Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi (Southern Supper)- Friday, September 13, 2019

*** 6:30 SHOW IS SOLD OUT.  PLEASE CONTACT IF INTERESTED IN A LATER, 9:00-11:00 SHOW ***

 

Danny Brooks has long been referred to as ‘The Real Deal’ and after years of honing his writing and performing skills in Canada, picking up nominations and awards along the way, Brooks is at home in the Texas music scene and traveling throughout the USA. Mixing Southern Soul, Americana, Blues and Gospel, he is recognized as a prolific writer and dynamic live performer, and is constantly on the road. Making Llano Texas his home (just west of Austin), 'Texassippi Soul Man' Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi released their second ‘Texas’ studio recording ‘This World Is Not Your Friend’, in January of 2015. The upcoming CD "Get Your Joy On" will be much like the previous CD with a ‘stripped down’ approach. Brooks' music features the duo he has with his wife Lil Miss Debi who sings and plays cajon/percussion while he plays assorted guitars/slide/cigar-box/stomp-board and harp-rack.

Brooks has worked with Legendary producers Jim Dickinson on ‘Its A Southern Thing’ which received high praise from Cub Coda (Smokin’ In The Boy Room/All Music Guide), Johnny Sandlin, (Capricorn Records Producer) on ‘No Easy Way Out’, that featured the legendary Muscle Shoals musicians David Hood, Spooner Oldham, Bonnie Bramlett. Frazer Mohawk (Elektra) and bassist Tim Drummond (Bob Dylan/Neil Young/James Brown) referred to Brooks as the real deal on NorthernBlues recording ‘Saved! The NorthernBlues Gospel Allstars’. On the first two Soulsville recordings, Brooks credits Richard Bell, (Janice Joplin/The Band/Colin Linden) who produced and played keyboards as preparing him for the world stage. It should be noted that Louis X. Erlanger (Mink DeVille guitartist) produced "Texassippi Soul Man".

'Texassippi Soul Man' Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi have been touring constantly, promoting and building their reputation throughout North America. As a duo, they make a good racket on assorted guitars/stomp-board/harp-rack/cajon/percussion and singing with all their might, with an Elite 3 way Yorkville PA System. As situations dictate, they perform with both Canadian and American bands. Info on the Canadian and American bands is available on the website. Their duo live show has drawn comparisons to White Stripes/Black Keys/Keb Mo/Allman Bros. and North Mississippi Allstars.

Crucial Music in Studio City California is representing 25 of Brooks’ songs to film/tv/commercials and has successfully placed ‘You’ll Find A Way’, a soul ballad from Rock This House aired on ABC’s TV Show The Fosters, as well as "Caught a Fire" from "Texassippi Soul Man" on ABC's New Girl.

“He’s that special musical jewel that we’ve never really had in Canada ... he’s our Solomon Burke, Otis Redding, Taj Mahal and Ralph Stanley rolled into one performer”. Chris Darton/Maple Blues Magazine

“Listening to Danny Brooks is like driving out of Memphis, TN on a sunny Saturday morning into the Mississippi Delta listening to WDIA. It's one of those things where time stands still. A dash of Eddie Hinton, Solomon Burke, Rev. James Cleveland and Howlin' Wolf are all ingredients in Danny's soulful musical stew'” states Greg Martin of the Kentucky Headhunters.

"Son for a white boy, you sho’ nuff got a sun tan on the inside” Brownie McGhee

Maybe Greg Quill, noted musician and arts writer for the Toronto Star, sums it up the best: 'This is Roots music of great distinction.'

Southern Supper with Dan Walsh- Thursday, October 17, 2019

Canadian singer/songwriter multi-instrumentalist, Dan Walsh is already well known for his collaborations with a number of talented musicians. He’s added his bluesy-bluegrass signature style to more than 40 albums and toured across North America, Europe and Australia.

