Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll Boys
Bio: After landing on Nashville's Lower Broadway in the 90's, Chuck Mead co-founded famed Alternative Country quintet BR549. The band's seven albums, three GRAMMY nominations and CMA Award for Best Overseas Touring Act would build an indelible bridge between authentic American Roots music and millions of fans worldwide.


With the band on hiatus, in 2006 Mead took on the role of Music Director for Million Dollar Quartet, a show which became a Broadway smash and has had extremely successful runs in Seattle, London, Chicago, Las Vegas and Branson. In 2017, the musical was turned into a TV series called Sun Records for which Mead is also currently the Music Director.



By 2009 his work as a solo artist was also at the forefront of his career, he has released three albums of material since that time and has continued to garner critical acclaim from Country, Americana and Alt-Country media who regard his performance as a delightful homage to early Country music. A new album is slated for release in 2019 on Plowboy Records.



Touring with a live show that appeals to so many types of music fans, Chuck Mead has performed with his Grassy Knoll Boys across the nation and across the world. Past support slots with Old Crow Medicine Show, Marty Stuart, The Avett Brothers and Loretta Lynn, among others, he continues to be a favored performer among an eclectic variety of venue, festival and entertainment buyers. This is an upbeat set for anyone who loves that special blend of traditional Country, rhythmic Western Swing and high energy Rockabilly.

The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit play un-ruined country music, a term Lawrence coined to describe the band’s original, deep-rooted, honky tonk sound. They are 2019 and 2018 Ameripolitan Award nominees, in the Best Honky Tonk Group category, and two time winners of the “Best Country And Western Entertainer” (Chicago Music Awards).

Best known for his lead vocal on "The Old Black Hen", for the watershed Songs: Ohia- Magnolia Electric Company album, Peters leads the "Outfit" through his own finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar and harmonies, and Josh Piet on upright bass.
