The region anxiously awaits the onslaught of summer... and we at BS have gone into the kitchen and stewed up a week that welcomes summer and it's visitors well... with some of the tastiest live music to satiate the hungriest enthusiast.. with a big helping of Nashville talent heading south to join us at BS!

Grab a fork and dig into this as we lead into Memorial Day weekend....

Wednesday, May 23 - BS Open Mics rolls from 6-8ish.  Recent weeks have brought in a treasure trove of new musicians showing their stuff on the BS stage with a range of styles and genres.  It's all about developing musicians and the crowd is welcoming to all levels of talent and ability!  As always, tips for performers go to benefit a charity, and this week and for the next few following 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!  Keep a look out for a fun event in June that will also support our friend Janine!

Thursday, May 24 - John Sutton... yeah that's what I said... thee John Sutton is coming to Apalachicola from Nashville to make Thursdays the New Fridays for a show from 6-8:30pm.  John has a contagious energy and pushes it out in his performances that showcase his well written songs that are frequent flyers in the BS house mix.  Oft times folks ask... "Who is this?"  Sounds amazing!!"  Well, we are happy to present him live on stage on a Thursday evening in Apalach!  

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!

Thanks to all the ladies that came out and shared their incredible talents at Chickfest 2018, making it a fantastic event for our community to enjoy.  Folks are already talking about next year's event.  As we always say...stay tuned... it only gets better!

So what do we have in store for this week...let's take a peek under the hood.

Wednesday, May 16 - Spotlight on the Mic starts at 5:30 with the Real Rob.  This new feature to lead us into Open Mic is a new feature that lets us introduce a band or artist for a one set show.  Rob is a Jazz, Blues and Folk musician currently based out of New Orleans.  He'll be playing till about 6:15, leading us into Open Mic which will continue till 8ish ...as we like to say.  All levels of talent are welcomed and appreciated, so come on out and bring a smile to the stage and have some fun. 

Thursday, May 17 - Hot Damn Duo joins us for their debut from 6-8:30pm!  Making Thursdays the New Fridays,  "Hot Damn" is the duo act of husband and wife team, Norm and Debbie Pelletier with the true sound of a full band. As dedicated musicians playing over 200 gigs a year, you can expect a professional, fun and talent filled show.  Norm plays a smoking lead guitar and Debbie plays a zeta standup bass. Both are vocalists complimenting each other with harmonies. They boast a repertoire of over 1,000 songs.  You will hear country music from today's Top 40 to country songs made famous as far back as 40 years ago; you can also expect to hear songs ranging from the 50's, 60's and 70's classic rock. Great to catch Hot Damn Duo on their travels through to Nashville.

Friday, May 18 - Bruce Graybeal returns for an afternoon show from 3-5:30pm.  Bruce brings his trademark smile, a twelve string and a fun set list sure to please just about any crowd.  It's been a while since Bruce has made the trip to Apalach, so we expect a fun Friday afternoon!  Then, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Southern Flood rolls into Bowery Station for a hard hitting jam session of Rock N Roll from 7-10pm.  When Hobson and the boys get it wound up, it is on!  The best of good old roots rock and roll, and an ever expanding set list that gets you up and dancing, Southern Flood deals the goods on a Friday night!

Saturday, May 19 - Just off her stint at Chickfest, Savanna Leigh Bassett returns for a full show from 3-5pm.  If you missed her at Chickfest, you more than likely heard about her dynamic performance that had a packed house cheering.  With a mix of Country, and contemporary classics, Savanna pushes her energy into her well played guitar and powerful vocals.... and who better to open for .... The Bo Spring Band!  That's right, Bo is back from 6:30-9:30 for one of his hold your hat on, face melting shows that some have been compared to the old days at Toad's Place, or CBGBs.  Well, it's Bo Spring at Bowery Station... and That's a double pile of BS!  

Sunday, May 20 - Matt Law returns for a great Sunday afternoon from 4-8pm.  Matt, a talented guitarist, who does it all from slide, to blues, rock and a mix of old classics, takes you on a journey through the years and genres, and has some well written originals as well.  Few can make Sunday afternoons happen like Matt, so come on out and enjoy this diverse performer as he brings sunshine to a Sunday in Apalach!  Frequently joined by local bassist Marc Grove, you can always expect a special show with Matt Law. 

