posted Sep 2, 2019, 9:18 AM by Matt Gardi
Happy Fall, y'all!!!  It's exciting to get the wheels back on and start to get some of our favorite acts lined up on stage once again, and this week is a goodun!

Wednesday, Sept 4 - Dylan "Ragpicker" Allen hits us up for a Wednesday evening show from 6:30-9:30pm.  This young talent can, and will do it all.  As a soloist, he is one of the few that can fill the shoes of a full band with his energy, incredible guitar skills and wide ranging set list that can fit any generation and please any crowd.  Dylan always surprises with his contagious energy, and hardly anyone can stop themselves from tapping their feet or getting up and dancing!  Dylan has an incredible vocal range and always finds a way to work percussion into his shows in a one man band show that will surely rock Bowery Station!

Thursday, Sept 5 - Cat Braaten comes on in for a fun Thursday evening from 6:30 - 9:30pm!  Cat, being one of the Forgotten Coasts favorite female vocalists balances her shows between her well written and captivating originals and some of your favorite covers.  Her powerful vocals over the years are one of the reasons that Bowery Station has evolved into the performer centric atmosphere that it is today!

Friday, Sept 6 - It's Act One of "Nashville Comes to the Forgotten Coast!"  This two day event in conjunction with our friends at Fathom's in Carrabelle highlights 6 fantastic singer songwriters from Nashville, three on Friday from 7-10pm, and three on Saturday from 7-10pm.  These performers include: 

Matt Dame 
With a memorable voice that speaks loud, the Nashville music community has sung Dame's praises.  A trademark singers' singer, Matt has been a multiple winner of Demo Vocalist of the year, awarded by songwriters and publishers in Nashville.  Now a sought-after songwriter himself, Dame has penned songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Billy Ray Cyrus, Heartland, Russell Hitchcock (Air Supply), Bluegrass favorite Bradley Walker and more.  Matt was also a top contender on CMT's reality series "Next Superstar" (2010). 

TW Hale

He has had songs recorded by artists Reba McEntire (Why Haven't I Heard From You), George Jones (Smack Dab In The Middle of Love), Billy Ray Cyrus (Back To Memphis), Gene Watson (Snake In The House), Joe Diffie (A Night To Remember), Randy Travis (I'll Be Right Here Loving You), Martina McBride, Trace Adkins, Rhett Akins, Jeffrey Steele and bluegrass artists Del McCoury and David Parmley among others.
T.W. was featured on a critically acclaimed Discovery Channel episode of the show "The Travelers" where he wrote and produced the hosts of the show on their single "Meant To Be".

Dave Gibson
A master narrator, prolific songwriter and country artist, it’s the writing part that has sustained Gibson’s enviable career.
“I’ve known Dave since my radio days in San Antonio, before I came to Nashville,” says longtime broadcaster and WSM morning man Bill Cody.  “So after 20 years, I’ve watched his wonderful body of work grow to the point he’ll always hold his rightful place among the elite in Nashville’s songwriting community. His talent and hello-old-friend smile and kindness have never wavered.”

Quinn Loggins
Son of Dave Loggins, best known for the song "Please Come To Boston", and member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Quinn Loggins is a second generation singer songwriter. Loggins has had his music featured on TV shows such as "CMT short cuts", "Heartland", and "Bones", as well as writing with and for artists such as Kingbilly, Little Texas, Kal Horde, Australian artists Amber Lawrence, Travis Collins, Victoria Avenue, Tori Darke, and the no 3 Australian single in 2017, "Rope" for Rachel Fahim. Loggins has also penned singles for Katie Armiger "Trail Of Lies" and recently "Want Me Too" for Charlie Worsham, as well as writing the theme song for the 2017/18 Tennessee Titans titled "Welcome To The South" with Trafton Harvey and new country artist, Adam Warner. Loggins writes for Dan Hodges Music. 

Trafton Harvey
Trafton’s musical career began in the early nineties at the Lambda Chi fraternity house on the campus of Florida State University, where he started a three piece band with two fraternity brothers. The band’s success lead to the creation of a six piece, full blown country extravaganza, “The Redneck Mothers”, which became a huge success in the Tallahassee area. They opened for such well-known artists as Trace Adkins and Ty Herndon, and hosted a variety of performances throughout the southeast. 

Keesy Timmer
Keesy Timmer is an American country music songwriter from Washington State, currently residing in Nashville, TN and is a staff writer for Average Joes Entertainment's publishing company Average Zjs Music Publishing.  Keesy has had charting success with Kelsea Ballerini on her world wide hit "Yeah Boy" reaching Gold single status and remaining on the top 40 charts for nine months, including six weeks at top 5.  Keesy is an energetic story teller who loves connecting with his audience. 

Saturday, Sept 7 - While "Nashville Comes to the Forgotten Coast" continues in the evening from 7-10pm, we thought it would be nice to start off the day with a local singer/songwriter of immense talent as well.  We welcome Ashley Feller to the stage for a daytime performance from 3 - 5:30pm.  A regional favorite Ashley has a great set list of covers, but shares her well written originals as well.  She brings a contagious smile to every one of her shows and we are excited to have her return to BS on a weekend that highlights songwriting! 

Sunday, Sept 8 - BINGO! BINGO! BINGO!... and music!  That's right kids... we are having a fun filled afternoon FunRaiser to benefit the Apalachicola Riverkeeper by way of supporting our local participants in RiverTrek 2019!  The event runs from 2-6pm, and features fabulous musicians as well.  Come enjoy great songwriters in the form of Cat Braaten, Roy Ogles, and Brian Bowen, and even a few songs by your host and Bingo Caller, Matt Gardi!  The musicians will be interspersed between rounds of bingo, which will include some amazing prizes donated by generous area businesses and individuals.  Last year's event was a blast and we expect this year's to be even better.  So come on out and support this year's Rivertrek participants, Janine Gedman, Anita Grove and Cait Snyder and in turn the Apalachicola Riverkeeper!  Did I hear BINGO?????
