Live in the Loft at Birch: Tyson Davis & Friends

Live in the Loft at Birch: Tyson Davis & Friends

This Friday night and every Friday night in November, Birch at Williwaw welcomes Blackwater Railroad Company frontman Tyson Davis & Friends as part of its intimate live in the Loft music series!

Frontman, singer, guitarist and songwriter, what DOESN’T Tyson do? His North Carolina heritage shows in his down-home, old time country lyrics. He started his musical career in the barbershop quartet, “The Frenetic Four.” So the next time you see him, pouring his heart and soul into that guitar and microphone, just try to imagine him in a trim little suit, with a white-banded hat, and curved cane.

Boy Bands VS Everyone Dance Party @ Williwaw

Boy Bands VS Everyone Dance Party @ Williwaw

Williwaw and DJ Spencer Lee are excited to throw a special edition video dance party on Friday, January 19th -- Boy Bands vs Everyone Video Dance Party at Williwaw -- where the best boy bands from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and today compete with the best of the rest bands and artists for your dancing and sing-a-long pleasure!

Don’t bother trying to fight the urge to sing along with the Backstreet Boys. Stop pretending like you’re too cool for N’Sync. And there’s no use in hiding the fact that you had New Kids on the Block dolls and pillow cases in your childhood bedroom (and maybe still in your apartment today).

Because we know a secret: you love boy bands. Why? Because boy bands are super awesome, and you’re a super awesome person. And as a super awesome person, you’re smart enough to understand that pop music, harmonizing, and dancing in unison isn’t something to make fun of – it’s something to celebrate and emulate. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do with our latest show, Boy Bands vs Everyone Video Dance Party at Williwaw... 

Backstreet’s back! All right!

Late Night Honky-Tonk w/ Todd Grebe and Cold Country

Late Night Honky-Tonk w/ Todd Grebe and Cold Country

Todd Grebe & Cold Country are based out of the wilds of Alaska, where for years they ruled the bluegrass scene in this state. Todd’s wife and musical partner, Angela Oudean, was a key member of famed Alaska bluegrass band Bearfoot for years (Todd joined Bearfoot as well), and though it may be a surprise to some that the music they make now is hard-driving, electrified honky-tonk at its core, the truth is that there’s a strong current that unites bluegrass and country - Live at Williwaw after the Alaska Beer & Barleywine Festival!
