Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

WED, OCTOBER 8, 2014

Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9:00 pm

Music Farm Columbia

Columbia, SC

 

The Revivalists
The Revivalists
Since forming in 2007, The Revivalists have rightfully earned their reputation as the next breakout band from the music capital of New Orleans. The group's blend of soulful, syncopated rock and earnest songwriting comes to life through a meticulously crafted and ever-evolving live performance. In 2011 they were named Best Emerging Artist at Gambit Magazine's Big Easy Awards, and were nominated for Best Rock Act in 2012.

With the seed being planted during jam sessions at Tipitina's Sunday Music Workshops, where drummer Andrew Campanelli and guitarist Zack Feinberg first met, the band found its frontman by pure luck when Feinberg heard David Shaw singing on his Birch Street porch. Fueling the rhythm section, Campanelli's college friend, George Gekas, became the bassist. Feinberg later invited saxophonist Rob Ingraham, the two realizing their incontestable dynamic while taking music classes at Tulane University. After a fortuitous meeting at French Quarter Fest, Ed Williams joined on the pedal steel guitar. The newest addition to The Revivalists' cross-generational rocking goodness comes from multi-instrumentalist Michael Girardot. Having played sporadically with the band since 2009, he has grown into an integral part of their live show.

The Revivalists incessantly tour on the national level, often times supporting giants like Rebirth Brass Band and Galactic. They're also proud to have opened for notable acts JJ Grey & Mofro, Dr. John, and Trombone Shorty. Additionally, they have established themselves as an engaging festival act, gaining notoriety at CMJ (NYC), DeLuna Fest (Florida), Voodoo Music Fest (New Orleans), Hangout Music Festival (Gulf Shores, AL), The Kennedy Center Millennium Stage Series (Washington, DC) and the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. At the latter they grabbed the attention of Rolling Stone Senior Editor, David Fricke, who later called their performance, "a Crescent City-rhythm spin on jam-band jubilee."
Naughty Professor
For fans of: . Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, Galactic

Naughty Professor is a forward thinking music endeavor pioneered by six musicians all hailing from the Loyola New Orleans Music Studies Program. Formed in 2011, the band's mission was to embody the jazz-influenced party culture of New Orleans in a constantly evolving, high energy funk/soul outfit. Naughty Professors' live performances, which incorporate technical complexity with individual improvisations, quickly won the approval of all generations of New Orleans musicians, including George Porter Jr., Galactic, and The Revivalists. Their 2013 release of "Until The Next Time" and rapidly increasing fan base in the Crescent City have led to award nominations from Gambit Magazine and to attention from a wide variety of critics. With a heavy tour schedule prepared for 2014 and beyond, Naughty Professor is poised to quickly become the next household name associated with the echelon New Orleans music.
Tyler Boone Band
Tyler Boone Band
Challenge: Find a more genuine, harder working musician than Tyler Boone. Actually, just go ahead and give up because it is not going to happen. Growing up in the Lowcountry, Boone first became enamored with the subculture of Charleston's punk/metal scene, before eventually expanding his musical palette to include the blues/pop-laced influences that are sprinkled throughout his more recent releases.

Recently signing with Coast Records for his latest release "Familiar Faces" (May 20th, 2014) have been touring up and down the East and West Coast non-stop in support for this record. Featuring such artists as Mark Bryan from Hootie & the Blowfish as a vocalists and mandolinist.

Opening up for such acts as Platinum record selling artist Edwin McCain and Zach Myers from Shinedown. Grammy award winning artist such as Christopher Cross, Hootie and the Blowfish, Mark Bryan, American Idol Winner Lee DeWyze, American Idol Finalist Elise Testone, Band of Horses, Old Crow Medicine Show, Manchester Orchestra, The Revivalists, Minus the Bear, The Avett Brothers, I-Nine, Ben Rector, Sol Driven Train, Alpha Rev, Ghost Owl and even The Dirty Guv'nah's, Boone is well on his way to becoming a major act himself.

