Maria Gillard & Scott Regan: "A Little Luck" CD Release Party Two long time members of the local songwriting community, who began co-writing a few years back, now have a new CD. Joining Maria and Scott on the recording, are Perry Cleaveland, mandolin and fiddle; Steve Piper, guitar; and Brian Williams, bass. They will also accompany them for the release show. Recorded all live, these recordings capture the conversational style of their writing, and the instrumental play in the arrangements. Maria is best known for her trio and quartet that each blur the line between swing/jazz, folk and bluegrass. Scott performs with Watkins & the Rapiers. They each also have played solo gigs for years. This is their first effort as a duo. http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/MariaGillardandScottRegan http://www.mariagillard.com http://rapiers.org

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 eight minutes for their set. 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. Oftentimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, guitar/bass amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own instruments! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). Though it is not recommended, we will allow a full band to play as long as the musicians are respectful of others time and space. If you are a drummer, it is suggested that you bring in your 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.

Doors Open: 7pm / Event Starts: 8pm
Privileged Productions presents a fantastic night of entertainment, featuring three stars on the rise!   Alyssa Trahan to headline the show... Alyssa Trahan (“TRAY-han”) is a 19 year-old country singer-songwriter from Rochester, NY. She has written and holds the copyrights to over 60 original songs and plays more than a dozen different instruments, many of which were self taught. In June 2013, she released her debut album, “Hi", featuring all original compositions. The album received rave reviews, especially for her songwriting; It is worth noting that many of the album's 12 tracks were written when she was only 14. She recently released a new single, “Cowboy” which debuted on country radio, along with a new music video. The single has already become Alyssa’s most popular release, and the music video is quickly gaining views. Her music has been played on several radio stations, including WBEE, The BUZZ, Big Dog Country, AiiRadio (online radio station based in the UK that broadcasts worldwide) and more. She has also been on the Bob Lonsberry show on WHAM 1180. In addition, Alyssa has been featured on websites and blogs such as One Stop Country, Rhythm & Ruffle, Big City Country’s homepage, and Pop Vulture Magazine. She was chosen as a featured artist on Frettie, an online songwriting community, and has twice been a featured artist on ReverbNation, earning her a spot on the homepage. She was also awarded an Indie Music Channel Award for her original song “Terrified”. Alyssa has a passion for performing, playing over 50 shows every year. These shows include Rochester’s “Country Done Come To Town Tour” and the “Homegrown Music Showcase,” plus many others. She has also opened for acts such as the Dady Brothers, Chris Pureka and John Craigie. Most recently, her original song “You’re Only Girl” was chosen to be featured in the independent film “The Jersey Devil” (debuted September 2014). Never one to slow down, Alyssa is currently hard at work on a new country EP set to release this Fall.   ALYSSA TRAHAN’s “YOUR ONLY GIRL” VIDEO (featured in “The Jersey Devil” Soundtrack) http://youtu.be/RdDr4wpHgKQ ALYSSA TRAHAN'S "COWBOY" VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81BVXsYmk3Y ALYSSA'S COVER OF THE DIXIE CHICKS "TRAVELIN SOLDIER": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocYYC8fx_Tc   Privileged.Productions on Alyssa Trahan: “Luckily, we first met Alyssa at this summer’s Park Ave Festival – and were immediately impressed with her presence, her voice, and her repertoire of original tunes. We have come to know her as the consummate professional who puts tireless effort into everything she does – including all aspects of her Social Media and website content (including graphics) to masterful production of her own music. After 10 years of working with the brightest local talent, Alyssa is at the top of our list for unlimited commercial potential. She is a star already, and will one day bring home CMA and Grammy awards. Quote us on that.”     Evan Millet Watelet Evan Miller Watelet (“WAH-teh-LAY”) started singing at a very young age and was studying with professional vocal coaches by the age of 10. By 13, he was lead singer of his first band. For the past three years he has focused on studying not only voice, but also guitar, music theory and song writing at the Rochester Contemporary School of Music. Now 17, he has performed at a number of local venues including The Montage Music Hall, The Bug Jar, and Lovin’ Cup. Evan was received well by audiences throughout the inaugural “Stand Up and Sing Out” Open Mic competition sponsored by Lovin’ Cup this year. He is about to begin the process of recording his growing collection of original songs, and hopes to have an EP with four or five tracks available by early 2015.   Privileged.Productions on Evan Miller Watelet: “We first encountered Evan performing at an Open Mic night in Fairport during mid-Summer 2014. It was obvious that he not only has a very radio-friendly voice, but plays guitar well and composes solid originals. We’ve come to know him as a very bright, ambitious and congenial young man who is willing to take risks and have fun while entertaining. Only 17, we feel he is rapidly developing and has a highly intriguing future in music. During Lovin’ Cup’s 2014 “Stand Up and Sing Out” Open Mic competition, Evan performed during the majority of the audition nights. On our scorecard, he was the top performer on most of those nights.”     Caitlin Cipolla Caitlin Cipolla (“Sih-POLL-ah”) is a very talented and charismatic 15 year-old singer/songwriter/guitarist from Fairport, New York. She has been playing guitar and singing since the age of 12 and from those early days has displayed remarkable talent in composing original songs. During this formative period, she admired Taylor Swift and learned it was at age 13 that Taylor began visiting Nashville to perform. Caitlin felt inspired to do the same. In the summer of her 13th year, Caitlin made her first trip to Nashville and was afforded an opportunity to play at Paradise Park, a bar on Nashville's famed Music Row! Since then, she has made the trek to Nashville twice a year- playing at various Open Mic events and connecting with other musicians! In the Greater Rochester region, Caitlin has made appearances at special events for a variety of organizations. She continues to build experience and gain fans by playing at local coffee shops and bistros, including Lovin’ Cup! She is steadily refining her skills in song writing and continues to build her impressive collection of original compositions.   Privileged.Productions on Caitlin Cipolla: “We discovered Caitlin during Lovin’ Cup’s “Stand Up and Sing Out” Open Mic competition, which we helped judge. She earned our highest score during the event’s finale and we knew we had just witnessed the birth of a star. Impressive on many levels (musicianship, singing, song writing, charisma and poise), this is a rare talent with a very bright future in music.”

A little bit about Brooklyn Brewery....   Brooklyn Brewery makes beer. Good beer. Not only does it taste good and make your meal better but we like to think that since its founding in 1988, Brooklyn Brewery has brewed flavorful beers that enrich the life, tradition and culture of the communities it serves. Its award-winning roster of year-round, seasonal and specialty beers have gained the Brewery notoriety as one of the top craft beer producers in the world. While striving to brew the best beer possible (and make time for our growing families), The Brewery promotes the proliferation of good beer and good food whenever it can. Brooklyn beers are currently distributed in 25 states and 20 countries. Throughout 2011 The Brewery underwent an expansion that will double overall capacity in 2012 and quintuple by 2013. Brooklyn Brewery probably exports more beer than any other American craft brewery.
