Join us May 18th for our venue's first birthday celebration in Jefferson City with the very talented Beth Bombara! REO Feedwagon will provide delicious house-made food outside the venue, and we'll have great cocktail and draft beer specials inside!
With a folksinger’s head and a rocker’s heart, Beth Bombara has built her career on an evolving sound that blurs the lines between genres. To those who make their living onstage, she’s a musician’s musician — a road warrior who writes her own exemplary material, plays multiple instruments, and fronts her own band, often a duo with her husband. With 2017’s ‘Map & No Direction,’ Bombara’s songs take aim at a larger audience with melodic hooks that showcase a love not only for roots-rock, but the irresistible punch of classic pop, too.
Beth Bombara was quite impressive… These songs from her new album, Map & No Direction deserve the attention.

“Recall the times you were so filled with melancholy you couldn’t help but singing. We rarely have the words to describe these feelings and it can leave you in a daze. Beth Bombara’s words and the desperation with which she so honestly conveys them will leap like sunshine into your heart.”
- Pokey Lafarge
“Beth had [the room] packed to standing room only with people waiting to get in as the text messages flew for others to join what their friends had just stumbled across. She has such a great vocal sound along with her road-hardened guitar skills that make me think you’re going to hear more of her in the future.”
- Shawn Underwood, Twangville
“From the opening snaps of the snare drum, you get nothing but passion and brilliant lyrics from Beth Bombara’s “Map and No Direction.” From radio friendly Americana to lonely, sit in the dark songs that absorb you into their being, there’s something for just about every emotion that makes us human. This is why we need art to exist. “
