

Saturday July 7 - Savanna Leigh Bassett is back in the house with one of her upbeat, energetic performances from 3-5:30pm.  Joining us from Jacksonville, Savanna is a powerful guitarist that can sing your favorite Country hits mixed in with her own well written originals.  Then, the South Munroe Band featuring Bill Pandolfi returns for a show from 6:30-9:30pm.  Bill and the boys take you on a trip from country through the blues with a side helping of sounds of the south, in a style that has every generation tune in to the show.  Some of the most talented musicians in one place....this will be a fun Saturday night.

Now that's a fun week, again please take note that we will be OPEN Tuesday the 3rd, and CLOSED Wednesday July 4th. 

And again, thank you to everyone that comes on in and supports our efforts to provide Apalachicola with a variety of top talent for your listening enjoyment!

Also, plan ahead for this years ApalachOktoberfest 2018 on Oct 5, 6 and 7th.  In conjunction with our friends at Oyster City Brewing Company, we are proud to present a fantastic line up during this three day event which includes: The Mulligan Brothers, The Currys, Clayton Mathis, Shaw Davis and the Black Ties, Boo Radley, Sticky Too, The Bo Spring Band, Matt Law & the Usual Suspects, Johnny Barbato, The TurkeyBasters, and Ten Pound Pancake!  Stay tuned for more details, and don't forget you can always find out who is playing at music.bowerystation.us!

Bo Spring Band ruled on Saturday night like never before.  It seems each time they play they can take it to a new level, and don't forget they will be back on Saturday, July 28 for a show directly before our August break!

But there is plenty of great live music in store for the summer before then, let's take a look at this week!

Wednesday, June 27 - Spotlight on the Mic from 5:30-6:15 features "Them Jacksons."  Them Jacksons is not your average rock band! Combining family time and rock n roll, Them Jacksons love to rock as a family. Taylor who is 12, sings and plays bass. Brody, who just turned 10 plays drums with more passion then most seasoned rockers. Dad, simply does his best to keep up on guitar.  This will be a unique show of young talent for the Spotlight on the Mic.  Then, Open Mic runs from 6-8ish and as always all levels of talent are welcomed and appreciated with tips for performers going to charity.  This week, we had planned to continue our support of Janine Gedmin and the Apalachicola Riverkeeper, but Janine has asked we turn our attention to the victims of the Eastpoint fire, and that we will.  So come on out for an evening of great talent while supporting members of our community.

Thursday, June 28 -  Boooooooooooo!  Boo Radley joins us from 6-9pm for what is the perfect fit for a Thursday night in Apalachicola as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.  Patty and Michael always create a music appreciation environment with their attention grabbing vocals and skillful guitar that takes us on a tour of well written originals, all of which weave a tale defining their own style.  It's been dubbed "New 850 Americana" as they lead the region in a sound that finds it's roots in a variety of genres that this area of the country is known for.

Friday, June 29 -  Cierra Skye joins us for an afternoon show from 4-6pm.  This gifted female vocalist brings a soulful and jazzy feel to her shows and is a young talent that commands attention from the minute she steps on stage.  Then, wrapping up their international tour with a final show at Bowery Station, we are pleased to welcome back Grammy Award winning Belle and the Band for a show from 7-10pm.  The individuals in this ensemble are arguably some of the most gifted musicians in the South East, but combined they offer a heartfelt folk and Americana feel that is hard to experience anywhere else.  As always, it is a rare occurrence that we can coordinate schedules to get these folks on stage, so do not miss this show!

Saturday, June 30 - Tyler James Arnold joins us from 3-5pm bringing an afternoon of his unique style of roots americana, wrapped up in a little swamp folk that is a style all his own.  An extremely talented guitarist, Tyler has mastered the art of the perfect amount of well timed sampling to provide backing for his intricate solos.  Tyler is one of the rare soloists that can fill the room with energy all by himself which will make for a great Saturday afternoon!  Then, get ready for some Rockabilly as Pope Paul and the Illegals return all the way from California for a show from 6:30-9:30pm!  This trio of talented gents anchored ApalachOktoberfest 2017 and had the crowd hoppin' from start to finish.  From high energy swing and honky tonk, to their signature style and original rockabilly feel, Paul, John and Sal always light up the stage with unparalleled enthusiasm.

Keepin' the summer hot with great live music... and thanks again to all of you that support our efforts to bring a variety of top level talent to our humble venue!

See you at the show!

This upcoming week of live music sees some new faces, some folks we haven't seen in a while, and some Apalachicola favorites.....

Let's take a peek...

