Time: 8:00 pm - 1:00 am

It seems with too much of the Wichita nightlife, the only thing that changes is the address. Refresh aims to bring something a bit different. A step up, to give people a reason to step out. An elegant venue with posh decor. Chill music for you to groove as needed, but not too loud to drive away your conversations. Appropriate lighting, and some cocktails designed just to suit the evening. And as we elevate, so shall you, finally giving you a place to wear those nice clothes to, and not have to worry about being out of place.

Dress to impress, strictly enforced (if you have a ticket and show up in sneakers, you won't get in, and no refunds, sorry)

Doors open at 8. Happy hour from 8-11, and then we keep going til 1.

In, 2014 the Terry Quiett Band will release their 3rd blues studio album. This release will be a look deep into their roots and their expression of rock soul. It,will leave you foot stomping, crying and playing your air guitar by the time it is all over.

In just a few years the Terry Quiett Band has become a mainstay across America's Heartland. From 6th Street in Austin...to the windy city of Chicago...through the mountains of Colorado...across the deserts of Arizona...jamming down on Beale Street in Memphis...wherever they go the TQB has won over young and old with their energetic and soulful sound.
Along the way they have forged a relationship with a 13-time Grammy-winning producer by the name of Jim Gaines. Jim is a veteran of the blues industry revered for his work with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Steve Miller Band, George Thorogood, Luther Allison, Albert Collins and many more. They have had a Top 100 Blues album in 2011 and a live album that has made a great mark in the blues world as well.

During this time,the Terry Quiett Band has shared the stage with legends including Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, B.B. King, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Walter Trout, Robin Trower, Tab Benoit, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Bernard Allison, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, .38 Special, Dave Mason and Los Lonely Boys.

A review of the bands for single off the coming 2014 release.
““Come the Morning Radio Single” Head gear may be necessary before listening to the new Terry Quiett Band single and we are not talking headphones. Instead, you may need to wear the protection sparring partners use as “Come the Morning” will punch you upside the ear. Blowing out of Wichita, Kansas like a blues tornado, Terry and his trio have followed up on the stunning achievements of Cut the Rope (2008) and Just My Luck (2011) with a teaser radio single prior to the release of a spectacular new disk in early 2014. The soulful singer, incisive songwriter and blues busting guitarist has drawn on his genuine empathy for the Delta blues of Robert Johnson combined with raw, kick-out-the-jams, rambunctious blues-rock not heard since the early days of ZZ Top.”
- Dave Rubin, Guitar Player Magazine

"Life is circular. Country just came back to me. It's like the acoustic thing. I did that before the band [Staind]. This is full circle because this was the first music I was ever exposed to as a child." --AARON LEWIS

If you want to get to know AARON LEWIS, just listen to The Road. On his first full-length album, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist tells one story after another. Echoing traditional country, some of those tales are hilarious and heartwarming, while others are pensive and personal. Nevertheless, they're all equally powerful, vibrant, and unforgettable. For Lewis, The Road continues to wind and surprise like it always has.
In 2011, the Staind frontman formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut EP, Town Line. Highlighted by the success of gold-selling single "Country Boy" featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #7 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Critical praise followed: PEOPLE’s Chuck Arnold said, "He proves to be a natural on nostalgic ballads like 'The Story Never Ends,’ (3/14/11)," while the ASSOCIATED PRESS’ Michael McCall wrote, “He injects a flavor of his own into a polished, commercial country sound in a way that could win over country fans who've never heard of Staind (2/28/11).”

"All eyes have been on J. Cole . . . Never lazy with the flow and constantly attacking the mic with clever rhymes and intriguing lyrics and content... –XXL Magazine
In an era saturated with upstart MCs all vying for the coveted status of "next big thing", the story of 30-year old North Carolina native J. Cole (born Jermaine Cole) is a refreshing exception to the quick route for fame and success. The first artist signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label, Cole made himself notable through a scholarly approach to the game - no small feat considering his Magna Cum Laude distinction upon graduating from St. John's University. Steadily developing his lyrical skills since the age 12, Cole studied not only the important musical and lyrical content of his youth, but the strategic career moves made by his influential forefathers.

