18 Dec The Queens Head Live Music Rundown
If you’re ever strolling through the Grand Central District on a weekend night and you hear music…it’s probably us. At The Queens Head, we have a variety of local talent that plays regularly at our fine dining establishment. From singer-songwriters belting out originals to musicians giving their own touch on all your favorites, here is a rundown of our house musicians. Also, at the bottom of the post, find out how you can get a free shot and maybe your tab on us on December 23!
You and I
Tony Mawdesley and Kim Hightower make up this singer-songwriter duo. Originally hailing from Indian Rocks Beach, this group plays throughout many different venues in the Tampa Bay Area. Their ambient sound along with their folksy influences create an intimate atmosphere wherever they play. Some of their main influences include The Civil Wars, Fiona Apple, Ray Lamontagne, and Peter Gabriel.
Coming all the way from Palm Coast, Florida is this acoustic two-man band. With Christian on the cajon (a Peruvian box-shaped percussion instrument) and Nico on the guitar, these real-life brothers play a wide range of music. From classics to originals, they’ll have your feet tapping along throughout your night at the Queens Head. Every show they play has a little bit of something for everyone.
With 15 years of professional singing experience, you know that she’s the real deal. From Florida to New York, her career has spanned the coast and many major record labels. Her soulful vocals have stopped many in their tracks while walking down Central Avenue and she’s one of the only acts at the Queenshead that performs here multiple times per month. Every time she plays, she always brings her well-deserved following of fans.
Jon Plauche and Shady Hills
By himself, Jon Plauche is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter. With his mandolin, guitar, and harmonica, he brings a folk-influenced sound at the venues he plays. When joined by his collaborated Jeremy Johnston, the two form a musical act called Shady Hills. With their creativity and eclectic sound, it’s hard to pin the two with any one genre. You can catch them every last Friday of the month at The Queens Head.
With 150 songs in his arsenal, Steve Issac knows all the classics and then some. From The Beatles to Radiohead, Isaac’s sets are almost like an introductory course to rock history. Besides giving his own acoustic spin on many favorites, he also has a few original folk songs up his sleeve. Not only is a regular performer at The Queens Head, but he also hosts our open mic nights every Thursday.
So there’s the run-through of some of our live music regulars at The Queens Head. Also, on December 23rd, we’re holding our Ugly Sweater Party. Simply throw on an ugly Christmas sweater and you get a free shot. If you do possess the most hideous sewn abomination, then the tab is on us.
Stop by The Queens Head between 8 pm and 11 pm to participate and happy holidays!
