All featured bands have Missouri roots except our very special out of state friends JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers (Kentucky) and the Hogslop String Band (Tennessee). Enjoy the show(s)! 28


Pokey LaFarge It's not retro music, it's American music that never died. Pokey LaFarge is a musician, songwriter, bandleader, entertainer, innovator & preservationist, whose well-rounded arsenal of talents has placed him at the forefront of American music. Over the last decade, Pokey has won the hearts of music lovers across the globe with his creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues & western swing, all while writing songs that ring true and fine in both spirit & sound. His music transcends the confines of genre, continually challenging the notion that tradition-bearers fail to push musical boundaries. Cleverly striding between numerous forms of traditional American music, Pokey has crafted a genre all his own, marked in its accessible ingenuity. Learn more: www.pokeylafarge.net

29


JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers The Dirt Daubers have come down from the mountains and landed squarely in the middle of the Mississippi Delta. Yes, you heard right... J.D. Wilkes (of the Legendary Shack Shakers) and his former Old- Time band have decided to plug in to both his blues roots and a regulation, A.C. power socket. Having recently added electric guitar and drums, the Dirt Daubers are now poised to expand the appeal of their roots-based tunes with a whole new Swamp-Blues/Rock n Roll kick! www.thedirtdaubers.net Man in the Ring Man in the Ring is the beloved folk rock band from Columbia, Missouri. Their music explores numerous genres and artistic aspects. The five piece band, featuring the crowd-pleasing electric violin, is community favorite playing charity events, local festivals (including three appearances at the annual Roots n Blues n BBQ festival), and headlining nostalgic venues throughout Columbia. With over 50 years of combined musical experience, the band bears an impressive line-up of professional musicians who aren’t afraid to live up to the challenge of Man in the Ring’s constantly evolving sound. Learn more at: www.maninthering.com

30


Honky Suckle - / honk-`e suck-ul'/ noun; a band from Southwest Missouri ready to melt faces with original roots rock grass influences, and a rowdy live show with harmony and intensity unmatched. Blending rock and punk influences with roots music's raw power, they bring a real intensity seldom heard. The HillBenders Undeniably the hottest young band on the acoustic scene, The HillBenders have been winning over audiences from coast to coast with their unique style, original compositions and relentless drive. These buzz-worthy bluegrass whiz-kids are quickly rising above many of their peers and gaining international recognition for their aggressive combination of contemporary influences with traditional inspiration and instrumentation, as well as their infectiously energetic stage performances. Learn more: www.hillBenders.com The Kay Brothers Genyewine Bonafide Hootin' N' Hollerin' Hillybillyin' Ozark Stompgrass and What Nots. The spirit of Missouri 'Stompgrass' lives on with The Kay Brothers. The members are no strangers to the Midwest music scene. Hailing from such bands as The Hipnecks, The Hatrick, Mary & the Giant, and even a metal band - Ghost in the Machine - the players have been burning barns down since they were knee-high and can chug moonshine without shedding a single tear. Armed with Upright Bass, Fiddle, Guitar, Harmonicas, bass drum, washboard, and sibling harmonies, they make a lot of noise... Just be careful not to crack a heel.

31


The Ben Miller Band Hailing from Joplin, Missouri, The Ben Miller Band is a one-of-a kind trio that combines the frenetic energy of bluegrass, the soul of the delta blues and the haunted spirit of Appalachian mountain music. Band members Ben Miller, Scott Leeper, and Doug Dicharry create a unique and modern sound while continuing the tradition of blending together many different musical styles, which has long been a trait of their native Ozarks.

The Hog Slop String Band The Hog Slop String Band is a Nashville based old time string band comprised of seven energetic young musicians hailing from Georgia, Tennessee, California and North Carolina. Featuring Casy Meikle and Kevin Martin on fiddles, Graham Sherrill on banjo, Gabe Zorbanos on guitar, Robert Hardy (RH) Dyar Jr. on mandolin, Daniel Allen Frazier Jr. on washboard and Casey McBride on the washtub bass, these boys surely raise a ruckus.

Aaron Kamm and the One Drops A staple of the St.Louis music scene, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops play an intoxicating concoction of Roots Reggae and Mississippi River Blues. Improv-laced Jams, dubbed out grooves and Effervescent Vocals make this band must see. After the release of there second studio album "Grow" in 2010, this independent trio is beginning to forge their way across the country.

32


The Mojo Roots Soul-soaked blues from the heart of the Midwest. Their brand of harp-driven, soul-soaked blues is nothing short of electrifying, shifting effortlessly from a driving, hard-hitting shuffle to an aching, tear-dripping slow blues. The Mojo Roots are captivating audiences all across the Midwest. Learn more: www.themojoroots.com Old Salt Union Old Salt Union is a non-traditional 5 piece string band from St. Louis. There has been a variety of styles conveyed in their songs from Baroque to Newgrass to Bluegrass to Jamgrass. Look for the band at the 2013 Wakarusa music festival. www.oldsaltunion.com We Live in Public We Live in Public comes armed with the unique ability to play everything from intimate acoustic sets to full-fledged rock shows. Employing a spicy blend of rock, funk, pop and blues, the group relies on powerful harmonies, danceable rhythms and clever songwriting to entice and entertain its audiences. Flood Brothers The Flood Brothers are a two man THUMP MACHINE whose infectious melodies and animal rhythms will have your bones shakin' outta your boots! Heavily influenced by the early Rock 'N Roll sounds of Memphis and Deep Blues of North Mississippi.

33


Molly Gene One Whoaman Band Molly Gene is a true one person band. She produces a full band sound all by herself with ferocious slide guitar, harmonica, and sings with a powerful voice, all whilst kicking out beats on her custom Farmer Footdrum. Molly strives to rock your face off, and stands on her own as one of the best performers out there. She needs no band. It's not just a mans world anymore, make way for the Whoaman. Plaid to the Bone It’s not just bagpipes. Plaid to the Bone is Rock. A full rock band including Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Bagpipes - rocking out everything from traditional bagpipe music, contemporary bagpipe music, cover tunes, and original rock music. Dirt Leg Benders An American string band whose five members hail from Jefferson City MO, on the banks of the Missouri River. The Dirt Legs have years of combined experience playing in electric bands, but have distilled that collective experience down to the acoustic essence of American music: the string band.Look for their traveling show throughout the Jamboree! River Ghost Revue RGR specializes in rural American folk music. The unique sound comes from a blending of elements from bluegrass, country & western, and singer-songwriter Americana. Sunshine Mamas A couple of ladies from the midwest who love the old timey folk/bluegrass music and are performing their version this sound. From the twangy vocals, to the strumming guitar, to the sweet picking of the mandolin they've created our own sound they call folkgrass. Burn Circus Burn Circus is a fire spinning troupe and burner community offering fire dancing performances at festivals and events, in backyards and on riverbanks. We are glad to welcome them back to Kemper Park again this year!
