    Hollis Brown
    50 Years of Getting “Loaded”

    Hollis Brown hits the road with a special two-set show celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Velvet Underground’s classic album Loaded. After six straight months of touring to promote the release of their new album, Ozone Park, playing tight opening sets for the likes of Robert Randolph and Vintage Trouble, Hollis Brown is ready to stretch out on stage.

    The Queens-based rock band IS bringing their 50 Years of Getting “Loaded” show to Asbury Park. Following a full set of material from their three albums, Hollis Brown will perform the
    Loaded album in its entirety for the first time on tour.

    “When we were starting out, Loaded was an album that showed us how to write songs, and also how to capture a no-frills energy in our sound. It will be the first time we are performing this show in its entirety, and we can’t wait to hit the stages,” said singer Mike Montali.

    Hollis Brown Gets Loaded was born out of a 2013 tribute concert to Lou Reed, where they were first asked to perform the seminal 1970 Velvet Underground album live. Alive Naturalsound Records then convinced the band to commit their track-by-track interpretations to vinyl, which they recorded live over two days in a house in the country, for a limited-edition Record Store Day 2014 release. However, the album soon took on a life of its own, with surprise airplay on tastemaker stations like KEXP Seattle and KUT Austin, prompting the label to issue a full physical and digital release. To this day, Hollis Brown’s versions of tracks like “Oh! Sweet Nuthin'” and “Sweet Jane” continue to organically find their way onto streaming playlists, and remain among their top songs on online music services.

    All tickets from the originally scheduled date will be honored.

    Kendall Street Company

    Kendall Street Company is a jam-alt rock band based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. From late night jam sessions at the University of Virginia to main stages at venues and festivals throughout the country, Kendall Street Company has broken the mold of improvised rock and entered a world of jazz-grass infused psychedelic bliss. The band’s musical style incorporates elements of jam, folk, jazz, funk, and psychedelic rock. They embrace mind-altering riffs as well as soulful and jazzy wit, while remaining true to their folksy songwriting roots.

    “The Space Race” is Kendall Street Company’s first single off their highly anticipated pop-ambient space opera double LP “The Year the Earth Stood Still,” (set to release summer 2021). Recorded in the midst of a pandemic, the record was born as a collective improvisational experiment over a 5 day period in a rural farmhouse studio. With imaginations running wild and sessions lasting through to the wee hours of the morning, the record quickly took on a life of its own as a time capsule of the band’s thoughts, feelings, and creative drive in a year of great uncertainty over their own future, and that of humanity at large.

    Averaging over 100 shows per year since 2013, KSC has performed at festivals such as Lockn’, Roosterwalk, Floydfest, Resonance, and Domefest and has opened for acts such as Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, moe., Papadosio, Umphrey’s McGee, Goose, and Leftover Salmon. All the while, the band has released myriad records, EPs, and singles to national acclaim.

  • Will Hoge

    Will Hoge

    at the Wonder Bar
    More Info

    Event Details

    For two decades, Will Hoge has carried the torch for American rock & roll, carving out his own blue-collar sound rooted in amplified guitars, melodic hooks, southern soul, and rootsy stomp. It’s a sound that nods to the best moments of the past — the punch of Tom Petty’s anthems; the countrified twang of Buck Owens’ singing; the raw, greasy cool of the Rolling Stones — while still pushing forward into new territory, with Hoge’s storytelling and larger-than-life voice leading the charge.

    Trends come and go. Yet Will Hoge remains a mainstay of the Americana landscape, hitting the road year after year, turning new pages of a career whose twists and turns — including Number One hits, a near-death experience, major-label record deals, and hard-won independence — sound like stuff of some long-lost movie script.

    Maybe that’s why Tiny Little Movies, his eleventh album, feels so cinematic. Recorded alongside Hoge’s band of road warriors, the album brims with the same electric energy that fuels his shows. These are songs for highways, hotels, the heartland, and those all-too-brief moments at home, glued together by self-reflective lyrics that find Hoge making peace with life, love, and the long ladder that leads to success.

    “Dealing with anxiety is a bit of a constant for me,” the songwriter admits. “I spent years worried about things falling apart — personally, musically, emotionally, financially, you name it. As I’ve gotten better at my life, there’s a moment of realizing that this is it. It is where it is supposed to be. So I’ve been looking around, embracing the good and the bad, hoping to change what I can, and accepting the things I can’t.”

    featuring Garry Beers of INXS and Toby Rand of Juke Kartel

    AshenMoon

    When they first began writing their debut album, AshenMoon bassist Garry Beers, singer Toby Rand and guitarist Jimmy Khoury unraveled their personal songwriting and began collaborating a “passion project” in Beers’ garage studio. There, in the heat of the San Fernando Valley, they created the recipe and sound of AshenMoon, a fusion of ’70s, new wave and modern rock ‘n’ roll. Produced by Beers (co-produced by Rand), the album is influenced by the electronic grooves of Beers’ work with INXS, hooky riffs inspired by Khoury’s work with Beth Hart, whilst Rand traverses his range emotionally with tales of heartbreak, love and redemption; something uniquely his own. Mixed by Grammy award winner David Reitzas and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Jeff Buckley), the AshenMoon record is majestically anthemic, whilst remaining magnetically intimate.

    “Not since my days with INXS have I felt more connected to music. We made this record from the heart and pay homage to all the great rock bands and artists that have inspired us to devote our lives to music.” – Garry Beers

    Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, Michigan Rattlers play heavy-hearted folk-rock with an aching dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Reed (vocals/upright bass), Christian Wilder (vocals/piano) and Tony Audia (drums) began writing music and performing together in their Northern Michigan high school. They regularly played every bar, cafe and stage in town, developing a musical chemistry informed by the likes of AC/DC, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Seger and more.

    After a few years apart, Reed and Young settled down in Los Angeles, recorded a short demo, and began  laying locally. The demo found its way in the hands of super-producer Johnny K, and they cut the bulk of their first EP at NRG studios in just one day. This self-titled Michigan Rattlers EP attracted glowing reviews from No Depression, Bluegrass Situation, Relix, Glide, Grammy.com and more. Rolling Stone named the band one of their “Ten New Country Artists You Need To Know.” In 2018, following a massive summer tour that included stops at Bonnaroo, Firefly and Electric Forest; the band released their highly anticipated debut full length album, Evergreen, and added pianist Christian Wilder and drummer Tony Audia to their lineup. The Michigan Rattlers are currently in the studio recording their second full length album in between tour dates.
