    Evan Meulemans is a nationally touring singer-songwriter who is native to central Wisconsin and currently resides in Rochester, NY.   From finger-plucking in the evergreen northwoods of Wisconsin to strumming on the black sand beaches of Hawaii, Evan brings his listeners with him on a journey of self discovery. Soulful and upbeat, Evan's acoustic/folk/reggae/blues music leaves one feeling positively charged and wanting to hear more.

    White Woods is a band of good friends and high school buddies from Springwater, NY. They've been playing together since 2010, playing local shows at Water Street Music, the Bug Jar, house parties, and numerous festivals. They also opened for The Head and The Heart in Ithaca, NY. The members all participate in writing their songs which are characterized as hipster hillbilly indie folk rock. Theyíve produced three CDís in the last 5 years.





    Two Hour Delay

  • 2:10 pm - 3:25 pm Two Hour Delay
    Links: ReverbNation

    Two Hour Delay brings a blend of new music drawing upon influences from rock & roll, blues, folk, country & bluegrass. Led by singer/songwriter Tim Burns (a former resident of Naples NY!), the band performs a mix of strong original, rootsy Americana. Since the release of their debut CD in 2010, this four piece has been performing regularly. We look forward to a tight and spirited set at the Naples Grape Festival!





    Bobby Henrie and the Goners

  • 3:45 pm - 5:00 pm Bobby Henrie and the Goners
    Links: Facebook

    Bobby Henrie and the Goners play authentic rockabilly and roots rock-n-roll in the tradition of musicians that defined the genre in the 1950s; Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Burnet. In their lean trio format, the Goners are respectful of the music that preceded and influenced early rock-n-roll and are equally comfortable with country, blues and swing. Bobby Henrie is a performer of exceptional ability and range. As a guitarist with an unorthodox (flipped, lefty) technique, he can rip through a heady brew of raw roots rock, blistering flatpicking, smoking blues or smooth jazz. His vocal style is heartfelt, well honed and true to the style whether it's tough rocking or sultry swing.

Old Hippies

  • 11:00 am - 12:15 pm Old Hippies (Trio)
    Links: ReverbNation

    For these time-traveling old hippies, it has always been about the music. Beginning on front porches, in fields and parks and around the campfires of the sixties, the seed was planted. It has grown over the years as they have traveled across the North American continent, entertaining countless numbers of entertainment revelers. Now they've come full circle with an enduring passion for the music of their youth, and theyíve brought with them unmistakable vocal harmonies and acoustic sounds.





    Ten Cent Howl

  • 12:35 pm - 1:50 pm Ten Cent Howl
    Links: Web Site ReverbNation

    Back before computers and cell phones and i-everything, when we were still trying to find our way, in the corners and pockets of our country when things were simpler, though always complicated by the human condition, there was music. It spoke of the lives of our families; the older generations before you or me, before Mom and Dad, before Grandma and Grandpa. It was the voice of life and family and experience and love and heartbreak. It is where we come from and who we are; our roots. Generations later, Ten Cent Howl has distilled that distinctly American experience into song once more.





    Mighty High and Dry

  • 2:10 pm - 3:25 pm Mighty High and Dry
    Links: Web Site ReverbNation

    Mighty High and Dryís rock-soul-gravel blast is rooted by Alan Murphy's guttural-then-smooth vocals, Kyle Vock's deep-digging bass, Chris Teal's driving drums and Mike Frederick's dirty guitar talk. Enjoy this band like a pastor enjoys a Sunday afternoon cocktail; whether you're a believer or not, you'll feel it.





    Hard Logic

  • 3:45 pm - 5:00 pm Hard Logic
    Links: Web Site ReverbNation

    Founded in 2001, Hard Logic has never been a traditional jazz fusion group.  By combining old school jazz-fusionís energy and improvisation with a driving, more contemporary sound the group appeals to a wide range of listeners. Over a span of fourteen years, the group has developed a large repertoire of original music and has released three full-length CDs. Charismatic sax-man Paul DeLoria has always been the leader, featured player and songwriter of the precision instrumental ensemble. Together with keyboardist Greg Gilmore, the two musicians have written the majority of Hard Logicís original compositions.
