Monday Is Never Manic With Blues Mania at The Brown Pelican

The Brown Pelican is the popular watering hole that is known for hosting live music five nights a week. Kicking things off with a blues fix is Big Jim Kohler Band who each Monday offers music jams from 7-9:30 PM each week. This popular night brings out many blues admirers and players too. All are welcome to come out and be a part of the fun. The band offers a fun set of Chicago style blues before asking guests to share the stage for more jams that lean into the blues.

Mid Week Blues Break Brings New Faces and Many Bassists

Following a night off, Big Jim and the Band get back to work sharing more jams with more jammers in town. Most Wednesdays, the band can be found on stage at City Stage, sharing the blues and cutting the grooves with special guests.

This past week we saw some new faces and two new bassists who stepped up to jam with the band. First, we met Chiles, a new face on the stage, who shared a few songs before tuning over the bass detail to David Rappaport. Rappaport is the bassist for the new line up of Due East who will be making their debut at The Brown Pelican in a few weeks. Look for them in mid-October. 

Along with a couple of new bass players, we featured two harmonicas at one point in the program. Blowing the notes were Gordon Graham and David Sawyer.

The mid-week blues jam offers two hours of blistering blues and rocking grooves that bring fans to Chicago and back in two hours time. The BJKBB will be there each week until September 11, when the DownEast Folk Art Society brings a show to town. More on that as we grow closer to the event.

Thursday Yields More Blues From the Road as We Head to The House for Woolly’s Big Blues Jam

Woolly & The Wingnutz are the house band at The House in Durham where each Thursday, players gather to join the jams. This week Woolly requested that Big Jim come early and play with the Wingnutz. This weekly jam welcomes many players from the Triangle region and always offers a bouquet of talent. Many of these players are friends we met along the way in our travels to The Blue Note Grill. 

Speaking of the blues supper club, they will be hosting their annual blues competition, next week for The Road to Memphis. This annual competition is judged and selects one winner from each category to go to Memphis to represent The Triangle Blues Society at The International Blues Challenge at the beginning of 2020. The Big Jim Kohler Band is registered to compete. I will be on hand to stream live from the competition.

Not long after the competition, Woolly & his Wingnutz will be coming to New Bern to rock your blues away. on the deck at Persimmons Restaurant on Saturday, September 14, 2019. That show will start at 6:30 pm.

We Welcome The Weekend with More Blues and Rockin Grooves

Things got underway between Tracey Stones Productions and Persimmons Restaurant after the manager, Meghan Margarum reached out to hire Big Jim for a show. I replied that he would be available in late August and that I would love to meet about bringing more music to the beautiful venue. After a few messages and a meeting, it was agreed that we can work together in bringing talent to the waterfront restaurant that overlooks the Neuse River. 

Last night it was the debut for the Big Jim Kohler Band on the deck. Bringing their talents to make the music were Big Jim on guitar and vocals, Chris Buttitta on bass, Mike Ferrara on drums and there is vocal spotlight which shines also when Kathy Kohler grabs the mic to belt her blues. They set up outside on the deck for the first set, but as the storm set in during the break, we broke down and moved the party upstairs and inside. Tonight you can find the boys rocking their blues at Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Wilmington NC. Music starts at 8 PM. Next week they will be back on the Bear City clock and doing what they do about town. Be sure to be a part of the fun soon. We love seeing you.

Closing Out My Week Of Blues with Good Rock

I closed out the week with the rocking fun grooves of Stairwell. This Greenville-based band has been creating sounds for 13 years and have two original discs available for purchase. They also travel with lots of merchandise, from t-shirts to jewelry, hats, stickers and more. The band plays a variety of cover songs that run the gamut from pop to rock. Of all the songs they offer, it is the original works that truly impress me. Here is a sample of what I mean.

 

The band keeps their events up to date on Facebook so if you wish to keep in the know, be sure to check them out on Facebook by following this link: Stairwell. Their next show will bring them to Da Bayou Wilson next Friday night with music being offered at 10 PM. Next Saturday the band returns to their home base to rock Tiebreakers Sports Bar and Grill, Greenville, with music again starting at 10 PM.

The Blue Note Grill

The Blue Note Grill

Groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking Gulf Coast blues courtesy of the incredible Marcia Ball. 

Marcia Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world.

