The Floozies: Crown of Horns Tour with SoDown at Cavalier Theater

Just outside the jazz mecca of Kansas City springs liberal oasis Lawrence, Kansas — separated only by the waves of wheat from the epicenter of the electronic music revolution in Colorado. From Lawrence, it would logically follow that an act could rise to prominence fueled by the swing of Basie, the birth of Charlie Parker’s bebop, and the wildfrontier of electronica. Born in funk and bred in the digital age, live electronic duo The Floozies have burst onto the scene at a time when the industry needed them the most. Brothers Matt and Mark Hill share the stage just as easily as they share a musical brain. Without a setlist, and without a word between them, Matt’s guitar is in lockstep with the thud of Mark’s kick. Endless looping and production builds the raw scenery upon which palm muted chugs, searing solos, and wobbling bass paint their dazzling array of colors. Well versed in everything from Chris Cornell to Kavin sky, the sonic vision shared by the brothers eschews contemporary electronic influences in favor of broader, deeper tastes including Zapp & Roger, Lettuce, and Amon Tobin. That wide-angle view of a century of popular music allows the Hills to remix Toto and The Dead— in the music you can hear reverence for the giants of the past, all the while producing wildly futuristic tunes for the masses to dig now. When the pendulum swung as far as it could away from live instrumentation to laptops, The Floozies rose up to the challenge, swinging as hard as they could in the other direction with neck-snapping, knee-breaking funk so dirty that the gatekeepers stood up, wiped themselves off, and took notice. A bold live show full of sonic exploration and unbreakably deep pocket grooves has landed the brothers on stage with luminaries of the jam world Umphrey’s McGee as readily as electronic elites STS9 and Big Gigantic. Sold out shows across the Country, huge festivalappearances at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, High Sierra, Summercamp, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, Summerset,Bumbershoot, and headlining Red Rocks shows have continued to cement the duo’s ascent. The Floozies are bringing the funk back, and they’re right on time. Doors 7:00/Music 8:00

Your Smith with Baum at Cavalier Theater

Returning for her third appearance at the Cavalier, Minneapolis native Your Smith (aka Caroline Smith), relocated to Los Angeles three years ago after signing to Pulse Recording (DRAM, Miike Snow, Gallant, et. al). Inspired by the history of Laurel Canyon and moving through a city that’s been immortalized in music throughout the ages, Smith concocted her own sound, bringing together the funk / R&B “Minneapolis Sound” of her roots and the classic songwriting of the LA folk heroes.  Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, BAUM, is one of the fastest rising stars in the pop game. Originally from New York, she can be described as a songwriter at heart, living within layers of alternative pop and soul. Her lyrics are self-aware and honest, intelligent but understated. Her natural ease as a performer is undeniable and she has an impressive combination of vocal range and dynamics. Doors 7:00/Music 8:00 $15 adv/$18 DOS All ages

After Alex Williams performed at the Cavalier opening for both Whitey Morgan and the 78's and Shooter Jennings Official, he's making his way back to a room he really loves playing, this time as a headliner. Raised on his grandparents' Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson albums that influenced his playing. He's part of a new breed of upstart outsiders bouncing around Nashville, writing music that at once sounds both modern and traditional, channeling the raw, authentic sound that's made stars out of outlaw singers and red dirt rockers. His live show is a force to be reckoned with, earning him dates with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Hank Williams Jr. Doors 7:00/Music 8:00 $12 adv/$15 DOS All ages

Tony Furtado at Cavalier Theater

Tony Furtado has been a staple on the west coast bluegrass and roots music scene since the late 80s. Originally from California, and now calling Portland home, Tony released his first album on Rounder Records in 1989 and has put out almost 20 albums since then. A two time winner of National Bluegrass banjo Championship, Tony is a virtuoso on both guitar and banjo, and mixes old timey music with modern northwest indie rock, with flourishes of gypsy jazz, Celtic music and Americana. Performing with artists such as Béla Fleck, Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas and Earl Scruggs, Tony's music has been called a descendent of David Grisman's new grass school, as well as being compared to Ry Cooder and TBone Burnett. Joining Tony is his three time national fiddle champion Luke Price, where the two weave telepathic intricate and dream like melodies on stage together. Doors 7:00/Music 8:00 $16 adv/$18 DOS All ages

