• sweetteatrioRising country group, Sweet Tea Trio, brings their fresh sound and beautiful harmonies to the Dogwood Black Box on Friday, October 20 at 7:30 p.m.

    The group is opening nine dates for rap-rocker Kid Rock in September throughout Michigan and Indiana. Earlier this year they were chosen by LiveNation to be the opener for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, AL and most recently they wowed fans at the CMA Music Fest in Nashville. Later in October they will open for Deana Carter in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

    The three young ladies, Victoria Camp, Savannah Coker and Kate Falcon were named Alabama’s Country Female Artist of the Year for 2016 and are winning the hearts and catching the eye of fans across the country. Their sound is unique, unlike what you hear on country radio today.

    The Trio’s self-titled EP debuted on the i-Tunes Country Chart at number 11 this past June and has continued to delight audiences and the country music industry alike.

    Originally from Alabama, the now Nashville-based trio met in January of 2014 through a Birmingham artist development program called Nashville Bound. Each artist sang individually when they initially entered the program but quickly felt an instant vocal connection once they sang together. The Trio has been performing together ever since.

  • jeff-daniels-and-ben-daniels-band-640x360-1b12c10cddIn 1976, Jeff Daniels bought a Guild D-40 from Herb David’s Guitar Studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan, threw it in the back of his old Buick, and moved to New York City. That guitar led to a creative outlet, became a solace, a road into the artist that he didn’t know existed. Now, over 40 years later, he just released his 8th record, Simple Truths.

    On his album, Days Like These, Jeff Daniels and the Ben Daniels Band recorded songs that often were inspired by his career. For instance, the idea for the bluegrass-y Now You Know You Can comes from the filming of the pilot of  The Newsroom, the HBO drama for which he won an Emmy playing Will McAvoy, anchor of a cable newscast.

    When Ben Daniels decided he was going to be a musician, it was more than a career choice. A natural poet, this young songwriter went to school on Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, and Jack White, among others. His lyrics speak directly to a younger generation that hears, sees, and thinks about the very things he is writing. From their opening song to the finale of their set, the Ben Daniels Band cuts through with their originality, musicianship, and a sound that spans Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock.

    The son of actor Jeff Daniels he has quietly monitored what it takes to live life as an artist. Beyond a passed down talent, the Ben Daniels Band believes in hard work, perseverance, and creatively challenging themselves and their audience.

    With Tommy Reifel on bass, Wesley Fritezmeier on drums / mandolin, and Amanda Daniels on percussion/vocals, Ben Daniels Band’s live show never fails to take over the venue. With five CDs under their belts – Coming From The C, Checkin’ In To The Michigan Inn, Can’t You See, The Mountain Home EP, and their dual album & movie release Old Gold – the Ben Daniels Band is has grown to be a formidable group that sounds pleasantly familiar, yet unforgettably unique.
