Fri17Nov2017Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pmIf you haven't experienced the high energy, swamp funky zydeco sound of Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, it is high time that you join the legions of fans that have.
Once the accordion-playing virtuoso grabs the mic and takes to the stage with his band mates, audiences are treated to a show like no other. Chubbys sound is infectious a concoction of blues, 70s funk, rock and roll, and good-ole zydeco flavor and makes even the most timid individuals get their feet a movin'.

Sat18Nov2017Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pmFor 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.

Fri24Nov2017Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pmBlack Friday Show!!! The Solo Hogs began playing in 1994 in Topeka. Founding members Michael Stratton (guitar) and Lew Spring (bass) began as an acoustic duo inspired by the likes of Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal. 1995 saw Les Goering (harmonica, guitar) and Mark Paquette (drums) join the band. They ramped up the electric gear and with the line-up complete they began playing regularly in the Midwest and built a following due to there brand of energetic blues and rock with strong harmony vocals. They continued as weekend warriors for twelve years and then split to pursue other projects but continued to re-unite for "special" shows. 20 years later the band is fully re-united and the energy is at its highest level ever! "When Pigs Fly" was recorded live at TPAC in 2001 and is the only recording to date but more projects are in the works. "We still get out the hollow bodies and return to our roots at every show." Come early, stay late, a great time is guaranteed!

A thriving music culture with a long history has continued through today. Our music scene has continued to gain national attention through local favorite Barrett Babers appearance as a finalist on The Voice singing competition. Our community produces the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ event, which is the second largest motorcycle rally in the U.S. Event producers make a point to put local musicians front and center for audiences.

Youve heard the adage The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We are a group made stronger still by the experience of our individual members. Divas On Fire is a way for synergy to take over and magnify our strengths in an emotionally powerful connection to our audiences. Drawing on our individual experiences as songwriters and touring artists, we fan the flames to give audiences a moving experience they can see, hear and feel deep down.
