Album Feature – Charles Wesley Godwin – Seneca

 News  Comments Off on Album Feature – Charles Wesley Godwin – Seneca
Feb 212019

By Joshua Wallace

This does not feel like a debut record.  Charles Wesley Godwin’s Seneca is very deep and well thought out both in the lyrics and the music.  It’s a songwriter’s album, but at the same time the music is very layered. This album is a love letter to Godwin’s home state of West Virginia and the Appalachian region as a whole.  Let’s take a dive into some of these tracks.

The album kicks off with “(Windmill) Keep On Turning”.  This track tells a tale of the hard times and hard living in the the West Virginia countryside.  The track carries a nice beat and I love the harmonica work throughout. Another favorite track is “Hardwood Floors”.  It’s a simple story about two lovers going out on the town and tearing up the hardwood floors. The music is perfect for honky tonk dancing and I can see it playing well with live crowds.

The track “Shrinks & Pills” is about songwriters.  The deep songwriters that pour everything into every song.  They might not make much but they save a lot of shrinks and pills because of the songs they write.  I love the honky tonk piano in this track and the solo is something that has to be heard. “Seneca Creek” is another highlight.  It’s a story about a couple who builds a life by Seneca Creek in West Virginia. The song goes through the highs and lows of living in the region in the mid 20th Century.  It has a bittersweet ending and the story is well crafted. There is an acoustic version of this track that closes out the album in addition to the regular version.

Charles Wesley Godwin is one to keep your eye on.  His songwriting abilities are very impressive on this debut record and his singing sounds effortless.  I can’t wait to see him live at some point, hopefully in the near future. In the meantime, Seneca is currently out everywhere you can find good music.

Favorite Tracks : (Windmill) Keep On Turning, Hardwood Floors, Shinks & Pills, Seneca Creek

Legendary Venue Joyland Re Opens In Florida.

 News  Comments Off on Legendary Venue Joyland Re Opens In Florida.
Feb 212019

I personally have a huge bucket list of iconic venues to go to nationwide, and when some of them close I always get excited when one re opens. This iconic Saratosa Florida venue closed it’s doors last spring, and released a press package last fall, that the venue was under new ownership. They plan to continue to book national touring acts, of many genres.

I just recently made my first jaunt down to Florida two weeks ago, and wasn’t in the state for very long, but I plan to return in the future. I learned a lot about the history of this venue but I am just going to share with you the press release, and plan future work there.

BRADENTON, Fla. – Jan. 22, 2019 – The landmark Sarasota area live country music night club re-opens February 9th, 2019. 7pm – 2am

Joyland Country Music Nightclub, the popular live music dance hall in Bradenton, is under new ownership and will be re-opening it’s doors to the public after being closed for nine months. For decades the venue was renown in Southwest Florida as a favorite place to enjoy western themes, line dancing, fun and friends. Joyland’s 15,000-square foot concert hall, located at 5520 14th St. W., hosted big names in country music, such as Florida Georgia Line, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, and many more.

The previous owner retired and closed the club May 12, 2018. Joyland was purchased by Scott Serbin and Peter Mendelsohn, two members of the Daisy Dukes Band, a local country band that had frequently performed at Joyland.

“Thanks to Rick and what he created with Joyland, we don’t need to re-invent the wheel, we just need to add some spokes,” says co-owner Scott Serbin. “We missed this place as much as the rest of the Joyland crowd and we want it to feel like home to them again. We can’t wait to bring it back along with some incredible entertainment from national and regional acts on a regular basis, up and coming super stars, and to support the best in local country music.”

The club will be having a soft opening on February 9th and a Grand Opening in April. February hours will be Friday and Saturday 7pm to 2am. Wednesdays and Thursdays hours will resume in March or April.

“I’m happy to see the club re-open and happy to see it stay country,” said former Joyland owner Rick Lambert. “Scott and Peter have great ideas and are the guys to bring Joyland into the future.”

About Joyland Country Music Nightclub

The venue began in 1958 as an event pavilion at Joyland Amusement Park in Pinellas Park. Previous owner Rick Lambert’s family purchased it in 1987. The Bradenton club changed it’s locations several times before settling on the 15,000-square foot facility at 5520 14th St. W., in 1994. Since then the club has become a regular concert hall stop for big name national country music acts. Prior to it’s closing in May, Joyland was arguably the favorite country music themed night club among Bradenton and Sarasota country music and line dancing fans, with over 20,000 Facebook likes.