Pokey LaFarge at Cavalier Theater

Pokey LaFarge grew up around St Louis, and at 17 set off to hitch hike cross the country busking on the streets. He and his band are artfully dodgy ambassadors for old-time music, presenting and representing the glories of hot swing, early jazz and ragtime blues who have made riverboat chic cool again. His music evokes the old-timey spirit of a thousand crackling 78 RPM records, and even when you encounter him face to face, he seems to gaze at you out of a dusty archival photo. Maybe the effect wouldn't be so jarring if LaFarge's music felt inauthentic in some unsettling way. But his albums never feel like cheap exercises in nostalgia, in part because LaFarge directs his old-fashioned sensibilities in the service of sharp, infectious new material. It feels strange to listen to his work on a CD, but his songs aren't stiffly posed wax-museum sculptures. Their energy makes them feel new and alive. Pokey has released 8 albums, two of which have been awarded The Independent Music Awards for Best Americana Album, and Jack White produced an EP in 2011, followed by signing Pokey to his label Third Man Records to release a full length album and invited him to open for him on tour as well as back him on a song for his album. His last two albums have been released on Rounder Records, his most recent last year "Manic Revelations". Doors 7:00/Music 8:00 $20 adv/$25 DOS All ages

Shooter Jennings with Alex Williams at Cavalier Theater

Shooter Jennings lived the first few years of his life in a crib on his parents' tour bus (Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter) surrounded by the likes of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. By age five, he was playing drums. At 8 years old, he began taking piano lessons. He started playing guitar at fourteen and on occasion he'd play percussion in his father's band. At the age of 22, Shooter left Nashville to move to Los Angeles where he played in rock band called Stargunn for 3 years, and was asked to front Velvet Revolver upon the band's breakup.

Trevor Hall at Cavalier Theater

Trevor Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven year old, playing harmonica beside his father in the cradle of the weeping willows of South Carolina, music quickly became his most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally.  At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. There, Trevor was introduced to yoga and certain spiritual practices found in India, which greatly influenced his music and his life journey. During his senior year, Trevor signed a record deal with Geffen Records and his career as a musician formally began.  Trevor quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Callait. Trevor’s quick rise on the scene, however, was ripe with challenges that conflicted with his spiritual life and devotional practice. In order to parallel his life’s path with the messages in his music, Trevor moved into a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When not on tour, he lived as a monk and devoted his days to spiritual practice and service. His involvement with the temple affected his music and his music quickly became his practice.  Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Trevor’s annual trips to India also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. The precious lessons and experiences that he has harvested from his journeys East have moved Trevor to return a service to those whom have colored his music and his life so beautifully. Trevor uses donations collected at his live shows to help support an ashram in Allahabad, India, the home of his Guru, where underprivileged and orphaned boys and girls are given the chance at a better life and a traditional Vedic education.  Trevor’s self-titled debut album debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart at #7 in 2009. It featured the single “Unity,” written and performed with his longtime friend, Matisyahu. Trevor was named one of the Top 20 New Artists by Music Connection magazine and in 2010 MTV named him one of the twenty emerging artists.  His follow up album, Everything, Everytime, Everywhere, was released in 2011 and debuted on the iTunes Rock Chart at #3, iTunes Top Albums at #12 and #8 on Amazon Movers & Shakers. The featured single, “Brand New Day” was used as the music bed for the CBS This Morning Show.  In 2013 at the age of 26, after touring consistently for ten years, Trevor decided to take a break from the stage and go on an extended pilgrimage to India. There he spent many weeks studying under a classical Baul musician born and trained in the villages of Bengal. Trevor returned from his trip and retreated deep into the green mountains of Vermont and Maine where he spilled all that he had learnt onto the page and into song, resulting in the release of Chapter of the Forest in 2014. It debuted at #3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart and #17 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart.  His latest album, KALA, written in Hawaii and recorded in LA, was released August 21, 2015. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. KALA marks the final chapter in a trilogy that chronicles Trevor’s spiritual and musical journey over the past few years. “It’s a graceful amalgam of styles by a musician who loves to embrace the music of the world.” (Popmatters)

