Left Lane Cruiser
This whiskey fueled two-man frenzy of blues-driven rock’n’roll noise straight from Fort Wayne, Indiana promise to hit you like a shock wave and show you a foot-stompin’ good time. Left Lane Cruiser is comprised of Joe Evans on slide guitar and vocals with Brenn Beck on one big-ass bass drum, harmonica and a toolbox full of percussive gear. The raw blues duo of LLC have practiced through thick and thin to hone a sound unlike any other and have been together long enough to have previously released a couple of self-produced EPs. “Let your soul drive what you do” is the premise of their music, “give it all you got, and everything is an instrument: trash cans, paint trays, hubcaps, ladders, you name it.”
Minneapolis-based Fret Rattles have been around the rock and roll block and feature ex members of Thee Viceroys, Dirty Robbers, F Knights, Six Six Crush, and many more over the past 25+ years. With that history in their back pocket the Fret Rattles bring their own approach to the sounds of late 60’s Detroit (MC5, Stooges), 70’s punk rock (Radio Birdman, Sonics Rendezvous Band) and the 90’s underground rock revival (Hellacopters, Dragons). The final result is straight-forward rock-n-roll that is not retro but instead alive, fresh and more relevant sounding than ever!
Badwater Sound is a Chicago based Americana Rock’n’Roll and Punk’n’Soul band for misfits, givers, takers, leaners, and shakers, for dancing, deliberating, fornicating, and burning things down.
VOLK is the dynamic duo that roars with a mix of high-octane Rock n Roll, classic Country swagger, and heart-shattering Soul. After cutting their teeth in the dim-lit bars of Europe, VOLK decided to take their music home to the US in Spring 2016. Since settling down in Nashville, VOLK has opened for such acts as Royal Thunder, Diarrhea Planet, Mayeux and Broussard, The Ghost Wolves, Brother Oh Brother, catl, and John Evans.
