40 Years of College | Sat, Jan 18, 2014 – 8:00pm

40 Years of College | Sat, Jan 18, 2014 – 8:00pm

Forty Years of College was founded in late 1994 when college band mates Dr. David Larson (keyboard, guitar & vocals) and Mike Stiver (lead vocals & bass guitar) connected with Dr. Roy Goode (lead guitar, bass guitar & lead vocals), Dr. Tony Sanders (guitar, bass guitar & vocals) and Dr. Steve Baker (drums) to form a new musical group in Columbus. Mike is not a doctor, but he does have a graduate degree. So, they named the new group 40 Years of College, reflecting five members times eight years of education each. Dr. Drew Robertson (conga drums, percussion & vocals) joined shortly thereafter, actually giving the band more like 48 combined years of college. Dr Steve Baker had to leave the band in the Summer of 2011 due to a serious neurological disorder. To fill the void, college teacher Kevin Welsh has joined the band on drums and vocals. Like Mike, Kevin is not a doctor, but he does bring 9+ years of college to the total, so the number of years of college per member did not decrease. The latest addition to the band is a very talented bass player, Adam Goode. He is a Music Performance major at Indiana State University, and has lowered the average age of the band members considerably. And though he may slightly bring down the average of college years per band member, he more than makes up for it with his abilities on the bass. They practice weekly and love to play for listeners who enjoy the classic rock of the sixties and...

The SteelDrivers | Saturday, November 16 – 7:00pm

Posted by on Nov 16, 2013 in Events, Featured Event, Live Music | 3 comments

Nashville, Tennessee is a nexus – a point where tradition and innovation intersect, where commerce collides with art. It may be the only town around where salaried songwriters and full-time session musicians are as common as accountants and schoolteachers. Music is the product, and the factories line the street, from the swank Music Row mini-high-rises to the low-slung Sylvan Park bungalows. And only Nashville could give birth to a band like the SteelDrivers: a group of seasoned veterans –each distinguished in his or her own right, each valued in the town’s commercial community – who are seizing an opportunity to follow their hearts to their souls’ reward. In doing so, they are braiding their bluegrass roots with new threads of their own design, bringing together country, soul, and other contemporary influences to create an unapologetic hybrid that is old as the hills but fresh as the morning dew. This is new music with the old feeling. SteelDrivers fan Vince Gill describes the band’s fusion as simply “an incredible combination.” Since the release of The SteelDrivers (2008) and Reckless (2010), The SteelDrivers have been nominated for three Grammys, four IBMA awards and the Americana Music Association’s New Artist of the Year. They were presented the International Bluegrass Music Association’s award for Emerging Artist of the Year in 2009. That same year the band spent a week in Georgia as part of the cast in the movie “Get Low”. The movie, that starred Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray, featured a soundtrack that included four tunes by The ‘Drivers. In 2011 the English pop star Adele began performing the SteelDriver song “If It Hadn’t Been For Love” in her live performances. Her opinion of The SteelDrivers is: “They’re a blues, country, bluegrass, swagger band and they are brilliant.” They have been invited to perform on numerous radio and TV shows ranging from The Grand Ole Opry to NPR’s Mountain Stage to the Conan O’Brien show. You can find out more about The SteelDrivers on their website. You can also become a fan on their Facebook page. For a sneak peek of the SteelDrivers live on stage, check them out...