With SHINE BRIGHT (available April 20th), Ball set out to, in her words, “Make the best Marcia Ball record I could make.” In doing so, she has put together the most musically substantial, hopeful and uplifting set of songs of her five-decade career. Produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and recorded in Texas and Louisiana, Shine Bright contains twelve songs (including nine originals), ranging from the title track’s rousing appeal for public and private acts of courage to the upbeat call to action of Pots And Pans, a song inspired by renowned Texas political writer and humorist Molly Ivins. From the humorous advice of Life Of The Party to the poignantly optimistic World Full Of Love, the intensity of Ball’s conviction never wavers while, simultaneously, the fun never stops. Shine Bright is exactly the album Ball set out to make.

Capping off the Weekend And Walking Through the Week

On The Scene With Tracey Stones   ℘℘℘℘℘

Sunday Afternoon In The Park Brings The Blues

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    The Carolina Swamp Dogs came to Fairfield Harbour last weekend, to perform as part of the concert series which I host for the neighborhood. Tracey Stones Productions, LLC presents this concert series, which takes place every other weekend throughout the warmer weather seasons at Red Sail Park. The duo came from the Jacksonville area and offered two long sets of sizzling hot blues for the crowd that gathered.

I met this band as a trio three years ago at the NC Seafood Festival in Morehead City. They wowed me with their take on the blues. Offering an educational experience with listeners. They teach about the masters that created the first musical offerings from our American culture. The blues have a deep-rooted history in being America’s music offering to the world. It’s originators live on through those shared musical traditions which they offered the world, as new players carry the torch in keeping the blues alive. One of the things I appreciate most about this band, whether they come as a duo or a trio, the education comes with them. The lead singer, percussionist and harmonica Gary Oles tells tales about the players that carved the history of this music genre. Band-mate Tommy Langlois plays the guitar while keeping the beats with his feet. Offering some vocals, the duo offers a fun show of great music.

For those around town that missed the show, good news, The Carolina Swampdogs will be returning to town tonight to perform on the deck at Persimmons. Music will play from 6:30-9:30 pm, as you dine under the sails if the weather is right, upstairs if it is not so nice.  Next weekend they will return to town to play The Brown Pelican. The duo will offer music from 8-11 pm on Saturday, August 24, 2019.

For those interested in knowing, my next show in Fairfield Harbour will offer the music of Hank Barbee and The Dusty Trio. It was recently made public that Hank Barbee’s wife, Holly Barbee’s father Greg Davis is very sick. Recently diagnosed with a brain tumor, he also lost his job. These have been rough days for the family and in an effort to make things easier, we will be collecting donations for the singer’s father-in-law. Please come out for a fun afternoon of great music and help this artist help his family. Showtime is Sunday, August 25, 2019, at 3 PM. For those that cannot attend the show but would like to help this family in need, please consider visiting and donating to the GO FUND ME set up by his family.

Sunday Evening Jazz and Special Guests Conclude The Weekend Music Offerings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Following my concert in Fairfield Harbour, I packed up my banners and headed to town to catch some Jazz courtesy of John Van  Dyke and friends. They offer two shows each month out on the deck at Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant. I am glad I did not delay, as it was my sweet friends Kathy Kohler who was standing with the band when I arrived. She wowed the crowd like she always does by offering two songs. She was not the only diva to join Van Dyke on the mic. He also shared a song with June Bonner later in the show. These jazz offerings are served from 5:30-7:30 each Sunday afternoon. Welcome the evening with wonderful sounds under the sails as the moon rises over the Neuse River. Van Dyke is a resident performer, offering a jazz show on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. The first Sunday of the month offers the sultry sounds of Alisa Mike and this week come out for the Jazz sounds of Andrea Owens.

More Blues To Welcome The Week

 

Nothing gets the week started right better than a good dose of the blues. Blues Night at The Brown Pelican with host Big Jim Kohler is still a thing and people are flocking to it! Last week was a little more special than most, as Big Jim was joined by his bride midway through the show. Kathy Kohler rarely joins the Monday night party as she rather enjoys the night off. But last week with so many of her friends in the house, it only made sense to summons her to the stage. After a quick shower, the powerhouse singer graced us with her presence and offered a handful of amazing song selections. Included in her set was “People Get Ready,” as well as a slaying version of  B.B. King’s “The Thrill IS Gone.”

Big Jim stays busy bluesin’ throughout the week around town and then brings his show around the region on weekends. You can join the fun jams any Monday at The Brown Pelican or most Wednesdays at City Stage. The jams run from 7-9 pm at both venues and all are welcome to come out and join in the fun. Coming up this Friday, August 23, you can catch the band on the deck at Persimmons Restaurant sharing sounds with diners from 6:30-9:30 PM.