Willie Watson with Katie Pruitt & Andy Hughes at Cavalier Theater

For nearly two decades, Willie Watson, an original founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show, has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. He’s a folksinger in the classic sense: a singer, storyteller, and traveller, with a catalog of songs that bridge the gap between the past and present. Southern gospel. Railroad songs. Delta blues. Irish fiddle tunes. Appalachian music are all a part of the full range of Willie Watson’s artistry. Since parting ways with his former band to become a solo act, this multiple instrumentalist has frequently partnered with Gillian Welch and David Rawlings to perform as a trio, as well as putting out two albums, his latest "Folksinger Vol. 2" that came out in late 2017, which he is touring to promote. Katie Pruitt is a young, talented, and fiercely passionate songwriter within Nashville’s music community. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Katie wholeheartedly embraced her new city and for the past three years has swiftly built a reputation around her dynamic vocals and soulful, bluesy sound. Andy Hughes is a beloved native son to the area and has long been a crowd favorite fronting his band TUGG. With his solo debut release in 2017, "Heartland and Heartaches", he expanded his repertoire for as a songwriter towards a more introspective Americana folk sound.

Dessa with MONAKR at Cavalier Theater

Singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations—her résumé as a musician includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury Festival (official), co-compositions for 100-voice choir, performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, and a top-200 entry on the Billboard charts for her album Parts of Speech. She contributed to the #1 album The Hamilton Mixtape; her track, "Congratulations," notched over 5 million streams. As a writer, she’s been published by The New York Times (Magazine), broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio, published two literary collections of her own, and is set to release her first hardcover collection with Dutton Books in the fall of 2018. She's been covered by Pitchfork, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal amongst others. The Los Angeles Times says Dessa “sounds like no one else.” The Utne Reader calls her a “one-woman powerhouse.” On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by a ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor. Dessa’s third full-length album Chime (Doomtree Records) was listed by NPR as one of 2018’s most anticipated albums. In March, she embarks on a world tour through the US, Europe, and Asia. Chicago-based MONAKR formed in 2014 as a collaboration between former members of indie pop band Hey Champ (Saam Hagshenas and Jonathan Marks) and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Matthew Santos. Largely inspired by the Peter Gabriel flavored electro-pop-rock of the ’80s, MONAKR’s music couples with dark R&B and the moody trip-hop of the late ’90s.

Midnight River Choir at Cavalier Theater

The story of Midnight River Choir is proof that sometimes great bands just happen. One night, four strangers ended up on a late night float trip down the Guadalupe River. As they made their way down the river singing songs, the beautiful harmonies floated into the heads of sleeping campers. The next morning, the boys overheard a man telling a friend that he was “awakened by a midnight river choir.” That was all it took. They are not related to each other. They are not a pre-arranged group. They are not session players. They did not meet at a writing appointment set up by executives sporting spray-on tans and wearing their shirts unbuttoned to their belly buttons. Quite the contrary, in fact. Midnight River Choir is one of the most organically grown bands traveling the highways these days. Drawn together out of mutual respect for each others’ talents and the common thread of passion for creating soulful music (and the Guadalupe River) they have established themselves as a “must see” in markets across the United States.

Scarface saw talent in him, and persuaded him to become a solo act, leading to Dev's first solo album, "The Dude", back in 1998. Since then, Devin has worked with a slew of the top rappers in the game, from Snoop Dogg to André 3000 to Lil Wayne, to just name a few. For a man who has been in the game longer than some rappers have lived, the Houston native has consistently put in quality work, and is now on his 9th album, "Acoustic Levitation" that was released in 2017 after taking a three year break from hip hop.

A longtime acquaintance of John Prine and Walker, Sykes began to work with Snider to help advance his career. Prine hired him as an assistant and then invited him to open shows. In time, Buffett heard Snider's demo tapes and signed him to his own label. On his music, Snider has said "I was just trying to come up with the best ... most open hearted ... well-thought-out lyrics I could come up with. I wanted every song to be sad and funny at the same time, vulnerable and entertaining at the same time, personal and universal at the same time. I wanted every song to be as uniquely written as possible and then I wanted to perform them in a studio loose and rugged and hopefully as uniquely as I could.

