Miss Massive Snowflake @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Miss Massive Snowflake

Wednesday, July 27th – 2016 at 7:30pm at legendary TAFFYs

 

Like A Book adds to Miss Massive Snowflake’s expanding library of curious and clever progressive pop songs. The charismatic and playful band experiment with orchestral jazz, candy pop, and free-spirited psychedelic rock to create a unique musical vernacular. Miss Massive Snowflake marry traditional familiarities and edgy concepts with catchy energetic rock, and craft deceptively intricate songs. Like a Book blends angled radio hits, a jazz sensibility, and boy band punk.

With an emotive voice, compelling lyrics, and sounding at times like a west coast Talking Heads, a Bowie, or a Hendrix, Shane de Leon sings short story song blasts over an adventurous mix, a sort of Flaming Lips / Minutemen mash up. There is an inspiring fire that burns through Like a Book’s 10 tracks and 33 minutes. The drums and bass drive while horns punch into screwed groove guitar riffs producing beautiful, moving, and intellectually satisfying rock music.

The Alkis

Seattle acoustic duo, The Alkis, have delivered their sound from the cobblestone streets of Pike Place Market to the rest of the West Coast; they show no signs of stopping. After meeting in high school, singer/guitarist Carly Calbero and drummer Nika Wascher, soon began to experiment and develop their sound together. Right after graduation, Calbero, headed straight for Seattle to test her skills at the famous Pike Place Market.

Over the course of five years, she was named the best busker in Seattle by Seattle Metropolitan and Seattle Weekly in addition to a top 4 finish in Rolling Stone Magazine’s nationwide search for the best busker. With Nika occasionally joining Carly to entertain locals and tourists alike, it was clear that the next step in their journey would have to be made together.

In 2014 they took the leap and released, “Bright Eyed Kids EP.” With their original songs as well as covers (spanning multiple genres), they started playing shows further and further from home – never losing the raw, uninhibited sound Seattle had given them. As of now, they’ve toured the West Coast a few times, playing shows in five different states.

Jason D. Thompson @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Jason D. Thompson

“Now That’s A Whole Big Pile Of Sin”

It’s hard to forget Thompson’s voice, a mix of guttural and commanding sincerity. Fiery, warm, pained, powerful, gritty and embracing.”  Brian Tucker – StarNews

 

With the voice of a possessed preacher, and a beat up old guitar, Jason is known to captivate audiences with his unique blend of Punk & Country Blues. He is a true storyteller and songwriter carrying on a family tradition passed down to him during his childhood, growing up in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

Jason has been content throughout his life to travel the world playing his music. But in 2015, after returning home from Europe, he decided to self-record and release his first E.P. Out of Pocket. The album gained quick recognition being featured on both the Kroterz Get Rhythm show on Radio Lux, and the Sunday Morning Hangover show on Road Dogs Radio, all before being touted as one of the top 15 local releases of 2015 by StarNews in Wilmington, NC.

In 2016 Jason will be making his U.K. debut performance at The Dark Holler Festival, and that same weekend at Hen Fest in southern England, before heading to Iceland for the first time as well. Stateside, Jason will be performing around North Carolina and at the Carolina Pines Music Festival this spring before heading back to Northern Europe in the fall.

Michael Kelsey – Buy tickets here @ Taffys of Eaton
Aug 20 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Michael Kelsey - Buy tickets here @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Michael Kelsey

August 20th at TAFFYs

MICHAEL KELSEY is a rhythmic, inspired guitarist and performance artist who blends many musical genres with fervour and grace. When he hits the stage to perform, he plays every inch of his guitar pulling out every part of it or anything else an arm’s length or foot kick away. Through out a performance Michael may make use of technology, his improv skills, objects in the room, and audience interaction to make music for the ears but more importantly a musical experience for the senses.

Born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana, he began his musical journey weaving in and out of successful area bands as lead guitarist or bassist. Later he opened and ran a thriving recording studio, which after five years he retired in order to enable him to embark freely on his career as a solo artist.

His naturally soulful vocal illuminates carefully chosen lyrics that make his songs shimmer and shine. He plays expressively and manipulates the guitar to create a melodic fusion of alternate tunings and unorthodox hand positions allowing for him to achieve a full sound. The true beauty is in the way the song, the sound and the motion of his music unites. The songs, especially the lush instrumentals, can be reminiscent of the late, great Michael Hedges, but boast Kelsey’s personal percussive stamp, exceptional arrangement and deliberate instrumentation.

