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

 

Halloween continues! November 1, 2014 with the John Weeks Band featuring Michele Steele on vocals. This girl can sing! Get in here for the costume contest and win fabulous prizes! Doors 6pm. Music 9pm to 1am. $5 for the band. No additional fee to enter the contest. Costumes not required, but they sure are fun! The contest is generally during the last band break.

An energetic, fun blues-based band fronted by John Weeks, Andras Csapo (AC) and Michele Steele. Play it like you mean it!

The John Weeks Band is an eclectic and fluid mix of musicians who bring serious energy, boundless enthusiasm, killer chops, a groove to die for and big time fun to every show they do. It’s blues and it moves!

Take the blues, ship it to Europe, mix it up, shake it around, add killer groove and you get the sound and flavor of the John Weeks Band. The music is based on classic blues lines, but they take it in a slightly different direction. -John was born in France and got a lot of his chops playing the bars and clubs of Paris in the 1990's -AC is Hungarian and is a blues classicist from day one. Check out the Hammond B3 as well as the killer harp playing and you'll get the picture. -Michele is from the Boston area and belts out the blues like there is no tomorrow. -MacMcMurray is Irish and has a forward driving groove that is 2nd to none. -Chooch is from Detroit and plays drums. Need we say more? Put that all together and you get some very interesting stuff indeed!

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.

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.
