Bigfoot Research Organization featuring Rob Laurens, Lloyd Thayer, Joel Ninesling, Dave Dersham

Fact: The Bigfoot Research Organization (or BRO, for short) is a unique and as-yet-unclassified musical group. Hard to describe accurately, yet strangely mesmerizing to hear, you kind of have to experience the BRO first-hand to believe it. A BRO show offers an ideal opportunity to encounter this cryptomusicological phenomenon in its natural, nocturnal state.

Bob Franke

Bob Franke (it rhymes with “Yankee”) is at the peak of his considerable craft; brimming with the wise and spiritually generous songs for which he is best known, along with wrenchingly convincing topical songs and sugared with the hilarious. His are the kind of songs that really do have the power to change the world by being taken into the lives of people.

Grace Pettis & Robby Hecht

Some people just know how to make friends. With stories in her soul, a dash of courage, and a smile that melts walls, Grace Pettis is busy doing what she was born to do. Of course, the life of an independent touring artist is tons of hard work. Somehow she makes it look easy. Grace’s recent successes include a win at the 2011 Kerrville New Folk Contest, an Official Show Case at the 2012 New Music Seminar and a hugely successful fundraising campaign in which her fans contributed $32k toward the making of her new album, currently in production at Blue Rock Studio.
