Andy Wood of

Rascal Flats

with special guest

Snowblynd

Saturday, February 13, 2016

9 P.M. Showtime

$15 Advance

$18 Day of Show

Young rock/fusion virtuoso Andy Wood started out on the mandolin at the very tender age of 5. Coming from a very music-oriented family in east Tennessee, Andy's first musical love was bluegrass - learning how to play the mandolin and becoming a proficient musician from his grandfather (Paul Birchfield) and his cousin Brian Arrowood, who is a monster fiddle player and currently the band leader for country artist Mat Stillwell.

Andy fondly remembers those days and states, "It's funny, but I actually still consider mandolin my main instrument." Constant musical activity soon had Andy participating in various bluegrass and country music competitions and winning the top prize wherever he went. At the age of 16, Andy finished second at the world championship mandolin contest in Winfield, Kansas.

It wasn't until two years later that Andy took up the electric guitar. Although having played the acoustic guitar besides the mandolin, the electric guitar was a whole new instrument but Andy took to it like fish to water and soon Andy was playing along to songs that featured studio legends like Mike Landau, Dan Huff, Brent Mason, and John Jorgenson.

It wasn't until Andy was 20 that he started becoming aware of rock virtuosos such as Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. The musically curious and open-minded Andy took in the music and playing of these great players and started to incorporate these influences into his own developing style and sound.

At the age of 22, mere 4 years after taking up the electric guitar, Andy entered the Guitarmeggadon national guitar competition that was sponsored by the mega music retail chain Guitar Center. Needless to say, Andy won the competition amongst a field of some 3400 contestants. Andy adds: "It's funny; I didn't even want to enter. My buddies entered me as a joke. I was lucky enough to beat out over 3400 good guitarists."

With a sound labeled “Motor City Dixie,” Snowblynd provides listeners with real, rooted rock ‘n roll and an unmistakable outlaw country attitude. These influences are not only present in their music, but are also present in their live performances as well.

Snowblynd began as a group of teenagers born into the wrong generation who wanted to hear and play real rock ‘n roll for real rock ‘n roll fans. Brad Williams – vocals, Ryan Smith – guitar, Greg Wyld – guitar, and Barry Damron – drums, began honing their craft in local clubs and lounges, and generating a decent amount of buzz while struggling to find a bass player who shared their vision. During their very first show, there were more people in the bar than ever before. They also won the Columbus Battle of The Bands competition in 1999.

Snowblynd began recording their debut CD without a bass player when they stumbled upon the perfect solution: head engineer and bass player Joe Viers. Joe filled in on bass for a few songs during the recording, and the chemistry between them all was undeniable. It didn’t take long for Joe to become a permanent member. The recent addition of Nate Hollman and his Hammond B3 has polished the band off with the perfect, finishing touch and has created a unique sound that no one else has in Columbus. Their talent and fan base helped them land opening slots for national acts like Tesla, Blackberry Smoke, Black Oak Arkansas, Black Label Society, Bret Michaels, Jackyl, David Allen Coe, Molly Hatchet, Whitelion, Union, and the Bullet Boys.

Special Guest

Mark Stuart

Mark Stuart will spend 2016 doing what he has always done. He will tour
full-time as a musical artist, bringing his years of experience to the
stage. Onstage, his focus is on the songs he has penned and recorded,
delivered with a soulful singing voice and highly memorable guitar playing.

After many years on the Americana/Folk circuit, Stuart has cultivated a
very rounded performance. His show consists of storytelling, flashy guitar
"chops", and songs that seem to draw from his rock, blues, country, and folk
music roots. Mostly, this artist from Tennessee has toured solo or in a
notable duo with his wife ("Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart"). There were stints
along the way as a sideman, though (Steve Forbert, Freddy Fender, Steve
Earle, Joan Baez). If placed on the bill with a contemporary artist he is
usually asked to play guitar on their portion of the show. Just ask Jason
Ringenberg, Ray Wylie Hubbard, or Jimmy LaFave.

Erica Blinn

Friday, May 20, 2016

$10.00 Advance

$15.00 Day of Show

9 P.M. Showtime

Erica Blinn constructs American rock songs one earnest melody at a time. She forces Midwestern air through beat-up harmonicas and hammers out honest words that stretch and twist through her tunes. She bends the rules of the blues and knocks down the walls of pop music to create a blue collar "whiskey rock" sound that everyone can stand up for and be proud of.

 
Her 2014 release, Lovers In The Dust, was recorded in Columbus, OH by producer/engineer Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, O.A.R.) and garnered positive reviews nationwide. The album features guest performances by Devon Allman (Royal Southern Brotherhood, Honeytribe), Aaron Lee Tasjan (Drivin' N' Cryin', New York Dolls) and Angela Perley (Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons). 

 
In efforts to promote the album, Blinn and her backing band toured the country in a 92' GMC van for the past two years. Along the way, she has shared stages with names including Blues Traveler, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Family Stone, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Devon Allman, The Bros. Landreth, and The Clarks.

 
Blinn relocated to Nashville, TN in the fall of 2015. She's been writing and recording new music and continues to tour in that beat up van playing her music to fans far and wide.
