In Advance of Next Week's Show at the Beachland, Danielle Nicole Talks About Finding Her Sound on Her Latest Album

Posted By on Thu, Feb 20, 2020 at 1:18 PM

  • Lonny Quattlebaum
Singer-bassist Danielle Nicole had a good run with Trampled Under Foot, the blues-rock band she formed with her two brothers, singer-guitarist Nick Schnebelen and singer-drummer Kris Schnebelen, back in 2000.

But when Kris Schnebelen left the band in 2013, the group just wasn’t the same.

“Kris quit the band, and Nick and I did a farewell tour in 2014 to celebrate some of the best clubs we played,” says Nicole in a recent phone interview from her Kansas City home. “It didn’t feel natural. It didn’t feel right. To me, it wasn’t Trampled Under Foot. Being in the situation where you start a ban from the ground up with the same people and you’re in it for over a decade, I didn’t want to go through the heartbreak of building something from the group up again with another group. I wanted to make all the decisions, right or wrong, and trust my gut.”

Nicole hired Brandon Miller to become her guitarist and launched her solo career in 2015.

Touring in support of 2018’s Cry No More, she brings the band to the Beachland Ballroom for a performance that takes place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29.

Bill Toms & Hard Rain/Gene Schwartz Trio

A mix of blues, soul and Americana, Good for My Soul, a recent effort from Bill Toms & Hard Rain features a collection of tunes that sound so familiar they could pass for standards. With its woozy horns and raspy vocals, "I'd Be a Rich Man Today" kicks the album off with a bang. Toms launched his career some 30 years ago as the lead guitarist in Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers, a regional sensation that has always had a strong following in Cleveland. (Jeff Niesel), 7:30 p.m., $12 ADV, $15 DOS. Music Box Supper Club.

New 'Roots Rearview' Podcast Recounts Hotz Cafe's 100-Year History

Posted By on Wed, Feb 19, 2020 at 5:13 PM

  • Facebook.com
In 2018, the Roots of American Music launched Roots Rearview, a podcast devoted to "celebrating, remembering, and revealing the history and the music of Ohio, the Rust Belt and beyond."

Just this week, local musician and recording engineer Clint Holley, who hosts the series, has released a new episode that centers on Hotz Cafe, a small neighborhood tavern in Tremont.

Hotz Cafe first opened in 1919, and the bar recently celebrated 100 years of family ownership. Holley interviewed members of the Hotz family to talk about how the place transformed from "somewhat of a store," as John Hotz describes its early days. Hotz also recalls the story of how baseball great Babe Ruth once bought everyone at the bar a drink.

The local act the Luckey Ones also performs on the program.

You can listen to the podcast here.
