posted Feb 11, 2019, 8:09 AM by Matt Gardi
With Valentine's day approaching, this week is a week for lovers... lovers of the best live music in Apalachicola that is...

Here we go...

Wednesday, Feb 13 -  Matt Gardi hosts as BS Open Mic rolls from 6-8ish.  As always tips for our Open Mic performers go to support local charities, this week we are raising some funds for the Capital Chordsmen, a group that gives scholarships to music students at FSU and FAMU and who will also be performing  A Capella for a short set on Valentines day.  So come on out and sing a song or do a dance as all levels of talent are welcomed and appreciated.

Thursday, Feb 14 - Love is in the beer!  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 as few can play an electric as a soloist with such a great feel. Then we are joined by the A Capella quartet of the Capital Chordsmen for a half hour show from 5:30-6pm.  Every year these guys join us on Valentines day and it is always quite a treat.  Following that, we roll into the evening with Cat Braaten and Josh Watson who will be joining forces from 6-9pm.  Both of these musicians have a style of their own and together they form a Reeces peanut butter cup of live music!

Friday, Feb 15 - Bill Pandolfi and Wayne Britt come into town for one of their signature duo performances from 4-6pm.  Bill and Wayne can cover just about any genre, and both can make their guitars sing as they love getting on stage and sharing their talents.  Then, get ready for some good ol' rock and roll, southern rock, and a touch of country as Six String South hits the stage for a Friday night show from 7-10pm.  It's been a while since these powerhouse performers have joined us int eh Bowery and we are looking forward to a roof raising Friday night.

Saturday, Feb 16 - We bring back for a solo performance Josh Watson for a show from 3-5:30.  Josh has a great vocal range and plays guitar in a way that gets everyone's toes tapping.  His set list spans the generations but hits home in the 90s and Americana.  Then, the train of blues and rock pulls into the Station as the Jerry Thigpen Trio joins us for a show from 6:30-10pm.  Jimmy Bones and Pete Winter put the rhythmic back beat behind Jerry's blistering guitar riffs through a set list of well crafted originals and your favorite covers of blues and rock!

Sunday, Feb 17 - OK folks, here is a fun day of immense talent and showmanship.  First, the Reverend Billy C. Wirtz joins us from 2-5pm.  Reverend Billy C. Wirtz is a comic genius, gifted pianist and American musicologist who defies easy classification. “I like to think of myself as the Victor Borge of the blues,” states the Reverend, but Billy goes way beyond Borge both in scope of subject matter (from politics to social commentary) and, of course, in taste. In fact, no theme is too extreme, taboo, or undignified for the Reverend, so long as it garners a good laugh.  This will be a do not miss afternoon show.  Then, who better to follow up the good Reverend, then the revered Boo Radley with a show from 5-8pm!  One of the finest duos to play the Southeast, Patty and Michael combine their voices for intense harmonies accompanied by Michael's incredible guitar arrangements for a performance of new 850 Americana.  A primarily original show that fans have come to love, this will make for a fantastic Sunday evening!

Come on see the show, day or night.... there is always some live music brewing at Bowery Station.