For 17 years, the Hackensaw Boys have plowed the asphalt, bringing their raw, gritty version of American roots music to the venues and streets that originally inspired them. Born in Virginia, along the same routes as fellow road warriors/street buskers Old Crow Medicine Show, the Hackensaw Boys have at times operated more as a collective than a band, sometimes boasting up to twenty members. What’s kept them together is a burning hot vision of American roots music brought kicking and screaming into a new age, fueled as much by a rowdy punk spirit as by the traditional masters that first inspired them.Tickets also available at People's Food Co-op and Deaf Ear Records Doors 7:00/Show 8:00$12 adv/$15 DOSAll ages

Sunny Sweeney at Cavalier Theater

Sunny Sweeney from Austin, Texas brings wit and honesty into her confessional, complex songwriting for grown-ups, still whiskey-drenched and honk-tonk-ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion, and longing for a child: it’s all here, raw and real. It seem like the world is more open now than ever before to smart women singing smart country. It’s about time. Sweeney is a veteran of the trade, and has logged her miles the old-school way. A three-year residency at the Poodle Dog Lounge in Austin––“It was a dump,” she says. “They didn’t even have a credit card machine or liquor license.”––along with improv and stand-up comedy experience went a long way toward teaching her how to hold a room of cynical drunks in the palm of her hand. The mastery of holes in the wall, major label stint, and serious songwriting chops make Sweeney something of a rarity: an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms. Or, as Rolling Stone put it in September 2016: “Sweeney is one of the rare entertainers who can hold her own at CMA Fest as well as the Americana Fest.” Her appearance at the Cavalier will come fresh off a tour with Cody Jinks and right before a run of shows opening for Miranda Lambert that illustrates Rolling Stone's point.

Whitey Morgan with Alex Williams at Cavalier Theater

Hailing from the hard hit, economically depressed Flint, Michigan that has shaped his songwriting, Whitey Morgan and the 78's play a road tested and whiskey soaked brand of outlaw honky tonk country that is dirty and dangerous. Since forming in 2005 and cutting their teeth in the Detroit music scene, they quickly became established as a live band to be reckoned with, playing on average 200 shows a year while releasing 3 albums. Alex Williams was raised on his grandparents' Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson albums that influenced his playing. He's part of a new breed of upstart outsiders bouncing around Nashville, writing music that at once sounds both modern and traditional, channeling the raw, authentic sound that's made stars out of outlaw singers and red dirt rockers. His live show is a force to be reckoned with, earning him dates with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Hank Williams Jr..

Grateful Dead Experience: The Schwag at Cavalier Theater

The Schwag is a band dedicated to carrying on the music and the vibe of the legendary Grateful Dead. Founded in 1991 as a local St. Louis-based Dead tribute, the group began touring after the 1995 death of Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, and has played more than 2,500 shows in 18 states, with an average of 150 shows a year, and a working repertoire of 200 songs. In 1997, The Schwag began their own self-produced festivals, Schwagstocks. After holding the events at progressively larger venues in Missouri, in 2004 bassist and founding member Jimmy Tebeau and his wife Tiffany Tebeau purchased Camp Zoe, a 330-acre former youth camp near Salem, Mo., in the heart of the Ozarks, to serve as a permanent home for Schwagstock. In 2005, Schwagstocks and other festivals at Zoe drew more than 30,000 people to the site, and the first event of 2006, Schwagstock 29, drew a crowd of more than 7,500. Besides music, festival-goers enjoy swimming in the creek that runs through the property, canoe trips in the nearby Ozark National Scenic Riverways, on-site camping, nightly drum circles and bonfires, and shopping from the vendors on the site's "Shakedown Street." Besides bassist-vocalist Tebeau, the group's members are Stu Allen, guitar and vocals; and Brian Sigmund, drums. Several Schwag members have extensive jazz training, and the band's live performances emphasize improvisation and spontaneity. Like the Dead, The Schwag operates without set lists. Its only rules are to avoid repeating songs from recent shows and to give high-energy performances that encourage dancing and good vibes. The Schwag is an established group that has attracted some prominent members of the jam-band community to sit in on their sets, including Merl Saunders, the late Johnny Johnson, Butch Trucks of the Allman Brothers, Mike Gordon of Phish, Fred Tackett of Little Feat, Vince Herman and Drew Emmit of Leftover Salmon; Bill Nershi, Michael Kang, Michael Travis, and Jason Hann of String Cheese Incident; Melvin Seals of JGB, Scott Law, Pete Sears, Chuck Berry, the late Vince Welnick, and many other great players.

