TONIGHT & TOMORROW- boston comes to cortland [Jun. 16th, 2006|01:14 pm]
bluefrogcoffee
pete cassani, liz stahler, and nathan duprey are all
driving way out to cortland, ny to share their music
with you. i strongly suggest that you come and hear
them. you might actually like what you hear! :)
read below for more details...

Friday, June 16th, 8pm- COLLEEN KATTAU & PETE CASSANI-
$5 "Joe Hill would be proud. Singer and organizer at
the same time", Pete Seeger says of Colleen, a
bi-lingual singer songwriter of New Song and Nueva
canción. She performs original alternative acoustic
music in a splendidly energetic mix of poetry and
rhythm. Her voice can be both strong and tender and
has been likened to that of Joni Mitchell, Natalie
Merchant, and Shawn Colvin. Colleen has performed for
diverse audiences at colleges and universities,
women's festivals, environmental festivals, and Latin
American and labor solidarity events.
Pete Cassani cut his musical teeth on the streets of
Boston alongside Mary Lou Lord and Martin Sexton,
playing electric guitar thru a battery-powered
amplifier. His songs meld punk rock with troubadour
street-folk, Bob Dylan with Johnny Rotten. Though his
band, The Peasants, is known for their rip-roaring
garage rock shows, Cassani is a powerful solo artist.
He has captivated audiences from NY to LA, Duluth to
New Orleans and Holland to Germany. He makes you dance
while making you think. Cassani's performances are
filled with humor, sarcasm and some harsh truth but
always seem to leave people feeling better than when
they came, an important skill for a street performer.

Saturday, June 17th, 8pm- LIZ STAHLER w/ NATHAN
DUPREY- $5 (Liz Stahler is a personal favorite of
mine- I highly recommend that you DO NOT MISS THIS
SHOW!!!) It doesn't take long to realize when you go
to see a Liz Stahler show you are in for a whirlwind
of emotions. From her charismatic stage presence and
comical anecdotes to the heartbreaking lyrics of lost
self, you are not sure whether to laugh, cry or both
all at once. Very quickly, you know she was meant to
do this and this is exactly where she wants to be.
Nathan's site is under construction- but from what I
hear- he is fabulous too!!!

JAKE LEAR @ THE BLUE FROG COFFEEHOUSE [May. 26th, 2006|09:13 pm]
bluefrogcoffee
in upper case just in case you couldn't hear me...

Saturday, May 27th, 8pm- JAKE LEAR- $3 (- $5 the more the better- support indie music!)

This is Jake's first time joining us at The Blue Frog Coffeehouse, bringing his original brand of blues to our glass backdropped stage. Inspired by Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray
Vaughan, Buddy Guy and Bob Dylan, Jake Lear's own style has a distince sound that is fast and furious with unparallel energy and breath- taking heart andsoul as he slams out, shuffles, stomps instrumentals and original songs.

EMBER SWIFT- Tuesday, May 16th, 7pm- TODAY!!! [May. 15th, 2006|11:25 pm]
bluefrogcoffee
Tuesday, May 16th, 7pm- Ember Swift- $10

Toronto's Ember Swift is both an individual
singer-songwriter and a dynamic trio. Alongside of
Ember's elastic jazz vocals and lush acoustic guitar
are layers of electric violin, bass guitar, drums,
percussion and vocal harmonies. Most notably, Lyndell
Montgomery, with infectious charisma and musicianship
akin to wizardy, has been performing with Ember Swift
for years. Ember Swift and her band speak their minds
and their truths boldly and without fear from stages
across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Their songs
shed light on issues such as globalization, consumer
awareness, food politics, disengaging from capitalist
greed, feminism, queer politics, racism and
environmentalism. All seven of their independently
released albums on their independent record label
"Few'll Ignite Sound" weave politics and poetics in
and out of daring musical arrangements. They are proud
independent artists, by identity not default.

finally... the rest of May @ The Blue Frog Coffeehouse [May. 12th, 2006|12:43 pm]
bluefrogcoffee
Thursday, May 18th, 7-10pm- OPEN MIC- free-
Bring yer instruments, bring yer voice, & bring yer
friends! One drink/dessert minimum purchase please...

