July 9-10 Wheeland Brothers


band's site

While Southern California hums with traffic and nightlife, we're the guys kicking back around a cozy little beachfire on some empty stretch of beach you didn't know was there, cerveza in hand, lifting a toast to the California coast and jamming out homemade songs inspired by waves, hangin' with friends, and dreaming of distant shores. The Wheeland Brothers (or "Bruddahs" for some of you) are a four-piece band from Orange County. We like to call our music Beach Rock Reggae. Basically, if you love the beach, you'll love our sound.

July 14-15 CHERUB


band's site

In October of 2010, Jordan Kelley sent an email to Jason Huber containing seven songs written and produced by Jordan and recorded by Nick Curtis at The Stu in Nashville, TN. Jason and Jordan started performing the songs live as a duo and Cherub was formed. After about a year of small tours and shows, the band had the opportunity to release its first record with the help of a small independent record label. Cherub released Man of the Hour, a collection of those original seven songs and a “pre-side” from the MoM & DaD sessions in September of 2011 with the help of friends at Elm and Oak Records. Distribution of the record was limited to a few digital outlets and viral sharing of music between friends. We are very excited to re-release Man of the Hour with our label Columbia Records.

July 19 : G Love Solo Set


band's site

Twenty years after the release of their self-titled debut and eight years since their last live performance together, the original lineup of G. Love & Special Sauce return with their first album in nearly a decade. Built on the trio’s signature hip-hop blues sound, Sugar finds vocalist/guitarist/harmonica player G. Love (aka Garrett Dutton), upright bassist James “Jimi Jazz” Prescott, and drummer Jeffrey “The Houseman” Clemens breathing new life into their groove-heavy, Chicago-blues-infused brand of stripped-down rock & roll. “The goal for the album was to make it really raw and immediate, with live takes and live vocals and everybody playing so that it all comes together in that intangible way,” says G. Love. “That’s what our music is all about.” Recorded mainly at Brushfire Records’ “Solar Powered Plastic Plant” studio in Los Angeles, Sugar captures the unstoppable energy of a band who got their start in Boston bars in the early ‘90s and still play up to 150 shows a year.

July 21-22 Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue


band's site

New Orleans native Trombone Shorty is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a hard-edged funk band that employs hip-hop beats, rock dynamics and improvisation in a jazz tradition.

Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the tender age of six, and toured internationally for the first time at age 12 before joining Lenny Kravitz' horn section at the age of 19 for a 105-date world tour in 2005-2006. His third outing for Verve Records, "Say That To Say This," co-produced by Shorty and R&B titan Raphael Saadiq, was released in September 2013.

July 23-24-25 Dalton and the Sheriffs


band's site

Call it Boston country. Call it accidental country. Call it what you will. Dalton and the Sheriffs is a band from Boston, Mass. that believes that the line between three-chords-and-the-truth and down-home, country honesty has blurred beyond the point of distinction. 2012 was a breakout year for Dalton and the Sheriffs. The band played over 130 shows throughout New England, opening for national artists such as Eve 6, Craig Campbell, John Pardi, and Easton Corbin. Dalton and the Sheriffs believes there is a place in New England -- and beyond, for that matter -- for a band that speaks the truth in resonant tones, accented by the twang of a Telecaster, about life in Boston. Real life -- love and loss, success and failure, heartbreak and heartache. Not as a gimmick, but as a matter of course, as a matter of necessity.

July 28-29: Badfish