The Floozies: Crown of Horns Tour with SoDown at Cavalier Theater




Cavalier Theater Tue, Nov 13th 2018
8:00 PM — 11:55 PM
Event Ended

Just outside the jazz mecca of Kansas City springs liberal oasis Lawrence, Kansas — separated only by the waves of wheat from the epicenter of the electronic music revolution in Colorado. From Lawrence, it would logically follow that an act could rise to prominence fueled by the swing of Basie, the birth of Charlie Parker’s bebop, and the wildfrontier of electronica. Born in funk and bred in the digital age, live electronic duo The Floozies have burst onto the scene at a time when the industry needed them the most.

Brothers Matt and Mark Hill share the stage just as easily as they share a musical brain. Without a setlist, and without a word between them, Matt’s guitar is in lockstep with the thud of Mark’s kick. Endless looping and production builds the raw scenery upon which palm muted chugs, searing solos, and wobbling bass paint their dazzling array of colors.

Well versed in everything from Chris Cornell to Kavin sky, the sonic vision shared by the brothers eschews contemporary electronic influences in favor of broader, deeper tastes including Zapp & Roger, Lettuce, and Amon Tobin. That wide-angle view of a century of popular music allows the Hills to remix Toto and The Dead— in the music you can hear reverence for the giants of the past, all the while producing wildly futuristic tunes for the masses to dig now.

When the pendulum swung as far as it could away from live instrumentation to laptops, The Floozies rose up to the challenge, swinging as hard as they could in the other direction with neck-snapping, knee-breaking funk so dirty that the gatekeepers stood up, wiped themselves off, and took notice. A bold live show full of sonic exploration and unbreakably deep pocket grooves has landed the brothers on stage with luminaries of the jam world Umphrey’s McGee as readily as electronic elites STS9 and Big Gigantic. Sold out shows across the Country, huge festivalappearances at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, High Sierra, Summercamp, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, Summerset,Bumbershoot, and headlining Red Rocks shows have continued to cement the duo’s ascent.

The Floozies are bringing the funk back, and they’re right on time.

Returning for her third appearance at the Cavalier, Minneapolis native Your Smith (aka Caroline Smith), relocated to Los Angeles three years ago after signing to Pulse Recording (DRAM, Miike Snow, Gallant, et. al). Inspired by the history of Laurel Canyon and moving through a city that’s been immortalized in music throughout the ages, Smith concocted her own sound, bringing together the funk / R&B “Minneapolis Sound” of her roots and the classic songwriting of the LA folk heroes. 

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, BAUM, is one of the fastest rising stars in the pop game. Originally from New York, she can be described as a songwriter at heart, living within layers of alternative pop and soul. Her lyrics are self-aware and
honest, intelligent but understated. Her natural ease as a performer is undeniable and she has an impressive combination of vocal range and dynamics.

Tony Furtado has been a staple on the west coast bluegrass and roots music scene since the late 80s. Originally from California, and now calling Portland home, Tony released his first album on Rounder Records in 1989 and has put out almost 20 albums since then. A two time winner of National Bluegrass banjo Championship, Tony is a virtuoso on both guitar and banjo, and mixes old timey music with modern northwest indie rock, with flourishes of gypsy jazz, Celtic music and Americana. Performing with artists such as Béla Fleck, Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas and Earl Scruggs, Tony's music has been called a descendent of David Grisman's new grass school, as well as being compared to Ry Cooder and TBone Burnett. Joining Tony is his three time national fiddle champion Luke Price, where the two weave telepathic intricate and dream like melodies on stage together.

Pokey LaFarge grew up around St Louis, and at 17 set off to hitch hike cross the country busking on the streets. He and his band are artfully dodgy ambassadors for old-time music, presenting and representing the glories of hot swing, early jazz and ragtime blues who have made riverboat chic cool again. His music evokes the old-timey spirit of a thousand crackling 78 RPM records, and even when you encounter him face to face, he seems to gaze at you out of a dusty archival photo. Maybe the effect wouldn't be so jarring if LaFarge's music felt inauthentic in some unsettling way. But his albums never feel like cheap exercises in nostalgia, in part because LaFarge directs his old-fashioned sensibilities in the service of sharp, infectious new material. It feels strange to listen to his work on a CD, but his songs aren't stiffly posed wax-museum sculptures. Their energy makes them feel new and alive. Pokey has released 8 albums, two of which have been awarded The Independent Music Awards for Best Americana Album, and Jack White produced an EP in 2011, followed by signing Pokey to his label Third Man Records to release a full length album and invited him to open for him on tour as well as back him on a song for his album. His last two albums have been released on Rounder Records, his most recent last year "Manic Revelations".

