Bowery Station Music Schedule (Nov 14 - 18)

posted Nov 11, 2018, 2:52 PM by Matt Gardi

The brisk breeze of winter is quickly approaching, but we are cooking over a hot stove of hot live tasty music that will be sure to warm the souls of any music enthusiast!  

Here's what this week looks like....

Wednesday, Nov 14 - 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!  As you know, tips for performers at BS Open Mic always go to a charity, and this week, and for the remainder of the year we will be helping out our friends at the SGI Cat Allies...going to help humanely reduce the feral cat population both on SGI and in Apalachicola by spaying and neutering feral cats!

Thursday, Nov 15 - Sticky Too will be heading into Apalachicola for a fun show from 6-9pm as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays here at Bowery Station.  Tim and Jay play a diverse set list of songs everyone loves, harmonize like the best, and both can pick a mean guitar.  It's hard not to sing along with Sticky Too, so come on out for a great Thursday!

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!

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!

Alrighty kids, we see a light at the end of the tunnel, and have removed the vast majority of mud from Bowery Station.  We are thankful for the outpouring of support we have received from so many folks, both locally and from throughout the nation.  So many of you kind folks have given us your time, helped us with cash flow by purchasing some of our distressed riverwashed tee shirts and provided us with straight out overly generous donations.   There are far too many to thank, but please know that with your assistance we are well on our way to recovery.  With the main cleanup done, we now turn our attention to the micro jobs such as diagnosing cooler repair/and or replacement, etc.  Please know that those of you who have donated financially to our cause that your funds will be devoted specifically to any cooler work that is needed....which means you have done something very important... and that is to help keep beer cold!!!!

We managed to removed the majority of our sound system before the storm and store it safely off site, so aside from small items like stands, cables etc, we should be able to get the music pumping once again... and to that end..... 

Saturday, Oct 27 6:30-9:30PM  - Southern Flood has offered to rock a free gig to help pry the door back open at Bowery Station and we of course said...Hell Yah! These local legends, all of whom are recovering from Hurricane Michael, (Some more than others as Steve Burke lost his house) want to rock Apalachicola like never before. So to that end, we could see no better way to try and get the wheels back on the live music bandwagon, than with Ellis, Charles, Steve... and new lead front man Steve Litherland hitting the BS stage. While we had saved most of our sound system off site, many of you have witnessed the muddy carnage that wrecked our coolers and inventory. That being said, we will match Southern Flood's generosity to Bowery Station and Apalachicola with $1 riverwashed beers and wines all weekend long! But please be patient as we are jerry-rigging a lot of systems to offer what we have available at the icy cold temperatures and quick service you've become accustomed to. Thank you Southern Flood...let's light it up Saturday night in Apalach with the good kind of Flood we all love!! 

Sunday, Oct 28 - More storm stories.  Slim Fatz was scheduled to play from 3-5pm.  We have only heard through the grapevine that he is OK, but have not heard directly from him.  Regardless, we hold the stage open for Slim's afternoon slot, and hope he will be able to grace our stage from 3-5pm.  Then, for the evening slot of which we have confirmed... Sticky Too will be jamming from 5-8pm!  Tim and Jay just dominated with a great show at ApalachOktoberfest, and are coming back to do it again.  Both these guys are from Panama City Beach and are excited to make the trek through storm ravaged points west to assist Apalachicola with our rejuvenation and revitalization efforts.

Thanks again to so, so many of you, we are blessed to have such generous folks whom have our back, and support our efforts to bring the best in live music to Apalachicola!!

Thursday, Sept 27 - Christina Christian returns for a show from 6-9pm as we continue to make Thursdays the new Friday.  Christina is a Frequent Flyer at Florabama's and... has the Johnny Barbato seal of approval.  She’s participated in the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival with Outlaw, Dallas Moore, and longtime collaborator Taylor Craven, bringing her gentle country singer-songwriter style to Louisiana. She’s toured around the U.S., hitting major music cities like Nashville and Chicago, showcasing her authentic talent and thoughtful lyrics in venues such as Horse Pens 40 and the Dothan Opera Theatre.  She’s been featured in the Mississippi Songwriters Festival, the 3rd Street Music Festival, and the Hwy. 80 Songwriters Festival, and shared the stage with Delta Rae and David Nail. Her new album was recorded in the legendary The Storage Room in Perdido Key with Sandy Roots Music Productions.  This is a do not miss show for the Apalach live music enthusiast.

