First Friday Denton – Banter Bistro

First Friday Denton – Banter Bistro

Friday February 1, First Friday @ Banter Bistro

Music:
6pm – Alex Blair – awesome jazz vocalist with Austin Byrd on keys!
8pm – The Future Eyes
“The Future Eyes were formed in 2011 as four friends came together to put a live sound to the extensive catalog of Denton based singer/songwriter Kelbe Schrank (pronounced, “shronk”), including two previous self-produced albums. The result has been an entirely new true collaborative effort, with Schrank still the primary songwriter, but with new found energy and a dynamic genre-bending sound; an amalgam of indie rock and folk with veins of blues and funk streaking through. With the bold beats and rich harmonies of James Grisham, evocative bass lines of John Oliviera and soaring guitar crescendos of Jason Cook, The Future Eyes leave contrails across the minds of listeners.”
10pm – Ellie Meyer – “Ellie Meyer is an up and coming artist into the music scene, with vocals and song lyrics that will make you want to listen for more. All of her songs are based on life experiences and inspirations that either Ellie, herself, or those around her have experienced”, DentonRadio.com

Art:
Also we have an art exhibit of sketches by local artist Bryan Kelly. The show represents one year of daily sketches by Denton based illustrator Bryan Kelly. This collection includes all 365 sketches posted between February 10th 2011 and February 10th 2012. These sketches were initially posted, with captions, on his website, bryankellyillustrations.com and on his facebook account also called Bryan Kelly Illustrations. Bryan continues to post sketches five times a week, Monday through Friday. The Friday sketch is presented as a full color illustration.
