As a young man, Bailey left his home in a small town in New Jersey and headed to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of a career in show business.

On December 4, 2017, Ben’s hit TV game show Cash Cab returned to The Discovery Channel. Bailey and his cab are back on duty, returning to the infamous streets of New York City to take unsuspecting passengers on the ride of their life. This time, the 6-time Daytime Emmy-Award® winning series sees unwitting passengers joined by a guest celebrity who will help them rack up the cash. The celebrity lineup this season includes Matthew Perry, Brooke Shields, Scott Bakula, Gilbert Gottfried, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin and Susie Essman. Ben has starred in two specials for Comedy Central. His most recent, Road Rage and Accidental Ornithology, is currently streaming on Netflix. He has appeared in several commercials, on Last Call w/Carson Daly, The Late Show, The Tonight Show, The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Rachel Ray, and virtually every major TV and radio show in the country.

John Berry

Saturday, August 11, 2018 - 8:00 PM

JOHN BERRY BIO

The last two years have been big for John Berry, seeing him release two new album and launching his very own weekly syndicated cable television show (Songs and Stories with John Berry). The singer-songwriter rose to stardom on the country charts of the 1990s with such mega hits as Your Love Amazes Me, Standing on the Edge of Goodbye and She’s Taken a Shine. His annual Christmas tours brighten the holidays for thousands, as does his electrifying rendition of O’ Holy Night. During the 90’s and early 2000’s, John placed 20 singles on the county charts, 6 of which went Top 5, with Your Love Amazes Me, scoring a #1 on the Billboard and Radio & Records Country Chart as well as Standing on the Edge of Goodbye and She’s Taken a Shine earning the #1 slot in Radio & Records. He has earned multiple Gold and Platinum records over the years. John was nominated for the ACM Top New Male Vocalist in 1994, won a Grammy Award in 1996 for his participation in Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel Vol. 1, was nominated for another Grammy in 1995 for his smash hit Your Love Amazes Me and was nominated for the CMA Horizon Award and Top Male Vocalist Award in 1995. In 1997 he was nominated for Vocal Event of the Year (for Long Haired Country Boy with Charlie Daniels and Hal Ketchum) and in 2013 John was nominated for the Mainstream Country Male Artist by the ICM Awards. And thanks to the miracles of modern technology, he even sang a duet with the late, great Patsy Cline. “I love what I do, with a passion not seen in quite some time. I’m hopeful and excited about the future. I love singing and always will. I have a bus, an incredible stage presentation, a great band, hands-on management team and I’m always all dressed up and ready to go.” He and his family moved back to Music City after several years in Georgia, and 2017 saw John pursuing a touring and personal appearance schedule that is more active than ever. Given his wide range of music and number of releases, John is fortunate in that he can book a solo show with just himself and guitar, a small-band acoustic show or a full-band engagement and has more than enough hit material to captivate a crowd and deliver an evening full of musical memories. John’s enduringly powerful performances draw on a lifetime of making music and living life. Born in South Carolina and raised in Georgia, he began playing guitar at 13, performing shows at age 14 and making records at age 19. “By the time I was 17, I knew that music was what I wanted to do with my life”; and he has done it well ever since. Between 1979 and 1990 he recorded and marketed six albums on his own labels. The Graduation Song, which he wrote during his senior year in high school, became a perennial favorite at graduation ceremonies. It appeared on two of his early collections. Those early discs and John’s strong regional popularity attracted attention on Music Row. Capitol Records signed him to his first major label contract in 1992. Berry’s co-written hits A Mind of Her Own and Kiss Me in the Car introduced him to radio audiences in 1993. Then Your Love Amazes Me, What’s in it for Me and You and Only You thrust him to stardom in 1994. Standing