davis-rogan

Salvage Station is proud to announce that Davis Rogan of HBO's TREME will be performing a free show on Wednesday, November 11th at 8pm. Davis is a fifth-generation New Orleanian who served as an actor, scriptwriter, piano coach, and songwriter as well as the muse for the popular character, Davis McAlary, over the show's four-year run. 

Davis draws his musical inspiration from Professor Longhair and Fats Domino, as does every New Orleans rhythm and blues piano player. What separates Davis is his lyrics. The wit, irony and self-deprecation echo Randy Newman, but the wry observations about life, humanity and New Orleans are uniquely his.

On Friday, November 11th, Comedian James Adomian will perform two shows in downtown Asheville at The Millroom. Adomian will appear at 7:00pm and 9:30pm.
 
James Adomian is a daredevil dancing queen — but don’t you know deep down he’s just a kitten? James was a finalist on the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, and his debut standup album Low Hangin’ Fruit is now available on Earwolf.

James' many insane characters appear as celebrated guests all over the podcast-o-sphere. He is a staple on IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang! and guest stars on the new season of Children’s Hospital on Adult Swim. Catch James live performing standup and characters across the globe at festivals, comedy clubs, gay bars, rooftop parties and radical political events.

Adomian has a hilariously spot-on impression as Bernie Sanders in his popular live touring performance “Trump vs Bernie” mock debate with comedian Anthony Atamunuik. James is also hailed for his impressions of Jesse Ventura, George W. Bush, and Gary Busey.
