ABRAXAS • The Santana Experience formed in March of 2006 with one goal, to be the best. Fast forward to 2013, having performed scores of shows for thousands of fans from coast to coast, the members of Abraxas have honed their show to be not just a musical tribute to the legendary Carlos Santana, but an experience that you’ll remember for a long time to come.

It’s all there. The propulsive Latin percussion… the fiery lead guitar work… the keyboard wizardry… the lush vocals… the goove that connects to the soul of the audience. No matter the type event or size of venue, Abraxas is ready. We’ve opened concerts for major artists and have headlined shows all across America.

TheBallroomThieves_main

With a slow, deliberate build, the Ballroom Thieves make their presence known onstage immediately as the first chord is struck, transforming any size room, whether it be a large ballroom or a small club, into a remarkably intimate environment.

Formed in 2011, the Ballroom Thieves take the sincere, narrative blueprint of folk music and infuse it with the attitude of rock, the soul of blues, and the sweat and fervor of a revival tent. That spirit makes its way into both their recorded music as well as their live performances, as Martin Earley (guitar, vocals), Devin Mauch (percussion, vocals), and Calin Peters (cello, vocals) attack their instruments and harmonies with the same energy onstage as in the studio.

Garnering regional and national acclaim for both of their releases to date, 2012’s The Devil And The Deep, and 2013’s self-titled EP, the Thieves have been branching out from their native Boston. Their energy, passion, and songwriting craft earning them national touring spots with established bands such as the Lone Bellow, Dispatch, Little Green Cars, the Wheeler Brothers, and Houndmouth, among others.

Folk Hogan:

http://www.folkhogan.com/

Folk Hogan is a high velocity, folk/punk band with a lively stage show that is widely appealing, and downright awesome. The six-piece lineup consists of Accordion, Mandolin, Bass, Banjo, Guitar, and Drums. Folk Hogan brings a mix of experienced entertainers, humor, and whiskey that will keep a crowd dancing while wishing they had a backup liver.
