Changing Wednesday Nights

To everything there is a season…

After a great three year run with Karaoke or/and Open Mic on Wednesday  nights with Raleigh Event DJ, Brad Junell, where we have had many a memorable night and met a number of our future performers for Acoustic Nights at the Roadhouse or Weekend Nights on the Roadhouse Stage, we are bringing Performance Night to a close.

Last date for Pittsboro Roadhouse Open Mic & Karaoke: Wednesday December 30, 2015

We have had very young children, and very senior people and everyone in between. We have had solo performers on guitar, duos, trios and a full-sized band with a drum set, and 5 performers.

Thank you to everyone who has participated, and especially to Brad Junell of Raleigh Event DJ for his steady and welcoming presence, week after week, after week. It’s been about 150 Wednesday Nights! That’s impressive.

Thank you so much everyone!

The BackBeat in Pittsboro – Dec 19

The BackBeat back at the Pittsboro Roadhouse!  ($6 Cover)

BackBeat by Larry Weaver Entertainment

Forming in 2001 to play a one-off gig at the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill, The BackBeat had so much fun we decided to keep it going for a while. “A while” became an ongoing adventure involving over 500 shows in 5 states for over 100,000 people. From the beginning their goal has been to perform the music of the Beatles and other 60s groups with absolute “like the record” accuracy, with exact 3 and 4 part vocals, striving for the level of excitement produced on stage in the 60s! They play the same guitar models which the Beatles used for the true 60s sound.

There have been personnel changes and different periods over the life of the band. Early on there were college oriented gigs with UNC music professor John Covach, their first lead guitarist. This “academic” period segwayed to the crazy WB Yeats days in Chapel Hill, over 70 shows at the popular venue, with lines out the door once a month for 5 years when Jon Heames was in the lead guitar spot. Increasing outdoor civic festivals, town fairs and concerts have been their more recent pattern. Now, with Zsolt David on drums and Jay Manley on lead guitar the band is in it’s prime. They’re having fun, rocking for all takers on what they consider the greatest rock & roll music ever written!

A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Bag of Llamas – Nov 21

No we’re not talking about transporting Llamas in a bag, or a bag of Llama wool, this is a band of seasoned musicians from Durham NC.

They play original and Llama-lized classic and alternative rock. That’s what they say “llama-lized.”

“It’s time-travel rock and roll from the 60s to today! Enjoy Llama-flavored Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, Lifehouse, The Black Keys, Jason Derulo, Melissa Ethridge, Maroon 5 and more!”

About Dean Driver 

I was the shy kid – the one who was too afraid to go up to the counter and ask for a packet of ketchup. I would never have imagined myself even speaking to a large group of people, much less performing original songs in before hundreds of people. But something fundamentally shifted inside of me several years ago. Now, rather suddenly, I find myself with a lot to say about the world, and I’m no longer afraid to say it.

Though I’ve played guitar since my teens, I never really sat down and figured it all out until aound 2008, after our kids were grown and I had a little more space in my life. Now I can finally reconstruct the songs that I’ve always heard playing in my head. It’s a huge thrill for me to have acquired this ability at the ripe old age of 50. This is all wonderfully new to me. When I write songs and play them, I swear I feel like I’m 24.

So my music has a unique flavor. I bring this youthful, never-done-this-before energy to my songs, but I write from the perspective of someone who has been around the block a few times. I’ve raised a family, I’ve seen relationships come and go, I’ve seen parts of the world I never expected to see, and I’m in many ways much more awake than I’ve ever been. I’m actually thankful that music came to me so late in life, because now I have much bigger palette of experience to draw from.

My genre, you ask? I truly have no idea. I’m simply playing what I hear in my head, and each song is as unique as an embryo. I guess I tend to construct them in the styles that I’ve experienced, so you’ll hear some Beatle influences, some Dylan, some Prine, Simon, and even a little classical. Cliff Eberhardt is my singer-songwriter hero, and if I’m guilty of mimicking anyone, it’s him.

I dig distinctive melodies, and I love songs with honest, heartfelt lyrics that engage and surprise, so I focus on those aspects when I’m putting songs together. I’m drawn to songs with big ideas behind them, but that don’t take themselves too seriously. Mostly, I see the inspiration to write a song as a precious gift, and I feel obliged to honor that gift and make the song happen. My hope for each song is that it reaches people, allows them to see things from a different perspective, and maybe makes the world a little less lonely.
