Event Description

Jonah Smith returns! with Andy Stack.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. to allow time to indulge in our Small Plates Menu. Music will begin after the dining 'hour', so roughly 7:00. FM is known for being an intimate "listening' room. At Door pricing [IF AVAILABLE] increases by $5.00 per ticket.

The new acoustic recording by Jonah Smith, “Stay Close” began in November 2016 shortly after a reunion with Andy Stack that took place in Des Moines, Iowa at The Flying Mango. The concerts, which took place over two nights in late October, were centered around the performance of a new song called “Ocala” — a song written for Mike Wedeking, a friend and the owner of The Flying Mango.

The shows were emotional and reminded Smith and Stack of their special musical bond – a relationship that stretches back over a decade and involves hundreds of concerts and several records. The two, now living on opposite coasts, had been pursuing their own artistic endeavors: Smith became a contestant (and eventually a semi-finalist) on America’s Got Talent and then made a record that was released this past May while Stack opened Buffalo Stack recording studio in Beacon, NY in an old schoolroom to focus on producing music.

Grace Unwrapped was published in the Washington Post on Christmas Eve, and tell more of the story about the song Ocala.

Smith’s musical prowess has earned him a few high-profile fans, including America’s Got Talent judge Howard Stern. When Smith competed on the show in 2014, Stern labeled his performance “the best thing I’ve heard in years.”
