Cohara & Klein In Concert

  

Doors open at 6:30pm, Show at 7:30pm

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE!

 

  

Jon Klein met Jake Cohara in April of 2017, and the two have been making music together ever since. Cohara & Klein’s original music is a blend of rock, R&B, pop, reggae and folk, with the resulting sound being something entirely new.

Jon hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and grew up playing in the local bands there, always admiring the songwriting skills of Lennon/McCartney and Elton John/Bernie Taupin. Jon studied guitar at the Berklee College of Music and Musician’s Institute, eventually working with Supertramp’s Carl Verheyen. Jon’s guitar playing has gained local notoriety while he’s accompanied singer/songwriter Steve Eaton for the past ten years, and Gayle Chapman and Redstone before that.

Jake Cohara hails from Portland, and is a popular performer in the local music scene there. Jake’s powerful, soulful vocals have invited comparisons to Scott Weiland and Eddie Vedder, but still the young, blonde-haired singer brings something refreshingly new to the music table. Backed by a band of talented musicians, come listen to Cohara & Klein’s music in the beautiful Sapphire Room!

Daring Greatly returns to The Sapphire Room after a sold-out show with RAVE reviews!

A dad, his 2 sons and their 2 best friends - their goal is to continuously share the message of being fearless, free, and vulnerable - to 'step inside the ring' and to dare greatly. The message is simple, but the music is even more powerful than that. This 5 piece group gathers heavy influence from the 60's & 70's classic rock era - featuring real and perfected "blood harmonies", crunching guitar solos, that powerful B3 Organ sound, topped with steady and precise drumming dynamics. Grab your tickets before this one sells out too!

Idaho Songwriters Association presents

Jack Loyd Gish CD Release Concert

  

Doors open at 6:00pm, Show at 7:00pm

$13 general, $17 preferred ($18/$22 at the door) New ticket prices include fees!

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE!

 

  

Jack Loyd Gish is a rare songwriting talent, unique in his approach to music. His lyrics tell of a world where main street is lit by the beer signs in the windows of the bar. He sings about love and Idaho and his messages are for everyone. There’s sugar in the coffee and a dirty bar rag.

Jack has hundreds of great songs to share and it amazes us that this is only his first release. This album will entertain you and keep you coming back! Jack's autobiographical fictional songwriting has influenced songs on the CD such as 'Turn Out The Lights", "Another Drink" and "Idaho Blues". Jack will be joined by TT Miller, Larry “Mando” Brandon, Tommy Hogard, Grant Green, Steve Eaton, Gordon and Tamera Hamilton

Oh yeah! He’s extremely good look’in too... just ask his wife, Lois!

Jack Loyd Gish was born in Cottonwood, Idaho in 1947 and was raised in small north Idaho towns from Bonner’s Ferry to Craigmont. His father (an old-time fiddler) brought a guitar home and at 16 Jack instantly be came a songwriter. After serving his country as an Army Lieutenant in the late sixties he returned home to Idaho and continued his passion for songwriting. He moved south to Boise in the early seventies and became a familiar face in the local music scene. Starting out with the duos of Garets & Gish and Gish & Moran, playing The Sandpiper, Pengilly’s, Lock, Stock & Barrel and other venues in Boise and surrounding towns. The duos developed into The Cowboy Hatband then the Jack Gish Band, and now, much later ‘defjak’. A devoted husband and family man Jack put his performing on hold for 30 years to raise his four kids. Thanks to his good friend Bob Kambitsch he came out of reclusion and joined the ISA in 2010 and became a proud and supportive member. After 50+ years of songwriting and thanks to his good friends and producers Gordon and Tamera Hamilton, his dream of recording a CD of original songs has come true.

Steve Eaton says, "As a songwriter. I get many chances to listen to other songwriters material. I just recently heard a new CD entitled Jack Loyd Gish. This CD gets 15 out of 15 homers! I consider Jack the Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) of songwriting!"

To quote fellow songwriter Mike Cramer, “Jack is an amazing songwriter and a humble man."

From fellow songwriter and band member TT Miller, "Jack's CD is masterfully written, listen closely to his stories..."

They have appeared on stage with members of Yonder Mountain String Band and will be making an appearance at Boise’s seminal fest The Hyde Park Street Fair.

The Sapphire Room | Andy Byron's Americana Music Series

A SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO

"2 GEORGES--STRAIT & JONES"

with The Mighty Red Melons

 

 

Doors open at 7pm, Show at 8pm

General seating: $20 online ($23 at the door)

Preferred seating: $28 online ($31 at the door

Tickets Prices are non-inclusive of Fees and Taxes

SOLD OUT!

  

The Mighty Red Melons pay tribute to two more of their C/W heroes, George Jones and George Strait. Both born in trailer parks to the sound of Hank Williams playing on scratchy 78's in the back room, while the family played darts in the kitchen and got mad at the noise. This hollerin' caused these two babies to start singing when they were only three days old, and they each were making a living on the street corners of Ferguson, Tennessee, and Lewiston, Idaho respectively by the time they were 5. Although from different generations, their paths crossed often at Safeway stores across America as they looked into each other's baskets to see what was in there, and then sang about it.

 

So many of those songs can still be heard on the radio even today, although, with all the “so called” country on there these days, this stuff gets closer and closer to the bottom shelf every year. But if you want to hear real honky tonk from the Two Greatest George's....this show will have it, from stompers to weepers and everything in between. Bring your hankies and your boots… time for another great Melon Tribute Show!

Boise Jazz Society presents:  

Cecile McLorin Salvant Quartet

Doors open at 6:00pm; Show starts at 7:00pm

LIMITED TICKETS MAY BE AVAILABLE

visit boisejazzsociety.org or call 208-426-3498 for more information

  

Cécile McLorin Salvant was born and raised in Miami, Florida of a French mother and a Haitian father. She started classical piano studies at 5, and began singing in the Miami Choral Society at 8. Early on, she developed an interest in classical voice, began studying with private instructors, and later with Edward Walker, vocal teacher at the University of Miami. 

In 2007, Cécile moved to Aix-en-Provence, France, to study law as well as classical and baroque voice at the Darius Milhaud Conservatory. It was in Aix-en-Provence, with reedist and teacher Jean-François Bonnel, that she started learning about jazz, and sang with her first band. In 2009, after a series of concerts in Paris, she recorded her first album "Cécile", with Jean-François Bonnel's Paris Quintet. A year later, she won the Thelonious Monk competition in Washington D.C.

Over the years, she has developed a curiosity for the history of American music, and the connections between jazz, vaudeville, blues, and folk music. Cécile carefully chooses her repertoire, oftentimes unearthing rarely recorded, forgotten songs, with strong stories.
She enjoys popularity in Europe and in the United States, performing in clubs, concert halls, and festivals. In 2014, her second album, WomanChild (Mack Avenue Records) was nominated for a Grammy. 

Her third album, For One To Love (for Mack Avenue Records), was recorded in 2015 with Aaron Diehl (piano), Paul Sikivie (bass), and Lawrence Leathers (drums). In 2016, For One To Love won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album.

Movie Synopsis:

Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legally desegregated the South, discrimination was still rampant in certain areas, making it very difficult for blacks to register to vote. In 1965, an Alabama city became the battleground in the fight for suffrage. Despite violent opposition, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his followers pressed forward on an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, and their efforts culminated in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
