2014 Music Schedule

Fat Box

Fat Box plays a unique blend of Rock, Funk, Blues, and Jazz. They occasionally venture into the avant-garde but never lose sight of the groove. Their music features distinct, soulful vocals, fiery improvisations, and songs that don't conform to predictable formulas. Fat Box is best seen and heard live.


A story-telling band obsessed with pop songs who search for that ultimate musical and lyrical hook that will stick in your head long after the music is over.  Like the Pettys and Dylans of old to the Rooneys and The Frays of now, The Decadence is telling their tale through music.  The give their all each and every night on stage and don't stop until the lights go up.  They're a show that sparks attention and will have you singing along before you know it.  You don't just "watch" The Decadence perform, you experience it.

Bawn in the Mash

Bawn in the Mash is an American musical group, established December 2004 in Paducah, Kentucky. Known for their unique and eclectic performances, the band "bridge the rarely traversed gap between bluegrass and rock and roll with the effortlessness of careful students of both." (D. Patrick Rodgers, The Nashville Scene)

Gideon's Rifle

This Kentucky ensemble formed last spring and plies a blend of Americana, newgrass and folk music that is bouncing, mournful or stealthy, depending on the number. Gideon's Rifle is led by co-songwriting team Alexander Coltharp (banjo) and Shannon Vetter (acoustic guitar), their lower-register vocal timbres complementing the clear soaring soprano of mandolin gal Kimberly McDaniel, and their strums and picks supported by the lowend foundation of upright bassist Jake Siener and wailing melodies of cellist Byron Farrar.

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra

Jonathan Scales Fourchestra is an example of musical sincerity. Weaving together collective and individual influences without compromise, they are as much themselves as they are a unit—a crucial trait of landmark instrumental ensembles. Equally captivating is steel pannist and founder Jonathan Scales' compositional skill as is his tasteful, avant-garde improvisational approach. Driftwood Magazine says "Scales is to steel pans ....what Bela Fleck is to the banjo—an uber innovator."

Leonard the Band

We have many artistic influences such as; Neil Young, Bob Marley, Television, Wiico, The Band, Spoon, and Bob Dylan, can be heard within our work. The sound is completely owned by the band and the members contributions and styles are distinct and groovy. It's held strong by Brian's poetic lyrics and unorthodox chord progressions, Adam's liquid blues/jazz bass lines, Tootie's progressive and precise percussion and Zack's alternative stoner rock/jazz organ/piano.

Lew Jetton & 61 South

Funk and Jazz elements pour out of Brad Hammack (Bass), while the electric edge is crafted by Foster Stacy (Synthesizer and Percussion), finished with a large load on the shoulders of metal styling Alex Riley (Rhythm Guitar).
