Country/Folk Singer-Songwriter

DAN WEBER


This award-winning songwriter has been described as "The classic mid-life overnight sensation."

A gifted storyteller but still relatively new to songwriting, Weber was a 2012 finalist in the legendary Kerrville "New Folk" competition,

as well as the prestigious Dave Carter Songwriting contest in 2010.

  Weber was also a winner of the West Coast Songwriters Performing Songwriter competition in 2011 and 2009

along with two "Song of the Year" awards. Weber entertains audiences with inspired and energetic performances,

telling hilarious, true stories from the many roads he's traveled. 

His songs are both heartbreaking and funny, and are rich in imagery, history, and full of life's hopes and ironies.

BRENNEN LEIGH & NOEL MCKAY


Here's what the Chicago Tribune wrote about their latest CD, Before theWorld Was Made.

"It is a witty, heartfelt record of dusty barroom shuffles, sassy two-steps and ethereal country-folk.

It's informed by the vintage duets of George Jones and Melba Montgomery,

as well as the more modern pairing of John Prine and Iris DeMent."

And then at 9:30pm….

LA-based alt-country/Americana band

THE FAR WEST


"Singer-guitarist Lee Briante has a certain John Prine-ian rasp to his voice,

and he's got some of Prine's cut-to-the-bone lyrical wit. When they rev up, T

he Far West recall any number of the '70s cosmic cowboy rockers, but when they break down,

well that's the real good stuff" LA Weekly www.thefarwestband.com

DINOSAUR TRUCKERS


Since forming in 2006, the Dinosaur Truckers have toured extensively all over Europe

and gained the reputation of a "can't miss" live band,

creating a steamy atmosphere and the leaving the audience dripping with sweat

begging for more at their shows, whether they play at a

break neck speed or temporarily slow it down for the occasional somber ballad.

Instead they offer their fans pure, uncut, unadulterated music-potent and dangerous and not for the faint of heart.

Although rooted deep in American music, the Dinosaur truckers certainly aren't just another

folk act.  This four piece band merges a wide range of styles, from fast-paced bluegrass

to country, punk, rockabilly with a dose of mariachi thrown in at times.

They display a tremendous breadth of sound

and influences and consistently deliver  with an unparalleled energy.
