Sat, Mar 5, 2016 - The Davenport Twins Quiet

At a very young age The Davenport Twins realized they had an amazing ear for music. Alex started learning the drums, while Nick took to the guitar. Now that they are grown, they have become excellent musicians. Alex plays piano, drums, Cajon, and sings. Nick plays guitar, sings, and composes their original music. We hope you enjoy the original songs,  as well as their take on some old favorites.


Sat, Mar 12, 2016 - Annie and Rod Capps Quiet



"Watch out for Annie Capps. Her latest recording and recent live shows are proof that yet another major talent is developing here in Michigan." Matt Watroba, WDET "Folks Like Us"

"Singer/Songwriter, Annie Capps is heir to the long history of folk music as a medium for social commentary. At the same time, she is clearly a folksinger for the 21st century, using her art to explore the psychology of the individual to engage in a little fret therapy." (Stephanie Kadel-Taras, Ann Arbor Observer)

With her sweet, wry, perspective on things, Annie puts herself and a host of other subjects on a laboratory slide, peers in close, and makes discoveries that ring satisfyingly true. Drawing on three decades of wide ranging influences, Annie offers a little bit of something for everyone. Complimented always by the artful musicianship of her husband, Rod Capps, they create contemporary folk music that is as sophisticated as it is disarming. With instrumentation that includes acoustic guitars, tenor banjo, mandolin, and fiddle, they continue to defy classification, incorporating hints of country, a dusting of old time bluegrass and a pinch of jazz, offering thoughtful, exuberant songs that have at their core a warm, funky groove and a soulful glow. As a trio, they are joined by drummer/percussionist Christine Schinker who kicks things up with her easy rhythm and warm harmony vocals.

Annie Capps wrote her first song at age 11; shes been involved in music ever since, fronting a variety of Detroit-area bands, most of which included Rod on either bass or guitar. Their inexorable move toward a more stripped-down, introspective and masterfully musical take on the singer/songwriter genre has earned them a host of Detroit Music Award nominations and enchanted audiences in coffeehouses and festivals throughout Michigan and beyond.

Some of their career highlights include:

* Opened for: Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart, Tracy Grammar and Jim Henry, David Bromberg
* Shared the stage with Mustard's Retreat, Jan Krist, Kitty Donohoe, Jim Bizer, David Barrett, Matt Watroba, Whit Hill, Tangerine Trousers, The Milroys, Ralston Bowles, Jo Serrapere, and Wanderin' Wheel to name just a few.
* Festival appearances include: The Ann Arbor Folk Festival, Wheatland Music Festival, Noreast'r Festival, Thumbfest, Arts, Beats and Eats, the Ann Arbor Art Fair, and the Muskegon Summer Celebration.
* Appeared at venues such as, The Ark, Trinity House Theater, Mama's Coffee House, Off-the-Wall Coffee House, and Uncommon Ground in Chicago.
* Radio stations playing their music: WCSX's Over Easy program with Pam Rossi (94.7 FM Detroit) and the Folks Like Us program with Matt Watroba on WDET, Old Front Porch (WXOU), Valley Folk (WFCR 88.5 fm), WJPF (Akron, OH), WQKL (107.1 Ann Arbor), WCBN (88.3 Ann Arbor).

Annie is a member of the Yellow Room Gang, a group of renowned singer/songwriters who meet monthly to share food and new works in progress and perform together in various incarnations and venues.

She is also very involved in the local music community, organizing events, hosting songwriter showcases and coordinating local networking meetings.

Their fourth album, One Big Show, is their first release on Yellow Room Records and features 12 new original songs (and one surprising but perfect cover). With this brand new recording in tow, the duo promises to challenge and captivate you with their ever evolving musical path, while always staying true to their own unique style.

Sat, Mar 19, 2016 - The Jack Schilb Trio Quiet

I will be joined Saturday night by two accomplished musicians. Don Beyer on bass, and Chuck Mauk on drums, who (I think) are one of the best rhythm sections you're likely to hear. We're working on a CD of original tunes which we'll perform, along with a variety of familiar songs. Looking forward to a fun filled evening, hope to see you all there.


