Okilly Dokilly – The World’s Only Nedal Band @ The Orpheum Theater
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 11:30 pm
Okilly Dokilly - The World's Only Nedal Band @ The Orpheum Theater

Okilly Dokilly is the world’s only Nedal band. Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, a majority of the band’s lyrics are direct Ned quotes. The band’s members include Head Ned, Red Ned, Thread Ned, Stead Ned and Bled Ned.

Established in 2015, the band found success before ever playing their first show, becoming a viral phenomenon after releasing just a few press photos and a 4-song demo. Within 2 weeks, the band had nearly 30,000 Facebook fans and was featured by numerous publications including Billboard, Time, The Independent, BBC, Esquire, Vice and many more.

Okilly Dokilly’s live shows are high energy affairs that weave together comedy and brutality. Guttural screams and pounding drums provide a soundtrack for the pummeling of an inflatable donut as green sweaters and round glasses blur across the stage.
As of early 2016, Okilly Dokilly has been steadily working on their debut record, which is projected to release later in the year.

Slaid Cleaves & Robbie Fulks @ Coconino Center for the Arts
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The show will take place on Sunday, April 5, 2020, doors are at 7:00pm and the show will start at 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 advance/ $30 day of show. Arts Council Members recieve 10% discount!

Slaid Cleaves:

The music of Austin-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Slaid Cleaves is rootedin country and traditional folk songs, but it is unusual enough to have held interest in a sea of singer/songwriters across the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. While he released a handful of recordings during the early ’90s, he gained significant notice with No Angel Knows, which was released on Rounder’s Philo subsidiary in 1997. Joined by former Lucinda Williams guitarist Gurf Morlix, Cleaves combined his passion for folk songs, blues, and traditional country music into an amalgamation of styles known as Americana. Not surprisingly, the album rode high into the charts at Americana-formatted radio stations around the U.S. and Canada in 1997. The release set the tone for the rest of his career.

Robbie Fulks:

Nominated for two 2017 Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album (Upland Stories) and Best American Roots Song (“Alabama at Night”)!

Robbie Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. He learned guitar from his dad, banjo from Earl Scruggs and John Hartford records, and fiddle (long since laid down in disgrace) on his own. He attended Columbia College in New York City in 1980 and dropped out in 1982 to focus on the Greenwich Village songwriter scene and other ill-advised pursuits.

THE STORY OF METALACHI…

On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilizers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life.

Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor…but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live…always referred to as…METALACHI!

Leftover Salmon @ The Orpheum Theater
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Leftover Salmon @ The Orpheum Theater

Few bands stick around for thirty years. Even fewer bands leave a legacy during that time that marks them as a truly special, once-in-lifetime type band. And no band has done all that and had as much fun as Leftover Salmon. Since their earliest days as a forward thinking, progressive bluegrass band who had the guts to add drums to the mix and who was unafraid to stir in any number of highly combustible styles into their ever evolving sound, to their role as a pioneer of the modern jamband scene, to their current status as elder-statesmen of the scene who cast a huge influential shadow over every festival they play, Leftover Salmon has been a crucial link in keeping alive the traditional music of the past while at the same time pushing that sound forward with their own weirdly, unique style.

Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines @ Golden Sage Farm
May 3 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines @ Golden Sage Farm

It is a Sunday afternoon so we will be starting a bit earlier than usual. Bring your picnic basket and enjoy Sunday dinner in the barn.

Terri Hendrix is a pioneering independent Texas songwriter and an accomplished multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, and harmonica) having recently been recognized by “Acoustic Guitar” Magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters. She has averaged nearly an album a year going all the way back to her 1996 debut. Throughout her career, she has woven folk, pop, country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own — a playful mix that makes for a highly energetic and spiritually uplifting live show in any setting, from intimate listening rooms and theaters to outdoor festivals. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy-winning instrumental (the Dixie Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered numerous other honors and awards.

Joining Terri will be Lloyd Maines, the father of Dixie Chick Natalie Maines, who has established himself as a country music giant, both as a legendary steel guitarist and producer. Maines’ pedal steel work pops up everywhere, from work by earlier non-mainstream artists including Guy Clark, David Byrne, Dixie Chicks, and Radney Foster.

Chet O’Keefe @ Golden Sage Farm
May 6 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Early Summer brings Chet O’Keefe to GSF. Chet’s sound evokes the finest Merle Haggard dance-hall moments on “Take Me Down To The Liquor Store” and the sound of the dark woods on the mysterious, minor-key “Game Bird”. A first class guitarist and singer with an avalanche of tunes and country-western know-how in his back pocket, Chet is branching out from Nashville and bringing his music to where real people live, as all troubadours must do.
