Roosevelt Dime Brings Blues, Rock & Folk to Germantown

October 22, 2014

This Thursday, the Black Rock welcomes Roosevelt Dime, a five-piece Brooklyn-based band, which takes listeners on a journey through the whole of American roots music, from Americana and Memphis soul to "Mardi-Gras"-a bedrock of New Orleans rhythms that brings driving, melodic banjo, fat-back blues guitar, pure honky-tonk harmonies, and deliciously dirty vocals along for the ride.

   Their high energy live shows have thrilled audiences at premier festivals across the country, and countless more have been captivated by the exceptional songwriting on their latest release “Full Head of Steam,” which climbed to number six on the Folk Charts in New York and number eight nationally. Roosevelt Dime has recently been featured in Relix Magazine, CMT Edge, Performer Magazine, The Bluegrass Situation, and the Alternate Root Magazine.

   Roosevelt Dime performs on Thursday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 pm, tickets are $15 to $28 are available online or at the Black Rock box office.

   On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 25 and 26, The Black Rock Center will host Taylor2 a vibrant, six-member touring company. This is an adjunct of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, which brings all the athleticism, humor and virtuosity of Taylor's works to intimate stages everywhere, and they will shine brilliantly in Black Rock's Dance Theater.  During their two-night engagement, Taylor II will present some of the most popular works in their repertoire. While in town, Taylor 2 will lead a master-class for Black Rock dance enthusiasts. The workshop is free but reservations are required. RSVP here. Tickets are $15 to $28 are available online or at the Black Rock box office.

   Next week, Fancy Nancy the Musical will be presented at the Black Rock Center for two shows on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 11:00 am and Sunday, Nov. 2 at 3:00 pm.

Fancy Nancy and her friends Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel are going to be performing in their very first show, “Deep Sea Dances.” Nancy is positive that she and Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. This 50-minute show manages to entertain both adults and children. Tickets are $15.

   Next Saturday night, Nov. 1, Kate Davis will perform at The Black Rock. Lauded by MTV as one of 2014’s “15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop,” multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Kate Davis has been turning heads in New York’s music scene since 2012. Whether she’s crooning rootsy ballads or plucking bright riffs from her bass, the gutsy singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon, puts a fresh spin on the standards and brings a sensibility to her own lush tracks.

   Vivid, nostalgic melodies materialize out of Kate’s musical arrangements, her songbird voice complimented by a rich rock ‘n’ roll bass-line. She’s been invited to share the stage with such diverse artists as Alison Krauss, Josh Groban, Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles, and Renee Fleming. She’s performed at The Kennedy Center, The Bowery Ballroom, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall.

   Kate Davis will perform on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 8 pm. Tickets are available for $22 either at the Black Rock box office or online.
