Brad Colerick
Billboard magazine called Brad Colerick “one of a baker’s dozen of acts to watch in the folk community around the world.” Colerick moved from his native Nebraska to Los Angeles in 1986 and built a successful career making music for commercials where he wrote and produced songs recorded by such musical icons as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, The Chi-Lites, and Johnny Cash. Colerick’s albums have landed in the Top 5 of both the Euro-Americana and Folk DJ charts. His fourth album, Tucson, was released in October 2014. Full of guitars, banjo, pedal steel, and fiddle, this record lands firmly into the Americana wheelhouse. The natural imagery and resilient characters of songs like “Late Winter Snow,” “The Hands of Time,” and the bluegrassy “Brakeman’s Door” hark back to his Nebraska roots.

“Colerick’s stories are worth hearing in part because he makes singing sound so easy. His warm, sunny, homey tenor brings alive the characters, places and relationships in these 11 songs.”—Associated Press

David Plenn
David Plenn’s musical career began in 1968 when he was signed to A&M Records while still in high school. Shortly after, he began performing, recording, and producing albums with singer-songwriter Jerry Riopelle. A song he co-wrote with Riopelle was recorded by Kenny Loggins on his multi-platinum-selling Nightwatch album and re-recorded on his Alive album. Later, Plenn co-wrote “The Forecast (Calls for Pain)” for Robert Cray, who made it the lead track on Midnite Stroll. Plenn went on to write songs for many television shows including Touched by an Angel, Melrose Place, the 1988 Summer Olympics, Beverly Hills 90210, and others. During his career he has performed or recorded with many artists including Fleetwood Mac’s John McVie, Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield, Joe Henry, and others.

Blockhead
Mar 27 @ 8:00 pm

8PM 21+ $10 Presale/$12 Day of Show

Calling Blockhead a hip-hop producer is a bit like calling Radiohead a rock ‘n’ roll band. Though he’s provided beats for Def Jux artists like Aesop Rock and isn’t above the occasional sped-up vocal sample or turntable scratch, Blockhead’s ethereal soundscapes go far beyond what most convention hip-hop aspires to.

Sir Harrison
Mar 28 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Sir Harrison performs at the Spirit RoomHarrison Begay was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, is full blooded Navajo (Dine’). His passion for blues music and the guitar have been the driving force in his quest for artistry. He started playing music at the age of eight. The clarinet being his first instrument. It would not be until the early years of high school that Harrison would pick up his first guitar.

Harrison first took the stage in 1999 at a blues jam in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Every week he returned and the audience wanted more.  This was the time for him to learn, grow and work with other musicians. His first band would take on the name, “Colorblind”, a power trio that was complimented by the tasteful bass-lines of producer and recording engineer, Leo Okeke.

In the summer of 2000 Colorblind was called to fill a major time slot that opened up at the Tulsa Blues Festival at the historic Cain’s Ballroom . Wanting the exposure, his the band played for free. That night they brought the house down.

Sir Harrison’s music and stage performance has attracted a broad audience. His guitar playing is straight from the soul. He’s been compared to Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Cray, but Sir Harrison’s guitar playing has his own unique sound.

His current band, “Sir Harrison and the Blues Kings,” was formed in 2004 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The members are veteran musicians. Singer song-writer and bassist, Richard Neville who has toured with Poco, Vince Gill, Mickey Gilley, Tanya Tucker and guitar virtuoso Phil Brown. Drummer, Eddy Barattini has toured with Richie Havens, Stanley Jordon and is also an accomplished recording engineer and composer. Together their music is a combination of rhythmic patterns, all in a motion created by Sir Harrison’s body language and soulful guitar riffs. It’s smooth, funky, rock-in and whole lot of blues power.
