Friday, Feb. 5

Hosted by stalwart Erie musician and local scene supporter Doug Phillips, the ongoing Erie Ale House Acoustics series has been featuring a good-and-hefty assortment of Gem City-area artists on the first and third Fridays of each month.

That musical train will keep a-rollin’ on with the series’ Feb. 5 installment, which marks the return of Simply Because – the duo of Amanda Nadine and 2015 Rock Erie Music Award-nominated Tony Kellogg – to local live performance.

It’s sure to be a harmonious feast for fans of Simply Because, as well as a songful treat for the many who are into Kellogg’s solo work.

Having previously crafted their own brew of country, folk, blues, and and pop between 2009 and 2012, “Amanda and I are very glad to be working together again,” says Kellogg (another stalwart Erie artist), “and [we’re] looking forward to performing” as part of Erie Ale House Acoustics.

It’s sure to be a harmonious feast for fans of Simply Because, as well as a songful treat for the many who are into Kellogg’s solo work as well as his work with a host of local bands such as Sonny’s Fugitives and Basket Eddy.

Showcasing some of Erie’s best musical talents, Ale House Acoustics – in this installment, and its others – is a series of events fans of live local music should mark on their calendars. – Ryan Smith
