A mainstay of the Dayton music scene for nearly 24 years, Shrug have made a name for themselves with their brand of honest, literate Rock & Roll, with particularly close attention paid to song craft and heartfelt live performances that have earned them a remarkably loyal following in the Gem City. Shrug debuted in September of 1994 as an acoustic-based trio and, in the many years since, have evolved into a five-piece electric outfit that should appeal to fans of such artists as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Wilco, and Elvis Costello. They are currently recording their 6th studio album, a follow-up to 2016’s Age Of Ashes.
Funky, cool, fun, and rootsy, Trey Stone and the Ringers are a veritable who’s-who of Dayton music. The band began when Trey moved to Dayton in 2011 and began performing his New Orleans-inspired originals at the venerated Canal Street Tavern. From there members gathered, and the band is now a nine-member powerhouse, featuring players from several other well-known area groups, as well as current and former members of the Dayton Philharmonic and the Air Force Band of Flight. The center of the band is Trey’s skilled piano, influenced heavily by Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, James Booker, and the other great piano professors of New Orleans. Backed up by the great rhythm players from the area, as well as a three-piece horn section, Trey sings both his many originals, and sprinkles in a few numbers from America’s rock-and-roll and R+B past. Expect to have a good time, and bring your dancing shoes!
