MIDWEST ELITE CONCERTS PRESENTS: ARTILLERY FUNK w/ Last Word Clique, Dominique Morgan, & Congruency

09:00 pm until 02:00 am at Waiting Room.

The forging of Artillery Funk occured long before the four brothers were ever united…
Jallicus tells the story lacking many details, for the tale in its entirety would send any reader into an orgasmic mindfuck and taunt and tease their wonders forever. All your grounds are covered, life, love, sex, joy, depression, death. The unknown is waiting for all to grasp but few put forth such effort. We four posess the power to take all who are willing on a journey through the stratosphere until an aurora borialis appears. A recognizable power, a familiar feeling. Will you follow? Will you heed the masters call? Pace the scarlet garden of rest. Put your earthly soul down, put it away, and embrace the life of love and euphoria…Take a hint, take a hit, who are we anyway? What are we doing here? Who’s so great they have something to lose?

The Sunday Roadhouse Presents - Bill Kirchen “Seeds and Stems” Tour

05:00 pm until 12:00 am at Waiting Room.

Fascinating interview and performance video:

The new album "Seeds and Stems" features songs spanning Kirchen's nearly 50-year
career and captured with the sound and energy of hs famed live shows.

Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen was among the most eclectic bands in Rock
history, with genre-bending songs ranging in date from the Great Depression right up
to the San Francisco scene of the Dead days. They incorporated Country and Rock into
a trippy version of the original Rockabilly blend, and along with fellow San
Francisco transplants Asleep at the Wheel helped revive the very-nearly-extinct form
of Western swing. The band had eight members at any given time, and to one extent or
another they were all important to its success, but perhaps the most iconic of these
musicians is founding member Bill Kirchen, whose mastery of the Telecaster guitar is
the stuff of legend.

"Country is a musical genre famous for themes of loss and tear-and-beer-stained
standards, but nothing compares to the pure, utter, downright lonesome despair of
'Down To Seeds & Stems Again'. Many-myself included-consider it to be one of the
all-time greatest songs in the Country canon. There might as well be a big ol'
guarantee slapped on a Bill Kirchen album.  Would anyone expect anything other than
a variable delight of brilliantly-executed songs that are
Tele-monster-guitar-lickin' good?  Didn't think so. I mean, when the Man in Black
(Johnny F-ing Cash) has called you "great", Rolling Stone calls your work "epic",
and you've racked up awards, praises from the harshest critics and the respect of
every damn guitar player on the planet,  along with every moniker you'd hope for
(like "King of Telecaster", "Triumph of the Telecaster" "Titan of the Telecaster"),
you know you've got the goods and your name is Mr. Bill Kirchen.There are Masters
among us. Effortless, consistent Masters that use music to bring joy and shake up
your insides in the best possible way. Kirchen's at the top of that list." - Outlaw

Moran Woodwind Quintet

03:00 pm until 06:00 pm at Kimball Recital Hall.

The Moran Woodwind Quintet performs three works for quintet at 3 p.m.
on November 17 in the Kimball Recital Hall as part of the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music.

"Our fall concert has three very contrasting works-one transcription of a classic,
one with jazz and salsa influence, and one very intense modern work.  The Moran
Woodwind Quintet is excited to share these in concert," John Bailey said.

The program starts with Mozart's famous Serenade in C Minor, K. 388, arranged from
the octet version for woodwind quintet by Israeli bassoonist Mordechai Rechtman.
Also on the program are two original works for quintet: Cuban jazz great Paquito
D'Rivera's Aires Tropicales (with movements drawing on South American and Cuban
dance, African rhythms, and American jazz), and Baylor University composer Scott
McAllister's With Growing Wind and Tide, which features extreme contrasts in
texture, color, and tempo.

Tickets for the event are General Admission $5; Students/Seniors $3.

Bio:One of the most active and visible quintets in the Midwest, the Moran Woodwind
Quintet is the resident faculty woodwind quintet of the Glenn Korff School of Music.
The quintet includes Jeffrey McCray, Bassoon; Diane Barger, Clarinet; John Bailey,
Flute; Alan Mattingly, Horn and William McMullen, Oboe. Formed in 1986 and named for
the late John Moran, Director of the UNL School of Music, the Quintet has toured
extensively, including performances in Kansas, Iowa, Ohio, Missouri, Colorado,
Oklahoma, Illinois, South Dakota, Arkansas and Texas. They have also performed at
conventions of the College Music Society, the International Double Reed Society and
the International Horn Society. The Quintet has recorded three CD's for Crystal
Records, including two CDs featuring music of the early 20th-century German composer
Theodor Blumer and one with American woodwind quintets (music of Heiden, Higdon,
Murdock and Lieuwen). The Quintet has also recorded on the Coronet label.

Leftover Salmon

07:00 pm until 11:00 pm at Bourbon Theater.

The self-described “polyethnic cajun slamgrass” group Leftover Salmon formed in Colorado in the early ’90s as a merger of two area acts, the Left Hand String Band and the Salmonheads. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist/washboard player Vince Herman, banjoist Mark Vann, mandolinist/guitarist Drew Emmit, bassist Tye North and drummer Michael Wooten, the band’s good-timey earned a grassroots following on the festival circuit and resulted in their 1993 self-released debut Bridges to Bert. Ask the Fish, a 1995 live effort recorded at Boulder, Colorado’s Fox Theatre, helped Leftover Salmon earn a deal with the Hollywood label, which in 1997 released the group’s major label bow Euphoria. The Nashville Sessions followed two years later. Upon issuing the Live album in spring 2002, Leftover Salmon experienced some restructuring within the band. North and Wooten were no longer part of Leftover Salmon. Greg Garrison stepped in to play bass, Jose Martinez was added on drums and newcomer Bill McKay joined on keyboards.
