Stacy Mitchhart has built a worldwide fan base thanks to phenomenal live performances, national television exposure, radio airplay, loyal enthusiastic fans and aggressive marketing and merchandising campaigns. His masterful guitar work and strong vocals have been the driving forces behind his successful career. He has won numerous industry awards, released 7 CD's and 1 DVD/CD, and holds 13 major endorsements. Stacy Mitchhart actively tours the US and abroad.

Mitchhart moved to Nashville in 1996 and took up residency as the house band for the hugely popular Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar in historic Printer's Alley. "Moving to Nashville has been fantastic. I lived in Los Angeles and New York and made a good living, but I've played with cats here that I wouldn't have been able to (play with) anyplace else - James Brown, Keb' Mo, Steven Stills, Gatemouth Brown, Joe Sample and other cats like that. I even played with John Entwhistle of the Who," Mitchhart says with a chuckle. "I'm a Yankee in Nashville doing the most non-country thing I can do."

Stacy Mitchhart is widely recognized as the best show in Nashville, and as instrumental in the club being awarded "The Best Blues Club of the Year 2000" by the Blues Foundation. Whether playing Nashville or on the road, the thing that Stacy likes most about his audience is it's wide mix of music fans. "They are basically not blues fans, but come out to see my show because it’s good entertainment. I want people when they walk out of there that not only did they get their money's worth, but if they had paid twice or three times that amount, they would feel that got their money's worth."

the Irving Theater welcomes
Ross Hollow
 7:00p / seating starts at 6:00p
 $10 suggested
 all ages
 This is an outdoor show.   Bring a lawn chair or blanket

Ross Hollow's music makes you want to stand up, dance, sit down, laugh, tap your toes, hum along, snap your fingers, listen to the words, drink beer, attend church, smell the rain, enjoy life more. It has the kind of catchy melodies and verve that keeps you humming the songs long after you've heard them for the first time. With roots in New England, the Southwest, Chicago, The Carolinas, Mississippi Delta, and Indiana, Ross Hollow's music can transport you to all these places and more, with driving bass funkadelic, solid dobro twang, melodic guitar riffs, wailing harmonica, scintillating ebony and ivory stylings, backwoods banjo rolls, and the backbeat that just won't stop. We would love to bring our distinctive blend of Americana, folk, blues and modern indie music to a venue near you soon.

All this hype around Moxxie has gained national attention. They've shared a bill with the likes of Lizzo, Florence and the Machine, K. Flay, AWOL Nation, 311, Blue October, and David Cook, just to name a few.

Moxxie is made up of two badass musicians: Jessie Phelps and Rocky Rodriguez. Jessie is the quintessential front woman. She is the essence of Moxxie and its creative force. Her lyrics are simple, yet compelling and memorable. Her crunchy guitar makes you want to break shit. Rocky is the backbone of the band. She provides rock-solid time, killer grooves, and tasty fills. Together they form the band that has caused so much hype in Indianapolis.

This campy cult classic (which unfortunately, we can't name here, but you can watch the trailer over there) is the most popular midnight movie of all time.  A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite.  The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.

You are not allowed to bring your own props.  Prop kits are available at the show.  Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your "scotts" tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner...toss it), will be available at the show for $4.  YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.

Doors open at 11:00pm.  Virgin sacrifice before the show.  The movie begins at Midnight.
