T10847522_10153802398144460_7896260625911215714_oISHAMINGOAthens GA – A rare performance from one of the Best Damn Rock n’ Roll outfits to EVER come out of Athens GA featuring both Jesse Franklin (Brantley Gilbert) and Cameron Williams on guitar. Imagine The Allman Bros meet Widespread Panic. You get the picture!

The Steepwater Band is Chicago’s finest Rock n’ Roll Band! PERIOD! Imagine The Black Crowes meets Led Zeppelin with a hint of Rolling Stones and John Lee Hooker! These guys play Rock n’ Roll the way it was meant to be played! .

The Selwyn Birchwood Band is band the Blues World is a Buzz with!!! Selwyn not only WON the Int’l Blues Challenge in 2013 but also took home the prestigious Albert King Award for Best Guitarist at The Challenge! He was signed to Alligator Records in 2014 and is currently a nominee for “Best NEW Artist debut for his new release, “Don’t Call No Ambulance” for The upcoming 2015 Blues Music Awards to be held in Memphis in May!

Simplified has been known as “Charlotte’s Best Band” for the past 6-8 years and has the Hardware to Prove it! While being a mainstay on the Charlotte Music Scene they have branched out across the Country as well as The High Seas to bring their brand of “Island Rock” to the masses. In the past few years they have played on The Rock Boat, Train’s Sail Across The Sun Cruise, been featured on ESPN, ABC-TV as well as numerous local and regional TV and Radio Shows. They have appeared as support for Blues Traveler, O.A.R., Sister Hazel, and many more as well as headlined events such as The NASCAR Nationwide Series Awards Banquet, played at Carolina Panther Games, Charlotte Hornets games, Colorado Rockies games and numerous NASCAR Races!

John Nemeth, based in Memphis, TN may be THE HOTTEST Soul/Blues Artist on the planet! in 2013, He was named Soul/Blues Artist of the Year at The Blues Music Awards! He is currently nominated for a RECORD 6 Awards for the 2015 Blues Music Awards to be held in Memphis in May of this year! His latest CD, “Memphis Grease” has been the talk of The Soul World all year long and in our opinion, as well as many other music experts, should have been nominated for a Grammy. He has been called the “Best White vocalist of his time!”

Houston native, Hadden Sayers is no stranger to Charlotte music fans. He has been playing Charlotte for the better part of the last 20 years. His killer Fender Tone and, mature songwriting and vocals have made him a fan favorite over the years. It also landed him a job with Grammy Nominated, multi-talented Ruthie Foster as her lead guitarist. These days Hadden spends his time splitting time on the road with Ruthie’s band and Fronting his own Band. Hadden is a long time favorite of the Intrepid Office! A Major Talent!

For the past decade or so, Nick Schnebelen has been the Lead Guitarist, Co-Vocalist and majority songwriter for the award winning Family Blues Band, Trampled Under Foot! He WON the prestigious Albert King Award for his Guitar playing in 2008 and has been a popular figure on the Blues and Roots scene ever since! This year, Nick is breaking away from Trampled Under Foot to set out on his own playing his style of Rockin’ Blues and Roots type music!!!
