RESURRECTION - Journey Tribute has performed for The San Francisco Giants, The Chicago White Sox, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and The Fraze Pavilion (a stage graced by Journey themselves), so their resume is one of distinction. As professionals, the band members are veteran musicians from Nashville who have worked for high profile artists, including Journey themselves. This tribute repeatedly exceeds the expectations of its clients and the most discerning Journey fans. “Resurrection” has surpassed all other Journey tributes in terms of organic Facebook likes and fan engagement. Spend a little time on their social media sites and you should quickly appreciate the level of excitement this band is generating across the globe.
 
SHENANDOAH - When country music lovers talk about the greatest groups in the genre, Shenandoah is always at the forefront of any discussion. Fueled by Marty Raybon's distinctive vocals and the band's skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known for delivering such hits as "Two Dozen Roses," "Church on Cumberland Road" and "Next to You, Next to me" as well as such achingly beautiful classics as "I Want to be Loved Like That" and the Grammy winning "Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart" duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Rabon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah's storied career.

 
JOHN ANDERSON - To put it simply, John Anderson is one of the greatest country music singers to ever step up to the microphone, possessing one of the most instantly recognizable vocal instruments in the history of the genre. On his latest album, Goldmine, released on his own Bayou Boys label, Anderson has completed a long overdue record of original songs. The award-winning songwriter wrote or co-wrote 12 of the album's 13 tracks. That will bring joy to the hearts of some of the most devoted fans in country music. Goldmine is also a record that, given the current state of contemporary country, could, like Cash and Haggard before him, find a home amid lovers of authentic music of any genre. 
 
LEAH ROSE is a country music singer/songwriter. She was the first place winner in the Z98.5FM Local Licks Songwriter Contest and the first place winner at the County Line Music Festival Songwriter Competition in 2017. Leah made her third annual appearance at the Frank Brown International Songwriters' Festival as the featured youth songwriter last November performing at Lulu's in Gulf Shores, Alabama and at the Flora-Bama in Perdido Key, Florida. She currently holds a song catalog of 85 originals, including two award-winning original songs. Her debut EP, “That’s Alright” was released in 2016 and is available on iTunes and CD Baby.

JOHN MILSTEAD - John wrote and produced his first project, "Sides of the Soul," in 2009. He toured over 30 shows with Sister Hazel, opened for BB King and sang on NBC'S Today Show. Of 12,000 entries, John's songs placed in the top 10 of the NSAI songwriing contest three years in a row. The Nashville writing community really sparked his interest in the craft itself, the talent pool there is so deep. John is currently living in Nashville, working on his second album, working with some of the top writers and producers in the world.rst project, "Sides of the Soul," in 2009.


 
BLUES COUNSEL started in 1987 as the unnamed Jam Band for the Kingdom Bound Christian Music Festival near Buffalo, NY. Some members have played together since the mid-seventies and even the newest members  of BC have been wth the band for nearly 20 years. Blues Counsel's Slow Demotion is their 2018 offering.


 
STORMY MONDAY - Get ready for some blues at the Amory Railroad Festival on Friday April, 13th at 5PM. Stormy Monday is a down home Blues band based out of Starkville, MS. During the past 5 years they have toured all over the state bringing their brand of Mississippi's music to every show. Along with their original tunes, they pay tribute to all the greats from Albert King and SRV to Muddy Waters, and everyone in between. If you wanna hear some smokin guitar solos, thumpin bass, poundin drums, soulful vocals, and red hot harmonica, don't miss this show, which will feature special guest Caleb Childs on lead guitar, filling in for the illustrious Brotha Drew Dieckmann. A disciple of the late great bluesman Willie King, and a member of groups such as the Old Memphis Kings, and up and coming blues duo Shank & Maim, Caleb is a blues guitar force to be reckoned with, and knows how to put on a show. John Gholston on rhythm and vocals, Zac Ashmore on drums and harmonica, and Barney "The Hitman" Davis on bass, round out the regular cast of characters on this one. So, bring your friends, your dancin shoes, and your listen ears and come for a good time, cause the boys are back in town! As they like to say, Have Blues Will Travel!
