Oliver Penn @ Shoeshine Charley's Big Top Lounge
Oliver Penn – “Soulful and sweet / gritty and biting – his music spans a broad spectrum. Oliver Penn is a guitarist and singer who brings a refreshing fervor to the stage.
 
Born and raised in Providence, RI, Oliver was autonomous from the start. Teaching himself to play drums and guitar, he began listening and playing along to anything he could find. Before starting high school, he moved with his family to Houston where he was introduced to the Texas music scene, and subsequently fell in love with the blues.
 
After going back to Providence for college, Oliver began casually playing in bands around town. He then formed his own group, introducing his new sound to the Northeast. Oliver is now back in Houston, taking the scene by storm.
 
Oliver has a distinct sound that expresses elements of both blues-rock and soul that is sure to keep evolving. He has shared the stage with Charley Crockett, The California Honeydrops, Shinyribs, Esme Patterson, and others. New music, merch, and performances are on the horizon.”

Oliver Penn throws country, funk, hip-hop and rockabilly influences into his own special brand of the blues.”

Jimmy Pizzitola @ Shoeshine Charley's Big Top Lounge | Houston | Texas | United States

Jimmy Pizzitola –  a Houston based singer/songwriter, night-time landscaper, and lover of all things jellicle (except Cats).  His early musical influences, driven into his three year old skull while being held captive in the back of a 1968 blue Malibu by his carpool-driving mother, were the singer-songwriters of the 1970’s.  Between dropping off and picking up siblings and assorted neighborhood ruffians, Jimmy was force-fed Jim Croce, Neil Young, James Taylor, Gerry Rafferty, and of course, Der Weinershnitzel corn dogs.  Come weekend, he would often head out to South Texas with his father and grandfather to shoot at things.  Sitting on the console of a Ford Bronco, squeezed in between stacks of 8-tracks and bottles of V.O., he would sing along with Waylon, Willie, Hank Williams (Jr. and Sr.) Don Williams, and other country-fried offerings of the time.
