RB Stone Blues Band
Sunday, July 10, 2016: 7:00 PM
$15.00 Admission BYOB: Air Conditioned
RB Stone
RB Stone is a singer, songwriter and musician based in Nashville, Tennessee.“He’s been called a Blues Cowboy, Country Bluesman, Americana Artist and Roots Rocker, and he answers yes to all.”  The first listen to R.B. Stone’s Lonesome Traveler’s Blues rings with the authenticity of a bluesman who has been there and done that. Nothing is forced or contrived. This guy has been down all sorts of gravel roads, often face-first. Turns out this bluesman has a whole lifetime of Americana and country music in his background. He’s got a background as colorful as any mountainside spring day and songs that flow as strong as runoff of winter’s snow.

Every bit of this work – from Stone’s achy vocals to his honky-tonk harmonica solos to Glen Kuykendall’s slide guitar and piercing solos – rings with the legitimacy of life’s experiences. The ten original songs here come from Stone’s tenure as a worker on a traveling railroad gang, breaking horses on a Colorado ranch and leading pack tours into the Rocky Mountains for hunters and campers, various stints as a plumber and a rodeo rider, a worker in Hollywood doing commercials, and spending time entertaining military troops. Along the way, he recorded 15 albums.

The songs here are clever and sincere. They are genuine blues in the way Hank Williams wrote blues, not by following chord progressions, but by following his heart. In “The Devil’s Satisfied,” Stone documents the tales of lives wasted on substance abuse. No surprise there, but the National steel of Kuykendall and Stone’s own acoustic are the perfect fit for the tenor of the song with an all too common ending.

Doors open at 6pm and we are a BYO Venue.

Swing Dance with the Tall Granite Big Band

Saturday August 20, 2016 8: PM
$15.00 Admission BYOB: Air Conditioned
Tall Granite
From the syncopated heart of New Hampshire, the Tall Granite Big Band carries on its Swing tradition Texas style! Organized in Concord last year, the 18-member band has its roots in Texas with music collected over seven decades by the late Houston bandleader Johnny Dyson. The Dyson band’s early repertoire included classics from Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Perez Prado, Duke Ellington, Harry James, and other greats. But Dyson also worked closely with Texas arrang­ers including Don Elam and Fred Baetge, and over time his bands acquired unique material reflecting the vital “Third Coast” culture and its Blues and Latin influences, which help distinguish Tall Granite today. Today, our members are drawn from around the Granite State and our focus – as it was in Dyson’s day -- remains on dancing! Our Pitman’s Dance Nights typically are prefaced with a complimentary Swing dance lesson from area instructors to help everyone acquire or brush up their moves! So if you're done with dueling banjos or screaming guitars, grab your two-tone shoes, slick back that hair, join us at the excellent Pitman’s Freight Room and swing and sway or just relax to the Tall Granite Big Band's smokey horns and unique sound!

Free Dance Lesson before the show from 7 – 8 PM. Doors open at 6:00 PM

The title cut was featured on “The House of Blues Radio Hour” as a “Blues Breaker.”

The album received great reviews and was also nominated for a Blues Blast Music Award in 2014 for “Best Rock Blues Album of the year.
