Bowery Station Music Schedule (Jan 16 - 20)

posted Jan 15, 2019, 8:19 AM by Matt Gardi

Wow, we can't thank everyone enough for coming out to our special event last night...on a Monday no less... Kyshona, Shannon LaBrie, Lauren Spring, and Emily Stuckey really knocked one out of the park for a very special night to a standing room only crowd.  Thank you to them, and thank you to those of you that came on out and supported original live music at Bowery Station.

But we are staring down another great week as we approach Oyster Cook-Off at your home for the best live music in Apalachicola!

Here we go!

Wednesday, Jan 16 - BS Open Mic is back on from 6-8ish... Matt Gardi hosts and has been usually starting earlier these days, as he gets his own set list in shape for Snowbird season.  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this month we are raising funds for the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department in concert with the Oyster Cook-Off scheduled mid month.

Thursday, Jan 17 - Josh Watson makes Thursdays the New Fridays with a show from 6-9pm.  Josh is a powerhouse vocalist and fantastic guitar player, so come on out and enjoy a gifted performer that can please any crowd.

Friday, Jan 18 - Savanna Leigh Bassett plays from 3-5:30pm.  Savanna is the real deal when it comes to female performers, as she mixes originals with tried and her tried and true set list of your favorites.  Then, The Living Street returns from 7-10pm.  These guys rocked it out last winter for a couple of packed house shows, joining us from Pittsburgh, PA, as they quickly drew a crowd and held it with their high energy performance.  Compared by the audience to The Currys and The Highbeams, The Living Street have a great sound of their own that commands attention and share their gift of songwriting with an eager audience.

Saturday, Jan 19 - Come on out for a 5K road race at Waterfront park to start your day at 8AM.  Then, Bill Pandolfi and Eric Pfuefer play a funky and rockin' afternoon set from 2-5pm.  Comprised of half of Ten Pound Pancake, I guess we might call them Five Pound, but either way we know it will be a great afternoon of jumping live music.  Then, what better way to rock out a Saturday night of Oyster Cook-Off than with the Bo Spring Band from 6:30-10pm.  Few match the energy, creativity, and talent as this foursome, as they always pack the house with eager Bo Peeps that appreciate and sing along to their originals as well as creative version of your fav covers.

Sunday, Jan 20 - It's the Turkeybasters featuring Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow from 5-8pm.  These two legends have combined to develop a show that goes unparalleled for most duos.  Melissa's energetic and charismatic guitar and vocals, meet the incomparable Tim Dutrow on percussion for what has become to be known as nothing short of epic every time they step on stage.  

Now that's a fun week of original live music... great folks, and pure professional performers!

See you at the show!

Our friends from up north are flocking down to join us on the Forgotten Coast, and we here at Bowery Station want to make sure they get welcomed with the best live music known to mankind.  So to that end we have put together a fantastic week to welcome the incoming flock and keep the local geese goosed on tunes.

Here is a powerful week, culminating with a special Monday evening show featuring Kyshona and Shannon LaBrie with special guests Emily Stuckey and Lauren Spring of the Krickets...

Wednesday, Jan 9 - BS Open Mic is back on from 6-8ish... Matt Gardi hosts and has been usually starting earlier these days, as he gets his own set list in shape for Snowbird season.  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this month we are raising funds for the Apalachicola Volunteer Fire Department in concert with the Oyster Cook-Off scheduled mid month.

Thursday, Jan 10 - Joining us from Sopchoppy, Rick Ott returns for an afternoon show from 3-5:30pm.  Rick loves to masterfully play all the old classics you know and love, and is a musician that loves to share his joy of performing with the crowd.  Then, guitarmen Bill Pandolfi and Wayne Britts come in for a show from 6-9pm as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays.  Both of these guys are legends in the region, and are masters of the six string, combined we know it will be a very special evening at Bowery Station. 

Friday, Jan 11 - Sarah Moranville steps on stage for an afternoon performance from 3-6pm.  With tremendous vocal range, Sarah's set list ranges spans the generations, and her solid guitar skills keep your feet tapping.  There is a reason Sarah is a featured artist in our Chickfest, so come enjoy a great afternoon.  Then, Few Miles South returns for a Friday night from 7-10pm.  Few Miles South is bringing back that classic country sound and honky-tonk atmosphere” (Skope Magazine). Created by south GA raised Blake English and Los Angeles native Tori Lund, fans of traditional country twang, pedal steel guitar and honest  story telling are in for a treat. 

