December NKY Band of the Month – Doghouse

Willis Music Florence is proud to have Doghouse as our NKY Band of the Month.

Like them on Facebook for a 10% discount on your purchase.

Doghouse started in 2000, when four Northern Kentucky friends (Chuck Davis, Paul Riesenberg, Tom Schulte and Dick Stewart) started jamming. It became a frequent occurrance and started talk about playing at parties. We needed a bass player and stole the bass player (Ric Thelen) from Mr. Grumpy, a band with deity status in Maysville, KY, which was destined for break-up. The band played a grade school reunion in Nov. 2000 under the name Beer Nuts, without Tom. This was followed with a performance at St. Tim’s in Union, KY with Tom.  

The band had it’s first real gig under the name Doghouse (short for Doghouse Dick and the Instigators) at Southern Lanes in Alexandria, KY on March 31st, 2001. The band played many parties that summer, and started playing some bars on a regular basis. In the summer of 2002, the band parted ways with Tom, to become a full-force four-piece.  

In May of 2006, Paul Riesenberg decided to leave the Northern KY area for sunny Clearwater Florida, and so departed the band. But Paul was nice enough to give us a little notice and to our great fortune, we found Chris Moriconi, who plays great drums and isn’t too bad of a guy either. On 5/25/2006, we had a farewell and hello gig, where Paul played for half the night and then Chris play the second half, with both playing at the same time for a few songs. 

In July of 2010, Chuck Davis decided the rigors of the road, touring with Doghouse was just too much. He left the band but again was nice enough to give us a little notice and we were lucky enough to find Tim Waters, who has some great vocals and plays guitar and keyboards rather well. 

We’re also glad to welcome back Jim ‘Bobby’ Oaks to the pack to take pictures, help with sound and lights, and all the other things that matter.

He comes from several highly successful cover bands (My sister sarah, Marsha Brady, The Monday’s) from the Cincinnati area.

Florence Band of the Month October – Vernon McIntyre’s Appalachian Grass

Willis Music Florence is happy to have Vernon McIntyre’s Appalachian Grass as our October band of the month!

Vernon McIntyre’s Appalachian Grass is a driving, five piece bluegrass band established in Cincinnati, OH during the 1960’s. Vernon’s years of playing both banjo and guitar with the greats of bluegrass have honed his skills as an entertainer and make him uniquely qualified to define the traditional bluegrass sound of the Appalachian Grass. He began his professional career at the age of 15 playing banjo with Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys. He has since played with Walt Hensley, Jimmy Martin, Jim McCall, James Monroe, Mac Wiseman, and Scott Stoneman. Vernon was also a founding member of the Bluegrass Pardners of Wheeling Jamboree fame and his banjo work with the Easterners is well remembered.

Through the years, Vernon has made several appearances on the Grand Ole Opry stage. He appeared playing banjo with both Earl Taylor and the Stoney Mountain Boys and with Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys. When the Appalachian Grass was invited to perform at the Opry with Vernon as band leader, singer and guitarist, Vernon became one of the few who have been on that stage as a banjoist, a singer, and a guitarist.

Vernon has recorded many projects with Appalachian Grass that feature both his unique banjo style and his vocals and guitar work. Vernon’s matchless rhythm guitar is the bedrock for wife Kitty’s two fiddle instrumental recordings. During the 1970s, Vernon was a staff musician at Jewel Recording Studio and has contributed banjo and/or rhythm guitar tracks to innumerable recording sessions for entertainers such as Mac Wiseman, Jimmy Skinner, Charlie Moore, Rusty York, Lonnie Mack, Sid Campbell, JD Jarvis, Hylo Brown, and Bobby Grove.

Over the years, Vernon McIntyre’s Appalachian Grass has played concerts, festivals, fairs, colleges, radio, television, and exclusive nightclubs across the United States and Canada. In 1998, Vernon McIntyre’s Appalachian Grass won the CAMMY award for Best Bluegrass Band in the Cincinnati – Tri-State Area. The band’s exploits even include the grand opening dedication of an historic cemetery!