NCMZ.LIVE is happy to announce our new calendar feature. We now offer three calendars for music lovers to check out for live music events. With a growing commitment to building this site to be a daily vehicle for music lovers to check out, I have added the new calendars pages and widgets. These pages and calendar widgets are broken down by area, New Bern, The Crystal Coast and Around the Region.

With A Calendar Function Giving This Site A Daily Boost Offers GOOD News For Readers and Advertisers

This offers readers a resourceful tool to finding music in their area, all around the state, every day of the week. I am committing myself to the new routine of finding new gigs to list and add to the calendars daily. Committed to adding a minimum of ten a day that means adding 70 gigs a week to these calendars.

Bands and venues are welcome to invite me to their events on Facebook or via email at ncmz.live@gmail.com. There is no cost to be listed on occasion, but please understand just like free music is not free, this free promotional service is not free either. It costs me a great amount of time. 

If you are a busy band or a thriving music venue, I want you! We can create a calendar for you and keep you in the zone! $250 a year and you can have all your events added to a personal calendar widget right here in the music zone. Advertisers will be responsible for providing the event’s content. 

Beside offering calendar options, NCMZ.LIVE also can create an active link for your website, or social media pages. Which also offers some live coverage for your live music events. For five years we have been building this site together and thanks to your suggestions and my commitment it keeps getting better. THANK YOU!

I will still bring you live coverage of the music scene around us in the random fashion we have become accustomed to in these five years of reporting. Without your support since September, none of this would be possible. So a big shout out and thank you to everyone who has extended a hand, offered a tip, bought me a meal or a beer. I love you all for the love you have shared with me! And every time I think I have to quit, you really have stepped up to help me keep the beats! Together we are building an awesome product that we can be proud of as we share it with our friends.

Kicking it at the Close of 2018

On the Scene With Tracey Stones

Happy New Year. I am glad we made it through 2018 and look forward to tackling 2019 as a team as well! Hopefully, everyone had a safe and joyous New Year!

To be honest, most years I think to myself, “Oh New Year, new start,” and not much ever changes. This year I never thought much about it and here it is the most revolutionary of all the New Years, since I started reporting on music around the state.

From this perspective, 2018 was one of serious personal growth and not much prosperity. To be honest, I have been in limbo for the last six month. I had a bit of a personal storm blow through my life and it resulted in upsetting many things, long before Florence was a thing to talk about. So with it all being said and done…good riddens!

2019 starts with big news and big changes in the life of two bloggers. With accepting the Marketing Director and Ad Sales Executive position for NC Life Media, I look forward to meeting lots of people as we help them promote their business in the community and beyond.

The most exciting part of this position is the ability to offer our advertisers so many platforms to help them grow. We are ready to offer three stages for business development. We can offer our advertisers affordable radio, print and online exposure.

If you have a business and look for new ways to get the word out to people about your products, please, contact me today 318-789-6929 and we can build an effective and affordable marketing plan for the year ahead!

Blogger Returns to the Beat

,After 11 days with fever and 13 days of rest, on Saturday, December 29, 2018, I made my way back to the scene, just in time for the year-end wrap up around town.

I started things off with stopping by to visit my friends at BrUtopia, where I enjoyed the sounds of the sweet Sabra Mason. I met this talented soul at an open mic night in Newport a couple of months ago and have enjoyed hearing her several times since.

Our mutual friend Tiffany Elaine introduces her as the Reba McIntyre of our region. Offering a great variety of pop and country songs, she can go gospel and sing the blues too. Besides covering popular songs, the artist is a songwriter in her own right. To learn more visit her page on Facebook.

Bad Decisions Band Rocked the Deck at Blackbeard’s

Blackbeard’s Triple Play offered a new band for the crowd to welcome, the last Saturday of 2018! On the deck and making ’em dance was the Bad Decisions Band from the Smithfield area.

The fun party band boasts two lead singers and offers a variety of popular songs for the audience. With most of the focus on Southern rock and country selections, they had the crowd boot scooting before finishing their first set. They kept the good times rolling, until they wrapped up their debut on S Front St.

Without much notice and word came the news that Bryan Mayer would perform the last Saturday of the year in town at The Brown Pelican. Joining the singer and stringer with bongo beats and backing vocals was Mayer’s longtime friend Critty Robinson.

New Bern Had Something for Everyone on NYE

The City’s first-ever “Bear Drop” took place at midnight on Monday night/Tuesday Morning in front of the City Hall to ring in the New Year. This amazing event was made possible thanks to Toyota of New Bern and the hard-working people at City of New Bern Parks and Recreation Department. Together they organized the City’s first ever NYE Block Party.

