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

Live Radio Show Recording Thursday Nights at the Roadhouse

When Greg Lewis and Maria Parker Lewis took the challenge and stepped up to bring a community restaurant and event space back where the General Store Cafe once stood, we were all hopeful that this would mean many very good things for Pittsboro, Chatham County and the Triangle Area.

But who would have predicted that we would be the site for a new – likely never done before – Americana Radio Show – recording live-to-disc, with the internationally touring Americana recording artist Chapel Hill’s own TOKYO ROSENTHAL!

With five CDs to his credit, and top ten placing songs on international Americana lists, awards and honors, this singer songwriter impressed us all the first time he performed on the Roadhouse stage.
