Josh Jennings Band at Chelsea’s

The Josh Jennings Band will be at Chelsea’s on Saturday, Feb. 9 performing what they call “twisted bluegrass/Americana,” a collection of all original songs written by Josh Jennings, guitar and vocals, and Bob Alexander, flatpick guitar. Kris Hurt provides the bassline on an upright bass. Jennings was the 2012 Ozark Folk Festival song-writing contest winner and according to Alexander they had a great time in Eureka and especially loved playing the bandshell at Basin Park. Last year this band from Joplin released their debut album Ol’ Car and have a second CD ready for release this spring. It is yet untitled so if you are inspired while listening to this upbeat, original music pass the idea along.

Chelsea’s will host a benefit for Dylan Sunday on Feb. 10 starting at 2 p.m. with music by Centerfuze, Blue Moon and The Skinny Gypsies. There will be a silent auction from 4–7 p.m. and a live auction starting at 8 p.m. Auction items are needed by Sunday at 1 p.m. or call (479) 244-6175 for pick-up. There will be a potluck and all covered dishes are welcome. Dylan was injured in December and has since had several surgeries and a 4 week hospital stay, the proceeds from this benefit will help cover staggering medical expenses.

Fat Tuesday is Feb. 12 and for this last hoorah before Lent begins, why not join the Pub Tour? Starting at the Pied Piper/Cathouse Lounge at 4:30 p.m., the party will wind its way downtown with stops at New Delhi, Eureka Live!, Henri’s, Squid & Whale, Jack’s Place, Voulez-Vous and ending at Chelsea’s. Mardi Gras celebrations at each pub should net enough beads to decorate your neck for next years’ parties.
