Live Music this way

Live Music Schedule

For Booking, contact Shannon:

Southlake – Dan Quinn

Guitarist. Singer. Live Looping Master. One Man Band. MC. Party Starter. Limit Pusher. Pretty fun guy to hang out with. Totally responsible suburban dad.
 
Southlake’s own Dan Quinn will be giving a rare public performance right here at Taverna Rossa – Southlake! Dan has received rave reviews for his performances at weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, and private events around the Dallas area. His unique blending of popular acoustic hits with DJ style effects and advanced looping technology has earned him recognition as a performer at the upcoming 2017 NAMM Show in California.
 
Join us for a FREE show as he leads us in a fun night of music, drinks, and friends.

Plano – Jennifer Ramsey

Currently based in the Dallas area, Jennifer Ramsey fostered a love of music early. She learned to play piano, acoustic guitar, ukulele, and saxophone, while cultivating a warm and expressive singing voice.
 
Prior to arriving in Dallas, Jenn played (and replayed) many concert and club venues in the Chicago area as a solo performer, as well as with bands such as Face N Time, Jennerator, Allison Wonderband, and Bad Girlfriend. She has cultivated a strong fan base, who return to hear her reinvention of new and classic pop, independent rock, country, and standard songs for acoustic guitar and ukulele. As a solo artist, she performs bravely and devoutly, taking chances, and inspiring her audiences to feel the beauty of music made without trickery or gadgets.

Southlake – Velvet Love Box

Velvet Love Box features three veteran musicians from the North Texas area: percussionist/vocalist Brandon Bumpas, guitarist/vocalist Scot Cloud, and vocalist/bassist Neil Schnell. The band formed at Bronco’s Sports Bar in 1997, where they still perform every Thursday night, and over the past fifteen years they have continued to blur the line between “cover” and “original”, creating a niche for themselves. In early 2002 VLB recorded their first EP, “Pilot,” for Texas indie label Aaron Ave. Records. In 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008 Velvet Love Box was voted Best Cover Band by the readers of Fort Worth Weekly! 

Help us kick-off Velvet Love Box’s return to Taverna Rossa – Southlake. The craft beer will be flowin’ and the artisan pizza will be hot!

Plano – The Bad #7s

The Bad #7s play songs you know from hard rock to pop, country to classic rock, blues to current rock, 80’s to today with flavors of latin and jazz. Join us in welcoming to Plano for their return!

The Sandlot themed Flight Night at Southlake

The Sandlot gang will fill the restaurant as we dress-up as our favorite characters and play the original movies over the bar! Join us for a flight of four Sandlot themed brews, or bring the whole family for pizza and a movie.

Plano – Zach Coffey

Zach Coffey is a young country artist living in Dallas, TX. He is bringing something completely different to the Texas Country scene. His love for popular country and knowledge of the “classical” era blends with his Red Dirt roots for a sound that is uniquely “Zach Coffey”. In his young career, he has shared the stage with Mark McKinney, Deryl Dodd, Brandon Jenkins, Curtis Grimes, and many others. He has also been featured on RFD-TV’s, The Penny Gilley Show, and is a regular performer on KSBI-TV’s Rodeo Opry. Come see why Zach is the next name you’re going to hear about in Texas music.

Southlake – Ashmore

ASHMORE is a breath of fresh air in a music industry that has slowly become stale and one-sided….a throwback to the British and Southern rock roots that once made rock ‘n roll great. Described by Debbie Sexton of Dallas’ KEGL 97.1 The Eagle as “a cross between The Rolling Stones and The Black Crowes”, Ashmore is at the forefront of an ever growing trend in popular music….
THE RETURN OF TRUE ROCK ‘N ROLL!!!
 
Let Ashmore be the peak of your weekend with craft pizza and beer. We’ll be welcoming Ashmore for their debut at Taverna Rossa – Southlake!

Plano – Wanda King Acoustic

One of the Best Female Blues Songstress Performing! Wanda King has the wow factor with her Hot Blues and Cool Jazz style. Wanda is the  daughter of  Blues legend Freddie King. She is the President of the Freddie King Blues Foundation. She’s also accepted the award for her late father Freddie King who was inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME 2012.

Southlake – Mark Sena & Friends

You can expect Classic Rock…you can expect funk…you can even expect some Top 40’s! Mark Sena & Friends is going to pack a show full of your favorites. Come for craft pizza and beer, stay for band!

Southlake – Chaz Marie Band

Chaz Marie sings from the depths of her soul. You will feel the raw emotion as she bears her naked emotional moments. Her sultry, smoky, raspy vocals and charming personality have earned her the reputation as a fresh alternative to the formulaic country artists. Her voice is a fusion of her musical influences in country, delta blues, R&B and rock and roll. Join us for fresh, fired pizza and cold beer as we welcome Chaz back to Taverna Rossa.

Plano – Mountain Natives

Following Philip Pappas’ victory over cancer, he and his wife Loren started the band Mountain Natives to sing about the “Essentials” of overcoming mountains and living a life with hope, laughter, fulfilled dreams, and dreaming together.
 
The music that was produced by Philip and Loren was not from a place of wallowing in the doubt of life or death. These “Essential” songs were born from a place of hope and gratitude. That hope is impressed on not just the ears but the heart of the listener. Hope for the miraculous. Philip and Loren want you to believe in the hope that the impossible is possible. Mountains of adversity can be thrown into the sea.

Southlake – Chant Duplantier

With a combination of soul, funk, rock, and blues, Chant has established themselves as the ambassadors of Eclectic Soul – a soulful new genre that sets no rules and has no boundaries. This trio mixes intelligently crafted songs with exceptional musicianship to create a style that defies categories and defines originality.

With their roots in the past and a sound for the future, Chant truly is “the history of things to come.” Come check them out ONLY at Taverna Rossa!

Plano – Justin Kemp

Sets full of Classic Rock and originals! 70s, 80s, 90s through today! Beatles, Boston, Fleetwood Mac, Sublime, Journey, Pink Floyd, Toadies, Jane’s Addiction, CCR, Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Buffett, Bob Segar, Fuel, Bryan Adams, Pear Jam, Tom Petty and much more….

Come out, have some fun, listen to some good passions 🙂 and make new friends!

Southlake – Mojo Filter Beatles Cover Band

MOJO FILTER is a Beatles Cover band presents a full tribute show, which includes the familiar outfits that the Beatles wore during their live performance years, as well as replicating the music note for note, using period correct instruments, including Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars, Hofner basses, Ludwig Drums and Vox amplifiers. This truly is a band you don’t want to miss!

Join us at Taverna Rossa for MOJO FILTER’s return. We’ve got the best thin-crust pizza in North Texas, cold beer on tap, and fresh artists.

Plano – Maylee Thomas Band

From her early days as a Gospel singer to her legendary status as a Texas Diva, Maylee Thomas transcends genres, mixing Gospel-based blues with soul driven rock, touches of pop, with the very faintest caresses of country from time to time… and audiences respond. Maylee is the soul of Texas and a must see act.

If you’re looking for a relaxing weekend kick-off place, join us for Maylee’s return. We will be serving up hot, rustic thin-crust pizza and cold drafts to go with Maylee’s fantastic sound. 

Southlake – Broken Code Band

Broken Code is a high energy Texas Rock ‘n’ Roll band homegrown out of McKinney! They specializes in diversity. The band’s sets run the gamut from Classic Rock & Roadhouse Blues to good ol’ party on the patio hippie music.

Come on down to Taverna Rossa and check’em out!

Plano – TBA Music

TBA Music is a Dallas-based variety band with a perfect blend of folk/pop, soul, and original music.
