Description: The Motet began in 1998 in Denver, CO where the band’s then-rotating cast of musicians amassed an enthusiastic and loyal throng of hometown fans. The Motet took their infectious dance parties on the road about three years ago, and their national fan base has been growing exponentially ever since.

Date: Thursday, March 23

Artist:  Davy Knowles

Venue: The Yard

Time: 8:00 p.m.

Cost: FREE

Description: The journey for renowned modern day bluesman, Davy Knowles began growing up in the Isle of Man, learning to play guitar from listening to the likes of Clapton, Knopfler, Green and Marall in his father’s record collection, and honing his skills playing the local music circuit.  Knowles’ professional career started with a bang – arriving in America at age 19 with his band Back Door Slam and an acclaimed debut album with rave reviews at SXSW 2007.  From that dynamic introduction, Knowles proceeded to make a significant impact across U.S. media – from memorable television performances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “Good Morning America”, to a three year run at radio with the singles “Come Home” and “Tear Down the Walls.”

Date: Friday, March 24

Artist: Dumpstaphunk

Venue: The Yard

Time: 8:00 p.m.

Cost: FREE

Description: Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans’ best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville’s funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like “Dancin’ To The Truth” off their latest record, Dirty Word (Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.

Date: Friday, March 31

Time: 4 – 6 p.m.

Artist: Trent Tomlinson - RPM Entertainment Showcase

Venue: The Birdie Bar

Cost: FREE

Description: In his junior year of high school, singer-songwriter Trent Tomlinson reached second place on the television talent show “You Can Be a Star.” Influenced by the outlaw country movement, including Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, Tomlinson brings a more modern approach to the country sound which helped him top the charts with releases including the album Country is My Rock. The album produced three Top 40 singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts: “Drunker Than Me” at No. 19, “One Wing in the Fire” at No. 11 and “Just Might Have Her Radio On” at No. 21. Tomlinson released his single “Man Without a Woman” in 2011, but did not release an album despite the single charting. Tomlinson currently has a publishing deal with Mucho Love Music, and in October 2016 released That's What's Working Right Now. As an artist, he found great success with the first single “When She Goes There,” and as a writer, his song for Brett Young “In Case You Didn’t Know” is currently climbing the country charts.

Date: Saturday, April 15

Artist: Jelly Bread

Venue: The Yard

Time: 8 p.m.

Cost: FREE

Description: Over a few short years of touring, Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a nationally touring, powerhouse quintet that delivers a high energy, chameleonic playlist all over the U.S. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in the pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talk box, “take ‘em to church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.

Date: Friday, May 12

Artist: Doin’ Time

Venue: The Yard

Time: 8 p.m.

Description: Doin’ Time is the premier tribute band to Sublime. Long Beach-based, Chris Martin sings and plays guitar with the sounds and vibes of Sublime with Scott Taylor on bass deep grooving and scaling down the neck Sublime style, while Mike Gray lays down the beat with his scuffle rock reggae style.