Tyler has been nominated as Singer of the Year, Singer/Songwriter of the Year & Song of the Year "Home" in the Charleston City Paper Music Awards 2013

His releases are now featured on 105.5 "The Bridge" in Charleston, SC and 92.1 "The Palm" "WUSC 90.3 FM" “Rock 93.5” FM “WXRY 99.3 “ FM in Columbia, SC and "Z 93.1 The Lake" in Lexington, SC , WLGI 90.9 FM in Hemingway, SC - Rock 95.5 in Augusta, GA, Rock 106.1 in Savannah, GA and Rock 93.3 "The Planet" in Greenville, SC - WSGE 91.7 FM in Charlotte, NC - KPRI 102.1 FM 91X "XTRA" FM and 94.9 FM in San Diego, California.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Clayton Anderson
Genre: Country
Similar to: Jake Owen, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean

Clayton Anderson has managed to do the unthinkable. He has cracked into the country music world backwards, independently, and with a fury. Opening for some of country's biggest stars, the likes of Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Kenney Chesney – twice, and Mr. Party himself Jimmy Buffett, Clayton has put himself on the country music map without the benefit of entering Nashville's star-making factory. He's done it the old fashioned way, playing backrooms, side stages, and honky tonks from Michigan to Florida, each time gaining a few more fans and a better foothold on areas that aren't traditional country strongholds. He just has a knack for getting his music to the people, and making first time fans lifetime fans almost as fast as you can say "Up, Down…Party". It surely won't be too long before country radio takes notice, but until then make sure you tell your friends you knew about him first.

In the spirit of our ongoing quest for knowledge and professional development, the American Academy of the History of Dentistry invites you, our colleagues, to submit papers and proposals for what is sure to be a vibrant series of presentations and conversations.
Our Academy was conceived in the late 1940’s and organized in 1951 by a small group of dentists concerned that the rapid growth and technological advancements occurring in American dentistry would adversely affect the basic tenets of the profession. It was their belief, and our Academy’s present position, that using the lens of historical perspective and analysis enables our profession’s evolution by building on our predecessors’ successes and failures.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

American Academy of the History of Dentistry "63rd Annual Meeting" - October 10, 2014 - October 11, 2014

In the spirit of our ongoing quest for knowledge and professional development, the American Academy of the History of Dentistry invites you, our colleagues, to submit papers and proposals for what is sure to be a vibrant series of presentations and conversations.
Our Academy was conceived in the late 1940’s and organized in 1951 by a small group of dentists concerned that the rapid growth and technological advancements occurring in American dentistry would adversely affect the basic tenets of the profession. It was their belief, and our Academy’s present position, that using the lens of historical perspective and analysis enables our profession’s evolution by building on our predecessors’ successes and failures.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Charlie Oxford
It's not often in post-millennium times that an 11-year-old guitar player has his life changed through hearing an iconic 1960s soul song. Charlie Oxford was woodshedding on Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan CDs when he first heard Sam Cooke's "That's Where It's At." And that 1960s buttery soulfulness has become a main ingredient in Oxford's home-cooked, modern soul-pop. His self-titled debut is sweet and simmering. It's comfort food for the modern listener, tracing a line from Sam Cooke to pop contemporaries like James Morrison and John Mayer.

In the fall of 2011, Oxford completed a Kickstarter campaign and raised an impressive $10,000 to fund his debut. The Nashville-based artist has grown his fan base organically through live performances and word-of-mouth exposure. A highlight for him was performing on the BMI Songwriter Stage at the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans, as well as performing twice at the annual BMI Key West Songwriters Festival. Oxford's album was produced by Adam Smith (Jason Reeves, Jordin Sparks, Kara DioGuardi, Danny Gokey, L.E.D., Krystal Meyers, The Veronicas, Lovedrug, Megan & Liz, and Britt Nicole) and recorded at Welcome to 1979 Studios and the Evil 8-bit Robot Factory in Nashville. The album features a stunning array of Nashville's finest musicians playing with sympathetic grace, imbuing each song with just the right dash of musical vitality.

