The Mudflapps: www.myspace.com/themudflapps
No Cover, Bluegrass / Americana
The Mudflapps: A Drinking band with a music problem. And they mean it, with songs about love, whiskey, jail, family problems and more, you’ll fall in love with the Mudflapps the moment you hear them.
A Chicago based band that plays original authentic acoustic music. This five (5) piece band plays often times totally acoustic, as in no P.A.
Reminiscent of sitting around the campfire in the olde tymes, their songs weave a tail of woes, women, whiskey, wild living in the western world and what do after a night at the bar. Acoustic bass, guitars, dobro, & mandolin fit nicely into any corner in any restaurant or bar in America, and worth a listen from the big city theaters to small town pubs.

She has won several singing competions and is the primary writer for Soultree Chicago’s original music. Her Influences include but are not limited to: Whitney Houston, Jill Scott and Chaka Kahn. Myron is a seasoned soul singing tenor. He plays lead Keyboard and serves as the music director and producer for Soultree Chicago. What makes up our unique sound is the talented musicians. On the Bass is Al, he specializes in Soul, Jazz, Blues and Funk. On the Guitar is TC, who is trained in Classical Jazz, Soul, Rock, and Blues. On the Drums is Eddie “aka” George Lopas. Eddie keeps the energy flowing and can hold down any genre on the drums. And in The Red Line Tap we have a Railway Records Showcase, featuring some of Chicago’s finest Americana and roots acts that this city has to offer. Opening the night will be Micki Croisant, your favorite Red Line Tap bartendress and open mic hostess, and Ian Broeker, Red Line Tap sound person extraordinaire, and founder of the roots band the Grizzly Sweets. Bringing you into 2012 will be Bad Raccoon, the duo of Justin Gillam and James Weigel, members of the Mudflapps and Outlaw Family Band.

Railway Records: http://www.railwayrecords.com/
Railway Records is an entirely independent record label based out of Chicago, IL. Born on Chicago’s north side, Railway is dedicated to releasing the best in Americana, roots, folk, alternative country, and rock. The goal of Railway is really two-part. First, we work to discover, develop, and promote exceptional new artists in both traditional and non-traditional ways. One way that we do this is by providing booking and
management services for our artists. Next, we reach out to find the listeners who are being under-served by the current state of the record industry. It is our goal to bring these two groups together.

Micki Croisant: http://www.myspace.com/thegoodnameband
Micki Croisant & The Good Name Band is an acoustic trio born in the heart of Rogers Park in Chicago. The band is known for Micki’s timeless vocals, showcased by her original songs. Prior to The Good Name Band, Keith DaProza (drums) and Davide Pezzini (bass) had experience as a rhythm section, having collaborated on several national tours. When they met up with Micki for the first time, it was like they had been playing together for years… like meeting old friends for the very first time.

Ian Broeker: http://www.railwayrecords.com/grizzly-sweets.htm
The Grizzly Sweets formed in 2006 with singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist Ian Broeker along with drummer Mike Edwards. Lead guitarist Dan Ornduff joined a year later, and bassist Nick Goodman completed the
current four piece in early 2011. Drawing inspiration from singer songwriters such as Neil Young and Will Oldham, Ian began writing and performing his songs as a solo artist in 2000. With each addition, The
Grizzly Sweets were able to evolve their sound, moving comfortably from soft, acoustic folk to hard driving, Neil Young and Crazy Horse inspired rock and roll.

Bad Racoon: http://www.railwayrecords.com/bad-raccoon.htm
Bad Raccoon is a Chicago folk-rock duo consisting of James Weigel and Justin Gillam. Taking a raw, no-frills approach, the music of Bad Raccoon is a meld of blues, rock, folk, and country interwoven with lyrics focused on the condition of human existence. Free champagne toast at midnight, and 3.00 Goose
Island Drafts – 312 and Honkers Ale in the Heartland Café and 312 and Mild Winter in the Red Line Tap. Many, many thanks to our friends at Goose Island

Calendar of Events for Heartland Cafe 12.1.11

New events over at Heartland Cafe!

Thursday, December 1 ? 8 pm
Opera On Tap
http://www.operaontap.com/chicago/
$10.00 Suggested Donation, Opera
Our mission as a not- for-profit 501(c)3 company, is to promote opera as a viable, living and progressive art form deserving a place on the American cultural landscape. In 2005 we created Opera on Tap as a performance outlet for our friends and ourselves. We wanted an opera “gig” in the vein of the New York rock or jazz gig. Freddy?s Bar and Backroom provided us with the opportunity. It was an affordable way to have fun together and work on our music at the same time… Guess what else happened?

