Country / Rockabilly / Roots
Howdy from the rainy, not really that icy but chilly outskirts of Nashville,
I wanted to take a moment and let everybody know that our show at Richard's
Cafe this Saturday (December 7th) has been changed from a usual 6:30 start to us
kicking things off at 5:00 instead.
If you have seen one of these emails and noticed that we play Richard's
Cafe every month then you may have thought "I'm gonna have to catch them
down there sometime" and put it off for another time. Unfortunately if you
want to experience us rockin' at the amazing cajun cafe then there will not
be another time to do so in the near future. Other than the occasional appearance
there, we will no longer be on monthly rotation. This desicion was made because
we are shifting our focus to touring more and making sure we have the weekends free
to do so.
I pass this news on with a very reflective and appreciative heart. Around 5
years ago, cafe owner Richard Trest gave me the opportunity to perform regularly
at his energetic, fun, family resturant. Since then we have called Richard's
our "home base". The cafe audiences over the years have been an incredible
blessing to me! It has been on that stage that I tried out many songs for the 1st
time, trusting that I would recieve the feedback I relied on to know whether the
song was a keeper or should be thrown back. These performances not only helped me
narrow down songs to perform, but I have been able to have a regular place that
nurtured the songwriter in me (rather than just singing hours of covers and getting
folks drunk). It is there that I have been able to grow as a performer and develop
the band and the "sound" we strove for each individual, original song
The food is amazing, the staff is laid back, fun and friendly (and incredible
talented in their own right), and the sounds of Richard jumping up on stage slappin
that metal neck tie to the beat of a rockabilly tune is truly unique to the Richard's
Cafe experience! It doesn't take much coaxing to get Richard to pour his heart
out on one of his original clasics such as the very touching "Wish Well Spent"
or the foot stomper "Cherry Bomb" and many more. I have had the honor
of sharing the stage with him and rocking as he wails at a lead with his mouth harp.
Richard's Cafe resonates with Richard Trest's personality and passion, which
is why people love to go there. He is an incredible storytelller, writer, performer,
business owner, cook, and friend.
My point is that each show there has been very special to me, and we will certainly
play there again when the opportunity rises...but not on a monthly basis. So take
this opportunity to brave the ice storm that didn't happen and come on out to
Richard's as we rock it out this Saturday at 5:00 PM!!!
"Adam Pope’s The America That I Know EP opens with almost two minutes of
historical moments recorded during pivotal times in the United States. From there
Adam rolls into the first song, “The America That I Know.” Having written
all the songs, Adam delivers a heartfelt performance on the material crafted from
his beliefs and thoughts about America. “This Song’s For The Man”
will resonate with people across the country." Brenda Madden, Country Entertainment USA
"Adam Pope is more
than just another country songwriter from the south. He creates music that I think
people of this genre have been craving for a while now. Progressive, but traditional.
It is easy to tell that Adam has been influenced by the country greats, and he does
them justice with his songs." Paul Ruth, "The Independent Music Scene"
"A little country,
a little rockabilly, a little roots, a little humor, a little love, a little lonely,
ALOT of entertainment!" Steve, "Overheard in the alley of my mind"