His live performances are particularly moving. Sometimes he sounds as if he’s deftly playing more than one guitar. At a Kelsey show audience members may actually lose themselves in the moment and forget they are listening to one person. They can be tapping their foot one minute, in a deep trance the next, then bursting into laughter.

Scroll down to purchase your tickets . . .

“There is a five piece band in my head. They all have different tastes in music and they are all trying to escape at the same time through my hands, feet and mouth. I hang onto an acoustic guitar and see what happens,” Kelsey sums up his stage show aptly. He is well versed in the art of entertaining and at every show he creates a rare army of sound that comes from one man, a voice and an acoustic guitar.

Whether he’s creating a song spontaneously for a lucky lady in the front row, telling a story complete with sound effects, or letting an inspired moment move his fingers around the fret board, Kelsey never performs the same show twice.

After performing an opening set for folk artist David Wilcox, David described Kelsey’s show as “Cirque Du Soleil on acoustic guitar.”

Kelsey’s abilities have enabled him to be noticed by many. A finalist in Guitar Player Magazine’s national competition and winner of Guitar Center’s “Guitarmageddon,” chosen as best unsigned guitarist out of over 3000 entrants nationwide says it all. This allowed him to be apart of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads 2004 performance where he shared the stage with many of the guitar legends such as Santana, Steve Vai, Eric Clapton. He has toured nationally with Blind Melon and Dishwalla and has opened shows for many artist of many styles including The Doobie Brothers, 38 Special, Rodrigo and Gabriella and the California Guitar Trio.

Quotes
“Michael uses an arsenal of electronics, his Taylor 615,
and his voice to create layers of sonic adventures
that challenge the limits of acoustic guitar music.”
-Taylor Guitars

“A fearless experimenter, Kelsey is an acoustic guitarist
who weaves a multitude of unusual sounds and rhythms into
his patchwork quilt of work. Part performance artist and part
virtuoso musician. Kelsey takes the widest possible variety
of music and makes it his own.”
-Nuvo Magazine,Indianapolis, IN

“After sets by Neal Schon and Steve Vai Michael Kelsey takes the stage.
His combination of percussive, Michael Hedges-like playing and
Junior Brown-style de-and re-tuning shows that he is indeed a viable
“Guitarzilla.”
-MATT WEITZ – The Dallas Morning News

A crowd estimated at over 15,000 listened intensely as Indianapolis, Indiana’s Michael Kelsey played the winning performance on his Taylor 615 acoustic guitar. Kelsey received a thunderous standing ovation, despite the 91-degree temperature.
-Mix Magazine

“…Galloping guitar work with significant crossover appeal.”
-Dirty Linen Magazine

“To call the structure in his hands a guitar completely misses the point.”
-Fred Kraus, The Dayton Daily

“People are going to see more of him, this man is going to have the opportunity to communicate.”
-Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, of Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan fame.

“An astonishing performer…” – John Wesley Harding, folk artist

… like Cirque Du Soleil on acoustic guitar.” -David Wilcox, folk artist

Doug MacLeod  wsg. Bob Dellaposta

Blues Music Awards for Acoustic Artist Of The Year and Acoustic Album Of The Year Thursday night (May 8th, 2014) in Memphis.

http://bobdellaposta.com/

http://www.doug-macleod.com/index.html

Awards for Acoustic Artist Of The Year and Acoustic Album Of The Year (There’s A Time), the 2013 Blues Blast Music Award for Male Artist Of The Year, and perennial Blues Music Award nominee, is a prolific singer, songwriter, engaging storyteller, and masterful guitarist born in the blues and rooted in the American tradition.

He is a traveling artist that writes and sings original songs that are based on his own life and experiences. He learned from the old masters, lived the music, survived the life and carries forward a valuable tradition. MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances. At the heart of this is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters-from the faceless to the legendary-to strikingly real life.  As a youth he overcame abuse and a crippling stutter by turning to music. After he picked up a guitar, and tried to sing – he found his voice.

