Jamie Weger and The High Ground - (Set time: 2:30 PM)
Jamie Weger and The High Ground
Jamie Weger & the High Ground is a 6 piece band based in southern Oklahoma, offering an original look on red dirt/southern rock music. Fresh off of a tour in Afghanistan, Jamie Weger (singer/songwriter) began to push his passion for writing and story telling into the music side of things. Along with Jeff Winnett(keyboard) they formed the band. Chris Maddox (Bass Guitar), high school acquaintance, joined the band with a musical background in punk and heavy rock. He lays the foundation for a high level of energy while performing. After various changes at guitar, including Jamie's brother, Chance Weger, the band recruited Jay Donihoo (Lead Guitar) who also attended high school with the other members. With over 15 years of experience playing guitar and his roots in Hard Rock and Blues, he brought a whole new layer to the sound they were looking for. Beau Sexton(drums) joined the band in 2017, as they prepared for the studio and opening for bands such as American Aquarium. His laid back style of keeping time aided in filling out the bands sounds and pushing them out of the garage band scene and onto the market.
The band has played at many notable venues including Love and War Texas and many smaller venues all over the southern Oklahoma and northern Texas areas. They’re currently focused on pushing their passion for music further to reach audiences near and far as well as continuing to write new music for their next album.
Justin Tipton - (Set time: 3:30 PM)
Justin Tipton
Dallas-based singer-songwriter, Justin Tipton, has been writing songs since he was 15 years old. While Justin always wanted to be a performer, he started writing songs as a therapeutic exercise until an old ex-2nd cousin-in-law (there are a lot of divorces in the family) invited him out to a local open-mic in Dallas. The owner liked his set so much, he offered him a couple of gigs at the venue, and although he had no equipment (besides a cheap guitar) he couldn’t turn down the offer.
Fast forward to 2018, Justin is coming off a national TV showing and recently recorded his debut album with longtime songwriting heroes, The Band of Heathens. As 2018 comes to a close, Justin Tipton looks forward to what 2019 has in store with the debut album (“Gimme Back What’s Mine”) set to release around April.
Hula Haze - (Set time: 4:20 PM)
Hula Haze
Hula Haze continues to perform and please audiences of all ages with blues, folk, americana, country, originals and covers.

His soulful voice and prolific songwriting combined with unique melodies create the perfect choice and perfect

setting for some awesome memories.
Troy Stone - (Set time: 5:15 PM)
Troy Stone
Troy Stone is a singer/songwriter based out of central Texas. Growing up listening to a variety of country and rock n roll influences from Merle Haggard to Tom Petty to Townes Van Zandt to Led Zepplin, Troy's sound is an Americana blend of folk story-telling, country soul, and rock n roll edge. Troy began honing his craft at Cheatham Street Warehouse with the help of Texas songwriting legend Kent Finlay. In 2011 he formed The Hill Country Gentlemen who recorded two records and were regulars at historic venues like Gruene Hall, The Saxon Pub, Cheatham Street Warehouse, and Poodie's Roadhouse before dissolving in 2016.

Troy plays solo shows and shows with his band, Troy Stone & the Spent Shells. Solo shows generally include an acoustic guitar, microphone, and harmonica rack, with percussion provided a tambourine on his right foot, and a stomp-box under his left. Troy Stone & the Spent Shells is a 4 to 5 piece band including Troy on lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and harmonicas. Clay Scott Rheinlander on drums, Bryan Cooper on bass, Michael Reeh on lead guitar, and SlimBawb Pearce on pedal steel.

Troy is currently working on his first solo record.
Yellow No. 5 - (Set time: 6:15 PM)
Yellow No. 5
Yellow No.5-
The originators of organic hip-hop (ɔrˈgænɪk hɪp hɑp): An authentically evolved musical style channeling the tonal qualities of jazz, funk, and old-school hip hop. Yellow No.5 curates the live experience by continually measuring and distilling the crowd’s vibe into a tonic of elation and F-U-N(k). Erick Fleming describes Yellow No. 5’s constant evolution of style as the form and function of “straight art”. This expression thru music is an ebb and flow of songwriting, emotion and live connection. Magic is created by channeling multiple musical styles in to a transcendent party resulting in honest emotion and FUN(k). Erick Fleming Aka Texas Wolf (guitar, vocals) - Started writing songs in the 6th grade. Erick is the shepherd of the sound, enjoying the instant gratification playing to and transporting the audience to another place. Mac Bain (drums) - Self taught on the piano. Mac Bain strives for the elation of the audience through collaboration and musical evolution. The drive of a calm, groovy beat and refined repetition develops the surreal responsibility of driving the party and sound. S. Price (saxophone) - Inspired by the real, values the different, strives to find the components of sound that will not make you hear, but feel the music. Real music makes you want to do something, be something, write something…it transcends sound into action. The evolution of music should parallel your own growth, forcing you to leave something behind that means something.

Joe Goodfunk (bass) – First instrument was the upright bass and later most influenced by the energy of punk rock. Joe is the glue that adheres the harmonic & melodic pole of the ensemble to the rhythmic pole. He is the constant in a sea of variables, the magnet that keeps the quintet grounded to the principles of funk.

