Lovell Bradford at Eddie V’s
Jun 21 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

I’m a Charlotte based pianist who grew up and received my first musical influences in the Chicago area. Growing up playing in the church, I have gospel roots that still show in my performances on piano. I studied at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio and began my professional career in the Columbus, Ohio jazz scene. I’ve been lucky enough to have shared the stage with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Slide Hampton, Wes Anderson, and many others. I continue to perform in the Jazz Room Series in Charlotte, an initiative sponsored by the Jazz Arts Initiative and for which the JAI has received a $30,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. My arrangements for and performances with the Lumzy Family in Charlotte are recorded in their CDs, including Satisfied and Live in Charlotte. My most recent musical configuration, The Lovell Bradford Trio, can be heard frequently on the jazz scene in Charlotte, NC. In addition, I am currently Minister of Music at Charlotte’s Mt. Carmel Baptist Church and teach jazz piano at Davidson College.

We incorperate the use of percussion and the harmonica into our show, which we’ve been told gives us a very unique sound for an acoustic duo. We play a wide variety of cover songs, and have been known to bust out very obscure songs such as bel biv devoe’s ‘poison’. We are both songwriters and though we play an majority of cover songs, we still find room to slip our originals in.

Colby Dobbs at Eddie V’s
Jun 28 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

A refreshing blend of rock, jazz, soul and pop music — try some today… 

Colby Dobbs Band (CDB) has been steadily increasing their fanbase, catalog of songs and overall momentum since the group’s inception that brought together an original mix of piano-driven, jazz-influenced pop songs in 2010. Colby Dobbs Band was formed by lead singer/keyboardist Colby Dobbs and bassist David J. Sentendrey after the two had previously worked on a project at a church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both Dobbs and Sentendrey were looking to put their time, energy and talents into an original project that could appeal to a diverse audience and most importantly, produce songs that they could be enthusiatic about — and not just because they were their own. Colby Dobbs Band’s original lineup (and 16 months in-and-out of the recording studio) produced their debut album, ‘The Great Unknown,’ which debuted in spring 2012. The album showcases the group’s ability to write pop music with catchy hooks, while maintaining song structures that can be sophisticated and unique for their era. The group would later release a music video in the summer of 2013 for their single, ‘Cincinnati Queen.’

Jun 29 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

From Grammy, Emmy and Academy-award winning Steve Martin and Grammy award-winning Edie Brickell comes BRIGHT STAR, the five-time Tony Nominated new Broadway musical that the New York Times called ‘a shining achievement.’ Directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie and inspired by a real event, this original musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ‘40s. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. BRIGHT STAR, as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful, is “Broadway’s most beautiful show” (WABC).

The Blues Beatles
Jun 30 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Blues Beatles started during the breaks of the rehearsals of Today – an original band that Marcos Viana, Flavio Naves, Lancaster Ferreira, Bruno Falcão and Fred Barley started in 2010. Marcos, the singer, would invariably pick up his acoustic guitar and start playing Beatles songs. The other members of the band were amazed at how natural the songs sounded, as if he had written them himself. Being blues players the rest of the band started adding their blues twist to these “break songs”. One day Lancaster said: “why don’t we mix these two things we love to play? We could call this Blues Beatles!” Everyone loved the idea and together they started the Blues Beatles in 2013.
