We’ve got an extra special Sunday night lined up here at @jackofthewood for y’all this Memorial Day Weekend — with California’s roots-rockin’ COFFIS BROTHERS taking the stage at 8pm with the only Asheville show on their band’s hotly anticipated East Coast tour!

Raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains of northern California, brothers Jamie and Kellen Coffis were often recruited onstage by their musician mother, instilling an appreciation for energetic, catchy songs that focused on melody, mood, and message. 

"We learned how to sing three-part harmonies with Mom at a young age," remembers Jamie, who later grew into an accomplished keyboardist as his brother sharpened his chops on guitar. When the two began writing songs together in 2007, they found that their shared upbringing — including the music they'd heard on the radio airwaves as kids — had left a lasting mark on their artistic sensibilities.
 
"We have always loved the radio," says Kellen. "You can listen to one station and hear something you've never heard anywhere else, or you can listen to the classic rock station and hear music that hearkens back to yesteryear. Our music does both of those things, too."

Writing songs that blend the woodsy imagery of their native California with universal stories about love, loss, and the open road, the brothers’ music has been praised for its "easy rock vibe that’s actually hip." 

“The Coffis Brothers mix a blend of folk, country and rock with the intensity of personal lyrics into a gritty and often tender harmony of sound…a show that delivers one part Avett Brothers and one part early Neil Young for a full night of dancing and fun.”— SANTA CRUZ WEEKLY

And that’s just what we have in store for you with this special Sunday night party at JACK! $10 cover at the door.

Y’all! ASHLEY HEATH & HER HEATHENS are keeping the Memorial Day Weekend party going at @jackofthewood this SATURDAY night 5/25 starting at 9pm!

With a voice often described as “velvet soul,” Heath’s signature blend of Americana, sultry blues & anthemic rock ’n’ roll arrangements have earned her a large & enthusiastic following from her club & festival appearances nationwide. 

Closer to her home here in Asheville, she’s been recognized across Appalachia for her strong songwriting & vocal skills, having made the WNCW Top 100 list and Mountain Xpress “Best Of” awards several years in a row.

If frequently compared to music influences Bonnie Raitt, Grace Potter & Susan Tedeschi, Heath clearly has a voice all her own, with hope & resilience the underlying themes of many of her songs.

Get here early to grab a choice table & enjoy a festive beverage or two & our delicious, elevated pub fare! $10 cover at the door.
