    101st Airborne Division Band

    Located in the Heart of the South, we are the 101st Airborne Division "Screaming Eagle" US Army Band. It is our privilege and honor to serve as professional soldier musicians, to deploy overseas along with our fellow soldiers instilling pride, esprit, and upholding our fine military tradition. We serve as musical ambassadors to foster morale and goodwill amongst our troops, coalition forces, as well as our community. Dating back over 230 years to the Revolutionary War, band members have always been an important part of the U.S. Army. The Army Band's mission concerns troop morale first and foremost. With assignments around the world, whether deployed or in garrison, Bandsmen offer a unique role in the military serving as a bridge between civilians and service-members. In garrison, we remind citizens of the Army's past: those that fell for their country and those that brought the country to a new era. As deployed bandsmen, our mission is to help our fellow service-members relax for a few hours, to remember how it feels to be home, and hopefully to enjoy an evening with live music performed by professional musicians!

  • Andy Brasher

    Andy Brasher

    After returning to Kentucky, Andy released his first full length original album, “Crows and Buzzards” in 2007. Locally and even back in Nashville, the album was received well and now the demand for Andy to play his original music at shows had outweighed the requests for cover material. “Crows and Buzzards” began to sell online across the country and even overseas. As the music spread, requests came in for a tour. In the time following the release of “Crows and Buzzards”, Andy made his way along the east coast and throughout the south playing bars, dives, campgrounds, festivals, coffee houses and street corners. In 2009, Andy and friend Dustin Bogue recorded ten of their songs and made an album and formed Brasher/Bogue. Brasher/Bogue started as a duet, but became a five piece band and started their touring career on Kenny Chesney's 2011 “Goin Coastal” tour. Years later, Brasher/Bogue has produced three albums of material, played large festivals and venues all over the U.S., and supported many top name national acts. In 2015, Andy refocused on a solo career, taking some time off from Brasher/Bogue and putting together a new incarnation of the Andy Brasher Band to play favorites from the Brasher/Bogue catalog as well as old and new Andy Brasher songs. Andy's songs have been featured in film and media productions. Andy's songs can also be heard on terrestrial, satellite and internet radio stations all across the US. With Brasher/Bogue and solo, Andy has performed concerts in support of many national acts including, Kid Rock, Kenny Chesney, Hank Williams Jr., Charlie Daniels Band and more... Andy has headlined shows all over the US and even internationally. Andy is a frequent guest at many songwriter festivals here in the US, including the Frank Brown International Songwriter's Fest and Key West Songwriter's Fest.

  • Dan Bowlds

    Dan Bowlds

    Dan’s songs tell a story with rhyme and are mainly about his life experiences. Even though he grew up in a "dirt poor" environment where the only "running water" he had was when he ran back from the well with a pail of water, he has good memories of his childhood where a person's worth was not measured in wealth, but in their willingness to do hard work and in the amount of sacrifice they were willing to do out of love for the well-being of the family. He could never just sit down and write a "hit" song without any motivation. His love and drive for song writing is not monetary. It comes from his desire to express his thoughts and feelings with others. His reward is in knowing that he has done that.

  • Rockturnal Emissions

    LightStruck

    Although they're a new act in this area, they have over 60 years of combined musical performing experience. They're called ROCKTURNAL EMISSIONS. What makes their duo so special is Deb. She has had to move back into the southern Indiana area to become care tender for her aging parents (actually, her father has since passed away), but, prior to that, she had quite a musical journey. Deb is 52 years old. When she graduated high school, she was one of those people who couldn't wait to leave the small town scene behind. So, she submitted an audition tape and was selected to be lead singer on a cruise line that ran from Tampa to Cozumel for 1.5 years. Deb is also a songwriter, and while in Florida, she signed a recording contract with Hurricane Records. However, Deb always wanted to try her hand at Broadway. So, she moved to New York City and began performing singing and dancing roles on Broadway. While in NYC, she happened to catch the ear of Marty Balin, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist with The Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and The Marty Balin Band. Marty invited her to accompany him to California to audition for a position as a backup singer with the Airplane. The tryout was successful, and, Deb joined the band. She performed and toured in this capacity until she had to return to this area. By a stroke of luck, our paths crossed and we've begun rehearsing to perform as much as possible around the area while she's here. I accompany Deb on acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonica, and background vocals. All it takes is someone to listen to Deb's voice once to recognize what a fantastic singer and performer she is. We began performing in the tri-state area New Year’s Eve and are quickly becoming established as a dynamic, high energy duo. We recently competed in the Owensboro’s Got Talent competition to get some local exposure and placed 2nd out of 45 entrants.

    The Beat Daddys

    Formed in 1986 by core members Larry Grisham and Tommy Stillwell, The Beat Daddys have spent almost 30 years bringing their blend of American roots music to audiences around the world. With nine international CD releases, several film & TV soundtrack credits, and countless shows in the US and abroad, The Beat Daddys are a duo with authentic American roots. Coming of age in rural Kentucky where the nearest interstate highway was 100 miles away, Tommy Stillwell and Larry Grisham’s musical journey was shaped by their families and the deep music traditions of Kentucky and the South. Grisham, who can claim country music icon Merle Travis as a family member, spent his early years in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Muhlenberg County has a rich history of musical legends, not only Travis, but the Everly Brothers and thumb picking legend Mose Rager. During these years, Larry was immersed in fiddle, harp and guitar playing sessions that took place in his family’s living room. On a donated piano from a local church, Grisham began his music journey. Grisham’s gospel music loving grandfather was not happy with his loud rock and roll playing. Enraged, he pushed the piano out of the house into the front yard and set it a fire. But Grisham’s musical path didn't end with the piano going up in flames. In the Ohio River town of Cloverport, Kentucky, Tommy Stillwell's introduction to the power of music came in the form of Pentacostal tent revivals and churches. Performing at the age of 8 as the drummer for the preacher’s gospel band, Stillwell experienced music’s emotional power early in his life. During these soul-stirring services, Stillwell studied the guitar playing preacher and quickly emulated the strumming and fingering of the chords the preacher made. "Still know that first song I copied from him today, ‘He's All I Need," says Stillwell.

    Troy Miller

    Troy Miller is a seasoned acoustic musician hailing from Evansville, Indiana where he is a celebrated hometown singer/songwriter. Troy has been playing and singing nearly all of his life. At the tender age of 8 years old, he grabbed a guitar and played in open tuning. Chuck Berry is the reason why Troy wanted to play the guitar and Elvis Presley was used as an incentive to pick up sticks in the yard. He loved Elvis so much his parents told him that if he picked up all the sticks in the yard, Elvis might land his plane there. He picked up a lot of sticks. When he was 10 years old, he bought a guitar for five dollars from a used car lot and taught himself how to play chords. He hasn't put a guitar down since and he quit picking up sticks. Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard were his influences to become a singer/songwriter and he now looks to Southern Culture on the Skids to remember that music is supposed to be fun. Entertaining professionally since the age of 18 in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, Troy has played over 4,000 shows in venues from coffee houses to the 12,500 seat Memorial Coliseum. He plays his large repertoire of Americana roots, blues, country, rock and original music to a loyal army of fans in the Tri-State area and has packed venues with captivated audiences. Troy's unique booming voice, reminiscent of Waylon Jennings and Tom Waits, coupled with his passionate guitar playing, give birth to his soul-stirring, high-energy stage show that leaves people yearning for more. His dynamic performances and his gift for connecting with a wide range of audiences have earned Troy several awards from News4U including People's Choice, Best Male Vocalist, Best Guitarist, and Best Performer. He's been featured in numerous magazines such as Evansville Living and Thunder Roads.
