Dirty Bourbon River Show - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Dirty Bourbon River Show
The Dirty Bourbon River Show deftly melds sounds that range from hard-edged blues to Lisztian piano driven ballads to New Orleans brass into a result that is truly a blast of new energy into the musical landscape. Dirty Bourbon grabs hold of audiences, fascinated by their eccentricity and dexterity coupled with their ability to harken back to by-gone eras in music. Since forming in early 2009, the Dirty Bourbon River Show has released 10 studio albums and played over 1000 live shows, fast earning them a stellar reputation for their tight, multi-faceted sound and high-energy performances. They can be found bringing their blend of "New Orleans Big Brass Circus Rock" all over the USA, performing at festivals and respected venues year-round.

The Dirty Bourbon River Show is comprised of Noah Adams (vocals, piano, guitar, accordion, trumpet, trombone), Matt Thomas (vocals, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet), Nick Garrison (vocals, trombone, piano), Jimmy Williams (bass, sousaphone, flute) and Scott Graves (vocals, drums, percussion).
Their albums and live shows (both heavily intertwined) pair exuberant, syncopated lyrics with complex, harmony-rich songwriting and orchestration. They switch instruments mid-show (sometimes even mid-song), they all sing (except the drummer, of course), and they all have a penchant for theatrics (?reballs, group chants and stomps, whiskey pours – whatever the imagination calls for).

The Dirty Bourbon River Show is currently touring in support of their 10th studio album "The Flying Musical Circus".
St. Cinder - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
St. Cinder
St. Cinder is a six piece band of friends formed by a lucky meeting of vagabond musicians in Ashland, Oregon. They happily resurrect and revitalize the many branches of the Americana family tree including jug music, rag-blues, jazz, and folk classics. These foot-stomping traditionals are interspersed with unique original songs which haunt, uplift, and rejoice. St. Cinder is often reminded that their contagious energy and lighthearted presence makes their shows more than just a musical performance—they are a gen-u-ine good time. Their first self-published studio record, Vagabond Dreams, debuted in the winter of 2015.
The DiTrani Brothers - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The DiTrani Brothers
The DiTrani Brothers is a four-piece acoustic ensemble drawing influence primarily from early French and American jazz, ragtime, and Eastern European folk music. Instrumentally, the line-up includes accordion/banjo, guitar, washtub bass and drums. In addition to playing traditional tunes, the band’s original music draws from the past while maintaining a unique sound both modern and nostalgic. DiTrani Brothers has spent the past several years touring the country, playing from coast to coast with the likes of the Devil Makes Three, Lost Dog Street Band, Resonant Rogues, and St. Cinder. Described as “apocalyptic junk jazz,” the DiTrani Brothers and their band leave audiences in revelry as they dance to the wistful tune of a waning world.
