Event Details Big O and Dukes Live
Date: 3/22/2013 until 3/23/2013
Time: 9:30 pm to 12:45 am
Location: 227 Maple Avenue East, Vienna, VA 22180 (View Map)

Description: The Big O and Dukes show was forged in the fires of 99.1WHFS. As evening drive hosts Oscar Santana and Chad Dukes brought their two different views of the world and took over the late night airwaves of the DC Metro area. With Oscar’s pension for the pompous and Chad’s all-American edge, growing popularity launched the boys from weeknight PM Drive to Midday hot talk on Baltimore's Live 105.7. In 2005, Big O and Dukes also became the first major market terrestrial talk show to publish their shows podcasts on iTunes. In 2006, the boys landed a gig 2000 miles from home at Phoenix’s Free FM 101.5. It was here they met their now loyal, albeit awkward, producer Drab T-Shirt. As the top rated night show in the market their home town, Washington D.C., took notice. In the summer of 2007, the show moved back east to historic hot talk station 106.7 WJFK in Washington D.C.

Steve Forbert
Date: 3/23/2013
Time: 8:00 pm to 9:45 pm
Location: 227 Maple Avenue East, Vienna, VA 22180 (View Map)

Description: As a young man from Meridian, Mississippi, Steve traveled to New York City and played guitar for spare change in Grand Central Station. He vaulted to international prominence with a folk-rock hit, "Romeo's Tune" during a time when rootsy rock was fading out and the Ramones, Talking Heads and other New Wave and punk acts were moving in to the public consciousness. "Those styles didn't really synch with my musical approach," reflects Forbert. Still, critics raved about Forbert's poetic lyrics and engaging melodies, and the crowds at CBGB's club in New York accepted him alongside those acts. "I've never been interested in changing what I do to fit emerging trends," Forbert observes. "Looking back on it, I was helping to keep a particular American songwriting tradition alive at a time when it wasn't in the spotlight." After his first two records came a plethora of well-crafted, unforgettable songs on such albums as Little Stevie Orbit, Streets of This Town, The American in Me, Mission of the Crossroad Palms and Evergreen Boy. His tribute to Jimmie Rodgers, Any Old Time, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004. Forbert's lengthy discography has established him as an American icon. His music was pure Americana before that genre was recognized. The road and the changing landscape are an integral part of the hard-working Forbert's life and songwriting. He was a truck driver before releasing his first album and says there's "romance" involved when he gets in the car after each show and drives to the next gig in another city. Fourteen albums on, Forbert's stamp on American music is akin to the legendary footprints of Warren Zevon, Gene Clark, Gram Parsons and other top American songwriters, and he has often been compared to the likes of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen. The former group did not get their due during their lifetimes, and that shouldn't happen to Forbert. He deserves to be among the latter group. Now, 34 years after his first album, Steve Forbert is releasing an exciting new one, Over With You. Its ten fresh but mature songs pinpoint a wide range of emotions that color personal relationships - emotions that most listeners have undoubtedly felt and struggled to understand at some point in their lives. "This is an album that has taken a lifetime to make," explains Forbert. "You don't just pull these songs out of thin air - you have to live them."

Time: 11:00 pm to 12:45 am
Location: 227 Maple Avenue East, Vienna, VA 22180 (View Map)

Description: A rock band with punk energy and pop reggae grooves, Baltimore’s BALLYHOO! are a fun, fan-loving powerhouse. These road dogs have tirelessly toured coast-to-coast taking their music to the people. Between the road and the studio, BALLYHOO! have crafted a sound distinctly their own; fresh, fun, and embodied by the soul of the party lifestyle. Lead singer and guitarist, Howi Spangler, has a reputation for mixing slick lyrics with his smooth but powerful voice. Drummer Donald “Big D” Spangler lays out the hard-hitting beats, which are underlined by JR Gregory’s funky and witty bass lines. Scott Vandrey (aka DJ Blaze) rounds it out on the turntables and keys. BALLYHOO!’s unique sound, hardcore devotion to the road and their fans has pitched them into snowballing success. The band has performed with a myriad of national touring acts; 311, Slightly Stoopid, SOJA, The Dirty Heads, Matisyahu, and more. In 2011, after concluding the Last Calls and Liabilities tour with respected contemporaries, Pepper, they were honored with being included on the ever-popular Hollister Holiday Playlist. They were listed on MTV’s Top 100 Bands to Watch and even featured 2 downloadable songs on the popular video game ROCK BAND. Tour highlights include the 2011 311 Pow Wow Festival, the 2012 311 Caribbean Cruise, Bamboozle 2012, & the entire 2012 Vans Warped Tour. The band’s last single “Last Night” saw rotation at various alternative radio stations including WHFS Baltimore, WRFF Philadelphia, KUKQ Phoenix, Star 101.9 Honolulu, & SiriusXM/Faction, as well as various specialty shows around the country. The band's new single "Walk Away" is next and poised to open even more doors at radio with it's melodic chorus and sing along vibe. Yesod Williams, owner of the band’s label LAW Records says of his newest addition, “Having BALLYHOO! join the LAW family is a perfect fit. They are an incredibly talented band with a really catchy style”.