Don't hurt yourself getting to every show, walk slow and deliberately, but make it out to some of the best live music in this part of the country.  Again, thanks to those of you that support Bowery Station, and the musicians that grace our stage.  Thanks as well to those musicians that put in all the work and effort to hone their skills so that they can provide such great tunes on the BS stage!

Last week's Tom Petty Tribute turned out to be one special evening, thank you again to Brian Bowen, Cat Braaten and Bo Spring for their tremendous performance, and dedicated effort to put on such an amazing performance.  This week will prove to be another special week of impressive live music....

Ready, Set... Go!!

BS Operating systems have run an upgrade and with it you will notice a new feature at most of our Open Mics known as "Spotlight on the Mic."  The idea being that many performers would like to expand beyond the normal 3 songs they play at Open Mic, and frequently small bands would like to showcase their skills but it is cumbersome to switch over a lot of gear between performers.  To that end, "Spotlight on the Mic" starts on Wednesdays at 5:30 and let's an act play 30-45 minutes to lead us into BS Open Mic.  If you, or someone you knows would like to sign up for a date to be on Spotlight on the Mic, email us at BS@bowerystation.us.

Wednesday, May 9 - Our first "Spotlight on the Mic" features the Jenessa Akin Band from 5:30-6:15. Jenessa Akin plays the music of Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Bill Withers, Jimi Hendrix, and more. With roots in Motown and  Blues, Jenessa and her father Monte bring an intimate, straightforward view of classic hits. It's a pleasure to have this young talent appear for our first Spotlight on the Mic at Bowery Station.  Then Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish.  All tips for Open Mic performers this week will go towards the Cricket Fund for Beyond Diagnosis that helps women in Franklin and Gulf County that have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  This is in lead up to our Chickfest 2018 on Friday and Saturday of this week...

Thursday,  May 10 - Sticky Too returns to help us make Thursdays the New Fridays from 6-8:30!  One of the most talented duos to hit the BS stage, Tim and Jay bring tight vocal harmonies and great guitar skills to a set list that can please any crowd.  Built for Thursdays in the Bowery, it's going to be a great way to heat up the stage for a big event as we head into the weekend!

Get ready folks, because Chickfest 2018 is going to be better than ever!!!  This annual event that pays tribute to female artists that have graced our stage has expanded into a two day event filled with incredibly gifted ladies!

Friday, May 11 - We open Chickfest 2018 with regional favorite Ashley Feller in the afternoon from 4-6pm.  Ashley has a great set list of covers, but shares her well written originals as well.  She brings a contagious smile to every one of her shows and we are excited to have her open up this year's event.  Then, joining us from Indiana, Natalie Gaza brings with her violinist Jennifer Cimbala and percussionist Wendy Whitmore for a show from 7-10pm.  Having graced venues such as Chicago's House of Blues, Natalie was able to fit Apalachicola and Bowery Station into her travels a few months back, and we knew immediately that she would be a great act for Chickfest 2018.  Natalie infuses powerful introspective lyrics with a unique folk/rock musical energy. Her multi-layered song structure and skilled guitar work deliver a memorable listener experience.  This trio will provide a night to remember here in Apalach!

Saturday, May 12 - Chickfest 2018 continues, starting early at 1pm with youthful Tallahassee talent McCall Chapin, the day continues with talent that includes Cat Braaten, the Adventures of Annabelle Lyn, Savanna Leigh Bassett, Sarah Moranville,  and the Krickets!  The entire day provides a variety of styles and genres from country, folk, bluegrass and americana, but clearly is a showcase of some of the most impressive female talent on the Gulf Coast.  Plan for a full day so as to not miss out on any of these spectacular acts.  Bowery Station is blessed to have these ladies join us in Apalachicola for this exciting, and what will prove to be memorable, multi-day event. 

Sunday, May 13 - Dothan's Dave Dale returns to Apalachicola for a show from 4-8pm.  Dave always puts on a friendly show of country, rock, southern rock, and americana, and can make any crowd sing along.  It doesn't take long to catch Dave's case of enthusiasm, and it's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Apalachicola!

Now that's a weekly lineup, so plan accordingly!  Again, our heartfelt thanks go out to the musicians that grace our stage, and help us keep live music alive, and to those of you that support our efforts in our small town of Apalach!

See you at the show!

