Phil Vassar's unbounded energy and limitless talent have proven him, again and again, as one of Nashville's most prolific and versatile stars. Those who best understand Phil Vassar – good-time, piano playing, boundless energy on stage, hardest-working-man-in-the business– also understand the ongoing evolution of his original music.

This Virginia-born songwriter and musician has undoubtedly made his mark in Nashville as an acclaimed artist. Phil's known not only for his gift for hit songwriting, but also for his compelling and highly entertaining skills on the piano. His uniquely piano-based, rhythm and blues-infused, infectiously buoyant brand of music has carried Phil throughout his career and remains his specialty in the genre.

His resume boasts numerous hits for artists including Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina, and Collin Raye, and many more hits as an artist in his own right. He's been named the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year twice and has taken top honors from the Academy of Country Music, Billboard MusicRow, and also honored by the the CMA's. Some of Phil's accolades include two time ASCAP Songwriter of the Year, Billboard Magazine Top New Country Artist, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year, Music Row Magazine Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and ACM Top New Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of The Year- just to name a few.

With his self-titled artist debut on Arista/Nashville, Phil took his seat as country's leading piano man with the success of songs like "Carlene," "Just Another Day in Paradise" and "Six-Pack Summer." Since then he's continued to prove his worth time and again with releases like "American Child," That's When I love You," "In A Real Love," "I'll Take That as a Yes (The Hot Tub Song)," "Last Day of My Life" and "Love is a Beautiful Thing."

The Soul of R&B Classic Concert Series featuring ZAPP at The Cotillion

  • The Soul of R&B Classic Concert Series featuring ZAPP at The Cotillion
Cotillion
Date: Saturday May 31, 2014
Time: 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Category: Concert / Live Music

Location: The Cotillion
Price: $36.50 ADV, $41.50 DOS
he nucleus of Zapp circled around three of the five Troutman brothers: Lester, Larry and their younger brother Roger. The duo of Lester and Roger started several groups including Little Roger and the Vels. Larry eventually joined his brothers when their name became Roger and the Human Body, which also included youngest brother Terry. Larry was then the road manager and the leader of the group in terms of all major decisions and connections.

The name change to Zapp came courtesy of Terry, whose nickname was that of "Zapp". Discovered by members of P-Funk in 1979, the funk collective's leader George Clinton signed them to his Uncle Jam Records. When that label folded the following year, the group signed with P-Funk's parent label, Warner Bros. Records, and began working on their first record at united sound in Detroit album courtesy of co-production from Bootsy Collins.

Released in the late summer of 1980, Zapp's seminal self-titled debut album became a platinum success peaking at the top twenty of the Billboard Top 200 thanks to the success of their leading single, the Roger composition, "More Bounce to the Ounce", which reached number two on the Hot Soul Singles chart.

Continued success

Zapp's trek to fame continued within the Troutmans, who started Troutman Enterprises shortly after the Zapp album was released. Roger, who was the leader of the group and most famous for using the talk box in his recordings, was also the band's producer, chief writer, arranger, and composer. He and older brother Larry, who served as percussionist in the band's early years and later retired from music to serve as his younger brother's manager, often collaborated on songs together. Roger and Zapp worked on both group albums and albums Roger released on his own merit. Within five years, the band scored more top ten R&B hits such as "Doo Wa Ditty", "I Can Make You Dance", "Heartbreaker", and ballads such as "Computer Love (R&B #8)" and a cover of The Miracles' "Ooo Baby Baby". Among the songs, only one of them - 1982's "Dance Floor, Part 1" - managed to hit number-one on the R&B chart while two of Roger's solo numbers - a cover of Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and "I Want to Be Your Man" - hit the top spot of that chart. By 1985's New Zapp IV U, the group had scored over four gold records and had become a top concert draw all around the world.

Graham Colton is not new to the music scene, but his recently released album, Lonely Ones, is a complete reinvention of his formerly-pegged singer-songwriter style. Inspired after returning home to Oklahoma City, along with a budding friendship with Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne, Colton is taking a new approach to music. Musically, Lonely Ones runs a wide gamut, veering from synths to guitars to strings, full of psychedelic flourishes and big production. But at its heart: a real sense of melody and plenty of choruses to wrap your head around.
