Doors at 6:30pm Dinner Presentation at 7pm Dinner Served 7:15 sharp Reading- Michael Supe Granda A multi-instrumentalist, Supe and rock and roll entered adolescence at the same time-Supe describes himself as a 'sponge' in exploring the varied sounds of famed Gaslight Square in St. Louis-and out of the exposure to the vibrant music culture came a mind and soul dedicated to a wide variety of sounds and styles. At the end of the 1960s, Supe aimed his car and his life in a southwesterly direction from his St. Louis home, and a couple hundred miles on I-44 later arrived in Springfield, Missouri, his home for the next twenty years. There he found a common vibe among a coterie of musicians who in 1971 formed the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. The group's self-titled debut on A&M Records was produced by Glyn Johns (The Who, Rolling Stones) and spawned a Top 30 hit in "If You Want to Get to Heaven." Count a foray into the political arena among the weirder tangents Supe has taken. In 1990 Supe ran for state representative in Missouri-as a Republican, thereby surprising even those folks who had become habituated to his excess. Supe raised consciousness in his district, guiding the disenfranchised to voter registrars, and then, with strategy trumping an actual desire to spend a couple of years in politics, he withdrew from the race and threw his support to the eventual winner. Rock music author Dave Marsh invited Supe to chronicle his activism in 50 Ways to Fight Censorship (Thunder Mouth Press), his book-length primer on free speech and its defense. Singing- Joseph Lemay LeMay began performing at an age when most kids are focused on learning the alphabet. Just barely a teen, the young musician could add Showtime at the Apollo, an opening gig for Brian Wilson and a countless line of county fairs across the southeast to his list of growing accomplishments. This passion for music continued to manifest during high school as LeMay took to writing and moved to New York in search of work as a performer. During his time in Manhattan, LeMay’s musical future bent when he met music veteran Charlie Peacock, producer of The Civil Wars and The Lone Bellow. LeMay moved to Nashville and spent hours as a silent observer of Peacock as artists passed through his studio. Witnessing the life of a working musician changed LeMay, inspiring him to find his voice. To escape the inevitable pace their life was heading, LeMay and his new wife made a drastic change of scenery and moved into that forgotten trailer on her family’s inherited farm on the outskirts of Dyersburg, Tenn. “Music fulfills a need,” says LeMay. “It’s communicating across mediums. We don’t just want words. It’s the color and the canvas. The cadence and the lyric.” It’s with a balanced grasp of bare truth and pursuit of grace that LeMay channels this primal need in the desolation of his Seventeen Acres. Complimentary beverages served. For more information contact: chuck@eastsidestorytn.com or unboundartsnashville@gmail.com.
