The Show - Story, Stomp, & Grass
The Christian Lopez Band -  Christian Lopez and The Christian Lopez Band are not merely riding the wave of Americana Music, the West Virginia natives, are bending it to its knees. With the will of his voice and the stomp of a steady beat, Christian Lopez and his band are pioneering their own brand of Alt. Folk Country Rock. Like a young Whitman, Lopez translates the iconic America before him into rousing romps and searing serenades employing crisp and thoughtful imagery and storytelling. Lopez is turning traditional songwriting on its head. Lopez takes listeners on a heartfelt rampage through emotion, energy and excitement caring less about the hook then hooking them in with the range and passion in his voice. One moment the music traverses the depths of one's interior life and the next it rips the listener into a frenzy - a call to stomp, romp and roll.

Jim Avett -  Jim Avett grew up in a home full of love and music, and learned the importance of hard work and honest living. Jim and his wife instilled these values in his children, Bonnie, Scott and Seth, (now The Avett Brothers) and of course Jim's guitar was ever present, and there was always singing. Jim's shows consist of beloved country tunes, his original ballads, and the stories he tells to introduce them. One comes away from a Jim Avett performance with the feeling that this is an honest man sharing his life and love of music with you. It's like spending the evening on the front porch singing and talking with an old friend.

Grace & Tony - She played bluegrass. He played punk When Grace and Tony White met, they fell in love and the music just followed after.
"I had seen Grace play years ago and, not only was I impressed, I developed a serious secret crush," Tony reminisced. "When I found out that she was learning mandolin and banjo, I took a shot and asked her to jam with me. The rest is history."
Exposed to music early on in their lives by family (Grace's liked the Southern styles from gospel all the way to rock, while Tony learned from his brother, John Paul White of The Civil Wars fame), Grace & Tony experimented with an unlikely blend of genres by mixing punk, folk, bluegrass, and Texas swing, to create something new. What resulted was a blend of music for those searching for what's beyond the norm:  "Punkgrass" was born.