Wednesday, June 20 – Spotlight on the Mic this week will feature Pete Waddell and will start off the day from 5:30-6:15.  This new feature allows for developing artists to play a few more songs than at Open Mic, get a little more warmed up, and expand their repertoire. Pete has been joining us at Open Mic with his nylon string guitar, singing oldies and classics such as Louis Armstrong, so it should be a good Spotlight.  Then, BS Open Mics rolls from 6-8ish.   As always, tips for performers go to benefit a charity, and again this week and for the month of June, we are generating support for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper, by way of our friend Janine Gedmin who is seeking sponsorship for her 107 mile Rivertrek kayak trip in October!!  Janine is committed to the trek, and BS is committed to her.  So come on out and support her efforts … and the Apalachicola Riverkeeper!  

Thursday, June 21 - Debut Alert!  Payton Smith joins us for a show from 6-9pm.  Payton Smith first unlocked the gateway of Nashville’s, “Music Row”, in 2014 at the tender age of 14, when he impressed renowned producer, Buddy Cannon(Kenny Chesney/Willie Nelson), with his guitar playing, vocal, and songwriting talent.  During the last four years he has gained attention from music executives, publishers, and creative minds that have acknowledged his vision of becoming a force in country music.  He was also recently invited to participate in the upcoming 2018 CMA music festival in Nashville which is earning buzz and excitement from fans.  This festival attracts over 250,000 country music followers annually and is the perfect venue to kick off summer.  This will be a DO NOT MISS show from this young upcoming talent that continues our trend of making Thursdays the New Fridays!

Friday, June 22 - Another Debut Alert!  Colby Schieb joins us for an afternoon show from 4-6pm. Colby lays down a funky soulful vibe during his shows, mixed in with a little reggae which will make for a fun Friday afternoon.  Then, it is our distinct pleasure to welcome back singer/songwriters Charlie and Dana Black for a show from 7-10pm.  Composers of a multitude of #1 hits for the likes of George Straight, Alan Jackson, Reba Mcentire, and Anne Murray, Charlie and Dana are professional performers that always put on a dynamic show that commands attention with their well written originals.  It has been a while since we have been able to coordinate schedules with this talented duo, and we are blessed to have them join us for a Friday evening on the BS stage in Apalach.

Saturday,  June 23 - Slim Fatz brings his unique style of blues to the BS stage for an afternoon show from 3-5pm.  Slim lays down the licks on his guitar as only he can do, accompanied by his vocals that make one reflect on the earliest days of the blues.  Then, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, The Bo Spring Band hits the stage from 6:30-9:30pm.  Few put on a show with the intensity and talent level of the quartet, and while their covers can get the crowd dancing, their originals are clearly the tunes that draw in the crowds.  It is sure to be a barn burner this Saturday night, as Bo and the gang fill the room with a variety of genres and energy!  

Again, thank you to all of you that continue to support live music at Bowery Station.  We are thankful to have the opportunity to bring you the best in talented performers, and we couldn't do it without your continued support.

See you at the show!

Friday, June 8 - What do you get when you mix a little beach, a little bayou, a touch of Country, a spoonful of americana and a dash of folk... you betcha... Low Country Boyle is back on stage from 7-10pm.  It's always a lively show, with energy that fills the venue as this trio offers diverse vocals coupled with a multitude of stringed instruments swapped amongst the band.  It's a perfect fit for an Apalachicola Friday!

Saturday, June 9 - Savanna Leigh Bassett joins us in the afternoon for a show from 3-5:30pm.  Savanna was a featured artist in Chickfest 2018 and stole the show.  Her performances are dynamic, powerful, and captivating.  This young talent has a remarkably powerful voice that is accented by her percussive guitar style.  Then, back in the house comes the one and only Jerry Thigpen Trio from 6:30-9:30 for one of their jamming shows of rock, blues and oldies.  This Trio knows how to put on a memorable show every time they play, and this will be one of the last times you will have to catch them for the summer, as Jerry takes off for his northern tour.  This is a Saturday packed with talent and we at the BS music factory are excited about hosting Savanna and Jerry.

Sunday, June 10 - Once again, join us for our new summer hours, and check out what a great beach we have, as BS is closed on summer Sundays.

Summer is fully upon us, and with it Bowery Station is pleased to move into our "summer hours!"  That's right, during June and July you might notice a few changes to our days, nights and hours of operation.  First, we will now be open Wed-Sat. (Taking an extra day of rest on Sundays)  Further, you may have already noticed our hours are from 2-9pm… “or until the music stops.”  Well, it’s summer and you will find that everything slides a little later, more than likely a wee past 9pm on most summer nights…. As is clearly evident by our scheduled music times.  (Just keeping you all on your toes!)  Also, take note that we will be closed the entire month of August…even live music enthusiast need some time to reflect on what a great year it was, and let the anticipation build for the year to come.

