Kris Acklen Trio. Zoo Girls. Chis Curtis. Saturday, June 20 says
KRIS ACKLEN writes songs for country, pop, folk, and rhythm and blues, often fusing these genres into songs that connect with the masses. Hailing from Memphis, TN, this 27 year old multi-instrumentalist has spent decades soaking in the rich culture and history his Memphis roots have to offer.

Performing live since 2009, Kris' smooth yet powerful voice gives him the versatility to deliver for whichever genre he's writing, After releasing the more indie/pop side of his songwriting at the end of 2011 with "The Trainsets EP," Kris is scheduled to show off his smoother songs in 2015 with an EP entitled "Fall'n." Kris is currently playing showcases and festivals with his band while he preps to take them on the road, taking the next step towards becoming a regional act.

ZOO GIRLS are comprised of local musicians Molly Ray, Lauren Taylor and Beth Okeon. The trio performs regularly at area venues including Otherlands, Memphis Farmers Market, Neil’s and Cafe Ole.

Friends for more than a decade, the girls enjoy writing music and lyrics that are relatable, honest and resonate with situations every human encounters from love to heartbreak and everything in between.

Musical influences that have shaped their writing include Counting Crows, REM and Lucinda Williams. In 2014, the Zoo Girls were awarded the Peer Award from the Memphis Songwriters Showcase.

CHRIS CURTIS opens the show at 8 sharp. He comes to Memphis from Dyersburg and has played several of our New Artist shows getting a great response at each. Get here early on Friday to catch his whole set and get a good seat for the whole show. You can check out his music here.
