Sugar Ray: The Southern California-based band's last album "MUSIC FOR COUGARS," an exuberant reiteration of the band's signature sound, with particular focus on songcraft and sonic invention. As ever, musical styles –from dancehall to disco, punk to pure pop – are mixed and matched, resulting in a celebratory, swaggering collection that is distinctively and delightfully Sugar Ray. Songs like the buoyant first single, "Boardwalk," or the Rivers Cuomo-penned "Love Is the Answer" are fit to burst with the wit and energy that once saw the band rule over the Top 10. "MUSIC FOR COUGARS" sees this band of brothers operating at the very peak of its powers, with the skills, strengths, and smarts that only two decades together can provide.


Nitty Gritty Dirt Band:
 The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music, continues to add to their legendary status. With multi-platinum and gold records, strings of top ten hits such as "Fishin' In The Dark" and "Mr. Bojangles", multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA Awards and nominations, the band's accolades continue to accumulate. Their groundbreaking "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame. NGDB's recording of "Mr. Bojangles" was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010. NGDB (Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, John McEuen) are touring in support of their most recent release, the critically acclaimed album "Speed of Life" (2009, SugarHill Records) with recent tour stops at Bonnaroo and Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble.

 

Blue Oyster Cult: For nearly four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY--‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster

Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

 

Gloriana: Gloriana is a country group composed of brothers Tom and Mike Gossin, and Rachel Reinert. These three lifelong musicians joined together in 2008 and quickly discovered a true bond and shared passion for crafting songs that featured soaring vocal harmonies. The band's breakthrough self-titled album, which featured the hit single "Wild At Heart," earned the group the American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist in 2009 and the coveted ACM Award for Top New Vocal Group in 2010. Their new sophomore album, A Thousand Miles Left Behind, was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer and songwriter Matt Serletic and debuted #2 on the Billboard Country Album Chart. "(Kissed You) Good Night," the album's first single, became a stand-out hit and was the most played song by a group at Country Radio in 2012. Gloriana's latest single, "Can't Shake You," is quickly climbing the radio charts and the trio recently kicked off a year-long nationwide tour.