Saturday, Sept 29 - Luke Wilmoth joins us for an afternoon show from 3-5:30.  Luke is an indie rock singer-songwriter hailing from Lakeland, FL. A modern reminiscence of classic Americana, Wilmoth's sound is carefully crafted from driving guitars, and lush vocals.  While being an indie rock songwriter, his talent and ability are highlighted by the fact that he was also the recipient of the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award and 3 time finalist in the Bob Washington Jazz Competition.  Then, what better act for a Saturday night is there than the duo of Cat Braaten and Tom Mason as they join us for a show from 6:30-9:30.  Cat, a proven Apalach favorite that can belt out the tunes with a mix of originals and covers, always gives a lights out performance, but once in a great while she brings along with her Nashville legend Tom Mason.  Tom joins her with intricate guitar riffs, fantastic harmonies, some amazing originals of his own, and on occasion even a trombone!!  Great tunes, and great folks!

Sunday, Sept 30 - Matt Law, a frequent flyer of our favorite music festivals here in Apalach and beyond, comes on out for one of his signature performances from 5-8pm.  Matt can, and does, masterfully play an array of classics while mixing an variety of guitars to take on a style and tonality of his own.  Well known for his depth of genres, Matt shares his knowledge of music history that runs just as deep.  Now that's what Sundays are made for.

Saturday, Sept 22 - Tim Moore hits the stage with a solo performance from 3-5:30pm.  We happened to be up at Atlanta's Eddie's Attic and were fortunate enough to catch Tim on stage while there.  We immediately knew that Apalach had to meet Tim Moore.  With exceptionally well written originals, Tim brings that down home feel to his performances while engaging the audience.  We are fortunate to have found a time when he could fit Apalachicola and Bowery Station into his travels so come on out for this afternoon show.  Then, back by popular demand, we are excited to have Wailin' Wolves join us for a Saturday evening from 6:30-9:30pm.  Female lead Britt can steal the show at any moment, but the Wolves behind her put on a hard hitting show of Blues and Rock, mixed with a little old time funk, soul and R&B to make the night complete.  The frequently asked question..."Hey, when you getting the Wolves back?" is answered .... this Saturday night! 

Sunday, Sept 23 - It's a Bonnie Raitt tribute... featuring local legends Brian Bowen, Cat Braaten, and Bo Spring!  The fun starts at 5:30pm and runs till 8:30pm.  These three have done incredible shows highlighting both John Prine, and Tom Petty to standing room only crowds.  Well, now here is one for the lady of the trio as they take on the great Bonnie Raitt.  Known also for her covers, it will be interesting to see what this trio comes up with... but one thing will be assured... it will be a fantastic show.  So come on out for this Sunda'sy tribute to a great musician, performed by local greats.

Saturday, Sept 15 - It's great to have the salt encrusted Brian Bowen back on the stage for an afternoon show from 3-5:30pm.  Bowen, a frequent flyer on WOYS, Oyster Radio, brings some well written originals along with your favorite classics from John Prine to Guy Clark and even maybe a little Buffet to his shows, and is a legend on the Forgotten Coast for a reason... then going into the evening we have the debut in Apalach of Brad Foutch from 6:30-9:30pm.  Brad is an extraordinary performer that can light up a stage with his amazingly energetic guitar and heartfelt vocals.  We had the pleasure to catch one of his shows at Fathoms a few months ago, and knew he would be a great asset to the Bowery Station stage. This will be a do not miss performance, as Bard will surely light up a Saturday night in Apalach.  Come give him a great welcome to Oystertown.

Sunday, Sept 16 - What do you get when you mix live music, beer, wine, and BINGO?!!?  That's right kids, we said BINGO!  You get yourself a fun afternoon fundraiser for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper in the form of supporting two local ladies, Janine Gedmin and Anita Grove, who will be participating in the 104 mile Rivertrek in October and are developing sponsorship for the event!  Local music legends that will be performing include Brian Bowen, Jenny Odom, Roy Ogles, Clayton Mathis, Shaken and Stirred featuring Carol Harris and Randy Mims!!!  Rounds of bingo will be interlaced with the musicians with some very amazing prizes donated by area businesses.  So come on out for a day of fun, that goes to a great cause!  Doors open at 2pm, and music starts shortly thereafter and runs into the evening!!

