Jake Berger Is Back Onstage In 2018!

Some of you have been asking when I will be getting back to booking shows like the 60s Rock & Roll Reunions. After the successful Double Door Inn anniversary show, I’ve decided to give them another round. Charlotte’s own Mannish Boys will lead the local charge back to the garage, with shows at Smokey Joe’s on February 16th, April 27th and July 6th. Jake Berger, Rob Thorne, Greg James and JC Matlak will bring all of your fave garage rock, psych and R&B. And Charlotte’s own Sidewalk Bob and Mitchell Kearney will be opening the Feb. 16th show. Show begins at 10pm, and tickets are five dollars. 

But wait, there’s more! The Mannish Boys will be playing the Evening Muse on Sunday, March 18th for a special live recording event. Showtime is 7pm for this show. Get there early, get loud and make some noise, and you’ll hear yourself (and the band) on record, some (hopefully soon) groovy day. And yes, a certain photographer/show promoter/tambourine player will also be lurking about. Come by, say hello, and ask me if I’ve made any more progress on my next books. And yes, your favorite FCP books will also be available at all of these shows

More on these, and more shows coming soon. Spread the word, and see you at the Rock Show.

Double Door Inn Anniversary Reunion Show, December 17, 2017

For over 43 years, the Double Door Inn was more than an old house on Charlottetowne Avenue. It was recognized as one of the oldest blues music venues in the United States, bringing in musicians of all genres to Charlotte, NC. It was the place that you went to hang out on Friday afternoon, or Saturday night. To meet old friends, and make new ones. What had once been the house built by the Wearn family, one of the prominent families in Charlotte during the early 20th centuries, become the home of the Charlotte music scene, and the place where owner Nick Karres oversaw countless nights of music and memories.

While we cannot bring it back, this show is a homecoming for the many that had the Double Door Inn pass through them, just as much as we passed through it. On the week that the venue would have celebrated its 44th anniversary, we bring together some of the musicians that made the Double Door their home. Lenny Federal Band, Crisis, and Woody Mitchell & Loafers Glory. We also will screen Live From The Double Door Inn, the documentary about the venue’s history and final days. We also welcome back Nick Karres and his family, who have been part of our own extended families for many years. 

Gather, return, and let the music play on.
