Emma's Lounge

The Room Upstairs

On its surface, Emma's Lounge is a band from Asheville, NC. But it’s more than that.

An Emma's Lounge show is a place where you can show up as you are, sink into and embrace what you’re facing through dancing out all of the heebie jeebies to releasing some tears of angst or joy, to singing at the top of your lungs, to reaching over and holding your neighbor’s hand just to feel the connection. Emma's Lounge is a community where the love flows for music and each other.

Emma's Lounge has the unique ability to morph from rootsy folk to rollicking rock and powerful soul, to head-turning electronic-tinged psychedelic funkiness. Their strange range of creative influence is united by the band's raw energy and audience inclusiveness.

And word is spreading from the band's Asheville, NC hometown across the Southeast and East Coast. Emma's Lounge have performed at SweetWater 420 Fest, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, The BIG What?, Front Porch Fest, French Broad River Festival, Mustang Spring Jam, Soulshine, Meeting of the Minds, Floyd Yoga Jam, and many more.

Jon Scales Fourchestra @ The Downtown Coutndown!

The Room Upstairs

Part of the epic New Year's Celebration in Downtown Princeton, The Room Upstairs will host Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. Scales is one of the most innovative steel pannists on the planet, and is redefining and challenging traditional expectations of his signature instrument. In his hands, the sonic palette of an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical resorts is radically expanded to mimic the role of horns, piano, vibraphone or marimba due to his stunning, virtuosic technique. Scales’ mesmerizing compositions have captivated listeners and elevated him to the status of a true composer, forging new territory in the medium of instrumental music. Although Scales’ writing produces songs that are ultimately accessible and danceable, the compositions can be remarkably complex and difficult to perform. As a result, the power trio whimsically named Jonathan Scales Fourchestra has always had a fluid lineup top-notch musicians, and even included an “all-star” version with bassist MonoNeon (Prince, Ghost Note), drummer Robert “Sput” Searight (Snarky Puppy, Snoop Dogg) and percussionist Weedie Braimah (Trombone Shorty, Nth Power), as well as a number of other talented marquee value players. Throughout these changes, Scales has demonstrated remarkable perseverance and persistence, a topic that he presented in a TED Talk, while continuing to write and develop his craft and touring the North American and European club and festival circuit—as well as dates in Japan, Central America and The Caribbean. Scales also represented the United States through the Department of State as a musical ambassador in a four week concert tour of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Indonesia in early 2017, an honor for which he was chosen from among three hundred finalists. jonscales.com

Delnora Reed & Friends Live in The Room Upstairs

 —  —

The RiffRaff Arts Collective, 865-869 Mercer Street

Enjoy the beautiful sounds of Princeton native & Nashville based songwriter Delnora Reed live in The Room Upstairs, a beautiful turn-of-the-century-ballroom turned small theater located in the Mercer Street Grassroots District of downtown Princeton. Delnora is an Entertainer based out of Nashville, Tennessee. She has been performing her signature blend of roots, country and folk music across the country since she was a teenager, continuing a long and distinguished family tradition in music. Delnora released her first album, “Delnora”, while still in high school, garnering airplay on Country Radio in the United States and in the United Kingdom. After graduating from Princeton Senior High School, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Concord University in just two and a half years while also being named one of the 10 “Best College Entertainers in America.” Soon thereafter, she moved to Nashville where she was signed to an Artist Development deal for a Major Record Label. Two subsequent major record label deals and a few independent projects have served to continue honing her craft. "Music’s in the bloodlines for Delnora Reed; her great-grandfather Henry Reed’s fiddle tunes are a centerpiece of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Her own efforts, while steeped in old-time country and bluegrass, are considerably more contemporary. Such songs as “Sleepwalking” split the difference between Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin, with hushed sincerity and gutsy delivery." ~ K. Oliver Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.
