NotesBATH — Popular Portland-based duo Muddy Ruckus will play on Saturday, Feb. 1, at The Chocolate Church Arts Center. The band will bring its stripped-down rootsy guitar and edgy percussion to the arts center’s intimate annex space, adjacent to the main theater. Muddy Ruckus, comprised of guitarist Ryan Flaherty and drummer Erika Stahl, play what they describe as a “grungy style of railroad indie punk blues.” The genre-bending band has been described by New York Music Daily as “darkly inventive Americana” and Motif Magazine advises that the group is “Real and raw, don’t miss them in the flesh.” The band recently put out a music video for a new single, “Footsteps,” which has racked up over 22,000 views on YouTube and showcases Muddy Ruckus’ unique, high-energy sound. In the midst of the video release, drummer Erika Stahl underwent emergency dialysis and is currently waiting on a kidney transplant. A fundraiser has been launched on Facebook, and attendees at the show on Feb. 1 will be invited to donate to help cover Stahl’s medical expenses. Other upcoming winter events at the Chocolate Church Arts Center include performances by improv comedy group The Doppelbloopers on Jan. 31, Bill Staines (popular folk songwriter) on Feb. 7, a Tropical Valentine’s Day fundraiser party on Feb. 14, and a comedy show with Johnny Ater and friends on Feb. 15. Tickets for Muddy Ruckus in the annex at the Chocolate Church Arts Center are $15 advance or $18 at the door. Tickets for this show, and all events at the Chocolate Church Arts Center, can be purchased at www.chocolatechurcharts.org or by calling 207-442-8455.

Sandy River Ramblers @ Mt. Vernon Community Center
Feb 15 @ 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
VenueMt. Vernon Community Center
Address2 Main St., Mt. Vernon ME
NotesThe Sandy River Ramblers will showcase their Maine-flavored bluegrass songs in concert at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Mt. Vernon Community Center. This will be part of a February Frolix program — an effort to entertain Mt. Vernon residents (and others), especially seniors who might be unable to travel far for entertainment in the winter. The Ramblers, who have played many times in Mt. Vernon over the past 10 years, have released two CD in recent years; both consist of original songs with Maine themes, including such titles as “Slow Down (You’ll Hit a Moose),” “Boots from L. L. Bean,” “Cry of the Loon,” “The North Pond Hermit,” and “Bear in the Barn.” Some are funny, some are serious, and all feature outstanding singing and exciting virtuoso picking. Guitarist Stan Keach, a nationally-known bluegrass songwriter and a member of the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame writes most of the songs. Bassist Julie Davenport and Dana Reynolds contribute stunning vocals. Banjoist Bud Godsoe and fiddler Finn Woodruff are excellent instrumentalists. Admission is free; donations will be accepted. Snacks will be available at intermission. The Mt. Vernon Community Center is at 2 Main St. For more information, call 207-397-2241.

Time NotesBlues Jam Every Sunday 4-8PM
NotesA dynamic band spanning styles from roots to contemporary blues, this driving 4-piece band is sure to scratch your blues itch. The band is fronted by the combo of musical power houses guitarist and vocalist Dave 'Fish' Bottom, and Chris Velletri on tenor sax and vocals. This powerful duo is backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections around consisting of Steve Kaulback on drums and vocals and bassist Marty Lynch. Dave Bottom – Guitar and Vocals Dave picked up his first guitar from a dime store and started teaching himself to play. After flirting with pop music Dave was introduced to blues via the famed British Invasion. That influence underlies the bluesy soloing that Dave brings to his playing; feisty blues steeped in traditional idioms with modern aggression. Dave has performed with LA East, St Amand, Blue Sky Project, Blues Tonight, Maxwell Street and the Voodoo Clowns. Dave is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Marty Lynch – Bass and Vocals Marty has been playing bass since the late 80's when he was in an original Americana band, currently called Comanchero, out of Boston. In 2003 he moved to Maine and began playing with Bonnie Edwards and the Practical Cats. He continues to frequent blues jams in the area and current plays with the Blues Mafia, Bluzology, the Voodoo Clowns., Matt and the Barnburners, Luther James and the River Kings and Bonnie Edwards. He plays a combination of upright electric and regular electric bass. Marty is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Chris Velletri – Sax and Vocals A New York native, Chris started playing the sax in the third grade. His earliest musical influences include: Benny Carter, Illinois Jacquet, Thelonious Monk, Art Pepper, and Zoot Sims. After college, he relegated his horn to the back of his closet. After a thirty-five-year layoff, Chris got sax out in 2017, and hasn’t looked back. Bitten hard by the blues bug, he bought himself a tenor saxophone and joined the Voodoo Clowns. Steve Kaulback – Drums and Vocals The son of a Navy Commander, Steve started his musical journey in Texas in 1963 singing and drumming. After hearing Albert King’ Live Wire/Blues Power album he knew he was hooked for life. His bands have included: Cottonmouth Blues Band, Arlo West and the LA Bluesmen, The Pinecasters, Juke Joint Devils, Continental Shakedown, Mike Hayward and the Blue Lions, Dave Mello Trio, and the Voodoo Clowns. Steve is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame and is recognized by the Maine Blues Heritage Foundation Museum. Steve is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame and is recognized by the Maine Blues Heritage Foundation Museum.