So that's a fun week, some new faces, and some house favorites return to the BS stage... in a word...community!  Join us as we strive to continue to make Bowery Station.... your home for great live music in Apalachicola!

(Note: We have added an additional Sunday eve show since our Monthly Update)

How does it all kick into gear?  Lookie here....

Sunday, Sept 2 - Slim Fatz is back at BS for an afternoon show from 3-5pm.  Slim brings his unique style of blues, with low down growling vocals and blues riffs and the occasional slide.  Slim groupies gather from near and far for afternoon shows with the man, as he appeals to everyone with a show that ranges from Louis to Muddy.  Then, keeping the holiday weekend of live music rolling... Tyler James Arnold plays from 5-8pm!  Tyler brings the down home Louisiana sound to life with a well chosen set list, great leads over perfect sampling, a voice that commands attention, and tunes ranging from your favorite americana, and southern rock to contemporary gulf coast legends that will have you singing along.  No better way to spend a Sunday in Apalach on a great holiday weekend.

It's great to get the wheels back on the live music bandwagon, so climb on in and grab a comfortable seat and find out why Bowery Station is truly your home for fresh live music in Apalachicola.   Fresh live music...fast, friendly service, great cold beer and wine, and an atmosphere that can't be beat...Now That's BS!

Wednesday, July 25 - Spotlight on the Mic features Bob Gorecki from 5:30-6:15pm.  Bob has been one of those talents adding to his repertoire and we are excited about him playing an extended slot before..... 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 three Open Mics, generous patrons have thrown $1254 into the performer tip buckets.  This is the last week, so come on out and play, and if so inclined toss a dollar or two in the bucket for a great cause.

Thursday, July 26 - The Highbeams return for one of their dynamic shows from 6-9pm!  Highbeams are a trio of brothers that play emotive, high energy Folk Rock. The band has captured audiences all over the Southeast with their warm, personable stage presence and rich three-part harmonies. Highbeams have released two full length albums and have played alongside national acts such as Vertical Horizon, Chase Bryant, Col Bruce Hampton, and the Grammy nominated duo, Brothers Osborne. Today the band continues touring behind their latest release, Do Good\\Be Well, and making the most of every opportunity to share their dream with the world.  Every time these guys step on stage here in Apalach, they draw a crowd of enthusiastic onlookers, and we expect no less as we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays!! 

Friday, July 27 - Here is a great back to back...let's start off the afternoon with Cat Braaten and Tom Mason for a show from 4-6:30pm.  Cat, a proven Apalach favorite that can belt out the tunes with a mix of originals and covers always gives a lights out performance, but once in a great while we are blessed as she brings with her Nashville legend Tom Mason.  Tom joins her with intricate guitar riffs, fantastic harmonies, some amazing originals of his own, and on occasion a trombone!!  What a great lead in to an evening with Boo Radley, as Patty and Michael take on a Friday night from 7-10pm.  Leaders of their own genre of originals that oft times is referred to as new 850 Americana, Boo Radley holds the attention of a riveted audience both with their performance skills as well as their compositions.  Michael always amazes on his six string, but combined with amazing vocal harmonies...Boo Radley defines a live performance!

Saturday, July 28 - Dothan's Dave Dale joins us for a fun afternoon from 3:30-5:30pm with his country, rock and a smile the size of Oklahoma!   Dave can play for just about any crowd by accommodating any genre of music.  The crowd always ends up singing along as few can make great time happen on a Saturday afternoon of live music like Dave can!  Then, we wrap up the summer with some of the best performers that have ever graced the Bowery Station stage....The Bo Spring Band is ready to dominate from 6:30-9:30.  Bo, Lauren, Tim and (Hand Model) Randon always raise the roof through a show of originals and your favorite covers.  They love performing, and it shows with the energy that they fill each and every show with.  This will be a pinnacle of our summer performances, and seeing as Bowery Station will be taking summer break for the entire month of August....it is a do not miss show. (Well any Bo Spring show is...but that's a given.)

Again, thanks to everyone for making the summer hot in so many ways, the musicians, the dancers, Dave Cerrato, and all of you live music enthusiasts...

The fun continues Friday, Aug 31 as we kick things back off with the TurkeyBasters....stay tuned!