on the Edge of Goodbye, I Think About it all the Time, and If I Had Any Pride Left at All were all major hits the following year, with Standing on the Edge of Goodbye earning John the coveted 1995 Grammy nomination. But it was his stunning performance of the title track of the 1995 CD O’ Holy Night that led to his most enduring legacy to date. John began doing special Christmas tours that year and 2016 marks his 20th anniversary holiday concert tour. He has big plans to celebrate and involve the fans like never before for this anniversary celebration. He has also issued three more Christmas-music collections. If O’ Holy Night is all that anyone remembers of me, that’s fine with me,” he comments about his perennial Christmas popularity. “It is a truly inspired piece of music.” Happily, there were more successes to come. The hit Change My Mind earned John a Top-5 spot on the Country music charts in 1996. She’s Taken a Shine became an even bigger hit in 1997. Both fans and the media took note again when There He Goes was released as a 1999 duet with Patsy Cline. In 2002, Berry returned to making records for his own company, Clear Sky Records. Songs and Stories, a double CD was issued that year. In 2003, John Berry released his I Give My Heart collection and its critically applauded wedding anthem Will You Marry Me. The disc also contained his versions of such classic love songs as Time in a Bottle, If, Love Look What You’ve Done to Me, Faithfully, Lady and Let’s Stay Together. I Give My Heart inspired still another popular concert series, The Love Tour. In 2008, Those Were the Days, was released, marking John’s return to mainstream country music. He created his first Christian-music CD in 2011. In 2012, John published the combination book and CD, again titled Songs and Stories. Over the years he has continued to tour steadily. “We just have a great group of fans who welcome us every year. They are always there.” In late 2015 John launched a crowd funded Kickstarter project that proved very successful. Overwhelmed by the fan response, John assembled an all-star studio team and cut both a Country album entitled What I Love the Most and a new album simply titled Christmas and released both in late 2016. Blessed with the ability to make the music he wanted to make (and not what a label dictated) allowed John the time to write and create what many music critics who have heard bits & pieces are saying could be his best, most complete project yet. “I’m excited to have been able to release this new music and bring it to the fans through a new distribution agreement with Sony RED. It’s a new time in the music business and technology allows me to be closer to my fans and interact in new ways. You know, God just keeps blessing me. There are new opportunities coming at every turn.” “With time, I’ve learned that the road to fulfillment is doing what I was called to do, love to do, and then doing it the best I can, regardless of the circumstances. And for me, that is making music and singing for people.” 2017 saw John touring in several configurations (acoustic solo, acoustic trio and full band) including the continuation of his legendary Christmas Tour, marking its 21st year this year. Also, in August of 2017 John launched a new, weekly internationally syndicated television show entitled Songs and Stories with John Berry that explores the songs and stories that changed the lives of his weekly guest. Superstar guests in Season 1 of the show included Billy Ray Cyrus, Billy Dean, Mo Pitney, Neal McCoy, Suzy Bogguss, Collin Raye, Craig Morgan, Mark Wills, Delbert McClinton, Clay Walker and Lee Roy Parnell. Songs and Stories with John Berry airs multiple times weekly to over 105 million homes across the United States as well as the UK and New Zealand on great networks like Heartland Television, The Family Channel, The Country Channel, Phil Mack’s Keep it Country (UK), Country TV (New Zealand) and AMGTV. 2018 has John celebrating his 25th anniversary since signing his major label deal, releasing Season 2 of Songs and Stories with John Berry in April, touring the country in all performance sectors, releasing several new projects and a few surprises.

Blackwater Blues Breakdown

Thursday, August 23, 2018 - 8:00 PM

Live at The Imogene Theatre a 4 band blues jam! Featuring: Lang Holloman & The Soul Bells:

With 22 years of experience, Lang has performed with and shared shows with the likes of Cyril Neville’s(Neville Brothers) The Royal Southern Brotherhood, Chris Thomas King(O’ Brother Where Art’ Thou), Buckwheat Zydeco, David Alan Coe, Asleep At The Wheel, and San Francisco’s music scene performer now Mobilian Lauren Murphy. Lang has been on PBS, Mississippi PBS, NPR, CNN, Sirius XM, and countless festival/theater shows throughout the Southeastern US. Originally from Meridian, Mississippi, where the “Father of Country Music” Jimmie Rodgers was from, Lang continues living and revealing through music/songs what he has coined as the style of “Southern Heritage Music”. 2016 saw great success with the release of the album “Soul Bells”, recorded in Alabama at Admiral Bean Studios with Anthony Crawford (Neil Young, Dwight Yoakum, Steve Winwood, Sugarcane Jane, Willie Sugarcapps), regular solo/duo performances, and Gulf Coast Songwriter Festival songwriter/performer participant. 2017-2018 continued with countless shows from duo to full band performances with his band “The SOUL BELLS”, playing in Kimbro’s Legendary Pickin’ Parlor (Nashville, TN), The Sucarnochee Revue at the historic Temple Theatre(Meridian, Mississippi), radio shows, and a new record “Signal Fades” recorded at Anechoic Studios with Eric King (Todd Snyder engineer). Lastly, his band “The SOUL BELLS” are all seasoned music veterans themselves, all having worked all around the US and internationally for most of all of their lives. They are a big band, often with 6+ members on stage including guitars, organs, fiddle, mandolin, slide guitar, drums, bass, and keys. This combination is a true live experience of all the flavors of the South!!

Brett Benton & Gordon Townsend:

Alabama-born and Southern-raised, Brett “Bad Blood” Benton left the city of Pensacola, FL in 2016 to perform his delta and country style of blues around the country and the world. Currently in the Pacific Northwest, he has played many local, regional, and national festivals and a countless number of venues in just a few years’ time. Most recently he has signed with Seattle’s own Knick Knack Records.

He has shared the stage with many musicians ranging from local players all the way to the likes of Grammy-Nominated Artists Cedric Burnside (also a friend of his, along with his guitar player Trenton Ayers) and Walter Trout, International Blues Challenge award winning Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons and the Selwyn Birchwood Band, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, and West Coast favorites The 44’s Band and HILLSTOMP. Known for his fierce rhythmic finger picking and slide guitar as well as his booming voice, Brett’s raw style is best heard one of two ways: paying homage to its roots with solo, acoustic slide guitar and “stompin’ and hollerin’ ” as Bad Blood himself would put it; and electric alongside drummer and friend Gordon Townsend – whose heavy, relentless and dynamic style of playing really emphasizes what hill country blues is all about… the hypnotic groove that gets folks up and dancing! For either style being played, both remain true to the nature of country blues – a style not played by many – while also retrofitted with grit and a bit of heaviness from the modern times! These two keep the fans moving and grooving!

Spearman Brewers:

The Spearman Brewers are a Gulf Coast based band that plays Panhandle Blues, a rich gumbo of Pre-War Delta, Piedmont, and Country Blues, with healthy doses of Jazz, Gospel, Hokum, Cajun, and Jug music thrown in for flavor. The Brewers were formed in 2001 by Brewmaster Scott Riggs as a vehicle to deliver the sounds of time-forgotten 78 RPM records, playing tunes by the likes of the Memphis Jug Band, Cannon’s Jug Stompers, Mississippi Sheiks, Big Bill Broonzy, Tampa Red, and Robert Johnson. Since those early days the Brew has evolved into an original act, with albums “Won’t You Come Go With Me”, “Rue Blue”, and “Another Round”, as well as EP “One Drink Minimum”, showcasing their homegrown spin on traditional American music.

The Brewers honor the past by bringing it to the present with original compositions based on the time-enduring styles of days gone by. It’s the New Old Stuff, where the bottle hits the string.

Southern Heartburn:

Dynamic Roots ROCK N ROLL style original Bluesy, Soulful music. We Are Raw and Loud, both Musically and Lyrically. Our songs have a lot of meaning and emotion.. because of this they are delivered in a powerful way.

Southern Heartburn’s music is first and foremost steeped in the Deep SOUTHERN Blues styles of the early 20th century. Southern Heartburn’s songwriting mixes this love of heavy, blues and roots music. RAW POWER SOUL.