Heath Fisher (vocals/scratches)– College dropout/pedigreed MC. Heath displays a range of rhythmic flows, various meters and atypical rhyme schemes. Heath is an abstract lyricist & songwriter whose aim is to “attack subject matter that has otherwise remained untouched” while connecting and “having fun”, transforming the spaceship into a party and steering it into unkown realms.
Safety Meeting - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Safety Meeting
Safety Meeting formed in 2014 in East Plano, Texas.

Late in 2014, Mark Evans, lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, was hosting an open mic Plano's downtown Arts District at a restaurant called Angela's at the Crosswalk. It occurred every Monday evening. It was at Angela's that Mike Smith, keyboards, showed up played a few songs, planting the seeds for what was to become Safety Meeting.

Mike loves hosting dinner parties where musicians can get together and jam in his home studio. At one such party, Erik Malm and Michael Marchioni came to hang out and see what kind of vibe could be created together. The group felt a natural connection and it was clear that there was great potential.

Enter Kris Cordell, drummer. Kris plays for Bone Doggie and the Hickory Street Hellraisers, a respected band out of Denton, Texas. Kris was invited and agreed to come and jam and the final piece immediately fell into place. Mark's home -- now where the band rehearses every week -- soon became the host ofr a weekly jam that has continue to this day.

After a couple of lame name attempts, the band settled on "Safety Meeting," as it seemed to suit the overall attitude and habits of the band.

"Life is fun. But you still have to be prepared for it," says Mark. "Safety Meeting embodies that philosophy. We have songs about life, with different moods and approaches, that also are upbeat and moving... so I think it works."

Mike Morgan and The Crawl - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Mike Morgan and The Crawl
Mike Morgan was born in Dallas on November 30, 1959, and grew up in nearby Hillsboro, Texas. Morgan displayed an avid interest in music as a youngster, listening intently to the impassioned soul sounds of Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett on local radio stations. He received his first guitar while in the third grade, but didn't begin to take playing seriously until he discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan's album, Texas Flood, in 1985.

"When I heard Stevie's first album, that was it," Morgan recalls. "I already knew how to play the guitar, but Stevie showed me a lot of things I didn't know. After that, I dove headlong into playing the blues."

As his prowess on the guitar developed, it became clear that he was not merely a Stevie knock-off, but rather an original player with a sound and style all his own. Mike moved to Dallas in 1986 and soon hooked up with experienced vocalist Darrell Nulisch (formerly with Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets and Ronnie Earl) to form The Crawl (named after an old jukebox hit by guitar great, Lonnie Brooks. Darrell had a tremendous knowledge of blues and a deep collection of blues records, and he exposed Morgan to the music of the Chicago blues scene and many of its key players.

Mike Morgan and The Crawl quickly made a name for themselves as one of the best contemporary blues bands in Texas, writing original songs that were on a par with the classics they chose to cover. After Nulisch left the band in 1989, Morgan set out to find a vocalist who would fit his desire for a broader-based R&B sound. He found the perfect match in Kansas City native and blues veteran Lee McBee, whose smoky, seasoned vocals were reminiscent of the legendary 1960s soul singers Morgan listened to while growing up. The fact that McBee was also an accomplished and revered harmonica player added more fuel to The Crawl's fire.

As Mike and Lee's collaboration proved popular with blues aficionados, appearances at the Benson & Hedges Blues Festival, the Dallas Blues Festival, the Atlantic City Blues Festival and the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival soon followed. Shortly before a performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Morgan's old pal Anson Funderburgh took Black Top owner Hammond Scott to a gig. Scott was so stunned by the band's talent and originality that he signed them to the label immediately following the Jazz Fest appearance.

Mike Morgan and The Crawl found a national audience with the release of their debut recording, Raw & Ready, in 1990. Backed up by extensive national and international touring, Mike Morgan and The Crawl continued to amaze their fans throughout the 1990s by releasing five highly regarded albums, Mighty Fine Dancin, Full Moon Over Dallas, Ain't Worried No More, Looky Here!, The Road and I Like The Way You Work It. Morgan even kept a high profile during some down time away from the band in 1994 by recording Let The Dogs Run, a highly acclaimed record that paired him with fellow Dallas guitarist Jim Suhler.

Meanwhile praise for Morgan and the band came flooding in. Guitar World Magazine called Morgan "a genuine blues guitar hero!!"

Blues Access Magazine raved, "Mike Morgan and the Crawl crank up an irrepressible of fresh gritty blues and romping Stax/Volt-era soul."

New Years Eve 1999 saw an end to the Morgan /McBee era of Mike Morgan and the Crawl. As Lee ventured out to do his own band back in his home state of Kansas, Morgan decided it was high time he took over as front man. After years of great vocalists / front men such as Lee McBee, Darrell Nulisch, Chris Whynaught and Keith Dunn, Mike was ready to take on the new challenge.

In 2000 Texas Man, Mike’s first vocal outing was released on Severn Records. Texas Man met rave reviews and was followed up in 2004 by “ Live in Dallas.”

2007 saw the release of the most current CD, Stronger Every Day. Stronger Every Day was released by Seven Records and has guest appearances by Lee McBee and Randy McAllister.

Mike has not been touring much since 2006. He is still playing mostly local gigs and a few scattered touring appearances. Mike is currently the sales manager at a Mesquite, TX based motorcycle dealership called "Action Suzuki / Kawasaki / Arctic Cat of Mesquite.

Mike is normally doing a three piece band with the rhythm support of Kevin Schermerhorn on drums and Drew Allain on bass.
