Maiden Alley Cinema's Music @ MAC series features live music in the setting of a cinematic art house. Live music provided by Patrick Sweany. On a given night (or on a given album) he'll swing through blues, folk, soul, bluegrass, maybe some classic 50s rock, or a punk speedball. He's a musical omnivore, devouring every popular music sound of the last 70 years, and mixing 'em all together seamlessly into his own stew. Yet, the one thing that most people notice about Patrick isn't his ability to copy - it's his authenticity. Like his heroes, artists like Bobby "Blue" Bland, Doug Sahm, Joe Tex, Patrick somehow manages to blend all of these influences into something all his own.
The Maness Brothers hail from St. Louis and describe themselves as garage/doom/blues when referencing their genre of music. Beyond offering up some amazing music for your listening pleasure, they also put on a great live show!
Chris Black and the Eagles of Unemployment are Paducah-based musicians.
