Syrrup (Memphis), The Rare Occassions, and Summer Alicia @ Flagstaff Brewing Company

Syrrup’s music blossomed from a rich Jazz influence, as the members are involved in the Jazz scene of Memphis where they met. However, they came together to create original music that explores Soul, Folk, Rock, Pop, and more. They are embarking on a nation-wide tour for the release of their new album Simple. Join us for an evening of smooth and soulful sounds! Hear that flow. Taste that shuga. Pass that Syrrup.

Levi Platero @ Firecreek Coffee Company
Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm – Mar 2 @ 12:00 am

Southwest Blues Rockers from the Eastern Agency of the Navajo Nation.

Levi Platero is from the Navajo Nation of the Southwest region of the United States. With his family band “The Plateros” they emerged on the music scene in 2004 as a blues rock power trio compared to the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Los Lonely Boys and ZZ Top. After a decade of touring the US with his family band, a one and half year run as a member of the Indigenous (Lakota blues band), Levi decided it was time to get back to his own music. He then recruited a new band, began touring, went into the studio and released a self titled EP featuring the single “Take Me Back” which went on to win the 2016 New Mexico Music Awards for Best Blues.

Levi is a great example of a guitar player with a gift of guitar playing intuition of much more experienced player. Levi’s quiet nature is unleashed in a style that mixes a spectrum of Texas Blues, vintage rock, to modern guitar heroes such as Eric Johnson and Steve Vai. With a captivating live show he ranges from flurries of guitar acrobatics all the way down to soulful expressiveness. Levi is a guitarist and talent to be reckoned with and will continue to shine in the Blues/Rock genre.

The Dabblers’ driving drums, energizing lead guitar solos, and timeless lyrics, push their flavor of high-altitude psychedelic rock to new boundaries.

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.
