High Water Drifters | Americana
What happens when four Ohio acoustic musicians assemble a band to perform original and traditional roots music? Well, people dance, clap, and sing, a lot. This is the basis for High Water Drifters. High Water Drifters jam original and traditional tunes with all manner of banjos, washboards, mandolins, fiddle, guitars, upright bass, and a stomp box.
Whisky Driver | Rock
Tim Owings OneManBand | Rock
Tim Owings has been entertaining crowds in and out of Ohio for over 25 years. First in his band Trixx in the 80’s and then in Shock Tu and Nurse Ratched in the 90’s. As the lead singer of these bands Tim developed a reputation as one of Ohio’s best.
He then decided to put together an acoustic act to give him the freedom of doing a more diverse catalog of material. While he is an acoustic act, he has incorporated a drum machine and with his ripping harmonica solos and dynamic vocal range you’ll think you’re listening to a whole band.

Formed in January 2016, Iron Rooster presents a unique blend of music. Take a little bit of Classic/Southern Rock with some Alternative sprinkled with a bit of Progressive/Hard Rock and boom!!! Iron Rooster performs a blend of originals & covers to satisfy all fans of live music. The band is committed to playing a quality live show. Their performances are 100% raw, organic quality musicianship.
Willie Phoenix | Blues Injected Rock
Born in Camden Alabama, Willie says he entered the world “wrapped in a burning southern flag” – referencing his love for the blues. Growing up, he listened to all of the greats. They were all there on the 78/45 rpm records played on his family’s Magnavox record player: Muddy Waters, Lightening Hopkins, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and country greats Hank Williams, Buck Owens and Jerry Reed. Willie remembers thinking the guitars, harmonicas and voices possessed the same echoing, lonely sound as the midnight trains that rumbled past his Marion, Ohio home. It was there, in Marion, where he grew up, went to school and cut his teeth on early British invasion blues and rock n’ roll.