We discovered a new audience starved for intense, acoustic, musical experiences! More often than not, opera is perceived in this country to be elitist, pretentious, stuffy and boring. Going to the opera means dressing up, shelling out a lot of money, putting on an air of sophistication and most importantly, not making any noise whatsoever, unless it?s the appropriate time to applaud the diva. There is indeed a tradition of behavior at the ?Opera?: Act classier than you really are. In America, opera is placed on a high pedestal, so high unfortunately that the average Joe is throwing his hands up and spending his money elsewhere.
Saturday, December 2 ? 9 pm
Mathew Tembo
http://www.reverbnation.com/mathewtembo
$5.00, World / Reggae

Mathew Tembo’s music fuses indigenous Zambian vibes with contemporary sounds to create a truly unique form. His latest album, Dadi Mwana, resounds in upbeat Afro-fusion, reggae fueled tracks, featuring lyrics in various languages skillfully married with music performed on handmade instruments – the silimba (local marimba), kalumbu (one-stringed instrument), and kalimba (thumb piano). Mathew is a trailblazer, going against the musical status quo in Zambia of computerized pop. He has shared stages with world music stars 3Ma, Oliver Mtukudzi, and Michael Rose of Black Uhuru and has collaborated with Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, the guitar playing, freedom-fighting, first president of Zambia. Wherever he tours, audiences simply cannot resist the urge to tap their toes, shake their hips, and skank their way out of their seats and onto the dance floors. Outside of Zambia, Mathew has played in Malawi, Kenya, Tanzania, Holland, Denmark, Germany, and the USA. He hosts an annual music festival in Zambia named Sing Our Own Song, aimed at promoting music that uses indigenous instruments. When he is not performing, Mathew enjoys studying, building instruments, teaching, producing music in his home studio, or learning to play new indigenous instruments. Get yourself a copy of his latest CD, Dadi Mwana’, now on iTunes and Amazon. Peace, love and harmony (PLH)

Saturday, December 3 ? 9 pm
Aberration

There were once four saxophonists and a drummer who wanted to make sweet sweet jams. And thus Aberration was born.

Thursday, December 8 ? 8pm
DP and The Alleycats
http://www.myspace.com/dpandthealleycats
$5.00 Suggested Donation, Americana
DP & the AlleyCats combines the many years of Don Pasqualini’s experience as a blues performer playing with many Chicago and Detroit blues greats and the influence of Judy Pasqualini’s love of bluegrass and country music. Judy’s excellent mandolin playing and ability to pick out harmonies adds color to the Don’s flat pickin’ or bluesy style guitar playing.

We fuse our county and blues influences to create our own sound. Judy plays acoustic guitar, mandolin and sings harmonies, Don plays either acoustic or dobro and once and a while brings out the Les Paul for that hard drivin’ elcetric blues sund. Craig on the upright bass completers the trio. We have written much of the material we play that includes some flat pickin’ country-bluegrass instrumental songs as well as old school country and blues.

Friday, December 9 ? 9 pm
Dented Trucks
http://www.artistecard.com/dentedtrucks
$5.00, Blues

Like so many other Blues musicians that leave home, taking a bus or a train, Diane, Ricky and Jenine packed up and in late December 2010 Dented Trucks drove 2200 miles in dark, snowy, icy roads in high winds, halfway across the country to play the only Blues they know in the place most known for the Blues, for the three million people that fill it’s streets, that’s right “Sweet Home Chicago”

Sunday, December 11 ? 8 pm
The Eddie Stevens 3
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Eddie-Stevens-3/117382898293520
$5.00 Suggested Donation, Jazz

The Eddie Stevens 3 was formed by three veterans of the Chicago jazz scene in an effort to bring you classic swinging trio music that is right for any occasion. We hope to bring you sounds that will conjure up memories of some of the classic chamber jazz groups of the past, such as the Red Norvo Trio, Jimmy Giuffre 3 and the early Nat Cole Trio. This is music that is intricate yet swings like mad. Don’t worry, we also like to put our spin on some more contemporary material, as well as our unique take on famous Classical Themes. If the occasion calls for it the Eddie Stevens 3 can be expanded to feature some of the most talented vocal stylists and tasteful drummers on the scene today. We hope to see at one of Chicagland’s top venues in the near future. And don’t forget to ask about Eddie.

