Southern Fried Sunday w/ Kaleigh Baker & the Za Boo Zays

Kaleigh Baker

“Among the many gifts given with both hands to formerly local, currently New York-prowling singer-songwriter Kaleigh Baker – aside from that Swiss Army knife of a voice – is her innate grasp of momentum. On her new EP, The Weight of It All, Baker and producer Justin Beckler play the puppet masters, building suspense without ever seeming coy about it. Baker is capable of communicating volumes with a simple vocal lilt, and on the moments in which her register nose-dives headfirst into the emotional muck (“Sugardaddy”) or propels like a jet into the stratosphere (“Love Letter to a Burning Man”), she never fails to rouse the senses.” ” The Weight of It All is the roar of a soulful lioness and will go a long way toward proving to the world what Orlando’s known for a long time: Kaleigh Baker is a legend in the making.” – Justin Strout, Orlando Weekly

She takes another hit of whiskey and heads out with her band, a star sextet she's amassed from members of local jazz crew Swing in Time and Sam Rivers' Rivbea Orchestra. And then, she goes nearly deaf.

"I couldn't hear anything. I was in some weird zone," says Baker.

What happens after that moment is entirely unpredictable and nearly magical. With impeccable swagger, vocal chops as playful as Diane Schuur with a Patti Smith bent and backing musicians telekinetically linked to Baker's every whim, she shrugs off the jitters and brings the house down. Behind the enraptured masses and off to the side sits Baker's benefactor, Alexandra Sarton, that inescapable invisible hand of Orlando's female music scene, grinning knowingly and nodding her head.

Hannah Harber and Friends

New Orleans transplant now Orlando Folk/Americana Singer, Songwriter, guitarist Hannah Harber draws her inspiration from artists such as Patty Griffin, Susan Tedeschi, Gillian Welch, The Avett Brothers, Robert Plant, Townes Van Zandt and The Civil Wars as well as anyone who has ever crafted a story and conveyed it with emotion. In early 2013 Hannah Harber released a 7 song EP entitled Be Free which showcased her honey smooth yet subtly smokey voice and her ability to write a song that can transport the listener to a dusty street in an old town, a lonely night time down pour, the breaking free point of a relationship, to how it feels to be haunted by a past you can't break away from.

Gators in the Sawgrass

Gators in the Sawgrass is an ensemble of dedicated musicians based out of Gulfport, Florida. While each of the Gators is inspired by a multitude of genres, ranging from punk to classical, their mutual love of bluegrass has drawn them together. The Gators have one mission, to bring music lovers together and make them dance. So, if you hear a faint "Gators, assemble" in the distance at a show, prepare yourself for a great time.
