Missy Raines & The New Hip blur the lines between jazz, bluegrass, and rhythm’n’blues- redefining the acoustic/electric/hybrid landscape. Is it ‘jam jazz’? ‘jazz grass’? ‘rhythm’n’blues-grass’? Doesn’t matter what you call it. The New Hip, led by multi award-winning bassist Missy Raines, delivers a powerful punch of groove-based (and BASS-ed groove) lines, soulful vocals, and full on funk rave-ups. Join us as we welcome Missy to the Melting Point for the first time! Doors open @ 6pm for dinner & drinks, music starts @ 8pm.

The term “Hobohemian” denotes a unique form of Americanized vagabond-style bohemianism which guides the group’s approach towards popular American and European roots music of the 1910’s, 20’s, and 30’s: a potent mix of proto-jazz, blues, and folk.
This six-piece group from Athens, GA follows in the tradition of forgotten gems along with original compositions to allow you to “Get your Hobo on”!

“…an ensemble perfectly balanced between brilliantly composed precision and equally brilliant spontaneity.” Jon Weisberger, The Nashville Scene

Drawing from a deep well of songwriters who specialize in the sophisticated to the intimate- Bonnie Raitt, Ed Snodderly and Pierce Pettis among them- Missy Raines & The New Hip add their own vibey-oh- so-laid-back tunes and outright rocking romps to the mix. This is an ensemble perfectly balanced between brilliantly composed precision and equally brilliant spontaneity.
Using bass, guitars, mandolin and drums, the territory The New Hip covers is broad and the compass is set by Raines, planted right in the center of the stage directing with her bass every bit as much as she’s playing it. more >>>
