Bobby Thompson & Friends featuring Ron Holloway

Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist Bobby Thompson is no stranger to the blues and rock world. He cut his teeth learning to play in the old blues clubs of D.C. from the likes of Bobby Parker. After honing his craft as a much sought after support man, Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing three albums since 2011. A recent review from Roots Music Report claims Thompson’s songs portray "muscular blues- and soul-rock strong on soulful vocals and cut-above-the-norm originals." With his smooth, gripping vocal stylings and his perfect musical taste on anything with a string, Thompson is what’s referred to as a “musician’s musician. Considered a “must see” act of the Northeast region, Bobby was nominated for the D.C area Musician of the Year award in 2015.

Lauren Calve Band

Virginia native Lauren Calve is a singer-songwriter based in Washington, D.C. Steeped in American roots music, Calve's songs are by turns anthemic and poetic as they move between rousing blues-rock, sweeping folk-driven numbers, and delicate balladry. Her multifaceted vocal style takes inspiration from such powerful female singers as Patty Griffin, Bonnie Raitt, and Emmylou Harris, to which she adds an instrumental line-up of resonator guitar, electric slide guitar, acoustic bass, and drums. She is currently recording her first EP--set to be released Fall 2013--and is sure to bring a vital new energy to the East Coast's Americana scene.