Charlie Oxford is an album of love and self-discovery. "I write love songs and songs about finding yourself and getting up and doing something with your life," Oxford explains. Though he showed promise early on as a gifted guitarist, it would be years before his creativity blossomed into singing and songwriting. "I remember being in Nashville thinking 'Charlie what the hell are you doing with your life?!" he says with both earnestness and laughter. In a fevered burst of creativity, he penned 50 songs, many through collaborating with his ace producer Adam Smith. Oxford and Smith handpicked 10 of the finest tracks to comprise Charlie Oxford.

The album's opener, "Waiting For," cooks with poignancy and purposefulness. Oxford sings with honeyed urgency and plays searing blues guitar with authenticity and authority. The track grooves with pent-up but polished musicality, punctuated by a taut horn section and positively redemptive Hammond B3 organ playing. "This is song about seeking out what's holding you back—be it a day job you hate or your lack of confidence—and freeing yourself to pursue your dreams," Oxford says.

The goose-bump-inducing "Letting Go" begins with moony atmospherics and then swoops up to liberated love transcendence with a soaring chorus. "That's about being humble and fighting selfishness to embrace love," Oxford says. The quaint folk of "You & I" is about the flood of light that streams in when you knock down the walls obscuring true love. "It's a letter about how afraid I am to lose love," Oxford confides.

If Oxford's writing is confessional, it's because he discovered his singing and songwriting while in college when he was coming of age. "It was so therapeutic expressing myself in song, it was like conversations with my soul. That period helped define who I am," he says. Charlie Oxford grew up in Dallas listening to the local oldies station with his dad. As a searching artist, Oxford explored classic 1960s soul and blues rock, the elastic pop-funk of Prince, and the refined modern sensibilities of aforementioned singer-songwriters James Morrison and John Mayer. From age 12, he began his journey, making aesthetic connections to tie these diverse but refreshingly complimentary influences into the distinct sound he's developed on Charlie Oxford. His time spent in college in New Orleans—he was there when Katrina hit—was extremely influential on his musical self; both the city and the musicians there helped to shape Oxford.

"It wasn't until college when I said, 'Okay I can do this' that music really become a calling,'" Oxford says thoughtfully. "To hold the CD in my hands justifies the process of growth. It feels so good to have done this record. I'm so proud of it, and I can't wait to share it with everyone and show my gratitude for their support."

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion. However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Patrick Davis

2013 finds Patrick Davis in the midst of diligently writing, recording & producing music for both himself and others. Davis' near constant writing, playing & recording schedule has garnered hit songs, ever growing crowds & musical collaborations with industry heavyweights.
Patrick's song "Where I'm From", co-written with co-writer Joe Leathers, was released to country radio by rising country music star Jason Michael Carroll in 2009 and made it all the way to Country Radio's Top 10. Davis also has the closing track, "Be Wary of a Woman" on Darius Rucker's debut Capitol Records release "Learn to Live", which hit #1 on the Billboard Country Music Chart & has sold over 1.8 million copies, the song "Love I've Found in You" on the double platinum Lady Antebellum album "Own the night", 11 songs co-written with Jewel on her latest release "The Merry Goes Round", the beautiful "So Sweet" on Sony Recording Artist Casey James' debut release, multiple tracks on an upcoming project by Texan Pat Green and 2 co-writes on legendary singer songwriter Guy Clark's latest album "Somedays the Song Writes You".

Over the past few years Patrick has scaled back his touring itinerary to only headlining shows in select markets in the Southeast, but has in years past not only toured the Southeast, but much of the country as a support act for Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Pat Green, Jewel and other well known acts.

Patrick recently began producing music for others with his 1st released production project being a 2010 Christmas EP for Jason Michael Carroll titled "Christmas on the Farm", which including the title track & holiday single "Christmas on the Farm", a song Davis co-wrote with friend & collaborator Rhett Akins. Davis' next big production project was also with Jason Michael Carroll & was a full length album released through Crackerbarrel Records in July of 2011, with a debut single titled "Numbers" (co-written by Patrick) getting strong airplay throughout the country.

