Jamie Kent – Sunday June 10 (Genre: Country)
Named by RollingStone.com as an “Artist You Need To Know“, and dubbed a “Must Watch Artist” by The Huffington Post, one might say the future of Jamie Kent looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Will Hoge, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 150+ shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, and Marc Broussard. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. He’s officially endorsed by Durango Boots, BOSE and Telefunken Microphones, and his latest album “All American Mutt”, debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Kent was the only independent artist to break into the Top 20.
Food Truck: Fetty’s Street Food
Brass Tracks – Sunday June 24 (Genre: R&B of the 60s, 70s, 80s)
BTB is a high energy 8 piece horn band from Southwest Ohio. Step back in time as BTB pays tribute to all the great hits from bands like Chicago, Earth Wind & Fire, Blood Sweat & Tears, Tower of Power and many others. Nothing gets a crowd jumping like the horn-driven rock ‘n’ roll, R & B, and Funk sound of BTB.
The Brass Tracks Band will make you wanna get up off your brASS and dance!

Saved By The 90s – Sunday July 8 (Genre: 90s Cover Band)

Food Truck: Mai Chau
Nu-Blu – Sunday July 22 (Bluegrass)
Hailing from Siler City, NC, the textbook definition of a picturesque small southern town, Nu-Blu’s heart and soul is husband-and-wife duo Daniel and Carolyn Routh. Carolyn’s caramel-coated soprano is one of the band’s defining traits, at times a tender lullaby, at times a freight train headed straight for you, but always unwinding a surprising tale. Daniel is the group’s backbone, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who also handles band management. TJ Honaker on vocals and banjo, and Clint White on fiddle/mandolin round out the quartet’s warm, layered, American roots sound. Together they deliver upbeat, blazing-fingers pick work just as well as gentle, heartwarming ballads, and they do it all with a natural togetherness that can’t be faked, forged over hundreds of shows on the road.
Food Truck: Bo Jo’s Southern Eats
Adelee & Gentry – Sunday August 5 (Alternative Pop/Rock)
Sisters Adelee and Gentry have been singing and performing as a duo for the past five years in and around their hometown of West Alexandria, Ohio. These sisters of harmony have gone from being “just” small town girls to rising stars on the Nashville scene.
Food Truck: Aloha Streatery
Reaganomics – Sunday August 19 (Genre: 80s Rock)
If rock music of the seventies was a statement of excess and overproduction, eighties rock only furthered those excesses. The best example of this musical trend was eighties New Wave, which was essentially modernized seventies Disco. New Wave, however, encompassed a wider range than the dance music that proceeded it. The Fixx and Duran Duran were prime examples of groups that had wide appeal and received substantial airplay on MTV.
The Reaganomics are the midwest’s most exciting 80’s dance and party band. Based in Columbus, Ohio, The Reaganomics have become the area’s most electrifying eighties show. With the release of their latest CD, “Ten,” The Reaganomics have truly become the “must-see” act in the region.
