MISS MARCY & her TEXAS SUGERDADDY'S

missmarcy

In a musical genre dominated too often by men, Miss Marcy is at the forefront of the Dallas blues scene, wowing blues aficionados with a voice that sounds one part angelic/two parts devilish, which nearly caused this listener's heart to stop as I fell into her words. Graduating from the University of North Texas in 2001, Miss Marcy has spent the last decade playing club gigs, festivals and private parties across the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 2010, she released her first album Miss Marcy and the Texas SugarDaddy's. Harnessing blues divas like Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and Big Mama Thorton, Miss Marcy is living proof that the blues are timeless. -DallasObserver.com

She ain't no schooled musician with a fancy degree. Miss Marcy is a Bar Singer. She graduated from University of North Texas with a degree in English Literature and since then has been hanging out in bars and playing music with Dallas’ finest musicians. Miss Marcy has been working the Dallas/ Ft. Worth entertainment circuit regularly for several years now. Her musical passion resides with Blues and traditional Jazz. Miss Marcy’s musical style is derived from the Divas from the first part of the 20th century including Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Big Mama Thorton , and the like. In her live show, she rarely does popular standards and instead selects songs that were considered by 20’s and 30’s audiences to be too suggestive for radio or too racial. She has always enjoyed the music of that era and tries to re-create the sound as it would have been.

8PM ― NO COVER!
Instead, buy a cd ($10) or VINYL ($20) and listen to our music.

PAUL SLAVENS

I specially had this poster made with a Unicorn shooting lazers out its eyes to give you some sense of how the evening will go. Laura Harrell added the idea of making the lazers have keyboards imbedded in them.

BTW, this is not some "little-kid" sweet rainbows Unicorn. This is a Reaper Unicorn with keyboard lazer eyes, the Bringer of the Pink Flame, Render of Dimensions.

Please come out and make up songs with me at the AllGood Cafe Friday night. The food is great, they have booze and it aint nuthin but a good time.

BRENT BEST

Your Dog, Champ is mostly a sad, anxiety-ridden album about a dysfunctional family. Best’s album makes the series “Game of Thrones” seem like a Disney movie. The listener should be ready to embrace some deeply disturbing themes that one does not find in other Americana songs about over-drinking, drugs, or lost girlfriends.

On the second song of the album, Best, in his outstanding storytelling manner, writes: “Mama you always told me that the only good man was a dead man,” and that the husband/father was a “Good Man Now” because “I nailed him to his bed, and I stood there and I laughed, while the sheets were dripping red.” In the song “Robert Cole”, the eight years aged boy playing hopscotch: “til she [his mother] howled my name and a shriek it came with a swell of shame and sadness, I just froze, with a pain I simply can’t define.” An abusive father regularly hurts the mother and the day before the kid’s birthday occurred another instance of the abuse.

Despite the sadness, the listener cannot turn away from the melodic, rhythmic narrative that runs throughout most of the album. The record is like a good book (a long one) that you cannot put down. Best’s guitar work and harmonica masterfully complement his ballads, many of which last for six minutes or more. Strangely, despite of the album’s melancholic message, Best’s voice and guitar work come across as slightly uplifting. Your Dog, Champ is not an album to play at a kid’s birthday party or a family reunion, but grab a good Scotch or IPA, settle into a comfortable chair, and you will not be disappointed.

DAN JOHNSON

Singer-songwriter, Dan Johnson's latest album is a superb example of homage and reverence for legendary artistic influences, brought together with the glue of distinct individualism and uniqueness. Texas Country fans are falling in love with the resulting marriage of a straightforward approach to well crafted lyrics and a musical presence that fills out the shape of the sound in all the right places.

One of the greatest beauties of Texas Music is the latitude it gives artists to push the bounds of the genre, whether talking about pioneers like Steve Earle or Ray Wylie Hubbard or some of the amazing younger folks on the scene such as Band of Heathens or Uncle Lucius. "The genre is like a playground, and I absolutely love it," says Johnson. On artistic comparisons, he remarks, "I've had a lot of people tell me the music reminds them of Jason Boland, Cory Morrow, even Reckless Kelly, and that's just great by me." Johnson says it's a tremendous honor to be a part of the Texas music scene, the talent and beauty there is to be found everywhere.

OVER THE RIVER with FLORAMAY HOLLIDAY

I pleased to introduce the newest bluegrass band in the Metroplex, Oak Cliff's own - Over the River! Veteran pickers (and a drummer), assembled in this configuration for the first time, have come together to bring some old time and newgrass tunes just in time for the heat of Summer. Our belief is that fun times with family and friends get even better with foot tappin', swing dancin' or cryin' in your beer music. featuring Kim Herriage, Lucky Pierries - Erik Swanson, Cowboys & Indians - etc

Floramay Holliday will be with us with a bunch of her great Texas tunes and harmonies. Combining sultry power with gentle grit, Floramay Holliday deftly blends the essence of Old-School Country with Contemporary Americana. As part of the Texas Music Industry for the past 18 years, Floramay has played and recorded with some of Austin’s legends, featuring Ray Benson and Guy Clark on her Trouble and a Truer Sound album. Holliday is currently writing and performing in Dallas, as well as around the country. As her broad and expansive fan-base attests, Floramay's soulful southern voice and songwriting move the spirit of the audience, leaving them wanting more.

DARLA OATES    (9PM)
DAVE HICKMOTT (8PM)
WAYNE BALLEW (7PM)

Maybe it's too common a comparison, but what the hell: Darla Oates is a living female version of Jeff Buckley, trilling and thrilling with a range so unencumbered it recalls the dramatic vocals of the late singer, with maybe a little Yma Sumac thrown in. Her genre is, well, there isn't just one; bluesy at times, ethereal and folky at others, she's always charismatic, which isn't really its own genre, but maybe it should be.

Oates' style revolves around her voice, as it would and should with any singer, but not every singer has the knack to write songs that harness her raw skill and still let it dip and dive into show-off runs now and again. Regular audience members have called her a virtuoso, and the general opinion agrees in spite of the varied crowd Oates usually draws. ―Merritt Martin, DallasObserver.com
