Rachel Brown and the Beatnik Playboys
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.

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…