A lot of spontaneous and last minute hard work brought our city the best ever NYE celebration in the town’s recent history. The night-long event opened to the public at 5 pm and offered food and drink vendors, a big stage featuring two live music acts and a bear drop from the corner of the clock tower at the top of City Hall.

Sitting in the studio for the New Bern and Beyond Podcast, which will air Monday when the topic came up, I asked Colleen Roberts if they did many rehearsals for the timed drop and she assured me they did. Be sure to tune in to hear about other behind the scenes fun facts.

On the stage and providing the entertainment for the evening was Adam Pitts, a talented solo act the offers a full band sound with a few mixers and settings on the pedals. The Raleigh based singer welcomed the crowd to the stage, on Pollock St. just after 6 pm. The free event was well received by the citizens and many visitors in attendance.

On stage and rocking the party beats from 9 pm until the midnight countdown we enjoyed Love Tribe, another Raleigh based band that offered a fun and diverse set of music to keep the crowd excited.

Just before the stroke of midnight, Mayor Dana Outlaw came to the stage and thanked the crowd, as we all counted down the final seconds together.

Besides the big block party in town, I bounced about and found lots of other parties taking place in all corners of New Bern.


℘℘℘℘

At The City Stage

The City Stage offered Drag to Riches. This entertaining night featured Madame Z and her Divas, who provide comedy song and dance as they engage the crowd.


℘℘℘℘

The Bears Played the Elks Club

I found New Bern’s favorite oldies band, The Bears rocking with the youngsters that gathered for a fun night of dinner and dance at the Elks Lodge.


The crowd enjoyed the music and the Bears enjoyed their audience. Giving away prizes and engaging their friends, everyone enjoyed the night at the Elks Lodge.

3 Day Weekend Rocks Monette J G Grocery ~ A NYE Tradition


For as long as they have been doing it, local rockers 3 Day Weekend have played New Year’s Eve at Monette’s J G Grocery. This tradition started when they formed 14 years ago. This fun time is an affordable $10 and offers and community setting complete with food for all and beverages sold on site.

The New Bern based rockers always fill the dance floor, just like they always close out New Year’s Eve on Free Bird, a classic southern rock anthem by Lynyrd Skynyrd.


℘℘℘℘

Peace Soldier At The Brown Pelican

Speaking of classic rock, Peace Soldier was offering the classic rock grooves at The Brown Pelican. No photos were taken as the band was rocking the crowd in the dark.

I wish every band that sets up at the Brown Pelican would take note of the brown cord beneath the wall outlet. Don’t be shy, plug that cord in so that the lights can shine on you and people can see your faces! Dan Jam Phillips helped rig those lights three years ago and they are very useful. Please use them if you play there!

Turning the spotlight back on classic rockers Peace Soldier, they will be part of a fun event that will raise money for those effected by Hurricane Florence.

Interestingly enough, each of the band’s on this bill can tell you of their significant losses and share their story of the flood that tried to defeat us. Headliners, Strung Together are the family band that lost their home on E Front Street to the named storm. They are excited to be moving back into the dwelling to continue renovations later this month.

Lead singer and founding member of Peace Soldier, Robert Hurff, was rescued from his dwelling as the water entered his living space. Two of the players in The Hot Buttered Grits saw the river rush through their homes as well. And opening the show tomorrow at the Turnage Theater is The Neuse River Ramblers, a band featuring banjo player Danny Batten, who suffered severe damage to his store Surf Wind & Fire, located on Middle St in Downtown New Bern.

All will gather on one ticket for the 6th Annual Guitar Fest, a free show for any who wish to attend. Please consider bringing a considerable donation, as this is a fundraising event and this year the money raised will be filtered back into New Bern for Hurricane Relief. Your help is still very much much needed!

Music starts at 4 pm! Hope to see you there.

Irresistible Groove & Masquerade at Blackbeard’s Triple Play & The Farmer’s Market

Blackbeard’s Triple Play hosted a fun night featuring a masquerade party. Given this fun option, many towns people showed up to town with their masks

The band hired for the night played on stage a the Farmers Market. Irresistible Groove offered a fun music experience for the masked dancers that gathered for the good times. The Triangle-based party band made it irresistible for people to groove, hence the fitting name.


When not rocking the grooves with this band, a few of the members gather to offer Groove5band. I recommend you look for and like both band pages on Facebook.
