Marcus Eaton returns to The Sapphire Room for an intimate solo performance. 

Recently hailed by two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee David Crosby as "one of the best young singer-songwriters in America - maybe even the world", MARCUS EATON is receiving international acclaim through his music which has redefined the acoustic rock genre.

Through impassioned, intelligent lyrics, complex yet accessible and memorable melody and a virtuoso guitar technique that immediately brings to mind Pat Metheny and Michael Hedges, Marcus is emerging as one of the leading lights in the new generation of American singer-songwriters.

Brought up in the wilds of Idaho, the son of songwriter Steve Eaton and grandson of professional opera singers, Marcus grew up immersed in music. He began performing professionally in bars and clubs long before he was legally old enough to patronise them and at the age of just 21, following two independently released albums, he and his band The Lobby caught the attention of MCA/Universal and recorded The Day the World Awoke (2003), reviewed as ‘one of the best examples of intelligent acoustic rock in a long time’.

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.

Lance Lipinsky's Rock Baby Rock: Celebrating the Birth of Rock 'n' Roll. This event also features An Evening at American Bandstand with special tributes to the Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson.

Influenced by the mid century birth of Rock & Roll era of the 1950's and 60's, Wimberley, Texas born Lipinsky preserves the timeless tradition of the Rockabilly subculture in both his songwriting and his live power house, piano stage show antics. Watch him in action here and here. 

Accompanied by the Dreamers, Lipinsky's driving Jerry Lee Lewis piano rhythms and Presley inspired swagger in his own persona has lead him to appear on both the David Letterman Show and at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Recently he was featured in the new HBO series "Vinyl" directed by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese.

After headlining over 2500 action packed shows at the Apollo Theatre in the TONY award winning Broadway musical "Million Dollar Quartet," Lipinsky's debut album "Roll" was recorded in Memphis' historic Sun Studios using all original, vintage analog equipment.

Lipinsky's songwriting and live showmanship can be described as a continuation - a much awaited novel sequel to a style born in the Atomic age of the 50's. Some would label it and dismiss it as "oldies" or "nostalgia," but artists like Lance devoted to the Roots music movement remind us that this style is not just a mere trend from the past, but rather its own genre that is still alive and well and standing the test of time.

Boise Blues Society and Riverside Hotel are excited to present Tinsley Ellis in the Sapphire Room on Saturday, February 24th. His brand new album "Winning Hand" on Alligator Records marks Tinsley's return to the guitar-driven hard rock sound that made him a legend in the blues-rock world.

Ellis was among the first of the New Generation blues heroes that included Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray and many others. He says, "From BB King, I learned about performing with dynamics. From James Brown, I learned about putting on a seamless, exciting concert and from The Allmans, I learned about how to excite fans with extended instrumental jamming.

Now he says he's ready to prove again that whenever he picks up a guitar, he's playing with a Winning Hand!