Saturday, Jan 12 - Cat Braaten and Josh Watson are getting together as duo for an afternoon performance from 3-5:30pm.  Each of these musicians have their own style and following here on the Forgotten Coast, so when they team up....brace yourself for a serious dynamic performance of style, substance and talent. Then, another group we had to unfortunately postpone because of Hurricane issues, Wakulla Rising returns for what is sure to be a roof raising evening of roots swamp funk and down home rippin' blues and rock from 6:30-10pm.  When Susan and the boys get groovin' there is no stopping them, and the crowd responds in turn.  Set your reminders because it has been a while since Wakulla Rising has brought the jam to the Bowery and Apalachicola, and we are excited to get their unique vibe, and tremendous talent back on the stage!

Sunday, Jan 13 - Blessed to have the Adventures of Annabelle Lyn join us for a Sunday evening show from 5-8pm.  We had a taste of talent when Holly Riley joined in on last Friday's show with her fiddle, but when these three female vocalists hit the stage with fiddle, stand up bass, guitar, mandolin, banjo and fantastic three part harmony live music lovers sit in awe.  These talented ladies have recently opened for the likes of The Wood Brothers, and America, and we are excited to have them join us for a Sunday afternoon.

SPECIAL EVENT MONDAY!
Monday, January 14.  
Shannon Labrie & Kyshona w/ Lauren Spring and Emily Stuckey of the Krickets
Doors open at 5pm, show starts at 6pm.  Admission: FREE...(This special event is Bowery Station's way of saying thank you to all those from throughout the region that helped us get back on our feet after Hurricane Michael!)

We are opening our doors on a Monday for a very special performance by Shannon Labrie and Kyshona joined by Lauren Spring and Emily Stuckey of the Krickets from 6-9pm.  Nashville chanteuse Shannon LaBrie defies genre and brings to life insightful stories of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where uncertainty is certain. The Lincoln, NE native instantly became a favorite among music fans and critics alike with her powerful 2016 album War & Peace. With lead singles, "Alcohol," and "It's Political" the independent release reached inside the Top Ten on iTunes, Spotify's US viral chart and Triple A Radio charts. Famed music blogger Bob Lefsetz wrote, “This track affected me. Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed up, shoot-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.” Kyshona has mixed her love of story telling with the sound of her musical roots. Soulful, spiritual, at times guttural, Kyshona delivers an open honesty through her voice and lyrics. Her desire when she is performing is to connect with and take the audience on an emotional, soul stirring, musical journey.  The two are joined by Lauren Spring and Emily Stuckey of Kricket fame for what will be an evening to remember!

Ho, Ho, Ho and Merry Christmas!!  Santa has snuck down the chimney and left a great gift under the tree in the form of one fantastic week of live music to wrap up 2018 at Bowery Station!  So, after the feasts of roast beast, and strange use of mistletoe, grab the family and head on out to Bowery Station for a fun and festive holiday week, with live music rolling both days and evenings every day.

How's it shaping up?

Wednesday, Dec 26 - Cat Braaten kicks off the day from 2:30-5:30pm with one of her dynamic shows.  Cat brings impressively intriguing originals to the stage with her unique vocals, and rhythmic guitar style.  Then, Matt Gardi hosts Open Mic from 6-8ish.  This holiday week always has a great mix of regulars, and visitors, and as we always say....expect the unexpected.  As always, tips for performers go to support a local charity, this week we help out the SGI CAt Allies that work to spay and neuter feral cats in Apalach and on SGI!

Thursday, Dec 27 - Sarah Moranville joins us for a show from 3:30-6pm.  Sarah always brings a smile to the stage as well as a knack for entertaining any audience with her well chosen set list.  The warmth of her voice keeps the crowd's attention at every show!  Then, as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays, Bowery Station is pleased to welcome back the TurkeyBasters from 6:30-9:30pm!  Always part of anyone's holiday wish list, we all need a some basting this time of year, and no one is more up to the task than Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow, some of the area's most talented live performers!  This duo absolutely raises the rafters every time they step on stage with their energy and talent, sharing their enthusiasm with an eager audience.  Melissa gets the crowd singing along, dancing, and cheering to her commanding vocals and powerful guitar skills, as Tim impressive time keeps the feet tapping and the hands clappin'!  

