Spencer Joyce

Not your Mom's white guy singer/songwriter, Spencer Joyce defies the "singer/songwriter" stereotype with a sound composed of Ed Sheeran acoustic pop with Mumford & Sons folk, Sublime punk reggae, John Mayer blues, and the jam band sensibility of Dave Matthews Band.

Born September 11th, 1992 in Greensboro, North Carolina, Spencer took a keen interest in music from an early age, inspiring the "no singing in class" rule in elementary and middle school. Music became an escape for the young Spencer as a way to express himself and get through tough times at school and at home. After moving to Loudoun County, Virginia at the age of 15, Spencer picked up the guitar and began giving himself private lessons while also gaining the confidence to join Stone Bridge High School's Men's Choir, Chamber Choir, and Theater program. There he honed his craft and was able to successfully audition for, and perform in, Loudoun County VA's All-County and All-District Chorus, and performances of Sondheim's Merrily We Roll Along and Schwartz's Godspell.

Despite not having the funds to go to college and having to take odd jobs to make ends meet, Spencer marched on, and spent most of his free time practicing, making videos, performing at open-mic nights across the DMV and busking on the streets of Alexandria, VA and Annapolis, MD. This work ethic, along with his voice and songwriting skills, caught the attention of Daniel Hill, President, and CEO of Alchemical Records. Hill signed Spencer to Alchemical in September 2013, and Spencer released his debut single, Elephant In A Jar, in February 2015. In the span of 2.5 years under Alchemical, Spencer played many bars and clubs all across DC, Baltimore, Richmond and Northern Virginia including Jammin Java in Vienna, VA, Capital City Showcase in DC, The Camel in Richmond, and The Sidebar in Baltimore. Elephant In A Jar received airplay on stations such as WDCE 90.1 FM Richmond, VA. Ocean 98 Ocean City, MD, and 88.7 WXJM Harrisonburg, VA.

After a breif stint in the band Fight Past The Urge in 2016, 2017 saw Spencer's local career take off, releasing his debut EP, Bad Poker Face, in July and reinventing himself as a one-man-band, incorporating a live-looping station into his live act in order to create rhythm, bass, and percussion tracks right before the audience's eyes as well as incorporate electric guitar, keyboard, and harmonica parts live as well. The quality songwriting and superb production of Bad Poker Face and the live act described as "one part motivational speech, one part love-in, and one part dance party" got Spencer booked to play festivals such as The Nextival in Annapolis and Artscape in Baltimore, big showcases such as Monthly Mayhem at Angels Rock Bar in Baltimore and an opening spot for Higher Education at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, and 4 hour sets at places like Union Jack's in Annapolis and The Irish Whisper in National Harbor. Tracks from the Bad Poker Face EP also found their way into licensing deals for tv, film and retail stores handled by Mood Media, MediaNet, K-Digital Asia, and the Independent Filmmaker Project.

2018 saw Spencer play all across the mid-Atlantic, including his debut at Frozen Harbor Music Festival, the Maryland Chicken Wing Festival, Jimmy's Famous Seafood, the Preakness Balloon Festival, an opening slot for The Unlikely Candidates and Brick & Mortar at Metro Gallery, the Annapolis First Sunday Arts Festival, The Nextival, and The Prince George's County Fair. Spencer also made his Nashville debut in mid-August playing 4 different songwriter nights and finishing off the week with a performance right outside Bridgestone Arena.

2019 will see Spencer release a new LP, Songs About Nothing, and begin peforming with his new backing band, Spencer Joyce's Open Bar Band.

Chris Timbers Trio

Chris Timbers is poised to rise to the top once again. His story resonates with many as he found success, experienced failure and is now focused and poised for the climb back up. Chris’ story is one of passion, performance and well… prison. As a result, Chris has the life experience that allows him to draw from deep within. His words are indeed healing, inspiring and comforting as he so beautifully crafts them in to the songs we’ve come to know and love. Chris has been writing music and performing for most of his life. When he began to pursue it professionally, Chris’ blues/roots sound led him to front and write music for the Virginia-based band, Less Traveled. They found success together producing an album, developing a following, and touring regionally.

It wasn’t long before Chris’ talent was getting some pretty serious attention. With an endorsement from Godin Guitars and a spot opening for acts such as Agents of Good Roots, Merle Saunders and Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews and TR3), Chris decided to strike out as a solo artist and moved to New York, where he continued to work on his unique style and hone his technique. Chris became a favorite in the Brooklyn music scene, and sat in as a session guitarist on several indie records. Shortly thereafter, Chris’ success came to a halt as he battled substance abuse, decided to become involved with a motorcycle “gang” and suffered the loss of his only sibling, James at a young age. Chris ended up in prison with lots of time to think, reflect and write. Knowing it was time for change, Chris had to reinvent himself focusing on the positive but using past struggles to guide him toward a more positive life.

Due Process
Oct

to Oct 5

Due Process

Due Process was formed in the summer of 2006. Dean Schroyer and Kevin Costello, remain from the original lineup. Our current lineup is:

Dean Schroyer (Lead Vocals): Dean is known for being a rather energetic front man who makes the audience part of the show. His vocal range allows him to do songs from artists such as Journey to Muse or Chuck Berry to The Commodores with equal power. Dean most recently was the front man for Quasimodo. Prior to the "Q" days, Dean played with 151. He will make the show special… you’ll see.

Kevin Costello (Lead Guitar): When Kevin was 16 and asked his parents for a guitar, his father told him to “get a job!” Ever since then Kevin has known that hard work and good music go hand-in-hand. Kevin grew up with rock, blues, and funk, He still likes working across musical genres. He loves to capture the guitar tone of the original artists so that our covers sound identical to originals.

Milka Seka Tokic(Keyboards): Milka is a classically-trained keyboard player who can easily cover any of the current sound-effect laden songs to the most difficult classical arrangements.

Tom O’Neill (drums): Tom has experience with many bands (local and touring) and musical productions including a multitude of styles (RnB, Jazz, Country, Rock, and other more ethnic rhythms). He’s been drumming since sixth grade which means (just like the rest of us) he’s been playing music for 900 years. Music runs in his family (his dad was a jazz piano player) not unlike his Dad, he considers it a great thrill to play live. As he spends more time with Due Process, you’ll see him do some of the singing as well. Tom is married with six kids (when did he have time to practice??). When he does practice and gig, he likes to play his ’66 Ludwig “Jazzette” kit.

Anita Visser (bass, guitar, vocals): Anita lived in England for a time and played with rock & pop bands "over there". She is a skilled bass and guitar player with huge knowledge of chords and harmony.

Rule G

RULE G—"The use of intoxicants or narcotics is prohibited"—one of twelve general rules in standard code adopted by Association of American Railroads, based upon previous regulations made by individual companies. Countless thousands of railroad men, especially boomers, have been discharged for violation of Rule G; not because of railroads' objection to liquor itself but because a man under the influence of liquor is not to be trusted in a job involving human lives and property

Jay Powell

Jay is very much appreciative of the opportunity to share his love of music with you... As a professional, his goal is to entertain you and make sure you have a great afternoon/evening... On a regular basis audience members approach him and ask why he's not on a national stage yet, or make commentary like “I have NEVER seen anybody play a guitar and sing like that!” 
The truth is that it's very humbling when he hears it, but the most important thing is that it is being ENJOYED (versus TOLERATED). God gives each one of us something special...and he is thankful that you allow me to share his gifts with you. Part 2 of that truth is that YOU, the music lovers who pay cover charge and tips to support him in my career, should never get short-changed.
