The Paisley Fields – wsg Miranda Pennington

at TAFFYs Tuesday, June 28th – 7:30pm

The Paisley Fields are a queer country band unapologetic about pushing boundaries and seeking inspiration in the unexpected.

The Paisley Fields are a Brooklyn based alt-country band, unapologetic about pushing boundaries and seeking inspiration in the unexpected. Though lead singer James Wilson is inspired by country musicians like Dolly Parton and Gram Parsons, he wanted The Paisley Fields lyrics to reflect a modern world. Pittsburgh City Paper writes, “While The Paisley Fields have a good bit in common with contemporary country — rich production, songs with pop bones and twangy accents — the band probably won’t be touring with Toby Keith anytime soon. They’re a refreshing change from country radio.” The Paisley Fields tour frequently, and their latest album, Oh These Urban Fences, is described by No Depression as “a labor of love that demands your attention.”

Wednesday, June 29th- 7:30pm

Our identity is found at the three-way intersection of a songwriting obsession, a vie for charisma, and a yearning for release. The music we make combines the warmth of acoustic instrumentation over a dynamic yet steady rhythm. The lyrics desperately exude longing and heartbreak, yet our songs are wrought with affection.

The Apollo Affair @ Taffys of Eaton
Jul 1 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
The Apollo Affair @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

The Apollo Affair at TAFFYs July 1 – 8:00pm. 

Formed in the winter of 2013 in a cramped one bedroom apartment in Southeast Wisconsin, The Apollo Affair is an acoustic experience that redefines the expectations associated with the “singer-songwriter” genre. Comprised of guitarist Chris Shanafelt and vocalist and frontwoman Megan Mehl, the duo have been heating up the Midwest with their feverish music and aggressive performances. With 2 EP releases under their belt (sampler “3P” in 2013 and 6-track “FEVER” in 2014) and a darker, heavier full-length release on the way, The Apollo Affair possesses an undeniable drive that borderlines upon obsession.

Chris and Megan met in the fall of 2010 while both were studying classical music performance at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. While Megan had no prior experience as a performer outside of a formal academic setting, Chris had been writing and playing since 2005. With 2 bands (punk and ska-based “Black Tie” and garage funk-rock “MV Classic and the Rollin’ Gypsies”) and a solo acoustic career under his belt, Chris brought a wealth of variety and experience to The Apollo Affair’s songwriting. After some experimentation, Chris and Megan merged their musical backgrounds and creative visions to develop a sound that is both unique in its storytelling and poignant in its execution.

The two offer up a rapturous performance centered around their original music, while possessing a catalogue of thoughtfully chosen covers from the 1960’s to today. As Chris frenetically punches away at his guitar, Megan’s swaggering attitude and powerhouse vocals draw listeners in and seize their attention. The world in which The Apollo Affair’s music exists comes to life with Chris’s playing, establishing the moody atmosphere in which Megan’s characters live. She croons, growls, belts, and screams into melodic lines that demonstrate her acumen for impassioned songwriting. The Apollo Affair aims to give listeners the uncompromising, scintillating energy of a full rock band within the nuanced context of an acoustic duo.

The Apollo Affair are currently booking and performing shows around the Midwest. They are also in the midst of putting together material for a new full-length acoustic album, which they hope to release in Spring of 2016.

Butch Ross @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Butch Ross world class dulcimer player will perform Sat. July 2nd – 8pm at TAFFYs.

Turns the mountain dulcimer into a virtuoso’s instrument, drawing unexpected power and expressiveness.

When Butch Ross opened for Bill Staines last fall, he received a rare accolade: a standing ovation for an opening act. He transforms the lowly mountain dulcimer into a virtuoso’s instrument, drawing from it unexpected power and expressiveness. He mixes old country and Appalachian songs with his own wordy, literate, poetic ballads about people, places, and situations you might read about in a good book of short stories. He has a strong clear voice and a stage presence of boyish charm. –Minstrel Coffeehouse

Butch Ross is a rockstar. He plays the mountain dulcimer and in case you’re thinking “Rockstar? Mountain Dulcimer? Doesn’t compute,” let me fill you in on a little something. Butch Ross does something that no one else can touch. What he does is amazing. His genius is in the fact that he found something unique to him and he just worked it to a point where no one can come close to matching it. He’s seriously brilliant. –Hayley Graham

Quotes From the Press:

“it’s almost impossible to put into words the multitude of chordal harmonies and interwoven distonic cross-stitching one person can generate with just four strings.” -GOTFOLK.COM

“We’re lucky to have such a talented, interesting musician living in Chattanooga” -Sean Phipps, Times Free Press

“an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary music” -Neal Walters, Dulcimer Players News

“it’s beautiful. It’s music that adults make. -Jon Berger, Urban Folk

“A Diverting Album” -Rob Weir, Sing Out! magazine

“Hand-Worn, Affable and Warm.” -Joey Sweeney, Philadelphia Weekly

“One of Philadelphia’s brightest talents” -LACH, Fortified records

He’s amazing live and this album really builds on his solo work…Never too much and always just right.” -Vanessa Wills, WPRB

