Leah Calvert with Marlon Patton (Music at ESP)

to Nov 10

Leah Calvert with Marlon Patton (Music at ESP)

  • Elliott Street Deli & Pub (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Leah Calvert is many things, among them a singer-songwriter and in- demand Atlanta-area fiddler and vocalist. Over the years, she has shared the stage with award-winning artists including Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Kristian Bush (Sugarland) and renowned songwriter Radney Foster. In addition to her work as a solo artist, she is a member of Atlanta acts The Dappled Grays and John Driskell Hopkins Band (Grammy winner and founding/current member of Zac Brown Band).

Calvert’s work with The Dappled Grays has spanned over a decade, during which time the group has found an audience in the United States and beyond. In 2012, they penned music for and appeared in Clint Eastwood’s film Trouble with the Curve, and their album Doin’ My Job received critical acclaim and heavy rotation worldwide, charting on both Sirius and XM.

With her new record Satellite, Calvert moves into uncharted territory, articulating a sound that is wholly her own. Though the compositions and vocal stylings offer a humble nod to her acoustic bluegrass roots, the record is musically a departure from this sound. With co-producers Marlon Patton and Rick Lollar (of Atlanta rock outfit Weisshund) providing a refined rock backdrop, Calvert deftly maneuvers through forms and styles ranging from traditional ballads to blues.

With Satellite, Calvert launches the listener directly into space; the record soars, it orbits, transmitting complex information in a palatable form. Several themes emerge: the fear and alienation that exists within our current political climate, emotional detachment from reality, and keeping safe the things which are most precious to a person -- which for Calvert include her young daughter. “Having a child,” she says, “augments the weight of the world on your heart.” In the liner notes, she includes several lines from environmental activist Wendell Berry's "How to Be a Poet," lines which ultimately became the inspiration for the record. In the poem, Berry urges readers to “Live / a three-dimensioned life; / stay away from screens. / Stay away from anything / that obscures the place it is in.” Many of the songs on Satellite read like poems, demonstrating both a clarity of thought and an urgency which demands that the listener be present in this three-dimensioned life.

Born and raised in Georgia, Marlon Patton is an Atlanta-based drummer and music producer/engineer. Hailing from a long line of drummers dating back to his grandfather, Phil Patton who played in the Chicago big band circuit, Marlon keeps his schedule interesting and packed full of all types of music.  He is the first call for so many musicians not just because of his impeccable time, but because of the incredible musicality of what he delivers. He plays within a huge dynamic range, making him the perfect match for quiet piano jazz performances to hard- hitting rock gigs. He can play with everything from precision to reckless abandon and make it truly his own. He currently is a member of Kenosha KidWeisshundNelson PattonATL CollectiveThe Trey Wright Trio and The Mace Hibbard Quintet.

He has toured, performed and/or recorded with Jim White, Larkin Poe, Delta Moon, Lera Lynn, Liv Warfield, Lonnie Holley, Col. Bruce Hampton, Takana Miyamoto, John Patitucci, Lew Soloff, Bobby Shew, Rufus Reid, Marcus Printup, Kevin Bales, Wycliffe Gordon, TOKU and Russel Gunn.  He has recorded for labels such as Sony, Universal, RH Music, Yep Roc, Ropeadope plus many more independent releases.  His drumming has been in soundtracks on Adult Swim, ABC, and HBO. 

In the studio, Marlon has carved a name for himself in the Atlanta scene recording, mixing, and producing.  Some recent projects he's worked on are Jim White's Where It Hits You, Larkin Poe's Thick As Thieves, Daniel Clay's 10,000 Things, Kenosha Kid's Fahrenheit 451, ILL's Gotten Gains, and Blair Dunlop/Larkin Poe's Killing Time. 

Marlon plays C&C custom drums (http://www.candccustomdrums.com/).