http://www.reverbnation.com/stardustbigband
$5.00, Big Band Jazz

One of the most popular big bands in Chicago during the 1980′s and 90′s was the Deja Vu Big Band. Now, several veterans of that group have come together once again to form the Stardust Big Band.
Led by veteran multi-instrumentalist and arranger Jon McGahan, Stardust is dedicated to promoting and continuing the jazz traditions as practiced by Maynard Ferguson, Neal Hefti, Bill Holman, and Quincy Jones among others. This 13-piece ensemble combines inventive writing with vibrant solos by some of Chicago’s finest big band practitioners.
From dancing to casual to concerts ans shows, the Stardust Big Band can perform a myriad of styles in the jazz idiom with the swing and excitement both casual and serious jazz audiences expect and deserve.

$5.00, World / Alternative
KMANG KMANG (K?mayng K?mayng) is a Classical Guitar, New Music, Rock Band founded by Cambodian-American composer Barmey Ung. The name loosely translates to ?children? in Cambodian (Khmer). Our music begins with all original music composed out of historical influences of the classical guitar, particularly from Spain, Brazil, and from various contemporary guitar repertoire. We then take those elements out of their normal context by adding our own interests such as in Rock, Electronics, Folk, and Cambodian music, and also by collaborating in different mediums such as in visual arts and dance

Mt Zion sound System
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mt-Zion-Soundsystem/69586029008
$5.00, Reggae

Founded by singer-songwriter/guitar player Saskia Nassalang, Mt. Zion Soundsystem is a reggae band with the heartfelt mission of spreading wisdom, love, and healing. Saskia, originally from the Milwaukee area, has been performing locally, nationally, and internationally for the past 16 years. While living in Berlin, Germany for five years, she toured extensively in Europe. She also spent time in Israel, parts of Africa, Texas, California and Jamaica. Her voice has an authenticity that brings the wisdom of her lyrics directly to the listener, accentuated by her steady”heartbeat” rhythm guitar playing. The live band has a solid rhythm section made up of St. Patrice Nassalang from Senegal, West Africa on drums and the legendary David Robinson from Jamaica on bass, guitar, and vocals. Yaya Kambaye, master drummer from Senegal, adds the fire on percussion. Azeeza Islam, a jazz vocalist, brings depth and harmony to the vocals. And Rik Massey’s awesome solos and accentuations on lead guitar bring the sound into another dimension. Truly a feast for the senses, heart, and spirit.

James Curley
http://www.reverbnation.com/jamescurley
$5.00, Americana

“The Best Damn Songwriter You Never Heard”
James Curley began writing songs in the mid 70s in his native Philadelphia, influenced mainly by his trips to the Philadelphia Folk Festival and to local clubs like The Main Point, Grendel’s Lair and others. He appeared as a solo songwriter back then, opening locally for other artists of the day, including Artie Traum and Lou London.

Leaving Philadelphia, James played in Denver, Boulder, Eugene and other areas and eventually wound up in Houston, where he was heavily influenced by the Texas songwriter scene there at the time. Moving to Austin in 1979, he immersed himself deeper in the local songwriting scene and performed in venues there until moving to Chicago several years later.
Taking a hiatus from music from 1987 until 1997 to raise a family and start a small business, James took up songwriting with earnest again, and released his first CD – Tom’s Cafe – in 2002, Several tracks continue to get modest airplay on indie, folk and college radio stations, as well as having been synced to film and cable television shows. The CD was produced by guitarist Larry Clyman (Big Shoulders, The Otters, Lonnie Brooks Band) and featured performances from some of James musical friends like Nancy Walker and Sue Demel (Sons of the Never Wrong), Jay Sebastian (Twang Bang) and others.

G. Wright & the Comstock
http://www.myspace.com/gregwrightcountrymusic
$5.00, Country and Western
I have a long performing career having spent many years on the road with my brother with “pop/rock” act The Wright Brothers. We wrote songs together, and had a five piece back up band. We performed around the country doing showrooms at hotels and various entertainment venues (i.e. Disneyworld, Olrlando, etc.). I am a significant fan of current country music. I joined NSAI (Nashville Song Writers Assn. Intn’l), love playing guitar and putting music to the songs I write. On my site most of my songs are performed (vocally) by me. Some however, are performed by demo singers who I engaged for demos to “pitch” to major artists.. I will be adding new songs from time to time, so please check back. I do play out around the Chicago area on occasion with my band

$5.00 Suggested Donation, Acoustic Pop

What started as a trio quickly became a duet when the musical stylings of Melanie Kinley and Sandi Thielman blossomed into the acoustic duet, framing mesa. They have mastered the skill of blending beautifully woven vocal harmonies, in their own musically innovative arrangements. Having emerged from varied backgrounds in music, framing mesa performs their own original work along with the classic to contemporary music of many great artists. They are energetic and enthusiastic on stage, with a unique blend and musical interpretation enjoyed by audiences of all ages.

