Mandolin Orange_Alex LoopsSeries Show Mandolin Orange (w/ Lizzy Ross opening) – Wed., Nov. 4, 2015 – The road has been good to Mandolin Orange since the 2013 release of ‘This Side of Jordan.’ NPR called the album “effortless and beautiful,” naming it one of the year’s best folk/Americana releases, while Magnet dubbed it “magnificent,” and American Songwriter said it was “honest music, shot through with coed harmonies, sweeping fiddle, mandolin, acoustic guitar and the sort of unfakeable intimacy that bonds simpatico musicians like Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.” The record earned them performances everywhere from the iconic Newport Folk Festival to Pickathon, as well as tours with Willie Watson, Gregory Alan lizzy-rossIsakov, Season PassesThe Wood Brothers, and more. LIZZY ROSS – A popular staple at the Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival, Lizzy Ross has been described as, “folksy, jazzy, bluesy in all the best senses of those words. It’s like country music the way you wish country music would be rather than the redoubt of pop triflngs it is… a voice like cigarettes and the smoothest whiskey you’ve ever tasted.” – Stephen Markley, Chicago Redeye. Music starts at 9 p.m. $12 adv / $15 doors. Season Passes accepted. Online tickets HERE.

Big Daddy Love - Promo PhotoBig Daddy Love – Day After Thanksgiving Party – Fri., Nov. 27, 2015 – Big Daddy Love is a five-piece band with a unique and natural blend of rock, roots and grass that they call ‘Appalachian Rock’. Twin leads of Stratocaster riffs and soaring Allman-esque slide guitar on the one hand, and 5-string Scruggs / Fleck style banjo on the other– like a typical Southern rock line-up, just replacing the second guitar with the banjo– punctuate and emphasize the lead vocals. These contrasting voices are anchored by a rhythm section that is equally at home in a groove or driving the bus with country, swing, funk or straight ahead rock. Big Daddy Love’s high-energy performances, fueled by this combination of fiery vocals, striking instrumental dynamics that range from bombastic assaults to soothing grooves, have garnered them a strong, passionate following throughout their home region. Jaime and Jacob Woodall will lead a jam collective for the opening set of the night. Music starts 8 p.m. Tickets $10 adv / $12 doors. Buy them online HERE. Sorry, no season passes accepted.
