The EarRegulars

The EarRegulars

The EarRegulars feature leader Jon-Erik Kellso on trumpet and Matt Munisteri on guitar and feature guest artists every week. The play swinging, melodic classic jazz, i.e. everything from New Orleans style through the tin pan alley classics, the swing era, and mainstream jazz.

They don't play half hour long solos, although it's not unusual for a song to last 10 minutes or more; they like to take our time and enjoy exploring ensemble improv', a conversational style. They approach traditional jazz in an open-minded, in-the-moment way.

This band often smiles and laughs (yes--even on stage!), and is not ashamed of this.

Jack Grace Band

Jack Grace Band

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT…

“It sounds like Cole Porter meets Gene Autry.” — Clyde Haberman, New York Times

“He’s like that Cash kid, but good.” — Jerry Lee Lewis on hearing Jack live

“…a skill at painting perfect vignettes with their songs – some humorous, some heartbreaking – but always drawn from real life.”— Exclaim (Canada)

“If you don’t laugh and cry at the same time as Grace and his gracefully loose band navigate their way through such gems as ‘If You’re Gonna Raise a Drunk’ and ‘Morning Margaritas’, you better check your pulse. You might be disgracefully dead.” — James Reaney, London Free Press (Canada)

“He has been known to praise whiskey and large glasses of beer.” — New York Times

“A bona fide Country Rock Originator.” Kilkenny Advertiser (Ireland)

“…f***ing splendid…you can practically taste the whiskey dripping off the songs.”– Village Voice

A new useful article appeared on the website

“The man slings more than a few sparks from his big, hollow-body Gibson….what sets his songs apart from the rest of the country or alt-country scene is his laugh-out-loud, absurdist wit.” —New York Free Press

“The only cowboy unashamed to clutch a martini glass.” — The Virginian Pilot

“One of the city’s most skilled and personable stars.” — Time Out NY

“NYC someday will brag about its great legends of country music, that’s right we said country, and among those names will be the engaging, hardworking, witty, and schmoozin’ and boozin’ Grace.” — Village Voice

Mulebone

Mulebone

Mulebone is virtuosic multi-instrumentalist John Ragusa and New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee Hugh Pool. The launching pad for their musical expression is traditional blues played with guts, technique and a without-a-net sense of adventure. The word is transcendent.

W.C.Handy winning author Don Wilcox wrote, "Mulebone takes old blues and folk music into space as well as anyone since Led Zeppelin covered Sonny Boy Williamson.”

Hugh Pool plays the National Steel, electric, cigar box and acoustic guitars, harmonica, stomps on a boot-board, and sings lead vocals all with a mouth full of whiskey and a giant heart. John Ragusa plays all manner of flutes, fifes and tin whistles, the cornet, conch shell, jews harp, and well…anything he can put his lips on. He also sings harmony vocals, perfectly complimenting Pool's. The result is a sum greater than the parts; more sound, texture and groove than 2 people should be legally allowed to make.

Jake Jarrett Walker Trio

Jake Jarrett Walker Trio

Jake Walker is a native New York Blues singer and guitarist. A regular on the European touring circuit, Jake Walker is known for his sweet, melodic, and dynamic guitar phrasing, as well as his soulful vocals and strong original material. Jake began his professional career in the Blues backing JSP recording artist James Peterson, and his son, Lucky Peterson, in clubs and restaurants on the west coast of Florida. Returning to New York, Jake established his own voice in the competitive NYC Blues scene, fronting bands such as the neo-burlesque NYC Blues Devils (weekly house band at The Cutting Room), and running several popular local Blues Jams. A simple live recording of one of these jams, posted on Myspace, caused no small buzz in 2006, earning Jake "Artist of The Week" at Big City R&B Magazine, regular airplay on blues FM and internet radio, and three overseas tours, all before Jake had recorded his first proper album! In 2008, multi-platinum producer and engineer Elliot Mazer (Neil Young, "Harvest", The Band, "The Last Waltz) showed up at one of Jake Walker's shows at Ashford and Simpson's Sugar Room club, and signed Jake to his new label, LeftTurn. The result was the "Confidence Man" LP, which Mazer also produced. The CD earned universal critical praise, and helped take Jake's presence in the international Blues circuit to a new level, earning him the sobriquet "The Ambassador of New York Blues", after many subsequent tours in England, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Italy, and Serbia
