EVERY SUNDAY    SUNDAY JAZZ BRUNCH WORKSHOP    NOON 'TIL 4PM

Our Sunday Jazz Brunch Workshop is a magical, musical phenomenon that everyone should experience. The host trio, featuring the notable talents of pianist & vocalist Greg Burgess, bassist Bill Stetz, and drummer Tom James, welcomes musicians of all kinds to join in the musical adventure. Live and inspirational, you'll watch, listen and smile as songs take shape and evolve in an unrehearsed performance ... a real workshop to hone skills and express musical vision. Many guest musicians & vocalists are always on-hand to "sit in" as soloists or to be called upon to create a whole new trio, quartet or larger ensemble, too. It's a ritual that you'll want to be part of every Sunday! Because of the popularity of our Sunday Brunch (served from 9AM-2PM), reservations are strongly encouraged.

Thursday, April 25    Scott Pemberton      8-11PM

Scott Pemberton’s sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland: freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The best way to categorize his music is with the moniker “Timber Rock.” Scott naturally applies his own lens/stamp to the sounds of the Pacific North West, the region he has always called home. The deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues roots and the west coast funk.  It’s all there, and often all in the same song. Listeners are finding this honest, original and to-the-point music refreshing and fun. The mastery of his guitar playing combined with the fun recklessness of his songwriting show that the rules of songwriting and playing the guitar no longer exist for him. Scott plays with the uninhibited joy and intensity of someone who recognizes that every time we make music is an honor and a gift. The response to Scott’s music has made him an emerging force on the festival circuit, placed him at #1 in Portland’s pop charts, #4 on Billboards “Tastmakers” chart and has generated notice from the press: “The Bruce Lee of Rock and Roll” (Tahoe on Stage), “A modern day Jimi Hendrix” (Chico Enterprise), “It's not every day we get to see a real, live guitar god in action.” (Fly Magazine), and “A wildly creative virtuoso.” (Jambase.com).
   
Saturday, April 27    Bjorn Jacobsen & Francois Byers      8-11PM

The duo, consisting of Bjorn Jacobsen on guitar & vocals and Francois Byers on keyboards, made it's way into the North Carolina scene after the two met in a local bar while performing the same night. Needless to say, the two saw a potential that they were longing to find in many other previous cities and bands. Catch them touring the east coast or around their present home town, Winston Salem, NC. Their influences include Jerry Garcia and David Grisman, Ween, Patrick Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, Trampled by Turtles, The Cambiata, Cabinet, Modest Mouse, and Jimi Hendrix, to name only a few. If you'd like, you could call their music Delta-Gypsy-Grass and Theatrical-Dark-Folk.
   
Wednesday, May 1     The Doug McMinn Quartet      7-10PM

Every Wednesday evening we offer up free, live jazz while you dine and drink with us here at the Bullfrog. From solo pianists to unique duos & trios to hot quartets, we've always got something on Wednesday nights to tickle your musical tastebuds while you relax with friends, grab a bite, or enjoy a beer or three.
   
Friday, May 3     Keith Kenny      8-11PM

If the audience at a Keith Kenny show were to close their eyes for the performance they would swear that there was a full band on stage. The audience, however, is too busy dancing to the one-man acts layered guitar riffs, foot stomping percussion, and emotionally charged lyrics to even think about looking away. The New Jersey native is able to emulate the sound of a full rock band with his percussive fingerstyle approach to the acoustic guitar and an array of effects pedals. Kenny even customized a vintage red suitcase to use as a kick drum which has appeared with him on stage for nearly a decade of live performances. His debut appearances at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park paved the way for Kenny’s developing one-man band show and led him into the national touring circuit and beyond. During his most recent “Big Red Suitcase Tour” Kenny performed in over 50 U.S. cities from coast to coast and was invited to headline a series of benefit concerts in SE Asia. In recent years he has shared the stage with the likes of Keller Williams, Leon Russell, John Hammond Jr., New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Zen Tricksters and John Kadlecik (Further & Dark Star Orchestra). On his latest studio release “And the Light Came Blaring In…” Kenny captures the essence of his live solo show, with all the guitars, vocals, and foot stomping performed simultaneously. While he has used a band for several previous releases, on this record Kenny relies more on his lone power of compositional grit than his usual fret board grandeur. With an influential voice that lies somewhere between Neil Young and Ben Bridwell, Kenny delivers clear and concise visions of dynamic musical deliverance. Combining a deep dive into tone, originality and believability, he ushers the listener into his brand new living room of roots riddled rock and roll. Never going for the standard attack, he flies far from the 12-bar blues, three-chord rock and Americana stereotype to land some place between a rock and a new place. The album illustrates a highly skilled writer who utilizes the same down-home approach in his music as he does with his day-to-day interactions with others. It’s a combination that will continue to see Kenny reach exciting new levels as he helps future fans “see the light” of his musical message.
   
Saturday, May 4     Chris Rattie & The New Rebels      9PM-MID

Rising Americana/Roots Rock artist Chris Rattie and his band, The New Rebels, have announced that their sophomore album ‘Porch’ will be released September 15. Critics have described Chris’ debut record as “...full of idiosyncratic melodies and catchy, unexpected hooks” and have drawn comparisons of his sound with Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, Dire Straits, and White Album era Beatles. His latest album builds on the first album with Chris finding clarity in his themes and assuredness in his musical arrangements. This new collection of songs on 'Porch' illuminates the process of finding one's self, finding one's place, and finding love. ‘Porch,’ recorded in an isolated studio in the hills of Central Pennsylvania, was produced and engineered by Chris with his long time collaborators Forrest Schwartz and Jason “Junior” Tutwiler. ‘Porch’ falls into the Americana/Roots Rock genre with a healthy dose of “Songwriter’s songs” and well as early 70’s rock.

Wednesday, May 8     JetSet      7-10PM

Jetset is a mostly-acoustic jazz ensemble inspired by (but not limited to) the French Acoustic Jazz style started by Django Reinhardt. Typically known as "Gypsy Jazz," the music is light, bouncy, and perfect for weddings, bar mitzvahs, dinners, brunches, office and garden parties, or just drinks around a campfire with friends. Jetset won't transform your next event into a Spring night in Paris, but they'll get it a little closer.. Every Wednesday evening we offer up free, live jazz while you dine and drink with us here at the Bullfrog. From solo pianists to unique duos & trios to hot quartets, we've always got something on Wednesday nights to tickle your musical tastebuds while you relax with friends, grab a bite, or enjoy a beer or three.

Saturday, May 25     Andy Mowatt's Frequency Movement      9PM-MID

"Consistently stellar" (Price, PA Musician Mag), "Andy Mowatt's Steely Jam" is a funk-driven powerhouse from Pennsylvania, led by guitarist Andy Mowatt, "an absolute musical genius" (Devoy, Tellus 360) and "jazz-rock flamethrower on guitar" (Campbell, Gigspots). A fusion of New Orleans and Central PA, Mowatt's "bright arrangements keep things sounding fresh" (PA Musician) and "inspire you to expand your mind and think outside the confines of traditional jazz, soul and funk!" (Robert, Positive Music Reviews). "Confident, to-the-point, and elegant" (Rocha, The Flinging Times), Andy and his group entertain and impress crowds with unique originals and modern twists on classic hits, "and yet, through many influences, each tune retains a sound that is distinctly Mowatt's" (O'Brien, Fly Magazine).
