Alcohol, friends, and fun…and a common love of good music

    The Firehouse Saloon presents Jared Blake (From The Voice) Few artists carry the power that can even compare to the deep vocals and emotional delivery Jared Blake carries to his audience every single performance Even fewer lend that same passion to their fans, but Jared does Being known to the world as a father of six kids, taking care of the fans too is just a normal way of life His life isn’t separated from music, rather, a blend of family, fans, and friends who he calls “frands” Jared Blake grew up on watermelons and rock ‘n roll His summer’s were spent peddling and playing Growing up in the small town of Star City, Arkansas, Jared always had big dreams of performing on the big stage, but that didn’t stop him from taking his time growing up and learning everything he could about the business, songwriting, and playing multiple instruments Jared would be the first one to tell you, “The second I think I know what’s going on, it all turns upside down again” He also says that’s what keeps him writing, dreaming, working and just being himself That same willingness to keep going, not knowing, landed him on national television Once again, Jared found himself on an adventure into what turned out to be the #1 rated show on NBC, “The Voice”, with Blake Shelton to guide him So, he did what any regular ol’ country boy would do…he rocked it! He was just as happy alone with his acoustic guitar and 14-million viewers watching him sing “Not Ready To Make Nice” (Dixie Chicks) as he was performing the rock tune “Use Somebody” (Kings of Leon) in a guitar-throwing, full-out passionate display All of his performances appeared in the charts worldwide more than 56 times and reaching as high as #16 Jared was featured in magazines such as People and Rolling Stone, television morning shows, and radio stations syndicated across the nation He began a national acoustic tour the last week of the show airing, promoting a single his fans picked called “Don’t Mind” That tune won grassroots radio airplay in several areas and the ability to quickly tour with his whole band In June of 2012, Jared was offered a recording deal with Skiddco Music (Grammy award-winning producer, Skidd Mills) and began working on his first full album, scheduled to release summer 2013 Jared Blake spent years being told he has “the voice”, lending it to voiceover work in the demo world for artists and the weekly syndicated broadcast of CT40 with Bob Kingsley His sounds are compared to Bob Segar and Travis Tritt mixed with Chris Daughtry There’s no doubt Jared’s voice is one of the most powerful voices to hit the country genre, and once heard it’s never forgotten That ability has made the name stick His shows compare to the energy and emotional roller coaster of a Guns N Roses or a Billy Joel concert The no-frills production is enough to entertain any crowd For that, Jared has played with artists like Lee Brice, Thompson Square, The Band Perry, John Rich, Randy Houser, Jarrod Neimann, Billy Currington, and headlined or opened for events like The Lone Star Rally, Sturgis Bike Rally, Easy Riders Rodeo, Country Delta Jam, Country USA, and much, much more “The joke with my road crew is that I’m like a 5-year-old,” says more-than-five-year-old Blake adding, “and I think that’s why we all keep going and laughing the whole way There’s no one playing the ‘poor me’ card for all the hard work we do We know everyone out there is working hard, and some guys are even fighting and dying so we can keep doing what we do, so for that alone, there’s no complaining I couldn’t do any other job on the planet, so I owe my life to the music fans of the world!” Jared is looking to the future of bright lights and sleepless nights “…but I’m just gonna keep writing what I know and singing what I love…with the greatest people on the planet, my frands!” Jared Blake’s newest single released in June of 2013, titled “Countryfied”, and be on the watch as this star burns brighter You can follow his tour or join his “frands” online at wwwjaredblakemusiccom

