Alex Bevan Website

Alex Bevan is a Emmy winning guitarist, singer, songwriter, poet, radio personality and music producer

living in North Madison, Ohio. He has been actively involved with the music business for over 40 years and

has a wealth of great songs and stories to share.


Rachel and the Beatnik Playboys Website

Rachel Brown is also a gifted NE Ohio singer/songwriter with a lovely voice.

With her great band, The Beatnik Playboys, she embraces and explores many Americana styles

and combines them into a soulful, powerful sound.

Rachel & The Beatnik Playboys are blazing new trails into the world of Americana.

This show will be a “round robin” affair with Alex and Rachel taking turns with their songs.

The Beatnik Playboys will jump in as needed.




At our last show with Woody Pines and Sweet Potato Spoon, the barn was completely

packed. We even eliminated most of our dance floor to get as many people in as we could.

We are constantly trying to tweak this venue, so we have again reconfigured the cabaret seating to

accommodate  even more people inside the barn. If we have another chilly night, the fire pit will be lit

and sidewalls will be put on the canopies.




Lorenzo’s “The Beautiful Flame” mobile wood-fired pizza truck 
will be on site for this show. Fresh hot pizza available starting at 6:00 pm.

BYOB...and bring some friends! See our website for more show details.

$10 donation at the gate. $5 students with ID. Kids under 12 free.

Music At Riverdog



Riverdog Retreat


it’s 3:31 - been out watching the moon

looking for northern lights

off to the East theres a murmur of wings

young geese in autumnal flights

starlight on wings must be silver and sheen

above woodsmoke that lifts to the air

and here on the ground lowly crickets are found

to be singing their simplest prayer

"all's well tonight, all's well tonight"

the mantra is quietly said

"all's well tonight, all's well tonight"

the world's fast asleep in it's bed

but somewhere beyond the peace in my pond

are the hungry, the hunted, the torn

where gun smoke and flame create horrors that shame

the purpose for which we were born

"if wishes were horses then beggars would ride"

not much to that old children's rhyme

"when Johnny comes marching" and drones fill the sky

and the carrion crows come to dine

my hope is for peace... and it's more than a thought

so i'm building a framework and tune

to share with world hare at 3:56

...yes... i've been out watching the moon

GIve a listen to songs posted on REVERBNATION

You may have noticed my new sound rig at a live gig.  I recently aquired a LUCID  ULD Mark II speaker from the "Wizards of Slavic Village" at ATS Sounds.  This is one of the most impressive pieces of sound technology I have ever worked with.  It eliminates the need for a floor monitor, covers a 180 degree radius with pristine sound, allows me to sing without compensating for "hot spots" in the sonic image and is extreemly efficient in terms of power usage.  Did I mention it's weatherproof?  I you are thinking of investing in a PA please check these guys out… here's the link…..   http://www.atssounds.com/index.html

I have no wings..I have no wheels…only these dreams I fasten to my heels…I have no wings…I have no road…only these songs to sing before i go…
