On Wednesday, September 28th two talented singer-songwriters join together at The Hall at MP in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Twobadours tour features David Ryan Harris, best known for playing guitar & singing in Jon Mayer’s band from 2004-2012.
Growing up at a time when Prince, Parliament-Funkadelic, Stevie Wonder and other musicians were stretching the boundaries of popular music, he began to understand that music could not and should not be limited by our often narrow views of what it should be. Harris released his fourth full-length album, Lightyears, last fall, which includes co-writes with Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and Tyler Lyle, with guest appearences by John Mayer, Indie.Arie and Nikka Costa.
Nashville-based troubadour, Gabe Dixon will join DRH on the tour. He’s opened for and toured with the likes of Loggins & Messina, Gavin DeGraw and Delta Rae, as well as held side gigs as the keyboardist and vocalist for Paul McCartney, Alison Krause & Union Station, O.A.R. and Supertramp. Gabe Dixon released his sophomore solo album, Turns To Gold, on April 8th, 2016 on his own Rolling Ball Records. The LP marks Gabe’s first official collection as an independent artist and has been featured in Rolling Stone, The Huffington Post, American Songwriter, Elmore Magazine, All Music, Relix Magazine, Indie Shuffle & more.
On Friday October 21st, a modern day troubadour, bandleader, family man, and singer & songwriter plays the same venue in celebration of his self-titled album featuring the single “Take The Long Way.”
Recorded in Los Angeles in 2014, Pat McGee was influenced by the classic albums of the 1970s that were spun in his childhood home. Channeling the vintage warmth of those recordings, he began writing an album that would have the same timeless quality of singer/songwriter rock from the Laurel Canyon scene of the early 70s.
McGee was lucky enough to have worked with a wide range of talented musicians, including Pat Monahan (Train), John Popper (Blues Traveler), Paul Barrere (Little Feat), Gabe Witcher (Punchbrother). Tony Lucca (vocals), Emily Hearn (vocals), Blue Dog’s Hank Futchand and Bobby Houck (vocals), Colby James (vocals) & Matt Menefee (banjo). He has built lasting relationships with these various talented artists, as they have influenced him throughout his 20 years of touring.
Accompanying Pat McGee Band at The Hall at MP in Brooklyn this October are sibling rockers Jocelyn and Chris Arndt. With powerful vocals and retro-rock guitar, Jocelyn & Chris Arndt’s music has matured into authentic, soulful rock.
Together with their band, Jocelyn and Chris logged more than 100 shows in 2015 including stops at The Sundance Film Festival and Mountain Jam Music Festival, two performances at CMJ, Acme Nashville, The Hard Rock in Pittsburgh and Myrtle Beach, The Middle East in Boston, NY’s Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and Delancey along with television appearances in New York, California, Tennessee, and Virginia.
“Take a listen to Edges – their new album – and you’ll reap the benefits of raw emotion, blues-and-soul inflected power and an energy level you wish some acts on radio today would have”-Huffington Post, A-Sides with Jon Chattman. Edges features guest appearances by G Love and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, with song premieres appearing in Relix Magazine, Paste Magazine, The 405, and Glide Magazine.
