Good Rockin' Tonight is a 1950's Rock and Rockabilly Tribute that features professional Nashville musicians who perform the most influential songs in Rock and Roll history.
The band covers the songs of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran, Roy Orbison and more with excited energy and musical accuracy. Good Rockin Tonight also recently recorded a live album, due out soon at the Legendary Sun Records in Memphis where the genre of Rock n Roll was created
Once the best-kept secret of Dallas’ music scene, Joshua Ray Walker catapulted himself into the international spotlight with his 2019 debut, Wish You Were Here. An album of character-driven songwriting and golden-era Texas twang, Wish You Were Here didn’t just nod to the larger-than-life troubadours who’d inspired Walker’s craft — it brought him into their ranks, too, adding Walker’s name to the shortlist of songwriters worthy of carrying the torches of Guy Clark, John Prine, and Blaze Foley.
What may have looked like overnight success to an outsider was, in reality, the product of a decade-long climb up the industry’s ranks. A working musician since the age of 13, Walker spent years balancing his gigs as a sideman with a dizzyingly busy schedule of solo shows, regularly racking up more than 250 gigs annually. He sharpened his songwriting, too, developing a blend of autobiography and fiction that often revealed as much about the song’s creator as its characters. That prolific approach now leads Walker to 2020’s Glad You Made It, a sophomore record that both matches and magnifies the vital, vulnerable lure of his debut.
MIKE AND THE MOONPIES RELEASE ‘CHEAP SILVER AND SOLID COUNTRY GOLD’
Sixth Studio Album Recorded at London’s Abbey Road; Features London Symphony Orchestra and Guest Vocals from Shooter Jennings, Nikki Lane and More
“The Year’s Most Sophisticated Country Album….” Rolling Stone Country
Mike and the Moonpies released their sixth studio album, ‘Cheap Silver and Solid Country Gold,’ today. Produced by Adam Odor, this project was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with help from the London Symphony Orchestra and is the Austin-based band’s most adventurous record to date — an album that diversifies the band's honky-tonk roots by adding lush strings, cinematic arrangements, and collaborative songwriting to the mix. Inspired in part by the classic "countrypolitan" music of the 1960s and early '70s, these songs find frontman Mike Harmeier channeling the smooth delivery of crooners like Glen Campbell and Frank Sinatra, backed by a band of road warriors who all played a major role in the songs' construction. The result is a modern record steeped in everything that made their previous work so compelling: sharp storytelling; honest, dynamic performances; and a willingness to step far outside the box turning vintage influences into a contemporary that's dark, reflective, and refined.
Although largely recorded in London, ‘Cheap Silver and Solid Country Gold’ still owes its inception to Texas, where the bandmates (pedal steel player Zach Moulton, guitarist Catlin Rutherford, bassist Omar Oyoque, keyboardist John Carbone, drummer Kyle Ponder) spent a week co-writing and arranging the eight-song collection at renowned yellow DOG Studios in Wimberley, TX.
This LIVERPOOL based Beatles Tribute Band was the resident band for over a decade at the world famous CAVERN CLUB, where The Beatles got their start. These childhood friends have played in 20 countries, selling out shows worldwide.
Experience the Mersey Beatles as never before with their all NEW HITS show!!! The show will start as the lads return in the familiar suits of Beatlemania and grow older before your eyes via several quick costume changes; they will take the audience on a trip featuring 30 of the greatest hits from all eras.
See for yourself why John Lennon’s sister, Julia Baird, said: “The Mersey Beatles played the Cavern Club for over 18 years and are one of the best you will ever see!”