    Rudyard's presents Visionary Noise presents: SilverTongue Devil * Metalloyd * EndIsNow * Ars Nova SilverTongue Devil (Dallas, TX) https://wwwfacebookcom/silvertonguedevil666 Our story began ages ago with the great cosmic flash that sent the stuff of stars tearing through the void, bringing life to fiery action Everything is evolving, always growing and morphing until critical mass is met From darkness we came, to darkness we return The other of utter darkness The other unconsumed The other of ancient tongues The other point of view We are no one We come from nowhere There have been others before us, and we are mere parts of the evolution There are no gods or devils but those that we create in our own image We are not believers We seek to know, to live, and to grow stronger in body, spirit, and mind We revere all of the arts of darkness “The key to joy is disobedience” – Aleister Crowley We are a band, a tribe Our music is metal, the music of chaos and the void Some have called it the devil’s music, and that is fine by us To those that came before us and inspired us, we bestow great honor Our desire is simple: to conquer our own limitations We seek to thrive, to grow into the gods we choose to be When critical mass comes we will return to nothing, but we will have become legion Metalloyd (Houston, TX) http://wwwreverbnationcom/metalloydtx Metalloyd is a Heavy Metal band based out of Houston Texas The music of Metalloyd can best be described as a combination of the band’s classic metal influences of the 80’s and a more modern aggressive sound The band started its career in 2003 performing covers and slowly began to gain a following through its high energy shows and song selections Once the band began writing material, the incorporation of their influences were easily recognizable, and they brought an old school feel to a drastically different music scene With six years of performing live and writing material, Metalloyd has not lost any of the intensity that first made them stand out The line-up is Chris Salazar on lead guitar and lead vocals, Anthony Sanchez on lead guitar and backing vocals, Luis Garcia on bass and backing vocals, and Daniel Ramos on the drums These four metal heads all share one common dream, to continue to write and perform their music to any and all who share the same love for Heavy Metal music EndIsNow (Houston, TX) http://wwwreverbnationcom/endisnow Born in the winter of 2008 Barrier-less, experimental rock music deeply rooted in punk and metal Ars Nova (Houston, TX) https://wwwfacebookcom/arsnovatx Ars Nova is a band from Houston, Texas looking to spread their music all over for everyone to enjoy and experience They want to share it all with the world and spread strong community for everyone to hear their sound and what they are all about They are more than just a band! They want to broadcast the Emotions and Ideas through Strength and Power in the hands of all people through this music, be it Political Activism, Christianity, Anti-Imperialism, War, Money, Death, and the After Life The four of them have completely different styles They each bring something to the stage creating a combination of blistering riffs, melodic choruses, raving time changes and snaps Their stage presence is very zealous and aggressive for every show put on They strive for perfection and love what they do This is definitely a band worth listening to let alone watch perform

    Rudyard's presents The Invincible Czars * Come See My Dead Person The Invincible Czars (Austin, TX) http://invincibleczarscom/ "The Invincible Czars, from catchy name to daunting stage presence, are a rare breed They bring bizarre, but methodical math-rock heavily influenced by classical music, polka, and even some country and jazz Self-described as "a rock soundtrack to a sci-fi film with interruptions by a myriad of genres," we couldn't agree morethe Czars are renowned for eclectic and sophisticated compositions Oh yeah, they're classy all right They've arranged music for works like Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker Suite" and Mussorgsky's "A Night on Bald Mountain" - The Austinist Austin's Invincible Czars have become known and lauded for their sprawling catalog of original material and for arrangements of classical works such as Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and 1812 Overture They are currently documenting their silent film works in a new CD-R series, rehearsing a re-working of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition to be performed as a double-band with Austin avant jazz-rockers Bee vs Moth and developing more original material The group's original songs and instrumental pieces are highly composed "mini-symphonies" chock full of memorable melodies, meticulous arrangements, dynamics, and humor They fuse riff rock, classical music, loungey grooves, spacey klezmer, country shuffles, and circusy polka They draw from a myriad of disparate influences from Prokofiev to Primus, Louis Armstrong to Van Halen, and Bach to Zappa The band applies the DIY attitude of post-punk groups like NoMeansNo and Fugazi to their musical explorations, resulting in a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts The group's annual dance-it-yourself Nutcracker Kids' Show has become an annual tradition and other seasonal events like the Olde Fashioned Independence Day Indoor Picnic set them apart from their peers They even co-present an unofficial showcase during South by Southwest each year called the Bizarrebecue, presenting the best of international art rock in Austin during SxSW The Invincible Czars are known by many for their original new scores for silent movies which they perform live at indoor and outdoor theaters  In their eleven years of existence, the band has performed at private events, nightclubs, parks, theaters, museums, radio stations, community centers, museums, grocery stores, restaurants, television stations, sky scraper plazas, bedrooms and radio studios from San Francisco to New Orleans Come See My Dead Person (Galveston/Houston, TX) http://wwwcsmdpcom/ Come See My Dead Person is an eclectic blend of multi-cultural music unbound by any one genre Fusing a multitude of styles from folk, rock, bluegrass, gypsy, and jazz, to polka, punk, country, latin, and soul, CSMDP provides a little something for everyone and a whole lot in between Where you find Come See My Dead Person you are sure to find a frenzied crowd dancing and laughing uncontrollably (at whom we’re still not sure) If you like fun that doesn’t cause a murder then we are for you (if you like fun that *does* cause a murder, just let us know on the down-low; see, I know this guy…) We’ve recently stumbled upon a growing interest in our sound and despite our best efforts people keep coming back for more Like it or not, it seems the world may very well be ready for Come See My Dead Person…

