2023 LineUp

Tommy Castro

Beloved soul-blues rocker Tommy Castro fearlessly remains true to himself, creating 16 albums that range from horn-fueled R&B to fiery rock ‘n’ roll, all driven by his captivating vocals and passionate guitar work, earning him unwavering praise.

King Solomon Hicks

Immersed in music from a young age, Hicks was influenced by the vibrant music scene of Harlem, where his parents constantly played music at home and took him to local nightspots like the Lennox Lounge and the Cotton Club. This ignited his desire to become a skilled and versatile guitarist who draws upon a wealth of musical knowledge and riffs rather than focusing solely on speed.

Joslyn & The Sweet Compression

Joslyn & The Sweet Compression (Isaac Stephens – guitar, Smith Donaldson – bass, Rashawn Fleming – drums, Trevin Little – saxophone, and Sam Richardson – Keyboard) combine to deliver a hook-filled mix of funk and soul.

Gabe Stillman

The Gabe Stillman Band is a high-energy three-piece rooted in the blues but drawing inspiration from a wide range of American roots music, Their notable achievements include reaching the final eight out of 101 entries at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, where Gabe’s guitar prowess earned him the prestigious Gibson Guitar Award and recognition from the Blues Foundation.
