VOWLS NYE at Cypress and Grove

Another great year off to a great start at Cypress and Grove Brewing Co. This show was curated by Russ Tyndall with the help of our expert sound engineer Tristan Harvey. Four local artists took the stage and ended 2018 with sweet music and good times.

Up first we had TJ Washburn from Orlando, Florida. TJ is a storyteller and his songs reflect that. His songs are intriguing, captivating and relatable. His new album Seasons is now available on major streaming platforms.
Here is his Youtube Channel and below is his video for an original song titled “St. George and the Dragon.”

Up after TJ was the local legends The Dozenaires. If you have been to Gainesville’s own Hoggetowne Medieval Faire and the Thornebrook Arts Festival then you know the exquisite Irish and World musical styling of The Dozenaires.

Next up VOWLS! After the Dozenaires sweet and nostalgic set Vowls took the stage to sing sweet songs to rock your soul.

After us the FUNKY MIRACLE brought the funk with a tribute to the musical styling of The Meters. The Funky Miracle had everyone at Cissy Strutting and dancing all over Cypress and Grove. They had the crowd moving during the whole duration of their set. They really FUNKed it up.
Featuring: Josh Lederman(pictured below), Jake the Snake, Russ Tyndall, Chris Pierce, Teig, and Chris Robertson(pictured below).

WELCOME EMILY!

We have added a new member to our collective! Meet Sweet Irene! She is a saxophonist, a kazoo extraordinaire, ukulele master, gourd player,  and she has the voice of an angel!

“Sweet Irene has been writing poetry and singing songs since she was a young girl. Being raised with strong musical influence in the household led to her dabbling a little bit with all sorts of instruments, if nothing else just to understand them. She has a jazzy-folk fusion vibe with sweet voice to tug at your heart strings. She currently plays from her list of covers while she prepares her originals for the public eye. She hopes that you enjoy her sound as much as she enjoys producing it!”

We are so excited to collaborate with you Emily!