“Ross will grab you on the first listen…quirky fun and lively. the songs are filled with catchy hooks and humorous lyrics. He’s bound for something good.” -Sara Barrs, Music Matters Review

“Young, irreverent, funny, talented.” -Robin Hoffman, Robin’s Nest House Concert Series

Brendan Brooks @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Brendan Brooks

Brendan Brooks was born in 1985 in a small rural town of Wonewoc Wisconsin.  Raised in the church and knowing God Brendan first picked up a guitar at age 15.  Determined and self-taught, his youth pastor encouraged him to start a music program within the youth group at Faith Evangelical Free Church in Sparta Wisconsin and still today is active in leading and worshiping with the youth.  In 2007 Brendan helped start and joined the band Finding Fortress based out of Sparta Wisconsin where he helped write and create the album titled, Lead.

The band was featured on radio across the Midwest.  Finding Fortress disbanded in 2010 and Brendan went back to focusing on worship leading.  In the fall of 2010 Brendan took over the music program at Valton Wesleyan Church near Wonewoc Wisconsin where he currently is serving.  In the fall of 2013 God started opening doors and Brendan started a solo career.  2014-15 were big years as Brendan got connected to a producer in Nashville.

The album titled Broken was created and is nearing completion.  The album will be released in the spring of 2016.  Brendan loves the Lord and puts Him first in his song writing and performances.  For more information use the booking link at the top of the page and feel free to send a message.  May God bless.

Andrew Adkins @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Andrew Adkins

 

As a songwriter in Nashville, Andrew Adkins’ songs have been hailed by critics from Paste Magazine, AXS-TV, No Depression and Vintage Guitar Magazine for their unique and diverse sounds and blending of influences. He has had songs featured on ABC, DirectTV, MTV, USA Network, The Washington Post and EntertainmentWeekly.com. His song “I’m Indestructible” is featured in the trailer for the film, ‘Cymbeline’ (Lionsgate Films) starring Ethan Hawke, Dakota Johnson and Milla Jovovich. The popular music blog Consequence of Sound recently debuted the trailer for the Colin Hanks’ Tower Records documentary “All Things Must Pass” which features Andrew’s song “Fire & Brimstone”.

Andrew is a former member of the Dualtone recording group Mellow Down Easy. In 2012 he helped form the band Lions for Real. Shortly thereafter they were signed to actor Ryan Gosling and Timmy “The Terror” Anderson’s Los Angeles label Werewolf Heart Records. Recently he has released a couple of solo projects in the past year under the pseudonyms The Colored Parade and Indigenous Engines.

Glass Castles, Andrew’s forthcoming solo album, will be released on January 15, 2016.
The album is 13 new songs steeped in a varied mixture of Americana, Blues, Country with shades of Folk-Rock. Unique melodies with compelling and provocative lyrics keeps the listener engaged and intrigued. Andrew’s soulful vocals guide you in a soft yet edgy manner through stories of ghost towns, coal mines, self-doubt/self-worth, smokey bars and the precariously reckless side of love. The songs are well crafted and pieced together in a thoughtfully ambitious style. His distinct production style ties it all together in a cohesively viable, true artistic body of work.

Prophets of Addiction @ Taffys of Eaton

Prophets of Addiction @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Prophet of Addictions

performing Wed. July 20th – 7:30pm at legendary TAFFYs

Every once in a great – and blessed – while, a band comes along that encapsulates everything that’s great about rock-n-roll. The Prophets of Addiction is that band. These guys are so authentic and such masters at what they do that it’s like some mad scientist extracted the pure essence from their genre – Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses, The Ramones, Hanoi Rocks, LA Guns, Lords of the New Church and all the best glam/punk bands – and gave rise to The Prophets of Addiction. With songs that will play in your head long after the CD stops and looks that kill, The Prophets of Addiction are the total package. It’s been way too long for a band like POA to come to us lovers of metal, mascara and musical mayhem. Their debut album “Babylon Boulevard” brings back those freewheeling, whiskey soaked, halcyon days (nights, really) when the Sunset Strip hosted countless punk/metal mash-up bands looking to hit the big time – and, of course, all the girls, girls, girls they could get.

Fast forward to 2010, when POA formed, and this era lives on in the new millennium. The Prophets of Addiction are: lead singer and bass player Lesli Sanders, Jimmy Mess on drums and G.G. and Brandon Barger on guitar. Sanders produced the CD. Made for what he does, Sanders seems to have been birthed from the very womb of the LA glam scene. He attracted many new fans while playing in several highly influential national acts in the past– and partying as hard as he jammed onstage. After a while, the drugs and booze got to be too much and he returned to his hometown. Now in his fifth year of being free of those addictions, Sanders puts his all into his music and it shows. The primary songwriter among the Prophets, he starts with a riff or tune and the whole band jumps in to craft the song. Sanders writes the lyrics, and through his writing he tells his stories. “Babylon Boulevard” shows this in myriad ways. Musically, every track is markedly different from the next but with a common thread of swagger and strut.