Friday, Dec 28 - Clayton Mathis joins us for an afternoon set from 4-6:45pm.  Mathis brings a continually evolving set list that hits hard at the americana fan in all of us, but can surprise with tunes off the beaten track from old alt rock, a few 90's, and even a smattering of country classics and singalongs... all wrapped up in some of the best worst jokes ever.  Clayton also shares new originals as his creative spirit permeates every performance.  Then, we are excited to welcome Sticky Tea...Acoustic for a show from 7-10pm.  Tim and Jay of Sticky Too fame, bring with them percussion for a harder hitting sound, but still with a softer acoustic touch.  Arguably some of the best guitarists and harmonious acts on the Gulf Coast, Sticky Tea will be sure to put on a great Friday Holiday performance that will appeal to all generations!  Don't expect many if any breaks, as these guys play for real, they love the gigs, they love the crowd, and they love sharing their talent with an eager audience.  

Saturday, Dec 29 - An old school Bowery day is on deck, as Forgotten Coast Troubadour Brian Bowen comes on out for an afternoon show from 3-5:30pm.  Few performers can offer a true taste of both the music, but also the spirit of this area of the country.  Interlacing some of the most thoughtful and well written originals detailing life in these parts, Bowen always gets the crowd tuned into almost every song!  Then, somebody say... Awww Shit!!! as Johnny Barbato brings along with him his Lucky Doggs for a hard hitting night of blues, rock and americana that gets the joint jumpin' from 6:30-10pm.  Johnny and the Doggs interweave their irreverent love of life and person into their shows that make the whole venue part of the performance.  Few are as loved in these parts as Johnny Barbato and his band of Doggs, so make sure to get a seat early for what will be a memorable evening!

Sunday, Dec 30 - Bowery Station will be closed for a private function for dear friends.  This will allow all you hungry live music enthusiasts to rest up for ......

Monday, Dec 31 - (Yeah...Monday, we're open on a Monday, and yes we have a day packed with perfect live music for your end of year festivities!)
The day starts with Boo Radley with a special show from 3-6pm!  BOOOOOOOOOOO!   Patty and Michael are clearly one of Apalachicola's favorite performers, bringing with them a joy for performing like few others.  Known so well at BS, the house full of fans is frequently found singing along Boo Radley's original songs.  Vocal harmonies are backed by Michael's sound guitar work for a show of a genre they themselves have created... affectionately known throughout the region as New 850 Americana.  Then, get yourselves some dinner at one of the many fine Apalachicola dining establishments, get gussied up, put on the Top Hat and Tie, or favorite Tee shirt and come on back out for a show with Garnet & Soul from 8pm-12:05am. There are few bands that could offer such a perfect match for New Year's Eve.  Expect a jazzy and sultry start, and be ready for the tempo to pick up as the evening gets rolling, as Mary Ann gets into the groove and the boys start letting loose.  Of course, there will be a complimentary toast to welcome the New Year with the Champagne of beers..Miller High Life!...as is the Bowery Station tradition of course!!   We have a had a fantastic year of live music at Bowery Station, and we are pleased to wrap up such a year with one of the best.... Garnet & Soul!!

Merry Christmas to all, here is to looking forward to a great week, and a fantastic New Year...speaking of which, here are just a few of the special events we have lined up for the upcoming season.....

Monday, January 14th (Yes, MONDAY!)  We are opening our doors on a Monday for a very special performance by Shannon Labrie and Kyshona joined by Lauren Spring and Emily Stuckey of the Krickets from 6-9pm.  Nashville chanteuse Shannon LaBrie defies genre and brings to life insightful stories of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where uncertainty is certain.

Sunday, February 3 - (Superbowl Sunday)  SPAM Cook-Off 2019!   That's right folks, it's Bowery Station's 5th anniversary party, which is always accompanied by our annual SPAM Cook-Off.  Plan your dishes now, as this year's judges Eric Pfuefer, Johnny Barbato, Brian Bowen, Clayton Mathis and two time Champ Barbie Everett are eager to judge your entries.  The crowned winner will win a bar tab for two for the remainder of the day, rights to wear the coveted Blue Spam jacket while at BS, and a reserved bar stool for the duration of their reign as Champion for the year.  After the food festivities, Eric, Johnny, Brian, and Clayton will be mixing up a jam session for the remainder of the evening.  It will be great to have these top talents mash it up! 

Thursday, February 7 - A Tribute to The Beatles featuring local legends Brian Bowen, Cat Braaten and Bo Spring!  We have had this trio put on some knock out tributes before, but this time their collective forces pay homage to the Fab Four!  As many of you know, their shows have been standing room only and we expect this one to be as well, so plan accordingly.

