The Dagmar Bumpers

Welcome The Dagmar Bumpers! The Dagmar Bumpers is a six-piece band playing swanky 50’s Era Rock & Boogie Woogie.

They performed in April 2015 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.

Hand-picked sets of lesser-known songs representing the best and coolest sounds of the time. With saxaphone, standup bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals, they play at the edge where Swing became Rock, at the very start of Rock & Roll, a mean Boogie Woogie. Our audiences find themselves up on their feet, celebrating the excitement of the time when swing became Rock ‘n Roll.

 

Check out more of their music on their Dagmar Bumpers YouTube Channel.

The Familiars, Circle City & Uniontown – Bands from Pittsboro

Tracy LynnThe Familiars, Circle City and Uniontown will be performing in sequence on Saturday January 3rd 2015.

It is a night of “Homespun Swooning, Rock Ballads, and Swamp Anthems Galore” !!!

Tracy Lynn will be celebrating her recent graduation from UNC-CH and we are expecting a crowd.

All bands are homegrown from right here in Pittsboro and write all of their own material with the exception of a few cover tunes.

The Familiars with Elizabeth Haddix and Eddie Holm

The Familiars start out at 7pm in the Lounge for some laid back original tunes that feature songwriters Elizabeth Haddix and Eddie Holm. Elizabeth is formerly of The Bad Mothers, a Pittsboro favorite. Eddie currently plays with Uniontown, who takes the stage at 9pm. This duo pumps out a unique blend of AppaDeltaJazzBursts with wandering melodies about social justice and of course, life.

Circle City with Tracy Lynn, Fred Royal, Shannon Blackwell and Dave Smith

At 8pm, Circle City showcases songwriters Tracy Lynn on vocals and guitar, Fred Royal on drums and vocals, Shannon Blackwell on bass, and Dave Smith on guitar and vocals. The fresh and new band configuration elevates the solid songwriting and clever hooks with tasteful dynamics that aren’t too loud and definitely not wimpy. Lynn previously fronted Pittsboro darlings The Bad Mothers with life partner, Royal, who bangs it out with Uniontown. Blackwell has a laundry list of Chapel Hill based bands including HWYL, Tim Stambaugh, Tony Sullivan and His Burning Sinsations and others. Pittsboro native, Dave Smith, is regarded as one of the area’s finest guitarists by his peers and rotates between the gypsy jazz brilliance of the Onyx Club Boys and numerous side projects.

Uniontown

Uniontown has been writing and performing original swamp anthems since 2010. Chris Long’s true grit storytelling, Ed Holm and Fred Royal’s driving rhythms and great harmonies put Uniontown’s soiled blue collar sound a cut above your average working band sound. Show starts at 9pm.

Spencer Scholes Band at the Roadhouse!

Friday August 1, 2014 at 8:00 on the Pittsboro Roadhouse Stage The talented singer / songwriter Spencer Scholes takes to the Pittsboro Roadhouse Stage with three master musicians for an awesome evening of original songs and a few covers! We talked with Spencer and here’s what he had to say. “These musicians are all top level players. I’m fortunate that they play with me, that they like my music, and how we sound together, so they’re willing to come out and play.”

Neat music recording on video for Soldier On.

Pete Joyner on Drums

Pete Joyner is an amazing drummer and has taught  lot of the best drummers in the area. He’s been drumming thirty years or more. He’s toured with Motown acts and has toured nationally. He runs the Pete Joyner quintet a Jazz ensemble and plays with a lot of other groups. A top level player.”

Keith Green on Bass

“Keith Green is the bass player. He’s toured nationally for over ten years as part of a band that had signed with a label. When I asked him if he wanted to play this gig, he’d just visited a few days earlier, and wrote back, “This is such an awesome venue, I really want to play here!” 

Gregory Blaine on Percussion

“Gregory Blaine… he’s awesome. He’s sat in with me before. Last month. We had a gig in Hillsborough. We were playing, one of the guys knew Gregory, and saw him next door, and invited him over. Gregory sat and listened during the first set, and during the break he asked if he could bring in some percussion and play. We all immediately locked in and got along musicially, it worked really well. His feeling for it was just spot on. That’s pretty high level musicianship for someone to fit in when I don’t play standard fare. He was able to hang with it and accent it. He was there with it the whole time. That’s the thing with top musicians, they know how to show their strength and back off, they know how to serve the song and not have it be all about them.”

Spencer Scholes on Guitar (Vocals and Songwriter)

“I toured for past two years. Did nothing but music. All the way to west coast and back. Whenever I get booked with a band, all my songs are charted out, so I reach out to players in the area. Often it works really great. People I’ve never met show up to a gig and play.
I learned that I write in different key signatures, outside of what bluegrass does, and different time signatures, and progressions, not 1, 4 5 over and over like pop country and blues, so my songs are not as easy to jump in and play with, they’re not the normal fare.
In 2010 when recording with bands, really good rhythm team of basses and a drummer, they were baffled. I wrote the way it felt naturally it was confusing because it was not the normal fare.
So I began applying what I was learning in music theory to my songs, and started to learn what it is I have going on. It is challenging getting gigs of course, because when you don’t fit in an existing category no one knows where you fit.”
On Friday August 1, Spencer Scholes and his band will play 2 hours of music, that includes these songs which you can listen to here:
or
Firefly
Without You
Dragonfly
Audios – a musical goodbye
Riddle
Tentative

Go ahead and like Spencer Scholes on Facebook.
