LARA BELL

 

Lara Bell is a rising singer/songwriter from the northern Illinois area.  Born and raised with country roots, she is a natural songbird. She’s performed numerous live shows between Chicagoland and Southern WI at various known venues since she was 16 years old. She is an accomplished musician of classical piano, guitar, and ukulele. Raining with innocence, Lara brings a freshness to the music industry with her romantic honesty; she has been writing for 7 years and has a few singles available online. Plans of an album are in store for the near future. Her genre diversity captures the crowd’s attention. Able to adapt to many styles, audience members have compared Lara’s music to Jewel, Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlile, Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan, amongst others. Lara has promising plans of recording and releasing more music, plus traveling to new places/venues to expand her career as a growing independent artist in  2019, and hopefully hit up music city, Nashville itself, over the next few months.

DECEMBER 27TH | 5 to 7P

DAVE MARTIN

 

Heartland balladeer Dave Martin describes his work as “95% autobiographical”, a statement attested to by his narratives about carefree exploits, comical two-bit criminals, and quieter reflections that appraise his place among his midwestern surroundings.

A University of Iowa Journalism graduate who is etching a songwriting sensibility that lies at the wry musical crossroads somewhere near where Jimmy Buffett and Greg Brown meet, Martin puts his journalistic skills to good use to tell stories that alternately poke fun at and thoughtfully regard the human condition; a soft, warm touch consistently ensured.


JANUARY 3rd | 5 to 7P

 

DADHAT

 

Dadhat is a live performance based duo that formed in the summer of 2018 at a music festival in Benton, Illinois. The duo consists of a keyboardist, Joe Floress, and a drummer, Jackson Gibbons.

They blend their dances together creatively and they enjoy the challenge of improvisation.

BOURBON COUNTRY

 

With a sound as sweet as its name, the acoustic driven duo of Bourbon Country blend ultra tight harmonies and smooth but driving guitars to give a rich dynamic sound to your favorite past and present country and rock hits.

While continuing to deliver country hits from the past and present, Bourbon Country has expanded its sound to deliver an eclectic mix of the best of traditional and modern country, country rock, and acoustic favorites. You’ll hear the boys play memorable hits from traditional country artisans like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Jr., modern country superstars like Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line, country rock tunesmiths like the Eagles and John Denver, pop hitmakers like Elton John, James Taylor, and America. And what acoustic act would be complete without the Beatles?  As successful bands and artists do, Bourbon Country continues to evolve, expanding its musical palette but always delivering the best in popular music from multiple styles.