Saturday, March 23 - SAUCE BOSS comes to Apalachicola!  That's right, the legendary Bill Wharton will be putting on a show on the Bowery Station stage from 6:45-9:30!  Legendary performer (as chronicled in Jimmy Buffett’s 1999 hit “I Will Play for Gumbo”) Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton brings his Florida slide guitar blues, his gumbo, and his own hot sauce to every multi-sensory performance. His show includes a culinary demonstration with audience stirring and sampling the gumbo. Sauce Boss is a powerhouse of energy with his one-man band.  Florida swamp-funk slide guitarist, Bill Wharton has been a musician for over a half a century. On his 1989 New Years Eve gig, Sauce Boss splashed a bottle of his Liquid Summer Hot Sauce into a huge pot of simmering gumbo, feeding the entire audience. The rest is history. 200,000 bowls later, he’s still feeding the masses for free! 


See you at the show!

Sunday, Dec 23 - Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house.... John Sutton will be stirring up a Sunday afternoon from 4-7pm.  Few can put on such an energetic solo show as our friend John Sutton.  Clearly an accomplished guitarist, John adds powerful vocals to his dynamic and well written originals.  His shows always captivate the audience, making for a great afternoon that any live music enthusiast will enjoy.

Here is to wishing everyone a Merry Christmas as we look forward to a New Year, and a season filled with more of the best live music on the Gulf Coast.

So here is what we have in store for a nice holiday week...

Wednesday, Nov 21 - BS Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish. Matt Gardi hosts and may kick things off early to get in the mood for a great evening, then the real talent...YOU...hits the stage.

Thursday, Nov 22 - Closed to give thanks!  Here is to a Happy Turkey day for one and all!

Friday, Nov 23 - This will be a fun day to get out and burn off the tryptophan. We start things off with the combo of Cat Braaten and Josh Watson from 3-6pm.  Both of these performers are great soloists, but they have been teaming up for a great duo lately and we are psyched to get these guys out for an afternoon to kick off a big weekend.  So if you're out shopping, maybe grabbing gifts at Riverside Merchantile, add some beer and music to your day's travels at Bowery Station.   Then, we welcome the Bo Spring Band to the stage from 7-10 for what will be sure to be a barn burner of a night.  So many folks are looking forward to a cut loose and put the storm, the cold weather, the very cold weather, and the blistering cold weather behind us....  so things will be smoking hot, as Bo, Lauren, Randon, and Tim put on one of their facemelting live music experiences as only they can.  Get in early for a seat.... the Bo Peeps will be out in force!

Saturday, Nov 24 - Bowery Station has a great line up for this particular day, as we wrap up the fall season, and slide into our short winter hibernation.  Sarah Moranville starts things off for us with a show from 3-5:30pm.   Sarah, one of the stars of Chickfest 2018 shares her unique vocals along with her attention grabbing guitar style.  With a set list that pleases almost every live music enthusiast, Sarah is a house and Apalach favorite for a reason and will create a great setting on a fall afternoon.  Then, what better way to wrap up the season than with what is sure to be a fun, crowd pleasing evening with the TurkeyBasters as Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow put on a show from 6:30-9:30pm.  These two are born performers, as Melissa can stand tall with her powerful and dynamic style mixing unparalleled vocals with masterful guitar...then add to that Tim Dutrow, arguably one of the finest percussionists on the Gulf Coast, who plays with a touch and zeal that hooks the audience... you can count on the fact that it will surely be a night to be remembered. 

Then, as many of you know, Bowery Station takes a short winter break to visit family, make some enhancements, and this year...do another cleaning sweep to repair from the ravages of Hurricane Michael...but be prepared.  We will be back with a revitalized energy on December 19th, geared up and refreshed for our winter season with added shows and top line performers.  

The road goes on forever and the party never ends....

Friday, Nov 16 - The Highbeams return to the BS stage from 7-10pm.  Three brothers with true passion for music; Highbeams play their own brand of emotive, high-energy Folk Rock. Since forming in 2012, Highbeams has released two full length albums and performed all over the Southeast alongside national acts like Vertical Horizon, Chase Bryant, and Col Bruce Hampton, and the Krickets. Today the band continues touring behind their latest release, Everything Aside, and making the most of every opportunity to share their dream with the world.   This touring act has begun to develop a great following here in our humble venue, so head in early to grab a seat for what will surely be a music appreciation room on a Friday in Apalachicola!

Saturday, Nov 17 - Rolling into the weekend, we are pleased to have Dothan's Dave Dale join us for a show from 3 - 5pm.  Dave's a little bit country, and a little bit rock n' roll, and a master of playing any genre for any crowd.  Everyone will be singing along as Dave warms you up for a hot Saturday night featuring.... The Jerry Thigpen Trio are excited about rockin' out an Apalach Saturday night from 6:30-9:30 ... the rock and blues train is coming into the station with the throttle down.  Jerry and the boys missed out on lasts month's show on account of the storm so they are coming in locked and loaded for great night.  

