The lineup is always changing, but here’s the scoop on a few of our returning artists.

Alex Maryol
Alex MaryolThe son of Greek-American restaurateurs, Alex Maryol grew up in Santa Fe surrounded by a lively artistic and cultural landscape. Raised on the music of Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and Elvis Presley, he began songwriting during his teenage years while performing at smoky bars and coffee shops in downtown Santa Fe. While primarily influenced by blues greats such as Lightning Hopkins and Buddy Guy during these years, Alex maintained a love for all musical genres from classical to grunge. In his early twenties Alex gained notoriety by performing as a blues act at festival favorites such as the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival and the King Biscuit Blues Festival. These years of working in the blues laid a solid foundation for him to expand his ideas in other fields of music.
Le Chat Lunatique

Band-LeChatLunatiqueAs unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, doo-wop, and “anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike.

Their irreverent humor, their intensity, and their expert musicianship will soon win them your acclamation as the best time you’ve ever had in public with your clothes on.

The Real Matt Jones

Matt Jones“. . .Albuquerque’s Matt Jones serves up a bevy of tunes that go down as easily as his two-syllable moniker.” -Jennifer Clay, SPIN Magazine

The Real Matt Jones is a singer and songwriter that looks to the idiosyncrasies in life and magnifies them to the point where listeners say, “Oh yeah, I can see that.”

Matt has performed and toured extensively in many areas throughout the United States and Canada. The emphasis in Matt’s music is on songwriting, vocal ability, and rhythmic nuances, but The Real Matt Jones is 100 percent entertainer.

While the music is resoundingly pop-oriented, he entices listeners with interesting arrangements and subject matter. Additionally, he delivers soulful lyrics that evoke powerful emotions along with flawless guitar work, all the while being peppered with his own brand of humor and storytelling. These elements tie together to make music that has great replay value, and is easy to remember.

The Porter Draw

The Porter Draw is an Alt-Country, Americana band from Albuquerque. They have been key contributors to a flourishing New Mexico roots music movement since 2007 and have shared the stage with such greats as Greensky Bluegrass, Reverend Horton Heat, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Cadillac Sky.

Fitting in at country honky-tonks and rock n’ roll clubs alike, The Porter Draw have built a reputation for high energy, sweat-drenched shows coupled with tight harmonies of wistfully delicate lyrics of longing, heartbreak, and the American experience.

Silver String Band

Silver String Band, Albuquerque’s premier bluegrass/Americana ensemble, was established in August of 2015 as a collaboration between musician and songwriters already deeply entrenched in the New Mexico music scene. Silver String Band plays a combination of originals, traditional bluegrass favorites and creative covers in the bluegrass style.
