Inspired by his older brother, Brad began playing drums & guitar at just 11 years old and just a year later began touring with a southern gospel style group named "Heirs Of Grace". With over 20 years experience playing bass, drums, guitar & vocals, Brad loves to share his knowledge with the youth of his community through his own lessons studio which is growing every year. Brad just released his second full length album titled "Behind Closed Doors".
5:45pm Elliot & The Audio Kings
Blues traditionalists at heart, Elliott and the Audio Kings tackle everything from jump blues and big shuffles to 50s style rock and roll. Their music is raucous enough to feel at home in any roadhouse or 5-star dive bar, and at times, sophisticated enough to be heard at an uptown private club. Their traditional take on the blues focuses on bringing things down to the essential blues ingredients, - wood, wire, blood and bones, and a 60 cycle hum. Electro-fied!
10:30pm Smoke Wagon Blues Band
Featuring funky blues harmonica, whiskey stained vocals, slick guitar work and a solid rhythm section, Corey Lueck & The Smoke Wagon Blues Band has been performing in clubs and on festival stages for over a decade.
7:20pm Waterstreet Blues Band
The Waterstreet Blues Band delivers original modern blues with a rockin' party groove. They add in a little swing and a side order of cajun spice to serve up their unique blend of blues music. Rob Deyman rocks electric blues guitar and adds a mellow jazzy groove or rootsy growl on his National steel tricone.
Led by veteran area musician, Rev Doug Eyre, this high energy, eight-piece R&B Pop band features a four-piece horn section, four lead vocalists and stellar harmonies.
Born to entertain, Ginger St. James’ song-writing and voice are as powerful as they are poignant. Powerful in a way where it’s hard to believe such a voice comes from a five-foot frame. Poignant in a way that the music and the message rings true through the test of time. Her repertoire blends country, rockabilly and blues with a sultry voice and commanding stage presence.
Ginger St James brings a combination of high energy and incredible sweetness to the stage that is beyond comparison. You won't be able to resist falling in love.
