Live Music with Brock Zeman

 

When it comes to storytelling, Brock Zeman is a master craftsman. The Canada-based singer-songwriter has spent the past 12 years carving and chiseling Americana soundscapes, drawing from roots-rock and alternative country. But what separates Zeman from his contemporaries isn’t a willingness to speak truth – it’s his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville and the traditional framework of genre. What gives Zeman’s stories force isn’t that he’s just singing a narrative – he’s living it…

Brock plays the Cove on Friday March 13th from 6-9pm. Join us for a great night!

 

Date :
March 13, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Halfcocked & Lonesome

 

After a massively popular night in August, we knew we had to have them back but things have been tricky in doing so! Here are in 2020, the return of the Honky Tonk!

Halfcocked and Lonesome…We started in 2015 when Andrew bought a pedal steel guitar and found that a local Ottawa bar wanted a honky tonk house band. So we pulled together some country loving friends and started a band. A few friends have come and gone from the band but we’ve kept the tunes rolling. We’ll always play some golden classics and a few new country tunes, but focus on what XM Satellite Radio calls “Prime Country”. The epic era from the late 80’s to early 2000’s of George Strait, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, John Michael Montgomery, etc. These artists put honky tonk back into country music in a way not heard since the Bakersfield days of the 60’s or the Outlaws of the 70’s. It’s when cowboy hats, pedal steel guitars, and swinging shuffles became cool again. So expect raw, twangy honky tonk that you can dance to or just tap your feet and drink to. Your call. Check out our website to see our upcoming shows, meet the band, and dig through our instagram feed for pictures and video clips of what to expect. PS Steel player Andrew Rasta is our resident Sommelier for our seasonal wine dinners and wine rep for Lifford!

$10.
