ALL AGES SHOW

Eliot Lewis Band Official Web Page

    Eliot Lewis is a singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist as well as being a key member of the the Daryl Hall & John Oates band. Eliot is also one of the original featured musicians on MTV’s "Live From Daryl's House”. His contributions stand out on some of the best moments from the show including performances with Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Walsh, Todd Rundgren,Train, Grace Potter, Ben Folds, Booker T, Jewel, Rob Thomas, Keb Mo, Jason Mraz, Darius Rucker, Gavin DeGraw and many, many others. Earlier in his career Eliot spent several years as a key member of the The Average White Band. Eliot toured, wrote and also produced several songs for the Scottish soul band. 

    "Eliot is a musician who can do it all, great singer, songwriter and guitarist. He rocks and he's got soul. No one does it quite like him" - Daryl Hall 

    Having mastered four instruments over the course of his career; guitar, keyboard, bass and drums, Eliot blazed his own trail as a solo artist sharing his distinctive brand of rock & soul through solo releases and hundreds of solo tour dates all over the world. Eliot’s songs come from the inside out. “I think the main inspiration for any of my records is to convey these little slices of life, most of my songs are written about my own experiences and situations”. 

    There are many who shaped Eliot’s music and writing. “As a guitar player, definitely Jeff Beck who I've been listening to all my life, as well as Billy Gibbons who I had the great fortune of working with recently, and Peter Frampton who I actually jammed with when I was 14 yrs old. I had the amazing experience of meeting and seeing many influential artists when I was a kid mainly at Madison Square Garden in New York City. A place I just played with Hall & Oates which was a lifetime dream. One of the first writers to in- spire me to write songs was Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, another favorite band of mine that I just worked with on Live From Daryl's House.” 

    In 2016 Eliot signed an exclusive recording partnership with The SoNo Recording Group. His first release, entitled Adventure, is a collection of eleven new recordings; ten originals written, performed, and produced by Eliot and one cover of the Bad Com- pany classic, “Ready For Love”. “My goal with this record is to try to present a record that comes from the place that first inspired me, the kind of classic stripped down rock & soul before all the slick production with auto tuning became so common place” 

    Adventure will be released on CD, digital download, and streaming on Friday October 28th world-wide vis SRG Records / The ILS Group / Universal Music Group.

SORAIA / The GTV's

Doors - 7:30 PM - $12. Advance

Tickets are also available Now at The Record Collector

ALL AGES SHOW

Soraia Official Web Page

GTV's Official Web Page

    SORAIA:

    Soraia epitomizes raw power, unrelenting energy, chaos, and freedom. ZouZou Mansour and Travis Smith are the core of this group -- their songwriting rooted in early garage rock with strong dynamics and melody -- and their live show  frenetic and intensely interactive.  ZouZou has been referred to as "a true mix of Iggy Pop and Joan Jett" onstage.They have toured constantly throughout the US, playing the dingiest corner dive bar, to the most massive amphitheaters in their career, even opening Milwaukee's Summerfest in 2009. Venue highlights include playing their hometown stadium, Wells Fargo Center, as supporting act, as well as opening  for national bands at The Rave in Milwaukee as far back as 2006. Their ever-blossoming writing career includes four studio albums, one live cd, one EP, and many singles. 

    Their last record garnered their first #1 song with their attitude-laden, punk cover of The Kinks' "(I'm Not) Like Everybody Else" on rock radio in South America (Radio Doble Nueve in Peru) after spending 10 weeks in the Top 40 there. In addition,  Little Steven Van Zandt's SiriusXM Radio Station "The Underground Garage" Channel 21 chose their song "Electrocutioner" as the #1 "Coolest Song of the year 2016".

    Previous records also reached the Top Ten Songs of the Year, with single "Love Like Voodoo" as the #2 "Coolest Song of 2013", and their cover of The Kinks' "(I'm Not) Like Everybody Else" was the #5 "Coolest Song of 2014" (according to their listeners' poll). In addition, both rock n' roll legends and deejays Bill Kelly, Genya Ravan, Kid Leo, and Michael Des Barres chose Soraia's single "(I'm Not) Like Everybody Else" among their favorite "Top Ten Coolest Songs of 2014".

    Above all this, Soraia's ferociously energetic, intoxicating live shows are their trademark calling card, showcasing a will to defy and survive. True rebels of rock 'n' roll, Soraia has overcome hundreds of obstacles other less fortuitous bands would never survive thanks to their unwavering love of music and all that it encompasses.
    Whether in a hot, sweaty rock club or huge amphitheatre, Soraia's charisma and spirit transcend the concert stage and reach all those who witness the band live. Rarely will you see a band with as much magic and soul as Soraia, and never will you hear a journey so full of hope and heart as this band's story. Their every breath is a testament that miracles really do exist, and that the underdog really can win the whole world.

    The GTV's:

    After Philadelphia garage rock heroes Mondo Topless finally called it a day in 2011, keyboard man and group leader Sam Steinig wasted no time launching a new project, and the GTVs show he's taken his love of cool sounds from the past and headed out in a new direction. On their debut album, Sh'Bang!, released by Teen Sound Records, the GTVs start with the raunchy guitars and booming drums of vintag...e garage rock and fuse them with classic soul and R&B influences, with Steinig making like Booker T. Jones, Alan Price, or Felix Cavaliere on the Hammond organ as the group writes hard-grooving tunes like "Left Me on the Corner" and "Mind the Gap." While folks who have followed Steinig's work in the past will recognize his stamp on this music, the GTVs are clearly a band and not just someone's backing crew.

    Baltimore vinyl imprint Hidden Volume released a 7" single in early 2016 (Organ Donor b/w Here's a Thing), an all-instrumental release recorded in mono by James Everhart and Will Donnelly, members of Low Cut Connie.

    The latest incarnation of the band (Patrick Crowling: Bass, Ron Wandover: Drums, and Vince Duane: Guitar) can hold down the backbeat, heat up the dancefloor, or push these songs into high gear as the situation demands. Folks who dug Mondo Topless will certainly find lots to like in the GTVs, but if you're down with the retro-soul scene or just dig R&B-flavored music that will let you wind it up on the dancefloor, you should put The GTVs on your shopping list pronto.
