Music

 
FruitionBand.jpg

FRUITION

Friday, 9/22 8:30pm

This Oregon-based quintet has grown from a rootsy, string-centric outfit to a full-fledged rock band with an easy but powerful grasp of soul, blues and British Invasion-era pop. On their studio albums and live shows, Fruition shows the complete force of their newly expanded and electrified sound, matching daring musicality with sophisticated, melody-minded songcraft. With each member trading vocal duties and gutsy yet graceful songwriting, Fruition infuses their sound with timeless urgency and three-part harmonies that never fail to grab the audience by the heart and take them along for the ride.


BIG Something.jpg

BIG SOMETHING

Friday, 9/22 6:30pm

A 6-piece powerhouse band with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk and improv to take listeners on a journey through a variety of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. BIG Something has opened for Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic, Robert Randolph, moe. and The B52s. In February 2017, the group released their 4th full-length album, Tumbleweed, which was recorded with their longtime producer, Grammy-nominated John Custer.


The Broadcast.jpg

THE BROADCAST

Friday, 9/22 4:30pm

The Broadcast’s sophomore album, From The Horizon was produced by Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Tom Petty) and received rave reviews from Relix Magazine, Paste and Live for Live Music, comfortably seating the band in the company of their Americana contemporaries. With a mix of soul, blues and classic rock arrangements, The Broadcast has shared stages with Mavis Staples, John Prine, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The Wood Brothers, Brandi Carlisle, Keller Williams, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, George Porter Jr. (Funky Meters), Betty LaVette, Charles Bradley and Holly Williams.


AndersOsborneJimMinja.jpg

Anders Osborne

Saturday, 9/23 8:30pm:

Since 1989, Anders Osborne has been living true
and making music that stirs the soul. With a guitar-laden soulful sound, Osborne’s lyrical writing has produced hits for Tim McGraw, Keb’ Mo’ and Jonny Lang, including “Watch the Wind Blow By,” “Favorite Son” and “Pleasing You.” Osborne’s music is like blues bathed in West Coast sunshine and brotherly compassion. He’s a torchbearer for rock ‘n’ roll with blood in its veins and a heart in its hands.


MarchFourthBand1.jpg

MARCHFOURTH

Saturday, 9/23 6:30pm

MarchFourth is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires unabashed dancing and an atmosphere of celebration. Dressed in redesigned marching-band-themed costumes, they bring electric bass, 4-piece percussion corps, a 7-part brass section, dancers, acrobatics, stilt-walkers and a very diverse musical repertoire. M4’s show will take you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of eastern Europe, to the African jungle by way of Brazil, echoing the deepest grooves of American funk, rock and jazz - then boiling it all together in cinematic fashion.


Bonfire Dub2.jpg

BONFIRE DUB

Saturday, 9/23 4:30pm

Bonfire Dub plays a deep and powerful blend of roots music — original songs with rich melodies, featuring down tempo, acoustic laced and electric steel driven reggae, folk and dub. Bonfire’s lyrical repertoire is inspired from eastern philosophy, indigenous struggles, political injustice, international relief efforts and a deep respect for the soul of love and the balance of nature. Bonfire’s founder, Scotty Stoughton, interweaves stories of hope and struggle, derived from his travels around the globe.
