Things are still cooking here in Apalachicola, as fall rolls in but the heat is fighting it off.... and add to that piping hot live music ... summer will have it's way for a while...

So how hot is it?  It is soooo hot.... that....

Wednesday, Sept 19 - Open Mic is on from 6-7:30, so tune up the guitar, banjo, spoons or tap shoes and find your way out to the areas best display of local, and developing talent.  All levels of talent are always welcomed and appreciated so long as you bring a smile to the stage.  This evening will offer a small deviation to the normal format as Southern Flood will be wrapping up the evening from 7:30-9ish, introducing their new front man vocalist.  So come on out for a taste of the new Flood.  As always tips for performers go to a charity, and starting this week they will go towards the Friends of the St. Vincent Island National Wildlife Refuge in lead up to their fundraiser on Sunday, Oct 14!

Thursday, Sept 20 - House favorite Sarah Moranville joins us for a show from 6-9pm as we continue to make Thursdays the New Friday.  Sarah, a featured artist in our Chickfest 2018 stole the show with her performance of some of your favorite classics with a notably unique voice that commands attention.  A rising star on the gulf coast, Sarah always has the crowd singing along as she spreads her contagious smile with Apalach music enthusiasts.

Friday, Sept 21 - Watch out kids, as the Frank Jones Band returns to Bowery Station for a Friday Night show from 7-10pm.  Few can deal the guitar cards like Frank, 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.  It's a pleasure to have these guys back on the BS stage, and we're sure they are Jonesin' to put on a do not miss performance!

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.  

That's a pretty solid week as we approach ApalachOktoberfest 2018!  Things are jumping into the fall.... and they always get better and better.  Thanks again to all the musicians, and live music enthusiasts that continue to make Bowery Station...your home for great live music in Apalachicola!

How are we mixing up community fun with great live music you ask...wellllll... how about this...

Wednesday, Sept 12 - Open Mic is on from 6-8ish, so tune up the guitar, banjo, spoons or tap shoes and find your way out to the areas best display of local, and developing talent.  All levels of talent are always welcomed and appreciated so long as you bring a smile to the stage.  As you may recall, tips for performers for Open Mic always go to a great cause, this month once again we will be splitting them between our friends Janine Gedmin and Anita Grove on their quest to raise sponsorship for Rivertrek, a 104 mile kayak trip down the Apalachicola in October that benefits the Apalachicola Riverkeeper!  This is in correlation with a great fundraiser we have planned for this Sunday, Sept 16 featuring Bingo, fantastic prizes and great area musicians.

Thursday, Sept 13 - Ahhhhh!   Thursday the 13th!!  What does that mean?  It means we continue to make Thursdays the New Fridays... and it's the 13th... and ... and... Jeb Tabb returns for a show from 6-9pm.   Jeb played back in April and brought his Georgia roots to his performance with solid vocals of Americana with a down home feel.  So come on out and join him for a Thursday evening that makes Thursdays the New Fridays in Apalachicola.

Friday, Sept 14 - It's a send off to Hobson!  That's right, Southern Flood is playing from 7-10pm, and it is a send off for founding member Hobson Fulmer as he moves on to new objectives!  The Flood will remain rocking your world, with a soon to be introduced singer, but this night will be a one for the record books as our community sends Hobson off in style.  Rumors of trampolines can neither be confirmed or denied at this time, so expect the unexpected as Hobson, Steve, Charles and Ellis always give it their all for what will surely be a night to shake your booty.. and your groove thing... well a night to shake anything you can.

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!

Friday, Sept 7 - The Bo Spring Band is back in Apalachicola to light up a Friday night from 7-10pm.  Known for their energetic, dance inducing performances, this foursome offers up a talent level that is unparalleled and that is the perfect fit for the Bowery Station stage.  Always an area draw, both for their well known originals, along with their renditions of your favorite covers...it's always a roof raisin' show, and a do not miss evening.

Saturday, Sept 8 - Real Rob returns to Bowery Station for a daytime performance from 3-5:30pm.  Rob is a Jazz, Blues and Folk musician currently based out of New Orleans and we are pleased to have found a spot for him on his travels through this area of the panhandle.  Then, please keep you hands and feet inside the launch vehicle as the Jerry Thigpen Trio is back from their Northeast Tour and are ready to hit the BS stage with their hard hitting blues and rock n' roll from 6:30-9:30pm.  It's difficult to find three more talented musicians that play so tight, and fill the room with as much enthusiasm as these three.  Their love of performing permeates the crowd, and always has the joint jumpin'! 

Sunday, Sept 9 - Booooooooooooo!  Boo Radley brings their New 850 Americana show to Apalach for an evening from 5:30-8:30pm.  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 make for a great way to spend a casual Sunday evening, in a venue that was built for Booooooo!

Friday, Aug 31 - The Turkeybasters are ready to cut loose with a show from 7-10pm.  This dynamic duo of Melissa Bowman and Tim Dutrow always put on an energetic show that gets the crowd movin'.  Melissa's powerful guitar and vocals are joined by arguably one of the most impressive percussionists on the Gulf Coast.  There is no better way to get the live music scene back into gear in Apalach than to kick it off with the TurkeyBasters!  

Saturday, Sept 1 - Rolling into the long weekend, we are pleased to have Dothan's Dave Dale join us for a show from 3:30-5:30pm.  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 Garnet & Soul from 6:30-9:30pm.  Mary Ann leads the band on a tour from old classics, then kicks it in with some soul, funk, and groove that gets the joint jumpin'.  Every time Garnet & Soul hit the BS stage they always seem to take it up a notch as the crowd sits in awe at the powerful vocals Mary Ann belts out, joined by the energetic vibe of the boys in the band.  We have selected Garnet & Soul for this year's BS New Year's celebration for a reason, so come get a taste of one of the best shows in the region.  (Photo Credit: Kira Derryberry Photography)

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!

We have just one week left of live music before summer break, and it is a dooooozie!  There is no better way to head off into a summer vacation than with the best in live music available here on the Forgotten Coast....

... and here it is ...

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!

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!

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!

Bowery Station Music Schedule (June 20 - 23)

posted Jun 17, 2018, 7:06 AM by Matt Gardi

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!