And none exemplify the merge of the genuine country music genre with a hip fresh sound quite like Ryan Broshear. Born and raised on an Oxford Ohio farm, he is as charismatic and gifted as it gets. Ryan is carving out a successful career by writing and singing traditional leaning country music with a brilliant modern edgy feel.  Bowery Station is pleased to continue our efforts to make Thursdays the New Friday in Apalachicola, and love doing so with this do not miss show!

Friday, June 1 – Somebody say “Awwww…Sh**!” as Johnny Barbato rolls into town for an afternoon show from 4-6pm.  Johnny is a self proclaimed “Love song singing... Summmanabeatch!”  Get ready to kick your weekend off right with an “intimate” show as this Gulf Coast legend and Florabama mainstay takes you on a tour of blues rock and Americana with some of the best originals you will hear!  Then, Garnet and Soul return for a show from 7-10pm!  Mary has a sultry voice backed by keys, horns and percussion that brings on a wide range of genres with a captivating enthusiasm.  From soul to jazz, funk a little R&B with a sprinkling of Country Garnet and Soul has become one of the region’s most sought after acts and it is a blessing to have them join us at Bowery Station. 

Saturday, June 2 – Here is a one of a kind day… first we open early at noon for a big day … then Cat Braaten takes the stage from 2-4pm to get us in the mood for…  a wedding.  That’s right, BS is poised to host a wedding that will rival any royal wedding you have ever witnessed.  Patty and Michael of Boo Radley fame will be tying the knot at 5pm in a style and manner that only they could.  And… you are invited!  Patty and Michael wanted to share their special day with all of you that love and appreciate them, not only for their gift of music they share with us, but for the fine upstanding giving folks they are!  Then, get ready to shake your booty off, as our happy couple has selected one of the funkiest, soulful, get down and dance your behind off groups to hit the BS stage… Tallahassee HighTest!  Directly after the ceremony at approximately 5:30… it’s game on as HighTest starts one of their all original, improvised jams into the Apalachicola evening!  Horns, Keys, and powerful heartfelt vocals are the trademark of HighTest and no one can sit still once the fuse is lit!  Come on out and celebrate with one of the finest couples to grace our stage…Patty and Michael!  Boooooooooooooooooooo!

Sunday, June 3 – Get some salt and sand in your beers as we will see ya on the Beach as summer hours officially kick in!

Once again thanks to all you live music enthusiasts that continue to support our musicians that give it their all on our stage.  Without your support, we at Bowery Station could not continue to bring such a diverse and high level of talent to Apalachicola for your enjoyment.

See you at the show!

Friday, May 25 - Here is a double decker...Josh Watson joins us for a solo show from 3:30-6pm.  Josh has a sound that the listener tunes into through solid guitar skills and great vocals that span the genres.  Listeners always find themselves singing along...which is a great way to lead into our evening show.  That's right, Bowery Station is pleased to welcome back Rebel Union from 7-10pm.  This top rated Nashville act has squeezed Bowery Station into their tour schedule once again, and as always we are expecting a packed house.  There are few up and coming acts that have the dynamics of this duo of couples, leading the music scene in Nashville and beyond with their originals as well as their live performances.  Their shows captivate the audience for the duration as the vocal harmonies impress the most critical observer.  This will be a "get in early" and do not miss event!

Saturday, May 26 - Cat Braaten returns for one of her signature shows from 3-6pm!  Cat is arguably one of the most popular and talented female performers in the region and covers a wide range of artists, but her originals tell some amazing tales.  Then, if you are ready for it, the Bill Pandolfi Trio returns for a show from 6:30-9:30pm. Bill and the boys take you on a trip from Sinatra through the blues as only they can do, in a style that has every generation tune in to the show.  

Sunday, May 27 - Tyler James Arnold comes out for a Sunday afternoon show from 3-5pm.  Tyler has the bayou written all over his show, with a down home feel that illustrates his skillful riffs, and soulful vocals, and Tyler graces his shows with his joy of playing tunes for the crowd.  Then, get ready to Boooooooo!  Patty and Michael of Boo Radley come on out for a show from 5:30-8:30pm leading into the week before their nuptials which will occur at Bowery Station.  Having developed a huge Apalach following, due primarily to their incredibly written originals, and powerful vocal harmonies, the duo is backed by Michael's top level guitar skills making a show of New 850 Americana, a genre they have developed and lead so many others in.  This will be a great Sunday afternoon for a long weekend, come on out and enjoy.

Thanks again to all of you that come out and support live music at Bowery Station, and thanks as well to those musicians that give their all to help make Bowery Station and Apalach a developing music meca on the Gulf Coast.  See you at the show!
