Hydra Plane // Quarx

It's time to get funky with Hydra Plane & Quarx!

Friday, September 21 // BYOB 

Hydra Plane

Formed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana mid 2016, Hydra Plane plays a combination of psychedelic rock, jazz, and funk, as well as other styles such as hip-hop and world music. The trio consists of Jacob Stanley on guitar and vocals, Eric Stewart on Bass, and Stephen Nelson on drums however they frequently collaborate with various horn players, percussionists, and rappers. Hydra Plane is highly improvisational and strives to always bring something new to their live performances and recordings

Quarx

Quarx began in the Baton Rouge area, playing venues such as the Varsity Theater and the Spanish Moon, and stemmed from the songwriting of Alaric Fricke (rhythm guitar, vocals) in 2017. Jonathan Zeringue (bass) came in to the picture shortly thereafter, followed by Keagan Soto (Lead Guitar) and Thomas Vercher (Drums). Each member of the group comes from a variety of musical interests, background, and experience. The group focused on creating chemistry between each other and blending the influences of Funk, Punk, Progressive Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Rock to produce what the group likes to call "Wholesale Rock-n-Roll." Group members focus on each being given creative input and freedom, allowing the group songwriting process to become as complex or as simple as the story trying to be told from the four. The band does however, believe that they shine the most in the live performance setting. Improvisation, rotating set lists, and guest appearances means one thing, you never know what you'll get at a performance, and twists and turns will always be a possibility. With each night having endless possibilities, Quarx hopes to see you soon.

C.W. Stoneking at Midcity Ballroom

C.W. Stoneking at Midcity Ballroom

Wednesday, July 11




Spanish Moon Presents

C.W. Stoneking 

and more TBA


8PM

Mid City Ballroom
Baton Rouge, LA


C.W. Stoneking is the embodiment of what some would say is a bygone era of music. From his rasping jungle-rock-blues, to his well-oiled locks, and his familiar all white clothing ensemble, he has converted fans across the world to his unique style.
A first generation Australian of American-descent, C.W. Stoneking was born in the top end of Australia’s Northern Territory and spent his childhood growing up in Central Australia, Sydney and rural Victoria. He has travelled the world from Egypt to New Orleans (where he worked as a hoodoo doctor’s assistant) to Trinidad, where he learned about Calypso music. He has lived in isolated farmhouses working as a handyman, and been involved in and survived a shipwreck, spending time in Africa, and touring internationally as a recording artist.
After spending the past half of a decade stamping his inimitable stylings across the UK and Europe, C.W. Stoneking once again settled down in the Northern Victorian countryside to record his latest release, Gon’ Boogaloo. Far from the sepia toned tales of marooned adventures in the tropics of his latest release, Jungle Blues, C.W. entered into the world of electricity - replacing his much-loved Banjo with a shiny gold Fender.
Released to critical acclaim in May 2015, Gon’ Boogaloo has seen C.W. embark on multiple jaunts across Australia and Europe with his delightful band in tow, including singers Vika & Linda Bull stepping in as backing vocalists. He’s set a pace that is not looking like it will slow down any time zoo, as C.W. continues to entertain and delight crowds of all ages.
“Oozes energy, chemistry and a wild imagination. Its thoroughly charming.”
The Australian
“Immaculate, old-world musicianship.”
Rolling Stone
