Monster Mike Welch in Concert
Monster Mike Welch is one of the East Coast's best-loved blues guitarists and, at 33 years old, already a twenty-year veteran of the international blues scene. As frontman or as the guitarist for New England blues legends Sugar Ray and the Bluetones, Mike has toured North America and Europe, and made several acclaimed recordings. As a precocious 11-year-old he was invited to join local blues jams, working alongside Ronnie Earl, Luther "Guitar Jr" Johnson, Matt Murphy and Johnny Copeland. At 13, Mike Welch opened the bill at the Cambridge House of Blues, sharing a stage with Junior Wells, Joe Walsh and actor Dan Aykroyd. It was the latter who gave him his nickname, "Monster Mike." By the time he released his first CD three years later (These Blues Are Mine / Tone-Cool), he had already played with blues legends like Junior Wells, James Cotton, and Johnny Copeland, and won the 1995 Boston Music Award for Best Blues Act. The rest of the 90's found Mike touring North America and Europe, and featured in USA Today, People, Entertainment Tonight, CNN, and NPR. In 2001, Mike joined his longtime heroes Sugar Ray & The Bluetones, establishing a deep creative partnership in the blues that continues to this day. Their 2011 recording Evening garnered five Blues Music Award nominations, including Album of the Year and Blues Band of the Year. Mike's varied career has seen him lauded as a teen virtuoso, valued as a supportive sideman, and respected as a maturing blues artist. Recent years have found Mike dividing his time between Sugar Ray & The Bluetones, guest stints (Duke Robillard, Nick Moss, Johnny Winter, Darrell Nulisch and more) and his own work in the international blues scene.

Brooks Williams In Concert
Ranked one of the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, singer-songwriter Brooks Williams writes groove-laden songs and delivers them with an easy-going vocal style and monstrous guitar chops. Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales. With nearly 20 CDs to his name and more on the way this Statesboro Georgia native is, according to americanaUK, "impossible not to like." "I've known Brooks for many years. He's a lovely player, a lovely singer, and a great writer and a lovely man. The real thing" (Martin Simpson)

Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters
"Amy's voice hits you like a refreshing warm breeze, her perfect diction and crystal clear tone seemingly effortless and at the same time passionate. Her unique voice is as warm as her personality, and perfectly suited to bluegrass, country, as well as any style she cares to sing." --British Bluegrass News In my humble opinion, Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters rate right up there with the best of the best. Amy has a wonderfully expressive voice, a lively stage presence, and the band is absolutely first-rate. Resophonic guitarist Roger Williams is a master of his instrument, and his son, JD Williams, plays mandolin as well as any of the young firebrand musicians now attracting national attention. I highly recommend Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters to any venue owner, concert or festival promoter; and to any music fan who enjoys a top-quality concert experience. Larry Hoyt - host of Common Threads - WAER - Syracuse