    Rudyard's presents Treyn Wreck * Funky Mustard Treyn Wreck (Spring, TX) http://wwwtreynwrekcom/ Have you heard the rumble? Have you heard the sound? There is a TreynWrek a coming with no plans of slowing down It’s hard to believe that just a little over a year ago TreynWrek emerged onto the music scene and have been gaining steam ever since As soon as the Treyn left the station it’s been tearing up the tracks all over town building a huge reputation within the music community This little high energy three piece blues-rock band from Spring, Texas has easily become one of the hottest acts in the Houston Area delivering original music with a unique sound along with classic rock and blues covers that will please any crowd TreynWrek delivers a mix of originality, passion and they are devoted to putting on one hell of a show that you do not want to miss!! TreynWrek consist of Trey Dryden (Lead Guitar & Vocals), James “MudBug” Breaux (Bass Guitar) and Tim Hutto (Drums) It’s been said that Trey plays guitar like a man on fire and if you have seen him live you would believe it When he picks up his guitar he turns into an animal and unleashes a sound that’s filled with electrified energy and passion James and Tim are the heart beat of the band and pump out a steady groove that keeps the Treyn from slipping too far off the track The word is spreading quickly about this up and coming band whom is surely worth keeping an eye (and an ear) out for “Listen up baby have you heard the news?” There is a TreynWrek a coming!! ALL ABOARD!! Funky Mustard (Houston, TX) http://wwwfunkymustardcom/ The Funky Mustard Band is a project begun by singer/songwriter/guitarist “Larry D White” & drummer/percussionist/singer “Kevin Crenshaw” in the summer of 2002 After playing together for more than 15 years in a couple of different local bands in Houston and performing covers as well as some originals, they decided to change gears and began work on creating “Funky Mustard” a collective musical project of only true originals Their approach to writing music would be one without format or genre With influences like REM, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Weather Report, U2, Joe Sample, Steve Miller, AC/DC, The Allman Brothers, Van Morrison and many others, it is no wonder they have been compared to these and other great artists With the new addition of “Pat Cox” on bass guitar bringing his smooth yet funky rhythms to the table, his brillance of attack and overall style bring these guys to a full boil Lead guitarist/singer “Sparky Parker” adds to the spin on Funky Mustard's rock & roll vibe with driving leads from vintage stock Rapidly recognized as one of the best bands coming out of Houston, Texas, these guys really know how to bring a song to life Their songs take you there and bring you back in one comfortable ride "Open with caution these guys mean business" Be prepared to be taken to an all new musical zone They are never afraid to use strings, horns, or even bagpipes to achieve the mood There's no mistaking these guys for a full blown rock band with a little something extra up their sleeve Breaching all genres and musical categories, there is something for everybody on their fourth disc release “Embarcadero” The opening track “Lonely Hearts” builds on a rock steady beat, yet reggae-ish feel, and reminds us that “All is Fair in Love and War" Turning all amps up to eleven is the track “Good Enough" a ripping dialogue about World Alliance’s and blunders from the past repeating themselves, even today Give a listen to this new style of rock and see why they're being called "The New Enchilada"!!!

    House of Blues presents De La Tierra  September 3 at 8pm De La Tierra are making their US debut with this tour  They recently concluded their South American tour with over ten concerts that included several shows as Metallica’s guest musicians Their influences are metal, trash, groove, funk, pop and rock These four big-name and renowned Latin American musicians are talented and have a great deal of stage experience  They deliver a one-of-its-kind experience at their live shows where they rely on a powerful and honest formation Ever since the release of De La Tierra's album, by the same name, this group has not only awakened expectations among heavy metal fans and each member’s followers, but also the curiosity of the press which in some cases admitted their previous doubts Said doubts were not only based on this being a new group but also because its members come from a variety of genres that may be contrasting in some cases (Sr Flavio of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Alex González of Mana, Andreas Kisser of Sepultura, and Andres Jiménez of ANIMAL /DMente) However, said doubts disappeared regardless of the country or place where this band performed, overcoming all hurdles With their performances in Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Brasil, Paraguay, Chile, Colombia and Mexico during the Vive Latino Festival, De La Tierra left their mark, both at mass concerts as well as at smaller venue performances This earned them a new legion of followers and spurred the interest even more of seeing the group’s live show in this country US audiences have been waiting for almost one year to see them in concert, ever since the news of the release of their first single, “Maldita Historia”

