Rock Groove: The Saint & ElmTree Present From Burlington, VT, Soule Monde (Ray Paczkowski & Russ Lawton, Must Be Nice album release tour on Ropeadope Records. Ray and Russ are both current touring members of Trey Anastasio Band.) and special guests.

Soule Monde (Ray Paczkowski & Russ Lawton) is avant funk erupting from the syncopated minds of power drummer Russ Lawton + B3 wizard Ray Paczkowski. An ideal union of swagger and raw talent, the duo is cemented into an indestructible pocket, where bold improvisational leaps by either player are met by a near-telepathic response from the other. Ray has an intrepid knowledge of the Hammond B3, playing it as fearlessly as Han Solo flies the Millennium Falcon through an asteroid field, while his left hand lays down bass lines on the clavinet with the ferocity of the meanest four-string, soul-cat. Russ is constantly responding to his partner's attacks, pushing the groove further and deeper while holding the pocket like he's handcuffed to the snare. This is the jazz-duo your parents warned you about.

Wesley Stace & The English UK

+ Special Guest Peter Holsapple
Hosted by Rich Russo's 'anything, anything'
Doors 7:30pm, $15/$20
Rock: WRAT "The Rat" DJ Rich Russo's "Anything Anything," UMT Presents and The Saint welcome Wesley Stace & The English UK with special guest Peter Holsapple.

Formerly known by his stage name John Wesley Harding, under which he has performed and recorded for the past 25 years, Stace chose to step out from behind his well-established pseudonym for Self-Titled in honor of the increasingly personal nature of his new material. "Novels seem to take care of the intellectual business for me these days, and my songs have become a lot more intimate and autobiographical, requiring a different musical treatment entirely. It seemed ridiculous to sing them under any name but my own," notes Stace, adding, "It's time to bring everything under one roof." Stace co-wrote two of the tracks from Self-Titled - "Stare at the Sun" and "When I Knew" - with the Fiery Furnaces' Eleanor Friedberger. Stace's version of "Stare at the Sun" is streaming at The New York Times while his version of "When I Knew" can be streamed at The Wall Street Journal. Under his legal name, he has written four novels. He is also a university teacher and the curator of Wesley Stace's Cabinet of Wonders and leader of Wesley Stace & The English UK. This year, Yep Roc Records will release Wesley Stace's John Wesley Harding.

Peter Holsapple was one of the key figures on the North Carolina jangle pop and new wave scene, He is perhaps best known to his fans as singer, guitarist, and songwriter along with Chris Stamey in the dB's, but he's also worked with a wide range of other acts, been a sideman with R.E.M. and Hootie & the Blowfish, and was a member of the roots rock supergroup the Continental Drifters.

at The Watermark, 800 Ocean Ave., Asbury Park, NJ
Doors 7:00pm, $18/$22
UMT Presents and The Saint welcome Shannon McNally to The Watermark with special guest Arlan Feiles. Show 7:45pm.

With a time-stopping voice, born in New York but simultaneously roughed up and refined by New Orleans and Mississippi, Shannon McNally has cut a singular path through the musical landscape - one that includes a Grammy nomination and a place on the stage with a who's who of rock, country and soul: Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Levon Helm, Dr. John, Bobby Rush, Derek Trucks, and most recently, Americana legend Rodney Crowell who took the producer's chair for her upcoming release on Compass Records, a collection of transcendent folk-blues and country-rock songs that are poised to solidify her place as a peerless Americana songwriter and performer.

"Only Gram Parsons' term "Cosmic American Music" begins to touch her mercurial, changeling roots aesthetic ... McNally is a Zen-like, post-Beat song poet." - Thom Jurek, All Music

The Billy Walton Band
Saturday, June 10
Doors 7:30pm, $12/$15
UMT and The Saint present The Billy Walton Band (Premiering their new album "Soul of a Man"). Openers: TBA.

There was a time when the Jersey Shore represented the best in American entertainment. Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, the Rat Pack, Dick Clark, Chubby Checker, they all made stops on the Jersey Shore. Tony Mart's was the club Levon Helm was playing when Dylan called. Of course we all know what happened in Asbury Park. The town, ravaged by riots in the late '60s, became a melting pot of musical experimentation. Late night jams that ended when the sun came up were the norm. Bruce Springsteen & Southside Johnny were the two acts that made their way to an international stage from these humble beginnings.

For decades musicians have come and gone, always hoping to make a living and pursue a dream. Billy Walton is no different. Billy's proving ground was Long Beach Island. There he was chaperoned from gig to gig by his Mom, two young to drive around and enter the clubs on his own. He was always up for a jam and looking to learn some new tricks. For years Billy spent his time sharpening his skills, developing his stage act until he decided to step to center stage with the Billy Walton Band. The band has focused its effort in Europe. 20 tours since 2007 have established the group in the fertile British Blues Rock scene.

In 2010 Billy got the call to join with one of the masters of the Asbury Park sound, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. For years Billy toured with the Jukes. Most people don't know that the creative force behind Southside was none other than Little Steven. A highpoint in Billy's tenure with the Jukes was when they recorded a live version of Southside's interpretation of the classic Little Steven album, Men Without Women, with Little Steven performing in the band!

This show will present the Billy Walton Band with horns, organ, keys, and kazoo! It's a can't-miss show as the band will be presenting its new release, Soul Of A Man, for the Asbury Park scene. Recorded in Hawaii and Philadelphia these new songs represent 10 years of hard work and development.