While he developed his rich, soulful singing style MacLeod also worked out a unique, unorthodox and powerfully rhythmic acoustic guitar style. The rage of his turbulent youth was eventually channeled through his guitar, using his relentless right hand to pound out an insistent, churning beat to complement his intricate bottleneck and finger-style technique. MacLeod’s playing landed him sideman gigs with George ‘Harmonica’ Smith, Big Joe Turner, Pee Wee Crayton, Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson, Lowell Fulson and Big Mama Thornton. Under their tutelage, he learned how to thrill and enrapture a crowd. Over 29 years, 19 studio albums, several live records, compilations, a blues guitar instructional DVD and a live performance DVD, MacLeod has consistently earned raves. His songs have been covered by many artists including Albert King, Albert Collins, Joe Louis Walker and Eva Cassidy. He has co-written songs with Dave Alvin and Coco Montoya.MacLeod’s songs have been featured in many TV movies and the hit show In the Heat of the Night. Two of his songs are on Grammy nominated albums by Albert King and Albert Collins.

From 1999 to 2004 he hosted Nothin’ But The Blues, a very popular weekend blues show on Los Angeles’ KLON-KKJZ. He has also been the voice for The Blues Showcase on Continental Airlines and contributed his soulful slide guitar playing to the Los Angeles opening of the August Wilson play “Gem of the Ocean”. For ten years he penned “Doug’s Back Porch,” a regular feature column in Blues Revue Magazine in which he shared his humorous and insightful stories with thousands of readers. He won the Golden Note Award in 1997 for his AudioQuest album “You Can’t Take My Blues”. In 2006 Solid Air/Warner Bros. released Doug’s guitar instructional DVD “101* Blues Guitar Essentials”.

MacLeod signed with Reference Recordings in 2012. His new album “Exactly Like This“  will be released on March 10, 2015. In every note he performs and records, MacLeod subscribes to the rule-of-thumb learned from country bluesman Ernest Banks from Toano VA. who instilled in him to “Never play a note you don’t believe”, and “Never write or sing about what you don’t know about.”

 

Like the old masters who taught him, MacLeod’s music expresses life and times via an intangible, elusive quality that may simply be a keen sense of what matters most. There is a philosophic and healing side to MacLeod’s music and his stories that has helped others overcome the hardships of their lives.

 

As Pee Wee Crayton’s widow Esther once told Doug, “You have a message and you’ll send that message mainly to the people who don’t go to church.” Amen

Mitchell Louis

Saturday. Sept. 3rd- 8pm

I am a country artist signed with Mid South Records. I am twenty-one years old and currently attend Ohio University. After my graduation in December I am planning on making the move to Nashville to further pursue my music career. I began playing out and writing music just over a year ago. I have written around two hundred original songs since then and love to perform. I am very high energy with influences such as Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brad Paisley, and the Eagles. Last year I was selected as a finalist for Bridging the Music’s Solo Artist of the Year awards and was fortunate enough to also play at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio. I have played other small shows all around the state of Ohio and in Nashville. My true passion lies in songwriting, and I hope to one day become fortunate enough to make it my career. I regularly post videos to YouTube and keep my fans up to date on Twitter. Check out my music and give me a follow!

Jon Brooks

“(Brooks) speaks and sings words that need to be spoken and sung and he does it beautifully, perfectly, and with absolute finesse.” – Rod Kennedy, Founder and Producer of The Kerrville Folk Festival, Kerrville, TX

“Brooks stands among an exalted few in the enduring Canadian song tradition – Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Fred Eaglesmith, Bruce Cockburn – as a lyricist, composer and performer with a fierce commitment to his craft and his vision.” – Greg Quill, The Toronto Star

“He is by turns metaphorical and metaphysical; at times he examines the small details of life, at others, he soars above human struggles seeking something higher; his gritty voice is infinitely kind and gentle. Mature, wise, and intrepid – somehow Jon Brooks sings a path to the mysterious and complex essence of the human condition.” – Julie Miller, CFLX 95,5 Sherbrooke, PQ

“Political songwriting’ is all too often assumed to be shouty simplistic protest, and all too often it is and therefore tends to be ignored…Brooks knows this and his songs are songs first and messages second…a powerful and at times brutally clear-sighted vision armed only with an acoustic guitar, a harmonica, and a gritty ragged voice…Brooks is a star in the making.” – Maverick Magazine, UK

Belle of the Fall

performing Tuesday, Sept. 20th – 7:30pm

Tracy Walton – 2014 and 2015 New England Music Award nominee Best Male Performer. An accomplished bassist and songwriter who has written for Alfred Books and taught at the National Guitar Workshop.

Julia Autumn Ford – CT Music Award Nominee Best New Artist 2014 and Song of the Year 2015. Her debut solo album has gained her well deserved attention as a singer of rare talent. “It’s almost freakish how good she sings. I watched her and it was hard to process that it was actually coming out of her mouth.” Joe Michelini, River City Extension.