"Alabama's B.B. Palmer creates music steeped in American Country Music while keeping an eye on contemporary events. You can hear this on the latest
Palmer opus, Krishna Country, a record that bridges the distant between Ravi Shankar and Tom T. Hall with remarkable aplomb." - Pop Matters
"The 'Lee County's Finest' album is a one & done kind of listen. It's an intricate yet simple telling of struggle vs. triumph, good vs. evil, & lucid dreams vs. harsh political realities. In my opinion, these are the primary themes of the record and they are wondrously interwoven within 11 songs that flow together as one concept." - RICKY'S REVIEWS // Nashville TN
"On repeated listens, the songs unfurl as the lyrics sink into your consciousness, suggesting questions as much as revealing answers. The depths of these songs seem to plunge further away as you become more familiar with them, until you are staring into the abyss of pain and struggle that is the human condition, wrestling with the facts of reincarnation, resurrection and Armageddon. As I said, this is existential honky-tonk." - Tony Sexton, Whiskey Preachin - Brighton UK
Hailing from the heart of railroad country in Opelika, Alabama, B.B. Palmer reworks the southeastern country sound with their "existential honky-tonk" (Mobile Press Register) songs and mesmerizing live show.
B.B. Palmer has shared bills with greats such as: Alan Jackson, Dawes, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Earth Wind & Fire, Brent Cobb, Mike and The Moonpies, Old Crow Medicine Show, American Aquarium and Andrew Combs.

Anne E. DeChant
“She is what the future of Americana music needs to be in order to endure – a passionate prophetess who has come in from the wild, rough edges intact, and ready to rock.” - No Depression
Anne E. DeChant is a Nashville recording artist originally from Avon Lake, Ohio. She is a 5-time winner of Cleveland's Singer-Songwriter of the Year and a 2020 Kerrville Folk Festival Songwriting Competition Finalist and creator of "The 11:30 Bathroom Break".
DeChant is first and last a story-teller, an artist who writes with a shit-kicker urgency and sweet understanding of the people who stumble and keep keeping on. She's performed with Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Don Henry, Travis Meadows and a host of others. Anne E. was the selected local artist at Lilith Fair (Cleveland) and has delivered stand out shows in storied venues ranging from The Bluebird Café, The Bitter End, Evening Muse, The Alabama Country Music Hall of Fame to the Clinton White House.
Both independently and as part of the O’Connor Band, Forrest has performed and/or recorded with Paul Simon, Zac Brown, Judah & The Lion, Kenny Loggins, Clint Black, Emmylou Harris, Suzy Bogguss, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Dan Tyminski, and many others. He has played several times at The Grand Ole Opry as well as at other notable venues and festivals around the country, including Fenway Park, the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards Ceremony, the Strathmore Center for the Arts, RockyGrass Festival, DelFest, and Grey Fox. He also appeared in the final episode of the fourth season of ABC’s hit series Nashville, performing behind Chris Carmack’s character, Will Lexington.
Prior to the O’Connor Band, Forrest toured nationally as a duo with Kate (sometimes along with his college buddy, singer-songwriter Jim Shirey) and frequently performed as a sideman at The Station Inn in Nashville. In 2014, he won the Tennessee State Mandolin Championship.
Tulsa native Isaac Eicher grew up in a musical household and started playing the mandolin at 9 years old. He inherited a multifarious taste of music from his parents, who are both well-accomplished artists- violinist Shelby Eicher and vocalist Janet Rutland. Eicher's parents played all styles of music including jazz, bluegrass and western swing, in their home as he was growing up. In his teen years, Eicher evolved into an extraordinary musician and began to compete on a national level, winning first place prizes at the Walnut Valley Mandolin Championship in 2006 and Rockygrass in 2010.
After graduating high school in 2009, Eicher's musical journey took a very interesting turn. He enrolled in the University of Oklahoma, and developed a new interest: language arts. Eicher became enamored with the Spanish language and learned it very quickly. To further his studies, he went abroad to Valencia, Spain, to immerse himself fully in the culture. With mandolin in tow, Eicher’s musical style became greatly impacted by the pursuit of learning Spanish. He began to incorporate world music styles like gypsy swing, Brazilian samba, and Cuban montunos to his already strong foundation in jazz and bluegrass music.