Sunday, Nov 18 - Here is a Sunday that is sure to be memorable.  Slim Fatz starts off the day from 3-5 with his unique style of blues and oldies.  Slim brings a wry wit to his performances, and always makes a perfect fit for a Sunday afternoon.  
 Belmont & Jones perform the pre-electric blues songbook with the integrity, frankness, brilliance, and humor with which it was performed by the great musicians who wrote and sang it. The authenticity of their work is in part due to Jones’ vocal chops, which rival those of the great vocalists whose hits she recreates. She would be an outstanding vocalist in any genre, and we thank her for putting her fine instrument to the service of preserving and transmitting this seminal moment in American music. Belmont sings it right too, but it is his National guitar, at times sounding eerily like it was recorded in 1926, that is the perfect compliment to their living museum.  The combination of two of the best acts on the same day will undoubtedly be one for the memory books.

Thanks again to everyone for such a welcomed response to our return from digging out after the flood waters ravished our venue, going to show that Bowery Station is more than just a building, but rather a community of musicians, and music enthusiasts that will keep the music going ... come hell or high water!

See you at the show!

Bowery Station Music Schedule (Nov 7-11)

Well Seafoodfest went off without a hitch, as it was good to see such vibrancy throughout our fine city of Apalachicola.  Big kudos to the event organizers for pulling it off on such short notice!  We will do our best to continue the energy and enthusiasm of a community reborn by bringing in some heavy hitters for a week of fantastic live music!

It starts with .....

Wednesday, Nov 7 - BS Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish.  Matt Gardi hosts and may kick things off early to get in the mood for a great evening, then the real talent...YOU...hits the stage.  Come on out and have some fun, sing a song... but simply bring out a smile to the stage and join in the commotion!

Thursday, Nov 8 - Booooooooooooo!  Boo Radley brings their New 850 Americana show to Apalach for an evening from 6-9pm.  Showcasing some of the best original songwriting in the region, Patty and Michael offer up impeccable vocal harmonies backed by Michael's masterful guitar.  A BS and Apalach favorite, Boo Radley is a great way to help us continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays, in a venue that was built for Booooooo! 

Friday, Nov 9 - Frank Jones Band rocks Bowery Station for a Friday Night show from 7-10pm.  Frank can burn up a fret board, and when backed by some of the most serious talent on the Gulf Coast you can count on a roof raising evening of blues and rock that gets the joint jumpin'.  Notable for his guitar licks, Frank's vocals stand out as well, while every member of the band can take the lead at anytime with an impressively tight synergy.  Frank and the boys are just what the doctor ordered for shaking off what ales you, and letting loose.

Saturday Nov 10 - 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, Bowery Station welcomes back Two Foot Level for a show from 6:30-9:30pm.  Featuring the bassist of Ten Pound Pancake, Todd Beavis, Two Foot Level is a band from Tallahassee, Fl. whose music could be described as a blend of Folk, Bluegrass, Rock, Americana, and Funky goodness.  Funky goodness...now That's BS!

Sunday, Nov 11 - Then, back by popular demand, Reckless Saints take the stage for a Sunday evening show from 5-8pm.  Troubadour Roy Schneider has developed a devoted fan base for his particular flavor of Americana music since 2008, through international radio airplay and consistent touring with life-and-stage partner Kim Mayfield. Playfully dubbed “Blue-Twangled Folk ‘n’ Roll” in a 2014 No Depression interview, Schneider & Mayfield have brought their musical blend of the gritty, fun, soulful and sweet to delighted audiences across the USA and abroad, exploring and expanding their musical horizons with every performance.  From ballads and dirges to grooves and hollerin’ rockers, from intimate concerts and clubs to festival stages, this multitalented duo clocks up thousands of miles annually from their home base in Fort Myers, Florida, toting an ever-evolving array of instruments wherever they are needed. With Schneider on guitar (or dobro, mandolin or banjo), harmonica, kick drum and vocals, Mayfield on mandolin (or guitar, ukulele or percussion) and vocals, their sound does not suffer for lack of bandmates.  This will be an intimate DO NOT MISS evening with this talented duo!

Thanks again to all the folks that have helped us get back on our feet here at Bowery Station, and thanks to all those musicians that continue to help us make Bowery Station... your home for great live music in Apalachicola!

See you at the show!
