Whey Jennings and the Cold Moses Express

Performing Friday @ 10:00pm

Funk is more than a musical genre, it’s a way of life.
And since that mindset is what Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band embodies every day,
the collective titled its fourth studio album Funk Life.The new record is as
sassy and self-possessed as lead track “24/7,” a fearless plunge into contagious
rhythms and bold horn hits. Recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in the Booty
Band’s hometown, Asheville, N.C.,

Funk Life paired the musicians with engineer Julian Dreyer(Band of Horses, Avett
Brothers, Zac Brown Band). The band was still arranging a couple of songs when
tracking began, leaving room for the element of surprise. That spirit of
excitement is captured on tracks like “Quick E,” an instrumental with plenty of
swagger and vintage cool; the bold, woman-power manifesto “Mama Feelgood”,
originally recorded by Lyn Collins; and “Wake Yo’Self,” a caffeinated dance
track that builds to a keys-driven crescendo.

Orleans

Performing Sunday @ 3:00pm

From their earliest days as a favorite at colleges and
clubs in the Northeast US … to studio and live collaborations with industry
greats Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Little Feat and others … to Top 10 success
with bona-fide classics such as “Still the One”, “Dance With Me” and “Love Takes
Time” … now celebrating their 40th year of creating musical history together,
Orleans has continually demonstrated “depth”.”Depth”: A word used to describe
sports teams who are multi-dimensional, movies that must be seen many times, art
that continues to reveal hidden meaning.

In the throwaway world of Rock & Roll bands, how often
do you see real depth? For the past 4 decades, Orleans has defied industry
pundits and career counselors by doing many different things well.Orleans has
been performing live nearly every year since 1972, always with at least half the
original members. They do it the old-fashioned way – they sing and play their
own stuff. Their oldest fans are bewildered and amazed at the fact that they
still sound as good as (or even better than) ever … especially their vocals!
Younger fans are simply impressed. Everyone agrees – these guys “still have it”.

The Babys

The Babys

Performing Sunday @ 12:00pm

Born in 1976, THE BABYS took on the classic rock world
head first with a full stage musical experience, giving rise to what quickly
came to be known as their ‘signature sound’. Billboard chart-climbers like
“Every Time I Think of You”, “Midnight Rendezvous” and “Isn’t It Time” helped to
launch them into worldwide recognition while also helping to carve out their
permanent place in music history. THE BABYS were the first band ever signed to a
million dollar record deal with Chrysalis Records on the basis of a ‘new’ thing
called ‘video’. THE BABYS classic songs have withstood the test of time – with
their hits still being played in rotation around the globe, and influencing
bands of ‘the day’ and emerging artists respectively. Rock radio DJ/music
enthusiast Paul Nicholls of Feel the Steel on Platinum Rock Radio UK echoed that
sentiment during his interview with THE BABYS in August 2016, stating, “Without
The Babys being around, music in the 80’s would’ve been a lot different.”After a
successful run from 1976-1981, THE BABYS disbanded, but are thrilled to be back
after a three decade absence! Co-founders Tony Brock (drums) and Wally Stocker
(lead guitar) launched a nationwide talent search at the end of 2012 to find the
right lead vocalist, additional guitarist, keyboardist and iconic Babettes to
capture and complete the full richest of the classic sound of THE BABYS, which
they found in lead vocalist/bassist John Bisaha, guitarist Joey Sykes,
keyboardist Louis Middleton and The Babettes; Holly Bisaha and Elisa Chadbourne.
Previous keyboardists have included Francesco Saglietti and Brian Johnson.

The Grass is Dead

The Grass is Dead

Performing Saturday @ 8:00pm

It is well known that roots music is passed down from
generation to generation. From grandparents to parents and from parents to their
children. The inevitable collision between the traditional past and the enormous
catalogue of modern music, both spiritual and psychedelic, is the fertile plain
that sprouted the roots of The Grass Is Dead. Initially formed as an acoustic
offshoot of one of the country’s most beloved GD tribute bands, Crazy Fingers,
The Grass Is Dead has evolved over the past ten years into a juggernaut of sound
and a festival favorite up and down the east coast, to Colorado and back. Their
live performances bring into view a traditional sensibility of bluegrass, swing,
and folk music launched directly onto a psychedelic paintbrush of modern
influences, most importantly, the music of the Grateful Dead. Captivating
audiences with their unique interpretations and thoughtful arrangements of songs
by the GD, Jerry Garcia, and many others, as well as their extensive file of
traditional roots music at their command, it’s only a matter of time until the
buzz that they have created will reach the West Coast as well. The Grass Is Dead
are very much alive and well, rocking out and and picking their way across this
great country.​

including Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson, Neil Young), Darrell Scott (Robert
Plant, Guy Clark), Will Kimbrough (Jimmy Buffett, Rodney Crowell), Gabe Dixon

stamp on this enduring expression of un-compromised songwriting.
