Thomas Rhett scored his first hit in 2013 with “It Goes Like This.”  His platinum-selling second album, “Tangled Up” was released in 2015, spawning four number one singles and the Grammy-nominated “Die a Happy Man.” In 2017, Rhett was named Male Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards.  His latest album, “Life Changes,” was released this past September and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.  He is nominated for multiple CMA Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year.  The awards will be announced on Nov. 8.

Joining Rhett will be special guests Young and Pearce.  Young previously brought his West Coast-meets-Southern sound to Daily’s Place this past July while touring with LADY ANTEBELLUM.  Pearce is touring in support of her debut album “Every Little Thing” and was recognized by People as “the new voice of country.”

A life full of music. That’s the story of Ricky Skaggs. By age 21, he was already considered a “recognized master” of one of America’s most demanding art forms, but his career took him in other directions, catapulting him to popularity and success in the mainstream of country music. His life’s path has taken him to various musical genres, from where it all began in bluegrass music, to striking out on new musical journeys, while still leaving his musical roots intact.

Ricky struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago, and this 14-time GRAMMY Award winner continues to do his part to lead the recent roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive GRAMMY-nominated classics behind him, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label (Bluegrass Rules! in 1998, Ancient Tones in 1999, History of the Future in 2001, Soldier of the Cross, Live at the Charleston Music Hall, and Big Mon: The Songs of Bill Monroe in 2003, Brand New Strings in 2005, Instrumentals in 2007, Salt of the Earth with The Whites in 2008, Honoring the Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947 in 2009 and Ricky Skaggs Solo: Songs My Dad Loved along with Mosaic in 2010), the diverse and masterful tones made by the gifted Skaggs come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart.

Skaggs’ first all-live album with Kentucky Thunder, Live at the Charleston Music Hall (2003) led to an IBMA Award for Instrumental Group of the Year – an award Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder has taken home 8 times in the last decade. The decision to record a live album was an obvious one for Skaggs. From a string of high-profile tour dates with the Dixie Chicks in 2000, to his position as host of the unprecedented

All*Star Bluegrass Celebration which aired nationwide on PBS in 2002, to his participation in the wildly successful 41-city ‘Down from the Mountain’ tour – Ricky has become one of bluegrass’ most dynamic and sought-after live performers.

He counts the current configuration of Kentucky Thunder among the best group of musicians he has ever worked with. “This group of guys meets my approval every night,” Ricky says. “Each and every one of the pickers in Kentucky Thunder totally amazes me in every show…and that, to me, outweighs any award we could ever win.” The all-star lineup of Kentucky Thunder includes Paul Brewster (tenor vocals, rhythm guitar), Russ Carson (banjo), Jake Workman (lead guitar), Mike Barnett (fiddle), Dennis Parker(baritone vocals, guitar) and Jeff Picker (lead bass).

Ricky Skaggs has often said that he is “just trying to make a living” playing the music he loves. But it’s clear that his passion for it puts him in the position to bring his lively, distinctively American form of music out of isolation and into the ears and hearts of audiences across the country and around the world. Ricky Skaggs is always forging ahead with cross-cultural, genre-bending musical ideas and inspirations.

“Rock and roll’s been very, very good to me,” Rhett Miller sings on “Longer Than You’ve Been Alive,” an epic six-minute stream-of-consciousness meditation on his life in music and the opening track to the Old 97’s 2014 release, Most Messed Up. To say that rock and roll has been good to the Old 97’s(guitarist/vocalist Rhett Miller, bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea, and drummer Philip Peeples) would be an understatement. The band emerged from Dallas over 20 years ago at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. The New York Times has described their major label debut, Too Far to Care, as “a cornerstone of the ‘alternative country’ movement… [that] leaned more toward the Clash than the Carter Family.” They’ve released a slew of records since then, garnering praise from NPR and Billboard to SPIN and Rolling Stone. The band performed on television from Letterman to Austin City Limits and had their music appear in countless film and TV soundtracks. Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that he put the band on a continuous loop on his iPod while writing the show’s final scene.

