Event Details

Jon Stephen Braught lives in Keene, NH. A former corporate fancy pants sales guy turned rogue musician non-conformist with a penchant for delivering something new every time he’s on stage. Jon’s relationship with his electric guitar is clearly symbiotic. The sounds they make move toward something bigger. The music is always unpredictable. Will you hear a stoner influenced wall of fuzz or a gently picked acoustic ballad when he plays? Sometimes you even get both because rules don’t mean much in that kind of space.
Jon’s music is honest and yearning. He weaves stories both lived and imagined into heartfelt lyrics that reflect the emotion of each world he enters. Sometimes brooding, sometimes boastful, sometimes full of swagger and often introspective, Jon is no stranger to laying out the world in its brutal beauty. He’s a devoted student of the melodies and stories of his country influences and then pushes those sounds one step further by weaving them together with a rock’n’roll mentality that bites with sarcasm.
When he’s not writing his own music as Jon Stephens, he also plays with the NH based Modern Fools on lead guitar and backup vocals.
Afton Wolfe is Mississippi. Born in McComb, and growing up in Meridian, Hattiesburg, and Greenville, Mississippi, the roots of American music are in his DNA. Mississippi is the birthplace of at least three American art forms: country music, blues music, and rock and roll. Meridian is the birthplace of Jimmie Rodgers, while the Mississippi Delta is the birthplace of the blues, and the first rock n’ roll notes ever played according to intelligent music historians, came from Hattiesburg. Additionally, he spent his musically formative years in and around New Orleans, where the humidity of the Mississippi combined with the Cajun seasonings, the jazz, zydeco, creole, and gospel music, and his Mississippi roots coalesce to add resonance and depth to his blues/country/rock influences.
This is a special early show; doors open at 5pm and music will start soon thereafter. Seating is first come first served.
