VINCE JOHNSON & THE PLANTATION ALLSTARS

His rich, entrancing harp playing and smooth voice, saturated with unfeigned feeling, bring the true meaning of the blues to anyone who hears him play. Vince leads his Memphis/New York City based band Plantation Allstars, taking the sound of the blues to a new and different level.

10/17/15: MALINA MOYE
Flipping a Fender Stratocaster upside-down, acclaimed singer/songwriter/lefty guitarist Malina Moye fills a void in the entertainment industry. Described as a musical pioneer and regarded as one of the world’s top female guitarists by Guitar World Magazine, Moye has carved out her own lane in today’s music scene as one of the few artists in history able to straddle both Rock and Soul genres. Moye’s musical narrative boasts an impressive resume that includes making history as the first African-American woman to play the National Anthem on guitar at a professional sporting event, all the way to performing at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame tribute concert for music pioneer Chuck Berry. In 2012, Malina was the first female guitarist to join the Experience Hendrix Tour and appeared in the documentary “Stratmaster: The Greatest Guitar Story Ever Told.”

10/23/15: VICTOR WAINWRIGHT
Though his career began over a decade ago with genuine rock n' roll honky-tonk, Wainwright has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the blues. His insatiable interest in music discovery, sheer love for entertaining and curiosity have led him all around the world, and the resulting perspective is a reflection of his passion for entertaining and creating progressive roots music in an effort to move the art form forward. Composer, producer, vocalist, entertainer and award winning piano player; Victor Wainwright is a raucous high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd pleasure with soul to spare.
"Victor Wainwright, winner of this year’s and last year's Pine Top Perkins Piano Player Award at the BMA’s, is a force to be reckoned with on a piano. He IS honky-tonk and boogie, with a dose of rolling thunder. Wainwright’s playing is simply beautiful madness." - American Blues Scene 2013