Trevor Hall at Cavalier Theater




Cavalier Theater Thu, Jun 14th 2018
8:00 PM — 11:00 PM
Event Ended

Trevor Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven year old, playing harmonica beside his father in the cradle of the weeping willows of South Carolina, music quickly became his most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally. 


At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. There, Trevor was introduced to yoga and certain spiritual practices found in India, which greatly influenced his music and his life journey. During his senior year, Trevor signed a record deal with Geffen Records and his career as a musician formally began. 

Trevor quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Callait. Trevor’s quick rise on the scene, however, was ripe with challenges that conflicted with his spiritual life and devotional practice. In order to parallel his life’s path with the messages in his music, Trevor moved into a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When not on tour, he lived as a monk and devoted his days to spiritual practice and service. His involvement with the temple affected his music and his music quickly became his practice. 

Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Trevor’s annual trips to India also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. The precious lessons and experiences that he has harvested from his journeys East have moved Trevor to return a service to those whom have colored his music and his life so beautifully. Trevor uses donations collected at his live shows to help support an ashram in Allahabad, India, the home of his Guru, where underprivileged and orphaned boys and girls are given the chance at a better life and a traditional Vedic education. 

Trevor’s self-titled debut album debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart at #7 in 2009. It featured the single “Unity,” written and performed with his longtime friend, Matisyahu. Trevor was named one of the Top 20 New Artists by Music Connection magazine and in 2010 MTV named him one of the twenty emerging artists. 

His follow up album, Everything, Everytime, Everywhere, was released in 2011 and debuted on the iTunes Rock Chart at #3, iTunes Top Albums at #12 and #8 on Amazon Movers & Shakers. The featured single, “Brand New Day” was used as the music bed for the CBS This Morning Show. 

In 2013 at the age of 26, after touring consistently for ten years, Trevor decided to take a break from the stage and go on an extended pilgrimage to India. There he spent many weeks studying under a classical Baul musician born and trained in the villages of Bengal. Trevor returned from his trip and retreated deep into the green mountains of Vermont and Maine where he spilled all that he had learnt onto the page and into song, resulting in the release of Chapter of the Forest in 2014. It debuted at #3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart and #17 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart. 

His latest album, KALA, written in Hawaii and recorded in LA, was released August 21, 2015. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. KALA marks the final chapter in a trilogy that chronicles Trevor’s spiritual and musical journey over the past few years. “It’s a graceful amalgam of styles by a musician who loves to embrace the music of the world.” (Popmatters)

Cavalier Theater Thu, Apr 26th 2018
8:00 PM — 11:00 PM
Event Ended

For nearly two decades, Willie Watson, an original founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show, has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. He’s a folksinger in the classic sense: a singer, storyteller, and traveller, with a catalog of songs that bridge the gap between the past and present. Southern gospel. Railroad songs. Delta blues. Irish fiddle tunes. Appalachian music are all a part of the full range of Willie Watson’s artistry. Since parting ways with his former band to become a solo act, this multiple instrumentalist has frequently partnered with Gillian Welch and David Rawlings to perform as a trio, as well as putting out two albums, his latest "Folksinger Vol. 2" that came out in late 2017, which he is touring to promote.

Katie Pruitt is a young, talented, and fiercely passionate songwriter within Nashville’s music community. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Katie wholeheartedly embraced her new city and for the past three years has swiftly built a reputation around her dynamic vocals and soulful, bluesy sound.

Andy Hughes is a beloved native son to the area and has long been a crowd favorite fronting his band TUGG. With his solo debut release in 2017, "Heartland and Heartaches", he expanded his repertoire for as a songwriter towards a more introspective Americana folk sound.

The Cavalier Theater in conjunction with Azara welcome in Manic Focus!!

Manic Focus is the beat-bumpin’ project of John “JmaC” McCarten, a Chicago-based electronic music producer hailing from the Twin Cities. A multi-dimensional artist with a rowdy style unbound to any one genre, Manic Focus transcends sound waves by fusing soulful blues with heavy-hitting bass, creating a resonating tone that’s entirely his own. Over the last 6 years, JmaC has released five full-length albums, each one a new evolution in sound and approach. He has also completed a slew of official remixes for artists such as GRiZ, The Floozies, Lettuce, Minnesota and Pretty Lights, and released several works with Pretty Lights Music veterans Break Science.