Patrick was originally signed to EMI Music Publishing in 2006 (Davis now writes for Warner Chappell Publishing) and since that signing has earned nearly 40 cuts by the aforementioned Carroll, Green, Jewel, Rucker, Guy Clark, Lady Antebellum, Josh Kelley, American Idol alumni Casey James, former Sony Nashville Artist Caitlin & Will, former BR549 front man Chuck Meade, Texas legend Cory Morrow, Texas artist Django Walker and others.

Patrick pens tunes with a wide range of artists and writers, including Lady Antebellum, Jewel, Kristian Bush, Steel Magnolia, Robert Randolph, James Otto, Matt Kearney, Casey James, Whitney Duncan, Josh Kelley, Guy Clark, Julianne Hough, Dallas Davidson, Jason Michael Carroll, JT Harding, Dave Berg, David Wilcox, Radney Foster, Darius Rucker, David Lee, Pat Green, Jewel, Cory Morrow, Brett James, Jeffrey Steele, Tim Nichols and many of the top songwriters in Nashville, NY, LA and Texas.

Patrick got his professional start in songwriting in 2005 with 2 co-writes on Texan Cory Morrow's "Nothing Left To Hide" album and then followed that up with 4 tracks on Pat Green's 2006 major label release "Cannonball", including the critically acclaimed single "Dixie Lullaby", which had a successful run on the Country Radio Charts in 2007.

Patrick's 1st album, Chances Are, was produced by Mark Bryan, guitarist for Hootie and the Blowfish, and was released independently in late 2003. Davis' 2nd proper release was called, NUMBERS, & was released digitally on Dec. 21st, 2010. Davis's latest project, released July 20th, 2012, is a 6 song EP titled "The Cuts – Volume One" and it highlights songs written by Patrick that had previously only been recorded by other artist, such as Lady Antebellum, Pat Green, Darius Rucker & others.

Before signing his publishing deal in 2006, Patrick played nearly 200 dates each year.

Playing music is the only job he has ever had.

Patrick learned to play the guitar in high school and was influenced from a young age by his father, Rusty Davis, a guitar player and local music shop owner.

Originally from Camden, SC, Patrick Davis has lived in Nashville, TN since 2002.

Patrick loves the South Carolina Gamecocks, Dallas Cowboys & Atlanta Braves.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Keller Williams

Keller Williams

Those who’ve followed Keller Williams’ recording career to date know that he has given each of his albums a single-syllable title: FREEK, BUZZ, SPUN, BREATHE, LOOP, LAUGH, HOME, DANCE, STAGE, GRASS, DREAM, TWELVE, REX, LIVE, ODD, THIEF, KIDS, BASS, PICK, KEYS and FUNK. Each title serves not only as a concise summation of the concept guiding the particular project but also as another piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is Keller Williams. GRASS, for example, is a bluegrass recording, cut with the husband-wife duo the Keels. STAGE is a live album and DREAM the end product of a wish list: Keller collaborating with some of his greatest musical heroes. THIEF is a set of unexpected cover songs. And KIDS offers up, you guessed it, Williams’ first and possibly only children’s record.

The naming trend has continued with 2012’s BASS and PICK, respectively a set of songs where Keller plays bass and William’s collaboration with royal bluegrass family The Travelin’ McCourys. In 2013 – Keller released FUNK with his newest collaboration – a six-piece funk outfit – More Than a Little. What all of the titles reveal, when taken together, is an artist of great stylistic breadth and infinite imagination, a singer, songwriter and musician, always on a quest for the new. Keller Williams has never followed the prescribed path laid out by the conventional music business, nor has he taken the prescribed meds laid out by his team of conventional doctors. Instead, he has taken the A.D.D. path (Artistic, Determined, Dedication). It’s a path that has served him quite well.

Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. For most of his career he has performed solo. His stage shows are rooted around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs, while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. With the use of today’s technology, Keller creates samples on the fly in front of the audience, a technique called live phrase sampling or looping, With nothing pre-recorded, the end result often leans toward a hybrid of alternative folk and groovy electronica. A genre Keller jokingly calls “acoustic dance music” or ADM.”

