New Republic Brewing Company is continuing their spring line of events with a variety of musicians with varying sounds of rhythm. They host artists from all over the country in the New Republic Brewing Taproom, and this week they will bring in two new flavors.

On February 26, New Republic Brewing Taproom will be bringing Taz & Friends, who will be joined by Jorge Cuza on djembe and Shyam Murali on the EWI (electronic wind instrument) to the stage. Taz & Friends will be jamming at the Taproom with an 8 page list of songs that people can come and request varying from rap, alt music to even some music from artists like Damian Marley. Taz & Friends are known for talented musical covers of hit songs while adding their own energy to keep the audience entertained. Paired with the traditional sound of music on Jorge’s djembe mixed with the electronic sound from Murali’s EWI, Taz & Friends are coming to College Station with a fresh new take on music. The band plays across the region and in a number of different venues with audiences of all sizes.

On February 27, New Republic Brewing Taproom will be bringing singer-songwriter Julia Hatfield to College Station, who is currently making her away across the region with her unique blend of traditional and contemporary country music, showing off her impressive guitar skills at the young age of eighteen. Hatfield regularly performs across different areas of Texas from Central to East Texas in a number of venues of all sizes. Hatfield’s previous performances include opening for a number of well-known artists as she has performed at the Bluebird Café in Nashville, the Cowboy Palace in Los Angeles, and the songwriters’ circle at Luckenbach Dance Hall. Deriving much of her inspiration from Texas artists and country singers like Guy Clark, Lee Ann Womack, Jason Eady, and Lyle Lovett, Hatfield creates a blend of her own music, combining elements of Texas Country and a variety of other country sounds.

The events will be hosted at the New Republic Brewing Company Taproom found at 11405 North Dowling Road in College Station and more info can be found at their site