On the road, JmaC has been steadily building his live performance to include additional musicians and elements of production. Jacob Barinholtz is now a mainstay on the drums, and other musical co-conspirators join the two on select dates around the country. He’s also been known to incorporate surprise guests such as Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli, GRiZ, The Floozies’ Matt Hill, and Russ Liquid, to name a few. Occasionally, fans are treated to the rare live fusion of Break Science and Manic Focus, taking the stage as Manic Science. Recent live highlights include performances at The Gorge Amphitheater in WA and Red Rocks Amphitheater in CO, both dates as support for Pretty Lights. Summer 2017 has seen performances from Manic Focus at Summer Camp Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, and Summer Set Music Festival, to name a few.

Singer, rapper, and writer Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations—her résumé as a musician includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury Festival (official), co-compositions for 100-voice choir, performances with the Minnesota Orchestra, and a top-200 entry on the Billboard charts for her album Parts of Speech. She contributed to the #1 album The Hamilton Mixtape; her track, "Congratulations," notched over 5 million streams. As a writer, she’s been published by The New York Times (Magazine), broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio, published two literary collections of her own, and is set to release her first hardcover collection with Dutton Books in the fall of 2018. She's been covered by Pitchfork, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal amongst others. The Los Angeles Times says Dessa “sounds like no one else.” The Utne Reader calls her a “one-woman powerhouse.” On the stage and on the page, her style is defined by a ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candor. Dessa’s third full-length album Chime (Doomtree Records) was listed by NPR as one of 2018’s most anticipated albums. In March, she embarks on a world tour through the US, Europe, and Asia.

Chicago-based MONAKR formed in 2014 as a collaboration between former members of indie pop band Hey Champ (Saam Hagshenas and Jonathan Marks) and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Matthew Santos. Largely inspired by the Peter Gabriel flavored electro-pop-rock of the ’80s, MONAKR’s music couples with dark R&B and the moody trip-hop of the late ’90s.

Midnight River Choir at Cavalier Theater




Cavalier Theater Sat, Mar 24th 2018
8:00 PM — 11:00 PM
Event Ended

The story of Midnight River Choir is proof that sometimes great bands just happen. One night, four strangers ended up on a late night float trip down the Guadalupe River. As they made their way down the river singing songs, the beautiful harmonies floated into the heads of sleeping campers. The next morning, the boys overheard a man telling a friend that he was “awakened by a midnight river choir.” That was all it took.

They are not related to each other. They are not a pre-arranged group. They are not session players. They did not meet at a writing appointment set up by executives sporting spray-on tans and wearing their shirts unbuttoned to their belly buttons. Quite the contrary, in fact. Midnight River Choir is one of the most organically grown bands traveling the highways these days. Drawn together out of mutual respect for each others’ talents and the common thread of passion for creating soulful music (and the Guadalupe River) they have established themselves as a “must see” in markets across the United States.

Devin The Dude is regularly regarded as Houston hip hop's "best kept secret". A critically-acclaimed rapper appealing to the smoker's set, Devin The Dude has amassed a loyal fanbase in the underground hip-hop scene for over two decades, starting off as one-third of the Rap-A-Lot Records group, The Odd Squad. Scarface saw talent in him, and persuaded him to become a solo act, leading to Dev's first solo album, "The Dude", back in 1998. Since then, Devin has worked with a slew of the top rappers in the game, from Snoop Dogg to André 3000 to Lil Wayne, to just name a few. For a man who has been in the game longer than some rappers have lived, the Houston native has consistently put in quality work, and is now on his 9th album, "Acoustic Levitation" that was released in 2017 after taking a three year break from hip hop.

A longtime acquaintance of John Prine and Walker, Sykes began to work with Snider to help advance his career. Prine hired him as an assistant and then invited him to open shows. In time, Buffett heard Snider's demo tapes and signed him to his own label. On his music, Snider has said "I was just trying to come up with the best ... most open hearted ... well-thought-out lyrics I could come up with. I wanted every song to be sad and funny at the same time, vulnerable and entertaining at the same time, personal and universal at the same time. I wanted every song to be as uniquely written as possible and then I wanted to perform them in a studio loose and rugged and hopefully as uniquely as I could.

