About Amoramora:
Featuring an upbeat blend of Funk, Bluegrass, African Highlife and Jazz Fusion, these Rocky Mountain Boys harken back to the early days of the jam-rock scene that just oozed positivity which nurtured bands like Blind Melon, String Cheese Incident, and Strangefolk. Fueled by high-energy improvisation, the undeniable joy this quartet shares onstage and offstage is reflected by their devout and growing fanbase, the Amorons. Based out of Boulder, CO, the band has a commitment to consistently changing setlists, expanding their already extensive catalog of original material, and stirring the musical gumbo with their own ‘ Cosmic Mountain Funk'. Along with the deep instrumental blend of guitar, keyboard, trumpet, EWI, bass & drums, all four members are also vocalists.

About Wes Duffy Trio:
Wes Duffy Trio is a high energy newgrass trio based out of Peoria, Illinois. The group formed when Wes Duffy invited Tim Brickner and Daniel Watkins to accompany him for a performance on WTVP's State & Water. Encouraged by the response, they have been playing ever since. Drawing from various musical influences, they utilize mandolin, bass, and guitar to create a fresh progressive sound.

Official Tyler Childers Afterparty: Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound

About Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound:
When Arlo takes the stage, prepare to feel every heart in the room begin to crumble under the weight of honesty and emotion in McKinley’s lyrics. He's been on the mission of writing truthful and honest songs since his self titled release Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound (2014).

Arlo's songwriting crosses genres of country-folk/rock with gobs of soul and deep and profound introspection. Being billed alongside musicians such as Tyler Childers, John Moreland, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle and many others have helped Arlo McKinley get his name outside his hometown of Cincinnati and has gained him fans across the US & Europe.

Arlo’s sophomore album Die Midwestern Vol. 1 comes out in early 2019, and is sure to continue cementing him as a one of the important voices in American music that speak to love, struggle, loss & redemption.

About Jeremy David Baker:
Jeremy David Baker is an American folk rock artist, originally from Florida. He signed with Green Shoe Records in 2015. Jeremy’s music tells of hope, loss, and revival. His strong voice is full of texture and emotion. His first album with Green Shoe Records is in its final stages and will be released in early 2016.

Jeremy grew up in a very musical family. It has always been a Baker tradition to pass the guitar around at family events. His musical upbringing was an exceptionally eclectic search, carrying Jeremy from one genre to the next. He was raised on early rock n’ roll by the likes of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. As a young teen, he discovered punk rock and spent a few years playing angsty fast-paced anthems before falling in love with old, classic, country folk music.

“If you dig through my record collection you’ll find blues, jazz, punk, metal, country, even a little hip hop. No jam bands though…never jam bands.”

Now, as a solo artist, he reveals the culmination of years spent refining a melting-pot sound which is both inventive and enchanting.
