Nov 24 Monday Ticket Giveaway- Soul Excitement

From church choir to the face of soul and funk revitalization, Sharon Jones’ retro sound is pure soul that seduces the audience to let go of their inhibitions.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have built a growing reputation as the front runners of old-school soul and funk.

Show up for the music, but stay for the stage show. Sharon’s youthful energy and occasional dancing frenzies exude passion while the horn section grooves.

Think the Dap-Kings look or sound familiar?  That’s because some of the members backed up Amy Winehouse on her album “Back to Black”, check them out in her video “Rehab.”

Come to the Barrymore December 3 prepared to dance!  Get two tickets for the funk filled evening by telling us what your favorite funk/soul song to listen to in a recession is. Comment on this blog with your entry to have a chance to win a FREE pair of tickets to the Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings show.

Answers will be judged by the staff at True Endeavors- the winner will be announced Tuesday (November 25) at 6pm.

Hot Women Keep Wisconsin Warm

hotelcafe

Friday November 7  9:00pm (doors at 8:00)

High Noon Saloon 18+ show

“One bus, one band and a bunch of friends on the road.”

Hotel Cafe Tour, named after the Los Angeles coffee shop they all first met, is built on the promise of “No cookie cutter corporate American Idols, just real music, written by real artists, surrounded by real friends, who actually have a story to tell.” Instead of a competition between the up-and-coming indie artists, they share the stage in this one memorable night.

Twenty-one bucks gets you a night of 5 talented women singer songwriters who vocalize the feel-good-anthem for all women of the world.

Rachel Yamagata’s mood altering whispers serenade you to feel her vulnerability.

Meiko goes where no woman ever willingly choses to go, “openly proclaiming the sweetest secrets of her own beautiful heartbreak” (last.fm).

Thao Nguyen showcases a pop sound with roots in blues and indie-folk.

Jaymay’s layered and emotionally balanced songs will surely play your heartstrings.

And last but not least British soul singer Alice Russell’s soulful voice is paired with self assurance and sass.

So come relax for the night, and let the women of the Hotel Cafe Tour sing your new favorite song.

.

In this case good music also equals a good cause..

While the artists of Hotel Cafe warm your soul you’ll be helping keep Wisconsin warm. One dollar of each ticket sold will go to the Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund, which is a local non-profit dedicated to keeping the heat and power on for thousands of families in crisis. There will also be a raffle at the venue where you could win a variety of shiny fabulous prizes.

Lucinda Williams sings beautifully about love lost and love found. Her new album, Lost Highway, proves to be more “darker, leaner, rawer, sexier, sadder, more twisted through its depths of desire and obsession.”-Salon.com
