    THE OLD CHEVROLET SET - Our main attraction ain't no Jet-Set band! Parrish Ellis and Laura Blackley perform old-school country duets (and play guitars) a la George and Tammy, Gram and Emmylou, and Loretta and Conway. Tom Pittman (host of WNCW’s Country Gold) plays pedal steel and the band is rounded out by a solid rhythm section comprised of Stephen Frankel on bass and Nate Pusateri on drums. Vocal harmonies swimming in pedal steel that you can dance to. George and Tammy would be proud.

    Opening the show is D.W. DOUCET - Mainly a punk rock musician throughout his early teens, D.W. found his inspiration for folk and blues music through first listening to Tom Waits while traveling through Death Valley with his father.Eventually finding comfort in playing as a one man band. D.W. found some chains on the side of the road which he wraps around his left foot to stomp. An old 1950's racing stripe suitcase, and an anvil made from a railroad track.. His music is from the heart of ghost towns, howling trains, and seeking peace and redemption by the riverside.

    Jarvis Jenkins Band has since made Asheville, NC it’s mountain home where they have quickly become the tightest and most atomic incarnation of this band to date.

     A darkly honest and wry singer/songwriter out of Charleston, South Carolina, Don Merckle’s tunes have one foot in the foot-stompin' Celtic punk of The Pogues and Dropkick Murphy’s and another firmly planted in the alt-country tradition popularized by Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, and the Drive-by Truckers, capable of both rock and roll growl and smoky barroom introspection. In the past, he's led the popular Appalachian/Irish-indebted outfit Loch Ness Johnny as well as co-fronted the rambunctious alt-country leaning American Gun, and between the two bands he's served as an opening act for Drivin' N Cryin', Lucero, Shooter Jennings, The Avett Brothers, and Cracker. His latest backing band, The Blacksmiths, deftly mix the disparate approaches of his previous acts into a sound and feel that ably captures the ineffable blend of roots music and rock and roll at the heart of Merckle's songs.

    Nikki Talley on Industry Night!

    7pm - No Cover!

    Nikki Talley long time Jack of the Wood & Asheville favorite and extremely talented songsmith hailing from the mountains of western North Carolina, it’s only fitting that her songs are as eclectic as the state that boasts the mountains and the sea. Along with her guitar & clawhammer style banjo, her musical partner & husband Jason Sharp adds resonant lush guitar tones as well as harmonies to round out the duo’s sound.

    “Nikki Talley has traveled a lot of miles these past few years and called numerous places home, but we in Western NC still want to claim her as one of the area’s finest singer-songwriters. Always genuine and down to earth, she and her partner Jason Sharp deliver her latest songs on Out From the Harbor in a beautiful, laid-back style — just in time for a beautiful, laid-back summer.“ -Martin Anderson WNCW Music Director & Host

    "Talley’s always silken, yet adaptable voice is on full display on this album, whispering sweet nothings to the listener on some songs, belting out her passion with full desperate power on others and crooning out her heartache honky-tonk style."    –Bold Life Magazine

    NIKKI TALLEY - WEBSITE - FACEBOOK 


    Don't forget to enjoy our drink and food specials every Tuesday - made for our hard working friends in the service industry but enjoyed by all!

    Woody Pines

    9pm - $8 Entry

    WOODY PINES - If you’re wondering where the music of Nashville troubadour WOODY PINES comes from, look to the streets. It was on the streets as a professionalbusker that Woody first cut his teeth, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly. Heavy rollicking street performances are the key to some of today’s best roots bands, like Old Crow Medicine Show (Woody and OCMS’ Gill Landry used to tour the country in their own jugband), and they’re the key to Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun.                                     Woody traveled all over the streets of this country, road testing his songs, drawing from the catchiest elements of the music he loved and adding in hopped- up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right.
