Zepparella

 

 

The Miners Foundry is pleased to present Zepparella on Friday, February 22, 2019.  All female Led Zeppelin powerhouse Zepparella brings their passion for the sacred music of the greatest band in the world all over the US and Canada.  Zepparella shows replicate the nuance and detail of Led Zeppelin’s catalog while honoring the powerful improvisational journeys for which Zeppelin shows were renowned.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8:00 p.m.  Dancing / standing concert with limited seating available.  Tickets are $22 in Advance and $27 at the Door.  Advance sales close at 4:00 p.m. the day of the show.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office.

How to honor the legacy of a band deemed sacred?  Vocalist Anna Kristina, Guitarist Gretchen Menn, Bassist Holly West, and Drummer Clementine of Zepparella know that to tread on holy ground is perilous and must be done with the intent and spirit of a disciple.  Pat attention to the intricacies of the magic, explore the far ends of the innovation, strive for ever-growing ability, and let the purity of the love for the music drive it all.  It wasn’t that long ago women rock musicians were a rare breed.  They might sign up front, or as part of a girl group, but women weren’t often seen playing rhythm or lead guitar.  Times have changed.

Martin Sexton

 

 

The  Miners Foundry is pleased to present Martin Sexton on Wednesday, January 23, 2019.  Doors open 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 for Advance General Admission, $35 General Admission at the Door, and $40 for Limited Reserve.  Limited Reserve will be the first several rows closest to the stage.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees do not apply for purchases made through the Miners Foundry Box Office.

 

“The real thing, people.” – Billboard

Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, Martin Sexton has influenced a generation of contemporary artists.  His songs have appeared on television in shows such as Scrubs, Parenthood, Masters of Sex and in numerous films, though it’s his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for a new experience every time.

New Year’s Eve Bash

 

 

The Miners Foundry and Paul Emery Music are pleased to present Petty Luv with special guest Love Train on Monday, December 31, 2018, at the New Year’s Eve Bash.  Doors  open at 8:00 p.m. and the Show begins at 9:00 p.m.  Tickets are $30 for General Admission (standing / dancing section) and $50 for Reserved Cabaret seating.  Reserved Cabaret is per ticket and includes a seat at a reserved cabaret table and a complimentary split of champagne.  Cabaret tables seat 1-4 guests.

Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry Box Office, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.  Ticketing fees waived for purchased made in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry Box Office.

The mission of Petty Luv is simple – to honor Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers by spreading as much “Luv” and appreciation by recreating his music as close to the original sound as possible for as many people as possible….. hence the band name “Petty Luv”.  It all began due to Tom Petty’s untimely death on October 2, 2017.  The initial goal was to simply pay tribute and celebrate Tom Petty’s life, music, and great contribution to the human race by playing his music to the best of our ability.

 

 

Love Train is a 6-piece dance band that taps into the same gold vein of 60’s soul and R&B as the Blues Bros and the Commitments.

Belting out soul hits from Wilson Picket, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, the O’Jays, Sam and Dave, Stevie Wonder and many more, Love Train delivers a powerfully funky vintage soul groove that WILL get you dancing!

Guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Lyerly, and bassist/vocalist Karel Hendee form the core of the band.

They are joined by ace drummer Tim Bulkley, and backed by a stellar 3-piece horn section (Phil Kember, John DeBoer and Jerry Grant) that have played with such acts as the Temptations.
