Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters

Ronnie Earl's got it. Whatever it is that makes The Blues dig down into your soul and stir it up. Whatever it is that can hold your attention with six strings and 22 frets and never sound stale or mediocre. Whatever it is that makes you smile in the midst of a very dangerous and heartless world. Whatever it is, he's got it down. Maybe it was his years with Roomful of Blues. Or maybe it was the years touring with his own bands throughout the world that makes him equally conversant with the styles of Robert Jr. Lockwood, T-Bone Walker, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Seamus Kennedy (Ballroom)

Irish Entertainer - and so much more! Seamus Kennedy, originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been entertaining audiences all over the United States for the past 32 years. His ready wit and vast store of songs will make you forget your cares for a while as he encourages the crowd to sing along to silly lyrics and daft ditties.

The endless supply of rib-tickling jokes, the stories and one liners will leave you delighted. And when he plays a lively Irish jig, you might even jump up and dance.

The Skatalites

When Jamaica's premier Ska band, The Skatalites, began performing in 1964 they were so hot that their first rehearsal became a show. So many people had lined up outside the venue, they decided to just charge admission and let everybody in!

Wishbone Ash

From their meteoric rise to stardom in the early '70s as "Best New Band in the UK", through 36 years and 40 albums, this band still knows how to rock. The famous twin lead attack that is their trademark has never sounded better.

That Andy Powell was named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the top 20 guitarists of all time is evident every time they take the stage and proclaim their place in the genre of Classic Rock.
