Roots Cafe - Feb 2023

THE ROOTS CAFÉ SINGER-SONGWRITER SERIES PRESENTS:
TONY DENIKOS, GEOFFREY HIMES 
& WILLEM ELSEVIER
Performing their latest and favorite compositions

Tony Denikos, Geoffrey Himes and Willem Elsevier were scheduled to play the Roots Café Christmas Show on December 4, but Himes’s positive Covid test forced the show’s cancellation. Now the make-up show has been slated for February 5. This time the focus will not be holiday numbers but rather the trio’s newest compositions, including the Denikos-Himes co-write, “Better the Devil You Know,” and the Himes-Elsevier-Kemp co-write, “Snowball Stand.” Come and hear some of Maryland’s best songwriting.

Tony Denikos embodies Americana with its deepest roots and its latest reinvention. Tony's music is as witty as it is cutting, as purposeful as it is reflective. In 2020, he released "Gravity Wins," a stripped-down, raw and romantic take on life in all its guises. Tony collaborates with Scott and Jen Smith, Geoffrey Himes and David E. Moulton on three tunes and pens the rest of this ten-track collection on his own. From South Carolina to Texas, from Nashville to upstate New York, you can find Tony performing in any number of configurations. Be it an intimate acoustic solo show to a full-on, five- piece band, Tony's shows are always a treat. For this show, his first return to the Roots Café since the pandemic, he will be performing the newest songs he's written since his last appearance. https://www.tonydenikos.com

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, American Songwriter, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and many more, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Si Kahn, Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Tony Denikos, Alan MacEwan, Ed Pettersen, James von Lenz, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. His songs have been recorded by Kemp, the Kinsey Report, Denikos, Koller, Mojo Filter, Patton and others. For this show, he will be debuting his latest song, “Please Don’t Kiss Me.” http://www.facebook.com/RootsCafeBaltimore

Willem Elsevier is a trained violinist who has found success in both the classical and jazz worlds. He is best known, however, for his role in Love Riot, the Baltimore rock band that recorded with producer Eric Ambel and toured widely.  Elsevier’s sophisticated solos helped the band beat out 2,500 other bands from around the globe to win the Yamaha Music Quest competition in Japan in 1994. Elsevier has also recorded with such acts as Billy Kemp and Milkshake. Since 2012, he has been performing and songwriter in a duo with Geoffrey Himes.
