Artifactual String Unit / 3- Way Mirror

Artifactual String Unit

"We're something of a classical trio, albeit with non-standard instrumentation (violin, cello, bass), taking a garage band approach to our music," says Chip Epsten, violinist for the Artifactual String Unit, who is performing two sets selections from their forthcoming self-titled debut CD Oct. 25 upstairs at Elliott Street Deli & Pub.

Epsten (Oy Klezmer, 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra) and his ASU bandmates Ben Shirley (Faun & A Pan Flute) on cello and Gabe Monticello (Space Mirrors, Chamber Cartel) on double bass, draw upon years of classical training and countless gigs in bands and settings of every stripe to create an eclectic, thoroughly engaging blend of acoustic chamber jazz tinged with rock, folk, and blues inflections. "It's chamber music for a bar," says Epsten, "but, when the CD production company made us choose a genre, we picked 'World,' which just about covers it."

Artifactual String Unit is exploring a world not completely of its own design, but close enough to avoid easy labelling.

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/).

Stevie Tombstone

There are many different species of the Music Artist. Various combinations of singers, songwriters and entertainers.  But it’s the ones that wear their art that get to us the most. The ones that don’t know how not to tell the truth in their music and reveal the raw and ragged triumphs that in the end are more beautiful because of the honesty of the struggle. These are the Artists that get in our bones and shake loose our demons by slaying their own with chords and words. Artists like Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin…and Stevie Tombstone." Outlaw Magazine

"Stevie Tombstone is a quintessential troubadour, a veteran musician who’s had a degree of success but has mostly been relegated to “best-kept secret” status. The leader of an Atlanta-based swamp-rockabilly band called The Tombstones in the 1980s and ’90s, Tombstone has now settled into a solo career in which he crafts powerful folk songs tinged with classic country and vintage blues influences.

Raelyne Nelson & Hannah Fairlight are Mm Hmm

When Midwest native, Hannah Fairlight, moved to Raelyn Nelson's (Willie Nelson's granddaughter) hometown of Nashville, TN, the people of the village kept confusing them for one another so they formed a band sometime in mid-December of 2016.

The pair have individually gained a lot of traction with their solo projects but the universe pushed them together to form an acoustic duo that is “clever as the dickens” and “envelope pushing” (Nashville Arts Magazine). Their “modern day Hee-Haw Show” has grabbed the attention of the Nashville music scene with features in the East Nashvillian’s “Women in Music” issue that claimed mmhmm was “the breakout duo of the year.” With catchy melodies, pretty harmonies, Fairlight on acoustic guitar, Nelson on ukulele, both donned with chaps, it’s no wonder that the pair have been voted the “Cutest band around” by local publications. What makes the talented duo work so well? “There are no "no’s" in mmhmm”- Fairlight says. “mmhmm”- agrees Nelson.

Justin Chesarek

Since arriving in Atlanta in August, 2008, Justin Chesarek, a transplant from rural Pennsylvania, has made quite a name for himself. He isn't your average session drummer. While frequently playing gigs with Gary Motley, Gordon Vernick, Will Scruggs, and some of the city's finest big bands, Justin also flexes his composing muscles with his group The Tree-O of Love, and performs regularly at Atlanta's premier jazz club.

Pulling diverse influences from jazz, classical, rock, and world music, Justin writes and plays music with emotion, putting his artistry and talent in every note and beat he comes across. The end product is jazz - the virtuosity of Bebop and a retro-modern mindset oozing with musicality and a beat that gets the inner ear thumpin'. Justin speaks of how composing as a drummer allows him to supply more of a concept of drums in melody and gives him the opportunity to inject different rhythms and colors.

Consorting with members of jazz royalty including Houston Person, Jerry Bergonzi, and Johnny O'Neal, just to name a few, Justin is regulary asked to perform with some of the biggest names around.

A graduate of Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, PA., Justin holds a Bachelors of Music in Education. Under the direction of Dr. Stephen Hawk, Justin completed a tw-week European tour, making appearances at the Montreaux Jazz Festival and the North Sea Jazz Festival.

Justin finished his Masters of Music in Jazz Studies in May, 2010 at Georgia State University and currently teaches at Emory University and Kennesaw State University. He is on the board of directors for the Atlanta Lovers of Music Association. Justin endorses Vic Firth drum sticks, brushes, and mallets.

Statebirds (Jeff Sipe, Bryan Lopes, Neal Fountain, Mike Seal)

9:00 PM21:00

Statebirds (Jeff Sipe, Bryan Lopes, Neal Fountain, Mike Seal)

Bryan Lopes, Jeff Sipe, Mike Seal and Neal Fountain join us for from the far reaches of Georgia and come together to perform a moving night of music. Everytime these guys get together its like they invent a new sound of music and rhythm.

