Friday July 8,2022Doors 6:30 Pm / Show 7:00 PM 21+$10Kenny Roby With his new album The Reservoir, Kenny Roby seeks some solace between the darkness and the light, gleans lessons learned and transmits them through a set of songs that are taut, tender and flush with both resilience and resolve. AMERICAN SONGWRITER (4.5 of 5 Stars)On The Reservoir, Kenny Roby dives deep to find beauty in tragedythe power of Robys songwriting is how well the stories connect with us all. NO DEPRESSIONWith The Reservoir, Kenny Roby affirms and reestablishes his spot as one of the (americana/folk rock/alt country) sub-genres most talented and evocative songwriters by using his introspective and sometimes piercing lyrics, wonderful melodies, and his affecting and charismatic voice to create one of the most emotional and impactful records of the year thus far. AMERICANA HIGHWAYSThe Reservoir tackles weighty issues of self-awareness and assessment. But Kenny Roby guides us through the process with compassionate insights and comforting, folk rock rhythms. In the end, its a tale of triumph and redemption thats both well told and well deserved. TURNSTYLED JUNKPILED MAGAZINEBRENT KIRBYOne of the Plain Dealers 25 Acts to WatchBrent Kirby is a nights stroll with a rock n roll romantic. This does not mean Kirbys merely a smitten troubadour, or a bard for the wayward but colorful life of musicians. Though his own songs bring up those immortal topics, Kirbys romanticism is much bigger than that. His songs start with the introspective stir of strum and voice, but just like his performances, quickly move outward and embrace the listener. Kirby, who grew up in Wisconsin and has lived playing music in places as varied as Chicago, Nashville, St. Louis, Milwaukee and Cleveland, has acquired a keen narrators eye. Playing bars and clubs since his early teens, his lyrics dictate life in the moment, not as nightly grinds, but as places where dreams really come to life in gritty color.Brent Kirbys been called by
