The Shut Ups and Spaceflyte

The Shut Ups- We're a five-piece new-wave power-pop band from Atlanta and Athens, GA and practice daily at 6AM. We do more before 8AM than most bands do all week.

We're not about Pleasure or Fun. You may enjoy listening to us. You may not. You may pretend to enjoy us because others you respect seem to. They may be pretending, too. In which case you may want to consider what else they're pretending about.

Spaceflyte is a experimental pop band from The apples in stereo's Robert Schneider[2] and John Ferguson and published by The Elephant 6 Recording Company[3]

They have opened for Neutral Milk Hotel in 2015 by playing a cover of "Mystery Juice" from the album Into the sun by Sean Lennon[4] and will be one of Robert Schneider's main side projects while he is completing Graduate school.They have released one song entitled "Visions of Pluto''[3]

GEORGIA WOMEN OF SONG at HENDERSHOT’S

Four versatile and talented Athens’ singer-songwriters – Marty Winkler, Maggie Mason Hunter, Susan Staley and SJ Ursrey – will join forces for a new Georgia Women of Song concert on Saturday, August 24, at Hendershot’s, Athens coziest and most eclectic live music venue.

Each of the singers will take a turn on stage, and they’ll also do some back-up vocals for each other and join their distinctive voices on a few numbers.

Doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

Marty Winkler is an Athens transplant from Nebraska (by way of Minneapolis and New York). Her eclectic songwriting and 4-octave vocalizing encompass jazz, pop, Americana and cabaret. A veteran of Lilith Fair, she has sung on stage with Sheryl Crow, the Dixie Chicks and Sarah McLachlan. She’s been the opening act for musical artists as diverse as Loudon Wainwright III, The Wailers and Tuck & Patti. Her CDs include Under Your Heart, produced by Michael C. Steele of the Randall Bramblett Band. To hear some of her music, please visit www.reverb.nation.com. You can find Marty’s CDs on www.cdbaby.com and www.Amazon.com .

Maggie Hunter began singing with the bluegrass band The Warblers in 1990. They were lucky enough to appear on NPR's Mountain Stage and play at bluegrass festivals with the likes of Doc Watson and Ralph Stanley. She has been playing and recording with The Solstice Sisters since 1994 and is the host of WUGA's Just Folks, a weekly radio program. In her other life, she teaches 6-9 year olds at Athens Montessori, leads the Montessori Singing Circle and feeds dogs, chickens, a snake, a tortoise, 2 finches and a hairless guinea pig on a daily basis.

Susan Staley plays in the singing trio The Solstice Sisters, the early jazz-styled, six-piece band The Hobohemians, and in the old-time fiddle band String Theory. She also books the music at the Athens Farmers Market and also hosted the Athens Folk Music and Dance Society's music variety show The Hoot for many years.

SJ Ursrey is a classically trained singer who taught herself how to play the world’s friendliest instrument- the small but mighty ukulele. She sings opera, rock-n-roll, R&B, show tunes, folk, jazz, and whatever spooky style that is in her main gig, Honeychild. She’s sung with Dark Meat, Dream Boat, Hope for Agoldensummer, Kishi Bashi, Hayride, with tons of other awesome musicians and at lots and lots of karaoke parties. She teaches yoga at Five Points Yoga and sings in savasana everytime because if she doesn’t, she gets hate mail. She’s also been acting on some TV shows. Stay tuned!

LEYA, Michael Potter, and Social Circle

LEYA. Violinist Adam Markiewicz (The Dreebs) and harpist Marilu Donovan have succeeded in creating an incredibly original sound for their project. They combine modernity and antiquity with their chosen instruments by taking ideas from contemporary pop and experimental music, and seamlessly integrating them into classical instrumentation and moods. Utilizing a combination of normal and detuned intervals together with ethereal layered vocals, the resulting sound of LEYA is unmistakable and haunting. It is both ancient and singular in tone, but remains open to the influences and ideas of the modern day underground in it’s structural simplicity.

