JUNE 14 - BEN MILLER BAND: https://www.facebook.com/benmillerband/
The Ben Miller Band is an American band that was formed in 2005 in Joplin, Missouri. The band's lineup currently consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Ben Miller, bassist (playing a homemade one-string washtub bass), drummer, and back-up vocalist, Scott Leeper, lead/back-up vocalist, violinist/cellist, guitarist, and electric-cactus player, Rachel Ammons, and guitarist/bassist/percussionist, Bob Lewis. The Ben Miller Band combines elements of folk, blues, bluegrass and country into their music. Originally, The Ben Miller Band's sound had been self-described by the band as "Ozark Stomp" but in reference to their label, is now referred to as "Mudstomp."
The Empty Pockets' is a surprising yet familiar blend of Folksy Rock ‘n Roll and Midwestern Soul.
“Polished yet rootsy Chicago outfit Empty Pockets” (Rolling Stone) showcases multiple lead singers, rich harmonies, skilled instrumentalists, and an old-school sensibility built on Americana, Blues and Soul.
"Because when The Empty Pockets play, they don’t just go through the motions of belting out tunes and revving their guitars to impress you – their performances are offset with a vibrancy and a sort of energetic showmanship so that space and distance don’t matter in the end – rather it’s more of which of their carefully crafted songs will strike a chord within you first."

The Mighty Pines are a fierce roots band making music inspired by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. For the last five years they’ve been fashioning their distinctive heartland sound. The music is fresh: bluegrass meets acoustic soul and rock & roll. With their genre bending original songs the band bridges the gap between groove and grass, between country and funk, between blues and folk. The music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed, with soaring harmonies keeping it sweet through every song.
The Pines formed in 2012 and since have released three albums, played hundreds of live shows and shared bills with such renowned acts as Greensky Bluegrass, Sam Bush, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Fruition, and many more in bars and concert halls across the country. This is a band that can rage a late night festival show or captivate an intimate listening room crowd. Their latest release, Lonesome Blues, establishes The Mighty Pines as a young, exciting force in grass-roots music--but there’s only way to truly experience this dynamic quartet: see them live.
NBC’s The Voice finalist Barrett Baber gave millions of viewers an unforgettable introduction to a rising new artist and entertainer on the country music scene. Blake Shelton says, "Barrett sounds like no one else on country radio. He can be a star in country music.” On the heals of a successful US tour, Baber’s recently released full-length album A Room Full Of Fighters debuted in the top 10 on iTunes Top 100 Album Charts, and will be featured in Walmarts nationwide as part of Coca-Cola's summer campaign for 2017.