The Rise of Belle of the Fall

In 2014 Tracy Walton produced Julia Autumn Ford’s debut album at his studio On Deck Sound Studio. In essence the record is somewhat the birth of Belle of the Fall, as Tracy plays all of the instruments on the record and Julia sings. Later that year they would tour the East Coast together sharing bills playing separate solo sets, with Tracy sitting in on some of Julia’s songs.

Sometimes an idea seems too simple so it takes a while for it to come to fruition. Simply put, two is often better than one. With Belle of the Fall it was as simple as an agreement of “All in.” The summer of 2015 was the right time for two forces to collide.

Sofia Talvik @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Sofia Talvik

will perform at legendary TAFFYs Wed. Oct. 2016 – 7:30pm

Growing up in Sweden her music has always had a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage, making her a favorite among music lovers, but her 16 month, and 37 state long tour, through the USA (in an RV) has moved her music closer to the Americana tradition. The adventure on the road spurred a lot of emotions, both those of triumph and joy, but also those of self doubt and defeat – all of which found their way into the songs of her 2015 album ”Big Sky Country”. 

Living like a musical nomad, moving from place to place, slowly but steadily building her audience through her heartfelt and personal performances she got to experience the USA in a way few people do. The people she met opened their homes and hearts to her and some of them even made it into her songs. But the new album is not a diary from her tour, it’s more of a storybook of emotions, new and old in which everyone can find their own place. 

Sofia’s debut album Blue Moon was released in 2005 to much critical acclaim followed by Street of Dreams in 2007 which features a duet with indie pop icon Bernard Butler from British band Suede, released on her then newly formed record label Makaki Music. Continuing a steady pace of releasing albums Sofia released her album Jonestown, named after the tragic 1978 event in Jonestown, Gyuana, 2008, and was the first Swedish female artist to play the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, that same year.

 

April 2015 Sofia’s 6th studio album “Big Sky Country” was released. A storybook of adventures and hardships, about sometimes doubting yourself but also finding strength within yourself. 10 original songs written on the road as well as in the contemplation after, beautifully packaged in a simple yet powerful production. “Big Sky Country” also contains a cover of “Starwalker” by Buffy Sainte-Marie. The album is being distributed in the USA and Canada by ILS/Caroline/Universal.

Donna Frost @ TAFFYs | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Donna Frost  Fri. Oct 14th 8pm at TAFFYs

“Even when Donna Frost picks up her acoustic guitar, the point of view is that of a brass-in-pocket rock chick. Even when her country influences show, there’s a rocker’s grit and guts in her words and attitude. As the singer of the Bunnies, one of Nashville’s first punk-rock bands, she burned a path for others to follow. “Girls Like Us,” her new CD, proves she’s still blazing a trail all her own” Michael McCall, Nashville Sce

“Like a chameleon, her smooth vocals transition from track to track. She reminds one of an early nineties Mary Chapin-Carpenter, mixed in with some Heidi Newfield, and a little soul a la Janis Ian from Seventeen. But she never falls into the trap of letting the music overtake the musician…This is one artist that I believe will be able to stay true to her indie roots no matter how mainstream her work becomes” Jenny Delamotte, Music News Nashville

“Sometimes songwriters are so busy writing a lyric that they forget to wrap it in a good tune. Not so with Donna Frost. Each lyrically sound cut is enveloped in a well-acted scene of musical imagery. A folky edge with a bluesy overtone and a country passion, this diverse disc is a musical résumé for this talented Texan”..Lucky Boyd, My Texas Music

“ …Her songs display a rocker’s attitude vocally and especially lyrically even though the songs are smooth, not ragged and punky”…Jess Marich, Shake Magazine

 

“…Donna is the real deal” – Rick Grant, “Rick at Night”

 

“Frost’s music hits you like a wry smile from a waitress that serves truckers food by day & rocks out on her Stratocaster at night”-Chicago Acoustic Underground

 

Donna Frost is a true traveling troubadour, one voice, one guitar, and many stories to share in song, based on true-life experiences. She logs thousands of miles year round performing shows in cities all across the US & has also performed in the UK & the Caribbean. She is promoting her third CD “Girls Like Us” which was released in March 2009 on SPAT! Records. Two singles from the CD, “Jacksonville” and “Runaway Train” cracked the top 15 on the indie charts in Europe in 2009. She is currently recording a rockabilly project with rockabilly legend Billy Hancock at Sun Studios in Memphis for release in 2011. Donna has been an ASCAPlus recipient for the past 7 years for her work as a performing songwriter and was a Kerrville New Folk finalist in 2004. Donna also is lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the BUNNIEs, who were part of the Nashville New Wave scene in the 1980s. The band reunited in 2007 & have played a number of shows in Nashville & Chicago. She worked with the late Skeeter Davis as her background singer from 1996-2002. Donna is an actress as well and starred as Janis Joplin in the musical “Kozmic Blue” for 3 years in Nashville. She has contributed to Marley Brant’s book, “Tales from the Rock and Roll Highway” and a new book coming soon by Rev. Keith A. Gordon called “The Other Side of Nashville.”

