The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band
Three time BMA nominee's The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band are "the greatest front-porch blues band in the world". They are led by Reverend Peyton, who most consider to be the premier finger picker playing today. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy, country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. Their latest record Dance Songs For Hard Times went #1 on the Billboard, iTunes and Sirius XM Blues Charts and was produced by Grammy winner Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton).
Scott H. Biram
Scott H. Biram unleashes a fervent display of conviction through, not only the genuine blues, classic country, bluegrass, and rock n roll, but he seals the deal with punk, heavy metal, and frankly, anything else he wants to. He’s The Dirty Old One Man Band.
In her enchanting blend of Americana, folk and soul, relatable situations are brought to life in your own imagination. For singer-songwriter Rose Marin, putting the words to paper is the only way for her to tell her story. As she translates her most personal stories and thoughts into genuine songs , she turns her vulnerability into strength. In real life she is a closed book, but on stage she completely exposes herself.
Violet's Tale was founded in Heerlen, in 2014 when Edith Spies- Wawroska and Jeroen Rabeling started working together writing music. In a short period of time they became a full band and started releasing songs. Country and Americana is what they make although they don't fear trying other styles in their songwriting.