Now, with over 20 years and 10 albums to their name, the Texas alt-country stalwarts are back with their eleventh LP, Graveyard Whistling via ATO Records. The album was recorded in the same Tornillo, Texas studio as their 1996 debut, Too Far to Care. The band also still contains its original four members – Miller, guitarist Ken Bethea, bassist Murry Hammond, and drummer Philip Peeples. “We weren’t trying to remake Too Far to Care, but to make something where fans would say, ‘This band hasn’t lost a step in twenty-some years,’” explains Miller. The result is the 11 songs of Graveyard Whistling, from a group that has earned the respect and veneration as one of the pioneers of the alt-country movement, while still retaining the raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit that first distinguished them from the pack.

While there are new collaborators on Graveyard Whistling, including Nicole Atkins and Butch Walker, there aren’t more than a handful of bands in history who can claim to have an intact, unchanged line-up as they approach 25 years together. There is, of course, no real blueprint or rulebook for sustaining the kind of chemistry that Miller, Bethea, Hammond, and Peeples enjoy.

“I think our longevity can be attributed primarily to our friendship and ability to overcome those moments when egos want to overtake and obliterate everything in their path,” says Miller. “We experienced the hype of the old business model, with all of its excess and idiocy, and also the deconstruction of that model and the advent of the new world, and been able to maintain a fundamental love for each other.”

Jaime Wyatt’s newest release Felony Blues, whose title is a nod to records like David Allan Coe’s Penitentiary Blue, is largely an autobiographical collection of convict love stories, prison songs, and honky-tonk laments.

Wyatt is a striking figure with an old soul and a voice like a force of nature. Regardless of genre, the Los Angeles-based Wyatt is a dynamic performer, who sails naturally between vintage ‘60s and ‘70s country/rock ’n’ soul anthems and heartfelt country ballads of love and corruption. Country radio station 95.3 The Bear recently named her, alongside Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price, as “one of the country artists you may not have heard of, but need to hear.”

Founded in1981 in Jamestown, NY, 10,000 Maniacs is one of the most enduring bands from the early “alternative rock” movement having released close to 20 albums, including 2015’s Twice Told Tales and 2016’s Playing Favorites, while consistently touring the U.S. and abroad.  This multi-platinum band still receives rave reviews of their live performances.

While 2017 marked the 30 year anniversary of the release of 10,000 Maniacs’ critically acclaimed, break-out album, In My Tribe, which Rolling Stone Magazine included in their “100 Best Albums Of The Eighties”, 2018 marks 3 significant anniversaries for the band.  It was 25 years ago in 1993 that that 10,000 Maniacs made their iconic performance on MTV’s “Unplugged”; the released recording would go on to sell millions of copies. Later, in that same year, Mary Ramsey, a backing vocalist on “Unplugged,” began her tenure as lead singer for the band. And 2018 marks the 35th anniversary of the release of their first full-length recording, Secrets of the I Ching, which caught the attention of BBC radio legend John Peel, who brought the band to the attention of millions of listeners worldwide.

To celebrate these milestones on their 2018 tour, 10,000 Maniacs will play select acoustic sets including songs from Secrets of the I Ching and MTV Unplugged as well as their hit songs.

Live at the Acropolis was released in 1994 and is the first ever live album and concert video from the maestro. Recorded at the Herodes Atticus Theatre in Athens with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra from London, the concert took a year and a half to complete. The album was mixed and produced by Yanni in his home studio and was made into a TV special that aired in the States on PBS. Live at the Acropolis became an incredible success and is the second best-selling music video of all time.

