Todd Day Wait's Pigpen

In 2009, Todd Day Wait put everything he owned on the curb of his home in Columbia, Missouri, and started what would become a seemingly never-ending cross-county voyage. Traveling in a vegetable oil-powered airport shuttle bus, he headed out to California by way of the Rocky Mountains, and ended up in New Orleans. Along the way, he would find collaborators where he could, picking up one line-up for a few states, and rotating regionally. Relying on each musician’s various strengths, Todd would adapt his music to suit them, shifting genres as he did states. Through this process, Todd Day Wait arrived at a musical aesthetic that blends blues, folk, country, early R&B, and soul. In 2012, after years on the road, Todd Day Wait relocated to New Orleans and the permanent line-up of Todd Day Wait’s Pigpen was formed, including Matt Dethrow on upright bass, George Aschmann on fiddle, and Todd Day Wait on guitar. Today, Todd Day Wait’s Pigpen can be found playing on the streets of the French Quarter and in venues throughout New Orleans.

The Late Night Benedictions

Hailing from various points around Mid-Missouri, The Late Night Benedictions have been combining all of their favorite sounds and styles since 2011. That sound has been alternately described as "Soultry & Western", "roots-rock", "alt-country", "Americana", and "down-right good". With four songwriters and as many vocalists, this 5-piece's (sometimes more, sometimes less) breadth of style and genre recall such historic acts as the Eagles, Beach Boys, Flying Burrito Brothers, and Beatles, with more current nods toward Dwight Yoakam, the Avett Brothers and the Tedeschi/Trucks Band. Their first full-length album, Work Out Your Own Salvation, was released in November, 2013, on Home Tone Records, and 2015 will bring the follow-up, currently in progress.

John Galbraith & the Broken Promises

Former guitarist, songwriter, singer and founding member of The Goldbugs, Mondo, The Harrows and Polly Finn. Has also played with Steven Carrel and The Sad Bastards and The Wild Cat Daddies among others. Currently playing with John Galbraith and The Broken Promises.

Dave & Dyno and the Roadkill Orchestra

Dave and Dyno are Dave Dearnley and Don "Dyno" Penny.

Dave is a 2007 Walnut Valley Festival, Winfield, Kansas, New Song Showcase winner and 2008 alternate. Dyno is a 2009 Walnut Valley Festival, Winfield, Kansas, New Song Showcase alternate, accomplished advertising jingle and movie soundtrack writer.

Dave and Dyno met as competitors at a catfish tournament song writing contest in 2005 along the Missouri River, near the old port of Nashville. Yep, big time Nashville musicians. They have been creating a sensation, or commotion, or something in Mid Missouri ever since.

Their first CD, “Untreated and Released” can be found in places as far flung as the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, rural northern Maine and isolated mountains of Costa Rica. Dave and Dyno are currently working in the studio and will soon unleash new tunes upon the unsuspecting public.
