If the music of an entire decade can be summed up succinctly, this band (or that, as the case may be) is the one to do it.

Led by the distinctive Travis LeRoy, one time bassist for 80s progressive-metals Salem Spade, That Eighties Band is also a fashion medley of the MTV era with costumed nods to the Cure, Guns N Roses and Madonna, among others.

1:45-3:00pm

Nick Schnebelen Band

Nick Schnebelen – An Artist Who Stands Out In The Crowd. One of the first things you discover about Nick Schnebelen is his commitment to his music. He does not tippy-toe or wade in; he plunges right into the deep end.  Forceful and determined succinctly describe Nick’s approach to guitar-playing and singing.

Nick came to widespread attention as a member of Trampled Under Foot, the Kansas City family band that was founded in 2004 won the 2008 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Nick was also singled out for the “Albert King Award” as the best guitarist in the competition.

Joined by younger brother Kris and sister Danielle, TUF enjoyed two highly successful albums produced by Tony Braunagel, “Wrong Side of the Blues” (2011) and “Badlands” (2013), which climbed to the top position on Billboard’s Top Blues Album charts.  The band was nominated in 2012 as Band of the Year at the Blues Music Awards and won that honor in 2014.

 

In 1997, Nick relocated to Philadelphia, where he formed the blues-based jam band K-Floor, and later toured with Buddahead, a British pop band. By 2000, Kris and Danielle joined him in Philadelphia to begin Trampled Under Foot.

The energy of Nick’s shows with his solo band was captured in the recording of “Live in Kansas City” in 2017.

All of that has led to his debut solo work “Crazy All By Myself,” TBA, 2019 -produced once again by Braunagel and featuring songs written with Gary Nicholson, Jeff Paris and Dave Duncan.  The CD flexes with styles ranging from slow blues to soul to funk to rock, with even a dash of rockabilly.

The title cut, a blues co-written with Dave Duncan, cuts deeps lyrically and musically. Nick’s stinging guitar work is underpinned by Mike Finnigan’s flowing piano at its base while the lyrics paint a picture of a man meeting the realization that he doesn’t need a woman to lead him down the path of destruction, that’s he’s perfectly capable of doing it on his own.

“This CD has so many different styles on it,” Nick says, “but it still works. Most of the songs started in my brain and then were expanded lyrically, but they seem to pair up well here so the varied styles don’t seem out of place.

“My goal is to continue to write and create new styles for the blues,” Nick says. “I want to stand out as an original artist.”