That approach, Williams explains, was derived from “hours of playing solo with just a guitar and a microphone, and then wanting to go down different avenues musically. I couldn’t afford humans and didn’t want to step into the cheesy world of automated sequencers where you hit a button and the whole band starts to play, then you’ve got to solo along or sing on top of it. I wanted something more organic yet with a dance groove that I could create myself.”

Williams’ solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer. Once he began releasing recordings, starting with 1994’s FREEK, Williams was embraced by an even wider community of music fans, particularly the jam band crowd. While his live gigs have largely been solo affairs, Williams has nearly always used his albums as a forum for collaborations with fellow musicians. An alliance with The String Cheese Incident on 1999’s BREATHE marked Williams’ first release on the band’s label SCI Fidelity Records, an imprint he still partners with today for recordings. DREAM, Keller’s 2007 release, found him in the company of such iconic musicians as the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, banjo master Béla Fleck, bass great Victor Wooten, American musician/poet Michael Franti and many others.

“That album took, from start to release time,” says Williams, “about three years. The object was to get people that I admire musically to play my stuff, so when I’m old I can crank this album in my pimped-out golf cart and have something that I’m really proud of. I was going for the historical effect for my own personal listening pleasure.

“Each record,” he continues, “is a little snapshot of history. I like to think of it as a period piece for an artist. Each record is a little bit different but all of them have some kind of common thread, which is my musical ability as far as I can take it. I enjoy making records. In some people’s eyes, they’re a dying breed, but I’m very passionate about it. They document where my head is at that time in my career and where I am in my songwriting.”

Williams’ story begins in Fredericksburg, Virginia, just south of Washington, D.C. There he was exposed to a wide variety of music at an early age, starting with country and bluegrass and working his way up through hip-hop and go-go, a brand of funk particular to that part of the country. Once he began playing guitar, Williams’ sphere expanded to what he calls “the post-pseudo-skateboarder punk-rock rebellious type of thing, Black Flag and Sex Pistols and Ramones, Dead Kennedys, things like that. That slid into the more melodic college rock, like the Cure and the Cult, the Smiths, R.E.M.’s first five or six records.”

Then came the Grateful Dead, a seminal influence on Williams’ own music. “I studied and learned their music and went to the shows,” he says, adding that the impact of Jerry Garcia on his attitude toward music remains incalculable. Another major influence was Michael Hedges, the late virtuoso acoustic guitarist. “He was really excelling in a whole different world from what I knew,” says Williams.

After relocating to Colorado, further exposure to bluegrass music and progressive acoustic artists such as Béla Fleck and the Flecktones also had a major impression on Williams. As he began to develop his own distinctive compositional and performing style, Williams incorporated all of the lessons he’d learned from the long list of artists who’d found their way into his world, then filtered their music through his own experiences until something wholly unique emerged. The list of artists whose music he has covered either in concert or on his recordings constitutes a mind-blowing spread: songs originally performed by everyone from Pink Floyd and Ozzy Osbourne to Ani DiFranco and old-school rappers the Sugar Hill Gang!

When he first started out, Williams played in regional bands but also performed as a solo artist, “me sitting on a stool playing covers, like a happy hour situation,” he says. “I’d get dinner and maybe tips. There were bands in high school and in college. But it turned out I could get the same money playing solo that I was getting with the band. Around that time I was also doing temporary jobs and I was making the same amount playing music as I was scraping mortar out of the cracks of cinder block walls for eight hours in the summertime at minimum wage. So it seemed like the obvious choice was to play music. I started to work and over the years I incorporated more technology. The looping thing started to happen and tickets were sold and people came to shows, so there wasn’t any reason to fix something that wasn’t broken.”

