Blackberry Smoke with special guests Magpie Salute

Pigeonholing Blackberry Smoke has never been easy. Since emerging from Atlanta in the early ‘00s, the quintet — vocalist/lead guitarist Charlie Starr, guitarist/vocalist Paul Jackson, bassist/vocalist Richard Turner, drummer Brit Turner and keyboardist Brandon Still — has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk.

This fluidity has paid off handsomely, in the form of two Billboard chart-topping country albums, 2015’s Holding All The Roses and 2016’s Like An Arrow. (For good measure, the latter also topped Billboard’s Americana/Folk album chart.)

Fantastico Negrito is the incarnation of a musician who is reborn after going through a lot of awful shit. In fact, the name Fantastic Negrito represents his third rebirth, literally coming back from death this time. The narrative on this man is as important as the sound, because the narrative is the sound. Songs born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music. Slide guitar, drums, piano. Urgent, desperate, edgy. Fantastic Negrito is the story of a man who struggled to “make it”, who “got it”, who lost it all, and somehow managed to find his way back. These are singular songs by a true musician who writes and produces his own work. His songs are his fuel as he continues on the third comeback of his life, at a time when our world is in upheaval.

Influenced by the likes of Justin Timberlake and Bryson Tiller, he released his solo debut, "Alone," soon after.

With its smooth, breezy sound, the romantic "Mine" became a streaming hit and landed Bazzi on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2018. 

His debut full-length, COSMIC, arrived months later. Featuring additional singles "Gone" and "Honest," the set debuted at 35 on the Billboard 200. ~ Neil Z. Yeung

Jesus Culture Music Presents Kim Walker-Smith On My Side Tour

While she maintains a solo career, Kim Walker-Smith is also a member of the Jesus Culture band and youth outreach ministry. Born in Albany, Oregon, the future singer, songwriter, and worship leader moved to Redding, California to attend college. It was there that she began attending the Bethel Church, where she later became worship leader, and in 1999, the church launched its Jesus Culture ministry. She made her recording debut in 2006 on the first Jesus Culture Music release Everything, then two years later her solo album Here Is My Song appeared under the name Kim Walker. Further Jesus Culture releases and her marriage to photographer Skyler Smith kept her from returning to her solo career until the 2013 live album Still Believe arrived as a Kim Walker-Smith release. The Smiths put out a collaborative effort later that year with the folkier Home, and in 2014 Walker-Smith presented her first seasonal album, When Christmas Comes. It reached the top half of the Billboard 200. Her first LP to consist entirely of original songs and no covers, On My Side followed in 2017 faring similarly well on both the Christian and pop charts and prompting the release of a live concert album, On My Side, in early 2018. ~ David Jeffries

Fiercely devoted to making music, even from an early age, the two siblings share a singular body of work that’s found them spending more than 20 years of working the road and paying their dues, resulting in seven albums spanning rock, soul, folk and Americana. Never content to be typecast, they’re fiercely devoted themselves to the cause of making music, undeterred by fame, fortune or the pitfalls that frequently obstruct the path to success.

Aaron Neville Duo

Until now, it's been easy to separate Aaron Neville's career into two separate but equal strains: the funky stuff he's favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he's punching his own time card as a solo artist. Casual fans might admit they don't know much -- to borrow a phrase -- about Neville's musical center, but they've perceived a certain split in his career. An education is about to be provided, then, in the form of Apache, a solo album that makes the case for Aaron Neville as the most holistic of soul men. Its hard R&B side matches anything the Neville Brothers ever recorded for true grit, while still allowing plenty of space for a singer who's arguably the most distinctive vocal stylist on the planet to tell it like it is.

An Intimate Solo / Acoustic Listening Performance by Citizen Cope

Performances: 6:30pm and 9:30pm. This event is 21 and over

Dug deep into the rich soil of American music, Cope’s roots are complex You may think of Bill Withers or Neil Young or John Lee Hooker or Van Morrison or Willie Nelson or Al Green. Yet, listening to Cope, you also may think of none of the above. You may not think at all, but rather feel a man exposing stories that haunt his heart.

He was born Clarence Greenwood, a child of the seventies, and his life journey is as singular as his art. He is the radically mashed-up product of Greenville, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; Vernon, Texas; Austin, Texas; Washington, DC; and Brooklyn, New York. These locations are felt everywhere in his stories. His sounds are southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, and painfully romantic.

$1 from every ticket will be donated to various charities in the US that support enriching youths in need through arts and education. For more information visit www.citizencope.com

Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender, the guitar and amplifier Guru, and Leo asked Dale to play his new creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.

Ronnie Milsap

Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment. Country music couldn’t have found a man more suited to lead the charge. Steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, Milsap found inspiration early in life, in a wide variety of music. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues -- music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville. Those earthy sounds about life and love provided a young, impoverished blind boy with a connection to a world beyond the harsh reality of his daily existence.