In 2018, Eicher released his debut solo album “Native Language,” featuring original music arranged for an acoustic quartet. Currently, Eicher resides in Nashville, Tennessee where he performs with a wide range of artists, including wife Marcela Pinilla, and groups such as Hot Club Time Machine, Forrest O’Connor, The Jazz Grass Association, Giovanni Rodriguez and Rebecca Frazier, to name a few. Producers and recording artists also call upon Eicher for his specific sound on the mandolin for their projects.

VIP Tickets: $75 (25 available) - early entry for sound check with a meet and greet with Garrison and Matthew following.
Garrison Starr thought she was done playing music. A lifetime of trauma, from her upbringing in a fundamentalist Christian household to more than two decades navigating the music industry, left her spirit broken. With her days as a major-label artist behind her, the Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, and producer was ready to pack it in.
"I could never get free from the feeling that what I had to say didn't matter to anybody. And that I was a failure," says Starr. "I was like, 'You know, I'm just gonna stop trying.' So I stopped trying and just started working on myself."
That an artist of Starr's caliber should feel this way seems unfathomable. She scored her first hit with 1997's acclaimed "Superhero," then went on to release 15 solo albums and tour with Melissa Etheridge, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Lilith Fair. Starr's songs appeared on countless TV shows like Grey's Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars. She even collaborated with close friend Margaret Cho on a comedy album and podcast.
Starr always prided herself on writing her own material — a fact driven in part, she admits, by her own insecurities. Looking to open a new chapter in her life, she decided it was time to work behind the scenes. She threw herself into songwriting collaborations and a new role penning songs for other artists.
Or so she thought. Having learned to exercise her creative muscles once more, she discovered a voice that was distinct, powerful: Garrison Starr's. Girl I Used to Be is the fruit of those labors, a nine-track album of self discovery due to be shared with the world by Soundly Music on March 5, 2021. Starr's first new music since her 2017 EP What if There is No Destination and first full-length in nearly a decade, it was produced by longtime friend Neilson Hubbard, engineered by Danny Aldredge, and features cowrites with talented young songwriters like Carly Paige, Katie Pruitt, and Dominique Arciero.
From haunting acoustic ballads to gritty rock and roll songs filled with swagger and attitude, Matthew Mayfield has spent the past decade releasing music that has changed the hearts and lives of his listeners. His latest LP, Gun Shy, is a collection of songs as varied as the emotions each of us feels. If his previous release, RECOIL, was the fruit of an intense effort by Mayfield to depict the good, the bad, and the ugly in the world he inhabited, Gun Shy is a look into all worlds – those full of darkness and hope.
Gun Shy is now available on all digital platforms worldwide. Physical copies are available on matthewmayfield.com.

Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter and former frontman of The Ugly Americans and The Scabs, Bob Schneider has become one of the most celebrated musicians in the live music capital. Drawing from a range of diverse musicals styles, Schneider’s talent has defied genres.
Schneider will be releasing a new record ‘In A Roomful Of Blood with A Sleeping Tiger’ in August 2021 with supporting tour dates throughout the US.
Combining elements of funk, country, rock, and folk with the more traditional singer/songwriter aesthetic, Schneider draws inspiration from the ’70s with a modern twist, reminiscent of contemporaries such as Beck. His catalogue is both uplifting and sober, unafraid to tackle powerful subjects like alienation, drug addiction, and lost romance in addition to celebrating life’s joys.
Schneider has won more than 59 Austin Music Awards including Best Album, Best Songwriter, Best Musician, and Best Male Vocals making him the most decorated artist in Austin music history.
However, Schneider’s fan base reaches far beyond the city limits of Austin. He started gaining national recognition when he released 2001’s Lonelyland, his major-label debut for Universal Records, followed by 2004’s I’m Good Now. Since leaving Universal, Schneider has gone on to release more award-winning albums under Vanguard and began releasing “side projects” on his label, Shockorama Records.
He has released more than a dozen albums, written over 1,000 songs, is a published author, and is also an avid painter and collage artist – and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
