The line up for the night is as follows;
6pm to 6:30pm--- Music by TJ http://tjz.music.tripod.com/
TJ Zeiler commenced his professional music career in 2004 and has, in a very short period of time, transitioned from a lucrative job developing missile training courses for US Navy pilots to near poverty in the entertainment field! He combines several music genres such as Vintage Rock & Roll, Folk, Country and Standards. He is available for Festivals, Coffee Houses, Concerts, Senior/Retirement venues, Piano Bar environs, Private Parties and Special Events. In other words, for any show where an entertainer in the EZ listening tradition of Burl Ives is desired. Some think he looks & sounds like him. Not satisfied with making very little money as a solo guitar player, he is also a member of HorsePlay...the Classic Western Band where he gets to split whatever pay &/or tips that come in three or four ways - http://horseplay.yolasite.com/. The really good news, he has fun making fun!
6:30pm to 7pm--- Holly Overin

8pm to 8:30pm--- Wicked Saints
Raw organic music with NO artificial sweeteners. It's GOOD for you!
"Our slogan isn’t completely true,” says Wicked Saints lead singer Paul McCarty. "Some is slightly toxic.” Wicked Saints' music is a cool eclectic mix of styles – from folk-rock, americana, swampy Louisiana grooves to reggae styled pop/blues, a driving beat, or sweet and heartfelt. Paul McCarty sings lead, and plays guitar and harmonica. Paul is joined by drummer, John Gannon and Bobby Thomas on accordion & keyboards.
You can hear Wicked Saints' debut album here. http://wickedsaints.net/

9pm to 9:30pm--- Barry Cullison www.bluepower.com
Barry Cullison’s dad played a ’46 flat top Gibson and knew every Hank Williams song there was. His mom sang harmony and played the harmonica and dulcimer. With his two musical sisters it was tough to find a harmony part while the family sang on car trips to pass the time. He was raised country but seduced by rock and roll. Barry has paid dues both as an actor and guitar player in Chicago, New York and now LA. TV shows like “X Files”, “Magnificent Seven” and “Cold Case” are fun and paid the bills. But he has a passion to play guitar and he keeps cranking out his own tunes. He is trying to reinvent the wheel with his songs so it’s a bit difficult to put a bead on what his style is. It can be furious and complex, political or funny. He can tear it up or bring it down. Barry would rather work on a song than watch TV, read a book or go to bed. In spite of this, he and his wife Laura have a beautiful 9-year old son, Darby, and Dar likes the guitar too.
