The Miami-based Magic City Hippies will bring their indie-funk stylings to the Redstone Room on September 30 – the latest engagement in a busy year that has already seen the musicians opening for Hippo Campus's two-month national tour and enjoying summer-festival sets at SunFest and Bonnaroo.

Described by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune as “a powerful, animated blues-rock singer” and “a writer of praiseworthy originals,” singer/songwriter/guitarist Parker performs locally in a special concert event presented by the Mississippi Valley Blues Society.

Two signature forces in the 1990s' alternative-rock scene headline a special concert event at the River City Casino, performing both their early-'90s hits and numbers from the bands' past two decades of recording.

With Buzzbands.LA calling them “a group without any trendy gimmicks, a lead banjo player strumming with the same vigor as if on the electric guitar, and simplistic lyrics delivered with strength,” brothers Robert and Scott Cerny perform a local concert of acoustic Americana numbers a mere 20 miles from their hometown stomping grounds of Sherrard, Illinois.

Performing folk, pop, and indie-rock numbers that inspired Acoustic Guitar magazine to call them “a band that packs a tremendous amount of artistry and talent into their compositions,” Katelyn and Laurie Shook return to the Redstone Room in a fall tour that will find the sisters also traveling to Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia, and New York City.

Performing in support of the band's ninth album After You've Gone, released just last month, the rockabilly, blues, and Southern Gothic musicians of the Legendary Shack Shakers will be making their first appearance at RIBCO since November of last year.

While Palehound frontperson Ellen Kempner started the project in 2013 as an outlet for her diaristic solo songwriting, the band has since expanded to a proper rock trio that packs a punch to match her emotionally devastating lyrics.

With the Phoenix Blues Society labeling her “one of the most distinctive and expressive vocalists to come around in a while,” Davina Lozier and her band of Vagabonds returns to Davenport's Redstone Room in a concert held in advance of the band's fall-tour stops between Jacksonville, Florida, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Credited for reviving the European genre of “Country and Irish” – an Irish musical form that blends North American country stylings with Celtic influences – Carter, at age 27, has released nine studio albums and three live albums to date, five of which reached number-one on the Irish Albums Chart.

Described by Downbeat magazine as “charismatic and immensely talented” and called a “jazz innovator” by Billboard, singer/saxophonist/composer Kelly not only headlines Polyrhythms' monthly “Third Sunday Jazz Workshop & Matinée Series” on September 17, but appears locally as the first scheduled performer in Quad City Arts' 2017-18 Visiting Artist Series.
