FIREWATER TENT REVIVAL
Oct
13
to Oct 14

FIREWATER TENT REVIVAL

The Firewater Tent Revival comes from a small fishing village, located just outside of Jacksonville Florida known as Mayport. Not quite Bluegrass, not really Country or Rock, this “High-Energy String Band” performs music that playfully entertains a crowd with storyteller-style lyrics and bluegrass instrumentation. Done "jam band" style with a rock and roll attitude, Firewater simply makes you want to dance. They find themselves in high demand with a schedule filling out fast, and have become staple fixtures at live-music venues throughout Jacksonville such as Fly's Tie Irish Pub and Bold City Brewery.

The group recorded their first EP "Sinkin' Boat" in February 2015. Two months later in April, Firewater played their way into the hearts of Jacksonville's public, where they were voted to win 3rd place in the popular crowd funding festival "One Spark."

"When it ain't fun to do anymore, it's over" is the perspective that the band maintains, and since 2010, fun is exactly what it's been. The typical fan finds themselves staying an extra hour or 2 and ordering another round because "Firewater is playing til close!"

Ample Angst

Genres: Indie, Folk, Country, Introspective, Lyrical

Recently released Thunder and Rain, featuring legendary cellist, Dave Eggar, is on Spotify, Pandora and Itunes. Look for performances on 89.9 WJCT, Jacksonville, Florida and 93.1 WLNR, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale as well rotations on CMR Europe and WWOZ.

Ample Angst is the most recent musical project of songwriter, Mike Bernos, who after the successful creation of the blues-rock driven, Spice and the Po Boys, reconnects with his introspective folk roots. To best express his lyrically influenced songs, he brought together vocalist, Olivia Chernyshev, the velvet-voiced veteran of Jacksonville's musical theater scene, young violinist Joseph Henderson, and multi-instrumentalist and co-collaborator of several years, Cyrus Quaranta. The chemistry has produced rich musical textures and compelling harmonies between the crystal-clear mezzo-soprano of Chernyshev and the John-legend tinged voice of Quaranta.Bernos displays a broad musical range and a lithe lyrical touch with the four songs he penned for the EP, Thunder and Rain. Between the elegiac ballad, "Let Her Go" and bluesy shuffle, "Neon Love," there is some New Orleans honky-tonk and folk-gospel, which, go straight to Bernos's Catholic and indulgent roots curated in that great musical city. The band caught the attention of legendary studio and performing cellist, Dave Eggar, who is featured on the EP.

Gwen Yvette

GwenYvette is an independent R&B/Soul music singer from Beaufort, S.C.  An artist with extraordinary talent and vocal range, the Harlem-born, St. Helena Island product first picked up a microphone at the tender age of three and performed before community audiences.  As a teenager, she entered the music scene in the early 1990's, singing for a popular local band and later touring with well-known artists Roy C and Kenny Lattimore. In 2012, the songstress had a successful run on the national entertainment show, Fox's "The X Factor," where she qualified for the Hollywood Round.

In 2015, GwenYvette launched her solo career and released her debut single, "So In Love," in February 2016. A few months later, she released the official music video, showcasing Beaufort's beautiful Waterford Park and signature Gullah Geechee influence. "So In Love" has since been well received and has pushed her career forward, garnering national media recognition and performance opportunities at various venues across the country.  Recently she won Female R&B Artist of the Year at the 2016 South Carolina Music Awards.

A survivor of depression in years past, GwenYvette endured personal heartbreak and also faced constant rejection from industry executives who said she did not have "the look" for showbiz. While it took her several years, she decided to use those negative experiences as motivation, and she pushed forward as an independent artist intent on aiding the resurgence of R&B/soul genre. On July 22, 2016, she is releasing her second single, "Victorious," which references her past struggles with depression, self-doubt, and the process of overcoming obstacles to achieve her career and life goals.

GwenYvette uses her music to inspire, to spread love and to address important issues in modern society. She was quoted as saying - "Overall, I want people to see that you are never too old, too fat or too anything to pursue your dreams! Pursue!"
