    Jefferson Hart and the Ghosts of the Old North State In 2013, after 23 years as Jeff Hart and the Ruins, the band renamed themselves Jefferson Hart and The Ghosts of the Old North State (after the album of the same name). Jeff has also been playing solo under the name Jefferson Hart since early in 2013. In 2014, Jefferson Hart and The Ghosts of the Old North State released, Corolla Ponies In The Snow, which was the culmination of a 12 week song writing project in which Jeff wrote a song a week for 12 weeks and posted them to SoundCloud. The title track was inspired by a YouTube video of ponies running on the North Carolina Outer Banks during a snow storm. “His prize possession is a guitar signed by over a dozen of his heroes including Paul Westerberg, John Hiatt, Robert Earl Keen, and Matthew Sweet - with a combination of that foursome providing a decent description of Hart's sound ... and from a Byrds-eye view, the pre-Clarence White Byrds.” - Rick Cornell - No Depression “I challenge anyone to find a better in-the-wee-hours song than the exceptional 'From Now On' with such lines as "Colder than the backside of your pillowcase". Lesser artists have made careers of such songs. ” - Record Exchange Monitor Perhaps the final quoted line was a tribute to the beloved, late local, Stuart Scott. Rest In Peace. Check out a video from one of their prior performances at The Kraken: http://vimeo.com/111212408 http://www.reverbnation.com/jeffhart Doug Davis and the Solid Citizens Doug Davis has been a fixture on the regional scene for many years, as a producer, sideman, a leader of the Triad community project, the Vagabond Saints' Society, and as an all-around musical instigator. But his heart lies in his original music, which he performs solo, in small combos (often with violist and accomplice, Susan Terry), and with his own crack band, the Solid Citizens. The Citizens feature husband-and-wife team, Lee and Susan Terry, on various stringed instruments; Ken Mohan on bass guitar; and Dan DesNoyers on drums. Over the course of the last six years, the band has been honing its sound together, releasing its debut, Penny Brown Penny, in 2008. Since then, they've set out to release a series of four six-song EP's. The first two, 2012's A Pageant of Gold and 2014's The River Running Slowly, have been released, and the band is currently working on the third in the series. Doug also performs and writes with Mt. Airy, NC, based roots-rock band, Mediocre Bad Guys, as well as with the rock-soul combo, Doug Davis & the Mystery Dates. Doug has also performed with Chris Stamey, Sally Spring, Mark Kano, Artie Lamonica (the Shirts), Jerry Chapman, and many others. His music has been featured in dozens of television shows and films, including "Saturday Night Live," "Dateline," "The Voice," and "Last Call With Carson Daly." http://www.dougdavis.ws/index/ 9PM $free, Please tip your bands and bartenders
