With great pleasure, we are finally able to tell you to mark your calendars... that's right, concerts are back and better than ever!
We are set to welcome our first artist of the fall season to the stage on Saturday, October 24.
Ranked by Rolling Stone's magazine in the "10 New Artists You Need To Know: Fall 2014," Margo and the Price Tags will be the the first band to test out our new digs! Margo's voice and songs ache with the same world-weariness that permeated Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette's songs with a hint of Dolly Parton.
She describes her songs as honest, no frills country classic. The band vowed to never write songs about love, but they use love as an illustration to everything. Their music is raw, yet animated and intimate. It's no doubt one of a kind. Their unique sound is a perfect fit for the Uptown Grill Playlist Theater.
After bringing a new act to our stage in October, we welcome a classic back to our stage in November.
You guessed it, Miles Nielsen returns for his famous Thanksgiving Eve show on Wednesday, November 25. (And no this is not a Cheap Trick).
For those who may not know or have forgotten, Miles is the son of Rick Nielsen, band member and guitarist of Cheap Trick. Miles grew up around this band, but his style has a timeless and mature feel to it. His style is unique and one that we always welcome back.
One of his favorite venues to perform in is the listening room kind where he can do the singer-songwriter mode and play solo or with another guitarist. His music comes off with a melodic, roots-rock sound.
Miles Nielsen is a crowd favorite (only 3 months, 2 weeks, and 5 days until he takes our stage again, but who's counting?).
Be on the lookout... tickets for these two shows will be available soon. We are so excited to welcome live music back to our newly renovated Playlist Theater!
See you then!