Classical Revolution
http://www.classicalrevolution.org/
$5.00, Classical and more

Classical Revolution is a collective of young musicians who love playing, listening to and performing classical music. We believe that more people would enjoy classical music if they could experience it in a setting which is more comfortable and familiar. Thus, we bring high-energy and high-caliber classical music performances out of the concert hall and into the community, breaking through the ?fourth wall? between the musicians and audience members, as well as the widely-held perception that classical music is somehow elitist, in accessible and outdated (funny, that one). We bring chamber music to where people actually are! Our goal is to present extremely interactive, high-energy classical music concerts in the most unlikely venues we can think of!

Having recently come off of 2 years touring with the Fareed Haque Group almost exclusively, Tzvi is again leading his own trio playing many new compostions. Currently in the studio recording the upcoming CD “For Simplicity’s Sake” Tzvi is anxious to play the new tunes from the CD for the public.

Since his move to Chicago in 1987, Dave Flippo has lead two unique jazz ensembles … FLIPPOMUSIC and THE DAVE FLIPPO GROUP. Both have recorded CD’s and have played extensively in the Chicago area. FLIPPOMUSIC, formed in 1992, present’s Dave’s “globaljazz” compositions which blend jazz with a variety of world music styles. Dave’s Doctorate and Masters in Music Composition (U. of Michigan/ Eastman School) and his world music studies combine with his jazz background combine to create a multitude of unique compositions which are performed by his quintet. He has also studied Indian music with Lyon Liefer and Muntaz Ali and taken classes with ethnomuicologists Ellen Kester and William Malm.

Opera On Tap

$10.00 Suggested Donation, Opera
Our mission as a not- for-profit 501(c)3 company, is to promote opera as a viable, living and progressive art form deserving a place on the American cultural landscape. In 2005 we created Opera on Tap as a performance outlet for our friends and ourselves. We wanted an opera “gig” in the vein of the New York rock or jazz gig. Freddy?s Bar and Backroom provided us with the opportunity. It was an affordable way to have fun together and work on our music at the same time… Guess what else happened?

We discovered a new audience starved for intense, acoustic, musical experiences! More often than not, opera is perceived in this country to be elitist, pretentious, stuffy and boring. Going to the opera means dressing up, shelling out a lot of money, putting on an air of sophistication and most importantly, not making any noise whatsoever, unless it?s the appropriate time to applaud the diva. There is indeed a tradition of behavior at the ?Opera?: Act classier than you really are. In America, opera is placed on a high pedestal, so high unfortunately that the average Joe is throwing his hands up and spending his money elsewhere

Belly Up’s raging Halloween party with 80’s Heat and a live band! Sat Oct 30 and Sun Oct 31

Oct 12 – The heat is on once again at the Belly Up annual Halloween Heat party. This year’s event is TWO NIGHTS – Sat Oct 30 with DJ sets by 80’s Heat, and Cover Me Badd’s Blasphemous Guitars, and Sun Oct 31 with 80’s Heat and Freeze Frame. Cover Me Badd’s Blasphemous Guitars is a mashup / medley / parody band that has mashed Metal with Whitney Houson, Depeche Mode, the Cure, The Smiths and combined them with the most ridiculously unrelated songs ever!

Freeze Frame is a San Diego based band that rocks your favorite 80s dance hits from Duran Duran to Bon Jovi and Madonna to Pat Benetar. Their lead singers excite the audience by getting them emotionally captured in the music.

Both nights will also feature a costume contest with CASH prizes for first, second & third place! Electronic Accessory company FRENDS will also be on site giving away some headphones, clothes and cash as well.

The Wild Note Café will also be open, and to make dinner reservations please call 858 720 9000. Holiday Inn Express in Solana Beach has also offered a rate of $89.99 per night for Belly Up customers. Please book at least one week in advance, and mention the Belly Up Halloween special.