TAFFYs legendary OPEN MIC

Open Mic Night is an evening filled with live music provided by singers, songwriters and local musicians. Performers can sign up with the hosts to participate in the evening by performing up to 20 minutes.

It was established in 1999 and is one of the best OPEN MIC events in the area. Registration is required, because we always have a packed house.

Taffy’s is known for providing a stage for new performers who go on to play their own gigs, record CDs, etc . . . . but then we’re also known for providing a stage to lots of talented folks who never become famous, but who keep the arts alive and growing for all to enjoy.

Our Open Mic is for all styles of music performance, including poetry, comedy, and storytelling. Most of what you’ll hear is original songs on acoustic instruments, but we welcome whatever you have to offer.

As a fan of The Beatles and Bob Dylan as a teenager, Bill Price set his sights on being a songwriter. “I don’t know if it was the realization that I was always going to be just an average guitar player or the fact that I always have an opinion that got me headed in the songwriting direction. But for whatever reason, I just got that fire. I was inspired by certain music to try and do the same thing, and I still am.”

Early collaborations with his cousin Dave Price and later on with Mario Noche were also based around writing original music. “Dave was the first person I knew that actually thought about having a concept for a song. Being in my early twenties, I thought that was pretty unique.”

The collaboration with Mario Noche was also a fertile creative period. “I think we both respected each other’s songwriting ability and that inspired us to always try and bring something of quality to the table.”

In 2000 Price recorded his first album of original material, “Bones & Apples.” It received airplay in the US and Europe on college and independent radio. He also teamed up with Indiana bluesman, Gordon Bonham to form “The Brains Behind Pa” – a three, sometimes five-piece band inspired by Dylan’s songs and influences. “Gordon and I both have a love of Dylan’s music and much that inspired him, so we started a side project to kind of explore all of that music.” The result was “Old Hat,” an EP CD that contained seven traditional, folk and blues songs. It also received airplay, on college and independent radio stations across the US, in Canada and Europe.

A songwriter that is in a band inspired by Bob Dylan is bound to take the next logical step – that is, write original music for his band. “It’s an obvious extension of what we were exploring in all the old songs and Dylan’s music. It was time to apply those qualities that we like in all of that music, to our own music. Carve out our own identity.” The resulting album, “Better For The Deal,” released in May of 2006, has fifteen original songs and strongly reflects the band’s influences. It has also received airplay in the U.S. and Europe on college and independent radio.

Price released The Circus & The Gallows 3-song CD single in 2007. In late 2009 he released With the Eye of a Skeptic…, a full-length, acoustic-based CD. “It received good reviews and radio airplay overseas – mainly in Europe,” Price explains. “The reception to the Skeptic album was the most positive and extensive that any of my albums had received up to that point. It received a couple of reviews in the U.K. and airplay in Ireland which was new territory for my projects.” There were also positive reviews and airplay in Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, and Croatia to name a few others, as well as some airplay on independent and college radio in the U.S.

In 2010 Price began to expand out from his native Indiana by playing regional shows around the Midwest. 2011 saw the beginning of the recording sessions for his latest album called “I Can’t Stop Looking at the Sky.”

Price embarked on his first serious mini-tour in 2013 playing shows in the Northwest United States as recording continued through 2014 for the “I Can’t Stop Looking at the Sky” album project. The project was finalized in the spring of 2015. What had begun as a single CD, evolved into an ambitious thematic music/design/literary project. Inspired by traveling to the Western United States, the songs cover themes such as: time, home, forgiveness, grace, truth, childhood and paradox. The resulting deluxe package includes two hours and twenty-three minutes of music on two CDs, two 36-page oversized, extensive lyric booklets, a 120-page journal from the inspirational trip, a 160-page book of poems, short stories and essays, as well as other items such as buttons, posters and stickers. The project was released in June of 2015. September saw a tour of the Northwest.
