July 10 — ST. PAUL DE VENCE

Driven by a love of strong harmonies, varied instrumentation, and a narrative at once adventurous and relatable, the band continues to explore sonic landscapes, bringing a great dynamic with them from the record to the stage. Having built their sound — and indeed their entire experience — organically, they continue to find themselves in inspiring performance opportunities ranging from festivals to living rooms, clubs to private events. At the heart of the process is the never ending re-discovery of the human condition. St. Paul de Vence is celebrating a new record in 2019!

July 17 — BACKSTREET JELLYROLL

Backstreet Jellyroll, the music of Van Morrison, is a celebration of the powerful music from one of the most revered and significant songwriters of the rock era. Covering over five decades of hits, this 11- piece band delivers music that ranges from a whisper to a roar, with a voice that is simultaneously gruff and ethereal.

July 24 — DUSTY 45S

The Dusty 45s have inspired and fired up crowds for over two decades to the delight of fans and critics alike. With their signature style and unique sound, the band is a consistently powerful and energetic player in the Americana field. Led by charismatic singer/songwriter, guitarist and trumpeter Billy Joe Huels, the raucous band tears through Huels’ original songs that draw inspiration from the roots of rock, rhythm and blues, honkytonk and jazz.

July 31 — LEROY BELL

LeRoy Bell is an American singer and songwriter. He and his friend Casey James played in Special Blend, and then went on to form their own duo Bell and James, also composing songs that were hits for other artists, most notably two charting hit singles for Elton John. LeRoy Bell also formed his band Only Friends as LeRoy Bell and His Only Friends, featuring Terry Morgan on bass, Davis Martin on drums, and Daniel Walker on guitar and keyboards. All are experienced musicians. Morgan had played with Dee Daniels, Pat Wright & The Total Experience Gospel Choir, Dave Lewis, Thelma Houston and others, whereas Martin was previously a member of the band Maktub.

August 7 — NEARLY DAN

Seattle-based Nearly Dan fuses together the chops of 12 diversely-talented artists (with backgrounds in jazz, rock, R&B, country, and swing) into a veritable butcher’s shop window of precisely cut bass lines; surgical, highly reminiscent guitar solos; a biting yet sophisticated horn section and richly marbled beats. Nearly Dan’s recipes avoid over-earnest adulation, coolly presenting Steely Dan’s Burroughsian black humor and notoriously perfectionist musicianship. Mixed with their own arrangements of those masterpiece compositions, the result is pure ambrosia.

August 14 — NATE BOTSFORD

Portland-based artist Nate Botsford’s country rock hybrid is a lifetime in the making. Nate’s career has seen up to 300 shows a year for the last five years; from coffeehouses to mainstages, and has shared the stage with the likes of Old Dominion, Lonestar, Needtobreathe, and calls upon his influences of Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and his big-band pianist grandfather while crafting his music. His songs have received regular rotation radio play and won numerous awards. Come ready to have a good time; Nate and his band bring the party!