They pulled in some big names for their debut album and the production value of “Babylon Boulevard” is top notch. Phil Soussan did the mixing: his long resume includes playing bass with Ozzy Osbourne and co-writing Ozzy’s hit “Shot in the Dark.” The CD was mastered by Dave Hillis, whose work can be heard in albums ranging from Pearl Jam to Queensryche.

The debut CD has garnered nothing but praise throughout the press, and industry insiders are claiming Prophets Of Addiction have what it takes to make a lasting impact on the music scene for years to come. The band has successfully completed tours of Europe, Australia, as well as the USA. Plans are currently underway for a return to Europe in Spring of 2013.

The band is currently in the writing and pre-production stages for the follow up to “Babylon Boulevard as well as actively seeking labels for an upcoming release. Here’s what
the press is saying:

#2 CD of 2010 Adam Kulkey Metal Hammer Magazine

Babylon Boulevard is one of the best debut for a long time in this genre and because nowadays
Europe is more open for bands like The Prophets of Addiction (especially Italy and Spain), hopefully we can
catch them live in the summer.9 out of 10
-Adam Kulkey Metal Hammer Magazine

It’ll have all the glam bangers jumping for joy with plenty of big choruses and the sleazy drawl of Lesli
Sanders; this is possibly the best album of its genre for many a moon – if only Guns N’ Roses still made
records like this the world would be a better place. It’s unashamedly down ‘n’ dirty and combines glammed up
glimpses of the Ramones (‘Rejection’) with some super sleazy riffage like the La Guns used to peddle (‘Trigger’)
to the summery wheeze of ‘Where R U Now’. The vocals here remind me a little of Stiv Bators. A most enjoyable
trip indeed.
www.uberrock.co.uk

Definitely worth seeking out, if you still wear anything shiny made by Lip Service…Or if you remember what
individuality, liberty, rebellion, and FUN felt like. Epic. Gnarly.
-Sugar Buzz Magazine

Sometimes rock ‘n’ roll can get dissected and way too serious and people tend to lose sight of the fact that more
often than not it’s an entertainment business, it’s not all about social commentary or politics and that’s where The
Prophets Of Addiction come in. It’s brash, noisy, snotty and a lot of fun. Obvious comparisons would be the
likes of Guns N’ Roses – there is an unavoidable comparison, especially on opener ‘Hang Me Up Sanders has
similar tones to that of Mr W Axl Rose – Well delivered, well played and a cut above some of the usual trash
that watered down this genre.
http://www.uberrock.co.uk/

Lesli’s got star power. I like the upbeat pop anthems, and the slithering gothic creepiness, that reminds
me of several different Cali death-rock bands, including the Ultras, Christian Death, and Forty Five Grave.
“Where R U Now” is almost flawlessly beautiful, in that glimmery, juvenile, “Too Fast For Love”, meets Skid
Row’s “I Remember You”, sorta way. At their best, they come on, like a more dangerous, and volatile version of
Electric Angels, they definitely possess the full-blown, arena shakin’ rockstar aspirations

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.

Jarius Road @ TAFFYs | Eaton | Ohio | United States

Jarius Road

   At the time of the band’s inception and even still today, the members of Jarius Road were and are outsiders; out of place with the insincerity of the current state of music and strangers in their own back yard. Gone are the days when you would go to a bar and rub elbows with a hundred of your closest friends while listening to real musicians play real instruments to make real music.  And in its place? IPODS and DJs… As a respite to break up the monotony of modern music, and perhaps to salvage what was left of their sanity, the members of Jarius Road decided to do what they do best; play great Rock n’ Roll music!

    Born out of southwest Ohio, Jarius Road is the result of a fusion between many different musical backgrounds and a diversity of influences. With a stage presence and bluesy swagger that puts you in mind of The Black Crowes or The Allman Brothers Band, the boys in Jarius Road are happy to let their influences show through in their music; influences that go as deep as some of the best Country, Blues, and Rock n’ Roll artists from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. What can only be described as Rock n’ Roll that cuts down to the bone, their music is an invigorating blend of Rock, Blues, and Outlaw Country that is more of a nod to the grandfathers of the genres. With each subsequent show the band plays, Jarius Road attains new fans and continues to gain the respect of their peers with their brand of Rock n’ Roll music.  With a set list that includes powerhouse originals like When I Reign, The Road, and Here’s To Yesterday as well as fan favorite covers like Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, Marshall Tucker Band’s Can’t You See, and The Allman Brothers Band’s Soulshine, Jarius Road delivers a performance that should not be missed!

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

The Best Open Mic Around Since 1999 @ Taffy's of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

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.

Jon Brooks @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

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 @ Taffys of Eaton | Eaton | Ohio | United States

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.
