Farmer Jason (Jason & The Scorchers) - 3pm Kid's show Farmer Jasonhttp://www.farmerjason.comWhen internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Jason Ringenberg created his children’s music character FARMER JASON in 2003, he had no idea he was launching what would prove to be the most commercially successful creation of his storied career.With JASON AND THE SCORCHERS, he pioneered the fusion of punk rock and country that turned the music world on its ear in the mid-1980s. Their first record, LOST AND FOUND, still shows up on critics’ “best of the 1980s” lists, and there is an exhibit of them in the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME. When Jason went solo in 1999, the LONDON TIMES called him “one of the most dynamic live performers of his generation.” Jason could rest easily, assured that his place in rock’n’roll history was secure.However, with two sweet, beautiful, preschool daughters missing Daddy Jason during his 200 dates a year touring schedule, Jason wanted to make a CD that his kids could listen to while he was out globetrotting. Since they lived on a small farm near Bon Aqua, Tennessee, and Jason grew up on an Illinois hog farm, he reckoned that a roots oriented CD about farming and farm animals was just the ticket.Stylistically free ranging from high energy punk rock to spaced out jazz, Farmer Jason with producer Bradfute and studio ace Fats Kaplin pull out crazy oddball guitars, Turkish ouds, and instruments with no legitimate names to give the production ethos a quality that can stand next to any adult “hipper than thou” indie rock or alternative country release. “FARMER JASON HAS LEFT THE BARN!” Indeed.3pm showtime. Doors open at 2pm. $8 for both children & adults.Our fantastic restaurant, Taqueria Con Cuida, will be offering a kid friendly menu, so bring the family and grab a bite to eat before the show!Advance tickets available online and at our local outlets beginning SAT 1/12/13.
