Keep up the good work promoting all the businesses and activities in our fine community.

Tuesday, February 2nd - Ashley Feller brightens up a Bowery Station Tuesday from 6-8pm.  Ashley is quickly developing a local following as she choses one of the best set lists a female acoustic performer can offer.  Her lighthearted stage presence warms the spirit as her vocals create a listening room environment.

Thursday, February 4th - Banjoman Chris Matechik brings in his old time, folk and blue grass from 6-8pm for one of his unforgettable and unique shows that finds no better home than in front of the century old shelves that backdrop the stage.  Chris takes you on a great tour of music that only a true banjoman can do, frequently inviting just the right accompaniment of mouth harp, guitar or bass to his shows.

Friday, February 5th - WATCHOUT!  The Jerry Thigpen Trio joins us from 6-9:30pm for a show that will be shaking the rafters and have the crowd up and moving.  Having played their debut as part of our late night series last fall, attendees were screaming for more blues and rock from this dynamic group that features one of the best lead guitarist on the east coast.  It's an honor to have such talent on the Bowery Station stage, as we expect this to be a show folks will be talking about for quite a while.

Saturday, February 6th - Robert E & Friends take the stage from 1 till 4pm, followed up by Melissa Bowman from 6-9:30pm!  Daytime music will fill the Historic Bowery District with the warmth of Robert E playing a range from Neil Young to the Beatles.  Then Melissa brings her boots, guitar and a voice unparalleled to the BS stage for an evening show that never disappoints.  Defining unbridled enthusiasm, Melissa takes listeners through a wide variety of upbeat songs like no other female vocalists can do.

Looking ahead....get your recipes together for the 2nd Annual SPAM cook-off on Superbowl Sunday, February 7th!  Last year's contest saw over 30 entrants vie for rights to wear the coveted Blue SPAM jacket!  Then enjoy the Superbowl on our large screen projector...
