The Wee Heavies
The Wee Heavies (Aaron Schiltz, Peter Merideth, Jay Harkey, and Steve Neale) started singing together in the Shaw Neighborhood of St. Louis in 2013. The mostly a cappella band has won a following with their mix of Scottish, Irish and American folk music that combines tradition with innovation and weaves together a unique take on the songs they sing. Between songs, the lads are just as entertaining through their humorous rapport and engaging storytelling.
Just a reminder: RCS is a BYOB venue so you won't be able to buy alcohol on-site. Please feel free to bring your own bottle of spirits and snacks to enjoy throughout the evening.

Javier Mendoza "Hobo Cane"
Saturday, Feb 16, 2019
doors open at 6:30 pm / concert at 8:00 pm
$15 cover charge
Known as "Hobo Cane", Javier Mendoza was awarded a Telly Award in 2015 for Best Original Music in a documentary called "The Forsaken". He’s also shared the stage with the likes of Chuck Berry, Los Lobos, Willie Nelson, Great Big World and more. Most recently, Hobo Cane has found a warm songwriting community in Nashville with the Grammy-nominated Barry Dean as well as Grammy Award winners Luke Laird, Lori McKenna, and countless others. Ever the dynamic performer, Hobo Cane has also performed alongside Nashville hit makers Michael W. Smith, Jars of Clay, Chris Tomlin, and Ben Folds, in addition to securing countless television and movie song placements. In 2016 he released a self titled album produced by Grammy Winning Producer Toby Wright (Alice In Chains, Metallica, The Wallflowers, Third Eye Blind), featuring single “Let Go”.
Javier has completed his new full length record to be released in early 2019, “El Jardín” (The Garden). This is Mendoza’s best project to date, Mendoza says, “In my opinion it is the closest thing I’ve ever gotten to how I hear myself. I think the performance of each song captures the emotion of every lyric perfectly. I think the musicianship is at my best as well as the others performing in it.” This album’s sonic brilliance is due to three time Grammy winner, producer and engineer Matthew Odmark (Jars of Clay). “Matt really understood my songs and my approach to songwriting. He also squeezed the best out of me as a musician and as a singer.” Mendoza adds, “I felt rejuvenated as a writer and artist!” I am so proud of ‘El Jardin’ and I can’t wait for the world to hear it”.
