John Oates and the Good Road Band
John Oates is one half of the best-selling duo of all time, Hall & Oates, as well as an accomplished solo artist. Daryl Hall & John Oates have gone on to record 21 albums, which have sold over 80 million units, making them the most successful duo in rock history. They have scored 10 number one records, over 20 Top 40 hits, and have toured the world for decades. Since embarking on a long awaited solo career in 1999, John has recorded five solo albums.
Tyminski, a Rutland, Vermont native, is a 14-time Grammy Award-winner and one of the premiere vocalists in modern acoustic music. He is a 25-year member of Alison Krauss' Union Station and the singing voice of George Clooney's character in the film "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou." He recently made his solo debut on late-night TV on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," singing the title track to his album "Southern Gothic."
Hiatt is a fixture of Nashville's indie scene. It's no surprise that John Hiatt's daughter has a knack for rootsy sounds and smart, unpretentious songs. Hiatt's latest album "Trinity Lane" is a honest set of personal truths; a collection of songs that take stock of where she's been, where she's going and the challenges she's weathered to get there. "Nashville Scene" likens the album's sound to "something akin to Berlin-period Bowie filtered through Tom Petty."

Danny Barnes is already known as an iconic American musician, a banjo playing innovator who’s earned high praise from everybody from Bill Frisell and Dave Matthews to Steve Martin, who presented Danny with the Prize for Excellence in Banjo in 2015. From the days with his groundbreaking Austin band, the Bad Livers, to his two decade solo career experimenting with electronic music, jazz, old time string band music and more, he’s a genre bending, rule breaking original who prefers to color outside the lines.
Energetic and loud.