FILTER
Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter's modus operandi since the release of their self-produced debut album, Short Bus. The album's rough-around-the-edges production consisted of inebriated answering machine samples, lavish bass lines, and jagged guitars set to a backdrop of drum machines punctuated by the unfurling of Richard Patrick's vocal prowess and signature roar. Patrick, Filter's magnetic, profoundly intelligent nucleus and frontman jubilantly admits that his creative process is unorthodox, whether he's staring down and conquering new technology or coalescing with new bandmate and co-conspirator Jonny Radtke on Filter's current release, The Sun Comes Out Tonight.

Kansas Star
Date: Saturday March 21, 2015
Time: 7:30 pm
Category: Concert / Live Music

Location: Kansas Star Arena
Price: Tickets start at $29
The six men comprising Styx have committed to rocking the Paradise together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. Styx draws from over four decades of barnburning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor that is “The Grand Illusion” to the hunker-down fortitude of all that is the “Blue Collar Man,” from the majestic spiritual love for a special “Lady” to the seething indictment of preening, primping pageantry for pageantry’s sake of “Miss America,” from an individual yearning for true connection as a “Man in the Wilderness” to a soul-deep quest to achieve what’s at the heart of one’s personal vision in “Crystal Ball,” from the regal reach-for-the-stars bravado of “Come Sail Away” to the grainy all-in gallop of that rugged “Renegade” who had it made, the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound.

Acts subject to change without notice. All ticket purchases are final and no refunds will be given after purchase. If a cancellation occurs, return tickets to the point of purchase for a refund. Persons enrolled in the Kansas Voluntary Exclusion Program and persons under the age of 21 may attend Kansas Star Arena events, but are prohibited from entering the gaming floor.

This group averages 150 shows a year and has a working songlist of over 200 songs from the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band catalog. For four years band leader Jimmy Tebeau also toured the country as the bass player for JGB (Jerry Garcia Band). The Schwag has opened for many noteable acts including String Cheese Incident, Marshall Tucker Band, Leftover Salmon, Sammy Hagar, Little Feat, and Railroad Earth. For many years The Schwag hosted its own Schwagstock music festivals drawing crowds of an average of 5000 people per event several times per summer. The band owned the venue Camp Zoe in Missouri where the festivals were hosted. Some of the bands opening for The Schwag at these festivals were George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Keller Williams, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. Some of the guest musicians to play with The Schwag over the years include Chuck Berry, Bill Nershi from String Cheese Incident, Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman from Leftover Salmon, Butch Trucks from The Allman Brothers Band, Fred Tacket from Little Feat, Mike Gordon from Phish, and Vince Welnick from The Grateful Dead. Honorary band members for full Schwag shows include Merl Saunders, Melvin Seals, Johnnie Johnson, Jason & Travis & Kang from String Cheese Incident, and Devon Allman (Gregg’s son.) From May of 2013 to May of 2014, The Schwag was primarily on hiatus, as lead singer Jimmy Tebeau served time in federal prison in Yankton, South Dakota for a music/drug related crime. The Schwag band is now stronger than ever on a perpetual tour performing a different show every night of high energy organic interpretations of the Grateful Dead.

JB and the Moonshine Band at The Cotillion

Date: Saturday April 4, 2015

Category: Concert / Live Music

Location: The Cotillion
Price: $15 adv, $18 day of show

JB and the Moonshine Band are a group of four young East Texans whose love for music brought them together in a somewhat unorthodox way. In early 2009, front man JB Patterson gave up a successful advertising career to pursue his dream of being a songwriter. After realizing how difficult it is for a songwriter to break into the music scene, he realized what he had to do—start a band and sing the songs himself!

JB listed an open casting call for musicians in his community. Turnout for the audition was small; only three people showed up, but three was enough. The group had an impromptu jam session and as JB describes it, “It was obvious. Halfway through the first song, I knew they were the Moonshine Band”. After a successful first show at local honky-tonk, JB and the boys were willing to do whatever it took to get their songs out there. “Our motto was if anybody offered us a gig, we would play it. We were going to play every show we could whether they offered us a thousand dollars or a hundred… or sometimes nothing at all”. With a jerry-rigged PA system and a rented U-Haul van, the boys travelled through East Texas, gaining a local following. The group’s big break came while opening for Average Joe’s Entertainment artist Colt Ford in March of 2010. The band’s country sound and outlaw attitude immediately caught the attention of Colt’s team, and in July of 2010, JB and the Moonshine Band signed a record deal with Average Joes Entertainment.

The band’s debut album, “Ain’t Goin Back to Jail” premiered in September of 2010, with Gabe Guevara on drums, Hayden McMullen on lead guitar, Chris Flores on bass guitar and JB providing lead vocals, banjo, and acoustic guitar. JB also serves as the band’s lyricist, writing all of the songs on the record, which is an accomplishment he’s particularly proud of: “What I like is that we write our own songs—I sing my own songs, and I think that adds an element of authenticity that country music fans appreciate. We’re not super polished, we’re not overproduced, we’re raw, we’re real, and we don’t apologize for it”. JB and the Moonshine Band will continue to tour and promote their debut album in 2012

The Black Violin will bring “violin like you’ve never heard it before” to the historic theatre at 8 p.m. on Friday, Apr. 10.

It’s hard to think of another African-American violin player to make their mark in popular music, so classically trained South Florida twosome, Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester, who go by the name Black Violin are a welcome revelation for their ability to meld highbrow and pop culture, “Brandenburg” and “breakdown,” into a single genre-busting act.

Tickets to see Black Violin on Friday, Apr. 10 go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 16 through Select-A-Seat.

No sky is bluer, no air crisper, no leaf greener than after a storm, and Travis Tritt is adding a musical addendum to that list with the release of The Calm After …. Part metaphor and surprisingly literal, the title is reflective of a fresh and focused start for one of the most successful and acclaimed musical creators of his era. The tumult his music has come through to get this point, however, is very real.

“I feel so humbled and blessed to be where I am right now,” says Travis, who will release the album on his own Post Oak Records. “My voice has never been stronger, I’m constantly playing and working to become a better guitar player, banjo player, vocalist and songwriter. I am honestly as excited about the creative process and performing now as I was the day I signed my first record deal.”

Back in their heyday, Black Label Society was bigger, more widely recognized, twice as beloved and infinitely more iconic than the trailblazers in One Direction. But then something momentous, diabolical, career altering and earthmoving happened: somebody, somewhere, lent Black Label Society band leader, guitar-squealer and verbose vocalization terminator Zakk Wylde a very, very twisted record collection. (Records, of course, are ancient artifacts from a bygone era of wondrous sound).

As soon as the needle hit the grooves, Wylde was transported to another world by the spellbinding power of Queen of Pop Helen Reddy, the soothing sounds of Barry Manilow, The Velvet Fog himself Mr. Melvin Howard Tormé and obscure, little known British invaders Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Wylde's formidable beard sprouted instantaneously, his bench press jumped from 50lbs. to 500lbs, and the Vespa beneath him transformed into a mean, gas-guzzling, Ford F350 SuperDuty.

Jackson Taylor is a story teller, plain and simple.

Combining his real life experiences with old school country elements, and throwing in the flavors of punk and southern rock to create a style all his own, Jackson Taylor continues to break the rules of traditional country music with his straightforward lyrics, "take it or leave it" approach, intense live performances, and the drive and determination of a freight train. The end result can not be pigeon holed into any style and can only be rightfully defined as what it is: "Jackson Taylor Music".

SoMo -- aka Joseph Somers-Morales -- will never forget being on stage as a kid. At six-years-old, he sang at a popular club on historic 6th Street in Austin, TX.

"I was way too young to be in a bar," he laughs.

However, his life took a bit of a detour away from music for quite some time. It certainly loomed in the background, but he had other things on his mind.

"My dad was in a jazz rock band called Duck Soup, and he wasn't always there," admits SoMo. "Because of the lifestyle, I just wanted to grow up, be normal, and have a family. My mom really raised my brother and me. I didn't fight music, but I didn't necessarily embrace it either. I wanted to do my own thing."

Throughout high school in Denison, TX, that's precisely what he did. He played football and hung out with friends, distancing himself from the proverbial "stage" as much as possible. However, in 2009, music called to him in the strangest and most serendipitous way. Receiving a piano from his mom for Christmas, he taught himself how to play by ear and recorded a cover of Chris Brown's "Crawl".

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless.
Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until Ol’ Glory has a studio record captured the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey live performance. “I wanted that crucial lived-in feel,” Grey says of Ol’ Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room.
Despite a redoubtable stage presence, Grey does get performance anxiety—specifically, when he's suspended 50 feet above the soil of his pecan grove, clearing moss from the upper trees. “The tops of the trees are even worse,” he laughs, “say closer to 70, maybe even 80 feet. I'm not phobic about heights, but I don't think anyone's crazy about getting up in a bucket and swinging all
around. I wanted to fertilize this year but didn't get a chance. This February I will, about two tons—to feed the trees.”

Granger Smith, the Texas born-and-bred singer/songwriter, has been busy reinventing the face of traditional country one chart-topping single at a time. By consistently providing blended hits that are well outside the realm of “typical,” Granger’s music provides a refreshing and unique variation on the growing independent country music scene.

Though he's been in the music business since he was a teenager, Granger doesn't always play by the rules, which he finds gratifying. "When I knew I wanted to be a singer-songwriter for a living, I never set out to be totally grassroots," he explains. "Probably no one does. At that time, there was a system and most people followed that system. Write a song, book a studio and musicians, play a showcase, get a record deal, get famous, request all green M&Ms."

“When I was a kid/Playing air guitar/Wishing I was a star/Just wanted a chance/To stand up here/And play a few songs for y’all”“Thanks for Listening”
Colt Ford is just an unassuming good old country boy from Georgia, a one-time pro golfer turned songwriter and musician who has struck a chord with his growing fan base. On Thanks for Listening, his fifth album on his own perfectly named Average Joes Entertainment label, he returns the favor, offering his audience a humble token of his appreciation.
With his groundbreaking blend of country music and hip-hop rhythms, Ford is a cultural force who is ready to go from cult status to a household name, from the mud trucker events where he started to arena stages, where he’ll next be seen sharing the bill with Toby Keith on his “Shut Up and Hold On” summer tour, where thousands of red solo cups will be raised in celebration.
The follow-up to 2012’s chart-topping Declaration of Independence, which remained on the Billboard Country Album chart for more than 58 weeks, Thanks for Listening features collaborations with such pals as Keith Urban (“She’s Like”), Duck Dynasty’s Boss Hog, Willie Robertson (“Cut ‘Em All”), Jerrod Niemann (“Crickets”), Randy Houser (“Washed in the Mud”), Justin Moore (“Farm Life”), Chase Rice (the first single, “The High Life”), Lee Brice (“Sip It Slow”), Walker Hayes (“Dirty Side”) and Daniel Lee (the title track).

Multi-platinum recording artists Chevelle is made up of Pete Loeffler (vocals, guitars), brother Sam Loeffler (drums), and brother-in-law Dean Bernardini (bass). Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal styling of Tool, the Chicago-based trio's aggressive, heavy sound is all about mounting tension exploding into raw guitar bursts.
"The Used emerged flipping two middle fingers at what passed for the rock n' roll status quo while snatching platinum, gold and silver certifications in North America, Europe and Australia and kicking open the doors of MTV and the Top 10.

Now freed of the shackles of corporate bureaucracy and even the limitations of geography (half the band now lives abroad), The Used is creating the most spirited and vitally essential work of their career.

Imaginary Enemy arrives with the wrath of a hurricane, railing against the mainstream media distractions that keep the populace complacent about poverty, disease, war, famine and the seemingly inevitable police state decimating privacy. Even as humanity grows more interconnected through technology, self-absorbed narcissism keeps much of the West with a nose in a smartphone and their empathy obscured. As The Used's lyricist/frontman Bert McCracken declares: "We need new heroes - or no heroes at all. We need more leaders and lessTwitter followers."