What Williams calls “the looping thing” is actually a big part of what has made him such a compelling live performer. “Basically, I have these machines that are essentially delay units,” he explains. “What I do is step on a button and sing or play something. Then I step on the same button in time and it repeats what I just played or sang. Once that initial loop is created, I can layer on a bass line or a drum line and then have this layer that I just created in front of an audience that I could sing over and solo over. Nothing is pre-recorded. Everything is created onstage in front of the audience.”

If it sounds complicated, it is: but the basic thrust is that the technology has allowed Williams to go out on tour week after week, year after year, and play music by himself—without limiting his sound to what we most often associate with the solo singer-songwriter: a guy strumming a guitar and singing. With his arsenal of tech toys, Williams can expand his reach onstage by, in essence, jamming with himself.

But he has, on several occasions, also performed with live humans. The summer of 2010 found Keller sharing a bus with two of his biggest heroes, former Grateful Dead drummers Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, as a member of their powerhouse assemblage the Rhythm Devils. “That was a very surreal experience,” Williams says. “We rehearsed for a few days and then we were on a bus with 12 people, two of them being the original drummers from the Grateful Dead.” On that tour, Williams was put in the enviable position of singing many songs from the Grateful Dead catalog for audiences that loved every minute of it.

Williams has also toured as part of a string trio with singer/guitarist Larry Keel and his wife, singer/bassist Jenny Keel, hitting key stops on the bluegrass festival circuit. And he has a band of his own, with Keller on rhythm guitar and vocals, Jeff Sipe on drums, Keith Moseley on bass and Gibb Droll on lead guitar. They toured throughout the spring of 2007 to the fall of 2008, and subsequently released a double live record with a companion DVD. In true Keller Williams fashion, it’s called Live.

If it seems as if this is a man who never stops, that would be about right. Keller released the amusingly titled THIEF—his all-covers project with the Keels—early in 2010, and KIDS, his sixteenth album, in the fall of that same year. A father of two himself, Williams was, of course, inspired by his own offspring but, he says, some of the songs were written before his children were born. “When Not For Kids Only by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman came out, I knew that there was hope for me with kids music,” he says. “I was really attached to that record.” The songwriting for Kids, Keller says, “was not necessarily singing to the kids. A lot of it was me singing from the perspective of the kids. That was my plan, to get on their wavelength, on their level, and be one of them, so it’s kind of like one of their friends singing to them.”

In 2011, BASS found the multi-instrumentalist only playing bass guitar. BASS was also the first album to be recorded with Keller’s live reggae-funk band Kdubalicious, which in addition to Keller on bass and vocals, features Jay Starling on keyboards and Mark D on drums. On the other end of the spectrum – but just as tasty – is Keller’s 2012 release PICK. This collaboration featuring Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts—although the parts are rather massive on their own, to be sure. “Performing with The Travelin’ McCourys is one of my favorite things to do in the world,” Keller explains. “This project has struck a special chord with me [pun intended]. It is very addictive.”

Indeed, Keller always enjoys working with a band. For 2013 he steps out with his newest muse…a 6-piece funk band dubbed More Than a Little. Williams draws from the Richmond, VA R&B/gospel scene including a pair of show stealing female singers. FUNK – a sexy live recording that pays deep homage to the genre’s roots, Keller style – hits streets November 2013.

As if all of this doesn’t keep him busy enough, Keller’s thirst for music of all kinds has also led him to the world of radio. For the past several years he has hosted Keller’s Cellar, a weekly syndicated program available on both terrestrial stations and online at www.kellerwilliams.net. Williams describes the show as “a self-indulgent, hour-long narrated mix tape of stuff I’m into. It’s rule-less except for what the FCC says we can’t do. I don’t play contemporary country music. I don’t play contemporary Christian music—however, there is possibly some old gospel. I don’t play opera. Everything else is fair game. World music from all around—African music from all the countries, jazz, funk, reggae, techno, chill, lounge, lounge singers, rub-a-dub, dancehall. I pretty much stay away from smooth jazz. It’s definitely a fun outlet for me. I’m trying to do something different.”

Something different. That, we can assume, is how it will always be with Keller Williams.

Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion. However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.