Jeff Siep: Jeff began to play drums in the sixth grade. Then In 1975, Jeff’s first stepping stone was attending the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. — One of Jeff’s dreams finally came true when he was accepted to Berklee in 1977. While at Berklee, Jeff studied under Bob Kaufman and Bill Norine, he attended clinics given by Alan Dawson and was taken under by his mentor Lee Venters. Jeff was lucky enough to attend Berklee with an impressive cast of musicians like Branford Marsalis, Bill Frisell, Mike Stern and Jeff Watts, Kevin Eubanks, Dean Parks, Steve Vai, just to name a few.

While studying at Berklee, Jeff met and played in a band with Steve Vai and Baron Brown called “Winter”. This experience turned Jeff on to a wide world of music and rhythm which gave him valuable tools that he still carries with him today.

After his stay in Boston, Jeff moved to Atlanta in 1983. There he began gigging and teaching at the Atlanta Institute for Music and at a popular hang out for Atlanta drummers, Atlanta Drums and Percussion. Jeff spent time sitting in with local musicians and was introduced to Bruce Hampton through Dan Wall, a keyboardist that he had been playing with…..and that’s the rest of the story. It seemed too fitting that their first meeting took place at a wedding because not only was there a marriage there was a wedding of vast musical intention. Jeff then asked Oteil Burbridge and Jimmy Herring to sit in on this free willed musical band wagon and the Aquarium Rescue Unit was born.

In 1996, Jeff met up with Swedish-born bass extraordinaire Jonas Hellborg and the Memphis guitar monster Shawn Lane. This Trio did many Europoean tours as well as American tours. Jonas released 4 recordings of this band including “Temporal Analogues of Paradise”, a classic.

Jeff’s interest in bluegrass music led him to 3 years with “Leftover Salmon” where he gigged almost non stop! The recording “Nashville Sessions” was a high lite of that period having an opportunity to work with Randy and Earl Srcruggs, Bela Fleck, Waylon Jennings, Lucinda Williams, Taj Mahal, & Jerry Douglas among others.

Jeff took on his own creation known as the Zambiland Orchestra. This experimental big band featured Ricky Keller conducting members of Phish, Widespread Panic, Michael Ray and the Cosmic Crew, the Derek Trucks Band, the Fiji Mariners, MOE, Little Feat, Sam Bush, John Cowan, Warren Haynes, Stanton Moore, the Atlanta All-Stars, Little John, Sonny Emory Randy Honea, and many others.

The Zambiland Orchestra performed as a charity event for six years in a row every December just before Christmas at the Variety Playhouse as a benefit for Hospice and the food bank.

By the 4th year into it there where 83 players on stage being conducted by the great spirit Ricky Keller and Jeff. One invited guest was Matt Butler who was so inspired by this spirited event that he began his own version called the” Everyone Orchestra”.

Even more recently Jeff teamed up with long time friend and guitar maniac Jimmy Herring on a project known as Z, that’s Project Z to most. Together with fellow Atlantian producer/musician Ricky Keller and mega organ/keyboardist Oliver Wells, Project Z recorded a self titled debut album filled with juicy fusionisk tunes that gathered praise from all realms. Since then a second Project Z has been released as well as Jeff’s solo release “Timeless” featuring Paul Hanson, Derek Jones, Jason Crosby, Kofi Burbridge, Count ‘M Butu and Derek Trucks.

Currently Jeff is touring with Mike Seal and Taylor Lee as the “Jeff Sipe Trio”.
Mike Seal on guitar; Taylor Lee on bass.

Other Jeff Sipe releases include:
* the “Jeff Sipe Band” “Studio Live” with Mike Seal on guitar, Neal Fountain on bass and Matt Slocum on keys.
* “Art of the Jam” with a host of many great musicians
* Jeff Sipe, Paul Hanson & Jonas Hellborg

Neal Fountain: Hailing from the musical hotbed of Athens, GA, 32 year-old Neal Fountain has been playing professionally from the age of 14. Best known as a sideman to prominent local fixtures Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Fiji Mariners and drumming phenom Jeff Sipe (aka Apt Q258),  Neal’s name is on the short list of greater Atlanta’s finest musicians.  

Outside of Georgia, Neal remains a relative unknown, even after his band was named Local Jazz Outfit of the Year from Atlanta’s Creative Loafing Magazine and receiving very healthy reviews from allaboutjazz.com., jambands.com52ndStreet jazz, Bass Player, Bass Frontiers, and Relix Magazine.  

Brian Lopes:Bryan Lopes was raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts and grew up listening to rock, R&B and jazz greats including John Coltrane,Michael BreckerWayne ShorterDavid Sanborn and Cannonball Adderly. He won a national award at an early age for outstanding high school soloist and toured in the All-American Jazz Band.

