Entertainment

Judah & The Lion
Judah & The Lion

Reminder: Admission to this event is free to the public.

They appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” tour the country, and they are coming to The District for Art of Wine! (Click here to check out their performance on Letterman.)

Judah & The Lion are three very different people from very different places, united by a shared love of music. As a band, Judah & The Lion owes much to fate and to the small town feel of Nashville, Tennessee the city that brought the trio together from scattered parts of the country. The three met while attending Belmont University. They were introduced to each other through music and mutual friends.

“We all had similar stories, despite the fact that we’d grown up in different places,” explains mandolin player Brian Macdonald, “Judah is the Southerner, I’m the Chicago city slicker, and Nate is the laidback, bearded Rocky Mountain guy.”

One listen and you can hear the influence of each of their youths:
· Judah Akers in his Tennessee hometown, listening to the soulful crackle of Ray Charles records
· Nate Zuercher, a Colorado kid into rugged rock’n’roll
· Brian Macdonald driving through the suburbs of Chicago, blasting everything from Frank Sinatra to Billy Joel.

All these sounds have come together in Judah & The Lion – the old school sincerity of Southern gospel and soul, the energy of rock and the time-tested pop of classics and hits from the past. And through it all, there is the sound too – of their shared obsession, the feverishly nostalgic twang of bluegrass, country and traditional folk music.

Click here to listen to select songs from Judah & The Lion’s latest EP “Kids These Days,” view more of the band’s videos, and read more about the band’s Billboard “Top 20” achievements.

OferleAlso playing in the Sophia Square Courtyard:

Oferle
Oferle is a homegrown, Hoosier family trio. Their Midwestern hospitality shines through in their music alongside modern pop influences. Oferle members are: lead vocalist Annette, guitarist/vocalist Luke, and pianist/guitarist/vocalist Jonah.

Expect refreshingly genuine music with this family trio.  They have been called a "local sensation" and "rising star" in the northern Indiana region (95.1 Best FM) and you may recognize them from their featured performance at the annual 2014 Circle of Lights event in Indianapolis. Their sound and energy is ideal for Art of Wine!
