Rick Estrin & The Nightcats
Larger-than-life blues star Rick Estrin has piloted the wildly fun and musically fearless Rick Estrin & The Nightcats for the last decade, touring the world and proving night after night why they won 2018s Blues Music Award for Band Of The Year. The limitless combined talents of blues harmonica virtuoso and sly, soulful singer Estrin, guitar mastermind Kid Andersen, keyboard wizard Lorenzo Farrell and endlessly creative drummer Derrick DMar Martin take Estrins inventive, original songs to new and unexpected places. On stage, the bands ability to deliver an unpredictable, no-holds-barred show is unmatched.
Nate Myers and the Aces
Lead by vocalist Nate Myers and his harmonica, the band creates a loose, casual atmosphere in which everyone can relax and have a good time! Whether the audience prefers to sit back and listen or get up and shake that thang, there is something for everyone. Nate Myers is an excellent musician, songwriter, and performer the consummate entertainer who keeps the audiences attention throughout the entire performance. On a typical evening, audiences can hear influences from many forms of American music blues, funk, hip hop, rockabilly, country and improvisation. Nate Myers & the Aces take all these styles they love and weave them into a tapestry of their own.
SlideWinder Blues Band
SlideWinder Blues Band hits hard with its own brand of Texas and Chicago driven contemporary blues. For those times when the 1, 4, 5 just isn't enough, the bands sonic pallet is peppered with flavors from the Mississippi Delta and New Orleans.
Now in its fourth year, SlideWinder isnt just a band, its a community. Winner of the Bucks Happening List for two consecutive years for best band category, as well as a debut record, SlideWinder is poised to expand it's footprint.
Between sets, you'll once again be entertained by Voodoo Deville in the beer tent! The Voodoo DeVille band has been a local Chester County favorite since 1998. While Chicago blues was their starting point, their repertoire has expanded to include jump, boogie, swing, early rock 'n roll, and rockabilly. Counting many of the greats as their idols and influences, they don't feel bound to stick strictly to one style or one way of playing. If it's fun to play, then it's in their set list. The music is upbeat and danceable and proven to please a wide range of audiences.
