Hump Day Jam with Jack Yoder hosting

Ziggies Live Music, 4923 West 38th Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80212

 

Hump Day Hump Day with Jack Yoder. In February this will alternate weeks with Randall Dubis and Jack. Every Wednesday, come down to Ziggies for an open jam. Play all styles, all levels, and we have a full backline for you to use. Blues, Zydeco, Jazz, Rock, Funk, Groove, anything YOU want. Jam starts around 8:30 or immediately following performance poetry on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month. Buck draft PBR $5 Beer and shot specials. No Cover Free Parking. Loads of fun, fun, fun

About Jack: Colorado's award winning blues artist Jack Yoder (who’s solo show won Best Solo/Duo Act, Colorado Blues Society, 2012) with his three piece combo called Jack Yoder & The 2 Piece Suit just released their CD “Songs We Don’t Know” (Best Self-Produced Blues CD, Colorado Blues Society, 2012 - Available on itunes & amazon as well as at jackyoder.com).

Here's what 40wattgigolo.com had to say about him...

“2012 has been a great year for Jack Yoder, marked by the release of the self-produced Songs We Don't Know and for winning the Colorado Blues Society competition for best solo blues artist of 2012. Both the record and Jack will be competing at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee next month. Nice way to kick of 2013.

Jack Yoder has an encyclopedic knowledge of tone. Mention a song and he can dial up the tone and play you the tune. Doesn't matter if its Hubert Sumlin or Bob Mould, shut your eyes and that's the sound. It is a gift. Mixed with his own musicianship and songwriting skills, it produces jaw-dropping results.

Benzedrine is a song I really dig off of this record. Expertly written, Jack gives us a throwback vibe that would sound great on any of the recent Bob Dylan albums. Listen to the guitar tone with its clarity and tinge of reverb and you are transported back to any 1940's blues joint. Meanwhile, the upright bass and drums lay down a fine groove and beat that any guitarist would love to play over.

Then there are the lyrics. Is he singing about drugs or women? Is there really any difference? It starts with the first verse:

Up all night, can't sleep at all Tired of staring at these same four walls For you I burn, burn, burn for you

Jack Yoder represents a door that connects the past and future of the blues. He has the ability to make the old new that I usually equate with R.L. Burnside. Check Jack Yoder out. He is the real deal.” -Ed Behan, 40wattgigolo.com

Jack Yoder – Guitar, Dobro, Vocals, Harp, Fearless leader

Jack once asked his childhood friend Brian Gibson (really - no joke) to teach him to play Judas Priest on his brother’s guitar back in the 80’s. Brian agreed but also required him to learn a few B.B. King and Robert Johnson tunes as “payment”. The rest just wrote itself. Jack fell in love at first twang of the blues back then and has played and performed for over 20 years in numerous bands spanning the map from Atlanta to San Francisco to New Orleans. The last of which quickly became his spiritual home where he considers himself as having “walked in a guitarist and walked out a musician”. It was in The Crescent City that he began seriously crafting his own voice and performed regularly as a solo act. The majority of music Jack has composed over the years is unmistakably drawn from the earthy soul and ethereal state of mind that true New Orleans purists immediately nod to.

Brian Parton Solo - $3

Ziggies Live Music, 4923 West 38th Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80212

 

He’s the Rebel Troubadour of fast whiskey and hard women. His songs reflect his passion for a life of exotic danger and bad love gone beguiling, with a twist of ironical jubilation.

From a destination he prefers to identify simply as “unknown,” on a journey to “no forwarding address,” he makes you sit back, inhale the moment and leave destiny to its own whim.

Brian Parton is part James Dean, part Woody Guthrie, a touch of Kurt Cobain and a dash of Billy the Kid.

As he scowls-out his lyrics you feel the tortured yet amused soul of the Dark Ruler of Rockabilly rubbing against untouched regions of your soul’s innards as he spins love ballads like never expressed before.

He is danger’s lonely friend. Capable of telling stories of love that leave you feeling more like you snorted the lyrics off the bar instead of standard audible ingestion.

Best taken with a shot of whiskey or a gulp of ‘shine, Parton’s music says those things you have felt but lacked the ability to express. Go ahead, use his lyrics as your own, if you dare to drive into the night on life’s back road. Just know you must now share the load of the Balladeer of Bad.

ACCOLADES 2014 nominee "Singer/Songwriter of the Year", Colorado Springs Independent 2013 nominee for "Singer/Songwriter of the Year", Colorado Springs Independent 2005 winner "Best Americana Act", Tulsa World 2004 winner "Best Americana Act", Tulsa World 2006-07 nominee for "Best Americana Act", Tulsa World 1999-2003 nominee for "Best Rock Band", Tulsa World

About Danny Haynes: Danny brings 40 plus year of experience to the stage. Born near Dallas, Texas, he was part of the vibrant music scene that produced the Vaughan brothers-Stevie and Jimmie. Danny's band was The Beefeaters and Jimmie's was The Chessmen. They competed for many gigs in those days. Danny became a full-time musician in the early 70's toured the US and Canada with Tommy Latham and McCool, a Vegas-type show band that allowed him to become a seasoned stage performer. In 1976, he started The King Peach Band, a hard working road band that recorded their only album in 1980. That same band recorded the critically-acclaimed "Texas Boogie Blues" album with Ray Sharpe of "Linda Lu" fame. Soon after, Dan settled into a long residency with The Silver City Band in the DFW area that lasted 12 years. He made a giant leap of faith and moved to Australia in 1996 where he found a vibrant music scene and recorded his CD “Built For Comfort” in Alice Springs, Australia teamed with local musicians. Since relocating back to the US and Denver, he has worked with many local favorites including Erik Boa, Randall Dubis(with whom he reached the 2013 Finals of the Denver IBC), Alan Knight, The Encounters and more. He recorded the keys on Bad Brad And The Fat Cats debut album and added keys to two songs on Dan Treanor and Afrosippi's current release. He was recently nominated in the keys category for Members Choice Awards at www.coblues.com. Dan is also preparing his own band, The Working Dawgs, for more appearances.

ON TOUR - Quinn DeVeaux Solo (Bay Area)

Ziggies Live Music, 4923 West 38th Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80212

 

The modern soul songs of Quinn Deveaux, sung in his sweet tenor over a spare guitar or carried by his band’s bright tones, evoke old images aplenty—from those gutbucket barrooms where rock-n-roll was born, to the pine-walled shacks, nearby, where its gospel-forebears rent their souls. But this artist’s singular sound, making old tones new, is Quinn’s alone. His acclaimed Blue Beat Review has been thrilling San Francisco’s lovers of rollicking early R&B, and a good time, for years. And now, with two LPs of his own fresh tunes set to drop this fall, the Bay Area’s best-kept secret is stepping out. Get on board: he’ll take you there, wherever you’ve got to go.

BIO Quinn DeVeaux has packed houses and astounded audiences in the bay area for years with his smooth and dirty spank you voice and cool melodic songwriting. First he started an early Chicago Blues band and then a New Orleans soul and gospel band. Both groups had audiences clamoring for more. Now he has combined it all in the Blue Beat Review a self-styled crossroads of his many musical roots. Quinn harnesses the likes of Ray Charles, John Hurt, Fats Domino and Bo Diddley. His songwriting is the classic influence made fresh. With all the style and subtlety of the great soul/blues singers of the earth bound golden days, his band keeps audiences in a state of joy.
