Clave Con Alma
Clave Con Alma is a seven member latin jazz combo which focuses primarily upon traditional American jazz harmony and improvisation expressed through latin rhythmic textures such as Afro Cuban, Cha Cha, and Bossa. Clave Con Alma performs a variety of existing literature emanating from both U.S. coasts and from Central and South America and representing exciting music from such favorites as Ray Baretto, Bill Cunliffe, Michael Philip Mossman, Pancho Sanchez, Cal Tjader, The Bronx Horns and many others, as well as Clave Con Alma’s original material. The band's name is a blending of terms. "Clave" is one of the fundamental rhythmic constructs of latin music typically expressed as the 3,2 or the 2,3 beat combination often heard in within Latin styles. It is played by striking to wooden sticks (the claves) together to produce a piercing rhythm that is easily heard. "Con Alma" translates to "with soul". So the combination produces something like "Latin Rhythm with Soul", which is how we think of our music.

Damon K. Clark
Very few artists successfully cross back and forth from jazz to classical and back again: Wynton Marsalis, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and Arturo Sandoval come to mind. But now add to the list Dallas vocalist Damon K. Clark. Already acclaimed for his unusual sensitivity, versatility and virtuosity, Clark is as much at home with Thelonius Monk’s “’Round Midnight” as he is with Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma.” The mellifluous tenor minimizes the aesthetic distance between the classical and jazz worlds.

Rhythmators
Originally from Fort Worth, The Rhythmators first came together as sidemen for Texas roadhouse legend Delbert McClinton. Originally known as PUMP, with fellow Texan Randy Cobb on guitar. The band’s first regular gigs were in Colorado. They were so well received that they stayed on, much to the delight of the ski towns where their brand of Texas Soul Rockin’ Blues was a hit. They based out of Colorado for more than two years, developing their own style. When the opportunity to play with national acts came, they went their separate ways settling in different parts of the country. Clifton went to North Carolina, working the east coast to Key West, Dohoney to Los Angeles, CA and Stockton back to Texas via New Orleans, but they remained in touch. After touring with national and international acts, recording for major labels and on various television and film scores, as well as being in demand session players, the three Texans have come full circle to reunite as THE RHYTHMATORS. They are currently established on the DFW music scene as an R&B group performing their original music, as well as arrangements of blues and soul classics.

Chaka Demis & Pliers has cancelled their performance. Vinyl Stripes will perform instead. Chaka Demus & Pliers are Jamaicans John Taylor (Chaka Demus) and Everton Bonner (Pliers), active together since 1992.

Both Chaka Demus and Pliers had established successful solo careers prior to combining their efforts. They are best known for their massive hits in the ‘90s - as well as the UK number 1 album “Tease Me” – and Chaka’s collaborations with Yellowman. The duo and their band have been alighting dance floors now for over 20 years so this is not a show to miss!

Josh Halverson
On his new Americana album, One Shot, Texas singer-songwriter Josh Halverson beautifully channels the wide-open vistas of his home roots in the Texas panhandle. His luminous voice rings clear over these audio landscapes, resonating with unusual clarity and honesty. Charting the bounds of the human heart, he approaches time-honored topics like heartbreak and devotion with a sense of hard-won innocence. And that’s the seeming paradox at the core of his music: the tension between bitter wisdom and the need to preserve a sense of wonder at the world. Josh appeared on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2016.

Doyle Bramhall II
One of the most distinctive vocalists, guitarists, composers and producers in contemporary music, Doyle Bramhall II is a rare and distinctive guitarist who plays left-handed, but with his instrument strung for a right-hander and flipped backwards. Indeed, none other than Eric Clapton, with whom Bramhall has worked with for more than a decade, lauds him as one of the most gifted guitarists he has ever encountered. Early in his career he was befriended and supported by Stevie Ray Vaughen. When he was 18, Bramhall was recruited by Jimmie to play with the Fabulous Thunderbirds. After Stevie’s tragic death in 1990, Bramhall II and Charlie Sexton formed the Arc Angels with Stevie Ray’s fabled Double Trouble rhythm section of drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon. His fourth solo album, Rich Man, is a watershed achievement for Bramhall, both in terms of the many music styles in the tracks—which begin and end with his fundamental American blues influences and in between follow his global music explorations and arrangements—and the inner examinations resulting in the spiritual growth expressed in the lyrics.

Rodney Crowell
Rodney Crowell has been doing this for a while. In fact, his career has been so long and varied that you have to specify exactly which this you’re talking about. There’s the record-making, which dates back to 1978 (when he released Ain’t Living Long Like This), peaked commercially a decade later (with Diamonds & Dirt, which yielded five number-one country hits), and has only grown in sophistication and power in recent years. There’s the fiercely lyrical and personal songwriting, which has attracted the attention of everyone from Bob Seger (who famously covered “Shame On the Moon”) to Keith Urban (who had a number-one hit with “Making Memories of Us”). And then there’s the autobiographical writing, which extends beyond the music world to a memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks, which was published in 2011. On his new album, Close Ties, Crowell both demonstrates his strengths as a songwriter and illustrates how he has learned to balance personal recollection, literary sophistication, and his profound musical reach. It’s at once his most intimate record and his most accessible, the product of years of understanding the ways songs can enter—and be entered by—life
