    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.

    Kaopectones

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm
    eventKaopectonesThe Kaopectones are Kansas City's most unique "Rock" musical offering. Four veteran players reproducing timeless music from 4 decades of Rock. And all without the use of prerecorded or sequenced backing tracks, Auto-Tune, or other gadgets and tricks designed to fool the listener. Real music played by real people. The way it is supposed to be.

    Make no mistake, The Kaopectones are, first and foremost, a "Rock" band. They chose the "Rock" designation, as it encompasses much more than the traditional sub genre labels like "Rock and Roll", "Classsic Rock", "Pop Rock" or "Progressive Rock". The Kaopectones run the entire spectrum, stylistically, while never forgetting that the "Rock" attitude and approach are what drives all of the music they play. Loud and proud, with the edge and drive necessary to put the music across to the listener in the manner envisioned by the original artists.

This all-star lineup includes Adam Becker (keyboards); Lucas Parker (guitar, vocals); Bryan Burkhart (drums); Tom Smith (trumpet, vocals); and Supa Man (bass).

    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.