For 17 years, the Hackensaw Boys have plowed the asphalt, bringing their raw, gritty version of American roots music to the venues and streets that originally inspired them. Born in Virginia, along the same routes as fellow road warriors/street buskers Old Crow Medicine Show, the Hackensaw Boys have at times operated more as a collective than a band, sometimes boasting up to twenty members. What’s kept them together is a burning hot vision of American roots music brought kicking and screaming into a new age, fueled as much by a rowdy punk spirit as by the traditional masters that first inspired them.

Sunny Sweeney from Austin, Texas brings wit and honesty into her confessional, complex songwriting for grown-ups, still whiskey-drenched and honk-tonk-ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion, and longing for a child: it’s all here, raw and real. It seem like the world is more open now than ever before to smart women singing smart country. It’s about time. Sweeney is a veteran of the trade, and has logged her miles the old-school way. A three-year residency at the Poodle Dog Lounge in Austin––“It was a dump,” she says. “They didn’t even have a credit card machine or liquor license.”––along with improv and stand-up comedy experience went a long way toward teaching her how to hold a room of cynical drunks in the palm of her hand. The mastery of holes in the wall, major label stint, and serious songwriting chops make Sweeney something of a rarity: an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms. Or, as Rolling Stone put it in September 2016: “Sweeney is one of the rare entertainers who can hold her own at CMA Fest as well as the Americana Fest.” Her appearance at the Cavalier will come fresh off a tour with Cody Jinks and right before a run of shows opening for Miranda Lambert that illustrates Rolling Stone's point.

Alex Williams was raised on his grandparents' Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson albums that influenced his playing. He's part of a new breed of upstart outsiders bouncing around Nashville, writing music that at once sounds both modern and traditional, channeling the raw, authentic sound that's made stars out of outlaw singers and red dirt rockers.

Grateful Dead Experience: The Schwag at Cavalier Theater




Cavalier Theater Sat, Feb 10th 2018
8:00 PM — 11:30 PM
Event Ended

The Schwag is a band dedicated to carrying on the music and the vibe of the legendary Grateful Dead. Founded in 1991 as a local St. Louis-based Dead tribute, the group began touring after the 1995 death of Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, and has played more than 2,500 shows in 18 states, with an average of 150 shows a year, and a working repertoire of 200 songs.

In 1997, The Schwag began their own self-produced festivals, Schwagstocks. After holding the events at progressively larger venues in Missouri, in 2004 bassist and founding member Jimmy Tebeau and his wife Tiffany Tebeau purchased Camp Zoe, a 330-acre former youth camp near Salem, Mo., in the heart of the Ozarks, to serve as a permanent home for Schwagstock.

In 2005, Schwagstocks and other festivals at Zoe drew more than 30,000 people to the site, and the first event of 2006, Schwagstock 29, drew a crowd of more than 7,500. Besides music, festival-goers enjoy swimming in the creek that runs through the property, canoe trips in the nearby Ozark National Scenic Riverways, on-site camping, nightly drum circles and bonfires, and shopping from the vendors on the site's "Shakedown Street." Besides bassist-vocalist Tebeau, the group's members are Stu Allen, guitar and vocals; and Brian Sigmund, drums. Several Schwag members have extensive jazz training, and the band's live performances emphasize improvisation and spontaneity. Like the Dead, The Schwag operates without set lists. Its only rules are to avoid repeating songs from recent shows and to give high-energy performances that encourage dancing and good vibes.

The Schwag is an established group that has attracted some prominent members of the jam-band community to sit in on their sets, including Merl Saunders, the late Johnny Johnson, Butch Trucks of the Allman Brothers, Mike Gordon of Phish, Fred Tackett of Little Feat, Vince Herman and Drew Emmit of Leftover Salmon; Bill Nershi, Michael Kang, Michael Travis, and Jason Hann of String Cheese Incident; Melvin Seals of JGB, Scott Law, Pete Sears, Chuck Berry, the late Vince Welnick, and many other great players.

After paying his dues for 4 years, his debut album in 2010 saw two Top Twenty singles. With two Top 10 albums, 6 Top 40 singles and 3 Top 20 radio singles to his credit, his latest album "Changes: Vol. II" was realeased in April of this year and has seen new songs getting radio airplay.
