"Rock & Soul music is very important to a lot of people. Of course it's entertainment and is fun, but the personal connection that people have to timeless songs is very intense - that's what makes it timeless! Much of the fun in what we do is seeing people singing along, pumping their fists, or just smiling from ear to ear when we launch into a song that has that personal connection for them, or evokes a great memory - whether it was last week, last summer, or years ago. The magic moments are when a whole audience connects to a song and you can tell we're all connecting to a special time in our lives."

Primary Colors: Wednesday, June 20th @ 6:00pm
Music for music lovers...
That is the mission of vocal story-teller, Nate Pruitt, and guitarist, Rick Vandivier.
They magically combine southern soul and classic jazz styles with the grooves and blues – performing their originals and favorites from Jimmie Davis and Nat King Cole to Al Green and Marvin Gaye. Their treatments are so unique that you feel you are hearing even classic songs for the first time. While they impress hard-core jazz lovers, they tap into the souls of anyone who loves the great vibes and surprises that come with every jam session.
Lisa Lindsey: Thursday, June 21st @ 6:00pm
She has been called a glass of champagne, cool, refreshing, and a little bubbly.
Lisa Lindsley may be a latecomer to singing jazz, but the wealth of creative experience she brings to American Songbook gems turns familiar tunes into bracingly contemporary tales. She made an impressive debut with Everytime We Say Goodbye; her 2016 release, Long After Midnight, charted for three weeks on the U.S. FMQB Top 40, and remained in the Top 5 slot for 7 weeks on the CMJ Jazz charts. And now Wouldn't It Be Loverly sits at #27 on the FMQB charts! Let's make it climb.
“A truly sultry singer who captures the evening mood with gusto, Lisa Lindsley casts a musical spell on Long After Midnight, voicing beautiful love songs from the city for lovers, for the lover in all of us.”
Johnny Neri Band: Friday, June 22nd @ 7:00pm
JOHNNY NERI BAND is a five piece high energy Classic Rock and R&B party band that pays tribute to the greatest Rock and Roll hits ever. They perform popular, vintage, classic rock songs from the 60s through the 90s. Since its inception in 2010, The Johnny Neri Band has rapidly grown in popularity after exploding on the music scene. Incredible four-part harmony from amazing musicians who each play many instruments.
Legally Blue: Saturday, June 23rd @ 7:00pm
We love the blues, and we try to keep it authentic and solid. If you like your blues straight-ahead, with maybe a dash of jazz, and you like the classic Hammond B3 and vintage guitar tones...we think you'll dig what we do.
The Funtouchables: Sunday, June 24th @ 2:00pm
