Teka brings 307
Teka Brock sings of drinkin’ hooch, the touring life, and ragin’ rivers on her new album, 307, which was released just last month. Based in Sheridan, Brock’s five-piece band has made waves across the state and in the region with a sound that blends classic and modern country with rock and Americana. While 307 revisits some of the same songs as her debut album, Brock has come into her own as a singer-songwriter, channeling the pure vocals of her influences—Alison Krauss, Sarah McLachlan, Dolly Parton—in genuine, and at times, sassy form. Teka Brock Band, 9:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday Jan. 10-11, as well as a 4 p.m. après-ski set on Saturday, at the Mangy Moose. $7 for the night shows. MangyMoose.com.
Mosey into Mosley at the Tav

A tireless touring artist, Mosley last rolled through as opener for Jerry Joseph and The Jackmormons around the time he recorded Charge with Joseph and Steve Drizos. Mosley has one solo release, Light & Blood . Bret Mosley, 9:30 p.m., Wednesday Jan. 9, at Town Square Tavern. 733-3886.
