May 20 >> our next BarRoom Ball

We've put together a fantastic bill for May 20's BarRoom Ball at Belly Up Tavern.

We're proud to present to you a night sure to have you rockin' on your feet! Show starts at 8pm sharp, with Brawley at 8pm, The Freightshakers at 9pm, and Sara Petite at 10pm. 

  Here's a little bit about our guests:

Sara Petite & The Sugar Daddies >> Sara Petite is a gifted singer-songwriter who possesses the unique ability to reach the hearts and souls of fans young and old. She has the rare gift to craft songs that appeal equally, but are interpreted differently by fans of diverse perspectives. This comes through in her live performances as well. A true original, Sara's music does not conveniently fit into any one musical genre or sub-category, but rather traces her influences in country, bluegrass, rock and folk, and emerges into a sound completely her own. As welcome in senior citizen centers as she is in biker bars, nightclub venues and festivals, Sara is as American as apple pie and Harley Davidson. She is gritty, she is wild, she is tender with a soul of a child.

Freightshakers >> Ameripolitan Award Winner 2015, Outlaw Country >> So while everyone sits around moaning the blues about the "death of the LA Country scene"...these boys fly a big finger in the face of the 70's rock that is being passed off as country music on the radio. Led by Gethen Jenkins who arrived in Southern California via West Virginia and Alaska (somebody get that boy a damn map!!) these boys are keeping country alive regardless of FM radio. Throw on a worn-out truckers cap, pop open something cold and cheap, and get ready for a good time!

Next Show : MAR 26 Belly Up : BarRoom Ball

We're hosting a new series of shows at Belly Up Tavern...starting March 26!  Join us for Brawley's BarRoom Ball for the best in Americana, Country, Roots, and Western Swing... homegrown and bands and our friends that happen to be passing through town!

Thursday's show features: 

Brawley at 8pm -- opening the night

<< Sam Outlaw at 9pm >>
Sam is the talk of the town...he has just recorded a record with Ry Cooder and has been featured as one of Rolling Stone Country's "one to watch."  His band also features San Diego's own Molly Jenson. Sam writes original songs that seek to capture the spirit of the classic country music he learned from his favorite singers: George Jones, Willie Nelson, Gene Watson, Don Williams, Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakam, etc.  This band is a new, original upcoming artist you won't want to miss.

<< Alex Woodard at 10pm >>
Alex is an incredible storyteller, crafting tales of love, loss and life and supported by a band that hints at influences of Springsteen and Petty, yet completely his own.  He has toured nationally behind five critically-acclaimed albums, earning prestigious industry nods and sharing the stage with some of today’s most popular acts. His book/album package "For The Sender" (Hay House) features his story of release and redemption woven through songs written about real-life letters. When he’s not surfing in his beach town north of San Diego, Alex lives with a big dog and bigger horse in the mountains of Idaho.
