The Lone Bellow

The Lone Bellow

Saturday
January 25, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Playing what they call “Brooklyn country music,” The Lone Bellow is a group of transplanted Southerners who deliver a passionate, soulful, acoustic-based alternative rock Americana. The Lone Bellow figured out a way to harness the acoustic-rock template being mined by Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, and The Civil Wars and add a sense of powerful vocal incandescence.

Shoes

Shoes

Saturday
May 31, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

It may not have been the hip thing to do, at the time, but Shoes carried on the true pop tradition of the Beatles and Raspberries during the late 70s and early 80s with charming innocence and execution unmatched by more derivative bands lumped into the category of “power pop.” The collective efforts of Shoes in the mid 90s led to a power pop revival in indie rock circles in the US. Shoes, from Zion, Illinois, don’t play together often, but Imagine Music is happy to bring them to Valparaiso for this show.

Sena Ehrhardt

Sena Ehrhardt

Saturday
October 4, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Sena was nominated for Best New Blues Artist in 2012 at the American Blues Awards. Sena Ehrhardt’s second Blind Pig release is a combination of soulful, roots-orientated musician that incorporates blues-rock, reggae, soul-blues, and funk. The influence of the multi-Grammy-award winner Jim Gaines, who has worked with numerous rock and blues performers, definitely made a difference in utilizing and combining the eclectic mixture without losing the identity of the band – Steven Hansen on bass, Tim Hasler on drums and Sena’s father, Ed Ehrhardt, on guitar.

...brassy, wrapped-around-her-finer inflections that will have the listener hanging on every word. Ehrhardt enchants with hard-knock heart full of blues and unrepentant female soul. – Elmore Magazine

Smithereens

The Smithereens

Saturday
November 22, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

The Smithereens are known for writing and playing catchy 1960s - influenced power pop. Heavily influenced by the Beatles and the Who, The Smithereens have always worn their inspirations proudly, but the band also influenced other musicians, most notably Kurt Cobain during the period he was writing Nirvana’s classic “Nevermind.” This will be the second appearance in the Imagine Music Concert Series for The Smithereens who will perform many hits of the Who as well as from their own catalog.
