JUNE 24th-26th ENTERTAINMENT
June 24th - Cats on Holiday - 6pm
"Cats On Holiday is a hard rockin', swamp poppin' outfit serving up a healthy dose of American influenced roots, country, Cajun and blues. Reigning from the Cuyahoga River Valley on the shores of the great Lake Erie, this band has been pleasing crowds from bar rooms to outdoor festivals and concerts over the last 15 years. Armed with an arsenal of well-crafted original tunes and an eclectic blend of party songs, it's hard for most listeners not to swing and sway. With a constantly full itinerary, it's easy to catch these guys tearing up some bandstand around town.... and it's highly recommended!"
June 25th - Zach - 10am
Zach is the Troubadour of Peace, spreading uplifting music to inspire all across the country for the last 17 years. Named Humanitarian of the Year and Preformer of the Year, he recently released his first book of photography and song lyrics and meditations. His newest release, the Antidote, features his band The Bright Lights.
June 25th - Nate Jones Band - 2pm
The Nate Jones Band is a soulful folk-rock ensemble from Cleveland, OH. No gimmicks; just great songs, powerful lead vocals, and popping harmonies. Nate's voice blends seamlessly from gritty to delicate, with an astonishing range that elicits comparisons to Ray LaMontagne, Don Henley, and a young Elton John. Mixing elements of rock, blues, funk, and Laurel Canyon folk-rock, the Nate Jones Band makes modern music in a decidedly old-fashioned way--with mature lyrics, catchy melodies, and spot-on vocal performances. NJB has shared stages with the likes of Marc Cohn, Tab Benoit, Eric Hutchinson, Houndmouth, Missy Higgins, and the Rebirth Brass Band.
June 26th - Brent Kirby - 10am
( Rock )
Brent Kirby’s been called by many of his peers one of Cleveland’s hardest working musicians and his actions prove that. In 2013, Brent Kirby was voted “Best Singer” and also “Best Male Vocal” by the Cleveland Scene, and 2012, he was voted “Best Musician”. When he is not playing solo or with his band, called His Luck, he writes the tunes and fronts the Jack Fords (2007, 2009 Best Rock Band Cleveland Scene), leads the monthly revival of Gram Parsons with his band The New Soft Shoe, and plays drums for the talented Cleveland holiday band, the Ohio City Singers. His 10 x 3 Songwriter showcase weekly series at Brothers Lounge has created an encouraging, vibrant original music scene.
Brent Kirby & His Luck play homegrown original music from Cleveland, Ohio and released their record “Patience Worth” in 2015. In 2013, Brent Kirby was voted “Best Singer” and also “Best Male Vocal” by the Cleveland Scene, and 2012, he was voted “Best Musician”.
June 26th - The Gage Brothers - 2pm
The Gage Brothers started in March 2014 when two brothers, Ben and Zach Gage, spent a Sunday afternoon kicking around old folk songs and singing some harmonies. From there the group has evolved naturally and quickly, gaining the reputation as one of the hardest working groups in their area. The Gage boys come from a large family nestled in the rural parts of northeast Ohio, and have grown up working hard, making music, eating healthy doses of mama’s cooking and making more music. Writing comes naturally to them both, and you will find that their straightforward lyrics and relatable songs capture their roots and spin tales that all walks of life can make their own.
Recently The Gage Brothers have been able to boast the acquisition of two of Cleveland’s most talented musicians. Brendan O’Malley (mandolin) and Chris Volpe (banjo) have joined forces with Ben and Zach to create The Gage Brothers 2.0. Now a four piece Americana band, they create an energy that draws you in and leaves you wanting more. “I can’t stop stomping my feet and clapping my hands, I tried, can’t do it” says a local kiss-up. Brendan and Chris have become honorary siblings, and the group can’t wait to share their talents and stories with its ever growing crowd.
Welcome to our family.
