Curtis J - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Curtis J
Curtis J is an American musician, songwriter, and social activist. He initially garnered acclaim as the fiery guitarist in the band Kentucky Knife Fight before migrating to New York City to form his own group. After multiple successful US and European tours with the likes of Murder by Death, Old 97's, and Rev. Horton Heat, he wasted no time in finding his singular style and voice. With allusions to David Bowie, Harry Nilsson, and St. Vincent, Curtis J is a student of songwriters poised to become an instructor.
Eleven Magazine says his "virtuosity on guitar has given the MidWest scene a lot to work with and his departure for the East Coast has left a large hole for some other hotshot(s) to fill." More Joni than Springsteen, more Jeff Buckley than Cobain, Curtis J mixes the genuine emotionality of deep groove songwriting with enough rock and roll bravado throughout to keep you guessing on what he's been listening to.
Mike Bennett & the SoulGlo Orchestra - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Mike Bennett & the SoulGlo Orchestra
Mike Bennett & The SoulGlo Orchestra are power-funk for the people. Based in Brooklyn, their music can be described as hard-hitting funk meets soulful grooves. Influences range from Stevie Wonder, the Foo Fighters, and Bruno Mars. They released their self-titled EP SoulGlo in January 2017.
