Sat, Nov 28, 2015 - Gabbi and Race Quiet

Gabbi showed signs of being a singer from a very early age. She began

singing a cappella in elementary and middle school talent shows. When she

was 12, she performed for the first time at Coffee Amici with Dave Phillips.

Then onto singing at fairs, festivals, and being a member of her middle and

high school show choirs; currently a member of the award winning Findlay

First Edition show choir directed by Kevin Manley. She also has an avid

interest in Journalism, hoping to soon be an Entertainment Editor for Findlay

High School’s newspaper, The Blue & Gold.

Gabbi is continuing to perform at Coffee Amici with Dave and several of his

music students and has her own set on some Saturday evenings. Now at 16

years old, music and performing is her foremost passion in life. Gabbi has a

distinctive and expressive voice and a style that’s all her own. She is always

striving to find songs to perform that she feels connected to and challenges

her vocally.

Gabbi appreciates all different genres and styles of music, from artists such

as Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Whinehouse, The Beatles, among many

others. She plans on continuing to sing at a local level, and after high school

to further her career in music. Gabbi has her sights set on Belmont

University in Nashville, Tennessee, where she will major in Commercial

Music with a Music Business Emphasis for voice.

Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.

Sat, Dec 5, 2015 - The Jack Schilb Trio MediumMedium

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, 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.
