Moriah Haven & Nick Giese Duo/ Ross Hollow! @ Stanley's Pub

Stanley's Pub, 323 Stanley Avenue, Cincinnati, Oh

This is going to be a great night of music with Moriah Haven & Nick Giese Duo and Ross Hollow from Indianapolis!

Moriah Haven Moriah Haven is a Singer-Songwriter, whose projects utilize various concept characters, with each expressing a clear idea in their own voice. Though, spoken through many characters, her projects seek to reflect her personal beliefs, in hopes of raising awareness (and removing stigmas) on speaking openly about mental illness, surviving abuse, body positivity, and sexuality, and LBGTQ+ rights. With her own intimate history concerning these matters, her songs often facilitate these discussions with a brutal, poetic honesty. "For me, singing is mostly about the articulation of emotional intention through melody. The arts, and music in particular, seem to connect us with each other on a spiritual level like nothing else quite can; creating a unique human connection you rarely see manifesting through other expressions."

Nick Giese Hailing from Cincinnati, Nick Giese has recorded with such national acts as Country Legend, Billie Gant, Whey Jennings (of 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 Jennings legacy), as well as with the likes of Sonny Moorman, Jackson Taylor, and Headband. He has also proven to be a hometown favorite, hosting weekly jam sessions where he hand picks and facilitates a stage for local talent, and receiving nominations for local awards. Appearing on numerous recordings, including Gant’s 2017 release, “On and On”, as well as “Whey Jennings Acoustic Featuring Nick Giese” in 2014. His guitar work is truly unique, passionate, quick, and tasteful, where he effortlessly transitions from Country to Blues, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Jazz, and Rock with an arsenal of Guitars at his side, with occasional appearances by Banjo, Dobro, and Bass. His songwriting reflects his love for tradition, where he continues a mission to keep authentic Country music alive and well.

Ross Hollow’s music makes you want to stand up, dance, sit down, laugh, tap your toes, hum along, snap your fingers, listen to the words, drink beer, attend church, smell the rain, enjoy life more. It has the kind of catchy melodies and verve that keeps you humming the songs long after you’ve heard them for the first time. With roots in New England, the Southwest, Chicago, The Carolinas, Mississippi Delta, and Indiana, Ross Hollow’s music can transport you to all these places and more, with driving bass funkadelic, solid dobro twang, flamenco guitar riffs, wailing harmonica, scintillating ebony and ivory stylings, backwoods banjo rolls, and the backbeat that just won’t stop.

The Happnin' Hootenanny at Hannahs Hosted by Scott Lee

Hannah's, 121 N Ludlow St., Dayton, Ohio

"Going to be a hummmdinger of a show with some of the class country acts from Dayton and beyond Febuary 16th.

FREE SHOW!!! Music at 9:00

ARTISTS INCLUDE

Scott Lee: Given the Moniker "Last of the true blue folk singers" Scott will be slinging some ancient country verses from the pre-stadium days, and some of his own songs coming straight from the vein of the old school ramblers, gamblers lone riders and outsiders. Scott can do the cowboy yodel, the blues stomp, and the whiskey warble all at the same time. Sold his soul to the devil and bought a saddle, you don't want to miss the cowboy blues shake and rattle from his ole guitar. Like the black sheep baby of Billy the Kid and Shakespeare, hold on to yer britches and grab another beer, because Scott will make you bust a gut and shed a tear.

Sassy Molasses: Miss Sassy's mission is to explore a comedic approach in advocation of body positive self images and sex positive experiences for those who identify as female, and to teach about consent. Sassy believes, everyone is beautiful, just as they are, and there ain’t one human being on this planet that will survive trying to slut shame this little firecracker. So, she will hit the streets, share lifestyle advice, songs, local artists, and more: all while sporting a big ol’ country fried middle finger for misogyny; donnin’ her cutoffs and cowgirl boots. Yes, Sassy proudly shares her physical, mental, and comedic goods with the world, preachin’ the gospel of sexual consent all the way……..and, well, as she would say, if you don’t like it, “Well then, you fellers can jump up and bite a hog in the ass!”

Chad Cremeans: Chad is cut straight from the boot hide of the outlaw country greats. Songs that'll make you holler, hoot, squall and boot scoot and boogie. He brings the heat everytime with his country ballads and long gone lonesome blues."
