Old 97's
Old 97's
Since the Old 97’s roared out of Dallas more than fifteen years ago, they have blazed a trail through alt-country and power-pop, led by the piercingly observant lyrics of lead singer Rhett Miller. Each new Old 97’s record is hotly anticipated, and rightfully so: “Blame It On Gravity,” from 2008, contained some of the band’s most deeply felt and passionately played songs. But in a career full of high-water marks, “The Grand Theatre Volume 1” is perhaps the most ambitious and accomplished set of recordings yet.

Reese McHenry Band
Reese McHenry came up swinging in Northern Minnesota and she didn’t sit still for very long. A true troubadour, her powerful voice has driven her from the fresh greens of Eau Claire to the dusty motels of Albuquerque and everywhere in between. Since settling in North Carolina, this prolific songwriter and jagged performer has lent her fire and talent to a number of recording projects and now turns her attention to her own damn show.



In 2005 McHenry started the seminal garage-rock blues-band The Dirty Little Heaters, beginning as a duo with Melissa Thomas, and in 2007, brought on Rob Walsh (Spinns) and Dave Perry (Jett Rink). Sidetracked by a near fatal stroke and Pulmonary Edema, the decision to sever the faulty part of her heart and install a pacemaker has put her back on track to full time rock and roll. In 2014 she teamed up with Bob Wall (Erie Choir), Dave Perry, Ed Hurt, and Chuck Garrison (Superchunk) to release “Tourist” as The Second Wife. In July 2017 she released the acclaimed garage-rock “Bad Girl” with Spider Bags, a collaboration that marks McHenry’s turn from the band life to her status as a rock icon who can join any backing band and make something great. Most recently, her duo Reese McHenry & The Fox released their highly anticipated first EP, High Comma, a 4-song 45 vinyl record.

She’s written well over 300 songs, most waiting in the wings to be recorded. These songs defy genre and, though one could still categorize then as straight-shooting “rock,” the real thread connecting these songs is a wry brand of humor mixed with an ability to catch a hook at just the right moment. McHenry’s true signature, of course, is her emotive blues voice that can change at any moment from soft sweetness to a torrential downpour.



Reese is currently touring with members of Drag Sounds (Reese McHenry and the Foxes) as well as solo.
