An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special : Dave Eggar “Amazing Grace” & “Soul Shine”

Dave Eggar recently visited the Blue Plate stage on his way to the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival. You’ll quickly see that our stage was not large enough for the whole entourage – and that Dave does not see that as a limitation! Dave Eggar is an artist who records in diverse genres and performs live in multiple musical categories, seamlessly moving between each, be it Pop, Rock, Jazz, R&B, New Age, World or Classical music. His ability to effortlessly blur the lines between any musical style is truly unique. This video is a perfect example, where Dave combines the timeless hymn “Amazing Grace” with the Allman Brothers’ classic “Soulshine”. We think you will agree that it is truly “amazing”.

WDVX is proud to announce that Megan Lange is our new events coordinator.

Megan Lange grew up in Lenoir City, TN and attended the University of Tennessee – Knoxville, graduating with a degree in Technical Writing and Business Editing. Prior to her position at WDVX, she worked as concert producer and promoter at the Square Room in Market Square, event producer for several local and regional events, and freelance marketing/web consultant.

When it comes to passions, Megan has a few – but her three primary passions are music, people, and downtown Knoxville (making this position the perfect combination). She is so excited to join the WDVX team and looks forward to working with the incredible staff, board, and volunteers to continue supporting the Knoxville community and the local arts movement, especially WDVX!

In her spare time, Megan leads her jazz band (Megan and her Goody Goodies), cooks fancy-schmancy food without recipes, swing dances with the Knoxville Swing Dance Association, and prowls estate sales looking for vintage clothes. If you see her out at a WDVX event, be sure to say hello!

 

Blackhorse Pub and Brewery

Blackhorse Pub and Brewery is sponsoring the WDVX-Travaganza! There will be several different styles of their brews available at the event! In 1992, the Blackhorse Pub and Brewery opened in Historic Downtown Clarksville. Their goal then, as now was to provide a neighborhood gathering place for friends and families.

 A second location was opened in Knoxville in Western Plaza, where Bearden meets Sequoyah Hills and near The University of Tennessee. Blackhorse strives to provide the food, service, and atmosphere that would make people want to come back. They offer gourmet pizza, steaks & pastas, salad & sandwiches, as well as Brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Their handcrafted ales are brewed to perfection on site. They are committed to providing the freshest, finest beer possible. Here are some of the brews that Blackhorse offers:

BLACKHORSE ALE

A fine American light ale. This is their lightest beer in terms of color and flavor.

BARNSTORMER RED ALE

Their flagship beer! This smooth traditional red ale uses Hallertau hops to accompany its sweet round finish.

McGEE’S PALE ALE

They use a blend of Munich Malt and two row barley as a base and create an assertive taste by adding cluster hops. Named in honor of their first brewer: Cheers Travis McGee!

COALMINER’S STOUT

Made in the tradition of the great stouts of England and Ireland, this stout is semi-dry and opaque in color

VANILLA CREAM ALE

This creamy vanilla ale is a wonderful combination of Vienna Malt, American two row and natural vanilla bean.
