    The Reflectors

    9pm - $5 Entry

    The Reflectors is a Rhythm and Blues group featuring horns and B-3 organ sounds of the 1950’s on.  We love playing rare older R&B tunes–tunes responsible for the influences on Rock & Roll legends.  Comprised of local professional musicians, Barry Po Hanna, Buddy Honeycutt, Matt Coker, Clint Mullican, and Chuck Mullican, the group is a powerful combination of tight sounds and grooves.

    5J Barrow

    9pm - $5 Entry

    Inspiration seeped through the windows of apartment 5J on Barrow Street looking out over the Hudson River in NYC’s Greenwich Village, where singer-songwriters and Broadway performers, Eryn Murman and Jason Hite, soaked up the energy and passion of musicians, painters, poets and writers who created the Village vibe. Together, they paid tribute to those creative spirits and named their band 5j Barrow, writing music and lyrics with a unique folk/rock sound, touring as a duo, and often picking up Drew Jones on bass and Gerard Canonico on drums. The band has inspired audiences with soulful music, evocative imagery, and lyrics that touch the heart, from the historic Apollo Theater to the open air of Washington Square Park, from the streets of New Orleans to the Rocky Mountains, from California wine country to New England forests.

    Old Sap

    9pm - $5 Entry

    Old Sap is at least a bearded man with a banjo. At most, he’s an old rocking chair creaking on a summer porch, the voice of a pine tree while​ ​the surrounding Maples lose their rusty leaves. Fusing Folk, Celtic Traditional, Americana, Old Time Blues, and drawing influence from contemporary songwriters such as The Avett Brothers, Bon Iver, Feist, and Tom Waits, Old Sap’s songs tell stories of loss, of finding joy in adventure and uncertainty, of learning to bear life’s ugliness with grace, of bowing humbly to the mystery at the center of all things, singing praise to our shared existence on this planet.
