03/23 Fri 8:30 ~ CHRIS TRAPPER; also JEFFREY GAINES ~ $25 +$2 processing

Chris Trapper is a modern day folk-singer whose live show is a favorite among fans of alt-acoustic music. Chris' organic understanding of classic pop melody is infectious. His on-stage persona is warm and inclusive, his songs speak to the heart and to everyday experiences. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. Chris is perhaps most known for his original song This Time, the #1 selling tune on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for August Rush. Original frontman for beloved '90s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS, Chris Trapper is equally sure-footed in his solo career with original tunes on 5 solo CDs, a variety of film and TV placements, and the distinction of having co-written the focus tracks on Fortune's Favour, the gold record from Canadian band Great Big Sea. Chris Trapper's ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders. Chris Trapper's music can best be described as intricate power pop with a compelling knack for telling everyday stories.

Through the years, Jeffrey Gaines has built an emotional and trusting bond with his fans, and admits that they have sustained him from the start. Even when he was between record companies, it was his fans that propelled his live version of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" to the top of several major radio stations' charts. Growing up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Jeffrey's parents were constantly playing records by Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight & The Pips. Gaines found that music gave him the opportunity to transcend his quiet nature. "Being kind of shy, I wanted to put myself in a position to communicate to as many people as I could once I had my thoughts together." After amassing a fervent live following, he landed a record deal in the early '90s, which resulted in three critically-acclaimed albums. He has made appearances from Conan O'Brien to Good Morning America, headlined his own sold-out North American tour, as well as touring with the likes of Tracy Chapman, Sting, Melissa Etheridge, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and Richard Thompson.