Dave Ellington Organ Duo

Dave Ellington Organ Duo

Growing up playing music, David Ellington studied the traditional classical fare that kids typically learn. But as adolescence hit and FM radio came into its own, David became attracted to all these other styles of music that he heard on the radio in the late 60’s/early 70’s - and everything changed. Throughout his teenage years, he played in garage bands and with friends, in school, and rocking’ church musicals; always trying to learn more of the music that he heard all around him. After graduating high school, he left his home town in Connecticut and moved to Boston. There he attended Berklee College of Music in the early 80’s, before moving to New Orleans in 1983.
Immersed in the extraordinary music scene in New Orleans, David worked and recorded with dozens of artists, including: ‘Walter Wolfman Washington’ - CD ‘Out of the Dark', The Wild Magnolias - CD ‘Life is a Carnival', Leigh ‘Lil’ Queen’ Harris - CD ‘Roy-G-Biv’, Troi Bechet - CD ‘Vo-Du Bleu’, Josh Paxton/Dave Ellington Trio, Los Vecinos, Rick Trolsen, the late greats; 
Marva Wright and Tommy RIdgely, among many others. David also created the group ‘Chevere’; a fiery afro-cuban jazz group. The CD recording by Chevere entitled, ‘Baila Mi Ritmo”, was chosen by Times Picayune music critic Keith Spera as not of the ‘Top 20 recordings of 2001. ‘Chevere’ played the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival every year and always received a top tier ‘4 umbrella’ rating for their live performances at the Fest. David also had the good fortune to study with Ellis Marsalis while attending the 
University of New Orleans in the mid 90’s.

Since moving to Atlanta in 2005, David has been busy focusing on the Hammond organ with the ‘David Ellington Organ Trio’ and with numerous established Atlanta groups and leaders. Some are: ’The Dan Baraszu & David Ellington Group’ - CD ‘Organ Trio’, ‘The Rick Lollar Band’ - CD ‘Soulful Hang’, Will Scruggs’s “CC Booker 3rd” - CD ’CC Booker 3rd’, Dan Baraszu’s ‘Planet Zu’ - CD ‘In the Light of Day’, ‘The Karen Greene Quartet’ - CD in the works!, ’The Dan Coy Group’, The ‘Dave & Dave Duo’ w/David Freeman, ’Scott Glazer’s Mojo Dojo’, ‘The Yellow King’, Ken Gregory’s ‘Solid State’, ‘Kenyon Carter Group’ - and also accompanying jazz singers; Kayla Taylor, Laura Coyle, Gwen Hughes, and Karin Williams. 

Although his focus is on Hammond B3 Organ, David also performs an acoustic piano, as well as some very select vintage and modern keyboard gear: Vintage Vibe Electric Piano [custom Rhodes clone], Vintage Vibe Vibanet [custom D6 Clavinet clone], Wurlitzer Electric Piano, Mellotron, Vox Continental Organ, Farfisa Mini Compact Organ, Moog synthesizer, Korg SV1, and Nord Electro 5.

Mike Walton "BMW"

Mike Walton’s journey into music began at the age of 10 when he began playing alto saxophone. Inspired by the music he heard in the soundtracks of his favorite movies Mike joined the band in middle school. While he did enjoy being in the band, it wasn’t until his junior year in high school that he began to realize that he wanted to have a career in music. Also during his junior year, Mike began taking private lessons from educator and Jazz saxophonist, Kenyon Carter who introduced Mike to jazz music and other saxophonist who would become life long influences in his musical growth.

After high school, Mike attended Valdosta State University where he studied with Carey Brague. He also began studying writing and arranging from David Springfield. While in Valdosta, Mike began playing in the local bars sitting in with rock and funk groups before forming a fusion band with his friends. He gained much experience and began gigging in his third year at VSU including forming his own quartet and performing weekly at a local restaurant. Mike earned his bachelors degree in music performance in 2010.

After graduating from VSU, Mike Walton took time off from school to work on his playing and get more gigging experience. However, he found little opportunity in his home town and decided to enroll at Georgia State University for his masters degree in jazz studies. He continued to hone his skills under the direction of Mace Hibbard as well as Gordon Vernick and Kevin Bales. While attending GSU, Mike Walton had the opportunity to perform with internationally known artists Eddie Daniels, Donny McCaslin, Duffy Jackson and Joey Defrancesco. He also took great advantage of the local music scene in Atlanta regularly attending the weekly jam sessions and performances of local artists. Mike graduated with his masters May of 2014.