As emcee, lead singer, and rhythm guitar player, Vernon McIntyre infuses the Appalachian Grass with the warmth and spontaneity of a small family gathering even when playing for thousands of fans. He combines bluegrass history and stories with showmanship and humor to deliver top notch entertainment. Vernon’s wife, Kitty McIntyre, brings to the group some of the best bluegrass fiddling that you can hear. Audiences always enjoy her energetic performances as well as her trick fiddling act. Known for the quality of their singing, the group’s vocals are a blend of smooth and intricate harmonies that are a delight to hear. Hard-driving banjo by Robert Campbell, mandolin by Wayne Haddix, and upright bass by Tammy Powers round out the Appalachian Grass sound.

With Vernon McIntyre’s Appalachian Grass on stage you’re sure to get old-fashioned entertainment at its best!

Florence Band of the Month – Stonehaus Trail

stone 2

Stonehaus Trail is a Cover band located in Northern Kentucky that plays at local bars, Private Parties and weddings! The name Stonehaus Trail came from a little place in Melbourne, KY that we had to pass when going to band practice out our drummer Tommy Brewer’s dad’s house. The name of the place is actually Stonehouse Trail but all five members of the band have German in their ancestry so we changed it to Stonehaus Trail. We incorporate fun upbeat music but it is not uncommon to hear rare jams like Cortez the killer (Neil Young), Little Sister (Elvis) and No Excuses (Alice in Chains) come out of our setlist.

Florence – July Band of the Month – Bruce Menefield

menefieldSaxophonist Bruce Menefield speaks out of his own personal experience.  His career has been marked by his ability to mix talented musicians into exciting ensembles that have spun off into independent artists.  The groups he has developed are known to keep a “hard groove” and deliver a musically strong message.

The “sweet” saxophone sounds that Bruce Menefield constructs are colored with gospel, blues, bebop and funk, allowing the versatile sax range of his tenor, soprano, alto and baritone instruments to be heard succinctly and clearly.  Positioned to be a Soloist, his CD’s are written compositions of creative instrumental variety stylistically designed to be performed “in the moment.”

An intricate part of Cincinnati’s jazz heritage, Bruce has performed among some of the best in jazz. such as  Hugh “Peanuts”Whalum, Clark Terry,  Ronnie Laws and John Blake. He was one of the “Four Tenors” in a landmark concert at the Hyatt in 2005 which included a frontline of Billy Harper, Bennie Maupin and Edwin “Eddie” Bayard.  Bruce has produced many live concerts, including a 3-year run of the “It’s Commonly Jazz” series at Jordan Crossing, an annual free event for Cincinnati’s own.  He highlighted his series with the likes of McCoy Tyner and Hank Crawford.

In 2008, Bruce Menefield’s Omni Works Music was founded to provide educational and performance services that would continue the rich legacy of jazz as an African American cultural contribution to our society.  A studio producer, he has written, recorded and produced his own music under his record label, Black Sax Records with his last CD entitled “More Steps.”

His extensive life experience in the field of music has enhanced his understanding and acceptance of the urge to create as an outcome that belongs to God.

March Cincinnati Band of the Month

 

Misnomer was born in basements. Originally from the northern suburbs of Cincinnati, Misnomer is a band full of interesting individuals that set out to break down the conventional boundaries of popular music. By implementing various influences and styles, Misnomer offers a familiar sound that exists within the paradox of “contemporary” versus “classic”.  They refuse to recycle, yet retain a sense of familiarity and freshness. The music that is produced by their individualistic, non-generic format has the effect of making an audience want to shake their booties, bang their heads, and groove with euphoric melancholy, through a sound that has never reached ears before.

In the early years of the band, Randy Clark (drummer) and Kyler Davis (guitar/vocals) formed a strong relationship based solely around a mutual love for the art, craft, and expression of music. After developing their abilities further, they decided to recruit Dominic Franco (bassist) to the line-up. As a 3-piece, they established themselves and developed an identity through their interesting and unique sound and approach. Misnomer added the fourth member, Logan Brown (multi-instrumentalist), after collaborating with him to independently record and release their first full length album.

Misnomer has played in the Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, and Northern Kentucky circuit for roughly 4 years. After finally picking up momentum, they decided to release their first full-length album in early 2016, which will be followed by an extensive tour in the summer.

Now that you have met the band, go check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, anywhere you can find them online! Come in to Willis at Moeller Music West Chester and show an associate that you “Liked” their music page on Facebook and receive discounts!

Misnomer keeps their fans updated with the latest news, music, merchandise, promotions and whatever through various social media accounts.
