    The link between the Band and the Cate Brothers dates back to 1966, when Levon Helm was their drummer for a few gigs in Arkansas after he had left the Hawks' tour with Bob Dylan. In 1981, five years after The Last Waltz, Levon and the Cates did a series of concerts in Canada and the US.

    Band guitarist Jim Weider also played with the Band during this period. The Cates teamed up with the Band again on the beginning of their 1985 tour, but had to leave after a while due to economical problems. Jim Weider instead continued as the guitarist of the Band. The Cate Brothers Band have in the later years done occasional performances with Levon, Garth Hudson, and the Band.

    Javier Mendoza "Hobo Cane"

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

    EventHoboCaneSelected as one of Nashville's Lightning 100's Independent Radio Station Spotlight Artists in 2016.

    Pure heart and soul. That’s how you can best describe Hobo Cane.

    Born as Javier Alberto Mendoza in the state of Virginia to a Spanish mother and Mexican/American father, Javier’s love for music burned bright from a young age. He started his musical career joining Warner-Chappell as a staff writer in Miami, FL. There he spent his time writing tunes for mega pop sensations such as Enrique Iglesias, Juan David, Ricky Martin, Rosario and more. The ever-winding path of life took him to Saint Louis: City of Miles Davis, Tina Turner and Chuck Berry, where he saw musical success with his new following. In 2014 Mendoza moved to Music City, Nashville, TN where he is embarking on a project as Hobo Cane.

    Why Hobo Cane? "According to the critics, I've always been too Rock for Pop, too Pop for Alternative, too Anglo for Latin and even sometimes too Latin for Anglo. I think that's a good thing. A hobo is a transient and migrant worker. I've moved from place to place all my life, and I was raised among different cultures and languages. I think my songs are influenced and enriched by that diversity. I want to help destroy the stereotype of any music. My mother's last name is 'Cañas', which means 'Canes' in Spanish. So that's me.... HOBO CANE.”

    Hobo Cane was awarded a Telly Award in 2015 for Best Original Music in a documentary called "The Forsaken". He’s also shared the stage with the likes of Chuck Berry, Los Lobos, Willie Nelson, Great Big World and more. Most recently, Hobo Cane has found a warm songwriting community in Nashville with the Grammy-nominated Barry Dean as well as Grammy Award winners Luke Laird, Lori McKenna, and countless others. Ever the dynamic performer, Hobo Cane has also performed alongside Nashville hit makers Michael W. Smith, Jars of Clay, Chris Tomlin, and Ben Folds, in addition to securing countless television and movie song placements.



    Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

    Ghost Town Blues

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

    eventGhosttownbluesHorns, harmonies and homegrown instruments combined with an energetic and roots rich festival set makes Ghost Town Blues Band one of the “must see live bands on the festival circuit today.” Both Preston McEwen behind the drums and Matt Karner on the bass guitar are a punishing rhythm section behind multi-instrumentalist/frontman Matt Isbell with raunchy cigar box guitar licks and raspy "Dr. John-like, whiskey and gravel-soaked vocals." With the addition of Trombonist Suavo Jones, Sam Brady on B3 and Taylor Orr on lead guitar, the grooves go from funky to "funk-nasty" as the band gains more notoriety in the blues festival and jam circuit. Ghost Town Blues Band performed all across North America at over 24 festivals in 2016 and have 20 festivals and 5 international tours booked for 2017 already.

    Frank Ace opening for Akeem Kemp

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

    eventakeemkeepFrank Ace- guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, author... whichever hat (s) he's wearing, he's a "professional." Yes like most real Bluesmen, Frank pitched watermelons and picked cotton growing up in Arizona during the 1940's and 1950's. Like most real Bluesmen, he traded "pickin" cotton for "pickin" a guitar, and since he was 16 years old has spent most of his life with his guitar in his hands. Whether he's performing his own compositions or old standards, his full, rich baritone will make you an instant fan.

    Akeem Kemps' album "I Like It All" is now available on ITunes, Emusic, Rhapsody, and Amazon.com. Akeem has made a live television appearance on Channel 7 "Good Morning Arkansas" only at the age of 18, as also released his album at the age of 18.

    eventdelgadobrothersThe Delgado Brothers Band deliver a mighty musical expression of artistic soul,

    Beloved for their live shows and renowned for their signature LA sound, the

    Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm

     

    EventJoshHoyerJosh Hoyer & Soul Colossal's combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer's honest lyrics and his soulful (sometimes in-your-face) vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.

    The magic of their live show caught the attention of producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), who joined with the band to record their third full-length album. Their most ambitious project to date, Running From Love, was recorded at Nashville's historic Sound Emporium, and once again features Hoyer's trademark vocals and the band's signature groove. The album was released on April 8, 2016, on Silver Street Records, and is available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.

    Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal in 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning five-piece band includes some of the area's most revered and accomplished musicians. Joining Hoyer (keyboards/vocals) is Mike Dee (sax), James Fleege (bass), Benjamin Kushner (guitar), and Larell Ware (drums). Inspired by the sounds of Stax, Motown, Muscle Shoals, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal - to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles.

    The hard working band completed several national tours in 2015 and 2016, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states each year, including opening for George Clinton, Charles Bradley, Booker T Jones, and Muscle Shoals Revue. Their year-round tour schedule took them from coast to coast, including several major summer music festivals. The band's fevered pace continues in 2017, with Hoyer appearing as a contestant on Season 12 of the hit TV music show The Voice, a European tour, a live album release, numerous festival appearances, and a new EP in the works.

    "If James Brown and Otis Redding had a love child, it would be Josh Hoyer. The Lincoln, Nebraska, soul shouter, and his band of merry soulsters, Soul Colossal, deliver a sound so big, so funky, so wring-the-sweat-out-of-you energetic that it reaches through the speakers and shakes you until you start moving to its groove." - No Depression

    $10 advance, $15 at the door.
