Music by Bobbo and The Fallen Stars

“Singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Bobbo Byrnes of The Fallen Stars and Riddle & The stars delivers plain spoken, heart felt tales of love, life and day to day existence in his new CD release Motel Americana with remarkable clarity. He’s the man you meet at the small town lunch counter that freely shares his colorful stories of this and that. Only difference is, Bobbo puts his earthy stories to music for all the world to hear much like Steve Earle and Willie Nelson have over the years. Motel Americana features a familiar cast of players that have appeared on past Byrnes recordings that include singer-bassist Tracy Byrnes, singer Ben Riddle, cajon kit player Matt Froehlich, drummer Brandon Allen, violinist Geo Hennessey, B3 organist Rami Jaffee and slide guitarist Travis King, all who bring their respective gifts to this well crafted project. Songs of particular note include the pensive “To Her Door,” the radio friendly (and our favorite) “APB,” the reflective “Hate This Town,” the resonator fueled centerpiece “Millsboro,” and the raucous electric Americana rocker “1, 2, 3.” Motel Americana is a well conceived album worthy of repeated listening. Good stuff! ”

CBS Los Angeles named it “Best Folk Music show in The OC” in 2017

He calls it 'Outlaws of Folk Music Series’. Michael hand picks some kindred spirit musicians- established recording artists, touring, local singer songwriters & performers from Los Angeles, Orange County & Long Beach to do the night with him. Each artist does a thirty minute set and sometimes a final 'Sing Out' jam at the end of the show together. It’s the real deal.
It’s the held first Thursday of each month. The music and Outlaws Series is spreading. Michael has taken it on the road before and it tours from time to time, but Bogart’s is the new Thursday homebase for the Folk Series in beautiful Seal Beach.

Please support the musicians & songwriters.

Americana singer-songwriter Rick Shelley emerged into the Southern California music scene in 2015 after connecting with multi-instrumentalist, producer Chris Unck (Pink, Butch Walker, Black Roses).  The pair worked out of Unck’s Hi-Lonesome studio in Joshua Tree recording Rick’s solo EP, “1909 Miles,” which arrived in November of that year. Working off the EP’s momentum the two continued to collaborate in the studio and released a follow up “Hope Wrapped in Razor Wire” in March of 2017.  Both records received award nominations with “Hope Wrapped in Razor Wire’s” song “Dead Horse Hollow” receiving International Songwriter’s Competition (ISC) semi-finalist recognition. 

Rick’s sound has earned favorable comparisons to Jackson Browne and Steve Earle. A richly evocative storyteller, his songs employ an economy of language that recall Texas troubadours like Robert Earl Keen and Guy Clark. He shares his hard-won wisdom with pathos, humor and grace. Every narrative accompanied by indelible melodies and killer hooks. www.rickshelleymusic.com
