Jelly Ellington
Jonathan “Jelly” Ellington is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter based in Austin, TX by way of the mountains of Asheville, NC. His vocals are smooth and soulful with an edgy guitar style, chiming in elements of raw and expressive blues-based rock n’ roll. Jelly has developed a reputation for exciting and untamed live performances, and has shared the stage and recorded with Grammy Award-winning artists. He has been making his mark on the Austin scene, voted Top 10 "Best Guitarist" in 2018 and 2019 Austin Chronicle Austin Music Awards.

Jelly’s newest single Butterfly takes a turn from the lighthearted tones in his 2017 debut release All In straight onto a dirty and explosive new track. The outcome of a long-awaited project, Butterfly breaks new ground for the blues-rocker with the help of producer Dane (Anna Wise, Sonnymoon) infusing heavy beats and soundscapes alongside Jelly’s fretwork. Butterfly is a precursor to a much larger project set for release in 2019.
King Zero - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
King Zero
In a time where rock and roll seems to only fall into two distinctive categories, candy sweet pop rock and ear-splitting heavy metal, the musical emotion of King Zero defiantly stands apart from both genres. Bringing a sound reminiscent of the music you grew up hearing, yet still originally fresh and inspiring, the five individuals who make up the band blend a diverse and varied background into their own unique alternative sound. – Digital Darkness
Texas Rock-n-Roll outfit King Zero’s latest single “Drive” brings back the era of straight-ahead riff-driven rock accompanied by heartfelt lyrics, melodic hooks, well-crafted songwriting, and soulful vocals that is reminiscent of artists like Tom Petty, Eagles, Faces, and with a flare of Ryan Adams. It’s King Zero’s simplicity and dynamics that’s the real treasure here. It feels as if you stumbled into a bar circa 1976 and discovered your favorite new band. – Derek Sitter
