    Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

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

     

    EventJoshHoyer

    Josh 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 rich, intensely soulful vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.

    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 Benjamin Kushner (guitar), Blake DeForest (trumpet), Mike Keeling (bass), 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.

    On January 26th, 2018, Hoyer released "The End of the Night", a 3-song EP and solo side project with veteran Nashville songwriters Jay Knowles (Harry Connick Jr, Blake Shelton), and Jon Coleman (Trace Adkins). In the spring, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal are set to record their fourth full length record at Make Believe Studios in Omaha, NE, with Grammy-nominated engineer, Rick Carson. The album will be released in Europe in August of 2018, followed by a 7-week European tour before its US release.

    In 2017, Josh was featured as a contestant on NBC's The Voice, and the band completed their first European tour; a 27-city stint capped with a live album release from their show in Brussels, Belgium.The hard working band completed several national tours from 2015-2017, 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 touring schedule took them from coast to coast, including several major summer music festivals.

    In 2016, 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. 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.

    "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

    KrisLagerEventHeader
    A genuine musical journeyman, Kris Lager brings a feel good musical experience everywhere he goes.  One of those rare and dynamic performers who deliver a combination of musical ability and charisma, Kris Lager will  make you want to dance, clap, and sing along creating a fun and interactive show laced with road tested songs, and contagious grooves. 

    “I wanna lift up your spirits through song and dance!”, Says Kris Lager.  “When music is created from a place of love and delivered with good intentions it is undeniably powerful. There’s nothing better than making the people around you feel good.  The ultimate compliment for me is when folks come up to me at after a show and say I was having a horrible day or I was in a bad mood and now I feel great.”

    Based out of Omaha, Nebraska Kris Lager Band has been zig zagging the country spreading their brand of “Feel Good Funk & Heavy Soul” for over 15 years.  This spring KLB will release an album called ‘Love Songs & Life Lines’.  It was recorded at White Wall Studios earlier this year in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and mixed by Grammy Award Winning Producer, Jim Gaines (Santana, Van Morrison, Steve Miller, Stevie Ray Vaughan).  The album is a collection of love songs, and various heart tugging tunes featuring a more acoustic and Folksy/Americana side of Kris’ songwriting.  The recording is a slight departure from their ‘Swaggering Rock ’n’ Roll’ and Blues infused electric guitar grooves that make up a lot their 2016 release ‘Rise & Shine’.


    Kris Lager Band is quietly establishing themselves as one of the most storied and treasured groups in the Midwest’s music scene.  They honed their skills for many years in and around Nebraska when in 2007 they were invited to hit the road as indigenous.  They backed up frontman and guitar hero, Mato Nanji for over two years and were featured on Indigenous’ Jamie Candiliro Produced (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson) Vanguard Records release ‘Broken Lands’.  You might also recognize Kris Lager from working and touring alongside Andy Frasco & The U.N. The group covered 3 of Kris’ songs on their 2014 release ‘Half A Man’ and have made ‘Sunny Day Souldier’ a staple at their live shows.  This year they also featured the composition on their Ruf Records released live album, ‘Songs From The Road’. 


    The Legendary Bluesman, Tab Benoit is also a fan.  Proclaiming “These guys are the real deal! Go see them whenever they come to your town!”  He produced and recorded KLB’s 2013 release ‘Platte River Runaway’ at his home studio in Houma, Louisiana.  Soon after they worked with Tab Benoit they went to San Francisco and recorded with Bay area funk maestros, Monophonics at their Transistor Studios. The result was 2014’s ‘Heavy Soul & Boogie Trance’ mixed by Orgone’s Sergio Rios.  The release caught the attention of Ohio’s Colemine Records, who released two of the tracks as a 45 and also featured the release on their internationally distributed Soul Slabs LP.

    The Kaopectones

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

     

    eventKaopectonesThe Kaopectones are Kansas City's most unique "Rock" musical offering. Four veteran players reproducing timeless music from 4 decades of Rock. And all without the use of prerecorded or sequenced backing tracks, Auto-Tune, or other gadgets and tricks designed to fool the listener. Real music played by real people. The way it is supposed to be.

    Make no mistake, The Kaopectones are, first and foremost, a "Rock" band. They chose the "Rock" designation, as it encompasses much more than the traditional sub genre labels like "Rock and Roll", "Classsic Rock", "Pop Rock" or "Progressive Rock". The Kaopectones run the entire spectrum, stylistically, while never forgetting that the "Rock" attitude and approach are what drives all of the music they play. Loud and proud, with the edge and drive necessary to put the music across to the listener in the manner envisioned by the original artists.
