Marys Lane is a place... way back in the old country, not owned by Mary, at least not any more. The band Marys Lane is rock, and reel, but most of all, the good times roll. Their Cleveland Rock roots are evident, but they are knee deep in the ghosts of Ireland – not maudlin mind you, but in the typical Kitchen Party made so famous by the Irish – everyone comes, everyone joins in, one way or another, and everyone leaves wishing the night would never end. Their newest release is "The Furey Session" - a crash course two-song collaboration featuring a member of one of Irish music's most legendary and beloved families, Martin Furey. After a friendship blossomed while performing at a summer Irish Festival, the popular High Kings performer hit the studio with Marys Lane for an impromptu Monday morning recording session over tea and coffee. The end result birthed two brand new Marys Lane songs - the enchanting "Wait Awake" and wildly rambunctious "Sleep When I'm Dead'. Given the prolific playing schedule of Marys Lane, it won't be long, till next time, is tonight. The guys were all musicians, and got together one day at Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival; "Hey, we should start a band?". One year later, they met again, and realized waiting was no longer an option. They have been full steam ahead ever since, playing festivals and gigs in an ever-widening circle testament to their skill, their fun, and the passionate following their performances and personalities provoke.

Tom Evanchuck has been playing music since a child. Presently, whether it's him on an acoustic or with his band The Old Money, he turns heads. He belts like a midwestern Otis Redding and croons on guitar like a hybrid Neil Young Leadbelly student. That is the the charm in Tom Evanchuck, he is truly talented and never forgets to cite his sources. Pays credit to the greats while respectfully finding his own voice in the broad and vast American music sound. Now with The Old Money, his voice cuts through a blend of blues, soul and americana rock created by his unique guitar style, Patrick Jenkins' tasteful baselines and Anthony Evanchuck's heartbeat drumming. Show 6pm-9pm

Sunday, April 19th - TOM EVANCHUCK

Tom Evanchuck is a storyteller on stage, weaving through tales of love and heartbreak, friendship and the allure of the Midwest. But this is also a musician that seems born from another era. Drawing on the influences of the likes of Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, Neil Young and even the Beatles, Tom Evanchuck is carving his own way into a formidable niche.

Coming from the Midwest, Tom Evanchuck never strays too far from his roots. You hear it in the raw guitar, and Tom's ability to both croon and crank out a harder song at a moment's notice on stage to provide a true experience, and a chance to envision the early days of folk, blues, or rock 'n' roll.

Tom is built to transform your way of listening to this style of music, always experimenting, always working to establish a mood and presence everywhere he play's. There is real honesty in his music, a certain desire for expression and inspiration from everyone involved, including the audience. With those goals in mind, Tom Evanchuck is ready to usher in the new era of Americana classics.

"She possesses a powerful blues/jazz voice that's forceful, sensuous and as clear as spring water.

Chad Hoffman is a soulful singer/songwriter based just outside of Cleveland, OH. Chad is a passionate and engaging live performer whether he is playing his own material or reinterpreting cover songs. He is first and foremost an incredible singer, with a gritty, soulful voice and a broad vocal range. You don't only hear this in his voice, but you witness the intensity in his face throughout his performances. Beyond his powerful vocals, the next thing many people appreciate about Chad Hoffman's performances is the organic quality of his live sound. He embraces technology without relying on it. Compared to many of his peers who extensively use effects, pitch correction, vocal harmonizers, looping pedals and even backing tracks to synthetically thicken their mix, Chad takes a much more rootsy, DIY approach to his live sound. First, he typically uses minimalistic effects, applying just a bit of reverb to vocals and guitar. Second, he relies heavily on the unique rhythm guitar style he has developed over many years performing on his own, needing to create a thick, upbeat sound with only one guitar. But what really stands out in Chad's live shows is the homemade foot percussion instruments he incorporates into his live rig. These instruments allow him to create an upbeat, dynamic, full-band sound without selling his soul to the demigods of the looping pedal. He has designed and built several of these instruments out of reclaimed materials, with more in the works. Chad Hoffman is also an impressive songwriter and a budding producer. He pens deep and introspective lyrics and his original recordings conjure elements of his many influences, including Cat Stevens, Pink Floyd, the Eagles, Pearl Jam, Beck, Radiohead and Ben Harper. However, Chad also has a knack for taking cover songs of all genres, stripping them down to their essence and reinventing them as his own. In the late 90's, Chad was the leader of several Columbus, Ohio based bands including Aunt Dick, Marblehead and Orchard. In 2001, Chad released his first studio recording, the acclaimed Marblehead EP, "Secrets Locked Away." But in 2003, Chad decided to go it alone and focus on his career as a solo-acoustic musician. He has since honed his skills as a songwriter, while developing an impressive catalog of classic and modern cover songs, which he performs with a fresh new spin. Since then, he has received significant praise for both the way he recreates cover songs, as well as the range of generations and genres he covers. In addition to obvious classic and modern rock songs, Chad covers early rock from the 50's, soul from the likes of Sam Cook and Marvin Gaye, country, old school rap and even Lady Gaga! In late 2006, Chad moved to Rochester Hills, MI, just outside of Motown. Shortly after this transition, he began recording his first solo album, "Listen," which was released in 2012. This album showcases the evolution of Chad's songwriting, with lyrics that parallel a dark comedy combined with unexpected chord progressions and timing patterns. This album also shows off many of the best session musicians in the Detroit area, including a former member of Kid Rock's band. In 2013, Chad realized his dream of becoming a full-time musician. He walked away from his day job and moved back to Northern Ohio, where he grew up. He has since established himself as one of the best solo musicians in the region, performing over 250 shows per year throughout the mid-west. In the works for the near future, Chad plans to build a home studio, write and record more original material, release live recordings, expand his touring throughout the United States and develop a line of foot percussion instruments for sale to the public.

GS Harper "G.S. Harper's New Mexico Dirt is the real deal—just a man, his guitar, and his voice. And what a voice! Whether it's the title track's heartbreaking tale of a tractored-out farmer, the straight-from-the-horse's mouth ups and downs of a road musician's life in "Kids These Days," or the long-lost love remembrances of "Hearts on the Run," each piece is exquisitely crafted and delivered with the earnestness of a man who inhabits his stories as much as he tells them.
