Heart Byrne pays tribute to Talking Heads and David Byrne, who fused pop, funk, art rock, and African rhythms into perhaps the most adventurous, danceable and timeless music to emerge from the new wave movement. HeartByrne picks up the torch where the seminal concert film ‘Stop Making Sense’ left off, breathing new life into the classics and pushing the grooves into uncharted sonic territory. What began as an informal ‘hoot night’ has evolved into a must-see touring act featuring members of the Purple Bee Crew, some of Austin, TX’s most talented musicians.

Little Lies features Fort Worth’s own Danni and Kris celebrating the music of Fleetwood Mac and other popular 70’s hits.

Dallas Jamily Sampler ft. Flow Tribe + Liquid Mirage 12/19

Our Dallas Jamily Sampler featuring Flow Tribe and Liquid Mirage on Thursday, December 19th!

Flow Tribe – New Orleans, LA
[funk | rock | psychedelic]
Feels like: The Motet, Lettuce, Pimps of Joytime

Liquid Mirage – Dallas, TX
[rock | funk | jazz]
Feels like: Talking Heads, Phish, Frank Zappa

About Flow Tribe:
Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band’s onstage chemistry reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. Outfitted for each performance in colorful, carefully selected suits, it’s clear their focus is sharp and the party has begun. This is the work of professional musicians who’ve found their passion, and are living a dream where everyone’s welcome.

Second line brass and Cuban-Caribbean rhythms meld with R&B, soul, rock, and hip-hop beats in high-energy performances that turn every show into a celebration. New Orleans is influence itself, the unparalleled free and easy city weaving its way into track after track of original scores that make up a single definition of sound, which Flow Tribe has dubbed “backbone-cracking music.”

K.C. O’Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Russell Olschner (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) are native New Orleanians and high school pals who’ve been writing music and playing live shows since the band’s inception in 2004. Post graduation, they went their separate ways, but after Katrina, each returned to their hometown, inherently becoming active members in the rebuilding of a community that’s stronger than ever. Flow Tribe may well be the city’s next music ambassadors.

With two full-length albums and several EPs under their belt, the crew is currently building Downman Sounds, a studio in New Orleans East where they expect to cut their next record. The Tribe can be found crisscrossing the US just about every week of the year, from Key West to California, including regular performances at the notable New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest and Voodoo Fest. Look for their next project to be released in early ‘17, a full length album entitled “BOSS” produced by New Orleans’s own Mannie Fresh.

About Liquid Mirage:
Forged in the extreme Dallas heat and humidity of summer 2019 through a series of events that seem too strange to be purely coincidence, Liquid Mirage is a band of four musical brothers with diverse musical backgrounds and a shared dedication to bringing unique and creatively blended music to adventurous ears everywhere. This Texas quartet draws upon a vast spectrum of musical styles to sculpt a mixture of original vocal and instrumental songs that explore many levels of simplicity and complexity. Add to that an enthusiastic focus on incorporating extended segments of collective improvisation and the result is a one-of-a-kind live experience that’s always evolving and always a booty-shaking good time!

Liquid Mirage is comprised of Austin Allen on drums; Neely Rose on electric guitar and vocals; Jordan Watson on electric guitar, mandolin, and vocals; and Colin Young on electric bass and vocals. With influences including rock, funk, jazz, bluegrass, folk, pop, metal, ambient, classical, and much much more, the group’s sound is like a fusion of Frank Zappa, Phish, Talking Heads, and John McLaughlin. Despite their existence still being in its infancy, Liquid Mirage is hitting the ground running with plans to record and release their first Demo/EP by the year’s end.


Jon Stickley Trio & Old Salt Union at Heist Brewery 12/19

Time2Fly Music Presents – Jon Stickley Trio & Old Salt Union at Heist Brewery

$12 Presale
$15 DOS

Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio, who’s deep
grooves, innovative flatpicking, and sultry-spacy violin moves the listener’s head,
heart, and feet. “It’s not your father’s acoustic-guitar music—Instead, Stickley’s Martin
churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted
other genres—all thoroughly integrated into a personal style,” writes Guitar Player
Magazine.
Premier Guitar says, “Stickley’s trio… is not a traditional bluegrass group by any
means… they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats
as effortlessly as the old timey standard ‘Blackberry Blossom.’”

Old Salt Union

Old Salt Union is a string band founded by a horticulturist, cultivated by classically trained musicians, and fueled by a vocalist/bass player who is also a hip-hop producer with a fondness for the Four Freshmen. It is this collision of styles and musical vocabularies that informs their fresh approach to bluegrass and gives them an electric live performance vibe that seems to pull more from Vaudeville than the front porch.

In 2015 they won the FreshGrass Band contest and found the perfect collaborator in Compass Records co-founder and GRAMMY winning banjoist and composer, Alison Brown, whose attention to detail and high standards pushed the group to develop their influences from beyond a vocabulary to pull from during improvisation and into the foundation of something truly compelling in the roots music landscape.

George Porter Jr. Trio feat. Joe Marcinek with Akita atHeist Brewery Charlotte, North Carolina

Time2Fly Music & Cannabuddy Presents – George Porter Jr. Trio feat. Joe Marcinek at Heist Brewery with Akita

$17 presale
$20 Day Of Show

George Porter, Jr. is best known as the bassist of The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. The group was formed in the mid ’60s and came to be recognized as one of the progenitors of funk then called R&B. The Meters disbanded in 1977, but reformed in 1989. Today the original group still plays the occasional reunions but the Funky Meters, of which Porter and Neville are still members, most prominently keeps the spirit alive.

Julian Davis & The Situation At The Vinyl Pi! atThe Vinyl Pi Huntersville, North Carolina

Time2Fly Music Presents – Julian Davis & The Situation at Vinyl Pi

In July of 2018 Julian was Artist at Large for Pickin’ On Picknic where he had the chance to sit in with the Jeff Austin Band. Magic happened that night and starting in 2019 Julian Davis was the lead guitar player with the Jeff Austin Band through June of 2019. With the untimely passing of Jeff Austin, Julian’s band got focused on getting into the studio and working on their upcoming studio LP full of original tunes. To satisfy the requests of fans, the band recorded their live LP: Live from The Ozarks. They will be touring in support of that album as they continue work on the studio LP. The tour schedule ending 2019 and starting 2020 became quite full in the months that followed with a variety of venues and events across 20 states on the tour schedule.