A former member of the bluegrass band the “Diamonds in the Rough,” I’ve been playing music in different genres for many years. Beginning with a rock and roll band during high school days, and moving to acoustic folk rock and an emphasis on songwriting throughout the college years. After a middle age hiatus, the past fifteen years have been busy with several musical endeavers.Am currently playing in an acoustic duo with blues harmonica player Dan “Mudfoot” Hubbs, playing occasionally with a group of fellow songwriters from Bowling Green called the “Long Lost Brothers,” working on a jazz / swing trio with an upright bassist and a trumpet player, and of course playing solo gigs.I enjoy trying to cover those songs that are familiar, but not heard that often. The goal being to hear people say, “That’s a great song, I haven’t heard that forever.” Songwriting, however, will always be my first love. and to that end have been writing many things the past few years.

Sat, Apr 9, 2016 - Two Years Later LoudLoudLoud

Jamie and Zak met in 2011 at an open mic and two years passed before they saw each other again, reuniting through a mutual friend in 2013. They bonded over their shared love for making music and decided to put their talents to good use. In 2014 they put their serious business faces on and started recording their EP and putting together their band: Two Years Later. They've evolved into a captivating duo that engages their fans with their percussive pop rock and catchy pop melodies. Jamie's lyrics bring a hypnotic depth to the invigorating rhythms that Zak lays down. Their music is thought provoking, infectious, and fun for loyal fans and first time listeners alike.


Sat, Apr 16, 2016 - Mike Vial Quiet

On his previous albums of folk-rock, Mike Vial sings about searching for true love, taking chances, and facing life’s transitions. These themes mirror the songwriter’s ambitious journeys over the years: He left his teaching position to pursue music full time, married writer Natalie Burg, celebrated the birth of their first baby (a girl!), and started a songwriting challenge to write a song a week in 2014. Mike performs 150+ gigs a year. His vocal style is comparable to James Taylor and Ari Hest, but his guitar playing stands out with its own voice, mixing elements of jazz, folk, and rock. He has been showcase performer for Folk Alliance, The LCC Radio M897 Spotlight Artist in 2015, and winner of the Ypsi Songwriting Festival in 2010 and Lansing’s Blue Owl Songwriting Award in 2014.


Sat, Apr 23, 2016 - Eric Duling Quiet

Local Professor Eric Duling has been playing guitar in Northwest Ohio for the past thirty years, sometimes with bands (most recently, the Black Tie Guys) and sometimes solo.  Among the most influential musicians to form his picking style are James Taylor, Jim Croce, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, John Prine, and George Harrison.  The musical selections are designed to trigger some good memories, put a smile on your face and get your toe tapping. 

Sat, Apr 30, 2016 - Scott Shaull Quiet

Local favorite, Scott Shaull.


Sat, Jul 16, 2016 - Greg Mahan Quiet

Mahan’s bread-and-butter is elegant, graceful and often poetic Americana music, with songs built around his sturdy acoustic playing nd imagery-laden lyrics. On Daydream, there are some of Mahan’s best ever songs in that style (the minimal title track and the slow-burner, “Fireflies”), but the rest of the album shows that he is not limited to any one specific “genre” when writing. Calypso rhythms imbue “Mento” with a sassy strut, sounding like a weird mesh of Graceland-era Paul Simon and neo-Eastern European revivalists like DeVotchKa, while “Wink ’n’ a Smile” closes the album on a playful, sunny Pop note. Producer Brian Lovely helps achieve a crisp sound that allows the songs to breath and the musicians that flesh out the arrangements (with everything from strings to drums) perform flawlessly. Thirty-Five-Cent Daydream sounds as good as any “Roots” album you’ll hear this year, local or otherwise. Here’s a prediction for ya — local NPR affiliate WNKU is going to play the shit out of this one. Other programmers would be smart to follow suit. -Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat
