An Evening With Parker Millsap - SOLD OUT!

Tangled String Studios is thrilled to bring the fantastic Parker Millsap back to Huntsville for a solo performance!  This young 25 year old musician from Oklahoma is truly a phenomenon, and wowed us in 2016 with his gospel-tinged rock and roll when he played for a sold out Tangled String Studios audience.  Tickets are $25. Bring your beverage of choice to the show!

READ WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT PARKER MILLSAP:

"Last night in Atlanta, I saw one of the best concerts I have ever seen... It restored my faith in music."
- SIR ELTON JOHN

"I wasn’t prepared for the wild, vast power of his voice and his remarkable charisma. This guy can yodel, he can sing a soul song for real, he can preach and he wiggles his leg like Elvis. A star in the making.”
- ANN POWERS, NPR      

"Sounds like Saturday-night hellbender spirits meet Sunday-morning evangelical fervor.  For fans of Patterson Hood, Jason Isbell, John Fullbright, Tom Waits.  Why you should pay attention: Witnessing Parker Millsap sing is a jarring experience, because the sights and sounds just don’t seem to match up: the slightly built 23-year-old from Oklahoma has a bluesy, powerful rasp of a howl that sounds equally suited for juke joints or church tents." - ROLLING STONE                                                                                                            

“Notably smart, sometimes acerbic, this charismatic new performer… rivets audiences with intense but smooth vocal whoops, cascades and pauses; emotional, blues-based slide guitar with punctuating harmonica..."
- WALL STREET JOURNAL                                                                                            

“His voice has the depth of some of the best blues musicians with a gravelly range that forces you to pay attention, if not to just wonder how the slender, fresh-faced Millsap is doing what you’re watching.  He’s got the boyish charms and the wild and dirty sound that comes from a life of hard living. It’s absolutely astounding.”
- TULSA WORLD

Young Performers Open Mic

Piper & Leaf and Tangled String Studios are working to foster young, local music talent (20-something and younger.) Kick back and enjoy the low-pressure atmosphere. Grab this awesome opportunity perform in a public venue using high end gear with no pressure.

Instead of a traditional cover charge, grab a Piper & Leaf drink then head over to Tangled Strings to perform or listen.

We will host Open Mic on the third Tuesday of each month.

Tangled String Studios is a premium performance venue used by professional music artists. The studio quality sound equipment will be set up for use. There is a piano and guitar on site.

If you know a young, aspiring artist, invite them to share their talent. Or participate; take the stage!

Note: This is for people looking to perform. Please bring prepared works. Offensive language will not be tolerated!
----------------------------------------
What about 'older' musicians? They are important too! Come listen and support the young artists. We are hoping to develop and foster the young ones through this initiative. ('Young' meaning roughly 20 somethings and younger). There are not a lot of venues that allow new artists to perform in a professional atmosphere. We may open it up if there is enough demand from the...ahem...'wiser' musicians.

Jon Stickley Trio - 7 pm

Tangled String Studios is excited to present The Jon Stickley Trio!  You do NOT want to miss this tremendously talented band doing what they do best… which is to create pure joy through what can only be described as exhilarating music.  Seating is limited so don’t delay.  Feel free to bring your own beverage of choice!

Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio, who’s deep grooves, innovative flatpicking, and sultry-spacy violin moves the listener’s head, heart, and feet. “It’s not your father’s acoustic-guitar music—Instead, Stickley’s Martin churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted other genres—all thoroughly integrated into a personal style,” writes Guitar Player Magazine.

Premier Guitar says, “Stickley’s trio… is not a traditional bluegrass group by any means… they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats as effortlessly as the old timey standard ‘Blackberry Blossom.’”

Eric will perform with some of our favorite musicians, drummer PJ Spraggins, Grammy nominated producer and multi-instrumentalist Kelvin Wooten, saxophonist Kelley O'Neal and bassist Sean Michael Ray.

Feel free to bring refreshments to the show!

Rob Aldridge & The Proponents is a rock n’ roll band based out of North Alabama.  Their goal is simple: write well-crafted songs and consistently deliver fun, authentic, relentless rock shows every time they plug in.  Their sound is tight and high energy with a broad dynamic range.

JIMMY NUTT (GRAMMY-WINNING ENGINEER/ PRODUCER/OWNER OF NUTTHOUSE STUDIOS)
“If you like badass guitar riffs, compelling lyrics and gut-wrenching vocals, you’re going to love Rob Aldridge and the Proponents!”

MATT WAKE (LA WEEKLY, PASTE MAGAZINE, AL.COM)
“The world really doesn’t need any more lukewarm Americana music right now.  What the world needs is some inspired new rock songs, and Rob Aldridge & The Proponents are doing their part.  You can tell this music has roots, but the songs never sound like tributes.  They sound like the pulse of a pissed-off band with some cool stories to tell.”

The Lilly Hiatt Band - SOLD OUT!

Tangled String Studios is excited to announce the Lilly Hiatt Band on Feb 16th!  Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of show.  Don’t miss this concert!

AllMusic:  A fine singer and gifted songwriter with a knack for rootsy sounds and smart, unpretentious songs, not unlike her dad, John Hiatt.

NPR:  In the hands of Lilly Hiatt, an examination of the wounds wrought by relationships is an occasion for exacting honesty. On Trinity Lane, the third album by this fixture of Nashville's indie scene and first for New West — which makes her a labelmate of her revered songwriter dad, John Hiatt — she's devoted to excruciatingly revealing expression, deftly manipulating the tone and perspective of her songwriting from track to track.

Pop Matters:  She writes and sings in the first person about addictions, bad love and such, in a voice scarred and innocent like a sinner reborn.  Hallelujah!  You’d have to be out of your skull not to appreciate her talents.  

No Depression:  Hiatt’s voice is unmistakably unique and special.

**IMPORTANT NOTE**   Tickets are non-refundable unless the show is canceled or rescheduled. Patrons are invited to bring your own beverage of choice! Venue capacity is 100+ seats
