AMANDA LEE PEERS
September of 2014 was the world’s first encounter with Amanda Lee Peers on a global level. Singing her own soulful rendition of ZZ Ward’s “Put The Gun Down”, she was featured on NBC’s The Voice as a contestant on Gwen Stefani’s team. Since then, she released an EP titled Summertime State of Mind, toured the North East and has opened up for the likes of Sawyer Fredericks, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Mat Kearny and The Script.
Amanda has just finished up her second solo EP titled Sinner, which is set to release in Spring of 2018. A large departure from her last acoustic-based EP, Sinner shows a deeper side of Peers, reflected in the dark and haunting overtones in each song. She worked with producer Sam Polizzi to create a hybrid of dark soul, R&B and rock similar to the likes of Bishop Briggs and The Weeknd. https://www.amandaleepeers.com

The John Payton Project is a funk, reggae, ska, power pop, rockin’ blues explosion!
At a JPP show the band might take you from a deep reggae groove to a Talking Heads cover, from touches of Band of Gypsies-era Hendrix to flashes of eighties Bowie, weaving a kaleidoscopic soundscape that spans decades and nations. Not disjointed, but nebulous; tight, but soulful; frenetic, but funky, and always so very danceable.
Since nabbing a Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist in 2008, Gina Sicilia has enjoyed great chart and radio success in the genre. Tug Of War reached #3 on the Contemporary Blues Album chart and was the #1 roots album in Tennessee. “Abandoned” reached #2 on the Contemporary Blues Song chart, “He Called Me Baby” reached #1 on the Soul Blues Radio chart, “I Don’t Want To Be In Love” reached #3 on the Contemporary Blues Radio chart.
“I’m very influenced by being around musicians all the time, and being around so much live music,” she says. “Great things can come from being authentic and forming real friendships and connections with other musicians anywhere, but particularly in Nashville.”
Gina will release her eighth studio album, Heard the Lie, on August 31, 2018 via Blue Elan Records. Produced by Grammy-nominated Dave Darling, Siclia’s remarkable eighth body of work in just a little over a decade, is a testament to her ever evolving love and practice of blues and country music.
Don’t miss the Legendary Joe Beard and his band performing an evening of smooth Mississippi Blues.
“Joe’s smokey guitar riffs were developed in Ashland, a small town located in the Delta region of Mississippi, where one of the earliest styles of blues music originated.
There was always a guitar in Beard’s childhood home and oftentimes someone would be playing it. He grew up watching B.B. King, Matt “Guitar” Murphy and many other iconic blues musicians practice before gigs in the living room where he lived.
“Those musicians influenced me to a point where I was able to learn how to play the guitar, just by listening and watching them play,” Beard said. “When I picked up the guitar for the first time at 15 years old, I could play all my favorite blues songs.”
His music career has taken him around the world to places like Paris, India, Belgium and Sweden. And in 1989, he performed at President George H. W. Bush’s inaugural ball.” – Rodney Brown / Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
Joe was inducted to the Rochester Music Hall of Fame in 2017.
