Free Sample: 90 Proof Twang “Bench Seat”; Concert Thursday

Earlier this year, RiversEdge collaborated with 90 Proof Twang to produce a music video for their song “Bench Seat.”

Concerts return to Thursday nights at RiversEdge on June 11 when the Phillip Fox Band and 90 Proof Twang will be performing on the IBEW Local 648 Stage at RiversEdge.  The Phillip Fox Band will take the stage at 6:30 p.m., followed by 90 Proof Twang at 8:30 p.m.

90 Proof Twang is a fan-favorite at RiversEdge and has been performing at the RiversEdge Concert Series since its inception in 2012.  In fact, 90 Proof Twang was the very first band to perform at the concert series when concerts were still being held on Court Street and under the McDulin Parking Garage in downtown Hamilton.

Named the 2015 “best country band” in the tri-state area by City Beat Magazine, 90 Proof Twang is a Southern Rock/Country Music band from Oxford, Ohio who formed in 2012. If you combined Marshal Tucker, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash in a bowl, added a little Eric Church and Zac Brown, mixed it and baked it with a modern hippie vibe, you would produce 90 Proof Twang.

The band, led by front man, Josh Brock, has created a following in the Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana tri-state area and has been recruited to work with country music mainstays Dave Gibson (singer/songwriter Gibson Miller Band) and Del Gray and Porter Howell (Little Texas). Singer, Josh Brock, released an acoustic album in the spring of 2013 with guitarist Dave Cornett. 90 Proof Twang Released their first ep “Six Pack” May 29, 2014.

Free Sample: Jess Lamb to kick off RiversEdge Series, May 30 (second update)

Change of venue announced on RiversEdge Facebook page:

Due to rain in the forecast, Saturday’s Jess Lamb & The Magic Lightnin’ Boys concert will be held at RiversEdge Arena located on Market Street in downtown Hamilton under the McDulin Parking Garage. Free parking for the concert is available in the McDulin Garage (113 North 3rd Street). Attendees will be completely sheltered from the elements and may park in the garage and enter the concert venue without having to set foot in the rain. Food and beer vendors will be on site. Come party with us at this unique venue.

Jess Lamb performs “Get Out of My Mind” live at 3rd Street Music. Jess Lamb and the Magic Lightnin’ Boys will perform on the ODW/Liferay Stage at RiversEdge Amphitheater, Saturday, May 30. The concert will begin at 6:00 p.m.  RiversEdge Amphitheater is located at 116 Dayton Street, Hamilton, OH 45011.  The concert is free and open to the general public.

Jess Lamb, a native of Cincinnati, is an outstanding, well-established musician in both the local and national music scene.  Perhaps you’ve seen Jess playing at Japp’s in Over The Rhine or maybe you caught her jamming with Harry Connick Jr. on this season’s American Idol.  Jess Lamb is a staggeringly unique modern folk band with a rock & roll soul. This “3 1/2 piece” band features Jess’ haunting vocals that flat out mesmerize & hypnotize listeners. Brother Kenny’s impressive guitar work ranges from silky & subtle to savage & searing. Kasey’s magnificent bass/kick drum combo is not only singular in style, it’s pure musical genius. Together the three create originals that should steal top spots on every college radio playlist. They also twist a few covers here and there into something more interesting and emotional than the original artist ever intended, or possibly even imagined. A must see for all indie music fans, jazz fans & soul searchers. Think “jazz/folk fusion” gone radio. Marvelous musicianship coupled with powerful feminine vocals soaring with such soul they would make the late Janis Joplin either weep with joy or cry in envy.

The talent in this trio strangleholds their crowds. High praise from press, musicians and fans will no doubt slowly push this band to a national level. See them while you can at a local Cincinnati show because that’s where their performance shines brightest. Much like great jam bands, Jess Lamb’s dynamite dynamics are best savored live, up close and personal.