Friday, May 19th, 8pm- Juliet Lloyd- $5
And then theres the voice. Juliets voice seemingly
launched a thousand adjectives during the promotion of
All Dressed Up, everything from sultry and superb,
to rich and ethereal. The one thing everyone can
agree on, however, is that the girl has soul. In an
era in which the word soul is overused to the point
of describing practically every singer/songwriter out
there, Juliets particular brand of soul cant help
but stand out in an old school, blue-eyed way that can
move you from uncontrollable dancing to the brink of
tears within a moment (Rochester Insider). Whether
shes performing an intimate solo set with just her
voice and piano, or laying it down with the rest of
the band, hearing her live is an unforgettable
experience.

Saturday, May 20th, 8pm- Steve Morgan- $3
With an incredible range, both vocally and
stylistically, Steve Morgan has been compared to the
likes of Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, and Stevie
Wonder, with additioinal influences of Blues, Funk,
and Rock. Although such comparisons do capture the
essence of Steve's influences, he still exudes a
distinctly unique style of his own. As an extremely
talented vocalist and songwriter, he continues to
exhibit the quality of a musician that only burns
brighter with time.

Frog Coffeehouse!

more music in May @ The Blue Frog Coffeehouse [May. 6th, 2006|06:25 pm]
bluefrogcoffee
Friday, May 12th, 8pm- Lis Harvey- $5
So writes THE WASHINGTON POST about Lis Harvey, whose
romance with the road landed her in RIPLEY'S BELIEVE
IT OR NOT at age 25. That year, the New England native
played 52 concerts in all 50 US states in 60 days -
and won the first GUINNESS WORLD RECORD(tm) for
extreme touring. "The trip was as much a testament to
her dedication as it was a publicity stunt," writes
THE ONION AV CLUB. "Hard- touring folk-popper Lis
Harvey is capable of inspiring smiles even when
singing about heartbreak or calamity. Her warm,
inviting voice... can hold a room captive." Hope, wit
and open-road frankness color Harvey's award-wining
songs, and make her live performances "worth [every]
effort." (DIRTY LINEN) With her voice and finger-style
guitar, Harvey draws "spring stream songs" (DL) from
classical roots. The result is rather like a jazzy,
folk cocktail - on the rocks.

Saturday, May 13th, 8pm- Chris Merkley- $3
Chris Merkley's blend of American roots music is built
on a foundation of the Blues, and music from throught
the past century that it has inspired. As a child,
Merkley grew up listening to his parents' collection
of screatch-up vinyl records of 1950's and 60's Folk
music. Further investigation of the collection led to
his discovery of Rock and Roll, which he then traced
back to the Blues artists who inspired it all.

Sunday, May 14th, 10am- Mother's Day Jazz Brunch,
featuring Stevie D.- $10
Gimme! coffee, catered brunch by M & D Deli, with live
jazz music featuring Cortland's favorite- Stevie D.
and a crew of stellar musicians to celebrate Mother's
Day on Main Street in Cortland!

Tuesday, May 16th, 7pm- Ember Swift- $10

Friday, May 5th, 8pm- Edie Carey- $10
With her warm, graceful voice and her knack for cutting "into a subject...with a diamond-edged blade**," Edie Carey grabs hold of her audiences and doesn't let go until she steps off the stage. While her songs are what first draw listeners in, it's what she says in between that keeps them coming back. Carey's wry and self-mocking humor, coupled with her ability to tell a great story, makes audiences feel as though they have just spent the evening with a very close friend. Given the triple threat of her magnetic stage presence, heart-grabbing songs, and almost unearthly voice, it's no wonder that the word about Carey is traveling fast.
