Tues, Feb 4 – The Moonrise Club with The Icy Hot Club

The Icy Hot Club is a Los Angeles-based
group that plays modernized Gypsy Jazz music in the style of Django
Reinhardt. They often include re-worked versions of contemporary pop and
rock songs, alongside traditional Gypsy Swing, with 3 part vocal harmonies.
Generally consisting of two guitars and upright bass, Icy Hot Club adds violin,
clarinet, and/or drums as the situation calls for. Guitarists Ethan
Emerson and Ray Bergstrom anchor The Icy Hot Club.



 



Thurs, Feb 6 – Honky Tonk Hacienda

Sam Outlaw is a country singer living in Los
Angeles. This year he released his debut LP produced by Kelly Winrich (Delta
Spirit) and toured with Matt Costa. His latest video “Cry For Me” premiered
recently on CMT.

Moonsville Collective is
an Americana String Band that stands firm in the traditions of Old Time, Folk,
Country and Rhythm and Blues. The band formed in August of 2011 in Costa Mesa,
California and hit the ground running, having played some 250 shows throughout
California, Nevada and Utah in the two years following. They are often related
to, and spoken of carrying the sensibilities of folk legends Levon Helm
(of The Band) and Bob Dylan, the high energy of Old Crow Medicine Show, and
clever lyrics like those of Hank Williams and Huddy “Ledbelly” Ledbetter. This
sextet is made up of multi-instrumentalists where behind three part vocal
harmonies is a mix of dobro, slide guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, 5 string
banjo, resonator guitar, fiddle, mouth harp, kazoo, and a tight rhythm section
of upright bass and loose drums about the stage.

Tues, Feb 11 – The Moonrise Club with Benny Brydern Quartet

Elegant
and hot swing from the 1930s is more popular than ever. Celebrating the music
of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli's innovative Hot Club Quintette de
France, Benny Brydern's Quartet, a sassy, snappy ensemble, consisting
of violin, two guitars and a string bass, delivers early jazz swing with punch
and perfection.

Thurs, Feb 13 – The Moonrise Club with
Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang

Dave Stuckey & The
Hot House Gang
is
a hard-swinging, take-no-prisoners aggregation whose main objective is to bring
the heat, get off your seat, and provoke you to move your feet. Stuckey has
hunted up some of the most torrid Traditional Jazz and Old Time players in the
wilds of Los Angeles tear through the night with a dose of that Django sound.

Tues, Feb 18 – The Moonrise Club with Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys

With
her sleek bob haircut (usually with a flower placed just so), vintage fashion
sense, strikingly beautiful looks and artfully customized ukulele, Janet
Klein
might seem at first to be a simple novelty act, a 21st-century
hipster "ironically" recreating the subtly naughty looks of a
fin-de-siècle French postcard. Then she opens her mouth to sing. There's no
Betty Boop hiccups or Mae West-style brassiness in her charmingly original
voice. Bearing an ever-expanding repertoire of, as she puts it, "obscure,
lovely and naughty songs from the 1910's, 20's and 30's," Janet Klein is a
musical archeologist hiding in the body of an F. Scott Fitzgerald heroine. The
Parlor Boys is a loose-knit conglomeration that can include from four to up a
dozen musicians.

Thurs, Feb 20 – Honky Tonk Hacienda
with Grant Langston & The
Supermodels, JD Crawford



Grant
Langston
grew up in Hartselle, Alabama, on a steady diet of Hank Jr.,
Jerry Reed, Merle Haggard and gospel quartets. On his latest album there are
rollicking honky tonk tunes alt country workouts and sweet ballads - all of it
steeped in the West Coast-styled country of Langston's own heroes.  Anyone who laments the demise of authentic
country music can take comfort that a burgeoning underground movement has
emerged across Southern California and Langston is an artist at the center of
it all. Trouble Knows: http://youtu.be/vq0KYDJU82k



 



JD
Crawford
 Honky Tonk music is
everywhere! No one knows this better than veteran Singer/Songwriter JD
Crawford, whose country music prowess and gutsy style has evolved from years of
performing in country saloons, clubs and major casinos throughout Southern
California and Nashville. With his music acting as a sort of homage to the
classics, a distinctive middle-point between Ray Price and Dwight Yoakam,
vocalist JD Crawford's honest crooning ranges from soft and stirring to fierce
and foot-stompin' friendly. His deep resonant voice fits country music like a
good Stetson.

Tues, Feb 25 – The Moonrise Club with Ted Russell Kamp & The Moonrise Melody
Makers



Ted
Russell Kamp,
a
highly sought-after bassist, has put together the Moonrise Melody Makers
specifically for the experience that is The Moonrise Club. Stellar musicians
put their signatures on iconic music from the early decades of last century for
listeners' and dancers' pleasure alike.



 



Thurs, Feb 27 – Honky Tonk Hacienda
with Ben Reddell Band, Chris Shiflett
& The Dead Peasants



You
may recall Ben Reddell from his place on the
bass behind L.A.’s Leslie Stevens & The Badgers — he’s the tall,
mustachioed longhair who seems like he’d have been equally at home playing with
Willie Nelson as with Roky Erickson. But Reddell has a guitar and a band of his
own, too, and a voice that comes out as weather-beaten and world-weary as any
classic Texan troubadour. Hey, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, There's room for
one more to share that bottle of the strong stuff.

Chris
Shiflett & The Dead Peasants
: While touring around Foo Fighters’ album Wasting Light, lead
guitarist Shiflett was struck with an idea for his other band, The Dead
Peasants: to tour as a cover band after learning as many classic honky-tonk
songs as they could master. As a musician raised on a steady diet of AC/DC and
KISS, who’s also a longtime fan of quintessential country and rockabilly
artists like Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, and Johnny Burnette, the notion was
rooted in a mix of reverence and revelry. Once he arrived home, the band got
together and spent months rehearsing a set before performing a slew of shows
through spring and summer 2012. Together with Shiflett on vocals and guitar,
The Dead Peasants are Jeff Gross (bass) and Luke Tierney (guitar) – three
friends who grew up playing in bands together – as well as Mitch Marine
(drums), Marty Rifkin (pedal steel), and Derek Silverman (keyboards). Most of
them also toured with Shiflett around the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, which
introduced his skill in writing understated, infectious good ol’
Americana-laced rock songs.  They recorded All Hat and No Cattle live and
together in one room at Studio 606 in Los Angeles, CA, with only vocals
overdubbed.