Yanni’s iconic performances at the Acropolis in Greece, the Taj Mahal in India, the Forbidden City in China, the Royal Albert Hall in England, the Pyramids in Egypt and El Morro in Puerto Rico have crossed countless borders and have resonated with billions of people across the globe. Yanni has been awarded more than 40 platinum and gold albums worldwide and has sold more than 25 million albums around the world. His most recent albums have seen chart-topping success.

“We had such a wonderful response to last year’s production of The Lion King (Jr.), it made sense to keep the Disney vibe going,” remarked Ian Mairs, Managing Director of Apex Theatre Studio. “For a certain generation of young people, this show’s songs and dance numbers are ingrained in their hearts and minds on a cellular level thanks to countless viewings of the original television production,” added David Loudermilk, the show’s artistic director and choreographer.

TAUK & s.p.o.r.e. @ 1904 Music Hall
Apr 27 @ 8:00 pm
TAUK & s.p.o.r.e. @ 1904 Music Hall | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

TAUK is heavy instrumental rock fusion created by Matt Jalbert (guitar), Charlie Dolan (bass), Alric “A.C.” Carter (keyboard-organ), and Isaac Teel (drums). The transcendent instrumental band seamlessly brings together genres as diverse as melodic rock, fusion, gritty funk, progressive rock, ambient, classic rock, hip hop and jazz.

The Oyster Bay, New York-based quartet has received accolades from a number of tastemaking authorities, including an “On The Verge” feature in Relix Magazine and frequent rotation for the singles “Mindshift”, “Sweet Revenge”, “Dead Signal” and “In the Basement of the Alamo” on Sirius XM Jam On. Despite their years of experience as a musical unit, the quartet is a young promising band that Jambase calls “a guaranteed quickly-ascend band.” The Washington Post describes the band by saying: “TAUK’s instrumental music melds genres and styles, creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that – thanks to a penchant for improv – offers limitless possibilities” and The Deli Magazine singles out the band’s compelling melodic sense through explaining: “the quartet has a rare ability to channel emotional melodic leads, and all without a lead singer.”

The band’s latest album, Collisions, is a breakthrough in that it finally captures the essence of TAUK’s entrancing live shows. It’s a thoughtfully composed album with captivating hum-along melodies, but this time the band was able to road test the songs, allowing the recorded versions to reflect the group’s adventurous improvisations. The 10-song album spans delicate ethereal textures, highly imaginatively funky drumming, labyrinthine arrangements, and fiery solos—often in the same song.

“We called it ‘Collisions’ because it calls to mind how, when things come together, it is often explosive and leads to something completely different,” bassist Charlie Dolan explains. Alric “A.C.” Carter, keyboard-organ, adds: “It also evokes how we are very different as people, but within the band, we find a way to work together and compliment each other’s musical ideas as an egoless unit.”

On Collisions the band worked with longtime collaborator Grammy-winning producer Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson). Carranza helped the band find the optimum mix of song structure, breathing jam sections, and warm & clear fidelity. Also enhancing the experience of Collisions is the album’s stunning puzzle-like cover art done by Jeff Jordan, graphic artist who previously worked with Mars Volta, among others. The album’s deconstructed and post-modern abstractness perfectly reflect the sonic character of the music. Alric “AC” Carter explains: “In the artwork it’s clear to see there are many parts that build the entire picture. It’s like a song where some parts play supporting roles and other sections instantly grab your attention. However, the most important aspect is the bigger picture.”
TAUK has built a dedicated and loyal fanbase through tireless touring. Festival highlights include Bonnaroo, The Hangout Music Festival, Summer Camp, LOCKN’, Hudson Project, FloydFest, Bear Creek, Art Outside and The Allman Brothers’ Peach Fest. TAUK’s broadly appealing musicality has allowed the band to be direct support to such diverse artists as The Funky Meters, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Papadosio, Lettuce, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, moe., Dopapod, Tim Reynolds & TR3, Toubab Krewe, The Revivalists and many more.

It’s been an astounding journey for the musicians, in terms of four very different personalities conceptually colliding until they merge through inventing a collective musical lexicon.

