This Week at Chroma: Dough Rollers & First Friday

A Little Support

A Little Support

New York based blues and country band the Dough Rollers will play at Chroma Studios in Downtown Albuquerque tonight at 7pm, yet another great show from our Intimate Concert Series.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $10 at the door.

The Dough Rollers are made up of Malcolm Ford on mandolin and lead vocals, Julia Tepper on fiddle and vocals, and Jack Byrne on guitars and vocals. The band says it came together in late 2008 based on a mutual appreciation for the music of early-20th-century America. They have been playing steadily in the New York and Los Angeles areas since. The band describes its influences as including Charley Patton, the Memphis Jug Band, Gid Tanner and his Skillet-Lickers, Johnny Horton, Bob Wills, and the gospel of Professor Johnson, giving rise to a wide-ranging repertoire. Recently, they have been featured on 88.9 KXLU, Los Angeles, and AM 1700 WPMD, Cerritos, and will be playing dates nationally through the end of the summer. The band’s MySpace page is at http://www.myspace.com/malcolmandjack.

This Friday is our monthly 1st Friday opening from 6-10pm. This month’s featured artist is Brendan Gould and his show “A Little Support” is a collection of his recent portrait paintings in oil and drawings in charcoal. In addition to more great new art, we will have Dave Hoover playing his beautiful harp music in the performance space.

Tomorrow Night: The Real Matt Jones!

Singer/Songwriter Matt Jones will be performing at Chroma Studios tomorrow, Friday, March 20th at 7:00pm. He will be the second performer in Chroma’s new Intimate Concerts Series.
Matt Jones is a singer/songwriter that looks to the idiosyncrasies in life and magnifies them to the point where listeners say, “Oh yeah, I can see that.” Matt is originally from Albuquerque, NM and has performed in numerous areas all over the United States (he just needs to get the East Coast now) and in Canada. He would like his brand of light-hearted pop/rock to be challenging yet palatable in the ears of his listeners, and for them to be able to whistle his tunes the rest of the day.
The emphasis in Matts music is on songwriting, vocal ability, and rhythmic nuances. While Matts songs are resoundingly pop-oriented, he likes to entice listeners with interesting arrangements and subject matter. These elements tie together to make music that has great replay value, and is easy to remember.
Matt is currently touring with his latest musical effort, Passerby. Matt is a two-time New Mexico Music Industry Award nominee; in 2005 for Best Mainstream Rock song for his song Magic recorded with guitarist/producer Larry Mitchell (Tracy Chapman), and in 2006 for Best Rock/Alternative Song for his song Hang Around. Matt also played in the showcase for the 2006 Durango Songwriters Expo in Santa Barbara, and was also a featured performer at the 2004 Expo. Matt has shared the stage with a number of different artists including Paolo Nutini, Brett Dennen, Sister Hazel, Michael Martin Murphey and Matt has even opened for the great Rod Stewart. . .is this the Matt Jones for you?
