Doors Open: 7:30pm / Event Starts: 8:30pm
You know you're just gonna sleep in and eat food all day tomorrow, so come party with us for one of the best bar nights of the year!   Teagan Ward opens up the night at 8:30 with an acoustic set... Singer/songwriter, Teagan Ward, isn’t from this this time or place. At least it doesn’t seem like she should be.   With her wild mane of long curls flinging around her head while she dances and her free spirited attitude combined with her soul-tingling vocals, she would fit well with the likes of Janis or Stevie. But Ward, 27, has paid homage to these influences by bringing their spirit and sound to this generation for over 10 years. Ward doesn’t just sing, she roars. And don’t be fooled by her small stature; this lady can match and exceed the vocal talents of legends, like Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin, with little effort. Whether you hear her perform solo or as the front woman for Rochester’s Teagan and the Tweeds, Ward always has the perfect recipe that will leave you satisfied. Her tunes are sweet like molasses – nothing bubblegum about them – paired with a soulful taste you’ll want to savor. The Tweeds have rounded out her music adding new dimension and enhancing her style. In 2010 Teagan was voted “Best Solo Musician” by CITY Newspaper and again in 2012 along with “Best Original Band”-Teagan and the Tweeds. Whether you catch her alone or with The Tweeds one of Teagan’s performances is sure to be an enjoyable experience. Be sure to check out Teagan’s solo album on iTunes as well as Teagan and the Tweeds’ NEW Album “Searching Game”.   Followed by the Lovin' Cup debut of Seeking Monte! Seeking Monte is Rochester, New York’s original modern rock band. Since January 2014, the band has been creating thoughtfully constructed original rock music. All members of the quintet have extensive musical resumes as well as diverse interests. Former members of some of Rochester New York’s best known original rock bands. Lead vocalist Sara Passamonte best known for her powerful vocals in Nevergreen, brings a strong melodic voice to Seeking Monte with her unique melodies and warm lyrics. Former Rainline guitarist Lee Heberger along with Rift Inside’s Mike Guarino, Bring a diverse powerful wall of solid guitar. They both come from the same genre of influences but yet together they build a blend of guitar riffs that are in your face and yet melodic. Bassist Stacy Krebbeks former member from Mike and The Pennies brings his solid deep bass lines to the forefront of Seeking Monte and works in seamless time with diverse drummer Bob Besley. Bob is best known for his studio session work as well as multiple cover and original bands. http://www.reverbnation.com/seekingmonte

Jon Lewis Band “Jon Lewis has tapped into something really great on "In Disguise," his new album: a real emotional connection and sincerity. A singer-songwriter, Lewis doesn't hide behind his guitar, but seems to be having a genuine conversation with the listener — there's a lot of his own soul pumped into the music.” Jake Clapp - City Newspaper   “Lewis has mastered the art of the singer-songwriter genre through writing heartfelt, confessional songs with widespread appeal.” Leah Creary - Rochester City Newspaper http://www.reverbnation.com/jonlewismusic   Teressa Wilcox Band Teressa Wilcox is a singer/songwriter who draws raw emotion from her heart into songs that people can relate to. Her Acoustic/Rock/Pop style will not only move you, but it will stop you in your tracks. From her broken hearts to her outright honesty, it is clear that her passion is to live and breath music. Come see her in a full band format, backed by some of Rochester's finest! http://www.reverbnation.com/teressawilcox

Doors Open: 6:30pm / Event Starts: 7:30pm
About Bob Bunce... Born in an Erie Railway station in Hornell before 1950. Took accordian lessons but the parents sold the instrument for a down payment on a house in North Chili. Bought a bass guitar with money from a paper route. Got fired from the garage band when mom wouldn't let him leave the campground to gig with "those kids". "A different kind of Bob, might be considering a move to memphis. This kind of Bob, is hangin' out in the woodshed, writin' songs about cats eating snakes, girls dancin' on tables, spendin' all your money, girlfriends who talk in tongues, and general pick yourself up by your bootstraps , feeling good about what you used to feel bad about songs. Some call it Americana. I call it authentic." - Thad Biggins http://www.reverbnation.com/bobbunce

Come share your music at what has been described by many as the hottest open mic night in town! (2012 CITY choice awards - Best Open Mic) Each performer is allowed two songs. Performers that don't use "songs" (comedians, poets, improvisational music, etc) are allowed up to 5-7 minutes for their set (we give them a five minute warning to let them know to wrap things up in the next 1-2 minutes). Sign up sheet goes out about an hour or so before open mic begins, and order is determined on a first come/first serve basis. First person to sign up gets an extra song! WE PROVIDE: The PA system (mics, speakers, etc), guitar cables, an old beat-up piano, a host/sound engineer. Sometimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own stuff! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). We do not recommended full bands, however we will allow it as long as the musicians are respectful of others' time and space (and play at a respectful volume for the audience). Drummers must bring in their drums before open mic begins (8:30) and set them up off to the side as to make for a speedy transition and not disrupt others' performances. Open mic begins around 8:30pm and goes until the night dies down (usually 11:00-11:30ish). Any other questions can be emailed to the show's host Willy O'Riley at willyoriley@lovincup.com.

BOP SHOP PRESENTS: Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen is one of the fortunate few who can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks that drove his seminal Commander Cody classic Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten, and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more. Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates an American musical tradition where rock ‘n’ roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk. All you need to know about Bill - http://billkirchen.com/home All you need to see of Bill - http://billkirchen.com/videos Press Quotes Johnny Cash - “I think he’s great.” Nick Lowe - “A devastating culmination of the elegant and the funky, a really sensational musician with enormous depth.” Pop Matters - “He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music, and to hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on one’s musical memory.” No Depression - “You might call [Hot Rod Lincoln] the Triumph of the Telecaster. Then again, you might say that about Kirchen’s whole career.” 3rd Coast Music - “Most discographies have their ups and downs, but Bill Kirchen’s albums just get better and better.” San Francisco Chronicle - “Kirchen can count on the respect of anybody who knows his work.” Puremusic.com - “one of the classic American artists.” Austin-American Statesman - “Bill Kirchen rules, it’s just that simple…scorching guitar runs in all directions…” Indy Week - “one of the best guitarists in the land” Vintage Guitar Magazine - “an American treasure” Washington City Paper - “Like an impassioned preacher in a souped-up convertible, Kirchen described passing Muddy Waters, Link Wray, Merle Haggard, B. B. King, Carl Perkins, Jimi Hendrix and more, nodding in tribute to each one with a perfect guitar quotation as he drove by. … Bill Kirchen took every one for the ride of their lives in his Hot Rod Lincoln.” Rolling Stone - “Opening night was particularly special due to the presence of Les Paul and Albert Lee, … Bill Kirchen cranked up his Tele for a set that gave the crowd a hotfoot, sparked by his epic cover of [‘Hot Rod Lincoln’]. (review of Danny Gatton Tribute, New York, Tramps)” - See more at: http://www.bopshop.com/event/the-bill-kirchen-band/#sthash.rCJgCMlE.dpuf
