"As good as they are, Jeff Jensen’s recordings do not prepare you for the first time you experience his live show.  Things start out as normal as the singer and guitarist does a couple original songs. Suddenly, the spirit moves him, transforming Jensen into a whirling dervish on stage as his passion for the music is expressed through blistering guitar runs and boundless energy seldom seen from other performers." - Blues Blast Magazine

Jony James is overflowing with soul. It drips down from his hands onto his guitar, in lyrically urgent bends and intense ethereal assaults. It pours out through his weathered, leathery voice, telling vivid, open-minded tales of a tumultuous life, with his impressive song writing skills. His jovial, yet pensive nature is evident in both his music and stage presence. He is often compared to Stevie Ray Vaughn, however, his persistance on being “Jony” and playing Jony James’, original “Survival Blues”, sets him apart from the rest of the Blues Shows currently on the circuit.

FREE BUFFET 6-7:30pm with ticket purchase.  Buffet includes: Italian sausage with onions and peppers, roasted  red potatoes with herbs, baked penne pasta, mixed green salad, rolls and butter, and homemade cookies.

This is a very special "Evening with..." performance.

SYML is the moodier solo venture of Barcelona frontman and Seattle native Brian Fennell. As SYML, Fennell is more textural and sensory than Barcelona's piano rock, framing his quiet, introspective songwriting in low-key synth-augmented soundscapes with austere piano parts and spectral vocals. Debuting in 2016 with the Hurt for Me EP, SYML found success with song placements in a number of high-profile television shows like Elementary, Scream, and Teen Wolf.

Donna the Buffalo just passed the marker as their 25th year as a band and have proven to be a consistent purveyor of American music. What’s the recipe? To be sure, it’s infused with more spices than you’ll find at a Cajun cookout by way of a southern-fried, rockin’ country old-time jamboree. 

“For the dizzying array of styles and genres with which they work, Donna The Buffalo maintain a surprising level of consistency. The New York-based band has played around with folk, zydeco, and many other musical ideas over the course of their 25-year career, but they retain a sharp focus that has helped them create some truly lasting music,” writes Elmore Magazine.
