Charlie Mars

(Early Show) Asbury Cafe Presents Acoustic Rock feat. From Oxford, MS, Charlie Mars (Mars has come upon the ideal musical vehicle for his achingly soulful, Gram Parsons-like drawl and languorously meditative songs.) and special guests.

Mississippi-born singer/songwriter Charlie Mars is a country- and folk-inflected pop artist blessed with a warm vocal croon and a knack for crafting poignant, earthy songs. Born in 1974 in Laurel, Mississippi, Mars grew up listening to various styles of pop/rock, from Michael Jackson to the Violent Femmes. Just prior to his senior year of high school, Mars moved with his family to Jackson, Mississippi, where he attended Jackson Preparatory School and played in the band Adley Madidafus. After graduating high school in 1992, he attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. During this time, he began seriously pursuing a music career, often playing with fellow SMU student, singer/songwriter Jack Ingram. It was also while at SMU that Mars formed the Charlie Mars Band and released several albums, including 1995's Broken Arrow, 1997's Born & Razed, and 1999's End of Romance.

Along with this early success came a hard-partying lifestyle and taste for alcohol that found him disbanding his group and entering rehab for a month. In 2001, looking to start fresh, Mars moved to Sweden where began writing new material. Re-energized, he returned to the United States where he spent time in Austin, Texas and eventually released his 2004 self-titled album on V2 Records. After settling in New York City in 2008, he began work on what would eventually become his "Texas Trilogy." Recorded with producer Billy Harvey and a core group of musicians in Austin, the trilogy includes 2009's Like a Bird, Like a Plane and 2012's Blackberry Light. In 2014, Mars rounded out the trilogy with the release of his seventh studio album, the Harvey-produced Money. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi

Acid Mothers Temple is a Japanese psychedelic rock band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest vocalists.

The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.

Kawabata initially formed Acid Mothers Temple (originally "Acid Mother's Temple") with the intention of creating "extreme trip music" by editing and dubbing previous recordings, being influenced by progressive rock, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and krautrock.

Ben Sparaco and The New Effect
Sunday, May 12
Doors 6:00pm, $10/$12
(Early Show) The Saint Presents From Nashville, TN, Ben Sparaco and The New Effect and special guests. On Sale Friday 2/15 at 10am.

Ben Sparaco and The New Effect is a genre-defying trio based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Led by young guitarist/singer/songwriter Ben Sparaco, the band features Adam Discipio and Anthony Quirk on bass and drums respectively. Between the three you an hear influences from modern indie rock, classic jam bands, Blue Note era jazz, and everything in between. Ben Sparaco and The New Effect formed in 2017 when Florida-born singer, songwriter, and guitarist began playing with drummer Anthony Quirk and bassist Adam Discipio. Now based in the flourishing musical oasis of Nashville, TN, Ben and the band have maintained a massive touring schedule, cutting their teeth playing coast to coast in clubs and festivals.

Sparaco spent his teen years making a name for himself in the jam scene of the southeast, playing with members of the Allman Brothers Band, Dead and Company, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and more before he had even turned 21. This included a touring stint in late Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks' band. After recording his 2016 release "Bring the Jubilee EP" with a Florida-based group of musicians, he moved to Nashville. There, he amassed a group of some of Nashville's finest to record his debut solo record "Wooden" with producer Ross Holmes (Mumford and Sons, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes), which also featured a guest appearance from Luther Dickinson.

After finalizing The New Effect's powerful lineup with Berklee College of Music graduates Quirk and Discipio, Sparaco's songwriting started drifting from his southern rock roots, showing indie rock, new wave, and pop influences, evident on the EP "Greetings, from Ben Sparaco and The New Effect." Following this with the single "Scared of The Dark" in the fall of 2018, Sparaco and his band have earned glowing press reviews, further establishing themselves as up and comers to watch in the indie rock world.