One Ton Tomato

One Ton Tomato is an eclectic blend of Salsa, Mambo and Latin Jazz featuring Dr. Marc Gilley (Saxophone), Brian Smith (Bass), Greg Hankins (Piano), Dr. Todd Mueller (Latin Percussion) and Tony “Doc” McCutchen (Drum Set). Most of these musicians came together after their involvement in the UGA Salsa Band to satisfy their love for this type of music and to perpetuate the performance of this exciting, energetic and audience- friendly style of music.
The Name of the Group: as you may have guessed, the name “One Ton Tomato” is derived from the often misunderstood lyrics to one of the world’s most famous Salsa hits by Celia Cruz: “Guantanamera.”
The Repertoire: Many of the most well-known Latin Jazz and Salsa figures are represented: Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez, Michel Camilo, Mongo Santamaria, Ray Baretto, and Cal Tjader as well as Brazilian Bossa Nova/Jazz by Antonio Carlos Jobim and others. You will also hear creative, original arrangements of Jazz standards that will please your palate, whether your interest is in dancing or simply enjoying the Latin grooves.

Thayer Sarrano and Friends

"One part shoegaze, another couple parts Southern gothic, a dash of folk, some classic country, and whatever else she pleases, Thayer Sarrano has emerged this spring with new record. Wings Alleluia is the album that every singer/songwriter strives for, but rarely hits. Definitely a “lights off” affair, but Sarrrano isn’t unleashing a darkness to swallow you whole. Instead, she reaches out to the listener with hope. She isn’t just a musician, she is a guide..”
-News Whistle

ATHENS this friday @hendershots_ ! Playing solo guitar and piano, + special guests throughout the evening. Come hang out with me before I leave town for a while ❤️

House of Waters (feat Max ZT) and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra

CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

 

Lauded as the “Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer” by NPR, Max ZT is an innovator of the instrument. Taking his roots from Irish folk music, Max has transplanted his compositional techniques to both Senegal, where he studied the Mandinko technique with the Cissoko griot family, and to India, where he received a grant to study under the santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. His fresh perspective and bold experimentalism have been the backbone to beautiful, complex, and genuine compositions, while his unorthodox playing style has been a pioneering force in revolutionizing dulcimer techniques.

 Moto Fukushima has been playing music for as long as he can remember. Accompanying such greats as Joe Lovano, Mike Stern, and Dave Weckl, he has redefined the role of the bass. With a strong background in jazz improvisation, Western classical music and the African inspired musics of South America, Moto's playing is an amazing combination of finesse, subtlety, and power.

 Drummer Ignacio Rivas Bixio mixes South American rhythms with powerful fusion beats. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Ignacio moved to NYC after graduating from Berklee College of Music, and is one of the most sought after drummers on the scene.

 House of Waters has scored an Emmy winning documentary for ESPN, and has shared the stage with some of the most influential musical leaders of the century including: Pandit Ravi Shankar, Victor Wooten, Tinariwen, Jimmy Cliff, Snarky Puppy, Karsh Kale, and more.

 Their self titled first record on Snarky Puppy’s GroundUP Record Label – House of Waters – debuted at #2 on the iTunes World Music Charts. All About Jazz calls it, “A rare and beautiful gem,” while TimeOutNY calls their performances “A sight to behold.”

Jonathan Scales is one of the most innovative steel pannists on the planet, and is redefining and challenging traditional expectations of his signature instrument. In his hands, the sonic palette of an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical resorts is radically expanded to mimic the role of horns, piano, vibraphone or marimba due to his stunning, virtuosic technique. Scales’ mesmerizing compositions have captivated listeners and elevated him to the status of a true composer, forging new territory in the medium of instrumental music.

Although Scales’ writing produces songs that are ultimately accessible and danceable, the compositions can be remarkably complex and difficult to perform. As a result, the power trio whimsically named Jonathan Scales Fourchestra has always had a fluid lineup top-notch musicians, and even included an “all-star” version with bassist MonoNeon (Prince, Ghost Note), drummer Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy, Snoop Dogg) and percussionist Weedie Braimah (Trombone Shorty, Nth Power), as well as a number of other talented marquee value players. Throughout these changes, Scales has demonstrated remarkable perseverance and persistence, a topic that he presented in a TED Talk, while continuing to write and develop his craft and touring the North American and European club and festival circuit—as well as dates in Japan, Central America and The Caribbean. Scales also represented the United States through the Department of State as a musical ambassador in a four week concert tour of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Indonesia in early 2017, an honor for which he was chosen from among three hundred finalists.
