This queen of blue-eyed rock n’ soul, grew up on the sweetness of Memphis horn lines and raunch of electric guitar riffs. Ready for her life on stage, Christine teased her blonde hair into a beehive, in honor of Ronnie Spector, and never looked back. She’s the current long-time vocalist of the Saturday Night Live Band and her latest album, The Deep End, was honored on five national Top Ten lists.

​​

Christine Ohlman's long list of achievements and accolades includes her induction into the National Blues Hall of Fame, singing on Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, partnering with Elvis Costello for a duet on HBO's Vinyl, and so much more.

Ohlman tours relentlessly with her band Rebel Montez, torching clubs up and down the Eastern Seaboard in support of her recordings: Strip, The Hard Way, Radio Queen, Wicked Time, Re-Hive, The Deep End, Live Hive, and The Grown-Up Thing.

“I’ve come here tonight to set your souls on fire,” she’ll tell an audience. And she will.

Twisted Pine

Twisted Pine is in a league and world of their own design. With a stripped down and lively Blue Grass instrumentation, Kathleen Parks on fiddle and lead vox, Dan Bui on mandolin, Chris Sartori on bass, and Anh Phung on flute, Twisted Pine flows freely and along interlaced lines of pop hooks and rhythms.

 

 With soulfully orchestrated jazz harmonies, they lead us through stellar organic improvisations.

Touring in support of their new album, “Right Now”, Twisted Pine has been described as “boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek and Crooked Still”. (Boston Globe)

“All told, this is far and away one of the best releases you’ll hear this year. (He says, trying to sound restrained when he really wants to say “Good Christ, this is fantastic!”) Is it folk? Is it jazz? Who cares. It’s exceptional. (You can hear the mothership land at the very end, too. Seriously.)”

Houston Bernard’s country roots run deep with a family tree that includes songwriters, touring musicians and an outlaw gunfighter nicknamed “Bitter Creek” who the Eagles referred to on their “Desperado” album. 

Born in Oklahoma and raised in Alaska, Houston is an Army veteran who has comfortably settled into life as a professional and popular country music recording artist, touring throughout the US. Inspired by songwriters from Bruce Springsteen to Dolly Parton, and drawing from his family’s rich country and rockabilly roots, Bernard brings an upbeat style with powerful vocals.

 

His original songs have garnered thousands of streams across Spotify and YouTube and have been featured on country music networks. He has also shared the stage with Marshall Tucker Band, Clint Black, and Old Dominion, to name a few. His new single, “Hangover” produced in Nashville, is becoming a fast-rising hit. 

Backed with his “gunslinging” band, this country cowboy will leave a lasting impression.

Since their 2013 debut record replicating “Old and In the Way”, the seminal acoustic bluegrass album helmed by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman, the Vermont based, Beg Steal or Borrow has gone on to become an award-winning bluegrass band in their own right.

 

Creating an impressive repertoire of original songs that boast both contemporary and archival appeal, they have absorbed the essential influences of Appalachian, folk and country and have refashioned them in a way that is so accessible and infectious that the music is all but irresistible. The impressive pedigree of musicianship should be noted in the who’s who of bluegrass with Jeremy Sicely on guitar, and dobro, Geoff Goodhue on mandolin, Roland Clark, fiddle, Fran Forium bass, and Luke Auriemmo on banjo.

 

Beg Steal or Borrow have shared the stage with star Bluegrass headliners including Vassar Clemens, Tony Rice and up and coming Bluegrass star Billy Strings. Their latest album, “Old Mountain Time” has garnered the attention and respect of old school Bluegrass vets as well as school trained contemporaries.