Mike Walton currently resides in Atlanta GA where he performs regularly with the Joe Gransden big band and Russell Gunn’s Blackhawk quintet as well as working on his own projects and writing original music. During is down time, Mike Walton enjoys being a geek. He is especially a huge fan of Star Wars and Star Trek. He also enjoys scale model building , reading a good book or watching documentaries. Most of all he enjoys spending time with his closest friends both human and Dog

Lemon City Trio

to Oct 26

Lemon City Trio

Yet another “new” band made us sit up and listen as Lemon City Trio knocked out a great set that featured jazz, fusion, soul, and some really spacey shit as well. There was a tune called “Flying Free” from their EP, and the closing “Cliffs” was great space stuff.

Hailing from Miami, Florida, Lemon City Trio brings a fresh new taste to the contemporary moment of funk music, offering an impressive level of sophistication worthy of appreciation. The band honed its sound through monthly residencies at one of Miami’s best live music venues Lagniappe House and used the space as a platform to create a sound that is infectiously unique.

Lemon City refers to a historical area of Miami, where the band’s rehearsal studio is located in Little Haiti. It is also where the inspiration for the songwriting process takes place. With Brian Robertson on organ, Nick Tannura on guitar, and Aaron Glueckauf on drums, the trio brings the cultural influences of their surroundings and puts them forth in a smooth, boundless, self-created territory.

Lemon City Trio’s debut EP Welcome to the Neighborhood takes listeners on a journey through a wide variety of musical styles and diverse textures. From the hip-hop edge in “Jawn” to the laid-back New Orleans-influenced “Don’t Vibe Me (Billy),” the Lemon City Trio demonstrates their broad range of influences and taste in this record. It is a band born from the love of traditional organ trio music, that seeks to pick up the torch and take it to new places.

Danny Paschall

Daniel Paschall was born in Exmore, VA. 

Since everyone on his father's side of the family was a musician/music fan of some sort , and since he wasn't "in" with the cool kids at school (a fraction of every musician's life story), he decided to occupy his time learning an instrument.  His father, "The Amazing Firpo", got him a drum set by age 11.

 

He gravitated toward the drums because he found hitting things to be very therapeutic. He developed his talents to the point to where he started gigging with various bands around his hometown whilst studying percussion formally with Berklee graduate, Billy Barton. After high school he relocated to Atlanta to study at the Atlanta Institute of Music.  He's been doing music as his full time "job" ever since.



Some of the people whom he has worked/played/toured with include, Col. Bruce Hampton Ret., Ike Willis (guitar player and vocalist for Frank Zappa's band; '79-'88), Atlanta Funk Society, Emil Werstler (guitarist for Chimaira/Daath), From Exile, Alex Gordon Hi-Fi, NoJaboinga, Caravan of Fools (GA Renaissance Fest. act), Kevin Scott, Keith Jenkins (musical director for James Brown's band),Grant Green Jr., Jacob Deaton, Kebbi Williams (of Tedeschi/Trucks Band & the Wolfpack), Church Basement Band...


...along with many other talented folks around Atlanta's music scene and elsewhere.

C Shorty

C SHORTY is an Atlanta based band with hooky rock songs, great on stage presence, and a new 5 song EP released in early 2017.

Their songs go from soft acoustic to outright rock and all places between. The signature pedal steel guitars on top of many of their tunes put their self-titled release in a " not quite Americana but not quite Southern rock" category. 

"We definitely see ourselves as a rock band that doesn't quite fit into any "type" of music. It's a good thing. There is a magic consistency in our songs though that make them "C Shorty" songs, but we like a lot of different kinds of music and let the songs live and breath on their own". 

If there are any doubts that they are having a good time playing whatever comes to mind then check out the tune (and ultimately the band's namesake) "C Shorty", inspired by a rather attractive Deputy Sheriff in a local Atlanta jail. 

How many bands are named after a sexy sheriff?
