Dave Deon & the Soul Inspirations
Combining hot Southern Soul, jazz harmony and latin rhythms, David Deon &
The Soul Inspirations aim at the heart and mind. With performances that
range from a romantic croon to bluesy wail to the sanctified holler, The
Soul Inspirations aren't just another R&B band. Their debut release, "Let It
Go", evokes the slick funk of Chic, the sophisticated pop-jazz of Steely
Dan, and the searing, "I'm still standing" testifying of Harold Melvin & The
The product of David and Matthew Nelson's (The Dorothy Heralds, Josh Harty,
Lis Harvey) 20 year bond of brotherhood, The Soul Inspirations' mix early,
bare-knuckled Soul with Steely Dan-like arrangements and the straight up,

Catfish & Kavier
CatFish & Caviar perform an eclectic mix of classic Americana, modern country, folk and classic rock tunes inspired by both passion and adherence to the craft of making music. Fiddle and guitar, 2 great singers. Lots of merriment.
Buck Johnson and the Plumbers
There’s no one named Buck in the band, and none of them are plumbers. Just three old friends playing a whole bunch of their favorite tunes. Cuda on acoustic guitar, Carl on the bass with a hole, and Jason on the GuiTurk™, a hand-built guitar-based drum emulator. Old blues, classic rock and roll, country, lengthy Crazy Horse-style jams, and a handful of originals make up their set. But please don’t ask for ‘Mustang Sally’. (It makes Carl cranky…)
He lives the life of a Rockstar so you don't have too....:)

Mike Murphy & the MOB
A different shade of blues describes the creative and entertaining playing style of Midwest recording artist Michael “Big Dog” Murphy. His playing style is a more aggressive interpretation of the blues that is fueled by passion and guided by his heartfelt emotions. As he stays true to the feeling of the blues, Michael Murphy takes a different approach by delivering a mix of traditional with a twist for the unexpected. The Blues is a state of mind, and Michael Murphy’s state of mind is to take you for a memorable ride on the blues train that you will never forget...get your ticket and hold on for a wonderful experience that you will never forget!
The Men Of Blues, or MOB, for short, is a very aggressive blues band with a heavy rock influence. They offer many different styles of blues and older 60’s and 70’s classic and folk-rock tunes, all freshly interpreted with their own style! And Michael’s original tunes are so good, seldom do people recognize them as NOT being songs by otherwise famous artists. Although not really a dance club band, their sound and music are very danceable. And people like to dance to their music, but they seldom take their eyes off of the band. Many of today’s dance bands depend on not only talent, but also lighting gimmicks and other visual aids. The MOB, with the immense talent and member interaction on stage, do not rely on gimmicks! They are not “a copy band!” They don’t sound like anybody else! They are, simply put, the MOB!
