    Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

     

    EventJoshHoyerJosh Hoyer & Soul Colossal's combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer's honest lyrics and his soulful (sometimes in-your-face) vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.

    The magic of their live show caught the attention of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), who joined with the band to record their third full-length album. Their most ambitious project to date, Running From Love, was recorded at Nashville's historic Sound Emporium, and once again features Hoyer's trademark vocals and the band's signature groove. The album was released on April 8, 2016, on Silver Street Records, and is available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.

    Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal in 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning five-piece band includes some of the area's most revered and accomplished musicians. Joining Hoyer (keyboards/vocals) is Mike Dee (sax), James Fleege (bass), Benjamin Kushner (guitar), and Larell Ware (drums). Inspired by the sounds of Stax, Motown, Muscle Shoals, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal - to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles.

    The hard working band completed several national tours in 2015 and 2016, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states each year, including opening for George Clinton, Charles Bradley, Booker T Jones, and Muscle Shoals Revue. Their year-round tour schedule took them from coast to coast, including several major summer music festivals. The band's fevered pace continues in 2017, with Hoyer appearing as a contestant on Season 12 of the hit TV music show The Voice, a European tour, a live album release, numerous festival appearances, and a new EP in the works.

    "If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer. The Lincoln, Nebraska, soul shouter, and his band of merry soulsters, Soul Colossal, deliver a sound so big, so funky, so wring-the-sweat-out-of-you energetic that it reaches through the speakers and shakes you until you start moving to its groove." - No Depression

    Igor and the Red Elvises

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

    EventRedElvisThis is a Thursday early show!!!
    Igor Yuzov was born in Germany, raised in Ukraine and studied in Russia. He grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock'n'roll was illegal. A rebellious streak, however, led him to seek out the forbidden music. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his “Folk'n'Roll" band Limpopo and was personally greeted by Ronald Reagan. In 1993, Limpopo won Ed McMahon's Star Search and their popularity began to blossom. In 1995, Igor dreamed that Elvis Presley came to him and told him to start playing rock'n'roll. Igor and his Russian friends became Red Elvises and gave street performances on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade. As their crowds grew larger, the City of Santa Monica ordered them to discontinue their street performances. Evolving over the years, Igor’s music has been labeled "Siberian Surf Rock” which contains humorous lyrics and grooves that forces his audience to dance. Over the past 20 years, Red Elvises have constantly toured all over the world with occasional breaks to record new music and to participate in film and television projects.

    As an independent band, Red Elvises have produced 12 studio albums, two live albums, a live concert DVD, and a Greatest Hits compilation. Some of their most notable film contributions include music and or performances in “Six String Samurai”, “Mail Order Bride”, “Armageddon”, “Skippy”, “Melrose Place”, “Fastlane", “Penn and Teller's Sin City Extravaganza”, “VH-1 Behind the Music”, and “MTV”. Red Elvises have performed for large festivals, private parties, and played on massive stages such as 2005's Live 8 Benefit Concert. No matter where they perform, Igor & Red Elvises always bring the party with them.

    Divas On Fire - Halloween Party

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

     

    EventDiavsonfireJoin us for the Uncle Bo's Halloween Party featuring the Divas On Fire!!!
    The roads through Northwest Arkansas lead to Kansas City, Tulsa and Dallas. Musicians in our area learn well the rich musical heritage and famous sounds of our neighboring cities. We grow up hearing the strains of swing, jazz and blues. Our music venue, George’s Majestic Lounge, has presented live music since 1927 and features national touring acts regularly. We take it all in and we give it back to the world in our homegrown blue eyed soul. Music is part of who are from the inside out.

    A thriving music culture with a long history has continued through today. Our music scene has continued to gain national attention through local favorite Barrett Baber’s appearance as a finalist on “The Voice” singing competition. Our community produces the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ event, which is the second largest motorcycle rally in the U.S. Event producers make a point to put local musicians front and center for audiences.

    Since making our debut at Bikes, Blues & BBQ two years ago, the Divas have been busy playing regional festivals and club gigs. We’ve been focusing on writing original material and honing arrangements. You’ve heard the adage “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. We are a group made stronger still by the experience of our individual members. Divas On Fire is a way for synergy to take over and magnify our strengths in an emotionally powerful connection to our audiences. Drawing on our individual experiences as songwriters and touring artists, we fan the flames to give audiences a moving experience they can see, hear and feel deep down.
