Bowery Station Music Schedule (May 31 - June 2)

posted May 28, 2018, 9:57 AM by Matt Gardi
Summer is fully upon us, and with it Bowery Station is pleased to move into our "summer hours!"  That's right, during June and July you might notice a few changes to our days, nights and hours of operation.  First, we will now be open Wed-Sat. (Taking an extra day of rest on Sundays)  Further, you may have already noticed our hours are from 2-9pm… “or until the music stops.”  Well, it’s summer and you will find that everything slides a little later, more than likely a wee past 9pm on most summer nights…. As is clearly evident by our scheduled music times.  (Just keeping you all on your toes!)  Also, take note that we will be closed the entire month of August…even live music enthusiast need some time to reflect on what a great year it was, and let the anticipation build for the year to come. 

But enough about that, let’s take a look at what we have in store for live music this upcoming week!

Wednesday, May 30 – Spotlight on the Mic featuring Rick Finneran 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. Rick fits the bill well with his Irish oriented set list.  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, May 31 – We are proud and honored to have Ryan Broshear kicks off his summer tour in Apalachicola at Bowery Station with a show from 6-9pm.  Once recognized by Billboard magazine as "One of the top 10 artist to watch" Ryan puts on a remarkable performance every time he hits the stage!  In today’s country music, there is not an overwhelming amount of artists and songwriters raring to tell you how “country” they are. And none exemplify the merge of the genuine country music genre with a hip fresh sound quite like Ryan Broshear. Born and raised on an Oxford Ohio farm, he is as charismatic and gifted as it gets. Ryan is carving out a successful career by writing and singing traditional leaning country music with a brilliant modern edgy feel.  Bowery Station is pleased to continue our efforts to make Thursdays the New Friday in Apalachicola, and love doing so with this do not miss show!

Friday, June 1 – Somebody say “Awwww…Sh**!” as Johnny Barbato rolls into town for an afternoon show from 4-6pm.  Johnny is a self proclaimed “Love song singing... Summmanabeatch!”  Get ready to kick your weekend off right with an “intimate” show as this Gulf Coast legend and Florabama mainstay takes you on a tour of blues rock and Americana with some of the best originals you will hear!  Then, Garnet and Soul return for a show from 7-10pm!  Mary has a sultry voice backed by keys, horns and percussion that brings on a wide range of genres with a captivating enthusiasm.  From soul to jazz, funk a little R&B with a sprinkling of Country Garnet and Soul has become one of the region’s most sought after acts and it is a blessing to have them join us at Bowery Station. 

Saturday, June 2 – Here is a one of a kind day… first we open early at noon for a big day … then Cat Braaten takes the stage from 2-4pm to get us in the mood for…  a wedding.  That’s right, BS is poised to host a wedding that will rival any royal wedding you have ever witnessed.  Patty and Michael of Boo Radley fame will be tying the knot at 5pm in a style and manner that only they could.  And… you are invited!  Patty and Michael wanted to share their special day with all of you that love and appreciate them, not only for their gift of music they share with us, but for the fine upstanding giving folks they are!  Then, get ready to shake your booty off, as our happy couple has selected one of the funkiest, soulful, get down and dance your behind off groups to hit the BS stage… Tallahassee HighTest!  Directly after the ceremony at approximately 5:30… it’s game on as HighTest starts one of their all original, improvised jams into the Apalachicola evening!  Horns, Keys, and powerful heartfelt vocals are the trademark of HighTest and no one can sit still once the fuse is lit!  Come on out and celebrate with one of the finest couples to grace our stage…Patty and Michael!  Boooooooooooooooooooo!

Sunday, June 3 – Get some salt and sand in your beers as we will see ya on the Beach as summer hours officially kick in!

Once again thanks to all you live music enthusiasts that continue to support our musicians that give it their all on our stage.  Without your support, we at Bowery Station could not continue to bring such a diverse and high level of talent to Apalachicola for your enjoyment.

See you at the show!
