Friends Uncorked w/Andrew David Weber

Friends Uncorked, 111 S. Friendswood Dr., Friendswood, TX 77546

8:30pm - 11:30pm, with special guest Andrew David Weber from Wisconsin.

Andrew David Weber: Singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Andrew Weber is a native of Southeastern Wisconsin, currently living in West Bend, WI.

Andrew's love for music began at an early age and was fostered by his mother and father who paid for guitar lessons at the age of 10. From a young age, Andrew received encouragement from both parents, and they continue to be supportive of his musical ventures to this day. He quickly developed a talent for learning instruments, and found enjoyment in music. Throughout his childhood, Andrew and his friends formed several bands and practiced. It was during this time that Andrew began to dabble in other instruments and found talent as a musician. As a musician, Andrew's influences are wide ranging, from 90s punk rock to classic rock and heavy metal. These influences can be heard in his work with Whiskey Of The Damned as well as in his original material as well as in the group Oct. 29, an occasional side project with a few local friends and fellow musicians that dates back to Andrew's high school days.

Grifters & Shills: His was hard rock and heavy metal. Hers was the classic sound of the East Texas piney woods. Theirs was a fiery collision, bearing forth a sound that was at once novel and instantly familiar--nodding to roots seated deep in high lonesome harmonies and back porch blues, while peering out at a scorched path bound by modern assertions and contemporary commentary.

Behind Grifters & Shills is John and Rebecca Stoll, native Texans who met in a classic rock/blues jam band in 2008. Between them they discovered a magnetic chemistry that manifested not only in music, but in all aspects of their relationship. When they began playing as a two-piece band, they found a unique voice in the combination of Rebecca's East Texas vocal stylings and John's formidable guitar work. They immediately began writing their own songs, while testing the waters of vocal harmonies and adding an array of instrumentation to their arsenal. A typical show will feature a delightful range of electric instruments, including John's archtop guitar, Rebecca's bass, a driving stomp board, a couple of cigar box guitars, a handful of harmonicas, and an occasional kazoo.

They call it high lonesome heavy metal, and together, this two-person, dozen-instrument act provides a show full of sound a fury, punctuated with raw, quiet vulnerability, forging new trails and shining new light on familiar ground. NEW ALBUM “LONG TONGUE LIARS” AVAILABLE NOW.
