3 & Twenty from Easley, SC will be headlining this year's event! They have played at the last two festivals. 3 & Twenty's music transcends the limited boundaries of traditional and contemporary genres. It is country at its highest evolutionary level that cross reverberates with a unique blend of hip hop, rock, and R&B. Playing for 3 & Twenty are Adrian Lee (Vocals, Rhymes and Acoustic Guitar), Butch Gibson (Vocals and Harmonies), Jim Vollrath (Bass Guitar), Daniel Collins (Guitars) and Rusty Adams (Drums and Vocals). Staying true to their country roots, their writing is influenced by legendary artists like Hank Williams Jr., Johnny Cash, Alabama, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. They combine country with hip hop influences like Bone Thugs N Harmony and Dr.Dre, then add soulful harmonies inspired by Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight. You'll appreciate the eclectic, good ol' boy, rowdy back-road realism with a touch of "southern swang" (southern swagger with a twang) that makes 3 & Twenty appealing to all demographics.
Reservoir Dogs from Hartwell, GA return this year to rock the crowd with southern classic rock hits like no other. Playing for the Reservoir Dogs are John Atkinson (Vocals and Harmonica), Randy Rhea (Drums), Rich Smith (Guitar) and Tony Stewart (Bass Guitar).
Derrick Dorsey Band from Easley, SC can be defined as a Honky Tonk state of mind band because they play traditional and outlaw country with originals and covers. The band consists of Derrick Dorsey (Vocals and Rhythm Guitar), Cody Strickland (Drums), Tim McGatha (Lead Guitar and Vocals), and Reshana McGatha (Bass Guitar and Vocals).
Pink Truck from Hartwell, GA was put together just for this show! Playing for Pink Truck are Michelle Adams (Vocals), Jeff Adams (Guitar and Vocals), Karen Tucker (Keyboard and Harmony), Larry Tucker (Bass Guitar), Walter Gordon (Harmonica and Vocals), The BEE Man (Drums). With over 25 years of playing music, Pink Truck knows just how to blend R&B and classic rock.
Di-Mar-Co from Hartwell, GA plays a variety of country, southern classic rock and blues rock that will leave you singing along to your favorites! Di-Mar-Co's all Hartwell-homegrown band consists of Jody DiMarco (Guitar and Vocals), Nick DiMarco (Guitar and Vocals), Chris Whitfield (Cajon Percussion), Denny Martin (Drums, Percussion and Vocals), and Marshall Walker (Bass Guitar).
Barefoot Bandwagons from Elberton, GA delivers a performance of good music, easy listening, and an all-around good time by performing originals to the heart and soul of classic country music. Since their first album, "Bare My Soul," this Elberton homegrown band has grabbed the attention on their audiences. Barefoot Bandwagons is made up of two sisters, Cassie Mize (Vocals and Guitar) and Megan Landreth (Percussion and Harmony), and Jason Beggs (Guitar).
Phil Duncan and Wes O'Tuel are both Hartwell, GA boys. Audiences love to sing along as these two perform acoustic rock from the 70's, 80's and 90's.
Hannah and Garrett Richardson from Hartwell, GA. have been playing a variety of classic rock and county to the delight of audiences for the last 5 years.
