Check out "Stowed Away"... a YouTube video.

Black Dolly - 6:00 - 8:30 pm
Made up of talented musicians from the Pacific NW, Black Dolly is full of soulful jams and smooth grooves. The BD band is a culmination of several years of development and recording. Started by Chris Newbury and his wife Wendy, the band was really formed by a desire for Chris to give Wendy a recording session for their anniversary. Chris utilized the help of his long time friends and musical collaborators Eddie Ramirez (Israel Houghton, Johnny Ramirez), Frazer Wambeke(Frazer Wambeke Group), Luke Basile (Rainmaker Studios), and Ryan Matzinger (Ike Turner) to record the Dianne Reeves cover of Fleetwood Mac's hit "Dreams". The project was enough of a success that Chris decided to formally pursue an official group.

Vannah Oh! - 1:30 - 3:30 pm
Vanna Oh! is a rock-and-roll queen who blends the brazen and infectious movement of the genre with a modern, feminine twist. Vanna Oh! mixes the American staples--blues, rockabilly, country, and jazz--to pay homage to the last century of rock-and-roll evolution. She uses the electric guitar as a tool of empowerment for a gender left out of much of rock-and-roll history, and wields it deftly to create dynamic rhythms and ear-catching hooks. Her vocals soar from whispers to all-out guttural screams as she calls for social evolution and vocalizes the rock-and-roll story from a feminine point of view.
The Powers - 3:45 - 6:00 pm
We are The Powers and as for songs and style, we are alternative country. We're based out of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and our group has a delightful mix of parts from dynamic harmonies with acoustic guitar to banjos fighting with fiddles! Everything we play finds its way into our style of strong vocal harmony with a folky vibe.
