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.

Jeff Thompson Trio Hits Altamonte Theatre Sept 3rd

Jeff Thompson's Giving Trio returns to Asheville for a wild and enchanted evening at The Altamont Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 3. 

If you have seen these guys before, you know they don't just put on a show. It's more like gourmet food for the ears and eyes. Take a few cups of Thompson's stellar lyrics, four octave vocal range, dextrous guitar work, and theatrical stage presence, blend with Aaron Price's delectable vocal harmonies and virtuosic keyboard work, sprinkle in James Kylen's masterful drum and percussion work, and you've got a five star meal. 

Be prepared to be treated to an evening of not only some of the most catchy and sophisticated jazz/pop/soul in the region, but to a gorgeous and creative stage set. Thompson, three time winner of a "Best of WNC" award in the singer songwriter category, also has a history in performance poetry and professional theatre, and likes to "to think of the whole show as a piece of art, from beginning to end. No wasted moments." (Performing Songwriter Magazine)

Special guests will be joining the core trio on stage, as per usual. Expect some of the area's finest musicians, poets, and other creatives to join them onstage. Nothing is unimaginable with this band.