Stoli, Kinesis Productions, and Gud Company Present:

Featuring special guest headliner on the Bo’s Terrace:

PETE BONES (Red Ant Records / Superfreq / Bedrock Records)

Pete started his musical background after being expelled from school aged 15. With way too much time on his hands, he started a band with 2 close friends. Pete taught himself guitar and drums and they hit the road. After a trip to Ibiza, and the first whisperings of ecstasy and acid house, he decided that electronic music was the future, and traded his drum kit for a pair of technics turntables.After playing numerous illegal parties around the South East of England he gained his first residency in 1990 at the Hand & Spear in Surrey, and soon turned it into one of the biggest nights in the whole of the UK. Pete’s DJ career took off quickly and it wasn’t long before he was guesting all over Europe. In ’92 he launched Ugly Bug records. It was an instant hit, especially with big hitting radio dj’s Pete Tong and Judge Jules. Pete became a resident guest on Kiss 100fm, and his first release as his main recording alias, The Shaker, – ‘Just Lick It’, became the club hit of the year. The remix work came flooding in, from labels such as London, FFRR, Hooj, Ore, Fade, and Perfecto. His remix of Zee’s Dreamtime was essential new tune on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 show, and finally in 96 Pete signed to XL recordings, after a 3 way struggle between A&M, XL, and Maifesto to secure his signature. He went on to release 3 more singles under the Shaker guise – ‘Mooncat’, ‘Strong to Survive’ and ‘Star’ which were all massive club anthems around the world. His djing skills started to attract the talents of promoters as far afield as Capetown and Durban in S.Africa, as well as New York, L.A. and Denver in the USA. For most, this would have been the peak of an outstanding career, but Pete was after something a bit more substantial. Despite the massive chart success, Pete reinvented his sound and launched a new label: Red Ant Records. Over 100 releases later, Red Ant is going from strength to strength. Cutting edge underground dance music. Pete Bones may not take himself too seriously, his music however, is another story. The label has artists such as Alex Costa, The Shaker, The Presslaboys and the Sleepfreaks.Carefully avoiding the restrictions of the obsession with pigeon holing dance music.

Cuz We Love Cuz: A Benefit Concert featuring JJ Grey & Mofro and Friends @ Ponte Vedra Concert Hall

North Florida’s very own soulful southern swamp rock group JJ Grey & Mofro will host a benefit concert “Cuz We Love Cuz: A Benefit Concert Featuring JJ Grey & Mofro and Friends”  at the Ponte Vedra Beach!

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless.

Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until new album Ol’ Gloryhas a studio record captured the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey live performance. “I wanted that crucial lived-in feel,” Grey says of Ol’ Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room.

For devoted listeners, there is something fitting, even affirmative in Grey’s commitment to the land of his North Florida home. The farms and eddying swamps of his youth are as much a part of Grey’s music as the Louisiana swamp-blues tradition, or the singer’s collection of old Stax records. As a boy, Grey was drawn to country-rockers, including Jerry Reed, and to Otis Redding and the other luminaries of Memphis soul; Run-D.M.C., meanwhile, played on repeat in the parking lot of his high school (note the hip-hop inflections on “A Night to Remember”). Merging these traditions, and working with a blue-collar ethic that brooked no bullshit, Grey began touring as Mofro in the late ’90s, with backbeats that crossed Steve Cropper with George Clinton and a lyrical directness that made his debut LP Blackwater (2001) a calling-card among roots-rock aficionados. Soon, he was expanding his tours beyond America and the U.K., playing ever-larger clubs and eventually massive festivals, as his fan base grew from a modest group of loyal initiates into something resembling a national coalition.

