11390275_831685846867287_7580315547106982741_nFollywood Productions presents a Summer Tribute on Saturday, June 13th at The Windjammer on Isle of Palms. The music line up for the evening features Guilt Ridden Troubadour, 54 Bicycles & BYOG. Doors for the event ooen at 8pm with the show starting at 9pm. Tickets are $10 ADV / $12 DOS and are available for purchase here.

Guilt Ridden Troubadour stands on the songwriting of Reid Stone to cohesively achieve a psychedelic roots rock sound. GRT’s sound is lyrically-driven alt-country and Americana with the Southern rock edge.

54 Bicycles is comprised of several dedicated Widespread Panic fans and friends who bring the music of their favorite band to the local Charleston music scene and to have a great time in the process. In addition to playing select Widespread tunes, they also play a number of cover songs by artists from JJ Cale to Pink Floyd and everything in between.

BYOG is a 5-piece jam driven vehicle. Their original material is crafted with instinctive groove, while they tend to stick close to their roots, covering artists like The Band, The Allman Brothers Band, and The Grateful Dead.

The Tarlatans Announce EP Release Show at Charleston Music Hall

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

Charleston based Rock-Roots band The Tarlatans will be celebrating the release of their highly anticipated EP “Good Luck” at The Charleston Music Hall with a show including Charleston favorite Steven Fiore and Volcanoes in The Kitchen on Saturday August 16th at 8 PM.

NEW TARLATAN PROMO PICBeginning in February 2014, The Tarlatans recorded with acclaimed musician, composer, producer, Jay Clifford (Jump, Little Children) for a six-song EP.  The recording features four new songs as well as updated versions of older songs including the regional radio hit, “Been Dreaming.”  Clifford’s influence on The Tarlatans is similar to how most musicians feel about him, as they cite him and Jump Little Children as major influences. Says drummer Blake Shorter, ‘”Now that the process of recording the EP is over and we can actually sit back and listen to the final results, we’re so thrilled that we were able to have Jay Clifford as our producer. After working with Jay I think we all agree that the man is a musical genius, and some of the things musically that he guided us and inspired us to do worked out really well.” Lead guitar player and songwriter Ryan Williams continues, “We had a blast making the EP, working with Jay, and recording at Hello Telescope and Charleston Sound.  This record is quite a step up from our self-made album a while back. We couldn’t be more proud of the EP or more excited to have a great sounding product.”  In turn, Clifford was excited to be working with the band: “The Tarlatans have a sincerity in their songwriting that puts them in the same class as The Avett Brothers and The Lumineers.” 

Along with G. Love, the record has been blessed by the likes of Josh Kaler (Slow Runner / Butch Walker), and string work from local heavyweights, Micah Gangwer, Peter Kiral, and Norbert Lewandowski.

Over the past two years The Tarlatans have played every type of venue, bar, and club in the Southeast and always look forward to being in their adopted hometown of Charleston for shows.  Playing The Charleston Pour House with The Wild Feather, The Music Farm with Jars of Clay, and headlining The Windjammer have all been bucket list items for the band, and they are crossing another item off the list by performing their new tunes at The Charleston Music Hall.

Tickets for The Tarlatans EP Release show are available online at charlestonmusichall.com, at the Charleston Music Hall Box office, 37 John Street (Tues. – Fri. 10am – 6pm843-853-2252), at Monster Music and Movies or Cats Music or at the Etix Hotline: 1-800-514-3849. Tickets at the door Day Of Show will be $13.50.

 

Skinful Halloween

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

993429_10151996702142780_1635479264_nI initially wrote about Skinful Halloween awhile back but as the location kept changing, I decided to rewrite the feature with the final details. My vet and friend, Dr. Brian King, has put on this party for 13 years and it is by far one of the best parties in Charleston. This year the event and organizers need the support of the fans as costs to put on this party has escalated after permitting issues in Hollywood, then an Edisto Plantation got pulled, followed by issues from the city and Music Farm backing out. If you have ever hosted an event, then you know what is involved in overhead for renting a venue, permits, vendors, musical talent, tents, security, medical, set ups and so much more. So here are the details….

Skinful Halloween 2013 hosted by Flavor Flav will be held on October 26th 2013 at Brick House Kitchen from 2pm-2am. Music will be provided by Ozomatli, Dirt Nasty, Blowfly, The Dubplates and more plus DJs, circus acts, burlesque and dance, art, video mapping, a silent disco, massive laser light show and the sickest lighting and sound set-up in the Southeast. They will be limiting the amount of guests and keeping the party contained inside the fenced in area. Coolers are welcome. The party will start at 2pm and will abide by the 11pm noise ordinance. To keep the buzz going, guest can enjoy a silent disco from 11pm till 2am. (I did this after Widespread Panic in Mexico a few years back and it is a nice alternative to keep the party going.)

Music Line Up:
3:00pm-5pm: The Dubplates with Zumjay
5:15pm-6:30pm: Cee Know The Doodlebug from The Digable Planets and The CFO Band
6:45pm till 7:45pm: Blowfly
8pm till 9:45pm: Ozomatli
10pm till 11pm: Dirt Nasty

Silent Disco Schedule:
11pm till 12am on Channel A: Jake B vs KlipArt or Channel B: FullHass
12am till 1am  on Channel A: DJ Fred Krugrrr or Channel B: Circe and Rage United
1am till 2am on Channel A: MJ12 or Channel B: DJ Magnetik

There will be some on-site parking plus shuttles, cabs and limos companies running special rates. Even though this a normal weekend concert at Brick House Kitchen, there will be Sheriffs and Private Security. There will also be EMTs on site in case of emergencies.

While this is a rockin’ night, it also benefits the Tanzania Education Foundation and Keepers of the Wild.

Triple Album Release Show at Charleston Music Hall

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

1274586_10201568259555662_1845057862_oCharleston Music Hall is proud to announce a triple album release show from three of Charleston’s hardest working musicians, Guilt Ridden Troubadour, Gaslight Street, and Ryan Bonner on October 12 at the Charleston Music Hall. Guilt Ridden Troubadour will be releasing “Gone,” Gaslight Street will be releasing “Heavy Wind,’ and Ryan Bonner will be releasing “Only When It’s Burning”. Everyone who buys a ticket online will receive a free song from each of the albums. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the concert will begin at 8:00. Advanced tickets are on sale at eTix.

Guilt Ridden Troubadour’s sound is more alt-country and Americana and the music is more lyrically-driven while still bringing the Southern rock edge. Gaslight Street’s soul music will never go out of style as it melds pure Southern rock with charismatic vocals, traipsing the boundaries of blues and funk. Ryan Bonner has a thoughtful-nuanced attention to detail as his most serious songs content wise have the most whimsical music attached to it and the songs where the melody is the most relaxed tend to be the most personal and in-depth.
