The SpeakerBox Experiment joins the musical styles of writer, producer/composer, singer/songwriter and drummer Nick Mercadel; keyboardist, songwriter, producer/composer Jason Hodge; singer, producer/composer and keyboardist Marcus Doucette; singer/songwriter Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph; guitarists/bassists Ken & Shemaiah Turner and drummer Lemuel “Lem” Clark.

Ogden After Hours presents Andre Bohren

DATE
Thu, May 14, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Andre Bohren is a lifelong musician. From early obsessions with Peruvian flutes and ‘50’s Rock ‘n Roll to his discovery of classical piano and syncopated funk, Bohren is constantly broadening his musical horizons. At the age of 16, he performed Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra as the featured piano soloist and was soon touring the U.S. and Europe with his father, American roots musician Spencer Bohren. After a decade of near complete focus on piano, which included five years of study under Dr. Janet Ahlquist and two years under Dr. John Murphy at Loyola University in New Orleans, Andre Bohren founded the eclectic funk-rock band Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes (JSDN), this time manning the drum chair.

Ogden After Hours presents Susan Cowsill

DATE
Fri, May 15, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

Susan Cowsill first entered the pop-culture scene at the age of eight as the youngest member of the ’60s musical family the Cowsills, who graced the AM airwaves with such enduring pop hits as “Hair” and “The Rain, the Park and Other Things,” and who were the real-life inspiration for TV’s famed Partridge Family.
In adulthood, Susan Cowsill has emerged as a singer-songwriter of singular emotional insight and musical resonance, first as a key member of beloved alt-roots-pop supergroup the Continental Drifters and more recently on her widely acclaimed second solo album Lighthouse. Lighthouse’s soulful, personally-charged songcraft reflects the artist’s experiences during a wrenching period which saw Cowsill dealing with the deaths of her brothers Billy and Barry, and the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, which claimed most of her and her family’s material possessions and temporarily displaced them from Susan’s adopted hometown of New Orleans.

Ogden After Hours presents Mississippi Rail Company

DATE
Thu, May 28, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

The aim of Mississippi Rail Company is moving music forward via a vehicle of the past. Their music is an experiment in irony, embracing New Orleans roots music, rock 'n roll, folk, and blues traditions while refusing to fall subject to any of their claims. Their music breaks wholly new ground, rejecting any pull toward a simple re-hash of past musical genres. There is nothing tired, tried, or weary about their sound as it re-thinks (and re-shapes) a century of American musical traditions. In short, it manages to sound as if it could have been produced in 1920, even as its content and structure are decades ahead of its time.
