Upcoming Live Performances on MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC with host JASON BENTLEY

Thursday, July 31, Nashville’s Nikki Lane has a bold new country sound that has her poised for stardom, and we’re thrilled to have her perform as part of Country In The City. She joins Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am.

Friday, August 1, Detroit-native Griz has a sax-infused sound that blends hip hop, funk and electro and has earned him spots opening for everyone from Bassnectar to Pretty Lights. We’ll host a live set from the emerging artist on Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am.

Thursday, August 7, Spoon is one of the most consistently great rock bands of the modern era. They join us just days after the release of their new album, so we can experience the new songs live on Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am.

Thursday, August 14, Andy Carthy aka Mr. Scruff is a DJ and a producer who is always evolving. His latest release is a bit more stripped down than his previous work, but with a good amount of gritty funk and stony soul. He’ll join Morning Becomes Eclectic for a live set at 11:15am.