After high school, Mr. Lopes was awarded a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music where he studied with saxophone great George Garzone and played in the school's first touring ensemble.  After spending time in New York, he moved to the Atlanta area and quickly became a pivotal contributor to a collective of improvisers drawing from roots steeped in jazz, bluegrass, southern jam band and funk.  Regular jam sessions, coordinated by drummer Jeff Sipe, included Count M'Butu on percussion, Jimmy Herring and Randy Honea on guitars, Ricky Keller and Neal Fountain on bass and Mr. Lopes on sax. These sessions led to collaborations including The Apartment Project, Megaphone Man and the latest incarnation The Bryan Lopes Trio including Jeff Sipe on drums and Neal Fountain on bass.  Mr. Lopes has worked with Chick CoreaFrank SinatraBob HopeNatalie ColeAretha FranklinRay CharlesStone Temple PilotsDon Henley and recorded for CNN, TBS, and TNT among others.

Mike Seal:Mike Seal is a Nashville-based musician and the current guitarist for the Jerry Douglas Band. Originally from Bridgewater, Virginia, he's played out of Tennessee and Georgia for the past ten years, touring and recording with a wide variety of bands including: The Jerry Douglas Band, The Black Lillies, Jeff Sipe Trio, The Jeff Coffin Mu-tet, Ike Stubblefield, Robinella, Larkin Poe, and the bluegrass group Mountain Soul. 

Mike has performed and recorded on many other projects as a guitarist, pianist and Dobro player. Jerry Douglas' latest album, 'What If', features his guitar work and composition skills. His background is primarily in jazz, but you will hear him performing a wide range of music spanning multiple genres.

Patrick Arthur

Patrick has the big ears and open mind of a musical seeker. 2018 marks his first full year out of college and it already promises to be a good one. His band Grüt will release its first full-length album, Side Room Stories, and tour in support of it throughout the year. Also in store are the release of albums he played on by Tyrone Jackson and Justin Chesarek, and performances with several original groups: The composition-driven Rebel Boys Big Band, the avant-garde group The Cheap Ensemble, the electric, Frisell-influenced PBR Trio with bassist Brandon Boone and drummer Robert Boone, and Artimus, an electronic/experimental group led by saxophonist Will Holifield.

Patrick took up the guitar without giving it much thought, when he was attending high school at the Davidson Fine Arts School in his hometown of Augusta, GA. He entered the school as a percussionist and wanted to get involved in its jazz groups, but the only instrument that hadn’t been filled was guitar, so he went for it. Almost overnight, he was addicted, at first inspired by the playing of the omnipresent guitar gods Metheny and Montgomery. But he soon discovered more eclectic influences such as Gilad Hekselman, whose vertical, pianistic, “Bill Evans on guitar” approach opened Patrick’s imagination to the less-explored sounds of jazz guitar. Patrick made quick progress throughout high school and performed with The Georgia Allstate Jazz Band, The Governor’s Honors program, and the Augusta State University big band.

In 2013, the Georgia Music Hall of Fame awarded him the Georgia Music Talent Search Scholarship to attend Kennesaw State University in the Atlanta area and study guitar with Trey Wright. Wright helped Patrick explore his eclectic influences and broaden and solidify his technical foundation. Meanwhile, Atlanta venues such as Elliott St. Pub and Churchill Grounds became his school away from school, where he listened to and played with the city’s best and gave the concepts he had been working on weekly trials by fire. Patrick found another mentor in Amos Hoffman, a world-renowned guitarist and oudist who taught Gilad Hekselman and plays regularly with bassist Avishai Cohen. 

By the time he graduated in 2017, Patrick had established a presence on the Atlanta music scene, as well as a musical ethos centered around exploration, experimentation and collaboration. He had also formed his own band, Grüt, with schoolmates Brandon Boone, Daniel Wytanis, and Morgan Guerrin, and played on Guerrin’s debut album “The Saga” which recently hit #3 on the iTunes jazz charts. As his performance schedule and resume to date can attest, the musicians and projects he has invested in are already paying creative dividends, and the exploration is just beginning.

As a result, the college football world will be treated to one of the most highly-anticipated rematches in the history of the sport. 

Alabama walked off a winner in January at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, toppling Georgia 26-23 in overtime to claim the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship. In that game, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa came off the bench for an ineffective Jalen Hurts and tossed three touchdown passes including the 41-yard strike to DeVonta Smith on second-and-26 on the Crimson Tide's second play in overtime. It was that night in Atlanta that the legend of Tua was born.

There was another quarterback in that game, though, and he will have revenge on his mind. Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm burned his redshirt in the first quarter of the first game of the season and led his team to the brink of college football's ultimate prize. Fromm went 16-of-32 passing for 232 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in that loss. With a full offseason as the unquestioned starter in Athens, 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions on the season, Fromm will be back and certainly won't be intimidated by the fearsome Crimson Tide defense.

Some of the names have changed, but the build-up and excitement for the rematch will remain the same. Get ready, college football. Live on CBS at 4 p.m. ET on Dec. 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, you'll get a rematch unlike any the sport of college football has ever seen in the 2018 SEC Championship Game.