For many years Walsh was a key member of Fred Eaglesmith’s band, The Flying Squirrels, where he played more than a couple of hundred gigs a year and shared the stage with the likes of Willie Nelson, Little Feat, Delbert McClinton, Willie P. Bennett and the Del McCoury Band.

In 2012, Walsh re-invented himself as a solo looping artist and released his 3rd solo album entitled “Outta The Jam.” Adam Dawson from Broken Jukebox writes:

“Outta The Jam is technically the third release from sideman extraordinaire, Walsh, but it’s the first one the bearded one sings on. The addition of vocals is a major plus to me as instrumental music gets really boring really fast no matter how great it is. While the instrumentation, specifically Walsh’s flawless guitar work, is still the star on this one, his songwriting and vocals are a welcome addition.

The presiding sound of the record to me, is fantastic white guy funk teamed with gritty Warren Haynes like slide guitar riffs. The songs themselves range from the silly, playful “Beard”, an ode to Walsh’s defining physical feature, to the seriously, personal “Naked Emperor” and “Our Stairs” which documents the feelings in the aftermath of a failed relationship.

I was impressed throughout the entire album with Walsh’s previously missing vocal talents and his ability to find the right sounds to perfectly compliment them”.

Since going solo, Walsh has performed over 420 shows across Canada including opening for Ike Stubblefield and Col. Bruce Hampton.

Our special menu, for this Supper includes Blackened Chicken; Shrimp Creole served over white rice; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins; Apple Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.

PLEASE NOTE.....There are NO physical tickets.  Nothing is sent to you in the mail, or via email.  Once your purchase is made, through Pay Pal, a notification is sent to me, and your name is then put on the guest list for event.

Southern Supper with Duane Rutter & Sean Pinchin- Wednesday, October 30, 2019

*** DUO EVENT ***

 

Sean Pinchin: 

JUNO Nominated (2017) Sean Pinchin is what I like to call one of those raw, stripped down, 'real deal' players, who even records lots of his tracks, fully 'off the floor'. His lyrics are about his own, personal struggles, and journey, and he's one helluva picker.

He intends to do a fully acoustic show, on steel guitar with a suitcase bass drum.
He's received lots of recognition, and praise, for his CD recordings, and his most recent release, 'Monkey Brain', was recorded with Juno Award Winning Producer, Rob Szabo. Sean received a JUNO Nomination for this release.

His style of music is 'old school', American Roots, and Blues, and his 'off the floor' style, will make him right at home, performing, at Mississippi Queen Foods, for Southern Supper.

Maple Blues Award Nominated for 'Best New Artist'.

Duane Rutter:

Duane Rutter,born in Simcoe Ontario,has been writing songs and performing for over 35 years and is often described as “a songwriters songwriter” as his attention to detail in his work has often been compared to such highly respected songwriters as Guy Clark and Joe Ely. He has three critically acclaimed albums to date with the latest (2016 Hamilton Music Awards Roots Recording of the Year nominated) "Crazy Things" featuring some of Canada's finest musicians including Rock and Roll, Juno and NYC Blues Hall of Famer Garth Hudson of The Band!

The Duane Rutter band has been packing clubs and concert halls everywhere and was nominated for the 2016 Hamilton Music Awards People's Choice Band of the Year (he and his band was in the top 5 of the 2015 Hamilton Spectator Band of the Year and received the bronze award for the same in 2016)

Duane was nominated for Songwriter and Male Vocalist of the Year and his latest CD "Crazy Things" was nominated for Roots Recording of the year at the 2016 HMA’s as well!

With time spent in LA, successful regular appearances at legendary venues such as Nashville's world famous songwriter mecca The Bluebird Cafe, The Blue Plate Special In Knoxville TN and Gruene Hall in Texas as well as glowing critical reviews and airplay worldwide, Rutter continues to lay the groundwork for greater and more far reaching success in North America and beyond.

Our special menu includes...
Chicken & Sausage Gumbo served with white rice; Crawfish Pie; Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing; Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie; Sweet Iced Tea; & Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory.