Friday, April 6 - Cat Braaten opens the day from 3-5pm.  Cat, a featured artist in our upcoming Chickfest 2018, is a unique female vocalist that plays a precussive guitar through a setlist of covers and thought provoking originals.  Then, heads up..DEBUT ALERT!  Mobile, Alabama based singer / songwriter, Ryan Balthrop joins us for a Friday performance from 6:30-9:30pm.  Ryan has been writing and performing with various bands for nearly 20 years along the Gulf Coast and around the Southeastern United States, with Caribbean and European tours also under his belt. In recent years he has stayed closer to home and focused on writing and recording at MEKA Studios.  Possessing a natural stage presence, a strong soulful voice and a quirky sense of humor, Balthrop continues to impress audiences in a diverse number of ways. His style is a blend of Island Blues, Folk, Funk, Reggae, and Improv.  It's rare Bowery Station puts on a soloist on a Friday evening, but Balthrop will answer the challenge handily.

Well, we can be pretty confident the cold is behind us, as the doors to Bowery Station are wide open these days, and a light spring breeze has been melding with the fresh variety of live music wafting through the air...

So who is on deck as we glide into April....

Wednesday, March 28 - Paul Boyle returns for an afternoon show from 3-5pm.  Paul plays some great acoustic americana and rock that has everyone singing along.  Then, BS Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish.  This weekly event has been a mainstay in local entertainment for years, and has fostered the development of numerous performers as they gain their confidence and stage presence.  All levels of talent are welcomed and appreciated.  Get in early for a seat as the last few weeks have been packed houses!!!  As always, tips for performers from BS Open Mic go to charity, and this week we will be raising money for the Franklin County Humane Society.  So come on out and belt out a tune or two for a great cause and great fun.

Thursday, March 29 - Common Taters return for one of their relaxed groove performances from 6-8:30 as we continue to make Thursdays the new Fridays at Bowery Station.  Mike and Jan always bring a few turnips along for the ride, as they take us through a set list from Dead to Zydeco and beyond.  Common Taters always make the night fun as they share their joy of performing.

Friday, March 30 - DEBUT ALERT!  Luke Wilmoth starts off the day from 3-5:30 as he joins us for his first show at BS!  Luke, a recipient of the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award is a talented musician that puts on a rock/alternative show with a touch of pop and funk to boot.  Then, welcome the return of the Highbeams from 7-10pm.  The Highbeams have quickly grown to be a favored act in this neck of the woods as this trio of male vocalists put on a mostly original show with great vocal harmonies.  Quickly gaining notoriety in the southeast, the Highbeams draw a crowd and keep them throughout the evening...deservedly so.

Saturday, March 31 - This will prove to be a day of local favorites as Clayton Mathis joins us from 3-5pm.  Mathis, brewmaster at OCBC, also has developed into a solid performer with a show of americana, a touch of country, and originals that include the popular "Chesapeake Girl!"  Mathis puts on a light hearted performance that makes the crowd feel like they are sitting in his living room.  Then, back from their recent tour of Memphis, the Bo Spring Band hits the stage from 6:30-9:30pm.  Bo, joined in force by his wife Lauren of Kricket fame, percussionist Tim Dutrow (arguably one of the finest on the Gulf Coast) and hand model Randon Hicks on the stand up fiddle, never let the crowd down as they put on a vocal based show of great originals and your favorite covers.  Few stay in their seats once these folks get on a roll!

Sunday, April 1 - Zac Brown joins forces with Jimmy Buffett for an all day performance as they debut on the BS stage!  Brown and Buffett have been trying for years to get on the Bowery Station schedule, so they should be set to put on a show like never before.

Ok....yes, that is an April Fool's joke... speaking of...

Gill Autrey will start the day off with a show of spoken word stories as no other can present from 2:30-3:15pm.  Gill, usually joining us on the Spanish Guitar for a quick classical performance, is recovering from hand surgery so will evolve his performance into sharing some short stories with us.  Those of us that know of Gill's storytelling skills will be looking forward to this show.  Then, following Gill on our First Sunday event will be Randy Mims as he takes us on a tour of a touch of classical on flute and recorder, but lays out some of the best 60's and 70s classic on his 6 and 12 string guitars from 3:30-5:30.  Then, First Sunday mainstay Slim Fatz lays down his unique style of blues from 5:30-7:30pm.  Few have developed such a following and style as Slim, so come on out and enjoy this cherished artist for a great First Sunday at Bowery Station.

We again would like to extend our gratitude to all of you, and thank you for your support of our efforts to bring a wide variety of music and performers to our area.  Without your continued support this wouldn't be possible.  On our behalf and the behalf of the musicians that grace our stage, thanks for coming to the show!!
