Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making-machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.– The Boston Herald

Their 14th studio album finds the Indigo Girls operating as powerfully as at any time in their career, on a set of uncommonly strong songs performed with the kind of typically understated Nashville polish that affords their signature harmonies the full spotlight.
– The Independent (UK)

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s.
After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous album to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” They were overnight folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves: they’ve since released 14 albums (3 platinum and 3 gold), received six Grammy nominations and have won one. Indigo Girls have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk.  Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans. With their latest release, Beauty Queen Sister, released on IG Recordings distributed by Vanguard Records, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

In 2015 Indigo Girls released their 16th studio album, One Lost Day, produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin and mixed by Brian Joseph.Amythyst Kiah

A professed Southern Gothic songster based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. A graduate of East Tennessee State University, she studied old time music and music performance, and it proved to be a pivotal moment in her life as she transformed from a long-time closet musician into a well-rounded, captivating performer.

Accoutered interchangeably with banjo, acoustic guitar, or a full band (Her Chest of Glass), Amythyst’s toolbox is augmented by her scholarship of African-American roots music. Her eclectic influences span decades, drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by strong R&B and country music vocalists from the ’50s-’70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) and influenced by contemporary artists with powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Megan Jean and the KFB, Janelle Monae).

Recent tours in Scotland and the U.K. have seen Amythyst performing for audiences at the Americana Music Association UK Showcase, the Southern Fried Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and SummerTyne Americana Festival. She is a crowd favorite at Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion in the U.S., has performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, and the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival.

Provocative and coolly fierce, Amythyst Kiah’s ability to cross the boundaries of blues and old-time through reinterpretation is groundbreaking and simply unforgettable.

The Bobby Broom Organi-Sation opening for Steely Dan @ Ravinia

The Bobby Broom Organi-Sation opening for Steely Dan @ Ravinia
Event on 2015-07-25 20:00:00
The Bobby Broom Organi-Sation will open for Steely Dan at the 2015 Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois on July 24th and 25th, at 8:00p. Last summer the Organi-Sation opened for the Dan on their Jamalot Tour in 54 cities across North America. One of the major markets not on the tour last year was Chicagoland.

“I’m at home enjoying a really great summer so far,” said Broom. “Lots of time spent with my family and in deep preparation for upcoming events with the Organi-Sation… But it got even better when I received the call to open for the Dan again for their two Chicago-area shows at Ravinia!”

It has been another good year for Broom. He received his fourth straight honor in June when he was named to the DownBeat Critics Poll as one of the top twenty Jazz guitarists in the world, and his Origin Records album with his other group, The Bobby Broom Trio, “My Shining Hour,” was ranked as the #38 Jazz album in the world by JazzWeek in January. The trio was also featured in an web video and radio special: Steve Rashid presents WDCB Live.

The Organi-Sation, a guitar-organ-drum trio, featuring Broom on guitar, Ben Paterson on the Hammond B-3 and Kobie Watkins on drums, was organized in 2014 by Broom to revive the format that Wild Bill Davis launched in the 1950s and shaped in the tradition of Jimmy Smith with Wes Montgomery (or Kenny Burrell), George Benson with Dr. Lonnie Smith and Pat Martino with Don Patterson, their sound found its way into the popular consciousness of the 1960s.

Ravinia Festival tickets are on sale, and while reserved tickets for both dates are sold out, there is lawn seating for both the 24th show and the 25th show. Arrive EARLY, get a great spot, something to eat and drink, and enjoy the Bobby Broom Organi-Sation’s pre-show show!

Johnnie Walker RV Celebrates 52 Years In Las Vegas With The Grand Opening Of The “Camping Lodge”


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

April 8, 2015, marked a momentous occasion for family owned and operated, Johnnie Walker RV (JWRV), as they celebrated 52 years of business in Southern Nevada, with the opening of a new flagship “Camping Lodge,” as it has been dubbed, in the same location where the original building once stood.

Days prior, employees of the Las Vegas based company and its founder and namesake, John L. Johnnie Walker, stood witness to the demolition of the original building assembled by his father and him in 1963. Emotions ran high for employees, family and friends, as they watched Johnnie, his son and JWRV President, John West Walker, and grandson and Marketing Director, Michael Walker, take part in the historic demolition event. Giving the momentous occasion a visual to remember, Johnnie made the first blow to the original building with the backhoe, kicking off a month of celebratory festivities and sales events.

With the demolition of our original sales building, the grand opening celebration with our friends and family, and the upcoming RV Extravaganza Sale, it has been a month of transformation and celebration for us, said Michael Walker. We are unbelievably proud of our history and honored by the support the Las Vegas community has given to us throughout the years.

As of April 8, the new state-of-the-art Camping Lodge is operational and capable of serving local and out-of-state RV enthusiasts in every aspect of RV sales, service & repair, and parts.

Alabama Furniture Begins Countdown to Grand Opening for New Location

Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 17, 2015

Alabama Furniture is excited to announce that their second location will be opening on March 28. The grand opening celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Alabama Furniture also has some other surprising information to share with the community. With 12 months left on the lease, they have now begun the countdown for the relocation of the Heights store at 2200 Yale St.

Unfortunately, Alabama Furniture is unsure if they will be able to justify the rent increase on the building. Because of the deep-rooted history of the location, Alabama Furniture is reluctant to leave. The building has been family-owned since the 1940s and Alabama Furniture has rented it for the past 19 years. The property was recently offered and sold to an investment group that is buying a huge portion of the Heights for commercial development.

Those who have created a mainstay in the Heights for many years know how the area is changing and in a big way. Small businesses are not thriving like they used to, and the survival of the American Dream is fading off into the distance. Real estate has changed dramatically over the years while mom-and-pop businesses have remained the focus of the community. Now, with a new year and a new drive in the Heights, corporate ownership is the new focus. Much of the eclectic, one-of-a-kind atmosphere of the area will not be prominent as it has been for many years.

This, however, does not mean bad news for Alabama Furniture. The store has been serving Houston since 1991 and does not plan to change anytime soon. They would like to find and keep another location in the Heights area, but arent sure where that hidden gem is yet.

The new location at 14520 #98 Memorial Drive, Houston, TX 77079 brings the character and atmosphere of the Heights location, but with a completely new and elegant flair that fits right into the Memorial community. It is worth the drive to experience the small businesses and shopping that Memorial has to offer.
