    Matthew Curry

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

    EventMatthewCurryAs much as Matthew Curry is invested in summoning the spirit of the blues — a commitment that’s in full display on the pair of smokin’ hot albums he’s released to date, 2011’s barn-burning If I Don’t Got You and 2013’s hard-charging testifier Electric Religion — the 19-year-old guitar slinger and soulful singer from Bloomington, Illinois likes to take a much broader view of his style. “If somebody came up and asked me what I would call my music, I don’t think I would say ‘the blues,’” he admits. “And I don’t think I would say ‘rock and roll,’ either. I would actually say, ‘good music.’ Blues is my first love, but I also love ’60s rock like Cream, The Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix. I’m also into things like Southern rock, Chet Atkins, and Roy Clark. All of those artists are complete musicians. They write great songs, and they sing great too. They’re just incredible.”

    Curry’s roots certainly run muddy-waters deep, something that’s not been lost on the guitar legends he’s had the honor of sharing the stage with over the past few years. “Matthew Curry is a phenomenal guitar player,” marvels Peter Frampton. “A highlight from my tour last year was jamming with him. He’s the next guitar hero!” Echoing that sentiment is Steve Miller, whom Curry both opened for and joined onstage during an exhilarating nine-date run in Canada in 2014 — and will again be his opening act for a slew of dates starting in May. Miller declares that Curry is a “wonderful guitar player [and] great songwriter in the Stevie Ray Vaughan area of virtuosity and originality.” Besides continuing on with the Steve Miller Band, Curry will also be opening for The Doobie Brothers and Don Felder. “I’m absolutely thrilled,” Curry says of supporting these and other heavy hitters. “We have so much fun out there and I really, really enjoy it. I grew up listening to those guys, so to be out on the road with people like Don Felder, The Doobie Brothers, and the Steve Miller Band is quite an honor.”

    Kris Lager

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8pm

    EventKrisLagerBandFor well over a decade The Kris Lager Band has been a vehicle for Kris Lagers unique brand of original music. Self described as Heavy Soul & Boogie Trance KLB doesn't fall neatly into any one category or genre. The best way to categorize them would be Feel Good Music because as soon as it hits you, you just feel good! Whether it is a funky soulful number, a groovy beat, a boogie guitar driven riff, or a tug on your heart strings ballad. A KLB song or show has that ability to just lift you up and make you feel good EVERYTIME!!

    A KLB show is a legitimate Rock n Roll Revival and an Electric Church. The energy this band throws out from the drop of the first note creates a feel good dancing, singing, and hollering great time. One that is truly contagious and impossible to sit still through. Kris Lager is one of the most dynamic front men you'll ever witness with an unrivaled level of intensity and showmanship. He delivers raw, and powerful music through his emotional guitar playing and singing.

    The Night Hawks

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

    EventNightHawks When Mark Stutso, master of the deep groove, joined The Nighthawks at the beginning of 2010, the 21st-century version of the legendary American roots band was complete. With Paul Bell and Johnny Castle in the band for nearly a decade, and founding father Mark Wenner the remaining original, this team outshines all previous incarnations.

    The Nighthawks was an idea in Mark Wenner's brain long before he was able to implement it. The musical product of pre-1958 radio in Washington, D.C., he did not know there were rules against mixing blues, R&B, honky-tonk country, doo-wop, gospel and rockabilly into one delicious stew. This unique sound along with decades of experience make The Night Hawks a band that you dont want to miss.

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

    Hector Anchondo

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

    eventHectorHector Anchondo doesnt just play the blues he lives and breathes the blues. At 16-years-old, the budding musician picked up his first guitar and never looked back. He began an instant love affair with the instrument, especially Fenders. Born in Omaha, but raised seven miles outside of Salem, Missouri, Anchondo was able to take advantage of the tranquil farm life and learn guitar at a steady pace. He was drawn to those artists who played Fender Stratocasters like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton, but also respected the country greats such as Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Sr. As he got older, his propensity for music only intensified. After playing countless shows at family gatherings and hole-in-the-wall dive bars, Anchondo made the move back to Omaha, Nebraska in 2000. His first official recording, Rookies of the Year, was with his first band, Anchondo, and featured more energetic, Latin-influenced grooves. Recorded by the infamous A.J. Mogis of Presto! Studios (and later Saddle Creek Records), the album funded any touring for the next few years. With a home base in Omaha, it made traveling much easier.

    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.
