2014 Music Lineup
- Jazz Manic featuring Chris West
Born and raised in Nashville, TN, Chris’s interest in music started at a very young age. Having inherited his father’s acoustic guitar, and a small Casio keyboard, Chris started experimenting with music as far back as he can remember. “I use to try and figure out as many melodies on the guitar as possible, and then when I discovered chords, it was a whole new ballgame!” Chris would try and get his hands on any musical instrument he could find and figure out how to play it. Chris decided to polish his talents in music on the saxophone after playing trumpet for two years in the school band. “I knew that’s the instrument I wanted to play before I even knew what it was called”
- Roux du Bayou
Roux du Bayou Cajun Band plays authentic cajun, zydeco,swamp pop, mardi gras music. The band can also incorporate some select style music from Oldies, Rock n Roll, R&B and vintage country.
- Deep Fried Five
Out of their hometown of Nashville, TN- Deep Fried 5 has been making funky, soulful music exploding with groove and attitude since 2008 & haven’t looked back since. With original tracks, reminiscent of 60s and 70s funk and soul, the music takes you back to when it was pure… “These dudes have moved to the top of the chart in our heart with a sound that finds the more commercial aspects of late-’70s soul — you know, when it was bumping uglies with the beast that was about to become disco.” -Sean Maloney of the Nashville Scene. The group continues to grow and expand, pushing the envelope of a new progressive funk sound that has undertones of jazz, rock, soul, r&b, and blues; winning the affection of all different genres of music fans.
