Sandbar 6pm-9pm: Blaze & Kelly

FTo listen to Blaze and Kelly is to experience a musical nirvana. Their art takes the listener beyond the realm of the temporal, and into those intangible places we call spirit, dreams, and love. There’s no doubt these two laughter-loving women can sing—Niccole’s powerful lead vocals blend perfectly with Mo’s sweet tone. But what makes them true artists is their ability to create emotion. To Blaze and Kelly, it’s not money, fame, or precision that creates happiness, but genuine human connection. And their songs illustrate the humanity, passion, and truth each one of us strives to feel and find gladness

Originally from Pocatello Idaho, I moved to Nampa, Idaho in 1971 after being adopted. From a young age, I’ve always found comfort in music and used to lie awake at night creating symphonies in my mind. In the sixth grade, I joined band class and played trombone, starting a musical journey that has lasted til present day. After getting my first guitar at age twelve, I didn’t realize that putting it down wouldn’t be an option. After a few early lessons I took to teaching myself to play many styles. Somewhere along the way I started singing. I’ve been in a few bands including The Decade Blues Band, SoundHawk and most recently RoundHouseAnthem. Now, performing solo and song writing are my passion. Music has allowed me to express my thoughts and feelings about life and living.

BAR365 & SANDBAR Admission Price: Free and open to the public

BAR365 5pm-8pm: Bernie Reilly

 

Like countless other teenagers in America, Bernie Reilly learned the ways of guitar alone in his room by imitating the likes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Nick Drake, Jimi Hendrix, and most of all Neil Young. After a childhood of formal classical cello study, this "new" music was a breath of fresh air. Putting aside his classical roots he dove headlong into the world of rock n roll and quickly discovered his true calling...

 

   

Sandbar 6pm-9pm: Steve Eaton

As a songwriter, Steve’s songs have earned gold and platinum records for The Carpenters and Art Garfunkel. His songs have also been recorded by many other artists, including Glen Campbell, The Righteous Brothers, Ann Murray, and Lee Greenwood. Steve has received Emmy nominations for his original music written for PBS and has written music for the Nature Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

As a performer, Steve has performed in a variety of venues all over the country, and has been a member of several bands including The Fabulous Chancellors and Paul Revere and the Raiders.

Sandbar 6pm-9pm: The Bourbon Dogs

The Bourbon Dogs are a two (occasionally three)-piece acoustic band out of Boise Idaho that plays their own versions of rock, country, and alternative music. The music they play is all the stuff that they love, music that should make you tap your foot & nod your head, if not sing along, or at least make you think, "Whoa, I haven't heard that forever. .. uhh, was that really Def Leppard??"  They play their own stripped-down acoustic versions of the music that we all love, and we think if you listen in, you'll seem to like it too.

Her playing and singing can be summed up as “smooth and sophisticated”, and, as many a fan has stated, she’s “very, very easy on the ears”.

"Took a whole lot of miles to know what I know now," sings Will Hoge on "Growing Up Around Here," the opening track off of his tenth studio album, Small Town Dreams. "I'm kinda proud of growing up around here." It's been a whole lot of miles, indeed: miles on the road, driving the bus himself from venue to venue since the nineties; miles to and from Nashville writing rooms, where he's spent countless hours penning songs  some for him, some for others; miles exploring lands outside of his native Franklin, Tennessee, chasing the spirits of his musical heroes. Roads meet, roads split, roads led to home. This is the album that follows them all, every twist and turn in Hoge's American journey  a journey that's positioned him as one of our keenest, most honest modern storytellers, telling both his tale and ours. 

"It's a reflection of where I am currently in my life," says Hoge of Small Town Dreams, "but also where I grew up, and, ultimately, where I think I'm going." From the streets of the town where he was raised, to the sidewalks of cities a hundred times the size, we all have dreams; and these are the stories of growing up, looking back and passing on those dreams, told as only Hoge can. Nostalgia, in his hands, is truly magic. 

An extremely prolific songwriter with ten albums under his belt and countless songs written for others (including a Grammy nomination for Eli Young Band's number-one hit, "Even If Breaks Your Heart," co-written with Paslay), Hoge saw this next phase of his journey as an opportunity to explore even deeper into both his country and rock & roll roots. Never fitting particularly neatly into a genre box, he's always just made the music that moved him  but it's safe to say that he feels more kinship with the country community than ever, particularly as a storyteller.

Searching for the shaman that lives inside the guitar has led Willy Porter on a musical and personal odyssey spanning over two decades, 10 albums, and multiple continents. His journey remains defined by an independent drive to evolve as a musician and human, affording him the freedom to create the next song on his own terms. Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Porters songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar driven events- equal parts grit, soul, and muscle -that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Porters voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.

On his latest disc, Human Kindness (2015), Porter brings all of his acoustic, electric, and multi-string chops to bear in service of a great collection of songs. This al-bum is a driving, tuneful return to the pop sensibilities of his best work that also showcases Porters growth as a writer, musician, and producer.

Returning to the Sapphire Room after his amazing show last year, Griffin comes on the heels of his brand new release. 

Griffin House was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. He picked up the guitar when he was 18, started writing songs right away, and within a couple years started making records and performing live. 

In August 2004, House was featured on the CBS Sunday Morning show, music journalist Bill Flanagan (MTV/VH1) raved about Lost and Found (House's first nationally released record), putting the newcomer on his short list of the best emerging songwriters in the U.S. "I bought House's CD after a show in New York City," said Flanagan, "and this never happens: I took it home and must have listened to it 20 times that weekend. I was knocked out. 

Several self-released albums followed, and in 2008 House released Flying Upside Down, produced by Jeff Trott and featuring Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. House has toured extensively, opening for the Cranberries, Josh Ritter, John Mellencamp, Ron Sexsmith, Patti Scialfa, Mat Kearney, and many more. These days House tours the United States both solo-acoustic and with a band headlining his own shows.

Glen Phillips started his first band, Toad The Wet Sprocket in Santa Barbara at age 15. It was that group's third album -- the jangling, orchestral Fear -- that truly broke the group, garnering heavy radio play with the singles "All I Want" and "Walk on the Ocean." After three years away from the recording studio, Toad returned to the mainstream with Dulcinea, which again found one of its singles, "Fall Down," in heavy radio rotation. After six albums and a substantial string of hits, the group disbanded in 1998.Phillips began touring as a solo act after Toad the Wet Sprocket's demise, and has released 5 solo records and two EPs, collaborated on two projects (Mutual Admiration Society and Works Progress Administration), released an EP with Plover (with Neilson Hubbard and Garrison Starr) and an album as RemoteTreeChildren (with Portland's John Askew).

In 2006, while supporting the Mr Lemons album, he also toured North American with a reunited Toad the Wet Sprocket. Toad has toured off and on since that time, and in 2011 played 70 shows and decided to begin writing for a new album, to be released late in 2012.  Glen is currently at home except for a long weekend of shows each month, and is writing songs for Toad as well as future solo releases. He still lives in Santa Barbara with his wife and three daughters.
