The event creator says
From New York to New Jersey to New Orleans to Memphis 4 songwriters, an eclectic mix to be sure, its the kind of thing that really only works out in Memphis. Richard James opens then it's Stephen Chopek, Harry Koniditsiotis and Tony Manard in the round! $7 At the door music at 8 sharp!

Stephen Chopek's music is a skillfully crafted tapestry of folk, punk, pop, and roots. His latest release is an EP called On Their Own; the second installment of three released for 2015. Stephen recently moved to Memphis from New Jersey. For more information, visit him online at www.stephenchopek.com

New Orleans to Memphis transplant singer/songwriter Harry Koniditsiotis plays a mesh of post punk/dream pop called bootgaze in his current band Switchblade Kid. He runs 5 and Dime Recording and hangs out with a bunch of dogs and cats.

Tony Manard is a life-long Memphian and his music reflects life in the biggest small town in the world. It’s folk with a twang and a side of blues, seasoned with cynical humor and garnished with smartassery and a touch of sadness. A quick right hand and a lyrical middle finger for “the man”, the songs feature marginal and marginalized characters form history and the imagination. He released his first collection of original songs “Nothing I want to Talk About” in November of 2014 and is working on a follow-up expected fall of 2015. Catch him solo picking the flattop box or with his multi-instrumentalist son Vinnie sitting in on keys or bass. He still lives in Memphis in a house full of talented lunatics and animals. - See more at: http://tonymanard.com

Memphis bar room denizens should be familiar with songster, guitarist, and bandleader Richard James by now. His rousing live performances bring patrons to their feet, inviting them to stand at the mike and share in all the sweat drenched glory that is rock and roll.

What they may not know is that behind the stage antics are songs that are well crafted and heart felt. Richard remains as unabashed in his subtlety as he does in his boldness.Have a listen.