    House of Blues presents Jon McLaughlin, with Joe Paulson  September 5 at 7pm Just four years ago, McLaughlin’s Island Records' debut propelled his song “Beautiful Disaster” up the charts, with “Beating My Heart” following quickly after Hollywood immediately took notice of the young songwriter and didn’t stop at just using several of his songs for films and commercials McLaughlin himself was offered a role in the hit film Enchanted, performing a song that was later nominated for an Academy Award In 2008, he found himself onstage at the Oscars reprising the tune in front of 32 million US viewers In between the hit songs and television appearances, true to his hardworking Midwestern roots, McLaughlin spent his nights opening for the likes of Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, recording with Jason Mraz and writing for other artists But the affable McLaughlin was never quite comfortable with the artistic compromises he made along the way Largely inspired by an extraordinarily close relationship with his fans, he left Island to create an album like he had never done before; one that was filled with lyrics that were a part of him Careful to note that he genuinely loved working with other songwriters and found great meaning in their collaborative work, McLaughlin nonetheless couldn’t shake his need to be completely responsible for the songs he delivered to his extremely loyal fans An ardent social media aficionado, his interaction with his audience influenced him to release this album on his own for the first time Jon began writing the new songs that would ultimately fill Forever if Ever, the rest fell into place just as quickly as his career took off He began producing for the first time, drawing from hours spent with brilliant producers he’d worked with throughout the years He experimented with equipment, including some a former tour manager had sagely told him to explore He wrote exactly what he wanted to, spending weeks upon weeks making sure every lyric, every note was just where he needed it to be And perhaps most importantly, he recorded with the musicians he’d been touring with not only his entire career, but his entire musical life Convinced to use studio musicians by his former record label, McLaughlin was finally able to make an album with his longtime bandmates And it resulting sound plays just like that – warm, familiar, comfortable and seamless They finish each others’ musical sentences “It’s the first time that I’ve listened to something at the end of each day in the studio and I loved it,” Jon says excitedly, “every single day, from beginning to end” But McLaughlin’s liberating euphoria surprisingly isn’t the theme for Forever if Ever Ironically, the album is filled with powerful, agonizing, gut-wrenching songs about love and loss thereof “I guess I would call myself a bit of a romantic,” he starts, “but at the same time I’ve always loved those painful break-up songs There’s something about the agony of love at any level that I am obsessed with, whether it’s that overwhelming love or heartbreaking break up end-of-love There’s nothing more universal than that”

    Sam Houston State University: College of Fine Arts & Mass Communication presents a Guest Artist Concert: The Four Hornsmen For over fifteen years, The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse have captivated and excited audiences with their astonishing musicianship, technique and comical banter They pride themselves in their ability to connect with the audience and break the traditional barriers between musicians and listeners Over the years, The Hornsmen (yes they are aware there is a lady among them…) have performed throughout the United States for audiences at the symphony, college campuses, horn workshops, churches, arts festivals, public schools, public restrooms, farmer's markets, parking lots, hotel lobbies, and interstate rest areas Hailed as “absolute beasts” by some random Facebook user from Georgia, and "another quartet with a groanworthy moniker" by the Commercial Appeal of Memphis, Tennessee, The Hornsmen have performed at venues such as the 2010 Midsouth Horn Workshop in Stillwater, Oklahoma, the 2009 International Horn Symposium in Macomb, Illinois, and a wide selection of notable colleges throughout the United States, in addition to performing as soloists with the St Louis Philharmonic Orchestra and the Compton Heights Band Most recently, they completed a tour of Texas and a residency with Symphony Orchestra Augusta in addition to recording and releasing a CD, entitled “Intuitions” The Hornsmen not only entertain, but also educate They have been called upon to teach masterclasses to students of all ages, present educational outreach programs in schools, and perform side-by-side with students and other world class performers across the country Whether illustrating an elaborate, academic history of the horn or simply providing the answer to "why y'all gotta mash them buttons," the Four Hornsmen take great pleasure in sharing all of the wonderful intricacies about the horn and all of its idiosyncrasies

    Fitzgerald's presents Burn The Boats (Record Release) With Supergrave, Dead Mineral, Ass Rising from under the waves The end of February 2008 was the first time that Stevie (vocals), Floyd (bass/backing vox), and Charles (guitar) first got together in a small, dirty room at Francisco Studios that once served as a storage closet That first meeting would produce a song, and would set the tone for the band as these three would comprise the core of the band that was to become Burn the Boats Both Stevie and Floyd were veterans of the local Houston scene, having played in several bands most notably, and respectively, The Scourge, and Morgue City Stevie and Floyd had met up a couple of times prior to Charles joining, but admittedly, not much progress had been made in those early meetings Once the three were together, the song ideas came rather easily, with Stevie sitting in on drums until a permanent drummer could be added
