Davey O’ comes to B-Side from Buffalo Wednesday, September 22 from 6-9pm.
“One of these artists who takes a modicum of musical coal and squeezes it hard enough to produce some diamonds is the acclaimed singer-songwriter Davey O who has supported many top tier artists throughout his career. His new ten-song collection “…a bright horizon line,” is a continuation of this concise singer-songwriter’s testament of absorbing story songs.” – John Apice, No Depression

Jennifer Westwood and guitarist Dylan Dunbar share an affection for gospel, Texas blues, Stax, and Muscle Shoals era artists. Jennifer cut her teeth on gospel in Detroit before hitting the gritty local bars that set her career in motion; along the way performing back up for acts including Motown’s Carl Carlton, adding several Detroit Music Awards to her credit, including one for work with Sponge (Sony) frontman Vin Dombroski on a traditional country recording (Lalar V).
Dylan Dunbar spent his teen years refining his chops in local blues joints, moving on to perform with W.C. Handy award winners such as Chef Chris and Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones, as well as country artist Whitey Morgan. His dynamic playing style is a compliment to Jennifer’s broad vocal range and unique sound that invokes influences ranging from Linda Ronstadt to Big Mama Thorton.
Music for your dining pleasure will be performed by The Living Room Sessions from 7-10pm.
The Living Room Sessions
In Ireland, the pub is often the living room of the community – a place where friends come to talk over the happenings of the day, where families gather to catch up, where stories are told, and music is shared. The Living Room Sessions create an intimate atmosphere on the B-Side stage playing a wide variety of tunes from traditional folk to classical to funk to rock & roll.