Grey’s most treasured albums include Otis Redding’s In Person at the Whisky a Go Go and Jerry Reed’s greatest hits, and the singer once told me that he grew up “wanting to be Jerry Reed but with less of a country, more of a soul thing.” With Ol’ Glory, Grey does his idols proud. It’s a country record where the stories are all part of one great mystery; it’s a blues record with one foot in the church; it’s a Memphis soul record that takes place in the country. In short, Ol’ Glory is that most singular thing, a record by JJ Grey—the north Florida sage and soul bent swamp rocker.

Victor Lemonte Wooten is a unique human being. Born the youngest of five boys, he began learning to play music at the tender age of two. He started performing in nightclubs and theaters as the bassist with the family band at age five, and at age six, was on tour with his brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield. Soon after, he was affectionately known as the 8-year-old Bass Ace, and before graduating high school, he and his brothers had shared the stage with artists such as Stephanie Mills, War, Ramsey Lewis, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Dexter Wansel, and The Temptations. But, this only begins to tell the tale of this Tennessee titan.

Wooten, now a five-time Grammy winner, hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours.

Among other things, he is a loving husband and father of four, a skilled naturalist and teacher, a published author, a magician and acrobat, and has won every major award given to a bass guitarist including being voted Bassist of the Year in Bass Player Magazine’s readers poll three times (the only person to win it more than once.) In 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine voted Victor one of the Top Ten Bassist of ALL TIME.

Wooten’s “Fun & Funk Xplosion Tour” will feature a spectacular lineup including Victor Wooten, comedian/bass player Sinbad and Regi Wooten, Roy “Futureman” Wooten and Bob Franceschini.

The band tours an average of 40 weeks a year coast to coast, selling out venues and spreading like wildfire across the nation. Building a solid and loyal following wherever they go. On June 16th, 2012 TBS headed out to appear for their 3rd time at the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. They just released their highly anticipated 3rd album on June 12, 2012 titled “The Great Escape” produced by Grammy winner Damon Elliot. TBS released their first single off the album titled “One Way” co-written with Tim Myers of One Republic fame on March 27, 2012. “One Way” is currently on the radio and made it onto the Top 40 Billboard Indicator Charts 5 weeks in a row.

Sun-Dried Vibes provide a fresh twist to the reggae/rock genre with their high-energy live performances that crank out infectious sing-a-longs laced with a positive message. SDV will be heard, since their inception in 2010 the group has performed around 275 dates a year.

The album was tracked by Jeff Leonard and Eric Rickert at Ocean Industries Studios (Charleston, SC) and Echo Mountain Recording Studio (Asheville, NC) and was mastered by Chris Gehringer of Sterling Sound (New York, NY).

Sun-Dried Vibes took home back to back awards for South Carolina’s Rock Band of the Year in 2012, 2013, as well as 2016, voted on by the SC Music Awards and were voted Charlotte NC’s Best Local Band 2012 by the Readers of Creative Loafing.

This festival along with a 12 show, headlining tour in the US Virgin Islands was the icing on the cake in 2014.

2015 was the year of opportunity for Sun-Dried Vibes. SDV set out on a national tour that summer highlighted by an appearance at the largest reggae music festival in the world. California Roots Music & Arts Festival will took place May 2015 in Monterey, CA and the group was humbled to share the bill with SOJA, Steel Pulse, Dirty Heads, Chronixx, The Roots and many more. 2015 also brought a new opportunity for SDV as the trio was added to a world class roster at SEG: Sweetwine Entertainment Group based out of Denver, CO.

2016 shaped up to be the biggest and best yet for Sun-Dried Vibes as they kicked off the year with a SOLD OUT show in their hometown of Charlotte, NC on New Years Eve. The group follows up the sellout with a 20 show national tour in 9 states including a stop at a SOLD OUT One Love Cali Reggae Fest in Santa Ana, CA.

Jeremy Anderson (TreeHouse) was featured as the MP3 Leak of the Week by The Pier (www.thepier.org). In 2017, the group experienced their first major line up change and introduced Jono Cheverez to the family as their new full-time drummer.
