Art On The Rocks presented by Dale’s Seasoning will bring you the best of Birmingham with three Friday nights of art-centered entertainment— from live music and dj dance parties, to artist demos and interactive mural-making. Art On The Rocks always brings out the fabulous and fashionable, and the 2019 theme will take cues from our exhibition, Ways of Seeing: Fashion.
Musical Guest: Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears
While working at a pawn shop in Austin, Joe Lewis first picked up the guitar. Shortly thereafter, he immersed himself in the local Red River blues/garage scene, recording and performing with Austin luminaries such as the Weary Boys and Walter Daniels. Upon the release of the 2005 Brian Salvi produced Black Joe Lewis and The Cold Breeze EP with standout track “Bitch I Love You” featuring Matt Hubbard on Rhodes electric piano and the 2007 album Black Joe Lewis, both released on Italian label Shake Yo Ass Records, the band gained critical national acclaim. Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears have performed at music festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Bumbershoot, Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival,, and Splendour in the Grass. The band has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Late Show with David Letterman, among others.

Musical Guests: Durand Jones & the Indications
Durand Jones & the Indications aren’t looking backwards. Helmed by foil vocalists in Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer, the Indications conjure the dynamism of Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, and the Impressions. This young band of twenty-somethings are students of soul, and use their inspirations the same way hip-hop producers do, borrowing from the sampling mentality. Even with that background, and an aesthetic steeped in the golden, strings-infused dreaminess of early ‘70s soul, the Indications are planted firmly in the present, with the urgency of this moment in time.
For July’s Art On The Rocks, Durand Jones & the Indications bring a sweet, soulful sound to Birmingham for the first time since the debut of their second album American Love Call.
Did you catch Tank and the Bangas when they performed at Saturn Birmingham in May 2017?

Fortunately for us, they’re back in the ’Ham on Friday night, Aug. 17, for Art on the Rocks at the Birmingham Museum of Art. Get tickets before they’re gone.
